I am really in a pickle. I already have 2 Magnis (one at 3rd stripe, the other one untouched) and I also have 2 untouched Velas. Based on the consensus here, Vela would be the better choice and I find it IMHO to be a bit strange. Magni is one of the finest snipers out there that he would be useful in stacking against raids and in wars. He also excels against titans since he has a superior attack stat than Vela. For months, I have been holding my 6 scopes for Magni since I am working on improving my 3 and 4 star bench of heroes. But since Vela landed on my lap last month, I am now hesitant using scopes to whom after reading several posts here. Unfortunately for Vela, I can’t use emblems on her since they are solely focused for Albe. And I have approx 1100 fighter emblems unused, which initially was supposed to be given to maxed Poseidon (I denied him emblems because his specials are not really that useful to most occasions. My other blues are maxed Frida, maxed Athena, maxed Master Lepus, maxed Ariel +7 (some emblems are with Rigard and some over 400+ still unused), 3/70 Miki, 3/70 Aegir, 3/70 Richard. I also have Snow White gathering dust in the corner. I have also all viable and useful 4 star ice heroes maxed and including some dupes. I may want to gather more scopes and get them to 11 before I decide what to do with them.
