    Merlin a closer look

    https://www.smitegame.com/news/merlin-a-closer-look

    Well again I'm a bit disappointed because I reference Merlin as more of an older fatherly figure. Yet, they made him younger here on Smite. Not that is a super big issue, but it would just fit him well if he were older.

    3 stances = lots of multi-tasking which I don't mind and I am curious to play him and see how he fairs.

    Merlin is popularly depicted as getting younger as he ages rather than older, if not living time backwards. not saying that's the most classic of lore but it's popular.

    his 3 stances work like Raijin's ult. you hit your ult, then you hit skill 1,2, or 3 to stance change (alternatively you can hit Ult Ult to jump ahead in the skill cycle, etc)

    But isn't Merlin older than Arthur? Yet here on Smite, Arthur looks older than the Merlin they going to put out LOL. If you give a majority vote, people's perspective of Merlin will give you the older fatherly like wizard. Shesh at least make Arthur look younger than Merlin, but w/e it is what it is. Maybe it's hip now that Arthur is the father figure and Merlin is the younger seeking Arthur's wisdom

    If they ever make Sir Lancelot a character and he looks grandpa, I'm done with that Pantheon.

    I expected older but it works, he can still be a fit 50 year old like this.

    I'm glad he has a beard at least =)
