Simplistic build description.

how this build works is based on mostly your mana and health to let you save your team.
YOU ARE THE SUPPORT SAVE YOUR DUMB TEAM THAT IS YOUR JOB! if you don't like that dont play supp.

you have alot of magic power to give you team big heals qith your god 1 if you land it on 3+ people

book of the dead gives you a giant shield so you can stay in the fight eat damage and rip into the enemy team to debuff everyone.

bulwark is a really nice team wide shield and time that with a upgraded magic shell you should be saving even the squishiest of your team and you can always follow it up with your meditation cloak.

and mantle of discord triggers at the same time as your Bulwark so you dont really have to pop your magic shell if you get a big stun off and pop it as soon as your stun from it wears off.

How to start the snow ball. once you hit 3 i do the same thing every time as long as you can bait out the enemy cc you do the following combo at lvl 3.

Bear 3, Bear 2, Human 3, human 1, human 2, bear 1 and just keep swipping at them after that to stack your debuffs. you should ether get them to blow alot if not all of their relics & potion or if you have a adc who actually follows up a easy kill. the combo takes 3.3 sec to do total from the moment you pop your bear 2.

Very strange seeing a "support" build with Book of Thoth and Book of the Dead.

Well here's probably the reason for Book of Thoth: "you have alot of magic power to give you team big heals qith your god 1 if you land it on 3+ people"

That is some seriously situational stuff, and the scaling on the heal is only 25%. Not good reasoning, and an awful choice (no offense) to get on a support.

And seriously no hint of counter-building to actually help your team. I could never, ever suggest this build for any support.

While Artio is a bruiser, this is still a bad build. I'd go with something like this instead: Guardian's Blessing, Healing Potion, Mana Potion, Magic Shell.

Full build would be: Shoes of Focus, Sovereignty, Void Stone, Gauntlet of Thebes, situational items like Pestilence, Shogun's Kusari, and Midgardian Mail.
