Introduction

I'm a Cupid/Hou Yi main who tends to play more Cupid than Hou Yi in ranked, and I peaked as the #14 cupid in ranked Joust. Cupid is pretty simple, and is often overlooked, but if you play smart he can really throw the enemy off guard, and he snowballs pretty hard. He has solid sustain with his 2, and he has great team-fight presence with his ult. His mobility is decent, and his 1 is okay for wave clear and duels.

Pros and Cons

Pros:
Insane snowballing
Good sustain
Okay wave clear
Good escape
Amazing team-fight + duel
Great skins lol

Cons:
Weak before 5
Hard to come from behind with

Skills

Cupid's skills are very straightforward, but that does not mean they are worthless.

His passive builds stacks by attacking minions and enemy gods, and when at max stacks, his 1 will stun, and his ult mesmerize will last longer.

Cupid's 1 (Heart Bomb) is his main skill used for clear and dueling. It leaves a bomb that detonates, dealing damage on explosion, and stunning if your passive is active.

Your 2 drops hearts that heal you or allies, and your mana is restored if picked up by an ally.

The third ability is a dash, pretty self explanatory.

Cupid's ultimate lays down a crippling field that mesmerizes once it detonates.

With a lot of efforts I could understand what you meant with these builds. However you could just list full examples builds and below them the start items, situationals, etc...

Don't forget to hit the publish button to publish your guide after the changes, else we can't see it.

I would also like to comment that I disagree with a lot of threats you listed. Anhur and Skadi a lower threat than neith? Why?

@Mysterionz. I was under the impression Transcendence was built with Heartseeker on Cupid to get the most out of his 1?

Does the rest of the build look ok to you?

xmysterionz (65) | January 7, 2020 4:14am
If you want to avoid stack (Non-conquest modes), the builds are kinda ok, however I do think if you are going to build crits on cupid you should nuy Fail-Not and not death + stars.

The anti-tank build lacks something really important: Attack Speed. If you are aiming to kill tanks, it's only possible via basic attacks so he should increase his AS on that build to proc more Qins.

Crit can kill tanks too. Qins builds are better for more teamfight damage (titan's bane and O-Bow procs), and against Nemian, and against attack-speed reduction items. They're also cheaper.

But thinking crit can't deal good damage to tanks just isn't right (outside of Nemian and Thorns).

Should just change this to "Everything and the kitchen sink build".

Fair point! Fixed it

While it's great that you listed options, there comes a point where there are too many of them. Your readers are better served if you offer up a full build (or three) along with alternatives with a quick explanation as to why you recommend those items. That way your guide is cleaner and easier to read and follow.

Your item organization needs to be fixed. A build can only have 6 items.

Thanks for making the change.

This is up to you, but consider listing situationals. Also, separate the start from the completed build, it'll look cleaner.
