Introduction

Hi! I'm WolfWitch and this is my guide for Chang'e, the god that has been my main since mid 2018. Right now, I'd say Chang'e is the strongest mage solo laner, but it could be debateable with Zhong Kui existing. Futhermore, I'll give a brief explanation as to how you should react in lane and some useful information not everyone knows about her! So buckle in and come in this ride with me! xoxo

Laning

The main strength of this build is allowing you to be aggressive in the moment of the game Chang'e normally can't be aggressive: Early game.

By having Chalice of Healing and 5 Healing Potions, you're effectively allowing yourself a whopping 2000 health, plus the healing from Moonflower Dance, the healing from Warrior's Blessing and another burst heal from Meditation Cloak. The idea is to never leave the lane and fully rely on the Totem of Ku, Meditation Cloak and the Blue Buff for mana sustain, while the bunny does all the work!

By level two, you can send the bunny back to buy t1 boots, but you could wait 'till around level 4 or 5 to send the bunny back to buy the T2 item of the defense item you want, may it be Void Stone or Lotus Crown. You could get Celestial Legion Helm if you're facing an Achilles or an Sun Wukong, as they both can't lower all of your stacks without basic attacking you (and they weren't made for basic attacking, except maybe Achilles if you're really wild!).

You should use and abuse the sheer health that you're allowed to have with all the aforementioned items and abilities, and be really aggressive and really safe at the same time! If a gank from the enemy jungler comes around, make sure to use Waxing Moon just as they're both lined up (they will get somewhat behind each other most of the time, since you get a really nice escape with the double healing + dances) and keep dancing! If you can get back to your tower, they could try to dive you. The most effective way to survive a dive is to stay behind the tower, forcing them to go deep into the tower shots, and go around the small space that separates the tower from the wall, which not only makes the tower take the basic attack damage, as it also keeps them from effectively using movement abilities (unless, of course, they're using jumps).

Tips

Using Moonflower Dance into Crescent Moon Dance is more efficient and more effective than doing it backwards, since the animation from Moonflower Dance is faster than Crescent Moon Dance, increasing your DPS.

You can flick your screen to increase the distance Crescent Moon Dance goes, but know that it's not by much (but it's really good). Not only it works sideways but it also works if you move forward or backward!

You can charge in with both your 1 and your 3 and back off before the extra movement speed and backpedal immunity from the passive ends, which is really good for constant, annoying poke.

The most effective combo, using your ult, is Crescent Moon Dance into Moonflower Dance into Waxing Moon into Crescent Moon Dance. Most players will expect this progression of attacks, so I recommend you to do Moonflower Dance into Waxing Moon, skipping the first Crescent Moon Dance, allowing you to break the pattern and catch them unprepared.

If you go 40% cooldown, you can reliably use Spear of the Magus for the Crescent Moon Dance into Moonflower Dance into Crescent Moon Dance into Waxing Moon into Crescent Moon Dance combo, dealing major damage.

Conclusion

This was my quick guide to Chang'e! If you've liked it, please leave a like and a comment! Also, I'm open to talking about the build or any other suggestions or criticism you may have! If you're shy, feel free to DM me! Wolf out! xoxo

To my dear reviewers: Hi shortcakes! I've updated the guide, adding some of your suggested items, making some corrections (Mentioned the use of Meditation Cloak on the guide, and some other stuff) and added a Pridwen build I've been testing a bit! Any other feedback is appreciated! Lots of kisses for ya'llsies! xoxoxoxo

Hello WolfWitch! Not gonna lie, I normally just look over most guides, unless I see a reason as to why I should comment (mainly because Bran is always really accurate with his feedback and there's not a lot more to add), but you caught my eye with your hi's, so here I am to give you a hi! Welcome to Smitefire!

Now, a bit about your guide! I think you could make a better Anti-Heal example build. Way too much penetration for a solo laner, that Obsidian Shard could definetly be a mixed defense item or maybe even Pridwen? I've tried it once before and it does give you some more utility while using Waxing Moon to get away from enemies!

I really love what you did here, abandoning the monotomous way we old-timers do guides and doing something more... tongue-and-cheek, I guess! I do hope you continue to post and keep expanding the guide, adding more knowledge, and maybe even filling out your threats tab! <3

Hello chocolate pudding! Thank you so much for looking at my guide! My momma used to call people by sweets and such, so I just got this from her!

I do see your reasoning for swapping out Obsidian Shard in that example, sugar, but Pridwen? I'd have to test it, but I don't think it fits!

Thank you thank you thank yooooou sugar pie! People normally don't enjoy these sort of listings I do, so I'm extremely happy to know you like 'em!

Solid guide. Bran and Kreiga can say more than I ever could so I'm leaving the numbers and item builds to them, for me, I'll talk about the text and design of the guide.
While the wording could use some cleaning up and grammatical fixes, it's easy to understand and quick to read. Once you get more use to the site, you can implement some more complex BB-Coding to help organize and format your text into a more appealing style.
With that out of the way, welcome aboard.

Hi raspberry cake! I did get a bit anxious while writing this, I won't lie to ya! Some friends of mine motivated me, and also some challenged me to be real with you, but I will try to get those fixes as fast as possible!

I will look into applying some of this fancy BBCoding thing into this mess at some point, while also adding more things that I'll remember as I go!

Thank you for the welcome! I'm so glad ya'll are fun and easy-going! I was truly terrified that I wouldn't be as welcomed! So thank you again! xo

Hi WolfWitch

Nice first build/writeup! It's clear Chang'e is a god you're familiar with.

I have a few comments if you don't mind.
  • I personally feel that Mage's Blessing is likely going to be the better starter for her. She's got such a low base CD on Crescent Moon Dance that you can get good functional bonus damage out of Mage's. The CD at full stacks is also helpful, giving you a nice 20% base as long as you continue picking up your mana buff.

    If you're playing aggressively, you're going to be doing a lot of poking with Crescent, and so I also think you might be better off with some Mana Potions at the start, or at least Multi Potions. I don't know that I'd commit to Chalice of Healing at the start, but if that's your preference, that's your preference...and I do get your concept of wanting to stay out as long as possible. Perhaps you might consider not investing in the Chalice (as you're not planning on backing often, right?), and instead starting with choice of blessing + 5 Healing Potions and 3-5 Multi Potions?

  • Also, I know Meditation Cloak is also supporting your concept of staying out a long time (and I guess there's your source of mana in lieu of multi/mana potions). So...your setup works (but I still don't like having to invest in the Chalice). Have you experimented with other starts?

  • You identify 4 core items. I'm okay with 3 of them, but feel Obsidian Shard is more situational. In Solo, you're often counter-building more, and are not directly looked to as a primary damage source for your team. Chang'e is more of what I'd consider to be a utility mage. Some group heal function, a great teamfight ult, etc. So, while I wouldn't rule out a late Ob Shard (especially if you're ahead and bullying the enemy, I also don't consider it core.

  • Curious about your current opinion of Gem of Isolation. With the recent nerf, it feels like it'd be underwhelming for someone like Chang'e. Yes, she can apply the passive slow in a wide AOE, but the duration just sort of sucks now, and I personally only consider it on gods with tick/DoT damage, where it can be continually applied over a longer period.

  • You also list Stone of Binding, which I don't think is a good item for her. She doesn't have any CC outside of her ult, so I don't see how this works well for her.

  • I think Shield of Regrowth could be listed as a situational item. Rod of Asclepius could be listed as well. I know her healing isn't super strong, but she'll also appreciate the health and MS since she doesn't have a true mobility ability.

  • In Solo, I think you might get better use out of anti-heal with prots (e.g. Pest / Contagion, which you list) rather than Divine Ruin. I'd invest in Divine in Mid, possibly, but less so in Solo.

  • I like your tip on the option for Celestial Legion Helm. I do think overall that I would prefer Lotus, as that will translate well to later-game teamfights.

  • You state that Moonflower Dance -> Crescent Moon Dance is more efficient for DPS due to animation. However, I'd say it's only more efficient for quicker burst in just that combo. Otherwise, the low CD on Crescent means you'll get better actual DPS over time by starting Crescent.
Anyway, pretty solid overall, though like Foot/Kriega, I would probably build more prots / utility in general.

Chalice + pots is a good choice early if Chang’e is against high pressure picks in solo. Also Celestial is pointless on mages like Hel, Chang’e , Aphro when Lotus Crown exists.

WolfWitch (6) | July 31, 2019 5:10pm
Oh sugarpie! Celestial is good for an extra damage in the laning phase, and it gives you a bit more defenses, which I consider worth against gods that can't take out all of the stacks effectively! I'd pick it and sell it late game for Lotus Crown, but it's still a valid option!

WolfWitch (6) | July 31, 2019 4:06pm
Hello sugar bear!

Mage's Blessing is an option a lot of my friends use on Chang'e, but I prefer Warrior's Blessing as it gives you damage reduction, protections, and another sustain tool! If you want to play a more traditional mage path, then I don't see the problem in either building Mage's Blessing or Guardian's Blessing (The latter not really being necessary but I do know a gal that uses it).

The Chalice of Healing allows you to double heal with Health Potion at maximum efficiency, and it gives you some silver lining if you really need to back or, in the worst-case scenario, you die. You really won't need the extra mana regen from Multi Potion after getting blue buff and using your autos to hit the enemy at a distance (an advantage people tend to overlook in building Warrior's Blessing on ranged characters).

Oh jeez, thanks for the catch! I forgot to write as to why I use Meditation Cloak! I normally dislike the relic, but you can use it aggressively on Chang'e! You can use it to bait the enemy into tower diving you, or making him think you're safe since you're out of mana! It's more of a wild card relic, but I've found that it has a lot of application on a character that doesn't need to back!

Sugarpie, I added Obsidian Shard as a Principal Item because I consider needing penetration key to any mage, even if solo! Imagine if an Aphrodite didn't grab Spear of the Magus, which sort of role could she play beside being a healing machine? Obsidian Shard, or any other pen item for that matter, allows you to truly be able to poke! I do agree Chang'e is better for her utility, but why not add poke as a utility? If people ignore you, you kill the backline (If you know how to proceed), if they focus you, you have ways to delay them long enough for your team to deal damage. That's just how I think, however!

While before you could apply the slow for possibly 4 seconds (if you waited out two seconds from the first application, lowering your dps, which would make you only apply it for 3 seconds so you could maximize it), you can apply it now for 2 seconds, which is a second shorter then most case situations, and I personally don't mind it! Don't really build it nowadays, but I don't see a problem listing it!

Dearie, I misclicked! It was supposed to be Jade Emperor's Crown! But now you got me curious to a possible abuse of this item for a level 5 kill, I will have to try it!

I'm a personal advocate of not building Shield of Regrowth and Rod of Asclepius on Chang'e. I think she gets a lot more from building any other item (may it be defense or damage darling!) than Shield of Regrowth. Rod of Asclepius is just a personal problem, I don't see a reason to build this over Lotus Crown on any healer except maybe Aphrodite!

Well sugarpie, with Hunters invading mid again, I thought it was a nice option to point that Divine Ruin is an option!. Of course I do suggest getting the protections, but you do need to remember, darling, that Moonflower Dance applies a natural 50% Healing Reduction upon hitting an enemy. Coupled with Divine Ruin, that's 90%, effectively shutting down the enemy healing. Chang'e is a perfect user of this item, since she can spam Crescent Moon Dance constantly (Keeping the 40% throughout most of the fight) and applying the 90% to counter the healing, if you don't focus on healing yourself or your team with Moonflower Dance. Also, it's always nice to point out this item, since your mid could forget it (Some pumpkins just skip it 'cuz they forget to include it in their custom setting!). Thank you for the kind words on the Celestial Legion Helm, I do think it's quite an overlooked item!

The Moonflower Dance into Crescent Moon Dance combo is for early fighting, when you don't have CDR and Crescent Moon Dance is on a 6 second cooldown, 5.4 if you have blue buff!

Thank you so much for reading my guide, cupcake! I do hope I can bring some joy to people who need help, and I hope your community welcomes me as well as you have! xoxo

AHHH I wasn't thinking about each basic allowing for the Warrior's Blessing proc...but still, with a 10 second CD, it still seems a bit long.

Acknowledged on being able to basically double up on health regen by activating chalice and potions at the same time.

Acknowledged on Ob Shard, though still, as a full offensive item, it's really only worth against tanks. On squishy gods that don't build prots, you might be looking at the equivalent of around 10 flat pen, or even as low as 7. That makes it still pretty situational to me. I'm definitely not arguing your choice of Shoes of the Magi or Void Stone...I get those and agree with them. Just, and Chang'e isn't the standard Warrior Solo, but most tank solos don't usually get much in the way of pen...they might get Void Shield, maybe the occasional BBS or something, but you don't see most of them getting The Executioner or Titan's Bane, you know? That's where I'm basing my thought process. But I guess Chang'e can be looked to for potentially a bit more damage than them. I dunno. You're the Chang'e expert so I should probably defer to you.

Acknowledged on Asclep. I still think it can be functional, but it's limited to a degree because her healing isn't all that strong. Same for Regrowth, though I will say, as a lot of the pros do, MS is OP. Once she has 20% CDR she can proc it every use of Moonflower.

And yes, I don't forget about Moonflower providing the 50% anti-heal debuff. 90% with the added Divine is pretty crazy, but just like all the other offense-only items, I feel more prots might be the better option. 50% anti-heal is quite strong as-is, and adding 25% more from Pest/Contagion...well, 75% should be plenty in almost all cases, though of course you have to stick close with those to keep the effect up.

Thanks for the responses! I do think it's good to keep options open, so providing a large amount of item options allows for the flexibility needed to adapt to a given situation. Hope you continue to update and write more here!

Hi Wolf! Welcome to the site.

Personally I don't like too much damage on Chang'e, but i guess i'm fine with Void Stone and Lotus Crown. Your guide seems simple and consistent to me, just how i like it!

Hello cupcake! Thank you for the kind words!

Personally, I do enjoy a little more damage early on, so you can be aggressive, hence why I opt into Void Stone and Lotus Crown. However, I do list a lot of other options for you to try out! Remember, at the end of the day, Smite's just another game. Mess around with builds, have fun, and keep on your smile! xo

Thats because you're not meant to build that much damage on her. Especially for Solo lane.

If you go damage on her you should at least go like, Warlock's Staff or something so you don't get blown up instantly in fights.

Hello pumpkin! I personally don't have issues in teamfights, damage wise, using this build! When I do face teams that seem to prioritize singling me out from the fight, I do rush other items before Ethereal Staff and maybe even Chronos' Pendant! As I've said above, I do list more item options you can try out, and I could provide a tankier build path if you think it's necessary!

Also, I'd love to hear your feedback on what do you think is a better build for her on solo! xo
