Bellona, the goddess of War!

Bellona is a bruiser warrior, which means she needs to build power and defense because her job is to get into the enemies' faces and stay there while her teammates pour on the damage. If she can get a kill, so much the better.

There are a number of items that Bel can put to good use; way too many for me to go into detail in a build guide. Pick the item(s) that best fit the situation: if you're the main tank, take more protection items. If you're the secondary tank, get more power items and some attack speed like Shogun's Kusari and Witchblade provided your main tank hasn't already bought them.

Gulf,

Feedback as requested.
  • Starting with your as-yet brief writeup, I would say that although she's capable of good damage and could be classified as a bruiser, that doesn't mean she needs to build much power. Her base damage is very solid, and like any Warrior, she may - or may not, depending on need - build power items. Warrior Tabi is almost a given, but past that, you may or may not get any other power items. Masamune, Gladiator's Shield (in Conquest which this guide/build isn't about) and Void Shield are perhaps the most common items you might consider for power while still focusing on decent protections/utility. This might all be semantics based on your choice of wording...just pointing out how I interpreted it.

    I would agree with her getting some good use out of items that provide utility along with attack speed, but that they're situational as you list.

  • Starting with the build in your core list...the only item I might consider core there is Warrior Tabi, but you're absolutely in your right to list all of these as core for your purposes. Every match is different, and you will here and there come across funky enemy comps. With the consideration that only 1 god might be physical (or heaven forbid they go 5 magical), I would likely NOT build Breastplate of Valor. On the flip-side, I'd say the same about Bulwark of Hope, which is a purely selfish (though very strong) protection item. And finally, I don't think I'd consider Frostbound Hammer core at all, though of course it's a great situational item.
  • Altogether, I'd say that rather than indicate core, you might just organize your item listing differently. Group the CDR, bruiser/utility, and counter items together, or something like that.


    Not sure where I'd categorize Bulwark of Hope in that list...but again, you do what you want, this is just my suggestion and how I'd likely do it.

  • Your skill order is screwed up. You can't level Bludgeon to 5 at level 8. You'll have to put a point into another skill at 8. You also have 6 points in it.

In general, I like your first example build structure as a universal one (rather than just 3 phys/2 mag), but don't like your other build at all. Ancile isn't the greatest item for her in my opinion. She'll want some better protections, and some health early. Genji's Guard would be my go-to in that spot. And as stated before, I don't like Runic Shield at all.

And the reason I don't feel Bulwark is core is because, in the case of lots of healers, Pestilence would likely be my go-to as a complete replacement unless another tank got it.

Finally..."Are you not entertained" should be a question =P But that's a great movie.

Alright, further stuff cuz I know you want me to give you a hard time.
  • In your notes for 3+ Physical, you say "don't buy bulwark if there are no magical threats." I would say that you probably would also consider not getting Masamune or Spirit Robe, since part of their stats will be wasted. In that case, you'll be best going with other utility items...all phys really helps you sneak in functional, targeted items. With so much physical protection stacking, it also allows you to consider more aggressive options. Instead of Masamune, consider Stone Cutting Sword. You can also consider Brawler's Beat Stick for anti-heal. Sovereignty could even be an option, if another person doesn't build it. And of course, all phys would mean it's very likely you're facing at least 1 or 2 basic attackers, which means Midgardian Mail would be a really strong item. Of course, you don't want to have to list 20 builds, so examples are fine...but this goes back to my suggestion of a different way of organizing item types...other than your builds, you only have a "situational" category.

  • Those same points apply to the 3+ magical build examples.
Overall, though, I think those example builds are solid.

Runic Shield is good early game against magical solos. Ancile is more of a jungler item but can be built solo depending on the matchup. Also if you get Masamune on Bellona, then selling boots for stone cutting sword is also an option (same for Osiris and Erlang).
