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.

Baldur looks like he’ll be a good support hero but is there a duration on the boosted health? Just asking since the 2nd and 3rd parts of his special skills are contingent on the caster maintaining boosted health for effect duration.

Skadi seems underwhelming but if there truly is a Telluria surge with minions running rampant I can see where he would shine a bit more (but a cap at 30% - mana generation seems too poor for slow mana speed).

Nope, it’s not a status effect. It lasts until sufficient damage is taken to eliminate it.


Keep in mind that Stacks are permanent effects with no duration.

Skadi will get to the end of Quest/Map Stages, and give all Bosses -30% Mana Generation permanently, unless killed.

I like all the new DOT coming into the game recently

To confirm then, you’re saying stacks can’t be dispelled or am I mixing terminology?

Love the concepts of those two new heroes. They aren’t soo good bye their own but Baldur has great sinergies with heimdall or minions. Skadi is what Guardian Owl should has been and great against minions.

Stonecleave dispells stacks from himself, so other more broad stack dispells could be coming

(edit: removes stacks, not dispells, gotta be careful with the terminology)

Correct, they can’t be dispelled.

Or removed, apparently:

SGG has been lax about mana effect interactions recently (Neith sneakily resisting Onatel and the current Onatel vs. Manashield and Poseidon bug - SGG has acknowledged the latter and intends to fix in V28), so I’m curious to know how this is functioning in beta right now.

So does Baldur’s special skill (when he has boosted HP) protect against

  • Mana generation ailments like Natalya, Alasie, Telluria, etc.
  • Mana cuts like Mitsuko, Guinevere, etc.
  • Mana steals like Onatel
  • Mana stops like Hel and Proteus
  • I don’t know quite how to classify Hansel and Gretel, but given that there’s something possibly untoward going on with their skill and Seshat, it feels like they need their own category
  • Merlin’s Mindless Attack

No 4* heroes???

Yet.

You also have to remember there were heroes previously in beta not released with first iteration of Valhalla portal and there will probably be more new heroes to come…

…honestly anything to keep SGG distracted from actually working on the hero academy.

They keep all stacks (even on enemies) when they pass a wave?

wait… AND 300 DOT damage per turn forever? O_O that sounds like a very good auto-play hero.

I have a nickname in the game “Skadi” and this is my name, and getting Skadi for me will be very cool! This goddess of winter and mountains seems to haunt me for life.

Baldur looks like someone should throw a mistletoe at him. I mean: what can possibly go wrong?

Is Skadi’s frost damage the same type as Vela’s water damage? Seems like all ice hero based DoT should be the same type. . . Then make the next red HoTM with innate resistance to this please and thank you!

What is included in Baldur’s resistance to effects that drain mana? Onatel only? Mana cuts (Guin/Li/Mitsuko)? Mindless Attack/Spell Slayer?

This is actually a really good joke that unfortunately likely few will understand.

About Skadi stacks. Does it matter who killed the minions? And what about order of usage? Do special need activation before we can get stacks? I mean, imagine we have Dalila and Red Hood as enemies, they summon minions, our Grimble eat them, we get mana boost, enemy have -30% mana generation and 300 dmg per turn. And that is active as long as Skadi is alive.
Also looks very promising against Freya ravens.
