Hi-Rez has announced the sixtieth god to join the SMITE pantheon. Ao Kuang, the Dragon God, enters as a melee fighter with an additional ability to summon six dragons to his side. Hi-Rez has released a new trailer to give the lore behind Ao Kuang and a preview of his in-game abilities. Check it out!
With his King of the Eastern Seas ability, Ao Kuang selects a single target in melee range and grabs them, dealing damage and knocking them up into the air. If the target is under the health threshold, Ao Kuang will instead reveal his true form, becoming a Dragon and executing them. After transforming Ao Kuang remains in the air, and may then pick a new location to land, dealing damage to enemies within range 20, and fully recharging his passive ability, King’s Sword.
