Is Jack useful for anyone who already has costumes for Balthazar and Tyrum?
I only see one situation where Jack is useful: using Jack to apply a Pumpkin Bomb to the tank, and then using Balthazar to finish off the tank causing the Pumpkin Bomb to explode and deal damage to nearby enemies. For me this would only be applicable in challenge events and raid tournaments.
Balthazar and Jack are both Wizards, fast mana, and dark. Jack and costume bonus Balthazar even have similar stats.
I’m trying to come up with a reason to keep Jack and level him, but I’m struggling.
Best I could find in the Beta thread is that he’s a strong 3, but nothing that says if he’s worth it over others.
Yes. Jack is different to Balthazar and Tyrum.
Of course his main purpose would be tournaments.
Why only the tank? Should be as good as on flank.
I even see another synergy. Jack placing the bomb…Bjorn playing the nutcracker…killing the one with the bomb to create some area damge. Shall be a nice combo.
I just don’t see this being useful that often. I only use 3 stars in challenge events and 3 star raid tourneys.
For raid tournaments I’d probably only use purple when it’s a yellow tank. A 3 star yellow tank occurs about once every 15 tourneys (or about once every three months) (math is 3 rarities * five elements. This discounts people not using the strong tank and or any other combinations that would make it more or less likely (such as I wouldn’t use Jack on a very fast tournament)).
For challenge events I’m not sure Jack and the pumpkin bomb is better than Costume Balthazar either. If I’m trying to kill as quickly as possible, the bomb does not come into play much.
If I were a brand new player I’d level Jack because a 3 star with fast mana would be good early on. I’m trying to figure out if he should take up the resources and roster spot. I’m leaning no, but hoping someone convinces me I’m wrong and what I’m undervaluing.
