Hello Armies. This Mr. Frog HUBient. I am here to give you another Smite God Spotlight. And today we’re going to feature one of the many assassin gods you can pick from in Smite, Arachne.
Arachne is a very aggressive jungle god. Arachne can be used to either dive into a lane and get a kill or to simply run around the map farming jungle camps and using her healing ability to keep herself alive. Then she will gank whenever a lane is available. The blink ruin relic is a good choice for those who prefer a more aggressive start point. The relic allows you to jump into a lane and use Arachne’s spiders to slow down gods. After that, her cocoon will allow you to remove them with her venomous bite ability. Purification beads are her first relic if you prefer to be more cautious.
There are plenty of choices available when you go to the latter part of the game. A belt of frenzy can be used to get you right in the middle of battle, taking down the gods. You can also use a horrific emblem to slow down enemies. It’s a great way to stop them from attacking you like Poseidon or Thanatos. Bracers of Undoing is another option. You might still have problems with it if you aren’t able to activate it before your death.
Here are Arachne’s abilities. Predator is Arachne’s passive ability. Arachne’s basic attacks gain 1.5% physical damage for every 55% of a target’s health. Venomous bite is 1st ability. Arachne activates its next Basic Attack within 5s. It inflicts the target with Venom and does additional damage. Arachne can heal Arachne every 0.25 seconds for 3 seconds. Cocoon is the 2nd ability. Arachne spins the webbing of her body, and her next 3 Basic Attacks are executed using an increase in Attack Speed for 6s. If all three Basic Attacks hit the exact same target, then that target is Stunned. Web is the third Ability. She can move a line of Web forward. She is impervious to slowing down and can move faster through the Web. If the Web hits its maximum range, a Web trap is set. Arachne revealed that the Web trap slows down enemy gods. Arachne has a limit of three active Web traps. NightCrawler is her ultimate. Arachne flips over to her infinite Web, hanging upside down above the lanes and increasing her movement speed. She can jump off the web to do damage to all opponents in the target area. Arachne has the same slow enemies and benefits as her Web Trail. The web area offers the same slow to enemies. Arachne might activate Ability 1 & 2 while running on the web.
Arachne was one 17 playable gods that SMITE had when it was released in closed Beta. Arachne (and Ymir) were the first non-god characters to Smite.
That’s all for Arachne! Which Smite God should I do next? Let me know in the comment box below. Join our discord at discord.gg/hubient to get more updates about any games, tournaments and announcements. Again this is Mr. Frog and catch you next one.
