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:

I have a feeling this hero is gonna get stealth changed in some way. Hope she gets bumped to average speed and dropped to 4 turns. This is literally hatter and lady Loki in one


omg too much to O P hope she will be very slow or nerfed

Lol if Gilligan is on the enemy’s team I suppose this would help him charge up right? Say Gilligan’s team mate is Kiril and all of Kiril’s buffs go back to the other side

If she does not get nerfed, there’s only one way to win. Hope she doesn’t go off and snipe her asap.
Hawthorne is already completely OP; this one is next level.

The only thing missing is ‘and these reflects cannot be cleansed’.


I have a question, let’s say if you have the dispel shield buff, can it protect all your buffs from getting reflected?

A worthy blue tank for rush, lined with other worthy slowpokes. And useful for events, mana aided.

Hope she gets buffed to average. Heh heh


Probably not. But the ailment block or cleanse should work, this reflect looks to be a status ailment.
It could be fun if Milady fired at Kitty :wink:

“Hehehe… you think you’re going to get another recharge on your taunt, huh Ludwig…lulz. That taunt and mana boost are all coming to my friends. Oh, and that healing block that you do, Xiatou? Right back at ya.” – Milady de Winter

So for clarification, if she gets her special to fire, then the enemy Grazul fires her ailment blocker (which lasts for 2 turns), de Winter steals that buff and gets it for 6 turns? Or the stolen buff still lasts for 2 turns, and de Winter’s steal last for 6 turns? I’m asking because I doubt I’ll get this hero.

Wrong skill name. The correct name is “Masterful Manipulation”.

Man… Guardian chameleon was definitely the way to go in the first soul exchange.

Im very Curious to see what Upon Release Stealth Changes they will make to Milady.

Any ideas? Lets Brain storm. I expect these shady nerfs.

(When Queen Anne was released, somone who edits there cards on the forums said they just hadn’t got around to adding the nerfs to the card before release… now we see that its been a calculated decision since then, not a mistake by an editor)

Eh. A cleanser and a dispeller and all she does is 385% at slow speed. Any of the status blockers or buff blockers will work as well.

I really love the book and glad this lady has turned up.


Annabelle will have a field day with Milday.
They more I study her card the more I realize her damage is all shes got. By the time she fires .I can prepare to survive with defence buffs, and then Annebelle will.take care of her secondary mechanics


I’m seeing some “lol Annabelle can just counter Milady” responses and thinking

  • Milady’s presence nigh-forces the presence of Annabelle, as opposed to, some devastating 5*
  • Between facing an enemy Milady and bringing your own Annabelle, Milady is basically dictating that you not bring/rely upon significant number of buffs or debuffs
  • Milady’s special nigh-forces timing issues (i.e. Annabelle must, if at all possible, be charged up before Milady and not fired until Milady fires)

And of course all of this is only looking at Milady’s utility in purely PvP. Against a range of PvE bosses her ability would seem pretty useful, not least for players who don’t literally already have everything else.
