New SMITE patch brings Crabaken, a Mayan Guardian and the begining of the Odyssey

by: Nathan -

What time is it? Patch time! It's a patch week for SMITE, and as you many of you know, when a SMITE patch is released, there are usually tons of goodies that go along with it. This week we get a brand new god, new skins, emotes, and the beginning of the Odyssey. 

First up we have Crabaken, the first Mayan Guardian added to the game. 

Shadow Zone - Passive
Allies within 30ft of Cabrakan take 5% reduced damage.
Seismic Crush
Cabrakan becomes enraged, increasing his movement speed by 15/20/25/30/35% for 5s. While active, Cabrakan's next successful basic attack will stun for 1s and do 100/125/175/225/275 +50% of your magical power as bonus damage. Additionally, Cabrakan is immune to slows and roots while this ability is active. 
Refraction Shield
Passive: Cabrakan gains 15/20/25/30/35 increased Magical and Physical protections from his shields. As his shields take damage they store energy and gain up to 5 stacks but shed 3/4/5/6/7 protections per stack.
Active: Cabrakan slams his shields together creating a concussive blast and damaging enemies in front of him for 90/140/190/240/290 +50% of your Magical power. If his shields have max stacks then the enemies hit are stunned for 1s. 
Tremors
Cabrakan repeatedly slams the ground with his shields creating an earthquake and causing enemies around him to tremble. Enemies caught in the earthquake take 25/35/45/55/65 + 25% of your Magical power as damage every .5s and are slowly sucked in towards Cabrakan. 
Tectonic Shift
Cabrakan stomps the ground creating a wall of earth and a fissure that travels out in front of him and deals 100/200/250/300/350 +70% of your Magical power as damage to any enemies caught in its path. The walls may be destroyed if they take enough damage. Cabrakan may destroy his own walls with a single basic attack. 

Next up we have the addition of Diamond skins added to the game. Before, when you reached rank 10 with any god, you received a legendary skin for that characters. Now, Legendary skins will be awarded at rank 5 and Diamond skins will be awarded for those who reach rank 10. 

Also added are emotes. Only Thor and Nemesis have emotes at the time but more will be added overtime. Through the VGS in game commands, you can now Clap, Wave, Frustration, Dance and Special. Some emotes can be bought with favor and gems, while others can only be bought with gems. 

Finally, this patch begins the Odyssey, the epic 21 week journey to the SMITE World Championships on January 9th, 2015. Starting with the Roman Pantheon, each week a new item will be added to the Odyssey and all items bought will add money to the SMITE World Championship prize pool. The first item added is the Run.EXE Mercury skin. The more items you collect, the more rewards you get back including Treasure Chest rolls and exclusive items.
