Good defense teams?


#1

I spent the last couple of days training up Behemoth. I’ve been using an invade team of:

Khorvash / Valk / Mercy / Behemoth

Extremely effective against just about everything. However, since I know Mercy is pretty bad in the hands of the AI, I switched it up to:

Khorvash / Valk / Behemoth / Hydra

All troops have all 3 traits. It seems like I’m simply not generating enough blue mana to charge Hydra and his traits aren’t all that great. Any slight tweaks I could make to improve the win rate?


#2

Is crimson bat not more useful than behemoth? Considering khorvash does true damage


#3

Probably. I haven’t tried him yet. Would I scrap Hydra too and try something else with True Damage in that spot?


#4

Is there a green/purple one?

Venoxia for blue gems?

Or Psion has blue/purple


#5

Venoxia, good call. Going to work on traits for her.


#6

That 3rd trait sounds very useful to the team. Might steal them once I get Khorvash


#7

She does true damage and generates blue mana so that makes her pretty useful. Not sure what to plug into the other slot though. Maybe I’ll leave Behemoth.


#8

Thought it was Crimson Bat


#9

oh yeah, i suppose I could do that.


#10

I just got Mab the other day. Her 3rd trait could be quite annoying in that kind of setup.


#11

Almost wonder if putting Maw in my invade team might be better than Behemoth.


#12

Marilith and Crimson Bat are nasty to add to Khorvash’s true damage. Overall you want to avoid running true and non-true damage on the same team since its inefficient.


#13

That’s exactly what I figured. Would you do Venoxia with one of them, probably Bat?


#14

Waiting for Mab on console. First time I have the traitstones waiting. Moderately excited


#15

Right now, because both of them have the capability to generate mana, I’m going with a lineup of:

Khorvash / Green Seer / Venoxia / Marilith

We’ll see how it works once I get them traited.


#16

Venoxia is useful but the true damage component isn’t stellar. If you’re using a Valkyrie or a Green Seer, its OK to have a color or two missing from your team, since the transformers will tend to try to transform the one/s you don’t use.


#17

And I just got my first defense victory with them. 1 for 1. :smiley:


#18

So I ended up focusing on Crimson Bat, since Arcane Bloods are available via Glory this week.

The current lineup I’m using is:

Khorvash / Valk / Bat / Anubite

I settled on Anubite because I already had him leveled and traited, so:

  1. He buffs all other troops.
  2. He summons a fortress gate in the event that Khorvash dies, protecting the Bat.
  3. His buff to armor removes all skulls, further protecting my troops from damage.
  4. He gives a +3 to armor when defending.

#19

Spirit Fox. Green/purple. Removes all yellow gems, does 13 true damage boosted by gems removed. Also has stealthy and empowered for its second and third traits. One of my favorites.


#20

Doesn’t Spirit Fox stymie Valkyrie though? I want to make sure Khorvash gets filled as quickly as possible, he’s my primary offensive weapon.
