Is Yao Guai worth 800 diamonds?


#1

I’m a fairly new player & I finally accumulated 800 diamonds.

Should I use the diamonds on Yao Guai or continue saving for something in the future?

Thanks in advance.

Yao worth 2000 diamonds

Its a nice troops but if you need a mythic you might want to keep saving for them first

But if you decide to craft him you wont regret i use him alot


#3

Absolutely. It is worth more than half the mythics in my book.


#4

From a collectors’ standpoint I’d advise against it, however… with your first 800 diamonds? I’d say do it, he’s strong as hell and combos with some easily-acquired troops.


#5

Absolutely! Get it before you regret it!


#6

If you have some event keys, you can wait till the next Shentang event coming soon

It is a good troop though


#7

Definitely worth it.


#8

I’d use Event Keys now trying to get Infernus.


#9

I’d advice against ever direcly aiming for a specific mythic with event keys unless you swim in event keys because you are in a guild flooding you with them through tasks, in which case you are probably not here on the forums asking if a particular troop is worth 800 diamonds in the first place.


#10

Only if you have specific teams in mind. Not worth crafting if you don’t have the supporting troops.

Yao guai doesn’t need any support he can solo a whole team lmao. He is the best legendary maybe the dragon soul for newbie is better but besides that none come close.

Yao guai is better than at least 80% of all mythic.

In bounty he is a godsend, in PvP he can easily fit into many team.


#12

I got him.

Thanks for the advice guys.


#13

Eh, it’s too late but what troop you should shoot for depends on what you have.

TDS should be priority #1. It kicks butt and farms souls. The traditional choices after that are Pharos-Ra, Infernus, and Ubastet, but I would not blame someone for detouring and jamming Yao Guai in between.

That said, 800 diamonds isn’t a lot, so if you made the “wrong” choice here you got a really strong card and didn’t lose much.


#14

I agree. I think you can’t go wrong with Yao guai


#15

Yes, absolutely, so long as you have 800. :smile:


#16

He is pretty great. Good luck!


#17

Do you have Pharos Ra?

If the answer is no, then don’t.

Get PR first.
Legendaries are easy enough to get in time.


#18

If you have Gorgotha, then yes go for YG. As @shimrra says, YG is very strong and easy to combo into.

Otherwise wait for Gorgotha. It’s the one troop that’ll be a base for so many team designs.

Edit: and then I read the thread and realised you already did it. Skills.
