So, in light of this Telluria mess, I’m considering a different strategy for war defense. Our alliance uses purple tanks and I had been thinking I could still use the GTV combo and do better than I could with a purple tank. But with all this nerfing I’m thinking outside the box.
Clarissa is a strong potential hero for paladin emblems because her toughness can see that she fires many times and she’ll punish the color that she is weak to. Plus, even when going the defense route she will pick up like 4 attack nodes to bolster her DOT while keeping her tanky.
Still with me? Good. I also wanted to try and work Ursena into my defense to benefit from Clarissa’s element link, and because she’s badass on defense. I didn’t want her at flank though because she’d be too vulnerable next to another purple. However, average speed heroes on the wing can be too slow to contribute much unless the match is drawn out.
Enter Brynhild. Brynhild flanking between the 2 would boost mana to make Ursena a threat on the wing, would let at least part of my team heal, which is good for war defense, and her special skill defense stacks with Clarissa’s link for a whopping +104% defense against special skills, which is totally undispellable. Not to mention that Brynhild is a rogue, which just gives even more longevity. I would like have emblems on all of these heroes.
Other flank would be Gravemaker with either Finley or Vela as the opposite wing. Or perhaps even Jabberwock, but 3 purples, despite the link would feel like tempting fate against a yellow attack team.
What’re your thoughts?
I like the idea of giving emblems to Clarissa as it’d make her a lot more fun on offense too.
