What is Yoruba?:
Essentially this is a religion which started in Africa and now exist in a few places in various forms. Within the religion exists what are known as Orishas, an Orisha is a spirit/diety which represents a manifestation of god. According to Wikipedia the religion and its variants may have up to 100 million followers worldwide. Within the religion there is a god known as Olorun at the top, below him are a large list of Orishas. Orunmila is essentially second in command to Olorun Learn more here. In the next few weeks I plan on making a few concepts for african gods.




Orunmila’s origins are shrouded in mystery, 2 things we know about him however are that he brought divine knowledge to earth and was present at the moment of creation. As second in command to Olorun he has many titles; He is the embodiment of wisdom and knowledge, He is the divinity of destiny and prophecy, he is the witness to fate and creation.


Orunmila’s main focus is too keep his lane in check, whilst helping out his team. He has a global presence which for the moment is unmatched in SMITE (until they release an omnipresent god). A successful Orunmila relies heavily on his teammates, vision and roaming are both important in using his kit to its full potential. His 1st passive in essence acts like a timer, enemies will be aware that he is building stacks and will feel the need to prevent hi doing so. His 2nd passive interacts with his kit to help him support his teammates globally, the buff’s purpose is too spread his healing potential while the actual stats it gives are mean to be helping but not significant. His 1st ability is his at times his only damaging ability, its main purpose is to allow him to push lane and be a relevant in teamfights after using his 3. His 2 will allow him to scout out the jungle and at times chase the enemy, as vision is so important to him proper use of this ability is essential. His 3 gives him a crazy amount of global presence both as a helper and a hinderer, its also what makes his 1st passive so threatening. His ultimate needs no explanation.


Passive: [Knowledge is Power]
As Orunmila gains vision of an enemy he gains knowledge of them. Enemy gods he has vision of gain a debuff called [He Knows], for every x seconds he has vision of them he gains additional damage mitigation against that god.
