    Chronos Pendant not a good item anymore?

    So i've heard chronos pendant is not a good item anymore instead it's better to build book of thoth and book of dead or some defense items or soul gem
    what are you thoughts on chronos pendant? personally i still build it on most mages cuz i want the CD reduction to spam Abilities and that extra mp5 is nice addition to it what do you guys think?

    Chronos' Pendant is still a good item.

    It's not longer a good FIRST item though (It can still be okay though. Especially on gods that want a lot of CDR fast, like Janus for example).

    First item you wanna grab Book of Thoth or Bancroft's Talon because they're really strong powerspikes.

    3rd item (After Boots + Book/Bancroft) or later and it's fine though. Good amount of CDR and MP5 can keep you going for a while.

    Can still do a Library Build with Chronos + 3 books (Thoth/Dead/Reaver) and have good mana to convert into power and shield procs.

    As a side note, I'm still sort of hoping they change its passive (Also, Genji's Guard and Spear of Desolation's too) because I don't like the idea of having items that specifically break a stat cap. I'm of the mind that if you're implementing items to just bypass a stat cap, why not just increase the cap and give those items more interesting passives instead...

    Anyone advocating you pick up Soul Gem is most likely trolling. Soul Gem is pretty bad after its nerfs.

    It's really only useful on specific gods that can either proc it efficiently (Such as Nu Wa always hitting all 5 enemy gods with it when she uses her ult. Or something like Aphro who can stack it up ridiculously easily because every time you hit an ally with Kiss it gets a stack) or gods that really want to just push out as much burst as possible but can't rely on Soul Reaver because it got nerfed (Such as Ao Kuang or The Morrigan)

    Like, literally, I think I'd rather have Divine Ruin than Soul Gem for raw damage output and Divine Ruin isn't even that amazing a damage item.
    Preferred Gods:
    Aphrodite, Awilix, BAEllona, Da Ji, Discordia, Fenrir, Janus, Jing Bae, Nike, Nox, Skadi, Sol and The Morrigan.

    It really depends on who you are playing and what your play style is. I generally always like Chronos' pendant because of the 20% cool down and it's a must for me because I like to have my cool downs reduced. However, some find the cool downs not an issue for them, so they go for other items. Even on tanks, I will sometimes use it oppose to armor so I can have mp.

    I find it ironic that this thread is made just before we get the god who can pretty much spam her ult if she consistently deals damage.

    Chronos Pendant is a good item for mid-game or late-game, not early. Book of Thoth is much better early hands down, but they fulfill two completely different purposes so not a very good comparison. Book of the Dead in reality is really not worth it unless you have Book of Thoth, you also aren't going to be going it early. Protections and Soul Gem are utility dependent.

    There is nothing wrong with Chronos Pendant, its essentially 90 Power and 30% CDR in one item, but really its something you don't want until a good point of the game after you've gotten core stats online or your stacking item, no use having all that CDR when you hit like a wet noodle. Also imo it depends on what god you are playing, cause some mages really don't need CDR that terribly while others can't function without it.

    i'm going to agree, Chronos pendant is a 3rd or later item now. plenty of gods still want to pick it up though, ones that either need to spam their kit as fast as possible (Janus, Thoth), or have extremely high CD on their Ults like Nu Wa and Morrigan. when it comes to really potent burst damage though penetration is more valuable, so thats when you want to see something more like a Spear of Desolation over the Pendant.

    Really curious on playing her so will see lol.
