Aggresive

Notes This build only works if you know how to use Hercules and I don't recommend using it on ranked either (just if you know what you are doing)

Can swap Genji's Guard with Amulet of the Stronghold if u lack some defense
Phalanx it's a really good item, make sure to buy it instead of Gladiator's Shield if you see that the enemy solo laner bought it

Actives

Notes Scorching Blink Rune Works really good with Hercules giving you a lot of opportunities to engage in teamfights

Heroic Teleport Really useful on team rotations, secure objectives, catch bad positioned enemies, etc.

Temporal Beads not mandatory to build but it's really helpful against hard cc comps

Sundering Blast it's a really strong active against tanks or any god in particular, try to use it when they are with max health

Alternatives

Notes Caduceus Club I don't recommend this item with Hercules but it can be used in replace of Golden Blade as a defensive/offensive option. Works better if the enemy team has no antiheal

Spectral Armor Perfect item against junglers with crits, like Mercury or Serquet and adc's

Contagion Really good stats on this item but it's difficult to use on this builds, just buy it if your team doesn't have any or the enemy team has a lot of self/healing

Midgardian Mail Powerful item that it's worth to buy only if the enemy team comp has a lot of physical damage on it
