Warrior Tabi is bought if you want more physical power early game. While Ninja Tabi is bought if you want more attack speed. This should be based on your playstyle
Personally, I always go for Ninja Tabi because you will be getting more physical power in the late game anyway and Chernobog gets very high attack speed from his Vicious Barrage ability.
Transcendence: Mainly used on ability-based hunters because of the huge mana that this item provides. Making you stay in-lane longer. On top of that, it provides 98 physical power once evolved.
Devourer's Gauntlet: provides great early sustain because of the lifesteal and therefore is no need of buying another lifesteal item such as Bloodforge
Personally, I like to "spam" Chernobog's Crystallized Curses & Vicious Barrage constantly. If you prefer more basic attacks, then opt for Devourer's Gauntlet.
Again all based on playstyle.
So there is only 1 physical lifesteal item left and that is Soul Eater. This item is quite controversial, especially on hunters.
Soul Eater has very nice stats but personally I have a hard time to fit the item into my build. Soul Eater requires a lot of ability usage but Chernobog is not 100% ability based.
just things to think about before going the Soul Eater route.
Rage: can be substituted in for Poisoned Star or Wind Demon. However, does need to be stacked for optimal effect.
Brawler's Beat Stick: Great item for physical gods to counter healing. However since you are ADC you should be building The Executioner for more damage while support, solo, or jungler build anti-heal.
Jotunn's Wrath: Great item when the enemy comp is tanky, however, Qin's Sais is more optimal. Plus the jungler is likely to build Jotunn's Wrath already.
Ichaival: Great mid-game item if more attack speed is desired and is very cost efficient. NOTE: sell the item for Odysseus' Bow late game
Tap each threat level to view Chernobog’s threats
What's going on ladies and gentlemen, my name is Tokarev and I love playing SMITE mainly on the XBOX ( I know right? what a noob :D) however, I do dabble on the PC from time to time. This is officially my first guide, that I plan to maintain over time.
So who is Chernobog? He is an ADC hunter who relies on attack speed and ability damage. So if you're having a tough time landing your autos then Chernobog or any other ADC isn't for you.
NOTE: I have also seen Chernobog being used in mid-lane by some pro-SMITE players in the most recent lan, so that might be becoming a thing...
- Great wave clear with Crystallized Curses
- Provides AOE damage from Heart of Cold passive making it easy to stack items
- Slippery due to his escapes
- Living Nightmare is one of the best ultimates in the game
- Mana thirsty early game (Don't spam abilities)
- must land combos
- Living Nightmare can backfire if not used properly
