Not saying she’s good or anything but counter damage are usually aimed at tiles while you’re on the defensive. If someone dies because they use a spell while counter atk is active, then it’s a calculated death that can help them. Many times unforseen tile cascade on costume Elena just wreck me beyond all recognition. Without costme? Not so much
How about C.Elena in attacking team? AI can’t decide to not target her, because she has a counterattack on her.
Somebody here claimed that C.Elena can reflect damage back and then dodge it. Seems strange to me, but just want to make sure.
I don’t have C.Elena, but I tested this with Jackal, Boril and Scarlett. No damage = no counterattack. I have no idea, why somebody claimed that rogue and reflect work together well, because a hero can dodge and reflect damage at the same time. No, they can’t.
I love her on attack. She is my favorite riposte attacker. I keep Ferent and Azmia for D more. I will put c-Elena next to Lancelot often for the A boost and mana boost. That’s certainly not an exclusive pairing though.
I rarely use her in base form. With emblems the survivability issue is improved.
As she is my first fighter 5* at least for now i will give them emblems, wouldn’t be the best path, as counter, which will rise mostly her health? Also do you really think, that costume is better? I lost many times because of her coming back on field and, like it is written higher, rogue dodges possibly of counter. Thanks for help
About emblems i cannot say what’s the smartest, but i have seen plenty of Att>Hp>Def builds for maximum damage and counter. I have her HP>Def>Att for survivality since she is mostly for pve for me. I’m using the costumed version 95% of the time since in active play i don’t want to count on that revival chance and the counterattack is truly massive! Great help in towers etc., where the opponent hits hard. Also great in all VF situations.
In normal raid attacks, i don’t use her much because of her speed, battles are over for me before she would get to shoot.
In defence i find the costumed more effective aswell… It doesnt need to be a huge cascade, since the tiles make big damage on low defence Elena and the counter attack eats HP away fast.
