I’ve been playing for about three months, now. As C2P, I don’t have a great number of 4* heroes available to me and I’ve had to rely on my 2* and 3* heroes for a lot. In pushing through Season 1 and Season 2 content, I discovered that I relied heavily on Mr Sassy Pants to keep my squad alive… and more recently I picked up Kailani who’s Spirit Link has seriously improved my titan hits by granting my piddly 3* heroes a much improved survivability. …she’ll definitely be my first hero to receive talents as a result.
So, with this established… I’ve noticed that Wilbur is the only hero who gives the same kind of +def buff as a 4* or 5* hero. Spirit Link just doesn’t exist outside of the 3* duo…
Khagan gives +def to 3 people, Magni gives +def to all, Kiril only gives +30%…
Viv gives it to everyone, but is also Slow mana.
Basically, once you move past Kailani and Gunnar, you don’t get any big defensive buffs outside of a very select handful of fairly rare heroes (Wilbur, Magni, Vivica).
- How important is it to have a +def hero on your team?
- Do you consider their presence mandatory?
- Do you consider them mandatory for all game modes?
I’m just amazed at how much I relied on Olaf to keep my titan squads alive (3* heroes versus 8* titans), and now that I have Kailani, my hits have become even more powerful. They’ve made such a difference so far that I’m thinking that it may be worth keeping Kailani in the mix until I have a +def upgrade.
