Smite Bonus Update 8.6 – Full Patch Notes

Hi-Rez Studios have made certain adjustments in the latest update to make sure that the overall power of characters is in line with more focused choices.

The changes affect certain items in-game such as Soul Gem, Charon’s Coin, and Stone of Gaia. Apart from this, Morgan Le Fay has received some nerfs to make the character more manageable. The last update increased her overall damage so her Sigil Mastery cooldown has been increased by 2 seconds.

A similar treatment has been given to more Gods like Persephone, King Arthur, and others. Some bugs related to certain characters like Sol has also been fixed to provide less clunky visuals and preserve the clunk-free gameplay too.
