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:

I like the explosive minion after 3 turns … hope its not a dud…

I like this most, and it isn’t his main special. Mana slow at Fast mana? Yes please. Yep, I understand it is a 70% chance but ALL enemies!
Bonus is that he does damage to one and delayed damage to up to three.

I’m assuming the fiend doesn’t explode when the enemy is defeated, since the wording is different from Jack’s

Another war equalizer gem?

Yes, as this is not an ailment it should be good for War Equaliser

He arrived with a little buff since Beta (190% damage instead of 175%).
The OP is adjusted.

It is still showing 175% damage.

He was the only 4* of the S5 heroes I pulled and also my very first fiend hero (well, I’ve had way too many Vollermorks). But only because of the passives I think he might be okay, won’t rush levelling him though. Unless I happen to see him in action, but fighter emblems are hard to come by, so not super excited.

For me, monk and druid emblems are hardest to come by. Ranger also.

I have two of him, but not done anything with him yet.
Is it worth the mats to level both?
I have lots of yellow 4* heroes

I have 3 and will max at least 1 and maybe even 2. The important skill is the passive which gives 50% chance of -24% mana generation to all. At fast speed, he fits well with Mist, Jackal, and Griffin.

And of course for Bloody Battle tournaments, that fiend can’t be removed so if you fire at 2 opponents next to each other, you’ll do 150, 450, 450, 150 damage to 4 in 3 turns when it explodes

Yeah, he looked really underwhelming to me when I first saw him. Something like a better Carroll but then I saw his passive and it kinda intrigued me to maybe level him one day. I have so many unfinished 4* I need to do before him. Mist, Woolerton, Wren, Merlin, Peters and quite a few 3* as well

Yet another one of these delayed bomb heroes that nobody ever liked or uses. If they’re going to keep making these crappy heroes why don’t they make one that actually excites us? The initial damage is not enough at all and the fact that it’s a fiend doesn’t really even help it at all when the heroes base damage is that low. It doesn’t even blow up if you kill the target like Jack’s and Carol’s bombs do, come on.

It’s a delayed bomb, but that bomb is a fiend. Much better than Carol or Jack, because it eats up any healing. Not the greatest, but it helps too kill your opponent.

I agree, he’s crappy but his passive is intriguing and the only good thing about him. 50% chance is pretty low, though

Experimental. If he works out they’ll bring out a legendary next, with proper fiendish fiends.

Does it still explode then? Or is the fiend just gone after healing? Because then they would be useless except in bloody tornaments. 30% healing happens quite fast in fast mana tournaments.
Gullinbursti his damage is done even if he is killed or if he is de-buffed. But as I read it, this is not the case here.

If the Fiend removed by healing or by Esme or other Fiend remover heroes, then it does not explode.

That’s unfortunate… and sucks! Then basically, this hero is only of use in bloody tournaments and in attack, if you can time his special.
