How to Jungle Loki

First off you should learn how to jungle with any jungler then you can start worrying about jungling Loki. To start off with loki jungle you need to start at speed buff because you dont have much a base speed and neither morning star nor assassins blessing give you movement speed so you need it. Also as loki you can invade if your a single level behind because you can always escape with ult or 1. so from speed buff I like to hit xp harpies(side camp then middle camp) then i like to gank middle if its open. following up from that I switch sides and sit on the dual lane side for a few minutes and clear those buffs. By then you should have your speed buff up again and from there you just repeat. You also need to remember there is another jungler depending on who it is and how much they got you can out "box" them. Just be cautious about your level positioning and enemy positioning. Also if you want to be a real jerk gank dual lane after you get speed buff.

Team Fights

In team fight loki can be usefull he just has to be played well. There are several ways to go about playing loki in a team fight such as saving your one to escape ulting the mage(if not the "squishiest" person) basic attacking then using your 3 then basic attacking again to finish him. after that use your 1 to escape then wait for your 1&3 to get off of cooldown(Thats why you built cdr) then go back and start poking. You could also engage with your 1(although a little more risky) and do it that way.

How a game should look (This is in minutes not levels)

1-5: YOU SHOULD always grab your speed buff first followed by the near xp camp then go to the middle xp camp and possibly gank middle lane or help clear middle lane then follow the route lower in the description.(just follow the how to jungle section)

6-10:Now you should have your ult and can start ganking solo lane and middle lane and can switch to the mid game route made for rotation.

11-20:Team fighting should start around here give or take a few minutes now you need to utilize your abillitys and be highly aware of everything. You are going to be able to change a team fight instantly so be careful. Follow the team fight section to learn more

21-Whenever the game ends:There is alot of team fighting and split pushing in this section so look at the team fight or the How to jungle parts to learn more.

That pretty much sums it all up for the game you can change it if you wish this is just if its a good game.

Total Overview/Closer

OK How to basically do loki in a couple of paragraphs. First Practice as with any god you need practice, Second you need to read other guides im not the only source availible, Third Have fun. Ok to start with loki you need to buy him (there is no point in not) Then you need to join a conquest and call jungle. wait for the game to load and then buy the starting kit(as seen above). After that you must move to your speed buff. Once you have taken the speed buff Hit up some camps and if your a Higher level than the other jungler try to invade. If the invade is succesfull spam VEW. Following that Attack Middle lane and mess up the other mage. Rinse and repeat from there. Now ill tell you what to do when 1v1 the other jungler. First i want you to know your Jungler. Are they aa based or ability? Do they have there ult ready or no. Do they have any ccs? Do they have an escape? These are all important questions that must be asked. Because loki is an aa god he cant do anything without his Auto Attacks. So if the Opposing Jungler is lets say camazots be careful because if he hits you he can see you while cloaked and he cam easilly attack you. Next know your team you need to know your team before you pick loki because he doesnt have much cc so pick wisely.

Here is a good loki guide I Recommend: https://www.smitefire.com/smite/guide/loki-the-backstabbing-bastard-s5-all-modes-patch-5-1-9305

Fix the rainbow text at the end of the guide please.

I wouldn't recommend Soul Eater on Loki. Literally no point in getting it when Transcendence exists. Loki excels in quickly bursting squishy gods like the mage or adc, not in extended teamfights. Otherwise, the build is fine. Also no point of Heavenly Wings on Loki when Vanish gives slow immunity.

And the levelling order isn't terrible, but it can be improved. Check the one from this guide: https://www.smitefire.com/smite/guide/the-lowkey-god-4815 (build 2 - jungle)

I know, right? It's such an eyesore when colors just mash together like that.

Especially with the variety of colors easily accessible through BBCode.

Just a quick FYI, Soul Eater is an interesting item now that it's gone through multiple changes and now provides very nice power...but I think you've overlooked that you've overcapped CDR on your Build 1 by 10%, through Trans (10%), Hydra's (10%), Jotunn's (20%), and Soul (10%).

Soooo...not sure if anyone would agree with me here, but I thought of something that might have some appeal to you.

At level 20 without Transcendence, Loki has a base of 910 mana. Add Jotunn's Wrath onto that and you get 1,060. Although not a huge amount, it's probably sufficient for standard runs outside of base. You also get some MP5 from Hydra's Lament.

So you see where I'm going here? Late-game, after getting your full build, you might consider replacing Transcendence. Sure, you'll lose some power, but your power through the rest of the items is pretty good already, and the other aspect of its benefit, the huge mana pool, isn't needed quite as much late-game unless you're out for an extended time (and you can sort of offset this by getting the mana buff or Chalice of Mana if you want).

This opens up possibilities for inserting Bloodforge, The Crusher, or Soul Eater into the build. Yes, I know SE needs stacks, but since you get it from anything, clearing some waves and camps here and there will get you maxed pretty quickly. And any of these items will give you some added utility you won't get from Trans.

Anyway, just a thought.
