So i've been playing smite for a while now. I've read up on doom orb and it seems like its a really good item early game for mages(Probably used for solo lane and mid lanes im guessing) I also know that Boots are a must for the majority, if not all gods (I understand why)
I was just wondering, if im playing mid-lane as a mage would it be better to start building Doom Orb first or get my Boots.

Me personally, I start Vampiric Shroud and Lost Artifact, with a few pots depending on who I'm playing. Boots are the immediate next item, unless I feel safe, then I go double-stacking with Doom Orb and Book of Thoth or Warlock's Sash.

Really, play it against your foes. If the jungle spends a lot of time in mid or you die early, get boots before Doom Orb. Otherwise, Doom Orb is so unimaginably good if you can stay alive that your foes won't have time to worry about ganking.
I play SMITE. What else do you need to know?

it really depends on it if you have the gold when you back.

you will sell Doom Orb when you die later anyway cause stacking it late game isn't worth anymore.

I generally would not build doom orb at all because book of thoth is just a much better item, however if you choose any stacking item you are usually going to finish boots first because mobility is crucial to getting out of sticky situations. If you feel comfortable against your opponent and you think that they are less of a threat to you the option of filling out the stacking item first is a relatively smart choice.

Why is this happening so frequently lately? Shouldn't posts close after 6 months or so?

Nah, some posts stay relevant indefinitely (especially off topic ones) so they never get closed automatically. If someone necro's a really old post we might lock the thread to avoid it happening again though.

I was trying to get more people active on the forums so I went back to old topics and posted on them to get people talking about that topic again

Is it weird for Benard created Medicate's and my own signature doesn't have on for his own not sounding to be like a *** but with benard skills he could just make one for himself like nothing.
