Seems underwhelming after some of the prior hero releases.

should have been give clean or status block on first charge

another lame duck from this portal - seems they did this on purpose dropping a portal with one main prize with phorcys being super strong and all others being weak to medicore at best

i do not understand this mechanic whats the purpose on being fast and then being average with almost the same special

this one compared to hathor is a joke

What was the feedback on these heroes in beta - They do feel like some hero of the month leftovers?

This hero does like… nothing. No damage, no cleanse, no DefUp or something like this. She needs a buff!

All of them need buffs - except that purple one which needs to be toned down a bit lol

Dont know didnt any of the beta testers give feedback that most of them are severly underpowered?

I just skimmed the beta feedback (these heroes were in beta before I joined) and she was originally much stronger in the first beta; testers noted she was OP; so she was nerfed during beta.

Seems like the other UT heroes were actually found to be balanced or OP, except Ephyra, whom some noted to be weak.

Also, I think your perspective may be for players are at a tier that many are not necessarily at: for example, I think most players would find Galapagos very useful.


Blue healer never hurts…like the status ailment block & 3 turns is just right. Love the art on all these heros.
Congratulations to those who pull one of these new heros …


I was looking at those heroes when portal just opened and was thinking to myself, some look fun, like LaSalle but he is sniper, dark one is really good and the others seem like a bad joke. Green turtle guy is a minion remover in a meta without minions and is weaker than any minion remove hero we already have.

Other heroes I did not mention are just a bad joke, this blue hero being at best decent but at least not completely useless like some others

what i also do not understand whats the thing with this changing tides crap - they are fast then they become slower with almost the same skill ?!
if the second skill was mega op i could understand but in this time where raids tend to be short very often why make them slower so you never see second skill which is almost the same anyways lol

the only one thats ok with this feature is
again phorcys (he is really another league than the rest of them) because he gives himself mana to compensate this weakness but the rest?!?

make first skill average and second skill very fast that would be more balanced
or heck remove that changing tides bs make them fast & buff their specials slightly

even lame thor gets kind of better with second ability without loosing mana speed?!?

second thought about these heroes →

this portal is almost as bad as that slayers thing which they removed after the second time lol

This portal it’s remind me to S5 portal when he was first released, just 1 good hero and the other was crap.

hope they go the same route like they did with s5 and realise soon how weak they are (“checking metrics” aka checking money flow) and buff them to a desirable level

but as this is the pseudo season 6 and i guess they want to make some cash with that thing a buff should not be to far away

wonder if anyone did test those heros actually - or with sheer flow of releasing 20 new 5* to beta every week it aint even possible to test them anymore …


I can speak for myself, when they wass added for testing In beta I didn’t test them so much because they was with all heroes in the big ballance bullsh… and I was much more concerned on the ballance, so form my side I did not give any suggestions for them.

Thalassa was an OP hero on beta, now is a weak hero.
Empires doesn’t like middle point :rofl:

Don’t know what y’all talking about but I love boosted health healer and block aliments great hero to me glad I pull her


after 16 tiles - thats like slower than very slow ?

Not going to be that long for me to get her charged up have bards and level 27 magic troops and myoin-ni

yeah but thing is they should have given her that block on first charge - maybe 2 turns or sth so she would have been more on par woth hathor & other good healers

also kinda hard figuring out a 3 2 setup with myoin ni & bard & her for me

I agree with you hope they do buff her a little but I can find some use now
