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:

May we get an explanation of how contagious works that will be preempt many questions?

If one enemy gets this effect then in the next turn the target’s neighbor enemies will get the same effect. The effect duration will be 3 for the neighbours same as the original target.
In the turn after that their neighbours also get this ailment.

This effect can be resisted by passive (etc…), but Taunt itself not protects against this ailment spreading.


I really like Rayne, love the new ailment contagion. Thanks for all the early information. Here are my thoughts, thanks.


Here are my thoughts!


Man… her Dot is over 1000 once she gets emblems

and that’s not even the end. 32points atk missing from last step of emblem path. Also another ~60 atk points for LB…

Also interesting thing, given you hit a fighter and that fighter dies in the next round plus revives himself. Then this fighter will still be infected when coming back…and poison will spread over. How evil is that


Pulled this event harder since I still needed Viscaro and Franz to keep my 4* complete and pulled Rayne, now I have to decide who goes first. And to think I was all ready to do the grimble from HA10, now he’s third place.


Decide between which heroes ? Rayne vs. Viscaro? vs. Grimble?

We do not ask such questions among these heroes! Rayne of course!
My dilemma is between Rayne, Domitia with C and Hell!

I did ascend C.Dom but actually rarely use her. Hell is fun I think (but I don’t own her), Rayne is even more fun I’d say ;).
No but seriously this decision of course depends on available emblems, your roster, plans for LB… If you were also lucky enough to pull Quintin then it’s 100% Rayne.

I have a question. If target die within the first turn of Rayne’s DoT, will the DoT spread ?


I just got Rayen while hoping for Ludwig. Not who I wanted, but definitely not disappointed. But I’m stuck now deciding between Rayne and Dark Lord. How do the two stack up against each other? Anyone know?

No. The target needs to survive one round


So, the ailment deal damage and the counter turn reduce by 1 before the ailment spread.

Thank you.

So he shares the same weakness of Sir Roostley. If the defense is already half beaten down and he kills the hero with his snipe then no speeding of his poison.

How does Rayne compare with Dark Lord? Any thoughts on that?
Appreciate your feedback in advance.

Not sure about vf wars. But this hero is likely not as good as you think.

Mainly due to the fact that it’s average speed and requires many turns to kill the opponent. All while the opponents are still alive and can kill your team.

You’d better off forming a team that can kill the opponent for certain.

I prefer Dark Lord because it has the same speed as Panther. Confirm kill, and has dispell. Mana slow and poison at the same time.


This would be Lady Locke, if instead of cleanse she did near sniper damage and buffed up base stats. These 2021/22 heroes are just insane.
