❝ Harness the light of the heavens and conquer all in your path with a storm of arrows. ❞

Smite just released a new update today and new playable god has been released with it as well. The new god is named Ishtar. She is known as the Goddess of Love and War. Her mythology is from Babylonian. Because she is a hunter, her type is physical and ranged. Her pros are Medium Area Damage and High Attack Speed. The difficulty of playing her is average. Her personality is known as brave and cunning, as well as caring and spiteful.

You can read some of her lore from here. I haven't played with her much, however I have tried a few games. I'm liking her playstyle so far. But I'm still getting used to her. I have been waiting for a new hunter type god for ages. (Hunter is one of my favourite types to play) I can say that I'm definitely satisfied with Ishtar. Her playstyle is fun, she is pretty strong and has an amazing design as well. Here are some stunning photos of her from the trailer:

"Now, Ishtar has once again descended from the heavens — in search of what, none know. But woe betide any who seek to stand between the Queen of Heaven and that which she desires..."

An actual icon 🤩 She is so pretty! Smite really out did themselves with her design. The gold looks so stunning on her.

As you can see, she's super majestic. I love the desert vibe and colours from the trailer. I recommend checking the vid out as well! The video is at the bottom of this post. The other guy in this image is Giglamesh, another playable god in smite. They're involved in each other's stories quite a bit.

These are all of her abilities. I like how she has a dash ability, because it can be used to escape from a battle or to run up to someone and finish them off. Her ult is also very satisfying to use.
These images are showcases of what her abilities actually look like in action:

One of which is an explosive arrow, the other is spread shot, useful for hitting minions. The last is a snipe shot which allows you to hit enemies long range.

Next Ability:

This is her second ability, it looks super cool, a big blaze of fire just comes from the sky. Super straight forward to use, it just does damage to enemies. You can even "mesmerize" enemies if they are hit with more than one strike. This is useful for crowd control, similar to a stun.

image.pngThis is her third ability, the dash

If you use the dash to hit an enemy, she will stop and root them, then backflip off them. It looks super cool in action. When she's in the air, she fires her bow, dealing damage in an area around the affected God.

This is her ultimate. When used, 5 blades are thrown, each sword damages and cripples enemies. When clicked again within the time frame they fly back to you. This has a chance to stun the enemies if they get hit twice with the ability. Stuns are always useful in battle. I'm glad they added something like this in her kit.

"Ishtar, Queen of Heaven and mistress of love and war, is a goddess of many and diverse facets. A dispenser of divine justice, she strikes down all those who would dare defy the gods, even as she zealously protects those who worship her."

Hope you enjoyed reading about Ishtar, have a good day everyone! 😊 ✨

That goddess is quite interesting. I haven't played Smite for a long time, I don't feel like playing it alone either(I'd rather play it in a team) however it doesn't look like a bad game to me. I remember I was playing League Of Legends when Smite came out, basically it was a 3rd person MOBA that really seemed innovative. Unfortunately I didn't get to play it in its heyday, what do you think of this game, is it worth it nowadays?

I think it's worth it. Quite a lot of people play still. I've also never spent any money on this game, because there's not really a need to. It's not the best MOBA out there, but it's definitely not the worst. I got into it because my friends played it and recommended it to me. I find these type of games more fun if you have some friends to play with.

The variety of playable characters is really nice, it's fun trying different playstyles and roles. There's a character out there for everyone. I like the many different game modes there are as well. (The extra mode that refreshes daily is usually fun.)

Some downsides with this game is sometimes it can be laggy because of the bad servers. When you start out it can be a bit confusing because there's a lot of build items and different abilities. Some gods might be harder to play than others. But it's easy to find guides online. I recommend starting out with area game mode (most simple mode) to get the hang of characters before doing the complex modes. There can also be some toxic players who get matched up with you. I've had numerous encounters. But I also made some nice friends from this game as well.

It's interesting that Smite uses the name of real Gods.
Ishtar/Innana and Gilgamesh wikipedia articles.

Yes, all the characters in smite are based off real gods and their mythology. Very interesting to learn and play with them!
