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:

It’s strange for me answering this question (and maybe some of the others) for the 3* (especially) and 4* heroes from Atlantis. Cause like for Gato, I have him emblemmed and limit broken. I emblemmed him for more attacking options in 3* tourneys and events, and then I reasoned that any hero I have emblemmed and use -especially among 3*, as they are cheap to lb- it only made sense to LB them also.

But then I have to answer this question on if it is worth LBing, and, objectively, I say no, but yet I did it…

I don’t know, it’s confusing. Maybe we need a poll like -

Is Gato worth LBing?
  • Yes, absolutely
  • Definitely not worth it
  • No, but I did it and don’t regret it
  • No, but I did it and wish I didn’t
  • IDK man, its a 3* do what you want

I love my Gato. His ailment block is v useful, from time to time. I also particularly like how fast his animation is!


Yes, he can even block stage effect ailments too. (Eg: during the currently on going Clash of Knights)


I never had a reason to regret this guy. Ailment block is basically a must for clash of knights, he does it as nicely as my Vanda. Not mentioning the huge hit when paired to C. Gunnar and Nordri. The ailment block is also useful on tournaments since DOT is still a thing among 3*s.

He is a solid heroe for me and have a place in my favs collection.


My only gripe about him (for this event) is that he only blocks for himself and nearby. That means the CoK level ailments still hit 2 others, which kinda makes me still use an antidote…

Add… yeah i could bring CoK 3* heroes as the other 2…

I do use him regularly with my mono blue 3* squad- and his ailment block works really well with chick jr.


So is Gato still relevant?
I maxed him up ages ago but haven’t used him in such a long time?
Am I missing a trick?

Fed mine away long back to clear roster for new blues !

IMO ailment block is nice, but only to adjacent isn’t so useful. I don’t think he’s that much better than many other blue 3*
