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 is one hero i wouldn’t mind getting.


Atlantis family bonus might need updating +5% defense for 1 hero, etc

I think she is a really strong hero, but not a “must have”. The problem with trying to pull for her is that she will be featured with 2 post-telly hotm which in general aren’t that great. The only other current 5s hero I would attempt to pull for is cAriel and she was already featured last month. Its not worth it to try for her when 75% of the heroes featured with her would be a disappointment. I would rather pull in newer portals which have a higher % of good heroes to pull for. Also ranger is one of my strongest classes so emblems are hard to come by. I could see pulling here if you want costume wilbur which is easier to get, but I would rather wait for Oceanus to do pulls who is more of a game changer.


Thx, for noticing it.
I have fixed the OP to include the latest changes to the family.


Not someone I’d pull for (especially now since I have grand total of one telescope and Zircon + C-Snow waiting in queue) but wouldn’t mind getting her either way. With that strength up, she’s titan attack material.


Let’s be proactive, please start a “balance Tethys” right now in order to nerf because she is better than Vela🤪

Happy gaming


Very good for a blue stack

For sure, expect a balance act after they have pocketed our :money_with_wings:


Tethys Test-Drive video … crazy strong!


So happy that I got her :partying_face: thanks for the video


I totally agree im not spending gems whens 3/4 heros will be a dissapointment.

Found this on the top 100. Some players certainly don’t waste any time leveling these new heroes.


The one and only pull made, with some old tokens, plus those got in the map.
I think my luck for the year is spent


Congrats on everyone who pulled her. She seems to be a terrific hero


Got her in 2 pulls.

Her design is absolutely terrific. The whale behind her and that giant scythe. And seems to do damage that makes Vela jealous (though only on 3 targets, but that is enough to turn the tides - HA - of battle).


I feel like SG commissioned multiple artist to draw Vela with a description of what they wanted - sea goddess/sorceress, curved weapon below her, swirly bits, white hair, etc. - and they chose original Vela and then are using leftover art for Tethys. I don’t mean to say it doesn’t look good - it’s incredible - but there are sooo many similarities in design between the two, it makes it really funny that she ends up with a similar special to Vela, just generally better


A few things:

1.) Tethys seems like a fairly strong hero that would be awesome to get! She doesn’t seem so strong that she’ll require a nerf.

2.) Her theme seems very similar to Vela, which is a little odd. That being said, it’s a cool theme so I don’t necessarily mind the overlap!

3.) A new season 2 hero now that we’re in season 5…? I don’t really understand the reasoning. Will new heros be grouped into seasons based upon their theme rather than their release date?

i tried 21 pulls, didn’t get her. Maybe next time
