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:

Claiming this spot! Really looking forward to Junaid as he is my answer to not having Anzogh! Even if I one day get Anzogh I am still going to use Junaid a lot.


Sniper 4* Anzogh. Wouldn’t mind getting him, there’s not many damaging healers (Mr. Boar, MT and that’s it I think). Especially since this one deals concentrated damage and pretty good one for 4*.


Could you @PlayForFun correct the tag sason-5 to season-5 please? Thank you.

Oh, ok, I have fixed it.

Ok anyone have this one leveled?

Ok I swear I am not stalking you @g8slord


Anyway I was not able to really test Junaid against other 4s so I was running him against 5s, as such I LB’d and Emblemed him along a Defense/Health path, and he not only survived but did exactly what I wanted from him, deal damage and heal my team. Obviously his heal is not as strong as a proper healer and his attack against 5* heroes was only so-so, but he is a Fast version of Anzogh that snipes one.
For someone without Anzogh, Junaid was my most wanted hero from this portal. Oh and if his passive goes off = more damage = more heal = slow enemies!


Stalk all you want if you keep providing info lol. I was thinking defense then attack path, could be an ok heal at fast speed, also with a decent attack could help on titans?

If you were thinking of using him more against 4* teams (like in a tourney) or on the Titan, I would focus him on Attack all the way.

For my purposes of using him against 5* teams Defense/Health made more sense.


From beta, what were the top heroes in your opinion?

Of this batch released I would say:

5* : El Naddaha, Khonshu, Sobek
4* : Azmia, Junaid
3* : Aqeela


I got him but isn’t he overpowered more than vote he received? Compare with other epic snipers he not only damage much more but also heal too.

Is this attack/def route?

Attack i do love him fun to play with

could u share the path pls?

This is mine. You can choose critical instead of mana on the 19th node. It depends on your troop’s level or persenal preference. Cheers!
