Smite - Free To Play.

Smite is a 3D fantasy MOBA where players take on the role of mythological gods and battle in team-based arenas. Unlike other MOBAs, SMITE puts you directly onto the battlefield with a third-person action viewpoint. From blind-side ambushes to aimed shots, a new pantheon of strategic possibilities awaits.  Become a legend of myth, enter the Battleground of the Gods, and play FREE now!

Game Modes:
Conquest – the main 5v5 game mode. Features three lanes and a jungle area filled with neutral monsters. Arena – a 5v5 game mode with an open battle area rather than lanes. Each team begins with 500 points and must reduce the other side's to zero by killing heroes, minions, and escorting allied minions to portals. Joust – a 3v3 game mode with a single lane which otherwise plays like Conquest mode. Joust can also be played 1v1. Assault – similar to ARAM (All Random, All Mid) in LoL, players are assigned a random God and fight on a map with a single lane. Siege – a faster version of Conquest. Siege mode consists of only two lanes and contains a special Siege Juggernaut minion that deals extra damage to structures.
Never played a battle arena before? Don’t worry. Auto-buy, auto-level, and the deathmatch-like Arena mode let you jump right into divine MOBA action. Aspiring pro? Top the ladders, join a competitive team, and you too could be playing at the SMITE World Championship.

Recommended Add-Ons

Recommended Posts

There are a lot of add-ons that have been made to enhance playing experience. The best way to get them is through an add-on manager called Minion.  You can also go directly to ESOUI, the site that houses the add-ons, if you don't want to use a separate program to manage them. Here's a list of ones I use and recommend (some are out-of-date, but they still work):


Advanced Filters - Filters your inventory and bank in finer detail than the default (armor type, materials by craft,etc)

Azura - Interface Enhanced - Unlocks the interface and lets you move elements around

CraftStore DB - Allows you to search for recipes for quests, among other things

ESO Master Recipe List and ESO Master Recipe List Alt Format - Shows which characters can craft a recipe you pick up as well as whether it"s known or not known by the characters

Harven's AS to LAM Adapter - Simplifies the way add-ons are grouped in the Settings menu

Harven's Improved Skills Window - Improves the way skills are displayed and shows more information on the tooltip

Inventory Grid View - Shows your inventory/bank as a grid instead of a column

LoreBooks,  Lost Treasure and SkyShards - Show location or lore books, treasure map treasures and surveys and sky shards on the map

LUI Extended - Among other things, allows you to change the unit frames (for example, to stack Health, Magicka and Stamina to display the player frame similarly to other MMOs) and displays information on weapons and armor damage, FPS,  etc. Another very popular UI replacer is AUI (but it doesn't have the MMO-style player frame).

My Build Continued - Shows character build information in one window

Pet Dismiss - Adds a keybind to dismiss Sorcerer pets

Potion Maker - Improved interface for crafting potions. 

Ravalox' Quest Tracker - Improved quest tracker (main screen) 

Roomba - Guildbank Stacker  - Stacks the items in the guild bank

SpentSkillPoints - Shows spent and unspent skill points

StopIt! - Stops the character from spinning around when certain windows are open and allows you to move while windows are open

Votan's Improved Quests - Improved quest tracker (map)

Votan's Minimap - A nice minimap

Wykkyd Full Immersion - Hide UI elements on screen. I use this to hide the compass and change the way the reticle displays (there are other add-ons that do this separately, as well)

Combat Metrics: Damage Meter - I don't use a damage meter, but apparently, this is the recommended one

The above are all found on Minion. In addition, if you want to change the color palette or remove the haze, this is a good program:

ReShade - Post-processing injector. Directions for how to use it with ESO are here.


NOTE: I've been using these add-ons for as long as they've been available, so I'm not sure if some of the functionality of these add-ons has been since coded into the game :D

Yeah, I didn't realize I was using so many add-ons for the game. Quite a few of them are just to make the UI look and function more like a standard PC-based MMO, rather than the more platform-friendly default UI.  I set my UI up to look similar to the way I set it up in other MMOs. I like keeping all the important information at the bottom of the screen.
