    @Joel What is "Stun"? Did you mean "Daze"?

    And thanks for Jewelled and Brawny uses!!

    But why keep the Coldfires?

    And why does she hate Yasmin, is that a holdover from Ember?

    I doubt it, no other Light heroes do.

  • Since the edit was posted, they elaborated on her basic which is now a guaranteed hit and forces the character she hit to attack her next turn, like a targeted taunt. Interesting that it's on her basic.

    Dark and light weakness exist

    Technically, Dark deals +30% vs Light and vice versa, but neither suffers the -25% against another element like Fire does against Water for example.

  • How does "Can't Touch This" work with "Perfect Strike/Shot"? Usually perfect strike/shot guys can be dazed it just doesn't do anything because the chance to miss is irrelevant. But this says she WILL dodge if they are dazed, 100%. So which ability wins?

    I can only unlock 1 of the 2 heroes. Which will be better in the long run to concentrate on?

    @Foozle Aria is the more expensive, and likely more powerful, of the two. She is Legendary.

    I suppose might as well work towards unlocking both, then can play with them to decide where to focus future tokens. Always nice to have more Tower fodder, so the extra hero, even at 1 star, is a good thing.
  • Cool hero! It seems expensive to unlock her, upgrade stars, and ascend though.

    Are you going to tag future male heroes as 'Male' or is it assumed they're male unless you tag them as female?

  • Wait what if Therand or some hero with Perfect Swing is dazed? What will happen?

    I also realize that this one resembles my profile pic. All she would need is a flying cloud and it would be perfect.

    also just why:Can't Touch This: Extensive Training provides +40% chance to Dodge Ranged attacks and WILL dodge any attacker that is Dazed or Off-Balance.
    passive 40% dodge chance with final ascension along with the legendary ability=75% dodge to range without daze, not including the dazes normal effect essentially making her unhittable. A normal attack that forces people to target her with also dazing abilities which she will dodge any moves. compiled with a buff to that dodge revenge. Oh and you know give perfect swing to her normal attack.

    FFS if your going to do this to all legendaries give IGOROK a ability where they give buffs to attack and defense for water allies.

    Do any of you test these out in PVP or at all?
    I feel like this is the same thing as to why kai exists.

    Is the "Dodge This!" ability supposed to work on all normal and special attacks? I have seen it fail to counter various specials -- for example, I just dodged a BD Assassinate (the BD was dazed, but it was a "dodge" not a "miss"). Working as intended or bug? @Joel @Joveth

    I got beat up badly in pvp by a diseased 3 star Aria one level below me. My rogues never dodged and deseased didn't seem to slow her down. Of course, I haven't faced an undeased one and hope I don't.
  • The disease started in her face

    I got the bramble unlock screen when I unlocked Aria.
    Maybe a few more pennies
