    Most valuable 2-star, purple+1 hero in the game: shadow shaman

    And it is really because of a single skill, Vayne's Blessing which does not scale with gear or stars. You get a huge damage shield that is perfect for characters that can heal themselves if they get a bit of a breather.

    If you have problem with magic/physic trial level 6 (and in a few months, 7 and 8) definitely add him to your team. He needs little-to-no investment to be good.

    2-star purple+1 shadow shaman and

    death mage/frost mage/old curse/mystic for magic trial
    cloud walker/tusked storm/vengeance spirit/leave shadow for physical trial

    Now if only there is a cheap team for all-girl trial . . .

    I agree! I have been using him from level 40 and could not stress enough how much he has been a help to my fragile Sapper even now at 88 orange.

    I still choose him over Chaplain any day.

    Except that every time when i use him. He casts it at the wrong time on the wrong guy. Not to mention he dies when someone sneezes on him

    Yeah I've been trying mine out and running him against different combinations. He pretty much never does what I want him to. If I could just manually control him, he would be a beast.

    I think his skill set is really strong, just that his animations are way too slows. Sometimes he was about to cast the blessing but get interrupted half way because of long cast time. The US animation is really slow too ...

    Replaced Chaplain with him long ago.

    He's still super-efficient at low stars.

    Underwhelming hero AI, regarding skill usage, is not only an issue for SS... it plagues most heroes. So, I don't hold it against him too much.

    I consider him the second best support/healer hero in the game, behind Chaplain. A pity that there are so few situations that NEED a support/healer in the current game build. Really curious to see how hardmode crusades, ancient temple, and later on King's Tower might change the value of the role.
    Life would be better with more Legos, and more naps.

    From 1.8 preview: - Ancient Temple: This feature will be unlocked randomly during battles. You will need to invite your fellow guildmates to help complete it and get awesome awards of hero gear and other items.

    That's all the info we got i think

    What Hcskit said, it has a brief description in the 1.8 preview page over in the official news forum. Kind of struck me as a weird mix of Booty Caves and raiding.
