You’re right, the team you proposed is way too healer heavy and doesn’t dish out nearly enough damage.
Kashhrek is probably the tankiest out of your heroes and does make for a good tank; however looking at what you have, it’s hard not to double up on colors if using him as tank. Boldtusk is the next tankiest, and is a longtime favorite, so he can definitely be doing tank duty. Of the heroes you have, only Sonya, Chao, Caedmon, and Scarlett are fast, so your options for the outer two wings are a bit limited. I really dislike average speed heroes on wing unless they have a game changing special, and on flank means they can fire more often on average.
With those points in mind, I have two proposals: (assuming you level them all to 3/60 at some point):
- Caedmon-Tiburtus-Boldtusk-Li Xiu-Sonya
- Sonya-Tiburtus-Kashhrek-Li Xiu-Scarlett
1 has two dispellers which is a bit redundant, but on the plus side, if the defense works as intended, then BT gives an atk buff to all first, which makes Tiburtus hit that much harder. Now with a 34% def down on 2 or 3 of the attacker’s heroes coupled with a 48% atk buff, Li Xiu’s 150% damage becomes more like 300% while also doing a mana cut. The attacker should be hurting pretty badly at this point, and if they can’t either heal or get rid of BT’s attack buff, it’s game over for them.
2 has a dispeller in Sonya and an attack down in Scarlett, so there’s more utility. Kashhrek IMO is less dangerous than BT, but at your level, there are few good options for dealing with him other than stacking red and hoping for a good board. Because if he goes off, that 94% defense against red will absolutely wreck the attacking team. Then your other 4 hitters can just pick them off one by one.
I like 2 a bit less actually because of how squishy Scarlett is. When I build a defense I like my heroes to have roughly the same durability (the tank needs extra durability of course), so none of them are particularly prone to dying prematurely, or can be used as a punching bag to dump tiles into. So for that reason I’m more in favor of option 1. But once you have all of them leveled to 3/60, do give both a try and see which works better for you.
