Thanks all, I appreciate the feedback.
I will check out that post @yelnats_24. I saw it previously but was keying in on other parts at the time.
I have Buddy, he’s how I drop D with green. Not an elemental drop, but better than no drop. Landing Almur would make my day, I got his weird, less helpful sister, Fura, instead.
Nice 4* list @Lexxtarc! You were fortunate with some good luck with Hansel, Brynhild, and Almur. I have been chasing Hansel for 3 years now. Funny coincidence, instead I got his sister, Gretel, too! Admittedly Gretel is great IMO. Much more useful than Fura. That’s a whole other topic though.
I have Caedmon at +20 w/ CB. He is a real monster. Cleansing heroes are hard to come by compared to dispellers.
That’s cool. If they’re not on your D team did you go full A value? A path increases Elkanen’s self heal I guess. Kadilen is a toss up for path. I guess go hit harder ideally after dropping D?
Thanks @pb9921 @Obsidian @Murphy. Low diamond/very high platinum is where I hang out. I do run across him from time to time on D, but he is almost always a wing. If the rest of the raid is a real brawl and I am beat up having that self healing fast mana hero in the corner can be frustrating. Same concept of use with field aid wars. Self heal plus field aid can be infuriating with later, less than ideal teams.
Overall with Kadilen it seems tough. She probably hits hard enough for provinces, but no so much against diamond raid opponents? Perhaps emblems help here?
Her D boost is just so easily dispelled by attackers. There are both so many dispellers as well as AI won’t time it if she is on D. The saving grace here would be if she tanks and the opponent brings red, there are not a great deal of red dispellers … at least easily attainable ones. Thinking about it I rarely see her in D teams. I see Elkanen much more.
I had been brining her on elite enemy stages of S3. That is helpful, but somewhat niche. Maybe her a Little John. You delay with LJ and protect with Kadilen?
She is probably my 5th green, but since I typically 3-2 she gets left out. I think I just need to remember to try her more. Worst thing that happens is I lose a raid or two or something
Elkanen can be effective at D I think. Not so much tanking, but that darn flank when the fights been tough.
Given I didn’t really have him I haven’t thought about his effectiveness on offense. Kadilen is seemingly more effective and have already struggled finding her a home to date. Maybe in tougher province levels he is good because he can self heal if a healer isn’t ready?
He will be welcome in my emblem quest teams though. From what I recall I need hitters badly in cleric trials.
Thanks again all! All input welcome!
Good luck out there!
