Bakasura Threats

Tap each threat level to view Bakasura’s threats


So you want to main Bakasura?

Great choice. Bakasura is an amazing jungler and ganker, who is able to destroy squishies and shred tanks.

There's a couple of things to remember when playing Bakasura.


Every minion or creature you eat, it gives you a stack on your passive. More stacks equal more minions from your ultimate. That's always a good thing because:


It's really easy to forget about, but when you're low on health in a teamfight, you can easily just eat one of your regurgitated minions for a hefty heal.

General tips and tricks

90% of the time I use Take Down as an escape tool. It's generally best to use it this way until you get halfway through the build (around Stone Cutting Sword) and are able to shred anybody in-range.

Don't forget you can eat big jungle creeps if they're at or below 33% health. It's a huge timesaver and can secure contested jungle buffs easily in the early game.

ALWAYS HAVE BUTCHER BLADES UP. I cannot stress this enough. I've seen Baka players rush in and not have Butcher Blades activated until several seconds into the fight. There's no reason not to have these up. It sounds redundant, but oh god.

Regurgitate is the ultimate pentakill move. If you rushed Golden Blade, you'll see what I mean. Tons of damage. Everywhere.


My way to play Baka is to prioritize jungle camps no matter what. Staying ahead is the name of the game. Once you're one or two levels ahead of your enemies, then I'd start ganking.

Always make sure you have at least 3 stacks of your passive before ganking, just for utility purposes (healing and chip damage).

Always prioritize the squishies of the group. With my build you can easily 3-4 shot them. Warriors and Guardians should be easy once you have Hastened Katana.

Butcher blades are your tank buster. Use them along with the items in my build to easily shred anybody with protections.

Don't be afraid to tower dive. Eat Minion is an AMAZING self heal ability. Once you reach mid-level, you'll be healing for 1/3 of your health easily. If you have regurgitate, you can always eat your own minions while running or under the enemy tower for prolonged engagement.

So i've been using bloodforge on him recently and I love the chain kills you can do with it, is it ok to build it earlier like 3rd or 4th item without losing too much damage early game?
CupidBunny | November 21, 2019 3:37pm
I'm VERY new to smite and wanna get better with bakasura. I have no idea on builds (just yet) and wanna try this one but I'm confused of the order? If someone can list the order of the items 1-6 I would greatly appreciate it.

The build from the author is a Conquest jungle build.

Start is assassin’s blessing, tier 1 Katana, 1 health pot and 1 mana pot.

Build: Golden Blade, Ninja Tabi, Hastened Katana, Stone Cutting Sword, Ichaival, sell Assassin’s blessing and buy The Executioner. Sell Ninja Tabi lategame for Elixir Of Speed and Qin’s Sais.

Personally I would prioritise Qins over Ichaival though.
Devampi (104) | November 22, 2019 3:10am
and all the item below are considered alternatives for mostly Ichaival (and technically also for executioner however I would not skip out on it)
JulesPoseidon | November 3, 2019 2:37am
Hey ! I've been using this build for a long time now and it is near perfect ! I just don't see any use to the ninja tabi, I just rush hastened instead and it works pretty well!
Kriega1 (122) | November 3, 2019 6:11am
Ninja tabi is because it got buffed a while ago, and the movement speed from the katana's were nerfed, and hastened katana also had it's price increased.

Ninja tabi is bought after golden blade in this author's build for the early game power spike.

I don't think Cupid is threat to baka but the rest seems pretty good to me.
Nice job!
Kriega1 (122) | August 15, 2019 9:51pm
Add magi’s/Mantle as situational
Shibakee | August 15, 2019 11:15pm
Added, although I rarely get to the point where I need to buy these items.
Kriega1 (122) | August 15, 2019 11:55pm
Also Toxic Blade as well I forgot, maybe Atalanta’s Bow as well.
