I agree except I’d do Proteus, Tiburtus, Rigard. You already have Sabina so purple healer would not be high on my priority list. Rigard (especially with costume) is fantastic, but i’d rather have Proteus and Tibs with Sabina first.
In my honest opinion, you already have a 4* purple hero in Sabina so I would go for a different skill.
And that would be proteus who is a game changer.
In your position I would max Boldtusk over Scarlett.
Boril for your next Blue.
Gretel over Hu Tao for your next yellow.
Little John for your next Green.
Try to build 3 x 3* rainbow colour teams.
And 3 x 4* rainbow colour teams before you start building your 5* heroes.
I would do Proteus , Rigard or Tibs. If you can allow yourself to max Gormek do it and you will have your first defense down . If not i will consider what @Ruskin505 said. Rigard is so good but youve maxed Sabina first and that will serve well at your level. Though rigard is in another level. Super sturdy and brings cleanse which is different to sabina dispel.
However if you dont have def down heroes its more difficult to inflict damage… so heal is important but damage too.
So while you do proteus you will see if you need a sturdier healer rig if you lack firepower tibs
@JGE For sure! I just got the Boldtusks this week. So I wanted to finish the second Scarlett to 3.60 since I still need hidden blades. I purposefully stopped Hu Tao at 3.60 because I pulled Gretel mid leveling of Hu Tao.
Proteus first for sure, as others have already explained. Then…
Tibs vs. Rigard
I’m leaning towards Tiburtus. The defense debuff is really useful, and if you color-stack, your Purples will be Sabina + Proteus. They were also my first 2 Purples and from experience, they’re great but they don’t kill the enemy with their specials - tile damage has to do it (or depending who else you bring). Tibs helps with that, he softens up the enemy. And Sabina and Proteus both have good tile damage, so there’s good synergy there.
Rigard, now Rigard is a sturdier healer than Sabina AND adds a cleanse (useful for raids, less useful for world map/quests where you can bring antidotes). If you focus on raids and wars (where you can’t bring items), Rigard could be considered. otherwise, still go for Tiburtus first over Rigard in my opinion.
my good forum friend @Muchacho and I had a discussion recently re Tibs vs. healers (in the context of building a mono Purple team) and that discussion informed many of my opinions on this issue.
Sabina is a very good healer but Rigard, especially with costume, is better. Eventually you will find you are using Rigard all the time and Sabina hardly at all, mainly in class quests. But you have Sabina maxed and she will serve you great for now as purple healer. She does have a big heal percentage.
That being said, Proteus is a fantastic hero and I would max him next. I got Proteus late in the game but I still see his usefulness in a team of 5*'s. He helps control the opponent’s heroes like no one else (except Hel).
Tiburtus with costume is another solid hero I use all the time, in my mono purple stack and against titans.
could also be a playstyle thing? I almost always stack 3/2 in the world map, quests, events, etc… so if I select, say, Proteus, that almost always means I am bringing a Purple healer along - and if I can bring Sabina, that saves space in the 2 for someone with different skills. (i also have 3x Sonya, 2x Caedmon, 2x Melendor, all with costumes )
