Update 10.1 for SMITE is now available on all platforms. This massive update not only brings the fiery Surtr to the game but also introduces the new Shard Relics.

According to Titan Forge Games, Shard Relics give players buffs for a short time that can potentially lead to power plays. These things are free at Level 1 and can be upgraded to any Relic at Level 12.

There are two Shard Relics in Update 10.1 that stand out. The first one is the Wing Shard, which provides players with a 15% increase in movement speed and a whopping 40% increase in attack speed for the next three seconds. While it has a two-minute cooldown, activating this at the right time could give players the opportunity to wipe every enemy god on the screen.

The Horn Shard is another Shard Relic that players might want to use. It reduces the cooldowns of all non-ultimate abilities by 0.5 seconds (every second) for the next three seconds. This is pretty huge, especially for those who use gods that rely on ability spams more than anything.

SMITE’s latest content patch has removed a number of items from the game as well. They are:

  • Celestial Legion Helm
  • Jade Emperor’s Crown
  • Tyrannical Plate Helm
  • Shifter’s Shield
  • Void Shield
  • Runic Shield
  • Ancile
  • Void Stone
  • Stone of Fal
  • Ring of Hecate
  • Book of the Dead
  • Stone Cutting Sword
  • Blackthorn Hammer
  • The Sledge
  • Bulwark of Hope
  • Hide of the Urchin
  • Witchblade
  • Hide of the Nemean Lion
  • Ichaival
  • Shadowsteel Shuriken
  • Many T2 Items have also been removed along with their connected T3’s

The reason for their removal is that the company has added new items to SMITE, which provide better improvements to the wielder. For instance, the new Cyclopean Ring was introduced to replace the Ring of Hecate. It provides 80 Magical Power, 25% attack speed, and 10% cooldown reduction. What’s cool about this ring is that it empowers the player’s next basic attack to deal bonus magic damage equal to 8% of the enemy god’s max HP.

Here are the other interesting new items:

Tablet of Destinies

  • 2,650g
  • +90 Magical Power
  • +150 Health
  • +300 Mana
  • PASSIVE: Your next successful damaging ability on an enemy god grants a stack of Wisdom.

You may only gain one stack every 2s, and can only gain stacks once per God per ability hit. Max 50 stacks.
Bladed Boomerang
  • In Hidden Dagger tree building from Short Sword
  • 2,600g
  • +40 Physical Power
  • +15% Attack Speed

The full list of items can be found on the official site.
