How much can Medals help with delves?

I try to imagine how useful Medals will be on faction troops to make delve level 500 with pure faction team and kingdom level 14. Take “Sea of Sorrow” for example. Increase Attack and Magic on them? Or Magic and cleansing?

Depends on what faction you’re running, but there’s a very high chance I’m taking 3x Cleanse or 2x Cleanse + 20% mana…

Edit: If I don’t need to cleanse anything, then Magic. Lots of Magic.

I’m going to say “not at all”.

In general, I don’t think it will be that helpful for pure faction teams on delve level 500. Even an extra max stacked +12 magic doesn’t hold up against the AIs huge stats on that level.

Three 40% chances to cleanse could be very useful in some factions, such as Fang Moor and Dark Pits. You’re still at a significant stat disadvantage, but at least you aren’t also bleeding, cursed, poisoned, death marked, and diseased.

It would be even better if those chances were additive (bugged, given how Ozball said they were supposed to work), such that you had a single 120% chance to cleanse every turn.

When Delves released I looked at them and thought, “I bet it’s longer than a year before this is easily doable.” I have yet to see anything change my mind.

It feels like these probably make Delve one Tier VII cheaper to finish. That still puts maxing them out of the realm of people who don’t spend their entire weekends on GoW.

For level 500 pure faction, I have made it to the boss room on Primal Rift many times. I get destroyed because my first slot is constantly entangled. Cleanse may help. However, more than likely, it will just get entangled again immediately following cleanse.
