Smite God: Anubis

Item Purchase Order

Opening Offense
?Anubis' capacity for life-steal is huge due to his multiple AoE abilities and high damage output and his passive. Bancroft's is the opening selection to give Anubis some sustainability. Beyond that, the build is purely power/penetration with the added CDR from Chronos'.

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

Mid-Game Penetration (Pick One)
?I personally prefer to SotM over SoD, for the reduced protections passive; however, the SoD adds CDR which is a huge perk.

Build Item Spear of Desolation Build Item Spear of the Magus

?Chronos' CDR is incredibly helpful since Anubis' basic attack is pretty worthless and his only form of escape is to slow using Grasping Hands and casually saunter away.

Build Item Chronos' Pendant

Late-Game Flexibility (Pick One)
?Go with RoT for raw power or the Doom Orb to get a boost to movement speed since Anubis has no escape. The GoI can add another stack of slow onto your abilities.

Build Item Rod of Tahuti Build Item Doom Orb Build Item Gem of Isolation

Late-Game Lifesteal (Pick One)
?Pythagorem's will offer some additional CDR, but Typhon's Fang is a perfect complement to Anubis' passive.

Build Item Pythagorem's Piece Build Item Typhon's Fang

?Anubis' greatest weakness is escaping. These relics provide some help when you need to bail on the battle.

Build Item Heavenly Wings Build Item Aegis Amulet Build Item Blink Rune Build Item Purification Beads

?These items are pretty standard. In the early-game you'll need to supplement your mana regen. The Potion of Magical Might is a cost effect boost for mid-game damage. Wards are critical to ensure you don't get ambushed since Anubis has no escape abilities.

Anubis: Who's a Good Boy?

July 16, 2018


Anubis is high-risk/high-reward type of god. His abilities allow for large burst damage on wide areas and controlling enemies movements; however, he is very fragile. He relies primarily on life-steal for sustainability, but if you can maintain awareness of your enemies and avoid getting into a close range brawl, Anubis can control any game mode.

Anubis' primary combo takes the form:
Grasping Hands -> Mummify -> Swarm of Locusts

Grasping Hands slows enemies, making it easier to land the Mummify stun and still damaging the stunned enemy. Swarm of Locusts closes out the combo with high damage, but can be swapped with Death Gaze if available to hit even harder.


All of Anubis' abilities steal Physical and Magical Protection from the target and increase his Healing obtained from Magical Lifesteal. These effects stack on every tick of Anubis' abilities. Sorrow also grants Anubis an additional 30% reduction to all Crowd Control durations.

Protections Stolen Per Stack: 7
Increased Healing Per Stack: 33%
Duration: 5s
Max Stacks: 3
A plague of locusts bellows forth from Anubis' mouth, smothering all enemies in the area and doing damage every .5s for 3s. Anubis is immune to Knockback while channeling.

Damage per Tick: 23/28/33/38/43 +15% of magical power
Cooldown: 90/85/80/75/70 seconds
Mana Cost: 90

Pros / Cons

-High Area Damage
-High Burst Damage
-Great crowd control
-Bonus penetration/life-steal

-Low movement speed
-No escape
-Stun is most difficult ability to land


These two builds focus on making Anubis a dangerous offensive weapon. Landing his abilities and utilizing his penetration/life-steal boost means high burst damage and sudden health regen, but if you can't land his abilities, you'll be stuck relying on his weak basic attack and limited movement speed. Your style of play should build around ambushing unaware enemies or initiating the attack with your crowd control abilities.


As Anubis stun 15 enemy gods using mummify in a single match.
As Anubis kill an enemy with Death Gaze from Behind a Wall.
