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 would use some pulls on him. He seems decent now. I like the high HP.

I have base Perseus at +15 and use him pretty regularly. This new version is essentially identical with now a massive EDD at fast speed. That percentage drop is so big I don’t see how he isn’t chased.

Factor in you can’t just heal unless you cleanse first and he can wreck your day.

Talk about from worst to first.



I’m gonna chase him. I need an blue EDD hero better than Nordri


I would like to have him to pair with Athena for the double hit 3 plus DD and EDD and the family bonus. Have yet to get a 5* from tavern, which is understandable with the abysmal chances. Maybe I’ll luck out with a few pulls here

He’s even better. That heal blocking can’t be cleansed.


Ha, duh. In costume he goes from the only blue HotM hates more being Klaern to a prime hero.

does 10% mana for 4 turns means each turn gives 10% or each turn gives 2.5% mana?


@mogulemon it is +10% mana generation for 4 turns.
So it is not a direct mana gain like Xnolphod.


Aah now i understood, i thought it was immediate mana boost like xnol :rofl:

If it takes perseus 5 years to be good, klaern would take 10 years? :thinking:


Just need the costume :upside_down_face:


And he came after 29 pulls :partying_face::partying_face::partying_face::partying_face: got the cyber offer :upside_down_face:


Perséus, and perséus C Have the same stats?

My very first 5* from a time when I didn’t even understand this game ^^ it was worth to keep him


It looks strange or like mistake but yes

On a side note, did SG made a mistake. That is a very generous offer.

Took me 14 pulls to get him, thnx to great cyber monday offer.
Great titan hero.


I see it’s still there, I am sure by now it would have been corrected just as it happened during springvale two years ago with the Ham. It is a nice offer, however not off the roof though, the 30 pulls offer on the last day of the event does not differ much in price.
