Relics Notes Magic shell always go for the 500 upgrade off the bat trust me
The second item that net me more kills and helped secure was horrific emblem the only trouble ama comes up against is sticking to targets and this item helps with that but ultimately the preference m is up to you, blink is fun if you want to get frisky and ult into a team aegis for emergency’s if you ever need it but most the time I just go with upgraded shell and horrific emblem and beads aren’t really need if an area pulls you in wait till it’s over pop your 2 switch to gold aura and dash out of it same with people like hades or Anubis (those gods are the only reason I ever really ever get beads)

*After getting feed back from other awesome smite players and some friends who have played longer than I have I made minor adjustments to my original build. I have played 10 games with both versions of the build and have settled on the posted as the most reliable*

Items replaced if interested were Genji over Oni and Masamune over Midgardion

This main build is usually always going to be what you want to run with.

Warrior tabi for power and speed duh

Breastplate for that sweet defense and cool down reduction

*Genis Gaurd over Oni!* reason being is found my self in sitauations where I was getting attacked often enough to make use of Genis Cool Down from attacks

Hide of the Urchin ....your role in team fights will net you the evolved form which gives you a sexy shield while also giving you both magic and physical defense

Mantle of discord for again more of that sweet defense both magic and physical and some CC immunity

*Masamune over Midgardion Mail!* as user Hadeyan pointed out physical protections from this build are already high i found switching to masamune helped me net more kills with the movement speed and plus both magical and physical protection stacks along with a good chunk of power

Optional Items
Hastensed Katana usually used just for fun if you find yourself not taking much damage by the time you hit your last item pick you can choose this so you can attack dummy’s in the face

Spectral armor occasionally when playing arena you’ll face a team that is mostly physical. Basically if there’s 4 physical attackers and 1 mage I’d drop Oni for this but if it’s 3 physical two Mage I would stick with the normal build ...anyways this Items decent physical defense and cool down AND any crits that hit you are reduced to half damage
(Mantle and Hide should net you a decent magic defense to compensate for the one mage)

Oni Hunters if facing an all or mostly magic team drop breastplate just as mirrored above

DONT DIE (long read sorry)

Fisrt In this guide (I don’t know to add fancy pics) her abilities

1 is Divine Presence
This ability you need to understand and an easy y way to sum it up is, when your golden (little circle under ama) you move faster and get health YAY (your teammates will get the speed boost too) if your red you do more damage YAYYAY (so do friends!) Simply put ...use this ability a lot personally I like to have the gold aura on when leaving fountain to get to fights faster also to help teammates that are weak out of a fight or to get them into a fight! Simple right! now when a team fight occurs or you decide whos nerd face you want to hit make sure you switch to the red aura and BAM just smack that tool in a team fight you should really never switch out of the red aura because it’s boost to damage might be the deciding factor of who wins BUT if you really need to get you and your friends out of dodge then dont be stingy and Speed boost (gold aura) outta there!

2 is Heavnly Reflection
This mitigates damage and also launches it back at nerds when charged up or if you press the ability button again you can fire early, it’s great for clearing minions also EVERY TIME YOU FIGHT A GOD IT SHOULD BE UP AND EVERY TIME YOURE ABOUT TO GET SMACKED UP HAVE IT UP AND EVERYTIME YOUR LOW HEALTH AND YOU THINK YOUR SAFE AND YOUR LIMPING BACK TO BASE HAVE IT UP! anyways most players will attack you with all they got when you bum rush their dumb nerd faces so pop 2 absorb damage and then launch it right back at’em this ability is great for finishing weakened gods running away an example would be to pop 2 and run into an enemys attack to charge it (yes run into an attack on purpose) then pop 3 (your dash) and charge towards the poor sap who thinks theyre safe and watch them die when they get a mirror shot to the spine... it’s customary to then turn around and thank his teammate who assisted you for helping YOU kill that nerd!

3 is Glorious Charge
Ama in arena is all about prioritizing gods and her 3 is great for chasing down a target to start an attack chain or to chase and silence dweebs attacking your teammates if you dash to attack and find your self in a bad spot no worries simply pop your 2 (remember because it negates damage) pop 1 to switch from red aura to gold for the speed and health boost and get outta town .... you can also use her 3 to escape ults that suck the life out of you more than your depression I.E the hades bear hug or to simply reposition yourself as needed

4 is Dazzing Offense
Her ult is the finsihiser or initiator I found my self using her ult to escape a lot when using other builds because I was so squishy but with this build you can take damage extremely well so I’ve never found myself freaking out and trying to ult away from people so I don’t die I found my self using it way more often offensively which is great because that’s what it’s for just remember hitting gods with all three strikes stuns and silences them and people seem to underestimate its damage late game if you use this before the team fight and are able to stun at least 3 gods your team can swoop in and finish up the job

Her passive is important! to próc it you need to hit whatever enemy your after 3 times be it god or minions with a basic attack so they take more damage from all sources REMEBER THIS and prioritize a single god so you and your friends can smack that weeb in the mouth

Basic Combos are usually this

Pop 1 into Red aura and walk up to an enemy god and smack that nerds mouth
pop 2 and absorb all the damnage while still smacking them in the mouth (this should próc your passive at that point)
Pop 3 to chase or silence (at this point your 2 should have blown awsy some health)
Rinse and repeat 1,2,3

Additionally you can save three for a quick escape

Also additionally You can start that simple combo off using your ult or end this combo using your ult yeah finish or initiate as needed

That would like
4,1,2,3 or 1,2,3,4

And yeah thats the basics Ama is very situational..and hit stay for a little bit and run styled ...all in all map/god awareness is key also watching your cool downs is extremely important this build will have them up and running a lot so use them! And DONT be afraid to jump in and attack someone! SMACK ALL THEM MOUTHS! Still there’s gonna be times where you feel invincible but you’re not and you have to play smart even if your realIze you’re 7 and 0 don’t get cocky! also focus on attacking squishys i myself hardly ever bother attacking tanks UNLESS I know I have at least 2 other teammates with me to help destroy them but all in all yeah this build has net me a 6.0 K/D and a stupid amount of assists the most I’ve died playing in an arena match is 3 times averaging at least 10 kills a match which yeah sure isint crazy high but when you get stuck in games where your teammates have died 20 times and you’ve died once and your attacking 4 people while shrugging off hit after hit you’ll truly feel like well ...a god

I think this build would be great when you're in a team that has a lot damage carries. And you're the only tanky god. Then Yes with this build Ama can provide huge assistance for her team as a frontliner.


If you've another warrior or guardian in that team comp. And your team lack of burst damage. Then with this build Ama would be useless as an offensive figure.

Yes the name of the build is "Dont Die" ı get it. But with a tanky and slow team this build also can be named as "Can't kill" build.

Imo Midgardian Mail only is a situational item. You already have 155 Physical protection even w/o Midgardian. And has extra 250 health via Urchin.

I think you should trade Midgardian Male with Masamune. This would make her more mobile, adds more physical power, gives 100 health extra and also it has a protection amplifier passive which will proc with your #2 ability.

Or Do you really need more physical protection at least bring Void Shield.

Or Do you really want to be the ultimate frontliner that dive into enemy team. Or boxing out 1 or 2 opponent. Basicaly try to create opportunities for your hyper carries. Buy, Frostbound hammer. Its kinda do what Midgardian Mail do but this time enemy not gonna slow by their attacks but instead by your attacks. Plus this one is gonna give you 25 Physical Power and same health as midgardian mail(same price).

At least with these options you still "dont die" but also "can kill". Have a nice day.

P.S= Aegis not a good relic options for her. And with this bruiser build horrific emblem would be much better option.

Nice! I really like this reply next time I play I’ll switch mail for masmune and see how it goes and yes this build is really team focused which I mean when I ply arena I would say at least 80 percent of the game my team is good enough and doing enough damage to make it viable but yaeh I agree completely with your tips! Thanks!
