Build Summary

Beefy Boi (main support)

Notes TANK IT UP! Sentinel's standard tank start. Followed by gauntlet for health (start them stacks early). Pridwen and mantle for cooldown and the passives. Magus for a little damage and sustain and the passive aids in team fights. Sentinel's embrace is the best choice for upgrade. Spirit robe to cap CDR (this can be subbed).

Extended Build

Alternates for Beefy Boi build

Notes You can substitue spirit robe for Genji's or Shogun's if the other team has a lot of magical power (genji's is better for you and shogun's is better for your team). Witchblade is a great sub for spirit robe if the other team has a lot of physical power. Gaia can be substituted for Magus if you want to commit to the tank life and do no damage. A final idea is starting into a stone of binding as it is cheap then selling it late game for another item (similar to how we use to treat boots)

Offensive Beefy Boi

Notes I still like sentinel's here to tank. Build into pridwen for cooldown and protections. Winged blade offers some more beef and speed to run targets down. Magus for the offense. Breastplate for mana and cooldown. Finish with void to put power out with some tankyness.

Offensive Beefy Boi Alternates

Notes You could go more aggressive with your last build than void stone. I would reccomend these for pure offensive items. Divine ruin is a good offensive weapon offering some antiheal for the team too. Ethereal and Warlock's both give health in addition to the power. Could also build an ealy stone of binding for cheap power early then sell it late game for a better item.

Antiheal Boi

Notes A subtle change from my main tank build. Build pest over mantle then add breastplate to get your cooldown back. If you want you could build one of the previous 10% cooldown items over breastplate

Notes You could go sentinel's or benevolence if you want to be a little tankier here and consider building Ethereal or Warlock's over void stone. Bancroft's could also be subbed out for another offensive or defensive weapon if you choose. If you need to build antiheal here then sub bancroft's out for that.

CERB IS A GOODEST BOI

I really enjoy playing cerberus and decided to toss together some of my ideas for no boots builds for him with notes for each build. I think cerberus has a very high flexibility and deserves a comeback into the meta, so there is a lot of flexibility in order of items here and substitutions that could be made. A big move I am considering is building stone of binding 1st item then selling it late game for a better item, similar to how we use to treat boots. Enjoy and please let me know what you think and what items you enjoy building on the goodest boi cerb.

Cerb do be a good pupper. Im okay with your build, I would just make a couple changes to really make it feel good!

For your starter Sentinel's Embrace is okay, and I think it has a place on some gods, but right now Compassion is just so strong. Im fine with Gauntlet of Thebes into Pridwen but after that I would get Spear of the Magus you have so many prots so early with thebes-prid that your magus gets a lot of value 3rd. I would hold off on buying Mantle of Discord so early its a large money investment that doesnt have a great trade off that early. Spirit Robe would be okay early.

Compassion - Gauntlet of Thebes - Pridwen - Spear of the Magus - Spirit Robe - Mantle of Discord

that would be a fine order - you could also change up the build order a little more

Compassion - Gauntlet of Thebes - Spear of the Magus - Pridwen - Spirit Robe - Mantle of Discord

Spirit Robe is pretty situational here you can always swap this for a Spectral Armor Sovereignty Heartward Amulet depending on your match up!

You should also add the Cerb level order! Which is 1-2-4-3

You also dont have relics (unless im blind) good relics would be Sundering Spear Belt of Frenzy Blink Rune
