Some words.

Hey guys here is my Thor guide. I will add more to the chapters when I have more time on my hands but I just wanted to share the build and a few tips right now.

So just to clarify buy Warrior Tabi before Transcendence despite buying the morningstar item at the beginning of the game. You need the mobility and power boost as a jungler.

My biggest tip for you all is to start auto attack cancelling. Thor's abilities are really good for this strategy, let me explain a scenario:
- Always auto attack before using your first or third ability as the ability cancels the auto attack animation allowing you to maximise your damage.

Also when using your first ability to initiate make sure to teleport just after the hammer begins coming back to you so that you get the second amount of damage off on your target.

Hope this all works for you and that you have fun with this god.

Remember you're not as strong as Odin, you're stronger.

1) why do you max attunement first before berserker barage?

2) @Bran: Thor combo is 4, basic, 1, basic, 2, basic, 3, basic
You need instant cast for this.
Correct me if im wrong.

Attunement has always been better for poking out enemies and damage, but Berserker was usually maxed first for better camp clear. With the new buff, Attunement is better against camps, making it the preferred option now.

I'd say that you understand his ult combo correctly, and quick or instant casting is most definitely recommended for that.

Got to consider non-ult combos as well. Basics definitely not always weaved between abilities.

Normal combo, I'd say, is 2, 1 double-tap + teleport, 3.

Ult combo, at least coming from this non-Thor player, would probably be 4, 3, 2, 1 double-tap + teleport, then basics.

No one going to mention the Bracer of Undoing relic?

I expect that the generally better relic would be Aegis Amulet, and maybe your biggest issue here is having it shown as an actual part of the build...but is it always bad in every situation?

Against any competent players? Yes. Anti-heal is a prevalent pickup. Maybe in the rarest of cases it could be ok, but the fact that neither Blink Rune or Aegis Amulet is not mentioned is troublesome.

This Thor is too squishy in my opinion

I understand why you would want Hydra's Lament, as Thor makes good use of auto-attack cancelling. However, I think the build could be stronger without it.

For one thing, you are not able to build Spirit Robe or Mantle of Discord without overcapping your CDR, as your core items provide the max 40%.

Additionally, I feel that your build is lacking in penetration until your 6th item where you build Titan's Bane. I would suggest considering things like Heartseeker as a possible alternative to Hydra's Lament.

Agreed. Hydra's Lament is not really an optimal item for him, not just for limiting other functional items that also have CDR, but specifically due to his kit.

Thor, to me, is best used as a straight ability user, with basic attacks thrown in usually only when abilities are down. There are specific considerations to good use out of Hydra's:
  • Channeled abilities need to consider duration. While you're channeling, you're not comboing quickly. Berzerker Barrage is a 2 second channel, which means you're not able to apply the Hydra's passive during that time.

  • What is your normal distance when engaging an enemy? Your initial engage with Thor is often going to be to stun with Tectonic Rift at range. You're not going to easily get a basic in at that point...you'll have to run up to them to do that. That's one ability that you won't be able to combine with a basic well in many cases.

  • How do you chain attacks? Can you quickly weave a basic in between abilities? So, Rift...usually that helps you to easily confirm a double-tap with Mjolnir's Attunement. You either then back off if you were just looking to deal poke damage (in which case you again don't get to utilize Hydra's passive), or you go full in by teleporting to the hammer.

    THEN...do you try to get a basic in, or do you immediately activate Berzerker Barrage? If it's the 2nd case (which is usually best to confirm damage), you're AGAIN not utilizing Hydra's passive.

    Throw the ult in as another consideration, and I'd say again that many times you'll chain dropping on an enemy directly into Barrage.
As such, it just doesn't seem like Thor is a god that can utilize Hydra's that well.

As a different example, consider Ratatoskr or Loki. 2 of 3 abilities are immediate activation with no channeling for the Rat, and those abilities are all meant to allow him to stay close to the enemy. Loki has 3 immediate cast & effect abilities, not counting Decoy. Both can easily weave basics.

And of course, this doesn't consider other assassins that can also do this very well...e.g. Susano and Nemesis.

Thor can work with Hydra's Lament but it is generally better to build him bruiser.
