Summary

Updated current build for Xbalanque* Currently level 10 with 1300 kills and 1900 assists 92 wins.

When I first started playing Smite, I had a drastically different build for him where I focused solely on Crit strike and attack speed. Now it is a little more balanced out with some power and attack speed and crit chance.

I start out with The Executioner instead of boots because I would only need 1000 more gold to finish it out instead of using all of my gold for the Ninja Tabi. When I first start I focus primarily on minion kills and attacking from afar while using the Rising Jaguar ability to escape if pressed. Depending on the enemy you can sneak some kills in with Rising Jaguar as well.

After the Executioner is upgraded, I buy the Ninja Tabi boots to give me a boost of attack and movement speed. (Note: Warrior Tabi can be purchased instead, since attack speed is maintained through other items.)

Next is a must for Xbalanque in Hastened Fatalis. This is the ultimate minion killer and definitely deals damage to fleeing gods. While you are hitting your target you continue to catch up them so if the fleeing god is not zig zagging (most do but occasionally dont) you will pick up some kills that way.

Next I pick up Hidden dagger/ short sword just to give my attacks a chance to crit strike. Before fully upgrading into Rage or Deathbringer (pending on how things are going) I pick up Asi first. This helps you maintain battles a little longer with the lifesteal and of course an increase of attack speed doesn't hurt.

* Instead of Asi, Qins sais is also used.

Once Asi is acquired its only a matter of time that you gain the extra 900 gold to upgrade your short sword into Rage. Once rage is upgraded, I grab another short sword/hidden dagger to increase my crit chance some more.

ALTERNATIVES

Witchblade- increases attack speed while reducing enemies attack speed and physical power. I sometimes grab this instead of Asi or my last item.

Transcendence- You could replace The Executioner with this so you can start building stacks early.

Bloodforge- has been used to replace Asi- Just a lot more expensive but helps you sustain.

Heartseeker- Have not used yet, but I think it would help with this build with the increase in attack speed and power.

Jotunns Wrath- This build lacks a lot of penetration, this would help with that problem and gives some CDR


Again, constructive comments are appreciated. This build has served me well but it does struggle against a tankier opponent, especially early game, but overall its rare that I don't go 15-7 k/d which is not bad by any means.
