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:

I just got him. Is he any good?

1 Like

He is average, both on damage and effects. He doesn’t provide any unique skill either.

I got him too. I will max him purely so i have an extra hero for the towers etc

Can anyone clarify his passive vs ice please:

States the burn is uncleanseable and last 2 turns longer, but doesn’t mention any increase in the burn damage itself.
Does the burn itself increase 50%, along with the duration, or does it dilute the DoT?

Probably the difference in making him kinda, versus absolutely not, useable but there’s a family bonus to consider.

I’ve just tested it, it increases the damage for 2 turns. Lemminkainen 1/1 vs any enemy 80 burn damage, vs blue enemies 20 damage per turn for 6 turns for a total of 120.


Thanks, much appreciated


Well, I guess Lemminkäinen is… definitelly a 4* hero that… exists in this game.


I feel that lemminkainen’s only purpose right now is to be paired with mielekki so that she gets more fire defence. This guy really has nothing much to offer


If you compare him to the 4* red Sun Shang he’s dreadful

And of course I got 3 of them, FML

They’re releasing 50 heroes for month and can’t even make one different than S1 kelile :no_mouth::neutral_face::expressionless:


he needs a buff
is underpoweredbcompared to all new 4 * heroes released


He looks cool… yeah that’s about it. Got him as well but dont see myself levelling him anytime soon. With the average speed his dmg is very underpowered.


@PlayForFun Could you make a balance discussion topic for Lemminkäinen ?

Yes, I will add it later today


I pulled him but not sure what to make of him, not exactly enthusing me, I might level him if I don’t have any other candidates

I really want to like this hero… But still didn’t find purpose to max him. He’s sitting on 1-1 since Kalevala.
