It's that time again. New SMITE patch this week and this time around we are getting Sylvanus a brand new Guardian.
Here is a rundown of his abilities.
Sylvanus is unique in that he is the first Guardian in the game whose basic attack can go over a target. All of the ranged basic attacks in the game follow a straight line in front of your god. Sylvanus however throws a projectile in the air. This will be great for hitting targets that may be blocked by enemy minions or guards.
We also got some new skins this week including "Pajama Party" Kumbhakarn, "Infinity Wave" He Bo, which is the newest Odyssey item and "Sugar and Spice" Hel.
Also introduced in this patch is the much needed League qualifying. New players will have to participate in at least 10 qualifying matches to get them placed in a proper division and tier. This is a great addition as new player would often join league matches, not perform well and cause their team to lose, which isn't their fault since they don't really know what they are doing. Hey, practice makes perfect.
Finally, your new free god rotation is Aphrodite, Geb, Anhur, Hercules and Fenrir.
