LIFESTEAL

Notes Crimson Claws works really good on the early/mid game with that extra shield from the passive without to mention the extra 20% atk spd which is a lot tbh

Can replace Bloodforge with Demon Blade if u like it better

Alternatives

Notes Arondight: Strong late game item that can be exchanged for Golden Blade really useful on any type of game with really good stats

Bladed Boomerang: With the new changes on Devoted Deathbringer having extra crit becomes worth it, which makes this item really good on the early/mid game with the extra atk spd, mov spd and crit
One of the best items for merc that provides a lot of mobility with it's passive allowing you to kill various targets really fast, but remember to always combine it with Bloodforge (+10% extra movement speed and shield after a kill)

Dominance A key item against tanks with really good stats for any assassin, highly recommended

Magi's Cloak Defensive item against hard cc comps, allowing you to get close to any target without getting cc'd instantly

Intro


Mercury
"Messenger of the Gods"



This is one of my favorites junglers in the game, extremely fun to play and easy to understand

His late-game is one of, if not the best of any junglers in the game, due to his passive combined with crits, in addition to the rest of his abilities that grants him a strong 1v1 potential and the capacity to enter into teamfights and get out quickly

Remember that the builds are situational and you can buy whatever you want

I hope this build helps you with your games and have fun!

Tips

Tips for Mercury in general gameplay

  • Don't face the enemy team, be smart and try to get them from their backline
  • Try to pick up single ganks on the duo lane or solo, using your ult to enter if necessary
  • When using your 3 on an enemy god try to face a wall or throw them into your team cc
  • Use your extra mobility to enter a teamfight and get out quickly, this will do some pressure into the enemy carrys while your team gets some better space to fight freely
  • With Merc, getting close to your targets with your ult it's the most important and difficult thing to do, remember to never fully charge it, unless you hit a wall behind the target, always try to hit them with the edge of your ult
