:hugs: Family Bonus

Ninja Heroes have a family bonus for unique heroes of the same family.

Ninja Family
Bonus for 2 / 3 Heroes:

  • 5% / 10% chance to dodge normal attacks and Special Skills
  • 5% / 10% chance to counterattack with 60% / 90% of the damage received

The two effects have individual sequential processing. So one may not trigger while the other might.

More Insights & Reading

I highly recommend reading these three threads for more information and context on summoning odds:

If you’ve read them a million times before, you may consider reading them again before deciding on your budget for summoning. A little time spent deciding on how much money you want to risk on summoning goes a long way to avoiding disappointment, frustration, and regret later. :slight_smile:

Geez. Deals almost as much damage as Sobek for half the charge. And summons Liu Bei’s minion’s knock-off as well. I think this will be toned down on last minute before release.

Very desirable this one …

Would not mind get multiple if release in this state …

With a bard can activate first charge in 4 tiles …

Wiamz31

Lol that one is even more gamebreaking and stupid than the other one…

They clearly don’t give a sh** anymore If this hero gets released Like that. Every week it feels more and more Like the last big Cash Grab…

It makes me sad. Loved this game but as previously ptp, it is really has become an insult. They should not have even considered 290 to all at first charge. I can tolerate a necessary nerf for viable reasons but it is clear, after having multiple heroes nerfed, that they truly want more money at the expense of loyal customers. I wish everyone the best with their pulls but if they release these guys as is, maybe legally it’s better to run the player base away than to shut the game down? I truly cannot understand the insane power creep and how this cannot be intimidating to new players.

Is this a man or woman? Looks like a woman but that arm is quite muscular for a female. And it’s blocking the chest so I can’t see properly.

Damage was significantly reduced, basically also for the other new ninja hitters…
But still useful I think against waterpipe especially

Just for info: the thread title has Elkanite instead of Ekanite. Must be because of the dreaded force of this game named Elkanen.

Yeah, must be that. :rofl:

I have fixed it.

I believe Ekanite is a woman, just a fit/muscular one but I’ve seen plenty of female bodybuilders so it’s not hard for me to see it haha.

Ekanite uses shinobi Minions though, and shinobi is male. If ekanite was female, it would be kunoichi.

According to E&P Facebook post, Ekanite uses the pronouns He/Him. Mystery solved.

So, his minions give him the counterattack but it’s deemed a buff and he takes 200 damage from El Nadda’s buff blocker. Intended or a bug?

Ninja family bonus seems very underpowered compared to meta family bonuses

Not much here said about Ekanite, which may speak volumes itself. Still, having just pulled him in Solstice, and knowing the polls likely reflect his stats from beta, I am curious if anyone has been using him… how you are liking him? best uses?

Thank you & happy gaming!

Im surprised there is nothing as I thought he looked pretty decent. A hit all liu bei. I know he was one of the ninjas I wanted.

Ekanite is a top hero, not much said because not many people have him - this is usually the case with heroes that have yet to be featured (e.g. Charon in the Styx portal).

He is an absolute beast! Seconds ago fully emblemed him. That minion counterattack is making attackers die so easy.

Nice stats, thanks for sharing :grinning: I never realised how similar he was to Liu Bei but guess the fact he hits all makes him slightly better?
