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:

Unless otherwise changed, this is the one to hope for. Miles ahead of Boom&Fang as they both currently sit


The hero card is updated with the changes.
Polls are now enabeled.


Agreed, how in the world did B&F get literally the bare bones of skills while madhammer got so much stuff, and they’re in the same batch of heroes


I went Attack-Route with Mana-Node, here are the Stats:


God darn it, so fast…

I honestly don’t think so. Boom&Fang seems to me like a top Defense-Hero with the bump up of her Minions Health on Release. A 55% HP MeatShield, thats not subsceptible to Max.HP-Reduce in combination with an undispellable Counterattack… :scream: We will see for that in the next days.

Madhammer is rather “okay”. She is hindered by the 50% chance for the 2nd hit. Even her first Hit isn’t that strong for an average Mana Hero (at least nowadays…cough Shawujing cough)


I’m worried about that blow from the mega henchman
The 145% attack of the mega henchman inherited from the hero, where should it be taken from the 500% attack of the hero?
That is to say, 145% of 500% is that the attack of the Magasecuaz?

Rather ok but still 2 lb :sweat_smile:

:Small Giant likes:

My original comment was made before the adjustments were made to both heroes. With Boom&Fangs minion now at 200% attack and Mad Hammer’s 2nd hit being cut back from 600%, I do agree that they’re closer to each other now, but I would still be happier with Mad Hammer as I prefer direct damage, as well as having a minion and their secondary skill over counterattack to one.


Don’t you also think, that e.g. ShaWujing is still on a different level? But one has to work with what the portal gives :wink:

it was more about how some players nowadays do have ressources to do double limit breaks on “rather ok” new heroes just for “fun” and “testing”

sg likes that - triple limit break and quattro limit break soon to come :heart_hands:

Uhm, never said anything about “only fun & testing”? Why did you come to this conclusion? :thinking:

Saying he is “okay” means, he is not as OP as ShawWujing & Co., but that does not automatically means that he is bad either :kissing_heart:


2 rolls from free coins :crazy_face:


Hell yeah!!!


Im Lucker of the Mounth. 4 gobin in 12pull


Well certainly didn’t have time to level an emblem it but I am super happy to have pulled her today, and last night managed to pull smartongue and a second kettle, will gladly take four goblins in roughly 30 pulls


:fire:Hammer is :rage:


Anyone have the opportunity to use the giant minion in raids? Has anyone faced it a few times? Is it overwhelming? A squishy meat shield? TIA
