How To Horus

Horus has a ton of early kill potential coming into duo lane. Using his Fracture to stun, and reduce their early protections, and then using your Updraft to apply damage, and cc to them is a fantastic way to get them to burn multiple pots, and actives. You do have to be careful with Horus early because you will eat a lot of minion poke when you are fighting the enemy, but you usually get the better end of the deal.

Mid game Horus is going to provide a lot of pressure because of his ability to cc combo any character, and almost always guarantee death for them. Horus does have the issue of having to full commit on each target as once his abilities are on cooldown you will need to do your best not get poked out to much if the enemy did not die. This is where your 3rd ability Protector's Surge comes into play best. If you combo an enemy and they do not die, you can use this ability to reposition yourself to avoid getting killed by the enemy.

Late game you are going to be looking for a pick in the jungle to start a fight around an objective. Once you have picked one or two players off your objectives are free, and you can use your ultimate To The Skies! to move your team quickly around the map to run at towers, or phoenix's.

Start Diff's

You can play Horus with War Flag it is the same build you see above only with the flag. The best upgrade would be Spartan Flag for the extra damage.

Personally I find having as many prots as possible on your support will result in the best outcome because you are able to tank more damage earlier. However if you are sure of yourself you can run the war flag.

Your guide says about Serqet, not Horus in the last part. It is there for a year

Sorry to come back to your guide but I dont know if you're aware that Pridwen applies with Horus ult the same that Nikes does where the shields dont stack.

AmoralOne (8) | February 18, 2021 6:55am
Welcome Back :) I value the 20% CD more myself, so I dont mind the trade-off of not being able to use the shield.

However I did put in the notes that they could build Relic Dagger and push the Spirit Robe back, and not build Pridwen

Yep no issue was just letting you know in case you built it with the thought that the passive did work.

You have Shifter's Shield in the majority of your physical support builds and I just don't think it's worth the spot on a warrior support with little use for the power scalings compared to prots and CDR, especially someone like Horus when you could just pick up a Caduceus Shield there.

I agree with big damage here, I love Shifter's Shield just as much as the next guy, but I'd honestly just prefer another item here... The first thing that comes to my mind is Relic Dagger or, like damage said; Caduceus Shield

Big Damage (34) | February 17, 2021 9:55pm
My Horus support build right now is

Sentinel's Embrace > Reinforced Greaves > Gauntlet of Thebes > Caduceus Shield > Relic Dagger > Mantle of Discord > Swap boots for Spirit Robe

Obviously I change it up a bit if they have 4 phys I'll get sov or if they have a magical solo and mid and they're both snowballing I'll get heartward etc. But this build makes you so tanky to just do your job super well.

Last season I would get The Sledge first after boots but because Shifter's Shield lacks the HP it doesn't feel as nice in the support role to me. I used to get Caduceus Shield later but that now fills the early bruiser item for me.

AmoralOne (8) | February 17, 2021 11:45am
Shifter's Shield is the new The Sledge Its cheap, you get extra damage early, and good protections. I dont deny that Caduceus Shield is good! Its just more gold, less protections, and less damage vs Shifter's Shield in the support role so I tend to stay away from it.

Big Damage (34) | February 17, 2021 12:34pm
It doesn't show on Smitefire but Cad shield is actually 2250 gold, coming in lower than Shifter's. It also provides HP which Shifter's does not. The damage/power difference doesn't really matter as I said because of scaling on Horus compared to say someone like Ne Zha.

The passives increase of your healing increases the total health you and your allies have throughout the game, providing team utility as a support should which Shifter's does not.
