Hi! I'm WolfWitch and this is my guide for Persephone, the newest goddess in SMITE! Persephone is a Control Mage that specializes in dealing massive amounts of damage and zoning the enemy team in the best of situations. Harvest and Grasp of Death are both unique and powerful abilities that ensure the viability of Persephone and allows her to be a menace in-game.
Right off the bet, you'll want to walk all the way towards speed camp, plant 2-3 Harvest plants there, go to mid lane, set up 3-4 stacks there, go back and go to the speed camp. This way you're maximizing your mana and your time, and preparing yourself to clear the camps.
I recommend getting Flourish at level 3 because you can't deal a lot of burst damage at level 3 like a Hera or a Merlin could, so you're better safe than sorry. By the time you reach level 5, you'll be able to take control of your teamfights with your excessive amount of zoning and Crowd Control.
Always keep some plants near your tower line. You'll have some plants near their tower line thanks to Bone Rush, but if you get pushed under tower, you won't have a line of defense ready against a possible dive.
To get yourself used to the Bone Rush animation delay, imagine if you used Unstable Vortex, but it only went off at the time that, today, the balls first meet each other.
Persephone has an easy kit, easy enough that you're able to put her entire kit in Instant Cast, which is something I'd recommend sugar!
If you have a feeling a teamfight is going to happen in a bit, Harvest the choke points and main areas of said place (Mid Lane, Fire Giant Pit, etc).
Harvest ahead of you and use Flourish to activate the Sprouts (T2 Harvest), which will instantly turn them into the plants and deal the most damage.
If you have a good aim, try to aim Grasp of Death on someone in between the frontline and the backline. If not, always try to aim in CC'd targets (Rooted, self rooted, stunned, etc.) or in a wall that'll affect most of them.
Grasp of Death will not latch itself onto enemies that are not in the cage's view. So if they're behind a wall (Fire Giant Pit structure wall) they won't get affected.
This was my quick guide to Persephone! I've played at least 8 games with her on PTS so far, and she's quite fun! Of course, I'm not a master in this character (yet) so if you have any feedback, please be sure to comment on this guide, or DM me if you're shy!
Also, I do have a Chang'e guide, and I welcome you to visit it if you ever desire to use the Faerie of the Moon in solo lane!
Love you all shortcakes, Wolf out! xoxo <3
