Argus, the Defender

Key Bind: 4

Hera brings Argus crashing down at a location, damaging and knocking up enemies. On landing Argus will attack the nearest target. Hera can control where Argus moves through refiring this ability onto an enemy or if he has a target, to recall him. While recalled Argus will defend Hera and attack anyone that gets close. Argus has a hit chain that starts with a normal basic attack, into a ground circle AoE slowing enemies by 20% for 1.5s, into a line attack.

Just gonna put this here as a reference for anyone that may have wondered how on hit effects apply with Argus.

As of my test 23/06/2020 (Cthulhu patch):
Argus does like all pets not apply item effects as most people are aware.
Spawning argus or the initial knock up does also not apply item effects

(this was tested both in jungle practice (checking damage numbers and visual effects) and a custom match (by testing damage numbers and the buff debuff icons).
The tested on-hit effects from items were: Stone of Binding, Ethereal Staff, Divine Ruin and Gem of Isolation.

I thought everyone already knew this, Argus only benefits from power and pen.

Trust me that the number of times I have seen on Reddit threads, people saying he does proc them on landing/spawn, even from Hera "mains". This information is less known than you think. Most people only know he does not apply it with his punching, the spawn is lesser-known info.

It would not surprise me some of the outdated guides may even mention the landing damage proccing it.

Yeah Kriega, EVERYONE already knew this. It's common knowledge that the newest players entering into SMITE are quizzed on before they're even allowed to play the tutorial.
