Hades' threats

Author's Note

Everything but the Build titled Joust is for Arena

Pros / Cons

Pros:
-High burst damage
-High mobility for a mage
-Capable of reducing enemy protections
-Mild crowd control
-High sustain

Cons:
-Minimal health pool
-Heavily reliant on abilities
-Vulnerable to Crowd Control
-Has to get close

Items

Main Shredder: This is definitely a glass cannon. With only Bancrofts and Devour Souls for sustain, this build has no other defensive or sustain items. Although, with maximum CDR, Spear of Deso, and Chronos' you will be getting abilities back very quickly.
Shoes of the Magi-Pen boots are nice on Hades in this build, since a lot of it is focused on Magical Power and CDR
Chronos' Pendant-This is a shredder build, and because Hades is so reliant on his abilities, 20% CDR and Chronos's passive are very useful to maximize their use
Bancroft's Talon-I feel like Bancroft's is very good on most mages, and because Hades has to get close, scaled lifesteal is helpful-especially synergized with his Devour Souls healing
Spear of Desolation-A big CDR item with 10% reduction and a helpful passive. It also provides needed penetration to the build
Shaman's Ring-Hades is very slow, so the 10% Movement Speed is helpful to get him on par or close to other gods. It also has high MP and a passive that fits very well into his combos
Rod of Tahuti-One of the highest Magical Power stats in SMITE, and its passive main use is fitting into your ultimate combo-after you use all other subsequent abilites

Situational Divine Ruin-Suggested by Boogiebass, for anti-heal and tanks

Items

Alt Shredder: The biggest difference between the Shredder Builds is the increase in Magical and Physical Protections. This is a build that still focuses on damage, but has some defensive items.

Core Items:
Breastplate of Valor-
Void Stone-
Spear of the Magus-I would count this as a core item in this build. This build has less magical power than the main, but it has more penetration, and Spear of the Magus is a great tool for quickly reducing enemy protections. It's drawback is its passive only applies to damaging ABILITIES, not basic attacks. This means you can only get 60% value out of them item. But, it's still a strong item when paired with other penetration/debuff items like Void Stone

Definitely more explanations. For example, you wrote weak early game clear, but is it really that bad? Also would be nice for people understand why these items with some explanations about them.

Happy to talk. And by the way, I would be happy to include a full build of your own design onto the guide/build. The more information and options I think the better

Well, in the shredder Alt build, you have no alternative options for physical defense. Only magical defense.

In the tank build, your Mantle of Discord is in there too early. It's a pretty expensive item. You may be able to get away with it in Arena, but it might be a bit harder in games like Clash/Siege.

DtE, you might want to mention that this is for Arena in your build title.
