Hello I've been using a few of you guys builds for a couple years and you most recent, I only play Arena even though most you guys builds are for Conquest but some have different builds I find useful in Arena and your Sustain Build is perfect, I used many others and they sucked in Arena but this one gives a great balance and I fond myself being the biggest threat on the team mid game, even though we lost none of them could 1 v 1 me not even their Guardian and I could escape without much damage before end game but we had a feeder on our team 👎

Will await a full writeup (but I'll await the proper tuning of this god more).

Just for ease of reading without having to hover over the notes, suggest titling the various build boxes a bit better. For example, "Start 2 (Skip Starter)" and "Start 3 (Anti-Heal Starter)." Things like that.

Perhaps. Might have to be something to revise and add to all of my guides for consistency. I don't expect to keep all of these though, in the coming weeks I think there will be a solid build after seeing more pros play him and such.
