Further to my previous post, I have done some ascending and am running out of mats so need to be more choosy with priorities. I think I know who I want to level but as all of us who post do, I’d appreciate the hive mind’s input and expertise in spotting something I may have missed. Apologies for the essay. I’d say my focus is war depth and alternative line-ups for raiding.
TL;DR - I’m leaning towards ascending JF, Raf, Poseidon, Gazelle, Killhare and CSartana. WWYD?
Fire - 1 to Ascend (8 rings)
- Black Knight
JF: although initially skeptical, and already having a burner in GM, I’ve rediscovered an enjoyment with him since carelessly failing to account for his defence down switcheroo in a couple of war hits. I’ve also found a really neat rainbow line-up involving Gazelle and Killhare.
Noor: she’s just so fun! And her minions can be very effective.
CElena: pairs well with BK; I’ve had fun with her and Sif with raids. When she does go off it’s very fun to watch.
Other options: Marjana, Azlar, Khagan.
I’m leaning towards JF.
Ice (1 to ascend) (11 scopes)
- King Arthur
Raf: I only have 2 levelled 5* healers and they’re both green. Raf is solid. Cleansers are always welcome. He is fairly sturdy at even at 3/70 though, but a boost in stats would be welcome in helping him survive long enough to change the game. At the moment I tend to bring him along as secondary healer with Heimdall
Skadi. Great in the current meta but is she worth ascending ahead of a healer?
Rumple - I like to have fun, and Rumple certainly provides fun.
Misandra - Arthur’s a good sniper, but Misandra is faster and has the benefit of mana boosting. She’d also be a good Candiate for War Defence with the cleanse.
Miki - works perfectly well at 3/70- I have a feeling he’ll stay there for a while
Other options - Magni, Fenrir, Aegir, Thorne, CRichard, CIsarnia, Glenda.
I’m leaning towards Raf.
Nature (1 to ascend) (6 tonics)
Telly - is losing the battle. I have more than enough tank alternatives and she’s not great offensively anymore.
Lianna - just keeps getting pased over but could be an excellent addition to the bench
GChamelon - will stay at 3/70 for a while but I do enjoy playing with him - when you pull it off it’s immensely satisfying
Francine - just seems like the obvious choice now - fast - cleanses - could be a good flank to BK in defence - but I do have Zeline as an alternative increased damage against ice
Others: CElkanon, Kaidlen, Horghall, Margaret, Zocc, Ratask
I’m leaning towards Francine - (sorry Lianna!)
Holy (2 to ascend (15 Darts)
- White Rabbit
Others: Justice, Bai Yeung, Neith, G Owl, Inari,
Malosi - I rarely use him - but he is useful when I do. He just doesn’t thrill me.
Gazelle - currently levelling her and excited to use her properly - will she work at 3/70 though? Does she need the extra survivability of full ascension?
Poseidon - I have no yellow snipers levelled yet and I just got him so maybe he leaps to the top.
Norns - could be very useful for war depth and providing another approach.
Joon - better than Poseidon? Probably not.
Delilah - Good to have a yellow healer.
Rana - I’m dabbling with the idea of a DOT team and she’d be a great part of it - and useful for field aid wars.
I’m leaning towards Poseidon and Gazelle
Dark (2 to ascend) (12 Tabards)
Others - CQuintus, CDomita, Thoth-Amun, Zulag, Clarissa
Killhare has been waiting for a while and can be devastating - she’d benefit most from the extra attack stats
Kage - is great but comes up against CSartana from the next sniper perspective
Kunchen - is probably sturdy enough at 3/70 - and I do have a couple of other Rigards I could level instead.
I’m leaning towards CSartana and Killhare.
