Cresht Item Builds
These items are necessary in order to play Cresht optimally. Only diverge from a core item if you are a very experienced player or you have a very good reason for doing so.
|Gaia’s Standard offers a great amount of sustain, healing Cresht as he tanks for his team. The regular regeneration of HP will keep him in fights and protecting allies for a long time, boosting his overall ability to contribute to his team as a result. It additionally assist him with mobility, something he needs to stay near squishier allies.|
|Knight’s Plate offers a decent amount of armor as well as rather valuable passive that will punish any who try to engage the wearer. Each item that Knight’s Plate builds into is a useful addition to Cresht’s kit, The Aegis a better choice when looking for a bit more utility through abilities while Shield of the Lost offers more when it comes to overall defensive potential.|
Offensive Item Choices
|Mantle of Ra is a hybrid item that can offer a bit of additional farming potential along with a decent amount of armor. The item will additonally increase his overall presence in fights, damaging enemies as they try to rip him down.|
|Spear of Longinus provides both health to assist in tanking and damage to keep up in fights. The cooldown reduction is a huge help to the mana-less Cresht, allowing him to cast his abilities more freely. Spear of Longinus will additionally strip away armor from the target each time the wielder attacks, making it a great way to soften up enemies for your allies.|
Defensive Items Choices
|Amulet of Longevity amplifies the healing the wearer receives from all sources, including other tanking items like Gaia’s Standard or Crimson Banner. This will improve Cresht’s ability to sustain himself in team fights while giving a large boost to his HP pool.|
|If taking a supportive role on the team, Cresht can find quite a bit of use in Water Gem and its upgrade paths. It will make him much more effective at babysitting his team by providing them benefits when nearby as well as improving their overall gold gains.|
|Hyoga’s Edge slows targets while providing a speed buff to its wielder as they attack. This item also provides armor, magic defense, and HP, making it a very good source of defensive stats.|
|Crimson Banner offers a lot of benefits to bruisers and front-liners like Cresht. It gives both armor and HP, while its unique passive allows Cresht to sustain himself as he goes in and out fights.|
|Medallion of Troy offers Cresht a lot of protection from magic damage. The additional health and cooldown reduction are both perfect for him as well, allowing him to regularly deal out spells and take damage.|
Sample Item Builds
[Added 9/13/2018] This build has been seen in professional leagues and in a recent video by Darkbreaker. It puts Cresht in the solo lane, relying on Mantle of Ra for wave clear. In addition, because Cresht needs to auto-attack in order to build his ultimate anyway, the first few items help boost his attack, with Omni Arms adding an extra kick in its Elemental Power passive. Between Mantle of Ra, Medallion of Troy, and Blade of Eternity, Cresht should have reasonable defense as well, particularly because you’ll be able to pop your ult much more often.
|Tidecaller’s Mark||Gilded Greaves||Gaia’s Standard||Crimson Banner||The Aegis||Amulet of Longevity|
This build allows Cresht to play as a support, peeling enemies away from his allies. Tidecaller’s mark is an essential item for this type of build, providing buffs to his allies while hindering his enemies. The other items will beef him up with hefty defensive stats and effects.
