🏯 Ninja Hero Thoughts & Discussion Thread

Bought one 2.99 offer today and I got Onyx!! Absolutely stoked as I’ve been sitting on 6 tabs and my only other 5* purple to level is Obakan.

Also found a 19 node Garnet while raiding today - she didn’t seem that threatening on defense to be honest, definitely seems like a stand-out offensive support hero.

Frigg, GM, Finley and Jabber on the other hand…Absolutely terrifying…I got lucky so many times :rofl:


Do you guys think such a defense would work?

Should i replace ursena with onyx and put mitsuko as flank?

joke category… bad board simply powers up these new enemies, and they literally one shots team lol (can’t even dodge.)


There’s LOTS of great new stuff to discuss here.


Sweet! When I have a chance to play this, I’m all over it. Thanks!

ninjas are a crapshoot in defense teams

either vfast, average, or very slow

should be no issue killing them if they fire very slow. think that’s the balance system already in place for the ninjas on defense.

The blue one flanking is an interesting flank for tell.

I just maxed mica and his stats are tank worthy, but I can’t resolve myself to reset tell at this stage to try him as a tank…

i guess since never know how long he’ll wait to fire.

but his vslow charge is the most devastating, should be very low to no chance of him firing that off

reason we don’t see owl, alfrike, etc in defenses outside of vfast tourneys

good news though as even in vfast tourneys, the ninjas 3rd charge specials will still be vslow


Well at least don’t take Mitsuko against him x_x
Also we see more and more alfrike in tourney defense and she’s not doing that bad

i haven’t seen alfrike outside of vfast tourneys

but thanks for the tip and will keep an eye out

Agree but One Reason we don’t see owl and others is they compete for the same resources, but they require so much work, plus building a team around them to shine — it’s just not worth climbing that mountain and the pile of grief you catch :slight_smile:

Malosi is Really strong against purple slows

I did great in attack wars with owl on another account with a deep bench…

If memory serves

Freya, Aegir, Puss, Owl, QoH (or BK? Been a while…); emblemed up and trooped up

Averaged (Over time) almost a extra flag Spent per war over a more traditional lineup

There are lots of solid configurations — particularly outside the mana troops > all and other laws that have been chipped away at with each new release …

Think the ninjas will be similar — in they can be viable on a wildcard / honeypot defense; but the peer pressure to conform To cookie cutter Based on early impressions And ‘expert opinion’ will be tough to overcome

If they’re deemed to suck on defense early — it will be deemed Eternal truth :slight_smile:

Having said that — owls big boom can be absorbed much easier with the glut of high defense 1500+ hps, so he’s not as good of a ‘death blossom’, even if you do the work to grind him out… Like putting gas in a car that’s already been wrecked :slight_smile:

I’d still be interested in seeing him with a yellow ninja troop —

I agree, He’s not a great hero — but His wins have just been more pivotal that his losses or avg performances when measured in aggregate

Think their is a real opportunity with the ninjas in war to tinker with the margins on stalemate match ups where the boards are the biggest variable Because both sides have mitigated each other’s potential advantages of work / quality — as it adds a few extra tricks for the AI

Can someone post the full screen photos of cobalt and onyx? Like when you select the card and click the magnifier.

Have not been RNG blessed with Onyx. :stuck_out_tongue:

It’s the same view as when you see them in the Portal :wink:


@Mr.Spock (and anyone else reading now) I have added the artwork for the 8 ninja heroes to the OP. I also plan on adding in All-in-one infographics when I get the final go-ahead from the Content Creators.


I’m just trying to get them on the black background for video thumbnails. I found a few released images on Google on that grey background but only a few were available.

I made some pulls for this event and I got Jade (if only I had got Cobalt, as this ninja caused me a lot of trouble along the ninja tower).

Regarding the mana charge, I have tested Jade in some regular battles both with attack and defense troops, and she charges very randomly. Sometimes slow, sometimes really fast. As a tank, she could be useful, but I don’t find ninjas reliable on defense. In fact, if I could choose that they would attack with the 300% of charge, that would be interesting.

Did a 10 pull and a couple singles… landed Ametrine and Sapphire plus Zulag. Not bad. These 2 4* have about 5* attack power, might be good to round out a couple war teams.
