Hey there guys, Ye Haw here, just a casual SMITE player. Thought I'd share these builds with you, they are my favorites to play with Thanatos in the Jungle, though you can use it anywhere. It's my first guide so I don't really know what exactly to do, but just take these builds and have fun I guess. I'll try to explain each build best I can.
This build is a Auto Attack Build for Thanatos. This may come to a surprise for you since Thanatos is known to be a Ability based God. If you're a new player I suggest you go ahead and skip this build, because it may be a bit difficult to play with.
First we have Hastened Katana. This item is to help you stick to the enemy God and keep hitting them with the crits. The movement and attack speed it provides is also helpful.
Ninja Tabi is in this build instead of Warrior Tabi because of again, the attack speed. It helps you to hit faster and harder and coupled with Hastened Katana and Wind Demon it makes a devastating impact.
Deathbringer makes your crits hit a lot harder, and with Wind Demon you have a 40% crit chance. Add in all the attack speed this build provides and you're hitting a lot of crits.
Hide of the Urchin is here to make you love longer. Nothing else to say really.
I've been talking about Wind Demon a lot, and this is because of its passive mainly. In a fight, if you manage to get 2-3 crits off, and the enemy God is still so.ehow alive, you'll be hitting really fast at this point.
Jotunn's Wrath provides the much needed pen and cool down.
If the game goes long enough and you decide to buy a Elixir of Speed and The Crusher you'll be getting the extra pen and attack speed.
Again this build is not something I'd recommend for ranked games, it's just something I use for fun in casual conquest, which is what I mainly play. I wouldn't recommend this to new Than players either as it requires some skill and the inner workings of the god. But by all means, go ahead and try it out if you wish.
Here we get into the more common and more used items on Thanatos. This is a build I use if I ever end up playing Thanatos in jungle in ranked.
Jotunn's Wrath, Warrior Tabi, and The Crusher are all common items used on Thanatos. These items provide pen, cool down (which helps Than greatly) and the power.
Heartseeker is something that is similar to The Crusher, where it does extra damage to the enemy God if a ability is used, though I find Heartseeker to be more effective. I would recommend stacking Heartseeker before initiating a fight.
Gladiator's Shield isn't something that is commonly built on Than, though I find it to be effective. Coupled with his Death Scythe it can heal you for quite a bit. It also provides some nice protections.
Again, Ancile isn't a common item for Thanatos, but I find that it balances his protections nicely while providing a good amount of power. The passive is a added benefit.
If you get late into the game and decide to buy a Elixir of Speed, getting a Bloodforge to replace Warrior Tabi is something I find to be the best. It provides a massive amount of power and the passive also helps with diving someone.
In the end, I like to believe this is the best build to use for beginners and is the most commonly used items on Thanatos, with the exception of a few of them.
This is another build I use for fun, again I don't recommend this one to beginners either but you can use it if you want. This build provides a ridiculous amount of movement not including Than's Scent of Death and it's passive. I won't go into the details of each item, but I will give a warning, you should be really careful and choose your fights. Bumba's Mask, though providing a lot of movement speed, makes you take a lot more damage as well.
Well that's all for me I guess. I've given you three build to use in the jungle, though once again they can be used anywhere and not only in jungle. I would recommend the second build to new Thanatos users and new SMITE players. The first and third builds are basically troll builds, something that the enemy team wouldn't expect, well more so for the first build. This can help with getting kills, but I'm not sure how well it would work in Ranked as I haven't tried them out yet there. That's it I guess. Have fun and go ea-reap some souls!
