This is a build I have had lots of success within both conquest and other game modes such as clash.
Hera is a mage that deals most of her damage through Argus, the Defender. Hera on her own is strong as well but does lack a proper escape ability, which makes her quite vulnerable. However, Hera does have something else to defend herself that currently no other mages have aside from Isis. It is her ability to shield herself. The only flipslide is that Hera needs to use her shield Divine Shroud to make the most out of Argus, the Defender.
This build will make hera very hard to kill with an extra big shield from Book of the Dead on top of getting more survivability with the protections and shield from Hide of the Urchin. Every Item aside from Spear of Desolation will synergise with Book of Thoth and Book of the Dead. You will be able to 100-0 any squishy with this easily.
Book of Thoth This is the basis of your entire build. It will give you a huge amount of mana when fully stacked. It synergizes well with most of the items that you build later on due to its passive.
Shoes of Focus This item is pretty much essential when you build into Book of Thoth since these shoes will give you the most mana and give you a nice 10% CDR.
Hide of the Urchin Probably the item that raises most questions. Hide of the urchin is very underrated especially on mages that build into Book of Thoth. Due to the passive of Book of Thoth you won't be losing out on a lot of damage. Since this item gives you mana as well as health and a bunch of protections. When this item is evolved it also gives you a regenerating shield out of combat, which helps you with survivability.
Spear of Desolation This is one of the best damage boosts to your build. Many people don't know that Argus, the Defenderin most scenarios, will do MORE damage with a flat penetration item then a % penetration Item of the same power. This also goes for the damage through Divine Shroud. This will be the only penetration item you need in most scenarios and it is not to be underestimated. On top of its penetration, it also gives you a much needed 10% CDR and a passive that lowers your cooldowns with kills and assists.
Book of the Dead With this item the real fun begins :) with this you will be very hard to burst down while you can sit back and throw argus on someone, follow them even when the situation would normally be dangerous for Hera. It opens up a lot of room to make plays with Argus, the Defender. Trust me this item will be a lifesaver.
polynomnicon To finish up your build, this item will give Hera that extra OOMPH! Most people will not expect your basic attack to take away 1/3 of their hp after you Polymorph them or throw Argus, the Defender on them.
You can delete the enemy hunter with just your Argus, the Defender into Polymorph into a basic attack. This item also gives you a bit of life steal and mana.
