Solo Build

Smite God: Ratatoskr

Item Purchase Order

Final Build Example
?Standard Build for a Ratatoskr solo. The last item is totally situational, in this case I chose Magi's Cloak to avoid hard cc.

Build Item Acorn of Yggdrasil
Build Item Void Shield
Build Item Ancile
Build Item Brawler's Beat Stick
Build Item Mantle of Discord
Build Item Magi's Cloak

?Standard start to stay alive until you get your acorn online. You don't need Mana Potions because you have blue buff and also don't need to return base to buy your acorn, so buy a lot of sustain. You can also buy some Tier 1 Defense and less potions.

Build Item Magic Acorn Build Item Warrior's Blessing Build Item Chalice of Healing Build Item Healing Potion Build Item Healing Potion Build Item Healing Potion

Bridge Items
?Items to help you at early game with a consider stats and passives for the price but not so helpful at late game so consider replacing it.

Build Item Gladiator's Shield Build Item Runic Shield

Defensive items
? Pestilence is a core item if you are fighting against a healer. This items will offer the protections you need or other important stats for a solo such as health pool.

Build Item Bulwark of Hope Build Item Pestilence Build Item Stone of Gaia Build Item Breastplate of Valor Build Item Hide of the Urchin Build Item Mantle of Discord Build Item Spirit Robe Build Item Magi's Cloak Build Item Lono's Mask Build Item Genji's Guard Build Item Oni Hunter's Garb Build Item Hide of the Nemean Lion

Ofensive Items
?Some damage items to help you. Brawler's Beat Stick is a core item if vs. Healers. The preference here, for a solo build is always those items that offer protections too

Build Item Brawler's Beat Stick Build Item Masamune Build Item Titan's Bane Build Item Void Shield Build Item Shifter's Shield Build Item Ancile

Extreme Tank build example
?Situational build. The recommended is always a bruiser build. This build will max you tank capabilities and you will use your kit for the utility proposes only 'cause your damage will be too low. You will not be able to secure a kill easily or do a decent damage like you would if you did a bruiser build.

Build Item Acorn of Yggdrasil Build Item Breastplate of Valor Build Item Pestilence Build Item Midgardian Mail Build Item Mantle of Discord Build Item Lono's Mask

Normal tank build
?Normal tank build with a little power. If the enemy has no/low cc, change Magi's Cloak in another defense item.

Build Item Acorn of Yggdrasil Build Item Breastplate of Valor Build Item Bulwark of Hope Build Item Magi's Cloak Build Item Mantle of Discord Build Item Masamune

Damage build example
?If you got brainless enemies and/or the match is too easy, you can rush more damage than the normal.

Maybe his stun be a problem to you. Avoid his ultimate waiting he press the button, then you dash out of his range. He has damage but you have more, probably you won't have problems to kill him/win the lane.


She will not die until you have Brawler's Beat Stick but also will not be a problem. Her main damage source can be avoided by just walking away. Just be careful with her ultimate. Try to force it before go to a final strike (a tower dive for example).


Ancile is a must item when fighting against her. Although she is annoying to fight is not too difficult since she do not have a high damage early game and his skills can be countered by Ancile.


Take a beads and use your ultimate when he uses your. Your Acorn Blast can stop his Brutalize. Just be careful with his jump.

Guan Yu

Hard to kill but easy to put pressure. Avoid his ultimate using your or dashing away. Remember his ultimate does a lot of damage if he hits all attacks so, be careful.


She has a good damage but she need to get close of the wave to clear it, so you can attack her easily. Also she has one of the lowest health pool in the game. Just be careful she can be cc immune with her 2 while in light.


Avoid his jump and he has nothing to offer to you. You can get out of his ultimate using TTC.

Sun Wukong

He has a very good kit and probably you won't be able to kill him, but also he does not have nothing that can kill you easily.

Baron Samedi

One of the worst mages to fight against. Extremely annoying. Avoid his ulti with yours and dash away from his root. Try to avoid his 2 to don't heal him. Remember that if he hits his 1, he will decrease your attack speed and damage (why? I don't know why a mage does that but, he does). "Every nerf on him makes him need more nerfs".


Bellona is a freaking horse at early game. Avoid fighting without Gladiator's Shield or some defenses and you will be ok. Just try to avoid being pressured by her and is more than enough.


He steals your healing so be careful, heal yourself far from him. Due he is a very big target I'm almost sure you will hit all your skills.


A fairly pair. You both have damage early game. You will not be able to put pressure but at least you won't will suffer. Remember that your ultimate makes you immune to cc, so you can cancel his silence/slow, but you take the damage anyway. Gladiator's Shield here is essential to heal yourself.


Very strong wave clear. Since you won't have physical protections until mid game, be careful with the minions. Avoid his silence and escape of his ulti with your dash/ultimate.


Avoid stay close to his tower and be careful with his ulti that you can't avoid easily. He has a anti-heal in his kit so pay attention.


High CC and a good early damage. Beads are essential here. Avoid stay close his tower to don't be pushed and try to avoid his Fearless.

Zhong Kui

High damage and high healing. Avoid his paper and be careful with his ultimate, he gains double protections.

Cu Chulainn

A tough guy for you. Be careful with his anti-healing with his 1 and his transformation. DO NOT FIGHT WHEN HE IS A MONSTER, mainly on early game or you will die.

Erlang Shen

Very difficult to play with him. His CCs and high damage makes a difficult battle to your side try to play more passive.


His knockup and dash with a stun will put you in serious problems if you get too close of his tower. Try to play a little passive against this guy and due the healing he has, killing he will probably be almost impossible.


Her high speed and heal will make kill her a hard task but her kit has nothing that can be a really problem to you, although her ultimate will be something annoying to deal with.


She has a bad kit that has no problems to you. The only thing that can be a problem is her ultimate, Sentinel of Zeus that provide a ridiculous shield, saving her life most times.


High damage, high healing, can easily avoid your attacks with her 2. Chang'e is a counter of a solo ratatoskr in my opinion. Play safe against her in any circumstance.


High CC and High damage. Fight against an Ymir is a true hel. Just accept that you lost the lane and play safe to stay alive.

Final Considerations

"Hey! Keep your eyes off my nuts!" - Ratatoskr

My conclusion is that Rat is working very good at solo lane (An A+ solo laner), and still a good character at jungle (an A to A+ jungler) and can be a very fun character to play in both roles.

Following the quick guide I posted here you will do a nice job with him in both roles.

Ratatoskr just want to ask to hirez...

If you have doubt about a solo rat, see this!
