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:

Would he even serve as a tank now? 1) strikes, 2) gets killed 3) resurrects, keeps getting the bleed heals until strikes again…?

Hard to say before seeing him in action, but on paper he sounds as a good tank. Fast, so he’s ready quickly, revive buff that ressurrects him with good amount of health, and healing drain that doesn’t depend on his buffs so even when he revives he keeps draining enemy HP. Also you need cleanser and dispeller to clean up after him. Only his class sucks.

Stealth buff to 260% attack and increased bleed damage to 620


intersting the 260% attack buff makes me really want him 15% more

1 Like

I found the bypass interesting…seems to be more & more of this type special dripping in to the game.

I believe the 620 bleed damage is from the emblems and limit-break. It’s still 528 at 4-80. Still so much better than the base version, which I didn’t even consider in Fated Summon. But definitely want this costumed one.

Unless his buffs are blocked, he can be a tank if there isn’t a better red option, assuming it’s red tank war.

He will be an irritating tank.

Whole body experience :stuck_out_tongue:


Comparing original Tyr with the costume version is just ridiculous. As someone who got the original way back in season 3 it feels like you don’t even have to bother using him without the costume.

  • Costume got more direct damage (because 3-hit instead of 1)
  • Guaranteed bypass instead of 60%
  • Over double the bleed damage PER HIT TARGET (totaling to up to 7 times the original bleed damage per special activation)
  • About 200 hp more healing over 4 turns (if you hit 3, but potentially more if you have the bleed running on 5 targets. Also I am not sure about that but he might even heal from bleed damage dealt through his barbarian talent additionally as per wording of the special)
  • He revives with 40% hp instead of 32%.

His base version might as well be a 4* at this point.


The bleed is not that impressive as you pictured. 620 bleed means he hits 155 bleed to the target every turn. 40% of 155 is 62hp. If he’s hits 3 targets that’s only 186hp per turn, which is okay range for health regen. And this is with max LB and 20. Also if the AI acts stupid and hits a corner, he’s going to heal even lesser
And it probably doesn’t work like how you pictured it. Bleed and bleed heal is different, it will not stack the healing
But he’s still very annoying to face as tank

I’m not saying he’s overall the best costume ever made. Just that he is by far better than the original Tyr. The bleed for the costume may “only” be 155 per target per turn, but that’s compared to 66 bleed damage per target per turn from the original. And the original only applies it to a single target per skill activation. The heal for the original is capped at 137 HP per turn at all times. The costume is already better when he hits 3, but can potentially go up to 310 per turn if applied to all targets.

As I said, it’s not the absolute strength that is ridiculous about this costume, just the relative strength compared to the original.

Does he heal if enemy bleeds, but he didn’t inflict the bleeding?

With magictroop 29 and 19+ talents he heals for 3x 87 hp every turn which is quite nice

Power creep is real… SG was firstly pushing power creep in stats but later they found out, they can push power creep trough specials as well :slight_smile:

His special in current meta is only good, nothing over the top, even though he would be godlike back then, when he arrived. :wink:

i wondering same, example u have 2 c. tyr, one kck left side and another right side, will they both be healed 40 % of all bleed coused, or just that the cause? wondering, can be really tricky synergy

The survivability and bleed can be useful but the 260% dmg seems a bit low these days. Gefjon costume hits so much higher and can confirm kill easier. I hate the opponent having a bit hp left and I can’t throw empty tiles.

When you take out opponent with c marjana + alucard + tetisheri you guess which team will also work !?

Another useless post dear noxy - please check your informations before posting those useless infos noyxking

Not everyone wants to/can do 2000 pulls every portal like you seem to do - so if a player didnt get c gefjon c tyr is also a very nice option in a red 3 stack which you always do praise in your countless posts every day :rofl:

Guess what - even c marjana + alucard + c tyr is enough for your “praised” kill 3 teams :upside_down_face:

You dont get any extra points for “overkilling” opponents you know?! :rofl:

The bleed is over 800 with troops. Using him in offense with 23 mana troops my bleed damage is 201 per turn.
