Notes

This is a basic meme build



Seriously, DON'T use this in ranked unless you're 100% sure you're gonna do well or win. Also, it's pretty expensive.

Intro

"It's party time!"



My name's BusinessCat, I'm a PS4 casual player (who lowkey thinks he's a ranked player). Feel free to add me if you want, I have a unnecessarily hard name to pronounce: Adisx22

As you can probably tell, the builds above are top notch MEME builds, so please don't take it too seriously and try to stick with using them in casual games. So, now you probably have an idea of how the rest of this guide is going to be like.

Bacchus is probably one of my favorite guardians to build damage on, due to his incredibly fun kit and scaling. I think I've had more time playing Bacchus than most other guardians. Recently, he's gone up in popularity thanks to the AMAZING change to his Chug now being baseline. This means you can start stacking drunkenness at the very start of the game.

Pros 'n Cons

The King Baby


....... The Good .......

- He's tanky
- His is a good engage / escape
- Strong AoE CC
- Burst potential
...... The Bad ......

- Bad clear speed
- is his only escape
- His is easy to interrupt
- Mana heavy

Abilites

Passive:
The more Bacchus uses , the more drunk he gets. As the level of drunkenness increases; Bacchus gains a buff. Tipsy: He receives 7% less damage and gains 10 magical power. Smashed: It increases to 14% less damage and 30 magical power. Try to keep it in the "Smashed" area, especially before using your ultimate . Also, keep in mind that you gain a buff after using ; timing is pretty important and so is managing your drunk meter and mana.
Skill #1
This ability is the core of Bacchus's kit. All of his abilities depend on drinking alcohol, and how drunk you get. This ability gives you 40% of your as well as an added 10% when you kill a god. He also gains 15/20/25/30/35 protections for 6 seconds. The great thing is, you now get as a baseline ability, however, you don't gain the additional protections until you put a point into it. Put a single point into it after getting and and max it last.
Skill #2
His only engage and escape - so use it wisely. Once you land, will knock up everything in a small radius. If you were Tipsy, it applies a 20% slow for 2 seconds. is great when you want to close the gap and use either or for a strong combo.
Skill #3
unleashes a competition-winning burp that does ticking damage every .5 seconds in a cone, causing enemies hit to receive a 50% healing debuff for 4 seconds. If was Tipsy, it will also stun enemies on the last tick for 1 second. He's immune to knock-ups while channeling this, but not any other form of CC, so be careful becaue it's easy to interrupt and depends on that last tick. Since it has built-in anti heal, I hardly ever take other items like unless the enemy team is really stacked on heals - just in case you do happen to miss someone with your . It also stacks .
Ultimate
smashes his jug on the ground, damaging and intoxicating everyone in a pretty large radius for 6 seconds. The damage is pretty high for it being in such a big radius and the intoxication makes it hard to enemy gods to escape. If he's Smashed, he gains 20/30/40/50/60 magical power for 5 seconds. You should ALWAYS use this when you're Smashed, as the magical damage buff is too good to pass up. It's a great tool for team fighting, so I try to save it for that. Or in this case, being primarily damage focused, when you wanna try to one-shot someone.

Combos

Like most gods, has a few combos he can pull off and weave together, with the right know-how and experience. I'll list a few of my favorites, but keep in mind that DOES suffer from long CDs.

1-2 Combo


Start with a until Tipsy/Smashed, then engage with a well-placed , followed by while trying not to get interrupted. This combo is very simple, yet also very effective and widely used among players.

Intoxicate combo

Like most of his combos, start with until Smashed, but start with to gain the magical damage buff, followed by for the stun and stacks (if you have it). You can also weave in a few AA (auto attacks) between abilities (good for the build above). While they're stunned, quickly use to finish them off or continue your CC chain.

Dive Ult

This is mostly for obliterating the back-line squishies or people hiding under tower. Make sure you your way to Smashed first, as always. Plus, since you're diving, the added protections will help a lot. Engage with for the knock up / slow, then the poor soul(s) you just landed on. Depending on how fed you are and who you're diving, this will either kill them pretty quickly or almost kill them - in which case you can follow up with for the secure

Playstyle and Team fights

Since this is a guide for damage , most of your time spent is going to be focusing on engaging alongside your team or initiating ganks. While it's possible to steal buffs, keep in mind that you're not AS tanky as you should be, so try to do this if you can either A) follow it up with a potential kill, B) have a team mate with you for those high single target damage gods like or or C) get out of there safely. Pretty much use common sense. Essentially you'll be playing like a mage or assassin

As for team fights, your main goal is to lockdown and/or kill enemy gods. has pretty poor wave clear until around the mid game, but if you're playing him in arena, that won't be a huge concern. Pick your targets wisely, time your initiates and make some sick plays.

Summary

"Why can't there be more wine?!"




Basically - this guide was pretty much just to cover the basics for and give you some damage builds to play around with in casual game modes. It's my first guide on here, as well as a guide to not take too seriously and have fun with. I can't stress that enough. I'm open to suggestions and hopefully I'll be able to keep the build fairly updated.

Good luck and have fun.

If you're going to create this monstrosity of an idea, can you at least make some viable hybrid builds to go with it? You know, the kind of builds that may actually be useful to new players instead of making blatant troll builds?

You know usually I thought we didn't promote SoloDoubleJ tier builds but then again, here we are...

Not taking too seriously, but even being just for fun, could use some major optimization. More pen in some of the builds, more CDR, and better purchase order in some cases would make these builds significantly better.

In your anti tank build, you have ob shard 2nd. That's crazy talk. It should be purchased way later due to being %pen.

Yeah, I was rushing through most of it due to all the coding. It was 4 am when I finished so I didn't have time to change or add anything else because I was too tired, but I plan to do that sometime today.

Honestly I'm okay with 'fun' guides/builds like this if the author clearly states his/her intentions for it like this.

The guide looks pretty great and is rare in the sense that it's great at drawing the reader in. I know it's a basic guide but I would recommend adding a gameplay stages section. Also, it might be worth mentioning that drinks are on the house in the fountain.
