DON'T FORGET TO CHECK THE OTHER BUILD TO SEE WHAT FITS YOU BEST
Note: The builds cost a hell of a lot of money, and I rarely manage to buy all the items, but this should be the order >_>
1. Boots of the Magi
- Obvious reason
2. Warlock's Sash
- Guan Yu is a little bit squishy and the WS will help you maintain your physical integrity when a fight comes along.
3.With Gem of Isolation
you won't fear jumping straight into 1v1 combat and losing it because of the escaping enemy anymore. All of your offensive abilities will slow the enemy leaving no way out for him.
4.This will eliminate your squishyness definitively, for Midgardian Mail
will help you both in battle with HP boost and escape because of it's 30% chance of slowing the attackers movement by 30%.
5.As your hero mostly uses his abilities to do damage, you will need both Magic Pen. and Magic Pow. therefore, the Obsidian Shard
becoming a must have for Guan Yu
If you think the battle is too easy you can leave the Midgardian's and go for the Rod of Tahuti
Depending on your enemy team you can choose between Midgardian's and Magi's Blessing
. If the enemy team has more physical fighters your can go for Midgardian's, if magic users - Magi's
The second build speaks for itself, there is just a bunch of mag. power and mag. penetration and again mag. power to vanquish your enemy.
A little info on how you can use the skills:
1.You should first max. the Taolu Assault because is both a good farming tool and damaging enemies. But don't try to use Warrior's Will and Taolu Assault on a god near the creeps in early game because you will remain with low hp very fast or even die.
2.While max-ing the Taolu Assault, Tranquil Gift should come along when pausing from the third skill and be maxed afterwards. Many of you would say "it's a useless skill, it gives very low hp and consumes a lot of mana if you want to fully replenish your health". It is wrong, this skill will enormously help you and your lane mate to maintain rhythm and not go back to base to refresh MP/HP + you have Meditation, but, of course, you should always use mana wisely.
3.The best combo I usually use (after I buy Gem of Isolation) is:
Tactician's Advantage, normal hit till stun goes off (there is no need of using all your abilities all of a sudden) Warrior's Will (most of the Gods have Leap/Dash/Speed giving skills that will help them escape) Taolu Assault (Now it gives slow because of Gem of Isolation) Warrior's Will again and then normal hitting. If the enemy doesn't die, well, too bad for you, but try repeating from Warrior's Will then Taolu Assault.
4. Warrior's Will is only good for slowing and last hitting as it does not do as much damage as Taolu Assault that debuffs the enemy of protections, buffing you instead. W. Will will only go to the max of 500-550 damage, which is not that much in late game, and the enemy will have armour, which of course will decrease the damage.
***If you don't like this build you can check the other one, it's an offensive build***
That's all for now :)
I'll try to update the guide when it will need to be updated, till then, have fun playing Gaun Yu, The Chinese Saint Of War ^_^
