Example Build II

Notes Build this when YOU personally are getting railed. Or something like this. If your team is getting owned and you need to put on the backpack, get some damage.

I originally had Sovereignty after Gauntlet of Thebes but I replaced it with Lono's Mask so that I can have a talk with you.

Lono's Mask is very situational... you can build it early or late but if you are going a full tank build especially you will do NEGATIVE damage. You will also be unkillable. Like actually go play 2 conquest games with build 1 vs. build 2. I like them both but they serve 2 very different purposes.

THAT being said, I don't like building Lono's Mask unless I am crying and getting bullied WHILE my team is doing good. Because it makes you more tanky and able to get in there so that your backline can do work. If the entire team and I are getting ****ed, I am not building Lono's. Unless I'm trying to stack damage mitigated to prove a point or something.

Contagion: You are tank Neith and don't want to get Brawler's Beat Stick. You are more concerned about their physical damage vs. magical.

Notes Pridwen: I'LL BE THE FIRST TO SAY the passive doesn't really do **** on Neith... Like I admit it. I still like the item Idc if I get a shield while I'm sitting in fountain ulting across the map.

Spirit Robe: You can't afford Mantle of Discord and/or value the passive mitigations and CCR more than Mantle's passive.

Mantle of Discord: You need an all around defensive item and haven't capped CDR.

Relics

Notes What I normally get: Purification Beads or Bracer of Radiance into Blink Rune.

I LIKE Bracer. I have no idea how good it is but I really do like it... its fun and interesting and new. I also like how bracer into blink makes your relic slot golden and pretty. Anyways, If you get bracer make sure to place the first one at the red buff so that your adc will get to purple faster. After that I place them in lane during the laning phase, and then in mid lane after that. You can also place it at GF/FG to sentry ward and then give your team 10% increased power vs. those objectives and while fighting around those objectives.

Pros + Cons [Support Specific]


·̩̩̥͙**•̩̩͙✩•̩̩͙*˚PROS˚*•̩̩͙✩•̩̩͙*˚*·̩̩̥͙

Global ultimate, support from wherever you want. 54-second cooldown full CDR.
She has CC on all 4 of her abilities!
Double hunter in duo = good early pressure.
You can build her super tanky or more damage-oriented... Variety.
She is very fun and easy to play, and she just got a new skin.

·̩̩̥͙**•̩̩͙✩•̩̩͙*˚CONS˚*•̩̩͙✩•̩̩͙*˚*·̩̩̥͙

If you are not hitting her Spirit Arrow 90% of the time, you are gonna struggle.
- It is very easy to hit. All of her abilities are. I believe in you.
She is not as tanky as a traditional support without Lono's Mask (which is for cowards), the Nupport playstyle is something you need to get used to. I will talk more about this later.
If you fall behind early you are going to hate life. A lot.
She doesn't have any hard CC outside of her ultimate.
No CC immunity in her kits, Purification Beads is a necessity against some gods/comps.

Abilities

You should read Neith's abilities in detail either through Smite or here: https://smite.fandom.com/wiki/Neith

I am just going to be explaining Neith's abilities as they are. So this will be useful to you whether you are going Nupport, Nolo, Nungle, Nadc, or Nid. Neith is SO straightforward so just skip this part if you already understand her.

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.


Simplified Explanation

Neith fires a shot that passes through everything. Each enemy hit takes damage and is Rooted. If the Spirit Arrow hits a Broken Weave, the Weave detonates, dealing an additional 100% of the damage and applying the Root to all enemies in the area.

Damage: 90/155/220/285/350 (+90% of your Physical Power)

Root: 1.2/1.4/1.6/1.8/2s

Can deal up to 180/310/440/570/700 (+180% of your Physical Power) damage if hit by both the weave and arrow.

Cooldown: 15/14.5/14/13.5/13 seconds

8.8 Bonus Patch!!

8.8 BONUS UPDATE
https://www.smitegame.com/news/8-8-bonus-update-notes-live-september-7th/

No direct changes to Neith.

Indirect changes to Neith:

[NERF] Void Shield: Decreased Physical Protections from 60 to 45
What this means: It's a slightly worse item now but still able to be built.

[NERF] Winged Blade: Decreased Health from 250 to 200
What this means: Once, again. Slightly worse. It was already situational on supports and it remains that way.

Nupport Playstyle

Chapter 3: Nupport Playstyle is coming soon. I am too busy right now... So this is the end for now. Until like, later today or tomorrow.

Questions and Answers:

Q: Why Neith support?
A: She is fun in every role. I love Neith. Also, support is really boring right now. Remember, if you are trying and building like a support you can play any god you want and it's legal.

Q: Do you have success with the Nupport?
A: Of course.

Q: Is this a troll build?
A: No. Does it look like one. Go play Neith support for an hour, try different builds, and come back and tell me about how enlightened you are.

But actually, if I'm being direct with you. Whether you play Neith or Yemoja in your casual 11pm conquest queue will not matter. Probably don't play her in Ranked. I don't. Shes just something fun that you CAN play and do ok without boring yourself to death playing a zzz guardian

I have not proofread this guide. Don't look too closely.

This build is great. I went 5, 1, 4 with this build, and that was with two of my teammates leaving from the beginning of the game. We won every team fight but ultimately lost because of our lack of teammates the kills were 22/17 for the teams in our favor.

I think my feedback was quite positive for the level of off-meta this choice is.

Also, one game doesn't necessarily signify the effectiveness of a build. There are so many variables in any given match...skill from matchmaking, your team's and the enemies' god choices, overall level of the player's skill that tries this, etc.

The6thEspada | September 9, 2021 4:49pm
You are correct, I was mainly trying to mitigate the people who might think this will never work by showing an instance where the build worked well. I didn't want him to possibly delete the build.

It is very beta to downvote without commenting suggestions or feedback! Let me see you do a better guide over this.

Branmuffin17 (361) | September 6, 2021 9:24pm
Hey Mimikyute,

Beta being used in that format is new to me. I guess I don't get out much. That said, I will say that you shouldn't be surprised by downvotes without explanations. That's pretty typical, not only of this site but any other site where anonymous voting is allowed. There are different ways to take the downvotes, though I will say that your tone is more likely to invite further downvotes and negative feedback than to create positive discourse. Maybe that's what you want, or maybe you don't care, but I personally try to keep things positive when possible. In any case, I'll make it clear that I've not downvoted this. At the same time, I hesitate to upvote this despite the work put into it. I just would never recommend Neith as a support, especially since most of the people considering this are likely newer, and I'd like to steer them more on the "meta" path so they can learn as well as possible and have the most likely chance of success as opposed to getting discouraged.

Also...I don't know if that's a real challenge, but it tempts me, though I just don't like Neith nearly enough to take you up on that.

Now for some guide/build feedback:
  • You obviously put effort into this. I'm happy about that. I think you take time to explain a good amount of things, whether it's basic concept on the builds or how to use your abilities.

  • I do think you could provide a bit more explanation on builds / items...you list quite a variety of items you obviously think are viable, and they're quite diverse, so it would be good to know when you'd choose Sovereignty, or when it's really worth going for Talisman of Energy. Also, why would you not list tanky anti-heal options? Would you only ever consider Brawler's Beat Stick for that purpose?

  • I do just need to say this; obviously I don't think Neith is a very good supp. Like any other hunter, you can have fun with it. She is definitely better than some other hunters though.

  • I also agree...Supp has been boring lately. So might as well try this if you're in casuals and want to try something different.

Thank you for the feedback! I don't know what my goal with the initial comment was... I kind of just posted it because if you dislike something you should at least tell me why :| Even if its something as basic as "Neith no guardian therefore downvote"

I will take ur feedback into account :) Also I failed to consider tanky antiheal because I always just build brawlers but I can see how that would conflict with Tank Neith... so I will add it!
