This guide has not yet been updated for the current season. Please keep this in mind while reading. You can see the most recently updated guides on the browse guides page
this guide is under construction. I will update it from time to time. Just starting with my sololane build, gonna add Jungle and Support later.
I am 200+wins Guan player and enjoy playing him again with the new patch.
My build is focused on cdr. Guan Yu's main damage output is Taolu Assault and Cavalry Charge, so you want to use it as often as you can. Conviction (and Warrior's Will) helps you do reduce cooldowns as well. so spam Conviction whenever there are teammates next to you.
Guan is very mana hungry thats why Transcendence is a key item in this build, it help you to push your damage and gives you enough mana.
Each game is different so there is no default build which will work everytime, just try to use offensive items when you can, if you have trouble to sustain build defensive items first, Hide of the Urchin is often the best choice.
detailed discription will follow
- Increased healing
Hints: The passive is just useful to double your healing to up to 340 hp. Usually you dont die often as Guan because of his escape skills. So the passive should be always up.
- Group heal
- Reduce Cooldowns
Hints: The cooldown reduction stacks when multiple gods healed. It also works when your ally has full health.
- Executing / Finishing an enemy
- Reduce Cooldowns
- Charge through the enemy to bodyblock him
- CC immune
Hints: This skill is useful in a lot of situations. It help's you to escape and to chase enemys. When chasing an enemy try to hit him with the skill, not just to get closer to him. If you charge through your enemy he is slowed and you can bodyblock him while your team arrives.
The skill also gives you some cc reduction, for example, if you face hercules or tyr on solo lane and you expect them to hit you with their charge ability ypu can use Warrior's Will to avoid their cc.
- Main damage output
- Stealing protection helping your team doing more damage
- Gives yourself protection, can be used on escape when running backwards
- Waveclear skill
Hints: It's your main damage output and also gives penetration for you and your team. Using it before your ultimate, will give your ultimate penetration.
Be aware that this skill can be interrupted. Specially Hercules and Hades can be annoying.
- Group stun and slow
- High damage
- CC immune
Hints: Each hit done with Cavalry Charge does more damage, so try to hit as often as you can. But on higher skill level a lot of players know exactly when the ultimate ends and use their escape skill (f.e. Anhur or Neith). Therefore unmount a bit earlier against these gods. When your movement speed is too high while Cavalry Charge you can reduce it by holding the Arrow Down key.
In lategame groupfights use this skill to initiate the fight. Be aware that your damage is not that important anymore so try to get as many opponents slowed and stunned as possible. Your carries are then able to land their skillshots on the multiple stunned targets.
This skill is also your personal Purification Beads. You are CC imune while Cavalry Charge, use it to counter f.e. Ares, Cupid and Artemis ultimates.
Don't worry using this skill to escape, specially in late game when you have Cavalry Charge ready each 30 sec.
This is your direct counter, if you face chang'e you have to play very defensive. Just fight at your tower and let him get greedy. You only have a few chances killing him, one is directly at level 5 when your ulti is ready, other chances art when your jungler is ganking. If you can afford it buy a sentry ward to destroy his ward to help your jungler ganking your lane. After Transcendence go for Hide of the Urchin, Pestilence or Ancile.
