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:

Rift Lepus: does 280% AoE damage and slows his mana generation
C-Guardian Panther: does 208% AoE damage and debuffs enemy team so hard they’re as good as dead


Will the last 3 costume heroes be available at the same time?

If I get the costume for Panther, I’d still use the original version. Dispel > hit all.

We said in Beta she was overpowered and would be formidable…
I desperately want the costume as it was in Beta ….
But let’s see what SG do with the feedback given in Beta


Hit all pairs well with C Killhare. With -64% EDD, it will be a wipe-out.


I’ve been hoarding my challenge coins for this upcoming portal… all 3 look very appetising, and not for food! :wink:

I wouldnt mind one or two :+1:
Great hero in costume and original form
If you pulled this hero and thinking should i max … The answer is YES


Are they buffing the original version? The version I have hits three only

Another candidate for super-fast nerf in my book, at least on the offensive side he would be one of the best purples, if not THE best.


Ckillhare is avg speed.

And? Easy to make fire her 9 tiles. It’s game over with C Panther + Killhare and 9 purple tiles.


With 23 mana troop, she can fire her special in 9 tiles. I paired her with panther often.

One of the best Costum upgraded heroes, if not the best Costum upgraded hero.

I’ve not seen any other heroes with such great changes.

Y’all know the story


also, Costume Panther is a glass cannon. her defense is in the 600s. She may not have the bulk needed to hang in there.

Yey, with addition of one of the least common thing in game, also high leveled, you can make base hero mostly beginner are using, faster!

One hero does not solve anything in this game. You need to assemble a team and be able to manage the board to win. Otherwise, shout louder about the nerf.
