F2P here (only ever spent about 2 EUR on gems, which got me Lancelot, so very happy!)
I already have a decent roster of 4s (with one more Yellow, could make 2 rainbow teams), and am beginning to ascend my first 5s. I believe that the best heroes are the ones you have, no use planning that you will pull Gravemaker or Hel - what are the chances?
Raid-wise, I am firmly in high Platinum. I can make it to Diamond on offense, but my defense does not let me stay there.
I have some specific questions below, but first, my roster: all maxed and emblemed unless specified.
- 5* - Aeron (3/70)
- 2nd Proteus (3/60)
- 5* - Inari (3/70)
- 4* - Li Xiu
- 2nd Gormek (3/60)
- Aegir (3/70)
- M. Lepus (3/70)
- Grimm (3/56, will take up to 3/70)
- Boril (1/1)
- Agwe (1/1)
- 5* - Margaret (4/15, will max out and emblem)
- Jack O’Hare
- Gobbler (1/1)
- Gadeirus (1/1)
- Kashhrek (1/1)
Blue is my strongest color in terms of number and quality of heroes. I rank Purple next, not as many as Green, but my Purples are generally much better than my Greens.
- Raid/War defense. Now that Margaret is about to surpass Jack and Skittles in terms of raw stats, should I bring her in? and if so, how do I arrange my team?
a) Kiril - Margaret - Gormek - Li Xiu - Proteus
Gormek is tankier than Li; Kiril at left makes him fire first and boost my heroes’ attack. Margaret’s skill works best in flank, but has no defenses as tank.
b) Kiril - Margaret - Li Xiu - Proteus - Gormek (or switch Gormek and Kiril?)
Li is a good tank, and Proteus at Flank makes him more likely to actually fire.
I only need one Scope more to ascend my first blue. Should it be Aegir or M. Lepus? When I do ascend, should I replace Kiril with one of them? Aegir would make more sense then, as I replace a defense booster with a defense booster, though I don’t totally replace the healing and I lose the attack buff. On the other hand, Lepus hits like a truck, and sometimes the best defense is a good offense…
Among my 4* Greens and Blues, who should I prioritize?
A) Greens (to work on after Margaret) - was thinking Gadeirus, for family bonus with Proteus. Kashhrek is a decent tank, but I already have Margaret for Green, and Gormek and Li Xiu are both decent tanks too.
B) Blues (to work on after Grimm and while waiting for my last scope) - Boril over Agwe, for sure. And for ascension, I guess I should save my Warm Capes for Aegir and then for Lepus. With Kiril and Triton, I have enough maxed 4* Blues for now?
thanks for all your input
