I can only comment on the two I have (although my Quintus +13 keeps desperately hoping for a costume ). I am F2P and so a lot of these are compared to vanillas.
He is currently stuck at 3:70. Unfortunately for him my last set of scopes went to Glenda, which I do not regret. He is next over Thorne and I am excited for him. He is my sole 5* healer, although my c-Melendor +20 is basically a 5*. Love me some fake Gandalf.
As a F2P, cleansers are tough to come by. Dispel is relatively common. If Glenda didn’t cleanse Raff would have gotten the scopes instead.
His heal is massive and so are his HP and D stats. He is the closest you can get to overheal without overhealing in the game. Overhealers are not easy to get. I have fought him in raids when he is emblemed as well and if you don’t stack green killing him with neutral colors, or worse yet weak, is a pain. If you launch your specials, don’t kill him, and he fires his special you’re back to square one because you burned your specials and his 50% heal to a massive HP stat is maddening. That’s not factoring subsequent healing to living allies. Half the time his massive HoT is larger than the tile damage you can cause in a move so the tides of battle can turn quickly.
I am most excited to use him in PvE. Until I got Gullinbursti (overheal is game changing) my best healer was c-Melendor, who is a beast. Raff is better than Melendor even if he doesn’t boost D. Some people say Raff needs revive too, but he would be OP then IMO. Stacked with his heal he would revive and have a hero at full health in no time.
Big fan even at 3:70 and can’t wait for 5 more scopes. I am “almost” done with S3 normal (Province 31), but am back at province 10 hard. I foresee Raff playing a bit part in S3 hard for me.
Plus, all the A drops in the world won’t help you with his immunity. You need to keep taking that punishment .
I haven’t started leveling her, but she is next and going to max. My big question will be if I reset my Elkanen +16. I have time to decide.
Her mana boost is great. Her base special damage is solid too. I get not liking the variable options, but I used Danzaburo for a while so I don’t mind it. Plus, all her are beneficial. Danzaburo has that third neutral option of nothing happening. I only count bad as damage to your own hero or team.
I would still combine her on a team with Tibs. If you get option 1, hold fire on Tibs. This prolongs how long the enemy D is down as a “worst case” by firing him right after. If you get the A drop, Tibs stacks. If you get the lesser D drop then Tibs overrides. You also increase Tibs override damage because their D is slightly dropped already.
All in all a very solid hero I think . Very happy to have pulled her.
Good luck out there!
