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.
No discussion at all? I guess poor Jabbar is not liked
Anyways, I pulled a bunch of Gafars and Jabbars yesterday. I already had two maxed Gafars so I did not keep any new ones. Jabbar I am actually keeping one copy. First of all, for collection purposes. Secondly, I see some potentials in him for field aid wars and rush attack tournaments. Since I have 40+ trap tools, I might as well just max one.
I’ve got one sitting at 1-1 since last year’s Sand Empire. I guess that’s because there’s another hero for each possible use case who’s just a little better at one thing or another. But alas, I’m a collector, so I’ll keep him and probably max him one day in the future when I’ve run out of other heroes to work on (almost been at that point before they released Valhalla…). I’m not doing any pulls this Same Empire.
I just pulled Jabbar today; his attack stat is weak, but it looks like he could be a pretty solid tank, especially in niche circumstances like a 4* No-Yellow tournament. In that situation, he might be more punishing than putting my Costume Rigard in the tank position. If Rigard fires, the opponent can just keep throwing tiles into him to charge their heroes with little further consequence, but at least if Jabbar fires, he does a small amount of damage and applies the healing debuff to a few opponents.
So I’ll probably level him up. I wish the cleanse was for more than just himself, though.
Pulled Jabbar last year. I only just got around to maxing him now… after maxing 141 other heroes and 3-70’ing 20 other 5*s. Never actually used him for anything. The only Heroes lower in my leveling queue are Obakan, Quintus, and Justice.
I would like to have this guy, or at least wouldn’t be bummed if I got him. I can see how he can be “outgrown” as you level up and transition to more 5* and really key 4*.
Looking at him though his HP and D are very solid for a 4*. There also isn’t a great deal of competition for monk class at the 4* level. If he were to be emblemed, especially on primarily and HP and D path he would service as a phenomenal tank probably into the platinum and diamond transition. Especially with some fast, punishing flanks. All the enemy will want to do is heal and they need to either wait to heal or take a dramatic cut in it. Both scenarios are deadly. His monk resist bolsters his survivability.
This can also apply to slow mob fights that’ll be a slugfest or the late war rounds, especially with field aid, where his combined damage taking ability and enemy health reduction could be huge. They just won’t be able to heal themselves or kill him.
If you view him as a support hero to bolster teammates by taking hits and reducing enemy healing benefits he really seems pretty solid for that when playing with mostly 4’s. Again, past that he is likely relegated to war depth, class trials, or the “just cause” tinkering while farming. Probably only in offensive raids, even mono, if you’re cup dropping when you’re to the mostly 5* point.
I would take him over non costumed Kashhrek or Boril, who are both notoriously great platinum tanks.
I doubt anyone will show a +20 Jabbar. I have him, but haven’t used him much as I would normally lean towards Rigard, Proteus, Domitia when I stack purple.
With the defense formations (double and double reverse), he may be more useful as he will inflict status and damage effects to all. Could be useful if fired before a healer fires. Just a thought.
