How to play Elsu
At the beginning of the game, you have many choices for yourself.
You can move quickly across the river and stand in the bushes to be invisible. You should watch carefully and choose the exact time to shoot Skill 1 to steal enemy charms.
Or you can also move to the mid lane, find bushes near the terrain to hide, aim and shoot Skill 1 at the enemy mid laner to poke. Then, move quickly back to your Dragon lane to clear the wave of creeps that are pushing in.
Another option with the safe playing brethren is to grant him the first Falcon skill and place in the grasslands of the river to gain more vision for him.
Mid and late game
At this stage, use Skill 1 of Elsu to clear the wave faster. Remember to stand in line with the wave to hit the most creeps.
You can also use your shots to poke the enemy from a distance. Switch ganks to find opportunities for yourself as well as pressure the opponent.
Towards the late game, you should consider when aiming for Skill 2, flexibly changing to normal shooting to cause damage. Limit aiming when close combat or chaotic combat.
