Assassin's Blessing is now the go-to Jungle Starter, with it you have some nice extra Damage on camps and very good Sustain ( Assassin's Blessing + Bakasura Eat Minion ). Boots so you can start working towards your first item ( Ninja Tabi or Warrior Tabi ). mana potions can help with Mana Sustain if needed ( you already have a lot of Health Sustain, so healing potions are not needed ), and Ward that early can be useful on Invades.
Ninja Tabi/Warrior Tabi
Ninja tabi gives you a good chunk of Attack Speed, that is more useful for Bakasura than the higher Physical Power of Warrior Tabi, unless you plan on picking 3 or more Attack Speed Items ( you'll probably do ), then it's better to get Warrior Tabi because later in the game you'll exceed the cap when using your Passive Insatiable Hunger, because you want to attack as much as possible when activating Butcher Blades.
A problem that i always have with Bakasura is to keep close to my target, even with the Movement Speed of Insatiable Hunger, with this it's not going to happen often, but gods with dashes or jumps can still run away (if you don't use your Ultimate on then), it can be swapped for Frostbound Hammer too, for the Health that helps on your Survivability and Physical Power as a bonus, when i started with Bakasura i used this to not die so easily, but still, Hastened Katana will still be a superior Item.
Besides the good amount of Physical Power and Attack Speed, it's passive gives a nice extra Damage on every Auto Attack, especially on high HP targets and if you have high Penetration because it's passive is affected by Protections. It becomes even more effective with high Attack Speed ( that you will have with Bakasura.
That item gives you the Power, Penetration and Attack speed that are the best stats for a full power Bakasura, you can get it after Qin's Sais because high HP targets are a bigger problem than high Protections for Bakasura. You can get the stacks of The Executioner really fast and it gives valuable Attack Speed, making it superior than Titan's Bane for Bakasura, so The Executioner will be your go-to Penetration Item.
A cheap option for Lifesteal, Attack Speed and Penetration, but without Power, specially good option for the early game, but still valuable for Bakasura later on. The passive can turn the tides of a battle in your favor because of the sudden increase in Lifesteal.
A excellent item for boxing because it can give you a total of +30 Physical Power, +25% Attack Speed and +10 flat Penetration, besides reducing your enemies Power by a considerable amount specially earlier in the game. You could trade it for another item later, like Stone Cutting Sword or Bloodforge because it's passive becomes less relevant on the late game.
A sort of niche Item, to use it on it's full potential you need to get as much Attack Speed as you can, which is actually a viable strategy for Bakasura, however if you go for that you probably need to give up on a possible Defense Item, or buy one with Attack Speed, like Witchblade.
Can be a option if you feel like you need even further Movement Speed, the stats on it aren't bad at all too, although it doesn't replace Hastened Katana.
If you plan on doing a build based on Silverbranch Bow, this item should be a valuable option because of the high Attack Speed. The passive greatly benefits from high Attack Speed too, with more procs.
Stone Cutting Sword
Like Ichaival, that item has a pretty good passive for boxing and 1v1'ing that actually is valuable late game and can serve as a Penetration item, that comes with a very good +50 Physical Power and +10% Movement Speed.
This one can greatly enhance Bakasura's already good clear, a great option for the early game as a second item, it gives Bakasura lightning fast jungle clear which can be specially valuable for denying the enemy jungler farm through counter jungling. The stats of the item itself are no pushover too, besides the fact it works on Regurgitate cone attacks.
A luxury item that gives you very high Physical Power and some Lifesteal, with a passive that is awesome to pick someone in a fight then running away safely or proceding to your next target.
A decent option to stick to your targets and even have a bit of Utility with the Slow, with a better Survivability because of the Health boost. In most situations, Hastened Katana remains as the better option.
- Use the clear and Sustain benefit of Eat Minion in your favor, especially Early Game
- Make good use of your level 5 power spike with Regurgitate
- Proper ward at all phases of the game especially at late game
- Prioritize important targets like ADCs and Mages
- The minions from Regurgitate can block some Auto Attacks and are useful for added Damage on Towers and Phoenixes too
- Use Regurgitate cone attacks wisely, they extend the Range of your Autos
In this section i going to add some gods/things that synergize well or counters Bakasura. Bakasura benefits a lot from CC ( crowd control ) that can make enemies stay on place as much as possible, so stuns, roots, slows, cripple, pull are very good and knockback, knockup, grab ( if grab is used wrong it can throw the enemy away from your ult, if well used it's a ok cc for Bakasura ) can even disturb you. So the gods now:
|Ares: It's an awesome matchup ( a duo lane Ares and Bakasura made a very good kill lane when Bakasura ADC was a thing ), ares has everything you need in one kit : his Shackles have slow and cripple that are very valuable to you, his No Escape has an awesome pull+stun that can make enemies steady on your ult, he even has some protections and cc reduction with Bolster Defenses that are helpful because of how much cc can mess Bakasura and his Searing Flesh can be useful to help to clean a wave when on duo lane.|
|Ymir:Other very good matchup with Bakasura ( that works very well on duo lane too ), ymir has a very solid stun with Frost Breath that can make enemies stay in place for 2.25 sec, enough time for you to burst someone down, Glacial Strike have a good amount of slow for a large duration that helps you to stick to your target.|
|Xing Tian: His ultimate Whirlwind of Rage and Steel works similar to ares No Escape for you; it's a setup for your ultimate. His other cc ability, Hook Slam, is useful for making enemies stuck on place. Another good duo lane option, with his Furious Roar he can help you with cleaning minions.|
|Heavenly Wings: The main counter against Bakasura, with it they cleanse the slow from Regurgitate and can just outrun you.|
|Shield of Thorns: Another relic option that can be used against you, mostly effective on tankier targets, it will simply reflect your damage to you. How to counter it? There isn't really a way, you can just shred through it anyway, or stop attacking until the duration ends, depends on the situation.|
