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:

Still not impressive. Make it fast and there’d be a good use for this hero.

They used to make costumes that made older heroes relevant again, but now it seems they’re just slightly improving their stats and abilities, which doesn’t help. I still can’t find a way to make use of this character.

wasn´t there supposed to be a new passive with poison damage or something like that?

Confirmed this is the case with the live version :slight_smile:

I do think with the costume bonus, water damage and poison from passive he’s a viable card now, even if not a game breaker?

The polls are now enabled. The hero card has arrived without any change.

The passive skill is still missing from the post though I think? Also since this is a passive for all Pirate Costumes, may be worth checking their posts as well :slight_smile:

Yes, I noticed then when I have updated Lady Locke.
I will add it later today.

The other costumes miss the exact number I will set them too.

The DoTs are weak though. Combined, the water damage + poison do less than 200 damage per turn over 4 turns, which is not a lot against most modern heroes with 2000+ hp. I suppose you can use that against mid-tier or weaker teams without a cleanser or ailment immunity. Maybe combine that with fiends and you’re getting somewhere.

The -100% to healing needed to be uncleansable to be of any use, like Perseus - not good still.

Sargasso speed should go to fast to get any use

Sargaso-so… Not bad but not good. Just kinda so so. If you have him leveled the costume improves his stats and it’s better than the original. The one I got

If we were to have this costume 2 years ago, all of us would scream: OP, THIS HERO IS OVER POWERED!!

Now, we complain the hero is weak. The hero is only weak when we compare it to the nowdays OP heroes.

The release of more and more overpowered heroes is the issue, not his costume.

Unfortunately his costume has to play against the heroes of today. A bit late to the party

As well as the match making algorithm in this game. If you have newer heroes and are in the mid diamond league, you will get matched against 3000+ TP defense teams most of the time, against whom this hero is unusable. It’s always a bit over your own level, rarely below. Same thing in tournaments. In most games I prefer to level up for the purpose of overpowering my enemies, but in this game that sadly only happens in alliance wars for me, making it the only content worthwhile.

415% to the target and half to nearby ones, and with its water and poison damage it is very good, remembering that the fantasy makes it go at a fast speed just by placing a level 5 mana troop.
