Martichoras is one of the playable Gods in SMITE.

Lore[ | ]

The origin of the manticores is a mystery, even to the gods. Some say they are the children of Tiamat, with the first of their number born out of her cosmic waters and left to prowl the wild places where few dare tread. Others claim they were created to guard ancient treasures. But regardless of their origin, they are wild, powerful and daring man-eaters – voracious in their appetites and fierce in battle.

And fiercest among them is their self-proclaimed king, Martichoras. Martichoras, first of the man-eaters; strongest and oldest of his kind. He was the first manticore to stalk the world, after emerging from the waters of Tiamat. Eldest and wildest of her progeny, he carved the savage path that all other manticores follow.

His name was first recorded in the annals of the Greeks by the historian Ctesias, though it is believed he was known to the Persians as well. King Martichoras has roamed many lands, and laid waste to many peoples in his quest to make himself ruler of his kind; his depredations are legend, even among the gods themselves.

He has earned the respect of his fellow manticores through sheer strength and power – those being the only virtues manticores insist on. It is even claimed by some among them that Martichoras has battled the gods...and emerged victorious.

Whatever the truth to these claims, Martichoras’ power is undeniable. He dominates all who cross his path; and those he doesn’t dominate, he devours. He has prowled the jungles of the south for centuries, eating anyone unlucky enough to cross his path. Those who’ve managed to escape his jaws speak of his speed and cunning; and of the relentlessness of his pursuit.

But despite his power, Martichoras has been, of late, content to remain in his jungle – until now. Some say he has emerged seeking revenge against the gods for their slaughter of his followers. Others believe he has merely grown tired of hunting humans and desires new sport – namely the gods. Still others insist that Martichoras has decided that the time has come to once more extend the limits of his dominion.

Whatever the reason, Martichoras is now on the hunt – and whoever he has set his sights on had best beware...

2nd Ability - Poisoned Barb
Martichoras shoots a stinger, dealing damage, piercing minions, and stopping on the first enemy god hit. The stinger then persists for 3s attached to the enemy god, reducing their healing, or at a point on the ground. Martichoras can explode it by hitting it with a basic attack or ability. The explosion deals damage, reduces healing, and Roots the god who held the stinger. Notes:

3rd Ability - Stalk Prey
Martichoras creates a patch of stealth grass in which he and all allied gods may hide. While inside and on exiting the patch, Martichoras gains Movement Speed. Martichoras’ Basic Attacks from stealth apply 8 stacks of Venom. Enemies may reveal anyone hidden in the patch by entering it or by placing a ward inside its range. Notes:
 Bullet Buffs from multiple patches do not stack and re-entering a stealth patch refreshes the buff duration.

 Bullet Attacking also breaks the stealth effect for 1s.
 Bullet Patch Duration: 120s  Bullet Max Patches: 3
