Troops preference

So I am intrigued what is the better 4* troop? The defender or the attacker. Can someone explain what is better and why please?

Thanks all :slight_smile:

There’s already a lot on this forum on the matter:

It’s kinda a layered answer. The manna troops are better in the long term because they effect the speed of the special, but usually not until a very high level. Its different depending on the starting speed of the special. Though I personally like the crit ones on the tank in the center gives them more buff and they are more useful at the lower levels
