Welcome to my Bellona build and guide this guide will go through explaining the items and their purpose, her abilities, and her own pros and cons. I finally reached Rank X with her and i have to say I'm happy. It took a lot longer that I expected to be, but still I'm happy that my favorite Goddess in SMITE is rank X. So I hope you like this guide, and I'll see you guys later.

Abilities





Passive - Master of War

An buff that gives you Protections and Movement Speed. This makes Bellona so annoying as hell. This buff gives Bellona extra protections and movement speed allowing her to catch up to her prey and allow to box. So don't be afraid to attack people you probably could survive and win the fight with her annoying passive.

Ability 1 - Shield Bash

A cone attack that deals damage and applies a slow. This ability is actually two types is a dash and a cone. This is usually your starter going into fights allowing you to deal initial damage and a slow that allows to be followed up. This move also have a other function. For a 30% chance you get to block damage allowing to not take damage from incoming basic attacks this does not work for abilities so be careful of that.

Ability 2 - Bludgeon

An area attack that damages multiple enemies. Bellona's main ability this where all the damage comes from. First this hits all enemies in a area building up damage in the slam damage. The slam where all the damage is from every enemy god hit you build up bonus damage that applies to your slam allowing you to do massive damage. But this move could get countered by any CC so especially be careful of Anubis's Mummify is the ultimate counter against Bludgeon.

Ability 3 - Scourge

An line attack that deals damage and disarm enemies. This a interesting move for Bellona being how much utility it has. The first part what makes it great it's disarm. This CC effect prevents enemy gods to use any basic attacks for a short duration. allowing you to get a advantage on gods that are more basic attack based, like Loki, and Kali. The second part that every third successful basic attack hit gives you healing. This heals if not that much but this is great for sustaining your health for clearing minion waves. The last utility part is you get extra range. This what makes this ability unique. This buff gives you extra 4' of range giving you a longer distance poke than other melee gods, allowing you to control a melee fight with ease. This ability works well if you have Hastened Fatalis.

Ability 4 - Eagle's Rally

An leap attack that applies damage and gives buffs to teammates. This move is a killer and i'm not joking it is. This move what makes Bellona the biggest threat ever for warriors. The reasons why are it's damage, stun, and it's cooldown. The stuns is not that long for usual stuns but it is a great setup to all of your other abilities. While the buffs are not usually used by the move is still a great add on to kill enemies in that radius. And it's cooldown if you get Breastplate of Valor and Jotunn's Wrath the cooldown of this ability is 30 seconds. So mostly every time and enemy sees you expect a flag landing on their head. So if you combine others moves with this you are determined to confirm a kill.

Item Explanation


Warrior Tabi
Grants the player extra movement speed and power.

Always get this item first no matter what build your using.

This item is one of the important and core items for all warriors. This would be no excuse for why you should build this on Bellona. Giving extra movement speed being the most important key stat in the game and the 40 extra power really helps early with her strength in early game.

Jotunn's Wrath
This item grants the player extra power, mana, pen, and CDR.

Get this as a second or 3rd item if you want be more aggressive for defensive early.

This a core item for Bellona for the mana that a course always needed for warriors especially mana consumption is high on warriors. The extra pen helps early game if the enemy are rushing defense early allowing you to do reasonable amount of damage. The extra power is also nice allowing to do more scaling on your abilities also helps with your Bludgeon early game that allows you to lane clear easier. The extra CDR also helps you to pull off more abilities so boxing situations you have the advantage to able to activate abilities quicker than the enemy.

Breastplate of Valor
This item grants the player extra physical protections, mana and CDR

Try to build as your 2nd or 3rd item.

The most common item for all warriors so is makes sense why to pick it up. The insane amount of protections is crazy for Early game giving you 75 is just insane. 300 mana that's equivalent to a warlock's sash. And the nerf on the CDR actually made it better able to build Jotunn's Wrath and Breastplate of Valor together is insane. So I really recommend that you pick up this item. This item makes you scary in early game boxing.

Titan's Bane
This item grants the player extra power, and physical penetration.

Obtain this item last or 5th determining the cost of your build late game.

As said in my Ra guide this is the physical version of Obsidian Shard. This gives you extra power and a protection penetration determining how much protections they have and reduce it by 33%. This item is great just to have the last bit of power and pen. This is a last hurrah for Warriors.

Bulwark of Hope
This item grants the player extra health, CCR, and magical protection.

Determines what opponent you are facing magical then build this second, if physical then your 5th or 6th item.

The most common and most helpful magical protection item in the game. First the CCR makes CC based gods less effective against you allowing taking multiple second CC durations and makes the CC less effective. The extra health is always nice if you have different health items as well giving you extra health to tank with.. The magical protection is nice to counter high damage magical gods like He Bo, and Scylla. Also the health shield is useful if you are trying to box or escape.

Brawler's Beat Stick
This item grants the player extra power and penetration.

Build this as your first pen item if you are facing against a healer.

This is the devil to healers in the game. This items destroys their armor and reduce all their healing by 40% that's insane amount especially for early - mid game. This item works best if you have CDR allowing to constantly refreshing the duration of the item's passive. I prefer spirit robe after this item to give you some CDR to help makes this item better in early game.
Magi's Blessing
Magi's Blessing
This item grants the player extra health, and protections.

Build this as your second defense item if facing a physical.

This item could be a lifesaver when you get hit by a hard CC when your Purification Beads are down. This item barely gives you protections but all the health they give overcomes it. The passive is good for like 99% of all the solo lane gods due having at least one hard CC. You absorb one hard CC; for example if Ares uses No Escape you will not get pulled and stunned and you'll be CC immune for a short duration. This item is good as a back-up if your Purification Beads are down.

Hide of the Urchin
This item grants the player extra health, mana, and protections.

Build this as your first defense item if facing a magical or a healing magical.

Hide of the Urchin is used if you want to be a aggressive tank getting kill or assists grants you extra protections. This does have good stats that does help Bellona being more formidable. The protections on both sides helps you early game when you being attacked by a magical and a physical. The extra health and mana early game really solves your 2 big issues that she has in early game. You still have to be careful though that you are going to be a aggressive tank going for kills. Don't underestimate your opponent you might get punished if you go in too hard.

Qin's Sais
This item grants the player extra power and attackspeed.

Build this as your 4th or 5th item.

Now you're probably wondering why I'm picking up this item for Bellona well it's simple, she relies on this item. Well why does she needs this item so badly, well almost her entire kit relies on it. Her passive needs it to get the 5 stacks quickly, her sheield bash needs it to get block stacks more quickly allowing to block more damage, Bludgeon needs it to clear waves and camps much quicker, and Scourge needs it to get heals more quickly. The bonus AA damage is also nice if boxing a enemy. Bellona really needs this item to thrive in the solo lane.

Pestilence
This item grants the player extra health and magical protection.

Build this as your 2nd defense item in the healing magical build.

Pestilence is the kyrptonite of all healers in SMITE. With all the major healers got nerfed with their healing this item is now even more rewarding for the people that pick it up. This item corresponds really well with Brawler's Beat Stick. You could also get Horrific Emblem if you want slows as well to really punish them. But they probably could counter it with Purification Beads or Heavenly Wings.

Runeforged Hammer
This item grants the player extra health and physical power.

Build this as your 4th or 5th item in the joust build.

Wondering why Runeforged Hammer than Frostbound Hammer well here's the answer.
Her kit is almost all CC. Shield Bash applies a slow, Scourge applies a disarm, and Eagle's Rally applies a stun. Why build this in Joust than CQ well most of the game you would be by yourself so the item is useless. If building it in Joust almost the entire game you would be in a team-fight so this item excels. Let's explain the item now. Every time you apply a CC affect on a enemy the enemies receive 15% bonus damage from all sources. So in team-fights this item destroys due to your allies being right next to you. This is why this item is worth picking up in Joust rather than CQ.

Mantle of Discord
This item grants the player extra magical and physical protections, and CDR.

Build this as your optional secondary defense item in all builds.

Let's just say this item is amazing on Bellona. The extra protections maker her more annoying in fights, and the CDR helps her ability efficiency. The passive what makes this item a worth of a buy for Bellona. When you hit a certain HP threshold
you send out a shock wave similar to HoG. This stuns your opponent and your CC immune for a short duration allowing you to run when situations get rough. Be careful though this item has a large cooldown so when this is down be more cautious.

Final Words

Here is my Season 4 upadte for Bellona covering the Solo Lane and Joust showing the items making you a utter monster that trying to kill you is possible but it will be really hard though. Bellona is more ability focused god frequently using her kit to take advantage of the map to claim victory for you team. So if you support your team in fights and try to be a annoying little thing you will claim victory match after match. So I hope you guys like this guide and I'll see you guys later.

This build is overcap for CDR just a heads up. I ran it with success, but could drop jotanns for something else without CDR

Thanks for bringing that up. I know that one of the build over-capped I just didn't had the chance to fix the builds for current meta yet. I'll do a update to this guide tomorrow.

Are you referring to the "The Pain is Real (Joust)" Build? I personally would drop Mantle of Discord before I dropped Jotunn's Wrath.

overld1 (17) | October 23, 2017 1:56pm
I agree I'll keep Jotunn's Wrath than over Mantle of Discord due to the extra mana and CDR helps with her kit. Good other choices are probably Bulwark of Hope and Hide of the Urchin are good replacements for Mantle of Discord. Is just determines if you want more CCR or more protections.

I had to do something about Bellona having no updated guides. So I stood up on the plate and decided I'm going to complete this guide. Couldn't do much work atm due to the internet where I am is not that great so I'll do more work on this guide in the future.

Can you add in a build for assault? I've seen too many Bellonas lose that mode because of their play-style and build. Thanks.

Branmuffin17 (277) | September 29, 2017 9:49pm
Assault is very dependent on your team and the enemy team comp. Starts are the most important.

4+ phys enemies? Sovereignty should be picked up by the main tank (which might be you, might not be). If there are two tanks, the other can get Jade Emperor's Crown.

4+ magical enemies? Heartward Amulet for the main tank. If there are 2 tanks, the other can get Pest against healers, or a Guardian can pick up Void Stone if there are mages on your team, etc., etc.

Balanced enemies? Is there good clear on your team and no healer? Get Watcher's Gift + Stone of Gaia, let teammates clear, and there, you have your crazy sustain. You might still consider Sov if there's no healer, for the HP5 it gives teammates.

But for Bell, I'd basically just build full tanky, with maybe just Brawler's Beat Stick if it fits the situation. CDR, protections, health.

I just wanted to note that there's no need to describe what the abilities do, As we can see it with the icons, also, if your going to make a skills section, use it to provide some tips although Bellona dosent need tips because i dont wanna say it I ****ING HATE HER since just giving the ability description is pretty useless.

Thank you for the comment I will try to adjust my build to make it more suitable.

Wildstorms414 | November 7, 2015 3:29am
I don't think that is a reliable build , Bellona is an Auto Attack , poke damage goddess not burst damage. I would say go:

For solo lane -
Warrior Tabi : Mystical Mail : FrostBound : Runeforge/Mail of renewal : Stone of Gaia : Executioner

For support -
Warrior Tabi : Sovereignty : FrostBound : Heartward Amulet : Midgardian mail/Mail of renwal : Executioner

As a solo lanner you want to build in a way that counters the enemy team and as a support you want to build in a way that supports your team.
