2nd Malosi or Joon

3 Years and finally Joon shows up. (no costume)
Maxed: Malosi | Poseidon | Viv (cotume) | Onatel | Sif (what was I thinking?!)
Rest of bench deep. Lots of cleaners, healers, dispellers
6 Darts ( 24 Tabards - where is the justice lol)
3 x L11 - 23 Troops

Joon would’ve been the obvious choice a year ago but

status ailment heroes are a thing now

Primary use: War Depth
Mostly run 3/2 split so doubt I will run 2 of him in RT (bloody battle perhaps)

Emblems swings it Joons way but I do not care for def. Malosi’s block is def in it’s own right & very fast. Use him without vs 4700 TP teams not a problem

It’s clear I’m leaning towards Malosi 2, why is that a good / bad idea? Thx in advance :smiley:

I Got both and maxed both. U need strong sniper. Malosi usefull but hits kinda weak

In my honest opinion, and I have at least two of both, I would go with Joon first
Whichever hero you choose good luck

Ikr, Joon is great, no regrets going with him before Malosi.

I agree Joon and if you get his costume do two.

Since maxing Malosi I have found I only rarely use Joon, despite his being my only serious holy sniper. He is on my squad for purple titans where his blind is very helpful and I use him in each war, but never in regular raiding. I think for war depth, even if purple tanks were to come back into vogue, a second Malosi would ultimately be more useful. If you did not have Poseidon already then Joon’s punch would fill that role nicely.

Purely hypothetical, but suppose you pair Malosi with two Jackals in a 3x yellow stack. Would Jackal not make Malosi hit as hard if not harder than Joon? Plus all 3 are very fast, so if you can manage a lv11 mana troop and two lv5 mana troops (assuming you take the mana node on Jackal at +8), you’ve got three hitters ready to go in just 2 matches.

Same here. This is exactly what I’m thinking too. Ailment is a much bigger threat. I hardly use Poseidon. Unless Hel is present I would use a L20 Gretel (mana node + L17 Troop) and or Viv Costume

I have, will try it, but it seems as a high risk strategy. Jackal die just from a few normal hits vs 4600+ teams, if you get a bad board there will be no time to try recover.

20 Thank you’s :smiley:

Much as I love using Joon (no Poseidon here), for war depth I’d probably lean towards Malosi and his very fast ailment block.

Ok now, a tiny curve ball… would you guys go for a 4th Joon (yeah, I already got 3 maxed) or Sif?

(Sorry for the highjack. I figured it was a bit related…)

No problem, it is. Imho another Joon, but I would wait for something else. Drake on my wish list. Sif is a defensive hero, but as we all know, their roles change quickly and often. I never ever max heroes for defence only. Her mana, etc is okay but hardly makes up for her being in an attack team. She is truly meh, I forgot about her the moment I maxed her. If we could reset heroes I would do it in a heartbeat. She doesn’t even get used in wars by me. That says something…

I have Joon, Malosi, and three Jackals. My yellow stack is Joon+Malosi+Jackal, and lemme tell ya… I would never replace Joon with a second Jackal. :wink: Jackal+Joon destroys one target, Malosi nullifies the usefulness of a second carefully selected target… and then drop yellow tiles through the hole made by the first target’s death and repeat until the enemy team is dead. :smiley:

Joon can take hits much better than Jackal can, so I would never do Jackal+Jackal+Malosi, myself.

Good gaming!

Thanks a lot. I’ll probably wait 12 darts to max her then, if I ever do it. As a very c2p player, great 5* are hard to come by. Vanilla it is for me, most of the times (that’s why I’m at 3 Joon…) I dream about Drake, Onatel, Malosi, Rabbit and even Jackal. So I’m not sure I’ll get anything better than Joon IV in a near future.

Hope you do buddy. I think it’s the right call, that said, I didn’t rate Malosi when he just came out because he hits soft and only blocks one. I was very wrong then, so I could be about Sif. She ain’t bad, she’s just not great. I have Onatel, she was fun for a while, use her in every war. Would I swap her mats to max a 2nd Malosi, yes, for a 4th Joon, no way. Hope that helps :wink:

VC2P myself. I have 3 Joon but only one maxed so far. I use the second a lot at 3-70, also Malosi at 3-70 (once I hit 48 on POV Malosi is going max). I used to joke my yellow mono was going to be Joon - Viv - Joon - Viv - Joon. Now one of the Joons will be Malosi :laughing:
