Although this may be fairly old news to many of you, as I’m fairly new to the mobile version of the game, I’m very disappointed to find that summoned troops are a shadow of their original card incarnations. They don’t get any unlocked traits OR affect troop bonuses, is that right?
I’ll use my team as an example. Here’s my lineup:
Hero (Wicked Scythe/Necromancer)
Keeper of Souls
Now, I’ve had great success with this team so far. And I knew the downside going in that sooner or later, a spider swarm is going to pop up in my lead spot with its tiny attack score. I accept that. I figured if I invested some traitstones into the spider swarm, at LEAST I could count on dealing some poisoned skull damage.
But no. Nothing but a blank slate.
And, looking ahead to traiting out KoS, the 50% chance that something like a spider swarm could become a Wight is looking pretty good, but no benefits of the Wight’s traits/undead status.
I don’t agree with that. I mean, what’s the point of even having a standalone card for a creature like Spider Swarm, whose existence is mostly used through summoning, if you can’t take advantage of its traits when you summon them, however weak they might be?
What are your thoughts on this?
