I've been messing with Guan Yu builds for a little while now and by far this is the most fun to play for me.

It works so well because early game you're kicking off with reduced CD, by mid game your CD will be the lowest it can be allowing for heals to be cast every 7 seconds, you'll have enough mana to keep up with them too by your breastplate and Jotunn's.

Late game when we bring in Shifter's and our hammer we start to really see the physical power go up, which was increased by Warrior Tabi and Jorunn's again in early/mid game.

Guan Yu's 3 hits for x damage plus an additional 20% of your physical power, so building that is key. If you put this build together in your god menu, look at the increase of physical power when Transcendence is added on... It's wild!

By late game you will be sustaining for you and your team like a pro and hitting as hard as you should be for a warrior. Health maxes at 2450 which isn't too bad (could be higher), but you'll be fine considering the protections you've got with Shifter's and your heals.

Transcendence is optional as we will have a pretty good amount of mana without it, I just put it there because it does have one of the highest physical power increases since it goes off maximum mana, also more mana never hurts.

Hope you all enjoy!


- Max CDR Early/Mid
- High Sustain
- High Physical Power
- Moderate Protections

- Not as much health is some Warriors would like
- Not much utility
- Must keep up with heals after CD


The two primary skills I focus on here are his 3 first, then his 1. The reason I level my 3 first is because the heals are decent as is combined with his passive which increases them based on how much you're in the fight, plus our CDR is going to be max by mid game so the heals will come quickly. After your 3 is maxed, work on your 1, then alternate between your 2 and ultimate. The dash does do damage and is quite fun to use with your 3 mid/late game.

Solid build overall, although I'd suggest getting Transcendence earlier, maybe as 2nd/3rd item (depends on how the game goes though), and in all honesty it isn't that much of an "optional" item when aiming for decent amounts of power, not to mention the ability to stay in battle for as long as it'll be needed it gives- with this build it provides 104 power thanks to mana bonuses from other items.

Only thing I'd recommend for sure, would be getting a dedicated magical defence item, preferably a Bulwark of Hope, as the mages will hurt (without it Guan Yu goes boom after a Crush + I'm a Monster combo), and the absorb shield is a great addition to overall survivability as well; I'd say the best option would be to replace Frostbound Hammer with it- it's not like anyone will escape Guan Yu with the slows from his dash and ultimate.

Thank you for reading and taking the time to type up a response! Awesome information provided. The Transcendence at the end was more for the physical power buff rather the stacks for mana, since our mana is already pretty high by late game. But it definitely would not hurt to pick it up sooner and get the expensive buy over with. And great suggestion on the Bulwark, I always forget that the dash provides a little slow down as well. Definitely going to make that change in the build!
