Extended Build

All 3 builds routes are exactly the same, there are obviously some reasons why Im not using items like Chronos Pendant nor Spear of the Magus/Obsidian Shard with this build IF Pos has his ult hes most likely always getting a kill or getting relics, but with the amount of time i play Poseidon if there is no power behind the Ult or abilities Poseidon just can not compete with these Meta gods for S8 Global ults are huge Rotations & Survivability Impact so much especially Early when Poseidon is the most Vulnerable with Rod being built fresh out the gate once boots is finished your forfeiting Cooldowns but your playing Poseidon for the Late Game but Spear of Desolation passive can reduce the Need for Cooldown with getting assists/kills unless Divine is needed even then after Divine Building Typhons is a Necessity heres why. One Provides 100 power, Two Sustain with a bonus of extra healing, lastly the 200 Mana & 10% Pen are Stats that are needed in this 4th item Stage. Myrrdin provides Bonus Burst after Ult or Spam 2 & 3 for a speedy get away then a nice cripple. The Starter Only Effects your Early Game So Find the Best Start for you & Good Luck🤙
