Magical Power focus

Notes I would say this build is most recomended to Arena; I don't use Soul Reaver on Nu Wa, but it works nice on her, specially if you using Polynomicon for the basic attack damage increase.
The negative point is about the cooldown. You can change Shoes of The Magi for Shoes of Focus: Nu Wa is a cooldown dependent (imo, her biggest weakness). But for Arena type it seems a nice build.

Quick review

Polynomicon is a really good item for Nu Wa and most people ignore this item. After using clay minions and shining metal to stunt enemies, you'll make a great damage with your next physical attack in your enemy (in a late-game situation it can secure you a kill).

Shining Metal is the priority skill; then,Mysterious Fog for a good lane push; Clay Soldiers, having 2 of these is enough for the early/mid game (I see people using Clay Soldiers as a priority skill- don't do this, when you use shining metal to explode the minions, the damage of the explosion comes exactly from the Shining Metal. About Fire Shards, well, ya'll know how it works, so I'll just say what everyone says: use it when someone's escaping, when the enemy team players are hidind in the jungle, or to escape :P

Use always the skill sequence used in the first Build example; it's aceptable if you change Mysterious Fog order for Clay Soldiers.

About the Asault build: If you already want to start with Chrono's Pendant, that's not a big problem. If you really want to push lane and have some potions to save your back, fine.
Meditation Cloak is a must-have relic! Remember it is hard to escape enemies when using Nu Wa, so Asault mode requires more careful.

Made by a 7-star maestry Nu Wa :D
