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:

garbage change … makes no sense… she was a little unique but now it is just another copy paste costume


And another costume butchered. She actually looked promising in beta with this.

But they changed it to:

  • Deals 200% damage to the target and nearby enemies.
  • The target and nearby enemies get -56% defense against Nature for 4 turns.
  • Dispels buffs from target and nearby enemies.
  • Element Link recovers 4% health for all Nature allies for 6 turns. This effect can’t be dispelled.

So basically a copy/paste of base Evelyn.

The one hero I was looking forward to here and my excitement is now gone.

Considering that Evelyn has been my white whale for years, I had hoped that I might get her with her costume. But now, I’m not sure I really need her as is.

@Petri Would really appreciate an explanation on why she was changed from a desirable, balanced hero, who could keep up with modern heroes to this copy/paste garbage that offers no value to anyone who already has her.


Very boring, basically just copy/paste from her normal version. Less damage from special but -2% higher defense down…wow :yawning_face::sleeping: She looked so good in Beta


I’m getting tired of these “costumes” that are nothing more than paywalled stat buffs and think it is high time to call for a change.

Revamp Copy/Paste Costumes


This really is just lazy. I love my Evelyn and was prepared to do a few pulls to get her costume with the buff dispel first. Sadly I won’t be bothering after seeing the release version.

I don’t often complain, but this warrants it imho!


The hero card is updated with the changes.

That sums up my opinion as well. Though in my case, I don’t even have her base form. With this being her costume, and cPerseus already on my team, I think I’ll wait for her to show up in Fated Summon or Soul Exchange to finally get her. Not at all worth summoning for as is if I already have Phileas Fogg for titans.

Looks like Aether Power has also changed from Attack Up to Special Boost.

So she doesn’t dispel first on her costume now? That really sucks.

I guess this is both bad news and good news.

The bad - they killed her costume and she’s no longer outstanding other than the CB.

The good - they killed her costume so I can save a lot of $$$ from not chasing her :rofl:


I very much prefer to beta version

Beta: Among a sea of rather poor costumes only Evelyn with priority dispel is decent.
SGG: ok, remove priority dispel from Evelyn. :heavy_check_mark:


Well played SG, you ruined our queens costume. Evelyn was most wanted hero but ok, you destroy her costume and yet heroes like Ferrus get buffed. Just do not get those guys.


exactly! i was interested in this portal because of her and perseus but now it is a pass

i don’t try to pull for 1 featured hero out of 3 especially when the other ones aren’t good.

it is sad that most of the costumes are terrible… only few have actually good costumes (perseus, hel, alaise, Zimkitha, athena…)


I dont understand why they would even bring back the Tavern if this is what they are going to offer. It would be better to run the costume chamber every month.


Disappointing change… was going to chase her… aint happening now…


Lol what a terrible change. Dispel first was golden.
