Stacking build

Notes I don't recommend stacking builds that much cuz they're killing early game flexibility. You cant rotate, you can't miss a lane, etc. It paid off very highly when you stacked but until that point, it's a slow burn reward for me. And not practical. At least for me.

But here we are.

Sustain & Defensive Heavy Build

Notes So Many people build heavy defensive items on mid laners such as , , , and go on. That's unnecessary most of the time.

If you wanna survive? You need high cdr, a bit more health and life steal. This is the way of how mages take defensive measurements. Not like building solo lane/support items.

This build could help those who focused by the enemy team or don't wanna die so quickly.

You have full cdr (%40) + %20 lifesteal + 550 extra health and also %30 Crowd Control Reduction. In my opinion, this is the safest build for The Pos.

And about the 7th item (after selling shoes and consume ? That's up to your strategy.

If you feel good about yourself and your Poseidon then you might go for more burst damage such as . If you wanna more mobility (which is another good stats for surviving and engaging a lot) definitely go for or you wanna be even tankier and having more sustain and being safer? then consider buying

Btw I'm not recommending cuz it's hard to stack and stacking not worth much in terms of health. So you don't need that but ofc it's an option too.

Introduction

First of all, English is not my main language so please execuse some of my rookieness :)

First of all, English is not my main language so please excuse some of my grammar mistakes :)

Hi.. I'm not a high ranked(diamond and above) or pro player(cuz ı don't trust my current PC build and internet service for higher-ranked platform). I'm mostly a casual and golden ranked player and I'm almost at 9 mastery level with Chiron. Tho I'm not an advanced competitive Smite player at the same time ı watch and follow professional players, analysts, and educator streamers. And try to follow the current meta since 5.17.

I try to cover Poseidon in form of every role he can possibly play.

People try to build Poseidon like every other "CDR&Burst Damage Hybrid Mage Build". But you have to consider his passive, you're kinda also a basic attack focus mage. Maybe not as Olorun, Chronos, Sol, and Freya but right after these 3 ADC monsters probably Poseidon would be the 4th god that his basic attacks matter most(Nu Wa, Morrigan are only close calls). And he can be really fast with additional movement speed items. So always consider this.

And you're fast as you land your basics(even on minions and jungle camps). Never forget that. And since you don't have any high mobility/escape abilities like dash or leap. You need mobility items that can proc&stack with your passive and ability no#2. Don't forget that "Poseidon is valuable and legit God as he keeps his mobility at high levels."

Abilities of Poseidon





He is a very easy god to understand and a very old god to known by others. So that's why ım not gonna gave a full presentation about his abilities but ım gonna talk about few key factors.

1st of all. Poseidon has a lot of CC. You're not just about your ultimate. Your and two of the best clear abilities in all game? YES! But that's not just it.

Your has a knock-up/knock-back combo. And you can stop a god that charges at you even while they're in mid-dash. Geb, Fenrir, Athena, Vamana all would be stopped if you hit them with your while they're dashing.

And your has a cripple effect that means they cant use mobility abilities while in the vortex. They cant dash or leap. That's why you can make it hard to jump on yourself for the enemy if you use this properly.

You can set up plays for your teammates. And Your ultimate has a wide and high knock up effect (Similar to Sylvanus's ult). So don't forget that. Your abilities are surely offensive and can deal high damage but with proper use, they're defensive and good utility as well.


People always use for long-range shots and for short to mid ranges. That's kinda wrong. Actually, it's not totally wrong but the potential of these abilities are not just about that.

Similar to Ra's #1. Poseidon's is a very narrow and slow line attack (even slower than Ra's and has a shorter range). So it would be hard to hit an enemy with that while that enemy pretty away from you but since your is a ground target ability ( that means its not a projectile and that's cuz you can't miss) use it for poke&lock then use for close-range interaction. I recommend this for Ra mains too.

Otherside of these, always keep your tide-meter full. Use basic attacks a lot on minions and jungle camps. And your buffed basics can kill a lot of squishies too. So don't afraid to use'em. Your and are hand to hand.

Combos for Poseidon

Short Combos:





+ BASICS

Mid Combos:

BASICS

BASICS









Full Combos:

With AA Cancels:

BASIC + + BASIC + + BASIC + + BASIC



BASIC + + BASIC + + BASIC + + BASIC + + BASICs

You can cut short these combos. I just try to demonstrate the fullest.

Without AA Cancels:





AA Canceling would work pretty well for Poseidon but it's not an obligation for players. You can enjoy Poseidon without auto attack cancel too. But if you can pull it off. It would be helpful.

Gameplay

For ADC Poseidon:

Since you've great clear with and . you could out clear the enemy. But u must learn how to be patient and give time for your support to farm as well or at least time for assist to your minions kills. In Mid Lane yes you're a lone wolf mosstly but in a duo lane, you need to adjust your gaming phase to your support.

And always make your jungler or support ward both entries (from the jungle) to duo lane. Cuz you don't have dash or leap or Argus ( Sorry Kraken :( )

For Jungle Poseidon:

The early game (before hitting 5th level I mean) would be a bit tough. You should avoid ganking tough targets or full health enemy gods. And definitely must avoid initiating against early game assassins like Thanatos, Ratatoskr, Arachne, Ravana etc.

Since you have a fine clear for a jungler don't forget to help a lane when that lane loses their God. And always help to mid at most.

Thru late-game use basics against jungle monsters for procking your passive, with this way your damaging abilities (yes ult too) would give extra %20 damage. Great ganking passive. Always make it full before ganks and team fights.



At last but not least;

His main role, Mid Lane.

Make sure to have maximum benefit from your jungler and wards. Always communicate with your Jungler. You're not Janus u can't escape thru walls and you're not Agni you cant instantly dash out of everything. Cuz of that you need an assistant and knowledge about warding.

In early game always ward side Xp jungles but not directly inner circle of the jungle but more close to hallways that open to mid lane with this way you can track XP buffs and also possible jungler attempts.

In the early game, more focus on farming. But thru mid to late game. Rotate and help others. You have a speedy build here. And don't kept your ultimate for a possible triple, quadra kill chances. Even killing one enemy or usage as a wall for saving your friend (or yourself) would be very valuable in the game. Don't hold Kraken for selfish desires guys. As it said; "Release It!".

But also don't trust to Kraken that much, I saw so many Poseidon players that just stop and watch others after landing Kraken, like Kraken can arrange everything for them. Nooo, If you're at low health run with that time you gain via Kraken. If you feel that you can engage then start to pull your combos off.

Don't just stare after Kraken. Be active. Always remember that Kraken can be avoided with Aegis in terms of damage dealt and can be avoided with Beads in terms of knock up CC. And also remember Kraken ult has 2 circular layers. The inner-circle has maximum damage and high knock up. The outer circle has mid to low damage and no knock-up.

And don't forget Kraken delivers %30 slow on the enemy too. If you stack this with Gem of Iso then you have %50.

Kraken is not a solution for everything but it's a very valuable tool for you. And you shouldn't kept that from your team.


In General:

Rotate a lot, ward a lot, communicate a lot(especially with Jungler and Support), be aware of your cc, be aware of your passive, use your basic attacks it could create the difference between death and life for you and release the Kraken frequently and logically as possible.

Pros / Cons

Pros:

- You don't have escape tool but also you're not an immobile god.
- Your kit one of the easiest to pull off, especially when you take your passive seriously
- Bunch of CC
- Poseidon can make use of many but many items from inventory. He is a versatile god. I mean Gods like Kukulkan, Anubis, Chronos, etc. generally have a "must-do" build. Cuz w/o that build their efficiency will drop down but cuz of this predictability they're also easy to counter. I can pop up 6 or 7 more different builds for Poseidon and probably all of'em would work for you just fine. That's a good option to have.
- Kraken!

Cons:

-Yes you're mobile but you have no escape tools. Easy to jump on
- Slow abilities and items could kill your "mobility card" easily.
- Kraken is avoidable.
- Your one it's hard to hit and easy to miss
- As an old fashion Mage you're pretty squishy.

Thanks for updating this: Was just about to convert my Sea man from a jungler into a boring mid when I seen this. I am a bit confused about the starter items in Jungler though:

It says to get lost artifact but in the actual builds, cronos/doom orb are not shown as the first items, can you clarify what is going on there?
1
Kriega1 (129) | July 31, 2020 8:53am
Some examples do have it in the build, like one of them has an early chronos', the other ones I just assume you finish the lost artifact later into doom orb.

Just wanna point that I don't think Spear of the Magus worth on Poseidon anymore. Since it doesn't provide flat pen on passive anymore, and procs (reasonably) only on his 3 and maybe Trident, I think you should build other items for flat pen like Divine Ruin or Spear of Desolation

And ı get rid off for good. It was hard to say goodbye to Spear of Magus :D It was magnificient back then :D

Hadeyan (2) | April 13, 2020 9:32am
Thx for reply. And ı think like that too. And ı mentioned about this in "notes" section of the builds that ı have magus for pen.

But yes ı think ı should completely get rid of it.

Thx again.

Well the only point I want to say (that wasn't covered at all) is about the skill leveling order. The best leveling order I can imagine for conquest is the one I use on my guide that is:

  • Start with Tidal Surge due the lower cooldown and same damage of Whirlpool.


After that, follow this priority
  1. (For wave clear and high damage while cripples the enemy)
  2. (For movespeed and increase your passive)
  3. (For damage proposing only)

  • As soon as available to enhance the damage

If you need more details, I'll.give them as soon as I get home and turn on my PC

Hadeyan (2) | March 30, 2019 8:39am
Thanks. Same with my leveling order but as you said, ı didnt elaborate it. Thnx for that.

Kriega1 (129) | March 30, 2019 12:12am
If this is conquest, why are you going with 40% CDR in your builds when Potion of Magical Might exists? Or is it because you're replacing boots with another item due to Elixir of Speed?

Anyway,

Before we start Im just going to mention you've only listed Purification Beads and not Aegis Amulet for your mid and adc builds.

Another thing is that, you haven't mentioned on your threats for Thoth that if he's caught in your Whirlpool he's crippled and therefore cannot use Evade and Punish.



Onto mid builds:

I have to disagree that your start is "solid". There really is no reason to have wards that early at level 1, and if you're wary of an early speed buff invade all you have to do is watch the jungle (literally, I do it every game due to PTSD). Get 2 Healing Potions and 2 Mana Potions (or 2 Multi Potions) instead.

Shaman's Ring would preferably be built a bit earlier, before soul gem, as the Rings are quite effective on Poseidon (even an all ring build could work), especially Shaman's Ring.

First build "CDR & High Movement hybrid build" , Doom Orb is beneficial for Poseidon but im not sure it's really the best choice considering the price, especially when you could just go into something like Telkhines Ring. I guess since the rest of your build isn't that expensive, save for Chronos' Pendant and Gem of Isolation, you can afford to fit it in. But with Speed Elixir and Shaman's Ring I would advise something else instead, like Rod of Tahuti or Soul Reaver.

As for "Movement & Burst Hybrid" build, im not quite sure what you're going for here. Your only pen item is magus, which requires several ticks of Whirlpool to reach max stacks at which point Ethereal Staff and Soul Reaver do the most damage, but the problem with this is that those 2 items proc upon the first instance of damage, so if you're saving the burst from those two items, as well as the Soul Gem burst proc, for something like a well placed Release The Kraken! then you're only getting the 10 base pen from Spear of the Magus to those item damage procs UNLESS you catch the enemies with Whirlpool beforehand and they take several ticks of damage to proc the Spear of the Magus stacks.

What I am saying is you might want to swap Ethereal Staff or Doom Orb or Chronos' Pendant for something with some flat pen on it, like Spear of Desolation.

Alternatively, if you want the burst build to kill tanks you could go for something like (assuming lategame, speed pot, and no boots): Soul Reaver, Spear of Desolation, Obsidian Shard, Divine Ruin, Shaman's Ring, Ethereal Staff/ Gem of Isolation as a lategame, no boots build. You would get Deso as a replacement to the boots, and obsidian as a replacement to Magus.

Basically, it would be good to see more situational items listed, especially Divine Ruin (it's a sin that you did not include this item) along with others like: Rod of Tahuti, Obsidian Shard, Shoes of the Magi, Telkhines Ring, Hastened Ring, Demonic Grip, Spear of Desolation, Magi's Cloak, Winged Blade, Mantle of Discord, Dynasty Plate Helm, perhaps Void Stone.



Onto ADC builds:

I really am not sure about Chronos' Pendant and Doom Orb, especially Doom Orb that early considering it's price. It's just too expensive. I would replace Chronos' Pendant with Bancroft's Talon instead as you're going an AA-based build.

Here's how I would Start: Hunter's Blessing, Tiny Trinket, 2 Healing Potions and 2 Mana Potions or 2 Multi Potions.

Build: Shoes of the Magi/ Shoes of Focus (if CDR boots then get Magus before Shaman's Ring), Bancroft's Talon, Hastened Ring, Shaman's Ring, Spear of the Magus, Telkhines Ring, Rod of Tahuti. Sell boots lategame for Chronos' Pendant.

Alternatively, you could do a build where you skip boots. start: Hunter's Blessing, Emerald Ring, 2 Healing Potions and 1 Mana Potion or 1 Multi Potion.

Build: Demonic Grip (Demonic first because it's cheap, though you can go Shaman's first too), Shaman's Ring, Hastened Ring, Spear of the Magus, Telkhines Ring and then last item go with somethine like a Bancroft's Talon or Rod of Tahuti and lategame when you have Elixir of Speed sell boots for a pen item like Spear of Desolation or Obsidian Shard or get Chronos' Pendant.

For "AA Base Build late game" and "Hybrid Build Late Game" I just don't know what you're trying here, yes you can perhaps get some Poly procs off with Whirlpool crippling targets, but considering you don't have that much high power in the build and you're not building Book of Thoth or even Gem of Isolation I think it's ill-advised to get Polynomicon and Soul Gem together, as they both benefit from high power in the build and especially Polynomicon considered that in AA-builds unless you can proc it very easily/often (like Freya banish, auto attack as they fall down, or Chronos stun into poly basic attack) you shouldn't really be building it.



Onto Jungle builds:

Starter, you should really go for Lost Artifact instead of Shoes for the better clear.

As for "Mid Game (w/ boots & blessing)", you're making that same mistake as before and you're building two expensive luxury items in a row, especially the very expensive Doom Orb, and you're only getting pen by your fourth item.

You should ideally decide if you want to prioritise Shaman's Ring or Chronos' Pendant and then ditch Doom Orb from the build. It's not an early or mid game item.

Start: Assassin's Blessing, Lost Artifact or Emerald Ring, potions.

Build 1: Shoes of the Magi, Chronos' Pendant, Spear of the Magus, Shaman's Ring, Telkhines Ring, situational (damage item or defense, e.g. Rod of Tahuti).

Build 2: Shoes of Focus, Shaman's Ring, Spear of the Magus, Telkhines Ring, Spear of Desolation, Gem of Isolation.

As for the lategame no boots builds see my discussion on your Mid lategame no boots builds.

Thanks for detailed response to this.

You can sell some CDR items for more damage or pen items of course. But late game is not just about being Level 20 its like 17-20 levels and you wont to buy potion of magic in level 17 or 18. So Full CDR will work for you. Cuz some games can end earlier and maybe you wont be able to reach the state that you're selling boots. Thats why full cdr before 20 level is always works imo.


About wards, in current meta early game ganks is a thing. Thats why Hi-Rez nerfed speed buff and assassin's blessing. But we can still saw 2-3 level mid lane ganks. So wards never hurts imo.

----

Rod of Tahuti and Soul Reaver are mentioned in my "item tips" section. Like ı said before Poseidon can make many items of use for himself. Thats wgy this build is kinda suits to my gamestyle.

Im agree with maybe Shaman's Ring could bought earlier than Soul Gem.



I dont think trading Doom Orb with Spear of Deso is a good idea but ım agree with other 2.. Yes it could be more practical. I see your point.

I reccomend Divine Rune in my "Some İtem Tips" section. But its not a mandatory item for Pos imo unless you're against a heavy healer team comp.


Poseidon ADC; Doom Orb kinda Transendence for Poseidon. But ı see the benefit of trading Chronos with Bancroft. Yes that would make him more bursty and better sustain. Thanks for that tip. Also ı love the idea that Chronos for late game pick. But ı wonder what about his mana need ? Bancroft is enough ? If it is then yes ı liked your opinion too.


Polly procs with your 3 and also helps you to kill people that survive after your ultimate with your basics (saving mana) more easily. But yes its a bit risky build. And I said that in my build notes.

But ı see your adc build is more straight-forward. Good.


Early game Poseidon is realy slow. Thats why ı pick boot starts. But in terms of clear yes that pick is more useful.

Actually ı realy liked Emerald Ring start. Why ı didnt think that. Thanks man. Its far better starter item than boots.


Thanks for all these valuable advices and consideration. It helped.
