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 one i wouldn’t mind getting. Hits harder than alot of AOE hitters. 826 dealing 290% to all, and an additional 70%, if it hits, is quite powerful.

This makes all dodge heroes useless.

@Blord Dodge heroes can still dodge. It’s not counted as a defensive buff in the game.

Does Sobek bypass an Ice reflect buff (i.e., Mitz, cKong)?

It should - Cobalt does and his skill is worded the same

Just pulled him on on a 15 pull with the coins I had and he was def one of the few i really want. These passives are getting crazy. Haha

My first 2 pulls and picked up 2 Sobek’s, what are the odds. :+1:

You should share one!! :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: Congrats on your pulls though.

I had pulled 2 pretty quickly as well, 2nd and 4th coin pull.

I’ve pulled him, I’m trying to decide between him and C.Lepus to take to the end.
What do people think?

At average speed and an attack of 826 (which could go far higher with emblems and LB), 290% damage is huge. However, better than half the time the passive makes it 360% with the additional sand damage. I’d ask if the sand damage scales with attack from emblems/LB, but it hardly matters; your team is pretty much wiped regardless.

These season 5 heroes are 5* heroes in name only and largely invalidate significant portions of rosters made up of previous event and season heroes. The decision seems to have been to force players to rebuild their heroes to remain competitive, and though this has to an extent been true for every season, this power leap seems the largest by far (thanks mostly to the inclusion of vastly more deadly and overpowered passives).

Great point, I was wondering if I LB Sobek or C Alasie, looking more like Sobek is the obvious choice.

FYI, I also picked up C Finley but he’s taken second fiddle to Sobek and his brother Sobek.

What is the logic in your view, by setting Sobek before C.Alaisie?

C.Alaise is fast, reduce mana directly and for a few turns forward and she is great both in offense and defense. The costume make her on of the best blue. Just my view.

Happy gaming

Alasie-C all day everyday before Sobek. If i had another Alasie i would level her up before everyone else. Here is my. One of the best blue atm.

Kinda similar to Cobalt, he trades the possibility of choice and strength for consistent AoE and buff bypass. He has also the class that can benefit from those buffs that get bypassed, just like Cobalt. Not top tier but good to have.

I made out like a bandit this summons! Between 15 coin pulls & a 10-pull I got all the 3 & 4*’s, plus 2 Papyros & Sobek!! Last time I had luck like that was the first Legends Summons!
