General Strategy for Vurk
- Vurk’s ultimate will only strafe as far as enemies are spread, making his ultimate exceptional when enemies are few in number and/or tightly clustered together, but very underwhelming if enemies are sufficiently spread out.
- Try to position Vurk against the weaker frontliner to guarantee the explosion damage from his 3rd skill (Poison Vial), as it only explodes if it does 15% of the target’s HP in damage.
