    Is Soul Reaver better for guardians than mages ?

    I've seen Soul Reaver in my recommended items list while playing guardians more than mages. Why is that ?

    Because mages build a ton of damage items already whereas guardians build bruiser or limited damage, so it's there as a little power boost.

    Soul Reaver does True Damage.

    Guardian's don't often build that much penetration (Usually just Void Stone) so get more out of it.

    Mages can often build Ethereal Staff and get a similar effect due to the pen they build making it do closer to true damage, but more frequently.
    Preferred Gods:
    Amaterasu, Aphrodite, Ares, Awilix, BAEllona, Hel, Jing Wei, Nemesis, Nox, Serqet, Skadi, Sol and The Morrigan.

    1) Cause you can get doubled power from Book and mages can spam skills from safe area while guardians must apply them from close range which mean you hit rarely, dont mention guardians cooldown is much higher than mages.
    2) Power give guardians less damage than mages cause of lower scaling.
    3) "Soul Reaver does True Damage. Guardian's don't often build that much penetration (Usually just Void Stone) so get more out of it."

    Basically SR have higher burst damage for guardians while Book have higher for mages.
    This feeling when your team is far behind and you have no prospects for late game but for some reason players still doesnt want surrender - MOBA Cancer.

    Technically, both classes can use it but i say it still depends on the god you have
    Most guardians can use it as a dmg boost, sure. Then there are also guardians that make way more profit by getting something for constant dmg, or pen instead of SR.
    Most mages really dont need it, or you wont find a good use for it mostly. On the other hand, there are some exceptions that can time it pretty well and use it focused enough to take targets down (He bo, Ao for example)

    I usually find it more useful on people with low damage like more defensive guardians or utility mages.

    It's a rather mediocre item that's better replaced with just more power. Mages in particular get little out of it.
    THE END IS FUCKING NIGH! FLY, YOU FOOLS!

    Only thing I like about reaver is when it procs on a DoT killing the swine who thought they were safe. Always results in the same response of "bwahaha stop running and accept your fate!"

    I usually only build it on Scylla as my 2nd to last item, thinking if it'll work on say Isis and other mages I'm thinking of taking in along with working on guardians over time.

    Though I recall during the alpha or beta phase it would tick over time equivalent true damage on dots like from Khepri and Sylvanus vs just the burst from activation and nothing else that I see it do now when I do bother to build it on them.
    Serqet, Bastet, Sylvanus, and Scylla, the gods and goddesses I go to when a role needs a filler.
    But Fenrir, Loki, Freya, and hunters, you stay far away from me lest I lose my mind and destroy my tools.

    (so what if it doesn't rhyme?)
