Radiate bolt may be ranged, but most of Ix's damage comes from the scatter, making him most deadly in melee range.
Always be mindful of where you are and where your target is during displacement to avoid accidentally putting yourself in a bad spot.
Open every engagement by creating a Psionic Bond. Its benefits are crucial to Ix's teamfight power.
If you see a low health teammate fleeing an enemy, immediately use Psionic Bond. You can either heal them to safety, or Displace to substitute them for yourself and begin attacking.
Both Ix and his target are untargetable while displacement takes place. Time this accordingly to protect you and/or allies from damage, but be careful when displacing enemies, as you may accidentally protect them from your team's own damage.
You can Displace a fleeing enemy to set them farther from safety and block their path of escape.
Try to only Displace when you really need it. Displacing puts Psionic Bond on a longer cooldown, which may hurt your next engagement.
Displace can also be used as an escape. Simply bond with an enemy who's ahead of you then reactivate to travel forwards.
Don't be disappointed if Psionic Bond hit an ally instead of an enemy by mistake. All of Ix's upgrades benefit both it's offensive and supportive utilities. Simply switch your focus to aiding your ally.
Combined with Ix's powerful jump, Refract allows Ix to extend much further than he should be able to. You can use this to chase or push more safely.
Ix can use his Psionic Bond to heal you and (with certain upgrades) give you extra effects. Stay close to Ix, as the bond will still break with distance.
If you are playing a 'naut that's very dangerous at melee range (such as Clunk, Ayla or Skølldir, for instance) consider coordinating with Ix and having him charge at the enemy team and quickly displacing, putting you in range of your enemies more quickly.
When playing a very mobile 'naut, consider slowing down a bit if you feel like Ix is trying to heal you. Psionic Bond can still miss.
Keep an eye on Ix if he has an enemy bonded. Watch for a Displace; it has a notable cast time, so you can prepare to attack the Displaced enemy.
Alternatively, try to cover Ix's escape if he misjudged his Displace and is in a bad spot.
