My Introduction

What's going on, guys, Stuke here once again for another guide continuing my Warrior Series. In this guide, I will teach you what you need to know about how to play the great and almighty god of healing, death, royalty, the gallows, knowledge, battle, sorcery, poetry, frenzy, and the runic alphabet (This guy has a lot under his belt). Or simply being known as Odin, the Allfather.
Note: you don't have to follow this guide to the smallest detail, these are suggestions on how to play Odin. I encourage you to look at the comment section below and see other suggestions.

Who is Odin?


Odin is a Physical, Melee, Warrior that is more guardian-like than some of the other warriors with a significant lack of damage like Guan Yu but in the Early Game, Odin does an insane amount of damage.

Pros / Cons


Pros
  • High Early Game Damage
  • Portable Arena (The Ring)
  • High Crowd Control

Cons
  • Early Game Damage Falls Off Late Game
  • No Sustain
  • Ult is Easily Countered

Skills

An interesting passive for a warrior, this activates when either an enemy or an ally is killed. Giving Odin a movement and power boost for a short duration, also the passive increases in speed and power the more gods die in the game.
As Odin was one of the original 20 gods of Smite, their moves are very simple without much mechanics or depth to them but when Odin got his rework it can be combined with another ability. Speaking of which.
This ability gives him a shield that can absorb damage and not take away from his original health but here's the catch. Having a full Raven Shout with Lunge can increase the damage to the leap. This is the main reason why Odin's Early Game is as powerful as it is and can let him snowball hard.
An AoE slow that can hit your target twice. Not much to say about this ability as this is standard just like Lunge.
The main source of Odin's control, this creates a ring around an area that reduces attack speed and healing to any enemy trapped in the ring. This can fuel your passive and make the team fights all the deadlier for the enemy if they are stuck in the rings. The only downside of this is that enemies with leaps, can pass through the walls, or have the Phantom Veil Relic but since this ability has a very short cooldown so you can't waste this ult. Since Odin got a new passive, the increase in physical power is pushed onto this ability so no need to worry about losing that permanent damage.

Tips, Tricks, & Combo

  • Make use of the Early Game
    Odin does a lot of damage in the Early Game when compared to other Solo Lane gods, so play just aggressive enough to bully the enemy and get the first kill to help steamroll throughout the game. Do it quickly as Odin's damage falls off hard as the game goes on.
  • Use Ring of Spears Offensively and Defensively
    You can either trap someone in to confirm the kill or widen the gap between you and the person trying to kill you or an ally.
  • Build Tank Items
    Despite being a Warrior, his defenses, health, and lack of healing make it hard for him to sustain.

Valhalla
Hitting the enemy with Gungnir's Might to get them to slow down, pop your shield and leap on the now slowed target to make the shot easier to land. After that, you want to trap them in the ring to further punish them for not getting away any sooner. Alternatively, you can use Gungnir's Might after you drop Ring on your target to make it easier to box them or drop Ring first and follow up the combo from that point.

Stages of the Game

Early Game
There is no god that I can think of that has a more devastating god in the Early Game like Odin. The Bird bomb Combo is a certified killer if the enemy is squishy enough. Be careful as Odin's protections are low and easy just as easy to kill as his opponent.
Middle Game
Now, this is where Odin’s protection starts going up, but at the same time, his damage is starting to take a downturn. It's not a steep change, for both protection and damage, but there's just enough to make things a bit interesting.
Late Game
Now Odin’s protection and damage have completely switched places as now he is very tanky, but he lacks all that damage output. As a substitute, his crowd control becomes better and online more frequently so it's not all bad for him.

Summary

In conclusion, Odin can be a serious powerhouse. If feed throughout the Early Game and combined with his Crowd Control with his Ring of Spears can make him a threat if not dealt with quickly or suffer from a snowballing Odin. So, take these tips into battle and show glory for the Allfater.

As one option, I'd replace the hide of the urchin with spirit robe for max cdr - allows you to spam ult more often.

Plenty of health from pestilence and midgardian, so I'd say spirit robe is an acceptable sub.

Relic dagger is a nice substitute too if you want to spam blink rune + ult

This guide is pretty damn amazing. I'm rank X with Odin and use the same build as a jungler. Only thing I recently swapped out was Hide for Runeforged. I switch between the two, but sometimes, using Odin's slow, that Runeforged adds that extra damage to secure kills in team fights. Great great guide though.

Been running all the variations of this build and I really like where it's going for me. I've always been an Odin fan ( he was my first mastery 1 god in smite <3) but I faded away from him for a good while and this really helped me remember what a monster he is in the right hands.

I've been mostly using the Solo/Mid setup for a bruiser in joust with Hide replaced with Frostbound depending on enemy comp. aptly named JumpRekt Inc.

Just curious, why Shifters as the final item for your Jungler setup?

Power and Protection and an increase to either depending on how much health you have.
