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:

I love him and haven’t stripped him from emblems, but he only comes into play when I face LotL or Ruby… I want this costume really bad, but I will not pay for it… Pair hin with M&M, Arco, Rhys, Celidana or another hero of you choice that boost health and he will be annoying again.

So much fun in beta. His costume is what he should have been to begin with.

It’s just a straight up buff for a mediocre hero. I wish they would stop doing that with costumes. Just fix the hero! Also, I appreciate when a costume gives a hero a different ability, making both forms useful.

It’s just a direct buff of the original Baldur. Everything the same, just better numbers. So everything which costumes should NOT be.

Nonetheless, the guy has quite a punch right now. With water piping here and there he could be really handy.

Lucky enough to pull him today… Abilities r ditto same as original with bumped up numbers… In place of giving a fancy costume, they could have fixed him in Nov month’s hero balance!!
Or it is another gimmik to make money??
Anyway I m more than happy :blush::grin:

This is the one hero from Valhalla I want… of course I wont get it. Not going to spend a penny trying though.

Have to admit, my master plan defense described above isnt working well on first day…

Dropped me from 2710 to 2550 cup range…

Guess Baldurs are too busy looking hot than defending :slight_smile:
