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:

Seems a bit nieche with the elemental defense, but can definitely be a showstopper for an enemy team with the massive heal and accuracy debuff.


I really like the season 5 heros (the portal just doesn’t always like me. :rofl:)… and the artwork I’m seeing is just fabulous …she has a nice heal and I like she does more than just that … I think she’s interesting enough for a pull or 2


Isn’t the family bonus redundant. Maybe they should have put more thought into this one.

Got adjusted to 50% heal upon release sadly

She was good on beta, Upon release balance to 50% shouldn’t hinder dramatically. But her card is quite boring. Acc debuff is great but the nature only def buff is lame is easily debuffed.


How do you figure? The family bonus seems pretty good to be. She heals all up and top it all up with some cleanse and boosted health?

Have over 1k coins, but I already have Tetisheri and Set is not that desirable imo. So guess I need to wait another month as this one doesn’t seem that useful to me. Especially with Milena arriving in my pocket tomorrow and becoming my blue focus.

How is it possible ? Never been so lucky on any portal.
But hetepheres has his accuracy debuff reduced from 40% to 35% because of his family bonus when hit by ennemy special


I got 2 of this hero from 7 coin pulls chasing Tetisheri.
It would have been nice if this blind debuff was uncleansable.

Yeah, it’s a bewildering riddle why her healing got nerfed

Is she the first blue with blind? Can’t remember any blues that blinds

Tinsel got blind too

Why of course, a new hero that I don’t have…

Interesting hero, not totally sold on her. I Like the big heal, +defense against nature is nice but not a game changer, blind is cleansable and again nothing new at avg speed… She could be an allright tank but I think she’s outshined and outclassed by many others. Not the best offering from s5 IMHO Maybe a buff wouldn’t go amiss… ;?)


I did pull this girl while spending more than my allowance trying for Tetisheri…I’m thankful for her and really appreciate the S5 artwork … I guess Tetisheri will become another Elizabeth and elude me …
May the portals show you kindness!


Congrats on Hetepheres, she’s actually pretty decent IMO and plus she’s the newest and shiniest hero :slight_smile: Hopefully you manage to snag Tetisheri another time when the portal returns!


Thanks … Maybe someday…or perhaps she will be my Elizabeth of this season…there’s one in every portal…
Hope you are graced with the ones you desire!!!

Haha there is indeed one in every season. Thankfully I didn’t need to pull on my main as I already pulled Teti last time, but I actually pulled Teti yesterday on my alt going for any featured except Set :slight_smile:
