Izanami's Lore

Smite God Izanami As Izanami gave birth to the god of Fire, his searing skin scorched her flesh. Fearful she would die, her husband, Izanagi, the man with whom she had created the world, held her close and wept. But it was too late. So grievous were the wounds, Izanami succumbed to death.

To rescue her soul, Izanagi traveled to Yomi, the realm of the darkness and death. Through the black maze he searched, until finally he came upon her, hidden amongst the shadows. He implored her to return with him. She could not, for she had already eaten the fruit that grew in Yomi. Izanagi insisted. He would not leave her in this place. He swore it.

Izanami agreed to take her husband to see the Gods of Yomi, to implore them to free her. Meanwhile, remain in darkness, she cautioned him, for the realm of the dead was not meant for the living to see. Taken by foreboding, Izanagi lit a torch and laid eyes upon his wife. No longer the graceful, elegant beauty she once was, Izanami now appeared a rotting corpse, hollow and decayed, maggot ridden and foul. Frightened and disgusted, Izanagi broke his vow and fled.

Through the bowels of Yomi he ran, pursued by the fiend that was once his wife. Escaping the cave entrance, Izanagi rolled a boulder in place to block it. Sealed within, betrayed and cursed, consumed with wrathful anger, Izanami swore, one thousand lives would she take each day. One thousand to pay for the broken promise he made.

Since then, Izanami has kept her vow, each day reaching beyond the grave to pull souls to Yomi. But war has broken the boulder that once kept her sealed away, and Izanami has emerged, cold and lifeless, but burning with a vengeance against all that lives. One thousand souls will not be enough.

The interaction of her basic attacks was changed again.

On PTS Izanami was able to crit at any point of her basic attack, but only could apply 'On-hit' effects such as "Executioner", "Qin's Sais" etc. on the 1st target hit. Also effects of crit items could only apply on the 1st crit per basic attack.
On release her basic attacks were not anymore able to apply crits on the second part, making her extremly dependend on the 1st ability "Sickle Storm".
Now with the hot fix 3.16.3600.1. her basic attack mechanic is changed once more, back to a status between the 1st PTS build and the final PTS Build, with a small tweak.

Izanami will still just be able to apply 'On-Hit' effects once per basic, on the first target hit.
Izanami can now crit again on both ways. In and out.
Critical hits can effect every target in the path.
Critical hits will now apply, all benefits of them on all targets which got critical hit.
That means every critical strike on both ways, in and out, will now apply: "Rage" (both Stacks gain and remove), "Poisen Star" (Debuffs for everybody), "Wind Demon" (Movementspeed all day long), "Malice" (procs for full dmg), "Deathbringer" (on all hits).

new patch, time to theorycraft!

So, regarding my guide, the new update will have to wait for a couple of reasons:
1) Everyone's still researching, currently, i know Qin's Sais will remain, i know that full power Izanami works pretty good, crit does less damage on her boomerangs but still same damage on sickle, and lifesteal is weird.

currently, i'm thinking of the unicorn/crit mixed build, since you still need to box with Sickle Storm

2) law school is starting tommorow :p wish me luck!

edit:...
THEY NERFED HER, WHAT?!

according to dukesloth, the interaction with crit didnt happen earlier. in fact, they nerfed her 1 day before the patch, so her crit interactions will be 75%...

the **** hirez?

I would like to know what is everyone's opinion on her model; it first came to my mind with the release of Expelled Hel skin but I find Izanami even more potentially debatable- it's not that it bothers ME, but I saw Smite being rated as a "Teen" game, which apparently means 13+ years old.

Don't you think that the way she moves and uses taunt (or joke? the one where she spins her body without moving her head) animation and to some degree, her appearance feel a bit too creepy/spooky for a potential 13 y/o kid that'd be playing the game? Or are the standards going up higher and higher- that may also be the case.

40-year-olds play Pokemon. 10-year-olds play Call of Duty. Age ratings are basically just a formality.

well, the community did specifically ask for it. there was litterly a reddit post that reached the top and threatened hirez if the representation of Izanami isnt scary enough.

Things being 'scary' actually rarely give a higher rating threshold. The reason why horror games are often rated M is because of gore, swearing and other adult content. Scare factor alone usually isn't enough to get anything beyond a T in the video game world or a pg 13 in movies.

The icon that was included in the Smite game files was different to the one they've given her in the client now, fixed.
