Raijin is a thing now ! OP damage [4.19]
October 14, 2017
Hi everyone. Just a very quick guide for you guys. We've seen many builds on SmiteFire for Raijin, suitable for different playstyles, most of them are not bad. But since new patch, Raijin is kinda OP now (very efficient early game wave clear and monstrous late game damage). Won't bother to go deep in details for now so just check these builds out, try 'em and let me know what you think. Works awesomely well for me.
How to play Raijin
You max your 1 first and your 2 second. You put only one point in your 3 until late game and max your ult when possible. The combo is you throw your 2 on a target (it slows and mark them) and when you hit the target with either a basic attack or a ability, it gives tick of damage for a duration. So combo is 2 + 1 on a target and they take huge damage. Simple as that. For wave clear, throw your 2 on archers and hit the whole wave with your 1. Clears really fast.
So you can also combine your 2 with another ability, your 3 or ult, but most of the time you'll use your 3 just as an escape, though if you're very aggressive and confident, you can pull out of some kill in close range by throwing your whole kit against an assassin for example, and secure kill with your 3 (first damage, then teleport into it damage) for escaping low hp ennemies. Very useful and polyvalent ability. Be sure btw to read ult description. Press 1, 2 or 3 for more dmg, taunt or fear. The taunt is useful for team ganking, either on attack or defense. Combines your taunt with your teammates abilities or even save teammates by dragging the opponents towards you. If done well, his ult can be extremely efficient.
So that's it guys hope you enjoy these builds. Comments and suggestions are appreciated. Thanks for reading and have fun.
Let the rhythm hit 'em !
