Ganesha, the God of Success


Ganesha is our newest God to enter the Battleground, and the first Hindu God to be released in quite a while (Kali was the last Hindu God before him, released on May 31, 2012).  He is a Guardian and has what many veteran Smite Players call “Old Wa’s Ult”, an Ultimate that used to belong to Nu Wa.  This ultimate, combined with a god such as Fenrir, could do massive amounts of damage if done right, called “The Shake-and-Bake”.  It was concerning to many players thatMany people were concerned Ganesha would have the same bug exploit, but so far nothing has come up.



Passive - Good Fortune

Any time Ganesha deals a killing blow, the nearest Friendly God receives credit for the kill and Ganesha receives the rewards for an assist instead. In addition, his assist range is increased by 20' and time before he loses assist credit is increased by 5s.



Ganesha’s Passive is my favorite aspect about him, besides his physical appearance.  His passive gives his kills to a friendly God within a certain range and gives him an Assist instead.  Perfect for a support with a rather aggressive ADC in long lane.


1st Ability - Turn of Fate

Ganesha curses his Enemies with his considerable willpower, damaging them. For each Enemy he hits (up to a maximum of 5), all Allied Gods within 55 units of Ganesha gain bonus Damage.



Ganesha’s 1 is his attack ability.  This ability shoots in a line.  It is good for finishing off minion waves that your ADC leaves behind, and gives a bit of extra damage to friendly Gods near him when used.


2nd Ability - Ohm

Ganesha begins chanting and rises into the lotus position, where he is slowed slightly but allows him to travel freely in all directions. While chanting, he silences Enemy gods in a cone in front of him and increases Physical Protections for all nearby Allied Gods.



Another one of my aspects of Ganesha is his Ohm ability silences enemy gods within its cone range.  Silenced gods are unable to use abilities, items, or consumables.  Perfect for stopping a low health enemy from dashing out, and helps to secure kills for your teammates.


3rd Ability - Remove Obstacles

Ganesha charges forward, hooking an enemy with his goad, holding them in place and damaging the enemy before knocking them up. While dashing, Ganesha passes through player-made deployable's.



This is Ganesha’s Dashing ability.  Ganesha can use this as an escape for himself, or another way to prevent the enemy from escaping.  However, it can be a bit tricky to hit.


Ultimate - Dharmic Pillars

Ganesha summons the Four Great Pillars of Righteousness to imprison his Enemies. Between each pair of pillars a magical field is created, and Enemies who pass through the field take Damage, are Slowed and have their Protections reduced for 3s.



Finally, Ganesha’s Ultimate Ability, the Dharmic Pillars.  This reminds me of a wrestling ring.  Any enemies within the “ring”, take damage and are slowed.  Unfortunately, they aren’t trapped in the ultimate, so they can get out.

Final Thoughts: Although Hi-Rez teased and delayed him for quite some time, he was well worth the wait.  Ganesha appears to be a pretty good support, and I can’t wait to see what our Smite Support Mains can do with him!
