2x Tyrants Monocle,
2x Tyrants Monocle,
1 Defense item of choice,
Thought behind this build:
Due to the heroic perk baptiste has, he will get +35% weapon damage after landing 4 hits, so I made this a high damage build. This build gives you:
100% Critical hit chance
80% Crit damage (base stats calculated in)
~220% Attack speed (!)(base stats calculated in)
+195 weapon damage (without breaking point stacks)
+445 weapon damage (with breaking point stacks)
Alternatively you can switch the BP with a Sorrow blade, which will allow you to disingage, which I don’t particularly recommend against some enemies. But it will be helpful against slippery enemies. If you wanna be more tanky, then switch out the TT for another defense item.
Core: Shatterglass, Clockwork, Broken Myth
Halcyon Boots and 1 Defense item.
Core items+2 defense items+Halcyon boots
This build makes use of Baptistes boost to ability damage due to his heroic perk, also of his life gained from soul fragments. I found this build to be hard to make kills with in team fights, because its just that bursty, but you should go off with a few wins and a bath of assists. Abilities should do around 700 damage (in glass)to enemies without aegis(vice versa) once you get 4 soul fragments.
Difficult to make captain builds, so I am just gonna talk about very viable items.
You’ll be tanky, so you’ll stay longer at the front lines, which can boost your CP into laner lvl, good pick.
I mean, it’s good and all, but you shouldn’t be dealing damage anyway, so this pick is to me overshadowed by the almighty contraption.
Gives great boosts to HP and cooldown, also counters Taka, Kestrel and Flicker, so it’s quite situational. Although if you are a mine/vision fanatic like me, then this is a must-have. Baptiste will make good use of the cooldown reduction, which only makes this item better.
Baptiste will have trouble facing off against a captain, so if the enemy captain is being an ass you can just use this… And it also has a cooldown reduction if I’m not mistaken
If you wanna go full utility and also bully the enemy captain, then this is a must-have. Oh, don’t worry, this also gives cooldown reduction.
Now that I have talked about all the items I should tell you how to focus during a team fight with CP and Captain Baptiste. So, you land the B on the most slippy hero(Taka, Vox, Koshka, etc), the A on the front line fighter, ignore the captain unless you can bully with Nullwave or Aftershock.
And with that, thanks for reading! Good luck in the Halcyon Arena of violent death.
