Notes Executioner is the last pick because you should only be focusing the squishy targets. It's part of the build for the anti-heal and gives you a bit of resistance to support.

Ishtar's Skill Order Notes Most of your damage will come from your Imbued Arrows, specifically the sniper arrows.
The reason I max out Imbue Arrows is to get that attack speed up on the sniper arrows.
In Arena, you will mostly be using your Rolling Thunder for the brief stun.

Ishtar draws her blades and charges forward, striking all Enemies in her path. If she hits an Enemy God, she stops and roots them for 1s as she backflips off of them.

Ishtar becomes CC-immune and summons five swords of light, firing them out in a cone in front of her. Each sword damages and cripples enemies for 1.25s. When the swords reach their destination, Ishtar may recall them to her location within 3s. If an Enemy is hit by both the initial fire and the recall, they are stunned for 1s. Each sword hit after the first deals reduced damage, resetting before recalling.

Extended Build

New Year, New items!

Hi guys! I don't often make builds for SMITE. In fact, this is my 2nd build I've ever made.
I love playing arena, and I decided I'd post the build I've been using here.
I'm able to consistently get over 40k damage done in a match with this setup.
If you have any tips regarding new items, let me know! I'm always down to try out new things.
