I decided to draft a F2P-ish roster for myself (which, in itself, was actually really fun and exciting), and I’m now going to raid with only those heroes for…probably about a month. I will still use everyone I have for titans, wars, and tournaments.
To do this I organized all my heroes based on which gate I obtained them from, kept anyone from a training camp (the four stars, Isarnia, Kadilen, Joon, and Quintus), then tried to narrow the rest down in proportion (i.e., if my roster was 20% Atlantis heroes before I tried to keep that - not quite accurate since you can get a non-Atlantis hero from the Atlantis gate). I then threw back the five best heroes (and it was truly painful to un-summon Gravemaker) for fun / the challenge. Here’s what I was left with (I’ll skip listing duplicates and all TC20 four star heroes for readability).
Does it look like an average F2P roster given 1.5 years of play? If not, I will adjust it.
Looking this over, if this had been how my roster developed I would have maxed Richard, Kadilen, and probably Thoth-Amun, and they all would likely have emblems. As is, TA is at 1.1 and the other two are at 3.70. That may render all of them useless. Similarly, Valeria, Triton, and Hansel would all possibly have emblems, but as is do not and I’m not sure I’ll be able to use them either. And I’m not going to reshuffle emblems for this experiment due to the food/iron costs.
Partly to compensate for that, and because of the impossibility of undoing a costume stats bonus, I decided to be generous in this area and allow them all. This feels fine to me, as I don’t have any five star costumes, meaning we’re talking about Boldtusk, Melendor, Rigard, Sonya, and possibly Tiburtus here.
My biggest takeaway is that blue tanks are going to be much much harder for me. I drafted both Mother North and Evelyn but threw them both back. And I didn’t pull Buddy. Maybe there’s a role for Hansel there.
Both Kunchen and Guinevere are going to be substantially harder, as Victor was another drafted hero I threw back (if anyone at home is counting, the fifth was Ariel - I realized that not enough would change unless I let these cornerstone heroes go).
I’ve literally never beaten Telluria anyway, so nothing should change there.
