OK, I know that I’m going to waste a ton of XP, so let’s get that out of the way first thing. But I’ve finally laid it out and I can’t see that I have use for my maxed Graymane any longer. To wit:
By color: he is my second worst of eight blue heroes, and that’s just because I haven’t finished leveling Gunnar yet. He will be the worst, by power, when Gunnar is maxed.
By class: he is the worst of my five unique sorcerers by power. I also have a duplicate Sabina unleveled in this class. For the trials of mysticism, I use my best three sorcerers plus Onatel and Ulmer. For the trials of shadows, I use my best three sorcerers plus Kelile and Danzaburo. I don’t have a blue hero in the trials of shadows, but I’d have to sit Sabina or Ameonna for Graymane to run a rainbow team.
For war: he is my 28th best hero by power, but he’ll be passed by Gunnar and Poseidon as soon as today. I also plan to level Tyrum, Balthazar, Mnesseus, Domitia, and a second Bane that will all be more powerful than him relatively soon.
For rare events: Of my rare blue heroes, he is fifth of six, until I finish leveling Gunnar. Then, he will be dead last.
For specials: His special doesn’t do anything that can’t be replicated by someone else. It doesn’t hit as hard as a sniper, nor does it heal as much as a healer. And it really isn’t close on either account.
Have I missed any potential uses? As F2P, I’d like to avoid having to spend gems on roster spots a little longer, and it seems like Graymane is taking up one that I could free up without any real impact on my team. Your feedback is appreciated.
