Max 4* or 3/70 5*?

As the title suggests, do I focus on my 4*'s until I have mats to max a 5* or do I take my 5*'s to 3/70?

This really depends on your roster as a whole.

My normal suggestion is to wait to work on 5s until you have 3-5 rainbow 4* teams on top of any maxed 3s


I agree with you, but I am on opinion than you do not need to use less useful heroes.
For example, if you just got Joon and Hu Tao from TC20 and do not have other 4* and 5* yellows, I will certainly go Joon even for first yellow > 3*.

to an extent. If you are relatively new, and you just got those 2 heros, I would suggest maxing Hu. You’ll get more use out of him maxed than you will out of a partial joon. Joon will be nice to have maxed, but once again it really would depend on the roster as a whole


I do not think than maxed Hu Tao is good on any field except VFast tourneys. But 3/70 Joon is more universal.

For me, fulled 4* is better than 3/70 5* only by emblems. But not any 4* deserved emblems in my opinion, only selected like Rigard, BT, Mist, Proteus, Wilbur and Wu (maybe Boril if he is a war center).


Maxed 4’s are better than 5’s at 3^70, with a few exceptions.

Support 5’s that are non-damage dealers can often be very useful without last ascension - Miki, Ravnir, Gazelle, and most any healer.

Do not see any advantage on my maxed Kelile over 3/70 Marjana. I actually regret maxed Kelile, better I should max 5 Squire Wabbits to those Alice event.

The biggest advantage is you can use emblems on a maxed kelile and she can in the be used in the epic tier of events, if you skip straight to 5s a player could potentially be unable to complete those challenges.

Only on epic events, yes. But I do not try to compete and always use my 4* healer/riposte team on epic events (Rigard, Mel, Boril, BT, Wu).

It’s true Marjana will end up doing more damage, but with a maxed 4, you can add emblems.

I’ll also echo what’s been stated by others - having a solid base of 4’s will prepare you far better than having unmaxed 5, particularly when events come around that only allow 4s.

Also keep in mind that you’ll get mats for Marj eventually- you’re not choosing one over the other, just choosing the timing.

Yes. But I better have 3/70 Marj, BT and Scarlett, than max Kelile BT and Scarlett for my 3tack. And Marj and Kelile in one team - for me it is perversion.

I think it’s more important initially but once you have a deeper roster it comes down more to play style and personal preference.

How close are you on Mystic Rings for Marj? How long did it take you to collect the 4 hidden blades you’re going to use here?

Personally, I never maxed Kelili, I have 2 of her sitting at 3^60 for 8-9 months now.

I have 2 or 3 rings and 5 blades) But this is not question for me, I already have maxed Kelile and Marj on 3/70.

Don’t work on 5* unless you have all mats to max it. On the other side some 4* (like Hu Tao), don’t deserve mats. If nothing else, consider 3*, you’ll need them for raid tourneys and challenge events.

Really depends on the individual hero. But generally speaking, a 4/70 4* will usually outperform a 3/70 5* (even more so with emblems).

Hu Tao also want mats, and it can be difficult to collect for novice players. And spend it on bad 4* like Hu Tao - for me will be regret)

100% agree. There are 4* who will not receive any sturdy shield or magic orb, but there is a fantastic 5* like Vela, which can help in every red heavy quest. Or Miki for titans.

This tool can be really helpful when comparing a maxed 4 to a 3.70 5. I use it all the time when trying to decide on my next leveling projects.

Ohhh yeah Miki is 100% worth taking to 3/70 for titans.

Don’t have Vela, but she has kicked the living crap out of me in raids, so yes to her as well.
