From assassins to supports and control mages, there are plenty of playstyles you can use to get victories. While there are many gods in the game that might interest you, here are the five strongest mid lane gods in Smite.

Chang’e is a whimsical mid lane mage who uses her dance abilities to move swiftly around a fight while dealing a lot of damage to opposing gods. She has high sustain in her kit and is hard to punish by opponents, but you still need to know how to move around teamfights to avoid getting locked down and burst down by enemies.

Hades is a carry mage who can snowball and take over games by himself if left uncontrolled by the enemy. While you do you have a great laning phase and mid game, you fall off during the later stages of the game so it’s important to finish the match quickly. But even if the match goes to the later stages of the game, one good flank can seal it in your favor.

Aphrodite is an utility-oriented mage that scales well throughout the entire duration of the game. She has a great kit with both single-target spells and area-of-effect abilities. You can easily farm up safely with her to reach the mid-game stage where you can group with your team and start tearing down the enemy base.

Anubis is one of the old-school gods from Smite. He has no mobility, making him one of the most vulnerable mid laners. But with proper positioning you can circumvent this weakness and use his combo potential to deal large amounts of damage to enemies.

Ra, the Sun God, is a mid lane mage who has a flexible playstyle. He has both long and short range abilities, allowing you to build appropriately for the playstyle you prefer. While he’s not the most powerful god in Smite, he makes a good stand for himself for being among the best.
