Smite has a new goddess, and it’s the victory incarnate herself — Nike, the winged warrior. The Goddess of Victory has always been favored by many even the great god Zeus. Without her, failure is ensured, and obscurity is absolute. So now, she has finally taken the field and will fight alongside the Greek gods and goddesses of war to make sure that success shall prevail.
Passive: To Victory!
Nike sets three goals for her team that when achieved will increase their strength. Upon completing each goal, her team will gain a Laurel that will cause power and movement speed increase. Laurel can increase up to 3 times.
1st Ability: Rend
Nike slams the ground twice which sends out fissures that deals damage. If a target has been hit twice, the target loses protections for 5 seconds. If her 2nd ability is activated during this skill, this ability gains an additional attack. And if the target is hit three times, the target will be disarmed.
2nd Ability: Plan of Action
Plan of Action is a Stim ability which both has a passive effect and active. Its passive effect lets Nike gain HP5. It’s active, on the other hand, allows Nike to gain bonus damage and a special effect.
3rd Ability: Valiant Leap
Nike leaps into the air then crashed down at a location, dealing damage upon her landing and knocking up her enemies. If her 2nd skill is activated, Nike travels to the area faster.
Ultimate: Sentinel of Zeus
Upon activation, Nike transforms into an armored sentinel and sends out a shockwave that causes damage and slows enemies around her. In this form, Nike gains 40% of her max health as a shield.
If her 2nd ability, Nike earns 60% of her max health as a shield and applies a 60% slow.
Nike is the latest hero to add to Smite’s roster of gods and goddesses. She was officially released in the Patch last week, December 6. She is a Warrior-type of character who works high in defense and has a skill kit for crowd control.
