This'll be my first guide, devoted to my favourite god, Guan Yu. Do note, however, that the build described here revolves around gametypes like Assault and Arena. I have honestly no idea if it's any viable in Conquest.
Please don't hesitate to give me your opinions. The only thing I ask is to do it constructively.
Conviction: I tend to level this as a last resort. In Arena-type matches, get this ability at level 4, considering you'll want to take out the buffcamps as soon as possible, meaning you're better off leveling a damaging ability twice at level 3.
I would advise not to use this skill unless there is an ally around (for the 2 second cooldown reduction), or if you absolutely must use it to save yourself. Wasting your last bit of mana just to heal yourself will eliminate all other options, and we all know that kill hungry people will try to take advantage of that.
Ninja Tabi: You will start off with boots at the beginning of the match, and getting the cooldown reduction early in the game will save you or secure kills easier.
Jotunn's Wrath: This will quickly maximise your CDR, and provide you with mana and physical penetration. Keep in mind that if you buy this as a second item you will be considerably squishy, but considering your pressure quick juking/escaping abilities I like to take the risk.
Frostbound Amulet: Now this is an item I haven't seen on any Guan Yu build before, and I honestly wonder why. It will help you keep people in range of your Cavalry Charge, make sure people don't outrun your Taolu Assault and the extra health will provide you with that bit of survivability you will need near mid and lategame.
Focused Voidblade/ Runic Shield: Depending on who annoys you the most, get either of these items first for additional protections. Instead of a Focused Voidblade, if you want to support your fellow physical gods, a regular Voidblade isn't bad either.
Soul Eater: Honestly the last item is something you can choose for yourself, but I choose Soul Eater for the occasional lifesteal and especially the health. The lifesteal isn't really all that important because you'll rely more on your skills than basic attacks, but it may very well save your life in certain situations.
