Bacchus, the God of wine, arrives to SMITE
Hi-Rez has announced the arrival of Bacchus, the God of wine to SMITE. Bacchus is a melee magic tank, whose skills are related to drink and get drunk.
Bacchus has a passive skill known as the ‘Drunk-o-meter’ which allows him to gain power and receive less magical damage. His first ability; Chug, allows him to gradually fill his Drunk-o-meter, whilst giving him a physical buff. His other regular skills such as Belly Flop and Belch of the Gods, cause damage but can cause additional effects if he is tipsy too!
His 'ultimate' is known as Intoxicate, which as the name suggests, intoxicates all nearby enemies and causes a slow effect. He can also gain physical power because of his irritation due to the loss of his precious wine!
