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:

First and foremost, this is my debut in commenting on this forum. So: Greetings to everyone! I´ve been reading many many posts in the past few months and decided i want to engage in those discussions now too. I am a C2P player who has come back from retirement in December 2021 (haven`t played for 2 years before that. Currently at lvl35). Pls be kind with me since i still got to learn a LOT of stuff.

I just wanted to add my want and need of this costume for freya, my purples are kind of lackluster and she would fit so perfectly into my roster and especially in my defense.


Freya was already annoying enough and now with dodge and fast???

Why the hell is inari still average ???
Her costume is not better !! Dmg to low minions die to easy to be useful…
Why the hell arent the devs listening to the players ?!

Inari is still not good enough with or without costume…
And the queen of dodge heroes is still kadilen costume…

I cant understand this game anymore andvi play it for a few years now.

I was an avarege spender but reduced it nearly zero because of that crap thats going on.


Freya has 20% less dodge than Inari and 10% less than C. Kadilen…

She did get 1 round more of dodge.

I am not so sure if its worth / would prefer 45% dodge and 3 rounds since it also protects you better vs dispells and such…


Freyas def up was her saving grace a dodge instead means she will die to tiles quicker.


You dont understand the point …she was already good now shes alot better.

Inari costume isnt better and average…often she dies befote she can fire…and minions still useledd

Ofcourse Inari costume is upgrade!

You get unconditionally minions that give you mana each round where before you werent guarantee to even get one + 30% increase in dmg


Yet another purple tank. There’s so many top tier purple tanks one more doesn’t make any difference.


She is a beast!!!


Yeah and the little piggy too!


True fact she is average squishy and relatively less defensive stats than other dodge heros… Even after full defensive path +20 emblem and lb it hardly reaches 800 def…

Single coin pull #20 and she said yes! :partying_face:


@L33tVortex12596 Congrats, very happy for you. Had I had her leveled already I would have chased this one. Did 100 got 2 friggs lol, dupes of course. Cheers, you did great!


Greetings and welcome back - I hope you’ll enjoy yourself :four_leaf_clover::blush:

Omg give me one Frigg please haha. I was hoping to get either Frigg or Freya and instead I got the green healer rat.

@L33tVortex12596 omg congrats, you deserve a good pull like that :partying_face:


Thanks! Wasn’t even trying …just a few pulls for good measure
@Ugk26 …lol…there’s still time
@Kenzo …congratulations ratatoskr is a great titan hero


That’s always how it works, I want the green rat and karnov to complete my tile alteration heroes for titans. If you keep pulling good luck. Btw, this game listens to me I think lol. I complained about no 4* mats in the ascension chests, I got 4 in the 10 I opened. So that helped.


Well that must be nice, a little jelly here…lol.
I’ve been crying about wanting topaz since she came out…lol…this last time was more the 3 mountain of gem chests + offers and no topaz…I got a duplicate jade, mica, peridot and shale. So I suppose I should give up on the tower portals completely…from magic I did get sergi and peridot is good but I don’t need 3 of them …man I wish we could trade our dupes with each other…yeah yeah I know…then everyone would have the same heros and it would be boring…I rambling…see you and @Kenzo in the CF2… good luck!

Just pulled her. My alliance runs purple tank and I have been using onyx. Is the costume version or the original version better as tank?
