It looks like picking the 2% Mana node (for 40 emblems) won’t help Rigard as he gets 5% Mana boost from the costume and 9% Mana boost from a level 11 troop, but only needs 12% to drop to 9 tiles (according to
Pollikins MANA SHEET) and the next drop to 8 tiles is well beyond the 2% buff the Mana node adds.
It kinda seems I should stop at node 18, and if some bounty of cleric nides should drop into my account, I should take the critical node instead (which also seems better on the costume side).
It seems wrong to throw the Mana buff out, but unless it’ll help the defense significantly, I can’t yet see it worth the emblems.
What am I missing?
