Ok so I just started getting back into soul farming a bit as I’ve decided I actually want to try and get all / most of my kingdoms to 5-star finally.
Perhaps this team has been said already and I just didn’t see it, but I put this soul farming team together that seems to be working pretty well:
Couple that with guild statues level 100, celestial armor, and difficulty level Warlord III (warlord iv doesn’t seem worth it given the extra 100% stats the monsters get vs the extra 25% souls payoff, not worth the extra time per match).
With all of that I’m netting 630 souls per match. With each match usually taking less than a minute unless you get an absolutely abysmal setup.
Strategy is to fill up dark troll first. With this setup brown and red matches will both net you 4 mana. one surge and a regular match and dark troll is ready to roll. Given the new updates and the way gem spawners work, dark troll is a step above. He won’t overwrite current purple gems and ten creates 4 additional more. I’d say 95% of the time you get an extra turn with using him.
He then fills up Pharos (usually both) and nets you somewhere around 75 souls on his first cast, and then many times when you cast Pharos you will get another turn when converting the yellow gems to purple. He can pretty much one-shot anyone right from the get-go, doing 100 damage with his first cast (after dark troll has been cast). The second pharos can immediately cast for appx. 170 damage, and then you are maxed out at the 180 soul cap for the match and each subsequent cast will deal 200 damage.
Use acolyte as a contingency in case your pharos ra’s are both tapped and somehow your dark troll hasn’t filled himself back up (he usually has). This will create brown gems, usually filling up dark troll, and then rinse and repeat, enemy gone.
I haven’t taken this team to PvP yet, but I can’t imagine it not performing quite well there as well.
Obviously a better team would be to replace acolyte with another Pharos-Ra, however I consider myself lucky enough to have pulled 2 of them, so won’t complain not having a 3rd. However, I would be interested to know how many souls I would be getting per match given my setup if I were to replace acolyte with another pharos.
