Today, Yu Huang was unveiled in a majestic trailer as the upcoming new character in SMITE. On April 19, he will become the first Mage in a year and the first Chinese God in two years.
In the Chinese pantheon, Yu Huang is the famed vanquisher of the greatest demon king there ever was. In the aftermath of that mythical battle, he ascended to his throne and to divinity, thus becoming the Jade Emperor. Yu Huang’s reign is one of wisdom and enlightenment – and it is about to begin in SMITE.
On the Battleground of the Gods, Yu Huang will be the master of a pearl dragon, which he can summon during battles to fight by his side. After spending several millennia cultivating his Dao, Yu Huang has reached the state of attunement and now uses it as another source of tremendous power.
