Introduction

hello, and thank you for choosing this guide.
now, this guide is about tanking the start and the middle of matches, and then move on to those kills in the last stages of the match.

Items

the reason i picked reinforced boots and warlocks sash is simple because it gives you early physical and magical protection, and add damage health and mana to that and bam! easy lane domination with high damage lane partner.

mystical mark is again health and protection, but add 30 damage a second on top of that. if you get mystical mark in the start because of feed or whatever, that damage can really make a difference. but switch with magi's blessing if lanning with magical damaging god.

magi's blessing is great for magical protection especially because of it's "passiv". and gives you another big mana and health boost. simple as that.

now we begin with the damage.

we start of with obsidian shard, because of the big boost in magical power, and penetration. *hurr hurr hurr* penetration. but it can be switched with void stone because of the passiv (-30 magical protection)

and then pythagorem's piece to top it off with mana, lifesteal and power! unlimited POWER!

Skills

i start with shackles because it's good harassment, and then i pick searing flesh momentarily for farming issues, and then you can do as you please with the high damage you get later with the build.

remember your bolster's defence is great in combat especially in team fighta since it give you and all near by team mates protection.

your ult is OP near towers since you can drag them in and get hit, but clear out minions first since the tower targets them first. and later on you need to talk with teammates about combining ulti's

and dont spam any abilities early on! ares eats mana like a black man eats KFC (no offense only a joke)

Summary

ares is indeed very tanky and does alot of damage, but he can also gank with his ulti. but use it wisely since a wrong teammate can make it a waste.

Pros / Cons


Pros:
very tanky.
does alot of damage compared to being a tank.
works great with almost any god.

great right!


Cons:
eats mana
takes some skill to be really good with him.

.... yeah thats it...

Team Work

as said ares works great with pretty much everybody, but especially guys like Zeus, Ymir Hades and Odin. just guys with AoE that hits hard.

he's a simple guy what can i say..

thank you and rate.

thanks you again for picking this guide.
please comment on how i can improve this and future guides.
and rate me!
