    To do the 2200 dmg combo don't use Mana Rift, use Pyromania lengendary and Mystic Fire 5 and Pilgrimage in your loadout. I really don't like the Mana Rift legendary, makes you very stationary and Imani already has movement problems.
    You have to allways look to your mana bar, once it's full, shoot the first fire ball (charge for 1.6 seconds) and then hit LMB (don't hold) again very quickly and the second shoot will go instantly. It's like you charge for 1.6 seconds but instead of fire 1 shoot you will fire 2. Then use frostfire glide to increase your mana again and repeat. (also charge your mana in the spawn room with frostfire glide).
    I'm at work right now but when I get home I post my loadout. It's in the test phase and yesterday i changed it a bit but you can have an idea.

    I actually really enjoy Imani. I prefer Splitting Ice myself, and I especially love targeting deployables to destroy them while also "bouncing" my shots off to hit nearby enemies at the same time. I currently run a loadout that's heavily focused on improving her survivability and making Frostfire Glide a more effective escape, which also helps it to double as a nice off-flanking tool.

    I'd go so far as to say that she's the first damage champion I've really felt comfortable with from almost the moment I started playing her. It just "clicked" very quickly. I think that's how it happens, though, sometimes: you get champs who just naturally fit you somehow.

    @Ripper: please, explain this to me: which is the difference in holding LMB or just pressing it, while using fire? I’ve tried several time, but I can’t understand if there’s a different dmg output or whatever.

    @Spacey: I was using survivability loadout too, but my problem is that I can’t deal enough dmg. It is like my Dredge: 50k dmg, but with 30 kills (I am “surgical” with Harpoon, as said, I don’t spam). With Imani I have 50k dmg in a 20 min game, but with 6 kills, so there’s something wrong :-/
    For me, nothing it’s “natural”, I’m a theorist, I NEED to get the logic behind something, before being able to use it, no matter how natural. That’s why there are so many threads like this about “please, explain to me the theory of champion X” ^^’

    I was using Imani with Mana Rift, but I am still unable to find out what does it do... ^^'

    So, 2200 dmg combo... I should try that. I am actually creating a new loadout for her, let's see what I can do.

    PS: "Pow Pow Dead Squishy" is definitely a great name!


    EDIT
    No, guys, I've tried. I've even copied the loadout of Brickvon, but I am 100% unable to get the free 2nd attack. So, can you please write to me a step by step "for dummies" manual, here?
    You know pyre balls, you need to charge them, the instant pyre ball needs no charge, so while you hold the fire button to charge the pyre ball, isntead it just throws out an instant pyre ball(if your mana is full), which may seems to be like it bugged out and threw a normal pyre ball, but it is a fully charged pyre ball which required no charging, due to the mana.
    The way you can keep track of it is, you see your mana bar right, its blue, when it turns white, that's when it throws out an instant one, so it is white, get ready to throw the instant pyre ball instead of looking to charge it.

    The mana rift basically works, you stand at an area for 2 seconds, it spawns a beacon, now you can move around quite far, and your mana will fill up, if you have played an mmo or sort of that(moba), then while you are standing on your home, or on a safe point, your health/mana recharges, same thing.

    Her fire stance is like shalin's arrow, you hold it for longer, you do more damage.

    fire stance is actually pretty tough to use. you might occasionally two shot someone, but you are very vulnerable when you dont have mana. good flanks will wreak you if they get close too

    frost stance with splitting ice is pretty straight forward. try to stay in the back lines and hit the group with a long range frost bomb, then rain frost bolts on them. positioning is key to make this work

    I was watching the video and there was some guy talking not in English and i was wondering why isn't geste talking in English and how is this 8 year old voice sounds like an adult man. Turns out it was the goddamn mixer stream.

    Anyways that's the quality my internet can handle so thumbs up, but then again my net is potato, so you potato.
