    Question about building Khepri

    Is it wise to build BoV early or should I build another item such as Heartward, Sovereignty or Hide of the urchin?

    Example:
    Start
    Watchers Gift, TR1 Boots, x3 Multi pots, x2 Wards and Curse.
    (time passes)
    Watchers Gift, Shoes of Focus, Breastplate of Valor.

    I usually skip BoV on guardians. I will build a starter item (starter item should always depends on the enemy comp) then tank boots (Switch out for cdr boots or speed boots after all other item changes) into hide of the urchin and stone of gaia(for early game sustain and mp5[switch out for mail of renewal late game]) into two offensive items (Such as chronos pendant and gem of iso) then into spirit robe later replaced by mantle of discord. This provides him with good sustain and defense throughout the game and a good amount of damage to keep him a relevant threat. To be honest I rarely use a defense item that's geared more towards one damage type or the other. (Also I switch out my offense items for more utility based items such as winged blade vs. poolsiden)

    As to the wisdom of early BoV it depends on how many physical damage gods the enemy has, the damage output of the physical gods early game vs. magical damage early game and how often you are taking damage from these physical gods. The cooldown is nice but for guardians items such as this should always be situational.

    Khepri doesn't really fit the standard guardian build imo. He relies on cooldowns heavily to get what he needs done, especially with his ult since its incredibly invaluable in team fights. I'll basically take any item that helps with cooldowns (minus the boots). My personal build for him is Tank boots, BoV, Genji's, Spirit Robe, Spectral armor and then either Bulwark, Oni Hunter's Garb or Pestilence if the other team is relying heavily on lifesteal or healing abilities (so if they have a healing mage grab pestilence). With Bulwark or Oni's, you'll max out your CCR and with Spirit robe you'll be incredibly hard to lock down. Its a generally cheap build and you don't have to switch much of anything out (as doing so wastes gold and time and since supports are generally behind to begin with, you want the right item the first time around).

    Khepri needs the early HP from the auras.

    You could go Boots -> Heartward -> Valor if you'd like, but generally rushing CDR that early isn't going to be worth it.

    His Ultimate is the best thing about him, generally building CDR should be a rush I'd say depending on somethings.
    Who is it that decides this ''worth''? Who has the right to decide such a thing? The light of dawn and curtain of nightfall, they bathe us all equally without discrimination - Humans, Giants, Fairies, Goddesses and Demons...
