Item explanations and uses

Decent early game movement speed item for tanks, supports and to an extent mages. The reason why you buy boots of celerity is because you can get to your target a lot faster instead of being really slow with mark of vanguard and Reinforced Greaves

winged wand With its stat buff, it's now viable for tanks, supports and mages. Cool-down reduction is good with Ymir because it means more freezes and walls. The passive is great for someone who has no escape. (hover over item to see passive)

Magi's blessing Really good now. Health and Crowd control reduction replaces Reinforced Greaves and is better then Hide of Leviathan. The passive is great against a team with high crowd control and combined with Winged wand, You've got a ticket out of jail.

Cool-down reduction passive is great on any support because it means more abilities in a less amount of time. Stats also benefit Ymir's survivability, and mana.

Combined with the 'free ticket out of jail' thing. The passive is a lifesaver, even when it was nerfed. I believe this item is better then Stone of Gaia because you don't need sustainability for ymir because you don't soak up damage, That's not your job.

Just for the health and mana. The magic power is optional. You don't have to buy this item but if you're versing a team full of burst mage and physical then buy it.

NOTE: You can buy any other items after Boots of Celerity, Winged wand and Magi's blessing. These 3 items are a core for this build, the rest is entirely up to you.

What is your job?

Ymir's job is simple.

- Roam around and secure kills/assist team-mates in lanes. This involves:

- You are NOT there to soak up damage like Hercules HOWEVER you are subject to tank a tower for pushing.

- Buy wards and sentry wards for map vision

PLEASE READ: This is a simple guide telling you what to build and what to do. This can be hard to do sometimes and will not always work, nobody is perfect. I am not responsible for your losses, kdr or elo loss because that stuff is entirely up to you.

Amazing. Just amazing. The build works so I'll upvote, but I wish you could make it a full guide.

Great guide! but i was thinking...instead of bulwark of hope u buy stone of gaia? what do u think about that?

You I would rather have Bulwark of Hope in situations where there is a large amount of damage going on, the passive has more of a chance to save you then Stone of Gaia.
