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:

Hi @PlayForFun ,

I guess should be gain 50% mana, right?

Thx, I have fixed the OP

Costume Kage will be very good to pair with this hero.

Wasn’t thrilled first but 425% damage at VF coming from 830 base ATK is a lot. That mana bonus is just icing on the cake (Kage?). Will be deadly in 1 to 1 battle and great finisher. Plus that active passive.

Also, didn’t Moonknight series start recently?


Did 10 pulls from earlier got offers…. Got him with few 3/4* for leveling up.
Now for pulls next month….


I tried a test drive Khonshu at 3.70.
I think he’s too strong, to say the least. 40% of ability effects occur with a higher probability than I imagined.
Considering that C.Kadilen’s dodge chance (45%) and the probability are not so different, it is certainly not strange to occur frequently. (Yes, C.Kadilen dodges very often.)

Anyway, if you have VF purple heroes such as C.Victor, Sergei, Hannah, etc., you will almost win with 6 purple tiles.


i need this but i don’t have money :joy:


did 4 pulls and i got him :partying_face:


Can he be a good tank in your opinion ?? Now i m using clarissa and viscaro

Just got him to join my purple v. fast crew. I now have Kageburado (max emblems and LB), c. Victor (max emblems), Clarissa (max emblems, and now this guy. Should be interesting to use all of these with Xnolphod in a mono setup. Specials non-stop lol.


I don’t have words…but wow …very nice …me like

For those that have him lvled up, can you test if costume Kage and Khonshu can 1-shot someone? What about Panther + Khonshu? Thanks.

I don’t believe you i spend 1000$ to get him lol

and you did not limit-break him?
