Changing Tides - Passive
This passive allows Poseidon to achieve more damage on his abilities at high tide (20% at Max Tide), movement speed (15% at Max Tide) and is gained by basic attacks (his 2 also contributes to this). Basic Attacks give 10% Tide Level on hit.
Tidal Surge - 1
This ability launches out a wave in a direct line in front of you, knocking enemies back and deals damage. This uses 20% of your tidal meter.
Trident - 2
This ability activates his trident allowing him to launch 2 more projectiles (3 in total) with his basic attack. This ability deals magical damage +20% of Poseidon's magical power. This also increases his Passive, Changing Tides. (Note, multiple hits from the basic attack with Trident up builds more passive, so if possible hit 2 or 3 of its basic attack! This ability procs and uses the passive of Polynomicon)
Whirlpool - 3
The bread and butter of Poseidon. It deals damage every .5 seconds for 3 seconds, cripples targets preventing movement abilities and pulls enemies to the center (20 unit radius). It consumes a total of 20% of his passive and is good for locking down Gods with movement abilities such as Ratatoskr's Dart. (Note: This ability is technically not a slow, but more in the vein of Baron Samedi's Life of the Party)
Release The Kraken! - 4/Ultimate
This ultimate is like a nuclear bomb. It consumes 30% of Poseidon's passive, damages and slows targets in the radius (30 units). Enemies in the center take additional damage, are knocked up in the air and stunned.
Whirlpool -> Trident -> Basic Attacks. This keeps enemies from juking your Trident autos and allows for easier passive gain.
Whirlpool -> Tidal Surge. Same as above, enemies have a harder time juking your Tidal Surge.
Whirlpool -> Tidal Surge -> Trident -> Basic Attacks. Combines both combos from above into one nice package!
Whirlpool -> Release The Kraken!. Keeps the enemy from using movement abilities, locking them in the heart of the ultimate for big damage (unless they use relics to escape the damage). You can also follow this up with your Tidal Surge if the Whirlpool+ Release The Kraken! combo did not kill.
Bonus (This is using Staff of Myrddin's passive); Whirlpool -> Release The Kraken! -> Tidal Surge -> Tidal Surge. This allows you to deal huge amounts of damage that will let you use Staff's power and practically guarantee a kill even on most tanks! (You can also do the Trident+Basic attack combo following this if necessary.)
This is my first build on this website, so I hope to recieve some help and well earned criticism. I look forward to improving and making more builds as the time comes.
I use this build on gods with heavy tick focused ability such as; Kukulkan, Merlin, Aphrodite (when I am bored), Ah Puch and finally Anubis.
This is no means a build that everyone will enjoy or get use of, it is just something I smashed together for fun and have found success in all game modes with. I hope you enjoy and hope to hear some helpful feedback!
