Main Build Items

- Shoes of the Magi provides good early pen
- Bancroft's Talon pairs very well with Sorrow and is a huge core item, making it a must on every Anubis build
- Spear of Desolation is especially great on Anubis because when you use Grasping Hands on an enemy in a combo, they are almost certainly going to die, giving you additional CDR to use it again for poke. Akso high damage and good pen.
- Gem of Isolation is another core item on Anubis, pairs well with Plague of Locusts and Grasping Hands
- Chronos' Pendant is a standard mage item, high CDR lets you continually poke with Grasping Hands
- Typhon's Fang for me is a logical final step. It increases your lifesteal immensely with its passive and gives +60 damage with a full build

Playstyle

Really, you should be playing passively behind your tanks throughout the entire game. Use Grasping Hands for Minion clear and to harrass enemy Gods, use your combos on anyone out of position, and do your best to help secure kills and assist tanks/people up front

Tips:
-In my expierience, if the enemy team is squishy with only one tank, focusing your standard combo on them can keep them out of the fight or stop an engagement, disrupting the team even if you don't get the kill
- Grasping Hands on a minion wave with a full build will heal you for about 1/3 of your health
-If you're running away, throw Grasping Hands on yourself to deter and slow pursuing Gods

Combos

Standard combo: Mummify, Grasping Hands
Ultimate Combo: Mummify, Grasping Hands, Death Gaze
OR Grasping Hands, Mummify, Death Gaze (The slow helps you hit your skill shot, and your ult provides the damage)


Plague of Locusts is not ideal for combo attacks because it roots you, while lacking the damage of Death Gaze. I only use it for Minion clears if the enemy is far away, or if my abilities are down and I see someone low health around a corner-or something of that likeness.

Skill Sequence & Abilites

Sorrow-Sorrow looks complicated, but does 3 simple things. It reduces CC effects by 30%, and give you two types of stacks: Lifesteal and Protections Steal. Lifesteal Stacks at max stacks (3) basically doubles Anubis's LS (99%). Protection Stacks steals 7 protections from whoever you're damaging for 5 seconds, up to 3 stacks.

Plague of Locusts-Max this out second. I use it as a minion clear/LS heal source. Can be used to finish off low health enemies. As it's a damaging ability, build it before Mummify

Mummify-Max this out last. This is a skill shot and used to set up all combos. It does do much per level up, which is why you leave it for last.

Grasping Hands-Max this out first. This is your main source of damage, and often your killing move. It has great poke and a extremely useful slow. Your best ability.

Death Gaze-Build as it becomes available. It has a long range, does heaps of damage, and goes through walls making it very versitile.

Pros / Cons

Pros:
-High Poke Potential
-Can distrupt Teamfights
-Easy combos (If you hit Mummify)
-Can do Insane Damage
-Get to judge if people go to the Abyss of the Underworld

Cons:
-No Escape or Mobility
-Locusts and Ult immbobilze you
- Mummify is a skill shot
-Easy to Gank
-Afraid of Lawnmowers

You dont buy but instead you go for

Also cooldown aint work Anubis yet you still brought up Chronos Pendant

If you want to survive more. I dont think Anubis needs tank items. After all just 1 defensive item aint gonna save you from ganks, maybe could differ in 1 vs 1 situations but this is 5 v 5 teamfight mode. But if you're gonna buy one defensive item ? And then that one should be for preventing hard cc. Cuz you dont've any escape.

But imo, you have high sustain via your lifesteal and stun&slow combo .. Only thing you need is movement. Go for for 5th or 6th item.



could be good you could trade with if you want.

"Also cooldown aint work Anubis yet you still brought up Chronos Pendant" - But it does work on him? Obviously it shouldn't be the main focus but it's still a viable choice especially due to how vulnerable Anubis is.

" I dont think Anubis needs tank items. After all just 1 defensive item aint gonna save you from ganks, maybe could differ in 1 vs 1 situations but this is 5 v 5 teamfight mode." - I heavily disagree, Mantle can be very effective for Anubis in certain situations, also you can't really get "ganked" in arena.

"And then that one should be Magi's Cloak for preventing hard cc" - Oh Magi's can work, but not always, and it does nothing to help against burst (that isn't necessarily set up by CC), only Hard CC.

To be honest, if you're against a full team of squishies in arena, then with pen boots, deso and Anbuis' passive you don't really need magus. But usually I would recommend it as it means you can focus less on other pen items in the build, hence my suggested build at the bottom of that page.

You still could make use of magus. Get to dealing true damage faster. More valuable Especially at level 20, when enemies have their natural defenses.

Anubis' three damaging abilities are tick damage, meaning they do damage over time. Why wouldn't you get spear of the magus? Flat pen is great and all, but it's fairly useless against enemies that have over 100 protections (flat pen caps at 50).

Cooldown works fine for Anubis, especially when you consider this is for Arena. That's the big key here...Arena.

Definitely Magus is the important pen item, especially over Desolation. But in an Arena setting, you may need to worry less about sustain/focus, and thus Typhon's doesn't need to be built as early.

For your first build, it's good that you consider Spear of the Magus, as that item is core on him, even against squishies. Doing true damage to enemies boosts your DPS.
You can also consider this:
Bancroft's Talon, Shoes of the Magi, Typhon's Fang as your first three items. The insane lifesteal makes you a bit harder to kill and gives you a large power boost

For the second build, Void Stone is only something you should consider if you're getting high focus from a mostly magical enemy comp (and if your support isn't building it). Chronos' Pendant would probably be a better choice than Void Stone in that build. I'd get Rod of Tahuti as your last item.

Also, it's good to know that Potion of Magical Might or the mana buff both give 10% CDR. So just keep in mind it's OK to only build 30% CDR.

Anyway, good attempt. Have a +rep.

Thanks for everything. I actually learned about Potion of Magical/Physical Might a month or two ago, but haven't been putting it my builds. I always buy one or two late game to max CDR and give some damage-but it's good that it's mentioned in the discussion. Also, thanks for the rep! I honestly feel like I am getting more of a feel for SMITE and posting on SMITEFire so it means a lot when you say it's good.

Also, Dynasty Plate Helm and Celestial Legion Helm aren't good in Arena.
And if you need a defensive option, I'd get Warlock's Staff + Mantle of Discord.

boogiebass (37) | April 27, 2019 3:05pm
Forgot to mention: Be careful about the Warlock's Staff. Can get hard if you have more than 2 people, including yourself, trying to stack. But if it's just you and a hunter trying to stack, you'll be fine.

Why isn’t Celestial or Dynasty good in arena?

Get rid of soul gem in the second build, completely unnecessary to get that item on Anubis not to mention your build has triple lifesteal which is borderline troll.

Other than that, any other advice?

Swap place of chronos' pendant and spear of deso in the first build, add blink as an alternative/situational/non-standard relic. Add Shoes of Focus and Celestial Legion Helm/ Dynasty Plate Helm as alternative items. In second build swap Shaman's Ring for Rod of Tahuti unless you want the movement speed from Shaman's.

Could also possibly add a third build: Shoes of Focus, Bancroft's Talon, Spear of the Magus, Spear of Desolation, Mantle of Discord, Rod of Tahuti. Has 30% CDR and the much needed Mantle for safety due to lack of escape and his 1 being risky to use. Completely up to you though, of course.
