    Thoughts on Skadi?

    Skadi is rather underplayed yet seems to be a fun god. Why is it everyone thinks she is so weak that she is never played? I always seem to do well with her and have over 20k player damage and more often than not over 6k structure damage. Her ult combos well with some gods (Odin,Hades,Bakasura,etc) and beats down others rather well (AMC, Artemis, Apollo). Thoughts?

    For Conq, it's because she lacks escape and has no strong CC and CC immunity.

    I love to play Skadi in joust and Siege, maybe clash.

    But overall there are better hunters than her.

    Well, i guess that makes sense. She is rather enjoyable on clash in my opinion. Haven't actually played her on Conquest yet. Too many people auto-lock and i tend to be the nice guy that runs as fill.

    It's mostly because she has no mobility. Me, I like to do Skadi mid as she can put up a very aggressive game early on and her combo can easily kill a squishy mage, with her drawbacks being no sustain, no mobility, and mana-hungry.
    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.

    her multiple nerfs had no absolute reason to be. dog doing only 90%? why even?
    root on an ult that doesnt even give cc immunity lesser than neith 1?

    all she has to help her get a way is her 3 as speed buff/light cc and his 1 to slow down someone but both are better as chase than escape.
    also the fact that the dog cant proc auto effects makes her lategame automatically weaker than every other adc cause like it or not the dog only gives a 45% dmg increase to skadi because of the halved attack speed

    I think she needs some nerfs reverted or some buffs given, the fact she has no CC immunity and no escape and doesn't get a huge movement speed boost like AMC makes things pretty difficult for her.

    I like Skadi. Skadi is great in joust, siege. Conquest not so much.

    Her problem in conquest is no escape (even artemis has MS buff), very mana hungry. Great in lane fights, sucks in jungle fights no leap to escape or to reposition. Ultimate only a root, is an ult you know, can't it be at least a root/cripple.

    Only time I see Skadi in conquest is when once in a blue moon I had to fill adc.

    I've been told "no brain" yesterday because I played her.

    Well, she's just the best backdoor char. She is REALLY strong. Build Crusher, Sneak, wait for minion wave and one tower/phoenix down...or more.

    She is pretty awesome, i mained her for a bit.

    She doesn't need any buffs, except i would like cc immunity on her 4, like some hunters have (Artemis, Anhur, Medusa, Jing Wei banishes herself and others) since she has no escapes. But that's it, mana issues are perfectly dealt with Transcendence and everything else comes naturally.

    Skadi may be underrated, but that's because people asked her nerfs, while she was released balanced. It's always like this in MOBAs.

    To be honest, a decent - good Apollo should be able to beat Skadi no problem. Since you're saying she's underplayed, I'm guessing you're talking about Conquest because in Duel, she is a top tier god and pretty cancerous. Well, not her, but Kaldr.

    The reason she's weak in conquest is simple: She relies on Kaldr a lot. Here's the thing though: Even though Kaldr is better than Skadi, he's way easier to kill. When you're in the duo lane, you're against a tank and a hunter/mage hunter. They can aa Kaldr before he can even reach that God, all the while getting help from their support. After that phase, the team fight comes in. In a team fight, Kaldr gets annihilated because of all the abilities and attacks thrown around. So, what's left? Basically her 1 and 3... Her 2 is Kaldr and her ult, well.... You need Kaldr to make it good.

    Also, she has no real means of escape and low mobility, even if she puts the ice patch underneath her, its diameter is too small to make much a difference.

    Sure, Artemis has no escapes; even less than Skadi, but she has a steroid (For Skadi, it's Kaldr), a root that cripples and a 3rd ability that slows. She has more CC and better too, plus her passive is really great late game. Oh, yeah, Skadi's passive is also Kaldr... So, there are 2 abilities, plus her passive that rely pretty much on Kaldr and 2 abilities that are for Skadi, but 1 of them giving a damage boost to Kaldr...

    That's why she's under played. Trust me though, in modes like Clash, Joust, Siege and especially duel, she's played quite a lot.

    Favorite Gods:
    Chang'e
    Ratatoskr
    Vulcan
    Osiris
    Awilix
    Hun Batz
    (Questions about these gods? Builds, tips, combos, mechanics? Message me and I'll help! Diamond Nemesis too, but I lost the fun in playing her, but I know pretty much everything about her.)

    Love playing gods with outplay potential and the ones that require skill. :3

    Panthera/NRG for the win.
