Hun Batz emerges as the new Monkey King.

by Hirez Maria | Jun 20, 2013

KNOWN ISSUE: The mini-map will be misplaced until you either change resolution once, or you change one of the UI settings (such as the mini-map scaling). 


Revamped God: Hun Batz  (formerly Sun Wukong)

Sun Wukong has been removed from the game and a new Mayan Monkey God, Hun Batz, has taken his place on the battlefield.  The new Monkey has similar abilities, but there are some important differences. Those players that owned Sun Wukong or any Sun Wukong skin will now own Hun Batz and/or the skin equivalent.

  • Infused Strikes (Passive): Using an ability gives Hun Batz’s next basic attack within the next 5 seconds additional physical damage. The effect can only apply once every 2 seconds.  Damage: 25 (+20% of your physical power).

  • Somersault: Hun Batz flips through the air, crashing down at his target location, doing damage to all nearby enemies and slowing them. Damage: 50/90/130/170/210 (+70% of your physical power). Slow: 50%. Slow Duration: 2s. Cost: 60. Cooldown: 15/14/13/12/11s.

  • Overhand Smash: Hun Batz smashes his staff to the ground in front of him, doing damage to all enemies. Damage: 85/150/215/280/345 (+100% of your physical power). Cost: 60/65/70/75/80. Cooldown: 12/11/10/9/8s.

  • Sacred Monkey: Hun Batz commands a monkey through the air that pounces on enemy targets, doing damage on each pounce, hitting each god only once. If the last target is an enemy god, Hun Batz teleports to that target. Damage per hit: 80/125/170/215/260 (+70% of your physical power). Max Targets: 4. Cost: 75/80/85/90/95. Cooldown: 13s.

  • Fear No Evil: Hun Batz summons a totem from the ground to ward off all evil. Any enemy caught within the radius is feared directly away from the totem and takes damage every .25s. Damage per Tick: 40/45/50/55/60 (+15% of your physical power). Lifetime: 1/1.25/1.5/1.75/2s. Cost: 100. Cooldown: 90s.

Updated Map:

  • The Joust map has undergone significant art revisions. The art style and quality shown in this map reflects the current art style direction of the game. Other elements of the game, including the other maps are expected to undergo changes over future patches to better align them with this style.

New Skins:

  • Apollo Golden

  • Hun Batz Red Demon (NOTE: Anyone that owned the Sun Wukong Red Demon skin will receive this skin for free).

New Voice Packs:

  • Hun Batz

  • Anhur

  • Bacchus

General:

  • The free gods permanently given to new players have changed.

    • For players that create new accounts after the patch, their permanent free gods will be Kali, Ra, Artemis, Ymir and Odin.  

    • For players that created accounts before the patch, they will still own (for free) Kali, Ra, Artemis, Ymir and Hun Batz.  They will still have to unlock Odin and will not receive him for free.

  • The in-game HUD has undergone visual and layout adjustments. Significant further changes to the in-match UI are planned for future releases.

  • All consumables now “stack time” when consumed.  Additional time is added to the end of the duration of the consumable when you consume a new one while the first one was still active.  This excludes wards.

  • You may now search for a player’s stats by name on the STATS | PROFILE page.

  • Athena and Neith have a new targeter for their Ultimates. This treatment should make it easier to identify your target.

  • Fixed issues with team coloring of several FX.

  • Fixed an issue in which gold frames would randomly appear on other players.

  • Fixed an issue in which the most recently released god would never be picked in Random gamemodes (such as Assault).

  • The gold rewards from the monsters in the jungle has been increased by 30%.

  • Players no longer get a last hit bonus from monsters in the jungle.

  • Fixed an issue where minions would not sink into the ground after dying in training mode.

  • Fixed an issue where death animations on a victim would be canceled if the victim was stunned while dead.

  • Diminishing returns will not take any crowd control durations below .5s or the effects initial duration, whichever is lower.

  • The new god rotation is Hades, Loki, Ne Zha, Neith and Zeus.

  • The cell shading effect around players has been removed (along with the Setting to turn this shading on/off).

Spectator Changes

  • Fixed an issue where the camera motion of the 3rd person view wasn’t smoothing.

  • A beta version of Director Mode is released. To toggle Director Mode, click the movie clapper icon (just to the left of the replay clock).

    • Director Mode will automatically attempt to find the most interesting players to spectate.

    • At any point you may interact with the game, which automatically puts Director Mode into stasis. If no additional input is given by the user after several seconds of being in stasis, the director will automatically reassume control over spectating the match.

    • While in Director Mode, the camera view will periodically change between third-person and isometric view modes
