Baron Samedi, Chernobog, Freya and Ne Zha to get nerfs in SMITE patch 5.16

SMITE Lead Designer Ajax announced nerfs for “top performing gods” Baron Samedi, Chernobog, Freya and Ne Zha in SMITE patch 5.16. The 5.16 patch notes were already released last week with only a couple balance changes, so the nerfs to these four gods are additional nerfs that were not in the original patch notes.

The nerfs are as follows:

Baron Samedi

Consign Spirits

  • Decreased mana cost from 75 to 60
  • This ability no longer provides slow immunity (still cleanses slows on hit)
  • Changed movement speed buff from 20/25/30/35/40% to 25% at all ranks

Chernobog

Living Nightmare

  • Reduce damage mitigation from 10/17.5/25/32.5/40% to 10/15/20/25/30%
  • Decreased max number of stacks from slow from 5 to 4

Freya

Northern Lights

  • Decreased base damage from 70/110/150/190/230 to 50/90/130/170/210

Ne Zha

Righteous Spirit

  • This ability no longer provides physical power per stack (decreased from .5 power per stack to 0 per stack)

The changes will go live with patch 5.16’s release.
