Introduction


Hello smite community, my name is Hoggster99 and this is my first smite guide. Today I will talk to you about Ares, personally Ares is my favourite god and I think that he is one of the best guardians in the game,I would also like to share to you my opinion on how to build and play as him. Feel free to leave your comments on the guide to help me improve it.

First of all Ares is a Magical Melee Guardian who is designed to be very versatile in how he is played, I prefer to build him tanky with lots of focus on protections so he can guard the carry and also engage in teamfights without too much worry on the HP bar.

Skills

Ares kit is more or less designed for chasing down enemies and protecting your carry by crippling the enemy and also using your ultimate to pull them away or into the turret.

Passive:

Ares passive is Blessed Presence, whenver Ares builds an Aura item such as Sovereignty he gains 30 magical power, this is good because it can increase his damage output while also allowing him to build protection items

1st Ability:

Ares 1st Ability is Shackles, this is where Ares fires a chain and if it lands onto an enemy player they may re fire up to 2 times again but only if they land each one. These chains also apply a cripple and deal damage over time if you stay within a certain range. This allows you to stop enemy players from using there escape abilities while also dealing damage in the middle of a chase.

2nd Ability:

Ares 2nd Ability is Bolster Defenses, this provides Ares and his team mates with added protections and CC durations if they are within his range. It also increases the protections buff for every enemy that Ares has shackled. This ability should be used after you have landed your shackled so you can get more added protections.

3rd Ability:

Ares 3rd Ability is Searing Flesh he pours out flames from his shield in a cone shape for 5s, during this time he is immune to knockback, This ability is good when you have applied shackles so that you can activate this and they wont escape it and get the full duration on them.

Ultimate:

Ares Ultimate is No Escape He fires out chains around and they latch onto enemies in the radius, then after 2.5s they are pulled to Ares and become stunned for 1s but O.2s is added for each God pulled in. This ability is good for engaging as you can pull al the enemies to one area which can be useful for combining abilities with your team.

Items

With Ares you want an early focus on cooldown reduction and mana so that you may use your abilities more frequently, otherwise Ares is useless. Mid game you want to mainly work on your protections and health so that you can survive team fights, then if the game contains into a later stage you can build some magical power just to do some more damage.

You say "focus on cooldown reduction" yet you only buy one cooldown redcution item.
