Smite 10.2 February 21, 2023 Patch Notes

New God Martichoras – The King of the Manticores

  • Basic attacks apply Venom and deal 5% Basic Attack Power over 2s. The initial hit applies 4 stacks, hits refresh, and increases damage by 1 stack, with a maximum of 8 stacks.
  • Monstrosity: Martichoras gains up to 100 stacks of Ferocity for hitting Basic attacks, Abilities and earning kills or assists. Once maxed, he loses all Ferocity and gains an Attack Speed buff that increases in duration by Basic Attacking gods. He also gets a permanent Monstrosity stack of 1% for Physical Lifesteal and 1%for Physical Ability Lifesteal.
  • Acid rain: Martichoras fires multiple venomous spikes from his wings, creating a circular rain of spikes dealing damage as it moves forward. As the rain moves, it leaves a toxic trail that slows and damages all enemies in its trail.
  • Poisoned barb: Martichoras shoots a stinger, dealing damage, going through minions, and stopping on the first enemy god it hits. The stinger clings attached to the enemy god for 3s, reducing their healing or at a point on the ground. Martichoras player can explode it by hitting it with a basic attack or ability. This explosion deals damage, reduces healing, and Roots the God who got hit with it.
  • Stalk prey: Martichoras creates a patch of stealth grass where he and all allies gods can hide. While inside and on exiting the patch, Martichoras gains a Movement Speed boost. Martichoras’ Basic Attacks from stealth gain 10% additional Basic Attack Damage up front and apply 8 stacks of Venom. Enemies may reveal anyone hidden in the patch by entering it or placing a ward inside its range.
  • Death from Above: Using his ultimate, Martichoras becomes CC immune and untargetable as he soars into the air. He starts raining down 12 bursts of damaging toxins over 3 seconds. Each time an enemy is hit with a burst, their Physical Protections are reduced.
