Full Crits Build

Notes Ornate Arrow insane item for ADCs in late game. Gives you a lot of attack speed, critical chance and basic attack damage. If you decide to go critical chance build, this starter must be on it.

Devourer's Gauntlet is essential on an basic attack damage build because it gives you flat penetration, power and lifesteal (you always need sustain as a hunter).

Envenomed Executioner is a cheap item that enables you to decrease enemies' protections when you hit them with an auto attack and good attack speed stats. Later in lategame you should evolve it to the envenomed because it will decrease enemies healing and shields when they get hitted by an auto.

Full Cowl Build

Notes Leader's Cowl is insane for team fights in late game because it gives you attack speed in area for your teammates and will provide you with lifesteal (sustain), 250 health that can make a difference between surviving or not, good amount of power and an incredible attack speed stat.

Devourer's Gauntlet is essential on an basic attack damage build because it gives you flat penetration, power and lifesteal (you always need sustain as a hunter).

The Ferocious Executioner is a cheap item that enables you to decrease enemies' protections when you hit them with an auto attack and good attack speed stats. Before selling the recipe you should always look to upgrade this item into the glyph because of the strong passive that it has for killing tanks and solo laners.

Dominance provides you with the essential stats that a hunter needs: attack speed, power, mana sustain and an incredible penetration percentage on basic attacks.

Qin's Sais you should always buy this item because of its passive, it is really strong for killing supports and solo laners (tanky gods).

Fail-Not provides you with multiple insane stats like critical chance, penetration, CD and power. It is also good because having some critical chance will be essential for late game fights and more important, doing more DPS to objectives like Fire Gigant, Gold Fury or Pyromancer.

Temporal Beads provides you with immunity to CC and cooldown reduction.

Aegis of Judgement provides you with immunity to damage that will help you peeling yourself and avoid enemies' ultimate skills or big damages.

This build is meant for competitive because your enemies are supposed to be in communication and playing smart so you will be in most of the cases only hitting tanks or junglers that are trying to kill you. Most of them will have more than 200 hundred physical and magical protections and more than 3000 HP so you will need to have bought penetration items for being able to kill them as quick as possible.

Attack Speed Choices

Notes Griffonwing Earrings is the best choice for dueling against the other ADC because it gives you a lot of power and attack speed. I would really recommend it to buy it as second item before Executioner ---> instead of Qin's Sais.

Odysseus' Bow is pretty cool for farming damage and dealing high amount of damage during team fights in late game. The only problem that it has is that it doesn't provide of any power stat so you will have less DPS.

Silverbranch Bow it provides you really good stats like attack speed, penetration and physical power. The most important thing about this item is the passive, when you hit 2.5 attack speed, every 0.1 plus over the attack speed cap gives you 3 power. I would really recommend to build this item with hunters that have attack speed booster in their skill set. This item should be bought in late game when you are able to cap the attack speed.

Qin's Sais you should always buy this item because of its passive, it is really strong for killing supports and solo laners (tanky gods).

Penetration Choices

Notes Atalanta's Bow provides you with physical penetration, good power and a lot of attack speed. If you want to buy it against gods with slow you should always buy it instead of Fail-Not.

Titan's Bane it is always a good choice if you need more penetration in your build but I think it is enough if you have bought Executioner and Dominance.

Fail-Not provides you with multiple insane stats like critical chance, penetration, CD and power. It is also good because having some critical chance will be essential for late game fights and more important, doing more DPS to objectives like Fire Gigant, Gold Fury or Pyromancer.

Actives

Notes Fortifying Shell is a strong option when the enemy team has an auto attack jungler like Mercury, Kali or Bakasura... instead of buying Aegis as second active (mitigations will save your life while you can use autos).

Introduction

Hey, this guide is brought to you by TottiGR! I started playing Smite on PC in February 2014. I have been playing competitive since 2016 and I have been a professional Smite player between March 2020 to July 2023. I have played in different teams like JustF6, Gilded Gladiators or Tartarus Titans this last year in the Smite Pro League (You can always check the SmiteVod Youtube Channel where there's my proffesional games recorded). I have peaked 3500 MMR GrandMaster/Masters in Ranked Conquest on PC plataform every season since 2017 (SEASON 4). I also made Smite Masters (LAN) 4 times in 2022 so I really think I have the knowledge in guiding about the ADC role in SMITEGAME. I hope you find this guide as a useful learning resource for playing Xbalanque as an ADC.


Here are my socials:

Abilities

Xbalanque's Abilities


Passive - Dead of Night

Xbalanque's passive. Always hit your enemies as much as possible to stack it. Free power is always good!


Ability 1 - Branching Bola

Braching Bola is going to be your main clear ability with this GOD. You can always poke enemies if they stand closer to the minion wave or clear the wave through them with the help of this skill

At higher levels, and especially if you don't get Griffonwing Earrings, don't forget to take care of your mana sustain with this ability during long team fights or when walking around because you can always get out of mana during tough situations that can cost your life.


Ability 2 - Poison Darts

Your main fighting skill. If you hit the skill, enemies will get slowed down and this will help you out connecting auto attacks on them or even escape in case you need to. As closer as you get to the enemy it will be easier to hit more darts that will deal more damage over the enemies.


Ability 3 - Rising Jaguar

Xbalanque's main escaping or chasing ability. It is a dash that will make you inmune to CC's while casting it and can be used ofensively or defensively depending on the situation, it damages enemies that invade the area where xbalanque is!


Ultimate - Darkest of Nights

Apart from the blind that provides to the enemies, you can akways use this as a way to escape from enemies due to the increased movement speed or to more quickly reach a far target.

REMEMBER: This ability can be used to start a gank in another lane for a more effective surprise effect that it causes over the enemies!


Example Combos:

Branching Bola (Basic Attacks) > Poison Darts > Rising Jaguar > Darkest of Nights > Basic Attacks

Poison Darts > Branching Bola > Rising Jaguar > Darkest of Nights

Darkest of Nights > Branching Bola > Poison Darts > If needed you should always look to use Rising Jaguar for chasing the enemies or escaping!

How To Play Xbalanque

Gameplay Start / Early Game:
  • Start at the Gold Fury side Green buff. When it spawns, hit it with an auto attack to leash/aggro the camp and pull it towards the exp camp, meanwhile the support deals damage to the camp, after doing both things, you two will go to the purple buff, do it and then come to lane to push the minions.

  • After these camps are cleared you will be level 2 so will level up your dash Rising Jaguarand you will have an skill that can be used for escaping or for starting a duo lane fight.

  • After pushing 3 wave, shield buff will spawn so your support and you will go for it depending of the pressure wave; if you have no wave pressure you will need to ask your jungler for coming to fight it or just leave it, but if you have hardly won the push of the wave you should use your attack speed shard to do it as quick as possible, for securing the buff you should always maintain your Poison Darts available. Anyways, I do recommend as a hunter that if someone comes to contest, you should always try to fight them instead of securing the buff because you have a really good god for early fighting.

  • After picking it up make your way back to the centre of the lane. If you think it's going to be hardly difficult to secure the buff, just run back into the lane and pressure the enemies by pushing the wave quickly.

  • As Xbalanque try always to look to poke the enemies by hitting minions with your Branching Bola activated, this will poke them and will make win the lane pressure and give you the chance of invading enemie buffs.

  • From here you will usually fight the enemy ADC and support during wave pushes in lane with your own support. Most of the fights you should take are around shield buff and depending on yours and their early pressure/clear around your own purple buff or theirs (remember you can pull the Purple buff wherever you want so if you have no pressure / you are low hp ask your support to be in the pit before it spawns and tell him to leash it as far as needed to not get invaded by the other duo lane)

  • This hunter has a really good fighting kit of skills so you should be always looking to fight 1vs1 the other ADC (if you are ahead). Don't try to risk your life so you can poke the enemy ADC from the distance by using Branching Bola in the enemy hunter and then trying to hit the Poison Darts this will poke him out and easily convert him into an easy kill for your teammates. I need to clarify that if you don't wave any wards spotted on the map remember you should always take care of it. Just be confident during laning phase, your confidence will play a really good paper on succeeding, so just try it out. If you don't risk you will never achieve :p.

  • An important advice as an ADC main is to be active in communication, always try to tell all the information you can to your team like your own purple, shield and their purple timer (if possible), if there is any one spotted in the wards you placed, if someone is trying to dive you, if they are doing Gold Fury... This type of information will make your jungler and support pathing to gank your lane easier and make you having bigger chances of getting a lead over the other hunter.

  • REMEMBER to always buy wards, warding correctly with aggressive Sentry Wards will determine half of the game around the Gold Fury objective and warding defensively will make you be more aware about possible ganks so you will be safer in lane.

Mid Game:

  • As the match goes towards the mid game, other than the usual farm opportunities you'll be looking to rotate over the Stygian Beacon for your team and try attempt, contest and steal (if the enemy is attempting to kill them) the Gold Fury.

  • Remember to rotate when there is no duo jungle remain like purple or shield buff and to have the wave pushed before rotating because you will fall much behind in farm compared to your enemy ADC. (DO NOT ROTATE IF YOU ARE 2 OR MORE LEVELS BEHIND THE OTHER HUNTER!)

  • When the Beacon spawns often both teams will try rotate over to control it, especially the mid, support and jungle. You will need to think about who is more likely to have their teammates to rotate over first to impact your decision if contesting the beacon will be worth it and if there is any kill potential around the objective.

  • As for Gold Fury opportunity they will vary on factors such as: your team's overall objective shred, your ADC's current objective shred / build, your team's map pressure, how strong each team's teamfight is, where on the map everyone is (i.e. if one team is doing Gold, the other may decide to do Pyro as a smaller trade), if any members of the enemy team are on a respawn timer, etc...

  • It is so important to have warded (with Sentry Wards if possible) the Gold Fury during the Mid Game because it is the principal objective between minute 10 to 20 with the Pyromancer.

  • Stay aware of rotations (jungle and support) during this minutes because your death as ADC will be a really good factor over pulling Gold Fury or even burst it. So your team won't have any chance of contest.

  • Not dying over rotations, map awareness and warding are highly important over the games. You will always need to position yourself beside de midlaner for peeling each other over team fights (call who is doing engage on you, relics and this type of stuff that is going to make an easier way to make your team win the team fight)


Late Game:
  • As for late game teamfights, most often you will be positioned in the "backline" (behind your team's solo and support - who generally are the "frontline") and will play around your midlaner to deal with the enemy frontline and jungler, while making sure to put out as much damage as possible to the highest threats on the enemy team.

  • Make sure you have upgraded Temporal Beads and Aegis of Judgement before going into the Fire Giant. I really good advice is to use actives as soon as the solo laner, support or jungler engages on you to try to avoid as much damage and crowd control as possible, if you stay safe as an ADC on a late game teamfight, your team will have enough DPS to do Fire Giant or if you kill all your enemies, you can even finish the game.

  • When it comes to Fire Giant opportunities, often there can be stalemates where both teams will try to force a teamfight or look for lone picks in order to gain an advantage, sometimes involving one team going for a non fully committing attempt at doing the objective to bait the other team to step up.

  • Remember if someone engages on you, use Poising Darts on him, this will slow them out and help you killing him, then use your ultimate Darkest of Nights to blind all the enemies so they will be force to run or do time while they cannot see anything so you and your teammates will have an easy chance of killing them by taking advantage of this situation. THIS HAS A LOT OF VALUE FOR YOUR TEAM OVER THE LATE GAME TEAMFIGHTS AROUND OBJETIVES OR STRUCTURES!

  • BE CONSTANTLY CALLING ALL THE INFORMATION: WHEN THEY ARE ENGAGING ON YOU, BE ALWAYS SURE ABOUT YOUR DECISION MAKING, IF YOU DOUBT YOURSELF OR EVEN YOUR TEAMMATES YOU WILL NEVER SUCCED!

How To Ward As ADC

Low Pressure Warding:

Here are warding spots for ADCs if you are behind with gold or experience compared to the other hunter. If the enemy team has your purple timer you should always try to Sentry Wards your purple buff and make sure to call your teammates at least 1 minute before spawning.


In case you have low pressure god but none is invading purple you can also ward like in the photo below. You will always know when someone is coming and you won't have to outposition yourself to ward so you will be safe.


Normal Pressure Warding:

Over here is shown the ideal normal pressure warding spots around duo lane, you should always look to Sentry Wards defensively and use a normal ward on the offensive position. Enemies could Sentry Wards your normal ward so you should call your support for warding there.


High Pressure Warding:

In case you have a high pressure duo set up (hunter with good clear and fighting capability and a support with crowd control, push and mobility) you should look to invade purple buffs. This type of wards will make an easier way for you and your teammates to come over purple pit before spawning and being ready for stealing it [you will always know who is coming to gank you so you must be prepared for getting ganked over duo] .


Late Game Warding:

When you start fighting around Fire Giant, you should always look to ward in the same places as a midlaner because you two (ADC and Mid) form what we call as "backliners" (the roles who are supposed to deal DPS and damage to enemies), you will be sharing the responsibility for this rather than handling it alone, especially when it's not safe for you to step up to place deeper wards. Any wards placed closer to the objective within the Fire Giant pit tend to get destroyed by Sentries more often than not, so they tend to not be reliable.

Remember, minions act as moving wards in the lanes, and are able to spot nearby gods. If your towers are down, keep your minions pushed up as much as possible to provide an extra set of eyes and pressure.


  • White Circles: These are all offensive locations that allow you to spot enemies near to or approaching objectives, and are helpful in covering multiple approaches. The closer you get to the Fire Giant, the more contested those spots will be and the more likely enemies will try to counter-ward. The ones closest to the enemy base can give you very early notice.

  • Red Circles: Fairly obvious, but it's always good to have vision on the main jungle objectives, especially the Fire Giant. Sentry Wards are key here, as they allow you to spot and remove enemy wards. You can place wards directly on top of the objectives, or put them slightly to one side to try to spot enemy wards or protect yours from being detected.
Counter-Warding: Enemies may drop wards on your defensive side in similar (opposite) spots to where you would place yours. If the Fire Giant is already covered and you have a spare Sentry Ward, place them in these spots to limit the enemy's vision on your team.

Defensive Warding: If you're pushed back to your phoenixes or inside your base, locate your wards in the nearby jungle and general approaches.
