Asterion’s Buckler is a unique item intended more toward assisting the wearer’s team than the wearer themselves. While the wielder will benefit from the aura it provides, there are numerous other items that give stronger effects that Asterion’s Buckler. That said, the aura it gives the team can greatly enhance their power in team fights and give your team a solid edge in the match.

Update: Upon testing, we found that you have to get very close to allies (nearly melee range) to proc War Cry, but once you do, it applies to that ally for 2-3 seconds. Therefore, you should jump to an ally that’s being attacked for a moment before getting away, particularly if you’re playing a squishy support like Peura.

Recommended Heroes and/or Situation:

Supports and tanks would do best with this item, they needing to stay near teammates and benefitting the most from the stats it provides. If a tank holds it, the team’s front line will grow much solider. Conversely, in the hands of a support, Asterion’s Buckler can harden the team’s squishier heroes as it improves the damage they deal.

    • We have an article explaining units here. To answer your question, 200 units is melee attack range, so it would be the same size as the circle that comes up when holding down the attack button on a standard melee character.
