    Bakasura any good?

    I have a friend who likes to play with him but he's still newbie and rarely join in team fights or ganks because he said baka needs his ultimate to function properly.

    I did some research, google, youtube, smite.guru but I'm afraid that info was outdated.

    Bakasura is my friend's favorite god and I really wanna help him to learn him so if you can give me some tips like play style, builds etc.

    Thanks!

    Bakasura is baaaaaaaaaaaad.

    If he is just starting, he will be fine. Outside of that, Bakasura sucks in everything except Duel.

    Play Nemesis.

    As a shepherd dog the only thing you can do is herd the sheep and hope they go to the shepherd.

    Bakasura is very good if played in the right hands. He shreds through tanks with ease and dominate the field with no problem. His only issue is if he is hit with a heavy crowd control then he is dead. So how do you play Bakasura you may ask? Well the answer is easy. Just Git Gud.

    ~Sincerely,

    A rank X Bakasura
    Favorite Gods by Class:
    Assassin- Bakasura, Camazotz and Thor
    Mage- Hades, Nu Wa, and Zhong Kui
    Guardian- Kumbhakarna, Kuzenbo and Cabrakan
    Warrior- Osiris, Lil Mana and Nike
    Hunter- Izanami, Apollo and Skadi

    Why did I waste my time to write all of this information? Because I can. Now if you'll excuse my, Hades has some souls that need tending to.

    Why is he bad?

    Maybe with full CDR he can do better?

    Bakasura is one of the 4 main "Hypercarry" assassins.

    He's also, by far, the WORST of the 4 main "Hypercarry" assassins.

    If your friend likes the playstyle of Hypercarry, I suggest he see if one of the other, better, gods would also suit him whilst not having the same drawbacks that Bakasura has.

    For reference, the 4 main ones are:

    Kali
    Nemesis
    Arachne
    Bakasura

    They all excel in getting really strong and basically murdering anyone they feel like. With the downside of being slower than most Assassins to come online (Generally need Boots + Qin's + Fatalis for most of them to start to do something. Nemesis and Arachne can forgo Fatalis if you wish as they have slows in their kit)

    So yeah. Bakasura is not in a good place at the moment. Is he unplayably bad? No. Heck, even the worst god in the entire game, Loki, can be used effectively.

    However, your friend may find it helpful to be playing a stronger god when learning the game before trying to main a weaker one.
    Preferred Gods:
    Amaterasu, Aphrodite, Ares, Awilix, BAEllona, Hel, Jing Wei, Nemesis, Nox, Serqet, Skadi, Sol and The Morrigan.

    We need more kawaii skins!

    Baka's main nitch is snowballing early, invading your buffs, and killing you at Lv. 5. Except when pretty much everything right now invades, most solo laners are either Warriors with sustain and CC Immunity or Guardians with Vanguard, they will just camp and farm, and also add as a bonus that his only form of CC is a slow every 90s that is leveled last, his nitch is lost. Disarms also render half his kit unusable.

    CDR is also pointless because Bakasura is 95% AA-Based.

    Bakasura is a 1 trick pony. He pretty much only has 1 opportunity within his kit to do anything impactful (his ult), but even that is easily counterable and avoidable. Plus he's one of the easiest gods in the game to counterbuild, like midguardian just completely shuts him down.

    There's pretty much no reason at all to pick a bakasura outside of comfort-picks.

    When you're playing Bakasura you need to make sure the enemy CC is on cooldown. Otherwise you shouldn't attack them. You will get CC'd and die before getting to land your meeles. I suggest attacking someone who has no mana, because he wouldn't be able to use his abilities and would have to use a relic to escape. With Baka, you can do well in Duel, Siege and Conquest. However you're going to have a bad time in Arena and Assault. Not sure about Joust and Clash.
