Hello everyone, my name is silentshell.
I am pretty much strictly an arena player but will play joust on occasion. This is my first Smitefire guide and it is for any of you out there wanting to try out Bellona and/or needing help figuring out what direction you want to go with her. Before you get started, remember to check the tab at the top right corner of this guide to cycle through the different build concepts. Also be sure to check each build example for a notes tab because there is information for subbing out items if needed.
These builds are more tanky than a lot of more traditional builds when running with Bellona, but this concept is what I have been having the most success with on Bellona this season thusfar.
These are builds I have been running as I have been looking at which offensively oriented starters will work best for me this season. So far, I have had the most success in with an offensive starter using War Banner.
These are just more bruiser oriented builds allowing Bellona to build protections while also enabling her to pack some punch throughout the course of a match.
Scourge can be used to initiate combat and disarm an opponent. As you are fighting you can decide to Shield Bash if enemy tries to retreat or if you want to retreat so that you can slow them in either situation. If combat lasts long enough and your cooldown refreshes you can also reapply Scourge to disarm again whether attempting to escape or chase with Shield Bash
You can also initiate combat with Shield Bash to slow a fleeing opponent and secure a kill and be ready to hit any of their team that comes to assist with Scourge
when chasing opponents you can use Shield Bash and Bludgeon to close distance and/or secure kills.
when using Eagle's Rally try to place where the center target will land on multiple enemies. The more targets stunned, the less chance there is for counter attacks and more opportunities for your team to swoop in and get kills. You can also use Eagle's Rally to secure fleeing kills or stun to give yourself or other team members additional time to secure kills. Don't be afraid to use Eagle's Rally as an escape as well.
for escapes sometimes you will have to use Shield Bash Eagle's Rally and Bludgeon in succession to get away from bad situations. To further clarify, I am not saying that Bludgeon is an escape but in a pinch if your other abilities are not up it can give you a little bit of space when running/turning corners(it has actually saved me plenty of times by the narrowest of margins). Also, when escaping, make sure to never run in a straight line. Characters like Thor, Ra and so many others will be able to easily kill you when running if you do this
