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.

Eloise’s an awesome hero, I almost feel sorry for Minion Summoners. This is my lighthearted review. Thanks!
She’s basically a Grimble that does not produce mana. Hits stronger as a trade off, and then the minion block but…
I’d say I’ll stick to my Grimble, and if you wanna produce more minions to fuel me up for the second time, then be my guest.
Sorry Eloise but you’ve been beaten by an old goat.
270% damage to all with a baseline attack stat of 803……sorry bro. Minions aside….show me the power. That’s insane damage. The minion stuff is just icing on the cake. The baby goat isn’t doing any damage close to that. Now add emblems and Eloise is a wrecking ball at average speed!
Killhare deals 300% (granted, a bit lower base attack) for years and where is she now I don’t even use her in my secondary teams anymore.
And well, Grimble’s hit is weaker, no doubt there. But against minions he will let your Ludwig/Alfrike/any other gamewinning slow/very slow hero fire much quicker. So his hit is really irrelevant.
Eloise will hit all for 500 dmg and remove the minions. Cool. And then what?
This argument is just a case of “my hero is better”! The fact is, both are great anti-minion heroes for different reasons and play styles. Grimble hits like a wet noodle, but charges up the real killers. Eloise hits hard herself and really softens up the enemy for follow up kills. Both are pretty great. Do you need BOTH? Maybe for wars…but both remain great.
I see Eloise as a direct counter against Freya. Being a wizard she can proc jinx, greatly increasing the damage done to all for any buffs the enemy team has active.
Of course she is! I won’t argue with that. She’s there all equipped for the job.
Just in my opinion, good old Grimble is better for the same job, as he destroys the minions and at the same time enables your slower, devastating allies to murder now uncovered enemies. Eloise misses that part, which leaves a feeling of being just a worse Grimble. And nowadays she should compete with Penolite instead!
I was lucky enough to pull Eloise and Penolite a while back. No Grimble here, so I can’t compare but I’m excited to pair them on my minion killing team.
I’m just thinking about those Christmas defs you find now like everywhere. It’s so annoying when their just spamming minions like crazy. These fights just take forever…
And now there comes Eloise along and just puts an end to this minion madness. Love it somehow
Just don’t forget a dispeller or krampus taunt will mess that plan up
Just pulled her on a challenge coin pull (I was hoping for Rayne or Quintin) and I am slightly underwhelmed - feels like a more violent cGormak. Admittedly part of the underwhelm is that I have quite the queue for darts. (Hanitra, Inari, Neith) but I think I’ll squeeze her in after one of the dodgers.
I do like the ‘no more minions’ part - as it means it especially negates the Bera / Freya issue where you accidentally plough more tiles in and set them off again - but it’s odd - she’s laying the battlefield bare for a follow-up but also does a shed load of damage herself. I’ll be interested to see if it’s enough for another AoE to finish off. Perhaps fan favourite cKiril has found another minion destroyer to play with.
I also have Grimble sat at 3/70 facing off against Karnov for that 1 more tabard needed.
Mehh don’t interrupt me dreaming with handy details x)
Bring Malosi and just stop the taunt in the first place. Simples!
Oh well to be Honest I still like my C.Gormek tho.
With full Minions, he can heals like 1.5k HP.
That means comeback time baby!!!
Here are my thoughts on Eloise!
Iam glad I’ve got her …
but heroes like that brought a disturbance in the Force of the game!
That makes top heroes like Freya, Bera, Lady of the Lake and any other minion summoner
loose their glory and strength!
Recently I’ve got Bera after 3 years of playing, but decided now to stop her leveling
and give the mats to Lepiota.
Lepiota will ghost - “silence” for a while all those new heroes like Mr. Pengi, Quintin, Ludwig,
but is a tough battle against OP heroes. I guess a lot more “new age” heroes
will follow so it’s better to wait and see.
I want her. I was fortunate to pull esme the last challenge but eloise does damage as well.
Congratulations to all who pull her!
