To start off, if you haven't gone through all of ymir, learned ymir, and had fun with ymir, you might not have known one of his taunts happens to be the lovable quote from the old bugs bunny cartoons involving the lovable abominable snowman and his love for George. The abominable snowman never gave up, didn't let anyone, or anything, stop him from obtaining George.
This is what you're going to be doing!
The point of this build is to pick a specific target, and focus them unrelentingly to throw them off balance, cause chaos, and produce many openings for your teammates to pick off non-team-players, any solo acts, and gank as you tank! Seems easy to counter, and it is, IF the enemy team is willing to actually work AS A TEAM! We both know, this is not the case more often then not, which is why this build does so well!
This build can seem a bit odd at first glance, as most of the power is coming strictly out of 2 items and the standard defenses are hardly there at all. How can this even possibly work out?
You will become a giant hit and run. You're targetting 1 person the majority of the time. If and when they ask for help, you need to beat a hasty retreat to collect yourself. Kiting will be the second reason behind this build. you are made to survive, and anger any try-hards who absolutely can't stand to see that guy get away with 2% health remaining.
These babies are fantastic for gimping some of those real nasty combos, anubis' mummify for example. CC reduction can change a for sure kill into "HA! i still have a quarter of my HP left!" and the speed from finalized boots will put you on par with most other builds, giving you a clean excape after throwing down your wall at your feet.
Need this item to ensure you don't run out of mana, and keep the magical defense you need to prevent your early demise. on top of the basic reasons for needing this early, your team will love you! MP5s carry games, and when your team can't get enough early on, you will be a godsend.
Hide, Renewal, or Gaia
I'll sum them all up, as every one of these items is viable, but situational for various reasons. Hide of the Nemean Lion is strait up the bane of AA gods, and the defense is nothing to shy away from. Renewal will give you even more survivability with its passive every time you find George! He really is a nice guy! Gaia is perfect if the enemy team isn't quite able to power out those physical attacks. It's rare that people build mostly mages, but it does happen, so the increased magic defense on top of the HP5s makes you harder to kill.
The key to all these is, increased HP. more on this later.
This little number will make you the most obnoxious guy on the field to almost any target you're after, expecially Puch. While Puch is notorious for locking and zoning, you will be able to power through his corpses. This instantly puts him in a panic, as does arachne's webs, AMC's honey, etc. Without their zoning working for them, its working for you! On top of this passive, you get a bit of everything to make you more annoying to deal with; extra speed, CDs, and even more Health!
If you haven't figured it out by now, this is where a massive chunk of your power and survivability comes from. a whopping 600 HP and a collective 110+ attack power! Hot damn, you'll be alive, and painful! George won't know what hit him!
Rod of Asclepius
This might be the most confusing one to see on this list, but there are a number of reasons its here. the increased speed is noted, the extra health, as well as the power are all what this build is after, so none of those should even be in question. the passive? perhaps its not the most fantastic for this situation, but your healers, and to an unnoticed portion of your team, this item is pretty nifty with its aura.
Now that you have your gear planned out and are ready to make a friend, its time to talk strategy.
George is a very shy person, and hes not to keen on making new friends, so we are gonna change his mind by NEVER GIVING UP.
Poked by an ADC? that wont stop me.
Pushed by Herc? I still see you George.
Stunned by Isis? Just a quick breather.
Rooted by Sylvanus? I'll be there in a moment.
let NOTHING stop you from your goal! keep trucking to your target, because every person that notices you moving back to the real goal is another kited target, and an opening for your team to strike! Pretty sneaky, but not your purpose!
George must be loved! Puch is a fantastic George, as late game he starts nuking. He can't nuke if you run up and give him plenty of hugs though, and once he feels overwelmed by your love and must run back to his hole to hide, you now have a wave of enemies to kite and evade! lucky for you, you planned for this, as all your items and your 1 are all ready to get you out of that problem with speed and health enough to eat 3 ults! aren't you cleaver?
With all great ideas, there are faults. there are a few pesky gods who will make your life a very sorrow filled one.
Sylvanus tends to be a pest with his grab. this can turn your successful retreat into a nightmare.
Sobek. CCs for days, and will not be afraid to throw you back into his team to wrap up the kill.
Hercules will try to save his power for pulling out squishies, but once you make yourself known, theres a good chance he will start pulling you back in.
Awilix usually aren't too knowledgeable of all the ins and outs of their ults, but you shouldnt let the possibility of stupidity make you cheeky. a good Awilix will know how to keep you in the fight that you dont want to tank.
If youre stubborn to the bitter end, you will see your team succeeding, and in that is half the victory! you will be a support without even trying, so long as you become the elephant in the room, stomping and parading to your dreams, kiting enemies to their inevitable demise.
