Which dark 5* to level?

If that’s the case, I’d rule out Mok-Arr. He’s really only useful when you have a strong stable of purple heroes that was immune to his special. I’d value Quintus just a little biut more than Obakan.

I understand it’s not quite true since his buff that he is only good in a mono team. I haven’t levelled my shark yet but people who have him say he doesn’t do that much damage to allies. You wouldn’t want to team him with yellows, mind you…

In my honest opinion, if you run TC20 on a regular basis you will eventually get a better 5* Dark ie Sartana. So save your mats for a little while longer.
But if you want to run with it now, I wouldn’t do Quintus unless you have his costume.
So from the rest of the heroes in your list it leaves Obakan as your best option.
Whichever hero you choose, good luck

obakan is ok for titans

Gotta post rest of roster to know

Contrary view from me. You aren’t likely to use any of those 3 on defense, you already have Rig – I’d go with Mok-Arr, at least the opponent will feel his special when it goes off. Obakan’s special is way too weak, and with his riposte just protecting him, he’s just not worth it.

Mok-Arr is not a great hero, but he’s seriously underrated here because his special includes a tiny bit of damage to your own heroes. The amount is so small, you won’t even notice it. Mok-Arr’s special hits as hard as Quintus’ does, but on Average speed, yes dark is immune, but he makes up for it by wrecking Joon or Drake at the same time.

As someone that maxed Obakan, and never uses him now, I can’t tell you how many times I fired his special hoping for damage, only to ask myself, where did it go?

If you need a project, work on Obakan and hope you get a better option by the time he’s 3/70.

I stated the most relevant heroes in the startpost, but if it helps:

Well, Sabina is done. Still not sure, so I’ll do Balthazar costume. Currently leaning to Obakan, with fast and high attack-value.

I mostly agree with your analysis.

I would like to add a couple of things: shooting C. Rigard, C. Tiburtus and then Mok-Arr would deal a HUGE amount of damage to all enemy’s team (except for purples). I do often a similar thing, only with Ursena instead of the shark.

The cost of this is a very little damage to your non-purple heroes.

Obakan also strikes hard but only on three and his reposte is not very useful, as it covers only himself. Because of this, you can just avoid dropping tiles on him and suffer almost no consequences (or you can bring a dispeller).
Nonetheless I wouldn’t underestimate him, it is not uncommon to find him in diamond league defenses.

There are indeed better purples of those… but if you don’t want to wait, Mok-Arr would be my choice. Many are scared of the damage he deals to one’s own non-purple, but it’s very minor

Where do you plan to use your 5* most (world map, quests, etc.?) Which Purples do you use on offensive Raids and Events? Do you run mono? That could shift the balance between the three.

Costumed Rigard and Tibs indeed make a great combination with Quintus and with Mok-Arr…

I’m also thinking that your 4* Purples are mainly supportive, so choosing a 5* with a nice hard-hitting special would add a lot to your roster. If you run mono, then Mok-Arr > Quintus as you don’t suffer the drawback from his special. And I would say over Obakan as well, Obakan’s special IMO does not do much damage, and his self-riposte pales beside Cyprian’s riposte-over-three.

All three aren’t really good at defense, so would use them for map, events and war (and probably against a yellow titan). I seldom do mono, I prefer 3-2. My favourite offensive raid-team is colen/Wilbur/boldtusk/rigard©/proteus. Shark (quintus) could replace colen there.

I’m levelling the shark now as its my only other 5* dark and out of them 3 I’d probably be levelling him still.
People who actually leveled and emblemed and played with him have good stuff to say, then those who always say pffft mokar he’s never getting passed 1/1.
There some good threads on here have a read of them and decide.

I have Mok, he’s maxed and he’s getting emblemed. He is a decent part of my mono purple and he has only 4 talents so far.

One thing is that his self team damage is almost negligible. 50 health? And his damage to yellow is almost the same as a sniper. When he fires after Rigard and Tiburtus, he typically kills any yellow heroes.

He is decent. I mean think about it, he does more than Ursena (without the drop off), almost as much as Killhare (one of the best heroes).

His real drawback is his inability to hurt purple. As long as you don’t pick a team with 2 dark heroes, you’re good.

Thanks! All the insights here have convinced me to start with the shark! Mok-arr is actually the first 5* I got. Also, the best 5* is one you actually have, and out of these 3, I think he’ll be the best addition. Next i’ll probably bring obakan to 3/70 and if in a few months I don’t have another good dark option, I might ascend him.

I would go C. Rigard, Wilbur, Mok-Arr, Proteus, Colen.

Boldtusk and C.Rigard’s atk bonus would overwrite themselves. Alternatively, if you want a more conservative deployment, swap Boldtusk for Sabina, so you would have dispel (and Sabina as a good atk stat)

Almost!

First lets tryout the big shark, and see how he performs before I pull the trigger for the final ascension

Gave mats the other day. My titan hits are better my raid is soo soo as took proteus out may have to see if ghosty needs to go and put proteus back in working progress for me. But liking the shark think in teltoc he be cool to be on my team.
