  • Long Time Player - Need Help With Teams

    I've been at this game for quite a while and I'm struggling right now to get some solid teams together, so, I'll just ask some questions about what I've got on hand.

    I've got 3x Asha 'Bellanar I'm using with a Dalish Banner. My hang up here is that Asha grants 35% stun, slow, and drain resist for Apostates as well as being immune to curse. Why with 3 of them together are they getting cursed and drained to the point they're hitting like wet noodles? I'm running her right now with Hunterhorn Shrike but I've also tried Dragon Morrigan and Guardian of Mythal. Anyways, feels like it just isn't working.

    I've got 3x Josephine, 5x Advisor Cullen, 4x Scout Harding, 3x Advisor Leliana, Queen of the Eastern Seas, and Xenon the Antiquarian. I'm constantly coming across teams that are composed of these heroes but again, don't feel like I know how best to mix and match them.

    Demons, I like demons, but haven't the slightest clue on how to set up a fun team with them. I've got The Dark Theurge, 2x Kitty, 4x Envy Demon, Possessed Ogre Commander, Nightmare, Phantasmal Warrior, and some others. Unfortunately no The Highest One yet. Maybe there's not enough here to do anything with?

    Outside of this I've got other heroes to toss around, 3x Shape Shifter Morrigan, Warden-Commander Sophia, Garahel, The Hawkes, Maryden, The Dorians, several banners and so on.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    The thorn in my side right now are the Advisor teams more than anything.

    Hi there! The advisors are tough ones to crack for sure. What I recommend is taking a look at some of those same teams in PG and checking their gear. Sometimes one single piece, like Bull’s Edge for example, can make or break the entire team concept. As far as Asha’s, they are quite vulnerable as you noted here, which makes them a risky play vs advisors who can basically exploit that same weakness.

    Also, if you haven’t yet joined a guild, these are great places to learn a lot and ask questions on team building, etc. If you are looking for a recommendation there, just let me know, I believe I can help you out . Take care, and welcome to the forum!

      How many Piotin Aeducan do you have? 2x?

      Can you get/ do you have Hunterhorn Shrike? Titan Heart Guardian?

      a good shale team is great vs Josie and Cullen setups, but getting enough gear can be a challenge, which is why I would check for some Piotin's first.

        Hi Das,

        Pretty good roster you have there!!

        Advisors are still a very squad and they constitute the majority of PG at the moment.
        Unfortunately, the only way around an Advisor Squad is a Shales squad..or another Advisors Squad.

        Some good team configurations with your toons:

        3 x Josie, AC and Hunterhorn
        3 x Josie, SH and Hunterhorn
        3x Josie, Xenon and Hunterhorn
        2 x Josie, 2 x AC, Hunterhorn

        My suggestion is to beef up your Advisor squad with all mythic forts and good gear.
        If you have orange keys, grind the Shapeshifters or Right Armor raid for good drops.

        Key gear to look out for:

        Red Lyrium Idol - Josie Stealth
        Scout Quiver - Scout Harding Stealth
        Skin That Stalks - all heroes
        Diplomatic Missives - Josie
        Templar Breastplate - all 4 heroes
        Bulls Edge - Advisor Cullen
        Arms of the Champion - Josie
        Elgar'nan Este - Josie / Scout Harding

        With the above setup, you should be able to crack top 250 in PG.

        Good luck!

          Hi,welcome back!

          Odesius, Bjorn and varunbkk gave you awesome tips, I agree with them.
          Your best team is advisors with Shrike or 3 SH and Maryden work pretty well too.
          The problem is that shales destroy advisors easily and it's difficult to get them, they are a possible Metas gaunlet drop, but shales drops are low.
          Another thing that you need to do your team works well is to get good gear, you can get 2 orange keys in this leaderboard and unlock the right armour raid, the best gear drops there for your advisors.
          If you have any doubt you can ask me.

          Good luck!

            Thanks all for the feedback. I actually picked up the 2 Raid Keys yesterday and farmed them to death. This will all be useful.

            Maybe I'll look at a Shale team. I've got multiples of all of them I can pluck out of fortifications.

            Maybe at some point I'll look at guild. I've been playing casually for over 4 years now I think. Got to admit this game has been handled really well over the years.

              Cool, shales are worth it, but you will need to get some crystals, shales don't work well without this gear.

                Ah yes, the crystals. I farmed that event and got squat. I did get some of the yellow epic pieces and one red legendary today out of the Shapeshifter raid.

                Did a quick pass too, I've got 3 ruby, 2 amethyst, and 1 emerald diamond and amber to work with. Along with either Titan Heart Guardian or Paragon Caridin.

                  3 ruby and 1 diamond works pretty well.
                  And emerald shale is great too.
                  I think they work better with Caridin.

                  Off-Topic Posting

                  Political Posting
                  Because political beliefs, like religion, are a personal and sensitive topic, avoid posting about politics on the forums.

Posting your ticket number and requesting assistance on the forums will result in the post being deleted. Sending a Private Message to the Community Manager or Moderators about CSR Inquiries is not to be tolerated, and will be ignored.

                  Additionally, all interactions with Customer Support are considered confidential, and all issues are handled on a case-by-case basis. As such, posts containing transcripts or results of your interactions with Customer Support will be edited or deleted. Keep in mind that your friend's case may not be exactly like your case, so the results of your request may differ from the results of your friend. 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.
