Please don't incorporate Jammers into the new Greek Gods please please please
Mr Wiggles in reply to Walrus 5 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
Dude they've been using Awoken for the first evolved forms of Descended bosses since the beginning. Hera -> Awoken Hera -> Divine Queen Hera; Hera-Is -> Awoken Hera-Is -> Permafrost Queen, Hera-Is; Athena -> Awoken Athena -> Guardian of the Sacred City, Athena; etc. It's only more recently with Greco-Romans, Egyptians, and other REM-exclusive pantheons that they introduced the trend of naming the most powerful uvo as Awoken; they're gonna keep naming the first evo Awoken for Descended bosses though
Walrus 5 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
Anything involving Jammers and Poison orbs for full LS activation is an instant turn off for me. I would have expected better results for the effort and sacrifice, this is so disappointing, I really wanted this card to be good specially since the name implies it is an awoken god, although in reality it's his first Evo

We should be fine so long as we can build teams that don't look for the attribute turned into jammers (i.e. you wouldn't put anything dark-aligned on a Hephaistos team, so dark orbs might as well BE jammers when they drop. Putting aside anything else that converts dark orbs, like Misato, anyway...).

EDIT: Come to think of it, needing Hel to awaken didn't make Freyja dependent on poison orbs, so I think we're safe in that regard. (It still feels a little early to bring out awoken Hellenic-2 gods, though...)

The way I see it, Awoken Greek 2 will probably convert jammers and poison to their main color, maybe a 1 turn haste cause everyone's been getting that added to their AS.

Greek god. But a tribal tattoo hmmm

Warning: Rant incoming (scroll down to avoid)

Ok so first, what the hell is with this art Gungtroll? I appreciate the cameo of other cards' weapons in there and also the cyclops, but mythologically Hephaestus was a cripple. So where's his cool steampunk mechanical legs or transforming wheelchair mech suit? And I won't take "Greek gods being able to shapeshift into any form they wish" as an excuse.

Second, he's the god of the forge. The last thing a cripple forgemaster would do is to be carrying around that fiery spear of all things, which would be as useful for him as a walking stick. I'll let the hammer slide since it'd be used for his whole forgemaster thing. Still, Attacker type makes little sense considering his mythological role as a person who lets others do the fighting, Machine would be more appropriate (even though i also realize that Machine is underused and Fire/Attacker would be more useful from an in-game perspective)

Third, the theme of his AS/LS is revolved around Jammers, a gimmick that sees as much use as carbuncles do in Arena. The whole screwup with Fenrir was already disappointing, seeing as such an impressive mythological being would be reduced to one of the most garbage gimmicks in the entire game. Now Hephaestus joins the party, and he's not even the same color as Fenrir and actually breaks Dark orbs, so neither Fenrir nor Hephaestus benefit from this curse that will keep them useless until viable subs and leaders that are Jammer focused start coming out.

Fourth, as a person who started out with a pseudo-grind Persephone team as starting roll back in the simpler days of 2013 PaD, as well as a person who wanted to see Hephaestus in game for awhile now, I hope to the gods that Hephaestus isn't reduced to being useless fodder for Awoken ults, and even more so that Awoken Greek 2 gods don't include this whole Jammer-reliant garbage. Jammer orbs are made to be useless, Gungtroll had better not curse the Greek 2 Awokens with useless garbage add-ons.

Whoever reads this far, have a nice day.

That 'spear' he's holding is actually the blade of Minerva/Zeus Vulcan's sword without it's hilt.

Also, I want robo-legged machine type Heph too.

Recently released descended gods are often weak awoken materials.
Not this guy.
I see him as a non-rem sub.
First-off, his stat weight is great for a non-rem monster.
He has the attacker sub-type which is rarer than most, meaning he could fit into some attacker teams.
His active is pretty good - if used after a Leilan active, you'd get a 2/3 enhanced fire board, for example. The jammers require some planning, however light -> fire & fire enhance seems worth it. That fire enhance can bring a big damage boost! Plus, even if the jammer meta seems silly to you, this guy will be a staple for some jammer teams.
Finally, his awoken skills - as a non-rem card he's expected to have few. Skill boost is always relevant, and his prong awakening is good too. His fire enhance synergizes with his active skill.

Overall I think he's stronger than the other descended gods released recently

I don't see all the hate for Hephaestus. The jammers are, indeed, useless and hindering for some, but they could be easily tolerated with board-changers and well-planned comboing, not to mention they don't really hurt you, like poison. Besides, he's basically a farmable Chiyome with more attack, so why all the hate?
XCWarior 5 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
Good point. I have Squall (actually 2, but only one is max skilled), and he wipes out Jammers in case you have some left over.

Denebola is pleased :D
Mr Wiggles 5 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
Now I wish even more that I'd pulled Denebola instead of Algedi... Oh whale, REM is RNG, hopefully I'll find a use for Algedi eventually :P
El Rayo in reply to Mr Wiggles 5 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
lol word. well i need Denebola allies so if you know any, please let them know about me! I max skilled Hephaestus this past weekend and I'm stoked to evolve and run him on Deb.
By candy 5 years ago ( 8.7.0 ) 
Combos with Antares or any of the mech1 gods which can turn jammers into their element. For Antares, the red mech1 god, that'd mean for two actives you get a board with fire, green and blue orbs - A board that's 2/3 fire.
And at 8 turns CD, if Hephaestus' active is followed by Antares, then thanks to haste, Hephaestus' active will become available again @ the same time as Antares'.
By Starspark 5 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
LS should be ATK x6, RCV x9 when Athena is in the same team ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
By WorldSend 5 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
The only two I can recognise off the top of my head are Athena's shield Aegis and A. Minerva/Zeus Vulcan's sword (the one he's holding).
FlyingKing 5 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
Artemis's bow is right next to Aegis, i believe. Could be Apollos'?
GoonSrting 5 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
You know, I have a feeling that he's going be used for the ultimate evo for awoken ares. Also He's holding Ares' spear

Ooh, I'm glad I didn't sell Denebola. This is a farmable sub that is basically perfect for her and will give her a consistent 36x attack. If only they had awakenings to take better advantage of the enhanced orbs.
By greml1n 5 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
Fenrir sub?
Kirihiko 5 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
And get rid of dark orbs? Nah.
SirOsis>>s 5 years ago ( 9.0.3 ) 
Fenrir viz sub? Yes pls. I understand not wanting to dump dark orbs for the dark version, but with the light version, you can have a pretty nice rainbow build, or, in this case, fire brigade.

Edit - Didn't realize his only skill up mat was himself, so scratch this probably drunken initial response all together. Gotta steer clear of that fire water.

By Chrispy!PF 5 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
His active skill is surprisingly good for a farmable. almost as good as sanada, who is REM. sanada makes hearts though, which is extra useful. but same cooldown, same build in enhance.
By Chrispy!PF 5 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
Look at that g0dd4mn hipster beard on that cyclops. just look at it.
By Moldy 5 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
... Huh.

I just realized that Hephaestus has the same L -> F Orb Change that Chiyome does, as well as the Jammer one and the Fire Orb Enhance. To tack on those two only adds on three more cooldown.

He also has a TPA and a Skill Boost like Chiyome, and trades out the Fire Row for Orb Enhance. Ditches the Blind Resists entirely.

Furthermore, he has more than 800 HP and 200 ATK than her in exchange for less than half of her RCV.

Finally, Chiyome is Balanced/Devil and Hephaestus is God/Attacker. At least there, they can cover different, specific teams.

Considering that Chiyome is REM (and can only have an increased rate when pulling during specific Carnivals) and Hephaestus is farmable, who's better?

If you're referring to the Blind Resists, I already mentioned that Heph "ditches the blind resists", heh.

Chiyo also has shades.
Greg! 5 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
Chiyome has an incredible 5 turn CD. For many, that can be a game winning difference.

This is somewhat useable for a Shiva Dragon team. Sure, the jammers are a nuisance, but tolerable. Shiva Dragon teams should really aim for rows over TPA anyhoo (yes, it has tpa too, but if you run Rodin and Shiva, rows are the best course)
By Justin 5 years ago ( 8.6.2 ) 
This is great for people who have ShivaDra but don't have any Ares/Uriel or don't have four of them total. His dungeon's not insane, and if you could max skill several of them, you could fill your ShivaDra team with him for a pseudo-system. With one SB each on an eight turn CD for all three monsters, you can use each of them once, then activate both ShivaDra to get them all back up, and use them all again once each. ShivaDra/Ares/Ares/Ares/Ares/ShivaDra is obviously ideal, but if you have less than four, you can fill the rest with Uriel, and if you still don't have enough, just max skill one of these.

You know, if you don't like Thanksgiving dinner here's what you do- when no one is looking, take all the contents of your plate and roll it up into a ball and hide it in your coat. Later on, when you go out back to smoke cigars with the boys, start coughing and throw all the food in your coat on the ground and say "d*mn, these are some good cigars!"
