Semi-new player here looking to improve composition abilities and I’m looking for some advanced analysis of my roster from any vets. I’m really trying to learn about how to combine different abilities in order to maximize my power in both attack/defense during raids and have some thoughts about my roster, but don’t know if my thinking is wrong. I’ve seen really good advice from @Kerridoc and @RandaPandah so figured I’d tag you both just because I think you have great thoughts on the game, but would honestly appreciate advice from any experienced Platinum+ players.
Here’s my 4*/5* roster:
For my defense team, I’m leaning toward: Triton - Khiona - Buddy - Kiril - Gretel.
My thinking is that this composition doesn’t result in any buff overrides aside from Kiril/Khiona attack buff. I have Melendor as a heal option, but figure since the enemy team might stack red to kill Buddy, it would make sense to have an off-color healer so that both the tank and healer aren’t really weak to the same element. Gretel is the four star I decided to ascend, which is why I included her, but if Chao or Li Xiu might be better, I’d love to hear arguments. I’m not sure how I feel about Gretel on defense, since I’d imagine the AI just fires her special off randomly and it’s mainly impactful when selectively used to shut down a charged opponent? Is there something good about Gretel on defense that I’m missing? If you had my exact roster, which defense team would you work toward?
For my attack team, I’m leaning toward Wilbur - Buddy - Khiona - Gretel - Sabina.
The main changes are bringing Wilbur in (who seems like a liability on defense) and then replacing Kiril with Sabina so I don’t override Wilbur/Khiona’s superior defense/attack buffs. Melendor could work as well in place of Sabina, and I guess I could ascend both of them and flex between those two healers as needed. I’d love to use Santa Claus, but figure it’ll be a while before I can ascend him to max so I haven’t focused on a composition that includes him. He seems like a great tank and I’d love to use him one day.
I’d appreciate any advice from you all! I feel like there are some really strategic players on this forums and I’d love to learn more about how to craft good teams beyond just the basics.
