Team Dynamic

When I play Cernunnos, I'll use his Winter Aspect to support my team (Slowing low health enemies, slowing a pursuer), and I'll use Brambles and Ult the same way. This build gives you the crit ability to snag kills, as well as the lifesteal to sustain-especially combo'd with a slowing ability like Brambles.

Keep in mind, this is a support build, so hang back a bit. It's great to push and you will definitely have to in order to maximize potential, but there is something to be said for hiding behind a Guardian and tossing out Winter Glaives and Brambles whenever they are ready.

Abilites

Spring and Winter Aspects are self explanatory. Spring should be used when below half health to help expedite Lifesteal. Winter Aspect is used for fleeing enemies for when you're being pushed. Summer Aspect was not covered, but can be used to melt Minions, Siege Minions, and Large Jungle Beasts.

Brambles are good for slows and AOE, use as needed. Once you build Malice and are criting often and reducing your cooldowns, you can use it more expendably.

Horn Rush is a great escape, and that's how I use it. It can also be used to ram Gods (As it says in the ability description), and chase low health enemies.

Lord of the Hunt is a great combo setter for your team, allowing them to fight unimpeded for 2 seconds. It's also great for disrupting a team fight.

Pros / Cons

Pros:
You get to be a good teammate
You can get a good amount of assists or kills (Depending)
Good Sustain
Escape Options

Cons:
Very low solo potential
This build ignores Autumn Aspect

First of all, thank you. Second, I don't know if you saw but I tagged you on my second Runeforged build. I think either Gulf or Bran mentioned Runeforge Meta , and I looked at other Cernunnos builds and got an understanding of it from your page.

Your arena build is a bit unique. But if it works for you, then it works for you. The crit build looks good. The for fun build is exactly what I use! Have you tried it out? Do you like it?

Anyway, thanks for listening to feedback. Have a +1.

Quick update, I played my first ranked game ever as Cernunnos tonight and build the For Fun Build, and it actually worked out pretty well. I went 14-3-10, factoring out a few killsteals probably put me at 10-3-10

I made an old arena build a while ago for my friend to grind to diamond, and I just used winter and spring aspects, so that's where part of that comes from, the rest of it was Gulf. And I'd seen your post suggestion and Gulfwulf's suggestion for O Bow and when I tried it it worked really well so I put it on here to share because I thought it was fun, thanks for showing it to me!

I know your "for fun" build is just that, but I'd swap Gladiator's Shield with Odysseus' Bow for the extra attack speed and poke.

Dear sir or madam,

I implore you to please archive this. SmiteFire is a site where we want to educate and discuss theory crafting to help players optimize their builds/gameplay in various situations against good competition.

Your build, which I am sure can be very fun, is NOT helping Smitefire's cause. This is especially true for newer players who may not know better.

So again, I ask that you please consider the archival of this. Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

A concerned SF user.

It's a sir, and I took your advice on archiving. I honestly am still relatively new to SMITE, after taking a 2 year break. I only posted because I had found SMITEFire and found a lot of good and useful stuff here, and when me and friends were winning games and I was playing this build I thought I would try and share it. Thank you for your insight

I don't like to assume, plus the jackass below has enough "content" for his videos without anybody adding more.

I'm more than happy to discuss your build if you like. Off-hand I'd say that Bloodforge is a bit early and you don't need two life-steal items; also, Malice is pretty terrible in its current state and Cernunnos is more of an ability/hybrid hunter, not a crit one, so you're looking at items like The Executioner, Qin's Sais, The Crusher, etc.
