You basically copied your Bacchus build onto Athena. It's exactly the same except for Bancroft's Talon and Chronos' Pendant as alternatives to Gem of Isolation

Athena's base protections are enormous so building some extra health on her would be way better instead of all these protections.

A gameplay section to show of her combos and how to play her would be nice as well.

Also writing down the entire skill info when you can just hover over the icon to see it is pretty pointless.

On the other hand, your use of BB coding is really good and all the images really provide some alternation when reading the guide.

To sum it up, the layout and presentation of the guide is really good but using exactly the same build on 2 gods shows that you probably should try out some new combinations as well.

This guide is months old and way outdated, and the only reason I don't archive it is because it got pretty good critisism ans people still use it as a valid guide. I personally really liked the listed build on most tanks and I just put what I use, not because of the bacchus guide, I do not think I am gonna change tbis guide ever, but combos might be a good idea if anyone else is writing a guide for her.

Nice guide, holy ****. I love the effort you have put into this guide. Finally a guide that actually covers everything. Deserves to be the top guide. Also a mad build, +rep +(y) Thank-you so much keep up the good work,.

I think this is a great guide. It just seems to me as there is a little too much color and spacing could be improved. However, still upvoting.

Aaaand... you posted it.

I'm really not happy that you published this so early, but it does look pretty good.

I'm not upvoting it until I see more for it and once that week period ends.


Youre a huge jerk

This guide is a HUGE NO-NO for Athena!

Chronos Pendant AND Breastplate of Valor?? 50% CD reduction is not possible because there is a CAP at 40%.

Gem of Isolation when you have no1 ability? No1 ability last 12% LONGER than the debuff from GoI. Not only that but your no2 ability DOES NOT activate the GoI effect... So you'd be using no1 (which ALREADY triggers a LONGER lasting slow) -> 3 to drop the damage -> 2 to pull them in for the blast... you simply can't miss and you don't need GoI.

Start build with Shield Wall THEN Preemptive Strike?? That just breaks your low lvl gank opportunities for your fellow lane partner.

Athena is INCREDIBLE at securing kills early game. She's as good as sobek for trapping people and setting up low-lvl ambush with her no2 ability.

You're definetly NOT playing her right when u say things like
- Pretty low CC compaired to other tanks
- Early game could be better
- Struggles to solo inditate fights << also a typo here

Co-ordinate with your team and play her like aggressive. She's more like Sobek than Ymir. High mobility (dash & teleport ulti), great initiation/peel off. You can have ANYONE initiate when you have your ultimate ready. They jump in have 50% damage reduction and u get to deal out a LOT of damage when u come in.

Also Wall of Absorbtion instead of Mystical Mark??? AoE magical dmg, Life bonus and protection gets left behind for 45 more phis prot some MP5 and a measly 30magi power... AoE DAMAGE in groupfights does a LOT more overall. Not only that but creep killing is way faster and allows u to solo lane so that your partner can jungle. How is Freya a hard fight yet Fenrir an easy one? Freya has 1 escape her ulti while u buff fenrir by taunting him to u... Once Freya's ulti is done u can CC slow & taunt her for a gank no-prob... early levels she doesn't even have a chance.

I think we play this character far to different and personally I think that your build isn't very effective and leaves you far too vulnerable early on. She's an aggressive character with a lot of potential for ganks.

what's your opinion on using polynomicon? many people claim that it doesn't work with her passive but when I've tested it it seems to work fine (maybe it was a bug that has been corrected). it adds a lot of extra damage since you can easily get in a basic attack in between most of your spells. but i almost never see anyone use it, do you know why? it works fine for me.

Well, currently the item is bugged as hell on her, but most of the time it worked for me, but than again not always :P
