Amaterasu's Skill Order Notes You can switch up Divine Presence with Heavenly Reflection if you want more sustain than damage, though I do not recommend this as the heal is very small and it costs quite a lot of mana.

Introduction

I created this build as I wanted to share my thoughts on gods like these for a support build.
After playing around for a bit with Amatarasu carry, I decided to play her support, but I had to tweak a few items.
A big thanks to stpv_slender for the main idea of this tank build. I have tried it out multiple times and have yet to lose lane with help of a good carry.

Items

Starter


Sentinel's Gift is my default support starting item in season 8. Another possible candidate is War Flag upgrading it into a War Banner. I chose Sentinel's Gift over War Flag because it gives more survivability rather than damage output. This is mainly a damaging tank build, and this item is essential. Try to upgrade Sentinel's Gift into Sentinel's Boon as soon as you can (minimum level 17)
Item 1

Ninja Tabi is a base item for Amaterasu. She needs the +25% Attack Speed you get from it and the bit of Phyisical Power and Mana you get is just a bonus.
Item 2

Toxic Blade is a base item for Amaterasu support. It gives a decent amount of HP and Attack Speed. It helps with building a default Amaterasu and helps her tank a lot more.
Other Items
All other items are very situational. Do you build more damage output or do you build more Phyisical Defense? It all depends on your lane and the rest of the enemy team. What does Physical Protection do against an entire Magical team? Nothing. So be smart in your decisions. It might be easiest to build Hide of the Urchin and Magi's Cloak as they are both general items for HP and a little bit of both Protections.

Pros / Cons

Pros:
  • Good burst damage
  • Great mobility and escapes
  • Great ult to setup for ganks by your team's jungler
  • Good supportive capabilities
Cons:
  • Very squishy
  • Difficult to play
  • Reliant on a good carry/jungle
.

Summary

Amaterasu is a very damaging support with good engage and escapability.
Any ideas or suggestions are welcome.
This is my first guide and I couldn't really care less to make it all pretty, but if you people enjoy the guide I might spend a bit more time tidying up this guide and making it a bit more in-depth.
Be sure to check out my other guides :)
