Ultimate Builds for the Sneakiest Scorpion
January 19, 2017
Hello newbie Serqet players! This is an ultimate build guide for her, these builds have been tested extensively and proven effective. I have been playing her for 6 months now and have decent knowledge on builds given a certain situation and I decided to share what I've learned because a lot of people are confused about building her. This guide will utilize different builds to counter the enemy team efficiently, also offer you general idea of how to build to her for matches where these builds may not apply. I will update this guide frequently when I come across new builds for her, so check back frequently!!. This is my first SMITEfire guide so go easy on me :)
Cooldown Reduction (CDR), penetration (Pen), and critical strike chance (CSC) are essential for a good build, a quick kill, a clean escape.
Build CDR ASAP, build tier 2 Warrior's Tabi
and tier 1 Breastplate of Valor
for most game modes except conquest. Tier 1 Jotuun's Wrath is another viable option depending if your going against tankier gods, but from my experience, damage is NOT essential early game, since she can take down a percentage of health with her passive
. If you're going against mages omit breastplate and replace it with Genji's Guard
or Bulwark of Hope
, and maintain a mana buff whenever. Extra Pen is helpful for making your crits more potent, so try to maintain a balance of CSC and Pen. Depending on the enemy team composition build Brawlers Beat Stick
against healers and Titan's Bane
against everyone else.
CSC is essential for her which is why it's built 4th. Mainly build Malice
for CSC since it gives DoT which will go hand in hand for your ult. Going against an enemy with moderate defense, opt for Deathbringer
first, since the DoT from Malice would be irrelevant.
The movement speed build is a bit trolly, (I've solely used it for Arena and do not recommend it for any other game mode,), making her near impossible to catch with the slow immune from Winged Blade and ritual dagger for Sanctuary and/or Sprint duration increase. You'll experience a lot of aggression, causing foes to throw away their abilities to catch you. I only recommend this build if you have a lot of experience playing her. The Best of Both Worlds as the name implies, combines the best items original build and the movement speed build. Its another great starter build, if you're having trouble with escaping and juking effectively, the extra movement speed extra will help. You can omit breastplate for any pen item, preferably Jotuun's Wrath
I don't recommend playing her for duel, but if you know how to counter most gods and can wave clear minimizing damage from waves, you'll do fine. Thanks to the buff for Odysseus's bow
, wave and camp clearing has become cheaper and qucker.
Bluestone Pendant is still a viable option, however you'd want to conserve mana.
Start off with Charged Bow, some pots or opt for tier 1 boots, and Wrath.
Head for the Damage Buff ASAP so your wave clear is more efficient. Once you get ult try to maintain the blue buff until you reach max CDR. Next item is Jotuun's for the Pen and CDR. Go into CSC item next, preferably Malice, but if your opponent builds defense immediately, go into a Pen item (Titan's Bane or Brawler's Beat Stick).
Defense should be built fifth you have a few options depending on their class, and god Remember that you should aim towards 2 CDR items, but if you have to go into an item with no CDR, play a smidge more cautiously. For mages go into Bulwark if you're a little behind in the match, Genji's if you're ahead because of the extra CDR passive. For physical enemies, generally go Breastplate of Valor for CDR, decent defense and mana. Hide of the Nemean Lion
for auto-attack assassins and hunters like Kali and Bakasura, which I hope you've banned btw. Last item can be extra defense, I strongly condemn this since you need to burst down your foe immediately, however you can go Winged Blade if going against someone with strong slows; Poseidon, Kukulkan, Freya etc; or go Witchblade
for auto-attack assassins and hunters, obviously Deathbringer or another Pen item. ALSO don't forget to ward around your base to prevent backdooring from hunters, I recommend you ban Skadi Kaldr allows her to tank your structures and backdoor the Titan with ease.
