[WARNING]the Guide your about to read contains lots of mathematics.
Hello there you are about to delve on a fascinating ( at least for me ) journey into the fruits of my labor, the reasoning and numbers behind the item build and the tactics you should consider when playing the dargon of the eastern seas.
i hope you enjoy this guidey buildy thing and please tell me about any mathmatical errors or perhaps give any feed back on future guides i would appraciate the feed back Thanks.

Although Ao kuang can do massive amounts of damge,especially if you land his ultimate Spirits's TempestSpirit's Tempest this doesn't mean you should be gallivanting around like you own the place. Ao kuang is VERY SQUISHY and with no natural escape except for his SlitherSlither you should be careful with your positioning where you place your tornadoes and your overall awareness.To help elaborate i have posted a links to some videos by members of the smite community you may or may not know one being Drybear (of course)and who can help you wash down the dry glory but Squiiddish. now please take the combined advice to heart ( except the over aggression by drybear ) because you maybe able to learn!
FIRST DRAFT: July 21st 2013
Minor Additions: July 22nd added additional video and included icons
when doing the math in this guide i used the official smite website to find all the stats
- when looking at that smite overview of ao kuang i noticed the base stats had bracketed number beside them i'm not sure if they mean the total increase at lvl 20 or the increase per level so that is why there may be discrepency between the math and the total stats at the end of the Drybear video above.
Thank you for taking the time to look over this guide and i hope you enjoyed it and please post any feedback you see fit ( all important info will be featured in a additional section when helpful feedback is posted).
