Build Summary

Core

Notes You will want to start with WAR FLAG so that you can survive longer in the lane.

After that you should work towards the SHOES OF FOCUS so you can get that *10% Cooldown Reduction.

The next staple is going to be grabbing the GAUNTLET OF THEBES for the immediate Health and HPS. Once this item is evolved we get +50 Magical/Physical Protections and start building our Aura Stack.

Ares passive thrives on Auras. Each completed Aura item that Ares owns will grant him +30 Magical Power, so we want to build those next.

Extended Build

Next

Notes Our next items are really dealers choice and depend on who you are facing, but this is what I usually run with more or less.

SHOGUN'S KUSARI will give us MORE COOLDOWN as well as give us another Aura that helps our Carry, as well as other teammates, by boosting their attack speed by +25%.

SOVEREIGNTY gives us another Aura that helps us keep our team alive longer by providing them +15 Physical Protections and +35 HPS.

Ares & Relic Dagger are like Peanut butter and Jam, if you're going Blink on ares then I feel like dagger should be in this build somewhere. Or at least listed as a situational.

Good call! I think it's situational. I was trying to really stack those Auras though to really take advantage of his passive. Buuut I will throw that in the situational area because there are times where I really just need my blink and it has like 15 seconds left on cooldown. Thanks!
