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:

I think he’s okay. Not must-have or game-breaker but his damage is nice, DoT of top is also nice and the fact he hits most revivers also helps. And that stone-generating family bonus, of course.


First pull from earned coins:


Congratulations! Awesome pull… I wouldn’t mind getting this guy for an offensive team

I also got him on my first pull! V excited to try out my first elemental.

Thanks, I think he will perfectly fill my red Sniper spot and I think he will work pretty well with Kravekrush against green reviver.


I feel this guy is kind of like a better D’art in a way.

If you can find and play against a mono green def then yes…

In any other case absolutely not


That’s when salmon Loki sneakily changes some of the enemies to green :smiling_imp:


Got him from free coins (my hoard). Still think that his use is limited to situations with stacked greens.

Without enemy greens, he just a better marjana with addition red zappy tiles. But with greens, he’s a kinda better D’art

Am I the only one who likes this guy? But I’m not bothering with him as I don’t have the salmon

I got him (on my second pull in fact). I think he’s similar to D’Art, maybe a little weaker. But I’m excited to level and use him! He’d be a good flank to a strong blue tank (of which I have none).
The art is disappointingly simple, undetailed, if I’m being critical.

I have Norns at 1.01. Can’t imagine trying to find 9 tiles for her to fire Doxan.

Looks good at 85 +20. (Not mine… yet)


Doxan seems like the Marjana of the current day. If power creep had been normal speed! As such seems a little average. Still pondering to give mine rings or not.

I’m wondering about the troop strong damage modifier. It says this hero’s troops do 100% more damage to (the weaker element ie) green enemies.
His special does 500% to target and (minor ie) 250% to all green enemies. With the troop modifier does this mean green enemies get effectively 500% damage?

Hey there! Did you spend the rings? I’m contemplating the same thing. There isn’t much information or talk regarding this guy. I’d hate to spend the mats and end up with a dud. Seems a powerful sniper. I like the super elemental value! But I’m thinking maybe just an average hero? :man_shrugging:t2:

I know he’s sniper which isn’t necessarily the best in this meta, but I’m a big fan. Hits HARD. He pairs well with the Hippo on a rainbow team and fits with Khufu on a red stack.
