Chaugnar Item Builds
These items are near necessary to play Chaugnar optimally. Only diverge from them after getting a good grasp of the character and items’ situations.
|Frosty’s Revenge||Frosty’s Revenge is a must have item for Chaugnar. The item provides a bit of additional health to the tank as well as a boost to his movement speed. More importantly, this item gives his damaging abilities an additional slowing effect. This helps him stick to high priority targets as long as he keeps hitting them with Energy Surge and Shockwave.|
|The Aegis||A perfect fit for Chaugnar, The Aegis offers large amounts of armor, mana, and cooldown reduction. If the stats alone weren’t enough (they pretty much are) the item additionally slows any who would dare attack the majestic chaos elephant, lowering their damage potential and movement speed.|
|Frost Cape||Frost Cape is a great item that buffs up defense against physical damage. Moreover, its Frost Power passive grants Chaugnar with yet another slow. After he casts an ability while he has Frost Cape, his next normal attack will slow and deal additional damage.|
|Water Stone||Chaugnar nar can find a lot of use in the support items, particularly of the water line. He lines to get close to allies and enemies, causing the aural nature of the items to be a particularly good fit for him. Both items that are built from Water Stone can be good choices, their necessity based on the enemy team’s line up.|
|Orb of the Magi||Offering health, mana, and cooldown reduction, Orb of the Magi is a great starting item for Chaugnar. The on-level refresh that it offers can keep him out on the field in between skirmishes as well, allowing him more gold and experience. Buy the item early, however, as it needs time to build up to full power. If lagging behind in farm or needing to move on to his other items, simply grabbing Phoenix Tear and foregoing Orb of the Magi is an acceptable alternative.|
|Soaring Aura||Soaring Aura is an offensive item that strips away opponents’ magic defense. This is great for Chaugnar, allowing he and his allies’ abilities to do more damage to nearby enemies.|
|Gaia’s Standard||Offering loads of utility to the support, Gaia’s Standard is a great defensive choice. The item provides magic defense first and foremost, offering some durability when facing mages. Chaugnar will find quite a bit more use from the item’s regeneration and movement boosts. The item heals the wearer each time they take damage, allowing them some sustain after scuffles. The movement speed boost is just what it sounds like, but this can be a big help to Chaugnar, allowing him to get near allies in need of cleansing or better aim his Power Surge.|
|Medallion of Troy||Medallion of Troy gives Chaugnar further coverage against magic damage dealers. It provides a protective shield that absorbs magic damage every 18 seconds which can be very important to his survivability. The health and cooldown reduction it provides are big helps to Chaugnar as well.|
|Hyoga’s Edge||Just like Frost Cape, Hyoga’s Edge provides Chaugnar’s normal attacks a slow. This allows him to stick close to high priority targets while also protecting Chaugnar from their attacks with its impressive defensive stats.|
||Gilded Greaves is a good defensive boots upgrade, especially when dealing with multiple sources of hard disables. Even with his passive and ultimate, Chaugnar can still be stunned when focused by opponents when his abilities are down. Gilded Greaves can help him stave off the control effects thanks to its resistance boost.|
|Sonic Boots||Sonic Boots is a good boots choice for Chaugnar. While his abilities allow him to shrug off disables, Chaugnar is susceptible to physical damage. This boots upgrade helps him deal with marksmen and junglers who rely on normal attacks.|
Sample Item Builds
|Orb of the Magi||Gilded Greaves||Frosty’s Revenge||The Aegis||Gaia’s Standard||Holy of Holies|
Here we build up both Chaugnar’s ability power and survivability, coming close to turning him into a magical bruiser. Chaugnar will play similarly to Ormarr with this build, roaming around the map and setting up kills for his team. While stacked on damage with items like Orb of the Magi and Holy of Holies, he won’t be the one finishing enemies off. Enemies will have a very hard time escaping from the elephant, however, Gaia’s Standard and Frosty’s Revenge both speeding him up as he stampedes forward, while Frosty’s Revenge additionally slows down any that get caught under foot.
Here we ditch the idea of damaging enemies nearly completely and instead move Chaugnar to intercept as much enemy damage as he can. The elephant’s skin will be even thicker than usual with Tidecaller’s Mark, The Aegis, and Medallion of Troy buffing up his defensive potential. Enemies will have a hard time avoiding the tank as well, Frosty’s Revenge and Hyoga’s Edge both
As Chaos Protection and Void Cleanse shorten the cooldowns of Chaugnar’s abilities by flat amounts, he can benefit exceptionally well from a full 40% cooldown reduction, which was our goal here. When under the effects of Chaos Protection, Shockwave will be down to a 0.6 second cooldown and thereby incredibly spammable. We don’t have to go too far out of our way to hit this magic 40% either, Orb of the Magi and The Aegis already bringing the elephant up to 40%. Berith’s Agony seemed like a natural choice for the final 10%, offering some additional durability along with some extra oomph to his abilities.
|Orb of the Magi||Sonic Boots||Frosty’s Revenge||The Aegis||Soaring Aura||Medallion of Troy|
more damage, more expensive, still tanky
|Phoenix Tear||Sonic Boots||Frosty’s Revenge||The Aegis||Gaia’s Standard||Mail of Pain|
pretty cheap build, pretty tanky

|Leviathan||Sonic Boots||The Aegis||Medallion of Troy||Berith’s Agony||Blade of Eternity|
|Orb of the Magi||Enchanted Kicks||Tome of the Reaper||Berith’s Agony||Soaring Aura||Frosty’s Revenge|
