HiRez released yet another patch today, the hotly awaited one that adds in Ares – Pun intended. You can check for a quick recap on Ares here.
Along with a bug fix on Bastet’s jump ability – which annoyed the hell out of me and makes me happy it’s fixed – and some changes to Sobek and Sun Wukong, most of the patch is Ares and some new skins. The special skin of note is the Sobek Pirate one, which cannot be purchased with Favor, and costs 600 gems to unlock.
Check out the full change log from HiRez themselves:
- CHANGES TO CONSUMABLES AND ABILITIES: There are now 2 consumable slots and 2 ability item slots (meaning you may now hold two different types of consumables at the same time). A button has also been added to “swap” slots on your abilities, for those wanting to keep an ability in the same slot (for consistency of key binding).
- NEW EPIC SKIN (HIGH SEAS SOBEK): Say hello to a pirate-themed Sobek, along with his sidekick parrot.
- ADDITIONAL NEW SKINS: Destroyer Ares, Typhoon Ao Kuang, Demon Slayer Kali, Death Dealer Sobek
- RANKINGS: A “Top Ranked Players” stats page has been added under PROFILE in the menus. In addition, some adjustments have been made to the algorithms for ranking players in Ranked Matches. For fairness, the ranks of players have been re-adjusted to reflect the changes in the new system, based on their previous match history (so some players may see changes in their rank).
- SPECTATOR: More spectator cleanups including a new process for viewing the match in the match lobby. Continue Reading

Is there a better way to start my blogging career than letting you all know about my gaming background? I don’t think so, but somehow someone is going to come up with a better idea in the comments and I’ll end up looking really rogue-ish silly.
Kershocker's Armory Picture
Oh well, let me introduce myself first. My name is Carlos, also known as Kershocker. Some of you may recognize that name. If so, that’s because I’ve been following this website since it was launched and I like sharing my opinions with others. I’m currently living in Peru and I’m studying Economics and International Business at the university.
Follow me after the cut to learn more about my gaming years.
I’m pretty sure most of us did not play MMORPGs during our childhood. Well, I didn’t, anyway. During that time, I was deeply in love with console games. Super Nintendo and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers kept me busy for a while until the Nintendo 64 came along, with Star Fox 64 being my game of choice.
After that, I was forced to stay away from video games for a couple of years due to some health issues. I came back during the PlayStation 2 era, which I really enjoyed. Guitar Hero, God of War and Devil May Cry are amazing games. Most recently, the PlayStation 3 came out and I bought it immediately upon release. What can I say? PlayStation is my favorite console.
I’m only 18, so, as you may imagine, I have not played as many MMOGs as my fellow Lore Hounds. Still, I think it would be interesting to recap my history just to let you know I’m not a complete rookie when it comes to video games. Continue Reading
