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:

Sad that the one i get, noone is talking about.


Congrats @SNE!! She’s not featured so there are probably significantly fewer players getting her. So it’s not about her ability/power…


Ohhh congratulations! Shes the one I wanted actually. Love the special and the artwork on her…:heart_eyes:


She’s very similar to Arco except Arco’s minions heal 75 per turn and Ephyra has the 5% HP boost to minions stack.

Got her, tested her, nothing but eye candy unfortunately. Medium size Minion summoner with a 50% chance for small damage by her passive. Her 5% minion hp only works on the one summoning the minion, so if she fires special a second time then her minion gets 5% health, only her minion, what a disappointment. She looks lovely, she’s fun to watch but sure not usable for anything but building a beautiful minion Team to look at and that’s what I do right now. Please give her something, even Kvasir is a monster compared to her, so sad :woozy_face:
But she’s pretty as said :smiling_face_with_three_hearts::smile:

Anyone having her too, please tell me if i missed something, i would be happy if so :disappointed_relieved:
At least give her the buff Inari once got, adding some damage, what a beautiful disaster. dont get it :disappointed_relieved: :disappointed_relieved:


I don’t have her but curious if the stack made a difference for your all minion team? After her special, did the additional 5% for any future minions summoned by her allies make any difference?

Thanks so much!


No, even in map stages its nothing and only the summoner gets the 5% “boosted” minion, makes absolutely no sense, even if all summoned minions would get the “boost” it would still be nothing. I hope SG realizes that disaster and comes up with something, thats totally uninspired and probably thrown in just to have one more hero in portal. I am angry and disappointed but happy too since i love the minion game. Btw lunar heroes ruined that too (talking war defense of course), the next bunch to the gut for my most beloved part of gameplay :bear: :eagle: :tropical_fish: :rage: :woozy_face: :weary: :sob:


Thanks @vanZille! That is really disappointing. You are right about the artwork being great.

Seems like they featured the better heroes upfront.

I’ll keep my fingers crossed you get one of the other UT heroes (or she gets a buff) soon!

thank you! i think/hope the chances for a buff are higher than getting lucky again in that portal :smile:
The jackpot (and probably the reason that the alpha taunt will be crippled) is the dark 5star of course.


One of the worst heroes in the game. Has no use at all!!! Needs a huge buff by adding something to her special . So useless card even worse than salmon Loki…


Sadest part about what you said is that youre correct :woozy_face: :laughing:

Oops, made a mistake, still not the burner but red hood (any minion summoner) card changes with the stacking, nice funny stuff :fox_face::fox_face::fox_face:

So the minion hp gain is for all the minions summoned by her.


Nice artwork, except her left arm position

Very nice, congratulations!

Admit you want her just for her beauty :wink:


It’s true. I was attracted to her card by the artwork, however I think with her special she could be an asset to diochan or freya.
