- Innate waveclear and harass in passive (minions won't attack you if your passive strike hits the enemy laner unless you attack the laner directly for it)
- penetrating Q for poke positional for harassment, plus AD steroid while on path
- Defensive W can immediately reverse a situation or save you from a gank (by blocking a CC the jungler or laner sends)
- E can be used defensively or to force a reposition of the enemy
- R can serve as a backup teleport if walking back to lane or as hard gank presence when combined with TP (teleport to a ward outside of enemy vision and R in)
- R can also serve as an emergency nuke in trades
- Rushing Tiamat = insane waveclear + added nuke for harass
Follow Tiamat with a Cleaver and you will be winning trades immediately, assuming you were at least even with your enemy.
