Hello all this is my first guide for Hades. (Heads up: this guide is not for killing its for support and tanking)
Stay in your lane, push until you are level 5 and conserve your mana. When you hit 5 a good ol' Death from Below, , Pillar of Agony combo will take out any non jumping enemy with the help of your partner of course. If you feel confident of not dying instead of grabbing lv. 2 Reinforced Boots and two health potions. Instead you could grab lv. 1 Reinforced Boots and Meditation to keep in lane till maybe lv. 9.
Mid game you want to take at least one of the towers on your lane down and then try to gank whenever the chance arises. If not just stay your lane, declare MIAs and tank your lane. Keep an eye out for gankers because mid game you're still a little squishy.
Late game this build isn't high in damage dealing so soloing isn't too bright. This class is high support so keep close to the stronger members of your team. However with all the items in the build you can just take damage, tank towers/minions and hold off a lane that has a phoenix down by yourself. If you want to be sneaky you and one other high damage god could sneak behind for a high risk phoenix dive. Hades at late game with all recommended gear can tank the phoenix for a good amount of time so with a high damage god at your side the phoenix is a good as dead. By tower dive i mean sneak behind a group of enemy minions and rush the phoenix through the jungle. Only do this if you have at least 1 enemy down and the other four are accounted for at a good enough distance away. I recommend a god like Artemis, Bakasura, Bastet, or Odin. Again this is high risk and high reward.
As Hades is a tank you should initiate team fights. You want to start with a Death from Below, , Pillar of Agony combo but make sure everyone is ready because if not, you'll be in the middle of the enemy team with Death from Below on cooldown and you'll either die or have a lot of running to do.
High damage dealing gods with long range ults are preferable but anyone who can lay down damage fast works too. Zeus, Artemis, Anubis, Ymir, Bakasura works well with Hades.Also a good partner is Odin with his Ring of Spears against any non jumpers.
Gods that counter Hades are Anubis and Bakasura as they have high damage that cuts through Hades' defenses like butter. Therefore try to avoid 1v1s with them and strafe like hell to avoid Anubis' Mummify. Also anyone who can jump is a pain for your ult.
This is my guide on Hades I hope it's helps and you enjoy using him as much as I do. Have fun out there slaughtering gods. If there is anything else you need to know as far as other situations please ask away.
P.s. Any feed back will be appreciated.
P.s.s. Never surrender
This is the usual default build for taking damage like a pro, giving you the best chance to escape almost everything.
Use this if the enemy team has a majority of casters and magic dealers. Try to finish warlock sash Asap.
Use this if the enemy team has a many physical damage dealers.
I don't do it often but here is a magic build in case you get bored. Start with Boots of the Magi lv. 1 then get meditation and some potions. then go for Warlock's Sash. Finish sash first for stacks then finish boots. Play more on the Cautious side. Use when paired with odin to take out gods like they were mere ants fighting the russian armies great soviet damage.
