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:

Attack on 3 is terrible for her. Maybe versus a diochan, but there will be so many bera and freya minions just out there hanging out on the wings. I’ll take the costume bonus… But hard pass on using costumed skadi over original sladi.


I think the hit 3 is much better due to higher damage (both attack stat and attack damage). The stack still says all enemies, so the hit 3 has a higher chance at applying stacks as the normal version damage is too low for some minions.


But… When you kill the tank… Suddenly it is an attack two… So half as effective.

I love skadis hit all if i ever get her costume dependant on what team im versing id be inclined to just use costume bonus over hit 3.

Ditto. If it is an event… And there are only 3 defenders… Yeah… But when it comes to clearing minions… Regular.

If costume skadi had a mechanic like captain of diamonds or Finley… Where it could still hit all at higher damage… Yeah… That’s be great…


That would be a much more fun version I think

Definately i mean most costumes just alter the skill a little this one changes it a bit more. Other than some that increase the number of targets at reduced damage but adds more ailments.

This costumes main change is hit 2 less for more damage no additional ailment changes.

Slightly more mana reduction and frost damage.

696 vs 770 attack stat is a significant difference as well. Too bad the original version did not have this kind of damage, and with the improved stack benefits, I don’t see how the original is better

Most raids i can get a 5 stack 1 hit from skadi a few exceptions with some of the tougher minions.


My presumption… She now can kill 3 bera/freya minions without a attack up our defense down… So she kinda is a buff upon herself in that regard…

But… If you have Krampus, or use either kiril versions, you can get 5 dead minions and 5 sets of stacks.

I think Hulda and noor’s are still too strong without chopping them down a bit.


Skadi, both versions, can acheive max stacks early on if you pair her with Guan Yu


With full attack and LB, she now hits like a truck. She’s more suitable for def team IMO.

Attack, then def… Then maple syrup.

Awwwg… i ran out of maple syrup… :face_with_diagonal_mouth:

If someone has both costumed and regular Skadi, what would happen with Skadi damage and mana down stacks coming from costumed and non-costumed version? Will they add, or they will be separate stacks? Can it be possible to achieve -100% mana generation?
