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:

No one who is excited of him?
He was the best I got from the portal… I think he seems pretty nice, especially since the passive do some extra damage.


I too would like to see his stats maxed with emblems and lb :sweat_smile:

Few got him yet, I guess

I’ve got 2 of him, leveling one now, I will post what I think about him after I max him out


He is like upgrade version of Lemminkäinen who apply fiend instead of fire DoT :smile:.

I pulled him but not too excited. I think they shouldve made it 280% damage to target AND nearby enemies instead of minor damage to nearby enemies. Just my opinion as i have Cillian who does this damage already.

I got one of mine leveled, used him several times, combined with a mana troop his friends are pretty vicious for nine tile hitter, he should be a good one for raid tournaments

I’m finishing Asterius and Maheegan will be my next project. I’m also thinking he would be great for tournaments

Cillian’s base speed is 11 tiles which makes it pretty hard to get to 9 tiles from mana bonuses like you would with Maheegan. Yeah you’ll get there after some stacks but that takes some time. So I’d say Cillian should do more damage but you are also ignoring the fiend damage and the hunters mark. 150 damage to a random target from the mark. The fiends will do increasing damage as their attack builds and will absorb 35% healing which is the equivalent of a fair bit of damage in the end. Obviously immediate direct damage is more valuable than random dot damage, the fiend damage over time or the absorbing healing but there is still a lot of value in those and overall his kit looks very strong to me in-spite of not being a huge fan of the damage + minor damage to nearby targets.

Granted I’m pretty much F2P at this point and would be leveling him up either way but I am excited about having gotten him and look forward to leveling him.


Bump. Any new info? Should I level her? How do like using her?

Typical my luck… I just got a second one of this pile of garbage, by far the worst of all the Monster Hunters…
I want the 3star heroes! Those are amazing. But no luck…

I leveled and emblemed this hero. Not aethers enough for limit break

Not the best but it was very useful in the last 4* bloody battle.

My attack team was Maheegan, G Falcon, Cillian, Xiahou and Sonya

This team took me to 23-2. It was a nice combo


Good stats , good sinergy with Jean Francois


Not a bad team, but I would argue Maheegan is the weak link, Gormek would be way better, the damage increase through DD would be higher than some fiends, but lets say they are about equal. Add the fact that bloody battle is the one niche where there is a resemblance of justification for using him. How many 4star bloody battles are there every year (that don´t exclude red)? I would guess maybe 1 or 2? Nope sorry, I don´t see it. I don´t upgrade a hero, that is not much worse than other heroes I have for 2 occasions a year…
And now I chose a cheap option that everybody has for comparison. Other heroes would certainly be better than Gormek.

In summary you have an average speed hero (which is not great in 4s world without mana troops to start with) that has a weak hit and minor nearby and the only additional thing are some fiends that don´t do anything besides some DOT.
There´s just nothing there to make him special.

I am not saying he is the worst hero in the game, he is the worst of all the monster hunter heroes, overall he is rather average quality hero, but nothing worth upgrading after you have 4 or 5 red 4star heroes in your roster. Would I upgrade him if he was my only red 4s hero? Absolutely! But that is not the case.

I completely agree with you. As you said I’m just showed that in my team he has performed well and that his minions are annoying enough.

Also he was on my defense team that has kicked asses the last 4* tournaments thanks to synergy with Aoudhan

Certainly comparing to the other Hunters I agree he’s not the best (it’s the most common) and I agree that Gormek could have performed well (if aí had him)

How does he have good synergy with JF?

Tournament that starts dec 5 is a 4* no-blue bloody battle tournament, so I assume he will be very good in that as a fiend maker since there will be no way to get rid of them.

I thought JF was Jean Francois…
