  • Squad advice for new player (F2P)

    Hey all - just started playing this over the holidays, got to level 162 and would appreciate some guidance on best squad to run + heroes to focus on getting (e.g. which events/packs) in context of my roster: www.hodacodex.com?heroes=BBAvCR

    I run mostly a dwarf squad at the moment:
    LC: Hunterhorn Shrike
    FR: Korbin, Grey Warden Oghren
    BR: Dagna, Phantasmal Shadow

    Depending on events I'll swap Dagna for Janeka and Korbin for Riordan to get black faction bonuses etc.

    They are all IV and fortified with epics, which is good enough for clearing quest events on at least very hard without runes. I feel like fortifying with legendaries would allow a step up to the next level, but not sure which (if any) of my current heroes are worth the investment.

    Thanks in advance for any guidance / thoughts!

    Welcome to HoDA Maweras!

    I am sorry but you should improve your roster, most of your toons are outdated, only the dragon is really good and maybe Korbin and PW for some setups, but you will have difficulties with some pvps, nexus and gaunlets with your current team.
    I only would fort well the dragon.
    The currently meta are advisors with the new dragon and shales, so you should try to get an advisors squad because it's more difficult to get shales.
    Josie and Advisor Cullen, both are a Metas gaunlet drop, you can also can get Josie opening 1500 gold packs, you will get good toons there too even if takes time to get her.
    You can get Scout Harding playing Civil War gaunlet, it's a drop in node 4, so you only need to repeat this node several times and there is no need to pass this gaunlet all the times.
    You can also get there good rogues as Advisor Leliana or Viscount Varric and useful toons as Xenon and Lady Seeker Cassandra, you will need them for several team combinations.
    Besides you can get Fereldan banner that match well in lots of team setups.
    This week you can benefit from Inquisition nexus and get a good advisors team, this nexus drops Advisor Cullen and Harding, so I recommend you to farm Inquisition nexus and the next week start to do some Metas runs to improve your team.
    I recommend you to save your gems and only open a NRP if you really need the hero, don't open CP/GCP if you don't have most of the heroes, they are good to get dupes, but not for getting a need toon.
    Another thing I recommend you, it's to save better gear and mythic wisps for you best heroes.
    About forts, you should fort your main team with T4 mythic wisps as the dragon, it's very easy to get giant wisps playing LC nexus wisp.
    If you get advisors or shales, they should be T4 mythic.
    With your epic fort you only could win few and weak teams and you couldn't pass some gaunlets or nexus with a higher difficulty.
    If you have any doubt, you can ask me.

    Good luck!

      Hey there, welcome to HODA! Glad to see you’ve decided to join the community here as well. Looks like you have some excellent advice here, only thing I’d add is run Western Approach while you can this week. Build some gems in the maps and use them to refill during the discount. Try the Red side for good gear and recently revamped and improved RL heroes. On the other side you can get some excellent inquisition drops as well, so consider running both. This won’t get you to meta, but can help improve your roster well. Also, the best way I always recommend to improve fast is get in a good guild with players like yourself. As an F2P, I’d be happy to welcome you into our guild family “Top F2P”. We”re players like you who enjoy the game and benefit from having nearly 250 members finding new strategies all the time. If the big guild thing isn’t for you I can offer recommendations for others that will fit you as well. Feel free to PM me if you are interested in either, and again, welcome to the forum!

        Doesn't the new pack say that Xenon is unobtainable outside of it?

          I got Xenon dupes at Metas, unless drops have changed.

            Really good advice, thanks both Grey Warden and Odesius. I managed to pick up Scout Harding, with leg. fortify and a couple of runes too that means I can now run events on Ludicrous (she one-shots most things). Didn't get any other advisors yet but picked up 3* Vivienne and Ghost of the Spire - either any good?

              No, I am sorry but both are outdated and need a revamp.
              Scout Harding is a great toon and it's worth having dupes.
              You can also get AC doing some Inquisition nexus runs and Josie opening soldier packs.

                I am currently about a week into this game I thought I had a decent Inquisition Squad however I've been doing the main quest and I am stuck. I cannot defeat Open Veins Master Level 8 versus the Horror OF team. I keep using a combination of an inquisition team consisting of night enchanter Vivienne ,Inquisitor ameridan, Scout Harding, Young Cassandra, Thom Rainer, Dagna, Bianca. Or some combination of those mentioned characters above but I usually always have Knight enchanter Vivienne and Inquisitor ameridan as my anchors. I can't survive past two rounds I have all the stated characters at Mythic level and fully maxed on their levels but I don't have them completely maxed out on there level consumption. There two times hit percentage is 25% a piece. Is there another team that I should use any advice would be well-received.

                  Hi, welcome to HoDA!

                  What are you playing? Current pvp, map quests, any weekly nexus?

                  Maybe it's too soon to test some game modes, you need to get a better squad, most of you heroes are old and don't work well against better teams or in a tougher nexus or map quest.
                  Your best hero is Scout Harding, Inquisition Ameridan and Thom Rainier can be good for some pvps, but the other ones are very outdated, only work well with a high bonus.
                  You should tier and fort well Scout Harding, she should be T4 mythic.
                  I recommend you to open some soldier packs and try to get Josie and Josie dupes.
                  If you get enough gems buy the new dragon, Shriek, opening 1 NRP if you are lucky, if not 2, it will help you a lot.
                  And other thing you can do is do gaunlet Metas runs to improve your squad, no problem if you don't complete it at first, every node has different drops and you can get good heroes anyway.
                  The best heroes are advisors and shales, you need to get a full team if you can.
                  If your heroes aren't well tiered and forted, T4 mythic and with the right gear, they will not work well most of times.

                  Good luck!

                    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:
