Atomos at his best - last man standing against 3 enemies. (Granted kinda low health. But it’s also heal aid). In this video all 3 enemies have just fired. Seshat killed Atomos, Marjana and Drake both “ghosted” their specials vs Atomos. Critically, Seshat killed Atomos before dispelling his resurrect:
(I really should have edited out some of the delays in that video where I was trying to think about which tiles to move hah. Sorry for the slow play!)
Atomos is a fine tank on defense. From my experience fighting him in raids, he hurts as much as just about any hero when he goes off. The resurrect isn’t terribly problematic as most teams have some sort of dispeller, but it certainly adds a layer of complexity for attacking teams to consider. His stat line is balanced - he is no Telly so certainly carries extra vulnerability to a red stack.
On offense Atomos can, as illustrated above, be an absolute savior unlike many other heroes in the game. He doesn’t deal the most damage out there, but he’s contributing that solid stat line - both not hurting your tile damage and being survivable enough to occasionally be your last man standing.
emblems: obviously he’s better with emblems. In my roster he’s competing against Gormek, Grimm, and Mok-Arr for barbarian emblems. He’s an easy choice (especially since our alliance runs green tanks and he’s all I’ve as far as a green tank goes). If you have GM or Kageburrito, thats tough. I’d personally go GM>Atomos>Kage.
conclusion; great looking hero. I love the art work and I’m glad that SG took the effort to fix Atomos mana speed. He was broken, but now he’s a very lovable character.
