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:

Not interested in this one. Why not heal everyone?


This one for sure will be changed to average and heal all :smiley:

Looks like only a tank for Rush war and tournaments. That’s a lot of ascension mats for a hero that specialized.


…even in Rush, I am afraid there would be better options with a several of the S1 4* heroes (w/costumes of course). :face_with_spiral_eyes:

The boosted health and max health reduction are only for her. Survive alone to do what exactly?

I honestly do not understand the concept behind this hero today (unless there is a massive change from Beta which would seem reasonable).


Basically a stronger Celidana with the defense to all and cleanse.


The OP is adjusted with the changes.

Polls are now enabled.

@PlayForFun she boosts health for all now, not just caster :+1:


Frond enters the chat.
Starwalker enters the chat.

Thx, you are right.
I have updated the OP further.


Now, all special abilities cover all allies.


I see, I made a final adjustment on the OP

I hope it is now ok.

What an improvement from Beta!!

Suddenly Winnie makes sense although she continues to look like “Rush or Nothing” hero since she does nothing to harm the opponent.


Definitely glad she got changed on release, definitely a much better card now. Before wouldn’t have been worth getting, now I wouldn’t mind.
Going to be a pain in Rush I think.

Don’t like her. Too slow and too passive. Reminds me of Lidenbrock, down to the priority cleanse.


Ah, another prime example of why I am not spending any more on this dumb game - yet another hero they’ve made irrelevant - Augustus.

Real imaginative guys, perhaps start finding other ways to fill your fat, greedy pockets rather than gimping heroes a couple of months later.

I don´t see it. Btw a one year old seasonal hero should be worse than a brand new event hero. And besides the stats I don´t see much of a difference between the 2.
I keep my old Augustus, this one is definitely not interesting enough to waste mats on.

Except that Lidenbrock starts with mana and can be charged in 9 tiles at normal speed. So also Lidenbrock is much better than this one.

I will maybe buy a few coins, but I really hope I don´t get this one lol.

The difference is it’s not tile dependent, which is quite big.

This isn’t the best example of heroes that have been replaced so soon, Boom & Fang Goblin? Newer and better version out already.

Thought it worth sharing here as well. I get the point about comparing seasonal to new event hero, but the special itself lacks originality as pointed out.

Happy gaming! :cupcake:
