Subtitled: Why does cGormek seem so much better?
We haven’t had a Gobbler thread in almost a year, and with so many minion-generating heroes now the old discussion may not be relevant…
I drew Gormek’s costume in February, and he’s been a nice add to my minion-munching arsenal. I’ve noticed that Gobbler’s stats are actually very similar.
Gobbler was my 3rd ever 4* green, so I took him to 3.60 right away but he’s been sitting there for nearly 2 years. Is it time to give him shields?
With costume bonus, I can charge cGormek in 9 tiles with a level 5 mana troop (which I happen to have). Gobbler takes a level 23 mana troop (which I don’t have) or a level 17 mana troop and talent level 20 which takes a whole lot of druid emblems tied up in a niche hero…
Also cGormek fits well with the soft hitting reds I take him with (Vanda, JF and Lady Loki) leaving a good chance there will be minions for him to munch by the time he fires. My green companions Lianna, Almur, and Caedmon are fast hitters it would be more difficult to time the minion generators for Gobbler.
I also have a Grimble that I use a lot and a leveled, unemblemed Capt of Diamonds that I almost never use. Capt usually sees some life during minion wars but that’s about it.
So any thoughts on Gobbler? There are lots of heroes that are generally unloved but getting use anyway. Is Gobbler one of them?
