Every 5s, Khepri applies a shield to himself and nearby allied gods for 3% of the target's Maximum Health for 15s. The rate is slowed to every 10s while in combat (max. 15%).

Icons Khepri A01.png Abduct[]

Khepri lunges forward, dealing 80/140/200/260/320 (+40% of his Magical Power) damage to enemies he passes through. If he connects with an enemy god he stops, grabs them, and starts pulling them backwards. Enemies are silenced for the duration of the pull. Cost: 60. Cooldown: 15s.

Icons Khepri A02.png Rising Dawn[]

Khepri rolls the sun forward, setting ablaze all enemies it touches, reducing Physical Protections by 5/10/15/20/25%, and dealing 12/15/18/21/24 (+5% of his Magical Power) damage every .3s for 3s. Allies that are hit take 30/35/40/45/50% reduced damage from enemies for the duration. Cost: 40. Cooldown: 10s.

Icons Khepri A03.png Solar Flare[]

Khepri calls down the sun's ire at the target location, dealing 40/80/120/160/200 (+30% of his Magical Power) damage and rooting all targets in the area for 1.3/1.4/1.5/1.6/1.7s. Cost: 60/65/70/75/80. Cooldown: 15s.

Icons Khepri A04.png Scarab's Blessing[]

Khepri blesses an allied god, immediately cleansing them of all Crowd Control as well as granting them 5/10/15/20/25 Power, 20/25/30/35/40 Movement Speed, and immunity to Slow effects. If the marked ally would die while blessed, they are instead revived with a 40/45/50/55/60% of their maximum Health at Khepri's location. Cost: 80/90/100/110/120. Cooldown: 90.

Gods - Balance/Updates/Fixes[]


  • More Gods have had persisting recall fx cleaned up: Agni; Ah Muzen Cab; Cupid; Freya; Guan Yu; He Bo; Isis; Mercury; Nu Wa; Odin; and Ymir.

T AhPuch Default Icon.png Ah Puch[]

We removed the Slow on his Ultimate entirely. His Ultimate was too potent and offered little counterplay, especially when paired with the Slow on his Undead Surge. We like his burst playstyle and zone control, but we felt the Ultimate granted him too much safety, and removing the Slow takes away some of this safety.

  • Icons AhPuch A03.png Fleeting Breath
  • Fixed this skill dealing unintended damage. The bonus damage was counting an extra heal stack.
  • Icons AhPuch A04.png Empty the Crypts
  • No longer Slows enemies hit by Wraiths.

T AoKuang Default Icon.png Ao Kuang[]

  • Icons AoKuang A03.png Wild Storm
  • Fixed Polynomicon Passive activating on target when cast at max range.

T Athena Default Icon.png Athena[]

  • Icons Athena A01.png Preemptive Strike
  • Fixed being able to reset her Basic Attack progression when spam cancelling ability.
  • Icons Athena A04.png Defender of Olympus
  • Fixed her arrival fx persisting on Ally after her death.
  • Fixed audio from ability persisting after death.

T Awilix Default Icon.png Awilix[]

  • Icons Awilix A03.png Moonlight Charge
  • Fixed knockup duration being shortened if target was jumping.
  • Icons Awilix A04.png Gravity Surge
  • Fixed an issue where could not pull Hou Yi during Divebomb.

T Bacchus Default Icon Old.png Bacchus[]

  • General
  • Fixed some missing voice over lines when destroying objectives.

T Bellona Default Icon.png Bellona[]

Bellona's kit has many strengths, and in this patch we wanted to hit key points where we felt this strength was too much. The Slow granted from Shield Bash was too potent for a single point investment, and late game Eagle's Rally was coming up too often. This should allow for more counterplay at both early and late game stages.

  • Icons Bellona A01.png Shield Bash
  • Reduced Slow from 30% to 15/20/25/30/35%.
  • Icons Bellona A04.png Eagle's Rally
  • Increased Cooldown from 75/70/65/60/55 to 75s at all ranks.

T Chaac Default Icon.png Chaac[]

  • Icons Chaac A01.png Thunder Strike
  • Fixed Mana display issue when cast with full Passive.
  • Icons Chaac A03.png Rain Dance
  • Fixed Mana display issue when cast with full Passive.

T ChangE Default Icon.png Chang'e[]

  • Icons ChangE A01.png Crescent Moon Dance
  • Improved the accuracy of the Arc.
  • Fixed an issue with the magical scaling of this ability not applying properly.

T Freya Default Icon.png Freya[]

  • General
  • Updated weapon trails for Standard, Frost Maiden, and Mastery skins.

  • Fixed being able to go inside towers after using on target.

T Neith Default Icon.png Neith[]

  • General
  • Fixed the end of match music playing over her custom Victory music.
  • Icons Neith A04.png World Weaver
  • Fixed Standard voice playing when using ability with Carnaval skin.
  • Fixed a rare issue where ability fx persist at the end of match.

T Nox Default Icon.png Nox[]

  • Fixed targets displaying incorrectly at Low Shader Settings.

T Osiris Default Icon.png Osiris[]

  • Icons Osiris A03.png Judgement Tether
  • Fixed Osiris able to walk through players while ability is active.

T Ravana Default Icon.png Ravana[]

Ravana is in a much better place since the last changes, but we wanted to bring him up a little more. We increased the damage of his Overhead Kick and 10-Hand Shadow Fist slightly to help him trade better, and in conjunction with this allowed him to avoid damage and heal slightly more. These changes should bring out the dueling strengths that we like in Ravana.

  • Icons Ravana A02.png Overhead Kick
  • Reduced Cooldown from 16/15/14/13/12s to 14/13/12/11/10s.
  • Increased damage from 55/90/125/160/195 to 70/105/140/175/210.

  • Increased damage from 115/140/165/190/215 to 120/155/190/225/260.
  • Icons Ravana A04.png Mystic Rush
  • Fixed a rare occurrence where Ravana could get stuck in a wall from Janus Portals.
  • Fixed buff timer always showing 4s for each rank.

T Ratatoskr Default Icon.png Ratatoskr[]

Ratatoskr is meant to be a mobile menace. Unfortunately, his mobility made him too safe and frustrating to handle. Ratatoskr can now only Dart 3 times maximum, and his Ultimate will take longer to get Ratatoskr to safety. He should have some risk of engaging into the enemy team, and these changes should allow enemies the chance to capitalize on greedy plays.

  • Icons Ratatoskr A01 Old.png Dart
  • Decreased distance traveled from 40 to 35.
  • Is now limited to only 2 resets of Dart within 10s, for a maximum of 3 dashes.
  • Icons Ratatoskr A04.png Through the Cosmos
  • Increased setup time from 1s to 1.5s.

T Sylvanus Default Icon.png Sylvanus[]

  • This Passive now only triggers on melee Basic Attacks.

T Xbalanque Default Icon.png Xbalanque[]
