Only reason that I can think of that anyone would want cAegir that they would already have his original form leveled and emblemed. Even than he might not be worth it.

Additional healing is nice though.

FYI, I have him fully leveled, LB and emblemed.

I am sure you already guessed it, I am F2P

This is ridicolous!

He will be the first buffer hero with average speed and 3 turns buff!
And he would be subpar or average in competing vs current buffers if he was 4 turns.

Buff before release please!


Had Aegir emblemed for years due to lack of other Paladins. If I remember correctly, the last time I used him anywhere was the first instances of a paladin emblem quest, so that my team has some kind of healing…

Stripped him now to give the emblems to Ludwig.

He needs a lot of buffing and this costume as well. Make him more dangerous, add to his special something like

  • increases the mana of all allies by 10% or
  • all allies receive a moderate amount of mana over 4 turns or
  • copies the special skill of one of his nearby allies (random) or
  • copies the special skill of a random target or
  • turns the next enemy special into a mindless attack for the next 3 turns or
  • mimics the latest special skill that was cast or
  • unleashes all enemy team’s passives randomly on the enemy team

This guy does three thing but any of them well:

  • Shared damage has short duration, especially for average speed skill.
  • Defense increase is low (incremental, yes, but still).
  • Healing is low and it’s not even HP boost.

Compare him to Zircon, who has at 2x charge (~Average speed), lower healing but actual boost, slightly higher defense, and shared damage replaced by dispel block, on top of having better stats, much better family bonus, and possibility to fire sooner when for example negation of defense down is needed. Also same color.

No reason to try to pull for this guy.

Not worth it. In some ways the classic is better healing.

Totally not worth pulling/ascending. And that’s great. We need more heroes like that, to preserve the very last pieces of sanity.

I’m genuinely gobsmacked by how bad the costume is.

  • The original is a paladin - which works incredibly well in conjunction with his HOTM bonus (increased defence) and additional defence as part of his skill
  • The original ‘heal with tile damage’ is (from what I remember) a unique, and therefore interesting, skill.
  • The original at least looks half-decent

The costume’s heal is so poor, especially in this day and age. It would have been decent in 2018.
At least make it boosted health.
Or add a small amount of mana.
Or increase mana gain.
Or do what Aeron’s new skill does and remove the negative status effects.
Or block new status effects

Just awful.

Killhare’ll be happy she’s got a carrot buddy though.

If it was even 30% damage reduction then it would be a gamechanger.
I dig the costume though, it’s one of the better designed costumes because it actually looks like what a costume for a hero should be
These are quite old HOTMs, they should have higher quality effects. If they can do it to c Perseus, why not him?

Might it be possible to adjust this poll as well as other polls with ‘hero design’ (awesome, refreshingly new, meh, fail,…)?

We used to go after heroes, collect them, loved them and tried to integrate them in a team.
Nowadays with the abundance of heroes, some of them never leave the bench because they are outdated, some of these are such gems you really have to admire them, keep them in your collection (and use them on easy Tavern-stages😋). The most evident example is Red Hood.

Therefore I think an additional question in your poll might be interesting in order to praise a hero for other reasons than gameplay.

Kind regards


Ok, I can adjust the poll of these new Tavern costumes with this question, and I will add this for any upcoming heroes.

I say c aegir’s design is refreshingly new. It’s a costume that is not within the theme of the hero. In this case c aegir is given a farmer theme which is in contrast with the blue icy stature he has. He gets out of his battle armor and dons on farmer-wear, loose clothing with farming equipment. And he legit looks like he’s wearing a pair of sneakers due to the snow covering part of his shoes and making it look like shoelaces. The hat looks a little bit off though. He’s like a farmer frozen by an arctic spell
I say there’s some thought put into the design of this costume. It’s really nice and one of the better costumes.

I prefer the original in an offensive off color stack. Use him with Ratatoskr and Tarlak and each tile heals for over 700+. Original copy definitely has its uses.


I’m using him on attack and he is great, like a big ice shield for everyone! But on def, that health needs to be boosted and definitely 4 turns.

Look at him and look at M&M… come on.
