SMITE gets an update, possibly tomorrow, and with it brings the new and improved Kali. Kali has been in the game for a while but is getting a major revamping of her model, FX and her abilities. 

Here is a rundown of her new and updated abilities. 

Marked for Death (PASSIVE)

  • A random enemy god is selected as Kali's Death Mark. Kali gains a physical penetration bonus against that god, and if she lands the killing blow, she heals for 80% of her maximum health and receives a +25% gold bonus. A new Death Mark is selected any time her current target dies, or if Kali dies, it is set to whoever last hit her.

Nimble Strike

  • Kali leaps forward, damaging enemies in the target area for 70/120/170/220/270 +80% of her physical power, and healing herself for 20% of the missing health from the most damaged target she hit. Cost - 70. Cooldown - 12s.


  • Kali throws 3 blades that converge upon the target location. Each blade deals 30/40/50/60/70 damage +20% of her physical power. A hit will apply a 3s bleed effect of 5/10/15/20/25 +5% of her physical power every 0.5s. This bleed does not stack. Kali gains 5/10/15/20/25 basic attack lifesteal against targets affected by this bleed. Cost - 60/65/70/75/80. Cooldown - 15/14/13/12/11s.


  • Kali hurls her incense at her feet, exploding it. Enemies hit are stunned, while Kali gains a 10/20/30/40/50 physical power bonus for 3/3.5/4/4.5/5s. Cost - 70. Cooldown - 18s.


  • Kali becomes an unstoppable force of destruction, creating a damage aura around her of 20/25/30/35/40 +5% of her physical power every 0.5s. During this time, she can be reduced to 1 health, but cannot die. She is immune to knockup, slow effects and protected from root, but still vulnerable to stuns. Cost - 60/70/80/90/100. Cooldown - 90s.

Along with the new Kali, Odin will receive his golden skin and Christmas themed skins for Fenrir, Hel and Baccus will be available from now until January 8th.
