I see, speed of getting souls is better than qty of souls then.
For example, a 20 sec fight that generates 250 souls vs a 40 sec fight that generates 350 souls is better for farming purposes.
I was using Banshee (to generate souls), Kerberos, Soul Keeper and Acolyte for the Necromancy trait. Wasn’t too worried about killing the other teams quickly though.
*BTW, I didn’t realise Kerberos and Soul Keeper had Necromancy as a trait. I was looking for Soul generators before.
I was thinking explore can generate traitstones as well as gold, never really got into the Arena mode. I’ll check it out.
It’s a bit tough to create the really good soul generation teams early on when your resources are limited. For example The Dragon Soul and Pharos-Ra are very popular but are a legendary and mythic respectively. Early necromancy troops like Valkyrie and Warlock are a bit slow unless you add some units to quickly clear the enemies, but each non-soul increasing troops lowers your soul count per battle.
I use The Dragon Soul, Pharos-Ra, Hero w/ Imperial Jewel (whatever class I want to level), and Umberwolf. Gets around 200 souls a run depending on how high I get the soul count. It’s not the fastest team, but it can reliably clear dungeons and most Adventure Board battles so I use it to pick up some extra souls while clearing dailies.
Dragon Soul kills everything fast and generates souls. Pharos-Ra has the best soul trait and top off the soul count. Hero is there for class XP and to soak up extra mana. Umberwolf just sits there for the trait that creates a darkstorm every turn for Dragon Soul to loop on.
You can swap the hero for another necromancy troop if you want more souls at the expense of hero XP, and Umberwolf for a necromancy troop if you want more souls in exchange for potentially slower battles.
Thanks for all the info guys. It looks like I need to build up my Leg and Myth troops, not just for soul farming but other farming options also. But soul farming specifically, I’ll have to do some timed tests and see what works best for what I have while I build up my collection more. One shot killing the enemy troops is fast but not many souls, building up to 100/100 souls in a fight nets many more souls but is slower.
But thanks again for the input, definitely makes working it out easier.
Deathknight, Sorceror, and Assassin are all decent choices for hero classes. Deathknight and Assassin have an early talent that gives them one soul each turn, and Sorceror gains souls on 4+ matches.
There are better classes in the game, to be sure. But these three are dead weight as far as I am concerned. At late game I would almost never use any of them. So an early-game opportunity to build some champion levels might not be the worst thing.
Try putting him on a team with someone who can boost your life (or any stat, really—I say life just because that tends to be best for staying alive), like Yasmine’s Pride or Divinia—you’ll see his damage output quickly skyrocket
AKA he’s good on an Earth’s Fury team in scaling events or anything else that can mega-boost.
AKA one of the few heavy hitters against Stealthy targets.
He’s in that class of mythics that’s not “broken”, but is still severely powerful. Like all troops that get better with scaling, he’s average-to-good in normal cases so not super useful in PvP these days.
Thanks for the info, I know his damage scales and I have him leveled and traited but I hadn’t found a consistent use for him so I’ll take a look at what I can team him up with.
Most of my leveling was using Titan, Mang, Hyndla Frostcrown x 2 and Skrymir the Lofty which was great up to a point. Now I’m using a fairly standard thief team for most things. So another solid team would be good.
I think he’s most useful on content requiring the use of red, brown, or green troops, like certain delves, Tower of Doom, and Guild Wars. That’s how he gets used on my wife’s account, anyway—I don’t have him myself, so I only get to play with the card when my wife has me play one of her battles for something.
When next I have time on her account, I’ll post you a few teams that have worked well for her
