I have been playing a ton of Imperius lately. Averaging around an 70% win rate with him in ranked now after 20 games or so this season. There are moments where you feel like a god - literally one vs fiving their whole team if you keep up Press Forward or you are managing your molten armor properly. Only use Celestial Charge to escape until you get your level 7. Post lvl 20, you will be doing S tier assassin level damage with Brand of Solarion. Delete any hero you can reliably auto in mere seconds with a few consecutive attacks. SHE GAWWWWNNN!

My preferred way to combo is to mount into melee range of my target. Auto them to dismount and begin with Molten Armor (E).Throw a Solarion Flare (W) through as many targets as possible when they begin to head the other direction. And then Celestial Charge (Q) through them easily since they are all slowed. Now the key is to get as many auto attacks off on your target after this by A moving with them. It becomes easier when your Celestial Charge slows later on and when your movement and attack speed is increased as well. Enjoy!
Burn The Impure
Consuming a Solarion's Fire mark deals bonus damage equal to 2.5% of the Hero's maximum Health.
Burn the Impure is my fav talent here. It will combo nicely with your 16 and 20 picks. Massive aa damage. Second fav pick here is Impaling Light and I can see it being better when you need the burst and know you won't be able to reliably auto attack.
Press Forward
Damaging an enemy Hero sets the duration of an active Regeneration Globe on Imperius to 8 seconds (unless it is already higher). While Imperius is being healed by a Regeneration Globe, he gains 10 Armor.
Press Forward is my favorite talent since that's the only direction I know how to move. FORWARD. Try to time your engagements & team fights off of when you can grab a globe. You will be a god. Especially good for winning the solo lane. If you are not the solo lane or you know that your team plans to team fight non stop / you will rarely be 1v1, then go Sovereign Armor. More value overall and doesn't rely on getting the aa for sustain like Battle Hunger. Sovereign Armor becomes super strong when you pair it with the cooldown reduction at 13. I almost always take those two talents together if I need to be tankier.
Flash of Anger
Consuming a mark from Celestial Charge deals 150 damage and gives Imperius a Shield for 250 over 4 seconds
Flash of Anger gives extra burst and incredible added survivability with it's shield here. Only go Holy Fervor if your team needs the wave clear.
Angelic Armaments
Summon a ring of blazing swords that grants 1000 Shield for 3 seconds. If the Shield lasts the full duration, this ability can be reactivated within 5 seconds to launch 6 swords toward an area, each dealing 140 damage to the first enemy hit.
Try to pop Angelic Armaments before you go in so your missiles are ready to fire at the end of your combo.
Pathetic Mortals
Stunning enemy Heroes with Celestial Charge reduces their damage by 50% for 4 seconds.
With the slow from this talent, it becomes mush easier to hit your auto attacks after you land your combo. If you are the only tank on your team or need a stronger frontline, then Divine Rage is the right choice. Divine Rage is especially strong if you went Sovereign Armor at 4, which I tend to do if I am getting focused and blown up a bit.
Celestial Swiftness
Gain 20% Movement Speed for 5 seconds after casting Celestial Charge. Gain 40% Attack Speed for 5 seconds for each Hero stunned with Celestial Charge.
This build and Imperius in general is really about landing those super powerful auto attacks that are buffed by your valorous brand. The attack speed here is usually the way to go. Combos very nicely with the rest of the build.
Brand of Solarion
Reduce the duration of Valorous Brand to 5 seconds, but it is no longer consumed when triggered.
SHE GAWN - You can kill a main tank in 2 seconds with this. You're already attacking super fast thanks to your lvl 16. Slap a hero with full valorous brand stacks a few times and watch him go from 100 to 0.
