Just pulled guardian owl. I am curious if I have a fully maxed mana troop and his druid class mana bonus and ariel for another 24% mana bonus on defense only what tile reduction would he get? I have worked it out as he goes to 10 tiles (average) but i want to make sure

And iv read all the formulas I just need the number please

15% + 4% + 24% = 43%

Which is very slow reduction to 10 tiles?

Indeed: 1,43 * 10 tiles > 13,5 tiles

Is that 13.5 with normal enemy hits or ghosting the tiles?

The way to calculate this is as follows:

Very Slow is 13.5 tiles

If you want to get to 12 tiles, you do this: 13.5 ÷ 12 = 1.125

This means you need a total of 12.5% mana boost to reach 12 tiles

Similarly…

13.5 ÷ 11 = 1.227, so 22.7% mana boost to get to 11 tiles

13.5 ÷ 10 = 1.35, so 35% mana boost to get to 10 tiles

13.5 ÷ 9 = 1.5, so you would need 50% mana boost… not obtainable?

But you could get it to 12 tiles pretty reasonably, which helps… and 11 or 10 with some boosting.

13.5 is the amount of tiles needed to charge very slow heroes, the mana gained on defense works differently.

It’s 13.5 non-ghosted tiles.

I believe one ghosted counts double so 7. I’m sure someone will correct me if I’m wrong

You are correct about the ghosting.

Just looking to see if owl is viable on defense. Probably not but I will try.

Owl, hel, ariel, mitsuko, liliana

If ariel goes off even once then owl has a good chance to fire especially with hel and mits slowing the attacker down.
