New player, currently around level 12 and castle level 7.
I played for a while, then invested 15$ to try to speed up my progress. I got 5* yellow Leonidas, 4* purple Tiburtus, and 4* green Caedmon. These 3 are the core of my team and they will be there for the foreseeable future.
Now my problem is i have extremely weak reds and blues. I need a healer else i’d burn through potions too fast, so I am using a 1* red (Sharan) that i leveled to the max. And for a lack of anything better, i am using the only other 4* or better i have : 5* green Margaret.
I tried to use the best blue i have, which is only 2*, and it is extremely weak, dies too fast, and blue gems will do very weak damage in combat, basically same damage as a yellow vs yellow, something like 20dmg per gem. For this reason i am using Margaret, she’s a lot more solid, and helps “shield” my weak 1* red with some dodge.
I am obviously having a very hard time killing red monsters and red heroes. The counter to red is blue, and that does no damage since i don’t have a blue hero. If i use red instead to attack, my red hero is only 1* so it’s a weak damage. If if i use green, well that’s the highest resist on green.
I am currently doing map 12, but i can’t go through it without using a bunch of potions. I can handle map 11 without much trouble and that’s where i go to farm (11-5 because of some article guide i found, it is supposed to be outdated but i can’t find a better explanation for where to spend energy for XP Mai's Guide to Efficient Farming – List of best lvls to farm monster, different resources, wanted missions and XP) – The article linked there that is supposed to be better is hard to read, i don’t see an equivalent information that says if you can handle maps of this level without potions, and you should farm X-Y.
Anyway back to my question, how can i solve my red / blue issue? I mostly want to be free to play, save for the 15$ i already spent, but if i can somehow solve this issue for something like 10$ then i’ll spend it. I have 600 gems (whatever the currency for the shop is called) in reserve and i am keeping it in case there is a shop event that sells a specific color such as red and blue, similar to how right now you can get green heroes easily.
- How often do they have these kind of color specific shop events? How long do i have to wait for a blue / red event?
- In the meantime, what’s your advice? Use a 2* blue, stay with the dual 2* green, or something else?
Screenshot of my heroes sorted by power, the first 5 are my current team, the others are a defensive team, and a level 3 max team (my understanding is that there are events where we can only use 3* heroes, the other 3* i use for xp since i don’t have room)
