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:

How are they releasing Bennu with one skill less than Sif? Azmia 4* even has healing on top.

I sincerely hope, he comes out better. He is one of the oldest gods!

He lacks one aditional skill.

I would add him dispell all enemies or deals 100% dmg to all enemies for the next 3 turns…

This is what I was wondering too. I guess you get better base stats and the counterattack can go up. But no mana boost?
Strange design two seasons later.

These stats seems to be from last beta and a bit underwhelming in regards to other S5 5* after the May 2022 Balance Update. I think those are more in line:

Level Attack Defense Health Power
4.80 :crossed_swords:
768
:shield:
834
:heart:
1497
:zap:
836
4.85 :crossed_swords:
828
:shield:
899
:heart:
1613
:zap:
892

(+100 to power with 20 talents)

Yes, I think these numbers will be boosted.

I will update the OP once we Staff reveals the actual numbers.

He seems interesting a hero to play. We shall see my fingers are crossed that I have a front row seat to his show…lol…love to have this guy

Not impressed. There are plenty of counter attack heroes and this one is nothing special

That’s barely an improvement over the standard 125% counterattack. There needs to be something more

Add :
Boosts health of caster n nearby allies by 550. Boosted health can exceed max HP.

he will be better

Present Bennu make perfect combo with Klaern named Zero Summon :wink:

He is a blue Sif-like. Nice hero, but nothing truly inventive here. I would max him if I happen to get him, without enthousiasm though.

at least we will not be crazy to make summons, relaxing days is coming :+1:

problem with this hero’s passive skill. As it causes -35%accuracy to enemy… And main skill is counted attack… So this hero cannot be used it’s max potential. Both active and passive skill on different sptrectum ends.

Im surprised they released him as is. Beta wasn’t happy Bennu, the card does seem underwhelming

Got him on my third pull, I wish I had summoned one of the other two featured heroes :man_shrugging:t2: Honestly will max Exeera for red teams offense before him, if I ever max him at all!

The Family Bonus which causes -35% accuracy is triggered when Bennu is hit by a skill, not when he fires his skill


I do not know how to feel. He can shine and be a great tank but he need some seriouse change. First of all his family bonus. Please change him to moon family. Other think, give him some nice buff, example, he reflects mana reduce - 24% or defense down or attack down or something to make him more interesting (maybe increase a mana for 24% for him and his nearby allies for 2 3 turns) . Make his stats a little bit higher.Maybe make him deals 150% damage. For now, he is not my priority even that I need a blue tank
