Smite 3.7 Patch Notes: "The Grim Weaver"

By Devin McIntyre, 7 months ago
Just a week after Hi-Rez sent patch 3.6 for SMITE to consoles, the 3.7 patch notes have been released for "The Grim Weaver" patch coming out tomorrow, Wednesday May 4th.

This patch will bring the rest of the "Escape from the Underworld" event, a remodel for Arachne as well as new VGS commands to allow for better communication amongst players. A brief overview of the patch can be seen below:



With the Arachne remodel, she is receiving all new animations, a new look and textures along with the new style of mastery skins, her default card as well as the card for her gold skin can be seen below:



With the continuation of the "Escape from the Underworld" event, this patch will bring the remaining items from the event to consoles, including a new icon, a new global emote, a new ward skin, and the following God skins:



From first to last, we have Grim Weaver Arachne, Grim Eclipse Hou Yi and Grim Shadow Nox. The Hou Yi and Arachne skins will be directly purchasable for 400 gems whereas the Nox skin will be rewarded to players for collecting six items from the event. It should be noted that this means players will have to buy at least three of the 400 gem items, while the three quests from the event can be completed in order to count towards the other three items.

There are also a few skins coming in this patch that are not part of the "Escape from the Underworld" event, from first to last we have Hunter's Moon Chang'e, Legion Hercules and Amaterasu's mastery skins.




The Chang'e and Hercules skins are both tier 2 skins and are therefore directly purchasable for 250 gems each.

The rest of the patch notes, including bug fixes, item changes, God balance and more can be seen below:
