Hi-Rez Announces that SMITE is Adding The Morrigan, Phantom Queen
The battlefields of SMITE are about ready to be hit with a hefty dose of Celtic power. The free mmo of battling gods has featured quite a few diverse pantheons, ranging from Egyptian to Greek to Mayan, and it's now time for Celtic deities to get into the action. During the current Hi-Rez Expo, it was announced that the new SMITE The Morrigan, Phantom Queen, playable hero will be added to the game's roster with the next patch.
The addition of the SMITE The Morrigan, Phantom Queen, playable character marks the first Celtic personality to the game. Her announcement page notes, "The lurid seductress. The wrinkled hag. The screaming crow. The washer in the river. She has been known by many forms, but just one name: The Morrigan. There is no war The Morrigan did not incite. No dying breath she did not collect. Beware, for The Morrigan controls your fate."
The powers of the SMITE The Morrigan, Phantom Queen, champion are:
Doomsayer: The third hit of The Morrigan’s hit chain will explode, dealing damage to all enemies within range and Dooming all enemies hit. Doomed enemies will take additional damage over time.
Deadly Aspects: The Morrigan summons her alternate forms to her side. When activated again, they focus their power together to damage and stun enemies in front of them.
Dark Omen: The Morrigan launches a wave of dark magic at her enemies that deals damage, deals bonus damage to minions, and applies an Omen to enemy gods for 8 seconds. Gods with an Omen will take bonus damage the next time they are hit by any damaging ability.
Confusion: The Morrigan creates a phantom of herself while becoming stealthed and increasing her Movement Speed. The phantom runs to the targeted area, deals no damage, and will die if it takes any damage. If the Morrigan attacks or takes damage, she will be revealed and lose her increased Movement Speed.
Changeling: The Morrigan selects a God from the current match and becomes a copy of that God. She copies all of their current stats and may use all of their abilities for the duration of Changeling. She retains her own Relics, and cannot use Consumables while a Changeling. The rank of The Morrigan’s abilities will transfer to the skills of the god she copies. Changeling's cooldown will be increased to match the target God's ultimate if she uses it while transformed.
The Morrigan, Phantom Queen, will be available to mmo players when the SMITE patch 3.25 goes live, which is January 10th for the PC and January 17th for consoles.
