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:

There’s a typo in the title. (Green)

Thanks for all the effort you put into getting these posts up for every new batch of heroes! It’s becoming a full time job… :heart:

I love VF snipers. He would be great on offense just like Khonshu

VF cover passive…sigh…
6 turns is a long time. Perpetual with this VF hero

All these new minion counters…I better find a different defense…lol…he looks great!


Can’t wait to hunt M&M now :slight_smile:


Just a notice, is this the first hero with an actual handgun? (sure Anne has a cannon, but she is a figurehead of a pirate ship so kinda makes sense)
Gun powder is officially invented in this game!
How long until we see an Ak-47?

We have Captain Kestrel


Please give us the feedback about the hunting.

6 tiles to trap MM seems very interesting


Even with the changes from beta …this guy is still a keeper… :kissing_heart:
Would love to pull this one out of the portal…
Good luck everyone @!!


After the $30 deal yesterday and nothing, bought 2 of the $7 deals for 7 pulls this morning and got him.
