So many times when I am fighting storm and I cast my minion, I get a storm minion.
When I am fighting fire and cast my minion I get fire and same with ice.
This happens ALL the time :(
I hesitate to even waste the pips to cast my minion some times. I have even re-casted to get a different minion and same thing usually happens. One time I re-cast 4 times and finally gave up and just fought with little help from my minion.
I would love it if it were more like the death minion where the minion you get is decided by how many pips you have.
If that bothers you so much, you could just stick with the Helpful Mander.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE this game.
I just had an idea and since this is the "idea" place, I thought I would put my two cents worth in.
When I started this post, I had just finished fighting Marva Flamwing. Believe me this is not a battle that you want a storm minion on. I re-cast 4 times trying to get anything other than storm, then I just gave up and finished the battle with my storm minion. At least my earthquake and reshuffle worked well
I might try the Mander just for fun some time but really the fire , ice and storm work well; just not when fighting against their respective school. And for me, the odds of getting them when I am fighting their school is really high :-(
Is there a secret to this casting of a Balance minion? I learned with a life minion not to cast until I had taken some damage. She heals wonderfully now. So maybe there is some secret with a Balance Minion as well?
