Welcome To "How To Cernunnos"
This is where you can learn how to play Cernunnos
trust me, this will help you

Pros / Cons

High single target damage
Good/Safe farm and poke
Good teamfight
Good CC
Very high power scaling on abilities

Shifter of Seasons is hard to use early (late game is summer only)
The Wild Hunt is not very good outside of teamfights
Passive only useful when doing jungle camps


Level Up Order
Bramble Blast
Shifter of Seasons
Horn Charge
The Wild Hunt

Why This Way

Bramble Blast is your clear/poke ability (this is one of the reasons bluestone is really good)

Shifter of Seasons is your heal/boxing tool (reason two for bluestone; free lifesteal)
Use spring to heal off the wave and camps (15% lifesteal)
Use summer to box/kill people (25 bonus damage)
Use autumn to do more damage early (25 flat pen, almost useless late-game)
Use winter to chase kills when you dont have Hastened Fatalis (15% slow on basics)

Horn Charge
Its used to chase/run away or as a burst tool in the early game

The Wild Hunt
Drop this in a teamfight to burn beads and to cause a panic
Also good for self peel (sometimes)


Why To Buy These Items
Bluestone Pendant
The free lifesteal on Shifter of Seasons means Daeths Toll is a lot less useful

Warrior Tabi
The damage of Warrior Tabi is better then the attack speed of Ninja Tabi because of all the attack speed later in the build

Ichaival/Sliverbranch Bow
These two items are the best in the game for early boxing because of the pen and power steal

Qin's Sais
This items allows you to do much more damage to solos and supports, also the extra power is nice

More pen, attack speed and lifesteal

Hastened Fatalis
The passive is OP and the stats of the the item are perfect for Cernunnos

The Crusher
The stats are good and the passive reduces the cooldown of abilities for more burst

Items Pt.2

What Not To Buy And Why

Bloodforge has no attack speed or pen to help Qin's do more damage

The Executioner
Percent pen is not useful Vs other hunters and Executioner's passive does not work on towers

Titans Bane
Just like Executioner but works on towers

Odysseus' Bow
All attack speed and no pen = bad

The extra power is good for the scaling on the abilities but the basic attack build does more damage

Devourer's Gauntlet
Same as Transcendence

All Crit
Crit over all is bad because the pen + Qin's build is better

Team Work

Gods Cernunnos Works Well With

When Sobek dashes at an enemy and throws them behind himself, get ready to Bramble Blast them when they land

When Sylvanus pulls an enemy in, get ready to Bramble Blast

Drop The Wild Hunt inside the Odin cage for a bunch of pigs

Chaining stuns and roots is very good

Khepri is over all the best support in the game because of the rez


Gods That Counters Cernunnos

His cage has a attack speed debuff and Cernunnos has no way get out

His yawn slows attack speed

More Help

There is a steamer named dmbrandon who has helped me become a better player with his guides

This is a link to his Twitch

This is a link to his Youtube

Check him out


Just build a lot of attack speed, pen and Qin's to mow people down
Also be careful of his counters, they really shut him down

What build would you recommend for Arena since there are no towers to worry about?

FYI it's reduced protections, not pen
