Extended Build

When to play Cern support

This build is mostly a build for Joust, Arena and Assault game modes. It's very fun to try out. Do keep in mind that this build is made for situations where you have multiple attack speed gods on your team,as this build was made for it.

Goal of this build

The core of this buils is the Frostbound Hammer and the Executioner. As you will use the Winter stance and Fall stance exclusively, this build is made to synergize with these items. With Frostbound Hammer (15% slow) and the Winter stance (15% slow) you'll have a constant slow on the enemy. Which will make it very difficult to run away. Which in addition to the Runeforged and the Executioner (which will provide pen), you'll be able to support your team. The Shogun's and the Hunter's Cowl is made for the other attack speed based gods in your team, which will make it easier for them to do damage as well. Griffonwing Earrings is put in this build because it'll make it easier to hit the enemies with the slows with the extra projectile speed. As the Heavy Executioner will cap your attack speed at 1.75 anyway, the attackspeed loss you get from the Griffonwing Earrings is inconsequential.

This build works wonders! especially in combination with Baron Samedi! It is quite difficult to pull off, but once you do it feels incredible!
