:thought_balloon: What do you think of Senan ?

This thread is for thoughts and discussion on Senan.

Based on preferences Forum members have expressed, please try to stick mainly to Senan and not wander off topic too much to other heroes.

Some Popular Questions for Discussion

  • Is Senan worth summoning for?

  • Would you use Senan on Defense? Offense? War? Quests/Events? Titans?

  • Which heroes on your Roster best pair with Senan ?

  • What heroes would you take when facing Senan as an opponent?

  • Would you give Senan Sorcerer Emblems? Which Talent Grid path will you choose?

  • What do you think of special?

  • What do you think of Senan’s character design?

  • If you Summoned Senan and would like to post your results, please include some thoughts on why you Summoned Senan, and whether/how you plan to make use of them.*

*NOTE: Summon Results posted without any commentary/feedback at all should be flagged as Off Topic and removed, based on preferences expressed by the Forum community. Please include some comments about what you think of Senan when posting Summon Results. In addition to opinions about Senan, you are also encouraged to include how many Summons it took before receiving Senan (or how many Summons you’ve done without receiving Senan), so other players are presented with realistic experiences of the rarity of Legendary Event heroes.

:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:
Or: How many summons are needed to get a Legendary Challenge Event Hero?

It’s important to remember that Challenge Event Heroes have EXTREMELY low summoning odds. No amount of summoning will guarantee a Challenge Event Hero.

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 1.65% chance of summoning Senan.

But that statistic can lead our minds astray in exactly how our odds play out as we continue summoning.

Some useful insights:

  • 15 times out of 100, you’ll get Senan by pull 100 (26,000 gems)
  • 56 times out of 100, you’ll get Senan by pull 500 (130,000 gems)
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Senan by pull 1,796 (467,200 gems)
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Senan by pull 2,761 (717,900 gems)

Putting that in Perspective

  • 85 out of every 100 people won’t get Senan by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each spent $259.97 (US) to summon :one::zero::zero: times, 846,364 of those players wouldn’t get Senan

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Senan by the 1800th pull

  • If 1 Million players each spent $4,671.53 US to summon :one::eight::zero::zero: times, 49,663 of those players wouldn’t get Senan

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:


:thinking: Wondering About Your Personal Situation?

Feel free to discuss your team and roster here, and ask for advice from other Forum members.

If you’d like more extensive advice on sorting out your particular roster, I recommend creating a new thread in #gameplay-help-tactics, and posting screenshots of your hero roster, along with your questions.

I am veryyyyyyyy tempted to ascend this guy over Alfrike to be honest. :eyes: Yesss, yes, i know, madness, but I have already consigned myself to making my next dark ascension hero one with a slow speed, so it’s all the one to me!

I got Senan as well. Not sure on this guy yet.

Extra line on special skill: spreads conjunctivitis to all enemies, and allies, and troops, and the account holder.

He looks like Kvasir with a bad hangover :slight_smile:

I managed to pull him and the two blue one’s. Was really surprised I got three from one event given the small amount of pulls I did.

It happens…

I am doing only single pulls with coins saved & got from completing R/E/L + mining the event. So far 8 Pulls got me Caitling yesterday + Rian & both 3s today… insane, as at times 50 to 100 pulls haven’t got me any 5 !

Though still missing th event 4*

Pulled him and put him on a line with Elizabeth and sif in the middle of the sandwich for a mana boost. Fiends have been sucking the life out of you no healer having defenses out there!

When I look at those new chars i’m thinking about chronicles of riddick kinda thing

Is it the Stack +2 (Max 10), this means each stack get 2 up stack? from skill.
And Stack normal (+1) from family bonus chance.
Not sure how it works, I do not have try him yet, still slow leveling.

For me he is like Jin Pachi, a father of Heihachi, grand father of Kazuya, grand grand father of Jin Kazama, from Tekken Game. :laughing:

It’s not 10% per stack. They gain two stacks from their special and hence 10% total.

Here’s Saoirse before and after casting her special.

Mana generation bonus 5*5%=25% before, and after 7*5%=35%. All Slayer heroes cap at +50% (from stacks).

Ok my bad. She gets +2 to mana instead hp. :wink:
Thanks for clearing that up.

That’s completely wrong. All legendary heroes in the Slayers family regen 100 hp per turn in max stack. (10hp / turn per stack)
The explanation written on the card is not very good.

True. A bit confusing

This doesnt help much to understand the mechanism…

The time when I wrote this I could not test it.
In the last Beta when we more than 1 stacks gives to a hero, then they gave 2 * 20 when you fired the skill, but now it is changed before the heroes made it to the live game.

So this 20 is now the total HP regeneration what you receive after you received 2 stacks.

Maybe add max stack stats in OP for clarification?

I have added it to the family bonus and I have also added a note for the special skill.
