General

  • Hel has had quite a history in Smite. At times she was unbeatable, and at other times she was hardly noticed. Balancing her has always been a challenge, mostly due to her massive AoE healing. The series of changes to her in 4.1 are aimed at a few things. Her AoE healing is being reduced, and more emphasis is being place on her skills shots. Additionally, her base stats and clear abilities have been adjusted to make her a bit safer in the laning phase, giving her much needed consistency.
  • Increased Base Health from 345 -> 380.

Decay (Restoration) Decay (Restoration)

  • Light Ally Heal: 60/90/120/150/180 +30%.
  • Light Self Heal: 60/90/120/150/180 +30%.

Hinder (Cleanse) Hinder (Cleanse)

  • (Light Stance) CC Immunity increased from 1.25s -> 1.5s.

General

  • When looking at Hel, we wanted to focus on her utility instead of adjusting her raw damage or healing potential. Specifically, Cleanse was difficult to use properly at low ranks and left players guessing as to when their immunity would take effect. By making this a flat value Hel players will have more consistent tools to defend themselves as well as save allies earlier.
