Summoners, the Necrosword Crystals (the crystals in the Knull Cavalier Preview Bundle) currently have a higher than intended drop rate of 6-Star Champions.

We will be leaving the crystals as is for the time being, but will be correcting the drop rates before Knull receives his official release on October 28th. To ensure that this does not affect anybody that purchased this preview bundle, we will be auto-opening these crystals before that date, but this means you will not see what you received. To avoid any confusion, please open your crystals yourself ASAP.

Hey everyone. I’ve been thinking about suicides a lot, and obviously the biggest factor that plays into the decision to run them or not is recoil. I think it makes sense that there’s a sacrifice to get the damage boost, but I’m curious if you think recoil should be revised. I don’t think removing it completely would be smart, because then everyone would run suicides and there’d be no real reason not to unless you don’t run willpower. But do you think it would be reasonable to drop the percentage of damage taken per special from 5 to 3 percent? Or lower the damage by .75 percent for every level in it? What would you suggest, or would you even change anything? I’d love to hear your thoughts! In addition, if you have any tips or tricks to get around recoil that you’d like to share, go for it!

    Rulk special 2 will regenerate a touch more then the recoil damage. And with synergy even more
    Rouge special 1 will almost always draw more health then recoil
    Omega special 1 with 10+ spores with out heal the recoil

    They are know as suicides. You need to sacrifice something for attack boost. +60% is a huge boost, so fights are quite faster than with a normal mastery setup.

    This should continue like it is. Imagine removing recoil, most players will switch to suicides masteries and Kabam will start increasing health pools of future path defenders and bosses. I don't want that
