Curious to see everyone’s opinion on the best 3* heroes to use emblems on. For us F2P it takes a long time to get 4* and even longer to max them out. I have been playing for 2 ½ months and have Scarlett 3/60, Kelile 3/1 and Kiril 2/33. Wizard emblems would be wasted on Kiril so I used mine on Balthazar. I have 2 emblem resets and I’m sure to have more by the time I have any 4* worth using them on.
Here is my opinion taking into account both talent/special skill synergy but also how the attack, defense, hp boosts could help make particular heroes more playable:
Monk, Resist: I have mine on Bane and don’t think I’ll regret it. It has come in useful several times.
Cleric, Manashield: I haven’t maxed my Kailani yet but she seems like the obvious choice. Between the two spirit linkers having her mana protected seems to synergize much better than Gunnars extra defense. I’ve had Kailani silenced on some of the S2 levels and it can make things more difficult.
Fighter,Revive: Valen is already considered one of the best blue 3*, with additions to attack and defense plus the Revive he is a straight up beast. I have mine on +14 right now (24% Revive), I only need 10 more emblems to get him up to +15 (30% Revive). I have had him comeback from the dead multiple times during a raid/war and win close battles for me.
Wizard,Jinx: Getting to beef up the attack of the hardest hitting 3* and work on his defense along the way. Balthazar is a shoe in
Druid,Companion: I’m going to assume that most people would opt for Brienne in this category (I don’t have her yet) As she is commonly still used on teams of 4* heroes I can see wanting to boost her up. Does anyone think Belith might be another option?
Paladin,Protect: This is a tricky one. As I stated above I personally think it would be a waste to use this on Gunnar. Tyrum already has the best defense of any 3* so this talent coupled with taking every chance to bring up his attack could make him a lot more playable.
Sorcerer,Delay: This talent screams for an attacker who hits all targets so I have to go Jahangir personally.
Ranger,Pierce: This one seems like another gimme, it’s got to be Berden right?
Rogue,Evade: Personally, as I mentioned above, I have Scarlett and am saving my emblems for her once I get that elusive 4th hidden blade. I’m kinda thinking you’ve got to go Carver on this one. He’s annoying, I usually try to take him out ASAP in raids/war. This would just add to that. Could also help with boss levels of quests.
Barbarian,Wound: Nashgar might seems like the obvious choice but I like the idea of making Azar more multi dimensional. On the flip side Nashgar does also have the higher attack stat and since Wound also works on tile damage he may be the better choice.
Just my thoughts and I welcome yours. Please keep the naysaying (emblems on a 3* is a waste of time) to a minimum. Also I purposefully left out any non S1 heroes. Feel free to bring them up in discussion but I thought this might be of help to other newbie F2P players like myself.
May the RNG be with you, always
