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:

I’ve decided as the chances of getting a 5* are almost impossible I’ll be happy with what I do get.

Used my gems and was actually quite pleased.


Which version would be better of her? Costume or non costume?


The only difference is +36% crit chance vs -25% accuracy.

I prefer costume as I like fighter more than Druid.

Depends on what you’re using it for. I would prefer the crit for titans, but would prefer the blind if I were in a tourney for example.


Second this, costume if placed on defense and no-costume for offense


Agree. Costume is built for defense. Regular Melia is built for offense.


I disagree, the distinction is not as much between offense and defense as it is between tourney types. Regular version is best in buff booster, while the costume is best in bloody battle. At least that´s how I use them and I use the same version on offense/defense.


Have costume and base maxed +20, get the family bonus when running both. Add in Mneusses in same deal and you have 4x for family bonus.
Works in the right tournaments

Are you sure you get the family bonus for a costume and regular version? I would have assumed them to be considered the same hero, but I don´t know either way, just wondering.

Can confirm you do get costume bonus if you use an original with a costumed version, they are considered different heroes in a battle :grinning:


Just pulled her today, and this is what I was thinking :slight_smile:
