🧪 Early Information on ROUND 1 of HoTM Costumes (Round 6 of costumes in general) [Part of The Beta Beat v42]

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 FIFTH round of costumes.


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.

:performing_arts: Costume Bonus

Changed in V36.2 of Beta, the Non-Season 1 Costumes impart a DIFFERENT costume bonus to what is applied to Season 1 Costumes.

Here we have the same costume bonus as the Summer Event Heroes.

Stat S1 CB Summer Event Hero and HoTM CB Halloween Event Hero CB
Attack 5% 3% 2%
Defence 5% 3% 2%
HP 10% 6% 4%
Mana 5% 1% 1%

Costume Bonus Progression:

Stat Tier 1 Tier 2 Tier 3 Tier 4 Max
Attack 0% 1% 2% 2% 3%
Defence 0% 1% 2% 2% 3%
HP 0% 2% 4% 5% 6%
Mana 0% 1% 1% 1% 1%


NOTE: All numbers are presented above are INCLUDING the costume bonus.


:hugs: Family Bonus

The costumes are retaining their family bonus.
The normal and the costume version of a hero is counted as two unique heroes.


:game_die: Summoning

Hero Academy

The new legendary heroes and costumes are added to Hero Academy 10 as a possible result.
So most likely they will be added in the live game too once the new costumes will go live.


:arrow_up: Beta Updates

Balance changes for Costumed Alberich are reverted back.

28 September, 2021

If I read through quickly, I wouldn’t really notice the difference in their specials. All look pretty good as they’re all pretty good today.

The change to Athena is interesting. I feel like this is a downgrade in a way as most people would prefer to use Frida.

I don’t have any. I’ll take any of them. I don’t know why these are the first six. If costume are a thing, start with the bad ones please.

So Drake Fong is going to be an improved version of Dr. Moreau, knowing that Dr. Moreau was a purple and improved version of original Drake Fong… Will we get a costume for Dr. Moreau, in order to make him, in a near future, an improved version of C-Drake Fong ? This madness can go very far.

Alasie and Alberick seems the most threating here, the others not really

So these are just tweaks to their original skills, nothing new basically. However, I like them.

Athena giving regular and elemental defence down at once :open_mouth: Even better for titan slaying.

Alasie reducing the mana and slowing its recovery! :open_mouth: wow, now this will hurt. Regular Alasie giving only the ailment is quite easy to overcome.

Seshat dispelling before hitting :open_mouth: Goodbye Riposters.

Gravemaker burning everything :open_mouth: this is an overkill to me, since the damage is only slightly reduced.

With Drake and Alby it is not quite spectacular. Alby is having more chance for revival but direct mana increase is better IMO. But his new elemental link is superb!

The main disadvantage is that you have to PUUUUUUUUUUUULLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL. If only it would be 20 pulls.

@PlayForFun Do we know yet if the Christmas heroes will definitely be getting costumes?

what is this 1 upping each other between drake Fong and Dr Moreau?
If DF would to, idk give holy defence down to 3 targets, heck their sales will go through the roof.
Meanwhile, Thor weeps in a corner

I imagine they give Athena the cowgirl look

We have not seen them in Beta, but it is almost certain that we will get costumes for them.
(I am not sure which heroes will get costume from that portal)

Thanks as always. :+1:

This is a paid buff. Not creative.

It’s really interesting. For those who don’t have Frida to combine DD and EDD in one hero could be a godsend, and if you’re fighting high titans and Nordri is tough to keep going this could be a great solution.

And they gave her barbarian which is quite interesting by itself. They probably turned her into a full fledged titan killer considering that barbarians are better suited for titans.

They are? Why is that?

High normal damage means higher bleed damage, and it stacks.

I’ve never taken notice since it’s normally a small amount (when I look in raids). How high can it get?

I only use garjammal on blue titans, on a good day she deals about 200-300+ damage. You may think this is quite unimpressive. But bleed is for 5 turns and this is an extra 1k+ damage no talent class other than barbarian can accomplish
