Perhaps I’ve been going about preaching MOBAs the wrong way, or rather, I’ve been recommending the wrong ones. Alright people, forget Dota 2, League of Legends, and even Heroes of the Storm. Try Smite instead, because if Darryn can enjoy it, then anybody can! Just think of all the awesome characters you can play. Feel like playing Cupid? You can! What about Hades, god of the Underworld? He’s there! What about a headless god of Chinese mythology? That wasn’t possible… till now!

Xing Tian has been added to the Smite roster (via PC Gamer)! Here’s his video reveal. If you can’t watch for whatever reason, you can read about Xing Tian here instead.

What is this headless god capable of? Here’s a breakdown of his abilities:

Passive : Smouldering Rage

Xing Tian gains stacks of Smouldering Rage each time he hits an enemy with an ability (max 12 stacks). For each stack of Rage Xing Tian has, he gains HP5 (+3). Stacks last 18s.

Furious Roar

Xing Tian shouts from his chest with great force, 70/100/130/160/190 (+60% of his Magical Power)and reducing their Basic Attack damage by 30/35/40/45/50 for 1.5/2/2.5/3/3.5. Enemies take % of max Health as damage over time (+2.5% per second) as well. Cost: 55/60/65/70/75. Cooldown: 15/14/13/12/11s.

Hook Slam

Xing Tian first launches an attack with his axe, knocking the opponents into the air before slamming them into the ground and rooting them for 1/1.25/1.5/1.75/2s. Axe Damage:30/50/70/90/110 (+25% of his Magical Power). Slam Damage: 60/100/140/180/220 (+45% of his Magical Power). Cost: 70/75/80/85/90. Cooldown: 18s.

Sky-Cutting Axe

Xing Tian leaps forward dealing 65/85/105/125/145 (+30% of his Magical Power) damage to enemies when he lands and may leap again within 2s. While in the air, Xing Tian has increased protections (10/20/30/40/50), which are refreshed if he connects with a target. Using another ability during this time cancels the additional leap. Cost: 65/75/85/95/105. Cooldown: 14s.

Whirlwind of Rage and Steel

Xing Tian spins his axe three times in succession, dealing 50/75/100/125/150 (+50% of his Magical Power) per swing and sweeping up his enemies before throwing them. Cost: 100. Cooldown: 100/95/90/85/80s.

RAWR

Well, he certainly looks scary! I do think it would’ve been a lot cooler if he was missing his head though, instead of being equipped with that helm.

That’s just my opinion though. What do you think? Are you excited to play as the headless deity?

Defence of the Ancients? More like Defence of the cabbages! Have you seen my head? I look like a Merino Sheep on pole. NO SHANGE only SHAPPIES! :D
