Reasoning

Vampiric Shroud gives you a health and mana refill every time you kill a minion with anything, which helps early game sustain. Starter items such as Vampiric Shroud should be sold once the build is complete to be replaced with a better item, considering the small sustain is no longer useful.

This isn't very helpful, tbh. I main ao kuang and I wanted to see what other people think is good for him, and found your "guide". What you did was list out items that you buy on him, then explain why people should start vamp shroud (and item there is little controversy over). Beyond that, however, I'd like to analyze your build and hopefully you can explain some of your choices (I would really like you to reply with why you buy what you do, from one ao fan to another). Let's start with obsidian shard. I wouldn't ever build this item on ao, though I can understand why some would. It gives more magic power then Spear of the Magus (the other big pen item), and some think the 33% is higher than the 35 flat + 25%. Shard only becomes more effective than spear at something like 100 magical protection (haven't done the math in awhile), so if you want to rush a pen item there is no reason to rush shard. Get it late or not at all.

Next is void stone. This item is commonly picked up by AP support tanks, so the aura is already taken care of, but supposing they didn't take it, then Ao shouldn't be that close to the enemies for the aura to matter. Ao is all about staying back and popping tornados/ults. The stats on void stone alone aren't good enough to pick up, unless you need it (you dont) for laning phase. Item is much better on an Agni or a Ra, who get closer to the enemies.

As a side note, sprint should be replaced with beads. Ao's 2 is good enough to get you out unless you were really out of position (which you shouldn't have been).

Finally I'll go to the rushing Gem of Iso. I just don't understand this, TBH. The slow is nice, yes, but you should be getting something like a thoth early so you can start stacking. You only need the slow to chase or to get out, neither of which should be happening a lot in the laning phase (Which is when you wanted it bought.) I'd recommend buying iso later instead of voidstone, when you will need that slow for team fights and chases.

I'd like to finish off by reiterating that I do want your input. I'm not trying to be mean, I just wanted to know why you chose what you chose, and if you don't have a good stand-up reason for it then you shouldn't be making a guide.

First of all you need much, much more description than what is given, plus your going to need a more solid item build i would rethink the order in which you get some of the items.If you do decide to improve your guide make sure to add the laning (mid and sidelane) descriptive reasons for why you picked each one of those items and why you chose the order you did to buy them. Adding colour to make it more vibrant and exciting (less boring) to read would be very helpful, laning partners, gods that could counter [Ao Kuang] to try an avoid and even gods to target and try to gank in mid/early game to get ahead of the enemy team in level and experience. Last but not least dont forget to add pros and cons to that god.

In that paragraph i only covered the groundwork to start trying to accomplish for a highly succesful guide.
