New Legendary Troop: Holy St. Astra

Holy St. Astra will be available exclusively in Event Chests this week, and will make her way to Glory, Gem, Guild, and VIP chests in the usual 3-4 weeks.

I wish Holy St. Astra had a better spell, but she’s still worth getting due to that third trait.

Angry Mob has a funny sound effect, but is there mostly to handicap your soul farming team this week.

Holy St. Astra is a lot better than it looks. I wouldn’t knock it.

It adds life and armor (based on normal magic rate) to all allies (so 8x magic value worth of stats), self enchants herself and other relevant humans, and creates a light storm to help re-feed herself even slightly faster than the self-enchant.

Her first cast is also only 7 mana due to her 3rd trait.

An unchecked Holy St. Astra can make some battles a pain to win. I’d be a bit scared to see what a buffed HSA would do.

Yeah I wouldn’t say she needs buffs by any means. It’s just that healer-type troops, without any board modification or damage-dealing/enemy debuff ability, tend not to be great in this game by design. This dooms them to be somewhat niche, and reliant on other troops to work well. (But they still can be good on the right team - Astra+Tesla, for example, is an awesome combo.)

I also wanted to add that her lightstorm on cast isn’t great, since her cast ends a turn. You have to be very careful about giving the opponent a free lightstorm, in particular making sure they don’t have an exploder ready to cast.
