🧪 Early Information on the August 2020 HOTM (Zocc)

Friends, I have a question. I want to understand the mechanics. If the Zocc does not take the mana from the churchman, but gives it, then logically this is not a negative influence on the mana, but a positive one. Maybe, after all, the clerics will not resist this effect? Or will they? If they resist, then how. Can it be that when you hit a cleric, Zokk will simply charge it with mana, which will provide invaluable assistance to the opponent? Who knows for sure? I have Merlin. But it is 1/1 and I can’t try to use it in raids against clerics to see how it works. ))))))

I guess you should read cleric skills as “it stops ANY kind of skills that influence mana”, not only negative ones.

So the opponent cannot reduce or pump mana.

The mana is protected no matter what you want to do with it :slightly_smiling_face:

The point is that I read carefully ))) In the Russian version, the description of the cleric’s talent says that it has a chance to resist effects that NEGATIVELY affect mana

The increase in mana will occur anyway, as it is not a status but a simple increase in mana, it will only occur if the target is under some effect that prevents mana gain, but in that case it would not make sense to attack that target with Zocc. In this case, the cleric will gain 50% mana but can ignore the negative status effect of the random attack and be able to fire his special ability, in which case, Zocc played completely against you. Therefore, you cannot risk attacking clergy and monks with badges.

Well, it is indeed like that even in italian, so it is not a translation issue.

Could be a semantic or indeed a bug.
Good point.

Now that skills are becoming more and more specific and strange, interpretation issues are becoming more frequent lately.

Thank you for the clarification! You confirmed my thoughts. I was inclined to think so. ))) I’m starting to like this character even more. It will make many people think with their heads before they shoot. I love such heroes. ))))

I hate them. I don’t like the idea of ​​having heroes with specific or limited uses, due to the immense difficulty in obtaining the ascension items, which today are almost impossible to obtain.

I think Zocc will be a B grade hero. Not great but not bad. Better offensively than defensively. Well balanced stat wise. I think he should’ve been fast mana with his limited sniper attack at 300% damage. While mindless attack is set up well with the mana bonus to the target, it lacks punching power as I never see mindless attack do what it’s meant for. Overall I’d say he’s mid tier in the 5* green. I’d probably ascend Atomos LotL, Elk over him though.

I do enjoy the fact that it’s another green hotm so boards will be bare for red tiles. Kind of like last month when blue tiles were no longer available.

I hate being negative about HOTM’s, but just as I was about to say that Zocc seemed like a 5* version of Hansel, I remembered that Hansel is fast mana.

Not sure about this one…

Too many fast green snipers. Also green team needs to have synergy with Evelyn. If average mana, won’t work well. For 4-1 formation, Telly is already a good addition.

Not worth going for this. Better to ascend Lianna and get her costume.

What are you doing? My monitor, keyboard, and all the papers on my Desk are now splattered with coffee. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

If I shoot Zooc early on a target. Can I throw stones to complete the mana for random attack? Like Merlin and Hansel ?. If the target is ready to shoot, can Zooc stop it?

We have Almur now for the -54% defence down against green.

i love his look, but he really sucks! 5star Merlin and can be dispeled, what???

I’m polar opposite. I hate his artwork. But I can see his use on offense with a lvl23 mana troop. He isn’t the worst HOTM (see Noor), but he is definitely average or below average.

The best thing about him is that elemental link. That is pretty powerful.

That def against special link only looks good on paper, QoH has a stronger one to get 700 instead of 900 damage from a common 5star sniper. The only percentage i take seriously are the general att/def up or down. :slightly_smiling_face:
