That’s very informative, thanks very much!
Proteus DoT while not reduced by attack debuff and enemies’s defense buff, it also not boosted by attack buff and enemies’s defense debuff. Thus it somewhat negate his usefullness in attack combo such as when paired with Tiburtus and Boldtusk…
As of the moment, I’m leaning toward def/hp path. Anyone know the total DoT difference between def/hp Proteus and attack Proteus?
I would like to see the card if anyone has fully/highly talented Proteus… Thanks.
Proteus has a major conflict with another top notch dark hero, Sartana wants to use the same emblems and she is an elite 5* sniper.
So far, I’ve gone the conservative HP/Def route as well because I want him alive to cast his special. The mana lock is my main reason for using him as that changes the complexion of the battle more than a slightly higher DoT (total damage is higher if he fires twice with lower DoT than once with higher DoT). I like his attack stat and his tile damage is excellent for a 4*, maxing it to 800+ is amazing but he is competing with Sartana for emblems, not to mention big sister Hel so there is a good chance that he is sharing his Wizard emblems and won’t be at 800+ for quite a while.
Our Titans are coming close to one shotting him (8*/9*) so it feels as though a big of extra durability is needed.
Regardless of the route you take, Proteus remains (IMO) the best 4* in the game.
I think Defence/Health has more value on most heroes to be honest. Attack is sexier and more ‘badass’ but I keep killing these +12 4*s and +5 five stars with the same number of tiles that I used to… while my boring Defence oriented dudes are living longer. I made an exception for Liana, because One shotting is fun.
Like you, I bring Proteus to every fight, whether it is titan, map, raid, or event. He has helped me win many battles.
But that is also my concern. I do not know what to do in an event that reflects purple (I believe Halloween?). Without Proteus, I am doomed… unless of course, I pull Hel. But knowing how RNG works in this game, I don’t think that’s ever gonna happen.
Hel is dark, too.
Probably Gretel, Little John and Hansel there…
…Hel won’t help in purple reflect events. Time to build up someone else for those events (Hansel if you can)
Oh right! I forgot Hel is dark as well…
Well, I do have a Gretel sitting at 3/60. Guess I need to bring her to full ascension. Thank you!
Thanks! I forgot Hel is dark. For some reason I thought she was holy…
Nothing holy about Hel
lol good one.
I dream of having both Proteus and Hel. Team No Mana!
Thank you! Yes, that’s where I got that wrong impression from!
Well shut my mouth.
But you made me go on Facebook
I feel like there’s a column I should be adding a chalk mark to somewhere…
Was searching for this answer alas here it is, my Proteus is ready so I shall begin…thanks lol
A very interesting topic, and having just fully levelled Proteus, I have chosen to go the attack route. There are good arguments for both routes but I maximising the attack function is more fun!
@Montyville My first alt was lucky enough to pull double Proteii. So one will be defense and hp, the other will be attack and hp.
