:hugs: Family Bonus

League of Villains Heroes have a family bonus for unique heroes of the same family.

Villains Family
Bonus for 2 / 3 Heroes:

  • 5% / 15% chance to heal for 10% / 30% of dealt damage when attacking an enemy.

Note on Corrosive Burn & interraction with other effects.

Some clarifications on the corrosive effects:

  • Corrosive doesn’t override undispellables
  • Corrosive overrides dispellables (so normal burn doesn’t override corrosive burn)
  • Undispellables overrides corrosive
  • Corrosive overrides stacks
  • Corrosives secondary effects can stack with other similar ones e.g. Dark Lords corrosive poison with Little Johns minus mana generation
  • Dark Lords corrosive poison can be mana shielded by clerics due to the secondary effect
  • HOTMs can resists the whole corrosive effect, if they are immune to first or secondary effect e.g. Reuben and Ranvir both can resist Dark Lords status ailment

:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:
Or: How many summons are needed to get a Legendary Challenge Event Hero?

It’s important to remember that Challenge Event Heroes have EXTREMELY low summoning odds. No amount of summoning will guarantee a Challenge Event Hero.

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 1.65% chance of summoning Asterius.

But that statistic can lead our minds astray in exactly how our odds play out as we continue summoning.

Some useful insights:

  • 15 times out of 100, you’ll get Asterius by pull 100 (26,000 gems)
  • 56 times out of 100, you’ll get Asterius by pull 500 (130,000 gems)
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Asterius by pull 1,796 (467,200 gems)
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Asterius by pull 2,761 (717,900 gems)

Putting that in Perspective

  • 85 out of every 100 people won’t get Asterius by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each spent $259.97 (US) to summon :one::zero::zero: times, 846,364 of those players wouldn’t get Asterius

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Asterius by the 1800th pull

  • If 1 Million players each spent $4,671.53 US to summon :one::eight::zero::zero: times, 49,663 of those players wouldn’t get Asterius

More Insights & Reading

I highly recommend reading these two 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 would have thought Asterius would be getting more love. I’m excited by the potential of adding defense down on top of Wilbur’s existing defense down.

Is the duration too short at three turns? Is the variability in defense down too random? Is he too rare of a pull to generate excitement for those that still use BT-Wilbur-Falcon?

Part of me hopes to have them stacked, but the other part tells me that it is already OP combo.

@Guvnor this one is def down (pretty sure it’s just place holder from Dark lord), might get confuse other hotms inhate ability and defense down

I wasn’t going to change that text; it’s the same on all 4 heroes who have “corrosive” effects.

Same thing with c marjana I guess. And she is 3 turns on fast. This is 3 turns on average. These ailments are also difficult to time as well for maximum damage

I pulled him this morning and i was really wondering about his usage. My red mono team is already full, got plenty of heroes that fight for rings … i just don’t know whether i have a place for him.

Is it 88 burn per turn? Lower defence stacks?

You can stack the defence down with Wilbur

Thanks, that might come handy.

Yeah the extra defense down is where he can come in. If you already have BT-Wilbur-Falcon adding Asterius to do damage at the same mana speed and then dropping defense even further for your last hitter is the situation I have been thinking of. Also since he drops defense he can fit in with almost any team without worrying about overwriting another hero.

Does anyone know if going attack path with emblems will raise the burn as it does with GM?

@Rosco1011 i maxed his attack. Went up 11pts per turn.


Do I have a problem with Asterius? Not really. I get a lot of red heroes and I’m depleted on rings so I’ll just spend the next few months with him sleeping in a corner, never realizing his true potential in my red stack.

Haha i had 12 rings and just wanted to have some fun. And druid class was the final piece. I have vela +20 and no others. So had 1400 saved up. So match made in heaven :grin:. Hes been pretty good. Strong man.

Ya i get it alot of good reds. He hits 3 pretty hard. I roll with black knight, costume marj and him. Its pretty devastating. During war asterius will probably be on a secondary team. Wilbur, falcon and asterius do all stack

I pulled Asterius using the Valentine gem gifts from my alliance! Normally his Average speed and 3-hit special would underwhelm, but thanks to the new Raid Formations I will actually invest in levelling him up.

Not an amazing hero, but also not a bad one.

My biggest complaint after maxing him is that Corrosive Burn and burn from GM, JF, Marj, etc. don’t stack, since it’s corrosive burn instead of just burn, I don’t think they should overwrite. I know it’s working as intended, but it also makes an Okay hero pretty blah for those of us that run 3/2 stacks.

If Asterius use his skill on same target again before the corrosive burn wear off, will the defense decrease lower than -30% ?

Could anyone try Asterius + Athena ? Can this combo reduce defense to -95% ?

I assume you got -95% from Asterius -30% and Athena capping at -65% (IIRC)?
I don’t think that’s how it works as if you throw in an EDD it would go negative. I think it’s more like
(1-.3)*(1-.65) = 24.5% or -75.5%
Add in a a -54% EDD and you get -88.73% defense.
