    Side effect on her A3 is that she places incr. DEF on herself as well. That is not mentioned even in the skill description in the game. So when booked, she can have incr. DEF on herself all the time.

    Hi, I am trying to find a champ that can help me with leech for UNM and I think she can be suitable. I have Ma’Shalled and definitely he is much better, however his leech comes with increase speed that changes the turn order on my team. I am starting to use DWJ CB Calc and do not understand to well. any advise here about her or even better about the calculator

    Continuous heal for one turn is not only an oxymoron, its pretty useless!

  4. sajfer

    I’m curious, she appears to be well suited for completing 3* nightmare campaign to protect the weaker attack champion with 2 turn cooldown ally protection?

  5. jakefromstatefarm

    @Ayumilove: not to worry. I’m 100% sure the guaranteed crit used to be a hidden effect. They didn’t change the skill but Plarium added the guaranteed crit to the skill description. I didn’t recall them writing anything about fixing the description in any patch notes, probably because they didn’t change anything about the skill itself.

    @jakefromstatefarm: I just notice there were some skill changes for Canoness. I’m not sure why Plarium did not mentioned them in the Champion Balancing patch notes or I may have missed them out.
    Blinding Assault [DEF] (Cooldown 4 turns) – I’ll add in the new effect (This attack is always critical).
    Stalwart Guardian (Cooldown 4 turns) – The 15% Continous Heal buff decreases from 2 turns to 1 turn.

  7. Epicflailtheidiot

    If it has always said that, then explain why AyumiLove doesn’t even write it? You think he just left out part of the skill description? No, it’s because it used to not mention the guaranteed crit, and it was a hidden effect. I have had her since September. Maybe you should do some research before you call someone out. Idiot.

  8. Epic FlaiL-

    @jakefromstatefarm: You must not be able to read, Cononess’ A2 states and I quote, ” Attacks one enemy. Has an 80% chance of placing a 50% [Decrease ACC] debuff on the target for 2 turns. ‘THIS ATTACK IS ALWAYS CRITICAL'”

    FYI I have had Canoness since January and this has ALWAYS said that. So either you need to learn to read or maybe you need to learn to pay attention. Fool…..

  9. MaxBT

    I can’t believe there are many Support/Defense champs with Attack Mastery, it seems wrong in usage concept when a designer made a shield and users use it to attack.

  10. jakefromstatefarm

    I think it’s important to note that her A2 – Blinding Assault has a hidden effect where it always lands a critical hit. I don’t know why it isn’t included in the description but I’m sure it’s the case. Test it out and let me know:)

  11. Bobby Desouza Jackson

    Nope sorry just found out it is only for one person.

  12. Bobby Desouza Jackson

    I would think she would have better stats because she has a 2 turn Ally protection and defense.

    @SATYABRATA PATRA: I would recommend other champion instead of Canoness. She does not help your team overall even though she deals damage like a truck.


    I m in lvl 32 in Raid, I got a Canoness today should I use her or not ,

  15. Shure

    Hi, thanks for all your excellent work, you have made this game much more understandable and fun. I think that there may be a little error regarding Canoness. She has a 5 star rating in 11 fields, and here it is shown as if she was terrible everywhere. Can you please correct her rates and maybe ranking. Tnx and keep up the good job.
