I think it is easy to always think about upgrade to a stronger hero or troop for the next best thing.
My iD for the next level troop, is too add a bit more tactical play for in the game with the 5* troops.
In general the build up of a troop is now max. 79% total.
… Attack, and defense with an added developer choise of healing bonus, critical, health or mana bonus.
In your all New 5* troops, the max strength upgarde wil be 85% total (slightly more)
Butt you will be free to choose 4 of the 6 possible upgrade within your troop, and their strenth.
For example: You want your troop to combinewith a hero with a strong defense and slow mana.
Then you can set your troop to add a low defense and a max of mana upgrade.
This way you can tweak a special set of hero’s and a 5* troop to your own settings.
This way your setup of hero’s and troop will become a more tactical play
And a hero who wont be used now, can be suprisingly strong with a 5* troop.
Total strenth of the 5* troop is 85% and choose 4 of the 6 upgrade’s part to add
And a max setting for each part: ataack 30%, defense 30%, healing 20%, critical 20%, mana 20% and health 20%
Let me know what you think?
