Intelligent Matchmaking of Low Population Regions

  • During low population times, the Matchmaking algorithm will look for players outside the preferred region, taking ping into consideration.
  • This will only occur when no match can be found due to low population.

Season Ticket 2017 – Spring Split

“The Season Ticket has undergone a redesign this year in both how it looks and how it functions. First and foremost, The Season Ticket has now been divided into three different Splits.

Clash Map Update

Clash has quickly become one of SMITE’s most popular game modes! It is a fun middle ground between Arena and other lane based modes, like Conquest. Player feedback overwhelmingly showed that they wanted a new art style besides Greek, so we brought back one of our favorites: Egyptian! Clash now features a completely new art style as well as a new Jungle Boss, Apophis, the Chaos Serpent. It also features a variety of layout changes, while staying true to the core design of Clash.”

Season 4 Conquest Map Update

“Conquest is the primary competitive game mode for SMITE. With each new season comes new challenges to this map. We listened and watched carefully as Season 3 unfolded. In 2016, we saw the rise and fall of many types of metagame, but there were two primary issues we wanted to address: Adding more meaningful choices to early game and enhancing late game objectives. We believe the Season 4 Conquest update will bring a diverse group of strategies with its new start and twists on Gold Fury and Fire Giant!”

Map Changes
  • Small adjustments to Jungle paths have been made to equalize time and distance between objectives on Order and Chaos sides of the map.
    • Both the Order Speed camp and the Chaos Damage camp see a change to their geometry and leash to shift the time it takes to reach the Mid Lane.
      • Players can no longer see into the camp from the Mid Lane.

2017-01-18

minion and jungle changes

“The Experience and Gold rates around the map have changed. Minion Waves are now worth slightly less Experience, while the Jungle holds a little more Experience. This combined with changes to the start of the map, Jungle difficulty, and changes to Bumba’s Mask are designed with the goal of removing the focus on the mid lane.”

Conquest Minion Changes

  • Swordsman
    • XP decreased from 65 60
  • Archer
    • XP decreased from 4540
  • Brute
    • XP decreased from 6560

Conquest Jungle Monster Changes

  • Fixed an issue where Jungle Monster HP scaled at double the scaling rate while dead.
    • The scaling of Jungle Monsters has been adjusted to compensate. All jungle monsters have been adjusted to ensure they spawn near the same health they do in live.
      • For more information on these changes read here : http://smitegame.com/jungle-monster-health-changes/
    • “Since the early days of SMITE, Jungle Monsters have always scaled twice as fast while dead, making camps that were taken consistently tankier than those which were left alive. This has now been removed to keep the pace of the game and the toughness of the camps close. We are also increasing the Base Health per Minute that Jungle Monsters receive.”

    • Removed from the Conquest Map

    • Base Health set to 790

Oracle Harpy Camp (NEW)

  • When we began planning for Season 4 we wanted to focus on addressing some issue with the Conquest map. In the early game there was a much heavier emphasis on Fire Giant side that lead to the duo lane having less to do overall. The Oracle Harpy camp brings some of the early game focus back to the Gold Fury side by giving the duo lanes an objective to fight over. In Season 4 we wanted to add objectives that gave unique types of rewards. Through play-testing we found that tactical advantages like vision or movement were great rewards for these types of objectives.”
    • New type of objective that offers early game tactical advantages in addition to XP/Gold.
    • Contains 2 Oracle Harpies
    • Oracle Harpy (NEW):
      • XP value set to 85

    • Respawn Time: 3:00
    •  Rewards:
      • If a team kills both Oracle Harpies, that team is given vision of the Gold Fury pit for 90 seconds.
        • This vision cannot be countered by Sentry Wards
        • Vision granted by the Oracle Harpies does not reveal Wards nor Stealthed units
        • Neither team gets vision if Kills are split
      • Total Camp XP is set to 170
      • Total Camp Gold is set to 84

Boss – Portal Demon (NEW)

  • Similar to The Oracle Harpy, we wanted to provide more objectives to fight over at key stages of the game. Where Gold and Fire Giant have their purpose, none of them allow for a team to gain a direct positioning advantage. The Portal Demon boss now gives teams flexibility in what objective they want to prioritize by giving them brief control over the Fire Giant pit.”
    • New type of objective that offers late game tactical advantages in addition to XP/Gold for reasons
    • Boss – Portal Demon (NEW):
      • Team XP value set to 100

Season 4 Consumable Updates

Rituals

“A new type of item comes to SMITE as a Consumable! The powerful Ritual Items are designed to enhance the late game experience of SMITE. When your build was finished, there were very few options for players to help end the game. Rituals will now provide way more options, but at a very high cost, especially since you only get one use per purchase. These items will allow skilled players to make truly amazing plays in the late game.”

Features

  • Only usable after Level 10
  • One use per Purchase
  • Provides a single use Relic or Ability-like effect
  • Grouped with Potions of Might and Elixirs on a new “Late Game Consumables” tab

Frenzied Ritual

 Chalices

“Another new Consumable enters SMITE, but these are for the early game. Chalices allow players to invest an initially large amount of Gold for a stack of Potions or Wards that can be refilled. These are priced appropriately to fit well into starting builds.”

Features

  • They work like a stack of Potions
  • Duration is refreshed, not stacked, on multiple uses
  • Have a specified maximum charges

Potion of Magical Might
  • Increased duration from 3m5m

Potion of Physical Might
  • Increased duration from 3m5m

Season 4 Relic Updates

“Relics are seeing a variety of balance changes, as well as two more system changes. The smaller of which is new names and Icons. Relics have been renamed to their historical SMITE names and are also now all actually in reference to Relics, aka legendary objects. The larger new feature is Relic Upgrading! In Season 4 at any time in a match, you may pay 500 Gold to upgrade your Relic for a specified bonus. This adds a good bit of complexity to build order allows for more meaningful choices in selecting which Relics to use.”

  • Previously known as Curse
  • Increased Healing Reduction duration from 5s10s
  • No longer slows
  • Can be upgraded
    • Healing Reduction increases from 50%65% and duration increases from 10s15s

Hand of the Gods

Hand of the Gods was originally designed to be a jungle clear assistance tool, and it will be returning to that form again in Season 4. Using a Relic to secure jungle bosses really took away from gods who had great abilities for this same purpose, so HoG (or Wrath) won’t be filling that niche anymore. To compensate for its loss of jungle boss effects, it is gaining a strong cooldown reduction for getting the killing blow on jungle monsters.”

  • Previously known as Wrath
  • Now deals 300 + 10 per Level Damage to a single enemy Minion or Jungle Monster or Jungle Boss within 12 units. Target will be the one with highest max HP. The  Relic’s Cooldown will be reduced by 30s if you kill a Jungle Mob with it.

Bracer of Undoing

A brand new Relic is making its appearance in SMITE. Bracer of Undoing falls into the realm of Beads and Aegis, by giving an individual player a strong tool to prevent their own death. This Relic allows for players to heavily bait their enemies, thinking they will secure a kill, but it can be countered by Healing Reduction.”

  • Using this item subtracts 3s from all Abilities currently on Cooldown and restores 50% Health and Mana lost within the last 3s. Cooldown -120s
  • Can be upgraded
    • Recent Damage Time increases from 3s5s

Season 4 Item Update

 

“With Season 4, we are making a large number of changes to items with a few goals in mine. First and foremost, we want players to have more control and options over their starting builds. We added new Starting Items and reduced the cost of most Tier 1 items, allowing for players to mix and match items together in ways that haven’t be available before. This should provide a good foundation for players to explore non-traditional roles, such as Warrior supports or Mage Solos. Additionally, Item Passives are more focused on finding opportunities to counter build against opponents. Core stats like CDR and Penetration are found on more items and are tied to more unique effects, allowing for increased diversity when building these stats. Support players will also find a variety of new aura and utility options to assist their team.

With our Season 4 patch, there are many new items, effects, and balance changes and we want players to experiment on PTS with these new choices. We will be watching closely and making final balance and design decisions as PTS unfolds.”

  • Can now sort the store by Crowd Control Reduction % (CCR)
  • New Stat – Penetration
    • Can be found on items available to all gods. It applies the proper pen to your stats depending on if you are Magical or Physical once purchased.

Shoes / Boots

Talaria Boots

“Talaria/Traveler shoes will now only proc on damaging abilities. This is to resolve some core bugs that were occurring. We know this will negatively affect some characters with non-damaging CC abilities, and we will watch those characters closely to see if this becomes an issue.”

  • The effect that gains bonus gold will now only trigger if an enemy is damaged, rather than hit.

Starter Items

Bluestone Pendant

“Bluestone is losing some total Mana and gaining some MP5 to focus it more towards its intended role: Empowering Physical gods with Ability-based clear and poke Damage.”

  • Decreased Mana from 10050
  • Added 5 MP5

Bumba's Mask

Bumba’s Mark is seeing significant changes in Cost Reduction, increased Damage, and the removal of Gold splitting. In Season 4, we want Junglers to have more diverse God selection, builds and more independence. The large adjustments to Conquest synergize with these goals.”

  • Decreased Cost from 800500
  • Removed MP5
  • Added 50 Health
  • Added 50 Mana
  • Increase True Damage on Basic Attacks on Jungle Camps from 1015
  • Increased Ability Damage Bonus on Jungle Camps from 10%15%

Rangda’s Mask is the aggressive cousin of Bumba’s Mask. It can be splashed into early builds to enable and reward players who look have aggressive ganking or roaming playstyles.

  • Costs 500 Gold
  • +5 MP5
  • PASSIVE – Each time you get an assist you gain a stack, or 2 for a kill.  At 6 stacks this item provides 7% Movement Speed and 10% Cooldown Reduction. At 16 stacks this item provides 15 Penetration, 10% Movement Speed, and 15% Cooldown Reduction.

Sands of Time

This Starter Item is a hybrid utility Item that could be utilized by many Mages and some Guardians. While Soul Stone is for pure Damage and Vampiric Shroud is for Health Sustain, Sands of Time is for Mana and Cooldown, a starting stat gap that existed for Support and hybrid Mages.”

  • Costs 800 Gold
  • +20 Magical Power
  • +5 MP5
  • +10% Cooldown Reduction
  • PASSIVE – This item grants 1.5 additional MP5 per 10% of your missing Mana

Soul Stone

Soul Stone is seeing a change to its Passive to have it work more consistently among gods that deal Magical Damage in many different ways. It is also losing the MP5 per Stacks and instead gaining a flat Mana Heal when Stacks are consumed to encourage constant use of the item.

  • New PASSIVE that buffs all Abilities used after stacks are consumed for 3s, instead of only buffing one Ability. Also removed MP5 on stacks.

Swift Wing

Swift Wing is a new utility based starter item that any type of God can utilize. It can especially help Solo Laners who opt out of the Teleport Relic or gods with low Sustain who will be returning to base often.”

  • Costs 800 Gold
  • +100 health
  • +10 HP5
  • +5% Movement Speed
  • PASSIVE – Whenever you leave the Fountain, you gain bonus 40% Movement Speed for 15s. This effect fades when entering combat.

 

Vampiric Shroud
  • Added 4% Magical Lifesteal

War Flag

This item is design specifically to facilitate Warrior and Assassin picks in the Duo Lane or Support Role, and has interesting applications in game modes besides Conquest. This item requires a teammate to make use of its Passive, and allows Warriors to play more as more aggressive versions of their Guardian counterparts. It has distinct advantages from Watcher’s Gift that encourage early game aggression while sacrificing the Gold Bonus.”

  • Costs 800 Gold
  • +10 Physical Power
  • +100 Health
  • +5 MP5
  • PASSIVE – Being in range of Minion or Jungle Camp death without dealing the killing the blow restores 5 Health and 5 Mana to all allies within 55 units, also provides all allies within 55 units with a stacking buff of 1% Movement Speed and 1% Attack Speed that lasts 6s.

  • Added 5 Physical Protection
  • Added 5 Magical Protection
  • Removed 5 HP5
  • PASSIVE – Increased restoration of Health from 712 and Mana from 710
  • PASSIVE – Increased gold for assists from 45

Magical Items

Magical Lifesteal Tree

With some new anti-healing items and some adjustment to healing gods, lifesteal is seeing an increase. As a form of healing that requires damage to be dealt, lifesteal is a fair way to heal.”

Book of the Dead

A new Mage Lifesteal Item has been added to the roster to help Mage sustainability through Magical Lifesteal. This item’s ability to provide Power, Lifesteal, Health and a Health Shield should help Lifesteal Mages round out their stats without adding a purely defensive item to their build.”

  • +100 Magical Power
  • +15% Magical Lifesteal

  • Decreased Cost from 760650

Enchanted Spear
  • Decreased Cost from 15501450

Obsidian Shard
  • Increased Cost from 20502300

Divine Ruin

Mages are great at applying Divine Ruin’s Passive with their large area effect spells, but often times Mages did not want to itemize into a low power Lifesteal Item. Divine Ruin is keeping its name and Passive, but losing its Lifesteal and moving to the Magic Focus tree. With added Magical Penetration to make it easier to use when anti-heal is needed.”

  • Costs 2400 Gold
  • Now upgrades from Enchanted Spear
  • +80 Magical Power
  • +10 Magical Penetration
  • PASSIVE – Enemies hit by your Abilities have 40% reduced Healing and Regeneration for 8 seconds.

Spear of Desolation

Spear of Desolation had an interesting Passive and extreme Power, but the Item saw little use. The cost and unreliability of the Passive combined to make the item less attractive, so it is seeing large changes. This item will now provide Magical Penetration and Cooldown Reduction, to help Mages itemize into stats they really want, but the cost must remain somewhat high for such a powerful stat combination.”

  • Decreased Cost from 38002800 total
  • Decreased Magical Power from 120 → 80
  • Increased Magical Penetration from 1520
  • Added 10% CDR

new: Magical Power and Magical Protection

As the Celtic gods join the battleground, so do some Celtic Items. The first being the new Druid Stone tree that provides Magical Power and Magical Protections. Here we see Void Stone in its new home where it is joined by more new Mage items.”

Druid Stone
  • Costs 700 Gold
  • +20 Magical Power
  • +10 Magical Protection

Stone of Binding

Stone of Binding is a new bridge item for Guardians or Mages who need some defenses. Ensuring all damage types have these sort of options helps our goal of allowing for more unconventional positions and role to exist.”

  • Costs 1700 Gold
  • +20 Magical Power
  • +30 Magical Protection
  • +30 Physical Protection
  • NEW PASSIVE – Successfully hitting an Enemy God with hard Crowd Control will place a buff on all allies within 70 units of user. The buff provides 10 Penetration for 5s.

Sage’s Stone
  • Costs 1400 Gold
  • +40 Magical Power
  • +20 Magical Protection

Stone of Fal

Stone of Fal gives mages the ability to hard counter the opposing mage at a cost. While the ability to reduce huge burst can greatly hinder your opponents, this item is expensive and comes at a loss of power compared to many core Mage items. Finding the right time to build the Stone of Fal will be key to successfully using this new item.”

  • Costs 2900 Gold
  • +70 Magical Power
  • +40 Magical Protection
  • +10% CDR
  • NEW PASSIVE – Anytime you would be dealt more than 30% of your Max Health by a single magical ability, that damage is instead reduced to deal exactly 30% of your max Health. This effect can only occur once every 60s.

Void Stone
  • Now built off of Druid’s Stone item tree
  • Magical Protection increased from 6070
Magical Power and Physical Protection Tree
Celestial Legion Helm

Through many balance changes Celestial Legion Helm became too strong for a reason completely unrelated to its passive, giving mages a very strong source of physical protection in the early game. Celestial Legion Helm is being redesigned as an opposite to Lotus Crown. Now when players receive a heal from a god with this item they will gain increased Physical and Magical Power. Additionally this item provides the user with more raw power at the cost of protections allowing the user to be more powerful instead of defensive.”

  • 60 Magical Power
  • 30 Physical Protection
  • 20 MP5
  • NEW PASSIVE – Any god affected by your ability heals gains 20 Increased Physical and Magical Power for 5 seconds

Jade Emperor's Crown

Some Aura effects are being shifted around in Season 4. Previously, Runic Shield and Witchblade were counterparts of reducing opponent’s Power and Attack Speed. However, Witchblade was available to all gods, while Runic Shield was available only to Physical gods. To balance these effects out, Witchblade will now only reduce Attack Speed, Runic Shield will only reduce Magical Power, and this new item will reduce Physical Power.”

  • Costs 2150 Gold
  • +20 Magical Power
  • +60 Physical Protection
  • +100 Health

Chronos' Pendant

Chronos Pendant is receiving a new Passive to make it the premier Mage Cooldown Item. The new Passive allows you to overcap CDR and especially benefits low Cooldown Mages There is also has an additional element of skill to it, allowing low Cooldown Mages to time their abilities to maximize the Passive even more.”

  • Cost Increased from 24002900
  • Decreased Magical Power from 7560

Fortified Scepter

The Magical Power and Health tree now branches into a new side, with Crowd Control Reduction added and Mana removed. This stat continues through the tree to add CCR to some old items, allowing Mages who need extra survivability to gain CCR as well as Health without using extra build slots.”

  • Costs 1350 Gold
  • +50 Magical Power
  • +150 Health
  • +5% Crowd Control Reduction

Gem of Isolation
  • Now builds off Fortified Scepter
  • Removed Mana
  • Added 10% Crowd Control Reduction

Ethereal Staff

As SMITE develops, our design goals have become more focused. All items that had “Stat Conversion” Passives have been phased out, and now Ethereal Staff, the last one remaining, also will see an update. We feel that unique Passives and clear itemization towards specific stats are much healthier for the game than stat conversions. The item finds a new home as a way to maximize Damage on low Cooldown Magical gods, especially against tanky opponents.”

    • Costs 2700 Gold
    • Now builds off Fortified Scepter
    • +90 Power
    • +200 Health
    • +20% Crowd Control Reduction
    • NEW PASSIVE – your Abilities deal bonus Magical Damage to Enemy gods equal to 5% of their max Health. This effect can only occur once per God per Ability and every 10 seconds.

Rod of Healing

Both Rod of Healing and Rod of Asclepius are having their healing buffs adjusted to be more potent in combat. As healing continues to be a hotly debated subject in SMITE, we feel that out of combat healing is much less fun for all players than in combat healing. Season 4 adds more items to counter healers, but that means healers need some additional tools to reward them for playing & itemizing well.”

    • Decreased Aura of increased Healing from 10%5%
    • Added 2nd AURA – If you are in combat, you provide 10% additional Healing to allies within 70 units

Rod of Asclepius

Demonic Grip
  • Increased Cost from 22802300 
  • Attack Speed reduced from 25%20%

Telkhines Ring

A new luxury tier item has been added with a re-design of Telkhines Ring. Previously the item had very limited viability and was mostly outclassed by Demonic Grip. The new Passive clearly separates the two items into different cost tiers and use cases. Demonic Grip serves as a better item against tanks by reducing target’s Protection by a percentage while Telkhines Ring takes hold as the more selfish option, increasing only your own Power to take down squishy enemies.”

  • Increased Cost from 21252800
  • Increased Magical Power from 4580
  • Decreased Attack Speed from 30%20%
  • Removed old Passive
  • NEW PASSIVE – Successfully hitting enemies or structures with Basic Attacks gives you a buff of 10 Magical Power.This buff stacks up to 5 times and lasts 5s.

Shaman’s Ring

As more Magical Power gods become played like Hunters, more items should be available for them to opt into. Instead of splashing Lifesteal items, these Mages can build Shaman’s Ring for some solid sustain while still contributing toward their primary build goals. The item also has some interesting applications on hybrid build Guardians in non-support roles.”

  • Costs 2400 Gold
  • +40 Magical Power
  • +30% Attack Speed
  • PASSIVE – Each Basic Attack that hits an enemy God heals you for 2% of your maximum Health and Mana per hit.

PHYSICAL ITEMS

Physical Lifesteal
Bound Gauntlet
  • Removed Attack Speed
  • Added 75 Mana
  • Added 10% Crowd Control Reduction

Soul Eater

Soul Eater has long been a heavy sustain or tanky splash item for Hunters and Assassins, usually causing frustration of their opponents. The item has be repositioned as a hybrid sustain item, providing the stats that class needs to stay in the fight longer and filling a niche that previously had no items.”

  • Increased Cost from 20002200
  • Removed Attack Speed
  • Added 200 Mana
  • Added 20% Crowd Control Reduction
  • NEW PASSIVE – Hitting an enemy gods with a Basic Attack heals you for 2% of your max HP per hit

Titan's Bane
  • Increased Cost from 20502300

Brawler's Beat Stick

Brawler’s Beat Stick was too often picked up on all Assassins, even when there was no healing on the enemy team. Penetration is a valuable stat but this item should not be so strong as to be picked up every game. It is seeing a slight increase to the Healing Reduction and decrease in Penetration to encourage more varied builds and stronger counter building.”

  • Decreased Cost from 24002200
  • Decreased Physical Penetration from 20 15

Jotunn's Wrath
  • Increased price from 24402450.

The Crusher

The Crusher is no longer focused on crushing the enemy structures, but crushing them with Abilities. Hunters who have more power in their Abilities have lacked an item that specifically helped them scale into the late game with Basics, but allowed their Ability based kits to shine. With Power, Attack Speed, Penetration, and Cooldown Reduction for doing what Hunters do, this item should fit nicely into builds that want to focus on Ability usage instead of raw Basic Attack Damage.”

  • Costs 2300 Gold
  • +30 Physical Power
  • +15% Attack Speed
  • +15 Physical Penetration
  • PASSIVE – Successfully hitting an enemy god with a basic attack will subtract 1s from all your abilities currently on cooldown. This effect can only occur once every 5s

Shield of Regrowth
  • Remove from this tree
  • Now built off of Glowing Emerald

Gladiator’s Shield

Assassins and Hunters have had strong bridge items in Ichival and Asi, leaving Warriors with fewer choices in how they transition their builds. Gladiator’s Shield helps fill this gap, providing some key stats for Warriors and a bit of extra sustain during lane skirmishes.”

  • Costs 1700
  • +15 Physical Power
  • +40 Physical Protections
  • + 10% CDR
  • NEW PASSIVE – Anytime you hit an Enemy God with an Ability you are healed for 2% of your max Health and Mana

Cudgel
  • Decreased Cost from 750650
  • Added 5 Physical Power

Runeforged Hammer

Runeforged Hammer in Season 3 was on the way to viability with a strong synergy with Slows, but the effect was over complicated and hard to optimize within a team. This new streamlined Passive is more self contained to the owner of the item, and should be an easier decision on when to pick up based on your team comp.”

  • Power increased from 3040
  • NEW PASSIVE – Enemies take 10% Bonus Damage from you if they are affected by any form of Crowd Control.

Shillelagh

Another new Celtic item has found its way into the shop. This blunt weapon of Irish origins will help bring more parity between the Physical Cudgel Tree and the Magical Sash Tree by providing a new branch with Power, Health and Mana.”

  • Costs 1500 Gold
  • +10 Physical Power
  • +100 Health
  • +100 Mana

Blackthorn Hammer

The dark and magical bark of the blackthorn tree creates a new hammer weapon for the gods of SMITE. While Frostbound and Runeforged provide generally aggressive effects, Blackthorn Hammer provides a defensive one. This hammer should help Warriors and possibly Assassins execute those stunning redlined health escapes they love so much.”

  • Costs 2300 Gold
  • +30 Physical Power
  • +200 Health
  • +200 Mana
  • PASSIVE – If you are reduced to below 30% HP, all of your Cooldowns are reduced by 3s, and all of your Abilities cost 0 Mana to cast for the next 5s. This effect can only be activated once every 60s.

Hunter's Bow
  • Costs 1150 Gold
  • Built off of Short Bow
  • +25% Attack Speed

Silverbranch Bow

Season 3 was the introduction of Magical ADCs to the Duo Lane. We like the variety, but the items provided to Hunters were largely made with the assumption that they would be fighting other Hunters. Silverbranch Bow will help Hunters have an Ichival-like item that helps them against Magical Damage dealers in the laning phase.”

  • Costs 1700 Gold
  • Built off of Hunter’s Bow
  • +10 Physical Penetration
  • +30% Attack Speed
  • NEW PASSIVE – Every successful Basic Attack increases your Physical Power by 10 and reduces your target’s Magical Power from items by 15, for 3s. (Max 3 Stacks)
Physical Power and Movement Speed

In Season 3, we experimented with a melee only item which was very interesting. For Season 4, we are making the entire Katana tree melee only, allowing us to create even more specialized items for Warriors and Assassins without having to worry about Hunters breaking them or people buying them on accident.”

Katana
  • Decreased Cost from 800700

Masamune

The Melee only tree has two options that focus more on Assassin styles of play so we wanted to create a new item for Warriors that aid them in one of their primary roles, backline diving and Disruption.”

  • Costs 2500 Gold
  • +50 Physical Power
  • +100 Health
  • +10% Movement Speed
  • PASSIVE – For each Enemy God within 55 units of you, you gain a stacking buff that provides 5 Magical Protection and 5 Physical Protection. Stacks up to 5 times.

Physical Power and Critical Chance
Hidden Dagger
  • Cost increased from 670700

Rage

Rage has struggled to find a place in Crit builds as there are many powerful options. To help Rage compete better, it is gaining an exciting new Passive that could allow Hunters to temporarily reach very high Crit Chance off of a single item. Its cost is being to compensate for the power shift.”

  • Decreased Cost from 24002200
  • Removed old Passive
  • NEW PASSIVE –  Earning a Kill or Assist fills you with rage, increasing your Critical Strike Chance by 20%. This buff can stack up to 3 times and lasts 8s.

Ritual Dagger
  • Previously known as Ritual Dagger
  • Removed old Passive
  • NEW PASSIVE – Gain 20% Cooldown Reduction on your Relics.

Hastened Fatalis

Fatalis’ effect can be a powerful tool to basic attack heavy characters. While generally considered a bit weak to build, we want to allow those characters to feel good about going into a legitimate and powerful effect.”

  • Added 10 Penetration
  • Decreased Attack Speed from 30%20%
  • Increase cost from 21402150

Cursed Blade

Cursed Blade and Witchblade are seeing some large stat changes to make them more viable against many gods, as well as making their stats more beneficial to more gods.”

  • Added 5% Movement Speed

  • Decreased Health from 10075
  • Decreased Physical Protections from 2010
Physical Protection and Mana

The Breastplate Tree is gaining MP5 stats and more distinction between its branches. Historically, Physical gods have had poor choices for Mana and MP5. We are expanding their options for Mana in Season 4. Additionally, these items are having their extremely high Protections reduced slightly to compensate for their new stats.”

Breastplate
  • Decreased Cost from 555500

Shogun's Kusari

Shogun’s Kusari is a twist on the traditional auras that support players provide to their team. Instead of a defensive stat, nearby allies will be able to benefit from an increased attack speed when fighting objectives or the enemy team.”

  • Costs 2400
  • +60 Magical Protection
  • +20 MP5
  • +10% Cooldown Reduction
  • +20% Crowd Control Reduction
  • AURA – Allies within 70 units of you gain bonus 15% Attack Speed
Health and HP5

Pure Health items have always been difficult to find a balance point for. Due to how protections and health scale, too much health can result in a tank meta while too little can result in seeing no play from these items. We are shifting our focus for this tree to be more focused around strong passive effects with health as a strong bonus stat.”

Stone of Gaia

Knockups are generally considered to be the strongest CC due to them not being affected by CCR, Diminishing Returns, and can only be cleansed pre-emptively. Due to the potent nature of knockup we felt there was room for an item that specifically combated it.”

  • NEW PASSIVE – If you are hit by a Knockup or Knockback, you are instead enveloped by the Earth, becoming CC immune for 1s. Can only occur once every 90s.
  • Additional Passive – Regenerates 2% of your max Health every 5 seconds.

Shield of Regrowth

Shield of Regrowth has a fun utility Passive, but it was previously locked to only Physical gods. Many Magical gods could use this Passive to great effect and now they will have the chance to. Although Physical gods who continue to need this item will miss the Power stats from it, the new stat spread should make up for that.”

  • Remove Physical Protections
  • Remove Physical Power
  • Adds 400 Health
  • Increased CDR from 10%20%
  • Adds 10 HP5
  • Adds 10 MP5
  • Increased Passive Movement Speed Buff from 35%40%

Gauntlet of Thebes

Although Gauntlet of Thebes seemed like it could be an extreme necessity for self healing gods, it saw little use in Season 3. It is being repurposed as a more general support item that Guardians can opt into if they want to provide even more stats to their teammates.”

  • Removed old Aura
  • NEW PASSIVE – AURA – The Magical and Physical Protections of allies within 70 units are increased by 20.

God Changes

Aphrodite

While most healers and healing items saw a reduction in strength, Aphrodite is remaining largely untouched in that department. She has overall been struggling to make an impact and we wanted to help her rather than punish her for the reduced healing overall. She is receiving some small changes that should help the better fight in the lane and allow her to scale into a larger thread in the mid and late game.”

General

Apollo

So Beautiful will now deal full Damage to the Minion Wave rather than being reduced per Minion hit. Apollo’s ability to push and clear the wave is receiving a large increase in Power for this so we needed to compensate by hitting one of his strengths. Apollo is known for his global pressure, but in the late game 90 seconds was allowing Apollo to pressure the enemy team a bit too often. Now at 110s at all ranks, Across The Sky now matches similar global effects in Cooldown.”

So Beautiful

Removed the effect that causes successive enemies take 15% reduced Damage

Across the Sky

Increased Cooldown from 110/105/100/95/90110s at all ranks


Bakasura

Bakasura can be a strong boxer and Jungler, but he often struggles to get his Damage onto his enemy in the mid and late game. Regurgitate now applies a Slow that persists on his enemies giving him better chase potential during his Ultimate on enemies he successfully “threw up” on.”

Regurgitate

Increased Slow from 15/20/25/30/35%20/25/30/35/40%

Changed Slow duration to be 4s instead of applying only in the area

Increased Cone Attack Duration from 5s6s


Chang'e

Like other healers, there is a large focus on adjusting the strength of healing and compensating them elsewhere. Moonflower Dance’s heal now has less heal scaling but more damage scaling, better rewarding Chang’e when she can be aggressive. Moonlit Waltz is now instant which cleans up some edge cases and the Jade Rabbit is much quicker at getting back to Chang’e, letting her have better access to potion and item runs especially in Conquest.”

Jade Rabbit

Chronos

Chronos is the first of 3 gods on this list receiving a significant change. Fatalis effect is a strong boxing tool that most other ranged gods need to itemize into. By getting it for free Chronos, Jing Wei, and Sol had a strong leg up on their lane opponents. We have removed Fatalis effect from Chronos and adjusted his base movement speed and lowered the cooldown on Accelerate to help him still get around and be effective.”

Accelerate

No longer provides Immunity to Basic Attack Movement Penalty

Cooldown decreased from 17s15s


Erlang Shen

Erlang Shen’s ability to chase and control his opponents has largely contributed to his strength and frustration. While he has to sacrifice a large Cooldown with his Taunt and the flexibility of his Turtle or Mink Charge, Pin crippled and came up fairly often. The Cripple has been removed to give a little more counterplay to his chase potential.”

Pin

This ability no longer Cripples


Freya

Freya has seen a rise in power, being a flexible jungler and magical hunter. We like this role, but found her level 5 power with her ultimate a bit too high for her late game scaling. Valkyrie’s Discretion is seeing an early game base damage reduction to better define her as a late game powerhouse.”

Valkyrie’s Discretion

Decreased Base Damage from 120/150/180/210/240100/135/170/205/240


Guan Yu

Guan Yu is another healer seeing a shift. His healing is being overall reduced but he is receiving a large damage increase to his ultimate to compensate. Warrior’s Will is also receiving an adjustment that is focused around removing high slows that self apply diminishing returns. We will be watching this shift closely to see where he falls once new items are in play.”

Hel

Hel has had quite a history in Smite. At times she was unbeatable, and at other times she was hardly noticed. Balancing her has always been a challenge, mostly due to her massive AoE healing. The series of changes to her in 4.1 are aimed at a few things. Her AoE healing is being reduced, and more emphasis is being place on her skills shots. Additionally, her base stats and clear abilities have been adjusted to make her a bit safer in the laning phase, giving her much needed consistency.”

Switch Stances

MP5 now applies to both stances.

Light Stance now provides additional Magical and Physical Protections of 5/10/15/20/25


Hercules

Hercules has a great two Ability combo that should be preserved, but he has been struggling quite a lot over the years. To improve his playability, we are adjusting his Passive to give him bonus Power whenever he is fighting gods, not only when he is near death. Also, Mitigate Wounds is seeing changes to heal a more clear amount, while providing Protections that encourage him to use this Ability in combat instead of between fights.”

Strength From Pain

NEW: Everytime Hercules takes Damage from Gods, he gains 5 Physical Power +1 multiplied by your level, stacking up to 3 times and lasting 5s.

Hun Batz

Hun Batz’s Overhead Smash is seeing a scaling increase to make it more worthwhile to cast late game, especially considering the long wind up. Additionally, Somersault’s Slow has been slightly decreased to make it avoid self diminishing returns.”

Overhand Smash

Increased Physical Power Scaling from 85%95%

Somersault

Decreased Slow from 50%40%


Janus

“Janus has remained largely unchanged for the last few years. He has been a popular pick to many players, but at all levels of non-competitive play he has struggled statistically, only becoming a strong pick (Strong, not constantly a first pick or first ban god) at the absolute highest level of play. We have long since been OK with this, understanding he is a challenging god with a high skill ceiling. Recently his strength at the highest level through item and meta shifts has become a bit too strong compared to his previous standing, so we are changing Through Space and Time to match our previous statement about the cooldown of Global Mobility ultimates. We expect this to bring him even lower at all other levels of play, and we will be looking at ways to bridge the large gap between these levels of play while keeping his high skill cap that people have come to love.”

Through Space and Time

Increased Cooldown from 90s → 110s.


Jing Wei

Since her inception, Jing Wei has had a very unique Passive that has given her strong lane pressure. We have adjusted multiple things in the past to make this a bit more even, but with Season 4 we are hitting her Passive duration by a second, slightly limiting how close she can get to a fight after backing. With this, we also removed Fatalis, which gave her very strong boxing potential and lowered her Base Health Scaling and Movement to make up for her clear strength of survivability. We will be watching her performance closely on the PTS.”

Khepri

Scarab’s Blessing is a fight and game changing Ultimate that comes up a bit too often during the course of the game. Its Cooldown is being increased to make these Ultimates more impactful, while giving Khepri a bit more Damage and pressure consistently with Solar Flare.”

Medusa

There is nothing more terrifying than a giant snake lady charging towards you with claws at the ready. Lacerate is a tool that Medusa players use when they feel they can use their escape aggressively, and we want to make sure the Damage for that choice is worth it. Additionally, allowing it to reduce healing more early on can add additional utility that might make her more valuable in certain matchups. Petrify is also seeing a buff, allowing her Damage to be more consistent if players do manage to look away in time.”

Ne Zha

Ne Zha has a lot of tools at his disposal, and we wanted to highlight the skillful aspects of his kit a bit more. Flaming Spear and Armillary Sash are Ne Zha’s primary tools of survival and allowing them to be up more often will help Ne Zha get into a fight. Since his survivability has gone up, we took some power away from his poke and clear with a nerf to Universe Ring Toss.”

Nike

Nike just keeps on winning. Who knew the Goddess of Victory would embrace that quality? Nike provides strong early game Damage and leads her team to victory in the late game with her Passive and engage Power. She is seeing a slight nerf to all three of these aspects to allow for the enemy team a better shot at seeing the victory screen.”

Ra

Ra is a perfect example of how we want to shift healers in Season 4. Out of combat healing was a large source of frustration, so Ra’s Base Healing has been reduced. To compensate, he now provides increased Armor in Solar Blessing, encouraging this Ability to be used strategically to mitigate Damage during combat instead of behind a wall away from the fight.”

Rolling Assault

Serqet

Serqet was a dominant force of mobility and burst, but saw quite a few nerfs before she became outclassed by other Assassins. One aspect of her kit that we wanted to make sure felt rewarding was her Passive, which can contribute a large amount of burst when used well. Players who can use this Passive well will see new kill opportunities that were previously just out of reach.”

Catalyst

Skadi

Skadi released to a large amount of success. As a low mobility Hunter, her ability to harass and create distance let her excel, but players eventually got familiar with her weak points. We like her ability to create space with strong uses of Kaldr, Permafrost, and Slows and we wanted to highlight this playstyle by giving her access to a bit more Movement Speed.”

Sun Wukong

Sun Wukong has hit the gym and is ready to show off his new Undefeated Body. Instead of providing Critical Strike chance, while at low Health, Sun Wukong receives raw Physical Power, allowing him to better fight at low Health. Additionally, Somersault Cloud has increased Base Damage, allowing players who sacrifice the healing from the ultimate to use it more aggressively.”

Susano

Susano saw a large number of nerfs after his introduction to Season 3, and since then he has fallen off in both casual and competitive play. We want to bring some of his power back without reintroducing frustration. Wind Siphon will now deal more damage in the late game, and Typhoon will now scale in damage as it charges, rather than needing to be at full charge to get any benefit. These two changes should give him a bit more pressure without increasing his main damaging abilities or mobility.”

Typhoon

Sylvanus

Sylvanus and Grover made quite a splash at HRX. We are looking to shift him similarly to other healers in Season 4. Wisps is seeing a slight decrease, while Verdant Growth will now apply its Protection Reduction on Rooted enemies, giving Sylvanus better kill potentially when he can successful land his combo.”

Terra

Terra is also being adjusted with the rest of the healers this patch. Monolith and Terra’s Blessing are seeing reductions, and Terra is gaining a stronger Force of Nature to compensate. Good Terra players should now find opportunities to be more aggressive, and potentially even land two of these strong Forces of Nature to really put pressure on their opponents.”

Thoth

Thoth is seeing a few adjustments to highlight his kits strength and move him slightly away from a late game ultimate bot. Evade and Punish now has a stun component, giving him an extra tool to survive or set up, and Glyph of Pain now provides even more to allies who shoot through it to better reward teams who use this unique ability. Final Judgement will now be on a longer cooldown and has reduced damage to accomodate the increased power in Thoth’s base kit.”
