What started off as a weird experimental build back in my "Arena main" days has become my main go-to Jungler build with Thor. He was a god I REALLY wanted to learn how to play well, but I my issue was that I'd die too easily in the thick of the battle. So I thought "why not build some defense?", but I also didn't want to sacrifice too much power for the sake of defense. So I decided to build transcendence. This build works off of the principle that transcendence converts your maximum mana into power, so I picked my two favorite defense items (Breastplate of Valor and Hide of the Urchin), which both add strong defensive stats as well as mana (a total of 550 between both items), and then an additional 150 mana from Jotunn's wrath, which total out to 700 additional mana which means 21 additional physical power, which doesn't seem like much, but once Trans and urchin is fully stacked, and all items are built, thor will have around 250 physical power and close to 200 physical defense and 150 magical defense.
I know it seems finicky and probably better builds exist, but I have only lost about 3 games with this build (out of 12) and one of them was due to disconnect. It also works for me so meh.
High damage both early and late game
High defense late game
Strong teamfight presence
Slow movement early game
May be ridiculed for building stacks as jungler
