Smite God: Anubis

Item Purchase Order

First Item (Pick one)
?Replace Shoes of the Magi with Shoes of Focus late game.
I don't prefer Specialist's Blessing, but some do. You make the call.

You can rush Bancroft's Talon first if you like a more aggressive playstyle and want to take advantage of Sorrow ASAP.

If you want to build stacks ASAP, rush Warlock's Staff first.

Build Item Shoes of the Magi
Build Item Bancroft's Talon
Build Item Warlock's Staff

?Get Bancroft's Talon before Typhon's Fang.

Typhon's Fang allows you to overcap on your lifesteal while giving a large power spike. The power spike is larger if you are hurt and Bancroft's Talon's passive activates. This one is ALMOST core. You can consider something else if enemy anti healing is very relevant.

Build Item Bancroft's Talon Build Item Typhon's Fang

?Great on him due to his ticking damage. This item, by itself, will give you all the penetration you need for your kill combo.

Build Item Spear of the Magus

Accessory Items (Pick one in most cases)
?The Mantle of Discord is a situational pick up.

Gem of Isolation works great with his abilities as well. The added health is a plus.

Spear of Desolation is great to help you achieve max CDR, but combined with Spear of the Magus, you will likely overcap penetration against squishy targets.

Build Item Gem of Isolation Build Item Divine Ruin Build Item Mantle of Discord Build Item Shaman's Ring Build Item Spear of Desolation Build Item Rod of Tahuti

?I like building this early in Arena for more ability usage.

Build Item Chronos' Pendant

?Build no later than 2nd to ensure comfortable stacking.

Build Item Warlock's Staff

? Blink Rune is troll.

Your mobility sucks, so consider Heavenly Wings and Horrific Emblem together.

Build Item Heavenly Wings Build Item Aegis Amulet Build Item Purification Beads Build Item Horrific Emblem Build Item Blink Rune Build Item Phantom Veil

Example Completed Build
?Get Shoes of the Magi first and sell for Shoes of Focus late game.

Overall, build has good flexibility. Examples:

Boots can be built before Bancroft's Talon.

Chronos' Pendant can be built earlier or later.

4th slot is a good place for your Spear of the Magus, but if you need more lifesteal, for whatever reason, you can interchange with Typhon's Fang.

Build Item Bancroft's Talon Build Item Shoes of Focus Build Item Chronos' Pendant Build Item Spear of the Magus Build Item Typhon's Fang Build Item Gem of Isolation

Anti Loki Example Build
?Replace Shoes of the Magi with Shoes of Focus late game.

I love it when Mantle of Discord's passive denies Loki the kill (the passive may not work if it activates when he ults you because his ult makes him CC immune).

Most Loki players will build a ton of penetration. The HP from Warlock's Staff along with the protections from Mantle of Discord increase your survival chances against him.

This build focuses on survival first. Build Mantle of Discord later if the Loki is kept in check. Or replace with Chronos' Pendant if he's irrelevant.

If you feel you'd benefit more from CDR than bonus lifesteal, you can get Chronos' Pendant instead of Typhon's Fang.

Oh boy, where to begin... Be sure to keep track of him the entire game.
Keep track of when he uses his ult and how much CDR he's building.
This is how long you have to play slightly more aggressively before he targets you again.
Don't build as a glass cannon.
Stick closer to your CC heavy team mates so they can kill him if he dives you.
Purification Beads + Aegis Amulet work nicely against his ult combo (unfortunately, the reverse is also true).


Ring of Spears shuts down your lifesteal and you have no way of escaping. Buy Phantom Veil.


If you're facing a good Thanatos player, don't venture too far from your base if your front liners are struggling. Be sure to keep tabs on his CDR and when he uses his ult so you can have an idea of when to play aggressive vs. passive. Even if you have full HP, his Ult combo can still delete you.
One way to counter this is to lay down Grasping Hands directly on your feet.
Pop Aegis Amulet before he ults you.
If he silences you next, use Purification Beads.
Wrap him with Mummify and follow up with Death Gaze.
This is VERY error prone on your end. Keep in mind that if you were successful in the above steps, he can also Purification Beads+ Aegis Amulet out of your combo (meaning you burned 3 abilities while he likely only burned 2, and he'll end up killing you.)


No Escape is a death trap. If your Purification Beads are down, you can use Death Gaze to make yourself cc immune.


The taunt can lock you down and set you up to be killed.
Other guardians with good initiates (they can easily dive into the action) and hard CC fall under this threat level.
Without ally support, be sure to avoid them. Poke them with Grasping Hands to keep them away. Mummify them if they are approaching you.

Da Ji

Same deal as Ares. One Thousand Cuts makes her immune to the slow from Grasping Hands.


Watch out for Ragnarok. Your low mobility makes you a good target. Buy Purification Beads.

Introduction and Gameplay

Anubis, is the Egyptian god of the dead. He's tough to play due to having low mobility, being squishy, and his Mummify being a skill shot. However, he has enough firepower to melt the entire enemy team, if set up correctly.

Assault Mid/Late Game

Skill Order

I find Grasping Hands safe for wave clearing/harassment. I max this first.

I don't like Anubis's Plague of Locusts too much since it roots him, leaving him VERY vulnerable. However, this is one of your damaging abilities. After maxing Grasping Hands, whenever you can't put points into your ultimate, put points into this.

Max Mummify last. Other than a slightly longer stun duration, it doesn't give you too much use per level.


1. Aegis Amulet: Prevent being deleted by high, single hit damage ( Searing Pain for example).

2. Purification Beads: Escape from ultimates that will gurantee your death such as Fenrir's Ragnarok and Ares's No Escape.
Also note that your ultimate, Death Gaze, gives you CC immunity. You can consider that to save yourself from ultimates like Ragnarok or No Escape if your purification beads are down.
This item pairs well with Aegis Amulet.

3. Heavenly Wings + Horrific Emblem to slow down enemies while speeding you up to assist in retreating or securing kills.

4. Phantom Veil if there's an Odin. He may not be able to kill you by himself, especially if he's building as a full tank, but his Ring of Spears is a blaring siren that lets his team know a squishy Anubis is trapped and can't utilize his lifesteal.

General Tips/Summary

1) Stay in the back and let your team do the front lining. Clear minion waves and harass enemies with Grasping Hands.

2) Kill combo: Grasping Hands to slow an enemy down. Makes it easier to apply Mummify. Finish up with Death Gaze.
Got an annoying enemy following you? Place Grasping Hands at your feet. Chances are, the enemy will run through it. Now he's slowed. Turn around and Mummify him. Unleash Death Gaze.

Although it's a line attack, Death Gaze can go through walls. Use Grasping Hands combined with Death Gaze for some sneaky kills.
