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:

So the new card/costume that you have to pull in order to access is a hit-all Onatel.

Now I wonder…

Will the new card/costume for Onatel
be a hit-all Hel?

I like the original hero…I think I’ll really like this one costume but not sure if I want to spend on getting her…it is such a bummer when your efforts are futile by chance…
Crossing fingers and hopefully we can see her come through the portal … good luck everyone who is pulling for her!!!


Loving how this is not just “warning it’s just a prediction” anymore but a straight thank you now :kissing_heart:


All enemies can’t gain mana for 3 turns. Everyone will quit this game


Nah… people will spend $3,000 to get it.


Should see some defences with multiple copies of C Hel within 2 hours of C Hel entering life game.

Good morning, There are no costumes bonus? the statistics that appear in the portal are the same with and without costume

It’s weird, doesn’t even look like it’s considered a costume in the portal.

My luckiest single pull ever, so happy! I was dreaming about her for years!

Surprised by people believing she could be a good tank. She is average and her 2017 stats are so low, even with the costume bonus
I will test her in that position tonight and will report the résults here


She’s just crazy OP on offense. Once she fires, she will charge over and over again. Onatel is charging like crazy while being only target and nearby, but her giving this ailment to everybody is just too much. Definitely a material for a YT movie with Hel + Healer vs. rest of the world.


The reason why her stats haven’t changed is because the costume bonus is hidden behind the max power preview button

My initial impression is Costume Hel is crazy

Reduced my time limit for the game app from 2h to 1,5h yesterday but after they released perseus and hel like I’ve further moved it down to 1h.

This thing is just not reasonable to play anymore. :rofl::rofl::rofl:

I had 47 tokens and Hel has been a hero I have long sough after. I got her on the 4th pull and super excited. I wanted the Perseus costume which adds another 14% EDD against blue compared to Frida/King Arthur/Nordri but this portal has never been nice to me. I am super happy with my Hel and her costume!


Got her on my first pull. Did 40 more and got another Morax. Very happy with her and I could use the feeders.
