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:

Maybe I underestimate her, but for me, she is one of the weakest S5 heroes so far. Healing based on damage done is not particularly good. Maybe due to the high attack and fast speed it will be meaningful.

She seems to be a solid sniper, but nothing more. Her heal is just a cherry on the cake. I don’t think it will really be reliable. I would have preferred a true red healer to be honest. :laughing:

If Bastet is Hello Kitty, Sekhmet looks more like a Thundercat

I agree that she looks average, but I have had some problem with Junaid in tournaments but that is mainly because of his passive - which is better than Sekhmets.

Even tho I would like to exchange my Papyros to this one, but most of all I would like Bastet

Don’t underestimate her. Because she is fast, her specials fire a lot and they hurt…

It’s easy to see why you deem her as one of the weakest S5, she feels too similar to Junaid:

Well, his heal is nothing to sleep at. With huge attack stat, 40% from 450% snipe, enhanced by troops is 400ish.

His heal will be of course better on offense, where you can increase it by attack boosts and def downs, but he may even find a place in high-end def teams since there are usually no healers at all (except Xno and Diao tanks, and now Rhys flanks).

When I used her in beta I tested sekhmet sniping an enemy sekhmet. She did 80% of the healing that I could get from boldtusk.

Given that she comes with damage, faster speed, and other bonuses she can operate as a more versatile healer than BT. You do lose attack boost though.

I’ve been loving junaid as a support hero. Sekhmet can do the same.

Here’s mine, lvl 81, when she fires off after cMarianna the healing is around 600hp. She’d be much better if the healing would exceed max hp, yet still a solid card worth maxing.

Ohh, showing some leg to lower the enemy’s guard, before she deals the death blow.
But really, she and Horus have very strange poses as Egyptian gods

That would be disgusting if she can overheal. I love it

Would love to get her! Junaid is awesome and this is a jacked-up version of him :slight_smile: Obviously much better on offense than defense, but hell we don´t need a new Kufu come out every month, do we?

Interesting numbers… maybe additional boosted health like @KB-79 suggested would distinguish her from Junaid…

You guys need to know that her healing could be much less than you expect. Look at this Junaid’s healing. (Junaid - Heals all allies for 30% of the damage dealt.)

Junaid dealt 820 damage. The amount of healing that your allies get is like that. It is about 40, not 240. It’s because you can’t deal more damage than the target’s left health.

Sekhmet could not be a main healer for this reason. She is a sniper actually, and her healing is just a bonus, maybe?

I don’t mean she is bad. I’d like to get her. I’d just like to remind you her healing works like that way.

You can snipe at the target which has more health left for getting more healing.
Here Junaid, again.

This is because the 40% healing is dependent on the actual HP of the hero that is hit.

Yes. That’s what I’m trying to say. Thanks.

450% damage to 1 and you have Khufu that can do 450% damage to everyone. For the difference between a few tiles, the damage scale here seems so far off it’s ridiculous. They are so imbalanced it’s crazy.
