Sooo... here it is my Vamana guide. He is probably the least played god this season, why? Because sprint happend that's why. BUTBUTBUTUBUT!!! he's still super strong when played correctly and i am going to show you how!

PS. He's my favorite ranked god. XD


Alright, his kit. Pretty strong but here's a quick overview

1st Ability - 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.

Damage:70/110/150/190/230 (+60% of your physical power) Ability Type: Line
Cooldown: 15 seconds Cost: 70/75/80/85/90 mana

2nd Ability - Armored Umbrella (Main DMG)

Vamana infuses his umbrella with his armor, reinforcing it while he strikes forth, doing damage to all enemies in a cone.

Damage: 85/140/195/250/305 (+100% of your physical power) Ability Type: Cone
Cooldown: 15/14/13/12/11 seconds Bullet.png Cost: 60/70/80/90/100 mana

3rd Ability - Umbrellarang (lolwat)

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.

How to use your skills.

K so you know how he used his ult+sprint to rek the enemy team. NOPENOPENOPENOPE
That's nerfed and now it is unuseable, great thanks hi-rez. No problem though! Vamana's damage with his 2 is insane (100% scaling!!) and can easily close gaps between you and the enemy with his 1. So make sure you max your 2 first for the damage and lane clear, it's also a pretty good poking ability. Use your 3 and one to close the gaps between you and enemies. And last but not least, use your ultimate for sustain NOT FOR DAMAGE MMKAY?!


Ahhh lets buy sprint... oh wait it's **** that's right!

Nah don't buy sprint it sucks and don't go attack speed neither. What you should do is utilize your passive with the iteams you're buying. Two builds are avalible and these are pretty flexpick-ish because you can remove and add an item that suits your playstyle.


Build uno DAMAGE YO:
1 Warrior Tabi
2 Breastplate of Valor/Transcendence
3 Runeforged Hammer
4 Heartward Amulet/Stone of Gaia
5 Shifters Shield
6 Johohotuns wrath

Damage will be through the roof but, you're pretty damn squishy.


1 Warrior tabi
2/6 Breastplate of Valor
3 Runeforged Hammer
4 Heartward Amulet/ Stone of Gaia
5 Heartward Amulet/ Stone of Gaia
6/2 Mail of Renewal

You should be able to harass the enemy team with this build

That's it? Yep

Vamana's damage, cc and tanky-ness make him very strong as a warrior. He can fight a team fight, heal up real quick and join the fight again. His knockup on his 1 into his 3 can setup for the team and his laning phase is probably the easiest laning phase you ever experienced. Just clear the wave and poke your enemy out.

I hope you try this build and learned from the stuff i said, i'd like to see some more Vamana's because he's still pretty viable.

Pretty good guide.

I've been trying a few variants, and Shield of the Underworld works pretty great as well (when you engage with your ultimate during team fights late game).
Frostbound Hammer is a really valid option for that matter.
As Heartward Amulet will be smally nerfed in next patch, Stone of Gaia can be a valid option as well.

I think heartward is still good with Vamana against physical teams. It also gives a bit more mp5 and you really need that when playing him. But if they have 3/4 magical gods, you can pick Stone of Gaia because both items work great with Vamana.

Hey am comming for sharing my feedback.

I just play one conquest on solo lane and yeah build work really hard i do 29-5-22 and 59 k dammage for 45 minute. I literally carry i kill Pheonix and minotaur solo with incredible easyness !

Am gonna try another conquest game because i want good opinion.

My vamana is rank 10 since one year i stop to play him cus of nerf sprint but now i think am gonna replay him with this awesome build, cooldown work really nice on vam seriously ! And the mana buff of Breastplate is pretty nice. So in lane when you have your breastplate you can spamm ult for regen this is awesome!

(sorry for my english i learn in this game ^^)
