Thanatos's Lore

Smite God Thanatos Inevitably, all mortals must die. They cling to life with fevered desperation, for death is a cold unknown, filled with uncertainty and bleak, everlasting finality. Some accept fate with grace, others are dragged, kicking and screaming, though in truth, no mortal would go to Hades willingly. They are reaped by the nightmarish God of Death, whose grim visage strikes strange against the gleeful satisfaction he feels at performing his work. Thanatos is the very face of death.

Yet, to Thanatos, Mortals are easy prey. Their end is preordained, harvesting them but a game to pass the eons, but a God, a being beyond the mortal coil, now there is a creature Thanatos eyes with greedy longing. He despises the immortality other Gods covet. To him, it is a perversion and defiance of his very purpose.

But can a God truly die? As the Heavens clash and immortal blood spills on the Earth, Thanatos hungers to find out. War is but the preamble to death, a battlefield of souls rent from their bodies, listlessly waiting to be taken by the God of Death. A war between Gods, a war of this magnitude can mean only one thing. Thanatos is about to be very, very busy.

Hmm... caught this within the first minute. Might as well say something.

At first glance, he's OP. At second glance, he's balanced. From nerdgasm to satisfaction. Good job, Hi-Rez.

His passive + his self-lifesteal is a very interesting mechanic. You need a way to get back up health fast if someone's ****ting on you, but otherwise, simply jungling/laning will give you more health than you will most likely lose.

If there was one item that I would always reccommend on this guy, it would be Eye of Retaliation.

And also: his ult isn't OP. The threshold is quite low early levels, and at levels 1-4 I he doesn't even have a threshold.

In summary: Nice job, Hi-Rez. Just buff the 2 to make you run faster when you're facing away from an enemy, otherwise there's no escape... for either of you.

I agree with a lot of this, but I've found that every time I've seen and played as him, lanning was better for him, which I think is because his 1 is his main form of heal and only really when hitting gods? I unno, just something that I noticed.

There is a bug though - because of his character model, he can be pushed (such as from a poseidon wave) into a wall, and be stuck there. This can also occur if his ultimate times out on top of a wall. Rare, but it can happen, usually when on the edge of a wall.

I'm sure it's not just Thanatos. Hi-Rez, FIX THIS!

I actually had one game were I used his ult, I think targeted below myself, and then the screen went into the normal colors but I was still flying and I don't think I got down. I'm not sure on that last part because I had to go do something away from the comp, and when I got back we had won.

Wish they would change the threshold to 20/25/30/35/40. Makes a lot more sense.

there seem to be a bug that somehow makes his second attack do alot more damage than first and third instead of the usual lower damage but i dont know what triggers it

I haven't play him. But he reminds me of Aatrox from League. Easy to get kills, uses health to cast some abilities, some lifesteal...

I won't use him. I don't like Assassins in general.
