Items – Balances

As we continue on the path towards the Smite World Championship we are focused on small adjustments that bring as many possible strategies, items, and gods into the forefront; without disrupting strategies teams are currently employing.

At this time of the year we also are looking towards gods that have been on a downward decline in the last half of this year that can be buffed in a safe way for all players without disrupting the absolute top end of play. We will keep a close eye moving forward to any issues presented, but 4.24 (the patch SWC will be played on) will only include changes that absolutely need to be made before we close out for the year. 4.25 will be the last patch of the year and will then move into Season 5 early next year.

JadeEmperorsCrown T3.png Jade Emperor's Crown

Jade Emperor's Crown provides a huge spike in defense from Physical Damage dealers early, especially those that rely on scaling values. With it being both good against those building power and those with high base values, we wanted to better define the item's purpose. We are reducing the self protections this item provides, putting the emphasis on the aura effect it brings to the team.

  • Reduced Physical Protection from 60 to 50.

GladiatorsShield T2.png Gladiator's Shield

Gladiator's Shield has been a staple for Warriors this season, and after multiple balance adjustments it has been brought much closer in its power level to other items. In this patch we want to bring it down only slightly to ensure diversity in Warrior builds.

  • Reduced Physical Protection from 35 to 30.

The Executioner.png The Executioner

Similar to Gladiator's Shield for Warriors, The Executioner has been a core item in most Hunter builds, whether they are working towards Power, Critical Damage, or On-hit effects. We are reducing the Physical Power it provides to nudge it more in line with other options for Hunters.

  • Reduced Physical Power from 35 to 30.

DevourersGauntlet T3.png Devourer's Gauntlet

Devourer's Gauntlets is a powerful item that provides some of the highest cost to stat ratios out there once fully stacked. Historically this item has been on a razor's edge for balance with tweaks quickly pushing it in and out of the core builds of Hunters. Rather than adjust multiple aspects of this item, we are just increasing the cost slightly and pushing back how quickly hunters will be able to begin powering up this item.

  • Increased Cost from 2000 to 2100.

HydrasLament T3.png Hydra's Lament

Assassins that are more damage oriented have been pushed out in favor of tankier options. While nerfs to items like Titan's Bane helped bring Warrior and Hunter damage into a more fair spot, they did affect Assassins as a side result. Nerfs to items like Gladiator's Shield and Jade Emperor's Crown will also help in this regard, but we want to bring up the overall power of being aggressive with Assassins.

Hydra's Lament is a strong boost to Assassins who can weave basic attacks in between their abilities. Assassins who benefit from this item will get an extra punch that will help them burst down squishy Mages and Hunters more effectively.

  • Increased Bonus Basic Attack Damage from 30% to 40%.

JotunnsWrath T3.png Jotunn's Wrath

Jotunn's Wrath is getting a cost reduction which will help ability based Assassins to become more threatening quicker. While Warriors can make use of this level of Cooldown Reduction the need to sacrifice a tankier item to fit this in will push them in a more offensive or defensive choice; which is a serious tradeoff and creates healthy choices for that class.

  • Reduced Cost from 2450 to 2350.

Gods – Balances

T Awilix Default Icon.png Awilix

Awilix is receiving slight tweaks to the ranges of both Moonlight Charge and Gravity Surge. While listed as a 65 range ability, Moonlight Charge was actually reaching distances of 73. This allowed it to damage and knockup players well outside of its targeter and outside of the range of Gravity Surge. While fixing this we could pull Moonlight Charge back to a range of 65, but this would be a large nerf to a character in a mostly solid spot. Moonlight Charge is instead being reduced from 73 units to 70 units and getting a targeter that properly matches. Gravity Surge is getting a slight increase to allow it to connect with any player that gets knocked up by Moonlight Charge, as well as offsetting the small nerf of reducing the range of Moonlight Charge.

  • Icons Awilix A03.png Moonlight Charge
  • Fixed an issue where this ability went further than the targeter suggested (~73 range rather than the intended 65 range).
  • Increased range of this ability from 65 to 70.
  • Icons Awilix A04.png Gravity Surge
  • Increased range of this ability from 70 to 75.

T Camazotz Default Icon.png Camazotz

Camazotz has been struggling ever since we adjusted the damage of Vampire Bats and the power bonus from Screech. At the time his dominance warranted the nerfs, but through the recent patches it seems like they were a bit too potent. We are reverting the change made to Screech, allowing Camazotz players to benefit from a more powerful echo buff on all of his abilities.

  • Icons Camazotz A01.png Screech
  • Increased Physical Power buff from catching the Echo from 10/15/20/25/30 to 20/25/30/35/40.

T Discordia Default Icon.png Discordia

Discordia has been causing chaos and strife on the Battleground, much to the distaste of the other gods. After watching her initial release, her overall damage and performance is slightly above what we would expect for a character like Discordia. We are reducing the scaling on Strife to lower her late-game burst potential.

  • Icons Discordia A02.png Strife
  • Reduced Magical Power scaling from 70% to 60%.

T Fafnir Default Icon.png Fafnir

Fafnir has a large impact at the highest levels of play, but often struggles to make an impact at other levels of play. High level players are able to use Coerce for game changing plays. Buffing the correct targets at the correct time enables teams to push down objectives at a very quick rate. By increasing the cooldown and reducing the Attack Speed buff teams will have more opportunity to invade a team that is benefiting from Coerce by providing more windows when it is down.

  • Icons Fafnir A02.pngIcons Fafnir A02 B.png Coerce
  • Increased Cooldown from 15s to 16s.
  • Changed Attack Speed buff from 10/20/30/40/50% to 15/20/25/30/35%.

T Kukulkan Default Icon.png Kukulkan

Everyone's favorite noodle is in a pretty rough spot statistically. His abilities have great potential for farm and damage, and he is always useful to a team with his objective secure, so we looked to give him a slight buff that is more directed around feel. Kukulkan's size and flying style of walking makes him feel like he is moving painfully slow, so we are increasing his base movement speed to help him rotate through the conquest map and make him all-around feel better to play.

  • General
  • Increased Base Movement Speed from 350 to 355.

T Medusa Default Icon.png Medusa

Medusa has been on the lower end of hunters, having a hard time exerting pressure when it comes to boxing. We are increasing the base damage of Viper Shot to better allow her to box and reward players who can consistently land their Viper Shots.

  • Icons Medusa A01.png Viper Shot
  • Increased Base Damage from 10/15/20/25/30 to 15/20/25/30/35.

T Ra Default Icon.png Ra

Ra's performance stats have been continually declining through the second half of Season 4. The god definitely brings unique tools to the table in his abilities to heal his entire team and snipe enemy players from long range. However, his damage output is an at all time low so we are increasing his lowest damaging ability. This ability creates a good amount of risk if Ra wants to use it aggressively, and will give Ra players more flexibility in their play style and give them higher damage potential.

  • Icons Ra DivineLight.png Divine Light
  • Increased Base Damage from 60/100/140/180/220 to 70/120/170/220/270.
  • Increased Magical Power from 40% to 55%.
  • Reduced Mana Cost from 60/70/80/90/100 to 60/65/70/75/80.

T Susano Default Icon.png Susano

Susano has undergone many changes to his damage potential and mobility. After the last round of adjustments his frustration has gone way down, but so has his overall performance. We are bringing back some of his damage with an increase to Wind Siphon base damage.

  • Icons Susano A02.png Wind Siphon
  • Increased Base Damage from 60/75/90/105/120 to 80/105/130/155/180.
