What’s the worst team, that’s an interesting thing to think about, great topic.
Elena - sorry Elena, I like you, but you are far too squishy… and we’ll set you on the edge so you can only give 1 neighbor reflect, should you get lucky enough to fire.
Victor - not that strong defensively, and… even as a freakin’ boss your damage is not causing much worry. Your healing steal, well… you can suck it (pun totally intended ).
Magni - you are a great hero, I use you a lot. You get to be tank because you are not good at that, a total glass cannon, but they better kill you quick or the game might change a little in your favor…
Rana - you are not bad, but my nomination because you’re not doing enough damage to kill, and your defense is not particularly strong either. I’m not sure there’s any truly horrible yellow 5*… Guardian Owl gets a bad wrap, but he has strong defensive stats, and his special, once it does fire (ok, that’ll take 1000 years), is nothing to play with and seems particularly good defensively. Imagine him as tank with a high level mana boosting troop, I would think twice.
Elkanen - champion of “meh” amongst 5* . But an honorable mention for Yunan.
To be honest, I don’t think there’s any 5* or any hero in general that doesn’t have any value at all (although, Vlad… ). 5* are still 5*… I don’t think you can come so easily with a 3* team and beat an all 5* team, even the (relatively) bad ones, the basic attack/defense stats are just too far apart. A good 4* team might have a chance.
Some of you who have mentioned Kadilen… I must strongly object. She was my first green 5*, and got maxed, and now… she is one of the heroes I use all the time, on defense and offense. While her damage in itself isn’t that high… she does hit all enemies FAST, which is not common. It adds up with repeated hits. And especially if you team her up with Isarnia or Evelyn, her damage is going to be very far from trivial. But her main selling point is the +74% defense against specials… this will keep your heroes alive where they would otherwise die. And, well… having alive heroes matters a lot, on offense and defense both. To my surprise she even makes a very decent tank (well, it helps in my case that she’s flanked by defense boosting Magni and Khagan), probably because she will quickly take the sting out of the attacker’s specials.
Of course she does stand in the shadow of the other green 5* fast all-hitter, Zeline… if given the choice between them, yeah of course I’d go with Zeline over Kadilen. But Zeline is a hard to get HotM, and Kadilen can be had by anyone from TC20 or regular summons. Even if you have Zeline, I think there’s still room for Kadilen also. Or better yet, how about Evelyn, Zeline and Kadilen together… blue opponents will shake in their boots.
