I remember watching Sonic X when I was 5 every Saturday. And then I came across Mercury. IceColdPappsi here to share with you my third guide. I recently took up Mercury after buying the Odyssey chest that featured skins from the past, and got RUN.EXE. These are just some builds I played with, and had a lot of fun with. Again, these guides are for people who are either taking up a god for the first time, or just want to have fun, hence the "For Dummies" part. On to the guide.
Mercury is a basic attack based assassin with a need for speed.
- Great Clear
- Long Range Ult
- Unique CC
- Great Team Setup
- One of the best Split Pushers
- Doesn't fit into a lot of team compositions
- Too squishy
- Late game/ takes a while to get online
- Not a lot of CC
- Fairly hard Combo
Mercury's kit may seem like a basic assassin's, but is on a whole other level.
Passive: Fastest God Alive
The more distance Mercury travels, the more powerful his next successful basic attack will be. Also, a percentage of his movement is turned into physical power. The first part of the passive also translates into his abilities.
With the removal of Golden Bow, Mercury players see him as useless trash, as he now has no more potential. These builds are here to fill that Golden Bow void in your heart. Just like my last guide, these builds are supposed to ignore the meta. The meta is for diamond players that are grand masters in conquest. I'm still in the qualifiers. These are just builds that I've had fun using, as the enemy never suspects them.
Build 1: Super Sanik
This build is all about speed. Hastened Fatalis gives that boost of speed that Mercury needs to be able to chase down opponents, because it makes you faster the more you punch people. Wind Demon gives him more movement speed after each crit, which again, turns into more power. If you are falling behind, you can switch Malice for Masamune Nowadays, it is such an underpicked item. Due to assassin's natural squishiness, it give them an advantage against more beefier gods. Deathbringer has to stay because it sometimes gives you a 1000+ crit. However, you can switch it for Poison Star if you are really far behind and need some more help killing opponents, because it has a nice built in CC that allows you to catch up to them if they're running, or to dish more damage in a 1v1.
Flash skin anyone?
In my opinion, Mercury has potential. You can't stop playing a god just because one item got removed. I don't like to include relics in my guides because every one has their preference. On that note, Sprint works well with Mercury's passive. If you have something, please let me know in your comment, but be nice. If you'd like to, peep out my last two guides on Ravana and Agni. Thank you for reading this far. Always remember that after every game, to take a break and drink a tall glass of IceColdPappsi.
