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:

Strong healer…with stat similarity to Gulli at average!

I managed to get him to 18 nodes on shield path. He’ll come in handy for rush war. Those defensive stats are amazing


Just pulled this guy. Along with Kara. On my 2nd Dunes pull nonetheless.
The first was Khonshu… rotfl

feels like I exhausted my luck in this game for next couple of years


just pulled him also, not sure if he any good

He is best setup with nearby Clenser, so that Alfrike Mindless can be cleansed.
Great for Rush War againts Alfrike.
And sun family chance boost HP which is also counter Alfrike :+1:


His passive also gives a chance for cleansing. Really like this one.


just pulled him, he will be my first ailment preventer (well, unless you count Malosi, but Malosi operates differently). looking forward to maxing him


I got him. He seems very underwhelming. Just healing ? My Costume Melendor does much more.

You’re underestimating him. I love C Mel, but he doesn’t give ailment protection. Ptolemy does and he heals the 3 heroes protected every time they would receive ailments. His passive also can boost health and cleanse. I really like this one and I will most likely use him in rush attack wars.


He’s amazing. You won’t be disappointed

Ok here is a thing:

Depending on your own meta you will either need more cleanse or more dispel.

Noteable topheroes that force you to take cleanse with you:
Frigg, Octros, Morel, White Rabbit, C-Alasie, C-Drake Fong, Faline.

Noteable topheroes that force you to take dispel in your team:

Krampus, Freya, BK, Inari, Hanitra, C-Kadi, Odin.

So comparing ptolemy and c-mel is like comparing c-rigard and c-sabina it does not make sense.


I was replying to the poster above me. He was the one who said C Mel was better than Ptolemy since Ptolemy “only heals”. I simply described what he does, cause in my view he has value.


I know and you got a point there just wanted to add that its useless to compare both or say either one is better than the other.

Is he worth mats even without emblems?

He only needs 4 shields so absolutely he’s worth it. Well, that depends on what stage of the game you are at, what your roster is, etc. I actually feel Costumed Melendor might be better if you’re raiding around the 1800 cups level.
You can never have too many healers though and if you progress with titans etc. you will soon find an abundance of 3* mats
