RaZoR's Blah 5/20
Did you know ATHENA...
Obtains her Sought After Extra Tile w/node 8 Mana*.
As I'm writing this, YOU or SOMOENE ELSE may not even be aware; only 2 of the 10 classes can achieve the tile gain through emblems when all else is not a current option through obtaining node 8. *You need to add a 4* Mana Troop Level 5 to seal the deal (and most anyone can do that). This early mana boost is limited to her class: the RANGERS... & the ROGUES. I had no idea this was the case until the recent past. The others DO NOT get their MANA increase until node 19 (2%) or 20 (4%) respectively.
As I went through my Rangers and Rogues (Not realizing Inari could have been made fast I stripped her at 17 as well Marjana - granted already fast in her case) - neither did I select the Mana node on though! You must choose to use emblems specifically with the Mana Node... I've already made the mistake with them and not knowing, I also found that 2 of my Rigard's and Khiona were classed past the 8th node and I didn't select the mana node in those cases either! I went the wrong way in all 3 cases plus 2. I am 1 for 6 in selecting mana in this case, I have 1 Rigard correct and classed at 14. For some reason with Rigard I thought this early access to FAST was limited to him and just occurred at node 8. Khiona is classed to high (18) to reset for the correction, the 2 Rigard's however I may need to both are currently at eleven.
What about that ATOMOS?
The monstrosity received a...
HUGE gift! An Unprecedented MANA SPEED INCREASE as a result of the Game Makers recent “Balancing”. Moving from SLOW to AVG. That I think is one the Most significant mods a hero could be given.
Should you happen to have Atomos maxed or soon to be please remember that I'm interested to know what the Net effect is. A video or two would be awesome!
Elkanen-Costumed is who I wanted...
Not chasing him anymore though.
Now with the upgraded EQUAL hit 3 vs his prior Target and minor nearby... at a solid 280% (which is 10% higher than Drake the Snakes). I was set on it due to this: instead of healing himself for 38% of the damage dealt he now gets to Enjoy a skill that was previously limited to the UnDead, the Vampires of our MeTa. A huge STEAL of 61% of any healing from the targets. Loved that skill when I ran with Valeria regularly (you get a handle on how to take advantage with it right away). So, this Tree Hugger is enjoying the VAMP LIFE Now. I wanted to do that! Wahhh.
AZLAR-Costumed is who I obtained...
In gambling for Legendary Costumes.
Azlar burns a big 430 vs the 3 damaged with the maxed costume. This is 25% more burn damage than Gravemaker does with his and Azlar's initial impact is more (but he is SLOW). Big factor is it can't be dispelled. The 50% double damage opportunity as well. Just not sure this is a great improvement or not. If anyone has any comments, if you already have him maxed and just have to max up the costume or plan to? I have already taken him off my plate unless someone has some good reasoning, which I am open to hearing. Thanks!
