I just wanted to throw in my two cents here as someone who has played on PC for years, has all the gods mastered with 7 or 8 Diamonds and was not exactly crazy about doing them all over again to fulfill the achievement completionist who lives inside me. Here are some things that may help you.1. How do worshipers work?
The amount of worshipers you gain is time based. Essentially, the longer the match, the more worshipers. There is also a win bonus if you win the match.2. You earn worshipers at the same rate in every game mode.
Don't feel pressured to play a game type you hate; it's the same everywhere.3. Double (and triple!) worshiper weekends!
Double worshiper weekends will cut your time in half. An Arena win is 16 worshipers during a double weekend, and 24 in a triple. Meaning you would get 8 (or 12) for a loss, which is the same as a win using normal worshipers.
Keep an eye on them as they pop up at least every couple months or so. You can always expect them on events such as holidays or Smite's anniversary, however there are some randomly so check every week or so. They are always announced on Hi-Rez's website here: http://www.smitegame.com
Getting a god to rank 1 requires 50 worshipers, so during double worshipers in Arena you would need 3 wins (16 x 3 = 48) and one where it doesn't matter if you won or lost. Which is a heck of a lot better than normally.
They have also done a triple worshipers event, but only a few times. Keep an eye out for these promotions.4. Boosters.
If you want, you can purchase boosters which will give you 25% more worshipers. You can buy them in different amounts (1 day, 3 days, etc.) and focus on god mastery during those periods. You also get a free booster after not playing the game for 30 days (a "Returning Bonus") and can earn them through leveling up as well.A NOTE ABOUT BOOSTERS -- IT ONLY GIVES YOU AN EXTRA 25% OF THE BASE WORSHIPERS!
For example, if the original worshiper amount was 8, and double worshipers makes it 16, it will only give you an extra 25% of 8 = 2. 16 + bonus 2 = 18 worshipers total!5. Suggestions for easy to play gods?
Sure, though this is just my opinion. Most are not too hard, but if I had to pick the 40 easiest, 8 from each class, these would be my suggestions.Hunter:
Ah Muzen Cab, Anhur, Apollo, Artemis, Cupid, Medusa, Neith, Rama. Truth be told all Hunters play very similarly. If you can play one you can play them all. No one in this pool I would consider difficult.Guardian:
Ymir, Geb, Hades, Athena, Bacchus, Khumbhakarna, Sobek, SylvanusMage:
Freya, Poseidon, Kukulkan, Janus, Nu Wa, Ra, Scylla, Chang'e or IsisWarrior:
All easy to understand kits, and there are only 9 so there's not much point listing them. Bellona, Chaac, Guan Yu, Hercules, Odin, Osiris, Ravana, Sun Wukong, Tyr, Vamana. Tyr is the hardest (but still not hard per se) out of these.Assassin:
Fenrir, Loki, Arachne, Bastet, Thor, Nemesis, Hun Batz
All of the tips above also apply to the Diamonds Are Forever achievement for getting one god to rank 10.
Please let me know if you have any questions, I should be able to help with anything. Also, quick "back in my day" rant, back in my day it took 100 worshipers to get to rank 1, which they changed eventually, so we have it easy this time around. Happy achieving!
