:thought_balloon: What do you think of Li ?

This thread is for thoughts and discussion on Li.

Based on preferences Forum members have expressed, please try to stick mainly to Li and not wander off topic too much to other heroes.

Some Popular Questions for Discussion

  • Is Li worth summoning for?

  • Would you use Li on Defense? Offense? War? Quests/Events? Titans?

  • Which heroes on your Roster best pair with Li ?

  • What heroes would you take when facing Li as an opponent?

  • Would you give Li Paladin Emblems? Which Talent Grid path will you choose?

  • What do you think of special?

  • What do you think of Li’s character design?

  • If you Summoned Li and would like to post your results, please include some thoughts on why you Summoned Li, and whether/how you plan to make use of them.*

*NOTE: Summon Results posted without any commentary/feedback at all should be flagged as Off Topic and removed, based on preferences expressed by the Forum community. Please include some comments about what you think of Li when posting Summon Results. In addition to opinions about Li, you are also encouraged to include how many Summons it took before receiving Li (or how many Summons you’ve done without receiving Li), so other players are presented with realistic experiences of the rarity of Rare Event Hero.


:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:
Or: How many summons are needed to get a Rare Challenge Event Hero?

It’s important to remember that Challenge Event Heroes have EXTREMELY low summoning odds. No amount of summoning will guarantee a Challenge Event Hero.

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 33.2% chance of summoning Li.

But that statistic can lead our minds astray in exactly how our odds play out as we continue summoning.

Some useful insights:

  • 55 times out of 100, you’ll get Li by pull 20 (5,200 gems)
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Li by pull 75 (19,700 gems)
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Li by pull 115 (30,100 gems)

Putting that in Perspective

  • 45 out of every 100 people won’t get Li by the 20th pull
  • If 1 Million players each summoned :two::zero: times, 446,630 of those players wouldn’t get Li * 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Li by the 75th pull
  • If 1 Million players each summoned :seven::five: times, 48,675 of those players wouldn’t get Li
  • 1 out of every 100 people won’t get Li by the 115th pull
  • If 1 Million players each summoned :one::one::five: times, 9,710 of those players wouldn’t get Li

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:


:thinking: Wondering About Your Personal Situation?

Feel free to discuss your team and roster here, and ask for advice from other Forum members.

Hopefully, this one will be less disappointing than Vollermork. Should be fun for rush and bloody tournaments.

Jahangir with random burn DOT in a nutshell

2 Likes

I compared Li to other slow reds.

Hero Attack Special % Secondary
Li 480 160% Minion who applies 108 burn over 3 turns
CB.Jahangir 522 145% 120 burn over 6 turns
C.Jahangir 514 115% 156 burn over 6 turns
Surdri 439 120% +24% damage per red tile

This was the first comparison I made too. Jahangir has a higher base attack state, doesn’t have a minion, and can get down to 6 tiles in rush format. All of those have situational benefits. But a long lasting minion continually applying burn is pretty nice too.

I’m not sure if I’ll use Li for challenge events. The minion is a negative. I could go for a Jahangir for better tile damage. Or Surdri for a higher “max damage”.

I don’t use Jahangir and Surdri in non rush format, so I wouldn’t use Li either. In rush, the area I see Li being better is against a defensive team without a healer. Sometimes I go healer heavy and whittle them down over time. This is where Li can outperform his counterparts by bringing the “extra health” via minion. With Treevil being so prevelant, I don’t use this strategy as much anymore.

So I’m not sure where I would use Li as I have CB.Jahangir and Sudri. Li is my least favorite of the three new rare heroes.

I think he’s going to be like what kvasir would be. The soldier minions can be used as meatshields. But he’s probably only great for rush

A Burn Nature hero… :thinking:

The thread title is wrong. He’s a Fire/Red hero
