Strengths and Weaknesses

MOVESET 1: Drill Kick – Drill Peck + Jump Kick
Drill Kick Strengths:
+ High movement speed once Run Away’s sprint gauge is filled, allowing for excellent roaming, positioning, and outplay potential.
+ Full sprint meter auto attacks hit hard and their free aiming dash nature gives it applications for mobility use
+ Split scoring mechanic allows Dodrio to score (and stack) more easily and set up bigger overscores for its teammates.
+ Very high burst damage with % max HP ticks for tanks coupled with powerful displacement and stunning from Drill Peck enables huge teamfight impact.
+ Jump Kick and Triple Trample enables powerful CC chain potential that can lock down opponents, facilitate escapes, and win fights.
+ Big 5 spike. Drill Peck is excellent at punishing overzealous laners and kidnapping bees/birds.

Drill Kick Weaknesses:
– Squishy.
– The aspect on maintaining a full sprint meter to be useful is especially prevalent here and Dodrio is especially vulnerable to all CC. Jump Kick cannot fully shrug off slows as well as being vulnerable to CC while in use.
– Drill Peck is a high risk, high reward move. Missing can be disastrous without any contingency plan.
– Split scoring mechanic can sometimes backfire because of how it also makes Dodrio unable to overscore well.

MOVESET 2: Trigility – Tri Attack + Agility
+ High movement speed once Run Away’s sprint gauge is filled. The excellent roaming and invade potential this enables is especially boosted by this set.
+ Split scoring mechanic allows Dodrio to score (and stack) more easily and set up bigger overscores for its teammates.
+ Full sprint meter auto attacks hit hard and their free aiming dash nature gives it applications for mobility use. Tri Attack further enhances the power of these.
+ Tri Attack with a full sprint meter is an extremely safe projectile attack that lets Dodrio safely poke at enemies and farms with non ignorable damage until it’s safe to go in for the kill.
+ Agility is like a mini Full Heal, X Speed, and extra sprint meter generation all in one move that lets Dodrio escape a lot of things while giving an extra failsafe against CC.
+ Tri Attack’s combination of having 2 reserves, healing on the enhanced auto, and the unboosted version still being helpful in scraps enables incredible earlygame fighting after the level 5 spike.

Trigility Weaknesses:
– Squishy.
– While more forgiving than the other set, Dodrio still has to be very wary of different CC sources to maintain its meter and be forced to Agility.
– Relatively low damage impact and high TTKs after the earlygame, especially if it falls behind in levels. This set often needs to do longer combos to 100-0 people.
– Split scoring mechanic can sometimes backfire because of how it also makes Dodrio unable to overscore well.
