ADC (Pen)

Notes Hunter's Cowl will provide us with the lifesteal we need, 60 power, 20% attack speed, 15 MP5, and an insane 25% attack speed aura. If you are not near a teammate, you are granted 10% movement speed

Ichaival will provide you with 80 power at maximum stacks, 30% attack speed, and slows enemy attack speed by 21%, this is an insane early power spike. As you will have 35% attack speed with Leather Cowl

Odysseus' Bow provides us with 40% attack speed at a very cheap price of 2100 gold, not only that, but it provides us with an awesome passive. The passive is that every fourth basic attack triggers a chain lightning that damages nearby targets which help with boxing and wave clear. This item is a killer in team fights as the enemy's health zap down drastically.

Atalanta's Bow provides 25% attack speed (45% attack speed with passive proc), 40 power, and 10% pen, with 30% less movement penalty to backpedaling, attacking, and strafing with the passive proc.

Qin's Sais provides us with good power, attack speed, and extra damage to high-health enemies.

Titan's Bane provides you with 40 power and 20% penetration, plus your first ability is granted 20% additional penetration every 10 seconds. We are building this mostly for 20% pen that we will be getting on our auto attacks, that make us SHRED tanks and objectives much faster.

Hey I'm new to the game and I have a small question, when do you go for the pen build and when do you go for the crit one? is it based on preference or on the gods that you are facing/playing with?

Bow build comes online earlier, crit build comes online a bit later but has more single target AA DPS.

I also feel some of it is preference, and some of it is god specific. Like, you'll get way more out of the bow build / Silverbranch if your god has a steroid that can greatly boost their AS. Artemis, Apollo, Rama, Izanami, Chernobog etc. all have very strong steroids with good duration (or in Apollo's case pretty quick refresh) that can help push a high AS bow build significantly past the cap and get the most out of Silver's passive.

You're going to get way less overall from the meta bow build (Cowl, Ich, Ata, Silver, Qin's, O-Bow) if you've got a god like Anhur who has no steroid. (Granted, the build recommended here is using a variant of the bow build that's much better for Anhur and I'd follow that for him)

As Kriega said, you're looking at a different power curve when you go with a crit build. Bow builds start early with Ichaival, which provides a huge power boost and strong boxing potential. If you go with a crit build, you may or may not build Ich in that spot. Crits are also typically much more expensive items, so you'll finish your build a bit later. But crits are great against objectives like the GF and FG, and in general give you a much higher overall average DPS...it's just not as reliable due to the RNG of crit chance %.
