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:

Who is this for? This heal is unacceptable in today’s meta. What is this tarlak tier healing appearing in 2023?


Wow, no changes to that health regen, that is really bad. Also the mice minions are worthless, 20% both stats. You know who does that already, bera at fast and 5 minions, this is average to 3, And those mice minions can miss at times.
Could this be the contender for the worse costume they came up with?


The hero card is updated with the changes. Polls are enabled.

I’ve just pulled him snd his costume… I think he’ll be serviceable but barely. Mainly because I have lots of other decent minion summoners to use him with (Set, Devana, Lotl, Frosth) and if you didn’t have much of a good minion team he wouldn’t be worth much. Don’t think much of his powers or stats, pretty sad healer really, just released and already needs a buff!

Just to make sure I have it right, the other minion summoners summon one of their own type of minions, correct?

Yes, one of their own type of minion


Most like just for buff booster tourneys.

Same old, with a little tweak…. Low defence for the costume….


Are Druids considered minion summoners (through their talent) ?

As I recall no they aren’t.
Just those heroes are minion summoners, where it is stated in their skill.


I got him and I like it. Not for costume though, because the base version heals more (and I don’t have even base puss). But with that insane stat boost from costume bonus he’ll be useful, especially with other summoners.

Also he’s the only 5* rogue healer in my team, so finally someone for Trials of Survival.


Well, to his defense,
he has 60% hp with 3 mice minions on himself, which makes him very very durable… then there is also healing and fighter talent :slight_smile:

I agree, his skills could be updated more and change something… red buffers are all about attack up…would be nice for something else…

Also, one thing about PIB is that he also indirectly cleanses any fiends away from him


Recently nabbed this hero. Disappointed is an understatement. Might take him to 3/70 and leave him there. Could be good with Queen of Hearts in a red stack though :thinking: Meh, I’d prefer to finish Azlar and both costumes first… Then Mitsuko… Khagan…R&N, Zagrog, Tahir, Tyr… Yeah, PiB might be waiting a while

Just one gamer’s opinion

Game Well :sunglasses: :mechanical_arm:


No, I’ve just tested PnB with cMagni


Pulled i have no 5* red healer so ill max … (plus got boat load of rings) I have a few other minon summoners aswell … I can make use of the cat :scream_cat:


Just thought of a fun use for PnB. Stack her with Aradia and Carmenta, then Jove or Fortuna plus a healer.

All the reds are average speed and when PnB fires the Masked Gods get a minion and therefore ailment immunity as long as the minion lasts.

Nope doesn’t work like that. The only minion summoner for masked gods is cel
