I'm level 100+ Corvus main and this is my Corvus guide+tips. I mean there is no real Corvus guide in PaladinsGuru so I'll try my best to fix that. I'll try my best to update this guide in the future.

Don't be a fool and don't start learning to play stun corv in siege. If you can't land stuns there is nothing to do there. Later, however, by all means.

It's easier to land stuns after starting to fire at an enemy instead of using projection right away. You will learn to insta-stun after practice.

Corv is very good in 1v1s with most champs, but he struggles with champions that can silence, cripple, or that have massive hp.

Corv has 2 stun reset cards. Unyielding discipline is the hardest of two because if you miss you're a sitting duck. This card triggers for each enemy hit so if you hit 2 enemies with stun It will be 5s reset (if max level) plus with max Chronos, It would be 7,4s off stun making stun cooldown 0.6s. This is the best reset card, however, Corvus heals for a lot so using just this card sacrifices some heals for team.

The priority targets card, however, is super easy to use and is very forgiving. Yes, you lose the ability to fully reset the cooldown of stun, but in situations where teleport is used for escaping the reset will still be granted after healing an ally no need to stun an enemy. This card is best used in heal stun loadouts.

Corv can stun through shields and deployable making him a counter for champs like Vivian, Fernando, Khan, Term, and many flanks have a hard time against a good stun corv. Also, stun is useful for canceling movement abilities like Raum's juggernaut.

Sometimes hitting directly with a stun is not the best option. For those who are behind cover throwing stun next to them and position yourself so the teleport would deal dmg.

Don't forget to heal, but healing isn't your priority. It's fine to attack and leave the team behind, camping isn't an option. Corv is like a flank anyway. It's useless to just sit back and not look for kills, however it's bad if u are only on the move because healing allies is so important. I spend half of my game healing and other half killing every1 who decides to push me (no really, I'm not that great, but it is ez to play when neal allies).

There is an indicator when throwing projection. It shows where is it safe to teleport or will you fall to your death (unless you use ult to save yourself, sometimes teleporting like this is useful, the indicator turns red btw).

As a controller player, I say that play with high sensitivity.

This loadout is good for low elo players because in higher elo It will be harder to find openings, however when u get better with landing stuns this is much better to use than other loadouts even in high elo.

Dark gifts talent was usually not worth going, however, after buff, it's a valid playstyle, but I don't think It is as fun as other playstyles.

Small tips

Mark flanks, or whoever is carrying.

Use teleport a lot. Recomend to teleport to highground or near teamates,

Remember u can still deal dmg.

When playing 2mark It's most of the time the best option to heal the allies who are marked because of reseted cooldown/more healing to the ally u want/and more self heal, however, healing some1 who doesn't have a mark allows to heal 3 allies (I think it's more heals in general when healing like this when using Shadow Tribinal card for sure but u won't always get the full value), marked allies might be far away so this is the only way of healing them.

Ultimate usage

Notes

There are many ways to use Corvus ult. I will try to tell all of them even the stupid ones by ranking them.

1 Teleporting behing an enemy and insta-ulting. This works much better with stun corv but it's still great in casuals with heal corv.

2 Just using it for dmg/slow by ulting a grouped enemies. Ulting point in perfect scenario. Best way to ult for heal corv.

3 As a safety net when a flank rushes u.

4 Duration of ult is long and gives 60%, Waiting in ult sometimes be the best call.

5 For movement to get on highground, if ult isnt used it resets to 60%. (u have low cooldown teleport ability btw so use this while ulting a point or smth)

6 As an emote when the game ends.

When playing stun
Notes

Stun enemies in ult to almost always gurantee a kill.
