Final Build Example Notes Standard Build for a Ratatoskr solo. The last item is totally situational, in this case I chose Magi's Cloak to avoid hard cc.

Her main damage source can be avoided by just walking away. Just be careful with her ultimate. Try to force it before go to a final strike (a tower dive for example). ) [2] => Array ( [god] => Array ( [god_id] => 90 [display_name] => Artio [url] => artio ) [scoreVal] => 4 [notes] => [[Ancile]] is a must item when fighting against her. Although she is annoying to fight is not too difficult since she do not have a high damage early game and his skills can be countered by [[ancile]]. ) [3] => Array ( [god] => Array ( [god_id] => 14 [display_name] => Guan Yu [url] => guan-yu ) [scoreVal] => 4 [notes] => Hard to kill but easy to put pressure. Avoid his ultimate using your or dashing away. Remember his ultimate does a lot of damage if he hits all attacks so, be careful. ) [4] => Array ( [god] => Array ( [god_id] => 10 [display_name] => Hel [url] => hel ) [scoreVal] => 4 [notes] => She has a good damage but she need to get close of the wave to clear it, so you can attack her easily.

Extremely annoying. Avoid his ulti with yours and dash away from his root. Try to avoid his 2 to don't heal him. Remember that if he hits his 1, he will decrease your attack speed and damage (why? I don't know why a mage does that but, he does). "Every nerf on him makes him need more nerfs". ) [1] => Array ( [god] => Array ( [god_id] => 63 [display_name] => Bellona [url] => bellona ) [scoreVal] => 3 [notes] => Bellona is a freaking horse at early game. Avoid fighting without [[gladiator's shield]] or some defenses and you will be ok. Just try to avoid being pressured by her and is more than enough. ) [2] => Array ( [god] => Array ( [god_id] => 93 [display_name] => Cerberus [url] => cerberus ) [scoreVal] => 3 [notes] => He steals your healing so be careful, heal yourself far from him.

You both have damage early game. You will not be able to put pressure but at least you won't will suffer. Remember that your ultimate makes you immune to cc, so you can cancel his silence/slow, but you take the damage anyway. [[Gladiator's shield]] here is essential to heal yourself. ) [4] => Array ( [god] => Array ( [god_id] => 35 [display_name] => Fenrir [url] => fenrir ) [scoreVal] => 3 [notes] => Take a beads or use your ultimate when he uses his ultimate. Your [[acorn blast]] can stop his [[brutalize]]. Just be careful with his jump that stuns and when he upgrade his basics with his 2. ) [5] => Array ( [god] => Array ( [god_id] => 3 [display_name] => Hades [url] => hades ) [scoreVal] => 3 [notes] => Very strong wave clear. Since you won't have physical protections until mid game, be careful with the minions. Avoid his silence and escape of his ulti with your dash/ultimate. ) [6] => Array ( [god] => Array ( [god_id] => 9 [display_name] => Sobek [url] => sobek ) [scoreVal] => 3 [notes] => Avoid stay close to his tower and be careful with his ulti that you can't avoid easily.

Avoid his paper and be careful with his ultimate, he gains double protections. ) ) [major] => Array ( [0] => Array ( [god] => Array ( [god_id] => 89 [display_name] => Cu Chulainn [url] => cu-chulainn ) [scoreVal] => 2 [notes] => A tough guy for you. Be careful with his anti-healing with his 1 and his transformation. DO NOT FIGHT WHEN HE IS A MONSTER, mainly on early game or you will die. ) [1] => Array ( [god] => Array ( [god_id] => 78 [display_name] => Erlang Shen [url] => erlang-shen ) [scoreVal] => 2 [notes] => Very difficult to play with him. His CCs and high damage makes a difficult battle to your side try to play more passive. ) [2] => Array ( [god] => Array ( [god_id] => 28 [display_name] => Hercules [url] => hercules ) [scoreVal] => 2 [notes] => His knockup and dash with a stun will put you in serious problems if you get too close of his tower. Try to play a little passive against this guy and due the healing he has, killing he will probably be almost impossible. ) [3] => Array ( [god] => Array ( [god_id] => 85 [display_name] => Kuzenbo [url] => kuzenbo ) [scoreVal] => 2 [notes] => Hard CCs, high base damage with his 3rd skils and when he get 30% CDR or more, it's impossible to you win a 1 vs 1 fight. ) ) [tiny] => Array ( [0] => Array ( [god] => Array ( [god_id] => 72 [display_name] => Amaterasu [url] => amaterasu ) [scoreVal] => 5 [notes] => Her high speed and heal will make kill her a hard task but her kit has nothing that can be a really problem to you, although her ultimate will be something annoying to deal with. ) [1] => Array ( [god] => Array ( [god_id] => 83 [display_name] => Nike [url] => nike ) [scoreVal] => 5 [notes] => She has a bad kit that has no problems to you. The only thing that can be a problem is her ultimate, [[sentinel of zeus]] that provide a ridiculous shield, saving her life most times. ) ) [extreme] => Array ( [0] => Array ( [god] => Array ( [god_id] => 40 [display_name] => Chang'e [url] => change ) [scoreVal] => 1 [notes] => High damage, high healing, can easily avoid your attacks with her 2. Chang'e is a counter of a solo ratatoskr in my opinion. Play safe against her in any circumstance. ) [1] => Array ( [god] => Array ( [god_id] => 12 [display_name] => Ymir [url] => ymir ) [scoreVal] => 1 [notes] => High CC and High damage. Fight against an Ymir is a true hel. Just accept that you lost the lane and play safe to stay alive. ) ) ) 1

Final Considerations


"Hey! Keep your eyes off my nuts!" - Ratatoskr

Art by Andantonius via DeviantArt

My conclusion is that Rat is working very good at solo lane (An A+ solo laner), and still a good character at jungle (an A to A+ jungler) and can be a very fun character to play in both roles.

Following the quick guide I posted here you will do a nice job with him in both roles.

Ratatoskr just want to ask to hirez...

If you have doubt about a solo rat, see this!

I love how in depth this guide is. Really helped me a lot. Just one question. Why a trans on damage build? Why not rush into a jotunns, then hydras, crusher, bloodforged, and maybe then a spirit robe for late game, then possible titans after you sell acorn?

Just curious because thats how I've been doing the high damage if I'm just trashing people.

First of all, hello xCudz, I'm glad that it helped you.

Now to your question: Why rush trans on a full damage build? By saying this, I'm assuming you are talking about my jungle "full damage build example", correct me if I'm wrong.

Why trans first? Well, you are a Ratatoskr so you won't miss any damage early game by doing trans. When it is finished, you will have a lot of mana, keeping you more time in the jungle, farming, and letting you use and abuse of your skills, plus, trans gives A LOT OF POWER when fully stacked, so you will become literally a beast mid game. Then I go to Hydra's to enhance the burst power and jotuns to get full cooldown. As said in the notes of this build, the objective is just build a full power rat, if you wanna some bruiser rat (that I personally recommend), you can check the other builds, including the standard build.

Your suggestions are also fine, although I would get TB before spirit robe.

I prefer the bruiser void + ancile build that you have, unless my team is just trashing people. I was just curious. Thanks!

Gary169 (7) | November 25, 2018 11:18am
Because the god is Ratatoskr. He uses Acorn of Yggdrasil instead of boots. Sort of like his unique ability.

Branmuffin17 (263) | November 19, 2018 12:36pm
Congrats on the new guide. Looks great. Some comments:
  • In your build example writeups, you may think about discussing the specific merits of your item choices in those examples. For instance, your 2 tank builds start with Breastplate of Valor, which is obviously for facing physical Solos...but the other part here is that you start out with high CDR, which might allow you to change your gameplay up a bit. But you don't talk about the early CDR at all. That's just one example.

    Other choices are definitely situational, but your Extreme example has both Pest for anti-heal, and Midgardian for anti-basic attack. Fine examples, but only if you're facing multiple basic attackers, for example, and the Support doesn't get Pest themselves.

  • Your Jungle alt build example 2 overcaps CDR...just FYI.

  • In your ability chapter, your blue grammar "This skill resets Dart cooldown in 1 second" makes it sound like you use the ability, and Dart becomes available in 1 second. Obviously that's not the case. The statement you want to use is "This skill reduces Dart's cooldown by 1 second."

  • Feel you should offer an example of skill leveling. It's fine that you describe in the writeup, but quick reference at the top is important.

  • Spoilers within spoilers don't work, unfortunately. Suggest getting rid of those as it just adds clutter.

  • Since Rat's strength is in early-mid, you may consider talking about trying to steal farm in those sections of the game. Would allow you to place some aggressive wards as well.

Okay, now that I'm on a PC I can properly reply you.

First of all, thanks to your feedback, it is always welcome. VER = "You rock!" or as Ratatoskr would say "You are stronger than I heard"!
  • About the build explanations I will redo it asap talking more specifically but I don't want to be long :p
  • About the farming, I will think where I can put it and what I can say about it.
  • And the rest I already did it.

Thanks to your feedback!

Your solo final build example would actually be a decent jungle build.
