Rules You Need To Know

Rules:


1- Always do your best!
2- Always Build some Protection to use your 3 as much as you can.
3- Never go for bumbask mask (why tf people do this i just cant understand) ( Removed from the game)
4- Heal your team, deal at least 25k healing in a normal game.
5- Stay safe in early, farm well. Hels early is kinda weak.
6- If you are a beginner do NOT play Hel as your first God / Goddess. I did this mistake and still can't increase my k/d because of my first games.
7- Stay calm and relax. Nothing is easy at first, you will get better with time.
8- NEVER EVER BE TOXIC !!! Pls just don't...
9- Win!
10- War in real life is not cool.

Note: I dont think %60 CDR Hel works as good as my other builds but Im working on it, its coming soon.

Pros / Cons

Pros:
1- High Healing
2- High Damage
3- CC Clean
4- She is HOT!

Cons:
1- Weak Early
2- Anti Healing is a big problem for you
3- No Escape Ability
4- That Anti Heal Thing that just added with S8 update is just annoying. Hi Rez pls if you want to nerf Aphro just Nerf Her! Not all the Healers!

One thing I don't like about this build is the skill order. Her 2 is a set up for her 1 and 3. It can also be used as a huge help in team battles.
1
Kriega1 (134) | December 11, 2021 2:32pm
Yeah you should be doing 3 (or 1) > 1 (or 3) > 1 (or 2) > 2 (or 1 if 2 before) > 4. Then maxing 1 > 3 > 2 > 4.
1
Branmuffin17 (370) | May 12, 2022 10:32am
I would still agree w/ this order. I don't know that I'd delay the 2 until level 6, though I get the reasons for doing so.

CookieTheBest | December 26, 2021 5:05am
I have to disagree with you

Big Damage (35) | May 28, 2021 11:33pm
I have to downvote as there is 0% penetration in a mid mage build. You need minimum 30% for a cookie cutter build like this. To follow your current builds goals I would suggest:

Sands of Time > Shoes of Focus > Spear of Desolation / Divine Ruin > Soul Gem > Rod of Tahuti > Obsidian Shard > Pendulum of Ages > Swap boots for Mantle of Discord

I would normally recommend Charon's Coin > Rod of Tahuti but with the MP5 from your passive this gives you a total of 99MP5 late game. If you wanted Book of Thoth still then maybe start T2 Book of Souls and do this:

Book of Thoth > Shoes of Focus > Breastplate of Valor / Chronos' Pendant > Rod of Tahuti > Obsidian Shard > Gem of Focus > Swap boots for Soul Gem / Mantle of Discord

This build caps your MP5, gives you a lot of mana to use but instead of opting for Pendulum of Ages it opens you up to Gem of Focus, which feels great on Hel because she generally spams abilities and can make great use of the passive effects.
(If you go Breastplate then get Soul Gem, if you get Chronos' then get Mantle)

Aside from those points about the builds, I also wouldn't suggest:

I'm semi new to the game and I'm interested in hel would you be willing to make an updated build for newer but quick learners? Just a question 👍🏻

I would love to make more builds and update my current ones but I'm very busy recently with work, college and mentoring Smite on Discord. If you need guidance you can DM me here, add my Discord (Biggie D#2361) or in the SmiteFIRE Discord, Official Smite Discord and R/Smite Discord you can find me usually available to help when I'm not working or sleeping :P

Thanks for this. I just got back in after 2 years without playing, and this was quite helpful. I've moved on from it, but it was certainly a helpful refresher/starting point while I got used to the game again.
Edit: ah... sorry for the necro, but maybe you appreciate the thanks anyway.

Devampi (105) | June 20, 2020 2:37am
Let me fill you in on what to do against Anubis:
Pretty much the deal against him is just like with a Hades he will heavily out pressure you. Combine this with Hel weaker early game and having to get close to minions, will result in a harder early lane. On top of that, he can kill anyone that gets mummified if his ult is up. The last problem a lot of people have is the healing he gets from lifesteal. The only disadvantage that he trades in for this is his immobility since he roots himself during 2 abilities and has no escape.

So from this, we have some goals when playing against him.
The first one is to predict and dodge as many Mummifys as we can. Since you're playing Hel, you also have the goal of cleansing them from your jungler. This becomes especially important if Anubis has his ultimate up.

The second important early game goal is (like with any god) to not let him get kills. Compared to other mages, he can snowball pretty harshly with some early kills. Part of this lies in not taking to much unnecessary poke. As Hel your best moment to clear the wave is after he used his Grasping Hands.

The last early game goal normally depends on the strength of the jungler. Since Anubis is immobile bad positioning can easily kill him. However, since Hel early game is pretty bad I would recommend the jungler to play safe and not gank if his ult or mummify is up.

The last goal during a game against Anubis is pretty simple: get anti-heal. This is also the reason he falls of late. A lot of damage dealers can outburst Anubis lifesteal if he is affected by anti-heal. Do keep in mind that multiple sources work best against this and are needed if he grabs Typhon's Fang.

Kriega1 (134) | June 20, 2020 3:30am
What are you talking about “Hel weak early game”? Do you even play her?
2
Big Damage (35) | June 20, 2020 3:32pm
She has a weird power curve, whereas Anubis is more a a slope starting higher up and going downwards, Hel is a curvy/wavy power curve. She can hit pretty hard for the first 4 levels and then it's mana and mobility issues from there on out, even if she does get an early snowball for her power to be relevant mid game until around 25-30 mins into the game.

Hide of urchin good on her in mid lane? Better than mantle?

Kriega1 (134) | June 19, 2020 1:24pm
Better than Mantle? probably not. But you build Urchin for a different reason, just general tankiness. Mantle is for utility (though prots helps against frontliners and junglers that haven't build titans/exe).

I dont really build Urchin on Hel or any mids though.

Gulfwulf (81) | June 19, 2020 1:09pm
Meditation cloak? What mode is this for? Med is terrible in Conquest; you're better off with Purification Beads. Yes I know Hel can cleanse CC via her Cleanse, but that won't always be up. As Boogie pointed out, you don't need Mantle of Discord in every game and Hide of the Urchin is built a bit too late to be of any real use unless you're snowballing the enemy team. You're better off getting Lotus Crown as your primary defense option because it has inherent physical defense for dealing with assassins, as well as magical defense whenever you heal yourself and/or an ally. No offense, but this is far from a "perfect" Hel build.
1
boogiebass (46) | June 19, 2020 11:36am
Skill order needs work
Relics need work
Mantle is not core in every single game. Defense in a damage build is situational.
I don't agree with mantle and hide in the same build together.

Branmuffin17 (370) | June 19, 2020 1:34pm
Also should have options for Rod of Asclepius and Lotus Crown.
