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:

30% heal at average speed :upside_down_face:


I really hope they make some changes from beta. Otherwise she will be outdated upon release.


They just gave me more reasons not to pull from this portal

I love regular Delilah. Not sure how I feel about the costume, but I’m remaining cautiously hopeful. Lower heal, but 20% HP is pretty beefy for a minion, isn’t it? That’s effectively 50% for her, and makes her better for bloody battle when she’s only there for her minions anyway.

Though regular fighter talent is better, in my opinion. Well, I’d still be happy to get the costume bonus, if nothing else.


I doubt that. Aeron and Aegir were also mediocre and they didn’t do a thing about them. Also S4 were unchanged despite the outrage about the laziness of their specials, something that also applies here.

And C-Delilah is underwhelming. At Average she heals 30% and summons minions. Meanwhile Diaochan heals 35% and summons only 3 and less meaty minions but at fast speed, not to mention the ability of those minions. Jasper, while slow, heals 1500+ HP to everyone and boosts their offensive prowess. And base Delilah has much better class.

The whole portal sucks. The only decent costume that should be featured is Athena. So no pulls for me, not even free ones.


I noticed regular and costume version has the same 2LB power. Is this intended?

Probably partly reason for lower values than other heroes is hero academy… thats why S2 remains mediocre as well…

Its like we are pulling tons of costumed NON S1 heroes from portal and they have to keep our strenght at bay :slight_smile:

This costume is also unchanged. Polls are now enabled for this costume too.

Got her from a coin pull today.

Can’t say I was too excited to summon her, but given all the dark tanks running around in wars another average speed holy healer is welcome for depth. I’ll slow level her and imagine she’ll get mats eventually…unless I get lucky and pick up Zuri or Cleo.

Just pulled this heep of ■■■■ - what a shame.

Gee, guys, you’ve just taken this hero from certifiably crap to… certifiably crap, wtf is this - why bother? Lol…

Do you reckon you could actually make this hero useable @Petri?

They have to give minions a special ability like dispel the buffs or something like that. Just giving 2% or 3% more won’t change anything

This costume, let alone hero is such a joke it’s embarrassing - who the actual hell would want to pull this crap?

Ariel is also average speed and she heals 8% more, cleanses all, and gives a mana buff to all and she’s over 3 years older LOL - let alone that fact this costume is meant to be premium and hard to get, stupid.

I pulled this crap… :rofl:

You’re certainly entitled to your opinion, but spamming the thread with your hatred of the hero? That’s a bit much.

She effectively heals the team by 54% and using the LB2 HP listed above, her minions will have a little over 500 HP. And she has a passive cleanse. She may not be the best healer but she’s far from the worst.


She’s awful, get a grip - no one is spamming anything, I’m replying to people.

Her costume’s card now contains the March balance update.
