    The rise of kumbakharna!

    THE BIG BOY IS BACK! I have always been an advocate for ol' Kumby. I love seeing people give him the respect he deserves as the best aggro guardian in the game (suck it Ares).

    All rise for infinite CC chains and 50%-0 uppercuts!!!!

    His buff was undeserved. He was a solid and viable pick all along. The only reason why people will pick him more often from now on is because he is slightly over the top now.

    Hes still no match for Geb and Silvanus tho.

    And yet, I have not seen a single Kumbha player yet.

    No matter what they do his kit is always going to be inferior to all the other top Guardians. Giving him damage or .5 extra duration on his Root is not going to stop him from DR'ing himself or a worse teamfight presence or initiation than Athena, Geb, or Sylvanus.

    You guys are making the misstake of looking at Kumbhakarna from a support perspective.

    First and formost, he is a guardian and if we look at his kit, he is the assassin among them. Good ways to initiate on singled out enemies, deescalating combat situations and singling out selected target, then dealing devastating damage to them.

    PapaRodin knows whatsup. You gotta look at Kumba like you would look at Hades or Cabraken (or the newest cancer to Smite Xing Tian). Yeah sure he's a guardian in name and stats, but he as a kit that works great in other roles. Kumba mid can be incredible if your jungler helps you through the early levels. Kumba jungle works well too for setting up easy kills and getting your solo/mid fed.

    Now that his damage numbers are way higher than they need to be, he is extremely effective at the roles he's been meant to play for awhile, people just need to take a step back and realize it.

    I would've liked a redesign. I hate how he looks.

    He feels a bit better now. I'm not sure if I am willing to level Groggy Strike over the 1 though. I haven't yet had a chance to try him in solo or jungle. In the Support role he has very good setups for your team, if they are aware. I comboed off of Xing Tian's ult fling into an epic uppercut for a kill the other day. It was kinda hype. Also, killing a Cupid with a 2 crit is just about the most satisfying thing ever.

    Mage Kumbha is best Kumbha. Why playing him as support? Go damage and destroy them.
