🧪 Early Information on New Starfall Circus Heroes [Part of The Beta Beat v38]

NOTE: Please do not, under any circumstances, share IMAGES OR VIDEOS from Beta in this or any public Forum thread. Violations can cause players to lose their Beta accounts, or threads to be closed down.

This thread is to provide early insights and discussion on the initial release of the Starfall Circus Heroes (new Challenge Event).


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.


New Challenge Event – Starfall Circus!!

This thread is SPECIFICALLY for discussing the new heroes and NOT the new Challenge Event.To discuss that, please make use of this thread: 🧪 Early Information on New "Starfall Circus" Challenge Event [Part of The Beta Beat V38]

Repeat, DO NOT use this thread to discuss the new challenge event…

For a 3*, Candy looks incredibly powerful.

Other than that, some interesting new skills there, like healing the most injured or debuffing the strongest enemy.

Emilio looks pretty broken.

But… still not happy about this alternating with Teltoc. If they’re going to do that, please make some other elemental defense down heroes accessible.

I know they won’t… but this really screws newer players.

  • Emilio and Gravey are gonna set everything on fire, everything.
  • Eichelborg is gonna be great as a green tank buster in a red stack
  • Candy is basically a 3* yellow Raffaele minus the clenase
  • Whacker will be great against blue snipers in 3* tourneys

Yo, Emilio IS pretty devastating as is, hope he gets tweaked down a smidge.
Kingston’s stock just took a slight bump upwards (and other burn resisters).

The alternation with Toltec MAKES so much bottom line sense for SG I’m surprised they havent done it sooner. The longer they can dangle the carrot of G. Jackal, Falcon, and Panther the better.

D’Andre will be a nice four star Holy healer to make up for not getting Lady Woolerton. Interesting ability to flip defense down. In most cases I’d rather just have the generic cleanse.

Eichelborg is who I’m most excited for to give titans -54% defense. Can also be used to set up a 1-2 hit with Marjana to snipe a hero off the board.

Marcel: meh. Does a lot of damage to 3. Helps cleanse attack debuff. Just not sure I’ll put him to use too often.

Rare
Candy gives us a 3 star holy healer that will be nice for three star tournies.
Whacker I’ll just use as a fast sniper I guess and take the attack down as a benefit? I’m not sure I’ll use Whacker over Berden (with cb) though.

Overall interesting new mechanics. These partially cleanses and flips to a buff always seem too niche at first glance. I wouldn’t rely on it but it will be nice when it happens.

Lovely heroes. Once again, a high paywall barring us from getting them. Good luck, everyone.

4* and 3* will surelly get nerfed right? They are in 5* S1 zone and even stronger than current S4 4* heroes …

I actually like designs of these new heroes overall, just numbers needs to get tweaked

Would really like Bobo

I am going to have a hard time remembering what all the specials do once we are in raid and war environments.

That said, I really like some of the new mechanics. Will be beastly to play against some of these but this adds a slew of new gameplay which has a lot of value to me.

It may be like the Ninjas: I will suffer at their hands, lose to these extremely powerful heroes and yet be glad there is a new mechanism in the game.

Now i wish I didn’t burn so many gems on today’s event.

Clowns and clown minions tho… What a nightmare.
I like new heroes but some of the artwork… Shudders

A 3 star Holy Hero Healer!? I want it!

These clowns are nice and all, but with how OP the s4 heroes are, i wonder why anyone would bother summoning in any portal other than s4 portal

5 Likes

Emilio is more OP than any S4 released so far

Well I collect coins from last teltoc and will use them here.

Because there’s a group of players that will summon for new heroes no matter the cost.

Plus, you know, free pulls.

@Guvnor cut and paste error in OP.

Emilio must be nerfed.

That being said, interesting heroes that will demand strategy to play which is nice.

Their stats are a bit too high as well but considering how s4 are… they’re not absurd.

Eiora & Fluffy shouldn’t reduce that much health too. Although that can counter Bera a lot…

Their artwork are lovely, specially Bobo. He also made Quintus and Isarnia (even with costume) looks like two big piles of crap even more.

Theobald looks like Mitsuko and Ursena’s Ice counterpart, with his Nature reflect skill. Interesting :sunglasses:

I assume that’s Director Zuri, Emilio, and Whacker in the sneak peek image. Is there somewhere else you can see the art for the rest of the new heroes?

It’s a bit painful to see there are 30 to 40 points of difference in power between these heroes and the ones we have at the moment in grimforest, at least the legendary ones.
Emilio seems a bit too much, Candy the one i’d like to have the most (yeah the 3* :rofl:).
4* (the best i could ever hope to get from events) don’t impress me much (Shania please forgive me). D’andre the only one i would chase: nice healer and counter to Tiburtus and his Starfall Circus costume ( :see_no_evil: :see_no_evil:)
Nice to see new mechanics involving base stats of enemy heroes, could turn out quite interesting.
