    Anyone tried this Vamana kinda trolly build?

    This is a troll theorycrafting build that I came up with while testing something in Jungle training. Someone else may already have chanced upon this. Not sure if its that applicable in any of the game modes.

    Build:
    a) Ninja Boots
    b) Berserker's Shield
    c) Bulwark of Hope
    d) Shield of Regrowth
    e) Hastened Katana
    f) Atalanta's Bow
    g) Relic 1 - Shell

    Bait someone in with your low health. Once the shield from Bulwark of Hope triggers, activate Shell. Activate Ultimate.

    With this,
    - triple shield from Bulwark of Hope, Shell and Ultimate shield
    - massive movement speed boost from Shield of Regrowth passive
    - even more movement speed from Atalanta's Bow as you continuously attack others.
    - double heal up from Ultimate heal and Berserker's Shield heal while you smack down on people + HP5 from Shield of Regrowth
    - if you are constantly attacking and someone is also attacking you, you can maintain Ultimate Form over 10 seconds. That means another Shield of Regrowth movement speed boost, as the passive is on 10 seconds cooldown.

    Can this work in an actual game situation?

    Or nice idea but limited usage?

    Atalanta's plus hastened is redundant, especially with regrowth, drop the bow and go with frostbound.

    Vamana no longer has player collision when ulting so you'll want to slow more than speed up.

    My trolling Vamana build is Ninja Tabi > Berskerkers shield > rage > poison star > frostbound hammer > odyssius bow
    Ares stole Aphrodite from Hephaestus
    Ares killed Poseidon's son for rape and was aquited for murder
    Ares is both the Father AND Grandfather of the Amazons. Feel free to "EWWW"
    Ares turned a guard that failed to anounce Helios into a rooster
    Ares supported Trojans. Ares has a ton of kids

    Yours can work, but its an offensive strat.

    My troll build idea is centered on baiting people in, then triple shield (BOH/Shell/Ult), movement speed boost (Shield of Regrowth,Atalanta), heal + hp5.

    Can't kill me, can't catch me. I can still kill you, and if I can't, I can run and you can't catch me.

    there's trolling and then there's wasting an item slot. Silverbranch would be trolling, though i don't think the build breaks AS cap.

    The point is to go as fast as possible. FB wouldn't work toward this end. If you're running the troll build, then the whole build is comprised of wasted slots.

    yep.

    People don't always look at enemy builds, especially in normal mode games.

    So someone looking to aggress on a Vamana on 50% health, may be confident of killing Vamana even in his ult, as they have anti-heal.

    Then Vamana get BOH shield, then shells up, then ults up, essentially going triple shield, and then turns around and proceeds to go slap slap slap!

    And if entire enemy team collapses on him and tries to block his path with Odin wall or Ymir wall or something, he can just waltz off at zoom zoom speed, because of Shield of Regrowth passive.

    Granted the triple shell still loses to a Nike with ult shield (up to 60% health shield if her 2 is up) with Shell. But still, its a sizeable shield that the enemy has to chip through.

    Might be a sizeable shield but without protections you might find yourself running away more than boxing with this build. I know it's the whole point of it, but still I feel as thought it requires more def =P
    It's hard to win an argument with a smart person.. but it's harder to win an argument against a stupid person.
