Battle Frost Notes: Bellona, Skins and more!


The other day, the SMITE community was given a plethora of new content and skins in the 2/18/15 patch notes. Thanks to we also uncovered a new Ares skin! Care to find out more?

To start off the notes, Hi-Rez announced a new model of Ymir featuring tons of new detail and an enhanced ice-covered mallet as his weapon. This update will go into effect for Ymir’s Standard skin, TwitchYmir, Nuclear Winter, Golden, Legendary, and Diamond skins. In addition to this, we learned that Hercules will be getting a new skin known as La Rocha, a luchador with a giant chair as his weapon. This skin features new taunts in the voice pack along with a giant pinata for his ult. Daisy Despair Scylla was also announced featuring tons of new graphics and effects for her abilities. Included in this patch is the Battle Maiden Bellona recolor along with the Gold, Legendary and Diamond skin for Awilix.

Leading up to the patch notes the official Smite twitter account was leaking these new skins for every x amount of retweets it got. One of the many skins retweeted was the Zeus Xbox skin. Despite not being covered or shown in the patch notes stream, the community has assumed that this skin will be available to all people who play the beta for Smite on Xbox One. The skin features a custom lit up shield green player 1 icon along with a green tint to the lightning bolt.

In the new patch notes, the community also got it's first confirmed look at Bellona and her abilities. Being the Roman Goddess of War, Bellona brings something new to SMITE since she is the first female warrior to appear in game. With numerous weapons at her reach, Bellona rushes into the battlefield with a thirst for blood.

  • Master of War - Passive 
    • Upon giving or receiving hits from basic attacks, Bellona gains +5 protections and +6% movement speed for 5s. (max 5 stacks). 
  • Shield Bash
    • Bellona dashes forward and bashes with her shield, dealing 80/120/160/200/240 +40% of her Physical Power as damage and slowing enemies 30% for 2s. Bellona gains 1 stack of block for each enemy god hit. Block absorbs all damage from a single basic attack and reflects 30% of the damage in an area around her. Bellona then makes basic attacks with sword and shield until out of combat, and every 3 successful basic attacks she gains another stack of block (max 3). Cooldown: 15s. Cost: 60. 
  • Bludgeon
    • Bellona summons a Hammer and spins, hitting every enemy around her for 30/60/90/120/150 +25% of her Physical Power, and then smashing forward in an overhand attack dealing 70/130/190/250/310 +60% of her Physical Power as Damage. Each enemy god hit in the spin increases the damage of the overhand attack by +30%. Bellona now makes basic attacks with her Hammer until out of combat. Every Hammer attack hits all enemies in melee range. Cooldown: 10. Cost: 60/65/70/75/80.

Enemies hit are Disarmed for 2/2.25/2.5/2.75/3s, and cannot make basic attacks. Bellona now makes basic attacks with a Scourge until out of combat, which has extended range (+4) and every third attack heals Bellona 30/50/70/90/110. Cooldown: 18s. Cost: 70/75/80/85/90. 
  • Eagle’s Rally

Bellona Card

Having a new god is pretty awesome, especially since Bellona is the first female warrior. Yet, one thing that really has the community on the edge of their seats is a recently data-mined new skin. This skin be the Mercenary Ares skin.

As you can see, the Mercenary Ares skin looks like your stereotypical badass soldier. Although he isn't being released in this patch, we can assume that he will be making his way to SMITE possibly in the mined Medusa patch.
