Smite Thanatos Build

Smite Thanatos Build

Thanatos is a bit of an emo god, let’s be honest. He doesn’t like being immortal. He likes to hang out with the dead and dying. He probably listens to emo music while he longs to die. Still, he’s known to be interested in the Smite universe, since gods fall like mortals.

Thanatos is a great character to have in your rotation, which will allow you to win at times when you might not have expected it. Thanatos is an assassin like Thor and Ratatoskr.  We’ve summarized the best the net has to offer on Thanatos builds for you. Try them out and let us know how your stats improve (or don’t). The melee, a physical assassin is a good asset to any team. You need to build him right.

Thanatos Basic Build

Many players like to keep things simple for Thanatos.  Warrior Tabi, Hide of The Urchin, Jotunn’s Wrath, and the last three as Breastplate of Valor, Pestilence, and Titan’s Bane. The order depends on the way the game is going. You need to pay close attention and to make decisions quickly.


Using this basic build, you’ll be able to use Thanatos’ Assassin abilities well. Time things perfectly and you’ll probably win! Probably. Make sure that you have a good coach if you’ve never played before, and ignore people who just want to mess around. No time for that business. You need to get good.

Thanatos Jungler Build

Some people are finding a winning build as a jungler with Thanatos. You’ll need Warrior Tabi, Jotunn’s Wrath, Hide of the Urchin, Breastplate of Valor, Bulwark of Hope, and Titan’s Bane. This is a great build for a newb, and you should work hard to get better. Thanatos is an Assassin with loads of abilities that will help any team, so build your build (haha) with precision and don’t mess around.


Thanatos Hunt Em Down Build

Some players prefer a tougher build. You’ll need Valor, War Tabi, Jotunn’s Wrath, Bulwark, a surprise late Transcendence, and Urchins. This build has a good supply of everything, mana included. You will be able to kill off the team one by one. Work hard and play hard. This one is a competitive build.

Thanatos Urchin Build

No, not a founding in London. Start with Hide of the Urchin and add Warrior Tabi, Jotunn’s Wrath, Hydra’s Lament, Titan’s Bane, and Frostbound Hammer. A lot of people don’t run Hydra’s in general but this is a good animation canceling build. Use your extra basics here

Thanatos Experimental Build

It’s a little untested, but it might just work. Try out the items in this order: Transcendence, Warrior Tabi, Jotunn’s Wrath, Mantle of Discord, Ancile, and Frostbound Hammer. This is a costly build and might not quite work. What can you add to this build to make it better? We know that our readers are great and able Smiters, so help us to figure out a way to make this work.

With this build, you should be able to make the most of the Assassin abilities of the character. The Transcendence settles things up right off the bat, and the Frostbound Hammer is deadly. You just have to get to that part of the game. How do you hold out in Smite with an experimental build? It’s a hard thing to do, but it’s part of the fun.
