Thorne or Evelyn - yes I'm serious

I have Horghall, caedmon Melendor and skittleskull levelled up for green.

I’ve got Kirill and Boril for blue.

I’ve got 5 scopes and 1 tonic.

So… I think I should level up the much maligned Thorne and leave the excellent Evelyn for later.

Anyone disagree?

Here’s my full lineup:

Sartana - 4th tier
Horghall - 4th
Justice - 4th
Domitia - 3rd
Leonidas - 1st

Kirill - 4th tier
Boril - 4th
Scarlett - 4th
Colen - 4th
Boldtusk - 4th
Caedmon - 4th
Melendor - 4th
Rigard - 4th and 2nd
Tibertus - 4th
Wu - 4th
Chao - 4th
Li - 4th
Cyprian - 1st

Proteus - 4th
Ameona - 1st

Evelyn - 1st tier

Thorne isn’t worth levelling past level 3, 70. Evelyn is a great hero so max her and fast.

The arguments against Thorne basically boil down to: “he’s a bit underpowered for the roles one would like to use him in.” But underpowered is way better than no-powered, which is where you are now. He can certainly still badly hurt targets in platinum tier, so if that’s where you’re living, he’s really not an awful choice.

The real remorse will happen if you pull a Grimm while you’re in the middle of levelling him. For what it’s worth, though, you’ve got my blessing.

Rock that Thorne. You do you bard man. Haters gotta hate.

You’ve inspired me to ascend Quintus.

I’ve got 13 capes, so Grimm is welcome :laughing:

I would have to agree with @Garanwyn it is true that Thorne is underpowered but you have no other blue and lots of green. Evelyn will definitely happen but Thorne is better than nothing at all. Unless you plan on investing and rolling the dice on summons to get another he is the best option right now and I would do it

I actually think Thorne is decent. He’s got big boy stats and he hits. The attack stat is low but that’s what buffers are for. Considering you only have two blues leveled, I’d go with it for now. If you pull triton or Grimm I’d switch priority though because they’re probably more useful for the price it costs to level them.

“Uhh Ralph, how about you give the kitty a warm cape??”

Ah, then! Go nuts.

I’m less worried about you pulling a sweet blue 5* from TC20, because the probability of a non-Thorne blue 5* coming up is 0.93%. So at 2 days a pull, the average time to get one is going to 148 days. And the 95% likely point is about 640 days. Holding your mats for an average of half a year (and maybe much longer) seems like a mistake.

I use Thorne for quiet some time in combination with Grimm and Kiril.
For raiding and events that is. They are the ultimate rock band. Kiril provides the beer; Grimm rocks them down and Thorne does the finishing touch.

The X-factor of the games RNG knowing when you’ve just spent your mats and then drowning you in that color is real.

You know, there are many worse problems in life than pulling Magni and Isarnia once you’ve got Thorne half leveled :laughing:

Fortunately, as a Mod, the game makes special allowances for me and my mats fall in just the right proportion.

We’ll require follow up with evidence of ascended or not ascended Thorne now.

I’ve got Thorne at 3/70; he was my first ice 5*, and so I made lemonade with that lemon.

You know, @JonahTheBard, that I’m a big fan of matched-color training, so I’m not sure that I see a conflict between raising Evelyn and Thorne at the same time (unless you’re really low on gloves/compasses).

Actually every other blue 5* you can get would be better than Thorne: level Evelyn.
If only I could gift one of my Grimm to you… you wouldn’t have such weird toughts :stuck_out_tongue:

I posted this in another thread. You can replace the name “Elkanen” for “Thorne” :point_down:

You need to read carefully, my friend. And see who is writing. All the given advices are well intended and I ALWAYS feel thankful for a well intended advice, but sometimes all those do is to confuse you.
Elkanen sucks… Compared to what? Alberich, Zeline, Tarlak, Gregorion… OMG! All HOTM!!! People saying this can have a 5 HOTM defense team with 2 or 3 Gravemaker, Ares and Hel waiting in the bench…
If you are a BIG spender and think you may be able to get one of those heroes in further Atlantis summons, then feed Elkanen away (maybe you want first actually obtain any new green 5* LOL)
Let me tell you about a modest C2P (never top 100 or even 1000). My TC20 has only rewarded me with two 5*: Obakan and Thorne, B and C rated heroes… All I read about Thorne is crap and more crap. Obviously you can’t compare him with the new Aegir, but the fact is I don’t have Aegir and my fully leveled Thorne is pretty good, tanky stats and just decent damage. Same as Obakan.
My point is: do you like Elkanen? Then ascend and use Elkanen. Listen what all this very kind and wise people have to say but don’t regret taking another direction. Don’t waste months of not using a good hero waiting something awesome finally arrives.
