I am keeping an ASCII version of the Forum Markup code necessary to make the above tables. Should I die or somebody else wants to take over they should be able to re-create the above by making a new Forum post with this https://docs.google.com/document/d/1CEpImE9lqDZVB7rnXOPGDDYjfgLHmLTdUSJEq6Nrw58

You’re missing the new soul forged triple damage anti color hero weapons.


#4

I was going to say that, new weapons.

Additionally… I dispute ‘explode green’ as an effective removal tool, its like saying Gorgotha removes green. The board refills, there will be green. So Fizzbang, Poison Master and Azura, I don’t think they ought to be here.

Otherwise good work. I like the weapon indicators.


#5

Yellow:
Wild Fang (Triple Damage)
Herdmaster (Explode) [See @Shimrra comment however if those truly count as counters]

Green:
Leshy
Orc

Blue:
Asha

Purple:
Sekhma incorrectly put here
Shadowbringer doesn’t have weapon symbol next to it

Thanks Zippity


#8

I think that is splitting hairs. Any action which removes also brings new, for example. As well “thank you for spawning gem X now I 'm going to explode them all for a giant gather” is a common strategy. I do see your underlying point. If people feel including them hurts more than helps maybe we can put them in their own table or move them to Special Case. I guess we will see how others feel.

edit: It reads like I’m saying I don’t see your point but the wording is just awkward if you re-read it. I actually see your point I just don’t know what is the correct thing


#9

Please help me and list them by name and what heading they’d go under, thank youj.


#10

There is a different between removing say 13 blues, where 2 of those may come back as blue, and exploding 13 blue, where the whole board blows up and now ~9 blues come back. I believe that’s the point @Shimrra is trying to convey.


#11

How about we try to find out what others think then we we’ll collectively make a choice. We can look at a lot of things and make choices like Desdaemona for example. Carnex being used to clear Skulls and re-fill the board/team after a BD cast is another example. There’s definitely lots of room for different opinions and good discussion.


#13

13 blue frost sword X damage to first enemy, triple if they use red mana.

13 green nature sword triple vs brown

13 red fire sword triple vs green

13 yellow light sword triple vs purple

13 purple dark sword triple vs yellow

13 brown stone sword triple vs blue


#14

Thank you.


#15

thanks krudler great help
:grin:


#16

It was mostly everybody else from the other thread and now here, I just whipped it all into a table and added a few upgrades :slight_smile:
Thanks, I humbly tip my fedora and curl my movember


#17

Thank you. Perfect and really needed. :sunglasses:
If you want to include weapons that explode certain colored gems, there is also to mention the Mountain Crusher.


#18

Excellent, thank you! It looks like it is the only one with both :crossed_swords: and :boom:


#19

It’s ok that you include color exploders, since it often removes more gems than new ones fall in the board. Also good to show them with an explode icon. Nice work.


#20

Thank you :slight_smile: Since Pinchy came out of a Glory Chest for me the other day I’ve been using Poison Master to Explode Greens. Then I moved on to check out some other Explode Troops like Azura, etc as I assembled this list. I observed through many battles how clearly they function as Color counters so I left them in. I figure people can just ignore or not use what they feel doesn’t work for them.


#21

Yes, using Herdmaster on a yellow day teaches you how much of a yellow counter he really is, the hard way :cry:


#22

Lol did you counter yourself?
