Introduction

Welcome to my guide to Sobek, God of the Nile!



Before we start, I would like to mention that this guide participated in the Smitefire Season 4 Guide Contest and WON!

This is my second Smitefire guide, and I would appreciate feedback, as I'm constantly updating it. Feel free to comment - it helps greatly.


Regardless, let's move on to Captain Hook's terror, Sobek!

Combos

Sobek is not a god that follows a combo like Nox or Athena. His abilities can be used in any order:

Usual Combo

> >

Initiate with Charge Prey, then turn around and use Tail Whip behind your enemy to not only deal damage but also to get them out of position. Then, use Sickening Strike to deal damage, heal you and debuff the enemy. Use it for killing isolated enemies.
Further Information

The Easy Pluck

> >

Use Tail Whip to put your enemy out of position, and set up for an easy pluck. Then, use Sickening Strike to deal more damage, heal you and debuff the enemy. Use it rather than the Usual Combo if you fear missing Charge Prey.
Further Information

Ultimate Combo

> > >

It's the same as the Usual combo, but you use your ultimate in the end. Use it rather than the other combos if you want to prevent the enemy from escaping with your AoE slow. This combo works really well with Horrific Emblem.

Conclusion

Sobek is a powerful guardian that has to be played carefully. He should be built with health, mana, protections and penetration. I hope that I achieved what I wanted with this guide. Goodbye and so long!
