Celtic Hero Cu Chulainn Joins SMITE

By Jeff Francis
SMITE adds Cu Chulainn

Another figure from Celtic lore is joining SMITE. The free mmo of warring gods features a heavy list of deities and heroes from Greek, Egyptian, Viking, and Mayan mythology, but figures from other pantheons have been regularly added over time. Hi-Rez Studios have announced the new playable SMITE Cu Chulainn hero's addition to the game.

SMITE Cu Chulainn

The playable SMITE Cu Chulainn character is a figure from Celtic mythology. He is believed to be an incarnation of the god Lugh, who is also his father. His mother, Deichtine, is mortal though. Cu Chulainn is often called the Hound of Ulster after he killed Culann's guard dog and then offered to take his place. Cu Chulainn was known for his incredible battle fury, during which he would become a fierce monster who recognized neither friend nor foe.

The abilities of the new SMITE Cu Chulainn character are:

Berserk (Passive): Cu Chulainn’s Mana Bar functions differently than other gods. His Mana is capped at 100 and only regenerates up to 25 Mana. Hitting Abilities, Basic Attacks, or allies and himself taking damage cause Cu Chulainn to gain Mana. After being above 85 Mana for 3 seconds, he goes Berserk. While Berserk, Cu Chulainn gains Power and Maximum Health and his Abilities change.

Barbed Spear / Ground Slam: Cu Chulainn thrusts his spear forward, damaging all enemies in front of him and stunning less powerful minions. Successfully hitting an enemy with this ability restores 6 Mana(to a max of 18). Barbs from his spear stick in opponents and reduce their Healing taken for 4s. In his Berserk Form, Cu Chulainn instead slams his massive arms down, damaging and rooting all Enemies in front of him

Vent Anger: Cu Chulainn vents his anger as superheated steam, increasing his Movement Speed and draining his Ferocity. Every .5s while in this state, all enemies within range are damaged by the heat.

Salmon’s Leap / Furious Charge: Cu Chulainn vaults over his spear, leaping to a target location and slamming it down to damage enemies around and in front of him. Successfully hitting an enemy with this Ability restores 6 Ferocity (to a max of 18). In his Berserk Form, Cu Chulainn instead charges forward, damaging and driving all enemies back with him.

Spear of Mortal Pain / War Cry: Cu Chulainn swings his spear in a circle around him, Damaging and knocking up all enemies. Successfully hitting an enemy with this Ability restores 12 Ferocity (to a max of 36).

In addition to the new playable SMITE Cu Chulainn character, the latest update for the mmo also adds new god skins, emotes, bug fixes, tweaks, and the Code of Chivalry event. You can read the latest patch notes here.
