Keep your endurance at 0, lmao. and this is a meta guide? Your opener wastes tons of powerful survival skills and against a good opposing team you WILL be focused to death or forced to leave until your CDs are ready again.

You also lose portal for Mirror Images, a bad decision.

Even if spamming clones through dodging was a good idea, your only running one energy sigil, which is massively less survivability and clone production.
