Amaterasu Build

Starter

Notes *WARNING* This build may trigger you if you believe ability based Ama is better than AA Ama.
Now that that's out of the way, welcome to my third Solo Guide. Technically my second for Season 8, but that's not the point.
The point is, Ama's second ability is the onlt ability in her kit worth noting for Bluestone damage. So inevitably, Death's Toll is superior not only for sustain but in the late game as well with access to Death's Embrace/Death's Temper. Healing chalice/pots as usual. Blink for engage and more pressure, beads for extra safety.

First Back(If Possible)

Notes Ninja Tabi is the obvious pick up here because we are, once again build for our auto attacks. The more autos we get off the more we heal with Death's Toll. Your sustain should be good enough to keep you in lane and gather farm for your next item(s). If you happen to be getting ganked and/or are ahead i suggest purchasing a ward upon your first back to protect yourself. If not and you're laning pretty well you could settle for another healing pot. The choice is yours.

Defense

Notes If you can't afford the full tier of these items that's fine, just be sure you only buy which one you need the most. If you're against a physical, go Berserker's. If magical go Shogun's(Very similar to Bellona). Whichever you didn't purchase first be sure to purchase it next.
(A cool interaction with Ama's 1, it heals you and the passive on Berserker's Shield refreshes when your healed so i suggest waiting for that passive to almost then hit that X, Square, 1 button.

More defense, but it's Offense

Notes Stonecutting is going to put a dampener on any physical god you'll be laning against. I feel this wouldn't be the optimal choice for a magical foe but no worries, this next item will help with that. You should be trying to rotate around this time anyway making an impact on the map. Mid game is approaching, you need to prepare for the late game.

More offense, but it's...Defense?

Notes The Sledge is the perfect item for any Ama build. It's not an Auto Attack item but it's stats are too good to pass up. Giving her more health and mana as well as power, ccr and prots from the passive. The item is worth every penny. Plus, with more health/mana you gain more from Death's toll because the passive restores based on percent health. This item is soooo good and a must have.

DO NOT SELL YOUR STARTER

Notes This is where you get to choose what you want depending on how you're feeling and how your game is going. Things like that. I'd like to see a little bit of your own twist with these builds and guides cause in the end it's all your choice. I'm just here to help. Death's Embrace gives you more sustain, but Death's Temper gives you a crazy basic attack steroid on top of Berserker's and Stonecutting. So I suggest going for Death's Temper. Also don't forget your wards!

Selling Boots

Notes Me personally, I feel there aren't many items to really add to this list. Ama is pretty well rounded as is, she doesn't need much added to her item list to be considered viable. Maybe that's just the way i see it.
Void Shield is great for Ama and probably would be my first choice to sell my boots for. Pen, prots and power. The 3 P's, man. You can't overlook that.
Mantle of Discord is still a great item to sell boots for. The passive is great and you get decent prots and cdr.
Spirit Robe is really good for the passive alone, then you add the stats and it just gets better, man. Underrated.
Pridwin is really good for the passive, gaining a shield after your ult based on your prots. Not too shabby iffu ask me. And the explosion adds a slow to help with the chase potential.
Toxic Blade is more of an Honorable Mention than anything. It's not the best item to swap boots for, but it's good if you need the antiheal REALLY bad.

Complete Build

Notes All around, it's a great high pressure build. Not very much CDR but your cooldowns aren't incredibly high to begin with. Your auto attacks will hit so hard and you'll have decent flat pen and percentage pen on top of your passive giving you an edge on most other solo laners.

Other Items to Consider

Notes Frostbound is decent on auto attack gods like Ama. Slowing your opponent down is nutty especially when the squishy enemies are immobile. Then it becomes a field day.
Mantle of Discord is always a great item to build regardless of play style. The passive and stats feel really nice.
Spirit Robe is so underrated in solo it's unbelievable. I know i don't add it to many of my builds but I highly suggest giving it a shot. I would almost consider purchasing it over a Mantle.
Magi's Cloak is purely for safety because most of ability to engage is from your dash/blink but it's also your escape/chase potential. This item will prevent some of the cc from stopping you and your pursuit/escape.
Hide of the Nemean is good for high AA teams. Like a Cern/Merc or a Jing/Heim. But don't rely on it too much because every 15 seconds is kind of a long time to block autos when they're being pumped out 1.25 per second from 2 hunters.
Pridwin passive is nice on Ama because of the prots you'll have in your build and because you put yourself out of position when ulting.
Toxic Blade is good mid build but I wouldn't build it any earlier or later honestly. There's just better items for Ama. I prefer Pestilence, which is a magical defense antiheal item. Perfect for you if you so need to apply that antiheal.

Amaterasu's Skill Order Notes Point save with you level 8 point. Once you hit 9 put points into your 2 and your ult.
Pretty much max your two and put points into your ult whenever you can. I would then prioritize my 1 over my 3 because of the increased power and movement speed.
Your ult is so valuable the whole game. It gives you so much solo kill potential and chase potential.
Your 2 is your main wave clear so definitely max that.

They have mentioned this in their notes, but basically at level 8 you don't put a point into any ability and at level 9 when you would put a point into your ult you put it into your 2 and ult.

This is normally done because if you're putting a point into an ability that isn't useful at level 8, you wont get a point into your main ability and ult until level 10 so you're saving yourself a level missed. Only good if the secondary ability isn't that useful with the extra point.

Big Damage (34) | January 23, 2021 8:02am
Death's Toll is okay in a fair match up however because Ama loses lane so easily especially with all the nerfs she has had something like Warrior's Axe or Manikin Scepter might be more ideal for her to mitigate some damage.

With Death's Toll > Ninja Tabi > Berserker's Shield you are only getting any protections on your third item, and because of the change to berserkers those protections are only going to be 20 physical prot.

Getting Manikin Scepter instead stacks the physical prot with berserkers allowing you to be much tankier, you can also upgrade it late game to mankikin mace to shred objectives like FG and GF because with Ama's 1, passive and likely Shogun's Kusari she is incredible at shredding FG late game and Manikin Mace will amplify this further.

Even with her nerfs I feel Ama is still very strong. Her mirror still hits like a truck early game meaning her clear is still really good. Her boxing potential with Deaths Toll will be nice with her sustain but I see no problem starting with Manikin but I personally wouldn’t start Warriors Axe. I feel it’ll take away from her damage and the potential she has late game with Deaths Temper. I personally wouldn’t even get the upgrade of Manikin at all late game. Plus the whole point of the build is to turn her into a weed Whacker while still making her tanky. I gave quite a few other options for items though too. Also my notes are important to read I don’t know if you guys do or not. But thank you for your comment.

Big Damage (34) | January 23, 2021 9:37am
I mean Manikin Mace has health, physical protections, damage reduction and basic attack damage with a passive for shredding jungle bosses; which Ama excels at.

If I have more time to review the notes and the in depth build later on with this and the Chaac build.

Hello, all! I first want to thank you for checking out my build guide. Don’t feel pressured to use exactly what I built. The purpose of my guides is to show you a general way of building certain gods. You can do whatever you need to do in the end, but if you try the build let me know what you think!
