Ares the god of war

Ares is the god of war, feared by many!
so is he on the battlefield, the rinkling chains make people use anti-cc actives all the time! With this build you can get faster then the beads and make your teammates so fed with the kills you give them that the enemy won't stand a chance!

Pro's and Con's


-ares is very good at making assists and will be build for that.
-People will spill money on actives, your teammates will have a moneyadvantage!
(you'll be faster than the beats)
-ares doesn't die that easy and escaping from him is a very hard thing when locked in the chains.
-He can push good cause bolster will defend your minions, only almost none basic dmg.


-Ares is useless without mana, and thats a real problem.
-alone you don't have a chance against most of the gods.
-He is hard to learn to play well if you don't know the right tactics.
-almost no minion dmg except for the fire, but it doesnt do much too (for that we use wrath!)
-he is hard to level cause lack of damage on minions


Passive: great to get alot more damage! not much to say though

Chains: slows enemies, speeds you up, damage every second... Wow what much more can we say about this, In combination with fire it's very OP if you use it at the right time.
Chasing enemies is so easy! And if one chain isn't enough just fire 3! you though need to keep in mind that you shouldnt miss them!

Bolster: Gives more def to you and every ally around you, usefull for pushing into enemy lines

Fire: Does damage per second in a triangle shaped area, Last a pretty long time but can be canceled if you have to, Real good in combination with the chains

ULTI: The most OP and UP Ulti in all of smite. Without any anti-cc items is your enemy doomed, With it's damage and stun that goes up to 2s in conquest you are feared by all opponents, they might even run away. But if they do have those items... well you can be faster then their beads.

Team Work


ares must be played with a good team, his ult can destroy a team in seconds if your teams coorperates and just comes to you and kill them all, MASS KILL

Looks like a good build but the skills seem a little iffy.

More bbcoding, Gameplay section, LOSE MEDITATION, sov needs to e purchased earlier, more explanation at skills, your missing an items section, teamwork is too short, add more.
I must downvote for now, pm when you changed the guide.

A rather short build, some things to extend it could be talking over how early/mid/late game go and how Ares scales, also a tips and tricks section is always a + . Also try some BB code and color around statistics to help them pop out.
