That’s a bummer. Both that specials don’t get crits and that the problem won’t be fixed yet.
I’ve got 3 tonics right now and Margaret, Lianna, Horghall, and Kadilen that could use some tonics, so while I’m always eager to pull the new shiny hero, I know my roster isn’t a good home for him right now. My tonic-less empire just isn’t a good fit.
No way for us to know that exactly. One thing though; only 2 updated challenge events have been fully tested. So after the second one next week, they will need to do an update before November’s challenge event. So, second Wednesday in November at the very latest is my guess… likely at least a week before that so they can roll out the update before that challenge event.
I’ve added a reference to Kingston’s attack debuff to the Status Effect thread. See the linked thread for a reference of all status effects in the game:
I assumed here that Kingston’s debuff has a silent cap of 6 attack reductions while it’s active. But it would be awesome if someone who has him would confirm that
The reason why I’m assuming 6 reductions is the silent cap (i.e., the card doesn’t say there is a cap but the game puts one in place), is because that’s how Athena’s defense reduction works too; up to 6 defense decreases for the duration.
Note that the generic attack buffs (including Khiona and Black Knight) and other attack ailments (Alice, Zeline) do not stack with Kingston’s ailment.
That means you can use Boldtusk or similar heroes to overwrite his ailment, and vice-versa you can use Kingston to overwrite attack buffs. Note however that Alice’s ailment is undispellable, therefore Kingston will not overwrite her So beware using them in the same team.
Happy titan hunting and raiding!
P.S. I know Kingston’s debuff is not working as expected right now, but when fixed, the above comments regarding his ailment should be valuable.
Seriously didn’t expect him since I’m not doing any pulls this month, but on topic, glad to have him and hope he’s patched up soonish. Pretty certain it will happen before I get tonics for him as I’m at 0
