Situational Item

Notes Obsidian Shard - If you're facing a protection heavy composition swap out Soul Reaver and purchase Obsidian Shard. This item ignores a % of the target's protections.

Rod of Tahuti - can be used instead of Shaman's Ring. It's passive works well with Zeus Detonate Charge if the enemy is below 50% health.

Divine Ruin - Replace Gem of Isolation with this to counter enemy gods that have healing in their kit or lifesteal builds.

Winged Blade - can help with some more survivability. Giving you more health, movement speed & CCR.

Hi everyone,
I'm new to the game and only really play joust. I love playing Zeus and play really well with him (most of the time lol).
So here is the build i use for Zeus in joust and i have had a lot of success with it.



CONCLUSION

This is by no means the best build but it works for me.
any feedback or criticism is welcome to improve the build or the guide it self. sorry i don't know how to code the item for easier reading.

Pros / Cons

PROS:
High damage

CONS:
Very slow
