I find fighting Titans one of the most enjoyable parts of this game, and I was hoping to get some advice and opinions from more knowing minds than me as to how I could squeeze out that little bit of more damage.
For context, I know that the keys of Titan damage is color stacking, defense down (especially elemental defense down if possible), and a Wu Kong / Ranvir / Tarlak / Miki. I’m not asking for the hypothetical best team possible since few people will ever achieve such a thing, but rather what’s a better strategy all other things being equal.
In a perfect world, you’d have teams like these (which I have, utilizing Razor’s hero utility and plugging as a thanks: https://enphero.com/?ver=3.00):
(caveat I know Richard/Kelile aren’t the best in their category but they’re the best based on where my bench is now, so just accept it. Also I haven’t pulled a Falcon yet, so that’ll have to do for my reds.)
But what I’d like to know is basically which does more damage: 4-1 composition + items or 3-1-1 composition?
For reference, I’ve included my Yellow and Purple Titan teams, the former of which is lacking a purple +attack hero (since the only one is Khiona, whom I don’t have), and the latter is lacking both (and especially Jackal since I haven’t pulled one either). My blue Titan team is equally abysmal since green classic heroes are pretty weak in general, and though I do have Gadeirus to compensate, my scores aren’t nearly as good as they are versus Red or Green Titans.
So, would it better to run this:
And bring Bear Banner to compensate.
Or to run this:
And lose the 4th hero of the strong color but have an overall stronger effect?
In a similar vein, might it make more sense to go Boldtusk - Frida - Grimm - Richard - Ranvir instead of Kiril - Frida - Grimm - Richard - Ranvir since Boldtusk’s benefit is bigger and lasts a turn longer? 3-1-1 v 4-1 compositions again.
In my Purple Titan team, I have a similar issue, though I use Giant Harpoons to compensate dropping Wilbur who overlaps a lot with Vivica and between Ranvir and Wu Kong can miss his defense down sometimes which is a real bummer. I’ve been experimenting with bringing Harpoons against blue Titans and bringing in a heavy hitter like an emblemed Caedmon instead of my Grimm, but it’s so expensive to do that.
I’m going to tag some people in the hopes that they have some data/answers, but I have no idea if they do or not, so apologies for the spam if you in question has no working knowledge: @Garanwyn @Kerridoc @AirHawk @Gryphonknight
