Preface

Dearest Reader,

In case you didn't notice, I split up the thread into a booklike format because it is too long, but I would be thrilled if you read all of it. I hope you find the answers to all your PvP questions here, and enjoy reading the guide!

Your friend,
Mr. Cats

    Building Your Team

    How are you supposed to know which heroes to pick? If they all have a role, then who do I choose? The answer is choosing the counter to whatever is popular on defense, which may end up changing in the future, once enough people figure out how to beat these defenses, certain heroes get tweaked, or new heroes are introduced. To know what is popular on defense, all you must do is PvP long enough to find out or look around on the forum. For example, the popular defenses now consist of 3 main combinations, or variations of the 3. All of them will take some luck to successfully beat, but in this PvP meta, where defense has the upper hand, there is not nearly as many "guaranteed wins." These combinations are discussed in Chapter 4. A strategy that you could have in choosing which heroes to upgrade for PvP could be to pick the heroes that belong to these counter teams. There are many ways to counter most teams, which especially helps at lower levels when not everybody has access to these 3 combinations. Because of this advantage at a lower level, another strategy for PvP could be to stay low level and focus on PvP and stocking up on gold, scrolls, gems, and evos. This can be done by completing daily quests which do not give player xp. Do not accept the reward if it gives player xp. Also, you do not have to let your stamina go to waste, because you can retreat from the dungeons you run and still get honor scrolls from friend summons, any evos you find along the way, and the gold received from killing monsters and clicking shiny objects. Due to the +2 xp of raids, it can't be done indefinitely, but you will be able to hold off levelling much longer doing these things. If you want to level slower than normal, but you still want tokens, a strategy could involve only retreating when it is a wooden chest and not accepting quest rewards granting xp. You will be able to have more fully upgraded heroes if you do this, and you will end up having more ascensions for your level, and you can even max some characters at a very low level from honor summons.

    Part 2:

    Introduction

    We are in the Golden Age of defense. And I mean actually golden, because your chest is full of gold that wasn't stolen. Defense became much easier and if you choose the strongest defense you possibly can, even if your stars and ascensions for your level are average, you probably won't get attacked much (except at a very high level when people attack solid defenses for fun). This part will be much shorter, but there is still some level of strategy that should be involved when picking your defense.

    - Samurai Takumi: Can't miss, Can chill after stampede to stop enemy skills (unconfirmed)

    That's a definite. If he hits you. Chill stops heroes gaining energy. After stampede, all heroes have a -1 on energy. Then takumi comes in for the chill. Make sure stampede happens first though. ;)

  • I know it works on defense @D3athWish but did you test it on offense? I know it sounds like it should work but I read that it didn't for someone.

  • My Bovus doesn't usually survive the first round of AOE for me to try. I'll give it another go when I think Bovus will come out of round 1 ok.
