  • Black Faction Insane - give up or keep going?

    I'm pretty new to the game, and just attempted Black Faction on Insane because the first fight showed as easy for my usual team of Queen of the Blackmarsh II + Vengeance Anders IV + Wynne III + Noble Spirit of Hope II + Guardian of the Urn IV. And indeed, the first fight went fine - but now the second one is saying it'll be hard, and everything I've tried so far in terms of mythic runes (power, power drain, health) and other potential teams hasn't even knocked it down to medium. Should I finish tiering up this team for it? Develop another team? Try different runes? Or just cut my losses and go back to very hard?



    Here are my other options:

    Titan Heart Guardian III
    Nuggalope
    Harvester Orsino
    Golden Halla
    Phoenix
    High Dragon

    Dalish Banner IV
    Templar Banner II
    The Architect II
    Plaideweave Vivienne
    Sidony (x2)
    Macrinus III (+2 at tier I)
    The Lost III (+3 at tier I)
    Maddox
    Ariane III
    Grand Enchanter Fiona II
    Red Lyrium Bartrand
    Grey Warden Oghren II
    Red Lyrium Nug
    Larius
    The Messenger (x2)
    The Seeker (x3)
    Apostate Jowan III
    Leandra Amell
    Carver Hawke
    Emerald Shale
    Krem
    Prince Sebastian Vael
    Prince Bhelen Aeducan
    Sandal
    Ritts
    Tamassran II
    Ser Belinda Darrow II (+4 at tier I)
    Guard Captain Aveline (x3)
    Sister Nightingale
    Isabela III
    Varric Tethras II (+1 at tier I)
    Viddasala
    Crow Zevran
    Loyal Betyar, Dragonslayer (x4)
    Katari (x3)
    Flemeth II (+1 at tier I)
    Morrigan (x2)

    You should take it easy and don't obsess about not passing a certain map. They change fast so you just need to complete all the maps you can at the highest difficulty possible, and event you'll find yours with a good amount of toons.
    Right now you don't have enough toons to make a solid team (the one you're using is the best i can think, maybe also dwarves).
    You should aim to level as much as possible (to have more energy) in events such as Blue Key or Purple Key, get as many toons as possible and play pvps to get gems and gear. Once you have more toons everything will be easier.
    Ps: maybe try to make a list of your toons in hodacodex.com and keep it updated, it's really helpful for the ones trying to suggest you teams
    Edit: I also hope you're enjoying the game, feel free to ask anything else here or in the community discord :P
    Edit 2: Calpernias are arguably the best team at the moment and they drop at Lonely Path node 8. If you can pass node 7 (that's the hardest one iirc, maybe it's too early) and farm them you will have a team that works amazingly in both pve and pvp.

      Don't forget to Fortify and gear your team. Even Epic forts help.
      I would suggest saving the harder to acquire (green / purple) gear for later, when you have a cohesive team.

      Taking over a thread by posting excessively off-topic is not allowed. Off-Topic posts and any responses will be moved to their own, new thread if possible, or else deleted.


      Political Posting

The Community Manager and Moderators are unable to assist with inquiries regarding support tickets.

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.

      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.
