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:

still a hero that stands the test of time, in my opinion :slight_smile: I was fortunate enough to get 2 of him, and use both every war.


I agree, I can’t say how many times I used Proteus trying to beat some difficult stages or quests. With +20 emblems and LB he’s still quite fragile, but he’s invaluable for me. I like mana controllers of all kinds.


Yeah still a great hero very handy for new folk trying to clear the map or events or trials …
Got 2 maxed only been given two … One +7 mainly use in 4* tournaments and VF war now.
but definitely worth maxing 2-3 of this hero.


He has done a great job of avoiding me. I have stock piled on Hansel, Gretel, Merlin, Little John, Chao (in and out of costume), Leonidas, Peters, (not so much Li Xiu), etc. On difficult things I bring multiple mana control heroes. If I had Proteus I could do what needed to be done with just 1 hero slot.

At this point if I do get him I would not use him out of personal spite: “Sure, NOW you show up… :face_with_symbols_over_mouth:”. Smart play would be using him though, I am just stubbornly unsmart :laughing:



Proteus seems to be the go to - response for so many questions. “How can I do xx stage if I am underpowered”. The answer is often “Just bring Proteus”. A wildly popular four star - mana control is everything.


He was the second 4* I ever got… I was elated :slight_smile:
have my first one now LBed and +19, and with a level 17 mana troop charges in 9 tiles.

I have since been lucky enough to get Hansel, Gretel and Merlin… but Proteus is still the mana controller of choice when there are 2 or more enemies.


The only S2 4* I couldn’t manage to get and probably never will. I really don‘t know why he refuses to pop out of this portal. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: As I‘m not doing much S2 pulls theses days, it will not be easy to get him. :wink:


Yup. There’s a good reason for that. Who care if there are OP heroes if you can stop them from gaining mana so they don’t fire. There is an obvious snag against cleric and monk classes, but otherwise, once you can get him to fire in 9 tiles or less, it’s pretty much a win. That’s aside from challenge and events. That being said, some of the later season 4 maps have immunity to ailments, so he is useless there.


I got him yesterday after chasing him for months. I will insta max, emblem and LB him. Hopefully he will be one of my most used purple heroes.


congrats! He’s a wonderful hero, enjoy!


When is proteus getting a costume?? He needs a buff of some sort so he’s not so squishy. Great hero but really needs a costume at this point for at least the costume bonus if nothing else.


Is it just me or should the costume for this guy look like / be called „Mr. Nimbus“ with a „controls the police“ passive skill?

Hé may not be the newest with the best stats, but he was still my second 4* ever and a big game changer - and I still use him daily :slight_smile: so he gets the alpha aethers


Nice! Good to see that he is sturdy enough after 2LB and he gains some extra DoT!

I still use him in every war and in raids as needed not to mention to events where mana control is needed.


Yeah he’s still quite relevant today :slight_smile:


Him and 2nd costume LiXiu are really helpful all over!

Why not give him the last node for an extra 30 or so damage?


Thanks for asking! Only reason I don’t is because I need my wizard emblems for other heroes. Anyway, I use him mainly for the mana control so the extra damage is less of a priority :slight_smile:


Hmm maybe I will strip my Proteus and save those emblems as well :smiley:
