Traditional Core Notes I emphasize that this is a traditional core. You do not need Jotunn's Wrath to be effective with her. Her kit allows for a multitude of gameplays but this is a fairly standard meta core. Please look at Build 2 for some sample builds that may not involve Jotunn's Wrath at all.

Welcome to My Guide to playing Awilix! I hope you enjoy it thoroughly. My general alias is Estidien, my real name is Jeffrey, and my IGN is Salad and over the course of my Smite career, I have gotten consitantly strong results with Awilix, hopefully I can share some of the methods of playing her that I use with you all. It's important to note that this guide (And all my other guides) are not quick reads and really get into the Nitty Gritty of how to play the God/Goddess, if you think the guides I write would really benefit from a TL;DR section please leave a comment below or send me a private message explaining your thoughts, enough attention will definitely get me to write one.

Looking to play some games with me? Just send me a friend request.

If you downvote or have any critiques on this guide PLEASE leave a comment below so I can constantly do things to make this guide better, and perhaps earn your favor back! :)

Also if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask me either on this guide's comments section (I CHECK IT DAILY!). Or send me a message in game and I'll be more than happy to help you. I didn't write this guide just to abandon it and let people that might be confused try to decipher some of what I write.

Patch Updates!

This section will be used to post any changes Hirez makes to Awilix as new patches are released. Currently since this is a freshly coded guide there are no new changes to report.

About Awilix (SUMMARY)

In Smite Awilix is a powerful Ability Based Assassin with a lot of emphasis on burst and utility. She boasts exceptionally high mobility thanks to her Summon Suku skill which allows her to move forward at increased speed and enables her to leap over many walls. Awilix also benefits from an extended basic attack range of 16 (4 Units higher than other gods) but a shortened basic attack width.

The core elements of Awilix's kit are made to allow her to maintain positional dominance over an opponent, whether it be manually re-positioning them, Managing their escapes, re-positioning herself or just outrunning her targets. All things considered she is designed to give herself the upper hand and then maintain said upper hand through quick decision making and finesse.

This isn't to say that this is all that Awilix excels at, she also has a significant amount of burst with her Feather Step and some pretty nasty CC/Damage chain combos that I will touch up on later in the guide.

In my opinion, two of the most important parts of Awilix's repertoire is her extended basic attack range which can be used and abused to your advantage when boxing opponents and catching targets. But also her powerful passive, Initiative, which gives her killing potential a significant boost if she starts fights on her own terms.

Pros / Cons

- High Maneuverability
- High burst damage
- High Outplay Potential
- Close range ability avoidance
- High Mobility
- Extended Basic Attack Range
- Powerful pursuit
- Strong early game camp clear.
- Countered by Crippling abilities
- Extremly high mana consumption if you aren't careful
- Personal Combos are difficult to carry out
- She has hard cc but it's difficult to land
- Defensive Comps CAN Shut her Down Hard

That is a major update yo.
Estidien (27) | April 10, 2019 9:24pm
Guide has recently received a major update. Please provide feedback.
Branmuffin17 (263) | April 12, 2019 12:31pm
I still think the pinkish lavender text color is a bit on the bright side...the softer/grayer color of that fancy detail might be a bit easier on the eyes. That's nitpicky of course.

So I always like discussions on how to play, especially if you're behind and need to take in specific considerations. One thing that popped into my head when reading late-game if you're behind is the turtling concept. With the S6 changes and considerations that you can continue to increase your build's strength with the shoes replacement/elixir, extending the requirement for $$$ a few minutes further than before, is it just about turtling, or is it about strategies you want to do WHILE turtling...mainly baiting and trying to get the enemy to overcommit/overextend?

I didn't re-read most of your matchups sections, but I happened to open up Ullr, and you said possibly try to save Feather Step until you see him try to use his axe stun. How good of twitch reaction do you need to pull that off at basically point-blank range???

In Assault, I might suggest a different path. I know it's not nearly an important part of your guide, but I'd say if you have a god with a knockup, you might go Jotunn's Wrath at the start so you can get more ult pulls. And a main strat for if you want to actually play her in Arena or Joust is to plan ahead, again with a god that can knockup. Sorry, I'm having flashbacks of you and freaking boogie/Jor. FU.

The amount of accurate detail and in-depth information keeps this guide as the crowning achievement of all Assassin/god guides IMO.
Estidien (27) | April 13, 2019 11:21am
I'll answer this in chunks. We'll start with turtling. If you're at a point where you need to turtle you're at a pretty significant disadvantage. With that being said you usually want to delay major fights. If someone screws up alone or overextends you should definitely take the opportunity to collapse. But you should really be looking to close the advantage gap as even if the enemy is playing a bit reckless they may still be able to overwhelm your team with the advantage. You really want to tocus on stalling rather than countering. Not to say if an opportunity arises you shouldnt take it.
boogiebass (30) | February 11, 2019 2:47pm
Nice update dude. Glad to see you back. +1 to your guide.
Kriega1 (61) | February 11, 2019 4:06pm
Executioner and Qins on Awilix? Asi?
boogiebass (30) | February 11, 2019 5:10pm
Kriega, Estidian isn't your typical smitefire author who intentionally creates a troll build and never logs back in.
He understands the game, and I'm sure he's more than willing to have a civil discussion with you about his build choices. If you have a doubt, just ask.

Hey Estidian, guide is looking good man. Just a few questions:

1) For the auto attack build, what do you think about replacing jotunns with stone cutting and trans with hydras? I feel you would get more out of AA cancelling with the scs and hydras. The hydras and deathbringer combo would be pretty strong too.

2) For the harrassment build, why hastened katana? Not quite sure what the main goal of the build is.

Otherwise, great guide man. Please stop by smitefire more often.
Estidien (27) | November 13, 2018 4:32pm
Hey Gary! Sorry for the delay on response. To answer your questions now...

1) I'm assuming you talking about Fun with Crits for this one. To start please be aware that every build in this guide are just samplers to get the ball rolling for players that are new. More experienced players would I hope be reading the jungling builds section for explained ideas and the items section for information on the items I oft recommend. To explain my reasoning behind those lineups is that I'm still a sucker for the extra CDR to cycle combos in extended fights and teamfights.

2) Hastened Katana is actually a really good item on Awilix in the right situations. It's certainly not something I would build "often" however. With the way Awilix's basic attacks are she's super potent for melee kiting. It also allows her to secure kills especially from ahead using little to no part of her kit and allowing her to cycle targets easily.
Tanhubas | July 19, 2018 12:44am
This build is simply amazing.
Estidien (27) | July 21, 2018 3:20pm
Glad they're working for you!
Estidien (27) | March 19, 2018 5:40pm
So I was wondering. I know this guide gets a reasonable amount of traffic. Would everyone rather me further this guide adding other roles and game-modes? Or postpone those updates and work on a new guide for a god/dess in need?
Branmuffin17 (263) | March 20, 2018 12:54am
I would personally suggest fleshing out your top build area a bit. Nothing crazy like what you had before, but core recognition and key options.

Then just keep that updated and start on a new, maybe simpler guide on a God that's in the meta but doesn't have a guide right now.
Estidien (27) | March 22, 2018 10:44pm
Cmon Bran you know I don't do simple, but I gotcha. I'll put some of my larger updates on hold and start on another god. The question is now... Which one am I gonna tackle?

Branmuffin17 (263) | February 20, 2018 10:24pm
There is virtually almost no reason to not pick this up. you mean that literally, figuratively, or perjoratively (yes I know that's not quite a word).

Also, almost, sort of? Should I or should I not pick this up? I'm so confused... XD

Just picking on you. FYI though, your writeup on the 2 blessings are confusing. You basically say pick both up but you can't. When would you pick up mage's over assassin's?
Estidien (27) | February 21, 2018 3:52am
Good catch, that bit was leftover text I forgot to save over from before when those 2 items were Bumbhas and Bluestone, It's fixed now. When I copied everything over from my archive (Preview for Updates) version of this guide, I forgot to do the final save on the archived one so when I went back to copy, it had reverted.
Branmuffin17 (263) | November 7, 2016 9:58pm
Hey Estidien,

So after reading your guide (first time a long time ago), I've always had an interest in playing her, but knew I'd probably suck...she's definitely got a higher skill ceiling, and I'm pretty much in the basement, hahaha.

That said, read up on your guide again, and finally played her (by choice, not by rolling randomly in Assault)...played a Siege match with Taco (***bha), GGF (SWK), and Pappsi (Nu Wa). It didn't end well for us, but it was definitely fun to play her.

I used your old build that you now title as good for beginners... Warrior Tabi, Jotunn's Wrath, Breastplate of Valor, Stone Cutting Sword, Bulwark of Hope, and was building toward The Crusher (because we still needed to take down a few of their objectives).

Tried to remember the combos, but damn if I didn't land even one Ult...I guess I need to go into Jungle Practice. I did remember to try for two basics before using her 2, but ugh...bad at the combos. Just not natural for me. I'm going to play her again sometime, but I'll wait for Taco to forget that game...I told him it was my first real time playing her, and that I kept screwing up the combos, and he (jokingly...I think) said...Bran, we're going to have a talk after!

Anyway, it's awesome when a guide makes you WANT to play a god (even if you're scared to). Yours definitely does.

The one thing I will say on the flipside is that you now have SO MANY's a bit too convoluted for me to look through each one. Any way to possibly simplify a bit?

I'd upvote, but I upvoted a long time ago, so...good job.
Estidien (27) | November 10, 2016 7:57pm
Hey Branmuffin17. I'm glad my guide got that response out of you!! And I'm actually just experimenting with this layout. I'm testing out a whole new guide layout with my up and coming Ymir Guide when it comes to how I explain the builds, I'm going to include an entire section of the guide to explaining the builds.

However I would like your input on one thing assuming you end up reading this comment. With that being said should I also consider reworking my 2 "Build-A-Build" sections as well as making an explained build list. I realize my "Make your own Awilix build" strategy was pretty popular but I also think people might get better information if I just include a whole bunch of builds and explain what they're good for. I'm definitely looking for input this time from the community. My Awilix guide is a mess right now, currently in the middle of a recode and redesign and I'm trying to figure out what approaches I would like to take.
Branmuffin17 (263) | November 10, 2016 11:35pm
Hey dude, okay, so um...this guide is definitely in transition, lol!

I think it all depends on how much of your various builds share some key items. Are ALL of those builds you have truly viable? If some are really more of a "fun" type, I might put those on the backburner or title them as such, later in the build list.

In the same train of thought, if some of those are extremely situational, I might take those out and just have a small section talking about the situational items, when they're good choices, and where you'd insert them in a standard build.

If they're all viable in different circumstances...dude, seriously, I've never seen so many builds!!!!!!

I'd suggest putting the build you say is considered most meta as the first build...but if that's not the variant you personally prefer, I'd put your preferred one first.

In the end, you just have so many builds right now, it's hard to say how this would be best presented. So my main points stand...
  • Take out non-essential builds
  • If you've got a core that's usually the same (e.g. Warrior Tabi, Jotunn's Wrath as first 2), use those, and list all variants and situational items below those.

Thing is, this is a guide, not an engineering template for a specific item. You are a crazy high level player, and you alter your builds to each match's unique situation with crazy precision. So, unless you have a specific build that is just never changing, give the reader the base that's essential, give them a couple of examples for the most common complete builds, list the situational items together perhaps (or split into categories as you see fit), and then explain in detail in the body of the guide.

Anyway, that's my opinion. You're too high level for me, and my head's gonna explode from your variety! LOL.

Love this guide, I main Awilix with over 300 wins, over 2000 kills, and over 1000 assists. Your guide started me out and it got me to where I am today so I want to say thank you! Everything is so in depth and so well explained I absolutely love this guide, my favorite on the internet. After months of trying many many different builds for the moon goddess, Ive learned that, in fact, your build 1 does the most amount of damage possible with full CDR and boots. No matter what else you build, you can not achieve more consistent damage than build 1 (I say consistent because I hate crit on awilix), and I don't think you should say it's out-dated because it worked for me when I first started out with awilix, and coming back to it after months it works even better. I used to be a huge fan of transcendence on her, but after some math and experience I learned that a simple titan's bane does more damage than a fully stacked trans. I also wonder why in your newly updated build 3 you recommend masamune so much, considering it does far less damage than stone cutting sword, and with SCS's reduction in price, it's undeniably the best mid game item for Awilix. Anyway, love the guide and I can't wait for the re-coded updated version!
Estidien (27) | November 10, 2016 9:18pm
Hey Cookieman301 thanks for dropping by. I seem to have failed to point out that in those 10 builds Masamune is interchangeable with Stone Cutting Sword I like Masamune a lot because of it's passive and relative inexpensiveness, but you are right when you say that Stone Cutting Sword does a bit more damage overall. In regards to your statement on build 1 I'd still honestly say it's a bit outdated with the current Hydra's Lament being how strong it is. You can build Jotunn's Wrath into Hydra's Lament and throw in a Void Shield and that will increase your damage output tremendously compared to build 1 dropping your CDR by only 5% comparatively.
Cookieman301 | November 11, 2016 9:33am
Well of course that would work,it all comes down to personal preference. I have been loving stone cutting sword after it's reduction in price, and for me titan's bane + qin's sais is a must to maximize her damage output. So that really only leaves one more slot, which is why I like breastplate. I've tried hydra's, and it's nice especially with it's mp5 extra passive, but it doesn't really work for me compared to jotunn's wrath amazing early game aggression. The movement speed is nice too from SCS, considering suku is a little slow for a panther :P
newbiemj (12) | October 27, 2016 8:17am
Great guide! I am about 110 matches into Awilix and just enjoy her kit so much. I would like your thought on my build. I usually run a high pen build with her.
Warrior Tabi Jotunn's Wrath Hydra's Lament Asi Deathbringer Brawler's Beat Stick

I know Deathbringer isn't the best lone crit item but I have had success with it and just keep using it haha. It's nice seeing damage in the practice jungle at around 1000 depending on which hit crits and I know Brawler's Beat Stick passive isn't as useful unless it's a healer, but I love the pen. I would occasionally change it out for defensive item like Spirit Robe for some protection. I never thought about using Mail of Renewal on her and definitely will try it out.
Estidien (27) | October 27, 2016 8:59pm
Hey, thanks for dropping by! I'll get down to the point with your build and just say that I like it. It's got everything in it that you really need to be successful. Only thing I would change if I were using it would be Deathbringer for Malice but you've stated yourself that you enjoy and see success with Deathbringer so I'd say keep using it if it's working. Don't wanna mess with your Mojo.

In regards to Mail of Renewal is it still hiding in my guide somewhere? I haven't recommended that item for a while now.
newbiemj (12) | October 28, 2016 6:13am
Whoops, yeah I think I was reading the comments from awhile ago and got confused haha.
NateHawk85 | October 18, 2016 11:26am
Great guide! Definitely one of the more in-depth ones I've seen on this site. One suggestion: Have you tried the new Hydra's Lament with Awilix instead of / in addition to Jotunn's Wrath? My standard core build I've been using (since the update) has been Bumbas > Hydra's > (Jotunn's OR Spirit Robe) > Other option > Stone-Cutting OR pen > Situational (usually pen)

The full CDR is incredible, and I use spirit robe since the only time I find myself in bad situations is when I get locked down due to hard CC.

I've found she thrives on Hydra's as the suku > basic > feather step > basic > moonlight charge > basic > gravity surge > basic combo, combined with her passive, is INSANE. That's 120% extra damage from the Hydra passive, which (I believe) stacks with her own passive. If that's true, she deals around 160% of her physical damage just from Hydra's alone (if you land her full combo).

Just felt like making a suggestion. Keep up the good work!
Estidien (27) | October 19, 2016 11:41am
Hey thanks for leaving a comment (And the upvote if it was you). Yeah I've done a bit of experimenting with Hydra's Lament but I've been spending a lot more time focusing on my HyperPen/Damage builds, going back to my roots. Hydra's Lament is definitely good right now. I just haven't done enough experimenting with it to really include it anywhere as of right now.
StormCor | September 19, 2016 4:13pm
Oh my god... This guide is AWESOME These games are my best assassin games yet. the 18-2 game is also the game I got my first Godlike. Awesome guide. Also have you ever considered Hastened Fatalis on Awilix? It's great for boxing and the extra movemenent speed is great for a jungler
Estidien (27) | September 20, 2016 9:36pm
Hi StormCor, It's great to see that you're having so much success! To answer your question, Yes I had considered Hastened Fatalis on Awilix many times when I was first crafting my builds. What I ultimately discovered is that it really wasn't necessary. While I agree that the extra movement speed is great for a jungler, Awilix inherently doesn't really need that passive to stick and confirm kills on targets. If you want the movement speed side of it picking up a Stone Cutting Sword or Masamune would give a much more desirable effect, increasing damage quite significantly. The true reason you would get Hastened Fatalis is for its passive. But with Awilix having a kit designed about maintaining positional dominance over an opponent, you just end up sacrificing a lot of burst and DPS over other items.

Don't let my opinion stop you though, if you're seeing success with Hastened Fatalis in your matchmaking then do what works for you.
StormCor | September 21, 2016 6:45pm
Thank for the reply! I tested out Hastened Fatalis in Conquest and it didn't work to good. The reason why i use it in Joust is that Joust has a lot of tiny spaces and you have to resort to you using basic attacks in a 1V1. If your up against a Hunter you have to be close and fast so they dont kill you when your on top of them. Thats why I build Hastened Fatalis on Awilix in Joust. I Probably wont build it on her when im playing Conquest tho. I respect your opinion on this item and i hope you do as well!
