SMITE: The Rising Dawn Patch Notes
KHEPRI, THE DAWN BRINGER
At dawn, the sun lifts above the horizon, bathing mankind in color and life. At dusk, it sinks beneath the edge of the world, lost to sight, casting all into darkness. While the sun shines on the realm of mortal kind, it is radiant Ra that guides it, but at night we share the sun with the underworld. It is not Ra that moves the sun along its subterranean path but Khepri, the scarab God, he who comes with the dawn.
Scarabs form dirt and dung into perfect spheres. Within, they lay eggs from which their young emerge fully formed. Using powerful arms and legs, scarabs can roll these spheres many times their own size at incredible distances. It is from their father, Khepri, the sacred scarab gained this power. For the Dawn Bringer, the Sun is his sphere and all souls, living and dead, his children.
Khepri is a guardian, a protector and a friend. He is a symbol of power and loyalty. Usually content to stay aloof, Khepri has risen for battle to defend existence from this shattering war. He will fight to shield us until the final sunset.
Yet, it is he that brings the dawn.
•Fixed an issue with the buff tooltip not displaying properly.
•Fixed an issue where the passive meter would tick early.
•The meter should now be more readable overall.
Khepri lunges forward, dealing 80/140/200/260/320 (+40% of his Magical Power) damage to enemies he passes through. If he connects with an enemy god he stops, grabs them, and starts pulling them backwards. Enemies are Crippled for the duration of the pull.
•Khepri will now be able to cancel this ability while pulling a target.
Khepri rolls the sun forward, setting ablaze all enemies it touches, reducing Physical Protections by 5/10/15/20/25%, and dealing 12/15/18/21/24 (+5% of his Magical Power) damage every .3s for 3s. Allies that are hit take 30/35/40/45/50% reduced damage from enemies for the duration.
Khepri calls down the sun’s ire at the target location, dealing 40/80/120/160/200 (+30% of his Magical Power) damage and rooting all targets in the area for 1.3/1.4/1.5/1.6/1.7s.
Khepri blesses an allied god, immediately cleansing them of all Crowd Control as well as granting them 5/10/15/20/25 Power, 20/25/30/35/40 Movement Speed, and immunity to Slow effects. If the marked ally would die while blessed, they are instead revived with a 40/45/50/55/60% of their maximum Health at Khepri’s location.
•Fixed an issue with rank 5 of this ability where Khepri could move during the revival if this ability was used on himself.
•Tooltip now properly displays the ability’s duration.
•Fixed an issue with the buff tooltip not displaying properly.
Added grass that deteriorates over time.

More Gods have had persisting recall fx cleaned up: Agni; Ah Muzen Cab; Cupid; Freya; Guan Yu; He Bo; Isis; Mercury; Nu Wa; Odin; and Ymir.
We removed the Slow on his Ultimate entirely. His Ultimate was too potent and offered little counterplay, especially when paired with the Slow on his Undead Surge. We like his burst playstyle and zone control, but we felt the Ultimate granted him too much safety, and removing the Slow takes away some of this safety.
Fleeting Breath: Fixed this skill dealing unintended damage. The bonus damage was counting an extra heal stack.
Empty the Crypts: No longer Slows enemies hit by Wraiths.
Wild Storm: Fixed Polynomicon Passive activating on target when cast at max range.
Preemptive Strike: Fixed being able to reset her Basic Attack progression when spam cancelling ability.
Defender of Olympus:
- Fixed her arrival fx persisting on Ally after her death.
- Fixed audio from ability persisting after death.
Gravity Surge: Fixed an issue where could not pull Hou Yi during Divebomb.
Fixed some missing voice over lines when destroying objectives.
Bellona’s kit has many strengths, and in this patch we wanted to hit key points where we felt this strength was too much. The Slow granted from Shield Bash was too potent for a single point investment, and late game Eagle’s Rally was coming up too often. This should allow for more counterplay at both early and late game stages.
Shield Bash: Reduced Slow from
30% to 15/20/25/30/35%.
Thunder Strike: Fixed Mana display issue when cast with full Passive.
Crescent Moon: Improved the accuracy of the Arc.

- Fixed Standard voice playing when using ability with Carnaval skin.
- Fixed a rare issue where ability fx persist at the end of match.
Shadow Step: Fixed targets displaying incorrectly at Low Shader Settings.
Judgement Tether: Fixed Osiris able to walk through players while ability is active.
Ratatoskr is meant to be a mobile menace. Unfortunately, his mobility made him too safe and frustrating to handle. Ratatoskr can now only Dart 3 times maximum, and his Ultimate will take longer to get Ratatoskr to safety. He should have some risk of engaging into the enemy team, and these changes should allow enemies the chance to capitalize on greedy plays.
- Decreased distance traveled from
- Is now limited to only 2 resets of Dart within 10s, for a maximum of 3 dashes.
Through the Cosmos: Increased setup time from
1s to 1.5s.
