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:

There is no change on the costume. Polls are enabled.

From Beta thread.

Costume Zenobia — Beta Info & Stats (extremely likely to change)

Rarity: Legendary/5*
Power: 918

Attack: 944
Defense: 837
HP: 1636

So it appears there has been a substantial change.

She is one of my titan mainstays, would be delighted to summon her costume, would improve the attack stat and maybe even allow her back into the PvP battles more regularly. She didn’t join my team until well after her heyday and yet I still adore her.

She really sets up the reds in a red stack so she would be very welcome back into the PvP realm. The extra HP are needed vs today’s monsters in raids/wars and the slightly improved attack stat will always be welcomed on titans even though she remains far below current meta monsters.


Think it’s probably because of the way it’s been formatted. The stats +1 costume look the same to me.



@Ripobin_The_First has the correct answer.

The Beta beat topics are containing the 1x Costume bonus numbers as it is stated.

The numbers in biggers letters are the base number before any costume bonus.
Technically you will not encounter these numbers in the game for costumes.


@Ripobin_The_First @PlayForFun

Thank you both - clearly I hadn’t had enough coffee at the time :coffee:


The costumes being basically a copy of the original card makes them pointless. Why are they doing this?


Per the transition from Zenobia to C Zenobia, it’s officially shoulder season :sunglasses: :sun_with_face:


This is literally her balance patch but we have to pay for it


Giving Zenobia extra damage against boosted is a nice perk, even if the base special is just a buff on her original.

I’ve been saving coins to chase this, but I’m going to wait until there’s another featured legendary I’m interested in.
