The Celestial Spirit Xbox One Patch Notes

STATUS: This Xbox One Patch will go live on September 30th!
 

XING TIAN, THE RELENTLESS

Xing Tian

 
Hear the legends of the headless warrior from the East. Long ago, three Emperors warred for supremacy of a young nation. Barely clinging to dominance, the Flame Emperor deployed his greatest general, the warrior-poet Xing Tian. Xing Tian returned to his lord in defeat, but with his spirit unbroken.

He begged to ride out and meet the enemy again, but the Flame Emperor refused. Unwilling to give in despite the loss of his lord’s support, Xing Tian rallied the Flame Army for a final siege of the Yellow Emperor’s Sky Palace. Xing Tian met the Yellow Emperor in single combat. The two titans traded blows up the side of the mountain.

High upon the snow-capped peak, the Yellow Emperor’s blade struck true, beheading Xing Tian. At the base of the mountain, Xing Tian awoke. A new face burned from his chest. With the fire to battle renewed, the headless Xing Tian rose to fight again. For Xing Tian there is no defeat; there is no death. As long as there is a battle to be fought, he will never surrender. And he will never die.
 

ABILITIES

Smouldering Rage - Passive
SMOULDERING RAGE
Xing Tian gains stacks of Smouldering Rage each time he hits an enemy with an ability. For each stack of rage Xing Tian has, he gains HP5. Stacks last 18s.
 
Furious Roar - 1
FURIOUS ROAR
Xing Tian shouts from his chest with great force, damaging enemies and reducing their Basic Attack damage. Enemies also take damage over time based on their maximum health.
 
Hook Slam - 2
HOOK SLAM
Xing Tian first launches an attack with his axe, knocking the opponents into the air before slamming them into the ground and rooting them.
 
Sky-Cutting Axe - 3
SKY-CUTTING AXE
Xing Tian leaps forward, dealing damage to enemies when he lands, and he may leap again within 2s. While in the air, Xing Tian has increased protections, which are refreshed if he connects with a target. Using another ability during this time cancels the additional leap.
 
Whirlwind of Rage and Steel
WHIRLWIND OF RAGE AND STEEL
Xing Tian hits enemies with his axe, hooking them and spinning them on it up to three times in succession, before throwing them. Spinning enemies on his axe does double the damage of the hook, plus an additional 40% per revolution.

TRAINING MAP


In the first step towards improving our new player experience within SMITE, we are introducing a Training Map. The Training Map will take players through a series of single player matches intended to ease a new player into the game. These training matches are currently existing modes within the game already:

  • Joust 3v3 Practice
  • Arena Tutorial
  • Arena Practice
  • These modes may change over time as we continue to tweak and improve the new player experience.
  • The matches on the Training Map will give players a bonus of Favor and XP upon completion.

We have updated the Jungle Practice map, adding some requested features as well as making sure everything is up to date.

  • Added Invincible Odin Target Dummies
  • Items are now purchasable/sellable everywhere on the map

    ITEMS


    Blink
    BLINK
    Fixed issue with camera momentarily getting stuck if blinking into a Janus Portal.
     
    Bluestone Pendant
    BLUESTONE PENDANT
    Bluestone Pendant was an item that offered Mana sustain instead of Health sustain. Unfortunately over the course of balancing it was either too potent or lackluster. This patch we are shifting the item away from a sustain focus. Instead, it will now augment ability damage users by providing a damage over time on enemies hit by abilities. The goal is to have a meaningful choice between waveclear and aggression, or sustain and defences for Physical users.

    This item has been reworked.
    +20 Physical Power
    +100 Mana
    Passive: Enemies hit by your damaging abilities take an additional 30 Physical damage over 2s (max 2 stacks).
     
    Combat Blink
    COMBAT BLINK
    Fixed issues with blinking then continuing to be affected by Crowd Control.
     
    Enchanter Buckler
    ENCHANTER BUCKLER
    Cost reduced from 750g to 700g.
     
    Mail of Renewal
    MAIL OF RENEWAL
    Mail of Renewal is an interesting item that exists to help players persist during and after a fight. We have increased its overall effectiveness while making sure we kept the high end potential of this item from going out of control by making it refresh instead of stack in place. This should make the item more attractive overall.

    • Increased Cooldown Reduction from 10% to 15%.
    • Increased healing from Passive from 10% to 20%.
    • Passive now also activates on Objective Kills (Fire Giant, Gold Fury, Juggernaut, etc.).
    • No longer stacks. Upon a successful trigger it will refresh the current duration.

     
    Weakening-Curse
    WEAKENING CURSE
    100% healing reduction is a potent stat to have on an active. It’s existance has limited the usefulness of gods with healing abilities, as well as trivializing items like Divine Ruin, Brawler’s Beatstick and gods with anti-healing abilities. By removing some of the healing reduction from this item, gods with healing abilities should have a little more breathing room but can still be shut down through itemization and counter picks.

    Reduced healing reduction from 100% to 65%.
     
    Hide of the Urchin
    HIDE OF URCHIN
    Decreased cost from 2500g to 2400g.
     

    GAMEPLAY


    Fixed Banished players getting stuck on top of Medusa statues if created underneath them.
     
     

    BALANCE CHANGES


     
     
    Agni
    AGNI

    Path of Flames: Fixed not highlighting targets.
     
    Ah Muzen Cab
    AH MUZEN CAB
    Bees! (Passive): Fixed Disarm taking longer than 4s to re-apply if Bees! is extended with Basic Attacks.

 
Ao Kuang
AO KUANG
Ao Kuang was seeing very positive performances at the highest levels of play, but struggled in the hands of less experienced players. One of the biggest strengths at higher level play was the low Cooldown nature of Wild Storm. We have shifted some of the power away from this skill in favor of increasing the strength of Dragon Call. The goal is to balance out Ao Kuang over the multiple skill ranges he was being played at.

Dragon Call: Increased base damage from 30/45/60/75/90 to 35/50/65/80/95 per Dragon.

Wild Storm:

  • Reduced Magical Power Scaling from 50% to 40%.
  • Increased Cooldown from 5s to 7s.

 
Awilix
AWILIX
Feather Step: Fixed others not seeing the area of effect fx.

Gravity Surge: Brightened up the pull indicator for Renegade skin.
 
Bacchus
BACCHUS
Fixed The King end of match lobby showing guitar floating.
 
Cabrakan
CABRAKAN

  • Fixed missing shields at Victory screen.
  • Fixed a Basic Attack animation issue after attacking with Seismic Crush.

 
Chaac
CHAAC

Torrent: Fixed a blind spot where targets would not be hit.
 
Chang'e
CHANG’E

Fixed mute not applying when using skins that have the Rabbit speak.

Jade Rabbit (Passive): Fixed Rabbit Passive meter not changing color to Moonlight Love skin.
 
Fenrir
FENRIR
Brutalize: Fixed ability not working on targets being pulled by Khepri.
 
Guan Yu
GUAN YU
Guan Yu is a Warrior who excels around being in a fight, shredding Protections, healing his team and dashing through targets. We wanted to reward him more for doing these things. His Passive will now also build stacks on dealing damage to enemy gods and the Cooldown on his dash was reduced. He should now be able to assist his team with more powerful heals and use his lower Cooldown to be in better positions.

Painless: Guan Yu now builds stacks upon dealing damage to an enemy god, as well as receiving damage.
Warrior’s Will:

  • Increased Slow from 20% to 30%.
  • Reduced Cooldown from 14s to 12s.

 
Hercules
HERCULES
Earthbreaker: Fixed inaccuracies with ground targeter causing targets to not get knocked up.
 
Hou Yi
HOU YI
Ricochet:

  • Improved highlighting accuracy.
  • Fixed not highlighting all targets on 2nd and 3rd trajectories.

 
Janus
JANUS
Unstable Vortex: Improved highlighting accuracy.

Threshold: Fixed debuff tooltip showing incorrect icon.
 
Khepri
KHEPRI
Khepri was brought much more into line with the recent changes, but we still saw him over-performing. By increasing the Mana cost of Rising Dawn and the Cooldown on Solar Flare, choosing to save teammates will become a more impactful choice.

Rising Dawn: Increased Mana cost from 40 to 50/55/60/65/70.
Solar Flare: Increased Cooldown from 15s to 18s.
 
Kumbhakarna
KUMBHAKARNA
Poor Kumbhakarna was underperforming across the board so we looked at some key aspects of hit kit. We brought up the damage and root duration of Groggy Strike as it was a very long channel for not much payoff. In a previous patch we split the damage from Epic Uppercut so that he could deal some more upfront damage but it reduced the Area of Effect damage of the landing. We like the split, but want to bring back some of the reward for hitting players with the landing of the Ultimate.

Sleepy (Passive): Fixed not being targetable by Khepri Ultimate if asleep.

Groggy Strike:

  • Increased base damage from 50/90/130/170/210 to 70/120/170/220/270.
  • Increased Root duration from 1.5s to 2s.

Epic Uppercut: Increased landing damage from 225/300/375/450/525 to 250/350/450/550/650.
 
Medusa
MEDUSA

Acid Spray: Updated the spray fx to be more accurate.
 
Mercury
MERCURY

Fastest God Alive: Increased additional power from 25% to 30% of his movement speed from items.
 
Nemesis
NEMESIS
Fixed AFK skin playing Gamma Slam voice.

Retribution: Fixed an issue that caused Nemesis to go invisible on some clients.
 
Nox
NOX

Nox cannot be pulled from Khepri after she’s used Shadow Lock on a target.

Shadow Step: Fixed an issue with Nox’s shadowstep where ejecting from an ally executed by Ao Kuang could cause her to get stuck on top of terrain.
 
Ravana
RAVANA

Cleaned up some visual issues at Victory screen.

10-Hand Shadow Fist: Increased Health Return from 15/20/30/45/65 to 15/30/45/60/75.
 
Scylla
SCYLLA
Fixed Special Emote not working.
 
Tyr
TYR
Power Cleave: Fixed knocking back players that were using spacebar jump.
 
Ymir (New)
YMIR
Ice Wall: Fixed ranks 2 and 3 being 1s shorter than stated.
