Aphrodite blows a kiss to an allied god, making them her soul mate and giving them both increased movement speed. If it hits an ally, it has a reduced 1s cooldown.

Item Explaination

This build is aimed towards games modes outside of conquest and is best used in modes such as Slash. The build builds towards a total of 50% cdr with high sustain and tankyness.

The Alternate Timeline This item allows Aphrodite to play hyper aggressive and be a super annoyance to the enemy team. Since this build will make her very tanky, it will be hard to kill her. Should they manage to kill you? They can do it all over again due to the passive of The Alternate Timeline. You will most likely have your abilities up again by the time you are revived and you can just stun them/use Back Off! and heal your self to full while running away at high speed due to Breastplate of Regrowth. A must have item!.

Prophetic Cloak This will be your first item and it is one of the best defensive items you can buy. It has everything Aphrodite could ever want. it gives her another 10% CDR and a bunch of defense stats once fully stacked.

Talisman of Energy This next item almost solves all your mana problems you could have early game due to the massive MP5 it has at full stacks (which it almost always is in slash) . The item also gives her even more movementspeed and magic defense.

Breastplate of Regrowth After your magical defense item its time to get more physical protection. This item is almost made for you as it provides you with bonus movementspeed for healing yourself. So combine this with your passive from Kiss + the movementspeed from Talisman of Energy and you will be zooming around the map and hard to catch. On top of that it gives you 10% cdr which helps your endgoal of this build.

Rod of Asclepius At this point in the game the enemy will most likely have build some form of antihealing against you. This item helps her with dealing with that. It also provides her with another 10% cdr. The extra health is also very good for Aphrodite as shes a very squishy god in terms of base health. The power is also nice to have

Sphinx's Baubles With the new patch 11.3 this item has no more healing and protection reduction! This will make you so much more viable. More heals , lower cooldown on your ult and overal just a perfect item to top of your build.

Pros / Cons

  • Very high sustain with Love Birds
  • Easy to land ranged stun
  • Very hard to kill with Undying Love
  • Shares all of her benefits with a team mate due to Kiss
  • Can mitigate high damage ults with Undying Love
  • can amplify damage of her allies with Kiss
  • Anti healing does impact her usefulness a bit
  • Basic attacks are pretty garbage
  • relatively low damage with this build
  • Love Birds is easy to avoid if the enemy is not cc'd
  • reliant on her team to play around her

You only have 40% cooldown so why Baubles?
DV-8 (35) | March 23, 2024 12:54pm
10 - Timeline/Sands
10 - Prophetic
10 - Regrowth
10 - Asclepius
10 - Bauble
= 50
PichuGotNerf | March 24, 2024 12:35am
Oh thanks
PichuGotNerf | March 22, 2024 11:05pm
I would go breastplate of valor over Regrowth or go the build you have and pick the other starter upgrade or just go something else than baubles
Farthus (11) | March 26, 2024 2:01am
Well yeah if you really want the other starter upgrade that is. But this build has timeline for a reason and I feel like it makes more sense on her than the more damage oriented upgrade. Of course you could build her in many ways, this is just a way that I like to play her :)

Or could just swap Talisman for Genjis
