Boots
?These greaves offer a small amount of protection in combat and provide Odin with early CDR which is a big part of Odin's build.

Build Item Reinforced Greaves

Early Game
?Thebes offers cost-effective early game protections, and minor health regen. While you build stacks on the gauntlet, you can work toward the Stone of Gaia to max out health regen.

Protection (Pick One)
?These items provide balanced protections and some CDR which can help to make Odin an infuriating nuisance.

Build Item Mantle of Discord Build Item Spirit Robe

Late-Game Options (Pick Two)
?Jotunn's adds some penetration and additional CDR,. I personally love Frostbound for the slow which can stack with Gungnir's Dainty Pirouette. Alternatively, Masamune will add damage, movement speed, and minor protections.

Build Item Jotunn's Wrath Build Item Frostbound Hammer Build Item Masamune

Relic CDR
?A common strategy with Odin is to utilize the Blink Rune and his leap to cover a lot of ground and surprise/trap the enemy in his Ult. The relic dagger makes it possible to do that more often. My recommendation would be to swap with Frostbound.

Relics
?Blink Rune is a critical relic for capitalizing on Odin's ultimate. The Aegis Amulet and Heavenly Wings offer some help escaping if you find yourself without your leap.

Odin - Happy Allfather's Day

Sephious

Introduction

Odin is a flexible and very dangerous god. His abilities allow for ambushing enemies and controlling their movements; however, it's necessary to find a balance between protection and damage as he will often be on the front lines. Odin's abilities are critical to effectively using him, but most builds avoid mana regen, so choose your moment carefully and make the most of the mana you have.

Odin's primary combo takes the form:
Raven Shout -> Lunge -> Gungnir's Might

Raven Shout will set up your leap ability, Lunge, with an explosion of damage when you land. Use the leap to enter into the fray suddenly and follow with Gungnir's Might to slow any enemies trying to escape. Swapping Gungnir's Might for Ring of Spears when available will ensure a more effective capture of enemies trying to escape.

Skills

PATH TO VALHALLA
Odin is empowered as he escorts fallen warriors to Valhalla. Whenever any god dies on the battleground, Odin gains a bonus to Movement Speed and Power. This effect can stack up to 5 times.

Duration: 8 seconds
Movement Speed per Stack: 4%
Power per Stack: 8%

LUNGE
Odin lunges to his target location, doing damage to all nearby enemies.

Damage: 120/165/210/255/300 +70% of physical power
Radius: 20
Cooldown: 15/14/13/12/11 seconds
Mana Cost: 45/50/55/60/65

RAVEN SHOUT
Odin summons a flock of Ravens that create a shield around him. When the shield expires it explodes outward, dealing damage to nearby enemies based on how much health it had remaining. If the shield is at full health, it deals additional bonus damage.
The shield will not expire while Odin is using Lunge, and will always detonate upon landing.

Note: Does not protect from execute effects.

Duration: 4 seconds
Radius: 20

Slow Duration: 2/2.2/2.4/2.6/2.8 seconds
Radius: 20
Cooldown: 10 seconds
Mana Cost: 70

RING OF SPEARS
Odin summons a wall of spears that blocks his enemies movement, but Odin and his allies may move freely through. It does not block attacks. Enemies inside the ring have their attack speed lowered, and are prevented from healing. Odin is immune to Slow and Root effects while in his Ring.
Enemies that die inside Ring of Spears grant Odin a permanent bonus to Physical Power.

Note: Odin doesn't need to land the killing blow to gain a stack.

Healing Reduction: 100%
Duration: 5s
Physical Power per Stack: 5 (Max 10 Stacks)
Radius: 30
Cooldown: 75 seconds
Mana Cost: 100

Pros / Cons

Pros:
-Flexible builds (High Damage or High Sustain)
-Great crowd control
-High burst damage

Cons:
-Offensive escape ability
(That's seriously all I could come up with)

Summary

The builds in this guide offer options to build Odin as a damage-absorbing crowd-controller, an intimidating ambush artist, or a balanced nuisance capable of killing enemies and setting up allies. Critical elements of playing as Odin involve coordinating his ambush for maximum damage (if you are in a position to work with teammates) and utilizing mana efficiently to ensure you have your abilities at the critical moments. Odin is an excellent front line leader; capable of initiating attacks and holding his own in chaotic full team brawls; however, the defensive/escape nature of his abilities forces you to choose your moment. Attempting to ambush with his leap will leave you without an escape, and using the Raven Shout-Lunge combo, will leave you without a shield ability.
