Achilles - The How To Do

Achilles provides a lot of early pressure. If you want to get in their face, and attempt to solo kill the enemy ADC early, you can take off your armor for the laning phase. If you want to keep the armor on and be a bit safer you can. Its all about how you want to play. MOST of the time if you are playing Achilles its because their team has enough thick bodies that Fatal Strike will see a lot of value being able to remove the targets without having to burn to much time, and resources.

Achilles is not without his faults, outside of his 1 he lacks any form of CC, so you will need to be careful when moving through the enemy jungle so that you are not picked off. However in a team fight setting Achilles using Shield of Achilles to find a multiple persons stun can turn a fight into a slaughter. Utilizing your Combat Dodge is another great way to bait out abilities. This is also a strong tool when poking the enemy early game since once you make contact with them, you are allowed to use the ability a second time.

Overall Achilles is a good god to play in support, but you do need to take into consideration the enemy team. This is not a god you are going to be playing every single game, he's a more niche/counter pick in the support role. Picked into the right team comp this god is a giant win factor.

I'd maybe suggest mentioning to sell boots for Void Shield, or when you get round to phys support alt items add it as an alternative.
