    Poseidon has a hell of an ult. Ill give him that. It definitely has a huge impact on teamfights. Other than that he just seems super underwhelming.

    On a side note-Bit the bullet and bought the champ bundle. Neith is friggin amazing.

    Well Poseidon IS pretty dang squishy, even Hebo is slightly tougher. With that said, you don't have nearly as scary of a kit and Artemis will probably just bawk at your Whirlpool since she doesn't have an escape anyway. She has always been a terror as far as pure damage goes, she just lacks the substantial CC and dash/leaps of other ranged phys.

    I've read on the forum quite a bit now that the best way to build Poseidon is to build him like a Freya, I don't play Freya but I do know she makes use of Demonic Grip and maybe Fatalis (not sure if together is best or not) so you could try looking around at how decent Freya's build.

    I love Neith. I've always played Cupid and Ymir quite a bit and she has best of both worlds as far as I'm concerned.

    I totally agree with you. Trying to save up favor points just to get her.

    I agree. Neith is one of my favorite gods. Second only to Ao Kuang. She plays exactly the way that I like. Plus, her victory dance is amazing.

    I'm still thinking about this one. The favor points will just loose its purpose once I give in to the God Pack.

    You can buy skins with favor points. Also, you get refunded for any favor points you've spent on gods once you buy the pack. Which you'll need when you consider a new skin cost 11k favor (I think).

    No kidding. I almost couldn't contain myself the first time I saw it. I think I stayed in the post-game lobby for a solid 10 minutes.


    I wish I liked Vamana. His new skin is hilarious to me.

    You can only buy the cheapy recolors with favor. The higher quality skins are cash only.

    I thought they all were available for favor after a period of time?

    Nope, they all have different grades of quality that are attached to their gem price. 200 gems (I think) are the recolors and offered for 11k Favor, 400 gems is a different skin altogether and maybe different particle effects and the 600 gem ones are the epic ones where animations, voice acting, etc are completely new.

    Oh well. I find skins pretty useless so I never spend on them. I've been eying the newest Ao Kuang skin, though.

    I buy pretty much every favor skin for the Gods I play, I need to stop being broke so I can buy the Ultimate God Pack and some gem skins lol.

    Right now I'm saving for Neith's, but I kind of want to buy Poseidon too... Hmm.

    People in MOBAs really need to relax. You can use 6th grade superiority arguments to make people legitimately mad even if your team won. It's honestly quite amusing to watch. Which in turn makes me want to play this game more often.

    Also if anyone wants to join my tiny group Team Captain let me know and we'll get you an invite. Nothing beats replying to a bossy teammate with 'You're not team captain. I am!'

    '
    Haha yes.

    I do find Smite's community alot more bearable than LoL's though. 9/10 times when someone on the team is being a tool a simple "**** you" followed by "lets be friends" seems to get team morale pretty high and everyone starts being friendly.

    Haha agreed. You have to go out of your way to inspire rage in SMITE compared to feeling a sense of relief if you play a full game of League without having a rager. And when people do rage in SMITE the things they say are so ridiculous I can't help but laugh and start replying with the built in Emote voice.

    I love those voice commands. It's always hilarious when you have a "yes!" "No!" argument with someone and then randomly throw in an "Ok!" You can almost have full conversations with them.

    The voice commands have huge potential IMO, It would be amazing if there were different language settings so whatever you sent (while appearing in your language to you) would appear in their language on their screen.

    I agree that the new voice commands are great. I will just have to get used with the shortcut commands.

    Has anyone tried Aphrodite? Man not only her character design is sexay, but also here skills are full support! Haven't tried here yet though.

    I have 2~3 Arena matches with her under my belt, she's a lot of fun if you don't mind relying on another and not getting too many kills. She's hard to use, right now I'm having a lot of trouble with her Kiss ability since everyone's always jerking around missing and blowing it on air is frustrating, plus a lot of times you go for a link or stun and accidentally link up with someone else and not realize it until it's too late. Her ultimate feels a little too short early on, It's not so bad at max though, you just can't expect it to save you for long. Her heal is good, I'd say it's pretty balanced and probably a little difficult to deal with if she's paired with Hercules or some other God with sustain of their own.

    Honestly, I think her 1 is screwing with me so bad because it doesn't seem like I can lead it, it has to go right onto a highlighted target which also makes for some weird links that wouldn't normally seem like it would work lol.

    She probably fairs even better in Conquest, It's a bit difficult in Arena because you need to constantly make quick decisions on whom to link up with and heal, generally I latch onto good initiators like bruisers/tanks and temporarily link to the squishier Gods if they need heals or immunity.

    Just for anyone else that may get confused like I did, her 3 (the dove heal) doesn't need to hit anything to provide the heals.
