:thought_balloon: What do you think of Caitlín ?

This thread is for thoughts and discussion on Caitlín.

Based on preferences Forum members have expressed, please try to stick mainly to Caitlín and not wander off topic too much to other heroes.

Some Popular Questions for Discussion

  • Is Caitlín worth summoning for?

  • Would you use Caitlín on Defense? Offense? War? Quests/Events? Titans?

  • Which heroes on your Roster best pair with Caitlín ?

  • What heroes would you take when facing Caitlín as an opponent?

*NOTE: Summon Results posted without any commentary/feedback at all should be flagged as Off Topic and removed, based on preferences expressed by the Forum community. Please include some comments about what you think of Caitlín when posting Summon Results. In addition to opinions about Caitlín, you are also encouraged to include how many Summons it took before receiving Caitlín (or how many Summons you’ve done without receiving Caitlín), so other players are presented with realistic experiences of the rarity of Legendary Event hero.

:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:
Or: How many summons are needed to get a Legendary Challenge Event Hero?

It’s important to remember that Challenge Event Heroes have EXTREMELY low summoning odds. No amount of summoning will guarantee a Challenge Event Hero.

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 1.65% chance of summoning Caitlín.

But that statistic can lead our minds astray in exactly how our odds play out as we continue summoning.

Some useful insights:

  • 15 times out of 100, you’ll get Caitlín by pull 100 (26,000 gems)
  • 56 times out of 100, you’ll get Caitlín by pull 500 (130,000 gems)
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Caitlín by pull 1,796 (467,200 gems)
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Caitlín by pull 2,761 (717,900 gems)

Putting that in Perspective

  • 85 out of every 100 people won’t get Caitlín by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each spent $259.97 (US) to summon :one::zero::zero: times, 846,364 of those players wouldn’t get Caitlín

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Caitlín by the 1800th pull

  • If 1 Million players each spent $4,671.53 US to summon :one::eight::zero::zero: times, 49,663 of those players wouldn’t get Caitlín

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:


:thinking: Wondering About Your Personal Situation?

Feel free to discuss your team and roster here, and ask for advice from other Forum members.

If you’d like more extensive advice on sorting out your particular roster, I recommend creating a new thread in #gameplay-help-tactics, and posting screenshots of your hero roster, along with your questions.

Sadly she is the only one I did not manage to summon! But she sounds awesome to have! Congrats!

I’m curious to see how much she’ll appear in defenses. :smiley:

Balance change since the last Beta:

  • HP regeneration stack is now increased from 10 to 20, and 2 HP regeneration stack are given when you fire the special skill.

I immediately made her 4.80 and tried against Sif back center in a friendly match.
I thought the Slayers family wouldn’t get a lot of stacks with a single hero, but it was horribly easy to reach max stacks.
After that, she recovers 3 digits of HP every turn and fires skill at a fast speed.
Fortunately, her basic attack power is low and her damage ratio is not so high, so I think she is well-balanced in that respect.

Have you taken he for a spin? Whats youre comments on her? Got lucky and just got her also, im in the middle of leveling Aouda right now… cant decide if i put Aouda on hold or not.

Realy like the mana and heal stacking, time will tell if the Slayers heroes are to change the meta in this game!

Only 5* slayer that I pulled so far, but I wanted her the most, so I’ll take it! :grin::+1:t2:

I tested her in a high - top diamond arena to fill the raid chest.
I’d give her a B+ or A- rank in offense team. High basic stats, endless self-healing, fast AoE. She never died while filling the chest.
However, her skill is not a large-scale destruction, but a utility skill that erases troublesome buffs and damages them, so she is almost powerless against buff-independent defense teams.

Aouda is useful for any defense team. If you have a team build that can ignore JF, Sif, Garnet, and professor etc buffs, I would definitely choose Aouda.
I can only remove buffs with C.Mel +18 (easy to die), so I maxed Caitlin without hesitation.

First & only pull…. As will do pulls on last day with. Coins from PoV & event mining….

Her first dispells is the key to keep her undead.
2nd deal damage….
But
3rd line of special ensures that opposition can be damaged badly / killed one shot….

Good hero !

Thanks for youre comment. I’ll continue my Aouda project then :slight_smile:

I also got the emblems to get Aouda to +20, while Alfie just took all of my wizard emblems.

Is wizard class completely worthless for Caitlin? Since she dispels first before doing damage, does that mean jinx wont activate (unless target has undispellable buffs)?

Or does the game coding first see that the target has buffs, activates jinx, then dispels, and finally does damage with jinx bonus dmg?

I told myself i was going to save all my 110+ coins for pirates or villains but ended up doing some 2am yolo pulls. Got Caitlin and Aodhon in 7 pulls.

I’ve used Caitlin(+15) many times, but never activated Jinx.
Personally, it’s the most mismatched talent, alongside Raffaele and Guin.

I got her on my first pull, really wanted Saoirse to replace Wilbur on my red stack for titans, but family bonus if I can get both of them.

I was about to dart up Devana but going to hold on a bit now

I have no clue,… I do not have Caitlin and I’m not sure which order does the game coding.
Maybe jinx start record and will add bonus from damage deal after skill completed. So, buff still included.

  1. Jinx activate, record how many buff the target
  2. Special skill dispell, damage, finish
  3. Calculate Jinx damage result

It is hard to track though.

Wizard class is NOT worthless, which immediately makes her the very best wizard in the game along with Cobalt. Not only do your buffs do nothing, they just make her angrier :smiling_imp:
