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:

Almost doing the same thing as isrod



He looks like Victor’s psychotic brother


Obakan, isrod and ferant defence core. Cut mana for enemies and restore mana for the whole team

Well got him with one of my single key pulls
I already have the first costume at +20
But now not sure which version is best to play him in


I would do both costume versions. The bonus will increased and all versions of Obakans will profit from it.


Actually this is the best version of him….


I also have first costume maxed and LB, and I use him all the time. A boost to stats would be very welcome, so I’ll be likely to pull for him during the event (although I was planning on waiting for the full batch of new costumes to be released originally)

I’ve got him in my very first pull. Now there’s a long way for leveling him and his costumes due to the lack of purple ascension mats. So bad Vivica eluded me


With all the bonuses his stats are really good. Has anyone who had the old costume maxed the new one yet? Please let us know

@JGE Having used and appreciating his original costume, I really think that the damage to 3 + higher counterattack + mana gain is much more useful and impactful for the game outcome


Spot on. He is a better bloody purple clone of one of my favorite heroes.

Isrod is Average
Obakan C^2 is Fast


Isrod as a Paladin does the tanking better than Obakan as a fighter UNTIL the Enhanced Talents arrive and Obakan starts reviving with full mana.

(dare I whisper it? I kinda want Obakan C^2 in my team, he is pretty darn good)


I picked this up as my last pull from my quest keys. I already have Obakan at 80.19 because he was m y first black 5* and lack of options on emblems so I am looking forward to leveling both his costumes. Not sure if he’ll replace Seshat as my main dark hero but he should be good none the less.

I’m trying to find out; how much does “moderate amount of mana” refer to?

Moderate mana is.0.8tile, small mana is 0.4 tile

So once he fired is specialcskill and he is on tank position, than imagine of enemy sends 3 tiles to Obama C2- then he will receive 3 tiles+(0.8*3=2.4tiles) plus manageneration 15% if we have man troops=6.2 worth of tiles and next turn, that is 2 turn after firing special skill, he is again ready to fire,


Pair him with Rhys which reduce holy tiles mana generation, which help him to survive longer

The caster and nearby allies regenerate a moderate amount of mana for each counterattack. This effect gets diminished for consecutive activations during the same turn.

The first mana gain is 0.8 but the next gain will be lessern. So it’s much like 0.8 + 0.5 + 0.3 + 0.1 etc.
