Intro

CaptElfimis here with my 4th total guide featuring Pele! I have not and probably will not test this build set in other modes as many of you know I primarily focus on Joust! <-4 seasons strong and I promise this will never change, If you would like to test these builds in Conquest(and others) by all means go for it.

I strongly feel like Pele is getting a really misunderstood reputation that is split so 50-50. Half say she is massively OP, Half say she is totally useless. I feel that her kit is more misunderstood than anything so I will cover it in detail further below ;D


*I am no longer heavily active in the SmiteFire community as I got my CDL back in August 2017 and life on the road bears little time for online gaming, However I will be as active as possible from here going forward as my schedule has become a bit more normal now.*

Pros/Cons

I personally love Pele's kit as I feel it has many strong points but as always there are some weaknesses overall to point out as well

Pro's
-Insane burst
-Early game presence
-Single Target damage
-Mobility
-Excellent bait and switch
-Ranged Assassin

Con's
-Heavily Focused/Low HP
-CC can be insta death
-Fuel burns out quickly
-Early game Mana burner if not careful(This can make you fall behind easily)

Skills/Combo's

This is something that really needs to be addressed because I feel like A lot of players are severely misunderstanding or poorly utilizing her kit for what it is. I keep seeing a ton of AA builds with Atk spd/Crit Spike which isn't absolutely terrible ((To each thier own) but just simply not the best use of her kit as a whole. Pele strongly benefits from the ability build and like most assassins, her power is in the combo.

Useful Combo's


The Countdown
3 -> 2 -> 1! Speed/Damage amp, Knock em up, Double dose of magma balls to the face! Extremely useful in the 1v1, especially if they already have 75% hp or less from being poked, this combo is all too easy to close and secure with on ill prepared players

The Dancer
4 -> 2 -> 3 -> 1 Ult in to apply your slow, knock up, speed ramp for dancing evasion and bonus power and as always magma balls to the face!

The Trickster
2 -> 1 -> walk away -> 4 Knock up to get the party started, then some hot magma ball face pokes and just as they think it was merely a poke/harass you ULT BACK INTO THEIR UNSUSPECTING FACE! I've secured numerous kills this way and it's excellent for getting your foes to blow their kit and be on C/D's

TBC

I will add quite a bit more to this guide, I am limited for time at the moment but at least wanted to get the foundation of it up and running.

I will address some of the other topics when I have time to update such as Gameplay, Match-Ups, and why not an AA Build for Pele (Because I know people will ask lol)

Be sure to check out my other guides in the meantime as well!

Hey Cap,

Some comments. I'm on my phone so not gonna use much bbcoding.
  • skill leveling: this seems off. If Conquest, people are leveling her 3 first, for the speed, the clear, and the lack of mana consumption.

    Also, although I generally agree with her 1 being prioritized, you're giving too much priority to her 3 over her 2,IMO. Her 2's increased radius at 3 and 5 are helpful and very disruptive in a team fight, and when used well can help her combo and burst potential, while you only get increased damage when leveling her 3. You might get maybe 3 points in her 3 for camp clear, but then I'd strongly consider leveling her 2 before finishing her 3.

  • speaking of combo... I don't see her best burst potential combo. You talk about blasting her 1 twice in quick succession... And you have Hydra's as an item option... But nowhere do i see any attack canceling. You realize she's got some great potential there especially if she gets Hydra's, right?

    1: AA, 1, AA (hydra proc), 1, AA (hydra proc)

    2: 1, AA (hydra proc), 2 (disrupt and keep them close), AA (hydra proc), 1, AA (hydra proc)

    Those are two basic examples. They should be in there. She can hit basics in between pyros so quickly. Even if you don't get hydra's, you can still increase your dps output by attack canceling.

  • unless you've got a good reason for it, Crusher could probably be sold late. It's not bad, and if you're spacing out her abilities, then you'll get better use of the passive, but it does somewhat fall off.

  • in most of your builds you only have crusher as a pen item. No option for BBS or TB?

  • why crit instead of power/pen? Why Rage early but your 2nd crit so late? And personally, if I were to go crit at all, I'd in fact probably do Malice+DB. 50% crit chance is solid for chance overall, and that combo gives you better damage potential IMO. You do give good reason for getting Rage early, but I think you're going basic attack there when you should be going ability.

    Other protection/bruiser items should really be options. Void Shield and Ancile are good bruiser items, and since Pele often wants / needs to get in close (and also doesn't have a true escape), she'll appreciate the added prots in some circumstances. Magi's Cloak should also be an option. Maybe Mantle too.

First and foremost, thank you for taking the time to check out my guid and leave some positive feedback :)

To hit all your points here:
1. As I stated the build is primarily focused in Joust and I have not tested it in other game modes and probably never will as I pretty much only play joust.

2.Those are just a few combo's listed, not all of them as combo attacks are purely situational. Those are merely just some good ideas and starting points for people who are struggling with using her kit.

3.You can absolutely sell crusher late, not a bad choice at all. It carries the early and in Joust most matches are over before you will need to sell it tbh. (Again situational)

4.More than one pen hasn't been a large issue yet for me, I don't really see the need for heavy pen unless facing extremely beefy tanks which are typically left out of Joust match-ups but again you can always situationally swap out what you need.

5.All of those final points again come down to situational building. My guide isn't 100% nor was it intended to be all inclusive, this is merely what I have been successful with in Joust so far and since we are currently lacking in good Pele guides atm (imo anyways) I thought I would go ahead and put together at least a foundation for now.

Forgot about the joust mention. Reading on phone is a pain in the ***. With that in mind, I understand some choices better. Still think her 2 should be prioritized over her 3 though, though 1 point in each ability to start is obviously perfect for joust.

A very thorough explanation of why you picked the items you did and when/where to use Pele's skills. I wish more people would follow this example when they post guides.

Thanks for the solid feedback. I try to put good thoughtful effort into my guides and they have come a long way. My Xing Tian guide being my most succesful has seen like 17 revisions so far so i've learned a lot along the way!
