Item Purchase Order

Core
? Shoes just represents shoes in general

Rod of Asclepius isn't a necessity, or a 'true core' as Bran said, but greatly helps against anti-heals; something any decent enemy would buy. Also, due to being an immobile mage, the movement speed from it helps.

Spear of the Magus reduces magical protections on enemies for not only yourself, but allies as well allowing them to deal more damage. In addition, stacks are easily built up to the maximum when using Consign Spirits and Life of the Party.

Build Item Shoes
Build Item Spear of the Magus
Build Item Rod of Asclepius

Start #1
?You can either purchase Lost Artifact which will lead to Chronos' Pendant or Spellbook which which bring you to Soul Reaver. Instead of building stacks early, which is risky if you fall behind, building an expensive T3 item early may be beneficial for the stacks early game. Baron's Brew is like a Multi Potion that heals for more.

Chronos' Pendant provides a decent amount of MP5 with high CDR and magical power, making your abilities a bit more expendable than before along with sustain.

Build Item Mage's Blessing Build Item Lost Artifact Build Item Baron's Brew Build Item Multi Potion Build Item Mana Potion

Start #2
? Soul Reaver is great for providing extra poke and wave clear due to its high magical power and its passive. It also gives a lot of mana, which is useful for in-lane sustain. Good synergy with Book of Thoth.

Build Item Mage's Blessing Build Item Spellbook Build Item Baron's Brew Build Item Multi Potion Build Item Mana Potion

Example Build #1
?Assumes no enemy gods have self/team sustain

Build Item Spear of Desolation Build Item Shoes of Focus Build Item Soul Reaver Build Item Book of Thoth Build Item Spear of the Magus Build Item Rod of Asclepius

Example Build #2
?Counters healing

Build Item Divine Ruin Build Item Shoes of the Magi Build Item Warlock's Staff Build Item Chronos' Pendant Build Item Spear of the Magus Build Item Rod of Asclepius

Example Build #3
?Safer build

Build Item Magi's Cloak Build Item Shoes of Focus Build Item Soul Reaver Build Item Warlock's Staff Build Item Spear of the Magus Build Item Rod of Asclepius

Replacements/Situationals
? Magi's Cloak - Being a squishy low mobility mage, CC makes it worse

Winged Blade - Increases his mobility and helps him get out of sticky situations

Shield of Regrowth - An odd choice, encourages landing consign spritis which would increase mobility upon activation

Divine Ruin - Counters healing, a must have if there's an enemy healer

Void Stone - Useful if being harassed a lot by magical gods

Dynasty Plate Helm - Useful if the jungler is constantly harrasing you. Provides some penetration and protections

Mantle of Discord - Gives a large amount of both magical and physical protections, along with CDR and a useful passive.

Pythagorem's Piece - CDR, and a lifesteal aura for you and your teammates. Quite useful

Baron Samedi, The Drunk Psychopomp

Baron Samedi



Baron Samedi is a death Petro Loa, one of the aspects of The Baron. Baron Samedi is a utility mage (like Nu Wa) that can heal and support team mates, while dishing out his fair share of damage. Baron Samedi is a low mobility mage with strong crowd control and unique skills. His abilities allow him to counter and control enemy gods. Combined with health-scaled abilities and a combo oriented kit, Baron Samedi can easily influence a fight.

Abilities



Hysteria

"Baron shares Baron's Brew, a powerful restorative chalice, with his allies from the Item Shop. Enemies hit by Baron will have Hysteria applied to them. Baron's abilities interact with Hysteria to provide bonus effects. Targets at Max Hysteria take 25% additional damage from Baron Samedi."

Notes


Vivid Gaze

"Baron Samedi animates two skulls, both which briefly charge before firing two beams of voodoo magic that damages enemies. The beams crossover wherever Baron Samedi was aiming. Enemies hit by both beams take 15% damage on the second hit.
If the enemy god hit is above 30 Hysteria, their Physical Power, Magical Power, and Attack Speed are reduced"


Notes



Consign Spirits

"Baron Samedi guides restless spirits to the ground and buries them. After a brief delay the ground erupts, damaging enemies standing in the area. If an enemy god is hit, friendly spirits fly the from the area and heal allies near the explosion or by Baron Samedi.
If the enemy god hit is above 30 Hysteria the friendly spirit cleanses slows, makes allies immune to slows, and increases their Movement Speed."


Notes



Wrap It Up

Baron Samedi throws his snake forward, wrapping any enemy god hit and dealing damage every .5s for 4s and slowing them until they are rooted.

If a god hit is above 30 Hysteria, the snake will also lash out at nearby enemy gods who stand too close after 1s. Enemies hit by this are injected with venom that slows them until they are rooted and deals the same damage but instantly rather than over 4s.


Notes



Life Of The Party

Baron Samedi pulls the souls of the living towards his Coffin, becoming CC Immune and taking 50% reduced damage. Enemy gods within range are pulled towards the Coffin and take damage every .33s. When an enemy god gets too close to the coffin their soul is ripped out, causing them to be stunned, take a large amount of damage based on their total health and gain max Hysteria. This ability persists for 3.5s or until an enemy god is pulled to the coffin.
If targets being pulled are above 30 Hysteria, the pull strength is increased.
