First build post

Howdy all! this is my first time showing off a build, so I'm starting it with a bang of a build. This build is a highly versatile and very mobile build mixing in high health with a fair share of particularly physical protection. Feel free to leave comments or constructive critiques, anything is great and is much appreciated.

Let's see:
  1. Start with Warrior's Blessing, Round Shield, + healing potions if against a physical opponent. If against a magical one, drop shield for Enchanted Buckler or Talisman. See point 5 for which to buy: buckler for Ancile and talisman for Pestilence.
  2. Swap Berserker's Shield with Gladiator's Shield. Cu isn't a basic attacking warrior, so the later will heal him for more.
  3. In regards to the above point, get rid of The Crusher and Frostbound Hammer because you won't get much use out of either.
  4. Drop Stone of Gaia; glad has enough sustain and stone's only really good if you're up against gods with a knockup like Geb.
  5. You need more situational items, like magical defense against a magical opponent. Also, you should be building your primary defense AFTER glad shield is finished. Get Ancile against non-healers and Pestilence against healers.
  6. Where's Void Shield? It should be built 3rd or 4th after bov/genji/pest.
  7. Bulwark of Hope is a great magical defense item, but I wouldn't buy it against a lane opponent; get it after void.
  8. List Spirit Robe and Mantle of Discord as optional items and drop Magi's Cloak.
  9. Barbed Spear is your primary clear so it should generally be leveled start at one and prioritized. Next is Salmon's Leap, then Spear of Mortal Pain, and finally Vent Anger. Put a point in Vent @ level 3 or 4, then don't touch it again until Spear and Leap are maxed; put a point in your ult when you can.
  10. You really don't need Aegis Amulet or Purification Beads. Get something else like Shield of Thorns, Magic Shell, Heavenly Wings, or Horrific Emblem because they're more team-fight oriented.
  11. Midgardian Mail should be listed as a counter to basic attacking enemies like Artemis, Bellona, Arachne, etc. You should also state that Hide of the Nemean Lion is only for enemies building crit and that it should not be built with Mid. Also, I think Hide conflicts with Spectral Armor, but I'd have to test that.

Beserkers is functional on Cu Chullain but Glad shield is probably better.

Cu's an ability based god and all of the videos I've watched of him the player built glad and not berserker's. He technically has 7 damaging abilities, so that's 7 times glad can process. Besides, glad has slightly better protections and CDR, which Cu likes.
