A use for ‘bad’ heros

I recently got Vlad and looking at his special I was disappointed. I mean come on… maxed out he does 65 damage over 5 turns. Ok he can steal 61% of any healing applied to the target for 3 turns but would I put him in over any of the other 3* I have, I dont think so.

So I was thinking with all the heros that are considered bad and rubbish in what hypothetical situation would they actually be a good hero?

I can’t really defend Vlad, but I would check out the Guardian Chameleon threads for ideas on how a Hero ranked “C” on Anchor’s Guide can be a force of destruction. In short:

  1. Teamed with Tarlak, they are arguably the most destructive pairing in the game.
  2. Taking the same pair against a green (13*) Titan can reliably net you 100K+ hits (so long as you bring a couple mana pots and scrolls of alteration).
  3. Even alone, he works better than most people give him credit for. The color change mechanic can be used strategically; and even if he changes an opposing hero’s color from “weak against” to “strong against”, the crit chance buff often neutralizes that drawback.

But Vlad’s DOT stacks up to 10 times, doesn’t it?

I’ve got 4 I plan to level up for fun in 3* no-holy raid tournaments.

Hmmm… yeah, not sure I can really justify Vlad.

I have found a very good use for Obakan at least. He is my purple team’s designated kamikaze riposter.

Obakan: “Alright man, I’m ready for war!!! What do you want me to do?”

Me: “Go in and try to take out their yellow guy.”

Obakan: “Cool! Yeah, I think I can do that! Then what next?”

Me: “Oh, nothing next. After that you can just stand there and look pretty while awaiting further instructions.”

Obakan: “Alright! I think I can handle tha–”

Ouch. :confounded: Well, that’s the end of Obi. R.I.P. my friend. Congrats on taking that sniper down with you, though! :+1:

Actually plays well into my colored strike strategies.

Red team - shock and awe, burn them with fire!!!
Blue team - disrupt and weaken the enemy!
Green team - try to stay alive long enough to take the opponents out one by one!
Yellow team - steal their mana! Blind them! Throw some tiles! Rinse and repeat!

And now, for something completely different:

Purple team strategy - mostly just stand there trying to keep yourself alive while your opponent successfully manages to kill themselves :laughing:

Someday, I fully plan to put up a defense team out of just my worst and most hated heroes. I’m thinking something like Captain of Daimonds, Neith, Horghall, Mok-Arr, Costume-Caedmon. Then I’ll go to my watchtower to watch them get completely destroyed over and over again by other players. Mwahahahaha!!! :smiling_imp: :smiling_imp: :smiling_imp:

I found a use for Vlad when I was starting out and had a weak bench… he won my alliance a war once :stuck_out_tongue:

but now… I only use him for fun while farming, sometimes.

i guess if I’m going to try to apply a lesson to it, it’s that - make do with what you have, and judge for yourself if a hero is worth leveling based on your roster, game progress, spending habits, etc.

Mok-Arr is actually a fine hero on offense…
