Introduction

Like a lot of mages, Discordia is very fragile. Utilizing Erratic Behavior is imperative to survival. Be cautious of players who easily pick up this trick, however, as they will wait until you hop away before they pounce you (Bastet, Awilix, Odin, Kali, etc) or cast their large AoE (Ah Puch, Scylla). Erratic Behavior is great for diverting enemy ultimates when timed right like Loki, Artemis, Rama, Thor, and Thanatos.



Pros:
  • Good burst damage
  • Great control and disruption
  • Excellent wave clear
  • Immunity frame escape
  • Great global passive
Cons:
  • Very fragile
  • Predictable
  • Easy to counter

Combos & Skills

Item Overview

My builds centralize around maximizing CDR and adding mobility to provide constant harass (brawling). I know they are seen as unconventional, but that's the point.

Regarding items selected, I would deem the following as a "core kit" for Discordia.
Disclaimer: This isn't the holy grail, just an idea.


Replace Doom Orb during mid/late game, it's viability falls off late game.

For defensive items, there are a few that I like to pair with her:

Enemy God Counters

After hours playing against an array of gods, I've developed some tricks I'd like to share with new up-and-coming Discordia players.

These tricks heavily depend on max CDR (or holding onto Erratic Behavior). Refer to Introduction > Combos for additional information regarding your abilities and how to best use them.

Assassins

Guardians

Mages and Hunters

Tips and Tricks

I hope these have been helpful! More tips against gods will be added later or upon request.

Refelections

As a closing note, there's something I'd like to add for people to think about; when you maximize CDR on Discordia, everything in the world seems right. To get the most out of Discordia, you need CDR--yes, even her kit has it built in, but it is not enough--because as a brawler, and you are as Discordia, you need your Erratic Behavior up as often as possible. At maximum CDR it is on a nine second recast. Remember, the purpose of my builds is to provide constant harass.

I will be adding more to this build as time goes on and items/playstyles change.
