Lastly, Hunter’s Attack Speed and Movement Speed bonuses make it a great choice for mobility and attacking speed. In summary, the combination of these arcana can greatly enhance Sea Farer’s tankiness, self-sufficiency, and damage output, especially in team fights and during the laning phase where he needs to sustain himself in order to farm more efficiently.

Battle Spells

The best spell for Sea Farer as a fighter tank with minimum mobility would be Flash as this gives him the mobility he needs to catch up to marksmen that are good at kiting and running away from ganks when needed.

Best Builds for Sea Farer in Honor of Kings

Although this build order is not set in stone, as one can build around the enemy team compositions. This is an overview of what to build Sea Farer for at his best possible build order without considering the enemy team composition and/or laning phase match-up. In this guide, we will talk about the best builds for Sea Farer in Honor of Kings.

  • Boots of Resistance: The boots commonly referred to as magic resist boots are frequently used by fighters and tanks with difficulty approaching enemies without being repeatedly crowd controlled. These boots provide players with a total of 110 additional magical damage, a swift passive that gives 60 movement speed, and a tough passive that provides 35% more resistance. This is particularly essential for Sea Farer, who must get close to enemies to deal damage.
  • Nightmare: The Nightmare is a powerful weapon in Sea Farers’ arsenal. With an additional 85 Physical attack, it can deal significant damage in battle. Additionally, it boasts a 15% cooldown reduction, allowing for more frequent use of his abilities where he relies on them. The weapon also provides a substantial boost to maximum health, increasing a hero’s survivability in combat. The Nightmare’s unique passives further enhance its effectiveness. The Cut passive increases armor penetration based on the hero’s level, while the Disable passive gives basic attacks a 30% chance of reducing an enemy’s movement speed by 20% for two seconds. This passive has a cooldown of eight seconds, making it a useful tool for controlling the battlefield.
  • The Siege Breaker: This is a powerful item that can deal massive damage to enemies in battle. With a staggering 180 Physical attack, it is capable of delivering devastating blows to any foe. However, the weapon’s true strength lies in its unique passive ability, known as Siege Breaker. This passive allows the wielder to deal an additional 30% damage to enemies whose health is below 50%. This makes the Siege Breaker particularly effective against heavily-armored enemies or those with high health pools and efficient in executing enemies. With this item, Sea Farer can become a formidable force on the battlefield, capable of breaking through and bursting enemies that he can lay his hands on.

  • Master Sword: This versatile item provides a range of benefits to its wielder. With an additional 80 Physical attack, it can deal significant damage in combat. Moreover, the weapon’s 20% Critical Hit Chance increases the likelihood of scoring a critical hit, further amplifying Sea Farer’s damage output. The Master Sword also grants 500 Maximum Mana and 500 Maximum Health, increasing a hero’s durability and sustain. However, the Master Sword’s unique passive ability, Strong Attack, is what Sea Farer really needs. After using an ability, the passive increases the wielder’s Movement Speed by 12% for two seconds, and the next Basic Attack deals an additional 0.8*Physical Attack Physical Damage. This passive has a cooldown of three seconds, making it a potent tool for both engaging in combat and escaping danger.
  • Star Breaker is an exceptional item that can significantly enhance the combat abilities of Sea Farer. With an additional 80 Physical Attack, it can deal significant damage to enemies in battle. Additionally, the item provides a 10% cooldown reduction, allowing for more frequent use of abilities. However, the Star Breaker’s true strength lies in its unique passive ability, Armor Break. This passive grants Sea Farer an additional 40% Physical Penetration, making him much more effective at penetrating enemy defenses. With this item, Sea Farer can deal devastating damage to even heavily-armored foes, turning the tide of battle in his favor. All in all, the Star Breaker is an essential item for any warrior looking to increase their combat effectiveness and dominate the battlefield.
  • Ominous Premonition is a powerful item that can greatly enhance the survivability of Sea Farer. With an additional 270 Physical Defenses, it can significantly reduce the damage taken from physical attacks. Moreover, the item provides 1200 Maximum Health, making Sea Farer much more durable in combat. However, the true strength of the Ominous Premonition lies in its unique passive ability, Cold Iron. Whenever Sea Farer is attacked, the passive reduces the attacker’s Attack Speed by 30% and Movement Speed by 15% for three seconds. This makes it much harder for enemies to land follow-up attacks, giving Sea Farer the upper hand in combat. With this item equipped, Sea Farer can easily withstand even the most relentless assaults and emerge victorious. Overall, the Ominous Premonition is an excellent item for any fighter looking to increase their survivability and control the battlefield.

Honor of Kings Sea Farer Gameplay Tips

Sea Farer is a very fun and interesting character or hero to be used in Honor of Kings, this is due to him having a huge tankiness or sustainability in his kit and stats, but still retaining his huge damage capabilities that are fitting for fighters, this can be seen with his damage output from mid-game to the late game. However, a player must have a good understanding of the map to get the most out of any hero.

Even though he is a huge fighter with damage potential he is more adept at initiating team fights with his kit and being able to deal substantial damage to enemy tanks and fighters with his passive in item build. In this guide, we will be enumerating and explaining how to play Sea Farer in Honor of Kings through the early game, mid-game, and late game.

Early Game

For the early the first skill to be learned to gain an edge in the laning phase would be the first skill where Sea Farer dashes and deals damage to enemies hit. This gives huge poke and trade potential in the laning phase, especially against enemy tanks. This is a tool to get your enemy low enough so that you would be able to farm better while keeping the enemy laner in check.

In this phase of the game, Sea Farer does not have the duel capability that he will have once getting all his abilities. It would be better for the players to use their abilities available as trading and poking tools and try to avoid duels in the earlier stages unless the player can get them low enough to the point that you could execute them with just a combo of your first and second skill.

Mid Game

The mid-game is the phase of the game when Sea Farer begins to deal actual damage and gains his dueling potential, especially against the enemy fighter or tank where he can out-damage and out-sustain. This is part of the game where you would be able to use your ultimate skill to engage in team fights and be alright with your tankiness and backup of your teammates.

In this phase, Sea Farer will have enough damage to effectively duel enemies that are also in the lane. The best path to take in this phase would be to try and push your lane first as the enemy laner would probably be outmatched at this stage of the game if the early game goes perfectly, This gives additional pressure in the lane forcing other players to try and gank you so your other team will gain a breathing room. If playing behind it would be better to roam and try to look for picks with your team.

Late Game

In the late game, Sea Farer still does a lot of damage, especially for someone as tanky as him. However, his viability in defeating fighters, especially those with lifesteal and heals dwindles a bit as getting burst and being able to heal it back up is very annoying for the playstyle of Sea Farer as he heavily relies on the burst of his abilities, and passive which comes up every after a few seconds of using it.

In this phase of the game, Sea Farer players should just focus on being the initiator of the team in skirmishes and teamfights especially finding anybody off guard with his crowd control ultimate where he slams the enemy with his ship and stunning them allowing his team to back up and engage against the standing opponent.

Sea Farer is a strong damage dealer with huge sustain and tankiness to boot. With this, his weakness is that after dealing a certain amount of damage, he will have a bit of time before he can dish out damage again due to his skills being in cooldown.

With this, once he is able to catch a squishy enemy off guard or a tanky enemy without enough damage in a one-on-one it is sure for him to win as this greatly benefits from his playstyle in this type of fight. However, if he is to be up to highly mobile heroes and heroes that can take his first barrage and counter damage him will be his counter as they can outplay him and defeat him once he used up his first barrage of skills.

Final Thoughts

He is classified as a fighter tank hero, which means that he can be utilized by most players as he is easy to learn and begin playing with.
