Ardan Wup, down the nerf hole you go! He used to be a creep. Now he's downright pedo with the lack of protection. Plus, the ult is scoffable now if you time well.
4
Krul Surprised how he isn't given a nudge with an elbow we feel. Look it up and you'll get the typical "Kite, blah blah blah," Ugh.
4
Phinn This river troll might make you cringe, but hey, he's slow. Even we, as 2 made-up narrators are wayyy faster than this bad boy. Lose your bearings and you'll be stomped to death though. He shouldn't be jutting out of your butt but if he does, you're most probably getting up at his face to cuss, failing miserably.
4
Rona Since 1.11? I guess. Well...it's been like forever since I've even seen one try and play with this blondie. Even so, it's fun.
4
SAW VOTE SAW AS THE PRESIDENT OF POTATOLAND!!! Still a formidable foe early game, he's the bane of Vox, if he can close out the game BEFORE the mines are even starting. Beyond that and he's a turret :|.
5
Catherine Still the "IDGAF, I'mma go yolo," Catherine makes us wonder how someone like dis can even exist. OP stun, OP damage reduction, OP 1v1, OP Silence and OP perk. DO NOT TRY TO NINJA WHILE THE ORB OF ULTIMATE ANNOYANCE IS UP OR SUFFERRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!
5
Celeste "Wee, I look like a comet!" Celeste has always been a secret potato (jk). Our whole lives are a lie. She has crazy range, she has 2 reveals, she has crazy zone-trapping powers and a stun+ bazooka combo. If you can make her go cuckoo, feel free to bask in her screams. One stun though, and you'll be sunburnt beyond repair.
5
Ozo We're surprised! He isn't OP., good news. Watch out though, one Bangarang (not by Skrillex of course) will send your DJ prowess down a 5+++ death timer. If you survive, even CP Vox can destroy him 1v1. Never engage him alone if he'd built defense and healthsteal.
5
Petal She remakes, she WAS, she potatoed. Widely known as the main ingredient for Lay's, Petal is just sad, We tried coaxing her with fertilizer but she wouldn't budge. Let's just cross our fingers that she'll be blessed and hopefully, she won't become a munion gold cashier. 2 gold is A LOT!
6
Fortress Woof. Wow. One tiny change on his pups and he's running around the circle of life. He has a crazy early game, an annoying gap-closer, a crazy bleed and a really confusing ult. Seriously, when paired with a player with 5% brain capacity, this k9 will NOT BARK UP THE WRONG TREE.
6
Reim Fee? Fire? Foe? MUM! :D He's just grumpy, sheesh. We get it, you're grumpy and old and creepy. Why the root? He's like a Phinn+Catherine+Celeste, all in one old mortal shell. If he roots you, well...........no comment.
6
Vox We side neutrality and equality. Choose your taps well and be rewarded. Choose your taps on a mecha bubs Ardan and enjoy being pwned.
7
Adagio With the new buff, this immortal pyro can really be both a mosquito and a giant hydraulic bomb. Keeping your distance is impossible so choose your fights no matter which role this dude chooses. Watch out, one Verse and you go kaput.
7
Blackfeather Goodbye Brokenfeather! This fencer saw better days under the meta spotlight. Albeit the constant barrage of nerfs, he can still make you screech and wail like a burning pony. Watch out for his late game. Fall to his blade and au revoir, monsiour!
7
Glaive Oh look, big fat ca- Hey, where'd the pussy go?! Hello, it's me, and did I tell you I have Afterburn to play with you and me. Don't forget, my teammates, we gonna crush you down to pulp and we will make sure your team sees.
7
Joule What? Machine too fat? Hahahahahah- BOOM! I can't mo- ZAPPPPP! Halp meh it hur- RAYRAYRAYRAY. NEVER EVER, let her land a single blast on you. If she happens to, pray to Thor that she won't go Super Saiyan and melt you. And your team. And everything you cherish.
7
Kestrel Kapew! Kapew! Kapew! Kapew! AAAAAAANDDDDDDD, you're twirling to the ground as the crowd goes wild. *Sigh* How is it hard to zoom around her in non-geometrical circles? She CAN go poof before perforating you with four arrows and a stunplosion. It takes only 2% of your brain's processing ability to run like a rat before going BOOMBOOMBOOM.
7
Skaarf Late game. Hits. You burn. Your team burns. The world burns. If he stretches the game so thin, the timer's about to go bananas with 30:00, he's just...
8
Koshka Just like Glaive, she makes running feel disgusting. It's almost impossible to outrun this adrenaline junkie. Try putting a coat of Silence on this rabid beast and 3v1-ing her is made easier for you, you and me.
8
Ringo Ah, Ringo, the lone ranger. Always trying to turn Vox into a bulletcushion. BE ESPECIALLY WARY EARLY OR GIT GUD.
8
Skye No. Just no. She's gonna shoot the sound outta you. With significant burst, continuous kappa and a really bloodcurdling ult, she's downright unstoppable. IF you can weave your way till late game, the odds are in your favor. Watch out, let her kappa and your team vanishes in just 10 seconds,
8
Taka Yeah, about that......we can't put our virtual finger on this. You see, um...ah...he's in a state of oddity. He needs exactly the right hands to go kamikaze on you. No need for flares. Keep that Pulse and you'll drive this fox back into the box.

Bonus: Shoutout Thanks To- Top

Cheese Ausar for helping me tinker with the item building.
Musa_ for helping me out with the ability upgrading and the item paths.
Twiggled/SatOnYourCat for lending a hand in dealing with them pesky tables and formatting.
VGFierte for being a bro and pointing out the stuff I've screwed up.
Maudire for...hold on...motivating me to change the entire item paths. No, I'm grateful both for the consideration and for making me redo the entire thing.
FireWolf250 for questioning about my ability path. I'm dedicating a chapter for explaining it some time in the future.

This Guide Loves You :) Top

Wadup, it's meh, Bob ⊂(´・◡・⊂ )∘˚˳° and meh Steve ┬┴┬┴┤ʕ•ᴥ├┬┴┬┴. We're imaginary guides to guide you through the guide. Well, kind of. Our master decided to basically rework the guide cuz he's mentally odd (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻. We'll be invading the guide bit by bit and then the internet and finally the world.

And yes, tack Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg. Brofists are awesome!



As a side note, no, I didn't mess my abilities up. For my WP Vox playstyle, I rely more on burst and sustained damage, so picking Sonic Zoom and Wait For It provudes me with a better source of damage instead of wasting the damage out for a reduction of 4 seconds cooldown on my Pulse. For CP Vox, I tend to rely more on my bouncing attacks. Plus, Vox is in the game for quite some time and everyone knows not to superglue each other when you're up against Vox, so a third point on Wait For It isn't that beneficial. Instead, two overdrives are much better for the sake of a higher DPS when it comes to bouncing. Additionally, Vox is kinda squishy so overdriving Sonic Zoom on both builds provide a better escape option.

There'll be a really long, excruciating chapter dedicated to explaining why I'm such an idiot, no rush :).

Bonus: (Too lazy to change the ToC) The Ability Path Top

What playstyle should a Vox play by? If it's speed and mobility, then the overdrives of the 2 carry builds for Vox deserve an Overdrive on Zoom. If you're looking for more damage and utility, Pulse and WFI are actually better options. It all boils down into your opinion on which ability should be maxed.

Hero: Vox
Vox is a swift and mobile sniper, capable of stirring up chaos while diving around to finish off enemies. He has the speed of sound while being as deadly as a thunder strike explosion directly in your face. He is capable of deleting entire teams with a single snap, making him force to be listened.


Heroic Perk: Julia's Song
Vox's basic attacks deal both Weapon and Crystal damage. Vox has a unique trait called Resonance. When attacking targets affected with Resonance, Vox's Crystal damage of his basic attacks will "bounce" to nearby enemies, prioritizing heroes.


Slot A: Sonic Zoom
Vox dashes toward the targeted direction. If there's an enemy affected with Resonance, Vox sends 2 basic attacks with reduced Weapon damage at the target. On overdrive, this ability grants Vox an additional 20% WP ratio on his basic attacks for 2 seconds. The attack, however, doesn't work on turrets, Kraken, Vain crystals and when Vox has no vision on a marked enemy.


Slot B: Pulse
Vox emits a sonic pulse that propagates outwards at a fixed speed. When the wave comes in contact with any enemy target, neutral or opposite, the targets are slowed depending on their distance from Vox, have their location revealed and are applied with a Resonance debuff that also amplifies bounce damage. Although this ability can reveal the location of every enemy around Vox, Resonance does NOT affect Kraken, turrets and Vain crystals.


Slot C: Wait For It...
Upon selecting a targeted direction, Vox fires a bolt of charged sound at it, effectively silencing for 0.7 seconds, applying normal Resonance and dealing a trickle of damage. After a 1-second delay, the bolt line detonates from Vox, dealing increased Crystal damage while triggering Resonance to bounce the damage. This ability pierces trough anything. It's initial nuke can damage all enemy targets while the follow-up nuke can't affect turrets and Vain crystals.

The Abilities Top

When playing Vox, your ability upgrades vary accordingly.

It is recommended, however to start of with a Pulse for the early game farm potential. Proceed with a Sonic Zoom and upgrade depending on your play style. For me, I go-
Pulse- Sonic Zoom- Sonic Zoom- Sonic Zoom- Pulse- Wait For It...

From then on, the priority shifts to-
Pulse, Sonic Zoom and then, Wait For It...

Additional: If you paid close attention to my Lane CP Vox build, you'll notice that I skipped a point while investing 2 points simultaneously on Pulse and Wait For It... Skipping points are a great way to tune Vox earlier in the match. Depending on the match, you can choose to go Pulse-Sonic Zoom-Pulse-Pulse-Leave this point if only Sonic Zoom is available-Wait For It...and Pulse if you skipped a point-Pulse-Sonic Zoom-Wait For It...-Sonic Zoom-Sonic Zoom-Sonic Zoom


The Scenarios Top

In this match, Vox jungles as there was a stubborn Blackfeather...

As his allied Blackfeather is about to be turret dived by the enemy Koshka and Ardan, Vox initiates with a Wait For It... As soon as the silence is applied, Vox Sonic Zooms over to Blackfeather, punishing Koshka and Ardan for straying too far. Ardan Vanguards Koshka, leaving him open for a quick sweep by Blackfeather. A Pulse and another Sonic Zoom, Koshka ends up being Yummy Catnip for Vox's Frenzy.


Once again, this time Blackfeather and Ardan died holding off the enemy Skye from pushing the turret. Coming up again from the bush, he catches Skye by surprise with a Sonic Zoom to cut the gap. He then Pulses to keep skye close and activates yet another Sonic Zoom. With a sliver of health left, Skye attempts to escape back under her turret. Vox activates Wait For It... and snipes the escaping mech back to the garage.

In this final match, the team rushes to push the last turret before they're cut back by the enemy Skye. Vox then makes use of Skye's sandwich position and last hits the turret. Taking Skye out with 4 punts, Skye kneels to Vox's supremacy. This ends the game with an impressive win!!!

The Love Top

As a Vox, be always wary of CC and Reflex Blocks. Without his basic attacks and Resonance bounces, Vox is easily taken out.
Depending on both teams, it is recommended to build Crystal power to further leverage Vox's auto-control momentum.

Yes, we love you if you read this.

XOXO (°◡°♡).:。

Oh you're still here? *Sigh* Fine. (。-_-。 )人( 。-_-。). We're besties, okay?

The Details Top

So this is from the SMITE reddit- http://i.imgur.com/B3SyuYa.jpg
It's about a hexagon chart.

Basically, heroes are divided into multiple aspects: Damage, Mobility, Defense, Healing, Utility and Control.

On Vox, the dominant aspects are Damage, Mobility and Control. If you're curious, do check out the SMITE reddit- https://www.reddit.com/r/Smite/


VOX IS A RANGED MAGICAL ASSASSIN, FYI.

The Itemization Top

Core Item For Every Vox (Heroes actually)



Boots, the essential item in every hero. Is it not clear enough as biting dust?



CP Vox Essentials



The blah blah blah for Vox's blah blah blah. If you can get some beats in before and after Sonic Zoom, 2 procs of this is absolutely dashing.



With the changes, BM is an indirect nerf to Vox. Still fantastic though, as this gives you a choice on whether or not ult pre-teamfight, mid-teamfight or post-teamfight. You can also choose to stack it for a whopping 20% shield pierce!

Bonus: Synergies and Threats Top

Synergies- Supports/Protectors

Support Ardan
Arguably one of the best protectors in Vainglory, he can give you much more repositioning, damage potential and a hefty amount of utility.


Support Catherine
Also one of the best supports, she provides multiple CC and utility, all while being tanky. She is, however, incapable of protecting Vox in terms of defence.


Pseudo Carry Support Adagio
With an impressive amount of versatility in his kit, he has a mild synergy with Vox. As Vox mainly relies on auto attacks while being in the heat of battle, Adagio can utilize his B slot to make Vox hit harder. He lacks the utility and the true defense though.


Support Phinn
he provides excellent CC while being exaggeratedly tanky. The downside is, he is extremely slow. This contradicts Vox's mobility. If coordinated, however, a great Phinn can always pull this comp off by forcing enemies close enough for Vox's full potential to shine


Pseudo Carry Support Fortress
Pickles with Vox may sound like a crazy speed comp. Au contraire though, Fortress lacks the full on defense to supplement squishy Vox. Without any form of defense, Vox is basically a Skye with 5 Clockworks and a pair of Vainglory Boots. He does, however, attune Vox's lack of early game reckoning.


Synergies-Jungle

The Techniques Top

Oh bogus, I'll update very, very slowly.

The Gameplay Analysis Top

Coming soon, gonna get some Runbly/Ben/Fox vids to scrutinize. Maybe I'll get some VIPL footage on druid and other Vox mains.

The Rare FAQ Top

Which path should I follow?

1- It all depends on your playstyle. If you prefer going at it as a burstain assassin, WP is fantastic. If you prefer a teamfighter that actually obliterates after a short while, CP is the way to go.

2- Is the enemy team a balanced one? Early game, mid game and late game. These are the 3 typical MOBA phases. Generally, supports are those with a great early game. The jungler spikes mid and the lane carry ends the game. However, not every team runs like a wheel. Every scenario is different so soak up knowledge like Spongebob.

3- How is your team comp? Depending on your team, Vox can curve and flex to fill a game phase. While CP is extremely deadly late, WP Vox benefits mid-late, so choose your builds according to your team.

Trivia Top

1- Vox is actually derived from the Latin word: Vox or Vox Populi to say the people's voice.

2- Back around the few patches of Vox's release, he had a 50% Crystal ratio on his Wait For It, his Sonic Zoom attacks any enemy within the vicinity while having a longer cooldown of 7 seconds at overdrive which applies Resonance on the first shot and a longer dash distance.

3- Vox is a part of the Julia family trio with the other 2 being Ardan and Celeste.

4- Vox has the shortest range for a ranged carry with a 4.5 meters.

5- Vox's kit relies heavily on auto attacks so Atlas is actually useful even if you're up against his CP form.

6- Vox's Pulse is harder to use that a skillshot with the relatively slow propagation, making it worthwhile to wait until the wave hits before using any ability.

7- Similarly to Taka and Catherine, Vox can use Pulse even if he's stunned or during the 10-second shop duration at the start of the match. Taka and Catherine can both use their B's too.
