If you are one of those gamers who just want the best characters for themselves and nothing else, then the characters from this Tier will suit you very well. It is observed that the characters from this Tier are so powerful that the other Tier characters have the least chance of standing in front of the SS Tier characters.
Odin – Odin goes by the title of All-Father and he is also known as a doomed god. Odin has an ability called Lunge in which he lunges to his target location, doing damage to all nearby enemies. Other abilities of Odin are Raven Shout and Gangnir’s Might, which gives him a great advantage over enemies. His ultimate ability called the Ring of Spears allows him to summon a wall of spears that allows him to block the movement of enemies.
|Character||Attack Type||Damage Type||Pantheon
|Cthulhu||Melee||Magical||Great Old Ones
This is the Top Tier of the characters and the characters in this Tier are really good and the best thing about the characters in this Tier is that you will love using this character in the game. There are various different choices available here that you can choose from.
Thor – A well-known character in the game as well as in the comic world, Thor is known as the God of Thunder and belongs to the Norse category. He has a Physical type damage and his attack type is Melee. He belongs to the Assassin class. His attack on Mjolnir’s Attunement allows him to destroy all the enemies in the path of his hammer, while he throws it at them. He also has abilities like Tectonic Rift and Berserker Barrage. His ultimate ability called the Anvil of Dawn works as after a short buildup, Thor jumps into the air and from there he can target a great distance and by coming down from there and can deal a lot of damage to the enemies in a certain radius.
|Character||Attack Type||Damage Type||Pantheon|
Though the characters in this Tier are a bit less powerful than the previous SS and S+ Tiers but are not the ones that should be taken lightly as they are very capable in their combat style. Being a character from the S Tier, they are highly recommended in the game.
Athena – The tagline of Athena in SMITE is “Reach forward and taunt the opposition. Teleport and support your allies.” This means that you can rely on this character in the game. Athena has the title of “Goddess of Wisdom” in the game and is a Greek character that has a fighting style in Magic as well as Melee. Athena has abilities like Preemptive Strike, Confound and Shield Wall. The ultimate ability of Athena is Defender of Olympus that helps her to deal a great deal of damage to the enemies that she lands in between them.
|Character||Attack Type||Damage Type||Pantheon|
The gods or characters from this tier as said by many are great and a safe pick to play so a lot of gamers prefer them. They are not as good as any of the S Tiers characters but preferably very well if you properly use them. The common meta is seen using them a great time.
Ares – Ares has the title of the “God of War” and belongs to the Greek Pantheon. He belongs to the Guardian class and his character type is Magical and also his combat style is Melee. His ability, Shackles, allows him to extend a chain from his Shield and that chain does a lot of damage to the enemies on the path that follows. He also has abilities like Bolster Defence and Searing Flesh that give him a lot of advantage in the game and his ultimate ability No Escape allows him to shackle the enemies around him and do a lot of damage to them.
- Baron Samedi
- Cu Chulainn
- Da Ji
- Erlang Shen
- Hou Yi
- Ne Zha
- Zhong Kui
Each character from this Tier has their specific use in the game. Though they are not the perfect ones if used properly, they can be a really useful choice. They are often seen in the Modern Meta but are not always optimal picks for their positions.
Achilles – Achilles is known as the “Hero of the Trojan War” and is a Greek pantheon. Achilles belongs to the Warrior class and he is a physically attacking character. His combat style is Melee and his Shield of Achilles ability allows him to inflict massive damage and stun his enemies with a huge impact. He also has abilities like Radiant Glory and Combat Dodge that are a great advantage to him. With his ultimate ability Fatal Strike, if he kills a God with it, he is allowed to use this ability 5 times.
- He Bo
- Hun Batz
- Sun Wukong
- The Morrigan
If we talk about the characters in the B+, the characters are still in a powerful phase but there is a slight kick to the situation. You need to have some skills to properly operate or manage these characters to win the game for you. Otherwise, they won’t be of much use to you.
Apollo – He is known as the “Gods of Music” and belongs to the “Greek” pantheon. He belongs to the Hunter class and is a “Physical” fighting character. He is also able to use Ranged attacks. His ability “So Beautiful” allows him to deal a great deal of damage to his enemies with just a single strike on his Lyre. He also has other abilities like “Serenade” and “The Moves”, which come in handy to him whenever it is required. His ultimate ability “Across the Sky” allows him to deal a great deal of damage to his enemies whenever he lands around them.
- Guan Yu
- Nu Wa
- Xing Tian
From this Tier onwards we are entering the lower phase where the character requires a good amount of help to function well in the game. The characters from this Tier require a good amount of skill, but opposite to this, they are not very fruitful as the B+ Tier characters are.
Anubis – An Egyptian character, Anubis is known as the “God of Dead”. Anubis belongs to the “Mage” class and is a magical and ranged character. The ability of Anubis known as “Mage of Locusts” allows him to spread a plague of locusts from his mouth that smothers all the enemies in the nearby area. Also, Anubis is immune to knockback while channeling. The other abilities of Anubis are Mummify and Grasping Hands. His ultimate ability “Death Gaze” allows him to focus all of his energy on a piercing gaze and this gaze does damage to the enemies that come in the path of the gaze.
- Ah Muzen Cab
If you are going for a competitive play then the characters from this Tier are not the ones that you should go for, preferably the characters from the Tiers above are the ones more suited for a competitive play and if you get any one of them, you should immediately go for the without giving a second thought.
Loki – One of the famous characters in the game and the comic universe but of not much use on the other hand. Loki is known as the “Trickster God” and belongs to the Norse Pantheon. He belongs to the Assassin class and has a Melee combat style. His fighting type is physical and his difficulty level is easy. His ability to Vanish allows him to disappear anytime in a puff of smoke. Also, when he is invisible, he moves faster and gains immunity to slow effects. His other abilities are Agonizing Visions and Flurry Strike. His ultimate ability to Assassinate allows him to teleport to his ground target location and if there is an enemy god in that particular radius, he is easily able to assassinate that god.
D Tier – This is considered the worst Tier that a character can be in the game. If a character in this Tier there is very little hope for him that he will stand a chance to fight in the game against the characters from other Tiers. If you are a SMITE player, then you should know that if you find a character in this Tier, you should always try to stay away from him. Luckily, the current season does not have any characters in the D tier and it is good news for every SMITE player out there.
- Luckily for players, none of the characters made it into the D tier this season.
