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.

We finally have our first Dark reflector! Not to mention, offering the Paladin class feels like a much better fit for a tank, and much like Gazelle… healing to all rather to 3 is a plus side in my book.

The change to mana cut seems very fair. All in all, happy with this and look forward to hopefully getting her :slight_smile:

As for Merlin? This is just a plain straight up buff… now that he hits 3 instead of one… Kind of lazy to be honest :confused:


Nooooo :sleepy:

So this is why Guinevere hasn’t received a buff.

So sad to read this. :pensive:


it’s better to reduce mana to all enemies by 20% ( Neith average speed reduces mana to all enemies by 20% , new S5 heroes / still in beta with average speed reduces mana to all enemies by 30%).
if not 20% , 15% is also fine.
Heals by 40% to all allies. Good.


I would love Guin’s costume (and Seshat’s) as they were my first levelled 5* and I retain a huge amount of fondness for them both. Seshat has been LB and I still use on war hits, but Guin - as many of us have - was stripped of Emblems and just sits there.

As @Orion_Fervor says - the Paladin class is spot on. The heal is nice. It’s a shame that’ it’s not boosted health, but I think that would make her OP. The mana cut to 3 is still good - just less so on defence. And purple reflect is good. She’s basically become the healing version of Mitz.


I do think that if you were to run Guin defensively then the mana cut to all is definitely better, but offensively the mana cut to 3 makes more sense with all of the other perk’s.

In my opinion, this makes Guin versatile for both OG in defence (now with the addition of boosted stats), and Costumed in Offence.

I also agree that if the health was boosted it would be too much… :smiley:


Merlin Meh

Guin will be a good counter for Alfrike, 2C quintus and others dangerous purple heroes, Good hero and improve from the original version


:joy::rofl: C Guin is exactly as I thought Zynga would repackage her as. With all the fast buff blockers around, her dark reflect won’t be as useful now.

At least she can go back into circulation soon.

This doesn’t really feel like a renaissance… But ok…

I guess green knight and C. Guin will be featured in the next challenge event portal, just like Gazelle and Hippo were :slight_smile:

Yeah, would be better if she was monk. But she doesn’t feel like monk material.

This costume wont be as good on defence as C.leo, I was hopeful that her Og with costume bonus stats would make her a reliable tank. However she dosn’t have the S1 costume stats she has S2 which are much lower
Instead of a 5 mana bonus she gets 1%.

I dont have Gwin and I don’t want her …

This is wrong. My black knight costume gets the 5 percent mana bonus so Guin will too

Tbh, I think both costumes aren’t bad and makes wanting to get either of them seem nice.

…now do Boomer. Give him water damage and reduced mana generation on all enemies.

Closing as both costumes are released.
You can continue discuss them in their proper topics.
