    With its departure, Dawnbase will be going into permanent read-only mode and will remain as both an archive of information about Infinite Crisis, and a reminder of the times we all had with the game.

    We've moved on to new pastures, and we'd love it if you'd join us. We're building a site for Keystone, the new arena shooter from Digital Extremes (of Warframe fame). Join us at keystone.gg!

    Hats off to you all. It was a pleasure, ladies and gentlemen.

    Stolen Powers
    Hi and welcome to another Grommash guide!

    This is by far my favorite champion to play!!!

    Here are some basic things to know, when playing Aquaman.
    [list=1]
  • He is ment to be an ap carry, not a hybrid, not ad, simply a AP carry!!
  • At level 3 you can beast mode any mid champion.
  • If you miss with your dash as your going in to poke ( with your 3 step combo q-e-basic-w-basic-e) , simply turn around 0_o. Basics don\'t count towards my 3 step combo, so don\'t even try to be a smarta** about it.
  • Your a poke champion so don\'t all in until your tank says so.
  • Enjoy this beats, for he is a GOD!!!
    [/list]


    Ability Order
    [list=1]
  • Trident of the King (Q). This is your main source of damage and poke. Just sit back and chuck your spear at them allday long!!! Also used as an all in tactic 1v1.
  • Stagger (W). This is your only cc and is one hell of one. This gives you the ability to get in and out, without taking any damage at all; or little at that. Used in another one of my combos, it can set-up your finsher or fatality!!! (e-e-basic-w-r)
  • Undertow (E). This is what you use to make up distance, either in chasing or fleeing. Time this nicely and you will be unstoppable.
  • Might of Atlantis (R). Don\'t for 1 second let this ult fool you. It has multiple uses and should be used that way. Combined with your Trident of the King (Q) it is used as a source of catching your ops. Dashing you at them at full speed. Combined with your Stagger (W) it is used as a finishing move. Dunking your ops into hell. Combined with your Undertow (E) it is used to catch a fleeing enemy and fling them at your team, or to stop a enemy chasing your mate.
  • Rising Tide (Passive). Not only does this skill give you health, but is also used to buff your damage. Get this early it is beast. Anytime you can boost your damage like this, go for it !!!
    [/list]


    Stolen Powers
    [list=1]
  • Barrier aka Sheild. Saves your bum from all in or all outs !!!
  • Green Lantern Camera\'s. The ability to control the map through vision is key in any moba. It\'s no diffrent here especially if your mid and they come from multiple positions to gank.
    [/list]


    Starter Items
    [list=1]
  • The Medusa Mask (2). Health regen and mana regen are what I like to use with any of my ap mids. Being able to sustain your lane and farm longer, will boost you ahead of any mid laner.
  • Max health pots just keeps you in lane longer.
  • You got 50 extra, why not go for that will pot.
    [/list]


    Core Items
    [list=1]
  • Explaing exactally how I do this, will make your time with Aquaman a whole lot better. This is exactally how you should build him and exactally in this order.
  • The Logoz (2). You want to rush your logoz to level (2). This acts as your ap bloodthirster. Collecting you ap throughout your farming experiance.
  • Cosmic Belt (3). This item is so key on any ap champion, giving you the ability to poke your enemy to the ground. While being tanky this item is just super beast mode. Shinazol!!!
  • Radion Shard (***). This is used as a filler item only!!! If you do not have enough gold to get your Starheart you get this item at w.e rank you gold allows. As soon as you have enough for Starheart being w.e level your trying to get it to (aka ranking it 1 at a time), sell your Radion Shard to make up the diffrence. Example ( I go to base with 900 gold, I\'m 600 short of my rank 1 Starheart, so I buy rank 3 Radion Shard. As soon as I make-up that other 600 gold. I sell my Radion Shard and get lvl 1 Starheart.)                                            Now that being said you repeast this process until you have rank 3 Starheart.
  • Psi-Scimitar (3). Keep it active at all times. Makes your auto inbetween spells rediculously strong. With any good player, your going to auto inbetween spells.
  • The Logoz (3). I finish it off here, because its fairly cheap to do so.
  • The Book of Eternity (2). Being a poke champion and it being your main source of damage, spell pen makes it hit that much harder!!!
  • Pandora\'s Box (4). Turns you into an assassin, being capable of chasing down any squishy or fleeing the battle.
    [/list]


    Optional Items
    [list=1]
  • Neron\'s Contract (4). If you keep getting your azz beat by ad\'s, grab this and say \" When your feeling like a pimp, go and brush your itch off\".
  • Eclipso\'s Diamond (2). This is a very situational item, being it\'s mainly a good source vs mele ap.
  • Ra\'s al Ghul\'s Robe (2). If your getting dove on and just can\'t survive team fights, grab this little guardian angel and call it a day.
    [/list]


    Augments
    [list=1]
  • S.T.A.R Labs Augment ( code name BLAST ). 4.21 Power Damage / 1.8 Power Pen ( page 1 )
  • S.T.A.R Labs Augment ( code name ORION ). 0.53 Power Damage (scaling) / 1.8 Power Pen ( page 1)
  • Queen Industries Augment ( code name YEW ). 3.24 Power Damage / 1.39 Power Pen ( page 1 )
  • Lex Corp Augment ( code name VIPER ). 3.51 Power Damage / 1.5 Power Pen ( page 1 )
    [/list]
    The reason I choose these runes are for early game dominance. This build gives you so much early damage, it\'s insane. I choose flat Runes over scaling, for that early game control.



    Mods
    [list=1]
  • Empowered Nil Weapon ( Recycle ) ( page 4 ). Recycle is the best option you can go with, at the start of the game. This helps you farm greatly. 
  • Capacity The Logoz ( +10 stacks ) ( page 10 ). Build up that ap as high as you can get it!!!
  • Empowered Psi-Scimitar ( +50 ) ( page 4 ). Put more damage on that auto. Makes your sequence through chainging your spells and auto\'s SHINAZOL!!!
    [/list]


    This is how I like to play Aquaman mid and pretty much any of my ap mids. He is a high mobile champion, with insane amounts of poke and damage.

    Hope you enjoy and as always if you have any questions be free to ask!!!

    and i think you should also think of maxing w after q, it provides a really good burst, when using q, e in then w and ult can be pretty much easy kill

    The reason why I choose to go passive after q, is because the boost in damage and self healing. I could test out the nil weapon strat, but mainly what you do from 1-5 is poke and the medusa's is what gives you the will to be able too. I got most of this info from kon and have tested it out thoroughly. I will also love to make guides with you. Just let me know what you would like to do with it. I can log on ts and we can figure it all out.

    Also i'm looking for someone to make guides with, since i'm a total noob when it comes to create stuffs for the guides, feel like could be great making new players catch up to current levels/ raising current levels for more competitive plays :D

    you should put on tips for playing aqua too :D also try out nil weapon on aqua, after skill if you attack you'll gain 18 hp, pretty sure is the bug because the game recognize his attack with passive is 2 attacks
