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:

Interesting. Bogart is similar although at average speed (hits target & nearby for 305% while also applying the same DD mechanic to all 3).

Better to hit 3 at average or 1 slightly harder at fast speed (and likely higher stats)?

:smiling_imp: will replace Cheshire Cat on :sunny: Titans & over all a good DD​:bangbang:


The hero is arrived just with some stat change.
Polls are now enabled.

Higher attack and damage than Bogart, but a little less health and defense.

Both seem great in their own way.

I never leveled Heifeng Guai and I’m glad I didn’t. Koda is better in most scenarios.

Is this guy worth levelling up if one already has Goretooth for DD against yellow titans?

I’m wondering the same thing, is this guy useful outside of Titans?

I guess it all depends on your roster. I don’t have any hitter in purple so it makes sense for me to use him. I also have Carmenta, so if I pair her with Koda I can reset the DD for another 3 turns and spread to nearby enemies. His + 20% attack eather power for 6 turns at the start of a battle puts his attack stats at about 1150, which is strong for a 4* fast. But to get the most out of him he needs to be double LB. All in all he seems more like a one dimensional hero for Titans and 4* tourneys.

This guy looks like C.Richard’s high school yearbook photo.


Just got for free in the mv summons.
No idea when ill get round to maxing i have cat already so not a priority, also no cleric emblems.
Does look alright def good for titans if you don’t have any other options.

I think, that comperable hero to Koda is Tiburtus. Both 4 stars, both purple. Key difference is how great their debuff is.Tiburtus does only 34%, Koda 55% and it is a huge deal as 55 gives opportunith to kill enemy hero with one sniper. Only drawback is, that Koda gives his debuff to one hero, when Tiburtus gives to 3, but is a bit slower. Comparing their raw stats like attack, def and hp, Koda is ahead as he is newer hero
I had to change my main team as I got new healer. I had to replace Athena and only hero I had, that is capable of giving similar def debuff is Koda. I leveled him up and went for shield path as I value more his def debuff more than just attack. It took some time to get used to him (Athena’s debuff requires hitting opponents with tiles to get -68% while here I just need to wait 2 turns) and as for now I can safely say, that I do not regret taking him. It’s a solid hero with okay stats, that fit his role well. I LB him 2 times.

I doubt this is the case with Tibs’ costume stat bonus. Then again who uses S1’s without costumes nowadays.

My bad, I forgot about his costumes

I came here just to check if anyone has some feedback on who to level between these 2 heroes :smiley:

I have Tibs with 3 costumes and now Koda. I’m leveling him because I don’t have any 4 star purple snipers and I’m thinking his bigger defense down might help with titans. I’m definitely not sure about limit breaking him and tabards. I’ll have to play with him a bit before I decide how much to invest in him.

Are we talking about Koda? You don’t need tabards for 4* heroes so I’m totally confused :sweat_smile:


I had been using Cheshire Cat for titans, but on average my scores went up with Koda. There is a little nuance to waiting on firing damage tiles after he fires so that his drop percentage goes up. That meant I did get some lower scores from cat’s consistency, but on average over 25 attacks or so my scores increased.

Cat and Koda have bigger drops than Tibs. For titans, take the bigger drop.
