Fafnir Lord of Glittering Gold

Fafnir is a god that can be played into almost every comp, however he truly shines when there is more than 1 AA centric god on his team. Fafnirs second ability Coerce lets him increase the damage his teammates do with Autos. This makes for very easy plays around Gold Fury, and Fire Giant. You make your team able to burn these objectives sooner than they would normally be able to. Along with your 2, your 1 Cursed Strength is a Hammer toss that passes through minions and stopping on the first enemy god hit stunning them in place. This is great set up for your teammates if they are around to follow up off this. Your third ability Underhanded Tactics is a leap, this ability does come with a hefty cooldown, but it does provide some very good out play potential when fighting. When you land on the enemy you will cause them to be disarmed and not able to auto attack for a short period of time. This gives your team time to set up and cc the target for free. Your ultimate Dragonic Corruption is basically a super boosted version of all your abilities. Your auto attacks become a breath attack, your 1 is still a stun, your 2 is a larger AoE that lets you hit your entire team, and your 3 is now a cone stun when you land on enemies. Fafnir is not without his own faults though. Fafnir does come with long cooldowns for each ability, and when he is retransforming from Dragon to Dwarf he is stuck in place free to be targeted by the enemy. Do your best to make sure you watch your cooldown on the ult so you are in a safe place when going back to dwarf form.

You might want to correct the skills leveling. Ultimate is not suppose to level that way.

What way is it supposed to be? Lol all gods can be leveled any way, in fact the whole purpose of the game is to play how you wish to play and make your own unique build that crushes people who use these minute cookie cutter builds. So yeah anyways depending on the build each person levels a character differently although their is 3 main styles of leveling that most people use one of those 3 typically but you don't have to.

As Kriega indicated below, the suggested skill leveling is accurate; there's specific rhyme & reason to this.

First (highest priority) is his 1, as it is his main damage ability, and increases CC duration and lowers CD per level. Due to these, it takes priority over the ult, thus being maxed at 9 instead of leveling the ult at 9.

Second priority is his 2 (also takes priority over the ult), due to the increasing attack speed buff, % bonus damage, and self heal (though that's a minor point).

His 3, unlike his 1 and 2, only increases in damage, so at this point, it's got lowest priority...at this point, you level the ult whenever possible, and just level the 3 when you have no other option.

The levelling order for Fafnir here is already correct.

Is the new bracer of radiance viable for support?

AmoralOne (8) | July 27, 2021 9:45am
Simply - No its just not as good as any of the other options we have! blink - sunder - frenzy - even phantom without needing it for walls is still a really good relic with the damage miti on it!

Also it uses one of your active ward slots which sucks

Why does the standerd build say to have compation but guide say to have sentenel?

Back when the season first started Sentinels was the meta item! I just forgot to change the wording down there. Good catch!

Does stone of binding work on fafnir? Like I'm only silver 5, so this doesn't meann much, but I won rank games with Fafnir stone of binding. Obviously I'm not saying if it's actually good or not, but is it actually good on him, or do I only do good with it because I'm in silver 5?

Binding is a good item, and if you want to build it you totally can!

I recommend adding Pythagorem's Piece & Relic Dagger as Situational items
