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:

Just pulled Toon Leo. Nice Xmas present if it wasnt for a few factors;

  1. I hate Toons.
  2. I didnt have Leo before this, so a ton of work to make him useable.
  3. The game does not give me darts. Had Cleo waiting at 3/70 for months. Long queue of yellows that I cannot work on.

On positive side, you have 4 versions of Leonidas. Some of us have none.


I think you’ll grow to like Toons, possibly, maybe. Congrats


My first ever Toon costume has arrived with my first free pull.

I have the normal and C1 maxed.


Amazing Happy Christmas


I lucked into the triple-Leo, too. Original and costume 2 are at 3/70, behind Vaishali, so I feel lucky to be able to complete all versions of him in time. And while c2Scarlett isn’t all the rage, I hope to find her f2p useful.


Very happy with him since i didn’t have leo to begin with
Oh and i also got my 5th li xiu from costume chamber in less than 4 months :joy::joy:


Do you like them? If so, why? Im not being obstinate, im curious what is good about almost all of the toon costumes? The passives are good, but they only apply to them, so meh. They seem like avg snipers, in a meta where most snipers are awful. It just seems like they don’t do enough in the current meta with characters obliterating your whole team and then healing their team for a % of the crazy high damage, or just launching 12 hits at 200% each. The abilities on these toons just do a fair amount of damage on one character for the most part. Why would you waste money in a portal for one of these? What am i not understanding about them?

For me it’s the simplicity, having the original makes them easy to level, the emblem path is also the same as the original so I love that ease of not having to constantly switch back and forth.

I find their stats (especially heart and shield) good, the attack is great even in defence path.

They’re easy to obtain duplicates, I have loads of aethers so that isn’t an issue, they work great as a team.

I spend a fair amount, not a lot so for me they are v sat.

I’ve been playing a long time and have a great roster which I’m comfortable with right now. I do well in wars and titans and these suit me to the ground as tertiary heroes.

All 3 costumes tend do the same thing but also have differences which can be switched depending on the team I’m going against.

The passive gives them high survivability, they’re like the Toon version of Bear Grylls :grinning:

I know they don’t look great but when I look past that I find their uses useful.


So you beat high level teams with them?

Finally he’s here. After almost 4 years playing I’ve got C1 Leo (alongside with C2 and Toon)

I’m gonna level him immediately and C1 at first because his holy EDD will be welcomed


Sure, they’re really powerful. Did you see that defense with 7000 TP, all toon Heroes? Sartana alone could deal over 1900 damage with a single charge when combined with the right synergy. you’d wipe teams out easily.

Of course, yes

i came up against a team of fully maxed toons recently teampower was slightly above 7000 my god… 7000 i tried 3x & i was only like 4900 died flat in a hurry

Ok, i pulled both of the featured ones without even trying so ill level marjana and give her a try, but im still not getting it. Do they one shot the characters they are attacking, because my only great sniper is torben, because he is the only sniper who is actually killing every target. To me, a good sniper must kill every target he hits (or gain something good for the team from his hit, like Sha Wujing), that is how snipers are measured in the military, confirmed kills. I feel like any team of avg characters leveled up to 7000 team power would be difficult to beat if your team power is 4800. Do you think it would be difficult to beat that same team if they were at 4800 as well? It is ok to say something isn’t great, everything can’t be great or the truly great stuff just looks average. I don’t care for most of the slayer speed characters either. But i will level Marjana or Leonidas or Obokan just to see if they are ok, because on paper none of them appeal to my style of play, but ill keep an open mind. Im leaning toward Marjana, or obokan because i have their originals leveled.

War isn’t won by snipers. You need al kind of soldiers. Artillery ( AOE damage heroes), Engineers ( suppport heroes ), Medic ( Healers ). It’s the combinations of heroes that makes the outcome of the battle. In the current meta of the game no snipers can kill the opponent in one shot, no matter how strong the hero is.

Just maxed this costume. Going to try this one in defense


I wouldn’t really compare this game to the military.

For snipers in the game to one shot it really depends who they are firing against.

I prefer my double hit heroes like Jana and cKullervo especially on taunters.

You need to look more at the big picture in this game nowadays, it’s moved on from one trick ponies, these heroes do other stuff too that is occasionally better than the primary skill.
