This thread is to provide early insights and discussion on the initial release of new Knights of Avalon hero called Green Knight
Don’t get too attached
Details from Beta, especially brand-new Beta content, don’t tend to be very reliable for actual release.
It’s incredibly common that features are changed during Beta testing, or sometimes even after testing but before release. That is, after all, the purpose of Beta testing.
So I wouldn’t get too attached to any of this — it’s not unheard of for entire portions of features to be removed or reworked, or for radical changes to functionality to be made.
Knights of Avalon hero
There are a total of one (1) new heroes added to Beta for testing; these have been indicated to be for Challenge Festival I.
*The name of the new hero is: Green Knight
5 – Legendary Hero
Green Knight - Beta Info & Stats (extremely likely to change)
Element: Nature (Green)
Mana Speed: Average
Special Skill: Omen of Retribution
All enemies get -24% defense for 3 turns.
Deals 235% damage to all enemies.
If the caster dies during the next 5 turns, they are resurrected in the beginning of their next turn with 40% health,and 710 damage is dealt to all enemies. All status effects and stacks are removed when the caster dies.
Can be nasty, but is quite easy to counter. So more useful for attack than defence. For kind of kamikaze missions
May be good for killing hordes on MI. The health reduction will be a help for him - he will easier die and make the resurrection damage.
It might only be -24% defence down, BUT here’s the key - it applies BEFORE the damage is dealt… which makes that 235% to all more significant than it sounds.
Also, I have no issues with a ressurection element, even if it can be dispelled (or blocked by Kravekrush)
Nice to see that they even gifted him fighter class too, to pair with the ressurection element of his special skill
Given that CF1 is the only portal I pull in (using offers etc only, no gem buying), and the rest I do with free coins - I’d be really happy to get this guy. I was thinking just yesterday thaat I would love a Ma’at or Frigg for green DD.
I already have Guan Yu, but I find that his use-cases are slightly more “niche” whereas this is certainly more general
This will get nerfed. Perfect tank and if you don’t get this 1 out with tiles, you better have a good amount of overheal. 710 is about 30 to 40% of all the heroes health and that doesn’t include the 500 to all heroes which is worse than KhuFU does at slow
I think that Green Knight is a reference to Monty Python and the Quest for Holy Grail, like Black Knight is. The Green one got killed by Black one before Arthur swooped in and made multiple flesh wounds on him.
Otherwise looks good to me. That resurrection might be annoying but nothing dispel can’t solve. Better be dispel without damage tho because that can kill him by accident.
People are going to sleep on him, but I am really enjoying him thus far. He will be problematic on defense if you can’t dispel (especially with a dispel blocker on his team). The 5 turns for the resurrection buys plenty of time for him to die which is exactly what you want. Even if he fails to die, he is still applying defense down to all then hitting everyone with damage.
Fun and balanced character IMO…thankfully not another Anne!
