Ability
Ultimate

Ability Combos



The Combo of Grasping Hands + Mummify allows you to push & poke the enemy team in all stages of the game. This Combo gives you a decent amount early game push in order to get ahead of the enemy team.

There are 2 ways that this combo can be done. You can first use Mummify to stun the enemy and then place Grasping Hands under them. This way is a bit ineffective because the stun time on Mummify is fairly short (1.2/1.4/1.6/1.8/2 Seconds). A more efficient and effective way of using this combo is first placing Grasping Hands under the enemy and then using Mummify to trap then inside it.
Difficulty
Easy

Example of Combo: Video


The Combo of Grasping Hands + Mummify + Plague of Locusts allows you to push & poke the enemy just like in the 1st Combo but, this Combo calls for more damage. With the addition of Plague of Locusts this Combo turned from early game aggression to potentially an early game kill.

Although this combo is powerful it does have its weakness. The ability Plague of Locusts self roots Anubis for the abilities duration. Be aware of your surroundings and enemy positions when initiating this combo for the self root leaves you vulnerable to enemy ganks and focusing.
Difficulty
Hard

Example of Combo: Video



This Combo of Grasping Hands + Mummify + Death Gaze when executed properly is almost always an Instakill on the enemy. (Depending on enemy Protections & Health)

Just like the 2nd Combo, this Combo is powerful but, should be used with caution for this Combo has a self root in Death Gaze which leaves Anubis very vulnerable. In addition, if you are a new Anubis player and not comfortable with landing his Mummify, you may want to hold off on this Combo until you become more comfortable with landing Mummify consistently.
Difficulty
Medium

Example of Combo: Video

This build is devastating. Your Personal Final build in joust after some experience with it just got me 3 surrenders followed by a stomp where two members of the enemy team quit.

Nice guide. I like those tables. You've seen my Artemis guide, but I'm not all that "amazing" at this stuff. How'd you do those tables? They look cool.

Now, I'm not Sir. Guide-Alot, but I'm missing something here... colors c:

Now I'm not saying you need to make a coloring book out of this, but giving important stuff a color may lighten the reading.

Here's an example:

Your style:
Anubis is a good God that does great damage lategame. He can melt enemies very easily. His abilities have high scaling and defenitely hurt alot. You'll want to buy Warlock's Sash as it gives you alot of power and mana.

What I'd suggest:
Anubis is a good God that does great damage lategame. He can melt enemies very easily. His abilities have high scaling and defenitely hurt alot. You'll want to buy Warlock's Sash as it gives you alot of power and mana.

This is just a small example and I can't get any high detail examples as I'm writing a comment and not an essay... which this may actually look like allready but shh.

With the colors the reader can easily and instantly see what the pro's and cons are of something. Right now, you'd have to read through the text allmost entirely to find out what some things do, like the items, and not everybody may have half an hour to read the guide.
With colors, the people can instantly see what an item does, and if they want they can still read the grey text for more information.

Overall amazing guide, nice "rulers" you've got going on, and those tables O_o, so organized c:
I love it! Just the colors is my only "complaint".

Thank you for the generous comments and thank you for the criticism! I'll work on adding more color to emphasize points to make them easily stand out.

As for the tables I'll PM you about them! :)

Just as an idea, it's not so much the use of color as what the color does...which is, it emphasizes and otherwise makes specific words stand out.

You DO have some color in the guide...anytime you link a name to the database...and in some tables (green yellow red is easily applicable to get your point across)...but otherwise, this is a sort of gothic feel, at least how I see it. Your dividers are grey and have that type of feel.

As such...rather than various colors...you might just consider white. Or...bolded white. Keeps the monochrome feel, but still gives the emphasis.

Flippin Amazing. Right one thing first Papa Murmz, you crafted a excellent guide for new comers especially a lot better than what I did with my Season 3 Revamp guide. You explain different item types which is a amazing detail! But one item I do suggest you tinker around with is Hide of the Urchin while it is a strange choice I find it to be a excellent item on someone like Anubis, giving him a least 100 physical protections and 96 magical protections this item combine with Warlock's is amazing for surprise tankage (Yes, I made up that word and I like it. BONANZA!) as Anubis. It helps with a mix of magical and phsyical attackers. However I think Mantle would be more useful if you get dog piled on.

Thanks for the compliment! I will definitely test out Hide of the Urchin on Anubis next time I paly him! Also, you are most certainly right with Mantle of Discord helping you if you get dog-piled! I will add that into it's description but, I guess my main point on that item was that it virtually shuts down the effectiveness of Loki's Ultimate allowing teams to counter him easily. Thanks for the suggestion, I can't wait to try it!

Gorgeous guide, definitely an upvote from me. In fact if you wouldn't mind sharing how you did the colored tables with me I would be super grateful. I've been meaning to "Prettify" some sections of my Awilix guide and bbcoding like that is still foreign to me. Of course you'll get a big fat reference in my guide.

holy **** this is pretty, i wonder why you got downvoted, though.

anyways, my only concern is that you should maybe get your pen item before Rod of Tahuti, so you can use it in a more efficient way.

here, take my upvote +1.

Papa Murmz (16) | August 20, 2016 6:55am
Thanks for the suggestion, I will try out getting Spear of the Magus before Rod of Tahuti next time I play Anubis and to be honest no clue about the downvotes? The guide was in fairly rough shape prior to this overhaul.

I would say the guide covers majority of the vital information, which is also presented in a very fashionable way; really good job with modifying its appearance.

Regarding the build itself; it seems very solid to me, and it's sure to yield successful games but I'd like to mention some thoughts that came to my mind.

I think that adding a "start" section would be a helpful feature; because there are a few viable ways to do so: for example starting with a Talon Trinket, or a starter item along with a Potion of Magical Might, and finally there's a safe option of buying a Golden Sash- which I can only assume is the case but then again it's not that obvious when willing to take the Book of Thoth route.

The thing that you might want to alter though, would be the information about Shoes of the Magi mentioned alongside with the Shoes of Focus- as they provide 10 points of penetration, and not 10%.

Last thing that I may suggest would be to consider mentioning Breastplate of Valor under Situational/ or Defence sections- it is such an effective utility item aspecially when facing a team with double- physical damage dealers; which paired with a Warlock's Sash provides a fair amount of effective health allowing for better chances for survival in many situations

I am new to playing Anubis and Smite and this guide has really helped me with Anubis and in Joust! I was lost on what to build and I was just using the "Popular Items" which seemed to change every time I entered a new game! Thank you for a great guide!
