Fafnir's Lore

Smite God Fafnir There is no creature, living nor dead, more greedy, more vile than a dwarf. In the frozen reaches of Asgaard, beneath her mighty stone peaks, do they dwell, ever hammering to forge more gold jewelry, to carve more gleaming gems, to breathe curses into their finery.

Among these wretched kin is Fafnir, son of Hreidmar, with a swollen smithing arm and a ravenous hunger for violence, both of which are eclipsed by his avarice.

Once Spring, Odin, Loki, and Honir visited Hreidmar's realm, bearing an otter pelt they'd skinned on their journey. Horrified, Hreidmar entombed the Aesir, for the otter was, in truth, his third son. Freedom would not be theirs until Loki returned with the hide filled with gold. Refusing to be outdone, the Trickster God, stuffed the pelt to bursting with the cursed treasure of Andvarri. Hreidmar, unaware of the maligned hoard, greedily exchanged the Aesir for the wealth. That night, curling his powerful arm, Fafnir strangled his father and vanished into the frosted night with the cursed gold.

And so it was that madness took him. Paranoid his last brother would steal the treasure, Fafnir guarded it jealously while the curse whispered in his ear. Slowly, surely, twisted he became, scaled and nightmarish. His breath turned to poison, his maw, fanged, his demeanor, fouler. A dragon, he became. The very symbol of greed.

For centuries Fafnir kept no company, but the War of the Gods grows ever closer, and the clink of coin runs rampant; a bulging sack on the belt of every warrior. He craves every piece, and spares no thought to shed blood for the glittering gold.

So... I finally got to play Fafnir today.

I feel he is a little underwhelming, but I love his kit and character design!

I think he could do with a buff to his underhand tactics though. Either a slightly longer disarm OR a slightly wider cone. I just feel the disarm is too short considering how small the cone is, but maybe I'm just bad.

Also he needs to be able to hurt Kaldr with dragonbreath, and it would be nice if the hammer toss would consider Kaldr to be a god so it could stun him.

What's other people's thoughts?

he can harm Kaldr, The Winter Wolf, kills him in a sec.

sigh, when will hirez realise that Skadi is already in an underpowered state right now...

Hmmm... Didn't seem like dragonbreath was doing any damage to Kaldr while I was playing today (Xbox 3.10). Maybe I'm mistaken, but I'll have to test. I know it was an issue on pc 3.10.
I don't think it should hurt him every tick, but once a second during dragonbreath would seem fair to me.


And I wouldn't exactly say having a damaging ability damage Kaldr is necessarily a nerf to Skadi.

I honestly think having the hammer consider Kaldr a god would not be fair. A longer disarm would be nice, though.

Imo the most balanced and cool god HiRez has released in a while.

He is cool. His leap is super weird, though. Cone shape target.
