The Pillars of Success patch also introduces new God character Ganesha, below you can see details of what players can expect in terms of abilities from the Hindu God:
Passive – Good Fortune
Upon killing an enemy God, Ganesha will instead give the nearest friendly God the Kill credit and receive the rewards for an Assist. In addition, his Assist range is increased by 20 units and the duration for his Assists is increased by 5s.
Turn of Fate
Ganesha curses his enemies with his considerable willpower, damaging (90/150/210/270/330 +55% of your Magical Power) them. For each enemy he hits (up to a maximum of 5), all allied gods within 55 units of Ganesha gain Bonus Damage. Cost: 65/70/75/80/85. Cooldown: 14s.
Bonus Damage Per Stack : 2%.
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. Cost: 55/60/65/70/75. Cooldown: 14/13/12/11/10s.
Ganesha charges forward, hooking an enemy with his goad, holding them in place and damaging (75/120/160/200/240 +45% of your Magical Power) the enemy before knocking them up. While dashing, Ganesha passes through player-made deployables. Cost: 70/75/80/85/90. Cooldown: 15s.
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 (95/135/175/215/255 +40% of your Magical Power) damage, are slowed, and have their protections reduced for 3s. Cost: 80/90/100/110/120. Cooldown: 75s.
Slow Duration: 3s.
Protection Reduction: 15/25/35/45/55.
The Pillars of Success also brings with it numerous emotes such as the Ganesha Clap and Ganesha Wave. While the update is Ganesha centric that’s not to say other characters are left out in the cold.
Gods Scylla, Mercury, Nike, Ullr and Janus are all treated to new character skins ranging from Scylla’s Vampiric skin right through to Janus’ Worldwalker skin.
