    Hello there!
    I started playing this game as soon as it launched, but i soon had to quit it due to time issues. Now i started it again... and there are soooo many changes (i left as soon as they introduced fortification...).

    I've looked on the forums but it seems there is neither updated tier list nor somekind of guide on what the best toons actually are, so i don't really have any idea on what team should i focus on.

    ATM i'm using a Blighted team with

    LC: The Mother (Mythic)
    Front Row: Larius - The Architect (Mythic)
    Back Row: The Lost - Blighted Zevran

    I also built an elven mage team for the events, composed by:

    LC: Wyld Sylvan
    Front Row: Merrill - Neria
    Back Row: Knight-Enchanter Helaine - Solas (Mythic)

    Which team should i focus on now? I don't really know what's in the meta now, and i've seen both groups were just revamped, so all the old discussions are almost useless now

    In case, my toons are:

    3*: The Mother (Mythic), Highland Ravager, Sandy Howler, Greater Mystral, Nothern Hunter, Fereldan Frostback, Vinsomer
    2*: Red Lyrium Giant, Paragon Caridin, Corrupted Spider Queen, Nuggalope, Behemoth, Broodmother, Cretahl
    1*: Snowy Wyvern, Risen Ogre, The Grand Oak, Leopold, Hybris, Orsino the Reaper, Queen of the Blackmarsh, High Dragon, Giant, Nightmare Aspect, Snug the Bronto, Wyld Sylvan, Great Bear, Golden Halla

    3*: Solas (Mythic), Magister Dorian
    2*: The Architect (Mythic), Keeper Marethari, Merrill, Neria, Shianni, Vaea, Argent, Sera, Lyrium Fenris, Lord Pyral Harrowmont, Warden-Commander Duncan, Sandal, King Alistair, Vengeance Anders
    1*: Blighted Zevran, Larius, The Lost, Isabela, Guard Captain Aveline, Grand Enchanter Fiona, Sister Nightingale, Flemeth, Morrigan, Wynne, Knight-Enchanter Helaine, Eirik, The Baroness, Sky Watcher, Archivist, Sky Cultist, Ritts, August Ram, Fairbanks, Ser Wesley Vallen, Maryden, Nug King, Ser Jory, Loyal Betyar, MAcrinus, Beraht, Tamar, Lord Woolsley, Thane Svarah Sun-Hair, Katari, Ser Pounce-A-Lot, High Seeker Aldreb, Arle Eamon Guerrin, Prince Bhelen Aeducan, Uldred, Captain Cullen, Ben-Hassrath, Tallis, King Endrin Aeducan, Arlathan General, Shah Wyrd, Varric Tethras.

    Any tips will be welcome. Thanks!

    Hello and welcome back!
    You need to get better heroes. And don’t worry it’s not that hard.
    Test with your current team to play some gauntlet quests.
    Play gauntlet metas up to node 6, to get shales. Play up to node 6, quit and repeat.
    Another good toon to get is Scout Harding (SH). She drops at civil war gauntlet node 4. Focus on those quests first. When you have some shales and SH you can try to reach further in the Metas gauntlet, node 16 drops Advisor Cullen and Advisor Leliana, node 18 drops top Meta toons jerrik and Brogan dace.
    When you a can reach and manage this node, it should be focus 1 for you.

    You have Paragon Caradrin ( PC). It’s a good LC to use with dwarves and shales. He is also good with daces later on, so that’s a LC you can begin to focus on too.
    White Dalily quest drops Lady seeker Cassandra, another great toon to have.
    If you are low level, you can use xp runes and purple keys in the banished planes nexus quest to level up toons and your own level faster.
    You have some of the newly revamped toons, shianni, lyrium fenris. Maryden is good with inquisition teams, dwarves hasn’t been nerfed yet and they can wear stealth gear, so they can also be a help for you in your progress.

    Start with that and don’t be afraid to ask for more help if you need

      Hi! Welcome back to the game. This little tool will help you get an idea of what heroes are in the game now and such:

      trattslak gave you some good advice for a quick inq squad, I use them too and they're very good with the right gear and marius. You can also get ariane to try with your updated lyrium fenris and shianni, I think from soldier packs or running the first few nodes of the lonely path gauntlet (she's a pretty common drop, I got 3 just from the gauntlet). She's kind of like SH for elves, with more powergain.

        Thanks for the answers guys!
        I tried (with bad luck at the moment) to start dropping shales now. How should I arrange them when i get them?
        I also started buffing paragon Caridin, hope i'll stay with him for a long time...

          This is a luck based game, sometimes it’s tiresome to grind same maps over and over again, but sooner or later you will get a good drop.

          I usually have the faster ones in back row, to maximize their 2x chance.
          Don’t worry caradin is a great dwarven/warrior LC. He can also equip stealth gear which can be very important.
          You’re gonna find very good tips for getting and equipping shales in this thread:

          Just keep going, your team will get stronger, you rise levels, and soon you get good drops that will help you to progress further.

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.

          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
          EA TOS German
          EA TOS Russian
          EA TOS Spanish

          By registering and posting on these forums, you agree to be bound to the rules and disciplinary actions set forth above.
