More Insights & Reading

I highly recommend reading these three threads for more information and context on summoning odds:

If you’ve read them a million times before, you may consider reading them again before deciding on your budget for summoning. A little time spent deciding on how much money you want to risk on summoning goes a long way to avoiding disappointment, frustration, and regret later. :slight_smile:

Interesting sniper giving you a sadistic choice. Either you keep fiend so you can’t heal and it damages you each turn with 250% of damage, or you remove it and take 810 bleed damage afterwards. In theory Milena should heal out minion, so bleed damage should come after, when Mil cleanses it. But still, will be annoying, especially with those purple super-elemental gems around.


As I said in the other super elemental thread I like both these dark heros and don’t know which I like best. But I would ad that I really appreciate the artwork on these two as a matter of personal preference I like the art on all the super elementals


Here you go. The girl is Aconia, guy would be Griffex.

And before someone starts to complain about beta, it was downloaded from official FB page.


Beautiful art, indeed.

But am I the only one that thinks she is OP? We have many that hit 3 at average speed for 250%. She will hit at least two (unless there are no Holy hero on the defense) with 250% EACH TURN, after she fires at fast speed…


Maybe not OP? The fiend only absorbs 20%. My LB Anne has 1667 HP. So fiend damage is about 330. Lot of poison damage, but that’s DOT and presumably dispellable. Seems like a niche Hero designed to combat the truly OP yellow defenses… if I had Anne, Jove, and Ogima on defense I’d be very worried. Otherwise not so much. Am I missing something?


Further thought… speed aside Rayne seems like a similar and more powerful hero.

I would be interested to know how this interacts with healers who heal first and then cleanse after their heal - Lets take Milena for instance:

Aconia casts fiend
Milena casts heal → Fiend absorbs healing and gives bleed damage
→ Does this then result in the 2nd part of Milena’s 1x Charge special cleansing the residual bleed?


Darn…sounds like Arco will still get the bleed damage.

Will make a nice combo with Mistweaver (and other similar heroes who prevent healing).

Arco converts fiends into minions before healing.

So I believe Arco is the perfect counter. No damage - extra healing even - as soon as Arco fires his special.


For sure. Any fiend maker I face, Arco is in my lineup.


It seems she arrived without any change from Beta.
Polls are now visible.


Morning launch luck.

Unfortunately, like many of you, I am out of roster space and refuse to spend 550 gems for 5 additional slots.

SE news?


Congrats, fun pull. SE news = don’t hold your breath :rofl: :innocent:


Hopefully it’s not too long to wait before we see what the 250% every turn damage looks like :smiley:


810 bleed damage in 3 turns…
And JF needed to be nerfed as his damage was too high. :rofl::rofl::rofl:


The card says 250% attack, not 250% damage. Damage is not lineraly dependent on attack, and damage from 250% attack against a hero will be huge. It will be like a tile hit with Wu Kong boost.

It depends how you remove it. For example Rigard or Vivica heal out the fiend and remove the bleed in one action.

Interesting that nobody sees her use on titans. Additional 100% from tile damage and the strong fiends (titan cannot heal them out) can make some real damage.
As a def tank she can also be nasty, when you cannot stack yellow because of the fiends. But maybe it’s because there are much better purple tanks now…
