I think I have an understanding of the math involved in the mana calculation, and I have a particular hero in mind (Hansel) that I’d like someday to get down to 9 tiles.
I believe this means I need 11.1% mana boost. With emblems, +19 talent gives a 2% boost. Lvl 17 mana troop gives 11%, so the talent will (someday) let me drop Hansel to 9 tiles at Lvl 17 troop instead of Lvl 23.
Are your with me so far? Good!
Here’s my issue: I have the OTHER 4* Green troop, NOT the mana troop. Up to now, I’ve just been leveling up what the game gave me, so that troop is Lvl 11.
The question then becomes: Should I just keep leveling that, and just enjoy the benefits of a more and more powerful 4* Green troop, even if I hope to get and level the mana troop someday? Or would it be wise to stop leveling this one and save all my green troop feeders… for a day that hopefully will come, but who knows? RNG might never give me that troop.
What do you think? Bird in the hand, and such?
