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:

Feel free to discuss your team and roster here, and ask for advice from other Forum members.

All allies get 10% health for each minion destroyed, so it’s possible for your whole team to heal up to 90%???

I foresee a nerf in January. Probably they will not do it in November/ December in order not scare (again) people from pulling from the Christmas event

I will hope to pull this one and then sit back and wait to see what happens next :kissing_heart:

Can this hero be more OP? WTH…

Pair with 2 other red hit-3’s against a minion team.

For Dracula spelled backwards:

the mad hatter "Abilitly" is 100%…?
So…why is it a passive/ability ???
Just add it to the long list:

250% hit-3, bypass-all-buffs damage timed nicely for AFTER the minion removal which will translate to
0-90% health recovery.
And 0-27% mana generation.
Both likely averaging somewhere close to the middle.
And a a fairly meaningless family bonus for a hero that has a mountain of versatility and power at…
very… fast… speed

I am very surprised this hero isn’t dark!
How refreshing…

Now later on, when they attach that Balance FAQ to the update, which reads:

You all just keep glossing right on past it

All though… this hero may not be the greatest defender, don’t take minions against him.
And…when it comes to nerfing offense
no one cares… only defenders get thwacked,
So instead… throw him on your attack teams and make those minion summoners
ahem… the new meta… see how this works?
A LIABILITY

That is… after you pay for him of course

Just wow. This hero is op. I want. Wont go nuts chasing though.

It might mean people won’t have minion summoners on defense any more, and then won’t bring minion summoners on offense against this hero. This OP hero might then become a niche? :thinking:

They have been pumping out minion summoners. They pump out different kinds of anti minion heroes recently. That means, there is something new in the corner, at least this is how it works in other businesses. The last squeeze that may be ongoing for many months.

Happy gaming

Just if you get him dont rush level lb etc if you are going to complain when/if he is nerfed.

what makes people think that he is OP? without minions summoner, he is just a hit 3 hero with v.fast, that’s it

11 Likes

Exactly that!
He does silly high damage at very fast speed which bypasses def buffs.
That alone was a super strong hero.
Then add the passive and the whole minion shebang lol…

Did anyone summon for CGefjon? Well guess you got a week or two out of her, before she gets outclassed by a mile lol…
