Solo Build

Smite God: Ratatoskr

Item Purchase Order

Final Build Example
?Standard Build for a Ratatoskr solo. The last item is totally situational, in this case I chose Masamune to keep some damage and still being able to tank a little.

Build Item Acorn of Yggdrasil
Build Item Void Shield
Build Item Ancile
Build Item Brawler's Beat Stick
Build Item Mantle of Discord
Build Item Masamune

Starter
?Standard start to stay alive until you get your acorn online. You don't need Mana Potions because you have blue buff and also don't need to return base to buy your acorn, so buy a lot of sustain.

Build Item Magic Acorn Build Item Warrior's Blessing Build Item Chalice of Healing Build Item Healing Potion Build Item Healing Potion Build Item Healing Potion

Bridge Items
?Items to help you at early game with a consider stats and passives for the price but not so helpful at late game so consider replacing it.

Build Item Gladiator's Shield Build Item Runic Shield

Defensive items
? Pestilence is a core item if you are fighting against a healer. This items will offer the protections you need or other important stats for a solo such as health pool.

Build Item Bulwark of Hope Build Item Pestilence Build Item Stone of Gaia Build Item Breastplate of Valor Build Item Hide of the Urchin Build Item Mantle of Discord Build Item Spirit Robe Build Item Magi's Cloak Build Item Lono's Mask

Ofensive Items
?Some damage items to help you. Brawler's Beat Stick is a core item if vs. Healers. The preference here, for a solo build is always those items that offer protections too

Build Item Brawler's Beat Stick Build Item Masamune Build Item Titan's Bane Build Item Void Shield Build Item Shifter's Shield Build Item Ancile

Extreme Tank build example
?Situational build. The recommended is always a bruiser build. This build will max you tank capabilities and you will use your kit with the utility only 'cause your damage will be too low. You will not be able to secure a kill easily or do a decent damage like you would if you did a bruiser build.

Build Item Acorn of Yggdrasil Build Item Breastplate of Valor Build Item Pestilence Build Item Midgardian Mail Build Item Mantle of Discord Build Item Lono's Mask

Normal tank build
?Normal tank build with a little power. If the enemy has no/low cc, change Magi's Cloak in another defense item.

Build Item Acorn of Yggdrasil Build Item Breastplate of Valor Build Item Bulwark of Hope Build Item Magi's Cloak Build Item Mantle of Discord Build Item Masamune

Damage build example
?If you got brainless enemies and/or the match is too easy, you can rush more damage than the normal.

Build Item Acorn of Yggdrasil Build Item Void Shield Build Item Ancile Build Item Jotunn's Wrath Build Item The Crusher Build Item Brawler's Beat Stick

some tips

How to play


Early game
  • Be aggressive. At early game you do a lot of damage, even if you have only your acorn, use it at your advantage. Just a few characters can beat you on solo lane at early game (like Chang'e, Geb (he won't die for you :p), another rat...)

  • Attack the enemy tower. When you reach level 8~10 when you will have you first defense item, attack enemy tower as soon as possible putting pressure. If you see things getting too hot for you Through the Cosmos to get out of there.

  • NEVER DO Teleport Glyph just because there are better relics that can save you/your team, plus you have a lot of mobility so you DON'T need it. Purification Beads, Aegis Amulet and many other are better options.

  • Never dive a tower at early game. Diving a tower at early game is a difficult task even to warriors/guardians (true tanks), so think now about you...No way. NO MATTER WHAT EASY THE KILL IS, DON'T GO.There are high chances of dying in the process and even die without the kill. A tower shot is half of your HP (or more) at early game.
Mid game
  • Your rotations are important. As soon as possible (when you destroy the enemy tower) start to rotate and gank other lanes. Remember: Your ultimate is so powerful and useful so don't be afraid of use it. This probably will happen at mid game.

  • Help your teammates with their objectives. Although you are not a carry, you have a nice damage on basic attacks, so use them in your favor.

  • Dives are possible now are possible now that you have physical defenses. Let the enemy with low health and finish him with Through the Cosmos and the other skills ( Flurry and the acorns) then use Dart to get out of the tower.
Late game
  • At late game be careful because you are not a true tank. Focus in eliminate the enemy squishy targets (usually the jungler, adc and mid).

  • Your ultimate at late game will give you a nice split push capacity. Try to split other lanes and if they come to you use your ultimate to escape, but be careful, your team will miss you a lot in a teamfight, so don't forget your team to do this, it does not worth.

Final Considerations

My conclusion is that Rat is working very good at solo lane now, even more than jungle due the nerfs and can be a very fun character to play in this role.

Following the mini guide I posted here you will do a nice job with him.

REMEMBER THIS GUIDE AND BUILD ARE FOR SOLO LANE ONLY! IF YOU WANT TO JUNGLE WITH HIM, SEE OTHER GUIDE IN HIS PAGE!

Ratatoskr just want to ask to hirez...
