Cthulu is the first of the Old Ones to arrive to Smite, and he’s a Guardian. He’ll exist to support the team, attempting to serve as the individual who hurries to the frontline to protect his colleagues, trying to set up the best chances for the more damage-based heroes to achieve a team clean. What are his abilities, and how do they work in the game?
These are the preliminary numbers connected to Cthulu’sabilities These will likely change in future updates and revamps of Smite, however these are the beginning numbers to give you a concept of how Cthulu runs in thegame Each ability adds a stack of torture, possibly triggering them to have Madness.
- Passive: Victim on Worry
- Cthulhu breaks down the psychological perseverance of enemy gods, using stacks of Torment with abilities and the final hit of his basic attack chain. On reaching 4 stacks of Torment, enemies are affected by Madness. Furthermore, Cthulhu gains Wonderful Power per neighboring enemy god with Madness.
- Madness Period: 20 s.
- Wonderful Power: 25 per stack
Cthulu’s passive ability adds a new effect to the game called Madness. It does not cause any extra impacts to the enemy, however it will with Cthulu’s first ability, Peace Of Mind Break. If enemy goes are not focusing when they receive this effect, they might have more unfavorable abilities taking place to them than they preliminary plan. Madness lasts for 20 seconds, which implies those who are fighting against Cthulu in a lane will likely need to end up being familiar with it.
- Ability 1: Peace Of Mind Break
- Cthulhu sends out out a frightening blast of energy, dealing damage to all enemies hit and lowering their Attack Speed. Enemies hit by this ability also do reduced damage to Cthulhu for sixes. This ability uses 1 stack of Torment, 2 if the enemy hit is facing Cthulhu or Worries them instead if they are affected with Madness. Successfully taking in Madness completely increases the base mitigation of this ability.

- Worry Period: 1.5 s
- Damage Mitigation: 20 percent
- Cooldown: 10

Peace of mind Break will likely end up being Cthulu’s bread and butter ability to regularly use in lane to press up against otherenemies With it, Cthulu can slow the attack speed of enemy Gods, making it harder for them to fight against crowds of minions or to fight back against an unwary gank from the jungle. It’s an exceptional way to open an encounter, and Cthulu can regularly use during the laning phase to give his lane partner time to stack minions and levelup The ability fires in front of Cthulu in a cone.
- Ability 2: The Mire
- Cthulhu summons a portal creating a slowing field of eldritch mire at the targetlocation While Cthulhu channels, The Mire continues to grow as the portal fires out 2 masses of corruption that hit and damage all enemies in the field. The first shot also Slows enemies while the second Roots them, both hits using 1 stack of Torment. Cancelling the ability early stops The Mire from growing or the portal from firing extra shots.
- Damage per shot: 50/95/140/185/230 (+30 percent of your wonderful power)
- Slow: 10 percent
- Corruption Slow: 35 percent
- Corruption Slow/Root Period: ones
- Mire Period: threes after ability cancel/end
- Cooldown: 18/17/16/15/14
- Cost: 50/55/60/65/70
When a Cthulu player wishes to create the ideal trap for an inbound jungle partner, The Mire ability is perfect to create a field to slow down enemies and avoid them from advancing. Cthulu is somewhat exposed and susceptible since while using this ability, he has to wait in a single position and channel it. It will not fire all of its potential shots if The Mire is not fully formed. The second shot in this ability fires out a root, offering a jungle partner or ganking ally an ideal chance to jump on them.
- Ability 3: Hurrying Terror
- Cthulhu produces 2 twisting projectiles at his sides as he unfurls his wings and charges forwards, damaging, spectacular and knocking away enemies*it The projectiles follow at a somewhat slower pace however take a trip even more, damaging enemies. Enemies hit by Cthulhu or the projectiles gain 1 stack of Torment.
- Damage: 80/120/160/200/240 (+40 percent of your wonderful power)
- Stun Period: 0.4 s
- Projectile Damage: 50/80/110/140/170 (+20 percent of your wonderful power)
- Cooldown: 16
- Cost: 60/65/70/75/80
A Cthulu player who has actually been building securities and has full use of their damage mitigation from the first ability, Peace of mind Break, can use Hurrying Terror as a way to charge theenemy A set of projectiles form on the side of Cthulu as he hurries forward, knocking back and spectacular any Gods he strikes. While the stun just lasts for 0.4 seconds, the ability damages twice, first with the hit from Cthulu and then from the projectiles. Enemy Gods with no way to heal themselves may find they will have trouble recuperating from this, specifically from a team interacting with a Cthulu player who can use this to basically ridicule everybody to their location, disregarding the damage-based Gods as they rise into a team fight.
- Ultimate: Descend Into Insanity
- Cthulhu exposes his true kind as he plunges the battlefield into R’lyeh while any enemies captured neighboring are harmed. In this kind Cthulhu gains access to newabilities Enemies near Cthulhu gain stacks of Torment, increasing in pace if they are facing him. Enemies also suffer the debuff impacts of Peace of mind Break, triggering them to deal less damage to Cthulhu.
- Damage: 160/205/250/295/340 (+50% of your wonderful power)
- Max Health: 30%
- Period: 12/13/14/15/16 s
- Debuff Radius: 50
- Damage Mitigation during Introduction: 80%
- Cooldown: 100

When this ability occurs, Cthulu ends up being an enormous kind of itself, ending up being comparable to a skycrapper-sized God. The ultimate also changes all of his abilities, making his first ability a swiping attack, his second a thrown area-of-effect attack, and his 3rd an ally heal, motion speed, and power enthusiast. It will harm Cthulu for a small amount, however it’s most likely worth it to use it as a way to engage in a full-on team fight.
Cthulu is a game- changer for veterans of Smite and arrives on June 16.
