The Best Bruiser Support Build

Notes This build has 5 Aura items. Thanks to Ares's passive, he will get 150 magical power from the them. The Pythagorem's Piece item is insane on Ares. This item gives the most aggressive and highest damage gaurdian 100 Magical power, 24% magical lifesteal, 10% magical penatration, and 200 health. Since Ares does a lot of damage with this item, you will get even more out of the life steal. Your team will also get extra lifesteal and power too, so it is just a really great item to get on Ares. You will also have almost max protections. If you use your 2 you will have max or nearly max protections.
