SMITE: 10.1 Bonus Update Nerfs Jungle Speed Buff

10.1 Bonus Update
10.1 Bonus Update Titan Forge Games

Titan Forge Games is set to release a new patch for SMITE next week. The 10.1 Bonus Update is a small one, but it will implement some nerfs that could potentially lead to drastic changes, especially for junglers.

In the most recent major update, the developer added a new map to SMITE's Conquest Mode, and it turns out that junglers have become quite impactful due to different boosts they can get in the jungle.

While there are many things that can be adjusted to address this, Titan Forge Games has decided to nerf the speed buff as an initial response because it tends to be a strong contributor. So, in the 10.1 Bonus Update, the base movement speed for the jungle speed buff is reduced from 14% to 10%.

The upcoming patch will nerf some items as well. The Sundering Axe’s base current life steal is reduced from 4% to 3% on the passive. The bonus damage granted by the Bluestone Pendant is also decreased from 60 to 48.
