Several dilemmas actually…
My maxed 5*s are as follows:
Bera+20, Seshat+20, Clarissa+19, Lepiota+9, Grimble+3, Myztero.
C Joon+20, Uraeus+20, Malosi+20, Poseidon+14, Bai+3
Telluria+20, Francine+19, Elkanen+9, C Horghall.
Vela+20, Ariel+19, Glenda+14, Misandra+10, Miki
Tyr+20, c Marjana+19, Baldur+19, JF+18, Noor+6, Elena.
And the dilemmas are:
Red: Ares vs 2nd C Marjana
C Marjana is the known commodity here - she would improve my war depth and help against green mythic titans. But I am intrigued by Ares, both for titans and in a second red team base around tile damage and probably including wilbur and falcon. I would like to hear from those in the know as to how good his crit bonus is - seems quite powerful even at 3-70. I have lots of paladin emblems (and happy to reset telluria too) but few spare rogue ones. 6 rings.
Yellow: Thor vs Norns vs Roostley
I thought I would definitely go with Thor but having experimented at 3-70 he seems less good than I expected. Because he cycles through his three hits (unlike ninjas) he is a disruptor in the first instance, who then goes onto be a quite devastating hitter. But in the disruptor role I prefer malosi or even bai yeong (plus jackal) as their debuffs are much more powerful. And later in the fight I prefer stone cold killers like c joon and uraeus. Conversely, I assumed norns would stay on the bench but now I see people have made use of her against the yellow mythic titan (I don’t have panther) and I find that and other innovative uses appealing. I have nothing against roostley but he doesn’t seem very interesting. I have some fighter emblems, few sorcerer and loads of paladin. Darts 4 (so this is not yet a decision I need to take)
Blue: Frosth vs Snow White
Again I thought this a no-brainer as frost’s potential synergies with bera, Glenda and Noor look great. But I have very few slow heroes, which is a bit limiting in rush wars/tourneys and I like the thought of SWs massive damage and synergy with wilbur. I wouldn’t have many emblems free for either. Scopes 9.
This one finally is a no-brainer as my greens suck and atomos will make a good replacement for elkanen in my green stack. I have plenty of emblems and 15 tonics so no problem there. However, I only have 2 tomes so the question here is whether I want to go ahead and ascend him now or wait on one of the above possibilities.
All advice gratefully received.
Ps - maybe i should add that, other than the PoV, I am now ftp so I am not anticipating getting any better options in the future.
