SMITE Doesn’t Tick Around with Time by Adding Chronos, Keeper of Time in Patch 0.1.1616.1

It isn’t just Chronos that Hi-Rez Studios has added – they’ve made some pretty significant changes to Conquest in order to further test this balance between two MOBA METAs (Most Effective Tactic Available).

The forums have been a volatile environment since they released the most recent Conquest map change two weeks ago, but this one seems to solve a lot of problems people have felt from the previous.

Notable changes are:

  • Movement speed overall has been nerfed
  • Each player may only have 1 Jungle buff on at one time, and cannot override the previous one
  • Jungle buffs drop from the jungle creep that a player from the team that killed it may pick up within 30 seconds of killing the jungle buff creep
  • The 5 free gods new accounts receive have been changed to Poseidon, Neith, Ymir, Ra, and Thor
  • New item, Watcher’s Gift, to be a laning equivalent to Bumba’s Mask

Let’s not forget Chronos himself! Watch his video after the cut, and check out the rest of the patch notes following him.

Chronos – Keeper of Time

Wheel of Time (Passive): The wheel of time is always spinning and for Chronos, it is no different. Depending on where the wheel is when activating Accelerate, it provides a different benefit to Chronos.

  • Section I = +20% Magical Lifesteal
  • Section II = 75% Mana Refund On Abilities
  • Section III = +20% Magical Power
  • Section IV = +35% Magical Power Contribution to Basic Attacks

Time Rift (#1): Chronos creates a rift in time, dealing 80/125/170/215/260 (+85% of your magical power) magical damage to all enemies in the area.

  • Cost – 50/55/60/65/70 Mana
  • Cooldown – 5 seconds.

Accelerate (#2): Chronos accelerates himself over time, allowing him to progressively move 10/15/20/25/30% faster for 8 seconds. While active, his attack speed is increased by 20/25/30/35/40% and he is not affected by the attacking movement speed debuff. This ability also stops the Wheel of Time.

  • Cost – 70/75/80/85/90 Mana
  • Cooldown – 15 seconds.

Stop Time (#3): Shooting forward spinning gears of time, any enemies hit by Chronos’ attack are slowed to a stop, taking 30/50/70/90/110 (+40% of your magical power) magical damage on the initial hit and again when they are stunned for 1 second.

  • Cost – 65/70/75/80/85 Mana
  • Cooldown – 16/15/14/13/12 seconds.

Rewind (#4 Ultimate): Chronos travels through time to where he was 8 seconds ago, gaining health and mana back to the values of that time. All of his cooldowns are instantly reset as well.

  • Cost – 100 Mana
  • Cooldown – 120/110/100/90/80 seconds.

New Skins

  • Young Zeus
  • Golden He Bo
  • Legendary Skins: Every gold skin purchase will award a Legendary Skin that is automatically given to the player for that god when they achieve Mastery Rank 10. NOTE: If your god is already rank 10 prior to the patch then you must play one match that gives rewards to unlock the new skin.
