Seeing the standard of the S4 costumes, Just be grateful that this one is at least somewhat different with the health regen

It’s actually quite a decent jump, have never seen a costume have an extra skill that differs from the original. It’s a nice one even though 411 is a little too low. A fighter healer, immediately annoying to fight against. A lot more tankier with the heal and bulwark 2LB. We haven’t had a DD healer since kunchen (or maybe I’m missing someone else), so it’s a welcome

I know that he’s working differently, but one of the newest (?) heroes who deals damage AND heals is Chomper.
But his heal is depending on the dealt damage.

Edit:
Sorry, with DD you probably meant defense down, not damage dealer.

I’ve always liked using morel, and this new added skill is a nice little plus. Not however a fan of having to pull this guy out of the portal all over again :roll_eyes: cute and effective.

The artwork is sooo adorable - do you like it?

Not going out of my way to pull this dude, I’ll take him on a free pull but why do we have to pull the new costume at all, why can’t they buff the older heroes without this costume BS.
Pretty soon there’ll be like 10 different costumes per older hero and we’ll be up to 10 limit breaks.
Wonder what the player base will look like at that point. Very short sighted GREED if you ask me.

I like the concept, but the execution just doesn’t feel like it’s all there for me on this one. Firstly, it’s great that they added a new concept to differentiate the costume, and hopefully we can see more of this going forwards!

My only concern now is that it feels like Morel does 3 things, but none of them particularly phenominanly. That being said, -34% DD to all at fast speed is certainly no joke and not something to be be underestimated. If anything, lowering the damage a little makes me feel slightly less apprehensive if I am betrayed by bad boards :joy:

I feel like he’s similar to Ma’at with the -34% DD at fast speed, but he does 50% less damage for the additional heal to all allies :thinking:

The first hit will be stronger with her passive, but weaker than the original by 5% skill damage.

Not really sure what to think about this one.

Immediate impression though is that I am thrilled to see an S4 costume that isn’t just an ever so slightly tweak of the base form. This is certainly more interesting to me that what we saw in beta.

Having said that, I am not sure this is quite enough to be compelling, and I really wish it had been beta tested rather than having this change come out of the blue.

Individually most parts of his special underwhelm.

  • 145% to all at fast speed is very low in the modern game with even very fast heroes doing more.
  • -34% defense for 3 turns however, is still in line with others, notably Ma’at.
  • 411 HP/3 turns comes out to 137/turn. While this does seem a bit on the low side, this is also off of fast speed.

All in all, I see one relatively strong skill and two weaker skills. So I am on the fence about summoning for him and will likely just wait for cZenobia to be released and featured as I had originally planned.

This health regen really came out of nowhere, it feels like a random skill being slapped onto it
And ironically, with all the S4 costumes being buffs behind a paywall. This is the one hero they touched and reworked :person_facepalming:t4:
Original costume -44% DD at fast, so essentially a fast isarnia. People would pull for a fast isarnia

Personally I am glad they did not go the fast Isarnia route. Given the heavy hitters we have on defense, I would prefer to not see fast AoE defense droppers exceeding the current -34% defense drop.

And given my heavy reliance on healers on offense, he looks intriguing to me. Not quite enough to change my mind about waiting for cZenobia to get a costume, but enough that he would be a priority after that (because I already have base Morel maxed and this would be a cheap upgrade).

How would he do with Quintin?

I don’t think I will be leveling Morel. I would rather save the mats. I was excited to pull him and his costume, but I think 145% is just too low. He won’t do anything against the meta. Maybe if they could bump his damage to 230%, which is still way below most fast hereos

Now with legendary troops, I will level Morel to help with the new fast blues. :slight_smile:
