  • Returning Played (Team building/nexus help)

    Hi returned to the game recently and looking to get back into things. Seem to be able to manage pvps reasonably well with a lot of skipping, and can manage a fair amount of insane level quests. Looking to build some well structured teams, I seem to be lacking in building any solid hard hitting teams. Hopefully looking to start grinding the nexus but seem to be struggling, so if anyone can give some recommendations for how best to utilise who I have, or who to focus on toming or leveling thatd be great.
    I have tried looking through the guides but seemed to struggle with building a team with a solid focus and maximising bonus's etc

    Sorry for the long post ahead, if theres any I should just get rid of or use for forting let me know. I have plenty of lower tier toons to use for consuming/forting. But any other advice anyone can throw my way would be greatly appreciated. Or any advice on how to focus on getting the best toons thatd be appreciated.

    Hi, welcome back to HoDA.
    I see your best toons are mages, I would tier them up and for well, Solas, MG, Shianni/Briala and Shartan would be a pretty good main team.
    Bethany and Janeka are great heroes but you don't have a solid setup for them, I will try to get some BP to improve your main team,you can get Clarel, TLI, RJS or Ap Solas and your Warden/elven mage squad will be much better.
    You have pretty good qunaris too, you have the triumvirate, I will use them these pvps, Sten Ariqun, Arigena, IB/Hissera are a great team.
    You can also use a quick qunari squad 2 Hisseras, Naishe, Ariqun work pretty well too, it depends on your strategy.
    Arvaarad and Ketojan are also good if you have 2 Arvaarads and 2 Ketojans.
    Other team that I would build is: Bethany, Solas, Hissera, Wintersend Cullen/guardian of the Urn.
    Briala, Charter, Hissera and Shianni are your best rogue squad, I will tier and fort them too and I will try them with AL.
    You should climb the leaderboard to get more tomes, BP and wisps to improve your team.
    Demons (kitty,gibbering, TDT, POC) are awesome, you should get them if you have the occasion.
    You can also use Tevinter bannner in your setups to attack first.
    Heroes that you should get: LSC, TLI, AI, Sof, Xenon, MD,ND, VV, RJS, SC, GoTS, ATG, KC and banners they are pretty good and have a lot of combinations.
    I would not use your tomes, there are much better heroes and I would save them.
    I would also benefit from revamped nexuses and I would do several runs to get better toons, wisps and gear and you will tiar up and fort your toons quicker too.
    I would use my gems if the heroe is really worth for your team.

    If you have some doubt you can ask me

    Good luck!

        You are welcome
        If you can't climb all the leaderboards try to get more nexus runs to improve your squad.
        It is also a good idea to be in a guild, you will get extra prices and gems all guild wars.

          Woo managed to snag some more legendaries over the last couple of days, not sure if any of them are worth adding to the team?
          Apostate Jowan - free login reward
          3* - The Mother
          2* - Duke Cyril
          Red Lyrium Iron Bull
          1* - Beraht
          Red Lyrium Meredith

          I have tried looking for a guide on team building and understanding auras/bonus' but I seem to be missing how to pieces a strong team together.

            The mother will be your go to hero for blighted.

            RL Iron Bull is handy for RL non dupe teams together with Samson & RLM(but samson & RLM is easily replaced with any newer RL)

            Haven't seen Cyril much, so I suspect he's found wanting.
            same for:

            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 Sr 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.
            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.

            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.

            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.

            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.

            In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:

            EA TOS English
            EA TOS French
