Janus creates a portal in the world. If placed on a wall, the portal will create a passage through to the other side of the wall that Janus or any ally may use. The portal may be entered from either side, but closes after 1 use. If placed on the ground, enemies and Janus will fall into the portal, being teleported into the air above it. Enemies take damage upon landing, and are considered banished during the fall.

Yeah this build desperately needs defensive or health based items. Idk why everyone just plays with power based pieces ( ・᷄ ︵・᷅ ) Loki or Arachnie pull up you’re absolutely done in 3 seconds.

Nemean hard counters Loki and if you’re dying to Arachne then pick up winged blade or midgardian.

You could also focus on, you know, using relics and learning to position properly.

Also congratulations on looking at outdated builds.
