MISC

Co-Op – Medium Difficulty
In this patch, we are introducing a more challenging Co-Op experience by converting all four of the existing Co-Op queues to a Medium difficulty. This difficulty is by no means going to challenge the higher level players, but is meant to give a more enjoyable option to the average and new players as they become more comfortable with SMITE.

For now, all of our existing Co-Op queues will be converted to the Medium difficulty, with the addition of a new Arena (Easy) queue that will continue to be recommended for our new players.

Co-Op queues:

  • Arena (Easy)
  • Arena (Medium)
  • Joust 3v3 (Medium)
  • Conquest (Medium)
  • Assault (Medium)
  • All of the rewards for playing the Co-Op queues will remain the same.
  • All of the Practice queues will remain at the Easy difficulty.

Logitech Illumination Effects

  • Added option to Enable/Disable in Options → Controls.
  • Default will be off.

VGS Enhancements

  • VVGD will now show how many seconds left till your Ultimate will be available.
  • Change to how other player skins are shown on low spec PCs.
  • Now only engages when on 32-bit machines on Minimum World Detail settings (requires restart).

Updated Hunter Standard/Arena Recommended Item builds.

  • Ninja Tabi → Warrior Tabi.
  • Bluestone → Death’s Toll.

 
 

BALANCE CHANGES


This is an exciting time of year as we prepare for the SMITE World Championships and start designing larger changes for Season 3. With those two events coming up early in 2016, the balance changes in this patch are very much focused around having a solid competitive experience to wrap up Season 2.
 
Anhur
ANHUR
It’s been a little while since Anhur had some love. We wanted it to be more rewarding to land all eight hits of Desert Fury, and adding 5% scaling per hit should allow this ability to feel more potent when used effectively.

Desert Fury: Increased Physical Power scaling for 15% → 20% per shot.
 
Arachne
ARACHNE

Web: Arachne no longer loses web trails when her target becomes CC immune.
 
Bellona
BELLONA

Fixed her T-posing in certain situations.

Shield Bash: Increased Mana cost from 60 → 75.
 
Chiron
CHIRON
Chiron was galloping past some of the other Hunters when it came to his overall performance, so we wanted to curb away some of that horsepower to rein him in (puns intended). With these adjustments he will be making his grand entrance into League play.

Chiron no longer counts as a Healer for Assault.

Training Exercise: Reduced damage from 70/125/180/235/290 → 70/120/170/220/270.

Masterful Shot:
Increased Cooldown from 14/13/12/11/10s → 14s at all ranks.
Reduced Slow from 25/27.5/30/32.5/35% → 25% at all ranks.

Giddyup!:
Fixed cancelling ability and still having no movement penalty.
Fixed rank 5 dealing True Damage instead of Physical.
 
Hel
HEL
Hel’s become very popular in the current meta, and this popularity has highlighted the potency of Inspire. No longer a sleeper, Hel’s getting an adjustment to the scaling of her Heal, and the Cooldown of her primary burst.

Repulse/Inspire:
Reduced Magical Scaling on Inspire (Heal) from 50% → 30%.
Increased Cooldown on Repulse and Inspire from 10s → 12s.
 
Khepri
KHEPRI
Round four on Khepri! The Hug Bug continues to dominate, and overall it’s thrilling to see one of our most true support characters excel. That said, the changes below should help put him better in line with a reduction to Rising Dawn Protections and removing an element of Scarab’s Blessing that was a bit more than it needed to offer.

Rising Dawn: Reduced Damage Reduction from 20/25/30/35/40% → 10/15/20/25/30%.

Scarab’s Blessing: No longer provides Power.
 
Nu Wa
NU WA

Fire Shards: Fixed voice lines not playing when casting ability for all skins.
 
Sol
SOL
Just a small adjustment to Sol this patch. Overall we’re happy with her performance, but felt the length of the Slow didn’t pair well with the difficulty of application.

Stellar Burst:
Mana cost increased from 60/65/70/75/80 → 70/75/80/85/90.
Slow duration reduced from 2s → 1.5s.
 
Tyr
TYR
Tyr often struggled to compete early on against other laners, especially since he needed to invest a point into his stance switch. By increasing the base damage on Power Cleave, he should be in a better position to box enemies and clear minions more effectively.

Power Cleave: Increased damage from 60/100/140/180/220 → 80/115/150/185/220.
 
Xing Tian
XING TIAN
Xing Tian has continued to perform exceptionally well. His high base damage numbers and % damage option allowed him to build exceptionally defensive while still being a top damage dealer. The changes below are designed to bring his Health more in-line with aggressive Guardians, and take the edge off of the damage he deals while also applying Crowd Control.

Reduced Health per level from 100 → 90.

Hook Slam:
Axe Damage 30/50/70/90/110 → 30/45/60/75/90.
Slam Damage reduced from 60/100/140/180/220 → 60/90/120/150/180.
 
Xbalanque
XBALANQUE
Xbalanque has long performed at the top of the competitive Hunter pack, and has been one of the most dominate late-game carries. His high ability damage has also made him potent through the early and mid-game, and combined with his reach very difficult to deal with.

Poison Darts:
Reduced damage per Dart from 30/50/70/90/110 → 30/45/60/75/90.
Reduced Physical scaling on additional Poison Damage from 20% → 10%.
 
Zeus
ZEUS

Chain Lightning: Increased bounce delay from 0.2s → 0.3s.
