So... Ra. He is by far my favorite god and i have played him since i started Smite. He is one of the oldest gods in the game, and one of the best. Ra can mid extremely well, he is one of the best solo laners in the game, and his damage out-put is absurd for how much punishment he can take. So lets get started XD

Pros / Cons


One of the best pushers in the game
Can take a ton of damage
Can put out a ton of damage
Great support/teamfighter
Sick slow
His Ult

No get away
Not the strongest in 1 on 1 encounters
His main damage source is easy to dodge
Weak to silences
His Ult


Every time Ra uses an ability, his groundspeed is increased.

My Opinion: Your only get away and it makes you the fastest **********ing chicken around.

Ra summons a moving beam of intense light from the sky, doing damage to anyone caught under the beam.

My Opinion: LOADS OF ****ING DAMAGE! helps with lane clear but use it mostly on enemy gods for harrasment.

Light starts to emanate from Ra, stacking a slow every .3s on enemies near him. After 2s, the light detonates, doing damage and increasing the slow duration. Any enemies facing Ra at the time of the explosion are also blinded.

My Opinion: Sickest slow in the game, helps with your get aways, the blind can leave people being like "tHa **** JusT HaPpEneD?", and that little burst of damage can finish people off.

Ra summons a pillar of blessed light. Allies inside the blessing are healed every second and gain a magical and physical power buff. Enemies are damaged every second and incur a magical and physical power debuff.

My Opinion: This is Ra. You use this to push your lane, b/c it damages and debuffs their minions while healing and buffing yours. Also probably the best heal in the game.( My opinion.)

Ra calls on the power of the sun to decimate his foes in an extreme blast of heat in front of him, doing damage to all enemies unlucky enough to find themselves in the path.

My Opinion: The L4Z0R B3AM OF DEATH! There's nothing quite as satisfying as blasting some helpess soul with your Ra snipe. (Skip or watch to 1:20 to see my point)


On Ra 1st level medidtation (the 250g one) is the only active i normally get. It paired with Ra's heal equals MONSTER sustain.

Can be used instead of Meditation, again this is a personal preference choice.

Just standard penitration boots :)

I feel that these in are better boots for Ra, b/c hes weak to cc and it adds tankiness, but its personal preference.

Mandatory in my opinion, mage defense, offense, and pen. Perfect for Ra.

This is in my top 3 builds, def against those pesky junglers and assasins, mana to help you support, and cooldown for your abilities. Awesome.

This is also kind of a must have. This plus your slow and passive makes it impossible for people to run away from you.

You might be like, "are you high" when you saw me put this item on Ra, but it works. It allows you to gain power and tankiness as you push lanes.

Great item. gives you tons of power and with your tankiness, you'll stay alive and keep those stacks.

Turns your abilities into ****ing nukes! Nuff said.

If you build AD this item turns you from a free kill for an assasin into a unstoppable force
with its 600 Health.

Standard **** **** up mage item XD.

Creeping / Jungling

As Solo Laner or Mid, when you can, and with approval of your jungler, take either blue or harpie camps for farm and sustain. Also when your team is doing Fire Giant or Gold Fury, be there to heal the people taking the damage.

Team Work

Now as Ra you are a huge asset to your team in those epic teamfights. You change the course of battle with your heals, do damage to people with your Celestial Beam, slow incoming enemies to save lives, and rape people who are running away with your ult. As Ra you never really want to be the one split pushing so what you can do before you head to a teamfight is clear the next enemy wave and heal your own, and usually the minions alone will take a tower, while your helping your team slaughter in the battle! Huge Win For your team.

1v1/ Getting Ganked

As Ra in a 1v1, you want to harass with your Number 1, heal up/debuff them/buff yourself/damage them all at once with your 3, slow with your 2, and rape with your ult. Simple Enough( Not Really, it does take practice but if your good at this process you can beat even a Loki in a 1 on 1.

If your being ganked, what you do is BUILD WITH TANKINESS! But even when you do get ganked, genereally,unless you can kill the ganker, pop your slow, then throw your heal down a bit in front of where you're running and slow+passive+heal= You Living XD.


This is my first guide, and it was with my favorite god. So my opinion on this guide. All the builds really work. I find that the first is the easiest and it is kind of a play it safe Ra. #2 and #3 are my favorites b/c you do damage from your stacks but are still unkillable. Finally Build 4 is just ridiculous. You do the damage of an ult with just your Celestial Beam, but your Ult is damn near a 1 hit on squishies. Anyway remember... Push lanes with your 3, slow with your 2, harass/ push with your 1, rape with your hard to hit ult XD, build like a mage bruiser, take towers, kill ****, win games. Good Luck and have fun sniping ****.
