  • Some question for a comming back guy

    Hey everyone, i just came back after at least 1+ year not playing... so would appreciate if someone would fill me in about some basics.
    1. First of all... what are the best team setups right now(i assume there is kind of meta for a 'best ones').
    2. What does exactly the tome of ascension and how to get it. Also are items overall important for a team setup?
    3. Is there a list of heroes available in every pack? I remember there was some list of heroes in every champion, bloodstone and iron pack.
    4. What are the top tier team setups right now? I assume there is some meta behind those.
    5. I got 3 relatively strong and fully fortified squads and im looking for some upgrades for those:
    Elves/apostates(Dragon Morrigan, Solas, Apostate Solas, FenHarel, Spirit of Faith)
    Inquisition(Dorian, Cullen, Josephine, Divine Vivviene and Dragon Morrigan)
    Qunari(Sarath, 2xSten the Arishok, Arigena and Ariqun)
    I got some possible replacements right now. I got some hawke's, Magister dorians, advisors morrigan and some other 3-2stars that were here 1 year ago.


    Thanks in advance for answers and cheers

    Hey there, welcome back! Here’s a few answers to your questions.

    1. 4x Red Lyrium Bart are one of the top teams, but not the easiest to acquire. However, thanks to a recent revamp, King Alistair truly is the king now, find about 3 of those and build away! Get a Ferelden banner and you have one of the top teams out there right now.

    2. Tomes allow you to ascend heroes from legendary (green base) to Mythic (purple base) and get them 5 more levels of experience. Pretty helpful when competing.

    3. There is a thread in the University section for that called Pack Info at a Glance. Also, check Hodacodex.com for this info.

    4. Think this is the same as question 1

    5. You have some good pieces to work with there. MD is a great addition to squads and he pairs excellently with SoF. Take a look in heroes you already have forted for the good King though, if he’s used as a fort, you can remove him now for a few gems, and it’s really worth it.

    Last bit of advice, to help you get back into things I recommend you join a guild if you haven’t done so. You can get more real time advice, guidance, team strategy, etc from these and meet a few great new friends. If you want to let me know your player level and how you normally do in ladder PvP events, I can help you find one where you’ll be happy.

    Hope that helps, feel free to ask more questions!

      I got 185 lvl and im mostly f2p - i was in a 8-10k banner team from what i remember. Would love to join some guild but I think i would prefer something more casual'ish at this moment.

          Welcome back to HoDA,

          I agree with Odesius, the current meta are 4 RL Bartrands and 2 King Alistairs 2 Ferelden Banners setup or other King Alistair combinations (some players use3 KA with Sophia Dryden or KA with templar/ferelden banner)
          The LC for KA teams is Great Dragon, Gamordan Stormrider or Abyssal Dragon.
          I recommend you to do some Origins Gaunlet runs to improve your squad, they are a little outdated, there you can get a pretty good demon squad and some good elves, they will help you to compete.
          Best drops: Fen'Harel, Spirit Champion, Envy Demon, Possessed Ogre Commander, Malvernis Dragon and Kitty.
          You can also can try to get Guardian of Mythal in the current raid event if you don't have them, they are very useful.
          I would add to Odesius post that you can get the tomes playing Origins Gaunlet too, at the top of some leaderboards and opening the gear store.
          You have a pretty good elven squad, you should use them as your main team.
          If you send me your complete heroes list at HoDA Codex, I can look up the best hero setup for you.
          Inquisition is a little outdated now and qunaris are also pretty strong because they were revamped, but they work better with high bonuses in a qunari pvp.
          If you get a demon squad at gaunlet, you should make them your main squad.
          You can also build a Spirit Champion Fen Harel squad, they will really help you.

          Good luck!

            Awesome you have so many KA.
            You should use Abyssal High Dragon and 3 KA and you should get ferelden or templar banners for your squad, if not, you can also use 3* Sophia Dryden or other KA.

                  Your best team is 3 KA and Abyssal High Dragon, they should be your meta, I see you don't have any banner, they are very useful, try to get them if you have the chance, ferelden or templar banners matches well with them, if not, you can use other KA.
                  You also have great elves, Last Inquisitor, FH, Ap Solas are your best elves, I would use them with Merril/Spirit of Faith, you can replace them for Dalish Banner if you get them and Spirit Champion/Fen Harel setups are also very dangerous with the Dalish Banner.
                  I would use Dragon Flemeth or Dragon Morrigan with you elven squad. DF was revamped and is pretty good now.
                  Another good team is your qunari squad, they were revamped and are good too, your best qunari squad is the triumvirate (Arigena, Ariqun and Sten), I would use them with Saarebas and Saarath.
                  I also saw that you have 2 Arvaarads and 1 Ketojan, if you get a second Ketojan, 2 Arvaarads 2 Ketojans is an good team too.
                  It is good trying to get Arigena dupes, they work pretty well with Ariqun.
                  Another good setup is your ferelden team: I would use your 2 Battlemasters and King Maric with Ferelden Frostback, you only need to get King Calenhad (he is now in a FP) to complete your team.
                  It is also good to use ferelden banners with them and combine them with arcane hawkes.
                  Arcane Garret, 2 Ferelden banners and King Calenhad was a very dangerous team.
                  You can also build a great demon squad if you play some Origins Gaunlet runs.

                  I hope this tips will help you to continue with the game.

                              Yes, he only drops from node 14. You are at the mercy of RNG because he's not a guaranteed drop. Luckily there are lots of other good drops from the Origin gauntlet so it probably won't be a wasted effort anyways.

                              Revamped VA is good, but whether or not he's worth using a tome on depends on how many you have and which other heroes you are leveling. Erimond is not worth a tome right now, IMO.

                              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.

                              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.
