Me as Kukulkan + Intro

Since the day I created this account and today's Kukulkan was known as Ao Kuang (No not the weird one that playing with swords) But if you see the "new" ao kuang's ult you'll see what i'm talking about (the Visual dragon there).
I know that you're going to read the same thing couple of chapters down here but I wanted to tell you why I chose this name but this "Unique" build :
Every time I played a costume game (3vs3 Joust or 5vs5 Conquest) When I used the ult and they *Had* around 75% health - they screamed "NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE" and died with cursing me :)
Imagine this picture - Soul Reaver item eff+ the pen from Obsidian Shard + your Magical Power + Kukulkan's Ult = Instant. (words of my friends & enemies, not me.)

So if you're still thinking about "Eww Kukulkan", "Quit Smite" , "Uninstall Noob" and etc
Take a min to think about those poor people that I killed with this Ult or just the skills this AMAZING God can offer you.

So enjoy my build and opinions.

The Active (relics) for This Build

The Relics for thid Build: (Well .. the Relics I choose every match to make this build kicking- ***)
1. Meditation - Kukulkan skills using tons of mana at early game so you should get it as your first relic.
2. Sprint/Sanctuary - You choose relic depends how far your team/ How good you're doing at this game. If you need to push more the towers with the team or need to get fast inside&outside teamfight so pick Sprint.
And if your team retreat-pushed to the team's phoenix so you need to choose sanctuary just to be more careful because if you choose spring at this situation you can die and lose the match beause you can't avoid/block/I don't remmeber the word for it and refill life+mana and get back to the match before the match ends.

Things You Should Know About This Build

Theres no need for cdr because after the 3rd item you should be able to rekt everything around mid lane and starting the late game buildYou should notice that I chose "Soul Reaver" before "Book of Thoth" because Soul Reaver passive can make agressive damage at early mid game and cause a great injury to the enemies especially when you hit with the tornado with the passive of this item + Kukulkan's passive + The amount of mana that you get from Soul Reaver will give you a great boost to your damage

Why im not using "Polynomicon"

There is couple of reasons why im not adding "Polynomicon" into my build:
1. The lifesteal - waste. why? Kukulkan will NEVER put a good use of it unlike other mages like Isis, Sometimes Freya, Scylla and more "Based" lifesteal Gods in the game.
2. The passive of this item - Worthless. if you'll play smart with this build so you don't need +75% Magical power as addional damage to your basic attack.
2 b. If you still think this passive is good so do the next steps:
A - Open Jungle Practice
B - Check this full build and follow it completely until the last item in the build
C - Don't take any buff or pot but stack all of your items "Booth of Thoth and "Warlock's Sash".
D - Use this combo against the Fire giant - 3+2+1+4 (The 2 is for not taking hit from the fire giant while giving him a **** load/Huge amout of damage
E - Come back to me with a comment.

3. Even if you stick with this opinion, instead of which item you will put it?
Every single item in the build has a reason to be there and not just because I "wanted it to be there". :)
4. "Polynomicon" offers you 300 mana but if you follow the build you see that there's no need because the items "Soul Reaver" and "Warlock's Sash" are a better replacement with (I think) a better Passive that should work better with Kukulkan's Passive and him overall.

Why I chose this Build

Well... I created this build on my own around (I guess) the end of Season 1 of Smite and I think this build is pretty awesome since the fact people see Kukulkan as a bad chooice for mid lane at the current with those "health/tanky/idk" meta and every time I got the option to pick him on Regular or Ranked match I Censored.

Even on matched when you have 1 afk on your team, don't worry, I managed to hold 5 people pushing my tower alone and made them to run away and recall or whatever they decided after they took high amount of damage. :)

Questions & Answers About this build.

Q: Buy cdr!
A: nope. You're strong enough to kill everything so fast that you won't notice how much time left for the next ability because the enemy is already dead.
Q: You're not too slow?
A: With Spring + 2nd skill of Kukulkan (I don't remember the skill name) you've 530 movement speed for like 5-6 secs that are more than enough to go back to your tower/push the enemies tower or retreat.
Q: This build not strong enough.
A: I checked the build on "Jungle Practice" and the full build without the fire giant buff or the 3k gold pot (the red one) you're magical damage is 1130 and with both is 1450.
Q: This build is out of meta
A: Really? Please try it before and than leave a comment about it :)
Q: Can you help me to learn this build ?
A: Ofc ! You can catch me up in-game. my nickname is "MeToRaF" .
Q: Why you're not using "Devine Ruin" or "Polynomicon"
A: Go Back 2 chapters up for a full answer for this silly question.


I am not a Professional Smite player but i'm playing and following the game almost since the game beta.
But, sometimes people say things like "this build suck" and more and you know what?
I love this build.
And I think more people should use it in-game matches

And one last thing.
If you have anything to say about this build whether its good or bad leave a comment or PM me (If this site got those options haha :) )

So.. that's my Fav-Personal Kukulkan Build.


P.S. - Sorry for grammer. :)

What I build:

Book of Thoth, Warlock's Sash, Shoes of Focus, Ethereal Staff, Doom Orb, and Rod of Tahuti. This is what I build in Joust, which is where I excel at Kukulkan the most.

I think poly will be the best thing because at 60 stacks warlock's sash makes the magical power 900 and there is still 40 more stacks to go. This is when you have purchased all these items.
xZeroStrike (46) | November 2, 2016 1:43pm
But Kuku is more an ability based rather than AA. Poly would work on him, sure, but it does on pretty much every mage, although imo there's way better items to put in that slot in Kuku's case.

Poly's actually pretty good on him. It's best to consider Polynomicon as a lifesteal option that can provide an extra burst of damage...just because it procs on basic attacks doesn't mean it's best for basic attackers. It's actually most functional for gods that build for high damage, and have abilities that need to be up closer.

A good example is the physical version of this... Hydra's Lament. Which god is it best on? Loki. And he's definitely ability-based.

It's actually a perfect boost of damage after using Zephyr...Zeph is more close-medium range, which means you're in range for a basic attack followup...and it's easier to confirm because the ability slows the enemy. Combine that with the low CD (7 seconds WITHOUT CDR) and you can actually have it proc pretty often.

1. Book of Thoth is not just some "extra damage" on Kukulkan, it's his most important core item due to the way its passive stacks with Kuku's passive.

2. By not including Polynomicon in your Kuku build, you're missing out on over


free, easy, instant damage, every 5 seconds. Kuku has the absolute highest core power in the game, topping out at 1000 with the proper build not including buffs or potions, making him the most effective user of Polynomicon in the game.
MeToRaF | July 29, 2016 5:42am
1. Its known that Kukulkan's passive + Book of Thoth mana+ the stacks you gain from the item itself is a huge core item for his build,but, you're missing the point behind "Soul Reaver".
2. The item itself is a core item (and I find it more important) because the item offers you 300 mana that used into Kukulkan's passive + the massive eff of it that can deal a great damage
3. Again, by not including Polynomicon I miss basiclly nothing and if you find me wrong I would like to see a picture of it, video or even exp in live. :)
4. If you still think that I should add polynomicon, which item should be replaced by it ?
And most of all - thnx for the comment :)

MeToRaF | July 29, 2016 5:15am
To build Polynomicon is a mistake (in my eyes) because you can have a better item with a better eff than this one+ Kukulkan don't need lifesteal
