Items


NEW Soulstone
“It’s been a long time since Mages had a starting item other than Vampiric Shroud to pick from. Soul Stone offers no starting Health, but provides significant Mana and a nice damage spike for early clear or poking at enemy gods.”
20 Magical Power, 100 Mana, 800 Gold. Passive - Hitting an enemy with a Basic Attack tears out and stores a portion of their soul. Each soul grants +4 MP5. At 5 souls, your next ability cast is at +30 Magical Power.
Devourer’s Gauntlet
“It might not come as a surprise that Devourer’s Gauntlet is getting an adjustment. This potent item is seeing a reduction in it’s base power, and an increase in the number of stacks it takes to reach it’s full potential. This will give more room for specifically Hunters to build and counter-build with a little more variation in the early laning phase.”
Reduced base Physical Power from +30 to +25.
Increased maximum stacks from 60 to 75.
Reduced Physical Lifesteal per stack from 0.25% to 0.20%
Reduced Physical Power per stack from 0.5 to 0.4
Frostbound Hammer
“With this change and the adjustment to Heavy Hammer, we are looking to make Frostbound a bit more appealing to build into.”
Health increased from 300 to 400.
Heartseeker
“Heartseeker saw no adjustment coming into Season 2 when its Magical counterpart did. Combined with the reduction to Devourer’s Gauntlet, Heartseeker is now a potent option for many Physical gods.”
Reduced price from 1950g to 1790g
Increased Physical Power from +25 to +30.
Heavy Hammer
“Heavy Hammer was just too good of a buy for aggressive starting builds. We’ve reduced the Health and the Slow to help mitigate the potency it gave to early jungle invades.”
Health reduced from 200 to 100.
Slow reduced from 25% to 15%.
Hydra’s Star
Fixed buff using incorrect icon.
Magi’s Blessing
“This change goes in line with the fix from last patch, in which Magi’s would not be consumed if you were already CC immune. We’ve adjusted the numbers to better bring it in line with its new functionality.”
Increased cooldown from 45s to 60s.
Reinforced Shoes
Health increased from 100 to 150.
Reinforced Greaves
Health increased from 100 to 150.
Talaria Boots
“With the changes to Talaria and Traveler’s, we are looking to make them more competitive options versus other Boots and Shoes, while also giving roaming supports an item that better rewards their mobile play style. Increasing the previous Movement Speed boost from 10% to 14% along with adding Gold and Experience makes this item a unique fourth option.”
Passive Changed: You gain +14% additional Movement Speed and +25 HP5 while out of combat. Each time you hit an enemy god with an ability you earn +50 Experience and +30 Gold. This cannot occur on the same god more than once every 90s.
Traveler’s Shoes
Passive Changed: You gain +14% additional Movement Speed and +25 HP5 while out of combat. Each time you hit an enemy god with an ability you earn +50 Experience and +30 Gold. This cannot occur on the same god more than once every 90s.




Gods - Balance/Updates/Fixes


http://hirezstudios.blob.core.windows.net/sitefinity/smite-god-icons/1919.jpg
Athena
Defender of Olympus
Fixed Liberté skin playing Standard Athena voice when casting ability.
http://hirezstudios.blob.core.windows.net/sitefinity/smite-god-icons/1899.jpg
Apollo
General
Increased base Physical Power from 36 to 40.
Increased base Physical Power per level from 2.5 to 2.6.
http://hirezstudios.blob.core.windows.net/sitefinity/smite-god-icons/2034.jpg
Ao Kuang
“Ao Kuang is getting a fairly significant pass in this patch. The Dragon King has been one of the lowest performing gods in SMITE since his Season 2 damage adjustments. The adjustments to Water Illusion and Dragon Call both have balance implications, but are also big quality of life improvements for Ao Kuang players. The changes to his Ultimate are more substantial. Slightly increasing the range makes it a little easier to catch fleeing players. Adjusting the kill threshold to be flat at all ranks makes it easier to use early game at the cost of late game potency. Finally adding a heal for a successful execution gives Ao Kuang more options to re-engage, where he was often forced to use his ultimate to escape with low Health.”
Water Illusion
Now automatically detonates at the end of its duration if Ao Kuang did not manually detonate.
Dragon Call
This ability can now be activated in Stealth without revealing Ao Kuang.
King of the Eastern Seas
Increased cast range from 15 ft to 17 ft.
Increased kill threshold form 23/26/29/32/35 to 30% at all ranks.
Now restores 10/15/20/25/30% of Ao Kuang’s maximum Health upon successful execution.
http://hirezstudios.blob.core.windows.net/sitefinity/smite-god-icons/2037.jpg
Awilix
Gravity Surge
Tyr knock ups are now pullable by Awilix.
Bellona
General
Fixed missing Physical indicator on god icon.
http://hirezstudios.blob.core.windows.net/sitefinity/smite-god-icons/1920.jpg
Chronos
Accelerate
Fixed Lotus Crown Passive not working when Section 1 is activated.
http://hirezstudios.blob.core.windows.net/sitefinity/smite-god-icons/1778.jpg
Cupid
Share the Love
Fixed the description saying “Magical Power”.
http://hirezstudios.blob.core.windows.net/sitefinity/smite-god-icons/1674.jpg
He Bo
General
Fixed Denton showing off to the right on He Bro and Sydney Shredder during Defeat.
http://hirezstudios.blob.core.windows.net/sitefinity/smite-god-icons/1993.jpg
Kumbhakarna
“Mighty Yawn gets a mighty buff, and Epic Uppercut get’s a quality of life improvement, having some of its damage split to be upfront rather than all on landing. Striking a Crowd Control immune target with your Epic Uppercut means they will now take some upfront damage instead of avoiding it all.”
Mighty Yawn
Now also applies a 30/35/40/45/50% Attack Speed slow if enemies are awoken early.
Adjusted the targeter shown after casting ability to be more accurate.
Epic Uppercut
25% of the damage from this ability now happens on the initial hit, with the remaining 75% upon landing.
Initial hit now deals 75/100/125/150/175 damage (15% of your Magical Power)
Landing hit now deals 225/300/375/450/525 damage (+40% of your Magical Power)
http://hirezstudios.blob.core.windows.net/sitefinity/smite-god-icons/1941.jpg
Mercury
Passive
Fixed Mercury gaining full bonus on his Passive from Talaria Boots, even while in combat.
http://hirezstudios.blob.core.windows.net/sitefinity/smite-god-icons/1872.jpg
Neith
“Neith is one of Smite’s ability based Hunters, and this adjustment is to help bring her a bit better in line with her carry counterparts.”
Spirit Arrow
Fixed an incorrect scaling issue on secondary targets hit.
Increased base damage from 80/140/200/260/320 to 90/155/220/285/350.
Increased scaling from 80% to 90%.
http://hirezstudios.blob.core.windows.net/sitefinity/smite-god-icons/2000.jpg
Osiris
“Yep. Fixed those 2x Boots on his recommended list! In all seriousness, Osiris’ base Attack Speed adjustment going into Season 2 coupled with downward adjustments to his core items put him in a tough spot. While still being lower than it was in Season 1, this starting Attack Speed increase will help him to utilize his strong Basic Attacks earlier.”
General
Increased base Attack Speed from 0.95 to 1.
Fixed showing 2x Boots in the recommended list.
http://hirezstudios.blob.core.windows.net/sitefinity/smite-god-icons/1944.jpg
Sun Wukong
“It’s happening! Sun Wukong gets some love this patch, with a minor increase to his clear and a meaningful Stun duration scaling change to 72 Transformations. We might not be done with the Monkey King, but we’re taking this one cloud hop at a time.”
The Magic Cudgel
Increased bonus Minion and Jungle camp damage from +20% to +25%.
Master’s Will
Increased damage from 80/130/180/230/280 to 90/140/190/240/290.
72 Transformations
Increased Tiger Stun duration from 0.6/0.8/1.0/1.2/1.4 to 1.0/1.1/1.2/1.3/1.4.
http://hirezstudios.blob.core.windows.net/sitefinity/smite-god-icons/1991.jpg
Ullr
General
Fixed Denton showing off to the right during Defeat.
http://hirezstudios.blob.core.windows.net/sitefinity/smite-god-icons/1864.jpg
Xbalanque
Branching Bola
Fixed missing glow effect on the Shinobalanque skin.

REJOICE FOR THE OSIRIS BUFFS
:3
How much's the ticket thing?

Boatmurdered
04-21-2015, 04:01 PM
So I like zombies as much as the next guy....but AP is totally grave keeper from HON. Like...it's not at all different. That's...well words fail me. In fact this is bothering me enough to do this:

Ah Puch

Hollow Ground - Passive
Ah Puch is closely attuned with the dead and may exhume decaying corpses at his will. When walking over a decaying corpse, Ah Puch lowers the Cooldown of Undead Surge by 2s, restores 6% of his maximum Health and 3% of his maximum Mana. Decaying corpses last 45s. A maximum of 6 corpses can be out at any one time.

Gravekeeper has no passive, but has those abilities in his kit at other places.

Ah Puch

Undead Surge
Ah Puch raises up to two decaying corpses from the underworld that surge forward exploding on anything they touch, when they reach maximum distance, or when Ah Puch reactivates Undead Surge dealing 90/110/130/150/170 (+35% of your Magical Power) damage and Slowing targets hit by 40% for 3s. The corpses collapse after exploding remaining behind. Cooldown: 10s. Cost: 70/80/90/100/110.

Gravekeeper

Target an enemy to throw a corpse at him. Deals 60 / 100 / 100 / 140 Magic Damage and applies a 1 second Stun.

May be cast 1 / 1 / 2 / 2 times in succession. Charges refresh every 7 seconds.

Leaves a corpse at target's feet.

Ah Puch

Corpse Explosion
Ah Puch causes the target area to explode dealing 60/70/80/90/100 (+10% of your Magical Power) damage. Corpse Explosion also causes any decaying corpses in the area to explode dealing 60/85/110/135/160 (+25% of your Magical Power) damage. Cooldown: 8s. Cost: 60/70/80/90/100.

Gravekeeper

Target an area to deal 60 Magic Damage and detonate corpses in the area.

Each corpse explodes for an additional 20 / 40 / 60 / 80 Magic Damage in a 300 radius area.

Maximum of 6 corpses may be detonated at once.

Ah Puch

Fleeting Breath
Ah Puch throws a charm from the underworld which awakens a decaying corpse that applies miasma to targets in an area and falls to the ground, remaining behind. Targets take 32/34/36/38/40 (+15% of your Magical Power) damage every second. After the duration, targets take an additional 20/30/40/50/60 (+10% of your Magical Power) damage and are Stunned for 1s plus +0.5s for each time they were healed by an ability during the initial duration. Cooldown: 10s. Cost: 70.

Gravekeeper

Walking over a corpse picks it up and allows you to throw it as your next attack. This attack deals a bonus 15 / 30 / 45 / 60 Physical Damage and slows the target by 25 / 30 / 35 / 40% for 2 seconds.

Attack leaves 1 corpse at target's feet.

Ah Puch

Empty the Crypts
Ah Puch unleashes an army of wraiths from the Ninth Hell that swarm forward and deal 40/50/60/70/80 (+10% of your Magical Power) damage to enemies they collide with and apply a 7% stacking Slow for 2s (maximum 8 stacks). Cooldown: 90s. Cost: 100/110/120/130/140.

Gravekeeper

Target an area to summon 10 / 16 / 24 Zombies at the location - an Unstable Zombie or Wretched Zombie will be spawned. Unstable Zombies explode, dealing 55 / 70 / 85 Magic Damage. Wretched Zombies attack for 30 / 35 / 40 Physical Damage per attack (Attacks ignore deflection).

Zombies are uncontrollable and last for 8 seconds, 5 seconds if they are exploding. Zombies have 350 / 500 / 650 Health.

I'm not saying that I won't enjoy AP, but man the ripping off is real.

Also those new boot changes? I'M BUYING ONLY THOSE BOOTS ON A LOT OF GODS NOW? XP FOR MURDERING PEOPLE? SURE WHY NOT?

If he was as bad as you thought, he's still shit.

No, that 0.05 is actually a 0.1 buff. He starts with the AS of a lvl 5 osiris now. And given his 1,4% scaling, he gets to the same value as in season 1

CaptainDoomsday
04-21-2015, 04:43 PM
I'm liking most of this. I think Wukong's weakness still lies in his mechanics more than his numbers (and have a list of possible solutions to that at the ready), and I think Magi's should get a bit more protection to offer in exchange for its bubble becoming vincibile, but Khumba power, Ao competence, and Apollo not being so limp I approve of.

Osiris is still going to be sad, but any improvement is improvement, right?

All this patch needs to really make my day is revival plans for Old Wa and Domination.

But if he was so crappy, a small buff like this wont matter?

You see, he wasn't as bad as you thought he was, and I maintained that, because a buff as small as this doesn't change him much.

I haven't seen a lot of the Chinese pantheon in the competitive scene lately compared to the other pantheons, since there's always a lot more gods in other pantheons that provide something more. Not even one in the Chinese pantheon is really a high choice at the moment, but let's not go that far.

Still :(

His early game was trash, he spiked so late that it was too late sadly. True, he could always hold his shit in solo vs chaac/vamana/herc and get into late game, but his role is that of an unboxable anti-carry. An unboxable anti-carry who comes online AFTER THE CARRY isn't quite right. Now he comes online faster. I hope for some small skill dmg increase too, those things tickle at lvl 20

All those skins look pretty awesome, wonder how many of them will get a new vgs too?

On the other hand though, more xbal skins, while others don't even have only one, or no additional skins at all ...

Why not give nox or awilix a skin instead?

Just noticed the vgs list, the nem and bastet vgs better not be copacabanaaaa-ish though :<

Overall quite happy with this patch, a little annoyed at putting a "limited only" wall on most of the new skins, and the magi's nerf is really annoying since it was the perfect option to avoid a max cdr ares, the apollo buff seems pointless, seriously guys show the other hunters some love instead of always riding apollos dick. But ultimately this seems like its going to be a great patch. Look forward to trying the new god, been awhile since a god I was actually interested in came out.

Gravekeeper is one of my favorite HoN heroes of all time, as soon as I heard about the new Smite god was similar I had to come to the forums to express my GK love. I am glad that you [Boatmurdered] took the time to write this up.
Rip offs are lame, but sometimes hard to avoid. (Such as the case of Monkey King, aka Sun Wukong)

I just want people to know that Gravekeeper exists and hope that whenever Ah Puch is played, they think of him... <3

This patch includes everything I was looking for and more! Except they forgot one little detail. Why no nox ult change? What I was expecting:

Nox: This god is not played in the competitive scene, or played very rarely. We've reverted the ult cast time to make her more viable.

Like, seriously. How hard is it to give her back her old ult? Also, More Xbal skins when she and Awilix/Ao haven't even gotten theirs yet.

If they just revert nox's ult change and gave her a nice 400/600 gem skin, I'd die happy.

I just want people to know that Gravekeeper exists and hope that whenever Ah Puch is played, they think of him... <3

Engineer, of the Rosie variety was my personal favorite, but GK was number 2, or 3. I was just flabbergasted at how blatantly they simply took his moves, and made the most minor of changes. Always nice to meet more people who played HON though.

Nice buffs on SWK, but not enough. His passive is still a joke and his 1 deals no damage to players

Good job on Osiris, but Qin'Sais need absolutely a buff or a price decrease

3,000 points with only 15/20 points at a time could be a bit hard to reach, even if it is lasting until the end of Season 2 it could be a bit rough for the people who can't play Smite all the time or especially to the EU players who can't seem to have a single week of stable servers. Maybe give 5 points if you lose? That way it still helps a little bit.

Talaria Boots
“With the changes to Talaria and Traveler’s, we are looking to make them more competitive options versus other Boots and Shoes, while also giving roaming supports an item that better rewards their mobile play style. Increasing the previous Movement Speed boost from 10% to 14% along with adding Gold and Experience makes this item a unique fourth option.”
Passive Changed: You gain +14% additional Movement Speed and +25 HP5 while out of combat. Each time you hit an enemy god with an ability you earn +50 Experience and +30 Gold. This cannot occur on the same god more than once every 90s.

It was said that something like a Nu Wa ultimate would not count for all the EXP/Gold bonus from hitting 5 gods, The way this change is listed in the post is really bad.

Skins:
I.... really dislike that "Not so kawai" Light stance Hel voice on Bastet.
AMC finally gets a monstrous mayan buddy who also speaks the Cthulu language.
I was kinda hoping an axe swinging down on the target for Nemesis Arbiter ult animation.


God changes:
Apollo-
I guess it's ok. To be completely honest, he never really has been this super "I'm going to kill everyone" kind of Hunter by late game anyway. He is the sneaky backdoor pusher with fast getaway type of god so buffing him back again is reasonable.

Ao Kuang-
A huge buff, but not in the way I'm hoping it to be. As someone who tried and tested AK alot, he is a very niche pick meant to abuse player who don't know beads and that's pretty much it. When he first entered the SWC, people didn't know how to deal with him and of course, fed him.
What he needs is a hard cc or at the very least a strong soft cc that can really force people to use beads. Not a buff to his ult. 30% health regain is a very good buff but rather "unsuitable" to his playstyle and while I can understand the 30% execution at all levels, it only makes him stronger early game.

Before the buff he is clearly a god that requires core items like fatalis/demonic/boots/winged blade to chase and make use of the dragon divebombs. Once he gets that he becomes very dominant but can fall off late game due to players grouping up more often preventing him from picking people off one by one.
With this buff, he is clearly going to become this very dominant early to mid game god and if things go well, it will carry on even up till late game. BUT the only problem here is that it won't work in high level plays due to competent players warding or having beads will shut him down entirely which still makes the buff rather "pointless". Pub-stomping with Ao will really get out of hand though.

Kumbha-
Ok... what the serious heck?!
Just because a god is seriously underrated (because herp derp our community is like "Dis god be like gettin a series of nurfs we might as wel nut play him evur again") by no stretch of the imagination means he is bad.
People simply aren't playing him creatively enough. He has superb support utilities and unlike any other supports, his survival ability is off the charts!
Blink mez and even if you get only 2 people, it already turns the fight into a 3v5 for a good 3 second. Banish one of their damage dealers and it's now 2v5 as well as a very easy ult setup for your team. If they used beads, let them waste it and save your ults because you can blink again in 45 seconds!

Even with all that you're going to add a whooping 50% attack speed reduction upon waking up on his mez?!!! At level 9!!!?
I can assure you this is going to get nerfed to 30% reduction VERY soon.

Neith and Osiris-
Fair enough.

SWK-
Not a very BIG buff but still much appreciated buff to an underperforming god. I'd still like to see SWK being able to control his own clone while on the cloud though because WASD can't really be used the way it is anyway.

New god
Ah Puch-
Very interesting god concept. His passive seems to be somewhat decent for solo lane though.
His "Fleeting breath" though is something that I had always wanted in this game. The zombie status debuff like the ones in Final Fantasy. Perfect ability to counter against the current dominant healers.
His "undead surge" and "empty the crypts" can be countered by gods with the ability to body block making him a decent counterpick as well as opening the option to get countered by gods like Ymir, Thor and probably even Loki using his decoy.

Overall, I think this is one of the more interesting god concepts ever since Awilix.
EDIT: I can already see smarter players casting the ult sideways to the left or the right so that when a tank wants to bodyblock it for the team they will have to line up sideways or cast "walls" sideways instead leaving them to be open in the front.

Yup, apparently 300 gems.

Here's the deal. Once you purchase the ticket, you will get a loading screen. You must activate the loading screen to your profile to start earning points. Here's the hard part. To earn points, you must play a "fantasy football" of sorts. You must guess the correct team to win the round of that week. Guessing the correct team will earn you +20 fantasy points. Guess the wrong team, and well.. you get nothing. In addition, winning normal and league matches will earn you +15 points per win.

Here's the good/bad part, the rewards!

Executioner nemesis = 1000 fantasy points.
Void KKK = 3000 fantasy points.

Which means, that in a 7 week time span you will need to win 267 matches to earn the skins. This is without the fantasy rewards factored in though. They will keep the reward system updated as teams win and lose. So you must be on almost every day for a shot at the skins.

Oh yeah! and purchasing the ticket will start you off with a fresh new Xbalanque SWC skin!

Edited for confusion.

Just to correct - It's any game mode, not just Conquest that you need to win to get the +15 points. +20 are awarded for correctly predicting the winner of matches.

i have over 2600 worshipers into SWK and i really think making SWK's passive kick in at 50% hp along with these changes would make him a lot better. his passive kicking in at 35% is rather bad seeing we have executes in the game which are 5% off of the threshold for swks passive. cause like "yay undeafeated body kicked in" *gets executed* .... .-. looks like i got defeated.
Also being a support main, i think lowering the CD on the talaria and travelers shoes to around 40-50 seconds would be better. cause in my opnion getting a flat 40 power or some power and atk spd for phsyicals or 25% CDR or 60 power for your magicals is still a lot better than what the travelers and talaria boots will give.

Kawaii Pop Bastet

The skin is pretty decent. The voice isn't.

Now I watch anime actively and have a very high tolerance for the comings and goings of Japanese culture as well as Pseudo-Japanese Western culture.
Despite that, I do not find the Kawaii Pop voice pack amusing. I got a mental chuckle out of the skin, but that was all.



I mean no offense to the voice actor or whoever decided to make it this way, but the new "Kawaii Pop Bastet" voice pack is quite bothersome.


Could there be a way to turn a certain teammate's voice pack back to the default so it only affects what you hear on your end? Maybe an option on the player when you press tab or add a new menu for it?
By default their chosen voice would be played, but an option to change it to default on our end would be nice.
- This way, they can still VGS with you, but you don't have to deal with the distraction of hearing something unpleasant.


I don't think it's very productive for a game to force you to listen to things you don't want to listen to.
Just because they paid some gems for it doesn't automatically give them the right to be a nuisance with it.
If they're going to go out of their way to be distracting, I think players should be given the choice to hear the default from said distracting players if they feel it will improve their performance in a game.
- If someone wants to hear certain voices, they can do so on their own end and more power to them. Not everyone likes every voice in the game and we shouldn't be forced to listen to all of them.


Personally, I do not feel this new voice pack on Bastet in anyway would improve my gaming experience with one on my team.

There will always be people who spam even if it's not to great degree, and listening to the extremely well done default voice would be much preferred over certain other voices.

The Osiris and Swk buffs were much needed, but don't really do much to help their viability. Osiris still gets online after all of the carries get online and he can't properly anticarry right now. If the cost on quins was reduced and his attack speed started around 1.04 or 1.05 he would be able to get out of his tough early game more easily. Now I just don't understand why hi rez just refuses to give Swk a buff that will actually affect him. They should change the damage scaling on minions to his actual scaling so that his one can actually do damage. Plus ten base damage isn't even really a buff worth talking about. IMT happy his tiger got buffed, I just want him to get a real damage buff instead of him getting things that don't actually effect him very much

Big patch, nice "quality of life" changes.

PS. I like the improvements on curse client, but I would like to see also the notifications from curse in the curse-smite overlay, so I dont need everytime to drop the smite-window. This isnt a big issue to me than to others of my friends, because if the do that often their smite client may crash. It is not something too important but something to be looked in the future.


AC PUCH VS ZHONG KUI beware of the wrath of the spirits :rolleyes:

Yes finally Sun Wukong gets a buff. I could play SWK good before but now it's even better. Also Magi Blessing got nerfed? How we gonna counter Ymir? No Odin buff though also I believe it's unlikely but one can dream. And why not buff Vamana? You made the Sleeping Giant and an Undead Lord usable again but not the little guy?

Yeah, those +10 damage on his 2 and better scaling on the tiger stun will totally change his gameplay.
Sigh Sun Wukong still has a stupid passive...

Sun Wukong
“It’s happening! Sun Wukong gets some love this patch, with a minor increase to his clear and a meaningful Stun duration scaling change to 72 Transformations. We might not be done with the Monkey King, but we’re taking this one cloud hop at a time.”

The Magic Cudgel
Increased bonus Minion and Jungle camp damage from +20% to +25%.
Master’s Will
Increased damage from 80/130/180/230/280 to 90/140/190/240/290.
72 Transformations
Increased Tiger Stun duration from 0.6/0.8/1.0/1.2/1.4 to 1.0/1.1/1.2/1.3/1.4.
i still.. don't understand, WHAT IS THE USE OF HIS 1 LATE GAME
range ? what range ? ranged gods can destroy him during his 1's cast time. interrupting it, or even halving his hp if against a hunter/nuker.
i like the buff on his tiger early game, but his problem is mainly in his
1/passive
2/1
3/ult
his 1 is worthless as a poking tool, hunters can lifesteal, solo laners usually have something to sustain themselves with. making it only useful to clear minion waves, steal fg or gf. nothing else. and support wukong won't be using the increasement in his 1's damage against minions because the adc is the one should be clearing.
want to make him max his 2 first ?
increase the slow and make it scale per rank so he can be like a normal AAer.
give his 1 a debuff or any type of cc so it can be useful other than last hitting gods for late game.
if his ult can save him from almost every situation, while healing him, he will rarely drop to 35%hp.
so make it activates at 50% of his hp.
.
one more thing, thx for the kumbha buff, he rly needed something like that.

So magis blessing nerf....now I need to buy both magis AND beads just to counter Ares? I mean, it's only 6 second difference between his ult cooldown and magis cooldown, but its gonna be enough...for him. That's....not nice.

Hel's light form voice actor sounds like a little b*tch.


Thats what she is, nothing but a b*tch. Also, it's the same voice actor in dark form too.

The broken ultimate on the Anubis Stargazer skin still hasn't been fixed? I think that is a little more important then text issues... The ult does not work 60% of the time. Its not turnable and shoots directly into the ground. There has already been a thread about this (not created by myself, lol), and I filed a support ticket a few weeks ago.

Otherwise this patch looks absolutely fabulous! I do hope you can find the issue with the anubis skin and get it fixed. Thank you!

SWK finally gets another buff despite being utterly underwhelming in every role in conquest since the warrior "re-positioning."

NEWSFLASH: Increasing the damage his cudgel does to minions does absolutely NOTHING. What good does clearing the wave slightly faster in solo lane do, when you have to back every other wave because you have no sustain. Herc/Tyr/Baka/Ballona ALL gods who have a heal built in their abilities or passive reign supreme. SWK's "buff" doesn't accomplish anything meaningful in solo

SWK still has NO relevant CC to support competitively.

SWK's kit needs to be reworked or reverted to s0 (master's will does a knock up) for him to be remotely competitive as support.

Would be nice to play my favorite god competitively.

I'm not sure if it's because I don't play conquest,

but I do fine enough with Wukong.

Maybe people don't realize that you're supposed to poke with him, and not go trading blows with blows?

Yeah, poke is such an awesome thing in this. That's why AMC, the hunter with two pokes, is considered weak.
Poke is a weak strategy, you can't base a god only on poke that deals no damage

It's on the home screen under the Icon you can purchase chests with.

I would like to know if there will be no more MOTDs from now on? Will there only be those "Special Events"?
Or did I simply not see any usual MOTD aside from that?

Arisuneko

Can someone explain the purchase options of the tickets?

- Season Ticket 2015
- SPL 2015 (EU) / (NA)

And are the rewards given sort of like checkpoints or do you actually have to spend the points and start collecting all over again?

Everythings good.. apart from the ticket system thing.

What about everyone who have limited time during the week?
Sure i agree that you can´t have everything all the time, but atleast there has to be some sort of chance for us who cant play smite 2-4 h a day depending on how the matches go. Atleast put those skins in a treasure chest later on or something.

So how long would I have to get the Kuku skin? It says the matches start May 14th and go for 7 weeks. So do I have over 2 months to get 200 wins or until May 14th?

Atleast put those skins in a treasure chest later on or something.Assuming that you start now and that the event lasts until Jan. 1, 2016 (end of Season 2), that is approximately 8 months to finish the event or ~240 days.

If you win a game a day, that is still over a month left before the event ends. Plus, they have the voting thing starting in May, so there's a chance to win points there as well.

I actually think you get all of Season 2 to get the points. As far as I'm concerned the fantasy points event continues into the summer, so you have plenty of time.

Not really. The rewards are limited.
