When is Auto purchase/Auto skill useful?

It depends. For avid gamers, enabling auto-buy in the Arena can be useful. This way avid gamers can instantly buy items while they are in the fountain and it gives them an edge over other players who have to think and buy manually in this short-paced game mode. Also, most people use a damaging build in the arena which is provided by this mechanism so itemization is not a big problem. Alternatively, avid gamers who're aware of the meta and the items available in Smite store can use the in-built God builder mechanism of the game. They can then turn on the auto-buy/auto skill so that they will follow the itemization path that is set in that specific God builder mechanism for a specific God and will not have to buy every item manually which can be time-consuming.

Note that you can not turn on auto buy or auto skill mid-game or late-game if you have already turned them off in the beginning. In order to re-enable them once again, you will have to manually check the "Auto Purchase items" and "Auto Skill Level Up" from the guides in the character selecting screen.
