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:

150% damage hope they buff him really underwhelming hero

After reading Snowball’s description, Barkley lands with a dull thud.

This at Very Fast perhaps, at Average … uhhh, not so enticing.

EDIT: This aged poorly as the beta version was a pale shadow in comparison to the hero that was actually released (300% vs 150% and missile fiend doing 500 damage rather than 150%).

Suddenly Barkley looks in line with SG’s policy of “New Heroes: OP Only”


That passive ability though… sheesh.

I view him as a 5* carol. He is meant to combo with snipers, to introduce splash damage for them

Not very interesting. But that’s just Pug’s Life summed up.

Well, this dog definitely had his day upon lauynch of the portal, with his damage being amped up to 300% (doubled!)

And they changed his fiends to dish out a fixed 500 damage to nearby. I would however be interested to confirm if that applies 500 damage to each nearby or 500 damage split between nearby… (likely the former?)

Probably 500 each. He is definitely interesting now, a way better carol. On titans that’s 900% damage already! Also an additional 85% damage with his fiend passive


The hero card is updated with the buffs. Polls are available now.


Short questions: is it 500 dmg per active fiend or 500 no matter how many fiends the target got when dying? And: are the subsequent hits random targets beside the main target or can he randomly also hit the main target again? Thx.

Only a one time 500 damage. Also it may hit the same target as well, stacking the fiends. That’s how I read it according to the card description

Its damage per fiend on the killed enemy. If they have 3 fiends when they die, its 500 damage 3 times to the nearby enemies

He can hit the same target twice, and its per fiend.

I’m no longer annoyed i pulled him after seeing the buff, could be very nasty against taunters


:rocket::rocket: Dude :rocket::rocket:


Those crazy pug eyes :crazy_face:

So lucky pulling him on a single pull? Congrats :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

Is his power (1131 with 2 limit break) already included the balance buff for stats? Jumping from around 1115 from new event heroes (like the new magic ones) to 1131 is huge in less than a month…
