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:

Would love to get her. R&N can gain extra mana for 6 turns through her e link, on top of viselus’ poison heal


Very clever thinking about synergy even before hero released :slight_smile:
Tho she hits very low, not a hero can be used on defense well. I see her as “Improved Zeline”.
Actually i like Costume Ares more and you can clearly keep your R&N alive with C.Ares with boosted HP.
Anyway, im gonna pray and use my two free summons in this portal to get any of the featured heroes :smiley:

I don’t have the original Zimkitty so I can’t compare the new costume other than speculation. I think the costume looks like a nice little buff on paper but I think I’ll wait and see before making a decision…
Good luck in the portals everyone!

One of R&N’s passives gains mana whenever she heals


So she’s a fast version of Caitlin?


Thanks, I missed that :slight_smile: Great couple then

It would be a miracle to pull her lol. I still remember pulling her original using 1 EHT i think it was all those years ago. If it’s meant to be it’s meant to be…


Her attack buff got me throught alot of raids back in the day. I like thay she dispells but wish she also had an attack buff!

glad she got buffed after the release.
i hope i get her

Starting damage increased to 180%, which makes her quite good!!!
Only problem here is i will only have two free summons :rofl:

Priority dispel. This one would be nice to get

Not only that, max cap AOE has increased to 360%. 360% at fast, although with conditions. But in this raid scene where buffs are coming out left and right, this is easily achieved. It’s just 12 buffs for max damage.
