Best hero in the game

I have him costumed and 20 nodes
His sword is kinda weak but he is a very solid s1 hero
I like his costume
He deals a very good damage
But i wont LB him
I hope his 2nd costume will be an upgrade

I’m hoping that his second costume comes with an Ice EDD. It would be awesome

Nordri stinks… But he’s good enough that i don’t want to use feeders on 5* Arthur or frida…

I love Nordri but it’s tough keeping him alive against good defenses and titans

If anyone is wondering about his top-end potential, here you go:

This is all attack, LB, with costume bonus. Yes, I did this on purpose, and I use him all the time in my blue stack. No, he’s not a meta hero, but I still like him.


Doubt it, blue already have two EDD in “premium 5*” heroes - Frida and King Arthur.
Yes, Marjana and Leonidas got EDD, but I don’t remember any alternatives from 5*s in this color before their costumes release.


That’s why I would love Thorne with an Ice EDD just like Marjana and Leo have fire and holy

New costume Domitia will also have dark EDD. So I think it’s time to give the Ice for a secondary S1 hero and Thorne would be a great choice since his special skills have ice related names

But it’s more wishful thinking than reality


An interesting find while raiding


And this is without the costume bonus. You got me kinda thinking about it now… :thinking:

EDIT: If I did the math right, his stats with the costume bonus would be 929 / 1123 / 1989. 929 attack at 490% should be a decent wallop. And +30% if it’s in the first 6 turns, with his aether power.

Gotta see how common these aethers are gonna be. Also, dude should have a second costume coming…


He might finish someone with his icecold finisher! I’m not ready to drop 11 aethers on it yet though.


Agree. Not until we see how common they might be. But sadly, he is still one of my better hitters in blue. I do hope to get his second costume, and then we will see.

I recently got ccMagni and the pair land quite a punch. The speed is enough different though that sometimes they don’t line up. ccMagni is probably going to be my first five star 2LB, but I have already used six of my alpha aethers on 4 stars (I have gotten one more), so it won’t be soon.

I use Krampus (attack up), C. Kiril (defense down), and Thorne so the speeds work better, but I have to think C. Kiril + ccMagni + Thorne would have to be an insta-kill for almost any hero and a decent whack to those nearby.

If only I could land CKiril I would be happy to research this for you!

Best of luck getting him. Dude is a workhorse on my roster.
