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:

320% and minor to nearby at fast nowadays??? No way, he will be released like that :slight_smile:

Ceto does higher dmg to all, So does Jove etc, not just to three…

It’s just a costume, they don’t care

hahaha, they even nerfed numbers :DDD

even if he charged in 3 tiles (twice the speed of very fast), he would be only average good :smiley:

Disgraceful and distasteful costumes for Evelyn and Musashi… Eve always had priority dispel in beta abd she lost that too,… How do they plan on getting money from this portal if newest tavern heroes are below average to current weaker heroes? Right next to them is Perseus who was made correctly…

It’s crazy how they made c Perseus really well and within one batch just turn the new ones into crap. It is made by a different dev team?


Well, thank god anyway… No need to spend a cent for them :slight_smile:

Well, another disappointment. Yet another copy/paste costume for a hero that desperately needed something different to be viable.

I think it’s time for a change to this approach to costume design.

Revamp Copy/Paste Costumes


It seems the skill is released as unchanged.
Polls are now enabled.

I thought they were going to revamp this entire event which means better stages and better quality costumes. But nope, horrid quality as usual


Yeah, after the “The Tavern is closed for renovations”, I opened the game expecting to see a new story, maybe some additional rewards, more stages and perhaps slightly improved pull odds. (I can dream).

I see no changes and they’ve butchered Evelyn’s costume and decided Mushashi is desirable as is.

/Slow clap


I was expecting 15 stages this time round and we must use 75 heroes

Just a precision: He does not heal immediately, but absorbs health from regular (tiles, slashes) damage for 5 turns.

And he’s still meh.

“Meh” is extremely generous lol.


I got him today. Really want Evelyn, even if her costume is meh.

I’m currently levelling my second c White Rabbit. I’m trying to make an argument in my mind that c Musashi may be worthwhile to pair with Rabbit. But I think Norns from FS might be better despite the speed difference…

Also did get this piece of trash

Only thing where he shines is that you can make him 6 tiles very fast - just like c perseus

But he still sucks lol just compare his damage to jequn or horus which are regular very fasts

He’s pretty much comparable to Grimm’s first costume I think. Not that impressive.

Why “Empires, Puzzles and Gem Pop Up ads” bother with this laughable costumes, is not beyond me. They don’t care. They’re too tone deaf, they won’t even bother to see the negative result of the survey.
Meh! :unamused:

The latest Heal on damage done heroes heals everyone and has a strong secondary effect (Aramis, Sha Wujin) and deals a fair share of damage.

Musashi’s only perk is being a 5* to be used on Soul Exchange wich is generally better than increasing the Fated Summon’s counter by 1.

Have you changed your mind on Musashi Costume? Do you want him just for collection purposes? Or do you have some combo you want to use him with?

I’m still trying to make an argument for levelling him… C2 Joon jumped ahead for now (had original levelled)
