Toro Item Builds
These items are necessary in order to play Toro optimally. Only diverge from a core item if you are a very experienced player or you have a very good reason for doing so.
|Mantle of Ra||Mantle of Ra will both give Toro some additional farming and bruising potential while also toughening up his defenses. His abilities scale very well with attack damage, so even the small amount that the mantle offers will do quite a bit in adding to his offensive strength.|
|Shield of the Lost||With how close Toro sticks to enemies, he will be able to regularly apply Shield of the Lost’s aura to targets in fights. The stats that it offers are extremely beneficial to the minotaur as well, HP and armor adding greatly to his defensive arsenal.|
|Medallion of Troy||Medallion of Troy is your best bet when fighting off powerful mages. It provides a shield periodically that will stave off enemy magic damage. The item additionally offers health and magic defense to lessen the blow of any abilities that make it through the shield. If this wasn’t enough, it additionally provides cooldown reduction, allowing Toro more regular access to his abilities.|
|The Aegis||Large amounts of armor, mana, and an abundance of cooldown reduction? The Aegis is a great choice for Toro. Its passive will additionally stave off enemy attackers, slowing any that would try to fight with the bull.|
|Gaia’s Standard||Gaia’s Standard provides movement speed, valuable to Toro as it ensures that he can get into range of enemies in order to use his abilities. The regeneration it offers on hit will keep the minotaur up and going in fights and the magic defense will help stave off any mages that might be out to ruin his day.|
|Mail of Pain||Mail of Pain is a great choice when looking to stave off a fed marksman. Beyond the health and armor that it provides, the item reflects a percentage of each attack made on the wearer back onto the attacker.|
|Amulet of Longevity||Amulet of Longevity offers pure HP and lots of it. It additionally buffs up the healing effects that the wearer receives, included from items like Crimson Banner or Gaia’s Standard. Be careful, though, as when the enemy buys items like Fafnir’s Talon that counter high health or regeneration heroes, this item loses effectiveness.|
|Hyoga’s Edge||Hyoga’s Edge is a great way to stick to enemies. Whenever the wielder attacks, the target’s movement speed is lowered while the attacker’s movement speed is increased, making it rather hard for the victim to escape. The item additionally offers good defensive stats across the board, armor, magic resist, and health all included in one package.|
|Crimson Banner||Crimson Banner will keep Toro going when fights drag into long engagements. It restores the wearer’s health each time they score a kill or assist, allowing for tanks like Toro to constantly take up a position in the front lines, absorbing fire for their allies.|
|Spear of Longinus
||A more aggressive item than others on this list, Spear of Longinus can offer some nice utility to Toro’s team. Not only does it offer valuable attack, armor, and cooldown reduction stats, it shreds the armor of those Toro attacks, making them more open to allied fire.This can be a decent choice when going for a more offensive Toro build.|
|Gilded Greaves||Despite his passive allowing him to break from control effects, a bit of extra protection from them doesn’t hurt. In addition, Gilded Greaves provide magic resist, helping Toro deal with otherwise pesky mages.|
|Sonic Boots||Sonic Boots is a good choice when having trouble with enemy marksmen or warriors. The armor and damage reduction that they offer will go far in lessening their assault, especially when the hero in question relies heavily on on-hit effects.|
Sample Item Builds
|Mantle of Ra||Gilded Greaves||Gaia’s Standard||Shield of the Lost||Crimson Guard||Amulet of Longevity|
A basic build designed just to absorb as much damage as possible. Each item bolsters Toro’s defense in some way, beefing him up until he can absorb tons of damage for his team. The regeneration from Crimson Guard, Gaia’s Standard, and Amulet of Longevity will give him a constant stream of health thereby allowing him to stay up and going in fights even after taking the enemy’s punishment. Shield of the Lost and Mantle of Ra will keep him from being completely ignored in fights as well, punishing those that her can get close to with damage and debuffs.
|Mantle of Ra||Gilded Greaves||Spear of Longinus||Gaia’s Standard||Shield of the Lost||Mail of Pain|
This build gives Toro more of an offensive edge with aggressive items like Spear of Longinus. Toro’s abilities scale surprisingly well with attack damage, allowing each small gain to translate into a significant increase in damage. Mail of Pain indirectly adds to his damage with the damage that it reflects, punishing any who try to stop his rampage.
|Mantle of Ra||Gilded Greaves||Tidecaller’s Mark||Gaia’s Standard||Hyoga’s Edge||Shield of the Lost|
