    Just like the Spanish Inquisition! Never expected! ;-p
  • Will this hero ever be made available in the Heroic portal?
  • He is cute! He looks like a little pit bull. :-)
  • How does paralyze work? And what’s the speed on this new hero please?

    I didn't expect the first blue response to be this

    I'd like to know the answer to this as well.

    He's a medium speed hero isn't he?

    If they don't have the slow or fast tag, they're normal speed. :)
    Paralysis: Chance to lose turn and take damage. The debuff has an icon that you can find on enemies that have been paralyzed.

  • Yay for Marrow's abilities. Boo on the name. Doesn't really work. Oh well...

    I'm with you, not sure how the name came up.

    Maybe they mixed Marrow with Minnow?

    I like the name Marrow. It's not like the other heroes who have really predictable names. Fire bird? Solaris. Wow. Plant Caster? Lilly, hey that's a flower! Yet Marrow has no connection to electricity whatsoever. It's refreshing, actually.

  • Maybe they were thinking he's cute, but he'll gnaw your bones and eat the marrow?
  • erm. just found this:
    https://www.nationalgeographic.com/animals/fish/group/anglerfish/

    marrow is supposed to be female?
  • Why is he easy to get if he is a new hero?
  • Man i dont think ive ever hated a new hero this much. Hes clearly useless since he just dies to shade every time and doesnt contribute all that much anyway. And yet if i dont purchase his tokens i feel like im hurting my guild since bi depends on his stars.

    If were going to make bi score depend on some random and useless hero can we pick like sifu next time? Someone most people have 6*ed already at least.

    Dunno what you're talking about... Dude is nuts. Star him up and have some halfway decent runes on him and his damage is insane. Of course he can't take a hit, but he's a Caster so that's to be expected.

    Thank god Shade has to attack the auto-taunting tank that accompanied him instead of one shotting the light low health/defense hero that he has the elemental advantage against.

    Did you even read what CentralCommand posted?

    But shade ignores taunt though.

    I did. But I don't see his point. He sucks because he's a Light hero who gets 1-shot by Shade...? That's... that's every Light hero.

  • Mk doesn't. Leo also. Definitely not bauble. I like him though. I imagine him to be a the league of kreel. Just kind of another niche hero.
    Awesome Farfella guy up there was created by jackhallow666^!!!
    Also, go gorgons!
  • I think he can only be used against teams without an opening shade or shadowblade. However, against those teams, I think a team with Marrow, Ekko, and Shade, or Marrow Koros Hopper Igorok could actually do good. Not the Solaris-killing hero we need ;)
  • Marrow is great, I just hoped he could've healed the team some way. The (actually) good Monster team can't heal team (I'm not talking about the trash Phenol), the only people who can heal is IGOROK, Koros, Hopper, and Phenol. I loathe Phenol. Where's the team heals though? We need that.

  • Technically Marrow can self heal with Lure, but not much and only if the opponent has buffs. A monster healer would make the team actually pretty good.

    I forgot about that maggot named Marrow! Thanks for reminding me that Lure heals lol.

    I think the Monsters shouldn’t have a Healer. Not every team should have a Healer. Rather, the should all be able to self-heal. All the monsters except Phemus can self heal. Maybe make Phemus able to self-heal somehow, increase Phenol’s Jiggle healing, and increase Marrow’s Lure healing. Then they wouldn’t even need a Healer.

  • IGOROK and Marrow would really need better methods of healing. Lure only heals if the opponent has buffs, so it is very situational, and IGOROK's only works if he attacks a frozen enemy, which means they didn't already die. Maybe Phenol's Taunt should add regen to all monsters?
