Introduction

After his recent change to physical I decided to make my own little guide/build for Guan Yu as a bruiser. He has some nice capabilities. His knife attack (in the guide it's still named after the old ability) got a lot stronger, from 15/20/25/30/35 +20% TO 15/25/35/45/55 +25% which is a big attack increase. The ultimate is a lot more fun, but it has a little learning curve, and you have to learn to focus 1 person, because the more you hit the same god, the more damage he will receive, and the if you have to turn around while your in your ult, it's basically the end of your ult, as the horse turns slow and the ult only lasts for 4 seconds. I find it very effective to use while chasing after they leaped, it's basically free hits because your really fast. But you can use your warrior's will and then ult, as they will receive a slow for 2 seconds.

Pros / Cons

Pro's
-Fun ult which can chase and do lots of damage and is a decent escape.
-Nice new look :D
-damage increases all over the place.


Con's
-Little more squishy, nothing terrible though.
-Ult can be a pain sometimes as horsey isn't that quick in turning

your pros are just visual pros why do we want to know that? And His ult isnt "decent" escape its amazing.

And you shouldn't get deaths toll on melee gods in lane especially since hes a BRUISER.

What power are you talking about from witchstone? It no longer gives any.



Sorry, I confused Witch Stone's passive with Ankh of the Bear. Still works.

I agree with the above comment. If you wish this to be a guide, why not add why you picked the things you did and why in that order? Describe to those who are unfamiliar with smite or Guan Yu why these are better for him than other items. Why did you choose your skills in that order?

On another note, try using Grieves over Tabi. With the addition of Witch Stone, the extra defense they provide will make up for the Tabi and provide HP5 along with it (if you choose Reinforced over Plated you also get more movement). Because of your items, Witch Stones passive gives 24 power, and at level 20, Guans passive defense along with the items gives 35 power. The only thing you will lose out on is the 9% attack speed and a slower build of power early game. Maybe you can even sell your Tabi late game for Grieves if you are an aggressive player and plan to harass a lot.

On thing I've been thinking of is the importance movement speed might be on Guan Yu. His ultimate now benefits from the extra speed needed to chase down fleeing gods and initiate in the span of only 4 seconds. The faster you can close the gap, the better, but not at the cost of defense or power (why I like Witch Stone so much on him and why I mentioned Reinforced Grieves).

What power are you talking about from witchstone? It no longer gives any.

In any case - what on earth is the deal with your skill order? It looks...random. When it comes down to it, it just looks 100% random.

It also has no reasoning for the items, no skill descriptions, no anything. You have basically told us that he was reworked, and what you build. No supporting details, no anything.

I like the build. That's it.

I ask that you not post a guide just to show off the build. It shows no effort.

What I am reading here is that you are basically telling us what changes have happened to Guan Yu. Honestly, it's useless info.

If you're going to make a guide, MAKE A GUIDE! Show us gameplay tips, show us why you picked those items, and show us that you know the God. Currently, you've shown that you know little.
