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:

Thx, I forgot to update this part to Eset.


Not really sure about her. Congalach deals five hits of 310% damage. This one hit per 250% + five hits per 180%. I doubt extra damage against purple compensates that enough. She alters power of shields but given she’s slow it might be a bit late. Slightly higher stats and better family and passive are probably bringing her on par with him. Good for titans too.


How does it work if you have multiple shield enhancers? For example, I have Rhys, who alters holy shields to give more mana. I assume Eset would overwrite that so they give more attack instead. Would be pretty sweet if they stacked, though.

Agree. By the time you get her charged, you’ve probably used them all anyway.

They don’t stack. Jott and Alexandrine’s buff don’t, so I assume Rhys + Eset won’t as well. I have Rhys too and I think she’s more useful for titans given that she enhances mana gain of tiles and boosts regular attack as well.


I’ll take the extra damage against titans… But i don’t absolutely need it

Looks more like a titan hero to me otherwise meh…

Did my 35 saved S5 tokens and got nothing…I suppose I will wait for Tetisheri to be featured again…I really like Eset artwork!
Edit: also finally experienced the special live in game…very nice indeed. :kissing_heart:


This was dropped to +64% / -57% in the live game release.


Not really a strong hero overall
Good for vf wars and tournaments
Good for titans


Sorry to hear, I also got nothing in 40 summons as I was hoping for either the new lady or Ahmose :frowning:


Can you compare her to Alfrike ? Except for the brainless attack and with shields?

Used my saved dunes coins for nine pulls, got Elena on pull 4 cursed and then carried on hoping for the HOTM.

But pull six got me

Having completed all other seasons she is only the second season specific hero I’ve gotten after Lord Loki.

Looking forward to crushing some purple titans and heroes.


I used my pulls here because I would have liked to have gotten Eset or Ahmose, but it was not meant to be in amidst my 19 coin pulls.

Only thing for me, is that she is a titan hero, and I don’t have Rhys either so no concerns for overwriting. I have to admit though, I do think Rhys is more useful overall as a tile buffer, and her damage to me seems… low relatively speaking (read: I still would have liked her!). My mind would go to a hero like Jove for instance (who, I know is far less accessible [for now]) but he does 530% to one and minor (265%) to all others, at fast speed!

My current holy hitters (levelled and unlevelled) consist of cWhtie Rabbit, Ogima, Caitlin and cPoseidon as the notable ones. (then add Kara and Lidenbrock as non hitters); so as nice as it would have been to have a powerhouse, I will wait for Challenge Festival and hope that I stand a chance to obtain Gazelle or Anne once again! :pray:


Guess I’m set for MT Hades. Borahae :purple_heart::purple_heart::purple_heart:


When first reading her special, the damage, tile buff I thought “nice, a fast mana Titan specialist, would be nice savings on mana pots”, went back and looked at mana speed.

Almost fell down (while seated).


So, she really is a Titan beast and rush marvel and obviously harder to play in “standard” PvP arenas.

In spite of the mana speed handicap, I would be delighted with her for the tile buff.
Jott made a huge difference on red titans and to my great sadness remains my only tile attack buffer.

[Edit: Not true, I took Rat in Fated Summons]


Why is this hero so bad. Should be average speed.


she is ok

in my opinion she needs to do more damage on the random hits at least. 200% minimum

currently she is a worse version of congalach in most situations
