Standard Damba Item Build
Build Section
Notes

These 2 items imo should be picked up first and second every time.

Chronos - Should be your first buy item 100% every single game. You want Chronos 2 ASAP. The 20% CD Reduction is very useful for all your abilities on damba.

Nimble - Is a very underrated item on damba. You want to build this item second or third and only go up to nimble 2 and spend your credits else where. The 20% mobility allows for quicker rotations and lets you move around the map to put yourself in a better position to L.o.S your teammates for heals.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From here on out is kind of just situational buys

Blast Shield / Haven - If you're taking a lot of damage, these 2 items will help you a lot. Haven for if they have a lot of hitscan. Ex: Barik /Lian / Viktor / Tyra. Blast Shield if they have a lot of AoE damage. Ex: Bomb King / Drogoz / Fernando / Ash.

Resil - Should be bought to at least level 2 for when the enemy team has 2-3 + cc abilites. Ex: Ash Ult ( The stun when she lands ) / Cassie's Disengage / Pip's Evil mojo / Ash Kinetic burst shot. Resil counters all of these and can be very valuable if the enemy team has a lot of CC abilities or ults

Wrecker - Is just a buy if you're don't need anything else and its also good to spam at shields on your down time. If your right click and gourd are on cool down you can spam at shields while you wait for your next heal CD.

Deft Hands - Is a good buy on damba because when you reload you send out a snake and if it hits and enemy it stuns them for 1 second. Being able to stun multiple targets with fast reloads is good and cause be very useful to keep stunning easy targets. Ex: of easy targets is Ruckus / Ash / Torvald / Makoa / BK / Grover

Kill to Heal - Is just a sustain card. Since healing gives you elim credits, kill to heal is very helpful to sustain yourself since you can heal 2 targets at a time with right click late game + gourd can heal someone else, and the damage from gourd can get you an elim.

Bulldozer - Is also a really good buy for damba if the enemy team has deployables. Ex: Barik Turrets / Ying Clones / Inara's warders field / Grohks totem. Getting rid of these can be very helpful for your teammates.

These next few items arn't really needed but could be okay in some situations

Illuminate - Doesn't really get a lot of value in the game anyways since there's only 3-4 stealth champions. The only real value this card gets is if skye is flanking you alot

Master Riding - Isn't a bad buy but i don't think its needed either. The only reason you would buy this item is if you want to keep up with the rest of your team when they've bought master riding

Life rip - Gets little to no value on damba. Kill to heal just get more value as a healer.

Veteran - Isn't a terrible buy either, but kill to heal just get more value. And it wouldn't be a very good thing to sit out of combat for to long. You'll lose healing and sustain in a team fight if you're afk healing all the time.

Rejuv - Does nothing for you. The only value you would get out of this, is if you had a second support. But even then its a super pointless buy because you shouldnt be taking that much damage that rejuv needs to come into play

Cauterize - Is never a bad buy. But as a small projectile LMB isnt really a consistent caut.
