Bennu needs a boost. Cyprian has counterattack that rivals his. The passive skills he has aren’t enough to make him competitive. I was excited to pull a five star finally after a purchase, but when I saw how poor his special was the excitement waned.
Everyone in this thread is dismissing the 5 (FIVE!) turns of reduced damage. That alone almost makes him worth ascending. Throw in the counterattack and I don’t know what’s not to like with all the rampant AOEs running amok.
Sif says hi & bye to Bennu !!! With mats soo rare & levelling is time consuming can u really afford to give mats & a place in a team to someone who gets dispelled then all
Is lost. I think he needs 1 more skill to make him viable. Doesn’t really matter how many turns of it’s dispelled. I see what ur saying but when u see all the various innate abilities & different parts of newer heroes special skills u can’t help but think Bennu is lacking somewhat !!
In current stance of E&P, there are so many counters, dispells and buff preventions ( in ALL COLOURS) for heroes who do solely buffs for your team…
So heroes who do solely buffs (without healing, mana gain/ cuts, ailments or dmg) can quickly become just a pretty flower on the field, effecting nothing… thus, argument for 3,5 or 7 turns is less important…
Long duration buffs have a place in Towers, but that to me is a niche, maybe for others it isnt as much)
Sonia, Melendor or Cademon are enough, not to mention a few dozen 5 * heroes and we have 5 turns of nothing. Benu just stands there and is like a punching bag. Azima, Ferant are only 4 * and they are definitely more useful. Even Elena, even if her counter is canceled at least earlier, will deal direct danage. Sif is a few levels higher than Benu and that’s just the S3 hero. Benu needs a buff to become a card worth arte. Now it’s worth adding to soul exchange.
You are presumably talking about defense? Bennu is not a defensive hero. He shines in offense. You can pick the war team or raid team you are bringing him against (I.e. avoid dispellers and buff blockers). I dunno, I like him and would ascend him if I got him. Do you think Sif is trash too?
