  • Team Comp Help (Newbie)

    Hello HoDA Community!

    I've been playing this game for quite a while now (a few months, honestly) but I really feel like my team comp is kind of... lackluster. I'm still not able to do the highest difficulty in any event and get really terrible results concerning PvP, never going past the top 8k, albeit having a (in my limited sight of things) optimized and synergetic legendary/mythic team. I know its a lot to read and its probably quite much to ask, coming from a new member, but can an experienced player (or players..) suggest me the best possible team comps for the heroes I own? I'll list them below, I don't own that many. Also please excuse any screwed up names, since english isn't my native language and neither is my game english.

    3* : Advisor Cullen, Revenant Gurd, Xenon the Antiquary
    2* : Dragon Flemeth, Beast of the Tellari Swamps, Paragon Caridin, Gordian, Naishe, Ketojan, Commander Clarel, Warden Genevieve, Spirit Champion, Cilian
    1* : Vengeance Anders, Morrigan (Twice), Tallis, Hissera, Spirit of Hope, Spirit of Justinia, Rion, Demon of Despair, Sky Watcher, Lord Woolsey, Prof Bram Kenric, Krem, Ser Berlinda Darrow, Hakkonite-Archeress, Paragon Branka, Ritts, Shianni, Kitty, Commander Duncan, Saarebas, Viddasala, Grey Warden Sigrun, Ser Stroud, King Alistair, Red Lyrium Meredith, Librarian, Leopold, Snug the Bronto, Aspect of the Nightmare, Harvester Orsino, High Dragon and Every version of Shale.

    At this point thanks for reading through all this. I really know nothing about the theoretic aspects of battle (for example whether a "split team" as in lets say gurd, the hakkonite archer and 2 mages are viable). I've quite a bunch of legendary equips laying around, since I was too scared to equip them to anyone except my team to not waste them...
    Current team setup is Gordian & Morrigan (Mythic, yea I know, but she was my best character for the first weeks..) in the front row, Beast of the Tellari Swamps (Mythic) and Vengeance Anders in the Back. Giant is Dragon Flemeth. For any Advice or even better one or multiple viable team comps for different situations I'd be really thankful!

    Kind regards

    Well, I think you have 2 possible groupings that I would work up.

    Demons-
    Lord Wols, Kitty, Revenant Gurd, Harvester Orsino.. and use Xenon for the 5th.
    You could place LIbrarian in there but long term value on LIbrarian isn't great to me.

    and Qunari-
    Naishe, Sarebaas, Viddasla, Ketojan and use Dragon Flemeth.
    Alternatively you can mix in Hissera.. or Tallis though I think Naishe and Sarebaas are strongest out of your Qunari.

    Noteworthy (to me) heroes you have are:
    Revenant Gurd
    Xenon (great defense and fits any group)
    Spirit Champion
    Kitty
    Beast of the T Swamps
    Ser Belinda Darrow (But recommend to build her later when you wish to make a Templar group)

    The first 5 i named as noteworthy in my opinion should be your higher priority to build.
    ... and then there's MARYDEN (the forgotten ONE).

      First of all thanks a lot for your reply! I went ahead and built the qunari team an so far it works out great! But I have a few questions if thats okay =)
      - I've put Naishe and Saarebas in the Back Row and Ketojan and Viddasala in the front, since Saarebas attacks all and Naishe attacks twice. Is that correct?
      - Why should I go with Viddasala and Saarebas over Tallis/Hissera?
      - Which Heroes do I lack for a viable mage team?
      - Since I already own a Hakkonite Archer, Would Gurd + Archer + Xenon + A fourth Hakkonite (legendary) make a viable team? Well, of course in Combination with Hakkon Wintersbreath.
      - By the way, where do large Creatures actually drop? I've seen every dragon from inquisition ingame, can you actually farm them somewhere, or do they only come in Champion packs?

      EDIT: How do I layout the demon team? Xenon im the Front I assume? Kitty and Gurd in the Back?

      Kind Regards

        Forget about Jaws of Hakkon. You already have their 2 best heroes. Best Hakkonite team is probably Gurd and 3 Archers, or 4x Archers + Hakkon. Getting Hakkon is far odds. I don't even know if he's in the BP catalog.

        Qunari in general fall behind as a group. Therealpill forgot to stress that your best possible team is the demons.

        LC: Orsino (this team composition will favor more health over power, so Orsino over Nightmare Aspect for now, but don't throw the Aspect away just yet)
        FR: Xenon & Gurd (slow tanks in front, load them up with passive drain and defender gear)
        BR: Woolsley and Kitty for extra crit chance, also because Kitty is quick round and Woolsley is normal round AOE

        I would also say that you have another team that's better than the qunari. You have Clarel, who is pretty much the best, or at worst second best Warden in the game. You also have Genevieve, a good defender with some nice Warden buffs. Add Ser Stroud and Sigrun and DFlemeth for LC. It's not the best possible Warden team, ofc, and Wardens aren't very strong as a group in the game, but imo they're better than Qunari. The last decent qunari released was Hissera, and she works better in Inquisition sqauds or in dupes or herself.

        Your two best heroes are Kitty and Xenon, build them before anyone else.

        You also have 2 very good Spirits, Spirit Champion and Spirit of Faith, but you don't have anyone else good enough to build a spirit team. Once you build up your demons, try the Origins gauntlet. It has a chance to drop Spirit Champion and Evangeline. 2x SC, SoF and Eva would make a good spirit team. But for now, your best bet is demons.

          Well... as I said.. based on what you have.. that is what I would work on. It's preferences at the end of the day.
          It's true Qunari are considered non-meta currently however it's pretty good synergy considering your roster. Hissera is a great hero but I find I acutally don't use her as often as I would like.. maybe since my catalogue of heroes is nearly complete (i am only missing Garahel). I find the other qunari you have much more reliable. Play around with them and see which you prefer. Hissera's strength is her negative stun aura and her ability to power up (dmg converted to power) but usually she never makes it to 2nd round.. at least in PVP.. in nexus maps maybe she is okay. I think your Qunari team can get you further through some of the nexus maps.

          I actually would reverse it.. and put Naishe and Saarebas up front.. and Viddasla and Ketojan back row. I think Naishe could use the extra health from front row and Sarebas is decently tanky. Ketojan doesn't fit as well in the group but I chose him since I like his reliablity. Viddasala has beneficial auras.. fires off quick round and I favor her over Hissera since she is a row hitter. Attack all hitters can be detrimental and proc drain from enemies (such as Hakkonite Archer). Hakkonite archer is great initially to get you going but her long term value decreases for me. Viddasala on the other hand when well forted in power can be pretty good. I have always liked her. This is all based on what you have currently. As you develop and acquire more heroes you will replace some of these heroes of course. And of course it's all preferences.. you can choose Tallis if you like but I just recommended based on what I would do with what you have.


          For a viable mage team.. I would look for elves or ferelden or seekers... inquistion.

          I have 3 Hissera built up.. 2 of which are fully mythic forted... and Hakkonite archer.. i made 1 mythic.. with mythic power forts.. the other 2 are T4 leg forts.. and only legendary. I have a 4th Hakkonite archer which I decided to fort away. Both are not amazing to me.. there are better attack all quick round heroes out there. Build em and use em for now if you like.. I just don't like their long term value myself.


          Large Creatures can be gotten from Guantlet Origins.. or yellow key Giants Nexus. THere is also the Nature nexus but that just passed. ANother way is to farm gold and buy Soldier packs alot. Or fight for one in PVP.

          Good luck~! and ask away if you have more questions~!

            Hello!

            Thank you again for your answers! I really don't wanna annoy you guys but I went with the demons now, could you give me some advice for equipment too please? Some of the Heroes already have some stuff equipped (please dont judge me for those, did that months before asking here..)
            Anyway, I have:
            Mythic: Paragon Leg Bracers (? Not sure how to translate those, they make you attack the back row more), Orb of Obliteration (from the new event), Ornate Kirkwall Shield, 3x Alchemic Mixture

            Legendary: Spellbook of the Elder One, Stroud's Shield, Skywatcher's Cleaver, Staff of the Leading Warden, 3x Mace of the Honorable Protector, Mageslayer, Staff of the Grand Enchanter, Fadesplitter (? Sword that does 10% against blue, +5 when eq by a templar), 2x Cobra Crown, Bloodline

            Epic: 2x Warm Orb, Many Warden Tower Shields, Many Tacitus' Mace, 2x Ancient Warden Crossbow, some Stuff that goes only on templars and isnt important right now.
            Additionally there is some yellow stuff, staff of corruption, Earnests Rage, memory medaillon would probably the most noteworthy. Anyway, my team currently has equipped..

            Xenon: Stroud's Shield, Wedge of Destiny, 2 Free slots
            Gurd: Heritage (thats the english name I think, epic +8% strength mace), Mace of the Barbarian Lord, Strouds Shield, Dawn
            Lord Woolsey: Nothing, 4 free slots
            Kitty: also 4 Free slots.

            Is any of my stuff worth equipping to them? I dont want to waste them either, since I cant remove them. Thanks again for reading and your advice in advance!

            Kind Regards,

            Cass

              It's all good my friend, ask away~!
              Nobody is annoyed.. I can be pretty blunt sometimes.. maybe it comes across rough through text.

              To help you I would try using the website http://www.hodacodex.com/en/
              It lists all the gears and heroes in different languages.. hopefully one of the languages is yours but you can check the english naming there.

              Xenon- go for gears that share benefits to allies.. the 2 you picked are fine.
              For Kitty - Orb of Destruction is a good idea. Generally I gear Kitty with high dmg and crit gears.

              Generally whenever i play a new game that involves PVP i usually check other player's setups and gears to get an idea. The ones I see most common I usually copy. But you can also experiment for yourself. Gears lower than legendary drop often enough so you can worry less about the risk with lower rarity.

                Howdy Cass,

                If you haven't already i would look into joining a guild like OG, OL, F2P, etc... there are quite a number of larger guilds that can give you really solid advice on how to build teams and gear them efficiently. Look in the top 50 guilds and apply to one. Most use alternate apps to chat that are a lot more efficient than the forums. And not trying to say don't use forum to ask for help at all. Forum is just a little more difficult to use and you won't get advice as quickly as you could in an alternate setting. You have a very solid base of toons and could go a long way with the right team. If you are already getting 8k in pvp events you are clearly doing something right. :-)

                Also... Cosby taught me pretty much everything when i started so you are in good hands with his advice.

                Cheers,

                Taco Shooter

                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.
