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:

Hard pass on this. I hate Carol… Not that fond of the Jack o lantern either.

Why almost all s5 heroes are so bad this far?

Oh wait, does the fiend explode even if the target is killed prematurely? I don’t even have scoratek to test this out.

Because S5 is a cash grab season. There’s no too groundbreaking mechanics introduced

Nope if the target is killed then the fiend on that target disappears too and won’t explode.

Oh ■■■■, that makes him even worse than carol! The only salvation is that the fiends can’t be cleansed

Best hero so far is El Naddaha which has the best secondary skil in long time and Azmia whom they nerfed in few days after her first appearance .

Say the middle 3 heroes all take a scarab fiend and they explode for 300 damage each. It says nearby take minor damage, so will the middle heroes take 150 twice (one from each flank) on top off the 300? And the flanks and wings would also take 150 each if all are alive.

So under the most ideal circumstances: 275% damage to 3, fiends do 38% damage for 3 turns (to 3), then explode for 1800 across all heroes. It seems like a decent amount of damage, but you’re likely not going to get it all.

Think that is the main use as you try to kill the tank, but the flanks still stay alive in time for fiends to explode which can hurt both wings. Seems like he needs a lot of control and is definitely not a defensive hero, but I wouldn’t mulch him if I got him.

I reviewed his special a couple of months ago and was impressed by the total damage he and his fiends do. Here are my thoughts: Khepri Review, Empires and Puzzles (Season 5) • OLD CYNIC

Because SG don’t want our money :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: . I will pass this portal and this month, and if the most heroes in S5 it’s like this I will make only free pools, it’s not worth to get after 3 featured heroes and 2 of them to be trash.

The family bonuses and passive abilities may not be enough to wet Big $pender appetites thus far.

But holy cow is the framework laid out to do just that when the time comes! I think it makes brilliant financial sense to dilute the odds with placebos first.
But this looks to me to cure some small fish woes should they pull it.

Always amazing reviews !!

Khepri is going to be a hero that players are going to wish they had gotten. Even though some are goingnoff of inital impressions, Khepri is underrated. Max bomb damage those fiends can do is 1800. He can make things a bit tricky, particularly in bloody battle tournaments.

I’m sure he’s fairly solid, but the problem is the damage is delayed, and anything that doesn’t happen at fast or average speed has the risk of being too little, too late. The same reason you don’t bring slow heroes to raids… most of the time the fast heroes will obliterate you before the slow hero even goes off.

When three 9-tile heroes will destroy 60% of your entire team (e.g. Morel - Quintin - C. Lepus, or Zekena - C. Leonidas - Faline), backloaded damage or slow heroes just can’t compete.

Not interested in this hero. Not interested in most of the S5 heroes, to be honest. The best thing about them is that 60% chance to apply -24% mana reduction to all enemies when firing a special… that’s deadly. But special wise, other than El Naddeda (?) or that fast purple sniper, they are nothing unique.

Not true. El Naddaha, Sobek, Khonsu are all tier 1. Horus and Khufu are good. Only 2/7 are “bad” and even then not that bad. It is unfortunate 2 of the 3 featured are “bad”

I think… The heroes are designed to be good… But the passives make them great… But just reading half of the card is why we are not valuing them appropriately.

Also… This guy will dominate in towers. Because the time the special is active goes down, all the bombs will go off in one turn.
