I am tracking all of my raids in the month of August so that the usage rates for my heroes can guide my emblem decisions. One trend I can already plainly see: I’m dodging Guinevere tanks. I have fought 92 raids so far this month, and only TWO have been against Guinevere. Even accounting for a lesser share of tank duty post-emblems, that’s ridiculous. I don’t re-roll, but I allow myself to choose my current matchup or a revenge; I must be declining to fight her in many circumstances.
Anecdotally, I know I struggle against her. I think it is time for me to address this weakness in my roster. Help me out?
Normal Attack vs. Guinevere
Mother North +6
Proteus +17 (def/HP)
Varying hero depending on flank, with most likely being Buddy +14 or Mitsuko +7
Proteus (a second one, at +0)
Other four star purples that are likely not relevant (e.g., Cyprian, Merlin, etc.)
I’m going to be very reluctant to pull Mother North, but it’s worth mentioning a few other heroes I have in case anyone wants to argue for a 3/2 stack that doesn’t involve her. Assume I have all classic four star heroes, as well as Gravemaker, Frida, Aegir, Evelyn, Onatel, and Leonidas. Is there a case for a 3/2 purple red with GM and Mitsuko (N.B. no healer in this configuration)?
A duplicate of any hero I already have (including Seshat!) or Thoth, if that will help. I do NOT have anyone else. There’s a small chance I draw Panther in a few days, but let’s assume this is what we’re working with. Should I attempt to attack with double Seshat?
Should I emblem Rigard and put him in the lineup? For me, the biggest problem with that is that Mother North has claimed most of my Cleric emblems, and she is vital to my success in basically every raid, map, war, defense, etc. I don’t need to track my raids to report her usage rate: it’s 100%.
