This guide is meant for the 5V5 game mode.
High poke damage and barrier from B
Safe laning phase due to the B's barrier and negative status effect immunity from C
Mobility (A, C 2 charges)
Blackfeather has 3 dashes with relatively short cooldown
Negative Status Effect Immunity (C, 2 charges)
Area Of Effect Damage (A and C)
Sticky (A and C)
Falls off late game
Slow wave clear
Good Junglers can abuse this and push with their Bot Laner, making you lose turret very early and also limiting your ability to rotate.
Top Blackfeather needs a highly skilled player who can consistently land his B, clear waves, and survive until he reaches his B overdrive at 8 to be able to out trade carries
CP - Spellfire, Halcyon Chargers, Shatterglass, Broken Myth, Aftershock, Aegis/Slumbering Husk
Skills: 1 B, 2 A, 3 B, 4 B, 5 A, 6 C, 7 B, 8 B, 9 C, 10 A, 11 A, 12 C
Start with Book Of Eulogies and Crystal Bit, or Light Armor in place of the Crystal against Caine and Kestrel.
You can replace Aftershock with Eve of Harvest if you will mainly poke and want some extra sustain, or another Shatterglass (which will do more damage if you are just going to poke, rather than using your normal attacks/A/C to trigger Aftershock's passive)
Blackfeather is countered by
Caine Bot Lane, lane phase
When against Caine your objective is to survive until level 8 because he has way more poke damage and longer range than you, so just stay behind minions and do not try to trade much since you will always lose before level 8.
Kestrel Bot Lane, lane phase
When against Kestrel your objective is to survive until level 8 because she has way more poke damage and longer range than you, so just stay behind minions and do not try to trade much since you will always lose before level 8.
She can stop your whole engage with A by using her B. You can avoid this by always engaging with your C against Lyra. C goes over the wall due to the status effect immunity.
She can either avoid your whole combo with her shadow B or root you point blank when you use your A which will mean instant death for you.
Even with double CC immunity, she can kill bf with ease.
Blackfeather is a counter to
All heroes except the ones in the counters list
Blackfeather is strong against
All compositions cause he is very flexible
