I am very close to having Li Xiu maxed, and I am wondering whether to give her emblems, and if so, what path to follow. My monks have been terrible for a long time, which was my main motivation for maxing her in the first place. She will be on both my monk class trials teams and will probably be my third or fourth yellow for wars, behind Poseidon +1, Onatel 3^70, and probably Danza +15. I know she can be a good tank, but with Poseidon firmly entrenched as the yellow on my rainbow defense team already and Boril holding down tank duties until Thorne is ready to take over, I don’t see her having a role there.
Right now, I have 71 unassigned monk emblems and Bane at +20. My other monks (4-star and up) are Wu Kong 1^1 and Leonidas 2^60. Ranvir is next up on my yellow leveling, so Wu will be waiting a while (maybe forever), and Leonidas will not be getting emblems any time soon, as I only have 3 darts, and my next set is probably going to Onatel anyway. So unless I had the spectacular fortune to draw Wilbur in Atlantis (unlikely, as I’ve finished normal and hard, and coins are tough to come by), Li Xiu is about the only place to put them for the foreseeable future. Is she worth it in the role I have described?
Should I reset Bane to get his emblems too? I have 4 reset tokens, but I already have plans to reset Hawkmoon (for Rigard), Valen (for BT/Poseidon), Danza (for Domitia), Sonya (for Thorne), and Gormek (for Azlar) when the appropriate heroes are maxed/no longer useful for class trials. Reset tokens are rare as hen’s teeth, and as F2P, I hate to surrender gems/emblems for a reset.
If I give the emblems to Li Xiu, should I go attack or defense? My gut says attack, since I don’t plan to use her in a tank role, but will the attack boost really make her special that much more effective? So far, I’ve been notably underwhelmed with her mana cut.
