    kali attack speed vs damage

    What is your opinion, which is better on kali?
    The traditional build is attack speed with quins but her 3 gives her damage buff. I mean her attack speed is already pretty good and a rage+deathbringer combo would hit very hard with her 3.

    No, it wouldn't. I mean, her basic attack progression favors qin's. At best it's 16 % of enemys hp in 1sec of my math doesn't fail me.

    Build both Qin's and crit if you want to optimise Kali's damage output.

    I read somewhere on a guide in SmiteFire that Kali apparently does more damage on a full attack speed build with Qin's rather than crits.
    I wish I could find it, but it seems the guide had been removed.
    Actually back to Smite but my love for the forums isn't really the same anymore. May most likely not post god concepts again.

    Since forums are dying, feel free to join the official smite forum discord where most retired members chill.

    ... No, you build max attack speed and pen with qin's, not crits...

    Kali has a 1/0.5/0.5 speed attack chain, meaning she gets 3 hits in in as long as a god with equal attack speed gets two, the two fast hits do reduced damage of course, so they don't give an advantage with crits, but they do mean you hit more, and proc qin's more.

    Basically it's a 50% boost too how much she hits with qin's.
    They say the children are the future; when you look at a MOBA community, you know the future will be bleak.

    It's been tested and Qins + Crit is higher than Qin and AS

    i personally would prefer going full blender with attack speed. feels more fun.
    You may think all gods have huge amounts of courage, but only xbalanque has the balls to use them as weapons.

    0.3 instead of 30% again.
    dont skip school kids.

    Lots of people do, yes. But if you want more damage you should take out that Titan's Bane for Rage.

    There are a few benefits to the pen build. It's cheaper, gives her bleed more damage, and takes less reflected damage from Hide of the Nemean Lion and Shield of the Underworld. But it very clearly loses out when it comes to DPS.
