Smite Patch 4.2 Kuzenbo: King of the Kappa

Like clockwork the team at Hi-Rez has pulled out another patch and delivered another hero. The new hero is Kuzenbo, and of course he’s the King of the Kappa. Besides the new hero the patch also is brining some new skins, emotes, and gameplay changes. Let’s dive in!

King Kappa

Kuzenbo Abilities

Passive – Water Bowl

Each time he takes 2% of his Maximum Health worth of Damage, pre-mitigation, he is granted a Stack of 1.5% Damage Reduction as the bowl of water atop his head fills (Max 10 Stacks).  Stacks last 10s and are refreshed each time he gains another. When he is Knocked Up, Knocked Back, Grabbed, Pulled, Banished or otherwise disrupted, the bowl loses half of it’s Stacks until he begins to fill it again.

NeNe Kappa

He throws the powerful NeNe Kappa, who can ricochet off walls. After firing, if the NeNe Kappa bounces off a wall, it will travel 70 units from that point up to a maximum of 2 bounces. If an Enemy God is hit by the NeNe Kappa, it will deal burst forth from its shell and attack them. Cost: 70/75/80/85/90. Cooldown: 16s.

-Damage : 70/105/140/175/210 (+55% of your Magical Power)

Sumo Slam

Kuzenbo charges forward, immune to Slows and Roots, damaging Enemy Minions and using his immense strength to push the first Enemy God he hits along with him. Each subsequent God he hits deals damage to both that God and the God he is pushing. Colliding with a wall will also deal damage to the pushed God. Cost: 60/65/70/75/80. Cooldown: 16s.

-Damage per Hit : 65/95/125/155/185 (+35% of your Magical Power)

Watery Grave

Kuzenbo pulls himself inwards under his shell and spins, summoning fierce currents that knock Enemies back, increase his Movement Speed, and allow him to move freely in all directions. Damage after the first spin is reduced by 50%. Cost: 100. Cooldown: 100s.

-Damage from First Hit : 60/100/140/180/220 (+40% of your Magical Power)
