Baron Samedi, The god of life and death...

Introduction!

Hello! And welcome to my first BIG in-depth guide on Baron Samedi. I have taken a liking to this mage and would like to give you my best builds and a guide on how to play him in both mid lane and in the support lane, as he is a really good support god amongst the mages.
Oh, I forgot to introduce myself! I am Lukatomic, a new build creator and I am trying to start a YouTube channel. You can just call me Luka/Luke, I dont really care. But I am a really good Chernobog main and Ganesha main, even though my Chernobog build isn't liked by alot of people, for some reason... but I am always trying out new ganesha builds and I am going to completely change my ganesha build and turn it into a guide in the future. As for my personal life, nobody needs to know that! All you need to know is that I am a really good player, and by that I don't get toxic 90% of the time, unless they deserve it, lol.
That's all I have to say about myself, so let's get into the next chapter of this entire guide.

Baron samedi, for beginners

If you are a beginner, I would only read this chapter as it is only the basic things you need to know about Baron Samedi, if you are not a beginner or you just like to challenge yourself, read everything! I dont care about what you do, but enough talk, let's get into the basics.

Baron Samedi is one of my favorite mages to play, even if you search me up on SmiteGuru, you wont see alot of gameplay of that. But that's because I have been testing him...alot. But now is not the time for that.

Baron Samedi is a simple, but creative mage to play as he has his own consumables that his teammates can also buy that give a health and mana buff for 20 seconds.I don't want to get too in depth with his abilities, but I will at least say what all of them do. So let's start!

Vivid Gaze is an ability that fires 2 lasers in the direction you point, if you hit a God, they are affected by hysteria(which is a passive that affects all of his abilities for every hit)
Consign Spirits is an ability that is an AOE and when you hit an enemy god it heals you and people around you for every god hit in its area.
Wrap it up is an ability where baron throws a snake, if you hit an enemy god, it hurts them and applies a slow affect that ends in a stop, no stun included.
Life of the partyI'm going to make this ability description short and simple... baron summons a coffin, jumps on top of it, and sucks people into it, if a person touches the coffin, an amount of health is dealt and it applies a stun.

Here are some combos you can use with this


Wrap it up--Consign spirits--Vivid gaze OR Wrap it up--Life of the party--consign spirits--Vivid Gaze

You can mix them up in any way you want to.

How to play Baron Samedi in the Mid lane.

The mid lane is great for Baron Samedi as he has 2 lane clearing abilities. He also has his healing and passive ability. But I am going to tell you what to do, and what not to do.

What should I look out for in the mid lane?



In the mid lane, you always need to look for GANKS, as you may be the center of attention when it comes to mid lane, so have you or your teammates put wards at the entrances of the mid lane as you will get dunked on...alot. But in the mid lane, you also have your own heal ability, so try to hit any god you see, but keep in mind that you are wide open to impending doom on every side, so keep your distance and let your jungle get your red buff at the beggining of the game. If you push the lane way too hard, you might get obliterated by a gank, so be on your guard, save your mana and you should do great

This is only basic mid lane, but you are baron samedi, you have the power to heal people, so this is why there is a support build.

Baron samedi support in duo lane

Baron Samedi in support lane is just what you would think as his healing and items that go along with him makes him a great support god. If you already play guardian gods, great! You have completed the first step, now just play as you usually do. But I'm not going to be that basic... First off, you are the tank, try to be defensive and guard your teammate as you also have your heal with your ability. If your team is ahead, you must keep on your guard and save your KDA as you are at danger of jungle and mid lane coming for you. You could also do this in a solo lane build, but I wouldn't suggest it since you are going against worriors/guardians that can kick your *** in an instant in the early game.
You could be a great support if you run these types of things with Baron Samedi

Baron Samedi in the solo lane?

Yes, this is a thing if you were wondering, I am giving a big thanks to Kriega1 for suggesting this. I am not going to add a build for it, I am only going to explain what it is, so let's start with the build.Shoes of the Magi, Breastplate of Valor, Void Stone, Ethereal Staff, Spirit Robe, Gem of Isolation... in which is your basic solo build. Now playing in the solo lane is like playing support duo lane...alone. But let's go on ahead and plan out your course of action. If you build defenders blessing, pay attention to the minions and let the tower finish them off, if you want to do more damage,
build mages blessing. Now you have your plan on how to start the game. But since you are still a mage, stay far away from your enemy, you are a ranged god so please try to save yourself.

And that's all of the roles you can play with baron, I hope you find this guide amazing!

Hey! You have reached the end of this basic baron samedi guide! Please give me suggestions as I really want to add more to this guide.

For everybody down below, thank you! I wont be adding an actual build for solo lane baron, I will keep mid lane since I still see baron mid laners, but I will place it in the guide for more advanced explanation to it.

My suggestions, remove the mid lane build and instead replace with a solo lane one: Shoes of the Magi, Breastplate of Valor, Void Stone, Ethereal Staff, Spirit Robe, Gem of Isolation as a generic build. Starter item would either be Mage's Blessing or Guardian's Blessing (guardians blessing in solo means you damage minions but don't last hit them for the kill so you can build stacks of guardians blessing, meaning you rely on minion and/or tower assists).

Support build: Shoes of Focus, Lotus Crown, Genji's Guard, Gauntlet of Thebes, Spirit Robe, Gem of Isolation as a generic build.

Relic options ideally are: beads, aegis, teleport (solo), shell, heavenly wings.

Do not get thorns or meditation on Baron.

Having a mage in solo lane doesn't make sense to me as I have mostly seen guardians and worriors there, and having a mage in solo lane means that the jungler will have to focus mid and solo even more...and now that I think about it, that gives duo lane an advantage holy **** this is GENIUS

There are some very standard mages that play in Solo and have done for a long time. Aphrodite, Chang'e, Zhong Kui, Ah Puch, Hel, and Hades (and Baron more recently) are all historically common non-Warrior picks.

What? Have you never seen certain mages in solo before? Are you even aware of anything regarding what may or may not be meta, or what may or may not be viable in conquest?

Also I taking a mage to solo also typically means building them hybrid/tanky.

One missing item you could consider for protection would be Magi's Cloak. But if you're going Thoth (which is also nerfed and so makes it a bit of a hard sell), then BotD which you do list is perhaps a better, more aggressive item that still offers some survivability.

Bancroft's Talon isn't really an item you should consider, IMO, and especially shouldn't be core. He's already got healing, and you don't want to get absolutely shut down by anti-heal. You should instead be prioritizing Spear of the Magus earlier if you're going to go that route. If anything, it should be your 2nd item right after Shoes.

That said, I'd also probably prioritize other lifesteal items a lot less...no SG, no Pythag's, for example.

In Support, with his ramp-to-root, you should consider higher early pressure with Stone of Binding, which isn't listed anywhere for some reason. And his heal is too situational and only functional around enemy gods that Rod of Asclepius doesn't seem worth it to me.

And in your example Support build, here's where I think Spear of the Magus needs to be prioritized way less. Get it later in a build if you do pick it up, and make sure you get magical protection earlier.

Overall, though, this is a significantly better effort than some of your previous builds. You should offer a skill leveling direction, though.

Baron Samedi isn't viable in Mid since the last nerfs to Baron and the nerfs to Magus and Soul Reaver (which were his core items for mid keeping him barely viable there).

As for the "support" build that has no magical defense, and has not only spear of the magus but combined with gem of iso and asclepius alltogether as one is just not giving a good impression.

I agree about the nerfs to Baron and to Soul Reaver, but Magus is still as strong. Baron just doesn't abuse it as much as Merlin or Anubis.

I didn't mean the nerfs to magus made that item not relevant, im just saying the combined nerfs of Baron Mid core items and his own nerfs made his mid lane garbage.

Lukatomic (1) | May 15, 2019 4:31pm
For the first paragraph, they messed up on these nerfs but I still see him as useful, as for the support build, the no magical defence is only because there is rarely magical players going against him in the beginning, but then again, I'll see what I can do

What about the enemy support? And the enemy mid? Or if the enemy team has a different comp and is running a magical ADC?

I know Lotus Crown provides situational magical prots, but that's no excuse to forego magical defense altogheter. If you still want to be bruiser, pick Void Stone. Otherwise, píck Genji's Guard or Oni Hunter's Garb.
