My locked in heroes are:
Dark: +19 Dapper although I am open to using regular Rigard too. My only 5* are Obakan and Quintus. We use a dark tank.
Holy: 4.5x Neith. Gazelle (3.70) not a def option and I have 1.1 Joon but would lack the mats. Neith has emblem priority. I have mats to max Gazelle.
Green: +7 Kingston.
My blue and red options:
Red: 3.70 JF, 2.xx Marj, and 1.1 Elena (not under consideration). 3 rings and 3 blades shy of being able to max JF and Marj. Proty hogs most wizard emblems and I have 615 free rogue emblems (more if I strip Scarlett)
Blue: +20 Grimm, 4.5x Richard (no emblem conflicts), 1.1 Misandra, Magni, Fenrir (emblem conflict with Kingston), 1.1 Vela (could prise emblems from Caed). Have mats to fully ascend one.
Kingston Vela Dapper JF Neith - Dot team with Kingston sniper and Neith support. Synergies seem meh and small (but workable) emblem conflicts.
Kingston Richard Dapper Neith Marj - Fairly standard but not very scary. Great for emblems.
Kingston ??? Rig/Dap Neith ???
Taking emblems into account, it seems like Richard and Marj would be the best option. I can then choose one of the blues to level for use in attack (one of the fighters or Vela). Please tell me if I would be making a terrible mistake by going this route.
I know that I will not have a devastating defense team, but I would like to produce the best team with what I have available. I have cut spending to a minimum so I don’t expect to see any superstars in the near (or distant) future. FWIW, I have enough tabards for two 5*.
