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.

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.

This build focuses completely on survivability, making Cresht into a near invincible terror on the battlefield. The Aegis and Crimson Banner provide some coverage from physical damage while Gilded Greaves and Gaia’s Standard protect the sea best from magical assault. Tidecaller’s Mark will give Cresht some additional support potential along with its defensive stats, allowing Cresht some use beyond standing as a damage sponge.

Watch Rest explain his build here.

This build is heavily centered around roaming around the map to assist allies when laning and for getting into the center of larger fights whenever they break out. Cresht will be incredibly tanky, able to hold onto the front line and keep enemies away from his allies.

Are the support items viable on cresht? I was thinking if you use the shield active ability thing you could give a tank on your team a shield and in conjunction you use cresht ult so you have two strong tanks.
