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:

Pretty underwhelming card for a legend. Unless you take 3 different ailment makers i think the usefulness of the ailment boost is not that great. And there is no direct damage too.

i agree… i pulled him…
only good thing, as per all magic ones, is the -5% mana gen stack

1 Like

He also has a chance to do 100% damage. Not really impressive but not completely dead on release.

I wanted to add that it is a plus that the +50% increase ailment is before the poison, but it really doesn’t matter since it is happening at the end of the turn…

all in all… just another ‘jade from ninja tower’… (i have her)

p.s. sg doesn’t get it that the more thrown ‘just to make money’ content in the game they are bringing, the more problems and frustration they create… but as long as #nospenders pay, it doesn’t matter…

He probably would stack nicely with lady locke!


That’s what I’m thinking as well. He’s actually better than Matilda when paired with locke. Because with Mathilda, you run the risk of resetting her DOT. And you want her full damage. They’re both green, so it’s easier to gen mana with them

I also find a lot of people underestimating how powerful he is, especially on offence. He is strictly a charge 1 hero, which means he is more focused on one skill.
Heroes like Erlang Shen’s ailment damage is considered a DOT and is subjected to this effect. Having telonius/erlang Shen/attack down hero as a setup, you can destroy a chunk of your enemies in no time
If charge 2 was elradir’s ailment reflect, he becomes really good


I agree with the speed factor, 6 tiles and you can keep attacking one side with poison while the rest can work on the other cards or killing them faster. But if we are able to use different ailments at the same time the chances of landing a larger damage is viable. Like bringing fire and water damage and you somehow time it together.

He really is not that bad like some people think he is. Since you are focusing on charge 1 for this hero, he can also easily cripple the enemies’ mana speed with his passive without fretting about which charge to use. I also wished he dealt sand damage instead. Because Anton already deals poison
The charge 2 has very niche usage. Being able to block the damage from Erlang shen.

I’m surprised people aren’t seeing the benefits of running him alongside season 5 heroes. Pairing with khonshu and Tetisheri for increased water damage. Great potential pairing with Skadi, Emilio and D’artagnan too.

Yeah I’m a bit surprised the polls are so negative (no votes for yes, with 82% voting not worth pulling). He would pair well with any DoT hero really, from my own roster Dark Lord, Tethys, Serendite and Peridot come to mind :thinking:

He synergizes even better with Morgan le fay. Her DOT will hit much harder and she’ll heal more from that


I just got him with a free pull
Is he good for a tank spot?

1 Like

Unless you have fast DOT flanks who can utilize his charge 1 potential, he is not a defense material.
He is slow as a healer but very good if he charges to 2 before he dies.
It is too early to decide his defense status. But if you do not have any other alternatives, then he can play the role.

Well for green, i dont have better alternatives
Hatter, Margret and S1 staff no costumes
And regarding DoT heroes, i have JF, Clarissa, Rana and Klaern

Another question, does he amplify dmg from moto moto (hippo)?

No, hippo’s damage is from a buff, not an ailment


Clarissa will overwrite Telonius poison. JF and Rana will work if you can time them together. But at different speeds it is not reliable on defense all the time.
Hippo’s buff wont be buffed coz of Telonius.

I pulled this guy and he seems cool to play around with, but I’ll never be able to since Tonics are scarce. Have Myoin-Ni and Liu Bei in line first. Wish we had ascension resets. Telly, Morgan, Lianna resets would let me max them.
Or I wish there was a playground mode where we could try out our heroes as if they WERE fully maxed against teammates. It’s hard to tell sometimes until maxing if they’ll work for you or not. Too much of a risk with this horse guy at this point to waste tonics.
