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.
For titans, nah - his tile damage will be midtier even with +20. The only reason to emblem him would be for PvP, where he does over 400 undispellable and unmitigateable poison damage on a fast timer, while also shuffling Telly to where the sun don’t shine.
I don’t see the draw for this hero. I just pulled him the other day. Seeing some comments about Treevil being superior with 64% def down vs Cat’s. Would have been nice if this was EDD, rather than straight up defense down, which creates a lot more competition for him, especially since it only applies against yellow.
His other skills to rearrange heroes… yeah, sure it would be nice to rearrange those riposte heroes or a nasty tank, but I’d rather bring a strong dispeller. Those enemies will still have counterattack, so this doesn’t really help your AOE specials.
His undispellable poison damage does seem nice and so does his mana speed. I’m sure he’s nice against titans to keep that def down. Compare that with Treevil again and yes, treevil’s def down is stronger, but at very slow speed vs fast. Something to think about.
Still not making me feel the urge to level him. I think his def down is what’s hurting him. Should be EDD so it stacks or it should apply to more than just holy heroes. At fast speed, I guess that might make him a bit OP.
am I missing any sort of strategy that would make me not want to feed him to someone else?
I use him on titans (don’t have treevil, though). One huge plus for me is that the Cat is a Sorcerer and I’m drowning in Sorcerer emblems which made it easy to bring him to +20. This makes him sturdy enough for 14 star titans
I think it’ll be a while before my roster depth justifies spending resources on such a niche hero. Kinda like Jott. I want to like him, but he’s slow. I hear he’s great for titans, but it’s hard to level a hero for JUST Red Titans or in the case of cat, JUST yellow titans.
I have Treevil 55+20, I’ll give him a few mana pots to compensate for his slowness and try to keep his defense up to take a few hits at least until he fires.
