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:

Another buff disguised as a costume. Just throw 10 cubes, how hard is it to change the coding?

Alfrike always looked like a badass villain IMHO. This costume’s art seems so demeaning. :laughing:


She got fashion sense from Elizabeth


Damn is that costume ugly. For that reason alone I’d stick with base, Status Immunity or no.


Costume looks like a pimp get-up


It’s a lazy costume. I’m not going to summon this time

Hey all. Its been a while lol.
Still playing, but just. I see this big bad beast has just been given a costume!!! Wow, yay, woopeee!
Ive actually come back to say - Where the hell is the Big Bad Wolfs Costume?? :face_with_monocle::face_with_monocle::thinking::thinking:
Come on! Give the old boy some love :heart:. Enough love that he over powers all these new heros that most of us dont have!? :rofl:
How about still keep him very slow but deals 500% to all. Game over :boom:, silly idea i know, but buffing Freaky with a costume is also silly!
Chur :blush:

The costume has arrived without any change on the Special Skill.
Polls are now enabled.


She looks like a rich madam. Her class is good for her role, But such a lazy costume as rest of them in the portal except Sif. This portal has been off my list for a long time and will continue to be ignored.

And it sticks out like a sore thumb :roll_eyes:
Maybe she should be in S4 portal, not S3…

Powerfull and now very sturdy lady! Her special should be about dark hats instead of dark cudes. Whoever gets a hat from her… bad times ahead!

Someone care to enlighten me what’s new? As a avid Alfrike user I’ve no ■■■■■■■ clue what they changed (beside maybe some numbers, but for that I would have to compare them line for line) but the overall skill is identical.

The image is new.
And I think, that future secondary costume will be with butterfly wings, like C2 Kadilen…

Costume looks like she has an appointment with Queen Anne…

New makeover, higher stats and a better class. Same skill


This costume is quite tanky though. She gets around an additional 147 defence with paladin class.


Her 2LB ability blocks status effects… so along with being tankier, she can’t be stopped from firing in rush using ailments. Wow…


I would counter and say: She just got better in at least 3 different ways!

Better stats: Tons of def, so she´s harder to kill
Better class: Again harder to kill
And most of all: Alpha power ailment immunity means that about half the counters against her become useless!
Even the lower attack stat has been compensated for by higher base damage. So she doesn´t even loose damage. The only marginal cost to all those buffs is a lowered max HP reduction (and really who cares???)
