This guide is to give you a general foundation to build off of. Understand my guides will be generic in build but these builds/guides will give you a general start. Thank you and hope it helps. You can follow me on twitch.tv/gplxys if you want to see me play these in-game.

PASSIVE - While not near an ally god you gain 1 stack of Benevolence every second, up to a maximum of 50. Assists provide 4 stacks. While within 70 units of a hurt ally god you use up to 5 stacks a second to heal them and yourself for 0.75% of your Maximum Health. Each stack consumed provide you with 1 gold. If you overcap stacks they will still provide gold as long as you are near an ally god. Can be upgraded at level 17.

Notes

Depending on your playstyle you can either go "Sentinel's Gift" or "Benevolence" with Tier one (Glowing Emerald) of "Gauntlet of Thebes" at the beginning.

The reason I mainly choose "Benevolence" is for the passive heal it gives at its tier 1 form once you enter the lane.

The alternative is "Sentinel's Gift" for its protections which gives you the option to push and be more aggressive.

All supports should (not saying you have to be it's commonly recommended) build "Gauntlet of Thebes"

My general relic choice (currently) is either "Meditation" or "Horrific Emblem".

Meditation gives you great sustain in duo lane and enables you to sustain during a fight for both aggressive and defensive situations.

Horrific gives you the option to counter if the enemy duo pushes too far, and enables you to turn the fight or get their relics out of it.

The default start (currently as of 8.9) for consumables is 4 health or multi-pots and Hand of the Gods (HOG).

Notes

Please understand this is a very generic build to use just to give you a good general start. Counter builds are a big part of the game but you need to understand the gods you are facing and whether they are physical or magical. Once you understand that, the game then changes and makes item choices very situational based upon the damage in the game. Also, these are the 5 relics I usually look at building when in-game (depending on what they have in their team).

Defensive Builds
Notes

These two builds will be the options I would generally go if you are facing more physical or magical. Hopefully, they will help you in the game!

Notes

If they are running double hunter you can pick up "Midguardian Mail" and "Hide of Nemean Lion". There are a lot of options to deal with physical builds typically because the generic team composition consists of 3 physical and 2 magical.

Notes

Ganesha is strongest against most of these gods because he can run through player-made walls with his 3 and his 2 can cancel invisibility if the enemy walks through your 2 cone. Also, anyone that has an animation where it makes their character immobile (Anubis ult, Mulan ult) makes them an easy target for Ganesha ult.

Notes

Typically anyone with excessive healing/execute/shred/passive crit or the ability to stick to Ganesha makes it very hard for him to play into those types of gods.
