Baba Yaga is one of the playable Gods in SMITE.

Lore[edit | edit source]

It is an old story. Perhaps the oldest story there is. In the dark woods, there is a witch called Baba Yaga. Sometimes she is a mother. Sometimes she is a daughter. Sometimes she is cruel and sometimes, kind. But always, Baba Yaga is cunning. And there is always a price to pay for dealing with her, if you are brave enough – or desperate enough – to seek her out.

It is said that Baba Yaga waits for travellers in her house atop its gnarled chicken legs, behind a fence made of human bones. If you are brave enough to pass through the fence and enter the house you will see her stretched out across the interior, looming over her stove, or reaching out from one corner to another. Or, if you are in the woods late at night, you might see her flying overhead in her mortar and pestle and the hear the thunderous tramp of the chicken-legged house as it pursues its mistress.

Regardless, she is an ugly creature with a long nose and cruel, iron teeth, and her eyes gleam with malice. But despite her inherent malevolence, she does not interfere with others without first being approached – or provoked. If you are foolish enough to seek her, she might well punish you for your effrontery before aiding you, or aid you and then tear you to pieces because it amuses her to do so. And sometimes, very rarely, she helps without harm.

But only when it suits her to do so.

Now, as the world shudders on its axis and new horrors rise, Baba Yaga stirs in her long isolation. The gods have ignored her warnings for long enough, and if they will not ask for her help willingly, she will find a way to force them to do so...

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Passive - Creeping Cabin
Baba Yaga's Cabin accumulates up to 100 essence over time, when it moves, and if enemy gods get too close. Baba Yaga can approach the Cabin and use this essence to gain evolving item stacks. Items with a low stack count take more energy. If Baba Yaga has no stacking item this essence heals Baba Yaga for 0.8% max health per tick. Notes:
 Bullet.png The cabin has unit collision but projectiles can pass through it.
 Bullet.png The cabin will prioritize healing Baba Yaga if it does not have enough essence to stack a low stack count item.
 Bullet.png Item Stack Cost: 400 / Item Max Stacks  Bullet.png Heal Cost: 4
 Bullet.png Ability Type: Passive

Ultimate - Home Sweet Home
Baba Yaga calls down her Cabin, causing it to crash onto her and launch nearby enemies away. Baba Yaga commands the cabin for up to 8s, using it as a protective shield to create and throw 4 Witchfire Bolts from the inside. When the thrown Witchfire lands, it explodes dealing damage to enemies in the area while leaving behind a creeping patch of fire that chases nearby enemies. Enemies caught in the creeping fire take burn damage every 0.4s. Notes:
 Bullet.png Has a minimum firing range of 4.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

General[edit | edit source]

  • Baba Yaga's release was teased by an easter egg where her laugh could be heard whenever a player consumed a potion.
  • Baba Yaga's chaotic spells and their side effects may be a reference to her behaviour in slavic folklore, how she helped the good (Her team) and punished the bad (The enemy team).
  • The way Baba Yaga is positioned in her Mortar on her Victory screen is a reference to the famous bathtube scene in the witcher.
  • According to HiRez in her first look page, Baba Yaga was one of the most requested characters in the community.
