Reuben Hero Review:

Reuben in Offensive raids

Damage wise, Reuben is somewhat average. White Rabbit (Riddles of Wonderland Challenge event) has 731 base attack stat and does 280% damage to 3 targets. Reuben has 766 attack and does 215% damage to 3 targets. Both heroes are Fast charge speed.

In terms of secondary effects, a 50% damage reduction to status effect really pales in comparison to a cleanse effect (Zimthika).

In terms of heroes that deal significant Damage over time, Reuben will be useful against heroes like Gravemaker, Azlar, Clarissa, Jean-Francois.

Reuben will NOT be very useful or have limited use against heroes like Vela. This is due to fact that the attack reduction debuff that vela inflicts is usually more game winning than her damage over time effect.

Overall, Reuben can be pretty useful in certain situations, but in majority of the situations, you would probably have other red heroes to pick from for your attack team.

Reuben in Defense

Give that the most effective attack teams are not reliant on damage over time effects, then Reuben really has limited use for his secondary effect on his special skill.

If we are solely looking at damage output, for killing enemy heroes, then there are many other heroes available for you to choose from.

However, Reuben can have quite a significant effect in Alliance war: Heal. This would severely hinder any heroes that has Damage over time effects.
