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:

Got him. Interesting mechanic, though still working out how he’d fit in with my other 3* Blues

the passive is nice of course!

anyone have any experience with him? I’ve maxed but have not had a chance to test and use yet.

I’m actually just now starting to make a team of S5 3*'s (excl. Rekhetre and replacing with c. Melia), excited to see how it will work out.

But also, would like to keep tabs on other people’s experience too :slight_smile:

I got him. He’s good with Nordri. Passives are also good. I think he’s even better than Gato even though he’s avg speed.


thank you for the feedback! :slight_smile: looks like his high stats make a big difference

This weeks tourney has proven (at least to me) that a team of S5 hero’s can be tough to defeat.


That is true, not a bad team at all! But I still think that Jarif is not necessarily the strong one in the team.
Both healers are really strong, the question is if one needs 2 healers, but since they both overheal, why not? Especially in buff booster it works because both of them also buff.
Aqueela is a very good sniper with a dodge buff.
And Waqas with a few buffs from the others can take out a whole team.
Jarif? Does not buff, and only hits 1 target. His preventing enemy buffs is useful in buff booster at least. So, sure there are worse options, but I think there might be better ones (like a def down hero?)

Altogether the S5 team is most suited to buff booster wars, I think. Rush attack could be an option, too (with 2 slow and 2 average heroes), but that is treevil territory, so the team is only competing for second place ;). Bloody battle obviously not (with 2 healers).


yup i happen to have a full team of 3* season 5, maxed but no emblem or LB. so far only lost 2 matches in defense

So, what about him? I have him, but not really feel him, idk if I should bother another 3* hero, unless it’s totally worth it…

This guy is a good sniper . Squire Rabbit same damage percentage 355 . Bjorn second shot only 350. Agnes 320. So Vodnik at full mana hits for 400. Good sniper . Same mana speed as Nordri so they will pair nicely . I think he is worth leveling .

I maxed Jarif yesterday, fully emblemed and LB’d him today and used him in VF tourney (even replacing Nordri on occasion). I absolutely love him - he hits hard and Family bonus is great.

Hoping to test him out in other scenarios, especially the upcoming challenge event. Will add my experience with him. So far i can only recommend to max him.

I lost to a Jarif tank today. After beating several Treevil tanks.

The - mana regen kept preventing me from firing.
