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