by Hirez Maria | Jul 10, 2013

New God: Chronos

  • PASSIVE - Wheel of Time
    • The wheel of time is always spinning and for Chronos, it is no different. Depending on where the wheel is when activating Accelerate, it provides a different benefit to Chronos.
      • Section I = +20% Magical Lifesteal
      • Section II = 75% Mana Refund On Abilities
      • Section III = +20% Magical Power
      • Section IV = +35% Magical Power Contribution to Basic Attacks
  • Time Rift
    • Chronos creates a rift in time, dealing 80/125/170/215/260 (+85% of your magical power) magical damage to all enemies in the area.  Cost - 50/55/60/65/70 mana.  Cooldown - 5s.
  • Accelerate
    • Chronos accelerates himself over time, allowing him to progressively move 10/15/20/25/30% faster for 8 seconds. While active, his attack speed is increased by 20/25/30/35/40% and he is not affected by the attacking movement speed debuff. This ability also stops the Wheel of Time.  Cost - 70/75/80/85/90 mana.  Cooldown - 15s.
  • Stop Time
    • Shooting forward spinning gears of time, any enemies hit by Chronos' attack are slowed to a stop, taking 30/50/70/90/110 (+40% of your magical power) magical damage on the initial hit and again when they are stunned for 1s.  Cost - 65/70/75/80/85 mana.  Cooldown - 16/15/14/13/12s.
  • Rewind
    • Chronos travels through time to where he was 8 seconds ago, gaining health and mana back to the values of that time. All of his cooldowns are instantly reset as well.  Cost - 100 mana.  Cooldown - 120/110/100/90/80s.

New Skins:

  • Young Zeus
  • Golden He Bo
  • Legendary Skins have been added to the game.  Every gold skin purchase will award a Legendary Skin that is automatically given to the player for that god when they achieve Mastery Rank 10. NOTE: If your god is already rank 10 prior to the patch then you must play one match that gives rewards to unlock the new skin.

General:

  • Jungle Buffs:
    • The buff holding leaders in the jungle camps now drop their buffs when they are killed. The buff remains on the ground for 30 seconds.

    • Each player can only have 1 jungle buff at a time.  Players that already have a jungle buff will not pick up another buff when they walk over it.
  • Newly created Smite accounts will now be given Poseidon, Neith, Ymir, Ra and Thor as their permanently free gods. If you created a Smite account prior to the patch date, you will still own the previously provided permanently free gods (but will need to purchase any other unowned gods).
  • The new free god rotation is Aphrodite, Apollo, Ares, Fenrir, Isis.
  • Fixed a bug in which the Recorded tab on the TV menu was not displaying some information correctly.

  • Gods with magical damage basic attacks now gain 100% of their magical lifesteal when hitting an enemy with their basic attacks.  This currently affects Zeus, Isis, Anubis, Athena and Chronos.
