Quick FIN with RaZoR

Finley is one of the most destructive heroes to come along... well since Urs lol. He can take out 2, 3 sometimes 4 at a time and they can still be healthy heroes at the time of check out. Well, there is one hero in our deck the has "I AM the DEATH of FINLEY" firmly etched into her chest...

 

INARI INARI

Inari. A lot of players say her special is a gimmick or a toy to be played with - not to be taken seriously. They agree her tile damage is good - Duh! This is just a glimpse. Full's don't occur all the time. Enough to be considered a 'game-changer' in my book.

We have a NEW Top-5

Following 4 periods of a steady Top-5, Ursena boots Alasie from position.

URS the Hearse has Arrived...

How far will she take it... after Dropping the mainstay Alasie?

This is Alasies 2nd drop from the Top since July 2018!

ZIM Hangs Tough!

Only 2 classics remain on the board, will costumes save them? My vote is in for Joon down the road perhaps 2 periods... and talk is that Lianna is going to be great!
Magni gets a fair representation in Wing position? Do the players have no better ICE options, then to hinder his D special?
Zim Hangs Tough! Only backing down a spot to the Queen Sniper Alasie.

Early Accpetance... for Two

Kingston gets a HUGE acceptance wave with a debut in the Top-15 at #8.

Finley takes the #5 spot in Left Wing - clearly he is a danger to all that do not own Mitsuko!

RaZoR's Classing Strategy: Revisited

Updated: Sept 29, 2019

Those of you who thought I was cRaZy... to propose and especially follow the classing strategy I outlined... well I did it. It took a hell of a lot of patience and waiting and scrimping. Well maybe I'm just a little bit cRaZy. From the time I started the endeavor through today - I have not run into a SINGLE player that attempted what I have. Every single LEGENDARY hero (27) that I own and use for anything had been first classed as of 09/20/19. Have I had enough time between then and now to identify if there is a noticeable difference in WAR results being every hero I use has their TALENT!? I do NOT know. NO would have to be my honest answer at this very moment. I don't have enough data to prove anything and I'm a busy guy. LOL. I can state i achieved a 6/6 and 5/6 1-shot back to back when every hero was 1st classed or higher. This is NOT a common result for me back to back.

 

PROBLEM: I love to raid! I completed my commitment to my Strategy. Which had me struggling hard when I was waiting to 1st class RANA whom was a very upsetting performer for me after a high $ summoning and speed leveling over Yunan for the AVG instead of SLOW speed. There is a reason I didn't hear much of her though she did on occasion surprise me or result in my death a couple times in raids. I was going to break down and call it quits - but I hung in there. She seemed to improve a wee bit 1st Classed, I think - still TBD.

My 1st classed Defense remained that way well into the period that class levels of Legendary heroes were averaging class 5-6 on Defense. My team held their own during that time period. They didn't show signs of weakness that many forecasted, nor did my raiding teams in general. Did my morning cups dwindle? Yes, however so were other players I talked with that were on the 'class the defense as high as possible' program. So that wasn't a cause/effect fact. I often raided teams classed 7 to 9 with my 1st classed team(s) successfully. Kage was the first to be classed higher than the class average. I opted out of Gimm early on the instant he went 4/80 (Kage was the rave at that time, still). Slowly I started increasing the class levels of my Raid Defense as preferable options did not exist. My Raid Defense has changed significantly since I started this project. I don't even use Kage except in WAR now and he is class level 9.

 

Some close friends suggested my shortcomings of ungodly hours raiding and not getting past #2 or #3 on the LEADERBOARD could have something to do with my classing. This wasn't always happening however, but often enough. For them emblems are used on 1 hero within a class for defense purposes. Unfortunately, my front line consists of 3 Wizards. I have opted to evenly spread the wealth between Hel, Guin and Hel #2. There has not been any indication to me, not even logically that it’s my Raid Defense. It is at bay while I'm actively raiding for the most part. Not suggesting their suggestion is not the viable answer. I recently began resetting some Legends and Epics that I felt were not up to my standards with the heroes I run them with. I'm always looking for an Edge. This defense suggestion has been firmly planted so my curiosity has pulled me into action - to find out - if my raid defense itself is affecting my offensive raiding specifically around the #1-#3 marker (or top-10 to top-20 after long raid periods). I've reached #1 a dozen times since - however with different Raid teams. Those specifically when the issue started have had to be benched after their short run of success. So, the variables are not constant in that respect. Just yesterday I spent a good 8 hours going at it and couldn't reach #1 with about 5 different raid teams... close but not #1.

 

27 Legends + 19 Epics = 43 War Classed Heroes with their Talents enabled

That provides for a solid team selection and POWER. Yes, I did class many Epics. Several to 7 or higher. Following is that list and what I've done since and/or plans for the near future:

- Boldtusk (16) Solid performer - revives and often. I will be taking him FULL eventually (sooner than later - as data mining indicates via GuiLDWare he is often on a winning strike force).

- Melendor (15). I reset him just days ago to bring my Zimkitha up to class 9 on my Defense. Wish that wasn't my only option as he is a great dispeller vs Aegir Tanks.

- Grimm (13) I reset him early on; soon as I got Kage to 4/80. Understand that Grimm was a test classing subject early on with BT and CC when v19 was released.

- Cheshire (13) I reset when I got Mitsuko to 4/80 - she got his emblems. Putting down my Cat was very hard to do! CC has been semi-restored to class 7 since. CC has been patient with me and will be going FULL eventually.

- Valeria (7). I will be taking her FULL sooner than later - she is my most prized Epic in terms of overall game play/enjoyment. She was at class 6 till recently. I finished Joon #2 yesterday so he and Rana may take precedence over Valeria for now.

- Rigard (6) I will take him full eventually, has proven valuable as an AOE healer - and is the most used Epic Healer in the LEADERBOARD, by double usually.

- Jackal (5) I personally only use Jack for D-down against Dark Titans, unless I'm in a pinch. Some swear by him and took him full. Even Full hes iffy for me. I'll focus on my dual Inaris, Marjana and Khiona.

- Caedmon (5) I reset early. At class 5, not comparable to CC, BT or Valeria IMO. During my EPIC play Caed was my prized hero & played him long into my LEGEND period (he was the last Epic to be replaced).

- Wilbur (3) I don't notice an improvement at this class level. He could be very impressive unclassed if he got to fire. May go higher or reset and give to Valeria/Joon/Rana.

- Hansel (3) Class level 3 doesn't do much for Hansel either, he seems to just die too quick. I'll be resetting to focus on further classing the Legends: Mother North, Ariel or Kunchen. These 3 make for a hard decision.

These Epics remain 1st Classed:
- Rigard #2 (1)
, Wilbur #2 (1), Boldtusk #2 (1).

These 1st Classed Epics were reset recently to further class my defense:
- Hansel #2 (1)
, Wu Kong (1), Cyprian (1), Boril (1), Kiril (1) and Kiril #2 (1)
    (I'm wizard heavy in Legends so these were for the extra bump needed by Ariel, Rana, Hel, Aegir and Inari #2).

I reset the following LEGENDS out of necessity:
- Zeline (1)
and Sartana (1)
    (to class either Hel, Hel #2 or Guin higher on my Defense very recently. So I can test the raiding hypothesis suggested).

I'm contemplating resetting the following Legends:
- Thoth-Amun (1) No change IMO 1st classed. This dog needs a 'rebalancing' IMO, and asap. See forum tread discussions.

- Ares (3) My disappointment with Ares set in long ago. I believe before or around when Delilah became the #1 TANK lol! Aeron was out then and was expected to take over. Yet it was Gravemaker who would displace her! Guinevere then stepped in and stripped it easily from GM. He would hold a tight #2 beside her for a long time. My complaints are primarily offensively - he dies quick and does relatively nothing for me on average except take up a spot. For E&Ps only full Metal head to toe warrior - he crumples like aluminum. I might try him on D before a reset. Just not sure that will be fitting I as well don't think he can hold a candle to Guin; though many say her time is over. I think Ares time was over long ago. I disagree on Guin - with her dual dark flanks Hel #1 and Hel #2 all 3 classed at level 3 - that partnership is holding well. Aegir is the only legitimate emblem recipient. This doesn't excite me, and he is already classed at level 4.

- Gregorian (1). I obtained Greg immediately at release with high hopes he would replace Elkanen. Elk was my nightmare. After SGGs 3rd 'rebalancing' act - Elk is acceptable. Greg didn't come close to the talk about him. Nor did he outperform Elkanen on my Defense. Today I'd take Elkanen over Greg, just for general purpose use. The reset would take Alasie up a class on my defense - or take Athena to class 2.

 

After satisfying some questions about Raiding Results, Morning Cups, the next several WAR performances and just plain and simple visible variances: positive or negative... I may go back and re-class Sartana and Zeline (hard to do so however being Hels and Guin could use the increase, to my knowledge). Then I would continue as I was, until WAR results indicate something negative. I have partially answered my question, I just need more WAR results and raid results to answer/back up my plausible theory of all heroes should be TALENTED for optimal performance overall. I hope this helped someone or is at least interesting. Realize the following with any of my personal hero performance comments: "The makeup of any given team and their specials can affect the value of your hero. Every hero in the game has a purpose. Some are obvious, some are not. Some are widespread others very niche (certainly we hope for the prior)" - from the Hero Utility: How to use this Utility. My undesired experience with a hero, which you may consider to be phenomenal - we just have different experiences, nothing more. Thanks. - RaZ

 

RaZoR's Classing Strategy

Posted: May 13, 2019

Updated: July 5, 2019 (My 1st and 2nd Class personal listings were adjusted)

Those without Legends your goals would be clear, and I will suggest these both for you and for Legendary players (just a perosonal listing):

 

FIRST CLASS (peronal listing)

Boldtusk, Rigard, Kiril, Grimm, Wilbur, Proteus, Buddy

 

SECOND CLASS or SPECIAL USE (peronal listing)

Valeria, Hansel, Wu-Kong, Jackal, Melendor, Sabina, Cheshire Cat

 

I have found Valeria post ‘balancing’ worthy for my purposes (and this game caters to Very Fast Heroes). Hansel has done decent for me. Special use: Wu-Kong for Titans (if you don't have Tarlak or Ranvir). Guardian Jackal for Dark Titans and potential MONO/3-2/4-1 teams of various types. Any of the AOE healers are great options, so include Melendor and Sabina (secondarily). CC (the Cat) was my TEST classing project - and has turned out for me to be a good Special use hero due to my lack of Sorcerers (Mits is 3/70, Thoth is cls1 and staying there).


My Strategy is Simple: It is based on Enabling Talent!

It is surprising how often a 3-6% chance fires...


Every hero should have their talent enabled for obvious reasons. Some Talents I agree are better than others. Those you consider worthless: that is a personal call. Revive is my favorite (and Evade has become my 2nd). If emblem collection efforts allow me, I will certainly push a favored talent over an un-favored during my classing per this strategy.


A) 1st Class every Legend I use regularly, in the order of use - as emblems allow.

B) 1st Class every Epic I use regularly, in the order of use - as emblems allow.

C) Further class Epics that have ‘special’ special skills to class level 7.

  • My Defense Team is 1st Classed.
  • My primary Raiding Teams are 1st Classed (or soon to be).
  • I have begun 1st Classing my primary War teams.
  • Legends again will not be classed beyond level 1, unless the emblems wouldn't be used otherwise.
  • This will continue until I’m done.
  • Should the field indicate Epics classed no longer compete with classed Legends (this is not matter of fact; it is to be determined over time) I would re-evaluate. This could be a very long time from now, perhaps not. At that point I should have enough resets saved up (I believe from steady war participation) that I can selectively reset my Epics of less value and move the emblems to my primary use Legends.


    Is this the correct strategy? I don’t know. I’m going to find out!


    Why did I choose class 7 as my EPIC target?
    It offers a fair % increase of the Talent being enabled as well a good marker to allow taking several to this level (as both emblems and time is limited for the goal) and I am 1st classing 20+ Legends. If I reach this mark across the board, I will certainly consider higher levels for those performing extraordinarily. Boldtusk has been such a hero to date.


    for example:
       Boldtusk 18% instead of 6%
       Grimm 18% instead of 6%
       Cheshire Cat 9% instead of 3%


    Most players appear to be classing their 'Defense' team as high as they can - with clear attempts at balanced classing (emblems allowing).


    Those of you without a strategy perhaps something to consider. Otherwise see you in what 3 months, 6 months, a year, a year and a half?


    Being I’m seeing classed 19 Epics already (a few) as well spotting Legends in the 9-12 range, Leaderboard access may be short lived for classed Epics. I'm shocked at the speed of leveling occurring even if it is semi-isolated, it is the Reality of it. The later range for Legends is a heap load of emblems within a single class to have obtained. It could be the timeline of Epic vs Legend classed heroes in terms of toe to toe capabilities, could be much shorter than expected.

    Class Leveling EPIC's?

    Brief including Examples: March 7, 2019

    Some have been curious what effect Class Leveling really has on your Hero's card/statistics. Those of you not willing to find out yet...

    Just look at some ole' favorites reborn (yes these are mine). BAD A#$ TUSK (cls 4) and KILLER GRIMM (cls 7). Look at their new talents in particular, their power (you knew this increased as well right?), attack, defense and health (I'm more concerned with getting the later 2 up for staying power) - click their pretty faces for a review.

    I understand waiting to see what happens... it's already happened. Funny in a sense just yesterday I was talking to a really good player who said they don't do the class quests, they aren't class leveling and have no plans to! I said "then you’re going to be in deep s#+@ in a couple months! You may as well pack up your account and go on a permanent E&P vacation."

    Some are weary to pull the Trigger... WHY? See the H.P.E.T. Report v3 for this Period in Review (2/17-3/6) and see what % of Top Players haven't Class Leveled.

    Should you Level EPIC's? Obviously if you’re an EPIC or newer player the answer is YES! I'm well into a LEGEND bench and I DID. Great new life into both these fellas and they did some wonders in the last WAR (3/6/19). I would advise you Class 1 level every hero you use on a very regular basis. You would be surprised how often a 3-6% chance goes off. Now do I use these guys on a very regular basis, no. I'm interested in the 'find out myself' approach (and already they are turning into something more valuable than I thought).

    The Hero Utility and Guild are a HUGE help to managing and theory crafting my roster ‐ a reason I make sure to do the collection tasks ASAP every time. I use it daily for the current features and look forward to the upcoming features, especially the War Planner. Thank you again @RaZoR

    Guildware is such a useful tool. Critical for my roster planning. I’ve saved mats and resources by focusing on heroes and emblem classes. Being able to see my roster all on one screen is awesome. The elemental grid helped me see what I need to prepare for the defenses we will see very soon.

    Thank you for letting me be a part of this wonderful tool you've created. It has continually helped me and those I talk with see the different perspectives without being a game and math guru. Some of the things you add are things that we as players talk about in generalities not knowing if it can come to fruition on an applicable basis in the game.

    Game Tips...

    • “TC20 (Training Camp) owners! Do you want to keep a revolving chance at a free Legendary Hero Indefinitely? Farm the heck out of Season One 8.7! The recruits are the key here and you get 8–10 for each 3 world energies! You don't get this anywhere else on average. It also gives you a fair return on swords, backpacks, heroes and troops to boot! Get to work!”
    • “Wanted Monsters Missions. Best way to zoom through this is Season One 7.4.
      There are 4 waves.
      4–5 monsters in waves 1–3. 2 bosses in wave 4. That is 14–17 monsters per 3 world energies. So 7 auto attacks will net you a completed monster mission! Sometimes it takes 8.”
    • “Hold on to your 4/5*'s as Small Giant Games can issue a 'Balance Change' in the future! As an example: Leonidas was a C and became a solid B Hero. Alternatively you can use them to build out your War team. Obviously focus on ascending A heroes 1st, then Bs. Some Cs have a purpose i.e. Kashhrek – solid A on defense and war defense.”
    • “Hero Grading. Compare 5s against 5s, 4s against 4s. Never assume a 4*A is better than a 5*B. Exceptions are a 4* A could be more effective than a 5* C/B- (They sure don't live longer though). A Fully ascended 4* can be stronger than a full 3rd ascension 5* (not always). Point here – ascension items for 4s are a walk in the park compared to 5*s... so be wise!"
    • “After completing a wanted mission (monsters/heroes) you can right click the chest and skip the 12hr wait for 20 gems! The closer you are to 0hrs the less gems it costs (there are skip limits). Why would you do this? To get to the GOOD STUFF QUICKER! Same with the Raid Chest guys.”
    • “Sometimes if not most or even all - it's a good idea to listen to those who came before you or are ahead of you in regards to farming. 8.7 - is my goto for low cost troops. 6.8 and 18.6 are highly recommended for mats (I got a bunch of nuggets at 18.6)”

    Off Element
    Feeding Costs

    A simple Little reminder...
    ...of the 16.7% cost variance when feeding heroes of the off element.
    Now stop reading if you don't want to get bummed out for a a few minutes. It's also a reminder of How lousy the return is on just about everything above a 2* off element or on - when you consider ALL methods required to obtain them. Not just ham, troops & materials. What did it cost you to obtain those!? How much TIME did it cost to obtain those? The waiting time, phone time, the actual on the board time, every scenario in which you are attacking (raid, titan, war, quest, events, etc.) these are rarely in the cost charts. Time in my opinion is the most expensive of them all. So be aware how you spend it playing our FAVORITE game!

    Merc Life

    "Being the Lone Wolf isn't easy, but it has it's perks... Such as total freedom - battling Titans when and where you want. The best thing to me is:

    Visiting Alliances

    4 Reasons I do so
    1) They need help killing a Titan or need a War substitute.

    2) 1+ I'm interested in finding out how they interact together. Perhaps a future Ally or even Alliance (and this would likely be mutual - likely a closed group)

    3) Stop in to see a friend
    (open or closed group)

    4) Passing by (open group) and act the random hero: walking in and out of their camp - idk to let go of a fudge dragon, ask which way is North, just say hi, or just park there and don't say anything no matter what!"

    Challenges

    Challenge Events are held monthly. During an event is your only opportunity to obtain the associated special heroes via the 'EVENT SUMMON'. While available your summoning odds increase as you can land a HOTM, a Legendary hero as well as the Special Event Heroes! So these are definitely worth saving your gems for.

    The Challenge Events:

    Riddles of Wonderland


    Pirates of Corellia


    Fables of Grimforest


    Guardians of Teltoc


    Knights of Avalon


    Four-fold advice:

    First - be stocked up on battle items if you want any chance to place in the top 4 ranking reward categories (and I mean stocked up). Otherwise, settle on just completing it with what you have. You will need something to help get you through the last level or two.

    Second - this should be very obvious. DO NOT bring a hero in that matches the events reflect element - unless you have no other choice! There is that rare case where one is such a great strategist that they can do so.

    Third - know who the Bosses and monsters are in each of the 10 levels so you plan appropriately with your battle items, hero team selection & placement from the beginning! Fortunately @Mariamne has documented this for us:

    CE Boss & Monster Map

    Fourth - this applies to the few - having a deep bench of fully or near fully ascended 4 and 5 star heroes of the opposing element (to the events reflect element) gives you the best odds of landing on the visible leader board! Honestly - any element other than the reflect element if you have the deep bench - the idea here is maximum damage! Logic will assist you after reviewing the map above.
