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:

Average speed dual uncleansable mindless

but man…
That passive combined with rogue talent

Unquestionably go Health Path with this rogue.
The def won’t matter when revive triggers.
And then automatically fires the passive

I’m not sure how I feel about this guy. He may need to be adjusted.

Seems anti Alfrike…but Average mana :thinking:perhaps slower speed would have been better due to all these uncleasable, uncleasables! ( Including passive and family bonuses)

And when combined in defense with Alfrike in VF… Well…:thinking:

Anyway, this family has suddenly up the value of G. Gazelle!, Taunts, SS Dodgers!


Reminds me of Alfrike, but with less efficiency in exchange for faster speed and ability to target one of hits. Wouldn’t mind getting him.

Amazing hero. Glad to see another hero finally get what Alfrike has. Definitely the star attraction of this portal.


Alfrike, Kullervo and Hohenwerf … my dream team :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

This guy’s name reminds me of a curse word in Spanish… But with a c and no v… Which is one of the many reasons i hope i pull him.

It’s a great team.

Coming off the bench for the Mindless attack we have Zocc and Merlin

Now we’re only missing an Ice 5* hero who can cast Mindless Attack, since all the other elements are represented


Was lucky to pull yhis guy, will definitely LB him.


This was the one I wanted, would be happy if I just got him! But managed to get Louhi/Aino/5* red. Got 19 days left for this guy!


Coin pull #7. I will hold off pulling again with my other 15 coins until July. Hoping for Aino though.


He is definitely the best hero out of the bunch in terms of raids/wars (generally PvP).

He has so huge utility in the sense that he deals a lot of damage, disables two heroes and you can PICK one of them.

Congats to anybody who pulled hin. Ascend the guy as quick as possible, he is great.


If you have 3 matches, just kill and win the match. Why bother with a random 2-hit.

This hero is useful for very fast wars but then again, why not just lvl another alfrike or miki.

Because average speed + 15% mana/hp passive is useful for much more content than just Rush.

Speed is very useful as you attempted to note in one of your other downplay posts


Anyway…grats to anyone that pulls him. He worked well as a tank or flank in Beta, and of course was great for Offense. Better than Alfrike honestly, and unlike her he is very useful outside of Rush.


How redundant this argument is. Because only a small percent of players have maybe one copy of these heroes and only a small fraction of biggest whales have multiple copies of them. Additionally, he is even in different colour.


I just pulled him off a 10x. I’m happy for now. Gonna wait a bit to do more pulls.


590 summons to get him. Got literally every other 5* in the portal before he finally showed up. Last week same story with C Guardian Panther… 830 summons for her. I have him maxed at 85 now and he’s sitting in my defense; let’s see how he does. Offense is nice… if he doesn’t outright kill someone, they are out of the way for at least 4 turns (and probably a lot longer considering they need to regain their mana after triggering).

I went full sword, but am now thinking shield would’ve been better as he may be a good yellow for the raid defense team. His special effect is key, not his damage, just like Quintin. I went full shield with Quintin and maybe that would’ve been best for Kullervo too.
