      Few important tips , that did not mentioned author.

      • 1.When you cast E on Blackhands - using Q or W (forbidden stab, or the last spell) on the last 0.2-0.3 seconds of E's cast time , will not interrupt your two hit combo , and while your enemy is in air - you will make bonus Third hit ( Depending on what spell you was spamming ) . BTW you can combine it with Auto attack too. For example - If you wear Demon Cape , use E , on last seconds of animation spam Spacebar (for auto attack) , you will Hit enemy in air and Lava will appear on the spot where your target will land after punch instantly, after it - lockdown enemy with shadow edge to continue deadly combo.
      • 2.Second tip is about auto attacks. Hit and run tactic. Always try to stay closer to your enemy ( literally your aim is to enter enemy's Hitbox ) , which will allow you to make few bonus hits , if your enemy decide to run away or to make distance. Also when you are fighting your target - always wait until your Auto attack animation will start , and only after it use your Q. Doing actions in this order will cancel Auto attack animation but will deal Dmg anyway. So your total DPS will be much and much higher.
      • 3. And the last very important tip about Shadow Edge. When you want to land shadow edge - your aim is to make a minor distance ( around 2-3 meters ) between you and your enemy. Do not ever stay IN ,or face to face enemy's Hit Box. If you will not make this distance - probably your shadow edge will fly through the enemy. So always keep it in mind.
      There are more tactics , variations , combinations etc. how and where to use Black Hands. But it will take lots of time to tell you everything about it. This info above is just basics - that everyone should know. Hope it was useful.
