Nope; but the regular Skittles must be at least 4-1 in order to fully ascend & level the costume (cannot ascend beyond the same ascension of the base hero)
so much for my idea of only maxing out the costume
now I am really on the fence as far as what to do with her. my suspicion is that costumed skittles is cheaper and better than non-emblemed elk for green stacking in war, but no idea.
I pulled her costume last month (along with my first copy of her) and haven’t touched either yet.
I’m seriously considering maxing her though because so far all of my costumed heroes are awesome and it seems like she could be too? Albeit maybe to a lesser degree. I also have a ton of sorcerer emblems, so
Could you tell us how you like your costume skittleskull? Did you have her maxed already before you got the costume?
I did have her maxed and fully emblemed long before I even knew there would be a costume for her. I originally maxed her because I needed green heroes and I had a lot of Sorcerer emblems to spare. Never regretted it and the costume boost made her even better.
I have a maxed skittle and costume! As you might expect, she only gets used during 4* rush attack tourneys and maybe if we face blue war tanks. That’s frankly enough for me to warrant leveling at this point.
what kind of damage does she do (in costume) against 5* blue tanks (and their war defense teams). Are we talking in the 100-200 range, 200-300 range?
That’s my biggest question really.
I use her pretty much everywhere. She’s in my green team so I use her in every war, in my daily raids, 4* tournaments and against titans.
@CoreyOfTheIsland here is an analysis done for her against the average 4* hero defence:
I can probably expand it to use the average 5* defence stat if you’re interested?
Edit: realise that the image isn’t “clickable” in the quote function… She does ~350 damage to a 4* hero with the costume on OR ~340 damage to a 4* hero with just the costume bonus
Here is Skittles vs. average 4* Defence Stat:
And here is skittles vs. average 5* Defence Stat:
Skittles was my first green 4, so I’ve used her out of necessity a lot. I was happy when I got her costume, and maxed it, but as others point out - green war stacks, fast mana speed tourneys, and class quests are her main niches. I used her for a long time on my titan stack, the -34%(39% in costume!) attack debuff was helpful in keeping my team up.
this is great thanks!
makes her look worse though lol.
As a cleric, if mana shield protects her and she triggers early enough, 300ish damage against all 5 heroes with an attack debuff could be worth it though.
Going to stop overthinking it and if I never use her after maxing her, she’ll just be a partner on the bench for kashrek.
Here’s mine now since I posted the question.
I use her for titans, class quests, and aw but not in raids as I’m in diamond. But for those uses, I cannot complain. The last node in talent is +4% mana for sorcerer while it is +4% health for cleric. So I use her mostly in her original class.
@jhrew, would you mind posting your emblem paths for both versions for reference? I drew Skittles’ costume today, and with Sabina already at +20 and Ameonna at +19, my next candidates for sorcerer emblems are Skittles or some three-stars. Might have gone the three-star route without the costume, but I do still use Skittles on the Trials of Mysticism and my cleric teams could also use a little “oomph”, so I’m seriously thinking about embleming Skittles up and maxing her costume (after Gandalf the White, who I also pulled today). I’m thinking I want to max out attack, but I’m not sure in which class.
She is looking pretty solid with costume bonus + emblems.
With a level 17 mana troop + above boosts (assuming mana route was taken with emblems), she can become average speed (if not close).
So you chose to optimize the cleric path, not the sorcerer path?
I wanted a balance as I don’t have a strong attack in cleric.
Me, either. That’s why I was asking. Trying to decide which path I want to optimize, and I’m still not sure. It seems like the difference in the SS damage and attack debuff aren’t enough to swing the balance either way.
she better be a rockstar for this rush attack tournament. 39 % attack debuff at very fast should be huge on offense and on defense. plus, you know, candy.
I didn’t max out normal skittles though so I can’t emblem her but probably not worth it anyway
update: costume skittles has turned out to be an awesome titan hero for budget players.
She has the second highest attack stat ( 778 with no emblems) on my roster, behind Lianna. And her attack debuff is proving very useful as a counter on blue titans that often have def debuff skills.
For all budget players, this hero is absolutely worth it if you arent loaded already with 5* greens with very high base attack.
My new budget blue titan green hero lineup: Lianna. Gad. Costume skittles. Hansel. + either wu, costumed rigard or isarnia (depending on the titan)
