The Hall of Heroes is a very difficult dungeon where you can collect high grade monsters. Newcomers and lower-level Summoners, beware!
Another October is upon us, and once again we’re presented with a Jack-o’-lantern family for the Hall of Heroes. While Dusky, the Dark Jack-o’-lantern, does seem interesting due to his passive, the damage increase is just outright mediocre. His base attack is certainly respectable, but the overall damage output is just way too low to be truly effective. Multiple players have tested him out in both PvP and PvE situations, but there’s just way better alternatives out there. For both new and old players alike, you should definitely avoid building him.
That being said, there is still good coming out of this event. Chilling, the Water Jack-o’-lantern, has carved a niche (get it, carved, jack-o’-lanterns?) in plenty of DB10s, NB10s and World Arena teams. His buff removal is extremely useful in taking out threats like Theomars, since the multi-hits are likely to ensure an endure strip and kill when he’s low. The multi-hit strips makes him akin to Iris, the Light Magic Knight in PvP, especially after her nerf in the most recent balancing patch. His overall utility arguably makes him the only monster in his family that’s worth building.
Consider keeping the extra Duskys you get to feed to a Chilling as skillups, but make sure to always keep at least one! You’ll never know when Dusky will get buffed…again.
