Another patch coming for SMITE sometime next week and with it brings a complete reworking of Nu Wa. Nu Wa was added to the game late last year but he will become and entirely different character in the newest patch. Not only has her in game model gotten a complete overhaul but her kit has also been reworked as well. Here is a run down of her new abilities

Strength Of Wood - Passive - After 5 successful basic attacks, Nu Wa's next basic attack will root enemies.

Mysterious Fog - Nu Wa condenses moisture into fog at her location which then rolls forward away from her. She and all allies are stealthed while inside the fog, and have increased movement speed. Attacking breaks the stealth effect. Enemies that run into the fog take 50/100/150/200/250 + 50% of her magical power as damage, and continue to take 20% of that damage again every second they are in the fog. 

Clay Soldiers - Nu Wa conjures Clay Soldiers from the earth. These soldiers have health equal to 200 plus 20% of Nu Wa's maximum health, and deal 20/30/40/50/60 damage with basic attacks. Enemies hit by their initial charge will take damage and have their magical protections reduced by 5/10/15/20/25 for 2s. 

Shining Metal - Nu Wa launches a mass of shining metal, dealing 90/140/190/240/290 + 50% of her magical power to all enemies it hits. If it hits one of her Clay Soldiers, it explodes, dealing 40/80/120/160/200 in additional damage and stunning enemies for 1/1.2/1.4/1.8/2s. 

Fire Shards - Nu Wa flies up into the clouds, gaining visibility on all enemy gods, and summoning fire shards from the sky to deal 100/175/250/325/400 + 50% of her magical power as damage to each of them.

Zeus also gets a an update as his in game model has gotten a complete update. 

A new addition to the game is the Treasure Chest. The Treasure Chest allows you to spend gems in order to unlock a random item. These items can include ward skins, voice packs, god skins and new rare skins that can only be unlocked from the Treasure Chest. Two of these Treasure Chest only skins include "Nuclear Winter" Ymir and "Derpules" Hercules.

There was another skin added to the game and it appears that the zombie apocalypse has begun as "The Survivor" Ullr complete with Zombie killing gear has also been added. 

Finally, the new free go rotation is Zeus, Hades, Tyr, Ullr and Loki.
