I got GC and am taking him all the way. I’m thinking of resetting Sartana so I can boost him, too. He’ll be the epic version of my Ares with dispel powers!
I pulled this guy.
His description is “The Elementalist of Teltoc” which is quite ridiculous, but I do enjoy ridiculous stuff.
The removals and buffs are insanely good, but I have to agree with everyone who said the color changing is gimmicky and makes no sense for now.
Maybe he’ll work against S3 squirrel? For now, he’s a puzzle and niche, but I believe there are new dynamics awaiting on S3.
Remains to be seen…
I didn’t pull him, or any of the Guardians except the Bat (3 of him!).
Fighting against him in the event I found him somewhat underwhelming. I stacked green in epic and got him to fire twice which changed me to blue, then red. Then i hit him with red gems. In legendary I stacked blue so I only needed him to fire once. I just ignored him at the start of the battle.
I pulled him in my [sadly fruitless] attempt to get Gazelle. I’m not sure what to make of him, as many of the comments here illustrate. His dispell, atk buff and crit buff look amazing! He’s pretty tough with 780 def and 1339 health. The color change thing…?
For my team, I’ve got Hatter and Lady Locke also waiting for tonics (with Alby, Kingston, Eve, Greg, Yunan, Morgan, and Tarlak as my other maxed greens). I don’t think that there are really that many undispellable buffs that I need to remove that would make him more attractive than Hatter. Only Aeron’s buff comes to mind. And maybe Grazul, but that’s only 2 turns. Any others come to mind?
Kunchen’s Elemental Link shield against yellow would be nice to dispel, but then he would also turn yellow. I would need to bring purple heroes against him to take advantage of that, which seems risky since I couldn’t ensure that Chameleon would even fire if I got a bad green board. And while I’m trying to charge Chameleon, I’m doing weak damage to Kunchen and just feeding his special.
I guess, as was said before, that if you’re struggling against a specific titan color, you could use him to some advantage there, but that seems like an exceedingly small corner case. Especially since I have to assume the majority of the population that pulled him are spenders and probably don’t have lineup holes like that.
It’s just super disappointing that Guardian heroes are so bi-modal: Either they’re great (Panther, Jackal, Falcon, Gazelle), or not (Kong, Owl, Chameleon). Avalon is the gold standard for good heroes throughout (only Lance isn’t universally hailed as a good hero, but is still good!), and I wish they could mimic that more uniformly given the long odds to summon even one event 5*.
So I like the little guy but only for offense. I’ve used him in several raids and in war. He is tricky to use and you have to pay very close attention not only to any debuffs you’ve put on your opponents but also where any tile matches are and their colors. One mistake will definitely cost you the match however I have been killing yellow 5* heroes with 5 tiles or less with only Sabina and proteus in my party. Depending on how many of them are cries. I also no longer stress over the tank as much. I can change its color and all 5 heroes get the attack buff. I have not put him on my defense team yet because I have not maxed him but I will eventually and I will somehow try to judge if he helped or hurt. Also as mentioned before by some of the others, I simply find him fun to use. A new challenge of sorts. How to take something out of the ordinary and make the most of it. He is my only 5* green right now so there’s that too. I look forward to reading more about this hero
For those that have Snow white and G. Chameleon, they do not synergize to well do they? I am just inquiring for my own curiosity.
It is because of the fact that you have this first hero, you are joyful. Everyone who received it is more disappointed. I got 3 Grand. And I’m very upset.Those who got the Panther or Gazelle got the jackpot. Chameleon still has bugs in the attack, if you charge the modified Ursen, it restores color after death and reflects the yellow ones, which kills them. The hero requires immediate processing. You can not change the color of the enemy, the chameleon MUST apply the color of the environment, and not others. Imho.
Annnnddddd it’s started…
I think we all underestimate G. Chameleon. He has 780 defense, what with claas symbols will make him a green tank.
Green tank needs to be destroyed with red team. There is a strong change that tiles will not be perfect and you faster load G. Chameleon’s mana than kill him. G. Cham uses his special and You loose your red team and killing him becomes harder. After second charge team color turns into blue, and killing G.Cham is much harder.
Second thing is when You attack G. Cham with not mono team he changes all colors so it will make some chaos - e.x.
Oh, I have great yellow stack.
G. Cham. uses his specially and yellow Heroes turn into purple.
Oh no, I have no purple tiles on board…
He might be very useful. Just think.
Rainbow vs Chameleon +12
Just funny, no threat at all.
As stated before he’s an offensive hero.
He can also have the niche of dispelling field attack bonus for war. Definitely meant for raid offence
Chameleon on defense isn’t scary at all
I’m using him and Tarlak with a 3x yellow stack against purple tanks, which often have yellow flanks.
Take out the purple tank normally, while charging Tarlak and Chameleon, and then flip the flanks from yellow to purple while giving the team +154% attack and +34% crit.
Definitely situational, but wrecks shop when used right.
I am going to try using Chameleon at 3/70 with my green titan team (Evelyn, Buddy, Tarlak, etc) on my next blue titan. You can cycle the color change back to the original color on the third use of the skill so I plan to see if taking three super mana potions to cycle him when my other units are charged to take full advantage of his attack and crit buff increases. I’ll report once I’ve been able to try this out.
The more I use Chameleon, the more convinced I am that he is sneakily one of the best offensive support heroes around, and has unreal synergy with Tarlak.
The global remove buffs/debuffs is excellent, as it’s pretty rare that you can’t time the application of debuffs to right after you’ve used Chameleon. This is the only way to remove undispellable buffs from enemy heroes, and it’s great.
The offensive attack buffs are clearly outstanding, applying Ares buffs to the whole team.
While the elemental change can be slightly tricky, in practice it’s much more often an advantage than a disadvantage. In only one case, when he switches a blue to red, is the switch disadvantageous. For yellow/purple it’s neutral for a green stack, and for both red/green heroes it makes them more vulnerable to green tiles.
Typically a green stack will be used to take out a blue tank, and won’t rely on activating specials to do it, and best practice is to flank the tank with off colors, all of which the element shift either makes more vulnerable, or doesn’t matter for.
Basically once the tank is down, Chameleon and Tarlak make it easy to demolish the rest of the enemy heroes. I’ve been using him at 2.60 and can’t wait to get him to 3.70 (where he’ll wait for awhile–much as I like him, Zeline and maybe Evelyn are ahead of him for tonics).
@Olmor, I think it’s more that the rest of the defense team you faced wasn’t all that threatening. A magni tank and a Viv on the wing?
@mogulemon, in one of those vids, you’re going up against a 4/39 chameleon. In the second, you get crushed in the first battle, and barely won the second.
In both cases, those vids are hardly evidence that he’s “no threat”.
@juzekxx02, that’s an interesting thought using him as a tank. I don’t imagine he’d punish the defense enough if he got to fire his special, so he’s probably more along the lines of a delaying tank like Aegir.
One counter is to bring a rainbow attack team to mitigate the color change aspect, but rainbow attack teams kind of suck.
I’ve already got Yunan as my tank, so unlikely to take a flyer on Chameleon myself, but would love to see someone try it out!
On defense, i feel that he isn’t a scare factor and not become a priority to be killed early. But on offense he might better, i can’t tell since i don’t have him
The only possible use I see for G. Chameleon is AS TANK, and then I think he is far from the top in that position.
With a less than good board he can activate and make things harder for you and your red stack.
Anywhere in the offense (including tournaments with color restrictions) I like to plan my team for certain conditions, and keep those conditions as constant as possible, and changing the enemy colors is just another variable to consider.
Does anyone know if when Guardian Chamelon changes his enemy’s element, the enemy’s elemental skill would change accordingly as well?
For example, if he changes Vela to blue, will Vela deals extra damage against green instead of fire?
