Icons Heimdallr A01 Piercing Sight

Icons Heimdallr A02 Gjallarhorn

Heimdallr blows the Gjallarhorn for 2s, causing enemies in front of him to lose Movement and Attack Speed while taking damage every .5s. While blowing his horn Heimdallr is immune to knockups and gains bonus protections. When Heimdallr ends this cast, either through cancelling it himself or after 2s, he raises the Gjallarhorn for a final blast. This blast damages enemies and knocks them away from Heimdallr.

Icons Heimdallr A03 The Bifrost

Heimdallr manifests a fragment of the Bifrost at his target location. When two fragments are placed they become linked, allowing Heimdallr to traverse the Bifrost. The greater the distance between the fragments the longer it takes to begin traversing and the longer it takes for it to be usable again. If Heimdallr places a third fragment down, the oldest fragment vanishes. Enemies that walk between two fragments are revealed to Heimdallr.

Icons Heimdallr A04 Through the Realms

Heimdallr charges forward, axe ready. If Heimdallr hits an enemy god he stuns them before unleashing a devastating swing of his axe, launching his target into the sky. A Bifrost portal appears and Heimdallr sends the launched foe through the realms of Muspelheim and Niflheim before returning them back to the battleground at a random location in front of him. Muspelheim burns the enemy every .5s for 1.5s while Niflheim slows the enemy for 2.5s.

Project Olympus

Full Console Mouse and Keyboard Support Change or feature implemented based on feedback and discussion with The Olympians

  • You will need to enable a setting manually to switch input modes.
  • This setting can be found at the bottom of the list on the “Controls” tab.
  • This will now change your HUD and allow full control of the UI with either control scheme on supported platforms.
  • KBM is not supported on nintendo Switch. All other platforms can support gamepad or KBM.

Crossplay Changes Change or feature implemented based on feedback and discussion with The Olympians

  • Matchmaking will now be based on control scheme not platform.
  • Removed the general crossplay option.
  • Matchmaking is KBM only or Gamepad only in Arena, Joust, Conquest in NA and EU, and Ranked modes in all regions.
  • All other modes/regions will match KBM and Gamepad together.
  • Crossplay parties are allowed in all modes except Ranked, and those parties will be matched based on majority control scheme, with ties being matched against KBM players.
  • You will not be able to use KBM while “Xbox Only” or “PS4 Only” mode is enabled. These options will force the use of gamepads. These options will also only be allowed in Normal Modes, not Ranked.
  • Fixed an issue with Xbox Only and PS4 Only modes matching you against players of other platforms. It should be noted that very few players use this option and it will hurt your chances of getting matches to have it enabled.

Game Modes

Item Balance

JadeEmperorsCrown T3 Jade Emperor's Crown

This item has single handedly allowed guardians like Jormungandr to dominate the solo lane. The combined stats of this item plus the power reduction aura makes it so that enemy warriors or ganking assassins do very little damage to the target.Change or feature implemented based on feedback and discussion with The Olympians

  • Decreased Physical Power reduction Aura from 30 to 20.

God Balance

T Camazotz Default Icon Camazotz

This underworld creature has been underappreciated most of this year. Camazotz had a brief showing in the worlds placements as a King Arthur counter, but aside from that this god has rarely been seen in any level of play. Camazotz is seeing some big buffs this patch to focus on his primary design feature: lifesteal. His passive lifesteal is being increased on both abilities where it can be obtained, and his bonus healing is rising to prevent him from being easily countered by anti-heals. Finally, his leap range is being increased to closer to the usual distance to help him chase or escape like the true assassin he is!Change or feature implemented based on feedback and discussion with The Olympians

  • Icons Camazotz Passive Essence Drinker
  • Increased Passive Buff from 6% to 8% Physical Lifesteal and Increased Healing.
  • Icons Camazotz A02 Vampire Bats
  • Increased Vampirism Buff from 3% to 4%.
  • Icons Camazotz A03 Devour
  • Increased Range from 30 units to 45 units.

T Jormungandr Default Icon Jormungandr

Many players have claimed this destroyer of gods is unbeatable in the solo lane. Jormungandr's win rate doesn't necessarily point to him being OP, but his pick rate is through the roof and a large amount of solo laners struggle to out lane him. We are increasing the damage Jorm takes while debuffed from his passive to help players pick more specific counters to the big snake. He will also be heavily affected by the Jade Emperor's Helm change.

  • Icons Jormungandr Passive Immovable
  • Increased damage taken from 10% to 15% when this debuff is active.

T Kukulkan Default Icon Kukulkan

A mighty storm indeed. After his recent buffs Kukulkan's metrics skyrocketed to be pretty clearly the winningest god in all of SMITE, across all game modes and skill levels. These buffs overperformed our expectations, so we are toning him back down slightly. Both of these changes target the exact same things we buffed, and partially revert them. This should put Kukulkan is a nice spot in between these two balance points.Change or feature implemented based on feedback and discussion with The Olympians

  • Icons Kukulkan 03 Whirlwind
  • Partial revert on Whirlwind application time.
  • Increased refresh/application time from 0.25s to 0.35s.
  • Partial revert on Whirlwind damage.
  • Decreased Damage per tick from 10/20/30/40/50 to 9/18/27/36/45.

T Olorun Default Icon Olorun

Mage ADCs have created some interesting balance situations throughout Season 6. Olorun has been in a relatively good spot since his launch, but has risen to a slightly dangerous level recently. His early game is intended to be a bit slower to even out his devastating late game. Olorun has unique power scaling on basic attacks for Mages so he highly benefits from Base Power. This is being toned down to make Olorun's early game less threatening, but not return it to his original state where it was nonexistent.

  • General
  • Decreased Base Power from 40 to 38.

T Set Default Icon Set

This hyper carry can output an insane amount of late game damage. This god was a popular pick in the placement stages of worlds and often was the game changer for his team. Set is a high skill god that does not excel in all places, so we are applying a rather small nerf to him just to mitigate his max damage potential.Change or feature implemented based on feedback and discussion with The Olympians

  • Icons Set A01 Skewer
  • Increased Cooldown from 7s to 8s.

T Yemoja Default Icon Yemoja

This goddess has launched at quite a low balance point yes it's true! Yemoja is one of the lowest win-rate gods across all game modes and skill levels. Through our usual process we focused on gathering data and addressing quality of life concerns and bugs instead of quickly buffing underperforming launches. This has been our strategy all year and its led to very positive community feedback. However, now that we have enough data we have decided the goddess of rivers really does need some changes.

One of the primary dislikes about Yemoja was her build paths. Her passive forced builds to be very constrained, so 2 of her 3 Bonus Omi are being shifted to be earned through level, while only 1 requires a mana item to be built. Another issue we noticed was that players were rarely making contact with her abilities. Her offensive abilities have strange shapes and scaling sizes which makes them especially difficult to land, so both forms of ability 1 are seeing slight increases. Her healing was also lower than expected for a Goddess designed to play that role, so this is being slightly increased as well.Change or feature implemented based on feedback and discussion with The Olympians

  • General
  • Yemoja will be banned on Infinite Mana Match of the Day Modes.
  • King Arthur will also be banned in these modes.
  • Icons Yemoja Passive Omi
  • Changed objectives to earn Omi from 300/450/600 mana and MP5 to:
  • Bonus Omi 1: Reaching lvl 4.
  • Bonus Omi 2: Reaching lvl 12.
  • Bonus Omi 3: Obtaining 300 Mana/MP5 from items.
  • Icons Yemoja A01 Bouncing Bubble
  • Increase radius from 12 to 14.
  • Icons Yemoja A01B Moonstrike
  • Increase min radius from 10 to 12.
  • Icons Yemoja A02 Mending Waters
  • Increased healing from 20/40/60/80/100 to 30/55/80/105/130.
