A NEW MIGHTY SWORD [Patch 5.14 Updated]

August 9, 2018


Ao Kuang, The Dragon King of the Eastern Seas

In this guide I will show you how amazing it is to play with Ao Kuang.

First of all, A MIGHTY SWORD! In second, let me introduce you one of the best junglers in the game. As you know, Kuang is a mage type character with an assassin gameplay, he works well with any crowd control god and can burst your foes in a blink of their eyes.

The Ao Kuang gameplay is not that complicated as you thought, his 2nd ability Dragon Call can easily slain an enemy god in 3 or 4 dragons, with the effect of your Polynomicon you can do a lot of damage in a few seconds.
If your foes are trying to run, chase and annihilate then with your 3rd ability Wild Storm or with your 4th ability King of the Eastern Seas.*
If you got in a trouble and need to quit quickly, you can use your 1st ability Water Illusion to run in the opposite way that you might go and recall.**

The season 5 changed the gamplay a lot, now it's harder to up your levels, the map is 20% bigger and you spend more time farming than doing gank

* Use this ability wisely, if your target as Meditation Cloak, Aegis Amulet or Purification Beads, make sure to force then use in their dispair before eliminate them.
** The enemy gods will think you may go straight but you want to go behind them to recall or heal yourself in a camp.

Pros / Cons


Great Mid/Late game
High burst damage
Good Stealth
Awesome Lifesteal (His Passive gives him 5% lifesteal per stack)


Poor early game
Eats a lot of mana in early's
Easily stoped by crowd control
Dependent on skills

New season, old Ao Kuang, new build, old burst damage

Hey lads, I'm here again to explain the how Ao Kuang works in this new season, so prepare your popcorn, take a confortable seat and ease your mind will I.

Season 5 came with a lot of changes, since itens to gameplay. Now is time to learn again "how to play Smite".

My new Ao Kuang is based on doing the higher amount of damage without using a lot of skills and it's possible due to new itens or passives. For example Typhon's Fang, which increase your damage based on your Lifesteal or Rod of Tahuti which does 25% of your power as damage if target is below 50% life.

This is why i love Ao Kuang so much! New itens only changes how you build, but the way played keep the same and fun gameplay. Now, enjoy this new build i made for ya.



With the coming of Season 5, the initial itens were removed and the blessings took their place. The blessing is a stack starter item which came to **** you up lol.

Joking apart, now you only can have one starter item and this complicates your life with Ao Kuang's start, because his mana consumption is very high and i'm still studying the new conquest mechanics. To put all in a nutshell, take the Assassin's Bleesing, a Tiny Trinket, Healing Potion and Mana Potion

After returning fountain, make sure of take the Shoes of the Magi, cooldown and mana is ok but penetration is better

As second item, I finish the Bancroft's Talon for damage, mana, lifesteal and it's passive.

As third item, you would like to have damage proc, so Polynomicon can handle this.

As fourth item, your final and deathless lifesteal Typhon's Fang, this combines with your other lifesteal to increase your magical power.

To finish my composition of itens, i try to rush a penetration and cooldown. Both Spear of Desolation* and Chrono's Pendant can handle this.

* In case of a healer like Aphrodite, Hel or Thanatos, a situational penetration item appears, and it's name is John Cena Divine Ruin
