King Arthur Build

Beginning Game Build

Notes This is your base of the build. Getting soul eater online is one of the Key components to your survival. It will give you the neccessary health to regain back from the wave and fron ither gods early on. So your spending less on potions, but this is what you would want to have early on. With the exception of 4 early potions to help you.

The chose of 2 items. Depending on the path your in.

Notes Now. Next step is to grab Warriers Tabi. Once you have gotten soul eater up and running, its good to get some movement speed going. Some people may suggest tank boots but I find that Arthur is fine without them. If you can manage how fast you can dodge attacks and what not. But. In the occasion if you are being bullied by a class that uses magical or physical power against you to much and you cannot get soul eater up in time. These are the 2 substitutes I would suggest after getting Warrier Tabi.
•Void Shield: this allows you to get some good early protection AND pressure against your opponents. Depending if the enemy team has 3 or more Physical or Magical Damage gods"we will get into this later".anyway's, It's good to choose one of these early on. But if your versing Physical damage God. Then void shield for now.
•Genji's Guard:this allows you to get some good early protection AND pressure against your opponents. Depending if the enemy team has 3 or more Physical or Magical Damage gods"we will get into this later".anyway's, It's good to choose one of these early on. But if your versing Magical damage God. Then Genji's Guard for now. Depending on who YOU are currently fighting. PO3/PO4 will explain what to do after. •PO3-Void Shield Chosen.
•PO4-Genji's Guard Chosen.

If you chose Void Shield.

Notes Now. Since you have taken Void Shield. That means you are currently fighting a Warrier,Hunter, or Assasin in solo lane. You will only need to build this in the case that YOU are getting bullied a lot and cant buy soul eater in time. So you decided on this item to help your counter your opponent. Void shield is very good on Arthur. Especially if the enemy assasin is also bullying you as well. This will give you the defence you need for now and the damage you will use later on. Especially if the enemy team has 3 or more physical users. After you have built it you MUST BUILD Heartseeker after. This will bump up his power to kill and give him the ability to Destroy squishies. But if some mages are causing you problems or are coming to your lane more often. Or if there enemy team has to much healing. Try these out.
•Brawlers Beat Stick: Only build this item after heartseeker if the enemy team has to much healing or if some healing mages are causing you problems. Especially build this if the enemy team dosen't do as much damage to you. If your brave enough.
•Runic Shield: Build this if the enemy's team has To much magical damage and it causing you pain. This will give you the needed magical protection ""for now"" until we can get another item later on. If it's needed.

So. After you have build 1 of these items. If it needed, the item to replace your blessing CAN BE Brawlers Beat Stick. If the game is going well and Runic Shield is giving you the necessary protections ""for now"". Brawler Beat Stick can give you that neccessary Anti-Heal to REALLY get the enemy team to fear you. If not and they still Hurt you. Get Hide Of The Urchin to replace your blessing. It gives you some shields to get into that fight and very useful with the extra health it gives you as well. But remember. Its okie build Brawler's or Runic as your 5th item. Just make sure you know your situation your team is in.

Lastly. To replace your booties. Buy The Sledge. This is the Best item for Arthur to replace his Booties. But before you buy them. Get speed potion. Its gonna be worth it so your not slowed down later on.
•PO5- for the final build for people who went the Void Shield route.
•PO6- for the final build for people who went the Runic Shield route.

Arthur's Endgame. Void Shield

Notes Welcome, this is the more Aggressive Endgame for Arthur. I don't really have much to say about this. Once you have read the other section's of this then you should know what items to replace. But this is the more aggressive Arthur. Just to remind you.

You can replace Brawlers for Runic Shield only if needed. So dont be afraid for that extra magical protection.

Arthur's Endgame. Genji's Guard

Notes Welcome, this is the more Defensive Endgame for Arthur. I don't really have much to say about this. Once you have read the other section's of this then you should know what items to replace. But this is the more Defensive Arthur. Just to remind you.

You can replace Hide of the Urchin for Brawlers Beat Stick only if needed. Its great if there team of ""mages"" mostly have healing. Dont worry about the hunter or assasin. If you can combo fast enough then you wont need to worry about defence for them.

I'm not trying to sound proud of myself. Just take this into consideration and give it a try before you start to rant about it. It's not gonna bite.

Pretty good build. Ive never had the same success with soul eater over Gaia. Might be my playstyle preference in the early game. I like the extra health. Good guide though. I think you have a typo in the skill chronology. Arthur's 1 should be his first skill yeah?

No no, the battle spike helps way much early game with pinning down the enemy and getting a clean kill, personality for me I am a very aggressive Arthur player, if you were to use the knock up and slow early on. It can really help disrupt the enemy your fight and give them a good scare at the beginning. You might even snatch up a kill at the start as well. But as for soul eater. It's for those lovely minions, the health from them will easily supply you and even some enemy gods at time as well. Just make sure your circling them and giving them the pressure they deserve. I'm not one for a "defensive" Arthur.. I prefer this style of gameplay. Agression. But everyone has there own style.
