Smite adds new Skins, Tiamat abilities, Manikin Scepter nerfs, god balances – Patch notes Update 8.2

Tiamat will be making her debut to Smite in Update 8.2. The update will be launching on February 23, and players will be able to have a chance to check her out and how she works. She’s going to be a mage, and she’s going to be a goddess that has additional stance changes added to her abilities. The stance changes will give players access to new attacks, changing their strategy with how she works. Players who have the Season Pass purchased for Season 8 gain access to all of her skins and voice pack when she goes live.

Alongside Tiamat’s reveal, players can expect to see additional changes to several starter items, namely Manikin Scepter. It’s a starter item plenty of players could abuse its strength with gods that excelled with using basic attacks, namely Arachne, Kali, and Erlang Shen.

You can read all of the new changes and check out the new skins in the patch notes posted below.

Tiamat abilities

CONSUME

  • Tiamat fires a cone dealing damage and slowing enemies hit. Minions, Large Monsters or Buff Holders hit under a health threshold are executed. Tiamat can immediately consume her Serpent and Beast pets to provide a Hardened Scale. When Tiamat consumes a Buff Holder she gains their buff while the original can still be picked up by allies. This allows Tiamat to pick up a second buff as well. Tiamat can only have one consumed and one regular buff at a time.

BALANCE LIVE WITH THE GODDESS OF THE SALT SEA UPDATE FEBRUARY 23

Game Modes
  • Conquest
    • Updated Guide Start Route
    • Invader’s Curse
      • Adjusted the area around camps to reduce the effect bleeding through walls
      • Invaders Curse now covers the area around Back Harpies
      • Decreased time active from 1:00m to 00:35s
    • Lesser Scorpion (Lane)
      • No longer activates an aura of healing while in its downed state
      • Now activates an aura of healing around its leash radius for the team that slays it. This aura lasts 10 seconds and provides a healing buff:
        • This aura area lasts 10 seconds and provides a healing buff:
        • +10 Health per second
        • Lasts 3 seconds
        • 130 HP Max (10 ticks refreshing + 3 more after the fact)
        • Refreshes while inside the leash radius aura
      • Base Stats
        • Physical Protection reduced from 6 to 2
        •  Magical Protection increased from 2 to 6
        • Physical Power increased from 28 to 34
        • XP Reward Reduced from 41 to 21
      • Scaling Stats
        • Decreased Max Health from +180 to +120
    • Enhanced Speed Buff
      • No longer provides Crowd Control Reduction.
      • Now provides an additional flat 5% movement speed.
  • Conquest Environment
    •  Added the Spectator version of the map
      • This has reduced trees and less tall landmarks for better camera visibility
    • Gameplay version of the map
      • The main wall behind Fire Giant has been decreased in size so that the Fire Giant’s scale feels more normal and so gods flying over it wont clip inside the rock. The size of the blocking volume of this area has not changed
      • Lowered the height of jungle trees and other objects that flying gods could clip into. We currently are planning on keeping the jungle tree density as is, though.
      • Adjusted the Order Base Arches to not block god vision while using aerial ultimates like Thor, Rama.
      • Additional set dressing, plants, props, and decorative items have been added

Items

  • Gilded Arrow
    • This item should no longer mark jungle bosses
  • Manikin Scepter

And here is the second Manikin Scepter nerf! For more information we suggest reading the dev notes in the Bonus Balance section. For this adjustment we saw one other area of high frustration. The Attack Speed slow on this item, especially early, can limit gods ability to box and even clear in some cases. This should feel like a solid perk but currently when this became fully stacked it was nearly impossible to punch back. A reduction here should make this item more engaging to play against.”

  • Fixed an issue where Manikin Scepter was dealing Magical Damage rather than Physical Damage.
  • Decreased the Attack Speed Slow from 7% per stack to 3.5% per stack.

Gods

DANZABUROU

Danzaburou responded well to our last round of nerfs, going from a top performer to closer to the middle of the pack. We however think he still has some room to climb as players learn the new Season and wanted to do a small adjustment to the scaling potential of Uproarious Rocket.

UPROARIOUS ROCKET

Decreased Physical Power Scaling from 110% to 100%.

KING ARTHUR

GENERAL

  • Fixed an issue where King Arthur could proc item effects with his basic attacks. Arthur should not be able to proc any item effects through basic attacks

BABA YAGA

Baba found a brewing catalyst shoved away in the back of her Cabin! She can now brew at speeds never before seen! We have heard feedback on her Brew feeling particularly clunky to use. Initially we felt this delay was important for player reaction time but given the strength of these potions and the strong sound and visual cues that exist for it, this delay mostly got in the way. This should smooth out Baba Yaga’s moment to moment gameplay.

BABA’S BREW

  • Decreased Potion Brew Prefire time from 0.4s to 0.2s.
  • Decreased Potion Brew Postfire time from 0.2s to 0.1s.
  • Decreased Potion Swap Prefire time from 0.3s to 0.1s.
  • Decreased Potion Swap Postfire time from 0.3s to 0.1s.
    • The travel speed and warning time of the lobbed potion is unchanged.

JORMUNGANDR

Jormungandr cannot be stopped! Except by Flat Damage Reduction. This stat while feeling fair in most contexts feel arbitrarily punishing on Jormungandr. Rather than buffing and nerfing Jorm around these items prevalence in the Meta, we felt it made sense that his unique basics should ignore this stat, normalizing his strength when fighting different items and builds. In addition we have seen him struggling as a whole and wanted to revert the damage taken debuff that we did some time ago. This should help him stay in the fray, especially when playing a true tank build.

BASIC ATTACKS

Jormungandr’s basic attacks can no longer be reduced by items that have flat damage reduction

IMMOVABLE

Decreased damage taken debuff from 15% to 10%

CERNUNNOS

With a new SEASON it is time for Cernunnos to SHIFT into the Meta! Ha! Shifter of Season’s is a one of a kind ability that felt largely underwhelming to put a point into. The level 1 effects didn’t bring much impact, making some Cernunnos players skip it for some time. By increasing the Scaling on Summer Heat and the Protection reduction from Autumn Decay, skilled Cernunnos players will be able to feel the impact of utilizing this ability well sooner into the game.

SHIFTER OF SEASONS

  • Summer Heat:
    • Increased Scaling 5% to 10%
  • Autumn Decay:
    • Increased Protection Debuff from 5/10/15/20/25 Reduced Protections to 10/14/18/22/26
    • Increased Duration From 5s to 7s

ODIN

RING OF SPEARS

  • Changed duration from 4/4.5/5/5.5/6s to 5s at all ranks
  • Enemies inside the ring now have their power reduced by 15%.

ISIS

Isis similarly gained a strong amount of utility, but after the nerfs it ended up feeling a bit lackluster. Rather than continuing to bring up her damage we wanted to bring some strength back to Dispel Magic. Isis will now have more control in the late game, with a stronger slow and shield to stay in the fight.

DISPEL MAGIC

  • Increased slow from 20% at all ranks to 20/22.5/25/27.5/30%
  • Increased shield health from 50/95/140/185/230 to 50/105/160/215/270
