Passive Exploit Notes This build focuses primarily on using Vamana's passive to build up protections and physical power at the same time. This means it will heavily favor physical defense. Build order is flexible, but I like to get the stacks on Urchin quick, and then get the CDR from the Beastplate. The Mystical Mail gives you free assists for being near enemies that your teammates kill even if you didn't land a hit, but I imagine most would recommend a Sovreign or Midgardian which can be swapped in late game. The MoD gives a boost to magical protection since this build is pretty unbalanced at this point, and then Frostbound is helpful for enemies trying to escape.

Introduction to Vamana

Vamana is physical melee warrior with an excellent passive ability to counter physical damaging enemies. Effective use of his abilities allows for considerable burst damage and opponent movement interrupts. Vamana's Clear the Path has both an offensive aspect and an escape aspect, but can be interrupted or negate by enemy abilities (i.e. Odin's Ult, Poseidon's whirlpool). This build guide focuses on Vamana's role in an Arena/Clash mode with team support. I have not tested these builds on Vamana in a solo capacity.

Vamana's offensive combo typically proceeds in the form:
Umbrellarang -> Clear the Path -> Armored Umbrella

The combo above is excellent for catching enemy gods unaware and disrupting their formation. Additionally it sets up Vamana's Colossal Fury, by putting him in melee range of enemies; however, using Clear the Path to enter the fray will mean it is unavailable as an escape maneuver.

Skills

SLEEPING GIANT
A percentage of Vamana's Physical Protection is converted to Physical Power.

Physical Protection Conversion: 20%
CLEAR THE PATH
Vamana opens his umbrella in front of him and sprints forward, doing damage to all enemies and knocking them into the air.

ARMORED UMBRELLA

Cooldown: 15/14/13/12/11 seconds
Mana Cost: 60/65/70/75/80
UMBRELLARANG
Vamana spins an umbrella out in front of him, hitting everyone in its path for damage and slowing your enemies' attack and movement speeds. After reaching its destination, the umbrella returns back to Vamana, hitting everyone in its path again.

Pros / Cons

Pros:
-High Defense
-Moderate Sustain
-Moderate Damage
-Interrupts/Crowd Control

Cons:
-Sustain limited by Ult cooldown
-Limited escape
-Movement speed is very low in Ult

Summary

Vamana is a very useful offensive support god. His ability to interrupt enemy abilities and movement with Clear the Path and the slow effect of his Umbrellarang make him excellent for preventing enemies from escape. He can also absorb a significant amount of damage depending on the build and dish out a reasonable amount for a warrior. Early-game is a critical time to use Vamana in a support capacity as his abilities don't really blossom until late-game. By mid-game his defensive build should be nearly complete and you can play a bit more aggressively, but he shines in late-game.

Hi Sephious,

I have no problem with your general build. Items typically make sense, and you get a lot of control out of Frostbound Hammer (since you don't have all that much in the rest of your kit).

A couple of comments:
  • In a teamfight mode where you don't need to worry all that much about wave clear, you might consider leveling Armored Umbrella first. The wide, immediate AOE damage is going to be easier to confirm than getting 2 hits (up and back) on Umbrellarang. I absolutely know the 'rang is better for things like Solo lane wave clear, but find it a little on the slow side for a teamfight.

  • Think you may not have noticed, but you don't actually need to get any hits in on an enemy in a mode like Arena. Just being semi-close gives you the assist. If you don't believe me, test it out. As such, Mystical Mail (which is also pretty expensive) isn't all that needed in my opinion. Not that it's not a decent item, as it provides a good amount of health, but I think you might be better served by getting a different item. Consider rushing Frostbound Hammer over it, or go for Midgardian Mail in this position. Or, if you need more magical protections at this point, get that Mantle of Discord earlier. (I know you're looking to maximize his passive function, but you might also just consider a magical protection item like Genji's Guard or Ancile or something)
