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:

How is no one talking about this hero? 3* dodge hero that’s a rogue at fast speed. I’ll be leveling her up immediately, can’t wait to use her.


just thinking the same thing…a 3* dodge plus some damage and defense stack…looks like I have a new hero for 3* bloody…


She’s pretty good, fast dodger and damager, only for three at both sides but still. And her dodge bonus is unremovable defense stack. Not even talking aboout passive or family bonus or rogue class.


In case anyone was interested…

And path…


Very nice, I’m just doing mine now

Is there a reason you took the mana node?


I have no idea why I did that! Makes zero sense.

Aqeela and Costume Melia seem like a nice yurple pair! C Melia does blind to all at fast speed, and Aqeela provides dodge special = multiplicative chance of not getting hit!


That’s actually a really great idea, I totally forgot about her costume.

Are you going to tank Aqeela? @zyairie

Thanks all for the feedback - just pulled her and am eager to max !


I have adjusted the OP with the June balance updates.

What do you think of it now after several months of use? I’m wondering whether to do LB or not :slight_smile:

I didn’t have one at the time of the post and haven’t seen too many other 3 star tournaments where she would be valuable. Then I got one, leveled her, and limit broke her yesterday to use in this week’s buff booster tournament. Let’s see how I feel about her at the end of the week.

I think she does a few things, but nothing super amazing.

Aqeela was one of the first 3* I maxed and LB. Still a staple in many of my lineups and on defense in 3* tourneys. She has won me countless matches. I’ve never put her anywhere other than right flank and she’s been exceptional. Definitely overlooked by many. I think the Dunes 3*'s are some of, if not the best set in the game. Faiez, Waqas, Rekhetre are some of my most used heroes (also Treevil in Rush).
