How to use:

Hello everybody, my name is BestBotNA, but you can just call me SwagMaster69. I would like to present to you all my Guan Yu build known as "Cooler than Downs." I personally have received a lot of praise for this build, how well I've done with it, how it was perfectly crafted, and just overall how many games I've carried with this build. This build gives you above 100% cool-down as Guan Yu's abilities also give him cool-down reduction if used correctly. This build is best used on the MOTD "Cooldowns Runneth Over" or any MOTD that gives 80% and infinite mana as you'll be able to use abilities literally the entire time. This build is best used in the Mid Lane as your opponent cannot get close to you ever, or even out of tower, not even on the map as you can just Talos Assault and macro Conviction for infinite heals. No hate or disparaging comments will be tolerated, this is a serious build that took me a lot of time to make. I kept this build hidden so it wouldn't be abused in the SPL, Super Regionals, or Worlds, but I caved as my friend BestTopNA kept pestering me to post my masterpiece. Below will be some tips for using this art, I wish you all the best of luck.


To start you want to rush Greater Beads, this will allow you some early game cool-down on a relatively short timer, as well as allow you to get out of sticky situations the entire game. I personally start with Conviction and max it out first, using my auto's to clear the wave, but it is entirely up to you. Follow this up by Talos Assault and you win the game, it's that simple. Nobody can touch you, nobody can damage you, and you can just Spin-to-Win all game long, just set macro's up so you don't have to keep clicking the buttons as it may cause your hand to cramp. My personal favorite time with this build is in League: Joust, but I'll let you all experience that for yourselves. Best of luck with the build!
