It's one of the most exciting weeks for a SMITE player and if you play any MOBA you know that new character releases are always fun. Well, fun when you get hyped up for a new character, and then all the fun goes out the window when everyone instalocks said character and ruins games. Khepri jungle? Is this real life?
Anyways, SMITE is getting a new Goddess in the next patch and it will be Sol, the Norse Goddess of the Sun. Sol will fill the role of a mage and in my opinion, kinda looks like her kit will be a combination of Freya and Agni. She is a mage that deals high auto attack damage which means that she could fill the ADC role in the duo lane, but she also seems like she will be a beat in the mid lane.
Her first ability heals her, ignites the ground, and deals damage to any enemies that step into the fire
Her second ability is a upgrade to her basic attack and creates a shockwave that travels out and deals damage to nearby enemies.
Her third ability allows her to create a trail of fire behind her that deals damage to enemies. At the end of 3 seconds the trail explodes and stuns enemies.
Finally, her ultimate, which is like Agni and Hou Yi's ultimates combined allows her to paint an area of the map, after a short time 8 beams of flame fall from the sky on the target location where she painted.
Be sure to check out Hi-Rez's Dev Insight on Sol for the full rundown of her abilities, her lore and some great Q&A from the dev team.
Also introduced in the new patch is a really cool Halloween update where the Arena map has gotten a spooky overhaul including decorations, new music, zombie minions, and anyone that dies on the map will leave behind a tombstone.
The Halloween chest will also be making a return and will feature some of the legacy content including past Halloween themed skins plus the exclusive new "Mariachi" Loki skin.
