Smite – Xian Tian’s Mountain

Smite – Xian Tian’s Mountain

What is Xian Tian’s Mountain

Xian Tian’s Mountain is the latest PvE (player versus environment) game mode. At its core, it is an arena-like horde/wave survival way of playing Smite. As of a couple of days ago it’s available to all players, and not just to ones playing on a test server.

New Battleground

Like all other game modes in Smite, this one too has its own map/battleground. This time, we’ve got a very interesting setup. The main playing space is an open, circle shaped field with headless Chinese guardian overseeing all battles. He’s placed in a rock-like throne above the battlefield. I must say that he heavily reminded me of some kind of evil host from ‘The Hunger Games’ as it seems he’s got all the power.

Game mode rules

Ever growing pool of game modes

Currently, there are 2 quests to be completed about this game mode. The easier one is to get to the round 5 and upon completing it for the first time players will be granted a 2017 Odyssey Chest. The other reward is a ‘Xian Tian’s Mountain’ Avatar which will be awarded to all participants who reach 25th wave.

Before the start of the game, like in most other game modes, players choose a god to fight with.  Xian Tian’s Mountain being the PvE game mode makes it 1 human team (consisting of 5 real life players) face against A.I. team that is randomized at the start of each round/wave. There are 15 different A.I. setups currently.

At the very start of the game, the players will be given 7500 gold to spend on items of their desire.  Their level will be set to 13 (for me that’s the most important level in the game as it allows a lot of different skill leveling combinations). Everyone will also have 2 relics to choose.

Cupid is love, Cupid is life

When a round ends, all the cooldowns will be reset (both skill and relics cooldowns). The HP and Mana will be at 100% and all fallen teammates will be revived. Every consecutive round will be a bit harder compared to the last round. The foes will hit harder and will be tougher to bring down.

My thoughts

One of the biggest things Smite has in its favor when compared to other MOBA’s is the game mode variety. Xian Tian’s Mountain it the great addition to this collection. In my eyes, this is one of the best updates since beta. The amount of fun one can have when teamed up with friends really surprised my positively. If only Hi-Rez did something this good with items/gods balancing…
