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:

Op heroes like this are killing the game sadly.


If it was any faster it would be super ridiculous. And she’s already just plain ridiculous.

Average down to 9 tiles and she’s into autowin mode.


her special is just an auto win feature. come on? for average speed? lmao… no more words bc it´s not like my opinion would make any difference.


Oh no, there are so many Zulags, Glendas, Reubens, Bertillas and Ureauses shivering in dark corner because their shiffy [f → t] minions. And hey … all druids, cause they summon minions too xD


Any minion or fiend summoner is just wrecked in 9. 9 tiles can come quick. I’ve been ruining people with Hel in 9 tiles. And this lady is a leap ahead of Hel in power.


omg it works agains all druids :frowning: for the love of god :S

Does it work vs C kadilen? or Inari?

Useful for those who dont have a heavy bench. Otherwise with 9 tiles, you win already.

think no as its not direct minion summon, but if we go by text then yes. Can anyone from beta confirm it?

They went too far in hit all heroes. Soon we’ll have a 800% damage to all fast hero. This hero is just the epitome of the ridiculous. Not even 95% of slow hit all heroes can do that much damage neither have those stats. Jesus.


The extra damage should not affect druids, in general (unless they summon minions). Puss-in-boots does not summon a minion for druids, so Penolite should not do extra damage to druids


The answer should be “yes”. Puss-in-boots summons a minion for cKad, so I believe cKad is considered a minion summoner. Not sure about Inari, but it should be the same effect for Inari. Penolite is OP, IMO!

We have tested it and a fellow Beta Tester have also asked Staff about it in Beta area of the forum, and it will not work on Druids:

I have added clarification to the OP about this.

HoTMs with minion summoning Elemental Link (Glenda, Reuben, …) are considered as minion summoners.


that ■■■■■■■ sux these heros are not the best heros already and now get worse?

the elemental link for minions is now a clear punishment, these heros would be better of not having an elemental link at all.

make it fiend summoners only.

To be fair, this is a 0.1% hero, Myztero level pull chance. So she’s gonna be OP


Yes, this is rare. Terrible odds…
Just like most other 5*
Only they get featured from time to time.

I’m unable to find the "Myztero is OP" debate


Is the punchline
