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:

I love buff block. That being said, I might pull some

He’s a better el nadaha.

He does more damage than Lewena and AoE buff blocker, gets that debuff for three turns afterwards. But in this case the debuff seems to be justified. Will be useful hero.

Offensively, I still prefer El nada. Higher damage to 3 will be easier to confirm kill. Especially when the opponent have full HP or over heal.

When SG release a green hit-all elemental defense down, Archie might make more sense.

From a defense perspective, Archie is better as it hits all.

Buff block ia good and all but that and his damage arnt worth the negative accuracy. I have a feeling his damage will be increased from 280 to 325

It’s 3 turns and applies only to him. I don’t see much problem there. Also, it’s only 20%

Well I like it! I’ve saved a few EHT in anticipation :heart_eyes:
so I’ve budgeted a few pulls so I’m really excited to see if I can get this guy :smiling_face_with_three_hearts::smiling_face_with_three_hearts:. Besides llamas are awesome I just wish they would do away with the self ailments of the seasonal heros from this event…it’s a dated notion.
Good luck everyone!!

Like Archie & SG also knows….so my conspiracy theory says, they will reduced this chap and give out more of the old fellows….:face_with_raised_eyebrow::roll_eyes:

Now that blaming SG is done… out of the way….
I like Archie and since I m working on my 2nd C. Gazelle led green team, it’s missing only El Naddaha…where Archie will be perfect fit.

  • Hits all & anti-Buff ailment to all + penalty for attempts.
  • accuracy ailment to self will get wiped out by Gazelle.
    &
  • Gazelle buff ensure I don’t care about the % damage difference with El Nad.

Ma’at & Archie might work well for those that get then together.

With Cinnamon whacking away, I m seriously considering completing one C.Lepus….

Cheers to the saved EHTs !

Thx, I have “nerfed” it to 4 in the OP :slight_smile:

Disappointed the damage went down to 250%. Immediate damage is the most lethal aspect for defensive attacking heroes. DOT increase means nothing as it gives opponent more turns to counter. Overall a big nerf.

SG knows a lot of people can get him from this portal. I guess 280% damage is too much for F2P or C2P players.

Got this lovely Llama!! Definitely a very nice upgrade to the Nature team and happy it only took 6 pulls!

Agreed, this portal just became uninteresting.

The damage reduction isn’t too unexpected. I put together a post about Archie on my blog for those interested:
