This week’s Divine Light 4.12 Patch Notes is quite a small patch, so I will try to keep this fairly short. Click here if you haven’t seen the 4.12 Official Patch Notes yet.
The next patch, 4.13, is the Mid-Season patch and is going to be massive, live from Dreamhack (Valencia) with Hinduman and PonPon. Hinduman teased the next Patch Notes show is going to be at least 1 hour and 30 mins long, similar in length to the first Season 4 Patch, so prepare yourselves for a huge patch in 2 weeks time! The Odyssey 2018 T5 skin will also be announced at Dreamhack, so voting will be happening very soon! Check out my Odyssey 2018 T5 Skin post here for any other information.
Changes to the Adventure: Trials of King Hercules first. This adventure seems to be staying around for a bit longer, so there’s still time to go on an expedition for some Hydra heads… I mean Scales.
The Blessing of Might will now give 40% damage increase instead of 20% and the Blessing of Protection will now give 40% damage reduction instead of 20%, so if you’re still struggling to kill the Hydra this should help you out a lot. Here’s my Trials of King Hercules post if you need any information.
There have been quite a few skins this patch considering the Patch Notes show only lasted 25 mins.
I love the Venus Aphrodite skin so much. The dark hair and the green colour scheme for her design and ability effects is really different which I really like. It appears this skin is related to Hand of the Gods (Smite Tactics) and sounds like you’ll only be able to get hold of it through buying a HotG bundle like the Enyo Bellona skin… VVGT.
*Edit (8/7/17): This skin is now available for purchase as part of the Hand of the Gods Venus Competitor’s Pack. It is on sale at 25% off for a limited time, currently costing $14.99 (about £11.50). As much as I want the skin, I don’t think I’ll be getting it…
Beamy Chibi is next… and wow this skin is pretty great. At first I wasn’t too sure on the design, but the Voice Pack won me over. His ultimate screams “BYE” as you fire it… need I say any more? The laugh is great too, mimicking Ra’s standard laugh with a little chuckle at the end. I must say, I’m not really a fan of Hi-Rez’s VP designer, Tina’s, Voice Packs as they are normally too cheesy for me, but this one is great.
Izanami has a new T2 (250 gems) skin, Hou Yi has a T3 (400 gems) skin and Ares has a Team Elevate skin which comes in a bundle with an Elevate Ward.
- Artemis has had her health per level increased and a mana reduction scaling from 70-90 to 50-70 on her Suppress the Insolent (ability 3).
- Athena’s passive (Reach) now has 15% magical scaling instead of 5%.
- Kumbhakarna has had a mana reduction on his Mesmerize scaling from 70-90 to 50-70.
- Tyr’s Power Cleave has had a mana reduction scaling from 50-70 to 50 at all ranks.
- He Bo’s animation for Water Cannon has been reduced by half so he can now cast another ability afterwards sooner.
From Friday June 30th – Tuesday July 4th, earn Double Everything (worshipers, experience and favour) to celebrate Independence Day.
Speaking of Independence Day, the Independence Chest is on sale right now where you can get your hands on the new Lady Liberty Nox skin. It’s available for the next 4 weeks so there’s plenty of time to roll!
The God pack is also still 33% off, so if you’re into the game then now could be a good time to pick it up and increase your God pool.
