4 Y
Ne Zha dashes forward and becomes immune to Crowd Control. If he hits an enemy god, he lifts them into the sky, banishing them for 4s, unleashing a 3-hit combo (successfully timed attacks during the combo result in critical strikes), then smashing them back to Earth in his starting location. This ability hits one initial time upon knockup, the 3-hit combo, and then again dealing additional damage to enemies in the radius as he lands for a total of 5 hits. While knocked skywards, enemies are not considered Crowd Controlled. When Ne Zha lands, he gains protections for 5s.

Ability Type: Dash
Damage Per Hit: 23 / 40 / 57 / 74 / 91 (+45% of your Physical Power)
Damage (Initial/Landing): 50 / 105 / 160 / 215 / 270 (65% of your Physical Power)
Protections: 30 / 35 / 40 / 45 / 50
Cost: 80 / 90 / 100 / 110 / 120
Cooldown: 90s

Attack Speed is very bad on Ne Zha because A: he struggles to get basics off in a teamfight; and B: His 2 gives him plenty of attack speed already.

Also not building flat pen on most assassins in Smite is usually not a great idea. I like some of the ideas but there is basically no situation where I would build either of these ways. If you want a bit of attack speed still, you could build The Crusher 2nd or 3rd because the passive works well with Universe Ring Toss

Platypus, please correct your skill of right now it's impossible, with level 4 of the ult only available at level 17.

As for the rest of the build, some of the items are fine, but Bloodforge, when it's built, should be built later (and I don't really recommend it for Ne Zha), and Qin's Sais and Ichaival really aren't recommended typically for him, as he relies quite a bit more on abilities. Yes, he does use basics a lot, but it's more for attack canceling and cleaning up.

As such, I can't really recommend this build at this point.

Why you not like BF on him? It's high power and shield is always great after deleting a squishy. Also more per great for hs passive.
Branmuffin17 (370) | September 30, 2019 4:57pm
Note that I didn't say I didn't like it on him. I said it should be built later (when it's built)...that's my personal opinion.

Earlier, he needs more pen, and BF is also quite expensive, especially given the fact this person is building Deathbringer on him in the 3rd slot. You really want to build another high priced item 4th ( Bloodforge), followed by a semi-expensive item 5th ( Malice), and yet another one 6th ( Qin's Sais)?

And actually, he has NO pen in this build. No Jotunn's Wrath, no The Crusher or Brawler's Beat Stick. As an alternative, no protection reduction from Void Shield...or if you're committing to what looks to be a pretty strong basic attack focus, what about The Executioner, or Titan's Bane if you want the up-front pen?

And of course, mixing crits and Qin's isn't really that beneficial. Qin's passive doesn't benefit from critical hits, and vice versa.

Bloodforge thus doesn't have a good place in this build for me, at least the way the build currently stands. You get the lifesteal benefit only from basic attacks, and while he will absolutely appreciate the passive shield, his damage is handicapped due to 0 pen, so unless he's cherry-picking last-hits from teammates that have already whittled down the enemy's health, or playing against people who overextend like crazy and just sit there letting him keep attacking, he's unlikely to get as many kills as he could otherwise.

I didn't take much time to fully comment on the build before because I didn't feel there was much effort put into this build, but with a bit of a deeper look, this build has some major issues.

If I were to commit like this to basic attacks, it would be for funsies, and I'd get Hastened Katana and The Executioner to replace Ichaival and Qin's Sais, and I'd probably open up my crit options to not only Malice, but Rage and Fail-Not as well.

This has to be troll
Gulfwulf (81) | September 30, 2019 7:14pm
The build is bad as per what Bran said, but it's not troll.
GaseousClay (1) | September 30, 2019 12:09pm
It's a case of skill level. Where any build works.

I'm sorry for disappointing you but it doesn't seem to be troll :p
