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 hero makes both versions of Killhare look just silly.

I can see that the two new heros are going to be broken in VF war because the normal trick of mana block are very likely to backfire… Imagine you used Miki on those heros and with a 40%/60% chance, your entited team got muted for 6 turns…(except Miki)

Is Miki’s mana-block counted as a buff that affects defense?
The card looks to me like only defense-down buffs are potentially cast back.

Test-Driving Nyx … not quite finished, but still playable!


Thx for the video and review.

Why do you expect her to cast back all negative effects? On the card it says that defense down may be reflected back.
Happy gaming

Absolutley not if tjat were the case Zhang fei would repel mana block back … mana blck has nothing to do with defence

I erred. It was a mistake in reading the card. I have been diagnosed with permanent, incurable case of being human which comes with the ability to make endless mistakes :slight_smile:


Hahah nice try :wink:
I will use that phrase on my job from now on.

Happy gaming

Would you use Nyx on defence?

No, I almost never use the heroes with different charge levels on defense as they fire immediately when at low health which often makes them easier to kill.

just pulled her today from coin pull 5, eager to take her for a test spin :slight_smile:


nicee ibwas diappointed with the new heros so far shes and hypnos are still the top dogs until thanatos comes out lol


that’s good to know… I appreciate my luck even more :slight_smile: she is my first tower 5* ever

Got her with a single coin pull saved from the last tower event.

I’ve had Killhare at 3/70 for a year and a half now; guess she’ll have wait longer because my Tabards are going to Mother Night.


I wouldn’t run her on defense because to get her to 300% would require 18 tiles and whatever the corresponding defensive value of that would be. I see your point… But she is a bad fit on vf def.

I got her about an hour ago the unlike many of my pulls where i eventually grow to like/love the hero… This is love at first sight.


I have senan on the cusp of going to 4.1… But it would be more interesting story if i didn’t have 21 tabbards…

Though… I am changing my tc20s to tc2s… I’ll trade in February for a decent 5* in the soul exchange rather than in November… I don’t want nyx on a slow back burner…
