Introduction

Emma Frost, the Ice Queen. Gorgeous looking and seductive, so there is no doubt where she gets her mind controlling powers from. In Marvel Super War Emma Frost should be played as a jungler as she is a burst assassin with somewhat good mobility and some protection in the diamond form. Main difference when you compare her to other heroes is that the ultimate unlocked at level 1. She has two forms, psychic and diamond. In the psychic form her basic attacks are ranged as well as her skills. In the diamond form she gets close and personal, getting a melee range for both regular attacks and abilities.

She was a villain that got converted to a hero and a regular member of the X-Men. In the movies she was portrayed by Tahyna MacManus.

PROS

  • Excellent right from the start – Emma Frost can start to gank as soon as level 2, as she will have every skill unlocked and enough damage to quickly finish off every squishy enemy

  • Great burst skills

  • Energy assassin – since Emma’s skills are energy – based she can even attack the tanks early on, as most players build their defences around the physical damage

CONS

  • Squishy, as most junglers are. She has some form of sustain through her passive, but this is not nearly enough in the fights that last longer

  • Not that powerful late in the game

Emma Frost early game (lvl 8)

Your first skill of choice should be Telepathic Pulse. Use it to clear the jungle until you get to level two. Clear one side of the jungle, and you can start ganking the enemies. At this point Emma has enough burst to kill most heroes. Just make sure to take the Mystic Rune as your first item. Yes, it’s that important, as that small boost can be of huge assistance at the start. Like we have mentioned above, Emma has her ultimate unlocked at the beginning. It allows her to switch forms and as you do this your skill set changes, and most importantly, your skill cooldowns resets. You can try to gank any lane, but always try to focus on the enemies that got deeper into the lane, as they are an easy prey, and probably won’t be able to escape you. You need to approach your target in the psychic form. Use the following combo: Psionic Shield will pull the enemy towards you for 1 second, and you should use the Telepathic Pulse followed by the basic hit. Now it’s time to finish off and go for the kill. Use your ulti to switch to diamond form and rush towards the enemy using your basic attack, as it will have an extended range. Now use your second skill – Diamond Zone to slow down the enemy, gain some shield and 40% attack speed. At this point your passive should trigger and you will gain some more shield, as well as stunning the enemy for 1 second (as you will be in diamond form). Another basic attack, followed by Diamond Edge and your enemy should be either dead or close to it. They will try to flee, so use Blink to follow them. You need those early kills, they will trigger a snowball effect that will help you get the experience and gold advantage early on and it will lead to even more kills. Emma Frost is the queen of early and mid-game, make sure you hold on to this, as the late game will be a lot harder or outright impossible if you don’t play the early game right. Oh, and make sure to get into the routine of using the basic attack after each skill, as the Virus Cannon will boost every attack within 1.5 seconds.

Emma Frost mid-late game

I didn’t mention an important mechanics in the early game, but better late than never. It may seem that you are losing a fight sometimes, but if you are up against one enemy that probably won’t be the case, just don’t be indecisive and keep attacking until you are overwhelmed and certain you’ll lose. She gains a lot of shields in the diamond form, and has some low resistance that will help her survive for a bit longer so don’t panic.

Hopefully, the early game went the way you wanted, so now what? Use the difference you’ve created to pry upon the unsuspecting foes, and increase the difference even further. Be careful in the late game especially when you are trying to gank upon the enemy marksman, as he can clear you out before you get the chance to come closer and bash him. If you do get in you will bash his liver with stuns and he won’t be able to retaliate, but be extra careful when you try to approach them and try to do it from the bush or the flank as they are focusing on someone else. Antimatter Cannon will increase sustain and survivability by a lot, and you will be able to hold in case the fights get longer.

The most interesting part of every round are team fights, and Emma is not too shabby in case you know what you are doing. Don’t even try to attack the enemies head on, or linger longer in the middle of the fray as you will literally die from side effects. Use both of your forms to poke and retreat, but try to poke the backline whenever you can. Don’t try to be a hero in the late game, as you are pretty soft, and all of the enemies are geared up, so there are no easy opponents.
