How to play Baldum
Like other support heroes, in the early game, you should move quickly to the bushes in the middle of the river to protect your team’s jungle in case the enemy hero moves to rob the jungle. If you are sure, you can move to the enemy buff to disturb the enemy jungler.
After that, you should move quickly back to your Dragon lane to help the ADC push the lane as well as poke the opponent.
Mid and late game
In the middle of the game, when there are 2 or more items, Baldum will become more rigid in the fighting phase.
After you and your ADC successfully take the first tower of Dragon lane, you should move to other lanes to help capture the opponent. When you move away from your ADC, you should still observe the ADC on the mini-map, in case he gets caught when you leave.
Baldum is a tough defensive hero, possessing in himself the 1st and last moves that can initiate unexpected combat. For example, if you only need one phase to use Skill 1 or Ultimate exactly, you can start a fight. If the enemy is far away, you can take a surprise strike with one phase using Flicker and Skill 1.
