Bellona is a heavy sustain, high damage dealing warrior who has the best early game in smite. Her level 1 has a built in CC, damage, and heal all in one ability. Plus the range extender it provides helps your heavy hammer passive immensely. Bellona easily have enough power, and sustain to have your whole team screaming roma invicta!
You want to be staring off with heavy hammer so that you can have the early aggression that you need as bellona. Early control is very important as Bellona.
Next, your core items heavily consist of attack speed items because this will help your clear, sustain, and damage. High attack speed is key for bellona which is why I listed these as her core items. The penetration from Ichaival will also help you shred through tanks and squishies alike. The little lifesteal from Asi is also a nice touch.
Normally, Bellona doesn't have to be building defensive items because she has too much sustain ,but if for some reason you are behind then witchblade helps you counter warriors and hunters. Also, Bellona suffers heavily from CC so the Spirit robe and Magi's blessing are great additions to her build.
Finally, her aggresive items. The crit items are for demolishing squishies and just generally pumping out more damage. Jotunn's wrath, you mainly build for the cooldown. The mana and penetration from Jotunn's wrath are nice, however with max level ultimate and Jotunn's wrath, your cooldown on your escape is 30s. Executioner is great pen against tanks and of course more attack speed. Hastened Fatalis is just for the lolz and of course more attack speed.
The skills are a bit confusing at first glance so let me explain. At level 2, you get shield bash so that you can box anyone early game. At level 4, you actually level skip so you can get level 3 Scrouge and your ultimate. Your Bludgeon is not, I repeat, NOT useful for anything early game. However, later in the game your hammer is MASSIVE damage in team fights. You max your 3 first for the longer CC and higher heal rate you have. Then, you max your 2 in which case you should be going into more team fights and destroying the enemy team. finally, you max your 1 last because leveling it provides nothing more than higher damage. Also, the one mistake that I see many Bellona players making is that they stay in their hammer form. Staying in your hammer form does nothing for you. It lowers your attack speed and gives you an AoE attack... That's it. Having your sword and shield up gives you block stacks so that auto attacks do no damage to you and being in your scourge form heals you. So use your 2 for the damage then Immediately switch to either your 1st or 3rd form.
