  • ...yet another humble request for roster advice

    Hi all,

    I've been playing for a few months now, and I've managed to accumulate a pretty large number of fairly mediocre legendaries, with a few actually good ones thrown in. I'm at the point where I'm completely bewildered as to which ones to focus on tiering and levelling, and of course how to optimize synergies for teams. Also, I'm not sure what the most efficient path is to acquire better toons (my teams aren't quite strong enough to seriously compete in PVP, and though I can finish the Origins Gaunlet, I can only get to about node 17 on Civil War). I spent a few bucks on gems due to an iTunes gift card kicking around, but othersise FTP. I've linked my HODA Codex for complete roster info (there are lots!). http://www.hodacodex.com/en/?heroes=WWZ1ae

    Teams that I've run or am running:
    Druffalo, AM Hawke, AG Hawke, Carver Hawke, SA Hawke
    Behemoth, Rasaan, Arigena, Sten, Naishe
    Ogre Comm, Rev Gurd, Ishmael, Elder One, Highest One
    GoM, Charter, Ritts, Inquisitor Ameridan, LS Cassandra
    Behemoth, RL Samson x2, RL Blackwall, Elder One
    Dragon Flem, Rev Gurd, Gereon Alexius, Elder One, Highest One
    Dragon Flem, Gereon Alexius, Maevaris, Erasthenes, Elder One

    ... I feel like I'm making a bit of a hash of my possible combinations here. There has to be something better! In particular, for getting further in Civil War... (granted, I haven't been able to tier and level properly, let alone fort properly).

    I trust in your wisdom! Any advice would be most appreciated. Thanks!
    You can sort and filter at will and compose the perfect team to face all the challenges of the game

    Civil War takes 200 energy to complete.
    Origins is 75...
    The pay out.. rewards and what not are much better in Origins.
    And if you weren't already aware.. every node in Origins can potentially drop a Tome.

    The big heroes you would certainly want to go for are:

    Fen H'arel
    Envy Demon

    Other than for achievement and gaining Qunari Defender... Civil War can wait I think. Besides if you are struggling almost midway through Civil War then I think Civil War has done it's job and proved to you that you will need to switch up tactics.

    I took a look at your hodacodex list... seems you have some great heroes that are undeveloped. I would consider a demon squad, and overhaul of your elf squad. If it's correct, it shows that you have The Highest One and you should certainly develop THO. THO can be an anchor hero for both elf and demon groups for you. I would also consider developing:

    Isseya (elf/ future warden squad)
    Spirit Champion (Elf/ spirits)
    King Maric (improve your Ferelden setup until you get KC and/or Ferelden Banner)
    Maferath (spirits/ outlaw)
    Dalish Banner (elf)

    And as mentioned above, farm for Fen, Kitty and ED.. they will improve your demon and elf teams signficantly.
    If you can also get an ApSol.. ApSol combines with Dalish Banner quite nicely.

      Awesome, thanks! That pretty much corresponds to what I thought I should be doing - I've been trying for Kitty and Envy Demon, but no luck so far. I have developed THO pretty well (just need to beef up the forts a bit), and King Maric, Maferath, and Isseya are coming along. Spirit Champion I just got, so need to work on him. I've neglected the Dalish banner. Not sure where to get Fen and Eva, but I'll look into it.

      I also just got Seeker Cass, so maybe there's some potential with LS Cass for an better Inquisition squad...

      Appreciate your response!

        Eva and Fen also drop from Origins.
        Ally Code: 342-164-588
        Guild: Spirit Fingers

          Oh, they do? Cool, thanks. Easy decision to grind that for a while then.

            I see you have pretty good heroes, but you need to complete your squads.
            I would do more Origins gaunlet runs, there are great heroes that really will help you to compete much better at pvps and drops are good and you can get great elves as FH to complete your elven squad, you have GoM, Wild Sylvan, Dalsih Banner and IA, I would fort and tier them well.
            Other good elves that you have are Shianni and SC, you also can get SC dupes at Origins Gaunlet.
            You can complete your demon squad too, Origins gaunlet drops kitty and Envy Demon that fit well with POC, demons are pretty dangerous and a solid demon squad is very useful to compete.
            LSC is an awesome heroe, you should tier and fort her well, she buffs your squad so much, I love her.
            In your first squad I would change Carver and the Saboteur for Sof and LSC.
            I also would change Ritts for Shianni, she is really dangerous.
            I would try Meredith or RL Iron Bull instead one of your Samsons because they attack all the enemies.
            You have a pretty good rogue squad too, try Brianla x2, Charter and Shianni with the great bear and x3 Briala and Shianni.
            Other great squad that you can built is King Maric x2 with Teagan, Druffalo and Fereldan Banner.

            Good luck at gaunlet!

              Thanks for the response! I've been running Gauntlet a few times a day when I can, but so far no luck at Fen, Kitty, or ED. Definitely plan on working on SC and levelling my Dalish banner. Still haven't figured out how to use LSC best, so thanks for the suggestion on pairing her with the Arcane Hawkes. Spirit of Faith is another one I've ignored but wondered about how to use.

              I used to have RL IB in for one of the RL Samsons - can't remember why I made that switch. Maybe the the double high power buff to RL was tempting? I also had RL nug in there for a while too.

              I don't have the Fereldan Banner yet, but I'll put Shianni on my list of toons to build up!

              Thanks again.

              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.

              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:
