My enthusiasm is because of this:
-She is average, so with the right mana troop becomes essentially fast and charges in 9 tiles.
-When she fires she summons beefy minions for all (260 at +20 focusing on hp without taking into account limit breaking or troops).
-Minions benefit in this way: they take the HP from the summoner (and she has more hp than several 5*s, it’s way easier to ascend and doesn’t require mats), and get the defense from the owner of the minion. So those +290/300ish hp in my LotL or MN defense are not squishy minions, also because of the -24% attack ailment.
-My team is speeded up.
I imagine a team with LotL and a taunter, for instance. Mielikki will summon her minions before Lotl, so LotL’s minions will be more protected against slash attacks while the taunt will protect them from abilities.
Good post. People are only looking at the hero itself and not the synergy. This hero’s minions on their own will disappear quickly. But I picture firing of my Arco AND Freya and suddenly Mielikki’s minions are stuck behind a beefy wall of minions that are tough to kill, so effectively I have a solid mana boost for a long time during the raid.
In fact, I’ve thought about the sinergies with this hero that speeds up and “protect” other relevant minions like LotL, but it could be the other way round as you have pointed out: beefy minions that protect hers and your team is speed up for a longer time.
I’d go 3 red and 2 other colors… And she’s dead with 5 red tiles… Or 5 red heroes and she’s dead with 3 red tiles. She had resistance against specials… But not tile damage… And at tank… That’s all there is for the first 5-7 moves.
Alternatively… Grimble removes all of the minions and charges my heroes and 20% mana gen for the surrounding heroes… It’s not bad… But same with Hulda… Only the worst boards, can’t get to 9 dark tiles, will cause you to lose. it happens… But we are talking about the worst 5% boards possible.
The only reason my enthusiasm is tempered for her is that i have a costume yunan and his 33% mana gen doesn’t overwrite hers… But… Paired with pengi… He becomes very fast and what’s not to like about that.
