    Vamana mana Bugged?

    I still feel forced to go many mana times with this WARRIOR (not mage) so I wonder if this is a bug that it didnt update correctly his buff on mana.

    Typical pretentious response from you. Guess going to have to start to ignore you as well....

    What im talking about is that COMPARED TO OTHERS VaMANA seems to be forced to many mana items for a non mage good.

    So manage your mana better, buy Breatplate of Valor, or pick up the Blue Buff.

    Vamana at his core is so dependent on mana that stealing man buff or denying it pretty much sets him back so hard. When you buy BoV that delays his build by a lot because that means you have ANOTHER item to build before you get Fatalis (the only thing that makes your ult actually pose a threat). Blackthorn hammer offers more stats and gives + nice passive. Vaman is so restricted by his mana that he cannot speed clear, harass or engage in fights liek other gods do because he goes OoM effectively in 4 abilities even when spaced out for max passive mana regen.

    Stealing blue buff vs Vamana is nothing special, pretty much any solo laner gets screwed when they lose it.

    Building arguably the best physical defense item in the game isn't delaying his build, he's a warrior, warriors like early defense, mp5, and cooldown reduction. In early solo lane Prots > Power. If you want to pewpew real quick with Vamana then play him in the jungle. His lategame now after his buffs is very strong and 'delaying' his build as you put it is perfectly fine.

    Blackthorn Hammer in itself is an ok item, but the stats on BoV are much better for early game in general. The only thing Blackthorn has over BoV is having a real passive but, all of BoV's stats are better for only 100 more gold. That said nothing stopping you from buying both eventually.

    Buy Breatplate of Valor, or pick up the Blue Buff= forced to use mana items still as a warrior..... guess you dont read before u post so I wont read yours either any more.

    When the game starts(you have no full items) If you use 3 abilites thats it you have to go to base.

    Every character in the game except for one of them uses Mana, Vamana is not special.

    I have zero issue using Vamana in solo lane. If you're constantly spamming abilities and not letting blue buff do its job, then yeah, you'll run out of mana really freaking quickly. Use 1 ability and then use auto's. Fight your solo laner! Especially when you have blue buff, you'll restore 2% of your missing mana with every successful ability hit against an enemy god. Get Warriors Blessing, that shit is actually OP early on for mana sustain, or if you're going more passive, get Guardian's Blessing and hit the wave then refuse to get last hits or let the tower get them so you get mana back that way.

    Solo lane has absolutely zero mana issues right now with the way the meta and buff is currently. If you're having mana issues, you're managing your mana badly (OR GET MAGE'S BLESSING). Anything from that Breastplate tree gives MP5 and mana as well. Blackthorn hammer is lowkey one of the best items for warriors right now with a massive mana and health and power boost, PLUS an actual passive. Every single god (except one) in Smite will have mana issues and that is why every blessing for conquest has some sort of Mana sustain on its passive right now, whether that be MP5 (mages and hunters) or actual mana restoration (Warriors, Guardians, Assassins). And every single god (except that one god again) will OOM really quickly without a blessing. Even mages have this issue if they don't use Mage's blessing in mid. Nox has horrible mana issues right now as well. But it's easily managed with a blessing and not using more then one ability per wave for the first few levels.

    When everyone is saying manage your mana better, they are 100% and irrevocably right.

    He has high mana conumpstion.
    Vamana has 200 mana if he burns all his abilities sans ult at lvl 5 which is the highest notably in his cohort. He needs to burn mana so he can actually safely harass (you know being an ability based warrior). Every other god can moderate their mana but Vamana has VERY LITTLE lee room to work with

    Blackthorn is weak because it's hybrid item that in the late game falls off super hard and gives no protections (in a meta where damage is so high. boV is nice BUT it should not be built in many cases even if the cdr is nice. Mage's blessing is not a good idea on him, makes him way to frail and it does not help clear speeds much anymore after the nerfs.

    In mid mage's blessing isn't that good if truth be told in mid since it's bonuses and stats aren't that exceptional nowadays due to power of Thoth.
