This is for anyone who can't figure out how to get in there and do the damage with Rylai. It seems simple, with her Freezing Field ult, but this ult channels, presenting some difficulties. This is how to get off the whole spell, get the kills, and make it home easy. This strategy is geared towrds massive damage and quick hero kills. Play like a cowgirl (boy) - Wait for it... then run in laughing and blow all em away.
Rylai Crestfall

Rylai Crestfall - Crystal Maiden


Range: | Move Speed: 280
Primary: INT
Str: 16 + 1.7 | Agi: 16 + 1.6 | Int: 21 + 2.9
Damage: 38 44 | HP: 454 | Mana: 273
HP Regen: 0.73 | Mana Regen: 0.85
Attack Speed: 0.68 | Armor: 1
Crystal Nova
Crystal Nova (V)
Blasts enemy units around a target point with a wave of damaging frost that slows movement speed and attack rate.
Level 1 - 100 damage and slows for 3.5 seconds.
Level 2 - 150 damage and slows for 4 seconds.
Level 3 - 200 damage and slows for 4.5 seconds.
Level 4 - 250 damage and slows for 5 seconds.
Damage type: magical
Will slow the affected units' movespeed by 30% and attack speed by 20%.
Casting range: 700
Area of Effect: 400
Mana Cost: 100/120/140/160
Cooldown: 15 seconds
Comment: This spell has 2 uses. One - later in the game, once you have 1000-1200 mana, or feel comfortable, use it to creep. Focus your fire on a creep, and when its in the red Nova the creep next to it, letting the nova damage get the kill and the main damage starts a second one. This gets you multiple kills. The second use is in a chain. Use it after Frostbite and Ult, as the enemy is running away. It may seem weak, but it will be your coup de grace many a time.

Frostbite
Frostbite (E)
Freezes the target in a case of ice, prohibiting movement and attacking. Deals 70 damage per second.
Level 1 - Disables the target and deals 70 damage per second, lasts 1.5 seconds.
Level 2 - Disables the target and deals 70 damage per second, lasts 2 seconds.
Level 3 - Disables the target and deals 70 damage per second, lasts 2.5 seconds.
Level 4 - Disables the target and deals 70 damage per second, lasts 3 seconds.
Damage type: magical
Blink- and Metarmophosis-based skills cannot be used while under the effect of Frostbite.
Lasts 10 seconds on creeps level 5 or lower.
Casting range: 500
Mana Cost: 115/125/140/150
Cooldown: 10
Comment: This is your key spell. Use it very liberally. Meaning use it a lot. This spell is all about the enemy hero. If you're being chased, this saves your life. You must use it before you ult, to get the most damage. Use it if you have friends around so they can get hits in. This is what wrecks the enemies day.
Brilliance Aura
Brilliance Aura (R)
Gives additional mana regeneration to all friendly units on the entire map.
Level 1 - Adds 0.5 mana regeneration.
Level 2 - Adds 1 mana regeneration.
Level 3 - Adds 1.5 mana regeneration.
Level 4 - Adds 2 mana regeneration.
Stacks with the Brilliance Aura given by Ring of Basillus.
The bonus mana regeneration is not considered for percentage mana regeneration increases.
Mana Cost: N/A
Cooldown: N/A
Comment: This is basically useless. It can be replaced by a mana potion or two, and generally doesnt matter once you start buying items. Spend the points on stats.
Freezing Field
Freezing Field (F)
Causes many random icy explosions in an area surrounding Rylai. Enemy units in the Freezing Field are slowed. Lasts for 4 seconds.
Level 1 - Each explosion deals 105 (170*) damage.
Level 2 - Each explosion deals 170 (250*) damage.
Level 3 - Each explosion deals 250 (310*) damage.
Area of Effect: 635** / 190***
(**) Total area of effect of the spell.
(***) Area of effect of each explosion.
Damage type: magical
The slow is applied on all enemy units within an AoE of 635, even if they aren't hit by any explosion (lasts 1 second).
Every 0.1 seconds one explosion is made, for a total of 40 explosions.
Aghanim's Scepter improves explosion damage.
Mana Cost: 200/400/ 600
Cooldown: 150/120/90 seconds
Comment: This is a killer spell. Make sure you are next to the enemy when you use it, as it has a radius and you want to hit them as they run. Which they will be doing. It is AoE so it can be used on invis chars too, if they try to windwalk and run away from you. Or if theres a major push on your base's doorstep, just run in the middle of it all and watch heroes scatter like roaches.

Skill Build

Early Game:


                                                    View Details for Null TalismanView Details for Ancient Tango of Essifation

Start off with a Null Talisman and some trees for health.  It doesn't really matter which lane, solo or not, just be careful of strength heroes.

Run in behind your creeps, and start going for gold.  When the enemy hero runs in, hit him with your normal attack once, twice if you can, then back off.  This may seem silly as you're so weak, but the other player will think the same thing and ignore the damage.  At level 2/3, and after getting some hits, wait till the come close to the creeps.  Cast a Frost Bite (hotkey E), hit them 2/3 times, and then cast Frost Nova (hotkey V). If this doesnt send them home, keep hitting normally and go for another Frostbite/hits combo. 
    -The point is, your not going for a kill.
    - You want to get to level 6, and it would be great to get the enemy out of the lane.

If there are 2 opponents, just focus on one, the Intelligence or agility hero.  Only bother with the second if they're really gunning for you.

Be careful with your mana, but not too careful.  The time to watch is level 4.  You want to ensure you have 440 MP at level 6 for a freeze/ult combo.

When you hit 6, play it cool.  Act as if nothing has changed.  Wait until the enemy approaches - they will think you're going to rely on range, as usual.  This is when you charge in.  The person will either think they have an easy kill or know what you're doing and run.  If they run, turn back.  If they stay, get the kill.

Run in as close as possible.  You want to be practacally on top of them when you freeze (hotkey E).  The INSTANT you freeze(E), cast Freezing Field ultimate(Z).  Being right next to them makes you do damage even as they run away. DO NOT move yourself.  This spell Channels.  Moving or doing anything stops your ultimate.  And when they reach the edge of your field, cast Frost Nova (V) to finish them off.

Now go home, buy boots and go buy a Point Booster.  If you cant get a Point Booster, go to your lane
and use your spells to creep, buy the Point Booster, and go home to heal. Buy trees.   This gets you level 8-10.
                                          This is what you should have :

OMG OMG and OMFG
this is bad in so many ways...
Rylai is ganker/disabler and initiator.
briliance and frostbite early, then nova and after lvl 12 put in ulti. if u have dagger. Help your team and stay only with them, dont farm, let your carry do that, be a babysiter for the carry if hes on same lane with you, let him get all kils. item build is irelevant. just have some hp and mana + dagger. BKB or linken in u can afford it later on.

125 By tasik 2011-06-14

omg,what a dumb "guide".
look at the comment of Freezing Field: "..., just run in the middle of it all..."
lol yeah,just run with Rylai in the middle of the other team; great tip

124 By Dpaps 2011-04-19

Maybe this build is for a one on one?

123 By Dpaps 2011-04-19

HAHA. Stop Bickering, i agree with Guardian Angel,
The main reason people use CM in a team
is because of FrostBite and Brilliance Aura.
But of course Crys Nova is important.
But not really something to max out early on during a game.

122 By The Guardian Angel 2011-04-19

You should Know that By level 7, 2 Manapoints Per second on your Spell casting Allies is Frikkin Imba and you only need that Disable for an Even greater Allied Disable and The Nuke for the slow.

121 By mawhpawh 2011-04-19

Your Skill build suck.
One Frostbite and one Crystal Nova then max aura.

120 By agirafols 2011-04-19

i'm just kidding
you should always get freezing field first when it is available.

119 By agirafols 2011-04-19

I suggest that you use these items:
2x Null Talisman
Arcane ring
Power treads
Dagger
Aghanims

And this is the skill build:
1.Frostbite
2.Crystal Nova
3.Frostbite
4.Crystal Nova
5.Frostbite
6.Freezing Field
7.Frostbite
8.Crystal Nova
9.Brilliance Aura
10.Crystal Nova
11.Brilliance Aura
12.Stats
13.Brilliance Aura
14.Stats
15.Brilliance Aura
16.-25.Stats
thats it hope it works.

118 By aaronli163 2010-07-21

brilliance aura is a priority on this hero and by the way, ring of basilius does stack with her passive aura. noob, get your facts right...

117 By i_am_ur_master 2010-06-04

hahahahahahahaaah, someone trolling on a 3 year old guide omg i cant believe this s**t, so stupid

To be honest, I'm not liking this guide though, much improvement is needed, even the builds.

116 By PrototypeJHGF 2010-06-04

hahahahhhahahahhah, Brilliance Aura at lvl 21, omg i cant belve this shit, so stupid

115 By mrbiggs 2010-06-04

Can someone just go through and ban all the people who post "NOOB GUIDE WTF" on all the old guides? Not because of anything to do with the website, but for sheer stupidity?

114 By lilciso2008 2010-01-03


daggger
null
bloodstone
aghanims
bot or treads
dagon

113 By LIBROSCORPIAN 2009-11-14

correction **1.RoB stack with Brilliance aura.

112 By LIBROSCORPIAN 2009-11-14

Q:How do you think?
A:You are a Noob.

because
1.Ring of Basillus stack with RoB.
2.Without Brilliance Aura your battle sucks.
3.You can only play like this in Noobiest pub games.
4.your guide (namely but I don't think so) is noobiest guide I 've everseen.
5.C M is a weak int hero(not a tank[I mean a strength hero with great Hp{for noob like you to understand}]) , agi hero with great dmg can easily kill you with your dmg Return item.
5.My sense says that you are a noob.

Why admin put this shit?

111 By slazeron 2009-11-13

i dunno whether your guide ok or not....
but...buy preseverence first, then blood stone...then upgradfe the damage...wowo...powerful
