New God: Khepri


Passive : Fortitude
Every 5s, Khepri applies a shield to himself and nearby allied gods for 3% of the target’s Maximum Health for 15s. The rate is slowed to every 10s while in combat (max. 15%).
Abduct
Khepri lunges forward, dealing 80/140/200/260/320 (+40% of his Magical Power) damage to enemies he passes through. If he connects with an enemy god he stops, grabs them, and starts pulling them backwards. Enemies are Crippled for the duration of the pull. Cost: 60. Cooldown: 15s.
Rising Dawn
Khepri rolls the sun forward, setting ablaze all enemies it touches, reducing Physical Protections by 5/10/15/20/25%, and dealing 12/15/18/21/24 (+5% of his Magical Power) damage every .3s for 3s. Allies that are hit take 30/35/40/45/50% reduced damage from enemies for the duration. Cost: 40. Cooldown: 10s.
Solar Flare
Khepri calls down the sun's ire at the target location, dealing 40/80/120/160/200 (+30% of his Magical Power) damage and rooting all targets in the area for 1.3/1.4/1.5/1.6/1.7s. Cost: 60/65/70/75/80. Cooldown: 15s
Scarab’s Blessing
Khepri blesses an allied god, immediately cleansing them of all Crowd Control as well as granting them 5/10/15/20/25 Power, 20/25/30/35/40 Movement Speed, and immunity to Slow effects. If the marked ally would die while blessed, they are instead revived with a 40/45/50/55/60% of their maximum Health at Khepri's location. Cost: 80/90/100/110/120. Cooldown: 90.

Gods - Balance/Updates/Fixes


General
More Gods have had persisting recall fx cleaned up: Agni; Ah Muzen Cab; Cupid; Freya; Guan Yu; He Bo; Isis; Mercury; Nu Wa; Odin; and Ymir.
http://hzweb.hi-rezgame.net/smite-web/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/standardaokuang.jpg
Ao Kuang
Wild Storm
Fixed Polynomicon Passive activating on target when cast at max range.
http://hzweb.hi-rezgame.net/smite-web/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/standardahpuch.jpg
Ah Puch

http://i.imgur.com/Q7LqbH4.png
We removed the Slow on his Ultimate entirely. His Ultimate was too potent and offered little counterplay, especially when paired with the Slow on his Undead Surge. We like his burst playstyle and zone control, but we felt the Ultimate granted him too much safety, and removing the Slow takes away some of this safety.
Fleeting Breath
Fixed this skill dealing unintended damage. The bonus damage was counting an extra heal stack.
Empty the Crypts
No longer Slows enemies hit by Wraiths.
http://hzweb.hi-rezgame.net/smite-web/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/1919.jpg
Athena
Preemptive Strike
Fixed being able to reset her Basic Attack progression when spam cancelling ability.
Defender of Olympus
Fixed her arrival fx persisting on Ally after her death.
Fixed audio from ability persisting after death.
http://hzweb.hi-rezgame.net/smite-web/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/2037.jpg
Awilix
Moonlight Charge
Fixed knockup duration being shortened if target was jumping.
Gravity Surge
Fixed an issue where could not pull Hou Yi during Divebomb.
http://hzweb.hi-rezgame.net/smite-web/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/1809.jpg
Bacchus
General
Fixed some missing voice over lines when destroying objectives.
http://hzweb.hi-rezgame.net/smite-web/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/2047.jpg
Bellona

http://i.imgur.com/Q7LqbH4.png
Bellona’s kit has many strengths, and in this patch we wanted to hit key points where we felt this strength was too much. The Slow granted from Shield Bash was too potent for a single point investment, and late game Eagle’s Rally was coming up too often. This should allow for more counterplay at both early and late game stages.

Shield Bash
Reduced Slow from 30% to 15/20/25/30/35%.
Eagle’s Rally
Increased Cooldown from 75/70/65/60/55 to 75s at all ranks.
http://hzweb.hi-rezgame.net/smite-web/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/1966.jpg
Chaac
Thunder Strike
Fixed Mana display issue when cast with full Passive.
Rain Dance
Fixed Mana display issue when cast with full Passive.
http://hzweb.hi-rezgame.net/smite-web/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/standardchange.jpg
Chang’e
Crescent Moon
Improved the accuracy of the Arc.
http://hzweb.hi-rezgame.net/smite-web/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/1784.jpg
Freya
General
Updated weapon trails for Standard, Frost Maiden, and Mastery skins.
http://hzweb.hi-rezgame.net/smite-web/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/standardkumbhakarna.jpg
Kumbhakarna
Passive - Sleepy
Fixed getting stuck on top of Arena walls after being executed from Ao Kuang.
http://hzweb.hi-rezgame.net/smite-web/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/lokistandard1.jpg
Loki
General
Fixed mis-colored teeth for Mastery skins.
Fixed Loki’s hands clipping through his face on Infiltrator Victory screen.
Vanish
Updated art for buff icon.
Assassinate
Fixed Loki not playing stab animation when dealing killing blow.
http://hzweb.hi-rezgame.net/smite-web/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/1915.jpg
Ne Zha
Wind Fire Wheels
Fixed being able to go inside towers after using on target.
http://hzweb.hi-rezgame.net/smite-web/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/1872.jpg
Neith
General
Fixed the end of match music playing over her custom Victory music.
World Weaver
Fixed Standard voice playing when using ability with Carnaval skin.
Fixed a rare issue where ability fx persist at the end of match.
http://hzweb.hi-rezgame.net/smite-web/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/2036.jpg
Nox
Shadow Step
Fixed targets displaying incorrectly at Low Shader Settings.
http://hzweb.hi-rezgame.net/smite-web/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/standardosiris.jpg
Osiris
Judgement Tether
Fixed Osiris able to walk through players while ability is active.
http://hzweb.hi-rezgame.net/smite-web/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/Ravana-Tyrant.jpg
Ravana

http://i.imgur.com/Q7LqbH4.png
Ravana is in a much better place since the last changes, but we wanted to bring him up a little more. We increased the damage of his Overhead Kick and 10-Hand Shadow Fist slightly to help him trade better, and in conjunction with this allowed him to avoid damage and heal slightly more. These changes should bring out the dueling strengths that we like in Ravana.

Overhead Kick
Reduced Cooldown from 16/15/14/13/12s to 14/13/12/11/10s.
Increased damage from 55/90/125/160/195 to 70/105/140/175/210.
10-Hand Shadow Fist
Increased Health Return from 10/15/25/40/60 to 15/20/30/45/65.
Increased damage from 115/140/165/190/215 to 120/155/190/225/260.
Mystic Rush
Fixed a rare occurrence where Ravana could get stuck in a wall from Janus Portals.
Fixed buff timer always showing 4s for each rank.
http://hzweb.hi-rezgame.net/smite-web/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/standardratatoskr.jpg
Ratatoskr

http://i.imgur.com/Q7LqbH4.png
Ratatoskr is meant to be a mobile menace. Unfortunately, his mobility made him too safe and frustrating to handle. Ratatoskr can now only Dart 3 times maximum, and his Ultimate will take longer to get Ratatoskr to safety. He should have some risk of engaging into the enemy team, and these changes should allow enemies the chance to capitalize on greedy plays.

Dart
Decreased distance traveled from 40 to 35.
Is now limited to only 2 resets of Dart within 10s, for a maximum of 3 dashes.
Through the Cosmos
Increased setup time from 1s to 1.5s.
http://hzweb.hi-rezgame.net/smite-web/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/2030.jpg
Sylvanus
General
Fixed lighting issue for Dr. Vanus Defeat screen.
Nature’s Protection
This Passive now only triggers on melee Basic Attacks.
http://hzweb.hi-rezgame.net/smite-web/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/standardxbalanque.jpg
Xbalanque
Branching Bola
Fixed the fx turning off after recalling.

How much for Freya's skin?

Syelle
07-29-2015, 04:34 PM
LOVE HIM! Mostly because he reminds me of the Priest class from WoW. His ult is Guardian Spirit+Leap of Faith, his 2nd is Power Word: Barrier+Penance and his passive Power Word: Shield.

GongsunYiru
07-29-2015, 04:35 PM

Why the fuck? His ult is already a shitty version of thor ult.

McKnightrider
07-29-2015, 04:38 PM
A lot of the changes were good. I don't understand the Bellona nerfs. Everything in her kit has been nerfed almost twice now.
.
.
Shield of Regrowth
•Increased movement speed bonus from 25% to 35%.
•Increased Passive duration from 2s to 4s.
.
This item is STILL USELESS! No one's going to buy it, its still crap. Give it a new passive. All item changes are great. The ancile change is kinda disappointing having that 50 power but its still alright. Soul Eater...wow that item is a must have for so many warriors now! Skins are great too. Overall its a strong patch.
.
.
With that said...Khepri is so unbelievably overpowering its unreal. If kali's on his team it makes her a SS+ god now. He has mage type range with his abilities, you won't even need blink. It's a good patch, strong super OP guardian. Good god changes, good item changes.
.
.
9/10 patch.

Also, I expect on every match someone is going to auto lock Khepri until he gets nerfed, then the number of auto locks will slowly decline. Like how it was for Ratatoskr.

IronShaq
07-29-2015, 04:42 PM
-Khepri's gonna be a real good support.It' the kind of character I like playing.The recolor skin is cool too.
-The other new skins are pretty cool as well,especially the new awilix skin,I hope it's not chest exclusive.
-God balance changes:Overall they did a good job,I'm not sure about the Ah Puch ult tho....
Finally looks like we're getting a good patch. :)

I welcome the nerfs to Ah Puch and Ratbastard with open arms.
The Freya skin is just awesome as well, I'll have to pick it up, hopefully not from a chest.

That being said, I'm extremely disappointed in the new Awilix skin, as I've been waiting for her first one for awhile. The outfit is okay, but Suku and the VP are just awful.

No it wasn't, you just buy SoU and then BAM! you walk in and you virtually kill him by standing in his own ult. If that isn't enough get the Shell Active as well.

I think i am gonna explode.SO WE TELL YOU PROBLEMS WITH RAVANA AND YOU GIVE US THIS?????

Overhead Kick:This was not needet AT ALL!

10 hand shadow fist:Are you mocking us guys?5 increase to his healing.........A FREAKING 5!No root increase.No real heal increase and small dmg increase.

His ult is still same crap.His 3 did not got ANY CHANGE at all.And his 2nd got not needet buff???I think i will go insane here(Sorry guys for being so rude.But this is way too big bullsh*t?I wanted to main ravana and what i got?The biggest crappy buff of all the times???)


Khepri:Now this is where i just had in my head though i am gonna kill ppl.

Passive:Ok this KINDA looks balanced

1st spell:Interresting

2nd spell:Repair me guys.But does this mean khepri literally gives RAVANA ULT to allies???I am about to explode

3rd spell:So khepri have double of ravana root!And its giant RANGE!

Final:Wtf is this.I repeat.WTF IS THIS???Great buffs for adc + they will revive at the end with 60% OF THEYRE MAX HP NEXT TO TANK!Dont let me even begin where your problem roots right now.


I am so glad trio of doom got nerfs.But this ravana troll buff is about to bring me insane(I am sorry for being rude an shouting.But my head is about to explode from how much hirez thinks THATS A BUFF!!!)

The Rising Dawn Patch

Pre-liminary thoughts, subject to change as we go forward.

---Skins and Cards

*Nice new portraits

*The Medusa Skins look awesome. Great job, holy crap.

*Cabrakan Hulk Skin, Now I want a Pillow Fighter Cabrakan to even out all the rage. His abilities look really nice.

*Oh wow, all for one Freya, I definitely want that skin. Looks great. Her voice pack cracks me up.

*Renegade Awilix, looks really cool. Suku sounds hilarious. Friggin' Knight Rider Awilix.

----Arena changes

*YAY! Grass....well it looks nice....

---Items changes

*Breast Plate of Valor; less mana, but cheaper. This will make it a useful pick up if you just want to counter physical damage and gain CD.

*Shield of Regrowth; I don't know... um...sprint when you heal might be great for GTFO, but for casual players, might not see it.

*SOUL EATER! I'm liking this change, I don't know if it'll be ridiculous or not, but it'll be nice to see it getting used again. Key thing not mentioned is that it no longer gives team Life steal. I think I'm gonna try it out for sure.

*Celestial Legion Helm; More magical power, against a hunter who will still be critting a lot. Still don't like it... I think even 3s frequency would be okay.

*Runic Shield; The passive will be useful against the likes of Freya, Chronos, and maybe Ao kuang. A nice niche pick up.

*Ancile; So now you gain HP per stack, so a physical-ish warlocks I guess? This should help warriors a bit in the solo lane. Still don't know if I'll get it. It will have uses for the tankier warriors who plan on supporting later.

*Telkhines ring, HP instead of Magical Protection. It'll still be useful, but 100 HP instead of 30 magical protection? I don't know...

-----Gods

Ah Puch Nerfed: NO MORE SLOW ON ULT. WHAT?! I'll take less damage, that ult was a great utility ult. It had counters in the game. But they feel there wasn't enough counters to it. Winged blade, Heavenly agility... Okay...I don't know...

Bellona Nerfed: Scaling Slow on shield bash, should make her a bit less effective at first, but she'll be still strong later. I am thankful for the longer CD on Bellona's ultimate, it made her too dominate too frequent and able to escape easily.

Ravana Buffed: I thought his current form was fine, but his heal was pretty weak. A nice buff to 10-hand shadow fist with the power and heal increase to that ability. His overhead kick is also getting a CD reduction and more damage, this will make him harder to lock down and more deadly.

Ratatoskr Nerfed: Shorter dash and can only dash 3 times max. This is certainly a nerf to his effectiveness if you could land dashes on separate gods. Longer wind up time for his ult, I agree with this. That'll give him more risk and I like that. He will still be very effective. For the most part, he is still going to kill a ton of people and be very frustrating to deal with.

Sylvanus Nerfed: Only melees root now on his passive. I...don't like this, hunters and basic attack mages are going to wreck him and make him less effective. He is a great guardian, but I don't know if this niche is the way to go.

------------KHEPRI

*Largest Guardian, cool

Passive: Giving teammates HP shields every 5s will make him great for harassment in lane and survival in team fights. If it gets nerfed, probably frequency or how big the shield will be changed. The +15% hp on teammates will be very significant in team fights.

First: Abduct; So kind of a Sobek pull. It will certainly set up enemy gods like Athena's taunt. Grabbing a hunter will certainly hurt. I like the situations this will create good and bad.

Second: Rising Dawn; Prot give, Prot Shred, AND a DOT. They are making him a very interesting laner and team fighter.

Third: Solar Flare; a ranged delayed root...It'll be great for setting up for his pull and to disrupt the enemy team.

Ultimate: Scarab's Blessing; OH SNAP! Super Geb Shield in a way. Dives for days with this ultimate. Give this to your carry, all you gotta do. Towers done, Phoenixes done. Chase down and kill enemy carry. This ult is gonna make some players furious.

*The Voice Pack is great, nice use of filters.
--------Final Thoughts

Art team as always does an amazing job. They never disappoint. The Item Balances, I agree with the majority of them. God changes, they're good, minus Ah puch. I think Ah Puch needed a different nerf really. Bell and Rat will still be very effective, and Ravana will definitely be causing a lot of trouble. Khepri looks ridiculous and fun, but his passive and ultimate worry me. They could be too much.

No it wasn't, you just buy SoU and then BAM! you walk in and you virtually kill him by standing in his own ult. If that isn't enough get the Shell Active as well.

Well, IMO, it was. I'm glad his ult for nerfed.

BigDingus
07-29-2015, 05:02 PM
Well it looks like they addressed everything people wanted on Ratataskor, from the ult start up time to the amount of dashes, they must have listened to the community. I think they're going a little overboard with Au Puch, I like the item changes, more Ravana buffs are good, and people have wanted something to get nerfed more on Bellona, and they answered. Overall nice changes.

07-29-2015, 05:03 PM
Cool Rata nerfs, now he will be actually challenging to use, maybe.
I love the Bellona nerfs, now she can't spam the ult and you have to choose between more disarm time or more slow, cool.
Item changes are meh, shield of regrowt now is a situational viable item for some healers, ancile is stupid why would I build a stacking item for 240 health... breastplate of valor is ok I guess.
Ah puch only needed a scaling on the slow on the 1 like the bellona nerf, now the ultimate is meh and the most annoying mage ability in the game is still here still spammable still stupidly easy and fast to hit.

Khepri seems ok, the ult will be nerfed for sure, its stupid good, the revive is simply stupid on some gods in end game team fights a revive on the adc is so idiotic, so op. Kehpri pull is only a cripple? then any apollo, anhur or whatever cc god can counter this so easily. Or he is cc immune during the cast?

I think i am gonna explode.SO WE TELL YOU PROBLEMS WITH RAVANA AND YOU GIVE US THIS?????

Overhead Kick:This was not needet AT ALL!

10 hand shadow fist:Are you mocking us guys?5 increase to his healing.........A FREAKING 5!No root increase.No real heal increase and small dmg increase.

His ult is still same crap.His 3 did not got ANY CHANGE at all.And his 2nd got not needet buff???I think i will go insane here(Sorry guys for being so rude.But this is way too big bullsh*t?I wanted to main ravana and what i got?The biggest crappy buff of all the times???)


Khepri:Now this is where i just had in my head though i am gonna kill ppl.

Passive:Ok this KINDA looks balanced

1st spell:Interresting

2nd spell:Repair me guys.But does this mean khepri literally gives RAVANA ULT to allies???I am about to explode

3rd spell:So khepri have double of ravana root!And its giant RANGE!

Final:Wtf is this.I repeat.WTF IS THIS???Great buffs for adc + they will revive at the end with 60% OF THEYRE MAX HP NEXT TO TANK!Dont let me even begin where your problem roots right now.


I am so glad trio of doom got nerfs.But this ravana troll buff is about to bring me insane(I am sorry for being rude an shouting.But my head is about to explode from how much hirez thinks THATS A BUFF!!!)

So a god comes with a revive and he is op. Seriously, work for hirez if you think you can do better. Its just a god damn game

07-29-2015, 05:19 PM
am I the only one that thinks this is not actually a balanced change:

Enchanted Buckler / Warded Shield
Reduced base cost of Enchanted Buckler from 820 to 750, and increased the cost of Warded Shield by 70 to make up the difference.

You drop the initial cost by 30 then change the cost to the next tier by more than double that? how's this "making up the difference?"

Especially when you've nerfed the Warded Shield:

Warded Shield
Reduced Magical Protection from 40 to 35.

07-29-2015, 05:25 PM
Good job ruining an already horrible god.



Why the fuck? His ult is already a shitty version of thor ult.

its a less potent version but he can still outperform thor due in other ways ( insane movement, better jungle clear in conquest without needing as much mana = constant ganks, effective damage at all stages of the game because of on-hit effects acorn, hard to catch when he is dashing everywhere etc and even when his dash is down he has an ult to get away / wait for cds / rapidly move from one side of the map to the other.)

Why can't they just change gem of iso so its 25% slow on Single target spells and half on aoe/dot abilities..

Croanatos
07-29-2015, 05:27 PM

Oh yeah? I bet you both my kidneys Arena is the single mode that carries this game and raises population.

CaptainRemo
07-29-2015, 05:50 PM
Damn, removing the slow on Ah Puch really reduces his usefulness IMHO. Late game he kinda falls off but is still fairly useful due to his ability to zone the other team. Now...Kids will just run right through and take menial damage in the process. Meh, I guess its a good thing I didn't use him much to begin with. But HR I would keep Puch in your sights and examine how the elimination of the slow affects his overall usefulness. Honestly, his ult doesn't do much damage, it was more of a mental thing. Kids would get slowed down and decide to disengage because they felt vulnerable. I think this may really impact the God of Decay.

The Nerf to Bellona, perfect. I think she may still be strong, but hopefully more manageable.

And Rata, eh I think he's still going to be a royal pain in the arse. Might be able to actually kill him when he ults now.

Everything else looked good. Really excited for this one!

Khepri looks AMAZEBALLS!!! I can't wait to play him!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So Khepri can use his ult on himself. Essentially giving himself Kali's ult without having to kill anyone...He's going to be insane to deal with in the solo or mid lane now! He has 2 wave clears to boot. His dash to grab goes through minions hurting them while his Isis ball does great damage (120 at lvl 1)

lmao, ah puch was too braindead and OP, mad you can't use 2 OP gods now. They both deserved those nerfs 100%.


That's a fine start on the Bellona nerfs... when are the real ones coming in?
lol as long as she doesn't become useless, however this nerf didn't do much since they revamped ancile and reduced breast cost, now I have a new build with max CDR but same core items. I lose some HP but that's about it.

edit: just realized it says:

Shield Bash
Reduced Slow from 30% to 15/20/25/30/35%.

so end game shield bash actually got buffed (with reduced CD for me yay).

FIrst of all Ah puch, or ah broken has insane damage and is a very top tier god, this is well needed nerf, but he will probably still be played numerous times in the competitive scene. The rat ult isnt a shitty version of thor's ult, both of their ults are pretty damn good, just my opinion have a nice day

Hiebly
07-29-2015, 07:08 PM
Good job ruining an already horrible god.

Yeah... people just need to use Sprint or Heavenly, or use a dash to get out. Once you're prepared to properly deal with it, his ult is only really a problem in tight jungle areas or fights at GF/FG. His ult was already almost useless in lane outside of for zoning (and likewise for Arena & Assault).

I think an acceptable change would be to make it so the slow doesn't stack as high... maybe caps out at 30% slow. Now Ah Puch has no mobility, no utility... I dare say he's worse than Kukulkan now.

Morthoron
07-29-2015, 07:13 PM

His ultimate was pretty much the only reason he was picked in competitive play. His ult for the mid and late game teamfights in the jungle was excellent... that's about all he was good for. He's annoying as hell to fight against but he's not OP.

Now with the nerf to his ultimate I don't see any reason at all to pick him in competitive play. Other gods have much better teamfight abilities. Now that his ult doesn't slow, you'll get hit by maybe 2 corpses tops and then you're clear... that's like 200 damage at level 20. Some ultimate, huh?

brintenius
07-29-2015, 07:22 PM
There's one major problem with Khepri that can be fixed in a very simple way. He faces the same contradictory playstyle that old Nox faced.

There will be times in a tough battle where an ally dying under your ult WILL BE the best course of action. If I have 20% of my health, I will want to die so I get revived with more than 20% of my health. Great. It works for this sort of character because of the limited window under the ult it can be used. Problem: elsewhere in his kit, Khepri makes it REALLY HARD TO DIE. Massive damage mitigation on Rising Dawn is good, but makes it much harder when you want to die. Even worse than with Nox, Khepri's passive, which you can't help, works against his ult. If I'm in a fight with one of my allies, and both my ally and myself want the ally to dive hard and die so he can heal up, it's hard when I give them a shield based on their max health. Also, it says it's maxed at 15%, but a 3% shield lasting for the duration of 3 stacks built will cap it at 9%. Unless building another stack on a god refreshes it, in which case you need to reword that. Also, the duration of Scarab's Blessing isn't listed.

Drybear copied Ah Puch from Heroes of Newerth, and he's trying to take League of Legends stuff for Khepri, but it doesn't even work here. Zilean allows his allies to die, and doesn't keep healing and protecting them first. This just makes the job harder. Khepri's biggest enemy is Khepri.

Instead of poorly attempting to sacrifice your allies, Rising Dawn could heal allies it touches rather than provide damage mitigation, and the ult could provide complete damage immunity in addition to the other buffs it grants for a few seconds, take out the counter-intuitive death on a defense-buffer altogether.

Also, the magical character has a move that purely reduces PHYSICAL protection. Unless he has an ally, he's just not going to use part of his kit. If he's in 1v1 Joust, part of his kit is just useless. Could you please tack on magical protection reduction as well?

A couple minor fixes. Khepri's almost there, but please Hi-Rez, there are some tiny game design flaws that result in massive redundancies.

Blackwinged
07-29-2015, 07:39 PM
Rising Dawn damage mitigation is, as expected, ridiculous right now. You can completely deny a mage's burst from hurting the whole TEAM. Not just a teammate, the whole team can benefit from 50% reduction. That needs to be nerfed before the patch goes live, it's just straight too powerful.

His ultimate is completely annoying, but I don't find it ridiculous OP. The buff it gives is not that big and the differential is really the revive. As mentioned, you will want to die sometimes just to get back with more health, and the counterplay for that is essentially not attacking. Overall, the revive itself isn't the problem.

If I may suggest something (Quite too early, I believe, but anyway), I'd change Scarab's Blessing to heal allies if they survive, to encourage surviving, as well as reducing the health they come back when they revive, to remove that "Shit, I need to die if I want to fight more" aspect. You could also increase the time for the revival (It's instant right now, you could give it a few more seconds) if it becomes too troublesome to deal with.

And please, nerf Rising Dawn. Immediately.

But damn, I feel in love with Khepri. Too much. I'm going to diamond with this guy, I swear.

To be honest, I don't think Khepri is OP now. Sure, his ult can revive himself, but it's basically giving him hp back, so it's like Chronos and other gods. I've watched people on twitch play him and he's not that OP. Sure, some numbers should be brought down a bit, but otherwise... He's pretty balanced.

+1 Hirez <3

kinda wish the slow wasn't remove completely

Valdus
07-29-2015, 09:27 PM
Thoughts:


Cool skins. I have no idea how you haven't run out of ideas yet. Keep it up.

Arena Grass. Neat.

Kepri: Gonna need some balance changes, but I trust you. :)

Breastplate of Valor: Sure. Price reduce is a fair trade for the mana.

Shield of Regrowth: Better.

Soul Eater: Overall better. The protections seem kinda out of place, but I'll find a place for it.

Celestial Legion Helm: Neat.

Runic Shield: Seems unnecessary.

Ancile: So the issue was that no one was buying it, right? Well, now I'm not buying it. I used to. Was my favorite defense item for warriors. I liked the power.

Telekhine's Ring: 100 hp is a joke really. This is a nerf.

Au Puch: I'm one of the guys who doesn't like this nerf. His the slow on his ult was worth more than the damage (he has plenty of damage). He needs that slow. Now Imma dive his ults and kill him.

Bellona: Good. May or may not need more, but good.

Ravana: I don't know. I had a 2.71 K/D on release Ravana. One of the highest K/D ratios on any god I have. I don't think he needs more, he's basically a superior version of Osiris. But everyone else seems to think he sucks. Eh, whatever.

Ratatoskr: Increase settup time on ult is good. The 3 dash limit takes away my favorite aspect of this god. I'd sooner see his acorns nerfed than the total dashes reduced.

SomeBodyIsHere
07-29-2015, 09:38 PM
AP can probably make up the slow with gem of isolation (although it's not going to be as effective)
but yes i agree his slow shouldn't get removed completely....his ult doesn't do dmg at all arleady

I can also see every ares is probably going to get runic shield

However, now? Now he's going to be completely useless.

AP is not safe because of his ult. He's safe because his 1 has a huge ass AoE explosion that is not necessary at all. Seriously. He has an ability for exploding corpses, why do his corpses have to explode so much ;-;

RIP Ah Puch, he's now officially down to Anubis tier (if he wasn't already).

07-29-2015, 10:39 PM
Reading these patch notes made me really happy. I enjoy seeing that Hi Rez is finally going to make a large difference in the big hitters this patch.

Next thing. Fix the gold from kills. In a recent game I was 6 kills ahead of my ADC, but we were both the same level (Which, whatever), and he had MORE gold than I did. And I was farming my lane, maybe not getting as many buffs because I focues on lane, but aside, having 6 kills over is tremendous, but the fact I missed a wave here and there, or didn't get my buff on time is rediculous for that other person in my lane to have 400+ more gold than I have, 6 kills under. Even so, less assists, more deaths, but still ahead of me. That shouldn't be something we let fly by because NOW YOU ARE LETTING THE PVE OVERTAKE THE PVP. Mobas are PVP based games, and you are letting the PVE rule the gold shift, which rules tower takes and game wins.

Finally, nerfs for Brokellona, Brokatoskr and OP puch, 'bout damn time, next it's time to fix the disgusting crit/lifesteal combo on hunters

They didn't need nerfs. . . Brokellona is easily countered by many gods, OP Puch was a glass cannon like every other mage, and Ratabastard is the squishiest little thing ever.

I have played this patch in the pts and i have to say that i LOVE the new god, i think it is very useul in templays, but what is going on with the skins? i come here, i see the cards and I say "I LOVE THEM ALL" and then i see them "in real" and they all are so ugly.... wtf is that awilix's weapon! wasn't there anything uglier for her? i think not and freya.... so awesome in the card... so ugly in the game....
With these patchs we really want them to be released but the day they are.... i was going to buy freya and awilix skins, but no way seeing them in the game. Something is wrong guys.

I fell in love with that Freya skin until I saw the ingame model which looked a bit ugly to me.

Khepri is one of the best gods i have ever seen, both in design and mechanics. I love him and many people agree with me.
But yeah, after Ravana, the new god bitchers have return stronger than ever and they are already trying to butcher him with overnerfs.
The only thing Khepri need nerfed is the 2 and the fact that he can resurrect himself with the ult, that's it

Khepri is fine in my opinion. We need a good support who can match with the top tier supports.

His first nerf wasn't that bad. I had no problems with the reduced damage/the marked target thing.

However, now? Now he's going to be completely useless.

You really think a highly mobile god with tons of damage and a global is going to be useless in this meta? :/

Guys, A.P. was not so OP.. the output dmg is low if compared to other mages but he has more range and he can be a pain for some DoT but .. not OP.. and he's easy to counter, really easy. The ulti slow can be adjusted but a full removed I think will place him in the chum. all the other spells need a tune up in this case or ...

I'm really kind of heartbroken about the AP nerf. I main him in arena and it's really his only escape. The damage is already low enough to where I get killed in team fights even with the slow. Now I have to rush Gem and that's going to decimate his build. Most of my damage comes from the 1-3-2 combo. His ult is more zoning than anything and is now nothing but a breeze now. Everything else looks great but now I regret spending gems on his VP. Now I have to play the range game even more, let alone I have no potential escape from loki or really any assassin. If the ult stayed after death I wouldn't be so upset with this nerf. RIP in peace Ah Puch.

The Rising Dawn Patch Notes / 4th August


All changes I didn't comment on, I'm okay with.

Items


http://hzweb.hi-rezgame.net/smite-web/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/2874.jpg
Breastplate of Valor
Reduced Mana from 550 to 300.
Reduced cost from 2300 to 1950.

http://hzweb.hi-rezgame.net/smite-web/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/2875.jpg
Silver Breastplate
Reduce Mana from 300 to 200.
Reduced cost from 1100 to 950.

Please don't change the above two items, they're in a good place right now and changing them to be cheaper I don't think is the solution. Making these changes I don't believe will kill the items, but can't help them much.

http://hzweb.hi-rezgame.net/smite-web/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/2847.jpg
Soul Eater
If you really want to buff Soul Eater, the following would be the way to do it, not a pitiful +10 Protection aura.
+250 Health
+15% Physical Lifesteal
+15% Attack Speed
Aura - +15 Physical Power and +10% Physical Lifesteal to all allies within 70 units.


http://hzweb.hi-rezgame.net/smite-web/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/3145.jpg
Ancile
Please don't change Ancile to what you have suggested. It was one of the few high-power physical items and turning it into this awkward heavily-defensive item just feels awful. If you want it to become more popular try what I have suggested below instead. The increase in power brings it in line with Dev Gloves and would make it a solid counter item to mages in the hunter role as well as a great pick up playing as a physical in mid or solo against a magical god. Additionally, it should have roughly the same value added as Void Shield which is solid to say the least. Alternatively, at this point you could probably change it into the Magical Protection equivalent to Runeforged Hammer, which would be okay so long as you add some physical power items soon.
+30 Physical Power
+50 Magical Protection
+15% Cooldown Reduction
Passive - You permanently gain +0.5 Physical Power per stack, and receive 5 stacks per god kill and 1 stack per minion kill. (max. 50 stacks).

http://hzweb.hi-rezgame.net/smite-web/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/2883.jpg
Silver Talisman
This change is not necessary, please don't.
Reduced Health from 200 to 125.

Khepri is overloaded. So many things in one ability. Bellona need a balance already and I would barely notice the changes (especially the ult cause I use it oftenly but not too oftenly). The slow seems like a buff. As for Ah Puch, it should be next to impossible to kill anyone with him anymore. His first slow barely does anything. At least buff that Hi Rez. All the other changes seem fine especially the item changes.

DarkStroke
07-30-2015, 04:42 PM
10-Hand Shadow Fist
Increased Health Return from 10/15/25/40/60 to 15/20/30/45/65.
Increased damage from 115/140/165/190/215 to 120/155/190/225/260.

Healing must be 100 at max lvl, damage like 300.


And I dislike the change to ancicle, it is mostly unused already, some buff would be nice, but this change looks like a nerf.

He is useless now. The only reasons he was decent was his burst dmg COMBINED with the slow.
Now his ulti is worse than any other god normal skill.
His 1 can be bypassed easilly.
He has no mobility and no escape.

Ahhh no. The reason he was good was because of his 1 and/or 3 + 2 combo. It is his regular poke which causes an ultimate worth of damage (or more) and an enormous area. That remains. HIs ult has been primarily just to either combo with someone else, in which case the slow is not relevant so whatever the nerf, to secure a kill from a fleeting target - the only area that you can say he is really nerfed but a retreat is almost as good as a kill, or merely to control the battle and make people NOT walk in an area - which remains with slow or not. If you're playing him for his ult, you're playing him SO completely wrong, and it is your fault. Not the character's.

If you're playing him for his ult, you're playing him SO completely wrong, and it is your fault. Not the character's.

I found that Ah Puch is very very ult reliant. If the players are smart they would never step near his corpses or even let it sit there. Usually if there is a hunter, Ah Puch needs his ult to land any damage. It's either that or you must have master prediction skills because his ability are really slow and projectiles move like movement speed fast, without boots. The 2nd ability is too predictable because you have about 1 second to move out. At the more professional level, Ah Puch is useless. As useless as a tanky Hel. It obvious you haven't used Ah Puch or your lvl is not high enough to see how hard it is to use Ah Puch. Gem of isolation seemed to be mandatory on him now.

Pro players are less than 1% of 1% of their userbase. If he was already useless there but overperforming at literally every other skill bracket, then nerfing him doesn't harm his professional standing but it does make him more balanced in the other 99.99% of cases. Buffing him so that he's more viable professionally would necessarily cause him to become mandatory in every match that isn't a professional game.

Gem of isolation was the problem with his kit because it gave every ability slows since every ability did damage, making it too easy for unskilled players to hit every ability but making him only a decent mage on the professional level for his early-game burst damage and late-game objective secure. That with his ult let slows pile up too quickly, making it very difficult to escape his ult without burning abilities or actives, which can win a teamfight in and of itself.

His kit isn't really changing in any way to be honest, people already bought gem of iso, his builds won't change, his burst won't change, his ult will just apply slightly less slows. Considering slows offer diminishing returns, the effect this'll have on how he's played is probably a lot less than you're thinking.

His Animation for the pull also is the distance he pulls you. And because you cant change the animation you cant pull longer distances than the one set "in the animation".

So basically you said what i just did.:p

I just wonder how effective Khepri's Pull will be. Cuz honestly, let's face it, he's going to tank a tower and pull an enemy out of the Tower's range so everyone can beat up on him.

Actually, that sounds like an awesome idea. Add that with Ah Puch's Ult, and you can most likely force the foe to flee or cause them to die.

That Awilix skin is by far the best new one. Better roll 20 chests for it.
Ravana's getting better, though, and Rat's reign of terror is finally over. Actually, now I think his 3 needs a buff.

PLEASE make it possible to disable the grass. The last thing I need is Path of Exile "ambiance" FPS killers.

Oh, and also that ult is DISGUSTING. That is a Zilean ult + free Teleport to God + ENORMOUS speed buff + some power. Hunters were OP before? Whatever the next level is, they're about to hit it.

So are you fixing the bugs that kick people to lobby from loading and force them to restart the client which wont' remember their login on their first match every day? Or the notifications not popping up so everyone gets deserter penalties?

Don't even.

He doesn't get it.

Rat can still 100-0 someone in seconds. His mobility is limited to about 1-2 people now but his damage output is still through the roof.

By the way, I sent you a friend request on Smite.

I'm not getting on today though, I am boycotting Smite until this gem event is over.

So can most mages and any Crit based AA gods.

Free Gems are fine but, the people that invade Conquest when you just want to have fun is just...cancerous.

As Khepri, if you use your 2, then use your 1 to dash through the ball, you should be able to buff yourself, no? It doesn't appear to do so.

Love the new Awilix skin she is my main <3, but is there anyway that Hi-Rez could make the outline on her ult more noticeable i was using the new skin in the pts and it was so hard to tell when someone was in range of my ult or not, maybe instead of the three triangles make it a circle again?

I was wondering something funny and also off topic (sorta). What happens if 2 Khepris hit each other with the grab simultaneously?

That was a hardcore nerf for Ancile. The health was a good idea but the absence of Physical Power makes this item lackluster.

I have more issues with the lower defence. This was clearly an item to help physical tanks, or bruisers, to not lag so much behind. Then again, it was an easy item to be both very tanky and hit like a truck. For the intended purpose, less 25 PP is not lackluster.

The problem imo is, now that we have pen boots for mages and guardians, the lower defence is gonna hurt. There is some HP to compensate for it (and it also helps vs melee targets), but I have my doubls, 350 isn't that much late-mid and late game when a stack item is supposed to shine.

They upgraded Ancile its now:
+25 power
+40 magical protection
+15% cool down
+250 hp at max stacks. 5 hp up to 50 stacks
.
.
It's the only physical item with power, magical def and hp. It's also the only Item that has 3 of any of those. power and HP? Only frostbound and runeforge but that's dependent on your defense. Power and magical defense, just runic and shifters shield. Right now it's a pretty good item I think. I think you'd see it on 90% of all warriors. With Jotunn's you're getting Max CDR.

I think i would like it to stack a LITTLE power and a medium amount of health.

like 5hp and .5 power per stack

so at max stacks it would be

40power
40 magic prot
200 hp
15% cooldown

and just lower the starting power. so it would be like a weaker warlocks sash.

right now, if I stack this in solo lane, i may never kill my mage nemesis and id be better off with current ancile.

Basically means if youre still at quali (first ten games) and you dodged it shows 1/10 played. That is fixed now.

HiRez wth did you do with the Mezmoreyez announcer pack!? It's so much worse now...

The previous "version" may have had too few variations, but at least the lines were really good. This just sounds like the poor out takes accidentally got mixed in there.

At the very least bring back the previous lines and put them in with these ones.

ok so now you took his ult away completely. it does hardly any dmg and it very pointless unless u wanna quick clear of minions why not add more dmg to the ult then. take the slow give more power. there are other gods that needed it more imo, I never had issues playing against Ah Puch, I killed him plenty and I used him well too. so gg on just taking the hammer of doom to a god.

bella I could understand that, the skins are cool and the small fixes are appreciated.

Because nub will never understand the concept of getting winged blade, bead, sprint to counter AP ult slow.
Also HiRez never understand that his ult IS NOT the problem, his 1 IS the problem.

Because they find it amusing... Just like I now find it amusing that Sylvanus can't help out minions since a long time ago, and now Khepri can.

O.o
But, I supose Sylvanus likely heals them more than Khepri's protection helps them.

Well when you like Sylvanus (A tank with a pull, a root, and sustain for him and others ) it seams logical that you like a tank with a root a pull and sustain for him and others ;)

The most important thing is the Rat nerf. It repaired one of the biggest problems with gods that we had recently :D but Breastplate should be 350 mana :(

So I noticed that for Khepri's recolor, on the Patch notes, it was like emerald green, a really bright green. Now in the game, it's a dark green and that makes him look ugly. Who thought that was a better green color? I was going to buy the recolor, because of the bright emerald green, but now it's that green poopy color, so no thanks.

It is stated at several places, that he had a game breaking bug and was now disabled until he is fixed.

The bug made it possible for him after a revive to get double his stats.
