Play Style and Tips
This Noobnaut is basically a support character until you can stand on your own two feet. Stay near your teammates in the early game, say between spending sprees 1 and 3. Try and last-hit enemies to get the Monkey Hand bonus. Snipe escaping enemies, but stay back! You aren't that good in a straight-up fight. keep near your teamates and run if you are targeted! After fully upgrading Snipe, stay near (and behind!) a turret. You can use Snipe's penetration to shoot attacking enemies with droids in front of them. (Shoot the droids for good measure, too.) You can be brave and come out, but don't blame the guide if you die. The reason Timerift is acquired late is because its main use is to let you escape once a turret breaks. It is not an offensive technique, so use Snipe! You should also use your protoblaster on enemies out in the field, but again, use Snipe whenever possible.
Pro tips: Only use the Unknown Alien Hand if you are confident in your killing abilities.Monkey Hand generates more Solar.
Droids are nice, but this is mainly an escape tactic and such droids are mostly unnecessary.
This build works best with strong allies. Do not use Raelynn with a Voltar and a Yuri! Use human teammates. you can chat to convey plans.
Do not use the pro loadout if you are a noob! The noob loadout introduces players to what Raelynn can do, the pro one enhances her! Don't be ashamed to be a noob. That situation is temporary. Thank you for reading, and once again, if you want another Noobnauts guide, just ask for the character and I will make it! Now go be awesome and own the people who have not read this!
