& Mana Potion
At the start of the game we will have enough gold for three potions. It is your decision on how many of which to buy. I prefer two Healing Potion
and one Mana Potion
. If you find yourself having health or mana issues later in the game feel free to buy a few.
Shoes of the Magi
& Shoes of Focus
The choice between these two items is simple. Shoes of the Magi
for the Magic Penetration and Shoes of Focus
for the slightly higher movement speed and cooldown reduction.
I prefer Shoes of the Magi
& Doom Orb
& Book of Thoth
These items are your bread and butter, snowballing. The order in which you pick these up is dependent on your situation but grabbing Warlock's Sash
before Book of Thoth
is generally better because it takes longer to stack.
Adding Doom Orb
into the equation is a high risk high reward move considering half your stacks are lost on death. However
, Anubis has amazing wave clear and can re-stack it extremely fast. I would only recommend getting Doom Orb
if you're ahead and are very confident you can hold onto that lead.
The reason Book of Thoth
is amazing on Anubis
is because he has one of the highest base mana pools in the game and nearly all of his viable items provide additional mana.
Rod of Tahuti
This item will give us more Magical Power and MP5, but most importantly at Tier 3 it gives us 25% additional Magic Power. With the stacks you have earned from your items, your abilities should now have very high damage.
Gem of Isolation
More Magical Power, Health, and Mana. The special trait of this item is that Tier 3 will give you a 35% slow for 2 seconds with your abilities. Your Plague of Locusts
, Grasping Hands
, and Death Gaze
will all strongly benefit from this.
More Magical Power and Magical Penetration.
This item gives us Magical Power and Magical Protection and at tier three it grants us an aura that reduces the Magical Protection of enemies within 55 feet. You should pick this up if you need the Magical Protection and/or the reduced Magical Protection of enemies.
