    Keep an eye on your energy or stamina or token total. If MK triggers no ene/sta/token is deducted.

    He saves you stamina and energy. He doesn't have to be the primary general to do this (I have him as the final general in most of my stacks). I have him at 6* lvl 80, so get 15% 'refunds' plus atk/def over 2500 each (with alliance). Plenty nice! The extra hits are very nice in guild battles especially.

    (And I don't care about no notice - if I'm near leveling, I just pay attention so I can judge my hitting (and know if/when to switch to Barbarus). You get used to it after a little while.)

    Nice MK! At 6*, he would require 8 copies or $720 on the monthly promotion installment plan.

It turns out that I don't have MK in my monster hunting alliance after all but I use MK for guild battle and energy expenditure, and he's pretty useful.
    1. I can only state facts. I leveled MK to lvl 4 and forgot about him. The Reaper commented ON THE FORUMS that even at low levels, MK was saving him energy on excavations. Then the lightbulb goes off and that started the process for me to build runes efficiently.

    2. I am a data guy and need independent verification. As you know, only the top 100 winners were disclosed and Orlando had won that event. There was NO WAY for me or anyone else on forum (who had not heard of you at that time) to be aware of you so you could get any credit.

    The forum was discussing how LSI builds could get MK FOR FREE and a light slender (long time player and huge contributor on Forums) like Nate was denied his MK.

    Keep in mind the events where he's a reward.... (Top 1000 is relatively low-cost to reach. And there are other rewards, so the cost amortizes across all the 'loot'.) And - since he is effectively a 15% off the cost of doing things, in the long run he pays for himself. It's not a consideration for folks who don't spend on the game, true - but for those who do, even moderately, he makes a lot of sense.

    Now I just went thru 4500 stamina and 2000 energy on an Ouroboros, at 100 stamina hits, and Monkey King never triggered. Even with falling under the curve possibilities, this seems off.

    It didn’t seem off when you were getting positive variance as you stated in the original post.

    Even Barathor stated as such.

    I have MK at 9.2% chance and have gone 20 tokens and not triggered it. The random number generator in Castle Age is streaky.
