  • What team should I build next?

    You all have provided great advice in the past, so hopefully you can give me your thoughts on my next team. I've been playing for a couple months, but I'm definitely no pro. I still have to look up how stuff works periodically! Anyways, down below are my first two builds and a link to my heroes. What would be the best team to focus on next? I've been working on an Orlesian/Rogue team, but that's mostly an experiment on my part. I have a couple ideas for a great third team, but I'm curious to hear what you have to say. Thanks!

    My Main Team:
    Northern Hunter III (not mythic)
    Red Jenny Sera IV (mythic)
    Advisor Leliana IV (mythic)
    King Alistair IV (mythic)
    L.S. Cassandra IV (mythic)

    My 2nd Team:
    Northern Hunter III (not mythic)
    Ariqun IV (not mythic)
    Arigena IV (not mythic)
    Tamassran IV (not mythic)
    Saarebas IV (not mythic)

    So, on my device, the codex Doesn’t seem to show individual filters like that, so I can’t tell what you have. In general though, you could beef up your first team by replacing KA with a bart or VV and NH with behemoth(use meredith’s Key gear on him). Go for a pure quick team there with LSC to stack the gain. If you lack behemoth, he drops in the yellow key LC event. Otherwise, work toward a better LC for those qun in team 2. Saarath ideally, but Ataashi is also an option. Hope that helps!

        DMorrigan and Vinsomer are your best giants. DFlemeth is good for Apostate/Witch of the Wilds teams, but I would still go with DMorrigan over DFlemeth. Wild Sylvan is good for Elves if you don't have Guardian of Mythal.

        Your best 2 giants: DMorrigan and Vinsomer. DMorrigan is imo better than Vinsomer. Both were recently revamped. Yellow key giant wisp event drops mythic wisps at a good rate, which generally makes mythic forting giants laughably easy overall. I have like 15 giant heroes, all fully mythic forted. Don't underestimate giants in your teams--they generally won't be doing your heavy-hitting, but they have large health pools and are critical supports to round out any competitive squad.

        I sorted your legendary list by stars and faction, so I'll go down the list as I see it and name heroes that imo are worth your time.

        The Elder One: powerful nuker. Ignore his RLyrium alignment, he works best in Blight teams. Good in dupes, but quad TEO teams make no sense to me. Pair him with Ancient Darkspawn and The Seeker, equip them with drain gear. Blight is nowhere near meta, but Blight drain teams are surprisingly competitive and will serve you well in any area of the game outside of Proving Grounds, which is the kingdom of hardcore meta.

        Lady Seeker Cassandra: not quite as massively impressive as she was at launch, but still a great toon. 50% Levy and extra opposing faction dmg means she works well with pretty much any high dmg attacker, but her most successful combos are with dupe Viscount Varrics or AOE mages like Arcane Hawkes and Inquisitors. The Last Inquisitor is available in Commander Pack. Personally I'd pick TEO over her, but still, a great toon to have.

        Advisor Leliana: recently revamped (very recently in fact) and has multi-attack and pretty high assassinate chance, which now makes her the poor man's RLBart, which is less of a knock against her and more of an acknowledgement of just how stupidly powerful RLBart is. I've seen her be very dangerous in Proving Grounds (which, like I said, is the meta showdown). Definitely pay attention to her. I'd say right now probably more valuable to you than TEO (whom I love, but that's more of a personal preference than supported by actual in-game performance).

        RJSera: as far rogues go, she's one of the best. The problem for fast round rogues in general is that the game is moving away from power/speed rune fast hard-hitting insta-wins towards longer, 2-3 round battles where survivability is important because of the new guidelines which dictate that new toons and those that are revamped have much more health than before. Then notice that RJS has basically no survivability, and you'll see that there are better options. ALeliana is miles better.

        King Alistair is possibly the second most powerful single toon in the game right now, after RLBart. Assassination notwithstanding, KA has high catch-all buffs and resistances, healing, power gain, multi-attack... he's a monster. After RLBart, dupes of KA (often with Ferelden Banners) are the best Proving Grounds meta teams. Pairs great with ALeliana too. Give him priority, you'll get a lot of mileage out of this guy. Really, he's your best overall toon.

        I mentioned Wild Sylvan earlier. Good for elf/demon teams if you don't have Guardian of Mythal or POC/Nightmare. I'd keep him around, but don't rush to build him.

        Ancient Darkspawn: I love this guy, along with TEO he's the cornerstone of one of my favorite teams. Not meta material, but he's yet to fail me outside of Proving Grounds. Dupe TEO/dupe AD x-crossed + AUrthemiel may be the best Blight team available. Equip him with drain gear (the dwarf crystal that drains enemies on hit and the book that lowers enemy drain resist) to boost his native drain abilities and watch him turn the most powerful toons into pewpews.

        The Seeker: surprisingly badass for such an old 1* toon. I used him in my Blight drain team until I grabbed a dupe TEO. Still, plenty good for a new-ish player. If you find yourself with nothing else to do, build him up.

        KCCullen: worth paying attention to because he was recently revamped and will pair nicely with ALeliana and LSC. Not meta, nowhere near meta, but will work nicely in the Nexus.

        Honorable mentions: Hakkonite defender is great in Hakkonite teams, meh otherwise. Lurker and Deepstalker Matriarch are great in creature teams, meh otherwise. Thing is, there are better options than Creatures and Hakkonites.

        Now for some team compositions from what you have available. Outside of the hardcore meta (which for the most part involves dupes of insanely powerful toons like RLBart and KAlistair), the best factions right now imo are (in no particular order): demons, elves, Wardens, Ferelden and yes, Blight (I'm stubborn).

        Let's see what you can do.

        Blight
        LC: DMorrigan
        FR: TEO/AD
        BR: Seeker/BOghren

        Chantry:
        LC: DMorrigan
        FR: LSC/KCC
        BR: AL/Belinda Darrow (I'd pick her for this slot because she has curse and heal and will buff KCC like crazy, but you can also plug in Giselle if you don't mind support toons or Seeker Cass; I would pass on the others)

        Ferelden:
        LC: DMorrigan
        FR: KA/KCC
        BR: AL/Barkspawn (although GCAveline doesn't look terrible; I hate Advisor Cullen on principle)

        Inquisition:
        LC: DMorrigan
        FR: LSC/AL
        BR: RJS/Giselle

        In the name of all that you hold dear on this good earth, forget about Orlesians as a faction. There are some great toons in this game who happen to be Orlesians but are actually part of much better groups.

        Qunari are... okay... but you have better options available even now. (my Blight kicks qunari ass regularly, jussayn)

          This was a next level response, thanks so much Zanir! I'm glad to see that you report many of the same thoughts I've been having (it means I'm getting better lol).

          This was actually the exact blight team I was leveling for the dwarf/blight pvp event that just expired.

          lol Why the hate for AC?

          This is similar to the last iteration of my main team. (I was using Giselle before I had KAlistair. Of course I was also using NHunter instead of DMorrigan.) Why are you choosing Giselle over KA? Does Giselle synergize better with DM? My win count went up quite a bit once I swapped her out for KA.

          About the Qunari, I def agree. There's a reason why I haven't made them mythic...

          The Orlesian/Rogue experiment I'm working on may yet surprise you. There's gold in them thar hills, I just need to suss it out. Granted, the O/R team would never be competition for the current meta, it's just to see how powerful I can make. A couple of them synergize really well together (or with each other).


          Thanks again!

            Thanks man. I snagged Behemoth after reading this. It's very helpful to know where to find toons, so thanks for telling where he was located. Speaking of which, I wish there was some in-game way of seeing the "inventory" of each event/pack/etc. I.E., what you could possibly get. Ah well.

              You can see much of that in the event notices Lyeshal posts and in the university section here in the forum via the drop sheets or the pack info thread. Nothing ingame though. Hope that helps!

                Hi Emrak,

                I see you have pretty good heroes, but you need to complete some of your squads.
                I would build a DM LSC 3 RJS squad or DM, 2 RJS, AL and LSC they are a very dangerous rogue squad, I would use them as 1 of my main teams.
                I like much more DM than Northern Hunter, she was updated and it's an awesome toon now.
                You have great heroes too as KA and TEO, but you need to complete your teams.
                Try to get Abyssal Dragon opening some BP and Ferelden Banner for your King Alistair team. LSC and Belinda Darrow are good for your Alistair team too.
                And 2 Tevinter Banner or another TEO, if not Ancient Darkspawn works pretty good too.
                You can get better heroes doing some Gaunlet Origins runs, there are awesome elven and demons there and drops are pretty good.

                Good luck!

                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.
