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:

This is feeling like they could be a nuisance of a holy tank to go up against, which at least makes a change from the dark meta I suppose. Depends on if it can fire off before the dark stacks defeat them though :thinking:

From 200% to 340% damage to all…… at average…. Wasn’t the WHOLE point of the Big Balance Patch to REGULATE special skill numbers? This is becoming ridiculous.

Anyway, great hero and you’d be lucky to oull him.

I mean, Queen G is 330% to all at average, granted at a much lower power, but the precedent is already there

I don’t disagree that others are also at that level, but, I just would personally prefer that not every hero needs to have such a high level of damage at that outset to be competitive :person_shrugging:

The stat jumps are already going at a significantly fast rate when looking at the HotM or even comparing stats of some new heroes to their predecessors in the same portals.

Anyway, I’m just ranting at this point, so apologies for going off-topic.

I do see that st least they lowered the % health return from that damage, but I wonder if anyone could do the math of the numbers to see what is more valuable:

  • higher damage, lower heal %; or
  • lower damage, higher heal % ?
    If there is even a difference :laughing:

Does this one harm holy allies?

Edit: never mind, i was reading this wrong.

Appears to be unbalanced.

Adding 140% damage is crazy overpowered. General consensus was that he was balanced as tested in beta.

Rainbow robo gang gang is complete ( counting brimstone as a robot , no follow up questions :grin:)

Offensive and defensive play

Also would love some context for Shaal on defense! Her and dark feather seems like a dangerous combo!

Could this guy change the meta or is holly still weakest for the moment?
Anyone testing him as tank?

Happy gaming

I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry looking at this card

Well I suppose it came in time. I was at 3-49 on Vaishali when I pulled Shaal. At least it was before I blew my Yellow Mats on her. Not that she isnt also worth it, in some ways moreso (the priority dispel on hit 2, the very fast heal and cleanse). But sight, Ive got no luck EVER in the ascension mats pulls (except telescopes).

I guess hes the next yellow. At least till next week when they re-prove that they are trying to keep the game balanced. Ahwell, I needed a better yellow tank.
