Jormungandr Guide

When picking Jormungandr, your primary goal is to dominate the solo lane and be an unkillable disruptor in team fights. Jormungandr has insane base damage, sustain, and durability that allows you to pressure nearly any opponent in the solo lane and survive diving the enemy backline in team fights.

In the solo lane, focus on clearing the minion wave with your first ability and look to harass the enemy with basic attacks and your second ability whenever possible. Your kill potential is low early, so just farm and gain pressure. Rush Breastplate of Valor for cooldown reduction and mana, then build full tank. My core items are usually Boots, Breastplate of Valor, Void Stone, and Mystical Mail. This provides maximum cooldown reduction, good damage, and a plethora of tanky stats.

Your role in team fights is straightforward: cause chaos. Look to land a tremendous ultimate ability on their middle laner or attack damage carry to defeat them, then use your third ability to fear the rest of their team. While your ultimate ability is on cooldown, spam your first and second abilities on any squishy target in range and body block enemy abilities with your enormous model. Your passive ability reduces healing, so make sure to hit abilities on all enemies. Keep the enemy preoccupied and make space for your damage dealers to perform.

Jormungandr dominates Joust and Arena using this same playstyle. In Joust, focus the red buff and pressure the enemy under their tower. Build full tank and some damage like Spear of the Magus. In Arena, ultimate enemies as soon as the match starts and spam your abilities on cooldown. You want to draw focus while your team collapses on the enemies you crowd control.

The key to Jormungandr is staying alive to maximize disruption. Farm safely in solo, build tanky, and destroy enemy backlines in team fights. Jormungandr has a simple yet extremely effective set of abilities when used properly. Focus objectives, get kills with your ultimate ability, and make the enemy team despise fighting into you. Jormungandr is one of the strongest guardians in SMITE when played by an experienced solo laner, so get out there and cause chaos!

Jormungandr can work well in the jungle role with his high damage and ganking potential. Start with Assassin’s Blessing, health and multi potions. Build tanky with a bit of damage like Spear of the Magus. My usual build is Assassin’s Blessing, Shoes of Focus, Breastplate of Valor, Void Stone, Spear of the Magus and Mystical Mail. This gives you max CDR, good damage to squishies and tankiness.

Focus on clearing buffs and camps quickly with your 1 and 2. Gank when your ult is up for easy kills. Look to ult the mid or ADC, then fear the remaining enemies with your 3. Spam 1 and 2 while body blocking shots. Your passive reduces healing, so hit all enemies with abilities.

Jormungandr is a guardian that, when played correctly, can dominate in any game mode. Focus on disruption, damage, and tanking damage for your team. Secure objectives, get kills, and be as annoying as possible. Build based on your needs and have fun dealing damage and destroying opponents.
