Items are a very important part of Smite. They provide players with powerful bonuses for themselves and their allies and debuffs for enemies, which can turn the tide of battle. Items cost gold, earned in several different ways.
There are many types of items:
- Passive (constantly provides its bonuses)
- Blessings / Starter Items
- Relics (must be activated)
- Consumables (consumed after being used)
Players can only hold up to six passive items, two relics and two consumables; except for consumables, players cannot have more that one of the same item.
