So the big 2020, passed was my 2nd anniversary playing this game in January, the world is stricken with the pandemic, what is there to report on my hero front?
First, let’s get the TC20 portion out of the way (hmm, that’s what this thread started out as right? To see my progress with the TC20), as of today, the same freaking 5 Season 1 5* heroes not showing up (Joon, Leonidas, Vivica, Domitia, and Richard), despite multiples of others’ duplicates did (Magni, Lianna, Sartana). The TC20 collection front isn’t looking too bright. I have even tried to let TC20s sit and collect when I have enough to get 10 at once just to make my pseudo 10x Epic Pull. Aside from a few taps that resulted in accidentally collecting before they hit 10, same story. I am not even really looking forward to TC20 results any more.
On some brighter news:
This past Christmas while I was hoping for at least Rudolph off of the Winter pulls using EHT, I didn’t get the reindeer, but I managed to get Buddy, creepy smiles Buddy. I now at least have a green debuffer (plus some meat shields) to use against Blue Titans.
On New Years Eve / Day, I dropped one of my last few EHT into the slot, first came the obligatory 3* food, then I managed to pick up Vela, the January 2020 HoTM. Which makes may second HoTM for this game, and incidentally, both are Blue (the other was Frida, in case you didn’t read from up top).
Challenge Events continued to suck for me, can’t even use the collected Challenge Coins to grab the 3* (Bauchan, Vodnik, Guardian Bat), for April, I might just skip out on the summons because I already have Shrubbear and the best I could probably hope for is him, and I don’t keep duplicates.
Costumes came around and I was pretty glad in collecting costumes for Melendor, Gunnar, Tyrum, and Hawkmoon. And of course March costumes chamber went down hill by giving me duplicate Hawkmoon and Tyrum costumes (and their owners).
February introduced Season 3 (much quicker than I expected), but instead of using the Vahalla Coins as soon as I get enough of them, I’ve decided to hold onto them until all Season 3 heroes are released, and in conjunction with Gems hoarding, do a 30x pull plus Vahalla Coins pull around Christmas time (approximately when all Season 3 will be released, if my calculations are correct). Sure that means I won’t get to play with Season 3 heroes until later, but I am tired of monthly Namahage, and speaking of which, the Atlantis Coins have just now being made even rarer as apparently their places are taken over by Vahalla Coins, and I can now only find them by hunting Orichalcum Sea Dragons during Atlantis Rises. Here is to pretty much good bye to more Season 2 heroes unless I decide to Gem summon.
Springvale is something pretty unique. It was my first Seasonal Event since playing, and back then, I’d just barely enough to collect the Squire Wabbit Avatar. Last year, I actually opted to skip Springvale summons (there were only 3, and self-debilitating heroes that did not interest me much) and continue hoarding EHT until the summer (end result was me getting Gafar and Arman). So now there are 4 new heroes to make the roster of 7, and being still without a Springvale hero, this is where I would summon.
Wow, the game’s first 4* Yellow Healer is a self-debilitating hero and is only available once a year, figures this is something SGG might do. In my mind, my goal was to get Ms. Woolerton, and if I did it would be a win (Because I really, need Yellow heroes to work on!), would be ok if getting Jack since I’ve seen him for a couple of years, grabbing the Wabbit and Chicken Little there would be cool, since it will still mean unique heroes. Good news is that I managed to get Squire Wabbit and Chick Jr. on the first day of the event within the first few EHT. But I’d still very much like the 4* Sheep… So today, 04/08/2020, during lunch time, I dropped another EHT in (not much left)…. Out came…
Killhare, AKA Lola Bunny, AKA grown up Babs Bunny
Wait-a-Minute, you mean to tell me, after 2 years and 4 months of playing, I just got myself my first 5* from the summon portal that’s not a HoTM, and this is the first Seasonal 5* on my roster? You better believe it. Lock Icon quickly went into action. This still seemed pretty surreal to me even as I am typing this because I really wasn’t summoning for the 5* heroes since I know how much my summoning luck sucked. A few more EHT in after, got me a duplicate Wabbit (fed) and Jahagir (that’s when I stopped), I still have a few EHT left and I still wanted the Sheep, even if I don’t end up getting her, I can’t be too unhappy with what transpired here.
So, yes, a few new heroes on the roster, but man, I need Yellow Heroes not named Dawa to work on.
Until next time…
