I already have 23 mana troops on her. Should I give her the mana bonus or the shield bonus? Will she be any faster with the mana bonus?
Yes, if you give her the class bonus (2%), then along with the level 23 mana troop (13%) she will be charging up with 7 tiles instead of 8.
Yes… Always yes
Biggest benefit is that the mana bonus reduces the level of the Mana Troop needed…
As @ThePirateKing said, it reduces it by 2%. Then you ONLY need a Level 23 troop not the Lvl 28 one you normally would.
Will typically take 3 matches to charge either way
Matches are normally 3 tiles each
Ghosting you’ll still have to combo at least 4 tiles since half of 7 is 3.5 and we cant do half a tile.
So for me i went with the stat increases instead of the mana node. Especially since i plan on maxing my mana troops anyways so figured I’d rather spend the resources once rather than spend them now and later use a reset emblem to re emblem them again
Where mana boost makes the most difference is very fast and average mana heroes as it decreases the # of matches typically needed to fill mana.
Average mana decreases from 4 matches(10 tiles) to 3 matches(9 tiles)
Very fast decreases from 7 tiles(3 matches) to 6 tiles(2 matches) or 3 tiles ghosted(1 match)
Perfect explanation thank you!
