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:

First pull from the Festival portal. Currently levelling him up, as I have no other real projects to speak of. That mana generation sounds great to pair with Treevil.


That’s exactly what I’m thinking paring phoenicus with treevil


Bauchan is from the same family as Treevil, is also a 3* red monk and also provides the same mana generation boost of +24% for 4 turns instead of phoenicus’ 3 turns but at average speed. Worth considering/replacing?

It’s surely debatable. But I would go Bauchan because of the mana cut that he does on the opponent. However, when the Challenge festival comes around again, I’d pair Treevil with Phoenicus for the increased bonus.

Phoenicus kinda does the same things that Hawkmoon and Bauchan do (minus the healing and the mana cut…however it would be nice if Phoenicus could do that as well. That would be lowkey OP).

If you’re not going rainbow, why not use both?

Just pulled Phoenicus. Dumb that everybody gets the buffs but him, but at fast speed… ok. However, some great points are made about Bauchan being a better pairing. To me, I feel like Bauchan would be better on defense and the reason why is that pesky mana cut. It’s the same deal with Li Xiu:

You get an amazing cascade that charges EVERYBODY, but defense gets to go before you get to fire anybody and Bauchan will cut everybody’s mana just enough to where nobody can fire until at least the next turn… if you survive anybody else on defense who gets to fire along with Bauchan.

This effect isn’t as appealing on offense. I think I’d rather go with the attack bonus that Phoenicus comes with.
