Last night Hi-Rez released new patch notes for Smite following the release of patch 3.20. Patch 3.21 will add a new god and make a plethora of changes to characters as well as general game improvements.
To start off, the new patch adds some new skins for the games characters. Noon Sylvanus gets a nice old west outfit with what appears to be a sombrero. Igneous Terra gets an outfit that seems to be a cross between her usual get up and Agni. Baron Frostchild Ymir gets a fancy top hat accompanied with a suit.
The new God to be introduced to the Smite lineup goes by the name Thoth and has a fairly decent set of skills that can be seen below.
Passive – Dead Reckoning
Each Time Thoth kills an enemy, he adds their name to his book, learning more about their weaknesses. For every 30 names in his book, he gains a stack of 5 Magical Penetration. At level 1 he can gain a maximum of 1 stack, 2 at level 5, 3 at level 9, 4 at level 13, 5 at level 17.
Thoth begins to gather magic from the air, ignoring the Basic Attack Movement penalty and conjuring 3 Hieroglyphs. His next 3 Basic Attacks pass through enemies and do Ability Damage (35/55/75/95/115 +25% Magical Power) instead. Cost: 60/65/70/75/80. Cooldown: 8s. If these attacks pass through the Glyph of Pain, their range is increased
Thoth dashes in the direction he is currently traveling. After dashing for 5s. Thoth’s next basic attack instead fires a magical projectile at the target which slows (20/25/30/35/40%) and deals ability damage (70/110/150/190/230 +60% of your Magical Power). Cost: 70/75/80/85/90. Cooldown: 18s. Slow Duration: 2.5s.
Glyph of Pain
From his book, Thoth conjures forth a Hieroglyph in front of him. Thoth’s ability projectile passing through the glyph receive increased damage (15/25/35/45/55 +10% Magical Power), and a range increase of 30. Cost: 60. Cooldown: 5s. Thoth and allies Basic attack projectiles receive a reduced damage bonus (5/10/15/20/25 +5% Magical Power), but no range increase.
Thoth begins summoning pages from his book, up to a maximum of four. When all four have been summoned, he sends them forward damaging (360/440/520/600/680 + 140% Magical Power) all enemies in their path. Cost: 90. Cooldown: 75. Thoth may activate this ability again to fire the ability early, doing a reduced amount of damage based on the number of pages currently summoned.
Overall the rest of the update makes some balancing changes for characters as well as adding a few new achievements. There will also be a new digital loot pack that “will contain 4 skins, a limited Ward Skin, Limited Global Emote, Limited Recall Effect, and a Divine Chest roll for 1500 Gems”.
