Hello there fellow SMITE players,

I am making this guide, because I wanted to share the build I carry with as Kali. Why the name Jungle "ADHD" Kali ? Well we are going to be building a Kali with an amazing amount of attack speed and the ability to run around her enemies like a crazy person.

About me:
I am a pretty experienced SMITE player that goes by the in-game name: RandomApple. I have been playing since the closed beta and I want to share my knowledge with you guys.

Pros / Cons

1. Pros and Cons:

- Natural lifesteal
- Natural penetration
- Target benefits (Passive)
- Hard CC

- Weak early game
- Weak basic attacks
- She's blue

Kali's abilities

2. Kali's abilities:

Marked for Death (Passive):
With your passive you can get extremely low on health, if you know you are going to kill your target as you will heal back up. Combine this with your ultimate and you have a great potential to face several gods.

Nimble Strike:
Can be used as an initiation, but keep in mind that once you have used this ability Kali has no way to escape. That is why I suggest you try to keep this ability to save yourself.

This ability will be your main source of damage besides your basic attacks. You should use this to clear the jungle camps and harass gods.

As you will be building hastened fatalis I suggest you keep this to help your allies to be able to put down damage.

Only use your ult when you are about to die. Using it when going into the fight is a waste.


3. Build:

Bumba's Mask:

- This will keep your mana and health at a decent level. It also makes sure that you get the full amount of xp and gold from the jungle camps, even if your allies are around. Sell Bumba's Mask when you need 533 gold or less for a next item that will give you better stats then Bumba's Mask gives you.

Warrior Tabi:

- Kali relies on her basic attacks, so getting Warrior Tabi is the most benificial for her.

Qin's Sais:

- This item works extremely well with Kali her hit sequence. It will increase her dps by a lot.

Hastened Fatalis:

- Since we got that Qin's Sais and we know that Kali relies on her basic attacks, we want to make sure that you can actually hit these basic attacks. That is why we are getting Hastened Fatalis so we can stick to the enemy like glue.


- We are going for Rage as we want more attack speed, but we also need some critical chance.

Draining Blade / Asi:
- By now your Kali should have good damage. Now to carry your team, you will have to stay alive. Draining Blade will help you do this. It not only gives you the lifesteal you need, but it also gives you more attack speed and damage (Penetration). Get Draining Blade first and only get Asi after you have finished the rest of your build. It is not worth it to get asi straight away for that amount of gold


- We have got the attack speed and sustain down. Now it is time to get the real damage going. Deathbringer will do this for us as it will increase the critical strike damage by 50% and increase the critical chance.


4. Conclusion:

Using the passives of Qin's Sais, Rage and Deathbringer combined with the amazing amount of attack speed that we have built, you can be very swift while putting down a lot of damage on your enemies. This makes it harder for the enemies to hit you and easier for you to stay alive.

Good luck carrying your matches and feedback would be very much appreciated.

I went 18-1 following this guide, mostly. To improve the guide, talk about actives you purchase, gameplay, and perhaps jungle routes etc.

No problem ^^

Ah I had forgotten about that. Pardon me :3

It's an OK guide. Nothing special about it, nothing I really liked too much. 3/10, so I'll have to downvote. Please pm me if you update your guide.

After the next update (wednesday 28) the Rage won't be giving you any attack speed anymore. Just something to keep in mind. Oh and some gameplay (where to start, which buff is better orange or red) would be great too
RandomApple | May 26, 2014 6:01am
Thank you for your comment and I will definitely be trying this out. I will still stick with the Hastened Fatalis before Rage though. It just helps me gank and actually get the kill instead of the enemy getting away, but I guess that is just my personal preference.
Bazzerator (3) | May 26, 2014 4:11am
I used to do the same build with you BUT I decided that taking Hastened Fatalis after Rage is working better. The extra damage will be more helpful in both early ganks and jungle clear.

Also forget Asi. The attack speed will already be sky-rocket and the Qin's Sais will be taking out your opponents in seconds. What you really need in this case is Bloodforge. Not only it will heal you better, but you will be able to wreck your enemies even faster!
