    a good zeus build?

    my current build for zeus is:
    Shoes of focus
    Spear of the Magus
    Bancroft's Talon
    Rod of Tahuti
    Spear of Desolation
    Shaman's ring

    I build that in that order, any ideas to improve it?

    Don't bother with Shaman's Ring, Penetration is a much better investment.

    Also going full glass cannon is just asking to be camped, try a more bulky approach.

    Magi Shoes
    Warlocks Sash/Book of Thoth
    Winged Blade
    Obsidian Shard
    Rod of Tahuti
    Mantle of Discord

    Zeus has such great damage and zoning that you can afford to go a little tanky.

    Yes and his power scaling actually ain't great so trading some power for utility on him ain't as bad as on other mages.

    How to build zeus depends a lot on the game, how powerful initiation and chasers they have etc. But the build posted here IMO is a good standard works in most cases zeus build. Personally I love gem+ms item (like shamans) on him.

    And to OPif you have spear of magus you do not need more flat pen but you do need % pen, replace either deso or magus for obsidian.

    If you are decently comfy with the current build I'd rerplace banecroft/magus for smth else, try gem/winged to start with or just an early obsidian. Personally I feel obsidian early when you have magus is a huge waste, better to just go for obsidian and power then. I do like magus on him though. very much depends on the game if magus is worth investment (like do you have another strong magical dmg dealer then magus is better then if you are solo magical dpser)

    you build depending on the enemys.. dont use the same build 24/7

    need more pen for abjectives then build it
    need anti heal then build it
    you can build defence alittle on him

    at one time they was building hide of the urchin making you tank untll it got nerfed . zeus had good dmg even when you add 1 defence item

    builds like this ive seen in the pro secene and on streams and you could use

    shoes of magi
    book of thoth
    celestral if they have a ton of physical gods, winged blade if they have a ton of slows like an amc, or void stone vs magical comp.
    obsidian shard
    ethernal staff
    rod of tuti

    vs teams that are healing team comps go

    shoes of magi
    book of thoth
    winged blades or celestral legion helm
    obsidian shard
    divine ruin
    ethernal staff

    i find warlocks better if you want more life but overall people go for book of thoth

    winged blade is great vs slows meaning zeus can high tail it out of danger better..

    these builds make you tanky and celestral is often swaped out for more dmg or better defence like mantle of discord or spirit because the small defence it offers can be usless late game when people have more pen, wingedblade might be kept..

    watch this worlds and if zeus is picked then watch the builds. you find some pretty intersting builds that people have never used.
    I like turtles

    You can use this build perfectly, but personally I build Bancroft's Talon, it just works too well with Zeus if you ask me.

    Nobody mentions Tank Boots, from the Ranked/SPL Matches i´ve seen, a lot of players tend to go Tank boots to be safer early

    Everyones opinion isnt wrong, Zeus has great damage and utility in group fights, but his weakness naturally is not being able to escape at all, build based on enemy assassin and who is in your lane.


    My Zeus:

    Mage Starter item

    Dynasty Plate Helm
    Penetration Boots
    Gem of Isolation
    Rod of Tahuti
    Book of the Dead
    Ethereal Staff
