Hello Armies. Mr. Frog HUBient is here and today we are here to give you another Smite God Spotlight. And today we’re going to feature one of the most ranked and banned picks in Smite Fenrir
Fenrir was one of the less prominent picks during this Season. He didn’t show much in his jungle role because the jungle was dominated by picks like Mercury, Erlang Schen, Ne Zha and Ao Kuang. He has been able to see some playtime towards the end of the season in support roles and as a solo tank-assassin. Fenrir is now one of the most ranked and banned picks, as well as HRX qualifiers.
Fenrir is a great support and solo lane player. He excels at high pressure, poke and damage, as well as being stunable with his first ability, ‘Unchained.’ At 5 runes, it can stun for 1 second. This can be enough to make the Support active or Purification beads useless, or to allow your Hunter to lob a lot of poke on the enemy. This is combined with the fact it is easy to increase Fenrir’s passive, and you have a dangerous snowball lane. This combination allowed the Hunter and Fenrir to move ahead. Fenrir players should ensure that you have at least 5 runes applied before you jump to get the stun off. This is unless you’re jumping to escape from or to secure the kill. Fenrir’s second ability, Seething Howl, is another part of his support pre-level 5. Because his second ability doesn’t activate his runes upon activation, he can sustain in lane and not burn through his runes.
Post-level 5, Fenrir’s ultimate ability, Ragnarok, means that he can CC a god and carry them back into your own team (or the tower). This is very good for an early gank onto the enemy support (forcing either an CC immune ability to dodge Fenrir’s ultimate or allowing the kill onto the enemy support) or a kill onto the enemy Hunter if you have combined it with the stun on Unchained to force the enemy Hunter’s Purification Beads.
Fenrir can be used as either a tanky Warrior, or as full support depending on enemy team composition. This usually starts out with Guardian’s Blessing (though Warrior’s Blessing can also be used), Warrior, Reinforced, or Talaria Boots (for Damage, Tankiness or Speed respectively), and then into support items such as Sovereignty, Heartward, and optional items for the specific game. Lono’s Mask (or the Tier 2 version Protector’s Mask) is also a common purchase for the stats it provides.
So, That’s all for Fenrir! Which Smite God should I do next? Let me know in the comment box below. Be sure to subscribe to get the latest updates from this channel. Thank you armies and see you next one.
