The mana pool

take note of Ao kuang's passive ability
graceful winds
to me this is your priority, (PILE ON MANA)
along with the item
Book of Thoth
this will enhance the magical power you get from your mana, i have got nearly over 700 magical power with this build with items alone, just think how much you will get with consmables and buffs added *O*

so just remember with AO, go all out with mana.
always make sure you get an item that has mana or MP5 on, but Rod of Tahuti is an item you HAVE to get, due to its massive increase in magical power it gives you, and this magical power increase gracefully if you decide to get Rod of Tahuti before Breastplate of Valor


AO is only ever strong in mid lane, while proving not so great at side laning but can help out other lanes if you are owning mid, which will most probably be almost always unless your against a RA, this will then become a challenge against two great mid laners.
having the item
Breastplate of Valor will decrease your ability cooldown allowing you to spam
tornadoes more often, and it gives you protection against the common physical attacks, along with a big boost to mana.

with AOs tornadoes you can quickly take out a line of incoming enemy creeps.
and it reaplies the DPS damage if the enemy (creeps, jungle creeps, gods) stays in the area of which the ability is still in effect.

and remember, always look on the map for enemy ganks and always be aware of your surroundings of you are attacking the enemy tower with no visible enemy gods that are visible.
and one more thing for this chapter,
dont over stay your welcome.
be tactical, strategic and no stupidity.

Pros / Cons

1. can dish out alot of damage if your aiming and timing is correct and comboed with squall
2. AOs ult is insanely powerful if you can get a hit, (great in team fights with either a ares, hades, possibly odin)
4. can use squall in combo with slither for a quick get away

2. tornadoes can be easily dodged due taking about 1sec to take effect once cast
this is the same for his ult and can be dodged by players that can see what direction it is coming from spirit's tempest
3. mana seeps away quickly near the start of match so make sure you either have meditation
or Mana Potion

Item summary

okai so just for an item recap, at the start.
i suggest getting
1 level in Boots of the Magi (boots are the most common item in the game for all
builds so no surprise here)
and a couple of Mana Potion
(or unless your able to get two levels in the boots, i dont quite remember the costs per level of the items)
but always start of with Mana Potion

when you return, buy the items in the build by sequence or by your own sequence, and be sure to have Mana Potion untill atleast god level 10.


well thanks for reading, this is my first Ao Kuang guide abd just so im clear i dont know if there already build out there like this because i dont really look at others guides, i usually create my own builds and experiment, trial and error and rinse.

but anyhow i hope you enjoy what this guide has to offer and good luck


By me
God of judgement

I just wanted to say this guide is really cool!
I play with your build except for some minor changes.
Endgame I have ~950MP with this build if I have the max stacks -I usually do- from sash (100) and book (50).
I'm also playing with the thoughts of buying Poly instead of Breastplate, since it would boost your MP near 1K, and thats quite nice with it's passive :)
upvoted, cheers!;)

I like this guide, and this is one of my favorite ways to play ao kuang. I agree with animus that the gem should be taken earlier. I also prefer polynomicom to the breastplate. but really nice guide and build

as a range caster who is in safe range you probably want Book of Thoth before warlock since warlock wont give mana to sustain the lane nor will it give as much mana or damage and you will want to build charges earlier.

agreed as well on breastplate, in total it will give you 27.5 magic power which is practically nothing, the cd isnt as important either because of the duration it lasts and you shouldnt be having trouble with physical dmg gods.

Nice guide all in all

but do take gem earlyer
it helps the team a lot

and maybe switch breastplate with something else...
its not worth it on AO XD
