The Smite Patch notes show happened yesterday. We saw some new skins, heard about some upcoming changes, and saw our first look at the new God Cernunnos. As the second god from the Celtic pantheon, expectations are high. Let’s take a look at him now.
Passive – Heavy Glaive: Cernunnos wields a glaive as a weapon. His Basic Attacks deal additional damage to all enemies in melee range while he is throwing it.
Shifter of Seasons: Imbues his glaive with the power of the 4 seasons. Activating this ability rotates him through 4 different bonuses to his Basic Attacks. Spring Growth: Bonus Physical Lifesteal, Summer Heat: Bonus Damage, Autumn Decay: Debuff for 5s, Winter Chill: Slows for 1s
Bramble Blast: He fires a thorn forward in a line that deals damage and roots a single enemy it hits. When it hits an enemy, a wall, or reaches max range it explodes dealing damage and spawning an area of thorns at the location. This area deals damage every .5s and slows enemies inside it persisting for 5s.
Horn Charge: Charge forward, damaging and crashing through all types of enemies.
The Wild Hunt: Select an area where The Wild Hunt will begin. After a 1s casting time, enemies in the area will be damaged and polymorphed into wild boars. Polymorphed targets are Silenced and Disarmed. Polymorph is not affected by diminishing returns.
It looks like he will be a very good addition to the game as a disabler, ganker and overall team player. I can’t wait to see what is in store for him!
The patch is also going to bring a whole bunch of new skins including a new Broken Doll Izanami, the Kuzenbo mastery skins, and a new Bellona pro league skin. Go check out the patch notes and let us know what you think in the comments below.
