Introduction

Hi I've been playing Sobek since the game first came out he's my best god and my main this is my first and last guide on smite fire but since sobek holds a special place in my heart so I'm gonna go ahead and do a small guide but please feel free to check out my other diamond gods builds because I will be posting them shortly after this guide. Ill probably be going back and fixing mistakes and I will also be updating the guides as smite changes, but anyway time to get to the god of who in my opinion is the best guardian in the game. FYI My purchase order may seem confusing but I have it set up exactly the way it is set up in my god builder with my main builds at the bottom. Feel free to send me a friend request on smite I play almost everyday my username is SobekoftheNile.

Pros / Cons

Pros

    High Sustain
    Good at isolating enemy gods
    High DMG compared to other guardians
    Good at disrupting the enemy while a teammate is at low health
    Has one of the Most Powerful ultimate's in the game (950 lvl 20)

Cons
    Long cool downs
    Mana Hungry Early Game
    Lowest base health out of any tank so far (4.5 update)
    Charge Prey can be hard to hit and is a double edge sword
    Ultimate takes time to charge which in some cases can get you killed

Skills

Passive - Blessing of the Nile

    Anytime sobek hits an enemy it grants him 7 protections for 3 sec stacking up to 3 times - this is good early game because it makes up for sobek having the lowest health pool of all guardians in the game so it helps to have some extra armor


Charge Prey
    Charge prey is used to pick key enemy's out of a team fight to finish them off the bat its one of the best and most unique moves in the game but is not the easiest to hit because if you miss now your in the middle of the whole enemy team and that could get you killed. Can also be used to save a friendly god if they are being chassed by and enemy while having low health. Tip: this ability can be used in a combo with awilix to pull the enemy back even further away from his team or with another god with a root, stun, silence to keep them from escaping.

Tail Whip
    Basic ability you spin in a circle and knock enemy's back pretty simple not much to say on this ability


Sickening Strike
    Its a cone attack that does DMG and heals you up to 3 enemy's hit as well as reducing any enemy gods healing by 50% for 4 sec. I level this ability first even though it is not as strong as tail whip because of the healing factor as well as its range being farther then tail whip. the healing factor will keep you in the lane much longer in conquest you wont have to be in there face as much and you heal and that early game heal is a lot at low level. For the healing reduction is great because it decrease the sustain of enemy gods and means you don't have to buy anti healing items from the beginning you can wait a couple items to grab them because this ability has a greater healing reduction then any item you can get anyway.
Lurking in the Waters
    So when activated you purify and gain 30% protections and are immune from CC and slows for the duration as well as recharge your mana and any enemies caught in the area are slowed after 4 sec then it activates and you do a ton of DMG. Now the mana recharge is great so be smart in early game and use it when you run out of mana so you can regen it and stay n lane longer. You can also activate this ability early but you will not do as much DMG.

Items

Starter Items

Watchers gift is my main starter item I use in all game modes when starting unless I'm playing in the solo lane in conquest or in joust when the enemy team has 2 physical gods and one magical then I will switch it out for mark of the vanguard.
Shoes of Focus are the shoes I use in my main build because of the 10% cool downs and the extra mana since sobek is mana hungry it makes it useful early game, always build your shoes first unless your playing joust then you build void stone first.
Shield of Regrowth the reason this is in the starter section is because it is used in almost all of my builds and is an important item late game with the speed boost you get from your 3 and the extra health since sobek has a low health pool as well as the cool downs since sobek has long cool down.

Core
Void Stone when playing in conquest this is your next item after your boots it helps maximize sobeks attacks making him a threat early game and protects you from the other guardian since guardians deal a lot of DMG early game. now when playing joust I buy my starter item then I immediately buy the first tier of void stone why because it helps protect you from the mage and guardians in joust since there are two of them and give you and your mage a higher DMG output early game, even if the enemy team has two physicals at the start of joust ill just get mark of the vanguard instead of watchers gift to counter that then start on void stone you still want that high DMG output to scare the enemy into not attacking.
Mystic Mail this is always my 3rd item by this time in the game hunters are starting to get some power so you need protections well I use this because it still maximizes my DMG and gives me a current stream of tick DMG on the enemy since sobek's abilities are all close it makes this item effective plus with void stone it makes it even more powerful as well as giving you extra health (sometimes ill replace this item for breastplate of valor if I ever need extra physical protections but it will lower your health if you do substitute this item make sure you substitute your shoes of focus for shoes of the magi as well for extra pen).
Mantle of Discord is my big tanky increase mid game to make sure your fending off a lot of DMG plus it has 10% cool downs to counter sobeks long cool downs as well as the CC immunity it gives out when low health sobek is hard to kill if he is running with his dash and purifying ultimate as well as the movement speed from shield of regrowth.
Hide of the Urchine a lot of people ask why I build this last well for one if your build it early on it can come back to haunt you if your not getting kills and assists early on so then you just bought this 30 protection item that is useless now cause you cant get stacks. if your build it at the end of your build then even after your full build at level 20 your still getting stronger as the game progresses with the stacks you gain late game which are a ton easier to get in the team fights.

Damage
Chrono's Pendent self explanatory sobek has long cool downs so you get the pendent moving on
Obsidian Shard this is your main pen item stacked with void stone in the solo lane it definitely puts a hurting on squishy characters and tanks as well.
Rod of Tahuti again self explanatory if your looking for more DMG put this on the end of your solo lane DMG build.
Divine Ruin this item isn't necessary but when stacked with pestilence plus sobeks 3rd ability it counters any healer with the rod of Asclepius it will make them absolutely useless.


Defence
Winged Blade great item to counter slows I personally don't use it in my builds except my tanky solo lane but can be a great substitute for shield of regrowth if that's what you prefer.
Spirit Robe has CC reductions cooldowns and protections its a great overall items as well as having DMG mitigation when hit with hard CC I don't use it in my other builds because it lacks protections but it works perfect in the solo tanky build I use stacking with winged blade on the CC reduction and shield of regrowth it makes sobek really fast and hard to keep still.
Breastplate of Valor easy to say its an awesome item mana to counter sobek being mana hungry high cool downs and high physical protections over all a solid item in most of my builds (if I ever need extra physical protections I will replace mystic mail with breastplate of valor but it does lower your max health if you do substitute mystic mail for this item make sure you substitute your shoes of focus for shoes of the magi as well for extra pen).
Pestilence simple it counters healers and high magical protections with health enough said.


Relics
Mediation great first relic it makes your sustain in lane much higher early game
Purification Beads if going against a team with a ton of roots or stuns get this instead of sanctuary sobek ultimate is already a purify so this definitely helps you counter a team that has stuns and roots.
Aegis Amulet (sanctuary) easy 2nd items for most games gives you 2 sec of DMG immunity.
Teleporting Glyph used in the solo lane to get you back in the lane faster.
Sunder used to help you late game in killing an enemy after you flip them.
