I completely agree with this request and your analysis backing it. I do have a maxed Thoth because he was the only 5* Dark I had for a very long time. I got tired of waiting for someone better. I have several such now, and I’d like those tabards back…
Both excellent suggestions. Thoth hits too weakly, and that singleton minion is simply not recompense.
Thoth Amun is a Mummy. He must need buffer to get out from the underworld.
Even in the Anceint Egyptian methods King Tout was young fool dude who died cause he was stupid.
Now lets reflect this to the game.
Who would give a stupid ghost a massive power?
I have been holding onto my Thoth for about a year now trying to find a reason to max him. I just can’t seem to find one. Lately, my six tabbards have been itching for a home in my defense team. I have Thoth, Quintus, and Domitia waiting for upgrades. I don’t have Sartana (and am not really sure I want a fifth sniper) and I am finished blowing money on pathetic chances for something better. It’s TC-20 from now on for me. Thoth is fast, but Quintus is stronger. I wonder if Thoth would make a good tank (with two or three minions protecting him). But, is that good enough?
I have Thoth-Amun maxed and he is great imo, but I see all of your points, for a HotM he is lackluster. I think if he poisoned the three targets he struck or giving him a bite like Morgan’s, that would be enough of a buff instead of changing the amount of damage he does or giving everyone one of his minions.
I read a description of Thoth-Amun’s skills “summons an undead helper for each ally with 20% hit points and 15% for an attack taken from a hero”
Either the translation is inappropriate or the description resembles that of heroes like Mother of the North, Santa Claus, and Delilah.
If the description is correct, it seems to me that Thoth-Amun should summon a helper for each ally.
Please, explain this to me.
How disappointing and frustrating can be when you spend 2800 gems for thirty, I mean 30 (!!!) heroes on the Atlantis call and the only 5s you get is TA (besides the many double/triple 3s heroes I got).
And then you read this post and know already nothing will ever be done to improve him. Out of all the 5s I could get… why TA?!?
Does this make someone feel like spending more for a chance to get a better hero?. No, it does not. It puts you off and makes you don’t want to spend more for this money-sinkhole game.
I think improving him would be highly desiderable and I agree with the OP ideas.
Thoth-Amun was the first minion-caster introduced in the game, so it was a bit of an experiment. Apparently SGG decided that the all-ally minions were the way to go when they introduced Delilah, the second minion-caster. FWIW, Thoth’s minions:
Are the beefiest in the game
Are the only minions from a Fast mana hero
Have the potential to trigger the Sorcerer Delay skill each and every turn
#3 is actually a really nice buff that I haven’t seen discussed much. He could be an awesome mana control specialist.
To @D3J4VU73’s point, the developers have promised a set of hero “rebalancing” in Version 20 (Version 19 was just released). Maybe T-A will be given a little love.
