For me it is Boril.
I have been somewhat lucky getting some decent 3 and 4*, even got Frida as a bonus last month.
I got Boril about 2 weeks ago,and started on raising it up slowly and after 1 ascent put him in defence,then took him on farming runs and was impressed.
He is now past 2 ascents,and part of the team i use for opening season 1.started province 16,made a big inpact as i cleared 14.
For me it is Boril.
Out of these… Wu Kong: my first epic hero
- Wu Kong
- G. Jackal
- G. Falcon
For me it’s Wu Kong, Zimkitha and, last month, Alberich.
Wu Kong gives you insane numbers on Titan.
Zim is just very solid hero that I use everywhere.
Alberich is now slowly growing, but will be my main 5* healer.
Alberich was a big one for me and he pretty much makes all of my raid teams.
On the 4& front Proteus is just awesome and really has me wishing I had his 5* big sister, Hel.
As much as I hate to say it though, pulling Guinevere as tank is the one that has probably seen me finally stop yo-yoing in and out of diamond.
My game changers
For me, I must say it was Melendor.
Back then, I was still a noob with only 3* heroes. And I had one for each color except green. So for a very long time, I had to settle with Needler.
Finally, one day I saved up 300 gems. And I waited for green elemental summon so I would be guaranteed to get a 3* green hero. I was only hoping to get a Belith because I needed a healer on my team. But you know what? Boom! Melendor popped out! It was everything I hoped for and more: green, healer, and 4*!
This was about 5 months ago, and to this day, Melendor is on all of my teams: map, raid, titan, and war. I managed to max him (including special skill) and unlocked a couple of nodes of his talent grid. Absolutely a game changer for me!
first 4 star I got was game changing in the sense that I felt like I was actually getting somewhere lol. For me that was Chao, obviously now he just feels meh.
The first real game changer I got was Khiona, even at low levels her attack boost just made a huge difference in raids, map levels, etc.
Proteus! Aaaand Wilbur
- Reviving (by far the best)
- Mana stop/reduce/slowing
- Attack buffing
- Damage deviding
- Aliment blocking
Notable mentions (in order of appearance in my roster):
- Guardian Jackal
- Wu Kong
For me it was definitely Wilbur. I was just playing through season 1 with my 3* team and first few provinces of season 2. I saved enough Atlantis coins for 2 summons. I got a 3* hero and the 4* Wilbur. He was my first fully ascended 4 star hero and I never looked back ever since. He got me through everything, right from season 1 dark lord, to gold arena from silver, to good titan hits, finishing all rare quests. After that I have had a few more 4 stars whom I fully ascended, and with Wilbur’s support I am able to finish epic and legendary tiers of the monthly challenge event. I am yet to take part in a seasonal event. Christmas was my first but I was way noob back then, I think I just barely finished the beginner. I wish to get some 5 stars soon though.
Anyway, long story short, Wilbur’s defense buff on my team and defense down on the enemies definitely changed the way I feel about this game. He is still my strongest hero btw with emblems.
Sabina was my first 4-star, and has been used quite a lot. Wu Kong, the second, was a real game-changer, though. I like my Triton, Caedmon, Boldtusk, Sonya, but they’re fairly “vanilla”.
The biggest change came with drawing Wilbur, who makes me feel near invincible. I don’t think I would have finished Season 1 so soon or be on Province 10 of Season 2 Hard if it weren’t for him single-handedly saving the team from destruction.
Thank you the replies. I don’t have most of the heroes you’re all having.
I just pulled Wu Kong on a free token yesterday. Didn’t have time to do anything with him yet.
I do have:
Tiburtu1/35, Gomek1/33, caedmon 1/35, Li Xiu 3/12, Sonya and Sabina (last of my token)1/1.
There all are decent but still Boril make the big difference for me.
Rigard was the one that changed the game early on for me.
See here for some info I think you’ll find useful.
This whole post sounds super familiar. For me, it was needing a purple hero to replace Layla, and because I hadn’t found the message board yet, I didn’t do an elemental summon because I couldn’t find anywhere that it said explicitly that a 3-star was the lowest you could get from an elemental summon. As F2P, I sure as heck wasn’t dropping 300 gems to pull Nightshade! So I just did epic summons hopefully with every 300 gems and epic hero token, but no purple. Then, on one of my first Atlantis summons - maybe not the very first one - I saw the purple lightning and realized Layla was finally headed to the bench. I didn’t expect a 4-star (only my second, behind Kelile) or a healer (so I could finally retire Friar Tuck, who I took to calling Friar Suck when I realized his heal was only to nearby allies). So I was jacked.
As you say with your Melendor, my Sabina is emblemed to level 6 and still on nearly every team I trot out, the exception being my Titan team, unless I’m stacking purple. And, in fact, I like running two healers, so I’m also using your boy Melendor, who was my very next 4-star to drop. Being able to run two healers was the only way I was able to survive harder challenges, especially hard Atlantis levels. And that’s what led to my obtaining my most game-changing hero to date - Onatel.
I won’t go through the detailed version of that story - but you can find it here, if you are interested. But suffice it to say that being able to collect more Atlantis coins meant doing more Atlantis summons, which meant a slightly better chance of pulling a HotM, which I did in January. Her mana control is an otherworldly help on Atlantis hard levels. I rarely have to use a single item to complete them now, and if I do, it’s in the first wave, before my heroes have charged their mana. Bosses fire maybe 2-3 times per battle instead of every 2-3 turns. Less damage, fewer status ailments to mitigate, fewer buffs to counter. It’s just unreal. Between being my first 5-star; my only HotM to date; and her utility across map, defense, raid, war, and to a lesser extent, Titan teams; I think she will be my favorite hero for a long time to come.
Awesome story! It’s such a nice feeling to get a much better hero than you expect.
Melendor was my first hero above 3*, and was a game changer for sure. After that, I also got other heroes that took my gaming to a new level, most notably:
Boldtusk. My second 4* after Melendor. I quickly lvled him up to a 3/60 so he was serviceable. Unfortunately, I only brought his special skill to lvl6 despite the fact that I mostly fed him red food (talking about bad luck). And for a while I just could not get a 4th hidden blade to fully ascend him. After about 2 months of painful grinding, boom! One hidden blade from an elemental chest! Without hesitation I fully ascended Boldtusk, and maxed him ASAP. Boldtusk is the very first hero I fully maxed, including special skills (I did not max Melendor until much later due to lack of sturdy shields). With some emblems, Boldtusk is the most powerful hero I have and he’s on my every team.
Proteus & Wilbur. I got these two about two months ago, from the same Atlantis 10x pull. I cannot describe how much they have contributed to every aspect of my gaming. With these two on my team, I quickly jumped from silver to gold in raid; and easily defeated the Dark Lord on my first attempt, with only minor healing & mana potions, arrows, and antidotes. I also quickly swept through s2 levels because of their powers. One final note: I fully maxed Proteus already, but Wilbur still at 3/60 due to lack of hidden blades. Luckily, I got the last required blade 2 weeks ago. I have not ascended Wilbur because I have been working on Vivica. After she’s done, I will focus on Wilbur.
Grimm. He may not seem much for others, but for me, he’s my new super hero. For a long time, although I had some very decent 4* heroes, I was in serious lack of a heavy hitter. I had Li Xiu, but her damage was dismal to say the least. That really troubled me. One day, I wanted to do an epic troop pull with the troop token I just received from a chest. However, I accidentally clicked on epic hero pull (I had a spare epic hero token). Initially I was super frustrated, expecting to get a Tuck or Prisca. But you know what? It was actually Grimm! Looks like it was a “beneficial” mistake after all! Needless to say, I fully ascended and maxed him ASAP. I now finally have a good heavy hitter, and drastically improved my attack power.
Guardian Kong and Mother North.
4* - Wu - the one to change my titan hitting life
5* - Azlar - never knew slow heroes can be so good to use.
Still hoping for Boldtusk, Proteus, and Wilbur, but like you, Grimm is my homey. Much like with trying to replace Layla with a three-star, I had trouble pulling a four-star blue to replace Valen. Got to the point where I was going with a 3^60 Kelile and no blue hero because Valen just couldn’t hang in the late season 1 stages. Two of my alliance mates had already pulled Grimm, and I was super jealous because he looked awesome. I would take any 4-star blue, but he was the one I wanted.
By this time, I had read up on elemental summons, so I got the gems and waited for the blue one to come around. Naturally, it happened for me during a challenge event, so I couldn’t do it. But I worked out the time and there was going to be a window of a couple of hours between the end of the event and the time the elemental summon changed colors. So I get home from church on Sunday, and I’m sitting dead red ready to hit the button when the challenge event ends. I hit the window, and out comes my coveted Grimm! I let out a whoop and scared my 77-year-old mother-in-law during Sunday lunch! Now he’s maxed, and as good as advertised. Long live the skeleton with abs!
I would say the top game-changers in each color are Ariel, Guin, Zeline, and Grave. I can’t think of a Purple game-changer
