New patch for SMITE and with it brings the first Hindu Guardian, Kumbakharna, to the game.
Kumbakharna has an interesting passive as when he runs out of health, he doesn't die. Instead of dying, Kumbakharna sleeps. If he is hit with 6 basic attacks, he will die. If not, he awakens with 25% health and mana. This can only happen every 240 seconds to keep it balanced.
Here is a rundown of his abilities.
- Kumbhakarna does not die when he reaches 0 health, instead he falls asleep. He will awaken after 8s at 25% health and mana, unless hit with 6 basic attacks (+1 every 5 levels) while sleeping. This passive has a 240s cooldown.
- Throw Back
Kumbhakarna sleepily runs forward. If he hits an enemy he stops and deals 70/140/210/280/350 +50% of his magical power as damage. If the enemy is a minion, he throws them, and the flying minion deals 90/160/230/300/370 + 60% of his magical power as damage to each enemy it passes through. Cooldown 15s. Cost 60/65/70/75/80.
- Groggy Strike
Kumbhakarna rears back for a heavy smash that roots enemies for 1.5s and deals 50/90/130/170/210 +50% of his magical power as damage. Cooldown 10s. Cost 50/55/60/65/70.
- Mighty Yawn
Kumbhakarna lets out a mighty yawn that mezes all enemies in range for 1.5/2/2.5/3/3.5s. If awakened early from mez, enemies are slowed 40% for 1/1.25/1.5/1.75/2s. Kumbhakarna may use this ability while asleep. Cooldown 15s. Cost 70/75/80/85/90.
- Epic Uppercut
Kumbhakarna moves forward a short distance, stopping at the first enemy god he encounters, and delivers a massive melee swing that knocks the enemy directly up into the air for 2.2s. When the enemy god lands, it deals 300/400/500/600/700 +50% of his magical power as AOE damage to itself and Kumbhakarna’s foes, and causes Knockback. Cooldown 60s. Cost 100.
Also included in this patch is the Scarlet Coven skin for Isis, and as a Isis player, I am very excited about this.
Finally, the new free god rotation is Aphrodite, Sobek, Chaac, Apollo and Thanatos.
