Smite is back with a new god to add to their selection of mythological figures, the goddess Morrigan also known as The Phantom Queen. Let’s take a minute to more about this powerful Celtic goddess.

 

The Celts once knew of the myth about the Three Goddesses, progenitors of war, death, and sovereignty. They took care of Eire, champions for armored soldiers, and served as guides for the deceased. One day, though, they merged as one. Nobody knows what bound them together. Some said it was for the greater good, while the others said it serves a darker purpose. Whatever it is, they are now one.

She is many Goddesses with many forms. She takes the shape of a lurid seductress, sometimes an old hag, and a black crow. But most feared her as the washer in the river, those who witnessed her washing their bloody armor prophecies a bloody end. Subtle yet manipulative, no war escapes Morrigan notice. There is no dying breath she did not collect. Who knows, maybe Morrigan, after all, started the war between the gods for she controls fate.

Abilities

Passive – Doomsayer

The Morrigan creates a phantom version of herself, becoming stealth and gaining an increase in movement speed. The Phantom runs to the targeted area and will die if it takes any damage. However, if Morrigan attacks or takes damage, her true self will be revealed, and she will lose her bonus speed.

4th Ability – Changeling

This unique ability allows Morrigan to select a god from the current match and becomes an exact copy of them including all their stats and abilities. In the form she chooses, Morrigan may use all skills although she retains her relics and cannot use any of her consumables.
