Lastly is the Calamity that gives a critical rate to the character, which is always important as dealing a crit, which may be the deciding factor if one would be able to kill the enemy, or to duel in the jungle.

Battle Spells

Being a very traditional marksman, Lady Sun is always in need of more safety. The safest thing for marksmen to have would be their kiting skills and options and even escape options. This is why her first skill is very important, or may even be Lady Sun’s most important skill in the game.

Honor of Kings Lady Sun Gameplay Tips

Lady Sun may be one of the easiest marksmen to use that is currently available in the game as her abilities are straightforward to learn how to use and control. However, she is a very squishy hero that would need lots of protection to pop off, especially when the player using her is not an expert when it comes to kiting and being self-sufficient in terms of protecting herself.

Additionally, Lady Sun requires a lot of farming. In the early and mid-game, one should try to avoid frequent conflicts and focus on farming and holding your position. Once you’re fully equipped, organize the team and you can end the enemy and the game. Our Honor of Kings Lady Sun guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late games of the game. However, a player must have a good understanding of the map to get the most out of any hero.

Early Game

At level 1, the skill that should be taken first would be the first skill of Lady Sun. This is due to it having not just the kiting and dash capabilities to ward off early ganks, but also, its ability to enhance the auto attacks of Lady Sun which is pretty useful against trades and dealing damage to enemies in the earlier stages of the game.

In this phase of the game, the players must do their best to avoid engagements that are head-on against enemy laners and most especially against junglers of the enemy team. This is because Lady Sun is extremely weak in the early game especially, when not having any core items that she needs to be built yet.

Mid Game

The mid-game is where Lady Sun starts to be more useful in team fights, although it still depends on whether or not the player was able to farm efficiently in the earlier stage of the game. It would be important to be significantly ahead in the build order against your enemy to be able to win in the mid-game with Lady Sun, as her damage unlike other marksmen like Solarus and Private Ear is purely based on her itemization and builds.

Although players can win team fights with her at this stage of the game, it would still be wise to avoid team fights, if possible, and only participate in teamfights that would be important in winning secondary objectives such as buffs, towers, and the such.

It is also important to never forget that one would need to farm more until you reach the final item to be build as this will make you very unstoppable against enemies, especially when you are being protected by your supports and tanks while you are hitting the enemies for free.

Late Game

In the late game is where Lady Sun really really shines the most. She is basically the most late game type of character that is currently available in the game. Once she is able to build all her items she suddenly becomes an unstoppable damage dealer that can quickly take care of enemies may it be the tanky front line of the other team, the assassins that are trying to take out lady sun herself or even the enemy carries that are trying to deal damage to the team fight that is happening.

This is the stage of the game where, as long as you do not die in the team fights and your team is protecting you at every team fight, you will be sure to win. This is a testament to how no one can out scale a Lady Sun in the game,  especially when paired with protective tank supports that can peel out assassins that try to execute lady sun before destroying the entire enemy team.

Lady Sun is a traditional marksman that can deal tons and tons of damage in exchange for her defenses being really low, as when caught by any high-burst potential heroes she can get one shot and be destroyed in less than a second. However, her strength is dealing with more straightforward tanky enemies that can be kited easier such as Tanks and Fighters.

Final Thoughts

Lady Sun is a very easy hero to learn the mechanics of the skill and the way how her kit works and interacts against enemies, she can be considered one of the most normal and traditional marksmen that are currently available in the game. Learning how to play Lady Sun is basically learning on how to play the role of a marksman in the farm lane.

Using Lady Sun would be highly dependent on the patience and playstyle of the player. The better playstyle of players that would like to use her would be a very patient and calm player that knows when and when not to attack the enemies, when they would need to fall back into which locations in the team fight, all the while being targetted by assassins that have the potential to easily kill lady sun in a blink of an eye and then go back to their teammates as if they did nothing.

An excellent pick for rank games, Lady Sun is definitely a good pick for the current meta. These tips will surely help you to guide easy wins with Lady Sun in Honor of Kings. You can also refer to our latest tier list to know more about the revamped meta heroes in this current season.
