I’m currently raiding in high platinum (2100-2200 cups) with this defense team:
- Sabina + 11
- Gormek + 11
- Poseidon 4^80
- Sonya + 7
- Melendor +8
So I had this plan about my tank. I don’t have any really great tanky heroes. For a while, I used my Beefy Gormek. Next, I tried an Danzaburo + 11. Right now, as you can see, I’m going with Poseidon 4^80, because he has the highest defense of anyone on my roster, but that’s a short term solution. I’d really like to move him to a flank, where I think he will be more effective. My plan was to max and emblem Boril, who I have read can function as a tank into low diamond, which is my goal. But I have been leveling Boril and Rigard at the same time, and although I knew he would be good, I’ve discovered just how good Rigard is. If I don’t emblem Boril, he won’t be able to hold as tank at that level. But if I don’t emblem Rigard, he probably can’t displace my Sabina +11 on my main team.
My next blue project is Thorne (started today), who I’m pretty sure I will max. (F2P; can’t be choosy, and I’ve got the mats in-hand.) He looks like a pretty good tank candidate, especially if I pull my paladin emblems from Sonya. I suspect, though, if I draw Kiril before finishing Thorne, I’d put Thorne on hold and max Kiril. I’m hurting for wizards, and Kiril is a great hero anyway. So maxing Thorne could be a ways out.
I do have four reset tokens. One will be used to reset Valen +20 so fighter emblems can go to Poseidon. I need a few more fighters leveled before I do that. Another is for Hawkmoon +20, who currently has my cleric emblems, to give to Boril or Rigard. A third is for Bane +20, who has my monk emblems, but those will eventually go to Li Xiu, Wu Kong, perhaps Leonidas, or ideally, Wilbur, if I could draw him. The last one will go to reset either Danza (for Domitia, who currently sits at 1^20 and is waiting for Rigard and probably Gill-Ra to get maxed) or Sonya for Thorne.
Which option do you think is best?
- Roll with Poseidon at tank, max and emblem Rigard, use Boril for depth, wait for Thorne as new tank, even if it takes a long time
- Emblem Boril and move him to tank immediately, Rigard goes to bench depth, Poseidon goes to flank, level Thorne at my leisure
