    I mean the only other flank that has an escape button like Zhin is Evie. But okay, if not Evie, then maybe Androxus. He has insane close range burst (all three talents are okay; even though many people consider Defiant Fist to be bad right now, the high burst is still nice in 1v1 situations), you will win every 1v1 if you get the first shot in on close range, you can delete many squishies in a second or so, but Andro is very ineffective at long range, so you really are committed to fighting on close range, diving people, which can be pretty risky. But Andro is still pretty fun imho if there aren't Cassie's and Lian's on the enemy team. Honestly, I'd recommend you to go Defiant Fist, just to have better chances in 1v1 situations when you are flanking, plus I found that Defiant Fist actually works pretty fine with a good loadout: you can go for Watchful 5 or Abyssal Touch 5 to get your dashes back. My loadout is:
    Abyssal Touch 5
    Watchful 3
    Through The Warp 4
    Marksman 1
    Ellusive 2
    With this combination of Abyssal Touch and Watchful you can get your dashes back pretty consistently.
    Godslayer is also good, but it depends on how you wanna play Andro. If you wanna play more safe then I'd say Cylinder or Godslayer, if you wanna play aggressively and dive people then I'd say Defiant Fist

    Ah yes, I never thought of using Defiant Fist on Androxus before. Tried your build and I must say I'm pretty amazed by it. I usually go with either Cursed Cylinder or Godslayer but it seems the Defiant Fist playstyle fits me so much better. Thanks for the tip dude!

    However, I must say that I gotta improve on that aim though, he is much much more aim heavy than Zhin is and it will definitely take some time getting used to.
    YES I MAIN LIAN AND SHE'S NOT OP OK

    BUFF PRECISION PLEASE

    I have to agree with trying Talus. His teleport ability is a beautiful "eject button" so to speak. and you can also spec it to heal you some and reset cooldowns.

    You are looking at it backwards. Zhin was only peeventing you from learning how to flank as you cannot learn good position is you have a safty net.

    If your goal. is truly to learn how to be a flanker you should play Androxus. Yes you will die allot but that ia how you figure out good possitioning.

    They all require this and the escape is not a oh crap i. meassed up button its a im going to run into three people kill one and get out alive. To do this you need good position, timing, and game sence

    i second this but if you want a fun flank to pub-stomp with, try a debilitate skye build, not hard at all, she's basically a close range vivian, but can go invisible

    The best flank to play for noobs is Viktor but you must be constantly sprinting into walls.
    Schools out.

    Fix maeves bugs

    I seem to have bad luck when it comes to getting put with good teams. None the less i get best flank 90% of the time. I would like to get put with better players so if you would like to play with me ps4. My ign is: Maeveinator


    YOU ROCK!.... CANCEL THAT!

    Lex build that is fun.

    Heroism
    5 on slide distance
    4 on speed after slide
    4 on shots reset slide

    You have a crap ton of mobility.
    You can slide in kill and slide away.
    Allows you to get close to people while taking almost no damage.

    5 shots resets your slide but really it takes 0.6 seconds at least to shoot 4 rounds. You can get multipule slides in a 1v1... You can also slide and reload while sliding.

    Your auto aim counts as reset shots so you can rigjt click to get an emergency slide away slide
