Yu Huang is one of the playable Gods in SMITE.


From the first moment of his existence, Yu Huang, the Jade Emperor, has sought only to enlighten and uplift both man and god. Kind, intelligent and wise, he devoted himself to helping the needy and showed respect to all living things. This was more difficult than one might imagine, for at this time the world was more dangerous.

Monsters and demons prowled the lands of men, and defied the will of the gods. The Heavenly Court was in disarray, and the gods had no leader to unite them. The Jade Emperor had not become emperor yet.

In this time, Yu Huang roamed the world as a demigod, helping those mortals that he could. But even his great powers could not contend with the sheer number of fell beings who haunted the earth. Heartsick and weary, he retreated to a mountain cave, where he spent the next several millennia cultivating his Dao.

But during this period there arose a great king among the demons who tormented the world. This demon king wished to rule the heavens and the earth, and made war upon the gods. The gods resisted and the demon king went into seclusion to expand its power through dark sorceries and twisted rites. After several millennia it returned at the head of an army of all the foulest things in creation, and resumed its conquest of existence, leading its army into the heavens to do battle with the gods themselves. But it did not do so unopposed – for the Jade Emperor had returned as well.

Even as the gods fell to the might of the demon king, Yu Huang ascended to the heavens and challenged the creature. Their duel shook the very pillars of heaven and the world itself nearly perished in the ensuing conflagration. In the end, the demon king was defeated – not by the might of Yu Huang, but rather by his benevolence and wisdom. The creature fell from the heavens, and only the gods know where it now rests.

In the aftermath, mortal and god alike acclaimed their savior the sovereign of sovereigns, and ruler of all creation. The Jade Emperor had ascended to his throne.


Passive - Master of the Dao
Yu Huang attunes himself to the Dao, giving his Basic Attacks and Abilities additional effects. He gains a stack of Dao every 8s. He may also gain a stack by hitting an enemy after not taking or dealing damage for 3s. Once he has 6 or more stacks, Yu Huang becomes Attuned, allowing his Basic Attacks chain to one additional enemy. Notes:
 Bullet.png Has a chain range of 30.
 Bullet.png If multiple enemies are in range of the chain, it will hit the closest enemy from the target Yu Huang damages with a basic attack.
 Bullet.png Chain Basic Attack Damage: 75%  Bullet.png Attunement Cost: 6 Dao

1st Ability - Flames of the Phoenix
Yu Huang conjures four cinders of the phoenix, spreading them in an X shape. The cinders rush inward, dealing damage once as they travel.

If Yu Huang is Attuned, when the cinders explode, all enemies in the area have their Magical Protections reduced. Notes:

3rd Ability - Celestial Flight
Yu Huang calls forth the Pearl Dragon from beneath him, banishing himself into the air and becoming untargetable. He then gracefully floats back down to the ground in a controlled flight, damaging enemies where he lands. While Yu Huang is floating, he may refire this ability to increase his downward momentum, causing him to fall faster. If Yu Huang is Attuned, the Pearl Dragon follows him as he descends, knocking back any enemies beneath him. Notes:
 Bullet.png Has a maximum air time of 3s and minimum of 1s.
 Bullet.png Yu Huang is immune to crowd control for the duration.

Ultimate - Dueling Dragons
Yu Huang manifests a huge surge of dragon-shaped energy, becoming CC immune and summoning the Pearl Dragon to oppose him. He then has 3s to aim his dragon of energy toward the Pearl Dragon, who will charge directly at it. Both dragons damage and push enemies caught in the blast. If the dragons collide, a damaging explosion occurs in the area. If Yu Huang is Attuned, the width of the dragons is increased by 50%. Notes:
