November 2019 New Heroes Review – Empires and puzzles

Hero of the Month : Neith

Stats – Balanced, average.
Special: Sickle of Eradication
Mana Speed : Average
Deals 150% damage to all enemies.
Reduces the mana of all enemies by 10%.
All enemies get -35% accuracy for 4 turns. Chance to miss also applies to offensive Special Skills.
Element link mana 4%

The most similar hero in this mix is definitely Justice. If we were to compare her directly with Justice, Neith definitely loses out in terms of defensive stats, but in return makes it up with her mana speed.

Reduction of mana effect can also be quite useful here on defense as it makes it more difficult for the opponents to fire their specials. However its’ effect is negligible in offense.

The better stats and mana speed make Neith more viable in offensive roles than Justice.

Still not good enough for the ascension materials though.

Hero rating:
Offence – B
Defence – B
Titan – C
Overall B

Jabberwock Hero Review:

Lets start with the upsides.
Special Looks fun, Family bonus is pretty awesome. Her special can be used in Clutch moments to save the day and win you the round, as a sort of fail safe.

Jabberwock has a pretty cool special skill that’s very unique. It is well designed with both upsides and downsides.

The upside is that the skill always target the more squishy wings. However, you won’t be able to kill them with just this skill. You will require some tiles and 2 or 3 activations of Jabberwock’s Sideswipe, or combined with another sniper’s special (Lianna, Sartana, Joon etc)

The downside is that you will not be able to quickly take down the tank, or pesky flanks that are about to fire quickly. Thus in offensive raids, you will want to select Jabberwock when you spot opportunities to quickly snipe heroes like Alberich or Mother North who’s always on the wing.

But if that’s the case, another sniper would be able to do the exact same job…

Jabberwock also shines on defense. His locked in targeting allows you to place him in tank or flank position, which can be devastating for a poorly planned offense.

Jabberwock also excels against titan due to his high skill damage, alongside his decent stats.

White Rabbit Hero Review

A holy version of Athena. But better, and faster.

Excels against Titans,

Excels in offense

Above average in defense. Synergistic effect of defense down + duration reset + can’t be dispelled is extremely difficult to play around.

Defense down means your opponent’s heroes are going to take more damage, which means that they would love to heal up heroes that are about to die. But if they heal, the duration is reset, which means their heroes will still take additional damage, and die easily. Bringing heroes that dispel status ailments are also ineffective..
