Build Summary

Notes You can either stay with Manikin Scepter to the end or you can switch it to Typhons Fang if you want to have more lifesteal. If you buy Spear Of Magus or Perfected Rod of Tahuti is to your liking. I usually stick with Spear of Magus.

Extended Build

Introduction:

I love to play an unsusual jungle and it has a few positive things to do something like that. The main point is:

Your enemys don´t know how to act or what to do.

Play this build just like that:

Skills: First do your 1 to go invisible (preferable in the jungle next to the lane you want to gank). Then do your 2 to get your dragons ready and right before you start to attack your enemy hit him with your 3. The rest is basic attacks. Usually it takes about 2-3 seconds to get your enemys so low that you can use your ultimate on him.

The fact that every hit you do (because of scepter) deals ticking damage is one of the reaons that this build is great to face the enemy jungle early on. Just bear in mind, that you should do the first hit ;-)!

Works very good with every god that can stun and you will have a hard time at the beginning with gods that can stun you.

Pros / Cons

+ You can kill an enemy almost instantly and the leave the fight with your ultimate
+ High speed and damage outut with basic attacks (even more with your 2)


- Vunerable at the start of the round
- If you have a mage on your solo you should not play Ao Kuang as jungle

Items

You can actually change a few items in the build, depending on your liking. I personally wouldn´t change the four rings because of the passiv and the attack speed.

You could change Scepter for another lifesteal-item, but I would wait for it until the very last item. The ticks from it give you a great advantage at the beginning of the round. Especially against the enemy jungle.

For the relics:

Cloak of Meditation: Just for the extra heal at the beginning. I like to play it if someone needs a gank and my life is not full. Just for safety.

Blink: Combine it with your 1. You are still invisible by the time you can use it again. Great for long distances.

Potion of Power for the late game. Mana und Healing Potion if you need it.

Creeping / Jungling

Just like written above, the best thing is to use your 1 to move out of the jungle and gank the lane. You should just wait and time it right, because the sound it makes alarms most of the enemys (they will be very cautious if you succeded before).

Then 2, 3 and then your Ultimate.

Your main goal in the jungle is to reach level 5 pretty fast. Before level 5 you will have a hard time. Your ultimate is your "get out of jail"-card if you a fighting 2 or 3 enemys.

Team Work

Works really really well with gods that can stun. The stun is the guaranted death for your enemy because of your attack speed and your ultimate.

For example:

Hunters:
Neith
Artemis

Tanks:
Ares
Cerberus

Warriors:
Chaac (ultimate)

I start with the third skill, then the first and then the second. I raise the third to the maximum and then the second to do a lot of direct damage soon. Blink first and teleport later.
