He Will Protect You From Trickery - Hun Batz 5.3

March 6, 2018


Welcome to my guide for Hun Batz, the Howler Monkey

My name is Cyberhawk. I am a ranked player who primarily plays conquest. I bounce between Support, Solo, and Jungle.

This is my first smitefire guide, and I intend to update it, so feel free to comment things that should be added/edited.

Pros / Cons

Speak No Evil

  • Good burst damage
  • Good wave & camp clear
  • Excellent mobility
  • Outstanding Team-fight ultimate
    Fear No Evil
  • Very sticky, good chase
  • Always relevant, even if just to annoy
  • Squishy without defensive items
  • Very vulnerable to cripples and stuns
  • Will rarely 100-0 people
  • Only CC is his ult
  • Very hard to build with the current items


Do No Evil



- Normal Gank -
Sacred Monkey or Blink -> Fear No Evil -> Basic -> Overhand Smash -> Basic -> Somersault -> basics.

- No-Ult Gank -
Overhand Smash -> 2xBasic -> Somersault -> 2xBasic -> Sacred Monkey -> Basic -> Overhand Smash

- Team-fight -
Blink -> Fear No Evil -> Basic -> Overhand Smash -> Somersault AWAY -> wait for a runner -> Sacred Monkey -> Basic -> Overhand Smash.

The main things to practice with Hun Batz are:

The placement of your Fear No Evil
Weaving a basic between every ability
When to use Somersault vs Sacred Monkey
Sacred Monkey teleporting you to the NEXT target hit


Buy No Evil


Assassin's Blessing Needs no explanation. Hun Batz is a jungler, and has bad clear until he gets an item or 2. This is a starter item for 100% of your Conquest matches as him.


Jungle Relics

Core Items
Item 1
As with most junglers, Hun Batz is likely building Warrior Tabi. These should be your first item, always. Preferred over Talaria Boots because of his high scaling and existing mobility, but Batz can build those instead if desired for the faster rotations and mp5.

Item 2
Hydra's Lament is a match made in heaven with Infused Strikes, as well as the CDR that Hun Batz loves, and its super cheap. You should finish evolving your blessing at about the time you build this, and this is where you start to hurt.

Item 4
Hun Batz really only needs 1 crit item to be effective (with a passive 30% crit chance). Deathbringer gives you some more immediate burst and consistency, and has excellent synergy with Hydra's Lament. It actually does more damage than Malice, assuming you have built Hydra's. This should be built 4th, since while Hun Batz really doesn't come online until he has this item, the expense and other needed stats push it back.

After you build Boots and Hydra's, you have three item slots to fill. Your stats to look out for are: Penetration, CDR (roughly 30% total), Defense, and possibly Movement Speed.

This is where Hun Batz runs into issues. With only 3 item slots left, it is hard to grab everything you want, so pick 3 from:

    Relic Dagger
    30% CDR
    2 penetration items
    A decent amount of health and armor

Relic dagger isn't quite tanky enough, Void Shield is a bit too expensive for what it does, and CDR is rare on hybrid items. Which one of these 4 you sacrifice is up to you, all are equally viable.

Note: There are a lot of items listed here, and as we get further into the season some may be found to not be as viable as they are on paper. I listed all items that might work on Batz, but I will trim this section down as I can.

Too many Options

Beware the Jungle (Damage)

Protection from Trickery (Defense)


Plan No Evil

Early Game

Mid Game

Late Game


Hun Batz is a great jungler, tons of fun to play, and will leave you laughing like a madman as you bonuce, leap, teleport, and monkey all around the enemy team.
Hopefully this guide gets some more people to play the god that in my opinion is one of the best and most fun Assassins in the game!

Special thanks to Zibly and his awesome Template!
