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:

Why are there two fast, hit three, green heroes in this portal? Then we have a fast, hit three, green HotM coming out in August. We had El Naddah in May, Silvaria in what? April…? Variety is key, but with nature heroes, there appears to be none.

Don’t forget average speed hit 3’s Guan Yu amd Liu Bei came out in the same time frame also!

Got and maxed Guan Yu recently who is charged with 2 more tiles, but does 390% to three and defense down as well (though heavily dependent on minions). Not really impressed with this one.

He is easily the most boring one of the group. The one thing that sets him apart from heroes like peridot is his blind is always AOE.

Drake Fong → Dr. Moreau → Väinämöinen

Evolution without damage increase :sweat_smile:

I can see this guy paired with C-Kadilen, fast blind+dodge

El Nada and future hit-3 HOTM is better.

I don’t think I’ll ever say his name without mistakes. :face_with_spiral_eyes: Maybe I’ll practice when I catch him :grinning:

What if after you waste 3 green matches and cast your special, then you don’t get another 3 green matches within 3 turns? Opponents are still alive and then you’re dead.

Blind and dodge can help you survive a few rounds, but you need to kill them as a priority. You can’t always assume you’ll get the tiles you need each turn.

I’ve got him today.

Since I love Dr M certainly this guy will have a spot in my green team. But Guan Yu, C Kadilen and Ratatorsky are on the line for leveling

This guy is much better than people give him credit for. A party wide accuracy decrease is great.

This hero needs a buff. Blind should be 44-50%

It’s just like regular Drake/Moreau…with less blind %. I guess he’s green? He’s pretty lackluster IMO.

He hits all instead of three with his minus accuracy, which at a mere 5% less isnt that noticeable and makes him better. In my playtesting, hes been solid. I expected less from him as well but after actually playing him, I just think hes getting a much worse rap than he deserves. In no way am I arguing against a buff though. He shouldnt be doing less damage than El Naddaha.

That’s a good callout, I missed that detail and thought it was only blind to 3 (not all) :thinking:

I want to like this guy but feel his 270% to 3 is underwhelming, given how the strongest hit-3 green is already now up to 390% to three. The accuracy debuff is nice, but you can’t rely on it. I feel he should be doing 300% to three. 270% to three feels outdated.

Yeah, my mistake…

I also thought that he does accuracy to 3 but to all he is alot better… immediately went to pull from this portal again /beacuse of your post) and got him in 15 pulls from so thanks :stuck_out_tongue:

Still think he needs some % up, either dmg or accuracy.

Kadilen has 45% and is basically same effect at same speed.
