    low damage as athena

    I'm playing athena support and I am doing relatively low damage. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I know its not the role of support to do much damage, but I usually fall behind in damage with the enemy support. Even though Athena should have some decent damage in her kit.

    I think I know Athenas basic combos: pull em in with your 2 onto the damage of your 3 and throw a ranged attack at them. I did have the feeling that I was usually succesfull in that combo. But what else can I do? Should I worry about low damage or is it normal.

    You can see here an example of a game: http://smite.guru/match/pc/376441042 It was a game that I lost. The matchup was pretty good, the game took 45min so they didn't snowball. Although I had never the feeling that we could have won. So you can see there 10k dmg in a 45min game, thats not so good.

    What can I do.

    Bad build.
    If you want good damage, you must build Void Stone, Soul Reaver, Eternal Staff, Pen Shoes, Breastplate and Mantle of Discord.

    Sobek, Ymir and Kumbha for example can easily threat squishes with this while still being tanky.

    Well my goals isn't to have good damage, but to be a good support. So I choose supporting/def items. Do you think Athena support needs more offensive items?

    Its depend on your playstyle, I build bruiser supports all the time. You either supports team or kill enemies by yourself, both choices are reasonable(well, many players would not agree cause they want have cannon fodder support but its just their opinion). Choose what you like more.

    I do not really see Supports needing to do damage or get kills though it was fun for a while to do that with Ares.

    A good example is look at Ganesha, his Passive shows what being a Support is all about.

    All you need to do good damage is Void Stone and Pen Boots.

    Dash, auto, 2, auto, 3, auto, bodyblock them within your 3.
    What do I put here now?

    as athena i would suggest cdr boots to have taunt up more often. if your looking to do more damage celestial legion helm and/or void stone. getting pure offensive items gonna hurt your ability to frontline more then the damage is worth usually.

    Don't go full tank. Ever. Get pen, get CDR, and you'll actually contribute something to your team.
