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:

Very strong, but it has counters, so I would not call her OP compared to many others. The similarity in name with Azmia though, especially as they are both Ice…


I wonder why only ice for the mana gen?

Yeah that is a very big limitation. It should be All but Ice gets a tad more.

This is a 0.1% hero. It should not have this limitation

Save your coins for another.

  1. Gosh, I wonder if anyone will ever get Anzia and Azmia mixed up, because of their names, or also because they are both Blue counterattackers

  2. It seems weird that a 0.1% 5* hero has a special that seems not really more… special…. than a 4* hero’s. (Yes, of course the 5* stats/chassis are bigger, but why pull for this hero when 10^12 OP heroes will be appearing in other portals in a few seconds?)


Sorry, I don’t like this hero. I think fast speed had been a better option to Anzia due to It’s a 0,1%

Is it worth doing 30 pulls for COE as I need blues, Quintin would be nice to have. But I am scared of getting exeera. And these two, azmia’s sister and zynga don’t seem to be worth the 0.1% pull rate

See the line up first when portal opens.

There should be a FTW offer too. Plus at least one in Web Store. Let’s wait to see how good those offers are.

If the offers average out at around S$1.50, I wouldn’t mind trying cos it’s <S$50. If your budget is around there.

Otherwise it’s at least S$2.20 each (I think) => S$66 for 30x

If you are using the 12k gems from this week’s WS SO, that 30x should be about enough: 3400 10x. Price per summon for that offer revises upwards to about S$1.58

Challenge 50
LNY 5x
ToL 5x
30x Covenant 10200 gems
4x Covenant 1600 gems
Total 94 summons

In addition to all the comments above, Anzia is a cleric…there are too many clerics, and her skillset is not really that good to justify taking away someone else’s cleric emblems??

Maybe I am missing something here?!

They’re both Ice and have counter ability. Seems a bit lazy. Glad that SGG didn’t name her Aimza, though Sdrawkcab Monks would undoubtedly approve.

Otherwise she seems ok, especially when considering that annoying passive, but if you compare her with the likes of Jequn or Roz, she really lacks behind. Especially that mana generation that is only for Ice heroes. Yes, she is meant to be used with other ice heroes, but still. Her counter can be really powerful but is too much dependent on tiles.

I think she’ll get a stealth buff before release.


I think she is meant for a blue stack. but on a blue stack, why would you need to use defensive skills like this? So this is just for blue stacks with bad boards at this point

All of elemental heroes are meant to be used mainly with heroes of their element, notably their passive supports that. Thing is though, that even out of elemental stack they can hold their own. Even Zandria who is Very Slow. But ice heroes are terrible. One is too dependent on stack and one on presence of fire heroes.

I expect either last second buff before release or not many summons done in this portal, where both of featured heroes with terrible odds are terrible on top of everything else. If not for passive they’d be worse than S1 heroes (who have now Superior Talents and with x2 C-bonus even higher stats).


Seems to me that they are meant for fire titans and that’s all, especially zynga

Zynga does damage to nearby if the target is Fire, but titans are alone. Dunno how he works for single targets. Otherwise he’ll be there only for passive and that doesn’t do a lot of damage (100 base per turn with max tiles is nothing when single tile hits for 3-5k). Aimza is more useful on that front, but titan attacks, unless it fires special (with Miki it mostly won’t), won’t charge much of mana. Better use Tethys or someone. Tethys is actually better hero with elemental favoritism than these two.

Really, I dunno where they were going with these two. :person_shrugging:

I had exactly this in mind. I already have Exeera. BUT, I got G Hippo this morning so only blue I would want is Mr Pengi and since I have no mats to level two blues, this portal is a big pass for me

G. Hippo is not going to be there, I think the requirement is the hero being 180+ days in other portal. That means the new blue Ninja with unpronounceable name isn’t there either. On the flip side, no Balur too.

Really these elemental portals are kind of like Black friday, but for single element. There are S1 heroes but for 5* the chance is really low (2.3%/50 * 4 = 0.184% with 50 5* in total barring featureds; of course if you do pull one it sucks much more). On the other hand you can pull Quintin, Aino or Miki … but you might as well pull Exeera, Klaern or Russula.

Personally I might use my coins but that’s it.
