Smite God: Pele

Build Guide Discussion (2) More Guides

Purchase Order

Start (if preferred go 2 of each pot) Notes The reason for going three hp pots and only one mana pot is because of her ability leveling. Her 3 is an amazing jungle clear, requires only 10 mana per use, and provides a speed buff. Upon reaching level 2, you put a point into her 2. You use this along with her 3 to clear camps even faster. Because of the low mana cost of these skills, it is very unnecessary to get 2 mana pots unless you start ganking at level 3, when you put a point into her 1.

Pele' Threats

Pele' threats


Pele is the goddess of Fire, of Dance and Wind, of Volcanoes and Violence. Those who worship Pele speak of her as Madame Pele or Tutu Pele, while others know her as Ka wahine ’ai honua, ’the woman who devours the land’. Though she is capable of great acts of destruction, and possesses the tempter to provoke such acts, Pele is both destroyer and creator. It was through her mastery over the world's molten core that she wrought the Hawaiian Islands into being, forging them from the lava that ruptured forth from the mouths of her volcanoes. They are places of immense beauty, lush and brimming with life, and by looking upon and revelling in such beauty, you offer Pele worship.

Born of Kane Milohai, who wrought the earth, sky and heavens, and the Earth goddess Haumea, Pele is one of the fourteen children, seven sisters and seven brothers. It is from the enmity between these siblings that Pele arrived in Hawaii, after her exile at the hands of Kane Milohai for her fiery temper and conflict with her sister Namakaikahai, Pele wrought Hawaii into a paradise, making her home within the great calderas of the volcanoes that stand sentinel across the island chain.

To worship Pele is to grant one's devotion to a goddess of terrible power, one who can shape and render a grand, vibrant world into being at her slightest whim, and burn it to ashes just as quickly. But just as her worshippers are devoted to Pele, she devotes herself to them as a force of divine protection and care. She is a tireless defender of life and the people that dwell upon her islands, and any that seek to threaten them shall surely taste Pele's fire.


Passive- Everlasting Flame

When Pele drops below 50% health her flame is set alight, and she gains increased Physical Power, Lifesteal and Ability Lifesteal. This passive has a 20s cooldown.

If her health is lowered below 50%, she gains 40% lifesteal and 20 ability lifesteal. Use this to your advantage in team fights to keep yourself alive.

Ability 1- Pyroclast

Pele flourishes and fires out a magma orb ahead of her in a line. Once the fiery projectile reaches maximum distance it hovers for a brief instant, solidifies, and then returns back in pieces, dealing damage to enemies on the way back. The number of shards returning is dependent on the rank of this ability.
Pele has 2 charges of this ability.

Her main ranged poke.

Ability 2- Eruption

Pele fiercely erupts energy into the ground, exploding in an area around her, causing damage and Knockup to all enemies.
At ranks 3 and 5 the area expands again at a delay, dealing less damage and a smaller Knockup.

Her main CC.

Ability 3- Magma Rush

Pele starts to churn the land around her, dealing damage to nearby enemies and giving her constant movement speed while this ability is active.
Toggle this ability again to enter an amplified state, expending more fuel but dealing more damage and providing additional movement speed. This ability has no cooldown but uses a fuel gauge and cannot be activated when below 10 fuel.
This damage does not trigger item effects.

Her main engage/disengage. Also an escape if her ult is down.

Ultimate Ability- Volcanic Lightning

After a short warm up, Pele dashes forward dealing massive damage and a slow to the first enemy God hit, and dealing additional damage to enemies behind in a cone.
For the next 10 seconds or 3 attacks, every time Pele hits an enemy with a basic attack, she instead deals ability damage in a cone originating from that enemy.

Her only quick escape. Can be bodyblocked.

Extra Words

Not many people may actually care about this lol. This is my first guide and I did it on my phone so yeah....

Big thanks to DukeSloth for the information. The items listed are recommended by him. I personally haven't had the time to even play Pele yet so I just watched his video. Well that's it and don't judge me too hard lol.

Role in Team Fights

In a team fight, as Pele you poke with your 1 until you find a situation where you can dive in, get a kill, and get out. Additionally, you can knockup a large majority of the team with Eruption and slow a target with your ult.

Pros / Cons

-very high single target dps.
-fast jungle clear
-fast movement speed
-high burst damage

-very squishy
-no dash/jump for an escape unless you use your ultimate
-CC will destroy her
-slows make her useless
-ult can be easily body-blocked

Titan’s Bane fourth can be useful but I feel it’s a lttle early. Percentage pen is also more situational for tanks as a junglers main Job is to kill the ADC and Mid. I also suggest Transcendence as a situational item. Don’t get gladiators Shield in Jungle Pele.
