Skills increasing order of Astrid
Passive: Bladed Guardian
When the health is lower than 80%, Astrid will create a shield that absorbs 500 (+75 per level) damage for 4 seconds. Each basic attack or hit attack reduces shield cooldown by 3 seconds (monsters and minions halve the time).
Skill 1: Spin Slash
She swings her sword to its max, dealing 150/200/250/300/350/400 (+1.1 Attack Attack) physical damage to nearby enemies. Enemies hit to give her a 20/24/28/32/36/40% attack speed, and an additional 5% for each enemy hero victim, up to a maximum of 25%; The effect lasts 3 seconds.
Skill 2: Fearless Charge
She dashes in the target direction, causing the next attack to deal 60/90/120/150/180/210 (+1.5 Attack Attack) physical damage, and slow 50% of the movement speed of the hit enemy for 1.5 seconds Also reduces victim’s armor by 30% for 4 seconds. The basic attack against heroes reduces Courage cooldown by 1 second (hitting multiple heroes does not stack).
Skill 3: Dire Blow
She concentrates power for 2 seconds to help immunity to all damage and crowd control. After 1.5 seconds she swings her sword to deal 400/600/800 (+2.0 Attack Attack) physical damage. If the target’s current health% is higher than that of Astrid, the victim will be stunned for 1.5 seconds, and if it is lower, take additional true damage equal to 16% of the missing health. Winning a champion will instantly heal the passive.

How to play Astrid
At the beginning of the game, if you do not have to support your teammates in the jungle or watch the jungle, move quickly to your lane and clear the waves that are pushing in. When clearing creeps, keep an eye on the enemy hero’s movement so you can chase as soon as you clear the creeps slower than the enemy. In addition, you need to pay attention to the small map to be able to detect and warn your teammates when you see the enemy team’s jungler.
If you have free time, you can get the bird of light by your lane. It will give a vision inside the enemy jungle to your team. And give you a little more experience, plus some gold.
Mid and late game
Since Astrid obtained 2 items, that is when she possesses a formidable strength and stamina resistance.
In the mid-game, players should still maintain the game of pushing creeps. Besides that, you can move to the mid lane to help your teammates ganking. Or you move to the enemy jungle to steal a few jungle monsters, if you are luckier you can steal the jungle buff. This will greatly reduce the danger of the enemy jungler.
In the fighting phase, you should choose the position and time to participate in the fight. Focus on putting all your combos to finish the enemy ADC and Mage first. From there, creating a premise to win the fight and the game.
