SO, I have played a lot of joust, and I still fall on people who do not know what they are doing. So, I want to try and paint a clear picture to newcomers of how to play joust properly. To do so, I need to talk about compositions and which ones are the most effective. Now note I am not extremely knowledgeable about this game mode, but I do try my best. I invite any other people to add onto the various composition choices we discuss.
This is a classic composition which is hard to beat once it has a lead. In this comp, you sacrifice the dps you could have from a hunter for more control over team fights and consistent poke. In addition, with two tanks to go through, it makes the mage be comfortably set in the back line, where he/she can cast his abilities using the setup from the two tanks.
Example of Comp:
Warrior - Cu Chulainn (Bruiser Tank)
Guardian - Bacchus (Support Tank)
Mage - Aphrodite (Healer Mage)
This composition offers sustain, diving potential, high crowd control, high defense, and continuous poke from far. The key to make this composition work is to always be grouped up as a unit and lock down one enemy god at a time. With the CC from the guardian, the burst damage from the mage (and in this case heals), and the consistent damage from the bruiser, this comp is devastating. The secret to this comp is that the warrior (bruiser) is secretly the carry, because once the warrior is fed 3-4 kills early on, he can then use that lead to snowball extremely easily. If that is the comp you are aiming for, and you want to play a bruiser warrior, I recommend you pick from these:
- Cu Chulainn
These gods benefit a lot from early gold and xp, as they easily snowball. If you are looking to play more of a supportive role, you can play as a guardian and act as the tank for the team with a few recommended following picks:
These gods do not require the xp and gold. All of the gold and xp should go to the bruiser, as he can deal more damage; however, it may not be a bad idea to have a second fed tank, especially since most of these tanks perform even better when fed. If you are looking to play more of a safe role in the back line which requires fast reflexes, intelligent decision making, and map awareness, then you can pick the among the following:
- Baron Samedi
- He Bo
*Note* There are more mages that could obviously be included in this list, but I just chose what is really hot at the moment in Patch 5.21.
