Smite is for babies. When you grow up, you drink Paladins.
I'm squarely focused on BF5, Red Dead 2, Black Ops 4, and Rainbow Six. I miss my Smite bros though.
The problem is that I realize how much I love the MOBA genre, and SMITE literally has no competition on console. I'd love to see LoL try to make a console version, but that's clearly not going to happen anytime soon.
Hi I’m back on the smite train
Try merlin, he's op and lots of fun till his eventual nerf
Spear of mag can shred even a tank
Haven't played in 10 days, as I've been out of town. Excited to see what season 6 is all about, is Pele still OP after her recent nerf?
If y'all are trying to play, NomadHokie is my XB1 handle.
Shes still in the upper echelon
How often do y'all use Shogun's Kusari? It's my go to magic defense item on ability based warriors. I love the +20% attack speed the aura provides. Added boost that it helps the team.
Never, do you mean auto attack based warriors
Oops. Yep. I did. Genji's is better if you're mana hungry and ability based, but I love Shogun's on gods like Erlang and Osiris.
Probably the only two acceptable for Shogun's
Berserker for all others and glad shield for Arthur and Tyr
Alright I downloaded this, and I’m going to play. What do I do.
Can show you the ropes if you'd like
Took a few months off. Back on. Chadnk is player name PC.
This game is damn near impossible without help in the beginning. Definitely play with one of us, so you don't hate it immediately. I can play on a smurf so you won't get folks who have logged the same hours I have into the game.
Disclaimer: So this is going to be mayyybe the nerdiest post I've ever made on this board.
I've been messing with hunter builds the last 2 days. I've been wanting to incorporate Runeforge into my Cern build, while keeping it at winter to see what happens. (Note: Runeforge stats in pic is +40 power, the current power of the item is +55, so add +15 to both for both builds).
This is also basing off the attack speed to power ratio mentioned here: http://team-dignitas.net/articles/blogs/Article/9846/a-guide-to-attack-speed-and-building-on-hunters
(Cliffs: the idea is that you try to maintain a 100:1.0 ratio, so 150 basic attack damage and 1.5 attack speed)
Which of these 2 builds is better? (Note: this is assuming I've sold Ninja Tabi after buying the health pot and replacing it with Atlanta's Bow in both builds). In build 1, you lose power, but get the very effective passives from Qins and Exe. In build 2 you gain significant power, mana, +10% cooldowns, and the O-bow passive. Lifesteal and pen are the same in both, you also get to 2.53 attack speed gaining +3 power from silverbranch in both.
With a neckbeard and got my own space in Moms basement. Which building was led though?
Number 1 by a long shot
I'll edit when I'm done driving
1. Build 1 is better. In 2nd, trans + runeforged doesn't make sense imo since as a hunter you need to value speed & pen.
2. You should go boots then rush runeforged. That 15% will be more valuable early than late.
That's what I was thinking as well, though you still have +20 pen and Asi for lifesteal in both builds. You also have max attack speed in both. The cooldowns, mana, and extra power also sound nice. That said, exe is almost a requirement in all hunter builds with the protection shred. Qins would also be nice for melting high health gods.
I've also been struggling with the concept of health vs defense.... It's ideal to build both. A ton of defense with little additional health doesn't really help you much. In a standard game (3 phys and 2 magic), where players are building 1 to 2 pen items, when is it better to start focusing on health?
Build 1 has:
189 Phys defense...
168 Mag defense
Build 2 has:
Basically, the build is the same but one has Stone of Gaia and one has Spirit Robe.
Gaia is trash
Get thebes late game and build per your role
Solo or support as well?
That was a Ne Zha solo build I was screwing with. I kind of like Shield of Regrowth on him, though it feels more like a troll item versus a useful one.
Shield of Regrowth
To keep it simple: You have large diminishing returns on protections after about 200.
It is, I'm just having a hard time fitting it in if I want to surpass 200 defense on both. I can get there, and then there's one more spot and it's Runeforge or Shield of Regrowth. Feels like Runeforge is in a better overall place rn.
Rune is the right choice
Shield of regrowth fits more into jungle for him
Movement health and cdr
Right now I use all 3 robes....
Hide of the Urchin
Fineokay's standard warrior build tries to max mitigations, his is
Void Shield (or Runic if going against magic)
Welp, guess I'm going to go try some of this shit out.
I'll be on in a bit if you're up
May just play motd and clash though
Don't feel like trying too hard
New serpent is pretty damn cool.
He's pretty cool... Wonder how he's going to shape up once folks figure out how to play him.
Watching this video
Why would he build Genji's over Shogun's here? He says in the video he needed more attack speed, and everyone knows the higher the attack speed the higher the damage cap. I get it that the CCR is kind of unnecessary, and he sacrifices 10 defense and 150 health, but to me that seems worth it for the added 20% attack speed he'd get.
Best way to use Bellona's shield bash? I always have used it to slow and combo with another ability. That was before I realized I can just stock blocks, if I stay in that stance for a bit. I literally have a star on her too.
Btw, having a monster game with Bellona and Erlang are 2 of my favorite experiences in this game. I got Bellona her star by just getting pocket healed by Aphro in arena, and that shit was so fun.
I played a game the other day as Scylla. I don't know what's changed in the 2 years or so since I lasted played, but the server/game seemed very laggy. Couldn't hit any of my abilities, and I used to wreck with her. Wasn't sure if there was a delayed cast time on her stuff or if the server ping was just like 200+. I think you'd enjoy League of Legends Gin Buckets . Once you get accustomed to moving your character around with point and clicking rather than WASD, it's so nice. Has a game mode called "ARAM" which is comparable to Arena
I keep meaning to try it, but my laptop just isn't great for gaming I don't think.
I haven't noticed a difference fwiw, maybe it's the cross platform they enabled.
SK Gaming is fun as hell to watch
Very excited for the finals tomorrow
SamForSoccer has carried the shit out of them, and I think he's the best jungler I've watched. Definitely cheering them on, and will be in attendance tomorrow.
Fuck Hirez and fuck Rival
SK is wiping Rival left and right in G1
Hope they scorch everything after the start to the day
That was amazing. How they won game 3 is beyond me. I don't know if they give these, but SamForSoccer deserves MVP. PolarBearMike and fineokay also looked the best in class for their respective roles.
Stayed awake late tonight trying to get a good game in before bed. This is simple assault... First game: teammate never loads in. Second game: Enemy team has all physical, but our heaviest god (Achilles) builds no defense, goes 0-7 and then DCs. Third game: We have a Zeus and He Bo who COMBINE for about 11k damage, and play like guardians feeding (IFwiw, I did 14k in same game). Fourth game: I go 19-5 with 45k damage (2nd most in the game was like 28, and 2nd most on my team was like 14k). Pretty frustrating.
Hey full support M&K on consoles now
