Y’bneth Item Builds
These items are necessary in order to play Y’bneth optimally. Only diverge from a core item if you are a very experienced player or you have a very good reason for doing so.
|With needs for both attack damage and durability, hybrid items like Mantle of Ra are good picks for Y’bneth. The item grants some extra utility to the tree beast, synergizing with Nature’s Realm to greatly damage nearby foes.|
|Did someone say more control? Why yes please. Frost Cape is a nice hybrid item that both bolsters defenses while providing some additional damage and a slow to attacks made after ability casts. This can help Y’bneth trap enemies, making it easier for enemies to follow up with their own damage or from Y’bneth to bombard them with a stream of seeds.|
|Spear of Longinus is another nice hybrid item which allows Y’bneth to peal away layers of armor from its opponents each time it deals damage. Nature’s Realm’s rapid-fire attacks are a great way to take away enemy armor. The large amount of cooldown reduction that the item offers will help Y’bneth use abilities more frequently and thereby activate Redwood Rush often.|
|Y’bneth excels at damaging enemies up close with Nature’s Realm, but can struggle when dealing with those at a range. Mail of Pain helps defend against ranged auto attackers like marksmen by reflecting some damage back at them. The item additoinally provides armor and health, helping defend against physical damage whenever the damage reflection isn’t enough to stave off attackers.|
|While Mail of Pain will keep physical attackers at bay, Medallion of Troy will defend against magic attacks. In addition to its hefty defensive stats, the item offers a shield which will stack with that of Nature’s Realm to keep enemies from even reaching Y’bneth’s health. In addition, the cooldown reduction that the item offers allows Y’bneth more reliable access to Redwood Rush.|
|With its heavy reliance on a high max HP, Y’bneth can greatly benefit from the huge amounts of health that Amulet of Longevity provides. The amplification of health bonuses will improve the damage and shield bonus that Y’bneth enjoys with its abilities while additonally increasing the amount of health received from Natural Affinity and Nature’s Realm.|
Sample Item Builds
|Mantle of Ra||Gilded Greaves||Frost Cape||Medallion of Troy||Mail of Pain||Amulet of Longevity|
This is a rather durable build, leaning close to being a full tank but still holding enough damage that Y’bneth will be able to get into enemy teams and rough people up. Mantle of Ra and Frost Cape will give Y’bneth the ability to rough up enemies and keep them in place in fights. Meanwhile, the rest of the build will give Y’bneth incredibly thick skin… bark? so that it can withstand enemy attacks in its onslaught.
This build is more offensively minded, allowing for a much more aggressive playstyle. The addition of Spear of Longinus and Fenrir’s Tooth will up Y’bneth’s attack power and therefore the effectiveness of its abilities. Y’bneth can be a terrifying force with a bit of offensive might, its abilities trapping enemies as it tears away at their health.
|Leviathan||Gilded Greaves||Frost Cape||Gaia’s Standard||Shield of the Lost||Amulet of Longevity|
Here we focus on Y’bneth’s HP and regeneration. Given the HP scaling of Redwood Rush and Nature’s Realm, Y’bneth benefits greatly from a robust health pool. Nature’s Realm and Natural Affinity additionally provide some health regeneration as well, so items that assist with restoring lost HP synergize well with the tank. The main thing to look out for here is enemies holding Tome of the Reaper or Curse of Death, as they will quickly bring Y’bneth’s fun time to a close.
