Raz Item Builds
These items are necessary in order to play Raz optimally. Only diverge from a core item if you are a very experienced player or you have a very good reason for doing so
|Boomstick is an essential item for Raz, granting each of his abilities an additional explosion effect. The increase in damage this offers is great and will go far in maximizing Raz’s potential.|
|While not offering any utility or defense, Hecate’s Diadem has a greater ability power potential than any other single item. Not only does it boast a huge base ability power bonus, it increases the amount that the wielder gains from other sources as well.|
Offensive Item Choices
|As a melee mage, Raz needs a bit of survivability to make it through fights. Rhea’s Blessing helps in this regard both with magic life steal and a shield. The magic life steal will help Raz out between fights, giving him a way to refresh his health. The shield it offers is a great help in closer fights, helping the boxer squeak out a victory when his health is low.|
|Holy of Holies offers a fantastic amount of ability power along with a nice boost to the wielder’s HP. While it doesn’t offer any special effect to the user, the stat value that Holy of Holies offers is too good to ignore.|
|Orb of the Magi provides a number of beneficial stats along with a very useful restoration of health each time the wearer levels up. While not always essential to Raz, especially since he does not benefit from the mana boost the item provides, it can still be a very useful tool for him when laning and roaming around the map.|
|As someone who enjoys bringing his fist into enemy faces, Raz can get a lot of mileage out of Apocalypse. This works both with attacks empowered or unempowered by his passive.|
Defensive Items Choices
|When facing mages who have started to snowball, Medallion of Troy can keep you in the game. It offers a tremendous amount of protection from magic both in the form of magic defense and a magic blocking shield provided every few seconds. It additionally offers some health and cooldown reduction to avoid being too much of a situational item.|
|Berith’s Agony grants both ability power and armor to the user along with cooldown speed. This is a good way to fend off enemy physical attackers without too much of a sacrifice to damage. The health-percentage damage bonus is a nice plus to give Raz’s fireballs a bit more bite.|
|You can take Ancestral Glory if regularly burst down or focused in fights. The revival it offers its wielder is a great way to keep a fight going and punish the enemy for jumping on you.|
|Enchanted Kicks provide magic pierce and therefore are a great choice when trying to maximize his damage potential.|
|Gilded Greaves are a good defensive option, shortening the amount of time he spends affected by crowd control. As someone who wants to be regularly moving, Raz is not particularly fond of anything that slows him down.|
Sample Item Builds
This build has Raz going (nearly) all in on offense. Every item provides to his offense in some way, Boomstick, Hecate’s Diadem, and Holy of Holies doing the most through large amounts of ability power. He will have a bit of defensive beef to him, though, Frosty’s Revenge providing some magic defense and Rhea’s Blessing offering a shield should his health fall too far.
|Orb of the Magi||Enchanted Kicks||Boomstick||Rhea’s Blessing||Hecate’s Diadem||Berith’s Agony|
This build gives Raz a lot more defense, helping him stay up and going in rough fights. Orb of the Magi starts Raz off with lots of health along with a regenerative effect to keep him up longer. His defenses are further bolstered by Rhea’s Blessing and Berith’s Agony, allowing him to take some punishment as he runs into enemy range. His damage will still hit rather high levels despite this, Boomstick and Hecate’s Diadem still included to provide their large ability power offerings.
