Ninja Heroes have a family bonus for unique heroes of the same family.

  • 5% / 10% chance to dodge normal attacks and Special Skills
  • 5% / 10% chance to counterattack with 60% / 90% of the damage recieved

:thought_balloon: What do you think of Topaz ?

This thread is for thoughts and discussion on Topaz.

Based on preferences Forum members have expressed, please try to stick mainly to Topaz and not wander off topic too much to other heroes.

Some Popular Questions for Discussion

  • Is Topaz worth summoning for?

  • Would you use Topaz on Defense? Offense? War? Quests/Events? Titans?

  • Which heroes on your Roster best pair with Topaz ?

  • What heroes would you take when facing Topaz as an opponent?

  • Would you give Topaz Sorcerer Emblems? Which Talent Grid path will you choose?

  • What do you think of special?

  • What do you think of Topaz’s character design?

  • If you Summoned Topaz and would like to post your results, please include some thoughts on why you Summoned Topaz, and whether/how you plan to make use of them.*

*NOTE: Summon Results posted without any commentary/feedback at all should be flagged as Off Topic and removed, based on preferences expressed by the Forum community. Please include some comments about what you think of Topaz when posting Summon Results. In addition to opinions about Topaz, you are also encouraged to include how many Summons it took before receiving Topaz (or how many Summons you’ve done without receiving Topaz), so other players are presented with realistic experiences of the rarity of Legendary Event Hero.

:money_with_wings: Avoiding Overspending & Heartache :broken_heart:
Or: How many summons are needed to get a Legendary Challenge Event Hero?

It’s important to remember that Challenge Event Heroes have EXTREMELY low summoning odds. No amount of summoning will guarantee a Challenge Event Hero.

On average, in a 10-pull, you have a 1.65% chance of summoning Topaz.

But that statistic can lead our minds astray in exactly how our odds play out as we continue summoning.

Some useful insights:

  • 15 times out of 100, you’ll get Topaz by pull 100 (26,000 gems)
  • 56 times out of 100, you’ll get Topaz by pull 500 (130,000 gems)
  • 95 times out of 100, you’ll get Topaz by pull 1,796 (467,200 gems)
  • 99 times out of 100, you’ll get Topaz by pull 2,761 (717,900 gems)

Putting that in Perspective

  • 85 out of every 100 people won’t get Topaz by the 100th pull

  • If 1 Million players each spent $259.97 (US) to summon :one::zero::zero: times, 846,364 of those players wouldn’t get Topaz

  • 5 out of every 100 people won’t get Topaz by the 1800th pull

  • If 1 Million players each spent $4,671.53 US to summon :one::eight::zero::zero: times, 49,663 of those players wouldn’t get Topaz

More Insights & Reading

I highly recommend reading these three threads for more information and context on summoning odds:

If you’ve read them a million times before, you may consider reading them again before deciding on your budget for summoning. A little time spent deciding on how much money you want to risk on summoning goes a long way to avoiding disappointment, frustration, and regret later. :slight_smile:


:thinking: Wondering About Your Personal Situation?

hero that will mostly chase all for finishing s4 :joy:
is it always small amount of mana for all inany charge is same mana received?

Yes, she is the fastest hero, which can be help to finish the last stage of Underwild.

This was the wording in Beta too.

I forgot about these being released. Good. I want to go all out with pulls for dem ninjas so lower chance of getting dupes or Jade is nice.

You mean he is fastest because of receiving mana, otherwise his charge mechanic works the same regarding mana/ tiles received, right?

Fastest, as 5 tiles are enough to charge this hero, and you can remove the minion from the boss.

Ah, ok, you meant that he is the fastest minion remover, not that he is the fastest Ninja. Thanks!

@OldCynic will you do a review of her? I always enjoy your views on new heroes. :slight_smile:

Such lazy art on this hero. They could have at least tried to make her look different from Garnet…

First they introduce us to the S4 finale which is more or less unbeatable without a minion remover. Once we get the feel for how difficult this stage is, they introduce the solution behind a huge paywall.

Costume Gormek worked fine for me. I wouldn’t consider him a major paywall.

What is opinion and review so far?
It has the highest attack of all Ninja and good def and health.

There are several anti minion heroes out there. How good is Topaz compare to those?

One of main advantage of Ninja is to control when to shoot.

I have done some testing at 4.70 and happy so far.

Happy gaming

Thanks for posting your review, her card seems awesome. Higher damage than cobalt, destroys minions, adds mana. Haven’t used her yet but super exciting I got her.

Woke up at three this morning and realized the Ninja Tower event was up. Said a little prayer and did a couple 10 summons. Was blessed, got Magni, Kadilen, Topaz and the HOTM. Maybe I should try praying and summoning in the early morning more often! Bible does say, “In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.” in Psalm 5:3 haha

She will be my 3rd 5* ninja and I’m excited to try them together to see how well the dodge from family bonus works. Seems to work amazing when I have to fight 3 ninjas on defenses for raids.

I really like that she has the highest damage hit, especially since her other special is situational. Against minion teams she will be a beast, and even when it isn’t against a minion team she seems like she will still hit hard enough to make it worth having on your team.
