Baron Samedi, The god of life and death...
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.
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!
Baron shares a new potion that gives both health and mana. As baron hits his enemies, a certain percentage of hysteria gets applied to that enemy. At max hysteria,
baron does 20% more damage.
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.
The mid lane is great for Baron Samedi as he has 2 lane clearing abilities. He also has his healing and passive ability. So let's get started!
What should I look out for in the mid lane?
In the mid lane, you always need to look for ganks, as any normal mid laner, and try to save at least one ability and/or 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 consign spirits to heal yourself, so if you get ganked, run and use the ability on yourself as you are running as you can get a chance of a speed boost and your heal will help you in any situation. Try to hit someone with it if you are in trouble and you need to keep in mind that you are wide open to impending doom on every side, so keep your distance from the enemy tower if you need a quick escape to ensure your survival. If you push the lane way too hard, you might get obliterated by a gank, so be on your guard, save your mana and your abilities.
As of August 16th, 2019, This build was changed to have mid to late game lifesteal and power since [shamans ring] was buffed to all hell and is much more powerful to go against a team fight. This build was designed for early game mana and penetration. As for the the mana boots, you can switch them to the penetration boots if against certain gods.
Baron Samedi in the support lane. As of August 26, 2019, this build was re configured and tested to it's full capability. To be honest playing baron samedi in the support lane is one of the most fun ways of playing him. So let's get to an explanation.
Why baron samedi in the support? Because of his abilities, that's why! By using consign spirits you can save your teamates life in some of the most painful duo lane pushes. I have been saving my teamates in alot of instances and this also goes along with the build to ensure your teamates survivability.
The build for this goes for health and a tank-like form to ensure that your teamates are safe in team fights and helping your carry survive.
With the addition of Baron Samedi Stellar Demise, comes the full SOLO BUILD AND GUIDE! So let's start!
-Going against a physical-
When going against a physical with Baron Samedi, you must keep your distance from your opponent as for example-Bellona,Achilles, and Hercules, can and WILL bully you into the next dimension. You also have your Consign Spirits, which gives you a heal and a speed boost. So use it wisely! Also, while going against any physical, you can also avoid your opponent until you have help from your jungle, or when you actually need to hurt him/her.
-Going against Magical-
This part of being baron samedi solo is MUCH easier than going against a physical since you have speed when using Consign Spirits, so it's easier to escape your opponent.
Also, once you buy Genjis Guard, you will barely take any damage from most guardian solo players and some mage solo players. For example, if you go against a jormungundr, he will do almost no damage with his basic attack, and almost decent damage with his abilities.
So that's all I can talk about for now! I am still practicing Baron Samedi in solo. If you have any suggestions, please comment them!
