The patch notes for the next SMITE patch were released today. With it comes the announcement of a new god; Camazotz, several new Odyssey skins, and regular balance changes to our favorite gods and items.
Camazotz, the Deadly God of Bats
Hailing from the Mayan Pantheon, Camazotz the deadly god of bats enters the battlefield of the gods. Don’t mistake him with the god of deadly bats. Camazotz’s bats are gentle and won’t harm you at all. It has been over a year since the release of the last Mayan god, Ah Puch. Let’s look at this Assassin’s kit.
Passive: Essence Drinker – Camazotz has a passive Vampirism bonus (+5% Lifesteal and Healing). Also, anytime a God dies they leave behind a pool of their essence in the spot they were slain. Camazotz may stand inside these pools to drink the essence, replenishing his health and mana (+2% Health and Mana per drink). If Camazotz is out of combat he drinks faster.
1: Screech – Camazotz screeches loudly and launches a sound wave that pierces through minions and deals (90/135/180/225/270 + 70% of your Physical Power) damage. If the screech hits an enemy god, the sound wave will echo. If Camazotz is hit by an echo, he gains vision of the God that was hit by screech for the next 15s and gains bonus Physical Power (20/25/30/35/40) for the duration. Cost : 60/65/70/75/80. Cooldown: 15s.
2: Vampire Bats – Camazotz commands a swarm of bats to fly out and attack a single target, damaging (100/180/260/340/420 + 130% of your Physical Power) and slowing them by 30% and then carrying back a heal. If the target was a jungle buff monster they will be marked and he will receive a heal as well as a stackable Vampirism buff that lasts 210s. Marked monsters will not provide Camazotz with another stack of Vampirism. Vampirism Stack : +3% Lifesteal and Healing, stacking 3 times. Cost: 60/65/70/75/80. Cooldown: 10s.
3: Devour – Camazotz Leaps forward a short distance dealing damage (80,140,200,260,320 +75% of your Physical Power) on impact and healing himself (15/25/35/45/55 + 25% of your Physical Power) per enemy hit. Cost: 60/65/70/75/80. Cooldown: 15s.
4: Bat Out of Hell – Camazotz flies into the air, becoming CC immune for the next 3s. While flying, he may swoop forward to deal (140/180/220/260/300 + 20% of your Physical Power) damage. He may do this up to 3 times, landing on the 3rd time. Hitting more than one enemy God in a single swoop will deal increased (+10%) damage per god. Cost: 100. Cooldown: 90s.
Camazotz seems like an exciting new Assassin with the ability to sustain himself very well in the jungle. With 14% free lifesteal from passives, he seems to be a very powerful boxer and duelist.
New Odyssey Skins
Scarlet Dangerfield Neith
Feline Fashion Awilix
I’m personally insta-buying the Izanami skin, but they all seem really cool.
New Mastery Skins
Also included in the patch are mastery skins for Izanami and redone mastery skins for Neith. I’m so happy Neith is no longer a golden statue, but rather a goddess in little gold clothing.
And Much Much More…
There are new achievements available for Kali, Cabrakan, Ne Zha, and Zhong Kui. There are plenty of balance changes as well. You can find the rest of the patch notes here.
