  • #2
    I'll post some actual squads when I'm not on my phone, but from a quick perusal I see that you don't have any single strong team.

    Your two best heroes are VV and the Chair. Problem with VV is pretty much the best dwarf in the game and the best dwarf team is dupes of VV. Like, BOghren isn't awful, but all of his groups (Dwarves, Blighted, Wardens) have better heroes.

    Chair is great because he's probably the best support in the game and though he only has 1 group, he fits into many of the top teams with his factions.

    Of the top of my head, the best metas in the game right now are Demons (THO, Kitties, Envy, TDT, POC), Spirits (DMalv, GOTS, SC), Elves (GOM, SC, Fen, ApSol, Inquisitors, THO) Red Lyrium (though that usually just means dupe RLBarts with Behemoth+Meredith's Key, but TEO is also a great hero and also fits with Blight and Tevinter) and Ferelden (Calenhad, ATG, Banner, Arcane Hawke and Great Dragon).

    I would try to run the Origins gauntlet. You could probably put together a decent drain team to complete it reliably: ADarkspawn, BOghren, Chair and Mother, all loaded with passive drain gear and health runes.

    You have none of the good mages, but I rarely even see the old favorite combo of Arcane Hawkes, Dorians and Chair with DMorrigan.

    Really, your best bet is Origins (drops Envy, POC, Kitty and Imshael, all some of the best demons; also drops Fen'Harel, Spirit Champion, Dragon Malvernis) and the new Commander Pack, which can drop TLI, who is a strong hero on his own and incredibly versatile, because he has some of the strongest groups: Elves, Inquisition and Seekers.

      I agree with Zanir post.
      I would fort and tier well Xenon and VV, they are your best heroes.
      I also agree that you shoud do some Origin gaunlet runs to improve your squads.
      Your best team is a quick one, I would use VV, VT, Briala and RJS to compete.
      Your best LC are gurn and malvernis dragon, I would keep malv dragon at the moment till you get a spirit squad.
      Other good LC is Behemoth, is very dangerous with the Meredith key gear.
      You also need a a demon squad for your Xenon and you can get them at Origins gaunlet.
      I only would use dwarves in a dwarf pvp, even if they aren't bad at all, they are too outdated, a good dwarf squad, Blighted ogren, Bhelen, VV, VT and Paragon Caridin/Cretal, I agree it is much better a x3 VV squad.

        Thanks Zanir and Grey Warden for your replies. I agree that the other dwarfs are rather meh after some runs with them.

        At the moment I'm clearing Origin gauntlet with VV, Chair, Bethany Hawke, Red Jenny Sera. With Northern hunter as the LC ( Though I feel my LC is the weakest link.) I have also gotten two kitties and an envy as drops so far. Would using them be better compared to my current team? Also, would my current team be able to compete in pvp?

        I was also thinking of running a nobility team, grey warden loghain, Arl teagan Guerrin, VV and chair. Any thoughts?

          You have the parts for a workable demon squad using Kitty, Envy, Xenon, and Baroness. You will eventually swap out Baroness for Imshael or a second Kitty or Envy from the Origins Gauntlet. If you're lucky you could also snag TDT or THO from a CP or GCP. You're lacking a great LC for them right now, but Gurn or even HO would work for a while until you grab a POC from Origins.

            Thanks for the tip Kidnova. I'll definitely start tiering kitty and envy after I'm done with chair / VV. I hope RNG is kind on me on origins gauntlet.

              Nice you got 2 kittys and envy, I think they are much better than your current squad, I would fort and tier them well.
              If you do some gaunlet runs you can get other kitty or envy and POC and complete your demon squad, I agree with Kidnova.
              I would continue using your current team and when you get kitty and POC, I would do them my main squad.
              I think you second setup isn't so powerful, Teagan matches better in a Ferelden squad with King Calenhad, Battlemasters, King Maric, Ferelden Banner and Teagan dupes.
              VT and Briala are quite useful, I think you should add them to your rogue squad if you don't have other VV or RJS dupe.

                Hey, I got another question now I got more drops. Atm I have 2 kitties, Gibbering Horror, Envy, Imshael, Xenon and POC for LC. Who should be in the squad? >.<

                Gibbering horror's crit chance increase seem pretty useful and he's quick. I have xenon fully tier-ed and forted but without buffs from demons he seem pretty paper in this squad. Imshael seems pretty neat when the enemy dies but he's so paper that he gets rekted early sometimes >.<.

                  For pure OP, dupe Kitties, Envy and I'd say GibHorror. Slap on speed/power runes, go to town.

                    I agree that Gib Horror is the best in most instances, but don't underestimate Xenon. Just because he doesn't get a specific buff from demons doesn't negate his usefulness. His 50% curse power resist, for instance, is very useful for Kitty squads who are susceptible to power curse from the Dalish Banner. If Kitties don't power up then they don't kill quickly which is almost guaranteed to result in a loss for a dupe Kitty squad. His power drain when enemies are hit and damage resist also give some survivability in the event your Kitties don't clear the board.

                    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:
