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:

Interesting special, like mirror Echoes of Pain. Will make those killer AoE special more prohibitive. Also have Ferrus and Corrosive Core is pretty good.

Do we know why they nerf Tenebrae by taking away silence?

I mean sharing the damage as described is quite limited and his sniper is very low.
If I understand him correctly; in best case you damage with 395% (no one dies) and if enemies fire you will normal or direct damage you will send the same amount to your soulmate and if are taking a lot of damage maybe your soulmate die? Correct? :rofl:

I think they destroyed him by taking away silence. Or if he was Very fast at least.

Happy gaming


Soul bound just feels like a different form of Counterattacks, like, I really don’t see the the need for a new type of skill for something we already have. Maybe I’m just not understanding it correctly.

I LOVE the artwork, she reminds me of Dancer of the Boreal Valley from DS3.

She looks highly inspired by the Dancer.


they nerf her on the release date. That’s interesting :rofl: :rofl:

Yeah it’s a confusing special but it does seem like a counterattack that only targets that one hero with the soulbound? I’m not really getting it as it doesnt seem strong at all, unless I too am missing something.

You hit a target. That target gets 395% damage and is soulbound. Now every time tenebrae is hit for 3 turns, that soulbound target receives the same amount of damage as tenebrae?

It really doesnt seem particularly scary. Only affects one enemy and initial damage is pretty weak for a sniper type. I’m a but perplexed but will reserve jusgment until others start playing with them.


I believe this is the first hero with over 1000 in base attack


A note on stats…
Tenebraes hit with 395% has higher damage output than Liannas 512%

I don’t quite know how this will work, and does not seem very good for defense. Probably fun for offense, but intuitively I feel Quintins special is much more deadly.
She should probably have been either very fast or have had a “damage reduction” as long as soul bond was active or something like that.


It does work against DOTs. But at the same time, it’s not the soul bound that’s perplexing, it’s the lack of support this hero gets for this unique ailment.
For a passive ailment like this, 3 turns is way too short to do anything, unless she’s firing it right before the enemies
I don’t understand why she got silence to begin with, she should be getting 50% damage reduction for 3 turns
The uncleansable ailment imo also backfired for her. Imagine if her ailment is cleansable, she can synergize with carmenta. Even if it got cleansed away, doesn’t really matter as she’d set up her corrosive poison and extra defences by then. She needs a lot of support in this iteration
Ironically, I feel that only the corrosive poison passive at fast is her best skill.


The OP is adjusted with the changes. Polls are now enabled.

yeah I pulled her with one of my 600 coins. Wasnt even trying for her.

But honestly I’m disappointed. Those purple gargoyles seem way better. I keep wondering if I am missing something in the language of this hero’s special? Is there some secret strength that I’m just not seeing ?

Had 405 coins saved up, Tiburtus, Colen, Isshtak and Tenebrae.
Stats on the card show different at 4/90 1309, 1260, 2157.
Happy either way, was saving some aethers for my next 2LB, know what it will be now.

I originally thought that her special was interesting…love me something new …but I’m surprised she’s not getting much love here. Absolutely love the artwork on all these construct heros…who’s ever worked on these…kudos!


She will be awesome with Carmenta. Unfortunately both missing in my portfolio.

this will never be the case as in 3 turns is almost impossible to fire again this hero :)))

shame as silence give her something she was good,
now she is just ok-ish sniper

she will be way better if she is very fast and that deal 250% to one for example and then maybe last part of specials will come to effect sometimes

beautiful card hero and shame that she is not as good as in beta :frowning:

No, soul bound is uncleansable, carmenta can only spread cleansable ailments

Terrible hero. You’re better off just using any older 600% sniper … at least you don’t have to wait 3 turns later for your target to maybe die.


Good luck everyone who pulls for her! I tried (200+) and naturally failed…did get 2 HotM and some other duplicates…some not so bad but there are two many different options for me to level up a duplicate they must be exceptional or game changer and the only one I desired was tenebrae or lastest green Wo3K guy.
