Avoiding Overspending & Heartache
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.

This chick is definitely gonna get nerfed. They did it to Rhys and M&M, why not her?
Well, she Clean 3, reflects for 3 and heals over time for 3.
I’d say she won’t get nerfed because she won’t be used much. because she is simply not good
A worse Hawthorne of a different element.
Im sure she will eventually get buffed at least 2 times.
1st time she can regenerate 5% more HP, and the 2nd times shall be stats increment and additional 6 HP.
3rd? Perhaps 4 years later after 99.99% Suzuna has been SEd.
Not really interested with this chick
She has that anime look that doesn’t look like she belongs to this world. I think it’s the glasses
I would like to get her, she would be perfect to pair with my Elradir.
How would she be a pair with elradir?
May 1, 2023, 10:06am
She clense only nearby so if I put Elradir not next to her I can take advantage of his DoT reflect and my other heroes can be cleansed.
With this team only 1 hero can be hurt by DoT (if Suzuna and Elradir can fire ofc)
This would be even better with 2 Elradir in corners and Suzuna in the middle. I had the same idea with Aeron but Suzuna is better.
i agree but it seems nerfs are based on popularity and long term use.
believe me if everyone decides to put her on ther defenses, SG will automatically nerf her.
they only see usage over everything it seems
expect nerfs for franz/miki for titan popularity if they decide to look there.
the big balance update gives you an idea of their nerf priority:
it is extremely ignorant to blindly look at usage and nerf.
There will ALWAYS be popular heroes
i wonder if everyone decides to put this HoTM as tank she’ll get nerfed or not

Just got her, my second HOTM for about 15 months of playing this game, and so trashy one, jeez
Hawthorn on budget, not really fan of heal-3 and existence of Kitty makes her even less worthvile, but she might have some use if there are no better options. Also she lacks Hawthorn’s passive that drops damage from special to 1HP 10% of time, which makes him really annoying when it does trigger.
Why doesn’t her card say 2023? I know above info says her family is 2023, but I s not on the card. Is this a bug or is she not in a family? I just drew her from a couple free Atlantic coin draws…
May 1, 2023, 12:18pm
If I get her I would level her for sure as I don’t have better blue 5*
however, I haven’t been able to pull any 5* blue hero from portals for 3+ years now so let’s see…
I like the votes for “little stronger than most” though
May 1, 2023, 12:18pm
She isn’t even Hawthorn on budget. At very best, she is Aeron on budget

@PlayForFun a copy paste typo here I guess: instead of wizard emblems it should be cleric
Edit:. I just looked at the card I got and it says 2023 and it shows it’s a cleric class. I don’t know maybe they’ve updated it.
Also I don’t think they put a lot of thought into this one. She looks like she was from the Tower of magic which would mean that the copy and pasting from summons was incorrect for the presented card as they were trying to alter the information for the h o t m
Thx, I have fixed he OP and polls caption too to Cleric.
As I see it was a change since Beta.
