Who to spend the scopes on, Perseus or Richard?

heroes

#1

So it’s taken me about 8 months to collect 6 Farsight Scopes to be able to ascend a 5* Ice/Blue hero to 4th tier. That being said, I don’t want to have regrets on who I use them on. My options are Richard and Perseus (and Thorne, who’s not a worthy option). Now that Perseus has been in play for a while, a lot of players have had the chance to either use him or raid against him.

My current team of 5* that I use for raid defense, and am still leveling:
Sartana @ 4-60
Lianna @ 4-60
Azlar @ 4-55
Musashi @ 4-53
and for the 5th spot:
Perseus @ 3-70 or Grimm @ 4-70
I put them in this order for defense: Perseus, Lianna, Azlar, Mushasi, Sartana
And in the works, waiting on mats:
Alberich @ 3-70
Natalya @ 2-60
Of course, I also have Richard and Thorne, as mentioned earlier, and a good stable of 4*s as well.

I’m looking for feedback on who I should spend the scopes on, Perseus or Richard, without the obvious “Athena is best”, or equally unhelpful “neither, get a different hero” comments ,please. I’m asking for all-around usefulness with an emphasis on raid defense, but offense as well.
Thank you all for your time and insight for any responses given, & have a great day!

Perseus IMO, he is a great choice vs Ares who you’ll meet a lot


#3

Agree. Richard is weak in comparison.


#4

Richard has the highest defense in the game. How is that weak?? I’m just asking…


#5

Perseus

While you might regret either one later, Perseus will result in less regret. He has fast mana and his anti-heal special can really help on challenge bosses and raids. Richard’s only got a good defense going for him, and that is bypassed by a number of boss specials (Damage over time and -defense debuffs).

Thank you all for your feedback, I do appreciate it! :slightly_smiling_face:

Just an update, I did ascend Perseus. And of course, I got Magni 3 days later from a single epic token. That just figures… :laughing:


#8

Ouch :anguished:

Side question, does Perseus actually block Ares from regenerating health then? I was wondering for a while about that.


#9

Yes he does, but it’s a pain to figure out who to stop from healing, Ares or one of the two heroes beside him. Ares’ attack & critical boost still apply though.
Guinevere is the only healer I haven’t tried him on yet, but he should work on every hero, regardless of who it is.

Why choose if you have Sonya? :wink:

I do have a Sonya, but haven’t leveled her yet, just got her a couple weeks ago! :laughing:
