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:

His debuff first will come in hand against that soldiers from CoK stages, especially that annoying riposte


I’ll say it here, he is Faiez counter and Treevil’s new best friend.


Haven’t been this pleased to summon a 3* in a while, that’s quite a good special skill!


This is the only Kalevala hero that I pulled thus far. Looks solid.


I was saving my coins for Halloween or Christmas, but I needed this little guy for 3* tournaments. Got in on my 7th pull, along with a very, very nice surprise. I couldn’t be happier with these summons.

Question for the experts: I have 2 unleveled Chick Jr. I know he hits harder, but doesn’t Joukahainen make him redundant?


I think that Joukahainen is very good in situations where you need to debuff your opponents before use special skills

I bet he’ll be awesome in CoK against those annoying riposte soldiers

Level 1 chick and him?


I should’ve specified that I woudn’t use Chick Jr. for challenge events. Do you think I should level up both just for 3* tourneys?

Due to having a higher attack and special skill percentage, Chicken Jr. wold be a better event heroes where it comes to raw damage.

For every other aspect, Joukahainen is better, very much better than him.

Definitely, but I use double Karil in challenge events, which is why I don’t need Chick Jr. for them. It seems like the case for leveling him up is getting flimsier and flimsier.

Solid hero. But he looks like Darryl #1 from Newhart


I think he looks like Joaquin Phoenix.

And Mielikki looks like Emma Stone

His skill isn’t “Song of Morass”.

Trying to build a blue team for rare and feel like this guy is the new chick jr. Thoughts?

I haven’t used him much yet, but I think he will be a great addition for tourney team. Will LB in the near future


Anybody see a use for two? I summoned two and kept them both because I’d have to wait a year if I decided I wanted two after feeding one. Not sure whether I should level them both.
