SMITE: Demigods, Deities and Gods Explained – Sylvanus

lh_dieties_demigods_gods_explained_smite_Sylvanus_Default_CardSMITE: Demigods, Deities and Gods Explained is a column dedicated to introducing prospective players of SMITE to its massive back story of lore. From the Greek to Hindu, each week we’ll look at two characters from a major pantheon and provide a quick recap of their history and in what capacity their digital incarnation will represent on the field of Hi-Rez Studios’ new MOBA.

Lore: Sylvanus – not to be confused with Sylvanas – may very well be the first true tutelary deity to make the cut for SMITE. He’s not a born bloodthirsty warrior or a hungry demon. Sylvanus was a protector of nature and what it offers humanity. Lording over his realm, the woods and fields, Sylvanus ensured that his followers could provide for those. The woodland deity kept livestock safe, healthy and procreating while warding off hungry packs of wolves.

It’s said that Sylvanus, an old wise man, began the craft of demarking the boundaries of fields. This lead to his legend continuing to modern times; three stones mark various points of entry into estates. Fond of music, the Keeper of the Woods and Fields was often depicted with his sacred syrinx. The only object he doted on more was Cyparissus.

In other news, it appears the originally joke-filled pantheon of the Romans is heading towards a serious nature.

In-Game: Sylvanus maintains his historical depiction as a protector of his. Designed as yet another magical melee guardian, Sylvanus allows nature to protect his allies and himself. His passive has a 25% chance to root those foolish enough to assault him while others actively disable his enemies. Through seeds, pods, wisps and the Earth itself, Sylvanus harries enemies and even throws a few buffs on his friends.

Sylvanus won’t impress in the kill count, but earns more than a fair share of assists. Empower yourself with magic power to mildly increase damage and healing potential. Focusing on magical power isn’t optimal though. Tanking is your first priority helped by cooldown reduction. Go after the likes of Void Stone, Rod of Asclepius and Sovereignty to laugh at your rooted foes as your teammates tear them to pieces. Why be violent when others will do the work for you?
