I’m about to get my sixth Scope from finishing Atlantis hard, and I was originally planning to ascend Aegir over Lepus. But I’ve been browsing the forums and can see a case for either.
Before this I was dead set on improving my raid defense, but I can see how Lepus is useful on raid offense, wars and Titans. World Map too, but then I’m already going to finish Atlantis hard, so…
In terms of these game aspects:
Titans/ War - I am in a 4-person alliance, we win probably 80% of our Wars, and are now consistently taking on 4-star Titans.
Raids - on offense I can climb to Diamond, but my defense only lets me stay in high platinum. I fluctuate between 2200-2500 cups.
My roster (maxed/emblemed unless specified):
- 5* - Aeron (3/70)
- 2nd Proteus (3/60)
- 5* - Inari (3/70, but will ascend after Sand Empire as I am getting my 5th and 6th darts from Atlantis and from Sand Empire)
- 4* - Li Xiu
- 2nd Gormek (3/60)
- Aegir (3/70)
- M. Lepus (3/70)
- Grimm (3/56, will take up to 3/70)
- Boril (1/1)
- Agwe (1/1)
- Margaret (4/55, will max out and emblem)
- Gregorion (1/1, I pulled him after ascending Margaret…)
- Jack O’Hare
- Gobbler (1/1)
- Gadeirus (1/1)
- Kashhrek (1/1)
Current defense is all maxed/emblemed 4s (Kiril - Gormek - Li Xiu - Proteus - Jack O’Hare). Planning to shake it up once I ascend/max my first few 5s.
On offense, I use Lepus much more often than Aegir because Lepus hits much harder (and I have many other defensive/support heroes). I often use a 3-2 stack: Proteus, Aeron, Lepus, Kiril, Triton. Great synergy here: Aeron prevents Lepus’ defense debuff, Kiril boosts Lepus’ (And Triton’s) attack, Triton boosts healing, Triton + Proteus have a family bonus. Kiril/Lepus/Triton firing together often kills my target, while Proteus stalls 3 other heroes. If I really need a dispeller I swap Sabina in for either Kiril or Triton.
Aegir is definitely better for raid defense. But how important is raid defense anyway? If I can make up for the lost cups with a better offense (maxed Lepus over maxed Aegir), does it matter if my defense keeps letting me fall back into Platinum?
If I decide Lepus over Aegir, how can I reshuffle my raid defense? I want to use Inari and Margaret as they are my only other maxed (or soon to be) 5*s, but they work better with Aegir than with Lepus. For that matter, Lepus doesn’t work on raid defense, but if I ascend him I would like to use him.
Which would work better then?
Gormek - Aeron - Aegir - Margaret - Inari
Gormek - Margaret - Aeron - Lepus - Inari ?
For Titans, would it be more useful to have a max Aegir or a max Lepus? Considering my other blues include emblemed Kiril and Triton, and a 3/60 Grimm
For Wars, who would be generally more useful? Aegir or Lepus?
Thanks in advance…!
