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:

This could be a great 3 star, but seeing there’s no three star counter attack heroes, this one falls flat.


You have forgotten about Jing:

I do not recall any other either.

And I have Jing, LOL. Shows how much I use him. Thanks PFF!


Wonder if it will bypass the WOK minion counterattack cards. Li and Jing could be candidates. I see them in a lot of tourneys now LB and annoying

Yeah, that’s a good question. Seems like they are beefing up the 3 star skills to account for newer ones.

He can also be deadly against Gunnar as he will bypass the def up buff but enemies will share the max damage from Dante.


He also bypasses the 2 Gargoyles’ stoneskin.

Might be interesting to use in Gargoyle’s Event Rare


Could be good will level him soonish.


Interesting to note, if you compare him to Waqas they have almost the exact same stats, and Dante’s 3x charge delivers the same 205% hit to all.

I can see where Dante’s defense counter is better than Waqas’ health reduction, but Waqas’ is really only used in rush tournies, and Dante would be useless there. So where exactly does he fit?


That’s an interesting analysis. Quick question, but how do charge heroes (such as Styx, Ninja and Magic) charge during VF tournaments?

Each charge takes 6.5 tiles, so VF events actually slows them down - 6.5 tiles for Dante’s 1x charge, 13 tiles for his 2x charge, and 19.5 tiles for 3x charge.



This attack power looks sick for a rare hero!
