How to make Ares proud?

14 replies 1523 views Edited Mar 22, 2013

Already got my Zeus at level 30, of course I'm not a pro with it but I'm feeling like rolling with Ares now.

The first thing I saw is that Ares is the oppose of Zeus, since the first is all about magic with low health/defense, Ares is all about physical damage with low health/defense, I know it can be ballanced with armors and weapons, plus relics and magics... that's why I'm here! Any tips, guys?

Actually I'm at level 7, using:

 

Helm of Athena

Armor of Odysseus

Legs of Odysseus

Weapon - Mercenary Sword

 

Relic of Brutality

Eye of the Wolf

Ares Inferno

 

My first doubt here is about Relics and Magics, I can be wrong but I havent found any of the Ares' magics usefull, like, linking it with a combo or something.

The Relic of Brutality is about I like grapple combos and **bleep**, and the Eye of the Wolf because I found it nice to combo with my square combos (lol).

Right...

Armor of Fury - Full set (lvl 3 = +15% cool-down reduction)
Relic of Ares Might
Eye of the Wolf
Ares Inferno

Champion's/Gladiator's Blade - combined with Armor of Fury let's you unleash Special Moves with lethal efficiency due to short cool-down.
Why Gladiator's Blade and not any other weapon? Simply, Ares is all about close combat and personal message to your guts. Smiley Wink

Im lvl 30 Ares and with this set I'm pretty deadly. So thats my input.

Same items, but with full battle armor and either sword/blade.

Mels 75% of most enemy health in 1 combo.

I love ares magic when he does the one punch and it sends players flying, even better when it's leveled up and leaves a mine on them that explodes seconds later. It's great for ring outs

Try the Artemis armour. It does reduce health but gives you more power than the battle armour. And when Artemis armour is level 3, health is reduced only one.

Ares inferno is the best magic IMO, because when maxed out you get two goes with it

Full Artemis armour and Cronos blade did it for me, I leveled up pretty hard and started to use the lvl 9 sword wich made it even better. currently having my Ares at 20 I'm using the first helmet unlock for Ares with body armour of Artemis with first unlock lower armour for Ares together with the lvl 9 sword is pretty strong for awhile until higher lvl IMO.

Thanks POL_SouL the fury armor works great. I wanted to use it because I liked the furies but wasn't sure, but it's amazing so far. The weapon I'm using though is the Cerberus blade which is great. Once I finish leveling it up I'll work on the sword of Ares.

No problem CBreeze5g, glad I could help. And yes, whatever weapon (sword/blade) you use with this set will do excellent job dispatching enemies. Not so much with hammers. Although Maul of Ares is very good as well, but special attacks cool-down even with Fury set is pretty bad.
