"This place is...primitive"

This build is the best I could come up with, the joust/arena build is actually not bad at all, crit damage ranged from 500-700 depending on the protections the enemy has, usually 400 crit will be the usual. As the joust/arena build will get you kills.

The conquest build is basically the same as the joust build, hell I literally use the same joust build for everything, but if the enemy team is doing their work on your team the situational items may help you.

The skills will be added as well as new threats. If you have a skill line or threats please comment on this build, I will read all suggestions.

Note:
The first 3 items are the core items that you need to build, wind demon is an exception because it gives early crit damage and you can switch it with any other item stated in the build.

HOW TO BUILD:
The way I start is something everyone should know how to start a build, with a starter. Attackers blessing is of course for joust and arena, then hunters blessing for conquest, or what ever you want to do I don't judge on a starter. Then you buy the tier 1 item of transcendence, then buy any potion/ward if you want to spend the rest of the gold you have. After that I would of course upgrade transcendence first unless you need to grab worrior/ninja tabi to get extra damage before transcendence. After that you need to buy wind demon to get that early crit damage, unless you need penetration but wind demon is the way to go. After wind demon you go executioner to get more damage(obviously) then you get bloodforge to get lifesteal so that you don't die automatically by some over powered character. After that sell your starter to get deathbringer and you are finished!

If you need situational items like more penetration, then sell wind demon and/or deathbringer(again obviously)

And that is the entire build! I have been using this build for months and it never fails me, yeah I do loose some games but I still get a decent amount of player damage.

SKILL SEQUENCE:
The skill sequence is created to have maximum damage with cursed crystals in the early game as you can detonate the crystal with the second ability. And example of this is when I was fighting a Ne Zha and I took half of his health with that combo. The third ability doesn't need alot of attention until the other team starts to get their damage up, once that happens you will be able to escape alot of situations.

The dangers:
Alot of gods are dangerous to chernobog, but the worst ones are Arachne, Anubis, and Bacchus, there may be more but I always find a way to kill gods. As I said in the threat tab, they will kill you, unless you get the upper hand on them in the beggining of the game.

BACKSTORY:
This build branched off of another build I saw during one game over half a year ago, I started using that build and thought it needed a little more spice, and low and behold came this build, I got chernobog from mastery level 1 to level 10 within three days and have not stopped playing him, this build got me into playing chernobog alot more than I expected, and you dont usually see chernobog mains going around do you? Well you might see me and you might think "nah this guy wont kill us, it's chernobog, he sucks!" Well you better watch what you say because I am coming for you and your entire team... nah I'm just joking, I do get outplayed by people lots of times but I still come back from it. I hope you enjoy this build, I know I sure did!

If you guys want this build to change, I'll have this thread here as a note, but I will not be changing this build since it is my main carry build that works great, but a full guide will come having a carry/mid guide. That one will be my second big in-depth guide.

New thread:
Are there any items that have their flaws with the build? As I have tested before this build can deal over 120 critical damage to 300 protection Odin as for every other God, no matter the protection, they can be killed within 10 hits in most cases.

As for all of the suggestions, thank you! I am still replying to everything people tell me so go right on ahead and see if I need anything else in this build.

"Situational build #4 " - Qins with crit.

"Situational build 2 " - no lifesteal in a crit build, triple crit with trans. Take out wind demon and put asi/bloodforge instead.

I will stick my head out here and admit, Luka, that I am one of the ones that have downvoted this build, at least at this time. I don't agree with the build order for the majority of your examples...don't like BF being prioritized in Joust/Arena over finishing your 2nd crit item (which in most cases should be DB), given the fact there are 2 items between your first and second crits. Don't like that Wind Demon is before Rage in some builds, or that Asi is 2nd item between WD and DB.

If you want explanations, Rage can be helped with earlier stacking. When you build into Rage, you try to get it earlier for said stacking. I even laid out a ton of builds in my theory-crafting post as examples.

I also don't really like your skill leveling. I feel at the very least, Vicious Barrage should be prioritized over your ult. The attack speed and duration is WAY more valuable in a teamfight mode, IMO.

Lukatomic (3) | April 1, 2019 12:55pm
I am taking alot if your build advice right now because I played some conquest games and had some flaws(mostly because of unhelpful teammates) but I also was dying alot. I had almost tied K/D as the deaths were over 10 and my kills were about the same. So I am going to make some changes as rage will be helpful as well as asi in the next update.
1
Kriega1 (126) | April 1, 2019 12:59pm
Deaths aren't just due to ineffective building, there may be other reasons as well. You should test your builds dps against high and low protections targets at full build, and per item in the early to lategame so see how the build progresses.

As for the skill level, I'll see what I can do to fix that asap

Lukatomic (3) | March 29, 2019 8:15am
Thank you for the suggestion! In my defence, I have NOT used rage for chernobog in a long time and I know how valuable the item is for chernobog, but this build really works in most of my cases. I will switch the rage and wind demon to get the early stacks.

Kriega1 (126) | March 21, 2019 5:37pm
Looks like you still need assistance fixing the builds.

Lukatomic (3) | March 21, 2019 10:59pm
These builds were made as predictions, they have not been tested yet as I have school and such during the weekdays, but I will be sure to test every build and redesign them to get the perfect chernobog carry.

I feel Rage should be an option, and it works very well as a 2-crit set with Deathbringer, providing the highest crit chance in 2 items of any combo. Poisoned Star should probably also be an option, even if you don't pick it up often.

Also not sure if I personally would consider Frostbound Hammer or Witchblade as typical options. Or Blackthorn Hammer. Or Ancile. Or Odysseus' Bow or Asi (0 power) in what are all provided as examples of crit builds.

And where is Titan's Bane as an option against tanky comps?

And why does the situational build at the bottom only have 1 crit item? Crit builds, with mathematical considerations, should strive for, at bare minimum, 40-50% crit chance for optimal DPS.

Lukatomic (3) | March 16, 2019 3:27pm
Thanks for the suggestion! My goal is to make the players satisfied with my build, I will fix the optional items right away, as for ody bow, that is a lane clearing item and can be replaced by something else.

Branmuffin17 (358) | March 16, 2019 3:45pm
As an FYI, here's my opinion on the function of Odysseus' Bow.
  • Crit builds are not optimal with O-Bow. Crits are multipliers on base damage, and that increases by power. O-Bow has 0 power, so in crit builds, you typically want to avoid these types of items (I'd also mentioned Asi as well, as it also has 0 power).

  • O-Bow is NOT a clearing item. It's not usually best to purchase early, though I guess you can get away with it in some early instances. Usually, O-Bow is built late, when you have plenty of wave-clear potential in either abilities or just very powerful basics. Early in a game, you usually want more power than AS. Why? I posted about that here.

  • Why is O-Bow built late? 1: It's great to get your base AS up when you go with Qin's Sais-based builds (rather than crit builds). Qin's wants high AS to get more procs of the passive. 2: It's used for additional teamfight damage, where you hope that the chain lightning can hit multiple enemies either grouped up or possibly protecting an objective.

O-bow shouldn't be prioritsed as a lane clearing item. That isn't it's main benefit.

Asi could go in a rage/deathbringer crit build as long as you sell it for bloodforge lategame I feel. e.g. Trans, warrior, asi, rage, exectuioner, deathbringer, sell asi for bloodforge. But that's an off-meta build.

Gulfwulf (81) | March 16, 2019 2:13pm
You can't buy either Hastened Katana or Masamune on hunters. Remove those items and we can discuss the builds or don't and let the build be archived.

Lukatomic (3) | March 16, 2019 2:23pm
Thank you for telling me! Like I said I dont use the situational items and I did make this build before I went to bed so I wasn't playing the game at the time, if you have any suggestions, please feel free to tell me!
