Hello, I apologise becasuse this will be a long post. I’ll try to hide the less relevant information, and thanks in advance to those reading this thread.
First, I'll explain what kind of player I am.
I am a middle platinum, level 43 player, about 2000 cups and with roughly a 3800 max TP. My alliance fights 8-9 titans (mostly 9) and we use purple tank in war. I’m a pure F2P player, too.
Right now, I am debating wether to ascend Sabina or not, I’m building my first 5☆ team and I’m considering my general roster strategy in the middle and long term game. So my questions are three, but each has many factors to be considered:
1 Should I ascen Sabina?
2 What would be the best 5☆ (rainbow) team to ascend, with my current heroes.
3 How do you plan your roster, when you got 3 3☆ rainbow teams (and some more) and almos 3 4☆ rainbow teams?
About ascending Sabina
Reasons to ascend her.
a) Improve my purple stak with a dispeller.
My purple stak: Ursena 4/80 +6 (so no emblems for Sabina), costume Ridgard 4/70 +16, Tib 4/70 and Proteus 4/70; plus Merlin, Gafar and the said Sabina at 3/60.
b) Have a 6th healer for war.
My current maxed healers are: costume Ridgard +16, costume Bold +14, Kashreek 4/70, Melendor 4/70 and Kiril at 4/51 and going up.
Reasons not to ascend her.
a) Heavy competition for compasses and trap tools.
Gafar 3/60, Merlin 3/60, second Tib slightly ascended and untouched Boomer, Stonecleave, second Ridgar and second Proteus. Also 5☆: Grimble 2/17 and untouched Domitia and Obakan.
b) She is very frail. I already got Melendor, and he dies a lot on my.
Also, I must consider:
I already have dispell.
Maxed Caedmon, Sonya and Melendor.
My other healer options
4☆ second Bold and second Ridgard. 5☆ Puss in boots and Anzogh.
About my first 5☆ rainbow team.
Ursena is my tank. She is already maxed and +6. My other purples are Grimble, Domitia and Obakan, but they should wait.
Yellow: either Drake or Neith. Neith seems bad considered, but is used by top deffense teams. I don’t know.
Red: Anzogh, Puss in boots and Marjana. Anzogh and Puss are healers, but not top healers, and if I was ever going to consider a red tank, they are competing with this:
Green: 6 tonics, no heroes.
About planning my roster.
I got enough 3☆ and 4☆ to at least 3 stak in each colour, but on yellow 4☆ (I only have Wu, but I’m not waiting, given my weird luck: 4 TC20 5☆, 2 HOTM, 2 past HOTM, 1 Atlantis 5☆, 1 event 5☆… not even a Hu Tao?! )
So, I decided to work on my first 5☆ rainbow team, aiming to improve my deffense war team, and my general roster. I got 3 tomes, 3 blades and I’m more or less close on the rest: 6 tonics, 6 scopes, 5 rings, 3 darts (and hey, 2 tabards after Ursena ). But… what after that?
I was thinking that, as I would have to wait a lot to ascen a second or third set of 5☆ (wait for the materials and the heroes), I should bring little by little dupe 4☆ to 3/60 and ascend some interesting 3☆, but that from now on I should be much more picky with the 4☆ I fully ascend. But I don’t find many feedback in the forum about this specific topic, so what are your thoughs?
Well, I think this cover the main issues, many thanks for readin (partially or the whole thingh) and good gaming.
