The buff for Marie-Thérèse was needed. I appreciate it. She was to weak bevor (see 🧪 Early Information on New Pirates of Corellia Challenge Event [Part of The Beta Beat V23])
MT actually looks really OP now, especially when compared to a hero like Quintus. Higher attack stat, almost as much damage on the special, plus defense buff, HOT, and regeneration to all?
I liked the MT buff. As a slow mana heroine, your special now has relevance.
Marie looks much better now that she deals damage and isn’t a passive defensive hero. The damage to all is fair as a slow hero (lower than Quintus but considering all extra effects it makes sense), she has high tile damage, and defensively she offers some bite now too (pun fully intended )
So is it looking good that the new event will be next month or still to early on to tell
Finley and Marie-Thérèse have received rebalancing updates, reducing their effects. I’ve updated the top post of this thread accordingly.
I don’t mean to get all sweet on you… but you’re literally the reason I come to the forums… thanks so much for your efforts.
Well thanks! I appreciate the appreciation.
Well he’s not a fast Isarnia anymore, though still a really good hero. -34% is still very significant (see ramming pulverizers and Kunchen).
Needed nerf, and still a good looking hero for offense.
Would like to see Marie with a dot as opposed to direct damage, would give her back her uniqueness (well… not entirely unique as boss does it as well) of wanting to dispel and wanting to cleanse. A 4 turn 300 dot or something would be solid and make the zombies able to stack with it to really make her a lot of fun.
I don’t understand why they don’t update the old heroes. Right now I’m not tempted to summon as almost all the old pirates are crap. I’ve said it before, it would be nice of the devs to start fixing the old heroes instead of continually adding new heroes to fill their pockets. It would bring more variety in defense teams, I’m getting tired of all the same boring Gravemaker/Seshat/Kageburo/Guin stuff. While you’re at it also fix the Guardians, Owl and Kong are very niche/underpowered.
Are we anticipating that Pirates will be back in for October!
Rotation Schedule (2019)
- September: Knights of Avalon
- October: Pirates of Corellia
- November & December: TBA
Yes, as @ChaosWeever noted, it’s been announced: September 2019 Challenge Event [Knights of Avalon] & October 2019 Challenge Event [Pirates of Corellia]
I’m shocked that didn’t register in my brain! I’m sure I must have read that at the time.
Hey Zeph. Will the pirates challenge event have a new format ( or same type a new thing as Avalon) for levels and loot?
Yes, it’ll be updated like Avalon. The top post of this thread has the details as last seen in Beta.
When color stacking, if a zombie is reborn from Marie’s ability with 500 atk & defense does their atk stat only apply to their special, or does it also replace their base atk for tile damage? Ordinarily their base atk is rolled in even when the hero is dead, but would this functionally decrease tile damage?
