Yunan or Rana are they worth it?

Does Yunan block field aid?

I would hope so, but someone else should confirm. I do know that vampire bites steal from first aid, so it should be considered a heal across the board.

Yunan would be pretty nice in a 5* tournament with Very Fast boost.

Yes, all the sand empire heroes block field aid. I use two of the sand empire heroes regularly when field aid is up.

I am confused why Yunan gets more support than Rana… can someone explain to me their reasoning?

  • Rana is average speed while Yunan is slow

  • Rana deals even (not minor) damage (185%) to 3 heroes at a higher percentage. Though Yunan has a lower damage percentage (161%) it atleast hits all heroes instead of 3.

  • Target receives a lot more DOT from Rana (403) than Yunan (339) does

  • Enemy receives a larger debuff to healing (75%) from Rana than Yunan (50%)

I know Yunan has more bulk but does that really make up for the slower mana speed, less DOT, and less healing debuff?

He’s the #2 tank after…wait for it…Boss Wolf in Raid wins :face_with_monocle:

Yeah i saw that, and that also confused me. I always see people raving about Yunan and I don’t know why he gets so much more support than Rana does.

I suspect its because great tanks are a common subject as people are always trying to build up the best defensive teams. In that role Yunan is better.

I wonder what the number of BW vs Yunan is ? Does BW have more wins simply because there’s more of him or because he’s actually better than Yunan ?

All tanks die on good boards. Yunan can survive to fire in incrementally better boards than Rana can, and he does more damage to the enemy team with his special.

To be clear, unless SGG is being fairly sloppy with their wording, what you are saying is NOT consistent with their announcement. They have posted that the top winning RATES are held by BW, Yunan, and Guinevere. The fact that BW is more available than Yunan shouldn’t be a major factor in determining that (I’m assuming there’s a fair number of each).

SGG has not addressed the absolute number of wins that you asked about.

There are undoubtedly far more leveled Guins than BW + Yunan together. The win rate might actually be due to the opposite effect: people know how to fight Guin, but they’ve never perfected strategies for BW or Yunan.

There’s also a purple dispeller (GP), but none in Yellow. That has to help BW a lot…

They certainly have the track record.

But I’m merely asking for clarification. As it stands people might think that BW is the best tank in the game and flock to try to get him and/or max him asap…

It is definitely a rate number, not absolute number of wins.

But I agree that caution is warranted. An increase in availability of BW and Yunan tanks could easily lead to a decrease in their effectiveness.

Yup. And many will be disappointed. Use caution indeed…

Love the stats btw…

I was super excited when they said they were generating some. I’m really glad they used a couple of my suggestions. :smile:

Yunan is a solid tank, beefy, dot, messes with heal… If we do see an uptick in Yunans out there soon, I’m glad to see that a great counter is just around the corner (September HOTM). Hard to justify tonics for him though as he pretty much amounts to a raid tank currently with limited use elsewhere.

I use Yunan on every war. Specially against heal aid… High level mana troops help. I’d love a second and a Rana as well :wink:

Im also aiming for Yunan with my 35 EHTs saved. A green tank would be perfect for me as i could flank him with Ariel and Misandra boosting his speed.

I found the statistics very interesting, too. I actually have more of the event heroes than the classic ones(No Magni, Isarnia, or Sartana). Glad to hear Yunan is such a good tank. I missed out on getting the Hatter, so I’d love a good green 5*. I have Ranvir, so I’m gonna wait for July to do some pulls. No matter what, I should get new heroes. I didn’t start playing until last August. This is my first Sand Empire, so I don’t have any of those heroes.
