Build Summary

Start

Notes Sands for that cooldown and magic focus will turn into Spear of Desolation.

Beads are universally good, and vision will help you stay aware of your gank spots.

Hp pots to help with poke not stacking too much and a ward as you need to be aware. Magic pot would be okay, but I prefer wards.

Tiamat's Skill Order Notes Upgrading your 3 at level is also perfectly okay and is what most others will say is preferable.

Getting your 1 online gives it extra projectiles and allows you to clear lane no problem.

1 priority the 3 as it will let your escape and kill confirmed ability have a much lower cooldown.

Primordial Onslaught / Consume

1 X
Primordial Onslaught (Flying): Tiamat gathers power, allowing her to fire orbs of energy at the end of the channel. Each orb damages enemies and stops on enemy gods. Hitting the same enemy deals 15% less damage each time, to a minimum of 70% reduction. This ability can fire additional projectiles at ranks 3 and 5.

Ability Type: Line, Damage
Damage: 80 / 90 / 90 / 100 / 100 (+30% of your Magical Power)
Cost: 55 / 60 / 65 / 70 / 75
Cooldown: 10s

Consume (Ground): Tiamat fires a cone dealing damage and slowing enemies hit. Minions, Large Monsters or Buff Holders hit under a health threshold are executed. Tiamat can immediately consume her Serpent and Beast pets to provide a Hardened Scale. When Tiamat consumes a Buff Holder she gains their buff while the original can still be picked up by allies. This allows Tiamat to pick up a second buff as well. Tiamat can only have one consumed and one regular buff at a time.

Ability Type: Cone, Slow, Damage
Damage: 60 / 95 / 130 / 165 / 200 (+50% of your Magical Power)

Damage: 50 / 80 / 110 / 140 / 170 (+40% of your Magical Power)
Cost: 65 / 70 / 75 / 80 / 85

Extended Build

(Personal)Main Build/Anti-heal/Pen/CD

Notes Upgrading your starter usually is better, but Chronos passive is my personal go to. So instead of a fourth item, sell your starter at the perfect time to get Chronos. (This isn't necessary so leveling pendulum of ages instead is perfectly okay and preferred by most.)

Spear of Deso is just more cost-efficient and better in the long run than Doom Orb, but if you're ahead in gold early its not a horrible idea to forsake a different item from Doom Orb than Spear

Divine Ruin for Anti-Heal, the Pen is nice too.

Rod of Tauti is just grat in every way, power, pen, mp5, its just great to get.

Staff of Myradin gives great stats, and every 45 seconds you get its passive as you never have to worry about your ult being on cooldown(most of the time)

Obsidian is awesome. Stats and pen passive on your 1.

Introduction

Tiamat is not an easy god to play at first. As you get used to her, you will understand that she requires you to learn more about other gods and her. I hope this guide will help you as I struggled a lot while learning her, and I still have much to learn, but this is all I know so far.

I am also making builds for other gods I enjoy, such as Charybdis, Khepri, and Tyr when I learn more about him.

Let me know if you wish for more details on something and I can add it to the guide. Suggestions to a build I will also try and implement.

Skills

Make sure to read her abilities.

Her 1 in ground stance absorbs a duplicate buff allowing someone else to pick another up if you kill that minion with it with this ability.

Her 3 in flight form allows you to jump over walls so make use of that if needed.

Her Ult has 3 choices
- 1 for lane clearing and siege
- 2 for a 1v1 or 2v2 or even a chase
- 3 for team fights

Ranked Play

Play it safe and don't overextend, you won't have your escape(unless you choose to level 3 instead of 1).

Don't back until you can get your spear of desolation, if the enemy mid is killed you may be able to clear lane and back(recall) in time to get your Tier 2 item to put you ahead (or keep you on the same level if enemy mid had enough gold).

Once you have your Ult it's a good idea to keep the practice of using it to send your lizard minions to help your regular minions while you back. This also gives you credit for the deaths(or assists) as they are your minions. This can also be used when you back to send them down your allies' lanes (I prefer solo as it takes them more time to kill your minions whereas the enemy carry could do it quicker).

Try to keep your 2 buffs on as much as you can, absorbing the green buff and then taking red makes you quite the powerhouse and helps mitigate those early-mid game problems.

Telling people to sell Sands for Pendant instead of Pendulum is terrible advice. Also you should be building Reaver on most Mages.

Pendulum > Deso > Divine/Coin > Coin/Divine > Reaver > Tahuti is what i'd suggest if you want Sands

If you want Pendant: Focus > Pendant > Divine/Deso > Reaver > Coin/Shard > Tahuti

Kriega, assuming you'd prefer the Pendulum build over Focus, right? In what situations might you go Gem over Sands, if any?

Why? Having the ability to spam your Ult even faster and always having something going on is pretty valuable. And it’s stats are fine and lets you get better cooldown before lvl 20.

Besides that’s just my personal build that I use I’m editing it for the more traditional builds that pros/meta builds have.

Edit : [Fixed to have the recent Meta build at the top]

I do agree that Pendulum is just a generally superior item to Pendant...if nothing else, the higher power potential (equivalent to a total of 190 power when your mana is full) is really nice. I can get where the extra second of CDR here and there will be useful, but selling your starter at that point (after finishing your 4th item) just seems a bit inefficient for mid-game building.

Also, I really don't see why you would wait until level 5 with point-skipping to put an additional point into your 1...generally IMO I would just put a point into the 3 at level 4 (acknowledging that you do say that's okay also).
