So I can update my LOTB Speadsheet I am working on.

Thanks

Is it just me or does he deal almost no damage... when i tryed kaijester's he used to deal 1k with his random target and 3k with his basic... and idk how much with his fury, but it didnt deal alot...

Do you run him in a certain team or what?

Why no love for aces high eddie?

(until I got SOL eddie to 5* he was my favourite main eddie)

sooo much damage output! love it!

This has really been a dead thread

Anyone using this guy? Just scored him with a Sacrificial soul and I'm not seeing the value yet - he seems like another 5* Eddie that needs a rework

Anyone have him maxed who thinks he's awesome?

There are only 5 skill shards to finish mine but I think he needs a rework in his abilities, for example I think guard and magic reflect are useless and I do not understand how skill shards could increase the damage of these abilities.Sorry for bad english...

I plucked this guy awhile back (Christmas Souls maybe?) and Aces High Eddie is one of my most used Eddies when playing manually, but that's mostly because I like the look/feel of him being a gunslinger. As far as his skills go, his basic attack is the same as Desert Marauders which criticals often enough. Triple Shot is like all of Storm Eddie's skills: Targets random enemies, good damage, if you use it and there's one enemy left they stand no chance. He has Rise (Pharaoh Sun Spirit) and Roulette (Soldier Ed) which are passable healing skills that are not unique to him. His Fury is reasonably powerful and pretty cool looking (love me some Trooper beer!). I don't have a single shard on him though...

...and this is why. His last 2 skills are shield skills that require a combined 8 skill shards to max, along with his other skills for a total of 24. I really want to max him since he's one of my favorites, but I can't pump 8 shards into nearly useless skills.

What gets me is that his Guard skill is almost the same exact skill that Warrior Troll has (WT protects all whereas Aces High is protects self). Yet, this one requires 4 skill shards while Warrior Troll requires 0. His other shield is a 2 turn shield that reduces magic damage and reflects physical damage. That requires 4 skill shards? Run To the Hills Eddie (a similarly Damage-based Eddie) has a skill that grants Magic Reflect Shield for the whole battle and it doesn't need any shards!

This is part of a larger issue I have with the haphazard assignment of what requires skill shards and what doesn't. Just a shame that one of my favorite characters has to have 2 useless skills that have this issue.

In short: Can be a fun to use glass cannon, but I wouldn't dump shards into him at this point.

Yeah, for those I spent some time thinking before putting skill shards on him, because those two skills are useless. Maybe changing them to aply for all allies or simply change them for some damage skill would be great.

I love the Gunner Eddies - Tailgunner and Navigator are two of my favorite Eddies - and have to admit I had fun with this guy tonight.

His fury will be monstrous if maxed. 8 shards towards shields? Agree - that's unfortunate and makes no sense.

Like my Rainmaker - I'm going to put one shard in a week. It will take five months but love the idea of having my Eddies maxed. Hopefully by then the developers will have reworked his skills - he's fun, but I'd say both of the 4* Gunner Eddies are more useful

That shouldn't be the case...

Totally agree, It would be great if the devs did something about it.

I also agree. A 5 star Eddie should not have 2 very similar shield abilities that only protect himself (and also eat 8 skillshards). I like this Eddie and want to use him but I find tailgunner much more useable and that should not be the case since he is only 4 stars. Does not make sense. Need to replace one of those shields with some other utility move or something.

Don't shard this guy! I've thrown a few in and most have gone to his fury. Each time I added one I'd do a test run on GoD and there was NO change in how his Fury affected the SDs in GoD. It's now completely maxed and the same as when it started.

I'll put in a bug report...

Should get corrected. Reported to support and Jeremy got back to me. They said they noticed a bug with the scaling and will address it in a future update.

I love this Edward and he has long been the last of them that I really wanted -- finally got him about a month ago, but haven't dumped any SS into him for all the reasons you guys said.

I am probably the biggest Dark Tower nerd on the forum, which is why I longed for this bastard. He's a much more "metal" version of Roland, which gives me a mad nerd-boner.

With the new strike talisman environment this Eddie could prove very useful in PvP.
What say you devs, any chance of a replacement for one of those shields and a fix for fury scaling?

I just got him too so I would welcome a dev look at his skills as he seem to have a decent set of moves just that they are imbalanced a bit and as others say a skill shard deep hole to fill that looks worthless - Nicko thanks for going to support on it as this guy looks like he could be a contender in PVP if he is looked at - he needs to be more five star.

Got this guy today after tons of luck at sacrifice :)
Bought 10 souls, got shaman and sacrificed him and a few other for a tier 6. Got 15 gunner souls and got cyborg and vampire, sacced those and a few others for tier 5 and got 10 gunner souls, and i got aces high from those 10 :)

My last gunner eddie, only viking and fear of the dark left to complete the collection

Nice! Four 5* Eddies from 35 souls is exceptional.

I bought a 10 pack of souls today and all I got was 3* toons, including the souls from the following sacrifices.

I just unpacked him from g/A souls that I got from the void, with some legendary souls and skill shards. To be honest, he seems fun, but I seriously have no idea what talismans I should slap on him. For now I run with 3 strike safeguard talismans, 2 boost will talismans and one random green talisman for some survivability. Also I see people complaining about using skillshards on him, so I decided to ask people: should, or shouldn't I max him out?

Now he's been buffed up in the recent update, what's the feed back on him? Is he worth the 20odd Skill Shards or not? He looks a great counter to the legions of VHE, and other assassins with Immortality Talismans.

His basic attack do less damage but much more for each buff pn enemies. I have only done pve so far but it is around 4k extra damage for each buff.
Do or die deals about 13k and removes effects which is good. I think you should try him a few days and see what your own opinion is.
I love maxed eddies anyway :p

His fury got way better with guard shield to all allies and added crits.

Triple shots crit is not working. I get that crit chance icon but it has never critted after that.

Is his basic shoot skill no longer based on special stats?

What do skill shards effect for do or die? Description says healing increase still? Is it just more damage for each level?

Thank you, NF for 19 skillshards in about a week. I began to shard my AH Eddie last week after the update. Skullquests, Achievements, Arena Event and the Stores gave them to me. Please continue that drop rate. ��

Edit 27.09. Only 3 shards missing.

Got 28 rare G/A souls from a tier VI sacrifice the other day and pulled Aces High from them. He's looking very nice after his recent buffs/skill changes. Feel like sharding one of my Gunner Eddies and am deciding between him and Cyborg (or waiting for Navigator who still eludes me).

Browno

Tough one. I like both of them but aces probably have more fun factor in pvp at least.

After the pumpkin slaughter last week I have enough shards to max them both and still have lots left, but it feels like an overkill to max two gunner Eddies.

I already have VHE maxed which is enough for my PvP needs so PvP utility is not a large factor.

If you are aiming for pve i would say cyborg :)

So it seems that there really isn't a good recommended set for this Eddie? I just received him last night from a Shrieking Soul and I've been chasing this one for awhile. I'd like to use him but I'm not sure if he's really worth the shards from what you all are saying...

HuckFinn150
01-21-2019, 01:45 PM
Mine is maxed with all shards and immunity, guardian and shock talismans. He's still ok, but just not as strong as the newer Eddie's. I still use him for gauntlet, but not really much else anymore. I quit using him when I got navigator. Aces is still a strong and usable Eddie.

Mitch-4441
01-21-2019, 05:12 PM
I'll definitely give him a go and see how it goes. Thanks for the input y'all.
