Raid defenses are ALL at an immediate disadvantage because they are static and do not change based upon the attacker’s lineup.
That being said, Guin is an elite tank, moreso than Grave. I can withstand some damage versus Grave, even recover if he fires of once or twice. I can beat Grave without being QUITE as dependent on a board as I am with Guin.
If she fires off her special, it will deplete mana reserves for your heroes, and prevent them from casting their specials.
First Rule of Raiding: No Specials = No Win.
Guin fires off once? Your win chance plummets. She goes off again? You’re likely almost dead anyway.
If some people want to get a top defense, she is #1 on the list for a top defense, with Athena, Grave, Zeline, Hel tied for a very close second. So why spend money? Because people have money to spend. If they like the game and want to be good, they’ve already identified who they feel is the best hero for a task.
And no, Guin is not just good on Defense. Take her raiding once in awhile. Let her out of the house, she shouldn’t stay behind just to make cookies for Arthur and GET her cookies with Sir Lancelot (lol)
It FEELS like next month’s Onatel will be very much coveted, even though she’s slow because she does similar terrible things. Either way, the trend of yellow tanks continues, with Delilah, Justice, Vivica and Guin giving Onatel the mean-girl stare (and Onatel doesn’t notice, cuz… well…)
