        The venatori revamps are going to be great if THE ELDER ONE is involved, I feel like he is so underpowered in HoDA whereas in the games he is immortal and even god like, this is unrealistic. It would be great if you devs could give him a revamp. Considering his massive influence in Thedas and the fact that irrelevant characters like brogan and Jerrik dace (who do not feature in more than one side quest), sera and Harding (to some extent) and most of the dwarves are overpowered; he should be in the META alongside them. thank you to anyone reading or considering what I am saying and I can’t wait for these revamps!!!

          As long as he is balanced and doesn't become what daces have been for months... Having more meta teams sounds great, and perhaps one day we can play Heroes of Dragon Age and not Dwarves of dragon age ?

              I think there was going to be a wardens update later this year.

                The Elder One is not up for a revamp, but pretty much every other Venatori in the game is... which should significantly help TEO. His biggest problem is not having the proper support he needs, so with everything else getting revamped, the squad as a whole should work out pretty well.

                    I would argue that TEO absolutely has a good supporting cast, just not from the Ven. In the right setups, with the right gear, TEO can be incredibly good in Blighted squads. The recent Blighted gear releases have helped this a lot.

                    But I also think TEO himself is underperforming. He should make a Blighted squad great, not the squad holding him up. He should make a RL squad great, not the squad holding him up. He should make a Ven squad great, not the squad holding him up.

                    Strictly in terms of lore, across all installments of the franchise, he is arguably the single most important character.
                    Fen might join him in this conversation, but that's about it. And yet TEO has never held his rightful place, in this caliber, in HoDA.

                      What would be of FH without arianes? And Jerrik Dace without Brogan and THG? Most toons aren't good by themselves, they need a team. Except Josie because she can 4x and laugh at everyone else. TEO is good with blighted or rl teams' support, and he will be with venatoris (let's see how much)

                        Since you ask...

                        Fen owned this game for months and months when he was released. 4x squads, and 3x with SoF.

                        JD is arguably better in 3x or 4x dupes and has no need for BD. Also works just fine with pretty much any of the Dwarven LCs.

                        Even in those Blighted setups where TEO is good, it's not so much TEO directly that's making the squad good, it's the other toons. TEO is in fact probably one of the more replaceable toons in the setup.

                        Edit to add:
                        I'm not saying I want some massively overpowered TEO that is unstoppable as a 4x squad. But the various iterations of him that we've had (he's undergone a couple revamps already) have all been somewhat lackluster and underwhelming in my opinion.

                          Yeah agreed, TEO had a few revamps and was even good for some time with Tev. Flag setups (but even then he was quite beatable), but ever since the newer toons got introduced he immediately became obsolete just as much as the whole blighted group...

                          To be honest, if only his old power (i can't remember, around 12k or so?) didn't get nerfed he might've been somewhat useful with the new gear available, but in the current state he is as already stated, rather underwhelming, which certainly doesn't fit the lore aspect at all.

                            Alright, your got a point ^^. I wasn't there when fh was launched so i can only talk about fh+aris. About JD yeah, this little man is really strong.

                              Perhaps, but the fight against The Elder One himself is woefully lacking. It's only when he's surrounded by his armies that he's truly difficult to defeat - which is why the Inquisition seeks to dismantle his armies first. TEO shouldn't actually be "best" in a Blighted squad - although he himself is Blighted, we don't really see him using the darkspawn. His armies are the Red Templars and the Venatori, so we want to reflect that better here in HoDA. If his currently "best" use is within a Blighted squad, we need to look at Red Lyrium and Venatori instead to make them better. And before you say "but his auras", I know. Considering how many heroes that are being revamped in this update, TEO simply did not make the cut, since, as you've pointed out, he's already been revamped a number of times.

                              The Venatori have all - across the board - been underwhelming since their release. Because of this, there's really no support for each other or for TEO to allow his abilities to work well. We're revamping the entire Venatori group. Except for TEO, Gereon, and Lord Erimond, who all have reasonable cards already - although their stats will be adjusted to conform to the guidelines.

                              Also, get it out of your systems now - TEO was outside of guidelines, but very slightly, and he's getting a very small reduction - although we are putting him at the very top of the values in his stat class.

                              On the flip side, DoTEO is getting the Venatori group added, to be able to take advantage of the new auras that will be coming with the Venatori group.

                              All inquiries regarding Customer Support should be routed through the online web portal for support. The Community Manager and Moderators are unable to assist with inquiries regarding support tickets. Posting your ticket number and requesting assistance on the forums will result in the post being deleted. Sending a Private Message to the Community Manager or Moderators about CSR Inquiries is not to be tolerated, and will be ignored.

                              Additionally, all interactions with Customer Support are considered confidential, and all issues are handled on a case-by-case basis. As such, posts containing transcripts or results of your interactions with Customer Support will be edited or deleted. Keep in mind that your friend's case may not be exactly like your case, so the results of your request may differ from the results of your friend. Customer Support will not discuss the details of any player's case with any other player, but will provide support to you under our established, confidential policies. Asking why your request was resolved differently than another player will result in your post being deleted.

                              Violation of these terms is grounds for removal from EA Capital Games games.


                              What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
                              It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                              To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:


                              What happens if I break the rules?
                              At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Lead Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                              Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                              For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                              Posting Suggestions
                              In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                              1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion. Keep in mind that in most cases, posts are not intended to offend. If you find yourself taking offense at a post, take a step back and contact the person directly, or appeal to a moderator for arbitration. Don't make the situation worse by posting in anger and lashing out at the original poster. Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                              2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section under the appropriate heading.

                              3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available. Additionally, before posting a bug, check the Known Issues thread to quickly see if the staff is already aware, and to find the discussion thread about that issue.

                              4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                              5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum and/or game.

                              6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                              7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.
