Hello and welcome to my first god guide. I have recently decided to play Freya and I was relatively good with her. So I made a guide. Enjoy.
Shoes of the Focus - A standard item for magic gods, but with the little cool down reduction, Freya can utilize her abilities to their full potential.
Demonic Grip - This item is literally made for Freya or Chronos,since they rely so much on the attack speed, which this item provides, while also giving a magical damage bonus.
Gem of Isolation - My favorite item on any mage,for it's passive. After you get this item you can just see people melting in front of you, and there is no escape, because the slow from Pulse along with the 25% slow from Gem of Isolation makes it nearly impossible to avoid Freya.
Fatalis - I know, some of you might hate it, it wasn't my favorite item either, until I tested it out. Since Freya's Irradiate and Pulse apply a time, not an attack number limit to the skills, the more shots you can release during that duration, the better. Fatalis and Demonic Grip give her that opportunity, as well of watching her back while running away when the whole team is dead and there isn't anyone to help you.
Rod of Tahuti - Is there really anything to add? If you want to deal magic damage, this is a must have item for any god.
Voidstone - Usually used to provide that extra little defense you need to survive ganks from mages.
Wall of Absolution - If you are farmed well enough, you have to carry the game, in that case, you'll need this extra physical protection to resist enemy gods (like Loki), survive the jungler trying to gank you and to stay alive when doing objectives.
Spear of the Magus - It reduces the enemy's magical defense if he is hit by your damaging abilities, so every attack you land, gives progressively higher damage, while, with Gem of Isolation your enemies do not have an escape.
Bancroft's Talon - Gives a nice magical boost, but also makes you even more lethal. If the enemy tries to kill you, the passive grants you a chance to kill the enemy first.
Meditation - In my opinion, Freya has to have this item, because she relies on her Irradiate and Pulse to deal damage.
Purification Beads and Aegis Amulet are items for protection, I suggest to have either one, if the enemy has a Neith, Loki or Freya, you might feel more comfortable with Aegis, while Beads have a shorter cooldown, letting you avoid Ares' ultimate.
Passive - Brisingamen's Blessing - Let's Freya build magical damage and still be a great threat to anyone who lacks physical defense.
Irradiate (1) - Makes Freya's basic attacks deal additional magical damage, as well as giving Freya lifesteal. Gives a little more sustain early on.
Pulse (2) - Makes Freya's basic attacks ranged, adding an additional magical damage bonus, dealing damage in a small area and slowing enemies hit. Good for clearing minions, jungle camps, etc.
Banish (3) - Lifts enemies in the area in the air. Great escape.
Valkyrie's Discretion (4) - Launches Freya into the air, making her immune to new damage sources, ONLY TO NEW SOURCES, e.g., if you have a DoT on you, it will still hurt you, also giving Freya 4 shots of magical AoE damage. Great escape, awesome for securing kills.
Freya is an assassin. She is not a mage, for she cannot clear minion waves very fast, at least at lower levels, but if she chooses a target, it will die. No special skill is required, but you must remember to use her Irradiate and Pulse together, to deal huge damage. However, do not use that combination against creeps and jungle camps, for it cancels out the AoE effect of Pulse, and that is why jungle camps and minions cannot be killed all together.
During early game, just try to get the farm needed and poke the enemies with her Pulse. Be careful for ganks, but you can also gank as well, for you are really strong compared to others during early game.
During mid game, get Gem of Isolation and Fatalis as fast as you can, for then you can just go around the map and melt everything or anyone. Your Pulse and Irradiate become a laser, due to your attack speed and while Gem of Isolation slows, the target is basically stuck.
During late game, you can easily help defeat the objectives, for your damage by then is huge. Your team can easily take the minotaur with your help.
Pros: Huge damage;
Ultimate is a very good escape;
Quite strong early game;
Banish gives the enemy no escape.
Gets focused for the threat;
Has no low cooldown escape.
1. Gank as much as possible.
2. Save your teammates with Banish.
3. DO NOT banish enemies if they're targeted by a tower or someone uses an ultimate on them.
4. Slow enemies with Pulse and Gem of Isolation.
5. Help clear the objectives with your high damage output.
Thank you for reading and enjoy playing Freya! Goodbye!
