Bera or Clarissa who gets the mats?

I don’t have freya (yet) but I’ve been more intrigued and excited about Bera since I got her.

Who should get the mats?

Don’t have emblems for Bera bc Santa has em. For Clarissa I don’t have a DOT hero and I have paladins ties up only by Gunnar who I’ll strip.

That said I like the meat shield and I don’t have someone that does that for me either and the constant moth bites plus poison DOT has been fun!

In a vacuum I think Bera is more powerful, frankly I can’t believe they’ve released her in her current form, she seems OP to me. That being said I don’t have her and haven’t played against her yet, so I could be wrong

I have Clarissa at 4/80 and use her in my mono purple - her element link especially when combined with Khiona’s makes them tough to kill. So I really like her too, and the Paladin emblem situation you describe helps make her case

I don’t think either is wrong, but if you have a level 11+ mana troop I’d probably say do Clarissa first, six tile charging is awesome. But Bera seems very good to me too. Be happy it’s a hard decision I guess!

In my honest opinion, I would go with Clarissa if you have the emblems for her to get to say +9.
She is good and she is versatile
Whichever hero you choose good luck

I badly wanted Bera but my meagre tenpull wasn’t enough (got Loki so can’t really complain at all!)

Honestly, I can’t see why you’d want to keep emblems on Santa if you maxed Bera… Maybe that’s just me?

Interesting point. I have been enjoying Bera a LOT!! her constant moth bites or stings have been MONEY. I think you’re right, I might just strip Santa =)

Something for you to mull over:

Regardless of which hero you choose, the class skill applies. So… forget about that skill for a moment.

Emblems also increase health/defense/attack in varying degrees based on path.

So… if a hero’s skill does no actual damage, then it makes less sense to choose the attack path.

Tanks benefit from health/def path. And if your war and raid tank are the same…then how many more tanks do you need? I say 0 more… since there is no such thing as a tank on offense.

Utility heroes also benefit from health/def path. And I would consider Bera a utility hero.
However…I view summoners differently:

Here is my 3.7 Bera:

Currently my moths have 230 HP.
And if I spend the resources, tabard, d.blade and tome. For this:

Then the moths will have 273 HP
(they don’t round up…:man_shrugging:t2:). The rest of your skill remains exactly the same!

Then some will argue, “but Bera has more health also and this helps her to survive.” And that’s true! But…
I still don’t find the combination of a moth with 43 more HP and Bera’s increase of stats to be so valuable as to overlook other heroes.
Especially…when a summoner has increased survival anyway through use of the skill.


I have my tank, and for designating emblems further
I tend to lean towards damaging heroes for a more meaningful gain. And Clarissa will most certainly provide that!! Santa?.. he seems slow to me but.
I just have a hard time seeing Bera tank… should I run across it, I have plenty of non summoners, and yellow damage to take

But ultimately, if you enjoy playing her…well then!
No better reason than enjoyment for investment, eh?

My tank right now is either Santa or alfrike. I have sif but don’t have the mats for her but right now in raids I have sif tank and Bera and alfrike flank and the mana boost has helped. My current raid offense TP is 3900 w an unascended sif, Bera at 3/33 alfrike an ascended lady Loki and a fully maxed rigard normal.
Surprisingly at 3900 this team can challenge 4200-4300 ish defense teams w status ailment heroes.

I see that Bera fully ascended doesn’t increase skill. The only thing I do see is her damage increasing to 180. I wonder if emblems will increase that which it should if her attack increases. It’s actually been fun just watching her Moths do damage w the poison being the final kick. Sometimes I even withhold my other specials and ghost a tile just to see the moths do their work!

If you are able to keep firing and or keep her moths alive, Bera DOT will continue endlessly! I just tried this out on a farm and her moth kept
Inflicting damage well past 3 turns and I think it’s bc the card says each hit from the moth. So keep the moth alive and make new ones fast and you’ll have DOT for a long long time. That’s pretty cool!
