Ronan is a ranged, physical damage Carry who rewards precise, highly-skilled play with devastating potency. Ronan excels in the Gladiator role above all others, his combined mobility and empowered Basics making for easy last hitting and efficient trading. Ronan is truly powerful at all points of the game, excelling at avoiding enemies in small skirmishes while dishing out tremendous damage in large teamfights – use his strength aggressively and early, a well-played Ronan in a 2v2 or 3v3 can often be the winning factor in a fight. Ronan’s Ultimate synergizes extremely well with his playstyle, always be looking for the best opportunity to get off the most uninterrupted Basics before activating it. Once active, simply focus on what Ronan does best: staying just out of the opponents reach while maintaining as much damage uptime as possible. Ronan’s ability to self-peel and avoid enemy Shapers can open up a seriously heavy damage team composition – consider foregoing a Bruiser or CC-heavy Support when building a team around Ronan, often better damage can prove more useful given Ronan’s innate slipperiness.

"Gentlekin, you got ’til highsun to clear out of these woods."
Among ottrekin, there's a legend about one of their own, a lone wanderer who metes out his harsh brand of Justice with a pair of flintlock pistols. If you can find him, and you're willing to let him do it as he sees fit, he'll balance the books.
Talking about justice, gentlekin?
You know the camp at Ten Trees? My brother Feylan and I worked there, jobbing on barges to and from Maridia. Didn’t bother no one. Stayed out from underfoot.
Some longshanks from Ranciello came around. Merchants’ kids, smarting for trouble. Sport for them, yeah?
One of them shoved into Feylan, said he’d tried to pick his pocket. “You know what ottrekin are like.”
I stood up and told it was false. Said they weren’t the sort we wanted to see in Ten Trees. Told ‘em to let my brother go, and get themselves to the edge of camp.
Made it so I couldn’t see no more.
Then they made me listen.
Feylan screamed and begged until his voice gave out. For mercy, at first. Then for death. Until he choked on the blood. Until the breathing stopped.
Nobody did nothing. Just stared into their drinks. Like you lot are doing.
Justice. A fine principle. I put a mess of stock in it, as it happens. But it don’t stand up in reality. Mortals ain’t never got the knack of it. And hell, our sort? What manner of justice do ottrekin ever get?
You mark me, gentlekin. There’s a powerful lot of bad folk in this world. You ain’t gonna stop them pissing on you by asking nice, appealing to some better nature they ain’t got. You need a bad sort of your own. One who ain’t gonna flinch from maiming and killing in turn.
When you need a bad man, give a holler. Tell me I can handle it how I see fit. Put it in writing. Then shut your muzzle and stand back. I’ll pay the blood for your peace.
And one day you will need me. Don’t think you won’t.
