Zeus Items build
Hurls a bolt of lightning that leaps through nearby enemy units.
Calls down a bolt of lightning to strike an enemy unit, causing damage and a mini-stun. When cast, Lightning Bolt briefly provides unobstructed vision and True Sight around the target in a 750 radius. Can be cast on the ground, affecting the closest enemy hero in 325 range.
Zeus shocks any enemy hit by his abilities, causing damage proportional to their current health.
Strikes all enemy heroes with a bolt of lightning, no matter where they may be. Thundergod’s Wrath also provides True Sight around each hero struck. If an enemy hero is invisible, it takes no damage, but the True Sight is still created at that hero’s location.
STATIC FIEL – DSHARD ABILITY UPGRADE
Static Field can be cast to perform a Heavenly Jump, shocking the closest visible enemy (prioritizing heroes) within 2000 range, dealing Static Field damage to them and reducing their movement speed by 100% for 2.5 seconds. If Zeus was moving forward, he will jump towards that direction. Cooldown: 11. Manacost: 100.
NIMBUS – SCEPTER GRANTS NEW ABILITY
Creates a storm cloud anywhere on the map that automatically casts Lightning Bolt on nearby enemies.
Zeus’s Skill Order
Skill Order: Arc Lightning -> Lightning Bolt -> Thundergod’s Wrath -> Static Field.
Heroes combo: Zeus + Ancient Apparition
Zeus’s Tips and tricks
Lightning Bolt has a ministun which allows you to cancel channels.
If you target the ground with Lightning Bolt from the fog of war, you won’t reveal yourself to the enemy who gets hit by it. If you directly target them, they’ll get vision of you.
If an enemy you are chasing is about to escape your vision, cast Lightning Bolt on the ground right beside them rather than targeting their hero directly.
Zeus can dominate lanes, take easy kills, deal massive damage and give vision to your team for easy ganks. He is not very item-dependent but can benefit greatly from them.
Lord of Heaven, father of gods, Zeus treats all the Heroes as if they are his rambunctious, rebellious children. After being caught unnumbered times in the midst of trysts with countless mortal women, his divine wife finally gave him an ultimatum: ‘If you love mortals so much, go and become one. If you can prove yourself faithful, then return to me as my immortal husband. Otherwise, go and die among your creatures.’ Zeus found her logic (and her magic) irrefutable, and agreed to her plan. He has been on his best behavior ever since, being somewhat fonder of immortality than he is of mortals. But to prove himself worthy of his eternal spouse, he must continue to pursue victory on the field of battle.
