    I really like how wards are so cheap in this game tho. There's literally no downside to buying them at all times~



    Also, idk how I got all those gems. I bought the Ultimate God Pack right before SMITE was released tho...
    That team comp is so horrible... Chaac didn't even go tank either.

    Would suggest tiermonster as the go to for info on builds.

    Also I only really play arena too since i'm sick of the farm and fight type of thing in mobas. The only thing important in arena is teamfight potential or fast mobility characters that can weave in and out of combat very well. That is why Mercury and Bastet are great picks in arena since they can kill with relative ease and still escape harm.

    Poseidon and Zeus are actually what i prefer people to be using in arena though. The cripple on poseidon's whirlpool is just OP and zeus can kill a whole team if comboed (Odin ult or Ares Ult). Today I even had a combo game with an arachne who put her spiders near me when I was a bastet. Whenever she pulled I summoned my cats. I think we had like 8 spider and 3 cats in total on one person or something. The guy couldn't even move from all the slows. Hilarious stuff

    Your goal with Nu Wa is to become a high mobility magic auto attack assassin that keeps close to her target while locking them down for repeated polynomicon procs. Then just pick them apart with the fire gem's attack damage bonus. In team fights wait till the opponent commits to an attack or retreat with their jump skills, then throw your ultimate followed by everything else. If you get lucky you'll stun 2+ people with her fire attack and then force them into dying as a group from splash damage in your prison, or suffering the damage of retreating from said prison and becoming fodder for your front line chasers.

    She is quite a lot stronger now though. Or should I say her improved animation lets her hit much more now. Much faster 1, her 2 is now a left to right swipe, which means you can swipe a huge area if you can time a turn correctly, her 3 is almost two to three times as fast now. It's just so much easier to land your whole skillset on multiple enemies now.

    Shes more accessible now for sure but a good bastet was going to 100-0 you before the rework anyway.

    I dont feel that helping more casual players do decent with her makes her OP.

    In the past it was a slow and painful 100-0 though. With that passive in place and the more assured hits, she can do it to squishies mid game with enough speed to activate her jump return and get out of the enemy's backline unscathed.

    Nemesis seriously needs to get nerfed. Retribution is ridiculous, heal, reflect and all the while she is free to do what she wants!

    Bastet is absolutely fine imo. Her whip radius was bugged, it will be fixed next patch.

    New god reveal is out. (Kumbakarna) Patch will come Monday maybe? donno.

    She is getting nerfed next week, slightly. Her Retribution is going to be modified eventually too.

    You can rent them for 1 match for 100 favor to test them out before buying. Play every game mode for their dailies gives you quite a lot of favor too.

    Yea I know what gods I want now but the favor grind is painful. Just wondering if anyone had some tips besides the obvious stuff. It's pretty fun though. How long does it take to get to level 30?

    Not sure if this is obvious or not but some of the Gods should be cheaper than the rest, I believe they're Cupid, Hades and Ao Kuang but I'm not 100% positive. Keeping Goodwill 100% is probably obvious but worth mentioning. (If the Godpacks still around it's definitely worth it)

    Really depends on how much you play, it probably only took me a month or two. I got 3 accounts to 30 (plus varying additional playtime on each one after hitting cap) in less than a year. That was probably with about 4 hours a day give or take breaks/binges.

    Hard CC negates nemesis shield though and its easy to just not attack her if she pops it and Nem is squishy as heck. Her ult though needs a longer cooldown along with Bastets. Also their escapes need to be limited to one dash and one jump because that amount of initiation is ridiculous.

    Yeah she is squishy as heck eventhough she is a warrior because building squishy is more rewarding than building tanky. The damage reflect is a proportion of the damage she would have taken so tanky nemesis would reflect less.

    Yeah it is easy enough to stop attacking but you have to consider attacks that are already in the air before she pops her shield. Late game getting a reflected projectile really hurts! On top of that she is free to attack you as she pleases while you can't attack her for the duration of the shield. If they made the shield like aegis where you can't move or attack for the duration it would have been much more balanced.

    I've seen an Ao Kuang get taken down from 100% hp to 5% hp just from a reflected spirit tempest.

    Today I played a game on He bo after not playing him for a while. I think I broke my back trying to carry this team. Don't you just love it when an ADC can't land a single auto and the whole team stands in zeus ult for ages...

    Also, it's a demonstration of the power of he bo if he gets first blood.

    im a newbie at Smite but there are some laner-style gods i have trouble countering: Ao Kuang, Zeus, and I think Poseidon are really hard for me to out-lane using someone like Isis.

    If Im using an Isis or Aphrodite, I dont think I cant hope to beat Ao Kuang or Zeus if I face them in a lane. Maybe I should buy some instant/active item. Best I can hope for is to slow the speed at which they start taking down towers, and wait for help.

    sorry if im not using the right terminology. I still havent learned all the Smite terms.

    Ao Kuang is one of the easiest gods to fight against after you gain some experience. He is really good at killing noobs. To counter him just run out of tornado. He will rarely get you exactly in the center of the tornado, and by rarely I mean super-rare once in a blue moon. If you are not in center you just run out of it fast, always run towards to closest border from you. If he does get you in the center you can either blow your dash or movement ability to get out fast or just take the DoT, the AoE stays on the ground for a short period before it applies the DoT.

    As for his slowing projectile it is fairly easy to juke. If you are having a great deal of trouble with the slow you can buy Winged Wand(Item) which passively removes the slow. Worst case scenario you can use your beads to cleanse the slow in a really tight spot. Btw, I recommend always recommend getting beads because it saves your life like no other active! Oftentimes a CC might mean guaranteed death especially if you are squishy. It takes some getting used to, but eventually you will be able to beads on reaction very fast. The other day I used beads on an Arachne's pull mid pull! It was hilarious! Also more importantly it denied a free kill.

    His ulti is easy to juke at mid or max range. At close range you can juke it if you anticipate it before hand. Take advantage of the game's amazing stereoscopic sound. Turn off the game's music, keep SFX volume high and wear headphones. Every skill in the game has a unique sound effect and Ao Kuang and Ra's ultis are no different. When they cast it you can tell that they are casting it and you can know exactly where they are are casting it from. In the case of Ao Kuang's ulti, not only does it have a ground indicator but you can tell the path of the projectile if you pay close attention to the sound it makes. The sound source actually follows the path of the dragon in his ulti so you can tell which direction it is moving in.

    To get better at this game you should increase your mouse sensitivity gradually. Go to Control Panel>Hardware and Sound>Mouse>Pointer Options. At first you will think high sensitivity is hard to control but you gradually get used to it. I remember about a year ago I used to think max sensitivity was crazy as a little tap on the mouse would send the pointer flying. But now I always use max sensitivity because I've gotten used to it.

    I highly recommend gradually increasing your sensitivity to any new gamer not just smite players because it greatly improves your gameplay across all games. Even out of game it saves you precious milliseconds per mouse action which adds up over time.

    In smite you should always be juking with camera turns not the A and D keys. The only time it is okay to use A and D to juke are if you are an ADC and you are auto attacking.

    thanks for the pointers!

    can you help me understand how to know which god is playing the "ADC" role? (is that Attack Defend.. Control? i cant recall what it stands for again)

    yea smite has some amazing stereo sound. I will try those with Ao Kuang! ( i already have my mouse on max speed+accel). Playing Aphrodite i think i have to really use the Kiss ability to attack, but i usually miss because you have to lead your target quite well.

    here are the roles that you need to know

    ADC = Carry - they are labeled as hunters - they are 99% on the lane with support
    Support = they are labeled as gaurdians - 99% on the long lane with the carry -
    Jungler = 99% of them have the item Bumbas Mask so you should know by the item if you arent sure about the heroes
    Solo = always on the shortest lane -
    Mid = self explanatory

    that way people won't rage at you for going to the solos lane instead of the carrys

    Don't really need to actually unless it's a huge misplay by an opponent that's too hard to give up. A well timed kiss to your teammates and ult is more important than blowing your kiss and waiting for the cooldown while someone in your team dies. Normally I only kiss opponents when we have the upper hand or an almost dead opponent is running away. If they don't buy perstilence/divine ruin/ brawlers beat stick against an aphro, they'll just die from the sustain aphro can give to her team.

    IMO mouse acceleration or smart move or whatever you want to call it is bad to have as it leads to unpredictable mouse movements. Basically what it does is that it makes it such that when you move the mouse the pointer starts slow but as you move it more the pointer gets faster and faster. I guess you might get used to it, but with very skill shot dependent gods like ADC's it will be tough to control your aim.

    With projectile skillshots like kisses it just requires practice, you get better and better at aiming them over time. Sometimes it can get really costly to miss those skill shots. If you miss Anhur's Impale on a Loki for instance it might mean the death of yourself or an ally. Ah Muzen Cab's ulti goes on full cooldown if you miss it and goes on a short cooldown if you hit it and grab the stinger afterwards.

    ADC is the MOBA lingo for physical damage ranged characters. In this game they are also called Hunters. If you want to know the roles for each god go to the Gods tab in the smite client and click the filter dropdown menu.

    I wish the client recorded replays for casual games. I want some kind of trophy for some of the amazing plays I've made.

    Few days ago I used beads to get out of an arachne pull IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PULL! It pulled me halfway.

    Today I saw a Nu wa circle go behind a wall and I used He bo's water spout to get her while she was behind the wall! (And invisible)
