Kunkka is a melee character. His primary attribute is strength. The hero is mainly taken as a midlaner or support. Most effective in the early and mid game.
Kunkka is a mobile character who can deal huge damage with Tidebringer and also help in team fights by catching enemies with X Mark the Spot or giving an ally the opportunity to teleport back to the base to restore health. Ghostship can be both a strong initiation and a good defensive spell that can prolong his allies’ lives. With Torrent, Kunkka can catch enemies from a distance. After buying Aghanim's Scepter, the hero gets the Torrent Storm ability, which often makes opponents lose their positions in fights. Aghanim's Shard grants Kunkka the Tidal Wave ability, which will be useful for both initiation and his team’s retreat.
As The Admiral of the mighty Claddish Navy, Kunkka was charged with protecting the isles of his homeland. The waves rose up in towering spouts around his ships, and Maelrawn the Tentacular appeared amid the fray. Did Kunkka survive that storm, or does only his spirit enter the battlefield?
