Hi, all. I am a 100% f2p, which makes getting great heroes a long and painful process. After about 8 months of playing, so far I only have 2 legendary heroes: Vivica from an Atlantis pull, and Thorne from TC20.
Now, Vivica is definitely a good hero and I am already in the process of maxing her (finally got the last dart from the rare quest!). But my question is with Thorne. From what I read on this forum, Thorne is universally voted one of the worst 5* heroes in the game. But for a f2p such as myself, getting a 5* is extremely difficult. I do have enough materials to fully ascend him, but I am not sure if I should. I consulted with folks in my alliance. Some say I should only bring him to 2/60; some say at least bring him to 3/70; and there are those who say I should play with what I have and bring him all the way to 4/80.
So I just wanted to open up this question on the forum: What is Thorne’s value to a f2p? Should I spend any non-farmable material on him at all, or should I just bring him to 2/60 and save my materials? Thank you!
