It’s vital to overdrive Baron’s B, Jump Jets, first on weapon builds for the speed boost, built-in Reflex Block, and significant cooldown reduction. Use Porcupine Mortar to clear lane minions or prevent enemy heroes from escaping. Baron’s C, Ion Cannon, grants him bonus basic attack range per level. Put the third point in this ability to achieve maximum range possible.

Core Items

KTTG: SorrowbladeKTTG: Tension BowKTTG: Tyrant's Monocle

Start with Sorrowblade for the raw weapon damage and coordination with the bonus basic attack from Baron’s B. Then, build Tension Bow for burst and harass potential alongside its armor piercing mechanism. Tyrant’s Monocle is perfect to achieve critical attacks and higher damage during fights.

As Needed

KTTG: Tornado TriggerKTTG: Metal JacketKTTG: AegisKTTG: Halcyon Chargers

Tornado Trigger as a third or fourth item applies critical attacks more often, while allowing Baron to basic attack and cast Jump Jets frequently. Consider purchasing Metal Jacket when going up against weapon carries that can maneuver through protective allies. Aegis is a must-have item on most carries for the shield and Reflex Block capability, unless you’re facing a double weapon power team. Because Baron is best played at the mid-to-back fighting line, Halcyon Chargers provide him the energy he desperately needs to activate his abilities at full throttle while still offering a great escape.
