SMITE Season 5 patch notes released; patch 5.1 playable on the PTS

After a southern U.S. snowstorm caused a one-day delay in SMITE’s Season 5 patch notes debut of patch 5.1, the patch notes and public test server are finally live.

SMITE Season 5 Patch Notes

SMITE players haven’t seen a new map since the start of Season 2 three years ago — meaning newer players may have never seen anything besides the current Conquest map — and Season 5 looks to be the biggest changes both veteran and newbie players have ever seen.

The notes are enormous, and popcorn, a refreshing beverage and comfortable seating are recommended before you begin your examination of the 5.1 patch notes.

Conquest map changes

SMITE Season 5 Conquest Map
SMITE’s new, Season 5 Conquest map

First and foremost is the Conquest map. It’s no secret that there would be a new map; Hi-Rez has oft spoke about it, we’ve already seen videos and developer write-ups of changes to jungle buffs and bosses, technical improvements and more, and Hi-Rez Expo attendees from January 4-7 were among the first to try it out. Now that the patch notes are out, we can see the finer details that accompany the new SMITE map.

Visuals

  • Complete visual overhaul to the map: “Everything from the Jungle, Towers, Phoenixes, Bases, Titans, and much more have been completely re-done visually”
  • All jungle buffs and bosses have been remodeled

    • Cyclops Mage (Blue) changed to Satyr

Size, layout and symmetry

  • Map is 20% wider to “slightly slow down rotations and increase the importance of gaining advantages around the map through positioning choices”
  • Map layout changes:
    • Speed buff has been moved closer to each base, and a harpy camp is present in speed buff’s former locations
    • Oracles are no longer lumped in with the Gold Fury; rather, they are across from it
  • Map symmetry and visual clarity
    • Perfect map symmetry along the horizontal axis
    • There is a visual rift in the center that divides the two halves, which should make it clear to players when they are no longer on their side of the map
    • Important areas like Fire Giant and Gold Fury are visually higher than other areas of the map, creating landmarks

Titan and phoenix synergy

  • Titans and phoenixes visual clarity
    • Titans are now sheltered by a crystal, which will break when a phoenix is destroyed, meaning the titan can be targeted
    • Phoenixes are visually linked to the titan, so players can see which phoenixes are adding, or not adding, to the titan’s health pool
    • Pads under titans and phoenixes will light up for the player who is being targeted

Hi-Rez has opted for a soft reset going from Season 4 to Season 5. God leaderboards should now be more accurate, and players will notice a TP boost for players who were first pick (and therefore conducted the picks and bans phase for their team) and victorious.

    • The player who it First Pick in Ranked will receive bonus +3 TP if their team successfully wins.
  • God Leaderboards
    • Adjusted the formula to better account for amount of games played and the individual players skill.

Season 5 season ticket

Star Salvager Skadi Skin SMITE

Season 5 is here, so throw out your Season 4 ticket (and make sure to finish it up before patch 5.1 hits the live servers).

Hi-Rez is trying something new with the season ticket this year. Instead of players only earning specific rewards at each goal, they will now be able to spend their points directly in the Fantasy Points Store. According to Hi-Rez, “Each Patch a few of these skins will be replaced with new skins previously only unlockable through Chests.” The skins appear to be recolors of already existing skins, equivalent to the Undying Chest of past years.

The rewards for season ticket levels have not gone away, however, and players will still earn rewards at designated FP goals.

The season ticket is once again separated into splits with a bundle to be released for each split with a limited skin. The Spring Split Pass includes:

  • Limited Skin – Star Salvager Skadi
  • Unlock SMITE esports voting – Earn 30 FP for correct votes!
  • 10 Team Boosters – All Skins
  • Bonus Quests for additional FP
  • Earn Double Fantasy Points for every match you win or lose (based on match time)
  • Unlock Rewards such as Skins and Chest Rolls
  • Ability to spend Fantasy Points in the Fantasy Point Store

Continuation of the Ragnarok event

The Ragnarok event introduced with patch 4.25 will received its next bundle in patch 5.1: the Chaos Bundle. Players can once again spend 750 gems to receive two exclusive skins plus a key to unlock an Awesome Chest (giving a third exclusive skin) and some extra goodies.

  • Fiendish Flight Jing Wei
  • Fiendish Rage Cu Chulainn
  • Ragnarok Metal Theme
  • Ragnarok Loading Screen
  • Molten Key

Thanatos has also had his mastery skins updated.

Blessings and the removal of starter items

As we move onto item changes, here are where things start to get really crazy. Every starter item from Season 4 has been removed from the game (which is a huge change considering items like Bumba’s Mask and Death’s Toll have been around since SMITE’s beginnings) and replaced with something called blessings.

Two sets of blessings have been released, one catered to Conquest and one for off-modes. Hi-Rez says they are using blessings to highlight the “importance of roles in Conquest.” Blessings in other game modes will be more broadly applicable. Each one has a “quest” that encourages players to fulfill the tasks of their role.

  • All Blessings are still considered “Starter Items”
  • Each god may only get 1 Blessing per match. Once you have bought a blessing you are locked into it. If you sell it and leave base you will not be able to buy another, even of the same type.
  • There are 8 Unique Blessings divided into 2 sets. The first set is available in Conquest only. The other set is available in all other modes. There are no game modes that will have access to both sets at once.

Conquest blessings

ASSASSIN’S BLESSING
  • Assassin’s Blessing is for players who want to Jungle in Conquest. As with all Blessings, the bonus Damage, Penetration, and benefits this item provide do not care about being a Physical or Magical God. This allows traditional Mage Junglers like Ao Kuang to pick it up alongside their Assassin counterparts.
  • 700g
  • +35% Bonus Damage vs. Jungle Monsters
  • +7% Health Restored on Killing a Jungle Monster
  • +20 Mana Restored on Killing a Jungle Monster
  • ROLE QUEST: JUNGLE
    • Kill or Assist Jungle Monsters or Enemy Gods. Jungle Monsters are worth 1 Stack and Enemy Gods are worth 5 Stacks. At 50 Stacks, this item Evolves and gives +10 Penetration.

GUARDIAN’S BLESSING
  • Guardian’s Blessing is for players who want to Support in Conquest. With the reduction of splitting minion and jungle kills, we want to provide additional avenues for Supports to keep up with their team in Gold. By assisting nearby minions, players can evolve this item and gain bonus Gold Per 5 which will constantly accumulate gold for the Support.
  • 700g
  • +100 Health
  • +5 Physical Protection
  • +5 Magical Protection
  • +7 HP and Mana Restored per Lane Minion Assisted
  • +3 Gold per Lane Minion Assisted
  • ROLE QUEST: SUPPORT
    • Assist with Lane Minion kills to gain stacks. Each Assist is worth 1 stack. At 50 stacks, this item evolves and you gain bonus 3 Gold Per 5.

HUNTER’S BLESSING
  • Hunter’s Blessing is for players who want to play the Carry role in Conquest. Basic Attack focused characters (including Magical Carries like Chronos) will benefit from the boost to their in-hand damage and Attack Speed. This specifically stacks by defeating Lane Minions, encouraging players to focus on their wave while leaving the Jungle camps to the Jungler.
  • 700g
  • +15 Basic Attack Damage
  • +5 MP5
  • ROLE QUEST: CARRY
    • Kill or Assist Lane Minions or Enemy gods to gain stacks. Lane Minions are worth 1 Stack and Enemy gods are worth 5 Stacks. At 75 Stacks Hunter’s Blessing Evolves, gaining 15% Attack Speed and an additional 15 Bonus Basic Attack Damage.

MAGE’S BLESSING
  • Mage’s Blessing is for players who want to play the Mid role in Conquest. The Bonus Ability Damage combined with increasing Mana Regeneration encourages Mid players to use their abilities often. For some this may mean playing aggressive and poking, while others will focus on clearing efficiently. This shares the same Evolve trigger as Hunter’s Blessing, allowing players to swap between the two depending on how Basic Attack or Ability Damage focused they want to be.
  • 700g
  • +30 Bonus Ability Damage
  • +3MP5 per 10% Mana missing.
  • ROLE QUEST: MID
    • Kill or Assist Lane Minions or Enemy gods to gain stacks. Lane Minions are worth 1 Stack and Enemy gods are worth 5 Stacks. At 75 Stacks Mage’s Blessing Evolves, gaining 10% Cooldown Reduction.

WARRIOR’S BLESSING
  • Warrior’s Blessing is for players who want to play the Solo role in Conquest. Solo lane is all about pressuring your opponent in a one on one setting. Players using this blessing will be rewarded for consistently finding smart opportunities to damage their lane opponent. Whoever manages their Blessing better in the early game will be rewarded with a boost of tanky stats.
  • 700g
  • +50 Health
  • +3 Reduction of All Damage Taken
  • +40 of your health is restored upon dealing damage to an enemy god, 10s Cooldown
  • ROLE QUEST: SOLO
    • Dealing damage to an enemy god provides 1 stack. This effect can only occur once every 10s. Getting a Kill or Assist on an Enemy god provides 5 stacks. At 15 Stacks Warrior’s Blessing Evolves, gaining +10 Physical and Magical Protection.

Non-Conquest blessings

ATTACKER’S BLESSING
  • This Blessing is geared towards aggressive gods. The effects are flexible enough so that gods of any class can pick this item up and play aggressively.
  • 700g
  • +20 Physical Power
  • +25 Magical Power
  • ROLE QUEST: DAMAGE
    • Damage Lane Minions and Enemy gods to gain stacks. Dealing 100 damage to Lane Minions provide 1 Stack and dealing 100 damage to Enemy gods provide 3 stacks. At 50 Stacks Attacker’s Blessing Evolves, gaining 10 Penetration.

DEFENDER’S BLESSING
  • Defenders Blessing is good for anyone who wants a little more safety and tankiness in the early game. Guardians and Warriors might find this item helpful, but so could riskier picks who feel threatened more after seeing their opponents god choices.
  • 700g
  • +100 Health
  • +10 Physical Protection
  • +10 Magical Protection
  • ROLE QUEST: TANK
    • Mitigate damage to gain Stacks. Mitigating 50 damage provides 1 Stack. At 50 Stacks Defender’s Blessing Evolves, gaining +100 Health and Mana.

SPECIALIST’S BLESSING
  • This Blessing is especially flexible in its design. Any god can benefit from these stats but they will need to sacrifice DPS or protections. Specialist’s blessing also has an additional bonus for Healers in that they can use their team healing to stack the Blessing more quickly.
  • 700g
  • +10 MP5
  • +10% Cooldown Reduction
  • ROLE QUEST: ULTILITY
    • Damage enemies of Heal allies to gain stacks. Each time an enemy is damaged or an ally god is healed by your abilities, gain 1 Stack. Each ability can only trigger up to 3 stacks. At 50 Stacks Specialist’s Blessing Evolves, gaining +10% Movement Speed.

Item changes

Aside from blessings, there has been an overhaul to dozens of items, including the entire mage catalog. To see at a quick glance what has been changed, Hi-Rez has released an infographic. To see the finer details, you’ll have to read.
