    His 2 is the stun.
    Ah sorry. It's been a while since I played Anubis.
    I don't have a cool signature.

    It's his 1 and 4 actually. His 3 is grasping hands. But as people have stated, Anubis biggest weakness is the results of his raw power. He has the abilities to hit you so hard that if you don't die, you are definitely going back to base. The downside is when he does his big attack, he stands completely still. And if you're up against a team who pays attention, the instant you do any of those attacks 2, 3, or even 4 members of the opposite side descend upon you and you dead in seconds. That's why he's listed as hard. If you attack and fail to land a kill, chances are you're dead.

    This is pretty much the thoughts of a lot of people on this board.
    No matter what planet...
    No matter what galaxy...
    They always look up in wonder.
    Some fall to their knees in worship.
    Others hide behind walls and towers.
    But the thing they do best... is beg for mercy.
    It's just... adorable.

    Abandon hope all ye who reply to me!

    Because it's very hard for some people to understand they need HP items and Pythagorem, not Bancroft's trash.

    So? A god's mechanics, strengths and weaknesses don't need to be in the kit.

    Several gods fit that category. How good a god is at avoiding ganks and/or self peeling and how difficult a god is are different subjects.

    Difficulty comes from skillshots in the kit, how difficult the skillshots are to hit based on width/cast time/projectile speed and more importantly how reliant the god is on landing the skillshot. In Anubis's case he is incredibly reliant on hitting mummify, he will live or die based on whether or not he hits it. Mummify gives him great turnaround potential if he lands it. An anubis that misses a majority of his mummifys will will fail miserably while on the other hand an anubis that lands most of his mummifys will be very effective.

    The skill itself is a very difficult skillshot, it is similar to Ullr's axe throw and Thanatos's Death Scythe in that the projectile comes out shortly after the skill is activated and not immediately afterwards (Anhur's impale comes out immediately (almost)). Secondly, The trajectory of the projectile cannot be altered during the short cast time (Comparison: Zeus's chain lightning's trajectory can be changed during the cast time). Thirdly the projectile has a fairly slow projectile speed (compare to Impale).

    Notice that Thanatos is also categorized as "Very Hard" because in his case too his effectiveness or ineffectiveness is determined by whether or not he is able to hit Death Scythe a majority of the time.

    We're talking about difficulty to use a god here, not what you listed.

    If you want to talk kits, then...

    Anubis requires he stands still for 2 of his 4 skills. Therefore, positioning is important, and since Anubis is a mid god, that's incredibly difficult.

    It took me 44 matches with Anubis to get decent. Decent is defined as 50% win loss ratio.
    I used to play He bo, then they nerfed He bo. What now?

    That's why I think he is listed as hard, due to having to stand still to channel abilities which can be interrupted or get him destroyed. (minus ult CC immunity)

    I do think the listing of God difficulty is a tad off for some.
