For many players Bane is their first 3 star hero (from the summoning tutorial). Veteran players could tell you he’s one of the best 3-star heroes. Alas, many of us feed him to level up another hero before they learn of this.
If you fed your first Bane, you’re invited to join the Honorary Society of First Banefeeders. All it takes to become a member is to share your story below.
I’ll go first
I fed my first Bane to my first 4-star hero, which happened to be yellow: Wu Kong. At the time that didn’t look like a bad idea, Wu’s level increased nicely and the % chance at increasing the special wasn’t shabby as well.
And a week later my first event happened and all I could field on beginner level for yellow was a 2-star. I couldn’t finish the final level and it wasn’t for lack of trying. If only my first 4-star had been any color but yellow, I might still have that first Bane.
It left a trauma. For AW I already have 3 Wu’s, 3 5-star yellow heroes. For the event a full Gan Ju. And yet I also have a Bane, untrained, but marked as favourite. I’m too scared to feed him to anyone for any reason. He might forever stay untrained, but I’m surely not feeding him anytime soon!
This thread contains horrible stories of players sacrificing valuable Banes, among other heroes. Parental Supervision may be warranted. Players sensitive to hero loss may wish to read no further.
