Ullr, The Glorious One, arrives on the battlefield tomorrow in SMITE.

More On: SMITE

It's the final week before SMITE's big launch and $200,000 tournament and one more god will be joining the battlefield before the release. Tomorrows patch will bring Ullr, The Glorious One, to the game and will be a hunter with the ability to switch his stances. Like Hel, Ullr doesn't have a true ultimate. Instead, his ultimate is used to switch between a ranged bow and arrow and melee axes. Ullr seems like he is going to be a pretty advanced character and it's gonna take some practice with him to use all of his abilities to their full advantage. Here is the rundown on his abilities. 

  • Passive - Weapon Master
    When Ullr uses an ability in either stance his cooldowns in the opposite stance are reduced. 
  • Bladed Arrow / Thrown Axe
    Ranged: Ullr fires a bladed arrow in a line, dealing damage and passing through all targets it hits.
    Melee: Ullr throws an axe in a line, hitting a single target dealing damage and stunning it.

  • Expose Weakness / Invigorate
    Ranged: Ullr gains bonus physical power for 5s.
    Melee: Ullr gains bonus move speed for 5s.

  • Hail of Arrows / Glory Bound
    Ranged: Ullr fires a volley at his target location, dealing damage.
    Melee: Ullr leaps to his target location, dealing damage in an AoE on arrival.

  • Wield Axes / Wield Bow
    Ullr changes stances.
    Ranged: Ullr uses his yew bow, gaining additional attack speed.
    Melee: Ullr uses his axes, gaining additional physical lifesteal. 

Also included with this patch is quite possibly the greatest skin ever created by Hi Rez. Sun Wukong gets a "Dark Lord" skin complete with new FX, sounds, taunts and a new voicepack. To put it simply, Darth Maul Sun Wukong. I'm not sure how much it will cost but Hi Rez will be taking all my money when it is released tomorrow. 

Hades "Nightmare" skin will now be his default skin. Players who previously bought the skin will be refunded 400 gems and the original skin will be available to everyone who bought Hades until now, for free. Aphrodite also gets a make over in this patch as she has received an update to her 3D model. 

Finally, the new free god rotation will be Fenrir, Artemis, Hades, Poseiden and Sun Wukong. There won't be any more big patches until the launch and the tournament is over so this will most likely be the free god rotation for the next few weeks. 

Be sure to check out the full list of patch notes and join in on the official conversation on SMITE's official Reddit page.
