SMITE Scylla Patch Notes as Long as Her Tentacles
HiRez Studios has released the SMITE patch notes to coincide with the launch of Scylla, Horror of the Deep. The list is lengthy and detailed as the game nears official release later this month.
Notable highlights include massive work on the spectator system to not only improve performance and functionality, but actual changes to some of the map designs to improve overhead views of certain twisted jungle spots on the Conquest map. Ward costs have also been lessened while given a home security alarm to raise awareness when enemies pass through their field of vision. And the entire item tree has been rebuilt into a more cohesive pathing system, though many items including the infamous Fatalis have been removed pending further testing.
As far as Scylla goes, her kit can be seen below:
