Item Purchase Order

Passive Exploit
?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.

Vamana: The Size of the Dog in the Fight (Arena/Clash)

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

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.
