This thread is to provide early insights and discussion on the initial release of the Round 8 of Season 5 Heroes: Meresankh

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.

Sorry, the first word should be mana instead of damage.


Joke is on SGG, on rush tournaments we wouldn’t be able to cast skills anyway!

It’s actually very strong even on others formats and I’m sick of all the mana-hate heroes we are (not) getting lately.

Good for rush for sure. Handy for daily use too. Hope no nerf for that mana reduction from 30% to 20%.

Did Alfrike just get a new friend in rush?

Yes. Does look that way. I prefer Dabria in right wing with Kalo in left wing. With the usual trio in tank and flanks.

if She comes like this. She will be the new Tank meta!!
Druid give 4% mana ( talent+20). Wizard/styx troops give 20% mana. accompanied by the hero bard. without using other S5 heroes. Add 5% mana.
4% + 20% + 5% = 29%. She become fast ( 8 tiles).
Average hero need 25% mana to cutdown 9 tiles become 8 tiles.


Word of the Queen (Guin) with some steroids I guess? But no healing, no purple buff

Guin 2.0? 30% is a bit excessive. On top of mana speed cut, the opponent will need to move a lot of tiles. Flanks would likely cast and end the match.


Mana charging works very differently on defense

Hawthorn is suddenly more relevant than ever: mana gain = counters mana cut; ailment reflect = she slows herself down; manashield = chance to resist mana cut if she fires before Hawthorn does

Poseidon is also a good counter even if the weak color, and could always use charge/magic/styx heroes to counter (Garnet + red stack comes to mind)

Wow, and they nerfed cAlasie for doing this to three and have this chick do it to all. If y’all pull for this hero and she isn’t changed from this version, SHE WILL BE NERFED!


Tbf cAlasie is fast (+CB mana bonus even), and the release version the mana slow was uncleansable. This one is average, and the mana slow is cleansable. If she was fast, I absolutely agree she’s way too OP and will get nerfed. But since she’s average, i think the risk of a nerf is much smaller.

Now Luna from Mighty Pets 2 on the other hand…


I haven’t pulled an s5 yet… If i got her… Sure… I’d be happy…

She is fast under the right circumstances and the devastating part of cAlasie wasn’t her mana slow, but her mana cut, which was 20%. This new heroes mana cut is 30% which will be a lot harder to recover from. Mana cut has been such a huge problem since Guin that the developers haven’t created a 5* mana cut that hit all until now. If they release her with a 30% mana cut, she will be nerfed.

Neith, but they don’t seem like they are of the same species.

Problem with Guin back then was also, she was healing and defending vs strong colour…
This egypt queen is alot more prone to tile dmg :slight_smile:

When would she feature? April?

I guess march is for Anubis or that blue healer :slight_smile:

At this point… Why stop making new heroes for s5? Maybe… When s6 comes out…
