I’m going to do my best to reply to all of your questions as I read them, and in order (so I apologize if this gets confusing, a lot to read, or jumbled- I’ll do my best to make it legible lol):
First off, I have to say you’re doing very well already
I understand the feeling of being short on compasses, those are what elude me too (along with Damascus Blades, and for some reason tall boots lol). Unless you have a for sure person you want to ascend, I’d stick to filling out a good rainbow team first (with the next few compasses you get).
Azar will be helpful for cutting mana, although, unless you’re OCD, like me, and eventually want a full collection of 3*, I think it’s safe to say you can get rid of Jaha- but I’d only do so after you have a solid 30+ heroes for war. Depending on if you do pulls or run TC13 or 20, you never know when you’ll get another hero needed to replace him. I like to hold onto heroes for a bit, and if I realize I will never use them or level them, I’ll feed them away. Nashgar is a lot better than Jaha but with Jaha it’s something different- so completely up to you. If you’re running out of space, you could eat them, or else it’s fairly cheap to expand your hero capacity (& I highly recommend it). Though, if you are stingy, then I’d go ahead and eat Jaha or second Nashgar- personally I think one is enough, unless you’re looking to compete in rare eventually, then a second might help. He’s one of the best attacking 3*, so a dupe might be better than one Jaha.
Since you have Namahage, and will have Hawkmoon leveled, I would do a second BT then. I’m sorry I didn’t list specifics with dupes, but that’s about when I’d level second BT (unless you pull Gormek or Wilbur- then I’d do them first).
Kiril is amazing, but Grimm will be a staple on your team for a very long time. Kiril should definitely come second though, that buff is great.
& Honestly, Agwe sucks but I have a hard time saying someone should eat any of their last copies of any 4* or 5* because of rarity, and most have at least some purpose. Agwe is one you could probably eat and not regret it, but idk to me it’s too risky. Especially if you don’t do many pulls. He’ll be stronger than some of your 3* at 3/60, so he might have a place in war.
I would get Ulmer for sure leveled before starting a second Gato, but if you don’t value spirit link all that much- you could do a second before Gunnar.
Yeah, with those questionable 5*, I would make the decision personally after playing around with them on 1-8-7 or raiding and see if I like em or they fit with what I’m looking for. If not, I’d wait for someone better.
If you’re not worried about a tank, you could get those 3* in the works since the 3* greens are some of the best, and there is so many of them! Plus, there’s no reflect green event [yet] so they can be used in all of them safely. You can work on Berden first if you’d like. I just figured with Mnesseus leveled, and Hawkmoon on the way, you were in more need of a buffer (Brienne) then Belith since she heals and dispels, then Berden for another solid green hit. As long as you get them all leveled, you should be good.
Little John will help when stacking green for Titans and for war, so definitely deserving of food.
I understand your love for Kadilen; she was my first 5*, and helped me survive quite a lot of nasty specials back in the day. I’ll sometimes bring her out for war; she’s nice paired with Isarnia (if you pull her). Other than that though, haven’t found too much use for her, but I get it.
Yellow is my weak spot too, it’s okay though, I would assume Wu will come to you soon (at least, I sure hope so). Li can be awesome during war, controlling everyone’s mana. I do like her too. Hu Tao, yeah idk. The blind is nice, but that’s about it. There’s just not enough good outta that slow speed [for him].
Honestly, I don’t care much for dupe 3* to be honest, but then again I’m just looking to complete the beginner tier, not compete in it. Plus, I have plenty of heroes for war so I never use my 3* for that. Those are the only two reasons I see to keep any dupe 3*. Unless they’re really awesome or you love them or something. I mean, Melia is one of the two characters that raises crit for the entire team, so she does have her thing. Depends on how much you value that, and use it.
As for second bane, I prefer variety so that’s why I suggested Gan Ju, plus Gan cuts mana like Azar so that can be useful. If you like Bane more, then a second Bane would work. I think he’s technically considered stronger anyway. You’ll want over six heroes per color for war, unless you don’t participate in that. Or did you mean 3*? Well, I’d rather keep one Gan Ju for the mana cut, one Kailani and one Melia, the rest could be Bane though. Bane is really awesome.
Yeah, Leonidas is better than given credit, but still not worth the mats (in my opinion). Lots of other better yellow 5* out there.
Rigard is the best 4* healer in the game. Cleansing is such a rare skill, so definitely why he deserves to get leveled. Plus, 42% is huge!
Ameonna isn’t someone I would’ve suggested you leveled before nearly anyone else except maybe Cyprian, because she seems very niche, but on Titans she should be pretty fabulous actually.
& No worries, I didn’t keep my first Gill-Ra til today; always hated looking at her, so I always had to feed her away immediately lol. Though, she does have a place on a 3* team as the only 3* cleanser for all allies.
And no apologies necessary! I type a lot too (clearly) so I understand the feeling personally. I hope this all helped and wasn’t too confusing. I typed up this whole thing while outside; my fingers are cold so they’re moving slower, so there might be a few typos in this lol. Hopefully it makes sense. & You’re very welcome, I’m always happy to help. If you ever have any questions, please feel free to ask, or come find me on here again. I usually check in everyday, so I’ll do my best to help out when I can Good luck and happy leveling
