The Zapman Special

Notes As stated in this title, this build was created by the one and only Zapman. It works well even though Berserker's Shield is REALLY expensive now.

Keep in mind Zapman doesn't use this build anymore, he uses the 2nd one that rushes Ichaival

The PandaCat Special

Notes The build pro player! Pandacat has been running on all ADCs lately. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C0Dse2hySaw&ab_channel=PandaCat

He does a very good job explaining his reasoning for the ranking on each item, and at the end, he says this is the build he goes.

His reasoning: While having Ichaival (and especially pairing it with Berserker's Shield) will make you unboxable in lane, you will be doing much less in team fights vs. someone that is going this build.

Valid Starters

Notes Death's Toll gives decent sustain early, and Death's Embrace is just a better version. You can't sustain off of towers/phoenixes anymore which sucks :\

Leather Cowl into Hunter's Cowl is really good for obvious reasons. If you're going a Transendence build this is the best starter for the early attack speed and sustain.

Gilded Arrow is good if you're going an AA build. You get a lot of bonus gold + if the enemy ADC doesn't have it you should be ahead of them in gold which means your items are online faster which means you are inherently gaining a lead.

Pros & Cons


PROS
Good boxing potential + sustain with her Unravel
Global ultimate
2s root on Spirit Arrow late-game + decent CC early game.
Spirit Arrow onto a Broken Weave hurts like hell, especially in ability builds.
Very easy + fun god to learn.
Can be built ability-based or AA, played in the mid lane or ADC role.

CONS
Her Backflip is very easy to follow and punish.
Enemies know when she is ulting + it can be bodyblocked.
She is very easy to gank.

Skill Information

A Broken Weave appears at the last location that each enemy god dies. The Broken Weaves give her abilities secondary effects when used on the Broken Weaves. These weaves last for 1 minute.

Updates + Conclusion

4.01.19 - minor changes to builds and information

4.03.19 - updated builds for the patcherino

matchups, skill priority, neith in conquest, etc. lots of new things to learn. writing is a little rough rn, the guides going thru an ugly phase

4.13.19 - this is so time-consuming help

3.22.21 - Redoing this entirely because I am bored!

I made this guide in 2019 because I was bored + I am updating it in 2021 because I am still bored. Neith was my first diamond character and all I played for the first 6 months that I played Smite. I have 6000 worshippers on the girl and I treasure her dearly even though I don't play her nearly as much as I used to.

Also! I have a LOT of notes in the builds. Its pretty easy to look over that little "notes" tab but I didn't feel like I needed an entire chapter for something that there's a more efficient feature for.

I also have 2 different build categories: AA builds + Ability-based builds.

I don't like to play neith adc (late leveling at start cause of supp) but i like to play power neith in mid,solo and even as jungler(with blink).
Build in such order
Starter only for jungler, otherways 2 of each pots for middler, or 2 green pots for solo.
Transcendence (that just must have for neith)
Warrior Tabi (we dont need pew-pew auto we need to caboom hard with skills)
Soul Eater (that's your health sustain and CD reduction)
Jotunn's Wrath (pen and cap CD reduction early)
Heartseeker (+pen now you combos just kill anyone but tanks)
Brawler's Beat Stick (+pen and heal reduction allways useful)
Elixir of Speed
The Crusher (+pen, attack speed, and some dmg bonus)

Now you have pen and dmg cap (with red pot or buff) and you health recovery with soul eater is amasing

Kriega1 (126) | March 10, 2020 4:18am
That build isn't that great. Has 40% cdr when power pot now gives 10% cdr, and has Soul Eater which isn't even that good on hunters (idk, just whenever I buit it on ability hunters it always felt weak to me, i'd rather have asi or bloodforge), and has no percentage pen.

So drop either soul eater or jotunns from that build and pick up titans bane.

Also building Ninja Tabi is fine, it gives mana to take advantage of trans passive as well.

Vini_sds (13) | March 10, 2020 4:21am
I honestly think Soul Eater is a underrated item for ability-based hunters and assassins.

You pretty much describe the first ability build, only a slightly less optimal build path If you aks me.

Branmuffin17 (361) | April 16, 2019 12:18pm
As an FYI, you mention the possibility of getting Ichaival...but it's not anywhere in your situational items at the top. It should be there.

Also, your tips should include the more specific tip (unless I missed it) about using a broken weave with Spirit Arrow. Specifically, for stronger clear, especially against the higher health melee minions, you don't shoot the spirit arrow until the melee ones have passed the weave. Then you shoot through them for the initial damage, THEN it hits the weave and you get additional damage on both the melee AND the ranged. That's where you get the more efficient clear.

Perfectium | April 16, 2019 2:19pm
yea i mentioned it for clearing waves but I didn't really go into details oops ! ill fix that & add ichaival to situationals ty ty
1
Branmuffin17 (361) | April 16, 2019 12:30pm
Also, at this point, I think Odysseus' Bow is outshone depending on build. In the example you have, it works and is pretty meta, but I think Ichaival might be the better option there. Much higher power potential (works great with her ability scaling), counters enemy ADCs/assassins, and just a bit less AS. Also, when you build into Qin's Sais, the power difference between Warrior and Ninja isn't all that huge that you can't consider Ninja's for better basic attack DPS. Of course, you'll replace Tabi late anyway, but that's something to consider.

Kriega1 (126) | March 2, 2019 12:00pm
In the runeforged build I would get trans before runeforged because you need to stack it.
1
Gulfwulf (81) | February 27, 2019 7:38pm
Qin's Sais pairs really well with The Executioner (attack speed and protection reduction) and O-bow (attack speed). I wouldn't build Qin's without exe, personally.
1
Kriega1 (126) | March 2, 2019 12:00pm
You can build qins without executioner on neith if you pick up o-bow:

Trans, warrior, crusher, titans, qins, o-bow.
1
Perfectium | February 27, 2019 9:51pm
yeah i thought so too, but I wasnt really sure what to replace it with so I left it alone. maybe heartseeker??
1
Kriega1 (126) | February 27, 2019 10:09pm
trans, warrior, crusher, titans, qins, odysseus' bow. You don't need executioner. But you can build it I guess.
1
Kriega1 (126) | February 27, 2019 8:09pm
I mean you can get away with titans and qins without exe on Neith but then you have to build O-bow because your attack speed will be so low.

xmysterionz (64) | February 27, 2019 6:07pm
Seems very decent ability based builds +1

However you will have to update your skill leveling order 'cause different from lol, in smite is not possible get the ultimate at level 5 (max) until level 20

Perfectium | February 27, 2019 6:37pm
thank u! i forgot to redo the skill leveling since it was first published lol

xmysterionz (64) | February 27, 2019 6:55pm
No problem. But, it still impossible. The levels that the ulti is available to upgrade are: 5,9,13,17,20.

No heartseeker? Malice in season 6???
1
Perfectium | February 18, 2019 4:23pm
I like it for the passive & crit option. heartseeker is good but idk what i would replace with it
1
Kriega1 (126) | February 18, 2019 9:12pm
In build 2 swap malice for heartseeker. Deathbringer can be swapped for bloodforge.

Though an alternative build with it:

Trans, Warrior, Jotunns, beatstick (or crusher), heartseeker, titans bane (or bloodforge).

Also for your "attack speed" build I would sell jotunns lategame for odysseus' bow to get more benefit from qins. Or instead what you could do is go: trans, warrior, crusher, titan's bane, qins, odysseus's bow, sell boots lategame for either executioner, jotunns or bloodforge.

Hey, just a quick question. What start would you recommend for Neith? I've tried Charged Morningstar + pots, however I was wondering if you recommend anything else.
1
Perfectium | February 18, 2019 4:20pm
Hunters Blessing & tier 1 trans + pots, or the same thing except starting boots first is what I usually do.
1
Kriega1 (126) | February 18, 2019 9:17pm
Hunter's blessing if you're adc otherwise you always go mage's blessing in mid lane for the faster clear.
1
Kriega1 (126) | February 18, 2019 10:04am
Either that start or mage's blessing and tier 1 transcendence + pots.
1
Kriega1 (126) | April 28, 2018 2:22am
I would get Bloodforge instead of Asi. I'd also get Titan's Bane instead of Qin's Sais. And lategame you could sell The Crusher for Odysseus' Bow. Brawler's Beatstick can also be a decent alternative to Jotunn's Wrath. Since this is a an ADC build and not a mid build I guess it's fine to build a little bit of attack speed, but i'd rather just build her ability based: Warrior Tabi (can sell for ninja tabi lategame), Transcendence, Crusher, Jotunns/brawlers, Titan's Bane, bloodforge, sell crusher for oddyseus' bow.

The only defense items I would consider (in certain situations) are: Mantle of Discord, Magi's Cloak, Winged Blade or a physical/magical defense item against a 4 physical/magical enemy composition in conquest.
1
boogiebass (46) | April 28, 2018 9:17am
I disagree with you favoring titans bane over qins and o.bow over crusher.

Bloodforge is debatable. See what bran wrote down below.
1
boogiebass (46) | April 23, 2018 9:35pm
Neith is an ability based adc (attack damage carry). Your build provides low penetration and power, due to you building double defense. I dont agree with your full build, but the dmaage options you posted are good. Your skill order is all over the place.
1
Perfectium | April 26, 2018 12:22am
thanks! i edited the skill sequence to hopefully make more sense and i replaced breastplace of valor with crusher for the main build (i use 2 defense items usually bc neith is easy to kill imo, but i can see why another damage item would help more) hopefully i improved the guide a little but if anything is still weird any advice is appreciated

boogiebass (46) | April 26, 2018 6:19pm
Hi Perfect, after you are finished with your edits, please press "Save" and "Publish" for the guide to be visible to others.

Also, as Tlaloc pointed out, a hunter should only build defense in extreme cases.
In my opinion, you can list defense under optional items, but I wouldn't include it in the example build.

Remember, an ADC needs 3 things:
1) Power. I'm not talking about Transcendence (It's a good item on Neith, but it's not the core damage item I'm talking about). Either build critical hit items, or Qin's Sais somewhere in your build (I think Qin's Sais benefits her more since she's ability based). These are the high damage items a hunter will use to dispose of their enemies.
2) Penetration - include Titan's Bane as an option since Neith is aiblity based.
3) Lifesteal - you don't have this anywhere in your build.
Asi might be a good choice for neith due to the +15 flat penetration.

At the end of the day, it is your guide, so do whatever you want with our advice.
