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:

Ray could pair well with Milena, if you choose to use both on their 2x charges. Ray heals and cleanses his allies, while Milena hits hard and dispels the opponent.

Also noticing that Ray, Telonius and Camila do not hit with direct damage. Interesting commonality with the new Wizard heroes.

Ray needs to be paired with those very fast hitters within red

Really good hero matched with them

It seems this hero came with a small buff to burn damage.
Hero card is updated. Polls are enabled.

I got him. Not sure how excited. Maybe take falcon place vs green titans? Maybe good to pair with fast reds. I have Hathor so don’t really need the debuff on red team. I will level him and see where he fits in

I feel the same way but that dispel in 5 to 6 tile is very useful

Great utility, especially against titans. Having so much utility in one hero can be risky, but I’d still level him up.

I don’t understand why the Magic family is getting sports heroes, maybe a planned sports event got scrapped and the art repurposed? Although the art is otherwise great.

I don’t like the idea of a damage dealer who includes an elemental damage modifier that doesn’t work with their own damage.

Is it accurate that burn damage is unaffected by element defense down?

If so, the previous posters are spot on that this guy needs to be used with fast reds (but not ones with burn damage).

This heroe’s art is a complete non sequitur… that and the mage ball girl. Although mage ball makes more sense in a Harry Potter sort of way. Maybe they should have named him Johnson. That might have worked…

I like Ray…. For his multiple use….

Both options are good, though I like and would use his first option more.

  • Since he doesn’t damage directly, that debuff @ VF speed is cool & keeps him safe against counterattacks while starting :fire: & lining up others to whack.

    Yep, got him !

Congratulations :tada:. I got him too. Wasn’t sure about him. Might come Handy in a team with charge heroes.

Is he the only hero that can dispel all heroes at VF speed?

Yes, he is the only hero that dispels @ VF….
or
as some accuracy nerds like to say…faster than very fast speed :wink:

New burn damage overwrites the previous one….so ideally avoid two burn damage heroes together….
So
Serandite won’t party with Ray.

But if one wants to keep burn damaging going non-stop for play & fun….I might team them together for am entertaining video…:grinning:

About your EDD point….all the heroes that give EDD have to wait for their next turn to damage directly in tune with that EDD ailment….
But
Meanwhile, their other elemental allies & tiles get the benefit of the EDD ailment given….
So
What’s not to like about EDD !?:face_with_raised_eyebrow:
