I searched the forums for similar topics Grimm vs. Sonya, but found the other players asking didn’t go into that much detail on their context. Was hoping for some help from the collective wisdom here
For Blues, I already have Kiril and Triton maxed/emblemed; Lepus on the way (4/53 and rising fast), and Aegir at 3/70 (I have 1/6 Scopes). I also have Boril and Agwe sitting at 1/1.
In terms of similar skills, among my 4s and 5s I also have Gormek (maxed) only among the pulverizers; and Sabina (maxed) and Seshat (1/46 but being leveled fast) as dispellers.
Could you help me decide the order to max/ascend my 4* Blues, while waiting for the 5 other Scopes I need to ascend Aegir? I’ve already decided that Grimm and Sonya are the top 2. Boril will be 3rd, and Agwe only if I have no other Blue projects. Aegir of course gets ascended as soon as the Scopes come in.
I’m leaning towards Sonya (1/1 now) vs. Grimm (3/60 now). My logic:
Raid Offense - Grimm’s defense down is nice to have, but I feel a dispel is more necessary (i.e. if I have a bad board, lacking a dispeller is harder to recover from). I often have trouble with riposters; and having a non-Purple dispeller should help especially against all the buffing heroes out there. I usually do 3-2 with a mix of Purples and Blues: Proteus, Lepus, Kiril/Aeron, Triton, Sabina as needed - Seshat, Sonya, Grimm and Aegir will all eventually fit nicely here. But I feel Sonya will make a more immediate impact than Grimm will.
War Offense - same reasoning as above
Raid Defense - N/A, Kiril is still my blue of choice and Aegir will be priority when I do max him.
War Defense - same as above
Titans - Grimm of course, I don’t see myself bringing in Sonya for Titans even with mono Blue (I run Kiril - Grimm - Triton - Aegir - Lepus). However, my alliance is only at 4* Titans now though, and Grimm does the job well at 3/60. Yes, his tile damage can increase, but I bring him along more for the defense debuff. I feel like I can wait to ascend Grimm. For neutral color Titans, I run Gormek + Lance and 3 of the strong color (unless I go mono Red), and use bear banners.
World Map - I’ve already finished Atlantis Hard mode, so not a consideration
Quests - it’s really only the Class Quests where I feel this choice will make a difference. I think Grimm has the edge here, as he will be useful in Trials of Strength and Survival (strong against the Red bosses), whereas Sonya’s trials tend to have a lot of Green enemies.
Overall though, I feel like Sonya will be more immediately useful. But what does everyone think?
Also sharing the rest of my roster for added info.
