Notes Bakasura gains bonus attack speed from his passive Insatiable Hunger, and high attack speed numbers increase the amount of damage dealt by Butcher Blades. This is what makes Silverbranch Bow a good fit for Bakasura.

Crit Build

Notes In comparison to the Silverbranch Bow build, you will hit much harder with your auto attacks, especially in the 1v1. The downside is if the enemies build Spectral Armor your damage will be hurt, it depends on your use case and preference. If you like the crit style, go for it!

Optional Items

Notes These items would replace Atalanta's Bow in your build, and would be built 6th item (or sell Atalanta's Bow late game.

Spectral Armor is a good pickup if 2+ enemies have crit, as it makes you win almost every 1v1 against crit gods.

Mantle of Discord is a good pickup if you need more survivability, and helps you win the jungle 1v1.

Introduction

Hey, my name is AutoSpeed and I have been a Grandmaster + 3500 (MMR cap) in Conquest, Joust, and Duel in every recent season. I'm happy to share my knowledge of the game with everyone, and I appreciate any and all feedback!

Here are my channels:

Bakasura Basics

Bakasura's Abilities


Passive - Insatiable Hunger

Bakasura gains attack speed and movement speed upon killing enemies. This stacks up to 3 times.

Insatiable Hunger helps Bakasura travel around the map quickly, and is why he may seem fast randomly.


Ability 1 - Take Down

Bakasura leaps to a target location, dealing damage to all enemies while additionally increasing the damage % enemies will take.

Take Down is Bakasura's engage and disengage tool. Save it for when you need to run, or when you choose to fight.


Ability 2 - Eat Minion

Bakasura grabs a minion, instantly consuming it. He gains health, restores mana, gains protections, and reduces the cooldown of his abilities.

He gains a stack for his ultimate Regurgitate upon consumption. If used on a Large Jungle Monster, they must be below 33% health to be eaten. Large Jungle Camp monsters give 2 stacks for his ultimate Regurgitate.


Ability 3 - Butcher Blades

Bakasura passively gains physical power. Upon activation of this ability, his auto attacks deal additional true damage on hit.

Butcher Blades is your main damage ability, and will make you hit much harder than the opposition. Level this ability first in all scenarios.


Ultimate - Regurgitate

Bakasura regurgitates all of the minions consumed by Eat Minion which attack enemies and additionally create a puddle which slows and cripples enemies inside.

He becomes briefly CC immune, and his auto attacks become cone attacks which can cleave multiple gods at once.

Regurgitate is a powerful ability for winning your fights. With your Eat Minion stacks, you can hide behind your minions but still hit enemies with your auto attacks due to the extra range.

Butcher Blades should be used at all times with this ability, as it will massively increase your damage.


Ability Rotations:

Initiation:

Take Down > Butcher Blades > Auto Attacks

Ultimate:

Regurgitate > Butcher Blades > Auto Attacks

Tips:

Use Eat Minion to restore your health. You can eat the minions spawned by Regurgitate if you wish Insatiable Hunger is powerful, but difficult to keep uptime with before you fight.

Butcher Blades creates a large power difference between your auto attacks and the enemy auto attacks, which is why you scale well with attack speed items. The faster you hit, the more damage your Butcher Blades will give you.

It is difficult for you to fight outside of Regurgitate, as it is your AOE, CC, and the only ability you can use from a distance. Your gameplay is using Regurgitate whenever it is up, and playing passive until it is up again.

Jungle Tutorial

Early Game:
  • Star at the Fire Giant side Speed Buff (or Red Buff), and group up the jungle camps with your mid laner. Once the Red and Speed buff jungle camps are cleared together, head towards your remaining speed buff. Your mid laner should help you clear this buff camp. Finally, head towards the exp camp near the Tier 1 Mid tower, presume you will clear this alone.

  • You now have 2 choices. You can stay in the Jungle towards the mid lane, looking for a gank on the enemy mid laner or clear the Mid-Harpies. The second option is to head straight to duo lane, and look for a gank on the enemy duo lane (and clear Scorpion). Heading to Duo lane has a greater risk, but much greater reward if successful.

  • Bakasura has a passive early game, as your abilities are only for hitting minions, not gods. Use Eat Minion on the minions/jungle camps, and back up. Let the enemies pressure you now, you can fight them later when you have your ultimate Regurgitate and a few points in Butcher Blades

  • Focus on farming as much as you can until level 5, as your ganks are very poor without team assistance or your ultimate Regurgitate. Luckily, your passive Insatiable Hunger gives you powerful farming speed

  • Once you have hit level 5, and especially after you unlock your first item, begin with the priority of Buff Camps > Rotations > Harpies.

  • Your fights have become much better after points in Butcher Blades with Regurgitate, which causes your auto attacks to hit incredibly hard. You lack range and ability damage, so you are limited to your ultimate for fighting. Farm when it is down, and look to fight the second it is up.

Mid Game:
  • Begins around ~14 minutes, or when most people have hit Level 12 and unlocked their Second Relic. Most enemy teams have gotten around to warding by now, and team fights become increasingly common. Most builds have started to show effectiveness.

  • Bakasura only has one way of being relevant in the team fights - his ultimate Regurgitate. Make sure your use of it is as good as can be, and use Blink Rune to give yourself an opening. By rule of thumb, if 2 or more enemies are grouped together, it is a good Regurgitate use.

  • When your ultimate is down, play to counter diving enemies, as your fight is hindered without it. You could look to go farm which you do very well, but only do if the fight is already lost, as farm is not worth loosing an objective.

Late Game:
  • Almost everybody has hit Level 20, Fire Giant is the most important objective on the map. Starter items become unlocked at Level 20, which results in a damage/defensive spike. This means that everybody dies faster, and Team Fights are the most important thing.

  • During Fire Giant skirmishes, look for when the enemy mage and hunter are stacked together. If your solo laner goes in, use Blink Rune and Regurgitate to cleave the both of them. You have the ability to kill enemy carries through relics, but your only time of relevance is when Regurgitate is off cooldown.

  • When it comes to the siege fights, split push. You want to look for the 1v1 with the enemy jungler, and you can even cleave them and the Phoenix to kill two birds with one stone - if you are brave enough to do so.

  • Lightly push the minion wave, Use Eat Minion, and your archers will stop the enemy jungler's blink (or push them back). Use this opportunity to Blink Rune in. Sometimes, you don't win the 1v1, and instead your goal is to distract the enemy jungler.

  • It's completely fine to be patient, as you are still negating your counterpart (the enemy jungler). Minions from Regurgitate are capable of tanking the phoenix, so use this to your advantage.

Warding


Green = Early/Rotational wards, you don't go out of your way to place these wards. Place them while already in the area, they are used to prevent blind spots while you rotate. They also double as objective wards

Blue = Late game wards, you want to place them as high as possible without getting caught by the enemy doing so. They cut off chokepoints on the enemies side, which lets you know which side of the map they are on. Good wards for a Fire Giant fight

Final Advice

Bakasura is a power farmer character, who disappears when his ultimate is down but punches hard when it is up. His gameplay is very linear, as you will be looking to Regurgitate and bail after it is down. This is a playstyle many have come to love, and I hope this guide helped you with your journey of Bakasura jungle.

Should mention to sell Golden late for Serrated or Obow

Hey there, It's quite funny because I am one of the biggest advocates of not building Golden Blade even on characters such as Arachnae because of Golden Gooseberries. However Bakasura is the one exception to this rule.

When you attack with his ultimate, Golden Blade If you are hitting 2 or more enemies (late game), Golden Blade will cleave onto both targets, resulting in 150% auto attack damage on a singular target (instead of the normal 100%). This also stacks with Golden Gooseberries, meaning you can deal up to 200% damage during the early game when the enemy god is near another god, minion, or jungle camp. This super sneaky bonus damage is very important for Bakasura's early game fights, especially with 2 or more enemy gods.

While you still sell Golden Gooseberries for another item late game, I still recommend you keep Golden Blade for the 50% bonus reasons listed above

The thing is Golden Gooseberries stacks kinda slow in jungle unless the enemy is inting early, so its not really a great replacement to Golden on the Junglers that would normally go it.
