So far, anytime I wondered which heroes deserved the ascension mats, I questioned myself: is this hero useful everywhere or just in a very specific scenario? I would always prioritize heroes that would see more mileage and make those scarce mats worth the investment.
Now I have 26 fully leveled 5s. I do still need 4 more to be able to field only 5s in wars, and still lack some fundamental stuff such as blue and purple elemental debuff. But most often than not, I have at least one hero that’s useful in any situation that the game throws at me.
You should know that since SGG adjusted their exchange rates (and prices skyrocketed in my currency), I haven’t been spending a lot in the game other than VIP, POV and the first day offers of Atlantis and Valhalla. That means a 10x pull in one portal of my choosing each month besides the free pulls. So I haven’t been getting many new heroes.
That means I come across mats here and there, but don’t have many heroes to choose from and that made me start reconsidering some long dismissed options.
Given that context, I ask your advice on which heroes should be ascended next:
Current roster: Gravemaker (+20), Mitsuko (+20), Marjana (+15) Lady Loki (+12) and Garnet (+4).
Contenders: Noor, Costumed Elena, JF and Reuben.
Commentary: JF seems to be the obvious choice, but his dots would overlap GM’s and Marj’s. That means I would only really ever use him in wars and buff tournments and not alongside Gravy and Marj. Can see him being very useful against Frigg though. Elena is slow, but due to her high attack, she would probably make into my titan team (GM-Falcon-Wilbur-BT-Tarlak), besides war. Not looking to ascend either Noor or Reuben, but maybe can change my mind?
Current roster: Alfrike (+19), Clarissa (+8), Domitia (+7), Sartana.
Contenders: Grimble and Zulag.
Commentary: I already have 12 tabards and my purple roster is severely in need of more options, so maybe it’s time to give one these guys a chance to shine? There’s Malicna coming next march, and although not game-changing, she seems better than my current contenders. So maybe wait another month or so?
Current roster: White Rabbit (+20), Neith (+20), Malosi (+9), Delilah (+12) and Joon.
Contenders: Bai Yeong, Rana, Norns, Ranvir (working at 3.70), Guardian Owl.
Commentary: Alfrike is so fun at very fast, and now that everyone is using purple tanks for very fast wars, I’m giving the Owl another chance at being a real contender for the darts. Plus, I have nowhere else to spend those. Are Bai and Norns any useful? Is Rana worth at average speed? Or should I just wait for Uraeus?
Current roster: Heimdall (+20), Kingston (+7), Zeline (+7), Telluria (+7), Costumed Kadilen (+4).
Contenders: Ratatoskr, Tarlak, Gregorion, Lianna, Jade, Zocc, Yunan and Bertilla.
Commentary: I have a lot of options here. Rat and Tarlak are serving their purpose at 3.70 without many issues. Greg could be an addition to my green titan team, but I don’t see a huge improvement worth 6 tonics. I’m yet to find any usefulness to Zocc and Younan. Then there’s Lianna, who seems to be the pragmatic choice, but I already have Kingston. So I’m more tempted to go after Bertilla right now. Please talk me out of it.
Current roster: Raffaelle (+15), Skadi (+16), Vela (+20), Misandra (+7).
Contenders: Magni, Glenda and Costumed Richard.
Commentary: The most pragmatic choice would be Magni (everyone needs fast snipers, yada yada), but I would bring Misandra instead of him most of the time, because she already have some emblems and I like her proc. It saved my skin a lot of times. Between Glenda and Richard, I really don’t know who would be more useful. Open to suggestions.
