So I was lucky enough to get these two during the last summon portal, and I had two ideas I’d like some opinions on.
#1: emblem pathing Richard
So since my Richard is still a babe at +7, it’s not too onerous to steer his talent tree in a different direction. My problem is that Paladin and Barbarian are almost mutually exclusive; the optimal path for one class is the suboptimal for the other. Paladin Richard, especially with emblems and costume bonus, is quite the powerhouse… but barbarian Richard is just straight better, hand waving how weak wound is as a talent and all other things being equal.
I’m leaning towards keeping Richard as Paladin path because my blue stack nowadays is mostly Magni and Viking Sonya with a +20 Kiril thrown in, so he doesn’t come out that often. His main job is war tank and occasionally raid tank these days. But I’d like an opinion all the same.
- Go barbarian!
- Stay paladin!
#2: base Lianna
I finally got the sixth tonic to ascend Lianna who has now replaced Peters in my 3tack green and is doing great. I focused on Sailor Lianna since she’d level up faster and… should I even waste any time on base Lianna?
Here’s the thing: Seshat has already called dibs on my ranger emblems and is generally a better hero for defense than Lianna. Sailor Lianna is better for offense. And I need more diverse greens to deal with the sea of Boril tanks in alliance wars, and getting base Lianna to 4/80 would take time and not help with that at all.
- Max out base Lianna!
- Eh just leave her. Sailor is fine.
In a similar vein, I’m probably leaving base Melendor where he is because Saruman Melendor is just generally better.
And finally just to pester @zephyr1… are you still focusing on embleming 4* heroes? I’m finding I need to focus on my 5* due to all the 4300+ TP defenses I keep crashing into. Your strategy was of great help early on, and I’m curious to hear if anything has changed.
Thanks for your time, and hoping to hear some great feedback!
