@Inigo, you may like your team, but if you had come to this forum earlier, I would have given you the same advice. Natalya, Lianna, Vivica and magni should have been your priorities because eventually you will want to upgrade I’m assuming, so why waste time and precious materials on heroes you know you’ll be replacing? There is no shame in putting a hold on weaker heroes and focusing on stronger ones as they come.
@Parm, if you choose to focus on your 5* heroes NOW, you will be much better off for it. Sidelining great heroes for reasons such as AW pareticipation and raids to me is a very poor reason and will only hurt your progress in the game. When I first started, I wish someone would have told me these things, but I had to figure this out on my own. I won’t say anymore after this, but if you choose to level up your weaker 4* heroes before your better 5* HOTM, it will impede your progress and hurt you in the long run. Both Khiona, Zimkitha and Gretel should be your focus.
These are the only four star heroes I have maxed out and I started with them first. I stopped working about the others because I eventually started pulling 5* heroes, 5* heroes I knew were more useful.
Now that I have a proper defense team, I focus on the 4 and 5* hero that can help me go the furthest in the game in other aspects such as AW and titans/raids.
My point in showing you all this and telling you all of this is to share my strategy, because right now, I’m one of the newest members of a top 50 alliance and I’m one of the hardest hitters. The other day, I reached spot number 44 in the WORLD when it came to trophy counts and that was due to people attacking me, not me attacking them. My strategy worked for me and it will work for the both of you, Parm/Inigo.
