btw whats the idea behind 4 mana, 1 level earlier icemage? iv seen ppl do it occasionally but imo if u want earlier icemage u can still do it with 5 mana and it will still 1 combo ppl due to ur sheer damage output if u want to do early pot style

I don't think it's the right build to use.
Theoretically SH should never deny taking control over lane creep and go pvp straight away.
SH needs to control every single creep to ensure the geological(?) advantage in pvp strats.
So getting ice mage too early doesn't help you at all, unless you're on a side lane and going super aggro card+pot strat.
Otherwise, always get enough mana/atk stat to take complete lane control first then get the ult.

And about mana points, I tried 4mana ice mage, 6mana ice mage, and 6mana soul wave.
I concluded that for any ult 5mana is the best and safest in terms of creep control, pvp, etc.
Although 6mana soul wave is a viable stat if you want to save gas that are used by extra mana packs + mana regens.

Oh, and early aggro with SH is extremely risky in long terms.
You must get faster shields than anyone else to maintain pvp ability till mid-late game,
so minimize the usage of cards/pots till you get enough shields/portal. (typical ShieldJ mindset I assume)

Relax, Barsark wants to ban your Mechatron. Since he's never seen you do badly with it, (but you've played it less).

generally how to lane against things with sh falls into 3 categories: outpush -> support lanes, outpush + kill and dominate, zone the lane and control the flow of the game by helpin other lanes

So true, but I was planning to write out which option works best vs each character,
how to position yourself, what skills you have to be most careful, what skills you need to blink out, etc.
Thanks for categorizing that though Smile

(tho that categorisation only is true for icemage - for soulwave just push as hard and as fast as u can then just add support dps everywhere)
