Early ability levelling in Solo lane: At level 3 you can either put your first point into Radiant Glory if you're getting poked, otherwise put a second point into Shield of Achilles and get your first point in Radiant Glory at level 4.

Solo: Use no-armour stance early on, you can choose to switch to armour stance around mid game (perhaps in a more bruiser-ish build) to late game, or when you have Heartseeker.

Jungle: Use no-armour stance until near lategame when you have like 4-5 items online, then you can choose to switch to armor OR you can keep no-armour stance on.

Support: Same as Solo.

hey Kriega,

Would you have any suggestions for arena. I have used a couple of your builds and/or modified for arena and while I am off to a decent start with him overall, i am struggling to get over 20k damage most of the time. I don't want to give up too much defense but at the same time with his passive i probably have the freedom to build more aggressively to a degree with him.

Builds I have had some success with are as follows

Warrior Tabi The Sledge Gauntlet of Thebes Void Shield Oni Hunter's Garb was going to finish out with Caduceus Shield or go with your final item for that one Mantle of Discord but the match ended early.

Warrior Tabi Blackthorn Hammer Breastplate of Valor Ancile The Sledge Serrated Edge

Gladiator's Shield Warrior Tabi Blackthorn Hammer Ancile Bulwark of Hope Heartseeker

Gladiator's Shield Warrior Tabi Soul Eater Genji's Guard The Sledge Heartseeker

Warrior Tabi Blackthorn Hammer Hide of the Nemean Lion(situational--and i know after the next round of changes it will need to be built later) Genji's Guard The Sledge Heartseeker

Gladiator's Shield Warrior Tabi The Sledge Ancile Pridwen Serrated Edge

Warrior Tabi Runic Shield Blackthorn Hammer Hydra's Lament The Sledge Caduceus Shield

Well I don't know if the issue here is a build one or if it's something else (like if you know how to use his AA cancels efficiently, which is pretty much the only part of him that takes some skill to do as otherwise he is a very simple and straightforward god). Also I need to remove Blackthorn from my listed items it's just outclassed by Sledge there's no reason to build it.

Also builds will vary on if you want to go for a more bruiser / tanky frontliner playstyle or you want to build more like an assassin (relying on others for frontlining / engage so you can blink occasionally unless you're in a 1 vs 1 scenario you know you can win). Basically playing like a typical Warrior (Though one that is more focused on damage / executes than team setup) vs playing like a Assassin.

I'd say as a generic build path for arena, i'd go something like Warrior Tabi > Soul Eater > The Sledge > Void Shield > Ancile / Genji's Guard > Mantle of Discord / Heartseeker for a bruiser build.

Or,

Warrior Tabi > The Sledge > Void Shield > Runic Shield / Ancile > Spirit Robe / Pridwen > Mantle of Discord.

For damage i'd go Warrior Tabi > The Crusher / Brawler's Beat Stick > Hydra's Lament > The Sledge / Void Shield > Heartseeker > Bloodforge.

The AA cancel thing is something I would admit to still being ignorant about. I don't think many of the gods i use utilize it since i don't see it talked about much on the guides i've typically lurked around when trying out new gods. I think i have seen it mentioned with Thanatos and maybe a couple of other gods but never really have seen it explained out.

Part of the issue has been getting the timing down and the aim on his Combat Dodge and Fatal Strike. I was kind of hampered with that yesterday due to some lag/game issues last night but overall i have started to get it. I lucked out my first night playing him on an 0-4 start and got 4 executes in a row. Not gonna lie, that was one of my favorite Smite moments so far. lol.


On the blackthorn i figured it would still be useful when i was trying to keep more cdr while still giving some health.

In arena I usually try to go for bruiser type builds on my Warriors. I want to have my defense but be able to dish out damage too. I try to only have 1 or maybe 2 defensive only items and then supplement with 1-3 hybrid defense/sustain/power items and 1-2 power/pen items.

I really have only noticed one god who tears me up about any time(sure more will pop up lol} and that is Skadi.

I will definitely give those build suggestions a try.

Kriega,

For all of these build groupings you do, I have one suggestion. You throw out multiple builds (all of which are solid and very functional), but people looking at these builds are looking at them because they need some direction or are looking for better builds than what they currently use.

To that end, maybe a quick note of WHY you would use the specific build would be helpful. I know you're pumping these builds out and don't want to take much time in explanation, but just a bit would be nice.
