This is a problem I faced myself a while back. Both heroes are Super Stars, both can carry you on offense. Seshat mana drain resistance gets a little more hype because of Guin tanks. On defense is tought, Seshat’s passive can make her fire her ult while Kage 6 tile ult can hit enemy teams by round 2/3, making it a pseudo-counter to mana drains.
As for Kage, atm I like him more because I’m not facing 4.7k teams so my combo Kage+Joon is a sure kill on anything. And I also love the fact that the moment you can ghost 3 tiles, Kage transforms into a murder machine: he doesnt even care about 300dmg ults when you know you can setup your tiles for a back to back ult. The dispel first makes any uncomfortable position a breeze, which is the unsong hero of this guy.
Yes, I was refering to Events, when I see players doing 19+ nodes I assume they are End Level Players. So That’s why I told you that, imho using 125 emblems on Kage were a waste compared to how much more they will give you in 2 namehages for Rare Events. Because they will increase your chances for top1000 and the 4* ascension mat.
The emblems before that are not wasted, I’m sorry if the way I phrased my previous post confused you.
The way Seshat is with her passive and her minion self regeneration. You can argue that health emblems and defense emblems on her are not a priority. Sure, they boost the minion but the most important thing is the minion itself and not the possible upgrades on it. So that minion alone can be count as Health/defense nodes which makes it so that you can invest your ranger emblems on another sniper because they all have a lot less survivavility than Seshat.
