E first because Powerfist is his bread and butter ability. It CCs, deals damage, and synergizes with Sheen rush. Yes, people will stand next to you for more than 5 seconds, as you open with a PF, it takes them a second to come down, you beat on them for a few, and as soon as you lose some distance, you hook and PF again.
