:thought_balloon: What do you think of Motega ?

This thread is for thoughts and discussion on Motega.

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

Some Popular Questions for Discussion

  • Is Motega worth summoning for?

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

  • Which heroes on your Roster best pair with Motega ?

  • What heroes would you take when facing Motega as an opponent?

  • Would you give Motega Sorcerer Emblems? Which Talent Grid path will you choose?

*NOTE: Summon Results posted without any commentary/feedback at all should be flagged as Off Topic and removed, based on preferences expressed by the Forum community. Please include some comments about what you think of Motega when posting Summon Results. In addition to opinions about Motega, you are also encouraged to include how many Summons it took before receiving Motega (or how many Summons you’ve done without receiving Motega), so other players are presented with realistic experiences of the rarity of Legendary Event Hero.

:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:
Or: How many summons are needed to get a Legendary Challenge Event Hero?

It’s important to remember that Challenge Event Heroes have EXTREMELY low summoning odds. No amount of summoning will guarantee a Challenge Event Hero.

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 1.65% chance of summoning Motega.

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

Some useful insights:

  • 15 times out of 100, you’ll get Motega by pull 100 (26,000 gems)
  • 56 times out of 100, you’ll get Motega by pull 500 (130,000 gems)
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Motega by pull 1,796 (467,200 gems)
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Motega by pull 2,761 (717,900 gems)

Putting that in Perspective

  • 85 out of every 100 people won’t get Motega by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each spent $259.97 (US) to summon :one::zero::zero: times, 846,364 of those players wouldn’t get Motega

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Motega by the 1800th pull

  • If 1 Million players each spent $4,671.53 US to summon :one::eight::zero::zero: times, 49,663 of those players wouldn’t get Motega

More Insights & Reading

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:

This is the one to get…


Motega is my favourite Tower of Magic hero. Both Specials are awesome but the -accuracy will be so frustrating. Here’s my full review.


Agree…this is the one I want. The others are great too, but this guy is amazing.


Got him, going to pair great with ureaus.

Wish his passive would not exclude yellow, but it is a very strong effect.


Got him too :slight_smile:

His first cast is vurneable to Skadi though :confused:

his fiends got nerfed from the beta and most feedback were saying his minions need small hp buff

while mileena got buffed and lot of feedback saying her damage is strong already

odd how SG thinks


His minions though, will also boost titan score for yellow squad :slight_smile:


Buzrig Fully ascends, levels and emblems Motega In just 13 mins… how is that even possible!?


What’s the best path for his emblems? Health/attack I am assuming to help boost the minions and the fiends?

Well, his primary role is healer/support, so I wouldnt take him offensive, especially if you plan on using him on defense. Minions have very low hp, so boosting his HP wont amount to any significant change.

Only argument for his attack route is titan damage.

Otherwise, I would recommend going tank route or balanced approach, since he is already sturdy on its own :wink:

But the fiends deal 43% attack each turn and the minions do whatever damage per turn so a higher base attack stat should work there no? My original thought was the same as yours but then I came up with the thought above. Thanks for the input. Much appreciated!

Yes, fiends attack is good argument for investing into attack… still in the end, balanced approach would net you the most, I think

I think you did the right thing. I didn’t do that with Elizabeth because I wanted to survive, but after seeing opposing Elizabeth’s fiend damage, it’s way more intimidating than mine. My fiends don’t see worrisome, but if I get hit with an Elizabeth’s attack path fiends, I feel way more urgency to clear them out.

Why is Motega so good? Many ppl prefer him as the best of magic heroes, why?

Could you please share your arguments.
Is Motega good in his own or even better in some synergy?

Happy gaming

I have him and I am not all that impressed at 3:70…

His minions die soo easily, so many times enemies dont even get proper debuffs since slash damage is already serious threat to a minion.

Fiends on other hand have strong passive ability, but he literally doesnt do any dmg.

He has unique buff for titans dmg, I give him that.

I also have dark 5* agrafena, and I am way more impressed with her at 3/70 then him. Both her specials work nicely and her second cast is very strong!

If I would need to rank them from strongest to weakest, id go : Milena, Nadhezda, Agrafena, Motega, Cyrstobal.

Crystobal is last, beacuse he is more situational than others. If he gets to do 400% dmg to all, then he can be among best heroes…

Motega probably also has nice combo with Bera poision dot dmg


I just got him. He seems pretty good. I guess we will soon see. :sunglasses::+1:t2:


I almost have Uraeus leveled, and my plan all along was to give him Sorcerer emblems. But tonight I pulled Motega (and Sergei, and Anton, and Alexandrine! Livin’ right!).

To which one would you give the Sorcerer emblems?

Tested him 3.70 on titans is definitly upping damage quite a bit.

6k damage on crit with wu kong and def down and extra damage.

He charges very fast it felt for me.

I think he can work decently on 3.70.
