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:

Isn’t this just a 5* greymane that overheals?

I want him for his passive. His special can be normal. :rofl::joy:


We’re really trying our luck to get 0.5% heroes, just to counter waterpipe huh?


I kind of hope that not many people pull on this portal. It just seems so ridiculous to open a portal that’s just S1 with a miniscule chance of getting something new. Presumably they will have a few more heroes each year, but as it is now, it’s not very enticing for me.


I think many players will just pull for HOTM :thinking: Like me :face_holding_back_tears:


Not just Waterpipe. He’s really good in defence and attack for RT Bloody. :rofl::joy:

And in events with pesky overbuffed minion summoner bosses.

Can’t wait for the next hero with a passive that renders fiends useless. :rofl::joy:

And another with a passive that boosts ally health by 600 each time their health drops below 50%. :rofl::joy:


Yes, next up will be Dragon with anti-fiend passive. In 2024. :rofl::joy::rofl:


Less talk about the tiger than the rabbit, is he less popular? He looks super ripped at least :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:


He’s a furry. Twenty furries

I want both! Bwahahahaha


2 of him dropped for me in around 25 token pulls. Then Ahmose from the dunes portal. Brb flying to Vegas to test this luck :rofl:


Would be nice to read a comparison of these two
Don’t know which to pick, if I could :grin:

Happy gaming

Does this mean he over heals? Doesn’t specify health can exceed max hp so I’m not sure.

Yes, Or at least I would imagine so. Boosted health boosts health above the normal maximum so is also Overheal. At least it is with all other heroes who boost health

Game Well :sunglasses: :mechanical_arm: :wolf:


Ok it does…


A super Passive that will impact an entire class of hero. I wrote a full review here for any interested:


My sentiments for the passive as well, OP to the point where it is broken. It needs to affect all minions in play including your own to act as a type of minion equalizer format.
This passive to me kind of spells the end of this game, it’s only the Dev’s short term plans on how to solve the current meta’s problematic minion summoners, and maybe doom the new summoner Sorrow. But by doing that, they fundamentally destroyed the entire minion mechanic
It is so bad imo, bera got nerfed by a passive. Let that sink in
