Quick Background and Intro to Arachne

Arachne is a heavily AA based god that can practically pub stomp anyone platinum 3 and down if you’re struggling in the jungle to get out. A few tips for people who don’t know how to play her and how to encounter gods 1v1 in the jungle.

First off let’s discuss her abilities.

Her first ability or Venomous Bite has a 5 second timer to be used and when hit on an enemy or jungle buff deals a significant amount of damage with the initial hit and injects that target with venom causing tick damage every .5 seconds for 3 seconds in total. In addition to this, it provides a healing every .5 seconds for 3 seconds in total.

•Effects + leveling: Initial Damage: 50/75/100/125/150 (+35% of your physical power) Damage per Tick: 10/20/30/40/50 (+10% of your physical power) Healing per Tick: 10/20/30/40/50 (+10% of your physical power)

This is a very good ability if you want to box 1 on 1 one still come out with more health

This is where we come to the second ability or Cocoon. Arachne next 3 basic attacks are used in this ability which includes a 6 second attack speed buff, if all 3 basic attacks are landed on the same target that entity is wrapped in a “Cocoon” (stun) for the time listed below.

•Effects + leveling: Attack Speed: 30/40/50/60/70% Stun Duration: 1/1.1/1.2/1.3/1.4s

To combo with Arachne’s first ability that stun with help you win against any squishy without beads or cc immunity and if you’re far enough ahead even kill some guardians and warriors based upon their build.

Moving along to her third ability or Web, this spits out a web of 2 spiders which causes Arachne to be immune to slows and move faster in general on the web. If an enemy god or entity is hit or walks into such trap they are slowed by 25% and revealed to Arachne since little broodlings are consistently attacked to that entity unless killed. When put on the ground webs last 240 seconds.

•Effects + leveling: Slow Duration: 4/4.5/5/5.5/6s Movement Speed: 40% Broodling Damage: 20/30/40/50/60 per hit

This ability is great for initiating fights especially when an unexpected enemy is encountered.

Moving along to her last ability. This one is her ultimate ability or Night Crawler, you are lifted onto her “infinite web” suspended in the sky above everyone else. Her movement speed is increased and can leap off the web to deal damage to enemies in the target area, this also includes the same slow of her Web ability of 25%. You can activate her first ability and second ability inside of her ultimate.

•Effects and leveling: Damage: 150/250/350/450/550 (100% of your physical power) Duration on Web: 5s Movement Speed: 40% Radius: 15

This is good if you’re in a fight losing and your team of golds just happen to show up at the right time (speaking from experience) first you turn to flee but notice a wild Anubis running through the jungle to support you in your 1v5 adventures at the fire giant and you decide to go back in and when you do die instantly to a Scylla crush at the wrong time... (USE HER ULT AS AN ESCAPE)

Top 5 Arachne in the world for the past 3 splits, can consider myself a good player with the god :).

Tbh i ran out of any other clever things to say and if you made it this far I appreciate you for taking the time to read this monstrosity I typed while on the beach! Thank you everyone

Stay fragging! -Woobat

So you sort of want to look at the god's kit when determining the optimal build. Here are the main points I'll make about Arachne:
  • Power: power's always great for any damaging god. But besides 1:1 basic attack damage for physical gods, you also want to look at the abilities. She's only got 2 abilities that scale with damage... Venomous Bite and Night Crawler...only one non-ult ability. Yes, it's nice that the healing from Bite also scales, and the abilities that DO scale scale pretty well. But that's 2 abilities that get 0 direct effect from the power.

  • Arachne's basic attack chain is 0.5 / 1 / 1x. This is quite nice for more Qin's Sais procs. This means she not only can shred squishies, but she can be a nightmare for tanks also.

  • Although she has a strong AS steroid, it's not long enough to not build significant AS. It's only 3 hits. This, as opposed to someone like Artemis who has up to 5 seconds of her steroid (meaning with an AS of 2.0, for example, she gets 10 shots off), means she also needs to rely on her non-steroid attack.
As such, to me, you build at least some AS for her.

Why Silverbranch over ichaival?

Ichaival gives you no pen while silver branch gives you 10 pen, 30 power, and 35% attack speed, and the passive is more useful than ichaival due to qins over capping along with the silver branch itself. I've tested Ichaival in that spot, overall it doesn't give you its bang for its buck.

HMM, Ichaival gives you 75PWR while debuffing your enemies BA speed. You wont feel that benefit from testing. You also got enough PEN in ASI + Exec.

What about, The Crusher? Also why sell Stone Cutting when you can keep that in the build instead of Silverbranch?
