Hello welcome to my first guide and even build so wish me luck! I had it all done and it reset on me twice so this is my third sadly :( go hope you enjoy!

I'm also making this build since there aren't many newer season 8 awilix guides so i figured why not have a go at it.

Awilix is an amazing burst centric assassin. that can do amazingly with good setup and good timing when done correctly. you can send an enemy to the fountain with one combo.


Awilix has a very burst centric kit with lots of CC and a decent evade/escape

Initiative (Passive) - Awilix's passive which allowes her if she gets first hit to increase her physical power by 30%. Which in turn helps her already amazing burst if done right.

Summon Suku (1) - This is Awilix's Mobility/Engage/Escape pretty standard on assassins some what. The only note worthy things to mention about this ability this is what she is going to want to use to traverse the map since it give a good movement speed buff. This ability gets a penalty for strafing so be wary when trying to sidestep enemy abilities. Also summon suku can be canceled (dont jump) to give you the cooldown back which is good to save your engage/escape tool around.

Feather step (2) - This is Awilix's main source of damage. This is the ability you will be using for the most part you have to hit an enemy to use it. Other Noteworthy things to mention is how it scales based on what basic attack she is in her chain or rather her next one on her chain. Every third basic it gives an AOE effect and multiplies the damage done so make sure you use this ability on that attack for maximum damage.

Moonlight charge (3) - This is just a basic line ability nothing special here..... Just kidding Moonlight charge is your setup tool or alternatively can be used for flat damage but mostly setup. The core concept of how you want to use this ability for setup is being able to get behind someone using it and it will knock up enemy's that are hit. You can also hit them from the side and it will also knock up enemy's. This is to setup for your ultimate ability.

Gravity surge (4) ultimate) - This is the bread a butter of where everything comes together. This is where good setup or a nicely setup gank can change the game even if you're behind. Basically Awilix's Gravity surge is two things a stim and a pull. The pull is exactly what it sounds like brings your opponent to you if they are knocked up jumping or diving or a few edge cases like Scylla and Hades. Where as the stim is a self buff to your attack speed and physical power which combined with your passive can bring some crazy numbers.

Generally how your going to want to start your attack is 2 ways. Dive in with your Summon Suku then auto for your feather step to get its increased damage. Then after you use feather step you can cast Moonlight charge from behind to knockup into your Gravity surge.

Or option two you can flank from behind/through a wall and basically do the combo in reverse. Start with Moonlight charge then Gravity surge if you get a knockup. Into Feather step. Generally if you do the combo correct they will be in the fountain or a few autos away.


Bumbas hammer build is probably the better build. But with the Nerfs to bumbas that came i found protector of the junge just a viable. although bumbas is still the way to go Generally either option is solid.

As for the rest of the build im going to keep this simple. Crit/attackspeed on awilix i find useless i see people building it and it just isn't worth any kind of AA on awilix. When she can have some amazing burst you may say well it works for me but i doubt it works every game. Especially how Magic shell is in the current meta. and by no means is my build meta . Rant over.

Now lets get to my decisions and why you should choose certain items. Awilix being a burst jungler we are going to want good CDR good Pen and LOTS OF POWER.

What items should i choose you may ask?.

I find awilix is a kind of one trick pony if you aren't going some weird hybrid build. We are going to want our starters as discussed above now should i choose warrior Tabi or Ninja Tabi? Well we are going for power and pen so warrior for its power. Pretty basic choice since we don't need the attack speed too much.

Now as for after that we go into a choice of 3 items Jotunn's Wrath, The Crusher, or Brawlers Beat Stick. When and where should we choose these items? Well if we need anti heal stat for an enemy anubis or a few other gods that may be trouble some go for Brawlers Beat Stick. Now as for Jotunn's and Crusher Jotunn's comes with a solid amount of CDR and so were going to want that CDR if we go into protector of the jungle since it doesn't have CDR now as for if we want Bumbas Hammer then we should go Crusher since Bumbas comes with 10%CDR so we don't over cap with the rest of our build.

As for our next item it becomes simpler Transcendence or Arondight. personally this can come down two ways wanna change it up don't feel like stacking then go for Arondight it gives a nice buff to your ultimate and has solid stats along with it. Also if your behind then go for arondight so you get the power spike from it earlier. But Transcendence is the better item on awilix for raw power especially combined with bumbas mana pool it allows you to perform your combo with more damage.

As for our next item Hydras solid item all around. Great stats and an amazing passive after every ability your next basic attack that lands does increased damage. This is a core item it meshes well with awilix and it meshes well with bumbas.

As for our 6th slot item we can go a little more wild on choices. If your ahead and don't know what you might need or don't really need anything then go for Blood forge. We aren't really after the life steal but its an added bonus to its amazing passive and its raw power. Now if you need some CC immunity and or protections you can sub this slot for either Magi's Cloak or Mantle of discord. Does the enemy team have a lot of tanky gods that are built tanky? Build Titans Bane.

As for our last slot (selling boots for Elixir of speed). Is heart seeker solid item no real reason to swap it for something else it comes late it this build since its expensive.


Knockup = win.... okay not exactly majority of the time if you execute a combo right you will win. But not always awilix is amazing against squishes because she can burst them so fast. But it comes with a downside awilix is not good in a 1v2+ scenario. Yes you can win but majority of the time you wont. She is a solid assassin for a 1v1 scenario where she can freely burst someone with her kit.

As for ganking and your setup always try to come from behind or an unexpected place. So you can use your full combo on someone then get out. Or try to win a team fight if that erupts.

You can use your Moonlight charge through walls to knock up enemy's for your gravity surge.

As for things to lookout for is gods that have purification beads or a CC immune ultimate/Ability these will be hard counters to your Gravity surge.

Be very careful not to get caught out with Awilix. Since your Summon Suku being your only escape it can be tricky to get out of certain situations.
