This looks great so far, I don't think it was intentional but there isn't an item after the Elixir of Speed for the Physical Defence build, just letting you know if you didn't spot it.

The new builds look a lot better, Atm playing support you can go with a lot of different builds depending on playstyle.

Best thing to do for a support is to start with boots like you did. Other starting options are Glowing Emerald (some more health in the early stage of laning), Iron Mail (double physical enemy duo lane) or Talisman (double magical). Usually you will pick up health potions and multi potions to help you sustain. blink is good if you plan to be aggressive and can win the lane, otherwise starting shell is recommended (blink is the relic you want would you potentially need another relic you can grab that one instead of shell).

In most cases you will look to finish boots first as you will be looking to rotate for ganking mid. Most common boots pickups are
  • Shoes of Focus to use your abilities more. Usually the most common choice
  • Traveler's Shoes if planning to go rotate heavy.
  • Reinforced Shoes If you want to be tanky fast or start with an item that will not provide protections like blink dagger.

If you plan on staying in duo longer finishing your first aura item is an option before you finish boots, otherwise you will finish it after. Usually you will be looking at the all the gods in the opponents team and more closely to the duo lane, jungler, and mid lane.
Usual pickups are:
  • Stone of Binding if you plan on going for a super aggressive early game.
  • Sovereignty if their duo lane-jungler-mid combo is physical heavy. (usually makes the whole team physical heavy)
  • Heartward Amulet if their duo-jungler-mid combo is magical. (usually makes the whole team magical heavy)
  • Gauntlet of Thebes if the duo-jungler-mid combo is even or if you plan a no protection item as 3rd item

    3rd item will go for Gauntlet of Thebes if you don't already have it.
    If you have you can grab one of the aura items in the 2nd pick depending on their full team comp,
    go for a "playstyle" reliant item like Relic Dagger or Shield of Regrowth (if you have a heal),
    or if one person is a big problem go for another protection item (although usually the aura will be the choice)

    4th item onward build go very flexible. At this point you can grab anti heal if it's needed ( Contagion or Pestilence) otherwise more cooldown in the form of Spirit Robe (only if you have 10% cdr already as you want to have 20-30% after this item) or Pridwen are good situation ally Breastplate of Valor.

    5th and 6th are usually your counter build items think Midgardian Mail for enemy teams with a lot of basic attackers. anti heal again. Spectral Armor agaisnt heavy crit. etc.

    if the game goes this long pick up elixer of speed and an item that will replace your boots stats (if focus you want that 10% cdr back).

    Hope this helps a bit during your experimenting

Build needs work.
No boots isn't good in conquest
You can't build runic shield on Ymir
Polynomicon has no place in a support build

Poly isn't bad late-game for objective pressure if you need it, but I wouldn't prioritize it. Also, the lack of shoes is a big concern, as is the mention of runic shield on a magical god.

builds lacks CDR.
Also the vs physical will get you melted by a mage.
Gem of Isolation is a meh item considering the duration

Thanks for the feedback. I'm pretty new to the game, a week or so. I understand that shoes of focus are good for a guardian, how about that. I'll look into the other stuff as well, sorry for the runic mistake and the overall lacking build.
