    Which Gods can play the ADC role?

    I've never really understand which Gods can, is it a case of if they can carry then you can in theory play them ADC or is it if they're auto attack based?

    Also I read that Gods which have good clear and damage can be used, so does this mean unconventional picks that have those could be used? Say Nu Wa, Poseidon etc

    Anyone in the Hunter role, Chronos and Freya.
    But you can pick pretty much anything in casual matches.

    Why is Freya more viable than say Nu Wa though? They both do a lot of damage but Nu Wa is better at destroying objectives

    Because freya does basic attack damage, and freya can blow people up late game. Nu wa has to land abilities that are on cool downs, while there really isn't much of a cool down for basic attacks.

    Alsom besides the main hunters, Freya, Chronos, Vulcan, and Loki can play the arc role, thats what we have seen in the SPL at least.

    In Smite, "Hunters" fill the ADC role. I play mostly arena so I can only give you my perspective on that in regards to Freya and Nu Wa. Nu Wa is definitely a better wave clearer as she can do it with one move. Towards end game, Freya does not have too much trouble wave clearing though because her damage is increased, although it's still not as quick or efficient as Nu Wa. I don't know what you mean by objectives (buff camps, towers, phoenix, etc?) but I would argue that Freya takes those down much faster than Nu Wa can. Freya is a burst mage and her damage vs single targets is pretty nuts at end game. In arena, taking out the mobile siege tower with Freya is much quicker than with Nu Wa. Both are good mages but I think Freya's kit is more viable. To stun, Nu Wa has to use 2 abilities whereas Freya can just banish. Freya also has a self banish with her ultimate to get her out of sticky situations whilst providing decent damage. When I play Nu Wa in arena, wave clear is my #1 priority and then kills. When playing Freya, kills are my #1 priority and then wave clear is secondary. As for conquest mode, idk but I'm pretty sure Freya is a beast in that game mode too.

    I feel like Nu Wa takes down towers alot quicker than Freya does. I'm just trying to understand why certain Gods aren't played in that role even though they have great clear and damage

    I would argue that Freya out damages Nu Wa vs single targets (bursting). Nu Wa has great AOE damage though, no doubt and her overall damage caused to players and creeps at the end is likely higher than Freya's. That's why I play Nu Wa in a wave clear/support capacity and Freya as a burst mage. Both are fantastic mages so you can't go wrong with either choice. I just like Freya more than Nu Wa because I find her kit more fun.

    I'm not denying Freya as being super powerful, I'm just curious why we all go along with the idea that mainly hunters can perform in that role. Aslong as you have good clear and damage can't you effectively play any God to some extent?

    A carry is at their best end-game. Once they have items they wreak havoc on anyone unfortunate enough to get in their range. They have amazing consistent damage, are not cooldown reliant and can stay at a safe distance. The carry isn't there to push towers early game, they're there to ensure your teams victory once the game drags on. At least that's how I would define the carry role.

    Short answer:
    ADC = Attack Damage Carry
    ADC's main damage output relies on auto-attacks. They are ranged Gods. That is why hunters are the most common ADC choice. Freya and Chronos' main damage output also comes from auto-attacks, that is why they are fit for ADC role.
