Introduction

This build is designed to shorten the gap between you and everyone else, whilst applying utility to your abilities to allow you to hit that ever so damaging ult, all whilst keeping the tanky attributes often given to ymir. I warn you this is my first guide so it will most likely be bad, but please.. make of it what you will, and I hope it helps in some way.

This build is especially good when you begin to take advantage of ymir's passive early/mid game, using the slow from all abilities and the gem of isolation you can start clubbing people like there's no tomorrow and deal some decent damage.

Skills

Ice Wall:

Use Ymir's Ice wall to aid yourself and your team, you can also use the wall to escape or shut off members of the enemy team. The wall is best used when 'funneling' opponents into ideal positions for your team and to cut them off from any means of help/escape.

Glacial strike:

Ymir's glacial strike is very powerful, especially at the lower levels, this skill should be used to deal decent damage to the enemy team's squishier gods, it's found effective when combined with the ice breath to guarantee a successful hit on the opponent.

Frost breath:

Another one of Ymir's utility abilities, this skill can be very useful to shut members of the enemy team off and leave them as an easy target for your team to pick up the kill on. Best used to deal with the damage dealers on the enemy team, although can also be used as a form of escape or to save a team mate.

Shard of ice:

Ymir's ultimate is arguably to hardest of ultimate's to actually get decent hits with, the timing of the ult is key, and takes some getting used to, however if used in combination with the likes of Cupid/Hades/Odin/Artemis it can be very effective, it can also be effective mid fight when you know that the enemy team's escapes have been used to initiate the fight. When all else fails Ymir's ult can be used as a last ditched attempted to dish out some damage before you go down, as long as you give yourself enough time to cast it that is.

I have played with a Ymir using this build and he did pretty well. Seems like a nice build!

Looks good, I like the use of gem of iso to deal damage late game but soak damage still, interesting mix.

It's a good build, but I think it's so successful due to his laning partner being epic. :)

you shouldn't be going 27/2 your a tank not a dmg dealer i don't like this because as ymir you should be soaking up dmg instead of dealing it out

GREAT BUILD, just did 7/0/5 and won. Didnt pay atention to the explanation or skill sequence, just needed items. This is what i was looking for.

You got my vote +1

5 comments, all within 5 minutes of each other, all first post. Seems legit.


Gem of isolation is bad on Ymir. It last for 2 seconds. Frost breath last for 2.5 seconds. The only time you should be hitting glacial strike is right after frost breath (against decent players anyway). So Gem will wear off before freeze is off. And you shouldn't be getting gem of iso if you can't stack it.

Theres barely any protection.

Also

"It's a good build, but I think it's so successful due to his laning partner being epic. :)"

Obviously a friend.

really bad build. ymir is meant for tanking and taking huge damage to help his team with his amazing utility. his CC is amazing in this game so making him dps is really bad. i dont know why you have +1 votes. anyways this guide needs alot of fixes -1 sorry.

You must be a very boring person if you never try anything out.

Quite clearly this is not a tank Ymir build, that does not make this a bad build. A TANK Ymir build focuses on Ymir's ability to take huge damage and help his team with his ultility, this Ymir build, does not.
