STABILITY between PERIODS; This Top-5's 1st


Kunchen continues to makes strides in positioning. It was thought by many he would take the #1 position from Guin this period. Though that did not happen, his use continues to climb.


Drake called Kage's (Cakes) downward spiral last period in review. With confidence; knowing he can get the job done.

THE ULTIMATES: The Top 5

GRAVEMAKER remains the undisputed "KING of the HILL" for 32 consecutive collection periods. Dating back to August 2018.

#1 Gravemaker in 48.00% of the Top-100 teams; same spot, 10 duplicate uses.

#2 Kunchen in 33.00% of the Top-100 teams; same spot.

#3 Guinevere in 25.83% of the Top-100 teams; same spot.

#4 Alasie in 19.83% of the Top-100 teams; same spot, 1 duplicate use.

#5 Drake Fong in 19.17% of the Top-100 teams; same spot.

Kageburado first appeared 02/16/2019. Just shy of 7 consecutive periods. Previously holding the highest position of #2 outside the 'Originals'. Kunchen matched that record today. Zimkitha 1st appeared 03/24/2019 achieving position #3 (her highest to date). Kunchen appeared initially in a tie with Kage 04/16/2019. Drake Fong periods ending 07/23 and 08/27 makes it 2 back to back for the Snake, the 1st back on 01/30/2019. Sartana and Zeline are 2 of the 'Original's currently outside their comfort zone.

THE CONTENDERS: Top 6-10

Lianna follows Drakes Lead, using Kage as her stepping stone.

#6 Lianna in 18.17% of the Top-100 teams; up 4 spots.

RaZoR's Classing Strategy

Posted: May 13, 2019

Updated: July 5, 2019 (My 1st and 2nd Class personal listings were adjusted)

Those without Legends your goals would be clear, and I will suggest these both for you and for Legendary players (just a perosonal listing):

 

FIRST CLASS (peronal listing)

Boldtusk, Rigard, Kiril, Grimm, Wilbur, Proteus, Buddy

 

SECOND CLASS or SPECIAL USE (peronal listing)

Valeria, Hansel, Wu-Kong, Jackal, Melendor, Sabina, Cheshire Cat

 

I have found Valeria post ‘balancing’ worthy for my purposes (and this game caters to Very Fast Heroes). Hansel has done decent for me. Special use: Wu-Kong for Titans (if you don't have Tarlak or Ranvir). Guardian Jackal for Dark Titans and potential MONO/3-2/4-1 teams of various types. Any of the AOE healers are great options, so include Melendor and Sabina (secondarily). CC (the Cat) was my TEST classing project - and has turned out for me to be a good Special use hero due to my lack of Sorcerers (Mits is 3/70, Thoth is cls1 and staying there).


My Strategy is Simple: It is based on Enabling Talent!

It is surprising how often a 3-6% chance fires...


Every hero should have their talent enabled for obvious reasons. Some Talents I agree are better than others. Those you consider worthless: that is a personal call. Revive is my favorite (and Evade has become my 2nd). If emblem collection efforts allow me, I will certainly push a favored talent over an un-favored during my classing per this strategy.


A) 1st Class every Legend I use regularly, in the order of use - as emblems allow.

B) 1st Class every Epic I use regularly, in the order of use - as emblems allow.

C) Further class Epics that have ‘special’ special skills to class level 7.

  • My Defense Team is 1st Classed.
  • My primary Raiding Teams are 1st Classed (or soon to be).
  • I have begun 1st Classing my primary War teams.
  • Legends again will not be classed beyond level 1, unless the emblems wouldn't be used otherwise.
  • This will continue until I’m done.
  • Should the field indicate Epics classed no longer compete with classed Legends (this is not matter of fact; it is to be determined over time) I would re-evaluate. This could be a very long time from now, perhaps not. At that point I should have enough resets saved up (I believe from steady war participation) that I can selectively reset my Epics of less value and move the emblems to my primary use Legends.


    Is this the correct strategy? I don’t know. I’m going to find out!


    Why did I choose class 7 as my EPIC target?
    It offers a fair % increase of the Talent being enabled as well a good marker to allow taking several to this level (as both emblems and time is limited for the goal) and I am 1st classing 20+ Legends. If I reach this mark across the board, I will certainly consider higher levels for those performing extraordinarily. Boldtusk has been such a hero to date.


    for example:
       Boldtusk 18% instead of 6%
       Grimm 18% instead of 6%
       Cheshire Cat 9% instead of 3%


    Most players appear to be classing their 'Defense' team as high as they can - with clear attempts at balanced classing (emblems allowing).


    Those of you without a strategy perhaps something to consider. Otherwise see you in what 3 months, 6 months, a year, a year and a half?


    Being I’m seeing classed 19 Epics already (a few) as well spotting Legends in the 9-12 range, Leaderboard access may be short lived for classed Epics. I'm shocked at the speed of leveling occurring even if it is semi-isolated, it is the Reality of it. The later range for Legends is a heap load of emblems within a single class to have obtained. It could be the timeline of Epic vs Legend classed heroes in terms of toe to toe capabilities, could be much shorter than expected.

    Class Leveling EPIC's?

    Brief including Examples: March 7, 2019

    Some have been curious what effect Class Leveling really has on your Hero's card/statistics. Those of you not willing to find out yet...

    Just look at some ole' favorites reborn (yes these are mine). BAD A#$ TUSK (cls 4) and KILLER GRIMM (cls 7). Look at their new talents in particular, their power (you knew this increased as well right?), attack, defense and health (I'm more concerned with getting the later 2 up for staying power) - click their pretty faces for a review.

    I understand waiting to see what happens... it's already happened. Funny in a sense just yesterday I was talking to a really good player who said they don't do the class quests, they aren't class leveling and have no plans to! I said "then you’re going to be in deep s#+@ in a couple months! You may as well pack up your account and go on a permanent E&P vacation."

    Some are weary to pull the Trigger... WHY? See the H.P.E.T. Report v3 for this Period in Review (2/17-3/6) and see what % of Top Players haven't Class Leveled.

    Should you Level EPIC's? Obviously if you’re an EPIC or newer player the answer is YES! I'm well into a LEGEND bench and I DID. Great new life into both these fellas and they did some wonders in the last WAR (3/6/19). I would advise you Class 1 level every hero you use on a very regular basis. You would be surprised how often a 3-6% chance goes off. Now do I use these guys on a very regular basis, no. I'm interested in the 'find out myself' approach (and already they are turning into something more valuable than I thought).
