Lianna vs. Atomos - existential dread

I come to you dear board members, with my hat in my hand, begging for your help. My option paralysis has become so bad it’s morphed into existential dread that I’ll make the wrong decision. Internal talk never does any good in situations like this so I turn to you for discourse.

Green has forever been my weakest color, 20+ months into playing, I spend willy nilly when my eBay has a windfall and this is it for my green roster.

Here’s my thoughts… Peters in the corner will dodge once emblemed more, so healing doesn’t take precedence on him - that’s his spot and he ain’t moving. Atomos will self-rez so who cares about healing him. Lianna has a costume carrot dangling out there (I put no stock into getting this however) and has the ability to one shot when needed.

Are there synergies I’m not seeing? Should the tonics actually be used on (gasp!!) Kadilen instead (now thats a costume I would love to have)? For what it’s worth, this is for a war attack team only. I attack mono in war because I’m an overanalytical turtle when it comes to playing the tiles for those 12 attacks per week.

Given that you have three heroes who heal on your mono team, I’d say that Atomos healing himself is not needed. Also, this team would rely only on tile damage.

Lianna is the better choice, in my opinion. She is one of the best snipers in the game and will work well with Peters (if she doesn’t kill a hero, Peters can finish them off).

P.S. I really like your writing style.

There’s actually an interesting synergy you can pull between Peters and Atomos, if you like playing a setting up game.

Because Peters is a silencer and not a mana blocker or cutter, you can use him to hold an opponent up to max mana - setting Atomos up to inflict max damage on that particular target… And because Peters is fast, he’ll get there first while you’re still charging Atomos.

.

Honestly though… Either way your green lineup is lacking a real sting right now, so whether sniper or AoE fits best kinda depends on what you like better - Atomos will do more total damage, but Lianna will be far more likely to finish off a particular target.

.

How do you like to play?

You’re probably going to do both of these guys eventually anyway, so I wouldn’t worry so much about which ends up going first.

I don’t think that team is setup to support Atomos, and Liliana adds damage — Which is needed.

Telly reduces mana, Peters silences — but Atomos relies on mana to pack a punch

Tarlak maximizes Tiles, which is good for a titans but less than optimal in many areas — and may be overkill In a 5x stack for the use; think he adds enough

Consider finding a spot for Buddy + Emblems As An occasional swap in — The synergy is better.

You may wait to finalize until Telly is done to see how effective they actually are on offense… I’m waiting on Vela with 12 scopes to see how she turns out

Not a fan of Vanilla Kade on offense - her shielding doesn’t block dots (last I checked) and she doesn’t hit hard, particularly without the defense hit bonus

Since I got Wu Kong at an early start to my career, followed by Tarlak a few months later (and Guardian Gazelle the day she was released) I’ve crafted a style of play that focuses on slowing down the opponent to doing only slash damage (if I can help it) while using massive tile damage to kill the enemies. It’s made me focus on board manipulation so much.

I love the path you took to get to Peters silence and Atomos max damage, but that’s a dangerous game to play. I would need one more match after charging Peters to make it work and then heaven forbid the enemy with the most mana is the one I fear the least - what a waste!

Buddy will never get emblems. His DEF stat is legit as is, his -DEF buff and minion spam more than make up for his paltry ATK stat. Besides, I have a Seshat and Red Hood that take priority over those ranger emblems as it is. Buddy is blue titan only or second war flag on another blue tank.

I like the idea that both Peters and Lianna charge at the same time, rendering one hero dead, or at the very least, completely useless. In my heart of hearts I was leaning that way to begin with.

I would love to do both of these heroes but after A/A+ on every titan, completing every chest and quest imaginable, and watching countless mystic visions, I’ve only been able to average 1 tonic a month. In 6 months I may have a MN or Heimdall or Ratatoskr (is there a fingers crossed emoji?) and then what? Another crisis and another opinion thread I suppose…

Thanks for all the responses so far! Love this community, warts and all.

I get it :slight_smile:

Going through the same thing with Ranger —

Went Athena to 18 for ~1350, Buddy to near Max — which let me save a few team points and a lot of emblems

Skipped Hood (Emblemed Wilbur is better vs cost)

Greg Next —

Seshat is still 1/1 unfortunately, but went with Ursena for family Bonus/ Fat stack of emblems sitting there.

Buddy + Emblems is worth the ~ 350 when you can spare them, for Hps / attack; his pets are like a heal shield for the team … which help the slower stuff survive; he’s just a way better hero than nekkid —- particularly with the other hero’s you have :slight_smile:

But my purpose was defense down in green for stacks.

If you pull Heimdal — stop, get him to 4/80 and retool around him :slight_smile:
