Empowering the 1° Skill

The first skill do 3 slams on the ground and you have different result if you land more slams on an enemy:
- 1 SLAM: damage of 170 +40% of your Physical Power
- 2 SLAMS: damage of 170 +40% of your Physical Power x2 and 20 protection reduced for 5s
- 3 SLAMS: damage of 170 +40% of your Physical Power x3, 20 protection reduced for 5s and disarm for 2s
It's your main damage skill and normally used for clear the minion waves and disable enemy gods.

Soul eater evolved could be a good choice for having 3 staks of healing in one spell.

Empowering the 2° Skill

The second skill create a shield that protect from basic attack and deal damage reflecting the enemyes and can explode in a frontal area.

Using the crusher you can deal damage during the use of the spell and multiple reflection on the same enemy will reset the timing of the crusher.
Also hearthseeker could be a good option.

Midguardian mail could be a funny option for slowing some smart guy that continue to fire at you.

Empowering the 3° Skill

There isn't much to talk about the 3° skill, is a simple jump with damage in the area, nothing more, so power items are all good choices.

Brawler's beat stick and the crusher works very well, applying the debuff in a large area.

Empowering the 4° Skill

With the 4° skill we have many possibilities:

-Pridwen and bulwark of hope are a good combo item for having a continuous amount of shield and extra helth. In particular Pridwen is a good solution for increase the survivability after the ulti vanish.

-Brawler's beat stick and the crushe works well, like the 3° skill.

-Runeforge hammer is good for basic attacks after the casting because the enemy ara slowed for 6s.

-Arondight work well for chasing the escaping enemies.

Other Questions

Nike's skills have a long cooldown, so is normal have a moment when you can only do basic attacks. Thinking around that you could empower that attack with frostbound hammer and do a good combo with runeforge hammer.

If you go with soul eater, you can also take gladiator's shield to maximize the healing potential and increase your mana (and you are every time low of mana).

Mail of renewal is a pretty good choice for increase your survivability and with bulwark of hope and pridwen you became incredibly annoying.

This build is thinked as a base for something differente frome the same nike solo, i'll probably try her in jungle a couple of time because i think she haa the potential for been something more than a simple solo laner. If she work i'll create a new guide of her.

Gaia is not core on her anymore. If you want sustain, build glad shield.
