Serqet (Selket, Serket, Selqet, Selkit, Selkis) was a benevolent scorpion goddess. She was generally viewed as a protective goddess, but also had her darker side. Serqet was thought to have power over venomous snakes and scorpions, like Meretseger and Isis. It was thought that she could protect a person from venomous bites, and also that she could send snakes and scorpions to meet out punishment to those of whom she disapproved. She was originally worshiped in the Delta, but her popularity spread throughout the land and cult centres were established at Djeba (Edfu) and Per-Serqet (Pselkis, el Dakka). However, no temples specifically dedicated to her has been recovered.
According to some versions of the story, it is she who helps protect Isis and her infant son Horus when they are hiding from Set in the marshes of the delta. She is associated with the seven scorpions who act as a body guard for the mother and child and is sometimes named as the goddess who convinces Ra to stop the sun barque and help when Horus is poisoned by a magical snake sent by Set. Because of this story, she was thought to offer special protection to children and pregnant women from venomous animals.

Serqet is the goddess of venom and is a playable character in smite. She is an assassin and a jungler, and is more than proficient in bursting down even the tankiest of foes with her full kit. As of recently, Serqet is also very viable played tanky due to the percent damage passive, and true damage ultimate.
Good jungle and lane clear
Useful all game
True damage from ultimate
Full burst does lots of damage
High skill ceiling
Good in one on one situations
Requires sustained fighting to win trades
Not a very good boxer
With kit down, is potential food for fed enemies
Countered hard by cripples
Serqet has a kit that is full of mobility and burst, so lets hop right in.
Serqets passive is Catalyst. Serqet's 1,2, and 4 ability apply poisons that get consumed upon an auto attack. To utilize this passive to the fullest, don't AA inbetween abilities, like you would with Thor or Susano. Instead, apply all 3 poisons, then AA. This allows you to immediately deal 25% of the targets health post mitigation.
Serqet's first ability is Deathbane. This ability is a dash is expandable/retractable. This is not only an amazing escape, but it can hit 3 times if imed properly. It applies a poison, and reduces the enemies protection, which is useful for the second part of this ability, which is that it can critically strike. Max this ability first.
Serqet's second ability is Cobra's Kiss. This is a line attack that fires two blades in front of Serqet in a row. This ability taunts, and applies another poison, alike Deathbane. The good thing about this ability is that since
this ability shoots twice, if you miss the first shot you can re-position yourself and have another chance to taunt. Max this ability second.
Serqet's third ability is Ambush. This ability on activation cloaks Serqet, making her invisible to enemy players out of range. Serqet may stay cloaked until CC'd, or she leaps out of it. This ability does high damage on impact late game, and allows for some interesting ganks due to the high mobility. Max this ability last.
Serqet's ultimate is Last Breath. This is an extremely unique ability. Serqet becomes CC immune and latches onto an enemy. She then applies a poison, and throws them in the direction she is facing. This ability has true damage as well, meaning that their defenses will not block the damage from her ultimate. The ability also has 100% anti-heal. If the enemy dies, they explode and pass the poison to surrounding enemies.In an ideal situation, Serqet can be smart with her ultimate. You can ult enemy minions and throw them into a group on enemies, forcing them all to become poisoned if the minion dies.
In Serqet's kit, the ideal combo is 3,2,1,4, or just 2,1,4. Blink is a must buy on Serqet, since it gives her even more mobility, allowing her to blink in or out of dangerous situations.
This is my third build on this site, and there are many more to come. Be on the lookout for Susano and Awilix shortly. Comment any and all critiques you have. I play on Xbox and my GT is Hydraconic if anyone wants to play.
