3: Gill-Ra: I mainly leveled her up because she was so ugly, I just wanted to be kind to her. I use her a lot on offense and defense now.
4: Jack O’Hare: This is the one that’s really surprising to me. I’ve had him since Easter, and was in no hurry to level him. I really only did so because I’m trying to level all of my 4*. At some point, I thought he would fit into a gap in my tournament team defense, so I emblemed him up on the attack path. I was blown away by his performance. My 4* Raid Tournament defenses, which used to struggle, are now almost always “A” with him on right flank. And of course he’s excellent offensively, especially paired with Almur.
5: Freya: Some people have said Guardian Chameleon and Malosi, though I secretly suspected their excellence all along. On the other hand, is Freya, who I had no idea how excellent she would be. I was actually about as bummed to get Freya as one can be when summoning a non-classic 5* because I didn’t have any other minion summoning heroes (except for Rudolph) and I thought she wouldn’t work well otherwise. I was very wrong. She’s a triple threat, buffing not only herself but all allies’ attack/defense/HP. Excellent for Bloody Battle tournaments, raiding, map-stages, you name it. I was very surprised.
