T BakeKujira Default Icon New Japanese God: Bake Kujira: Yokai of Despair

BakeKujira Promo

Icons BakeKujira Passive Curse of the Ghost Whale

Enemies that apply hard Crowd Control to Bake Kujira are Cursed. If an enemy is already Cursed, the duration is refreshed and the Curse increases in strength. Bake Kujira converts Protections from Items and Abilities into Basic Attack damage and converts Attack Speed into reduced Basic Attack movement penalty. Attack Speed and Item Passives do not benefit his Basic Attacks.
  • Protections Conversion: 30%
  • Attack Speed Conversion: 1% reduced Movement Penalty per 1% Attack Speed
  • Cooldown on Curse Application: 10s

Icons BakeKujira A01 Rough Waters

Bake Kujira imbues himself with cursed energy. When activated, Bake Kujira gains increased Basic Attack range and reduced Movement Penalty when Basic Attacking. He also gains a stack of Protections for each enemy hit with his Basic Attacks.
  • Basic Attack Radius: 20
  • Protections per stack: 2/3/4/5/6
  • Max Stacks: 6/7/8/9/10
  • Movement Penalty Reduction: 50%
  • Duration: 5s
  • Cost: 60/65/70/75/80
  • Cooldown: 12s

Icons BakeKujira A02 Sonic Wave

Bake Kujira sends out a wave of cursed energy. Enemies hit are slowed, damaged, and Cursed. Enemies that are Cursed deal reduced damage for 6s. If a Cursed enemy is hit by this ability, the slow is doubled and their Curse becomes amplified. Bake Kujira’s Basic Attacks reduce this ability’s Cooldown by 1s when hitting an enemy god and 0.1s when hitting an enemy minion.
  • Damage: 80/125/170/215/260 (+30% of your Magical Power)
  • Curse Damage Reduction: 6/7/8/9/10%
  • Amplified Curse Damage Reduction: 12/14/16/18/20%
  • Slow: 15% for 2s
  • Cost: 40/45/50/55/60
  • Cooldown: 10s

Icons BakeKujira A03 Twisting Dive

Bake Kujira gathers power then dashes straight ahead, damaging enemies around him. Enemies hit by the dash take additional damage and are stunned and pushed to Bake Kujira’s ending location. Bake Kujira is immune to Knockback while using this ability.
  • Splash Damage: 55/85/115/145/175 (+20% of your Magical Power)
  • Dash Damage: 80/120/160/200/240 (+30% of your Magical Power)
  • Stun: 0.5/0.75/1.0/1.25/1.5s
  • Cost: 50/55/60/65/70
  • Cooldown: 14s

Icons BakeKujira A04 Yokai's Lament

Bake Kujira begins to sing for the next 5s, gaining bonus Basic Attack Damage, increasing his Basic Attack range to 20, and distorting a large area around himself with the sound waves. Enemies between 20 and 50 units away gain stacks of time dilation every 0.25s, causing all of their actions to happen more slowly. Leaving the time dilation area will cause the stacks of time dilation to decay over time. Enemies within 20 units are not time dilated, but instead take increased damage.
  • Time Dilation debuff: 10% slower per stack
  • Max Stacks: 4
  • Bonus Basic Attack Damage: 20/30/40/50/60%
  • Nearby Enemy Damage Increase: 5/7.5/10/12.5/15%
  • Cost: 100
  • Cooldown: 110/105/100/95/90s

Bug Fixes


  • Fixed a rare issue where players could get stuck on a blank purchase window when attempting to spend Gems or Favor out of game.


  • Fixed an issue where the Spirit of the Nine Winds sound FX would not play at the correct location when using his Shadow Serpent skin.
  • Fixed a bad interaction between Maui’s Mystical Ulua and Tsukuyomi’s Piercing Moonlight. It will no longer be possible to be transported by Maui’s bubble during Tsukuyomi ultimate.


  • Fixed several issues that could sometimes lead towards instance crashes.
  • Increased the maximum Negative Cooldown Reduction Cap to 40%, allowing effects such as those from Abyssal Stone and Osiris’ Lord of the Afterlife to now stack additively as intended instead of being limited.


Game Modes


Duel has been dominated by the same top gods for the majority of its existence. It’s time to spice things up because 32 of the most played and victorious Gods are now auto-banned from the mode. Players will still be able to ban 12 Gods as per usual, so we’re excited to see what kind of new meta forms now that the top dogs are out of the picture. This change is intentionally designed to be extreme because it will be temporary, as we are hoping Duelists across the battleground are interested in more curated meta shifts in the coming patches. We also are keeping a close eye on the various new mechanics we’ve introduced throughout the year for future adjustments. We’re looking forward to your feedback!

Item Balance


Typically we don’t want to drastically change the meta in the last major update before the SMITE World Championship. But with the current community and pro sentiment about Mages dominating the Solo lane, we decided to shake things up more in this update than we have historically. We have heard the feedback of adjusting class bonuses, but felt that was too risky to do with so little time for pros to prepare for the World Championships. Because this update is more meta shaking than we typically want to do at this time of year, some roles aren’t getting significant item changes in this update. We hope that the meta will at least slightly shift with these numerous changes, which should theoretically cause some potential shifts in the meta builds for roles like Hunters.

We have heard the feedback on Hybrid itemization changes and lack of good clear items for Warriors being contributing factors to Mages taking over their intended role. These are things we are looking to address in Year 11, but could not safely do right before the World Championship. We are giving some of the early Warrior items some small buffs, as we also don’t want to create a Warrior/Tank jungle meta, as well as giving some HP5 to some items that could become good options for them.

God Balance


T AhPuch Default Icon Ah Puch

Ah Puch has been one of the best performing Mages in Solo, mostly due to his ability to stay healthy thanks to Hollow Ground and have constant access to poke thanks to the Cooldown Reduction he gets when picking up a corpse.

  • Icons AhPuch PassiveHollow Ground
  • Decreased Heal from 5% of Max Health to 4%
  • Decreased the Cooldown Reduction on Undead Surge and Corpse Explosion when picking up a corpse from 2s to 1s

T Athena Default Icon Athena

  • General
  • Decreased HP5 per level from 0.9 to 0.8
  • Icons Athena A02Confound
  • Increased Cooldown from 18/17.5/17/16.5/16s to 18s
  • Icons Athena A04Defender of Olympus
  • Increased Cooldown from 110s to 120s
  • Damage Mitigation decreased from 30% to 20%

T Chernobog Default Icon Chernobog

We heavily nerfed Chernobog’s early lane clear in 10.12, but his pro presence remained. Since heavily nerfing the early game didn’t affect him, we are taking a different approach this time around.

  • Icons Chernobog A04Living Nightmare
  • Increased Cooldown from 110s to 120s
  • Reduced Movement Speed from 20% to 15%
  • Decreased Damage Mitigation from 10/12.5/15/17.5/20% to 5/7.5/10/12.5/15%

T MamanBrigitte Default Icon Maman Brigitte

Maman Brigitte certainly made a splash in her SPL debut. Madame’s Mark is meant to be an enabler for Soul Spikes, not a primary damage source itself. This nerf affects Madame’s Mark regardless of it being applied by Madame Fangs or Explosion of Souls.

  • Icons MamanBrigitte A02Madame Fangs
  • Decreased bonus mark damage scaling from 5% to 2.5%
  • Removed base damage from mark damage

T Poseidon Default Icon Poseidon

Poseidon quickly swam to the top of the Mages dominating Solo, but he has been quietly very good for the majority of Year 10. A large part of his strength at a high level is how hard he is to lock down thanks to Trident and his objective damage, so we are nerfing both of those aspects of his kit.

  • Icons Poseidon PassiveChanging Tides
  • Decreased Bonus Ability Damage at Max Tide from 20% to 15%
  • Icons Poseidon A02Trident
  • Increased Cooldown from 16/15/14/13/12s to 15s at all ranks
  • Decreased Base Damage from 30/40/50/60/70 to 20/30/40/50/60

T Raijin Default Icon Raijin

Raijin is the poster-god of the Mage Solo meta, so we wanted to make sure he didn’t go untouched.

  • Icons Raijin A01Percussive Storm
  • Decreased Base Damage from 35/50/65/80/95 to 30/45/60/75/90

T Ratatoskr Default Icon Ratatoskr

After climbing his way to the top of the jungle meta, we have to ask Ratatoskr to hop down a few branches.

  • Icons Ratatoskr A03Acorn Blast
  • Decreased Damage from 70/95/120/145/170 (+60% of your Physical Power) to 70/90/110/130/150 (+55% of your Physical Power)


Warriors are the class receiving the most buffs this update, for obvious reasons. We particularly focused on giving some of them increased presence in the lane, mostly through better or more consistent sustain to help withstand Mage poke.

T Achilles Default Icon Achilles

  • Icons Achilles A02Radiant Glory
  • Changed max targets on heal from 3/3/3/3/4 to 4 at all ranks
  • Icons Achilles A03Combat Dodge
  • Decreased Cooldown from 14/13/12/11/10s to 12/11.5/11/10.5/10s

T Bellona Default Icon Bellona

  • Icons Bellona A03Scourge
  • Increased Heal on third hit of the Scourge basic attack from 16/20/24/28/32 to 20/24/28/32/36
  • Icons Bellona A04Eagle's Rally
  • Increased damage from 140/230/320/410/500 to 150/250/350/450/550

T Tyr Default Icon Tyr

Tyr is a Warrior that doesn’t need a lot of help to improve his laning phase, as he is already quite strong there.

  • Icons Tyr A01Icons Tyr A01 Stance2Fearless
  • Increased Physical Power Scaling on Assault Stance from 50% to 55%
  • Decreased Cooldown on both stances from 15s to 15/14.5/14/13.5/13s

T Mulan Default Icon Mulan

Mulan’s identity is that of a lane bully, but she actually doesn’t get to bully much until she has gotten the extra ranks on Cross Strike and Spear Thrust. We think she’s likely able to compete if she has access to those earlier.

  • Icons Mulan PassiveTraining Arc
  • Decreased requirement for second rank of Sword and Spear from 2000 to 1500 damage
  • Decreased requirement for third rank of Sword and Spear from 5000 to 4500 damage

T Gilgamesh Default Icon Gilgamesh

We always have to be careful not to send Gilgamesh to the top of the Jungle meta in pro play, so we are only giving him extra damage to Lane Minions. His lack of sustain is a major reason why he has struggled to be a Solo lane force, and only having the HP5 while your Sun-Forged Scimitar buff was active proved to not be enough to let him lane effectively. We are changing that HP5 to be constant, with the value based on the rank of Sun-Forged Scimitar. The value is being reduced from its previous numbers, but having it all the time should be a noticeable buff.

  • Icons Gilgamesh A01Sun-Forged Scimitar
  • Increased damage to lane minions from 25% to 40%
  • Reduced HP5 from 20/25/30/35/40 to 10/15/20/25/30
  • Changed HP5 to be active at all times

T Loki Default Icon Loki

Our resident trickster hasn’t been performing well lately. We know how frustrating going up against Loki can be, so he is only receiving a small buff.

  • Icons Loki A01Vanish
  • Increased base damage from 30/45/60/75/90 to 35/50/65/80/95

T Ravana Default Icon Ravana

Ravana had a dominant stretch in the meta early in Year 10, but it was as a result of stacking Damage Mitigation. He just wasn’t hitting hard enough to warrant buying full damage, so we are giving him more scaling. Keep those hands up, he’s looking to fix some faces.

  • Icons Ravana A01Prana Onslaught
  • Increased Scaling from 90% to 95% of your Physical Power
  • Icons Ravana A04Mystic Rush
  • Increased Scaling from 100% to 110% of your Physical Power

T Sylvanus Default Icon Sylvanus

Changing a CC to no longer be reduced by Diminishing Returns is something we still want to use very sparingly, but Nature’s Grasp was a good candidate for it. Since Roots were changed to interact more consistently with Diminishing Returns, Sylvanus has struggled. Enemies hit by Nature’s Grasp are often able to move significantly before Sylvanus can, since their Stun duration happens while they are being pulled. With this change, that should happen less often.

  • Icons Sylvanus A03Nature's Grasp
  • Stun now no longer is reduced by Diminishing Returns

T Geb Default Icon Geb

  • Icons Geb A03Shock Wave
  • Increased Damage at max range of this ability from 70% of initial damage to 80%
  • Icons Geb A02Stone Shield
  • Decreased Cooldown from 18s to 17s

T Apollo Default Icon Apollo

Apollo was nerfed quickly after some significant community concern surrounding his spicy buffs. We are partially reverting the Mana Cost nerfs that we think have kept him from seeing play at higher levels now that we have seen that the rest of his buffs weren’t enough to push him into the meta.

  • Icons Apollo A01So Beautiful
  • Increased Physical Power Scaling from 85% to 90%
  • Icons Apollo A04Across the Sky
  • Decreased Mana Cost from 40 mana + 40/45/50/55/60 mana per second to 20 mana + 35/40/45/50/55 mana per second

T Medusa Default Icon Medusa

Medusa is almost in a great spot after her recent buffs, but just needs a little bit more help. Her mana costs are quite high, and even though she uses Transcendence well we would like to give her the option to get other items as well.

  • Icons Medusa A01Viper Shot
  • Increased Base Damage per shot from 15/20/25/30/35 to 20/25/30/35/40
  • Decreased Mana Cost from 50/55/60/65/70 to 50
  • Icons Medusa A02Acid Spray
  • Decreased Mana Cost from 60/65/70/75/80 to 40/45/50/55/60

T Chronos Default Icon Chronos

Although Mage ADCs have seen plenty of SPL play in recent months, Chronos has been noticeably absent. While increasing his Base Attack Speed may seem like a small buff, it means that any Attack Speed he receives will be more effective, including that which he gets from Accelerate.

  • General
  • Increased Base Attack Speed from 1 to 1.05
  • Icons Chronos A02Accelerate
  • Decreased Cooldown from 15s to 14s

T Zeus Default Icon Zeus

Despite Zeus being a premiere damage Mage, his ultimate doesn’t do much to help with that identity. We felt that Lightning Storm needed a bit more BOOM in the later stages of the game.

  • Icons Zeus LightningStormLightning Storm
  • Increased Base Damage from 100/130/160/190/220 to 100/145/190/235/280
