SMITE presents its new hero, Achilles, the Hero of the Trojan War!
His passive skill, Gift of the Gods gives you a tactical option; either you choose to wear Armor which give him extra Health and Protection, or you can choose not to and get bonus Movement Speed and Physical Power Armored Bonus. In offense, you can use the Shield of Achilles which allow him to cut through his opponents with the edge of his shield, damaging and stunning them in the process and in when defending, his Combat Dodge allows him to avoid enemy attacks and launch a swift counterattack; a successful hit allows for an extra use of this ability before it goes on cooldown. Radiant Glory gives Achilles bonus Physical Power, Protections, and Crowd Control Reduction for 6 seconds and while active it allows for self healing whenever he hits opponents with his abilities.Finally, Fatal Strike is a massive damage dealer as Achilles dashes forward, passes through minions and stops to hit the first God he encounters dealing damage to all of them in the process. If his health is below 33% he Executes them all and if by using Execute he hits a God, he can use it again for 5 times!
Achilles can be a game-changer when used properly. For more details including patch 5.3 notes, please visit the Official Site
