Thor, the God of Thunder, is a powerhouse jungler in SMITE with a kit that provides burst damage, crowd control, and mobility. Mastering Thor allows you to dominate matches through ganks, team fighting, and objective control.
Early game, focus on safe farming to hit level 5 quickly. At level 5, your ultimate Mjolnir’s Attunement comes online, allowing you to gank duo or mid lane. Look for chances to gank squishy enemies, stun them with your 1, and secure kills to build an early lead. Thor dominates the jungle, where he can farm fast and gank often. He also works in solo lane against less mobile gods. Thor fits into most team comps thanks to his flexibility and CC. The only comps he may struggle in are ones without magical damage or control.
To wreck with Thor’s abilities, land your 1 perfectly every time for maximum stuns. Blink helps with positioning. Use your 2, Berserker Barrage, to burst enemies after stunning them. Drop your 3, Wrath of Valhalla, to body block enemies or secure objectives. Your 1 and 3 provide crowd control to juggle enemies.
Your role is dealing damage, controlling team fights, and ganking frequently. Farm quickly, then gank solo, mid and duo lane. Get picks and objectives with your combo to snowball a lead. In mid-game team fights, stun key targets and disrupt enemies. Protect allies with your 3. Late game, catch enemies alone, sneak objectives and end the game.
Focus on building power, penetration, and CDR. Items like Jotunn’s Wrath, Brawler’s Beat Stick, and Transcendence allow you to spin more with your 2 and deal huge damage. Level your 2 first for lower cooldowns, high damage, and wave clear. Use your 2 offensively to burst enemies after stunning them, and defensively to spin away from danger while hitting enemies. Spin through waves and camps to clear fast and rotate.
In team fights, blink in and stun enemies with your 1 before spinning to deal massive damage. You can also spin to zone enemies or flee to safety. Your 2 provides movement speed to chase kills. With max CDR, spin frequently to maximize damage and mobility!
Thor dominates the jungle role thanks to his high burst damage, crowd control, and mobility. To jungle with Thor, focus on the following:
Build Bumba’s Mask and potions for sustain, then build power, penetration, and CDR. Items like Jotunn’s Wrath, Brawler’s Beat Stick, and Transcendence allow Thor to gank often and deal huge damage. The more power and CDR you have, the harder Thor hits and the more he can stun.
Level your abilities 2>1>3>4. Maxing Berserker Barrage first provides wave clear, lower cooldowns, and more damage per hit. You want to be able to spin as much as possible to clear camps and gank enemies. Mjolnir’s Attunement is your main ganking tool, so level it second.
Clear your red and blue buffs at the start, then look to gank solo, mid or duo lane. Thor has a strong level 2 gank with his 1 and 2. Blink into lanes, stun the enemy with your 1, then spin onto them with your 2 to deal massive damage. If no gank is available, farm to level 5 and gank with your ultimate.
Your ultimate, Mjolnir’s Attunement, deals high stun and displacement, allowing easy ganks on mages, hunters and other squishies. Gank regularly once you have your ult to build up an early lead and snowball. Even if you don’t get kills, relieving pressure from lanes allows your teammates to push towers.
Place wards in the enemy jungle and around objectives to track the enemy jungler and secure vision for your team. Control neutral objectives like Gold Fury and Fire Giant by warding around the pits and clearing enemy wards. Your 3 can be used to body block enemies from objectives.
