Situational Items Notes Heartseeker - If you're paired with another warrior or a guardian and want to start adding some stronger hits, stacking prior to using your 3 or ultimate helps quite a bit.

Talaria Boots - Allows you to quickly come back to lane but also helps while chasing with your 2 and mystic mail while chasing low health enemies.

Hide of the Nemean Lion - Great against a strong hunter with plenty of Crit. Damage.

First Guide! Critics and Help welcomed!

Joust Build for Cu Chulainn.

Warrior Tabi
+40 Physical Power
+18% Movement Speed

Harder hits + Movement Speed

Gladiators Shield
+15 Physical Power
+30 Physical Protection
+10% Cooldown Reduction

Passive - Anytime you hit an Enemy god with an ability you are healed for 2.5%
of your maximum Health and Mana. This can only trigger once per ability.

Sustains with health every time an enemy god is hit with an ability. Exceptionally beneficial with Ultimate.

+80 Magical Protection
+200 Health

AURA - Enemy gods within 55 units have their healing reduced by 25%.

Mystic Mail
+300 Health
+40 Physical Protection

AURA - ALL enemies within 25 units are dealt 40 Magical Damage per second.

Depending on if your enemy team has a strong Mage or Strong Assassin I would suggest interchanging which you build first (Pestilence or Mystic Mail). They both give you a decent health boost, and even though Mystic mail has less protections is is awesome dealing both physical AND magical damage when paired with VENT ANGER. Decide based on your opponents.

Hastened Katana
+25 Physical Power
+25% Attack Speed
+10% Movement Speed
PASSIVE - Hitting an enemy with a Basic Attack grants Haste for 1s, causing you
to be immune from Basic Attack Movement Penalty.

Pretty Much the hastened fatalis of S5. This allows you to continue chasing your opponent while attacking faster. Amazing damage while paired with Mystic Mail and VENT ANGER ability.

Stone Of Gaia
+400 Health
+25 HP5
+15 MP5

PASSIVE - If you are hit by a Knockup, Knockback, Pull, or Grab you gain 15%
of your maximum Health over the next 10 seconds. Can only occur
once every 60s

PASSIVE - Regenerates 0.3% of your max. Health every second.

More health, More HP5, and whenever you're hit with a CC you gain back 15% of your health while regenerating .3% of your health every second.

With the pair of PESTILENCE and MYSTIC MAIL adding an additional 500 health to the new 400 health will help increase the .3% passive to 3 health/sec +25 HP5 and an additional 150 health back from a CC.

Staying in the fight continues when you use BRACER OF UNDOING to keep attacking and damaging from VENT ANGER and MYSTIC MAIL.

Using Chalice and Potions makes you... annoying at this point.

Thanks for reading! Hope this helps!

No Hastened Katana on Cu Chulainn please since this is a joust build not a duel one.

What? Hastened Katana on Cu Chulainn in duel is a thing?
Kriega1 (115) | June 26, 2018 6:26am
In some niche scenarios I’ve seen it built. I’ve watched Zyrhoes play Thoth in duel and if his dash is down then Cu Chullain is free to stick to him easily and kill him (in that case the person picked up Hastened katana) . Duel has weird builds sometimes like building Thanatos and some ability based warriors auto attacked based to help them scale better into the lategame.
