I know you’re trying to be funny, but the OP and others are clearly excited to get Horghall. No need to trample on their happiness in such an adolescent fashion.
That said, he was my first 5* too. He has a lot of good qualities—he tanks really well, the attack debuff can really help in a battle, and Let’s face it, he’s a handsome son of a gun.
I will say that I have never maxed him even after nearly 2 years of playing. The biggest reason is that there was always someone more deserving of the tonics—while waiting for my 6th one, Lianna showed up (thank you TC20) and Lianna vs. Horghall is really no contest. That has happened 2 more times too, with Elkanen and then with Margaret. So he sits at 3-70, waiting to be called up to the big leagues, knowing he has untapped potential.
I’m not sure I will ever ascend him. His offense is just too weak and I have more than enough green tanks. Maybe someday, if I get 6 tonics sitting there unissued, and/or he gets a buff, it might be a different story.
But I will point out that Horghall simply doesn’t fit my playing style. Maybe he fits yours better. And even at 3-70, he’s still a reasonable tank and useful in war. Only you know how you play though.
Congrats on the 5* pull! Hope you get many more!
