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:

My fingers (and toes) are crossed for this one, actually mainly for the stat boost for original version :smile:


Finally will level up for helping out the enemy dark😈 tanks😈


Should have stopped on my second pull, considering the 18 after this did not provide anything lol


Does she only reflect damage & ailments from dark special skills or all?

Consider the reverse Ursena. same mechanics but opposite colour


I pulled her and Green Knight on tokens. The knight looks like a great tank. Im not seeing the what they did with Guin for a defense. I see her as an offensive healer vs a team with a couple of purples and she will shine there


Yeah! Guin’s comeback


She and jequn will be freaking annoying on defence


Oh no, her special is just a slash attack :sob:

Wow did not know what you meant untiI just ran her doing some farming… hands down one of the worst special animations I have seen.

Maybe it’s the same bug as with Fenrir’s costume? Somebody who has her should report this.

the quality is going down with every release.

they did this mistake several times ir is a surprise to see it continue (roc c, perseus c, … etc)

The most regal and graceful animation reduced to a slash attack. It will be patched back anyways


What synergy are you thinking of?

Happy gaming

(Reviver), Jequn flank, aramis, (attacking flank), guin wing. I cannot fathom the thought of ever putting guin on the wings, like the world has been whacked upside down

guess I have some heroes to work on now…


Got her! My poor 4/80 Guin (my first fully levelled 5*) needs to dust off her armour. And Zeline will need to take her place on the bench. (Emblem swap party!)

Edit - thinking long term, a Ma’at / Meresankh / Ludwig / CGuin / Serandite team would be fun on defence

Edit edit or a 3-2 Meresankh / Ludwig / cGuin / Karnov / Neith
