This is just personal experience. To me, Thoth clears is way better than Scylla in the early game phase since Scylla's clear is horrible at level 1. Most of the time he will out clear you and maybe poke you at a long distance. Just try to get out of range when he pulls out his 3 and 1 combo. As of right now, 6/5/18.. Thoth Mid is ridiculous! I ban him and Agni when I get the opportunity. Scylla is pretty much gets better around level 9-11ish. Mid-Late game you should be able to pretty much clear the wave.. the problem I have with Thoth is sometimes I have difficult rooting him, he pulls his 3... boom poke with 1 move to 3 then he dash backward at a longer distance. Pull 3 against then after he dash he stuns you. I mean how the hell do you root him like that? This is just my opinion but you should be able to one shot him later in the game.


Hey guys, here's my build for Scylla please read the description below. I'll try to explain the best I can. Please keep it mind, I am not an expert in Conquest although I do play ranked conquest and this build works with any game modes you like. Hope you like this! :)

Scylla's Conquest Build & Relics


Build #1

In the beginning of the game, you pretty much want to go Mage's Blessing it's pretty straight forward. Then get Uncommon Staff I'll explain why... in this season I feel like having more health and surviving in team fight of course is very important. 2nd item go for Shoes finish Shoes of the Magi it'll give you more Magical Power than the CDR boots as well as penetration, 18% movement speed. After that, keep farming mid harpies, jungle buffs then back to your lane. FINISH Warlock's Staff then stacks, this item gives you less power than Book of Thoth. Most importantly it gives you a lot of health and mana. The downside is it takes 100 stacks, it's a bit pointless if you're fallen behind in exp. 2nd item has to be penetration boots. 3rd item is Spear of Desolation it has a good amount of pen and 10% oooldown. 4th item you might want to choose between Soul Gem or Bancroft's Talon, but both items are pretty good. 5th item has to be Chronos' Pendant as Scylla you need CDR. Your final item you can finish it with Soul Reaver it gives a lot of power and it has that additional damage. It'll give you that one shot later on the game. Ethereal Staff is also pretty good and Obsidian Shard if you're going a lot against tanks (support& warrior)

Build #2

Let's say you don't want HP and then first build feels weak or you don't feel like stacking. I recommend using this build. You can go the traditional start for mage which is no starter item, rush Bancroft's Talon for Life steal. Second item has to be Shoes of the Magi. 3rd Item is Spear of Desolation then 4th item I would lean against cool down and get Chronos' Pendant from this point it's pretty much straight forward pick up Soul Gem and Soul Reaver for more DAMAGE. That will give you that one shot later in the game. Magi's Cloak & Mantle of Discord can replace Soul Gem for extra protection from CC. :)

As of 6/5/18

Since I've been playing a lot of ranked conquest lately, I thought why not add a little bit of defense in this build. Only get defense when you are getting focus a lot by the enemy team or there's a lot of CC. Pick one from one of these items.

- Magi's Cloak - This item is pretty straight forward it's pretty much works the same as Purification Beads

- Mantle of Discord - This item gives a 1 second stun if you are low. It's pretty useful in some situation. Plus it has a 10% Cooldown reduction and lots of Phy/Mag protection. Let's say a Loki ult you, I believe it does proc against him, it will leave him stun for 1s, allowing you to use your Sentinel to escape.

I've seen some sick plays with someone using Mantle of Discord I thought it was hilarious, so here's the story. Our jungler is Ratatoskr he was at the solo lane trying to clear wave and split push. He got rotated by the whole team and then while he was low the Mantle of Discord proc to them and then he ult out while spamming Laugh & VGS I thought it was hilarious lol. Definitely pick it up when you get a chance! :)

R.I.P. Rod of Tahuti aka "Rod of the Booty".

Leveling your abilities, Skill Combos & Tips/Advice


Sic 'Em (1st Ability) - You want to level this ability after you're done with Crush. Later in the game. This will do a lot of damage. At max rank, Scylla summons two hounds if they are close together.

Crush (2nd Ability) - You pretty much want to start with Crush. This will give you her minion clearing in the early stage. Late game, this ability deals a ton! you are also slows while in the circle and have the enemies' protection reduce.

Sentinel (3rd Ability) - (!!!) Do not focus this ability that much. Although I would level this up at LEVEL 2 so you can go to jungle buffs & mid harpies a lot easier since you have no boots in the beginning. Since Scylla first ability/root doesn't do that much damage in the early game. Again... this is just PERSONAL OPINION, don't get mad at the comment section. Thanks!

I'm a Monster (Ultimate) - As long as you focus on 1st, 2nd and your ultimate. You should be fine. Late game, this deals a 1000 damage with full build! :)

Quick Learner (Passive) (RECENTLY CHANGED) -It's pretty much a free magical power. Each abilities gain 25 Magical Power for each max rank. Total of 100 Magical Power.


Scylla's has 3 combos. Follow the Icon below. This is how you use Scylla kit. Make sure you hit them all for that sweet sweeeeeet sweeeet damage!

> >

(Note: This combo alone can one shot someone in late game w/ full build.)

> >


First advice I can give you it's a no brainer, if you're playing Scylla please focus on squishy targets. Don't go after tanks like Support or Warriors (Tanks), they will most likely build magical protection against you. I would advice you to focus on Mage, Hunter and Assassin if you can. Only attack tanks if you know they are like 6-7 levels behind you or maybe later in the game when it's time to push objectives or grouping up as a team.

Second advice is if you are getting gank a lot by the jungler and dying to mid lane a lot. I would recommend warding your lane. This is a very common strategy and it will help you not to feed in the game. At least stay behind towers, communicate with your jungler, talking trash and spamming vgs is not gonna help you win your game. Just try to be patient, farm as much as possible and come back later in the game.

Informative Videos

If you are looking to know more about Scylla and want to get better at her. Why not watch a couple of videos where I learn to play her? Keep in mind, this will only give you a general idea on how to use her. I strongly advice not to follow their build due to the items changes from Season 3 to Season 5. Anyway, here's some very informative videos and a little bit funny stuff as well. If you are new to the game I advice to watch some vids. :)

Pros / Cons

+High Damage
+Great for beginners.
+Great in team fight

-Weak early game
-Mana Hungry


In the end, Scylla is pretty fun to play. She is always known for her late game status. Anyway before I go I just want to mention that I don't have any history when it comes to coding this guide, I pretty much follow the SmiteFire guide for coding. I tried to make it neat as much as possible. I hope you guys find this guide helpful. Please take one second to rate the guide if you like it. Thank You and have fun with this build!
