It is perhaps the saddest day ever in Ivy’s Empire, as Caedmon hangs up his halberd for the last time.
I made the change today, though I could have made it slightly sooner. With his higher percentage in his special skill and attack down, Kingston was a more potent follow up to Evelyn than Caedmon even when his attack stat was a tad lower. But I have a great deal of affection for Caedmon. You can keep the emblems, cherished Druid!
In my last 3,224 raids, Caedmon fought in a whopping ~30% of them! He went 908-45, a staggering win rate of 95.3%. Notably, that’s higher than my win rate for the whole sample, which was 94.2%.
I am working on a metric that calculates the value of each hero on my roster, accounting for their contributions in raids and on titans. Basically, pretty much no matter the way I score it, it tells me my most valuable hero is Wu Kong, followed by a handful of top tier five stars, and then Caedmon. He is ~6th of the 38 heroes I assigned value to.
And in truth I think this undersells him slightly, because at the start of my raid tracking I was splitting green 3tack duty between Caedmon and Buddy. I quickly saw Caedmon was as good as or better than Buddy - if I add that part of Buddy’s value to Caedmon, he passes Frida in value under most scoring rubrics. But more importantly, this allowed me to strip Buddy of emblems and shift those to Evelyn and Seshat. So Caedmon strengthened both my green AND purple 3tacks - a truly remarkable achievement.
