Been trying out the Double formation for 2 days now with mixed results
Here’s my current defense and thoughts of why I chose them
Brynhild was made for the number 3 spot
In that spot, she gives the following to all
- 37% healing
- Immune to dispel for 4 turns
- +74% def against special skills for 3 turns
- +24% mana generation for 3 turns
That def against special skills is important because this formation is vulnerable to hit-3 becoming hit-all. She’s also fast so doesn’t need to be hit by many tiles to charge. The main negative is that she’s just a 4*
The front 2 I chose Clarissa and Grazul because both are very fast, and with mana troops will fire quickly from enemy tiles.
Clarissa’s element link gives another 30% def against Special Skills which stacks with Brynhild’s.
Grazul, on the other side, heals and also stops ailments for 2 turns, which could protect some against hit-3 DOTs such as Proteus and GM. Her element link stacks another 4% mana generation.
These 3 don’t do much damage, so the other 2 are for the heavy hitters. Sadly my roster is lacking a hit all Purple like Ursena or Quintus, so have to ‘settle’ for using Onyx.
On the other side, Elena is slow and may never fire but will benefit from both Brynhild and Grazul’s mana generation. When she does fire though, her riposte covers both Brynhild and Clarissa, and will be at times undispellable.
Currently at 2551 cups, so let’s see how this does
