    Suggestions on how to build solo lane guardians?

    I enjoy playing guardians in solo lane, mostly because I'm actual trash at playing warriors (and actual trash in general, i'm not good at this game)

    So far I've liked playing Arito, Sobek, and Xing tian (love that god by the way) in the solo lane.

    Usually my build is:

    Shoes of focus (for the CDR and mana)
    Mark of the vanguard as a starter item
    Mystical mail or Breastplate of valor for physical defense
    Genji's guard for magical defense, or pestilence if the enemy team has a healer
    Void stone
    Magi's blessing if the enemy team has a lot of CC
    Winged blade if the enemy team has a lot of slows
    Witch blade if the enemy team has a lot of AA gods
    I'm also considering trying out Soul reaver and Stone of gaia

    As far as relics go it's usually Teleport glyph then either Meditation, Magic shell, or Blink


    I'm looking for a hybrid sorta build with good defense and damage. Am I on the right track or is my build completely ridiculous?

    i think you're on point, pretty much although your early clear may suffer, and if you get a 2v1 w an aggressive jungler you might not be able to manage the wave too easily.

    This is why in SPL Guards as Support are often paired early with adc then split off when a few levels are secured and they can establish more burst to their damage. In some cases, and depending on what you level first, this might not be an issue. For instance, an Ares with his 3 prioritized might have less of an early wave issue, but might not support mid game as effectively.

    Make sense?

    Honestly your builds ideas are already pretty solid for a solo lane guardian. Only thing to remember is that items such as Witchblade, Magi's, and Winged Blade are situational and you should have other possible grabs to think about like Mantle of Discord, Spirit Robe, or even sometimes more offense items like Gem of Iso and Celestial Legion Helm.

    But don't bother with Gaia, it sucks and just got a huge rework nerf.

    have you also tried a mage solo?

    yes it's a thing...just a tad more rare, since they are squishy.

    I like much more penetration in my hybrid builds. Pen is great on guardians anyway, as it will not only help your damage but boost mystical mail if you're buying that. I like to go Mark of the Vanguard > Pen Boots > BoV > Void Stone/Mystical Mail (depends on how much trouble mid-laner is giving me) > Mystical Mail/VoidStone > Spear of the Magus (on Xing/Artio, since they have lots of damage ticks, and are my guardian mains, but Obsidian Shard on say, Geb), then Mantle of Discord or Spirit Robe (depending on how much hard CC the enemy has). If the enemy has lots of healing I'll buy Divine Ruin instead of Spear of the Magus. Divine Ruin is so much better (IMO) than Pestilence for anti-heal, especially with XT, who can apply his roar. I also feel your build has way too little physical defense, especially if you want to lead late-game tower dives like you should be. I have also seen guardians go boots into Warlock's Sash with good success, but that's not an item I personally run. If I did I'd likely forgo mystical mail.

    Please don't. Having a mage as a solo is like having no front liner at all.

    Here's what I build.

    Starter Item (Choose one it's after you.)
    Vampiric Shroud/Mark of the vanguard.
    Shoes of the Magi
    Hide of the Nemean Lion (Vice versa with magical defence)
    Bulwark of Hope (Vice versa with physical defence)
    You should go for pestilence in case the enemy is a healer, or shogun if you have like 2 adc[Hunter, Mage(sol-etc)]
    4th you can go for Def or Dmg depends on what you feel you need most.
    For defence you could go for Hide of the urchin since it gives you a hell of defence and hp.(Vice versa with damage)
    For damage you can go for[(Spear of Magus, Obsidian Shard,Gem of Iso)(Vice versa with defence)] depending on what god you are playing.
    I personally prefer Mystical Mail and Void Stone since it makes you tankier and gives some dmg.
    And here's the last one. Situational.
    You can change the items depending on situation it's not a build you go everytime.

    Please don't be the guy that recommends mage solo.
