I don’t get that ‘random hit’ thing. Does she just inflict Shifting mindless to 3 targets? Cuz that would be OP at fast speed … even more than Luna.

1 Like

I believe that it means that a random 1 of the 3 hit targets by the damage, will receive shifting mindless attack :+1:

I fully expect her to be buffed on release, as the other heroes have been, so t… taking this with a grain of salt for the time being!

Ah, ok, that makes sense. Anyway it is possible everything we discuss here will go out of window once she’s been released and buffed as you say.

That’s how I read it too. Not claiming I’m right. And to @Orion_Fervor’s point, all bets are off until we see if there are any chance going from beta to live game.

Anyone else disappointed this hero isn’t an old black woman whose special is called Hallelujar?

I’m not sure it’s sick, I think it looks good!

Preety cool design. See how much better this is than all that toon BS?

Also, this one hits like a truck. Untold Tales has some monsters. Havent pulled a single 5* from there so far but i regularly get crushed by them.

A possible bug?

“ A random hit target automatically casts Shifting Mindess Attack on a random ally when mana is full at the start of a turn during 3 turns. ”

In reality the MA can end up at any of enemies based on several tests. I have fired on enemies that don’t have full mana, hence on of the 3 should get MA. It looks like one random hit will cast forward the MA without waiting to having full mana.

This is worse, obviously. Could someone verify. Thx

Happy gaming

that random hit target part doesnt belong to the damage part of special skill so any opponent can get mindless attack ?

this i do not understand
“It looks like one random hit will cast forward the MA without waiting to having full mana.”

you saying its shifting directly without mana being full?

Her special is poorly written. Sg is really not going their due diligence. Get it together.

Who gets mindless? The peeps she hits… Is there a randomness 4th hero that is targeted? Good Lord.

I mean, you hit 3 enemies and it looks like one of them get MA but he transfers MA to another random. I am not sure if this is the case…

But I am sure that MA goes sometimes to someone else, beside the 3 that were hit.

I hope you understand what I mean?

This is not the case every time. I have yet to be able to reproduce that result, but I was limited to 5 attempts (friendly battles).

That’s how she was in the fights in Chapter 5 and Chapter 6 too. Despite the wording reading like it would be either of the 3 targets, it’ll sometimes be an entirely different hero that wasn’t struck at all (i.e. Medea strikes tank hero and flanks but will debuff a wing enemy instead of choosing tank or flanks).

The skill could definitely be reworded to “A random enemy” or the hero AND the bosses in the stages she’s featured need to be redone to actually “randomly select a hit target.”
