:no_entry_sign: Resists Dispels

The hero has an innate ability to resist dispels of buffs.

:dizzy: Special Skill: Hide in Shadows

  • The caster and nearby allies have from +20% to +90% chance of dodging special attacks that do damage. The higher the damage from the special is, the higher the chance to dodge it. Each dodge gives a moderate amount of mana to the target. Effect lasts for 3 turns.
  • Element Link gives all Nature allies +46% defense against Fire for 4 turns. This effect can’t be dispelled.

:test_tube: Changes from Beta

There appear to be no changes to Margaret from her last-seen beta stats, skill, and design.


:thought_balloon: What do you think of Margaret?

Some Popular Questions for Discussion

  • Will you use her on Defense? Offense? Quests/Events? Titans?

  • Will you give Margaret Rogue emblems? Which Talent Grid path will you choose?

  • What do you think of her special?

Or: How many summons are needed to get a HOTM?

Special thanks to @Garanwyn for assistance on summoning odds and proofreading for this section.

It’s important to remember that HOTM have very low summoning odds. No amount of summoning will guarantee a HOTM.

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 12.3% chance of summoning the HOTM.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 73 times out of 100, you’ll get a HOTM by pull 100
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get a HOTM by pull 229
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get a HOTM by pull 352

Putting that in Perspective

  • 27 out of every 100 people won’t get the HOTM by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 100 times, 270,000 of those players wouldn’t get the HOTM

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get the HOTM by the 229th pull

  • If 1 Million players each summoned 229 times, 50,000 of those players wouldn’t get the HOTM

More Insights & Reading

I highly recommend reading these two 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.

If you’d like more extensive advice on sorting out your particular roster, I recommend creating a new thread in #gameplay-help-tactics, and posting screenshots of your hero roster, along with your questions.


:bulb: Have an Insight on Margaret’s Game Mechanics?

This thread is a great place to discuss anything and everything related to Margaret.

Once those discussions have yielded notable insights, I encourage others to make reference guides in #player-guides that synopsize specific questions and answers about Margaret.

Topics that are most appropriate for that are ones that players are likely to be searching for or wondering about in the future.

Creating a guide is a good way to make that information findable in the future without having to read through a ton of posts. You can make use of the Forum quote feature to avoid having to rewrite explanations that have already been well written.

Here’s an example of such a post: [GUIDE] How does the Queen of Hearts’ Taunt work with AoE specials, or specials affecting nearby enemies in addition to the target?

They do, and Anzogh in April was meant to be male. Thus, female now for May.

Devs are fond of Senior Citizen Warriors. She looks like this old lady from the streets of New York selling Hotdog. Probably related to Onatel.

Ah! No…it alternates each month. At least that’s the current system, and continues through August at least (that’s all that’s in beta so far).

Or MN her daughter!

I have not given it many taughts yet if I would like to receive her or not. But seeing the amount of pulls I can make I don’t have my hopes up yet :wink:

So my wife just did a pull and got the HOTM. I thought the special was pretty great. Especially with the Very Fast Mana gen. I think it’s really awesome giving everyone the chance to dodge and her attack stat will be amazing against Titans

I like her…

Crazy high attack stat, right? Anyone higher?

Special skill dodge chance plus emblems could potentially give her 100% Dodge v certain snipes?

In mho she likes like a great hero for strong titans especially blue titans. Imagine almost your whole team dodging the titans special over and over. I will try for her (and therefore probably not get her). :laughing::joy:
