Well met, welcome to the manliest guide for the manliest god. This will give you an in-depth look at Ravana and will teach you how to:
-box better than Mike Tyson
-be manlier than the likes of even Hercules
-punch everyone into submission with your fists of fury
-show Mercury how it's really done
-get all of the ladies
-defeat that loser Rama
-grow a glorious mustache almost as glorious as Ravana's himself
Ravana is a physical fisticuffs god, meaning he punches everything. If you have played Osiris or Arachne, you will have some idea of how this god plays. He is a very up front, in your face fighter and doesn't take anything from anyone. He functions like a tanky assassin in that he is very good at dealing damage to a single target. Most of the time you will be trying to get 1v1 duels with Ravana and only initiating the fight if you are building defense items. He is a very fun god to play, and by the end of this he will make a man out of you.

*This is a guide for teaching you how Ravana works. I am not going over specific strategies for game modes such as conquest.

- Great sustained damage -
- Ult is useful for dealing with the squishies in a teamfight -

- Excels in 1 on 1 combat -
- His mustache -
- He has an immunity to damage and CC -
- Roots and slows galore means sissies can't run away -
- Sticks to gods well -

- Sissies can't run from you, but they can still jump away -
- Without cooldown items your cooldowns are long -
- Without ult, Ravana functions poorly in group fights -

Successful hits from Basic Attacks or abilities increase Ravana’s Combo Chain. Each time his Combo Chain reaches 8, he receives a Shield equal to 5% of his maximum Health. This may stack up to 3 times. This passive is beautiful at boxing, and with lifesteal can make you nigh unkillable.
Overhead Kick Kicks a shockwave in a straight line causing damage, and also making him immune to damage and CC. This is what maxes you a threat to burst mages such as Ah Puch. It's arguably your most valuable skill and if you are having trouble against bursty gods, maxing this second wouldn't be a bad idea.
10-Hand Shadow Fist This ability damages and roots a single god while healing for each enemy hit. The initial heal is 15 per unit hit and goes up to 75 at max rank. This is your main lane clear and is great for stopping people dead in their tracks.
Mystic Rush Similar to Loki's Assassinate, Ravana dashes to the target area, knocking aside all enemys in his path and dealing damage. When Mysic Rush hits it's target area, it gives damage reduction (40-60%) against enemies at the target zone. This is Ravana's main initiation, gap closer, and escape. What makes this skill incredibly useful is it's ability to get Ravana to the squishies hiding in the back of team fights, allowing you to focus them down without too much concern for anything else. Keep in mind this functions as a dash, you cannot go though walls.
Many people have been confused as to what Ravana should be built with. Some of the pros are saying power, some are saying attack speed. While both work, what I have found to work nicely is a combination of both attack speed and power, leaning a bit more on the power side. Having power is important in my eyes, but without any attack speed items your Qins Sais is going to be rather ineffective comparatively and your passive won't be filling up nicely. So now I will be going into depth about the rather numerous items I selected in the builds. I will be covering them all, so if it is TL;DR just look for the section and item you are curious about. Color code: blue = highly recommended, practically must haves and fits Ravana very well. green = viable item, could be swapped in for any blue and generally work. orange = situational items. These items can be substituted in based on need but generally will not be used. red = Bad item, would not build
*Also keep in mind that all the builds I made at the top are fluid. You can mix/match them any way you like, they are just presets, if you will.
This part is a work in progress (eewwww I know). If I have continuous good match ups against a certain God or I keep getting pooped on by a God, I will be sure to add it below. Also if you (the reader) know of any match ups, good or bad, you can comment them and I will add it to the list.
Ravana is a very fun god to play. He can deal high damage but in return he can be easy to counter. He is a man's man and one of my favorite guides.This guide is my first and a work in progress, please be gentle Senpai. Hope this guide put some hair on your chest and gave you a better understanding of this magnificent creature.
