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.

    Cannot compare. Both add very solid value to a roster. Only thing you should compare is who to rank up first based on progression level. Although you cannot go wrong with either, one might prove to be more useful based on where you are in the game.

    I don't have a 5 or 6* Herc so take this with a grain of salt, but I would guess that Herc is better for shorter content and Aegon for longer. I doubt that a fully ramped-up Herc can compete with a fully ramped-up Aegon, but an unramped Herc definitely beats an unramped Aegon and has a much faster ramp-up than Aegon does.

    One of the things that has always annoyed me with Aegon is that you don't really have access to anything from the get-go with him. You can shrug off debuffs reliably...eventually. You can gain true strike reliably...eventually. You can be a god...eventually. He just starts at a crappy place and then slowly build from there, and I've never really gotten along with that playstyle. I find him so difficult to take into a hard fight immediately because he just doesn't have the utility to handle it until he's reached X amount of hits.

    Herc doesn't seem to have that problem, at least not to the same extent.

    I would personally go with Herc because I feel like his playstyle fits me better as a player, but if you can go either way in that department then I think it really depends on what type of content you're out to beat. Herc is probably the better one for the majority of content (especially since Act 7 lanes have been fairly short) but Aegon will most likely beat his butt in stuff like the Abyss.
