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:

wow, damage, BT-level attack boost + boosted health for all? that’s a massive improvement over the original.

He’s been sitting at the very bottom of my 4* green heroes to level, but since l lack a Gullinbursti and may never get one at this point, i would absolutely level him up in a heartbeat if i got the costume.


He is similar to golden pig, definetly great 4* worth maxing.


Paladin class suits him too to survive to heal. Great upgrade.



Yeah def a improvement on the original … Vf tournament no red be handy


Looks like baby Heimdall with ressurrection traded for higher attack buff and bit of AoE damage. Not bad.

I fed my original maxed gaderius away!!!

The original was so bad, he was just a waste of roster space.

Now ive to lvl him from scratch if i manage to summon his costume $#!%

This looks like a humongous upgrade over the original hero. Seems very worthy of being leveled up if pulled!

Just pulled him…feeling like it was a lucky pull, I’m new and CTP and this was off of coins saved from moving through Atlantis levels! I’m mainly still working on my 3* bench and soon going in a real way to 4* leveling…I have Triton, Mnesseus, and Melia from Atlantis family and as I’ll likely be doing a mix 3*/4* team for a while I’m thinking clustering some of them for family bonus might be worth it

I haven’t seen any comments on Gadeirus with his new costume…opinions? Reccs?

Pics of his fully leveled up below


Costume version is great, worth embleming and LB.


Yeah I also think he’s a great hero and huge improvement from his original form. Contrary to their original threads, I think the new Gaderius is better than the new Ameonna.


Polls with opinions can always be found in the hero threads


I tested him in Beta and in costume he was really good.
If I pulled him I would level him, give him emblems and possibly even LB him.
It depends how many other 4* healers you have ie Gullinbursti etc.
But he will be good for some of the tournaments


I’d toss my regular Gads if the costume wasn’t a possibility of getting. That said, Buff booster and very fast 4 star tournaments he will be a God.

He’s kinda like c rigard now minus the cleanse in favour of damage. Didn’t realise all the effects are AOE

Anyone have a screenshot of his stats with limit break and emblems on the costume side?

I have had my Gadeirus sat at 3/60 for years, but never find a use for him.
Does anyone have the costume version and use him with it?

Looks good from the card though

Looks like a bit of makeup. But still a makeup. One dispell cancels his whole effect. He shouldnt have damage at all and should have other effect instead.

VF wars and tourn shure, but other than that I can only see him on mono or 4-1 sealing the deal and bringing the comfiness of sure victory.

Other than that with (s)low speed he’ll recover maybe 140hpt and his att is garbage as complimented with poor stats and heal just takes too long, I mean its less than most slash attacks.

So I can only visualise him with Buddy and Almur on team and one more green healer (not overtime) in 4-1 or mono with 5th strong striker. Otherwise recovery takes too long and if he gets dispelled its a bummer.

Edit: He’s a Paladin, so that changes things a bit :grimacing:

If he as average speed he might be more usable.
