    Please no, that ult was total garbage, as well as her entire old kit. Please stop talking about Nox' old kit, it's the worst kit ever released on Smite, even more so when you know she is a squishy mage. All that kit did was weak damage with no survivability, no mobility, weak control and anti-synergy. Her ult was doing less damage than other mage ults, even if the target was spamming abilities. That kit would be still worse now, knowing the S3 meta leaves no place for mages with no mobility. Not to mention that kit was totally unimaginative and boring. You can say all you want about her current kit lacking originality, her old one was still worse.

    I fucking loved Nox's old kit. She could virtually ignore heavy burst with her shield and possibly stand her own against Awilix if she had remained up until now, and she could shut down a mage with such relative ease. Loved it when her old ult didn't have a startup so I could easily destroy anyone right after using the combo.

    Current Nox is just a watered-down version of Scylla with damage that needs to be confirmed with 1 and a horrible passive.
    Actually back to Smite but my love for the forums isn't really the same anymore. May most likely not post god concepts again.

    Since forums are dying, feel free to join the official smite forum discord where most retired members chill.

    Alright, I just took a look at her original kit, and while my initial impression was "Wow, this sucks, you can just survive the ult by not using abilities," it actually sounds fine. I don't really get how nobody could work their head around this kit. I'd like to see it return on a new god. Actually, no, she's too much like Scylla now. Junk what we have and bring back old Nox.

    I didn't mention it in the original post, but I am a level X Nox main. I mained her ever since she got her first buffs. I absolutely loved her old kit, but I can do decent work with her new kit as well.

    My complaint with this new kit though, is that her old is just a "chuck it in and run" playstyle. It's too much like 'Release the Kraken' for my liking. Huge AOE impact ult that requires no skill to hit. Like I said, you chuck it into the middle and let the AOE do the rest.

    Plus, it has this weird defense mechanism tacked onto it that makes NO sense at ALL. Like, who is going to use this ult in defense? Like, you are getting ganked and your first instinct is to throw your ult? NTY! Her old ult offered nice control and tempo that could be used at the start of fights, or at the end of ones. It could be used to pick people off while micro managing others.

    Her playstyle is that of a control mage, not an aoe burst mage.

    BUT BOOM! Her old ult won't work with her new kit! This is where my idea comes in.

    Shadow Lock: Now does damage to minions. Channeled ability. Silences the first enemy god hit.

    Siphon Darkness: Delayed Explosion. AOE. Enemies caught in the explosion are now rooted for 1 second.

    Night Terror: Old ult.

    Boom, shes fixed! You can now lay down a sweet combo. Lay down Siphon Darkness and immediately Shadow Lock them to silence them. If the enemy stays too long, they are caught by the delayed damage and are rooted for 1 second. This gives you the opportunity to properly use Night terror on the rooted god. If they try to escape using their remaining Hp, Night Terror will ensure that they will not use their escape or they will die.

    This offers Nox even more counterplay. Now that her Shadow Lock is now a silence, AA based gods and now Auto her while she channels, leaving her open. Her Siphon Darkness is now a delayed root that offers counterplay by having enemies not stand in it for too land lest they be cc'd. Her old ult offers counterplay as well, as you can avoid using your abilities.

    Boom, shes fun again!

    That's because she has too much Aoe and not enough control. Get rid of her new ult and add the old one and now shes a top tier utility mage instead of a burst aoe teamfight mage.

    She'd be unviable in her old state.
