SMITE ‘The Ferryman’ Update 10.7: Full Patch Notes Listed

There are plenty of ways to die in SMITE, but there’s one guy you don’t want to meet on the shores of Styx. Charon The Ferryman is the latest to join SMITE’s roster. While the son of Nyx has taken on a decidedly more skeletal frame, don’t judge him for his lack of muscles. He’s still quite capable of taking you down.

Balance Live with 10.7 Update – July 11

Game Modes

The dream becomes reality as the Titans break their shackles and take to the battlefield to make their divine presence known. Unfortunately with their inevitable demise, the rewards obtained for besting these behemoths are slightly too strong and too easily awarded. By making the Gold and XP local, players will need to actively choose whether to forgo the kill rewards, choosing to pressure elsewhere on the map, or to engage in a larger brawl and reap the benefits, albeit shared now.

  • Conquest
    • Unleashed Titans
      • The Gold and XP rewards for defeating an Unleashed Titan are now only provided locally instead of globally

While the team is happy with the introduction of Soul Surges as a seasonal feature, we want to continue finding the best place for them in all of our game modes. The potency of the zone effect was slightly too strong with how long they could persist for and the Spirit minions continue to be slightly more of a nuisance than we would like.

  • Soul Surges
    • The Movement speed buff provided for being within a Soul Surge has been decreased from 15% to 10%
    • Decreased Soul Surge Spirit Movement Speed from 375 to 275
    • Decreased Soul Surge Spirit Base HP from 265 to 180



The latest seasonal balance pass included a large hit on Protections that items provide and we wanted to take some time to evaluate which items and gods needed subsequent shifts. Prophetic Cloak has been a strong item since its release and while we did not want to directly buff it, the Protection thresholds do not match where we would expect them to be obtained during matches. We will continue to assess these new thresholds to see if the item as a whole needs further changes.

  • Decreased the first Protection threshold from 400 to 325
  • Decreased the second Protection threshold from 600 to 525


The recent changes to the Max stack count on Silverbranch Bow were to help normalize it across the Physical gods that might want to pick it up. Allowing it to be valuable for characters that might not have Attack Speed buffs in their kit and just wanted to itemize into that stat path. We have seen the community sentiment lean towards the more selective prioritization of this item instead and brought back the cap to a more reasonable number. We will continue to monitor if the bonus power provided by the stacks is within an acceptable range.

  • Increased Max Stacks from 20 to 40


Toxic Blade is a niche item that has yet to find its place. The stats that it provides have strong value but never seems to fit the right builds in the meta. Before making any larger changes we wanted to find the best price for the utility it provides.

  • Decreased Cost from 2400 to 2300
  • Decreased max stacks from 4 to 3
  • Increased Anti-Heal debuff from 15% to 20%
  • Increased Attack Speed buff and debuff from 5% to 7%


Tank proc items are one of the main topics this season and while Bonus balance had a few nerfs, Pridwen was excluded on that list. We wanted a bit more time to see how well the data matched the sentiment to get a nerf for the more damage oriented Glyph specifically.

  • Decreased explosion damage from 75% to 65% of total Protections from items and abilities


Mages have been a large topic amongst the playerbase and understandably so. This year has seen mages overall be under-prioritized and generally under-performing. The latest seasonal changes were also seen to be a larger nerf for Magical users vs Physical who have more impactful basic attacks to fill the downtime between ability casts during fights. We considered the best way to buff Mages as a class and decided that the Class Bonus was by far the simplest and cleanest way to do so. Providing a small amount of power on several items has the risk of making certain items more necessary to build vs others. Just buffing all Tier 3 items goes against why we did the damage changes in the first place and also does not address the curve over time as smoothly as a per level option. An extra 20 Magical Power over the course of the game should help Mages reach a more balanced level compared to Hunters specifically across the duration of a match.


  • Increased the Mage Class Bonus Magical Power Scaling per Level from 1 to 2
    • This provides 20 extra magical power at level 20


The Shining Light has been hesitant to charge into battle recently, opting out of the battlegrounds that have tended to prefer the more ability-damage focused Warriors. This push in her charging capabilities should help Amaterasu’s clear be slightly less all-in focused on her Heavenly Reflection and provide her more flexibility.


  • Increased Base damage from 60/120/180/240/300 to 80/135/190/245/300
  • Decreased Cooldown from 16s to 15s


Usually dominant in the early-mid game fights, this cat tends to get a bit lazy and fall off as the day gets older and the match continues to get longer. A little pick me up was needed to give Bastet the pep in her step to get her pouncing into the late-game.


  • Increased Physical Power Scaling from 25% to 27.5% per tick
  • Decreased Cooldown from 11s to 10s


Inspired by the return of the Ferryman, the good boy of the Underworld wants to get back in the fray. Cerberus has always packed the punch needed to send the gods howling but not necessarily as often as he might like.


  • Decreased Cooldown from 13s to 13/12.5/12/11.5/11s


  • Decreased Cooldown from 15s to 14s


While Mages as a whole have been slightly underperforming, this drummer has been fighting even harder to be heard. The Power Scaling on Raijin’s primary damaging ability might seem decent already but as it takes both time and effort to hit accurately, the reward was not quite up to the beat.


  • Increased Magical Power Scaling from 25% to 30% per hit


There are two gods on the list that weren’t quite going to make it but the community sentiment was clear that the seasonal changes warranted shifts for these two. Tiamat is the first with a passive that utilizes Power to obtain mitigations, specifically in the Ground stance. The seemingly small change listed has heavy implications and shifts a large amount of power away from being necessary in her item build. Tiamat, while still seen in the upper echelons of play, is actually not performing very well across all skill levels and modes and will be monitored for additional buffs if necessary.


  • Increased Scale Mitigation earned from Magical Power from 5% to 6%
    • This means Tiamat requires 100 less Magical Power to reach the cap
  • Fixed description to clarify cap of 30%
    • Was previously listed as 25% but working as 30%


While Hunters are generally performing well that does not ring quite as true for the ability hunters overall. Ullr is the pinnacle of this archetype and as such… is performing quite poorly. Whenever Ullr gains a fraction too much damage, he gains heavy notoriety and is quickly decried for nerfs. The change for his Ultimate is a large one but is mostly utility focused and will hopefully shore up his weaknesses slightly rather than exacerbate his strengths.


  • Increased Physical Power Scaling from 90% to 100%


  • Ullr now gains half of the stat bonuses when in the opposite stance


The second of the two mage shifts, Olorun has a passive that also requires Power to obtain a different stat, this time Critical Hit Chance. As the total Power in item builds went down, this also meant that Olorun’s passive was just that much harder to obtain. This change to Touch of Fate is a pretty big deal but it keeps one of the goals intact of the simple to understand Power conversion. Previously it was 1:10 and now it will continue as 2:10, hopefully allowing Olorun players, allies and enemies an easy way of understanding his current Crit Chance levels. Now with this heavy change and allowing Olorun to Critically hit more often and sooner, we wanted to shift the damage he will be doing downwards to be more inline.


  • Initial Threshold decreased from 150 Power to 100 Power
  • Increased base Critical Hit Chance from 15% to 20%
  • Increased conversion from 1% to 2% per 10 Magical Power from items
  • Decreased Critical Strike Damage from 1.5x to 1.3x


Achilles is a powerhouse in the right hands and gained more protection for his heels than was warranted. Nerfs to his passive were needed to allow him to be more inline with other Warriors, especially when considering free stats… the ones that got nerfed across the board!


  • Decreased Protection bonus per level from 2 to 1.5
  • Decreased Physical Power bonus per level from 2 to 1.5


Hachiman’s recent Passive shift has definitely brought him into the spotlight and while he has been hit once, it was clear the nerf-bat did not strike hard enough. Round two has come around, this time aiming specifically at the new stat provided, cutting the base it provides in half.


  • Decreased base Attack Speed gained per stack from 2% to 1%


Ravana is an interesting case as he was performing quite low across the board but the recent Passive Shield buff and meta changes have almost completely flipped his stats. This semi-revert is just the first place we want to target and with the item changes in tow, we will be watching the Demon King closely.


  • Decreased Health Shield gained per stack from 9% to 8% of Ravana’s max HP


Tyr was bringing down the law a little too often, especially with his new-found strength. He is learning to keep his temper in check and has promised to be a little less judgmental.


  • Increased Cooldown from 90/85/80/75/70s to 90s at all ranks
