    Is Spectral Armor useful?

    I used to build this in S4 Fall but with the change, have never used it since.

    It would be if crit was actually good to build in S5. I use to build it at the start of S5 on supports since you don't usually go Thorns and Hide on support. It felt great to buy against crit when it was good and if crit ever becomes good to build again then Spectral Armor will be great again. Really strong on Geb as well.

    I use it on Geb, for exemple: if you build nemean on geb, If I recall correctly, you will reflect only 25% (nemean) of the 25% more damaging crit damage that geb, due to his passive, suffers, so it's a bit usless;
    at this point, I preferred to build Spectral armor to reduce again the crit chance of another 50%, and get the 20% CCreduction;

    I dunno if it's the right move to do honeslty..

    Sometimes I builded that Spectral on Mages too (not in conquest, that was arena) when I found too many opponents with crit, maybe 2 hunter and an assassins, just to counterbuild but not with a breastplate, or with a nemean ; so a 200 AA that should crits me, instead of hitting for 400 , hits me only for 300 ;

    Don't build Spectral unless you see Ne Zha or 3+ crit items where 1 is Rage. Ne Zha's Ults are 100% crit hits, and Rage+2 others is 80% or more. Spectral doesn't stop new Malice passive though so.

    Right now, crit aside from Poison Star and Wind Demon is lackluster, so Spectral Armor really doesn't have a need for anything when Nemian Lion is going to counter crits in a more helpful manner.

    Although next patch if the Malice rework goes live without any nerfs, you may be building this against Serqet and Ne Zha. That item is going to be completely busted for those two.

    it's useful , on gods with high base health and self sustain ( v gods like artemis , hun batz and merc ) just have to build hide of nemean lion as well or maybe Sovereignty ... u can take thorns well and just destroy the enemy carries

    on geb ? no buddy build it on aggressive supports ( yes geb is aggressive sup , but as disruptor , so u have to be behind carries to shield and help them escape , u engage to utilize ulti and knock up , thats how u fight as supp so HoNL is not the best item u can build ( and because of passive of geb as well) building bv into Sovereignty makes more sense cause he benefits from cdr more ...
    build it on warrior supports or guardians like fafnir ( indeed fafnir is aslo disruptor but , he also is source of sustain dmge , like warriors)

    you build it on Geb if the enemy is building crit because they're basically just doing the raw unplussed basics and cant hurt him

    It's significantly more that that as it gives 60 protections and most crit builds don't have much pen so it probably halves the damage you take.
