Yes. Resets ailments.

Good to buy some time. She’s better if she’s 3x but I guess she should be average then for 3*.

Most likely. I have updated it.

Oooo, nice. They’ll be good against Titans with that reset Ailments I think.

Wow i didnt expect to see any new W3K hero beeing this bad.


Doesn’t zhabog do the same thing with more skill damage and he also reset all enemies’ ailments on fast. This guy’s DD is also not the best. Feels like a dud


Very happy to see new heroes that are not 5*, but both seem weak. Will not get emblems from me if I get him…

Anyone test this guy out?

Just got him. A single target Zhabog. I don’t really see a use for him, since I can’t find a use for Zhabog either. There are two problems with ailment reset.

First, there is an original caster of the ailment who can reset the ailment himself. The only added value from ailment reset is if you can cast it faster than the original hero, which means you’ll want to pair this with slower heroes. And slow heroes suck.

Secondly, there are not many ailments in this game I would pick over direct damage. Maybe mindless attack, but for that your options are pretty limited. Alfrike, Merlin and 2C Quintus come to mind, and out of these Alfrike is useless outside of very fast wars. So playing tag with Merlin and Quintus? I just can’t think of anything else.
