Hachiman Lore

War. It is an inevitable truth of Gods and Men. Harbinger of death and misery, of orphans and widows, of safety. It can be brutal and bloody, lacking all mercy, stripping away humanity, leaving only violent souls. Some believe war is about more than victory, some believe it is how that victory is won. That a warrior can be honorable, can treat his enemies with respect, that he can retain his humanity. When there is war to be fought, this is the kind of warrior Hachiman teaches.

Pregnant with her unborn son, Hachiman, the Empress Jingu led a fierce campaign against the forces that slew her husband. Fearing her child's birth would slow the army's advance, she tied bandages around her belly and held him within for 3 years, until the war was done. Each day, she prayed she would not lose the child, that he would be born strong. That he would be a God. As 8 banners descended from heaven, heralding his birth, her prayers were answered.

Hachiman embodies all a warrior should be. Temperate but fearless. Deadly not ruthless. Respectful, to enemies and allies alike. He understands that war cannot be stopped, so he teaches how war should be.

Even in this, a war between Gods, Hachiman will retain his code. It is the humanity of the Gods that appear to mortals, that makes them love and worship him. Should Hachiman lose even that, then he is no warrior. He is only war.

I don't think Transcendence a good item on him. Devourer's Gauntlet is better. Also Soul Eater is an item for gods reliant on basic attacks and skills, which is not Hachiman case. See DV-8 critic build

Devourer's Gauntlet, Ninja Tabi, Rage, Executioner, Deathbringer, Poisoned Star for Crit build.

No, not really. Atalanta's Bow isn't very good and Transcendence should be built early so you can stack it quickly. If you're going with a crit build, use DV-8's guide.

Is it me that Hachiman's auto attack offset feels really weird. And I thought Ah Muzen Cab's offset was weird

I'm happy now that his auto attack offset is now fixed.

I noticed something else (not with Hachi though). I was using Hou Yi's Iron Crow skin, so not sure if it's just that skin's effect or what, but the arrows have a flame effect. I was shooting, then had to get closer to the screen to confirm...the flame effect is coming out the middle of his back as he first shoots! That's pretty sloppy.

They commented in the most recent patch that his basics were basically coming from the middle of his chest. For the console patch (this week, I believe?), they're fixing that...curious to see if you notice.

You know how there's a ton of advertisements for toothpaste and the like that say something along the lines of, "9 out of 10 doctors recommend it!"?

Well, 1 out of 3 (or 2 out of 6) of these builds recommend buying Hastened Katana. That's 33% building a melee-only item on a hunter, and you can't even say it's because they used to build Hastened Fatalis on him, because Hachiman and Fatalis have never existed at the same time.

for a moment I thought you were gonna say that when you google it you got toothpaste ads instead of smite guides XD

I'll never buy toothpaste again. But I'll probably start collecting toothbrushes.

No, you should still buy and use toothpaste. Just use plain toothpaste instead of that fancy "ultra whitening advanced cavity shield extra-strength™" that costs four extra dollars.
