Guan Yu is a magical "Tank". He also happens to be one of the best magical damage dealers in the game, while not being too squishy. You will have little ability to burn down tanks, but you can easily burn down gods like Loki, Apollo, and Artemis. For a reason i can not comprehend, Guan Yu is not often played. I'm Here to change that,
Basically, the only build that really needs explanation is the damage/physical tank one. The pure magic and defense ones are pretty self explanatory.
In the damage/tank build, it relies heavily on magical power. However, you`ll see that at the end is the new item "Transcendence". By the that time you should have your BoT fully stacked, and have breastplate of valor. So you have a lot of mana. This item can give you A LOT of physical power, sometimes as much as 90. This will give you some punch with your basic attack over the knockout power of Rod of Tahiti. Of course, you could always swap Ethereal for Tahiti for more magic power.
Guan Yu has an amazing skill set. If you are going for a more support, max your 1 first. Your one is one of the best healing skills. If you are going for a damage or tank build, max your 2 first, this will give you a good engagement technique as well as an amazing Kill Steal abilitie:) Next your 3 will give you great damage. A great combo is to initiate with your 2, pop your ultimate, and then finish with your 3.
Great damage potential.
Great tankiness potential.
great support potential.
A decent escape
If built wrong can do neither damage or be tanky.
Long C/D on your escapes
...i can`t think of any others.
