Build Summary

Starting items

Notes It is optimal to go for Bumba's Dagger as it gives you health and mana from killing jungle monsters. Being The Crusher is your next item, this will ease clearing camps and taking on early game fights.


Susano's kit is 'mana hungry' which is evident in the early game so prioritizing sustain, you set yourself up for an exciting end game build.

Full Pen (Late Game Focused)

Notes This build takes full advantage of Susano's kit. It is, in my opinion, a great all rounder for Damage, Penetration and Burst.

Brawler's Beat Stick is your anti heal item, also offering flat pen. Interchangeable with other items in 'Items to Consider'.

Susano's Skill Order Notes Starting with your 3 first is a good way to deal damage over time to lane minions or the other enemy mid and jungle, it is also your teleport, which is useful if you are contesting mid lane from level 1 as you may need a quick escape. Despite the 1 having a dash too, the 3 if still more favorable as you can deal damage from a distance.

3 B
Susano throws forward a gust of air which creates a whirlwind, dealing damage every 0.75s for 3s. He may activate this ability again to teleport to the whirlwind.

If the initial gust hits an Enemy, the whirlwind surrounds and travels with them, and teleporting to the Enemy reduces this cooldown to 10s.

4 Y
Susano summons a hurricane at his location, creating a Vortex that drags enemies towards the center while growing to up to twice its size, increasing the damage as it grows. Upon reaching full size, the storm is launched in the direction he is facing, knocking up opponents in its path. Susano may re-activate this ability early to fire the storm at its current size for reduced damage. If fired at less than half of its maximum size, he also foregoes the knock-up.

Ability Type: Line
Max Damage: 235 / 300 / 365 / 430 / 495 (+125% of your Physical Power)
Range: 70
Cost: 80 / 85 / 90 / 95 / 100

Core Items

Notes These two items synergize with Susano very well.

    -
The Crusher most importantly offering increased attack speed and penetration. Two things Susano benefits highly from.

Note: Crusher synergizes well as his kit is combo based.


Hydra's Lament is a great choice for a few reasons.

- Bonus basic attack damage after using abilities, extra cooldown and %penetration.

As 'Auto Attack Canceling' or AA Canceling 'In-between Abilities' is how you can unleash a large amount of damage.


- MANA! Susano is an combo heavy god, and Mana hungry.

Items like Transcendence negate the early game mana problem by increasing your mana pool tenfold.

Items to Consider

Notes Transcendence Great if you don't want to worry about mana and want some cooldown.

Jotunn's Wrath Cost effective item for Cooldown Reduction if you wish to get abilities out more often.
- It Can also be further upgraded into a glyph, either
Jotunn's Cunning or Jotunn's Wrath

Arondight is great if you look to initiate more fights yourself or have great follow up when in a team fight. Also provides extra Cooldown

Relics

Notes Blink typically bought first every time eventually upgraded into 'Scorching Blink Rune' for bonus damage.

Beads used against gods such Ares or Ymir, whose abilities or ultimate's stop you from getting away and possibly killed. Upgrade into 'Temporal Beads' to offer extra cooldown in sticky situations.

Aegis is a niche relic for Susano as he is a great escape artist. Buy this if the enemy team has a Thanatos or Ao Kuang as this will stop them from performing their 'Execute' on you. Upgraded into 'Aegis of Acceleration' because getting away as fast as possible is your best bet.

Quick Summary

Susano, God of The Summer Storm.

Hi, everyone. Welcome to my guide for Susano, God of The Summer Storm.

My name is TonyPolony, or Tony for short.

I'm a casual Smite player who mainly plays conquest and more recently been playing in the Jungle role, specifically as Susano.

Hopefully, this guide can provide you with some helpful tips and moderate guidance to either help get you started with Susano or bring some light to his unique kit and playstyle.

There aren't many up to date guides for Susano at this point, so I thought I'd give it a go! Being my first attempt at making a guide, I would love to know what you guys think.

Please feel free to make any suggestions or tips to help make this guide one of the better ones out there as Susano can be perceived as one of the more 'difficult' gods to play.

This guide is a work in progress and will be updated as often as possible.
