Shell first, as it is just awesome for saving your carry, Horrific if you constantly need to chase down kills, Belt if your team is already melting, Ankh if enemy has tons of healing. Thorns if you know how to time them.
NEVER USE Meditation Cloak SINCE IT TAKES UP A SLOT FOR A MORE USEFUL RELIC.
Sovereignty can be switched to adapt, Switch Shield for Relic Dagger if you like spamming relics.
Sovereignty can be switched to adapt ( Contagion is nice if you don´t want to replace Shogun's Kusari for anti heal, Emperor's Armor if you´re getting pushed too much, Midgardian Mail if enemy ADC is melting you early), Shogun's Kusari can be replaced by Pestilence, Witchblade replaces Relic Dagger if enemy ADC is still melting.
This is my first guide, so any and all constructive criticism and feedback is welcome.
I see Fafnir as the ultimate hybrid support. He is highly reliant on his abilities, so CDR is vital for any build.
His 1 Cursed Strength is a reliable stun with good damage (if you manage to land it), his 2 Coerce helps your adc melt with increased attack speed and a small damage buff, and your 3 Underhanded Tactics is probably the best escape in the game.
And that´s just normal Fafnir. With his 4 Dragonic Corruption, you become an absolute beast with crazy CC, damage, and an even better escape.
Fafnir is highly dependent on his abilities even during his ultimate, so this is probably the most important part of the guide.
An important note is that Fafnir´s abilities have added effects during his ultimate.
Leveling priority is 4, 1, 2 and 3.
You could go for a regular tank build, but Fafnir allows for a bit more flexibility. The items are focused around being tanky, supporting allies, applying CC on enemies and dealing solid damage.
Boots of Meditation are useful because of CDR and the mana boost.
Gauntlet of Thebes is just one of the best support items in the game.
Sovereignty is good for health sustain and physical defense aura. You could replace it with Breastplate of Valor if you want early CDR and mana sustain, though the rest of the items set those up a little later.
Shogun's Kusari is excellent because it boosts your Coerce attack speed, a 10% CDR, 20% CCR with good magical defense. If you need anti heal, replace it with Pestilence, as its magical defense and hp stats make it worth replacing. Chrono's Pendant is what´s gonna make Fafnir damage viable even out of dragon form. Besides the damage and mp5, it has a solid 20% CDR and its passive helps you abuse your abilities even more often.
Gem of Isolation makes you even more annoying, with more magical damage, health and 20% slow for your abilities.
Shield of Regrowth makes you zoom around the map, either to reach the frontline easier or to escape faster. the bonus hp5 and mp5 aren´t bad at all.
Relic Dagger could be the last item, or you could replace it for Shield of Regrowth earlier if you like spamming relics.
Remember that smite is all about the counter builds, especially as a support. However, this build is pretty solid for most situations.
Coming soon to a cinema near you.
