Skud Item Builds

Arena of Valor Skud

Hero Item Builds List

Core Items

These items are necessary in order to play Skud optimally. Only diverge from a core item if you are a very experienced player and/or you have a very good reason for doing so

Arena of Valor Frost Cape
Frost Cape
Arena of Valor Omni Arms
Omni Arms
Frost Cape contributes to Skud’s impressive disruption ability, adding a slow to his arsenal. He will completely rule the flow of battle while also able to take more punishment from the enemy team through the health and armor the item provides.

Alternatively, players may want to go all in on Skud’s offensive potential and grab Omni Arms instead. He is already a powerhouse when it comes to crowd control, so losing one slow won’t be the biggest tragedy in the world. The jump from 150 extra damage to a 100% attack damage boost is huge, though, allowing the brawler to one-hit squishier foes.

Optional Items

Offensive Item Choices

Arena of Valor Spear of Longinus
Spear of Longinus
If you’re having trouble against tanky enemies that build up armor, you can opt for a Spear of Longinus. This item will help you shred through your enemy’s armor and go toe to toe with them with the added Armor bonus of the item.
Arena of Valor Fenrir's Tooth
Fenrir’s Tooth
Fenrir’s Tooth is a good option when your team is already rather durable and in need of more damage. It provides the most amount of attack damage in the game, and if that weren’t enough, amplifies damage further when the enemy’s health is low. This applies to damage that doesn’t scale with attack damage as well, such as the health based damage dealt by Wild Beast Fury.

Defensive Items Choices

Arena of Valor Shield of the Lost
Shield of the Lost
As he will constantly find himself in the middle of fights, Shield of the Lost can be a good choice for Skud. It offers an impressive amount of armor and health to make the wearer exceptionally durable. More importantly, however, it provides a debuffing aura that slows the attack of all nearby enemies. This will not only give Skud an easier time dealing with them himself, but help out all of his allies as well.
Arena of Valor Rankbreaker
Rankbreaker is a great way to rip through enemy armor, especially early game. High amounts of armor pierce will let Skud do nearly true damage to squishier foes, providing the chance to snowball early and turn into a damaging monster. The movement speed that the item provides outside of battle will additionally help Skud move between lanes and reeach battles that started without his presence.
Arena of Valor Hyoga's Edge
Hyoga’s Edge
Another powerful way to slow down enemies, Hyoga’s Edge will debuff enemies Skud attacks without regard to if he had just used an ability. In addition, it speeds up the wielder when they attack as well as provide them with an array of defensive stats. Hyoga’s Edge isn’t necessarily an alternative to Frost Cape either, the two slowing passive abilities stacking.
Arena of Valor Mantle of Ra
Mantle of Ra
As someone who will be diving into the middle of fights to rough up opponents, Mantle of Ra can be very valuable to Skud. It empowers his attack strength while also toughening his skin to physical damage. In addition, it provides a damaging aura that burns away the health of enemies stuck next to the brawler.
Arena of Valor Mail of PainMail of Pain
Mail of Pain is a fantastic way to stave off physical enemies, particularly enemy marksmen. It provides health and armor along with a passive that reflects a portion of damage he receives back to the attacker.
Arena of Valor Medallion of Troy
Medallion of Troy
While almost purely defensive in nature, Medallion of Troy should only be skipped if the enemy team lacks a mage. It is a great value when it comes to stats, offering not only survival but some cooldown reduction as well. The magic shield it offers is icing on the cake, forcing mages to commit to an attack before Skud even begins to feel their damage.
Arena of Valor Amulet of Longevity
Amulet of Longevity
Not only does Amulet of Longevity offer tremendous amounts of survivability through health, it synergizes well with Skud’s passive. Having a higher health pool will naturally increase the amount he heals whenever it procs, but the Amulet additionally amplifies healing the wearer receives to increase it further.

Sample Item Builds

This build leans a bit more into Skud’s offensive side while still maintaining enough survivability to survive enemy harassment. Rankbreaker, Omni Arms, and Fenrir’s Tooth allow Skud to be rather aggressive in fights, amplifying his damage to rather respectable levels. Even the more defensive items like Medallion of Troy and Mail of Pain add a bit of aggressive edge through the cooldown reduction and damage reflection they offer respectively

Here we build up Skud’s survivability with a number of items that debuff enemies. Frost Cape and Hyoga’s Edge will slow any he attacks to a crawl, leaving them open to Skud’s allies. They will have little choice of fighting back either, Shield of the Lost weakening their offensive potential.

This build doubles down on Skud’s defensive potential, outfitting him purely to absorb enemy fire as he disrupts enemies. While certainly able to be built as to deal quite a bit of damage, he is perfectly able to contribute to his team when playing more as a tank. Every item buffs up his defenses in some way, be it through armor, magic defense, or health. Between Frost Cape, Medallion of Troy, and The Aegis, Skud is able to hit max cooldown speed. As a result, he will be able to throw out abilities very regularly to displace enemies and set up kills for his team.

  1. I use a really aggressive build with no defensive items so i can basically 2 shot low health characters by using my charged attack for that one punch that takes off like 60-90 of a weak character and maybe 33-50 on tanks. Very good initiator and changing the tables by killing the ranged heroes in 2 shots. But no survivability…

  2. Damage build:
    Rankbreaker-Hermes select-Omni arms-Shield of the lost( can be replaced by Mail of Pain)-Medallion of Troy ( can be replaced by Gaia’s Standard)-Fenrir Tooth
    Max the 2nd skill
