    Usually happens in arena, but sometimes it has happened in joust(never really up against magical ADCs though). Still even if it is to help tank towers, they could be building hybrid defense like hide of the urchin and spirit robe so they at least get something out of it to help in a fight. If they want an item specifically for towers you get emperor's for its passive. To be honest I'm quite sure they are deciding what items they want to use on a god and sticking to that specific build regardless of what they are up against. Even if it ends up being half their build is completely wasted(usually just 1-2 items but I have seen someone build full tank where half their build was irrelevant due to the enemy comp being only 1 damage type).

    Not all guardians are good aura bots... tbh most of them should not be aura bots as they are gimped too hard... m except terra, geb, ares... dunno which guardian should be gimped to have more than 2 aura items as support.... I mean would you rather have a sobek that does 1200 damage on ultimate and be useful damage magnet, or a sobek with auras and 0 influence except some cc?

    And lot of people here don't know what the hell they are talking about. Aura items are absolutely stupid strong. They should be somewhere in most games. The thing about the current smite meta is that it is all snowball. If i get behind, my goal is to get picks on their squishy targets to catch up. Its hard to do that when everyone on the enemy team is insanely tanky.

    If I am super behind, building auras makes your entire team super tanky which can let you fight into a fed team.

    If one team has them, the other team has to or they are at a distinct disadvantage.

    Aura items in smite are all stupid. Dont get me started on Pythags.

    You have to be in close proximity of the aura item, for it, to work... I conquest, you are better off being tanky/brawly built.
    In assault and arena... yes...
    Anywhere where there is a team fight... maybe...
    Unless I can also support my team with things like heals... Neah... I`d rather get a better defensive item or some damage.
    Pithagorem is a special case of aura. Its maybe the only aura item, with the mail that I would get. Why? It gives damage... Hence it`s useful...

    Terra is a more effective bruiser as is Ares. Ares gets power from auras sure but in all honesty he's much more effective with a bruiser as well. Really gods like Khepri, Sylvanus and Geb are best suited for auras imo, they tend to be backline supports, which Terra can do but she has excellent zoning and initiation as well so it makes sense to play to the strengths of her kit.

    Way I've usually seen it if your guardian is more frontline and aggressive with initiation or kit in general its best to build damage that accentuates those strengths, Ares with spear of magus and voidstone for example. More backline guardians are likely better suited for beneficial auras, but your build should always be based on circumstance and opposition regardless of your guardian selection. Reacting in the correct fashion to what is in front of you as an obstacle is always better than being blindsided by a myopic insistence on one size fits all approach regardless of circumstance.

    To be fair, he can do both. I mean, aside from penetration, he can build full auras and get his defences that way, alongside power from his passive. Like, a standard build on Ares for me is like Sov(Now Jade Emperor because it's better)/Heart/Void/Pythag - With the last 2 spots being Boots and then a random item depending on what I feel I need... If I want to get some pen I might take Obsidian, otherwise I might go Mystical Mail...

    Really gods like Khepri, Sylvanus and Geb are best suited for auras imo, they tend to be backline supports
    People need to play some Bruiser Geb more. 1k+ damage Shockwaves are a thing. Throw in a ~500 damage ultimate thanks to having some actual pen and you're able to annihilate squishies... All the while giving a huge middle finger to Hunters because crits don't work on him...
    Preferred Gods:
    Amaterasu, Aphrodite, Ares, Awilix, BAEllona, Hel, Jing Wei, Nemesis, Nox, Serqet, Skadi, Sol and The Morrigan.

    >"building auras makes your entire team super tanky"

    And yet we're the ones who don't know what we're talking about. Lux's math from the last thread shows that you're really only buying around a second for one squishy when the enemy ADC focuses them; and that's assuming that no other enemies are joining in, and doesn't reflect results against a mage, who can just 2-shot your squishies.

    This right here is why i never actually have prots as squishy, because my support thinks CC and Dmg is enough support.....When mage and ADC and jungle already have enough to kill every single one on the enemy team.

    No, you never have prots as a squishy because you don't bother to work in a Discord or Urchin, which hardly does jack to your damage output. And CC and damage are far more useful to your team than--and I can't stress this enough--roughly 1 fucking second in the best-case scenario against one enemy ADC in survival time.

    idk why hunters value aura prots so much either. 35 prots will do nothing unless my hunter builds a defense item to stack it with. Heck the only reason I use sov is because I like 55 physical prots, 25HP5 and 200HP. It gives me these benefits while I have voidstone for magic defense and damage. Yeah I build some auras but not so the hunter can get a measly 15 prots. It's so I am tanky and sustainable.

    Deal with it ������
