  • All allies get +130% normal attack that only applies when the enemy has more HP than the attacker. Stacks with similar status effects up to a maximum of +170% normal attack. The effect lasts for 5 turns.
  • The target and nearby enemies get silenced for 4 turns.
  • Element Link gives +4% mana generation for all Ice allies for 4 turns. This effect can’t be dispelled.

:test_tube: Changes from Beta

There appear to be no changes to Miki from his last-seen Beta stats, skill, and design.


:thought_balloon: What do you think of Miki?

This thread is for initial thoughts and discussion on Miki.

Based on preferences of Forum members expressed recently, please try to stick mainly to Miki and not wander off topic too much to other heroes.

Some Popular Questions for Discussion

  • Is he worth summoning for?

  • Would you use him on Defense? Offense? War? Quests/Events? Titans?

  • Would you give Miki Barbarian emblems? Which Talent Grid path will you choose?

  • What do you think of his special?

  • What do you think of his character design?

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.

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

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

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?

I must get that lady to Beat all the red titants

Welp. I guess we get to find out a hero only for titans is…

Welcome, Miki :smiley:

Saving my EHTs and will be doing a 10 pull for the event… hoping to add you to the blue stack for Red Titans.

A lady? Thought he looked like a guy…
Miki really looked good to have, I will like him more for attacks (offense mostly): raids, Titans, even for events,…slow may be but I think, once he unleashes those specials, the tide can change.

He’s nuts for titans, but I think you’re being overly optimistic about his raid potential.

I’d love to pull them for red titans, would be an amazing combo with Kiril and Frida, but as C2P, better to not get my hopes up.

On another note, I find the artwork quite intriguing and like the ambiguity around their gender.

Together with Ranvir, he seems to be catered to 13*/14* titans in the future.

For raids, silencing 3 heroes is great especially in a pinch but the buff is not effective enough.
He is like another of those reversal heroes where he silences the opponent while buffing allies when the team is losing.

agreed. By the time he fires it’s too little too late

Using Miki and Ranvir in one team isn’t a good idea.

4 Likes

Agreed, although I used slow manas…ie. Kún…often on raid offense. Most time it paid off, so in his case with the right support I can just imagine how those specials will pay off as well.

@Petri Miki has the same translation error on the german card as Seshat had. Currently it says elemental link gives +4% LIFE to all ice allies …

EDIT: just checked - after one month, Seshat still has the wrong text on the card. This should be an easy fix!?

I don’t think there is any ambiguity regarding his gender. He is an Eskimo (Inuit) gentleman, just like lady Alasie who is the female counterpart. :slight_smile:

What I meant was both Miki and Ranvir are catered for high level titans.

Ranvir = 5* Wu

Miki = Tarlak with silencing spell against titans

Use 1 of the 2 when against titans

Nice. I wish I had 18 telescopes lol. I have 6 for Ariel and need another 6 for Aegir. I guess I’m not pulling for Miki…
