Found a very big Sartana fan :stuck_out_tongue:


Maybe they just don’t have other Dark 5* :slight_smile:

Or the other are Quintus and Obakan and for sure regular Sartana is better than them on defense. Although I imagine they are trying to lose cups with this mono defense


yes I know, they are a level 75 player so I assumed they were cup dropping :stuck_out_tongue: just making a joke about the Sarty triplets, hence the :stuck_out_tongue: in my earlier post

So, I have base Sartana +10. I got her very late, as in one of the last vanilla for my collection. I am wondering if people use her for her tile dispel at +20. That has some appeal to me.

I do have another partially emblemed Wizard, that gets little use, that I could reset to get Sartana there. I love the tile dispel always being ready, no charging. There is never a shortage of things to dispel in war, etc these days it seems either.

Anyone else get value from her or is she just too far behind without costumes?



I am still using my Sartana on raid / war attacks without any costumes, but she is not maxed emblemed yet.

no, but then I have a lot of dispelling Purples already (2x c-Sabina, Seshat, Ametrine, Diaochan), plus C-Victor with his buff steal chance from family bonus. with that depth, I would not rely on a not-100%-reliable Purple dispel from Sartana

as for the snipe… she’s a good sniper, but again my Purple depth is really good. she does sometimes come out for lower levels of Purple CoE or lower levels of Tower events.

if your Purple roster is shallower, she still has her uses I think. and if you have the emblems for her, why not… but you’re better off relying on Sabina or c-Sabina for dispel.

I don’t specifically use her for tile dispel, but it is something in the back of my mind. I tend to use her most in magic tower because she can take so many curses.
But reality is with dark tanks being so common, I don’t use her. I really only use dark heroes for cleans, and even then I have a few very fast darks (Sergei (magic), C.Victor, Kage, Turgruk) that Sartana doesn’t come if. If we face yellow tanks, I guarantee I’ll use Sartana and I would use her against a tank with some sort of buff hoping the dispel procs.

Can anyone find me an image of a Sartana at 2LB and 20 Blems but without any costumes/costume bonuses?

Need it for a rant-post :rofl:

I’ll try looking for one when I cup drop

(without emblems)

sure is low nowadays :cry:

On the other hand, there’s Quintus and Obakan, but Sartana certainly outperforms them in defense. Although it seems they might be intentionally losing trophies with this mono defense strategy.
