Lore: After his defeat alongside his allies in the Titanomachy, Atlas was forced to hold the Celestial Spheres with him. As small as they looked, their weight was immense, and the pain of holding such a heavy weight only increased his powers, as he became resistant enought to barely use any armor or protection. But instead of uselessly try to defeat his former rivals again, now he will gain the favor of other powerful immortals to release him from the torment of holding the sky. Atlas will go to war again, but this time, to achieve victory like none other ever did.

Type: Greek Physical Melee Warrior
Weapon: Celestial Sphere (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_elDHBSvfD0U/Sk5Cjgc5MJI/AAAAAAAAA40/im0ssBUS5Vg/s1600/145-DSC_4414+-+Statue+of+Atlas+-+Rockefeller+Center.jpg) (but smaller, sufficient for him to carry with one hand)

Passive: TITANIC ENDURANCE
When receiving three debuffs or more, Atlas will heal 30% health.

1st Ability: CELESTIAL CAGE
Atlas will throw one of the rings of the Celestial Sphere. When it hits an enemy god, its immense weight will keep him stunned and deal minor damage, nearby gods and all minions in the ring's way will be knocked back. A slowed god will be stunned further.
Cooldown: 15s
Ability Type: Projectile

2nd Ability: CELESTIAL CHAKRAM
Atlas will unify the rings of the Celestial Sphere as two chakram, and quickly run and slash enemies in range with them.
Cooldown: 8s
Ability Type: Line

3rd Ability: SPINNING RINGS
Atlas will throw two rings of the Celestial Sphere like boomerangs around him. They do heavy damage and knock back enemies. Stunned enemies take aditional damage, but are not knocked back.
Cooldown: 11s
Ability Type: Area

Ultimate: DANCE OF THE SKY
Atlas will make all the rings of the Celestial Sphere dance around him, dealing great damage to them.
Cooldown: 80s
Ability Type: Area

Comments: Looking at this concept now makes me think three things. First: Atlas' lore needs a huge improvement. Second: Titans are bosses in the game, so there is little chance of Atlas to be added. Third: Fuck it, I'll keep the concept anyway. Since Atlas wasn't known much for his powers, I decided to base this into his main symbol: the celestial ring (aka the sky). Basically, considering the sky is a heavy thing to carry, the celestial ring's attacks are very strong, enough to stun and knock back enemies, so, he would work as a big bruiser in the game. Well, which Titan wouldn't? (various, I know, its just a rhetocial question)

I like the abilities but the stun needs a toning down, only change can 5 second stun, but it is still super rare for her to hit those 5 people, and that being said, it is still her ultimate, but it is only atlas first ability. This is just my opinion

Fact may be that its a single target only ability? But 3s is way, WAY too high. Ullr is top 3 gods in the game right now and what a lot of people are saying is half the reason why is that he gets a 1.8s stun and that is also single target.

D.D.

The passive will really toll new people. Lol. I can see it a noob healing the god for 40% hp for each passive attack he does then screams hacker. Only cause he bough debuff items. Wont be so bad with mid-late game players as they will read passives.

Very well, then, I'll decrease the stun time.

Atlas kind of gives me that same vibe as Hercules and because of that I'd want Atlas to be a melee warrior but this is really well thought out. The only thing I'd want to change slightly is the passive. Have Atlas heal the 40% over time, maybe over 5 seconds and not all at once. Other than that, great job.

I'll reduce the healing.

This is a really good idea. I have seen your other posts, and with some tweaking, they could be as good as this. This is just fantastic!

Hearing so many cheers for my characters makes me feel hopeful for my characters' appearence in SMITE. Tell me what you think it should be tweaked in their topics, I could take into consideration.

There are already way too many mages. What if instead, he was a guardian, and his basic attack was him swinging the celestial sphere back and forth? It's the only way I can really picture him both holding it and attacking with it, ranged or melee, anyway. When shooting out rings for abilities, he could shake the sphere, and when he swings two like weapons on either side, he could throw the sphere up on his back, and it would make sense spatially for him to take out the two rings he was already holding anyway.

this seems like a very good idea, but something that should be done is make a titans pantheon, I feal that there are enough titans that could be added for it.

Macaulyn

They would actually fit in the Greek pantheon, since they're from Greek Mythology, but I guess it makes sense since this pantheon is the one with the greater number of gods. I don't know why none of them were added.

I have been wanting to come up with ideas for atlas too but ran into issues making the kit, props to you!
Passive is still pretty nasty a 30% heal could be an issue if the condition for it wasn't pretty high, i dont know a time when i've ever had more than 3 unique debuffs. I liked the idea of Atlas shifting his burden when he hits people with a skill so maybe that could take the place of this increasing Atlas's movespeed and decreasing movespeed of those hit. Then again I play support and usually have a way to clear the CC/debuffs anyway.
All in all awesome god!

I think mainly they haveent added them because as you pointed out there are a lot of them and that's probably why, the titans pantheon would be a cool idea,

well he mentions in the kit that atlas "Throws the celestial rings" so he would probably look like old herc carrying a ball made of rings with stars floating in and around them

Like old Herc? No fucking way, that looked too retarded.

Atlas should go as new god in smite, but all knock ups and rest of cc on his abilities are still op. Passive seems rather weird, i would go for a percentage of defenses buff, it needs a cooldown otherwise. Also, I have problems when trying to imagine Atlas having a big ball of rings with his 2 hands and grabing two rings of it, then slashing with a ring in each hand. Maybe you can work on that aswell.

It´s a nice concept tho, keep working on it.
