And what happens when there is another "absorb damage" toon in the squad? Does GD still receive more damage or does GD receive less since the other one absorbs some damage from her? And how does GD's DR work in the meantime? Sorry for so many questions because I find myself more confused when more and more skills come together.
    The game can get hard to follow when so much stuff all comes together, I understand. You'll get it, don't worry. I'll do my best to explain though

    Out of the total damage dealt to your team, 35% of it is redirected from the other heroes on the team to the Great Dragon, or whatever other defender you have on the team. If more defenders are on the team, the same will happen with them. Say you have GD, Spirit of Faith, and three other random heroes. If an enemy attacks your whole team, 35% of the total damage will go to the GD and 25% will go to SoF. The remaining 40% of total damage is then distributed equally amongst all heroes in the squad. Don't worry, the enemy isn't dealing bonus damage. The damage is just being redirected to the "defenders" in the team, which usually have high health and other benefits to the team when they are hit (as you know, GD grants damage resistance to her teammates and drains power from enemies, SoF grants health and power to her teammates, etc), so other heroes that you might want to keep alive for longer will have a higher survivability.

    I hope that cleared things up a bit. If anything's still unclear, don't be afraid to ask.

      I remember the first time PC was updated, it felt revolutionary. 35% health and power to all warriors? It seemed so crazy at the time. I certainly approve of the idea of a new LC revamp wave though, specifically for PC, Phoenix, CSQ, and the older 3* dragons.

          She is pretty squishy. I find most LCs that don't benefit from squad buffs to be squishy. Her survability improves a lot when paired with Xenon. I currently use her with ND, LSC and BoTS although I haven't maxed BoTS yet. They get stunned a lot. Alternatively, I'm trying to put her in a quick stun/slow lock team.

            Thank you for that, I had no clue who was in the theirin family!

              I have a feeling King Maric will be seeing a bit more use. I'm trying GD, 2 KM, KA, and Xenon. It seems pretty solid, and KA can use Meredith's Key for extra power gain.

                Thanks for the explaination, Alduin. What if all the defenders absorb more than 100%? We know it would be capped to 100%, but how to distribute the damage between them?

                    So after a few days of usage, are we finding GD to be a legit top notch LC? Does her Defender status allow her to stay alive long enough consistently to take advantage of her 3x 2nd attack ability? I’m considering picking her up but just wanted to see what everyone’s experience has been like so far?

                    • When comparing LSC and Yavana, don't forget that LSC gives bonus damage to the opposite faction and power on ally death too, which Yavanna doesn't. Yavanna doesn't break faction with fully red characters though, but many powerful quick reds have half-white basement (RJS, VV, AL, AV etc).

                      Powerful quicks with red-blue base, such as Coles, hit randomly, which is not reliable. I wish we had more red-faction heroes to use with her (have a hopeless dream of huge Isabella revamp). Lurkers, Coles are the newest quicks who benefit the most from Yavana, imho.

                      ​Also, Lyeshal Russian translation of both new toons has really bad mistakes.

                          Yup, not only she's a beast but can turn into a beast toons paired with her, I don't have GD, but as far as I've seen BoTS can easily hit harder than her. And speaking of GD, and also seeing the chat about a nobie LC, they did adress her as "The Queen" on the comics, if she's granted such tag she'd be less squishy.

                          • Is Advisor Morrigan still considered a Witch of the Wild?
                            Is her Flemeth curse only applied to opponents or can it affect teammates?
                            Thanks

                              All variants of Morrigan are considered Witch of the Wilds. Her Flemeth thing only applies to opponents.

                              • First world problem moment: I wanted 2* Yavana but I got the Great Dragon, Maferath and Revenant Gurd instead. Y U NO LUV ME RNG gods?

                                My desire to welcome 2* Yavana has nothing to do with her usefulness to her teammates/ family but rather with the fact I have always had crush on this fearsome and scary (in a good way) woman

                                Violation of these terms is grounds for removal from EA Capital Games games and a report to Facebook.


                                What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
                                It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                                To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:


                                What happens if I break the rules?
                                At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Sr Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                                Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                                For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                                Posting Suggestions
                                In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                                1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion.
                                Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                                2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section.

                                3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available.

                                4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                                5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum.

                                6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                                7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                                In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:

                                EA TOS English
