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:

Dark Khufu with good debuff, looks solid.


El Nad & Khufu rolled into one handy dark hero!

Certainly not one to be mad about getting that’s for sure. Lets see what and if there are any adjustments on launch though :smiley:


in offense he will be 9 boards when paired with Xno.
with styx troops lv 27 or magic lv 29. assisted with skill Xno. we only need to find 1 EDD or ED hero.
he will destroy all enemies.


This one hero combined with cG. Panther can singlehandedly take down an enemy team. He needs to deal 400% to target and have the chain deal 285% to anyone else. Khufu doesn’t have someone like cG. Panther to pair with, so he isn’t nearly as destructive in that aspect. Heroes like this just show you how out of touch SG is with this game.


I would say SG is perfectly in touch. Release the card, take your money then do the BIG BALANCE nonsense.
Like you mentioned, this card should chain at reduced damage % and should be a different colour. maybe Blue.
They need to stop making dark cards for the next 6 months.
This card will be a yet another tank for V fast and a great support/ finisher card on offense.


Xnol, C Panther and Sneferu. Game over.


Doesn’t Khufu now have Ray to pair with, who does -34% against fire at VF speed? If I’m not mistaken, Ray is the fire equivalent to cG. Panther for EDD? :thinking:


I was thinking the same thing. Hope to get him and max him up for the yellow titans.

cG. Panther does massive damage herself, putting most enemies at death range for this new guy. Ray does no damage and his effects will likely be over by the time Khufu is ready to fire because red doesn’t have a Xnolphod to boost their speed with direct mana and tiles. Also, by the time this guy is ready to fire, cG. Panther may also be ready to fire again.


Ah yes fair point, thanks for clarifying!

I’d say that purple is the most unbalanced element in the game, and I blame Guinevere for that. They let her reign supreme for too long and kept finding ways to overthrow her. Now they’re churning out purple heroes like crazy and making them either insane resources (Agrafena/Xnolphod/Hulda/Ludwig/Annabelle), overpowered (Alpha Aramis/cG. Panther/Amethyst) or (nearly) useless (Set/Salmon). There’s really no in between with purple anymore. When is the last time they released a purple that was simply ok, but neither great, nor bad?

Is Sneferu the last of S5 or Will we have any more new hero?

Happy gaming

I think Anubis is that in-between card for me. He doesn’t threaten, but when he timed right he chokes every thing.

There are no more S5 hero tested in Beta, but it can change any time.


Looks like it’s time to use my saved up dunes coins. Haven’t gotten Khufu yet, so I’d take the purple version lol

It’s funny they are nerfing a lot of heroes due to balance etc, and then release a hero like this lol


And funnily enough C-Guin can be good counter to all these heroes now, at least on offense (except maybe c-Panther, who can block the buffs, but Milena can solve that). So we’ve come full circle!

A single hero that has that ability is overpowered.
