    Nergal, God of Pestilence

    Pantheon: Mesopotamian

    Role: Melee, Physical Warrior

    Lore

    Nergal is the Mesopotamian god of disease, war, destruction, the underworld, and droughts. Like most other civilization, the Mesopotamian used gods to explain the events of the world, for Nergal was the embodiment of droughts and epidemics that wiped out many Mesopotamian cities.

    In one myth, Nergal entered the city of Babylon which was watched over my Marduk, the god of wisdom and creation. Noticing that Marduk looked a bit shabby for a creator god, he insisted to watch over Babylon while Marduk look for some better cloth. Nergal then proceeded to kill everyone in Babylon while Marduk was away because he was bored that there was no war going on at the time.

    But not everything about him is bad as he was also said to be able to cure illnesses and fought alongside kings in battles, but only when he is invoked by the most powerful of priests.

    For his appearance, he is often depicted wielding a mace, with some statues depicting him as a wing lion with the head of a man. This is a really nice design from Artstation

    Abilities

    In Smite, Nergal is an anti-tank warrior. I tried making him a guardian but it didn't really work out....

    Passive: Act of the Gods- Nergal's basic attacks and 1st ability apply 1 stack of Plague onto enemy gods hit, stacking up to 3 times and lasting for 5 seconds. Each stacks of Plague turns 2% of all damage enemies take into true damage. Enemies with the maximum number of stacks will spread 1 stack onto nearby gods within a 20 unit radius every 2 seconds.

    1: Ravage- Nergal swings his mace in a circle around him, damaging and applying 1 stack of Plague onto all enemies hit. Enemies with 3 stacks have their protections reduced instead for 5 seconds.

    Ability type: AOE

    Damage: 40/90/140/190/240 (75% of your Basic Attack Power)

    Protection debuff: 15/20/25/30/35

    Cost: 60/65/70/75/80 mana

    Cooldown: 10 seconds

    2: Scorched Land- Nergal scorch a target area, rooting all enemies in it and desolating the ground for 4 seconds, causing enemies on it to take damage based on a percentage of their current health every second.

    Root duration: 1/1.1/1.2/1.3/1.4 seconds

    Damage per tick: 10/20/30/40/50( 4% of target's currents health)

    Cost: 60/65/70/75/80

    Cooldown: 15/14/13/12/11 seconds

    3: Infectious Wound- Nergal lunges a short distance foward and stabs an enemy with his scimitar, damaging, and infecting a part of their missing health bar for 3 seconds, plus an additional .5 second per stacks of Plague on them. Infected health cannot be healed over, instead, 30% the healing is received by Nergal.

    Ability type: Dash

    Range: 25 unit

    Damage: 80/125/170/215/260 (+65% power)

    Infected Health: 25/28/31/34/37% of target's missing health

    Cost: 70/75/80/85/90

    Cooldown: 16 seconds

    Ultimate: Infestation- Nergal selects an enemy god with 3 stacks of Plague and infest their body for 2 seconds. While inside their body, Nergal is untargetable and drains a percentage of their maximum health every .5 seconds. After the duration ends, Nergal will emerge out of their body and steal a percentage of their power for the next 6 seconds.

    Damage/Life Drain per tick: 4% (+2% per 100 Physical)

    Cost: 100 mana

    Cooldown: 110/105/100/95/90 seconds

    I really love the idea of this god, a character who uses plagues and infections to damage enemies. But man this god concept is broken, every skill inflicts percentage damage. His passive alone could give him multiple kills. If a character were to take 1000 damage with 3 stacks of plague, they would receive 600 true damage. This is an insane amount of true damage, Serquets ult only does 450 true damage and thats his ultimate. For the rest of the skill you need to consider the numbers, a God at max rank typically ends up with 1500-3000 health, percentage damage is really powerful, especially when it scales with Nergals physical power. This god would end up with 200-400 physical power, which would melt any god who fought Nergal. I love the concept but I recommend losing most of the percentage damage.

    Um... 6% of 1000 is 60, not 600

    Also keep in mind that his base damage is extremely low for a Warrior and the percentage damage is what keeps him relevant. Doing some damage calcs against a squishy mage with around 1700 HP and 70 Protections, with Nergal having 300 physical power.

    -his 2 will deal no more than 472 damage (may vary due to it doing current health damage).

    -His ult is 680

    -Add in the damage from 1 and 3 and his combined ability damage is somewhere less than 1900. Factor in protections and he's not 100-0ing anyone

    with the damage combo on his 1 and 3 he could very well easily 100% most mages and hunters, and probably the majority of assassins (as they will generally have around that much health, since they tend to never, or at least very rarely run defensive items)
    Yeah...Right...Sure...And I'm The King of England!
