Introduction

Welcome to my little guide on Ymir.
It's a post 21.12.12 patch build, so the item descriptions here and in smite are different.
It will introduce you to the basic aspects of

MAGICMAN YMIR.


If you have any suggestions, please leave a comment with some constructive critique ^^.
It's my first guide, so please don't be too hard on me :D

I will update the guide as soon as i test the build more, or remember something i forgot.

Pros / Cons

PROS
-Can do decent damage, but is tanky at the same time
-Great CC with his Ice Wall and Frost Breath
-Good initiator ( Ice Wall, Frost Breath)
-His passive Frostbite makes him extremely dangerous early in the game


CONS
-his skills (mainly his ult) are hard to aim
-no jump/dash ( BUT HE HAS WALLS!)
-eeehhhh...
-well...
-lets skip this part

Items

I'll be explaining some item choices here:
- reinforced boots Basic magical and physical protection and SPEEEED
- Sovereignty gives Hp, Physical (and magical) protection + FOCUS
REALLY NICE Makes you basically invincible vs AD gods early game
- Void Stone gives you magical protection, magical power, magical penetration and FOCUS
Now you're invincible (at least for the moment ). Also gives necessary magical power and pierces trough opponents basic magical protection
- Bancrofts Talon This is where the magic starts. It Grants 100 magical power and 12% magical lifesteal, which is great (you need as much raw power as you can get), BUT THIS IS NOT ALL. It also has a great passive which Gives you 1 magical power for each 1% hp you have lost
It can Give you up to 199 magical power! Really useful, mainly because your tanky, so even with half full hp you're still safe, but also because you will often be focused in teamfights,
so you will loose hp before the ult goes off.
- Rod of Tahuti MOOOORE POOOWEEERR together with Bancrofts Talon your main source of magical power
- LAST ITEM this can be anything from the finishing items above , depending on the situation. If you pick up an item with no FOCUS be sure to get some in the STATS window asap. Makes your stuns and slows more powerfull.

Skills

Frostbite



Key Bind: Passive

All of Ymir's powers that affect enemies apply a debuff to the enemy called Frostbite. All of Ymir's normal melee strikes against a target afflicted by Frostbite do 50% more damage.

Great early game. After you stun your enemy or hit him with your 2, just punch him in the face. HARD. If possible place a wall to stop him escaping. With a good partner mostly results in a first blood.Get's less usefull late game.



Ice Wall




Key Bind: 1

Ymir summons a wall of ice out of the ground that blocks player movement. Pressing the button again while the wall is active will remove the wall.

Wall Lifetime: 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 s.

Cost: 60 / 65 / 70 / 75 / 80 mana.

Cooldown: 14 s.

Use to stop your opponent from escaping or to stop him from pursuing you

Glacial strike




Key Bind: 2

Ymir smashes his club, doing 90 / 160 / 230 / 300 / 370 (+60% of your magical power) magical damage to all enemies in front of him, slowing them by 50% for 4 seconds. Applies Frostbite.

Cost: 55 / 60 / 65 / 70 / 75 mana.

Cooldown: 11 s.

Your main damage dealer. Use after stun, additionally you can punch your opponent in the face some times, until Frostbit wears off. MACE TO THE FACE.

Frost Breath




Key Bind: 3

Ymir uses his breath to freeze enemies in blocks of ice, doing 50 / 90 / 130 / 170 / 210 (+50% of your magical power) magic damage and stunning them for the duration. Applies Frostbite.

Duration: 1.5 / 1.75 / 2 / 2.25 / 2.5 s.

Cost: 60 / 65 / 70 / 75 / 80 mana.

Cooldown: 18 s.

Your best ability. Try to stun as many enemies as possible and follow with spikes or ult.

Shards of Ice





Key Bind: 4

Ymir begins to freeze the air around him, causing shards of ice to grow on his back. After a 3 second slowing channel, Ymir erupts out of his frozen state, causing shards of ice to do 600 / 750 / 900 / 1050 / 1200 (+200% of your magical power) magical damage to all enemies in his range. Applies Frostbite.

Cost: 80 / 90 / 100 / 110 / 120 mana.

Cooldown: 90 / 85 / 80 / 75 / 70 s.

If you can keep them in the circle for 3 seconds they're dead. Use only with your stun + wall IF they have no escape. early game you can only hit with this by:
1)Activating your stun, activating your ult, letting your partner activate his stun
2)having an INSANE amount of luck
3)having REALLY bad enemies in your lane

Team Work

Ymir works best with an AD or AP carry which has a stun, like loki, anubis, anhur, or even arachne, or a good pusher (ra, Anubis, hel).

You can deal decent damage, but it's almost impossible to kill without your partner. PROTECT HIM AT ALL COSTS, YOU'RE THE ONE WITH THE BALLS WALLS
In team fights try to initiate by cutting off one enemy with your wall and then stunning him.

If Arachne jumps on one of your allies, stun her of him.

Abilities

CREEPING CURSE, 'NUFF SAID

Tipps & Tricks

-While escaping try to put your wall directly under you, as , cause of the delay, it will appear behind you, cutting off your pursuers. DOES NOT WORK WHEN YOU'RE SLOWED.
-Try to start team fights in the jungle, where your walls and ult are most effective.

I used this build for a few matches in arena and I am very satisfied, however I do not have much luck when playing conquest but that could be because of teammates not paying attention. But otherwise this is a good build.



That was my match in arena, 11-0-21. Sadly xbalanque left though which made it easier.
