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:

This hero seems like a red Kage. Great at the start of a fight. Terrible at the end of one.

Team has to stay alive for max damage. Strong fast healers needed.

So he gets +10% against Ice right? (Element that red is weak against)

Looks like they buffed this guy, he now does a guaranteed 540% with additional 30% per living ally, plus 15% attack stack. Makes him much more usable as a sniper since he’s no longer severely handicapped when most allies are dead :slight_smile:


Damn, 690% snipe. 570% even if he’s the last one standing. Really good sniper

King of Snipers, Hands down. That damage potential in fast is insane lol

Great sniper but snipers arent that good on defense. My son pulled him today now I have to decide to do either RnN, this guy or Cleaver

This guy is meant for titans anyways. He can be used as a suicide tank, a 690% hard hit, nobody can really survive that

Going to be good against titans, sure, but going to be good period

I pulled one today​:star_struck::partying_face:
U know, he can deal great damage at even 1/1 level… :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:


With half decent troops he is charged with 7 tiles. Probability is high, your team is fully alive at that point. 690 % should kill everything that got hit by a few tiles already. He will be really good in the secondary color. So 3 monsters damage stack + bonecrusher + red healer.

which is better? Bonecrusher or Sekhmet?

He really can. Got lucky on my ftp account, took him for a quick spin. At 1/1 all allies alive vs mn with 1081 defense he did 438 damage


Sekhmet unless it’s Bloody Battle war or tournament?

Wow you’re really lucky.

Does he definitely count himself as an alive ally? I know allies also includes the hero himself, but in this case since he obviously must he alive to fire off I wonder if it only adds 30% for the fellow 4 allies :thinking:

Ally includes self. Effects like healing heals all allies, including the caster itself
If it’s otherwise it will be gazelle. Her’s states all allies except the caster

My understanding is that against Nature, since Nature is weaker against Fire
