    Indeed Ganesha may be quite versatile about itemization.

    Pun aside, depends more about the player playstyle.
    Speaking about myself: would build him full support and no power, because I favor a more support like playstile.

    How about this: Ganesha still keeps the kill, but gives the exp and gold to the nearby ally. Or even both get full exp, if that's not too much.

    The passive as is is way too much Conquest-support-meta-focused. How about having freedom of choice? How about having fun with guardians? Besides, a good and necessary finish sometimes is what a support needs to get levels and items he needs, even if full tank.

    Another one: is it me or the ultimate is beyond useless?

    EDIT:
    Another one yet. His passive works on minions, pretty much guaranteeing that he'll always be two levels bellow the enemy support. They're pretty much forcing him to be exactly what people hate the most about being a support, without any choice on the player on that subject. Shame.

    Considering how much damage it can do coupled with the bigass slow and 55 protection shred, not really.

    Shit like this is why I keep saying that HR doesn't know their own guardians.

    The damage only works if someone is standing at the corners. More likely it'll proc only once and be ignored.

    Everybody waited so long for Ganesha. We expected to have fun with the jolly elephant dude.

    Instead we got the meta-whoringest thing ever made. A god that'll only be played by pros and the tryhardest pre-mades. Even worse, there will be pressure from the ones who never play support but still talk as if they know shit about tanking to force people to pick the new perfect doormat. Stats will also be messed up with free pentas.

    The hell you mean by bigass? Though from what it looks like you're unlikely to level up the 2 before the ult because it offers nothing more upgradable than physical protections.
    Poseidon is now rocking #sideboobs. But don't let this distract you from the fact that Chang'e is supposed to be stuck on the moon getting high on LSD with her rabbit friends.

    Don't listen to me unless on days when I drink coffee. I'm a retard when my brain isn't chugging.

    I may or may not redo the Morrigan thread because am too lazy. Sorrymasen.

    Uhh... I actually see it as the opposite.

    The way his passive works means he's given free reign to be as aggressive as he wants. He can go balls to the wall for kills, and landing KS. Without fucking his team over by getting the support to be 5-0-9 and putting a ton of gold into the god that's going to... Buy some more defence items?

    Instead, he can get kills and feed the gold into his team, so they can get the carry items they need (Though, it going to the closest god means it's probably going to feed the solo laners in teamfights...)

    I mean, the way people are talking about him makes it sound like it's impossible for him to get gold/exp from kills at all. While in reality, he just is unable to get that bonus for a KB when he's with someone else. Which is generally what you're aiming for anyway as a non-hard carry god.

    So yeah... God has the unique capabilities of being able to go as aggressive as the player wants, without putting the gold and experience on the worst god on the team (Even gods like Bacchus and Cabrakan who excel in dealing damage when they're getting farmed, still are the worst gods to give the farm to if they're in the support position. It's just acceptable because "It could be worse, it could be a Geb getting it instead!")

    I know when I play Ganesha, I'll be going bruiser and trying to punch people to death. His passive really doesn't put a damper on anything other than those people who have a fetish for seeing their KDA being "Good"
    Preferred Gods:
    Amaterasu, Aphrodite, Ares, Awilix, BAEllona, Hel, Jing Wei, Nemesis, Nox, Serqet, Skadi, Sol and The Morrigan.

    We need more kawaii skins!

    If that's true, then it's a bug because it's supposed to be where the lines are.

    It goes up to 40%. That's the second highest value any slow has in the game, second only to Guan Yu's 60% slow.

    Not true.

    He Bo's scroll slow goes up to 50% at rank 5
    Kukulkan's zephyr is 50% at rank 5
    Nemesis's slice and dice is 50% at rank 5

    Guan's warrior's will caps at 40%, not 60%

    So He Bo, Kukulkan, and Nemesis have the most powerful slows in the game. Guan Yu is capped at 40%, along with tons of others.
