Ares chain damage

This build is quite similar to the recommended build, but I left out the part when you sell mark of the vanguard. Depending on the situation, you will want to keep that item until you need to sell it to get your last item, or you will want to sell it after getting blink as to help get more aoe items. The main thing about this build is to increase your magical damage with your chains, then use bolster defenses so you can buff your team. After shooting all 3 chains at your opponent, you can use BD (bolster defenses) it will gain another stack of defenses, allowing even your minions to take a huge amount of damage as compared to when they did not have the buff on them. Also, this build is to give you access to one more item of your choice. I am at the time of writing this, mastery 2 with Ares, so I have a general understanding of how he works, but am still learning. I will most likely post more builds for him for various different kinds of situations. Usually I will get Pythagoreams Piece because it gives my team an aoe magical lifesteal, but you should not get it if you are the only magical damager. I am open to any criticism, good or bad, so if you have any thoughts on how I could improve this build, let me know. Again, this build focuses on using Ares chains and BD as to both keep your team alive and to do lots of damage. Please let me know what you think.

Sorry, but this build isn't very good, as an Ares player, I really can say this. Needs tons of work, needs more defenses, or maybe it just needs to be archived, not to be rude or anything, but it really isn't very good. You don't even tell people how to play with this build.

The biggest beginner ares mistake: you buy literally 5 aura items with boots just to proc passive.

You have to weigh it out. Is the aura for 30 magical power worth dying quicker?

Bracer of Replishment is a horrible item to build *6th*. It's literally ONLY useful early game for sustain. You have nearly no magical protection, and you have 0% crowd control reduction. Finally, you have 0% cooldown reduction, which is pretty important in the teamfight phase for being able to use your ult every time blink is off cooldown.

Even in a build for 'bruiser damage' ares, this is just...iffy at best, because you're going to die in an instant. You don't have the mobility or survivability for your chains to do any damage.

Also, why wouldn't you include a skill order...that's kind of core to a guide, even if it's just a build guide.

Finally, you include that you left out the part where you sell Mark of the Vanguard....but leave out what you suggest you replace it with.

But if you take anything out of this, it's learn that Aura items are

NOT


an end-all-be-all for Ares.

There is only reinforced greaves in game now and even before you couldn't pick up both of them. Also if you want to use your ult at all you need some cdr to attempt to beat enemies who pick up beads. Also the general ares strategy would generally involve applying Shackles and then hitting them with your Searing Flesh. You use Bolster Defenses as needed to push minions or to increase your, or allies, survivability during different scenarios such as your own ultimate or when pushing or retreating.

Terrible guide.
No BBCoding (here's a BBCode guide. And here.)
No explanation as to the items you use, no skill section, no gameplay section, only semi-good thing here is the build, and even that is bad. No paragraphs, no sections at all, and one huge wall of text that was painful to read. Not trying to be rude, but please improve off of what I said if you want to make a good guide. If not, let this die. Downvote.

Hi ^^ was checking out your guide and I like it. One thing I am curious about though,You have reinforced greaves up there with the plated graves. Are you saying to buy both types of boots? I myself wouldn't recommend picking up the reinforced graves on ares, considering he is mostly a tank or atleast that's how most people play him I would say the plated graves are far more valuable to the player especially since using your ult grants you cc immunity. Really the only way the can stop it is by using purification beads. 20% CC reduction isn't bad depending on the situation but I think that the plated graves would be far more helpful in most cases. For CC reduction I would pick up a Hide of Leviathan over the Bracer of Replenishment it gives you the same ammount of mana plus extra health and protection then the cc reduction. This is
just my opinion of course, I do play tanks a lot however so I guess take it for what it's worth.
