|Hey everyone, welcome to the SMITEFire Community guide to Hades. In this guide, we'll be going over all the essential info you'll need to get started with Hades.|
|Death From Below|
|Shroud of Darkness|
|Pillar of Agony|
|A great item that adds health, mana, and good protections of both kinds when fully stacked. Get this 3rd or 4th if you’re able to consistently get kills and/or assists.|
|You will be a tank but you are still vulnerable to CC. If you're against hard CC comps, this item may help you tank extra damage after you get CCed.|
|An alternative to Spirit Robe, it also provides equal protections and CDR, but with a focus of stunning enemies once you hit a certain health threshold. Great especially when fighting in close.|
|Great late-game hybrid function that steals health and mana from enemies. More helpful when targeting tanky enemies with high health.|
|Functional early anti-physical counter while providing some offensive function due to the power.|
|Build to provide protection against physical lane opponents, with a bonus of enhancing friendly minions to more effectively win your lane.|
|Not always suggested, but when physical enemies are a significantly higher threat and you also want CDR, this item fits the bill. Having strong CC in a silence / fear with a CD under 10 seconds can be game-changing.|
|Counters physical basic attackers by reflecting a portion of the damage they output back to them.|
|Also counters basic attackers, but has a bit more universal function as it provides health to help with magical damage. When hit by basics, it provides some control by slowing the movement and attack speed of the attacking enemies.|
|Physical protection and anti-heal to counter enemies with significant healing.|
|Magical protection and anti-heal to counter enemies with significant healing.|
|As a front-liner, you'll be expected to fight in the midst of multiple enemies. Provides good magical protection, while also providing mitigation against all incoming damage.|
|High CDR and very good synergy with this item's passive giving you a shield when you use your ultimate.|
|A great offensive anti-heal item that also has power and flat penetration.|
|Strong lifesteal enhancement and offensive function due to the % penetration. Great pairing with Bancroft's Talon, and can help partially counteract anti-heal from the enemy.|
|Adds burst damage potential to your abilities, and deals more damage to tanks.|
|This relic is Core to Hades. Hades only has Death From Below for mobility and this skill can be avoided. Blink lets you instantly be in front of your enemy and hit him with your skills and if he tries to escape you can use your jump, or if things get too hot you also can jump out.|
Play aggressively when possible. Hades has strong wave clear and insane poke damage early game, so use and abuse it, especially if the enemy walks into the minion wave.
At level 1, hit multiple enemies with your basic attack to apply Blight before using Devour Souls in the middle of the minions for clear function.
Hades is a secret counter to King Arthur because Shroud of Darkness can stop his spins. Strong early damage and sustain means a well-played Hades can snowball an Arthur.
This is the point of the game you are strongest. If you’re equal/ahead, play aggressively when possible to put the enemy on their heels.
Start to rotate and help your team with objectives.
Your strength falls off late-game. Your damage isn’t as strong because you usually will fight without minions around the enemy. Since you’ll be at least partially tanky, you’ll turn into more of a secondary tank. You can tank objectives, initiate teamfights to a degree, and force enemy relic use with your ult and Shroud of Darkness.
