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:

Wow he looks good. 20cr

Not gonna lie, all else aside I was hoping for more of a Hades vibe design-wise.

So this family is a bunch of baby myzteros?

Note on Styx Mana speed:

  • Exactly 6 tiles are needed to charge to 100%
  • Exactly 3 more tiles so 9 in total are needed to charge to 200%
  • Exactly 3 more tiles so 12 in total are needed to charge to 300%

Do mana troops affect this, or we can use ninja or critical troops for them as mana speed is not affected by troops?

Mana speed can be increased with troop.
The above numbers are shown without any mana troops or talents.


Do we know how troops can improve the above numbers?

How does Styx speed work during Rush wars? Is it 6.5 tiles to charge from 100% to 200% and another 6.5 tiles from 200% to 300%?

Here. 20 characters.


Has anyone pulled this hero yet? I feel that he’s really good. Red dispeller like C G Kong, that alone makes him unique

Anyways, saw one at top 100 with LB already lol


Pulled him today and he’ll be useful (I love my C Sabina but this guy is a 5*) but boy I wish they would just redo that card. He looks like an obnoxious, pre-pubescent brat.


I suspect all charges take 6.5 tiles, but it was not tested during Beta as I recall.


And he dispels before applying damage, defeating Ferant and the like. Didn’t get him though, and not going to sell a kidney to do so.

Just got Hypnos from a 10pull OMG

Red dispellers are hard to come. So he’ll be handy.

Good luck on your pulls!


Pretty excited. Got him with a 10-pull. Killhare, too, who I always wanted, but sadly that bad-#@! bunny hasn’t aged well.

Hypnos dispel all and then block all enemy status buffs is awesome. Even the first charge (I think 6 tiles) blocks ALL new enemy status buffs for 2 turns, which I think will be really useful to get a head start in wars, raids, and tournaments.

Dunno how I feel about his artwork, though. Doesn’t seem like this young lad lounging carelessly atop a fluffy cloud really matches with his 335% damage to all enemies power. Still… very pleased.

Happy summoning and good luck to you all!!!


Yeah he reminds me of a red Onyx, except that Onyx only hits all in his final charge but does more damage and dispels last :thinking:

Luckiest Summon ever… had only diamonds left for one try and voilà! :slight_smile:

Very happy with him, red Dispeller as well as Dispeller in general is seriously lacking in my current roster!
