As we use purple tanks for VF war my plan is to use Quintus there ( as good as Seshat is she isn’t really doing the job there) and with the amount of minion makers around Uraeus will see lots of action in attack.
Do I strip LotL down and redistribute evenly ( for example I don’t have a high enough troop for the mana node 20 to be having much effect?
I think everyone would be around 10 nodes that way or do I just keep them all on pond girl and build up more for the others eventually?
I’d have a hard time embleming Quintus just to use for very fast wars.
Similar logic for Uraeus. I have him with 18 emblems and I wouldn’t say he’s been a difference maker in any minion war when I use him. He has made a slight difference when I face him on defense.
I would love Lady of the Lake. I can’t imagine swapping her for these two.
I think you’ve got solid logic, I just can’t see myself doing it.
I would NOT unemblem LOTL (is that a word?). Other than VF wars, when will you use Quintus?..I gather not very often. LOTL and Uraeus will be used a lot, I’d give the extras to Uraeus because he’ll be a frequent hero in raids. Costume Q is already fairly bulky as a tank in VF wars and tournies. I’d be much more fear full of a emblemless quintus with a 20 emblem LOTL flank.
Okay. In your case, I suggest that you don’t bother to emblem C-Quintus too much specifically for very fast wars.
Why? I have used C-Quintus +20 as tank for very fast wars, and I find his performance there underwhelming. (Equipped with mana 29 troop, and wars at top 100 alliance level for context. He could be considerably better at a less competitive level).
I’ve also found him underwhelming when used as a tank in past very fast raid tournaments.
I’m glad @JGE has a better experience with him though. For me, C Quintus shines on my team against holy titans, due to his high attack stat.
We are mid 200’s and maybe the drop off from top 100 is pretty steep but our Quintus tanks do catch some people out. I think they decide it’s easy pray and go in with the “weakest” team (which is still pretty strong usually, just not A+)
I think the trick is what you flank you him with. Quintus with a LOTL next to him has the potential to be devastating if you can’t get going before she fires.
I would recommend embleming Uraeus with all of your remaining emblems for now. I am going to assume that he will get used in any yellow attack and potentially a few others throughout gameplay. He is a decent sniper and his minion counter is pretty good.
Splitting emblems wont really accomplish that much. A + 6 or 7 Quintus tank vs a 4-80 Quintus tank is not really going to make that much of a difference overall. Not to mention we are talking about 2 wars out of the entire rotation. Why sacrifice emblems for such a small use case?
I would think your Seshat is serviceable enough at tank in the wars where you go purple for now and maybe you will get a better hero that will get more use in the future. We also have no context for what other purples you have. If you said that Quintus was going to be used in your purple stack regularly and also in your defense occasionally, then maybe it would make sense to emblem him now. But I think Uraeus is going to get more use for you.
