SMITE gets it's first Chinese Guardian in the newest patch

SMITE is getting a new patch soon and Hi-Rez pulled back the curtain on Xing Tian. Xing Tian will be another Guardian much like Khepri but he will also be the first Chinese Guardian added to the game. Looking at Xing's kit, he is very much a Guardian as he has high cc (crowd control) moves, but he also seems like he could hold his own in the solo lane. Unofficially, it seems like he may be the first magical Warrior added to the game as well. 

As for Xing's kit, he has a roar which reduces enemies basic attack damage, a slam which sends enemies into the air and rooting them on impact, a leap which deals damage. 

His ultimate however is awesome. Xing swings his blade three times in a circle and any gods that are in the circle are swept up and thrown, landing them all in a nice pile for the AOE's to clean up. Seriously, it's almost like an Ares ult, so you and your team best be buying beads immediately or you can expect to die, a lot.

There are a couple of new skins coming in the patch as well including "Indomitable" Xing Tian, which is his recolor, "Ragnarok" Fenrir, an updated "Volcanic" Agni skin and Ratatoskr's Gold, Legendary and Diamond skins. 

For a full list of all of the patch notes, including buffs (welcome back Guan Yu!) and nerfs (Weakening Curse is now useless in Assault) be sure to check out SMITE's official website. You can also check out the full rundown of Xing Tian's abilities including his damage numbers, scaling % and cooldowns there as well.
