Strategy

On early levels, make sure Tidebringer hits the opponents as that is your main laning tool.

Ideally, you want to cleave off of creep with Tidebringer for maximum damage.

You can do X Marks the Spot into teleport to fountain to replenish yourself or allies.

Ask your allies to stack for you as you can easily clear those with level 4 Tidebringer.

Torrent provides vision so you can scout pillars for wards or Roshpit.

You can stack some of the neutral camps by using Torrent 2 seconds before a full minute hits.

Make sure to activate Armlet if you have one before using Tidebringer.

Maximum value combo: X Mark, Ghostship, activate X Mark, Torrent after Ghostship lands into Tidebringer.

In fights, if possible align Ghostship in such way that it goes over most of your allies for Rum buff.

In fights, position yourself to cleave with Tidebringer on as many opponents' heroes as possible.

X Mark yourself and run forward to kill a dangerous wave with Tidebringer if opponents don't have Eul's.

Counter Strategy

Kunkka's sword will be glowing when Tidebringer is ready. Play on the side not to get cleaved.

Kunkka will rise his sword when casting Torrent. Look to make a sharp turn.

Kunkka's Ghostship allows allied heroes that were underneath it to delay 40% damage taken.

Avoid fighting in choke spots and clumping up against Torrent and Ghostship.

Eul's Scepter is great at stopping X Marks the Spot pullback.

Lore

As The Admiral of the mighty Claddish Navy, Kunkka was charged with protecting the isles of his homeland when the demons of the Cataract made a concerted grab at the lands of men. After years of small sorties, and increasingly bold and devastating attacks, the demon fleet flung all its carnivorous ships at the Trembling Isle. Desperate, the Suicide-Mages of Cladd committed their ultimate rite, summoning a host of ancestral spirits to protect the fleet. Against the demons, this was just barely enough to turn the tide. As Kunkka watched the demons take his ships down one by one, he had the satisfaction of wearing away their fleet with his ancestral magic. But at the battle's peak, something in the clash of demons, men and atavistic spirits must have stirred a fourth power that had been slumbering in the depths. The waves rose up in towering spouts around the few remaining ships, and Maelrawn the Tentacular appeared amid the fray. His tendrils wove among the ships, drawing demon and human craft together, churning the water and wind into a raging chaos. What happened in the crucible of that storm, none may truly say. The Cataract roars off into the void, deserted by its former denizens. Kunkka is now The Admiral of but one ship, a ghostly rig which endlessly replays the final seconds of its destruction. Whether he died in that crash is anyone's guess. Not even Tidehunter, who summoned Maelrawn, knows for sure.
