Background:
Admiral Kreel was the greatest warrior the Reptile armies have ever known. Able to take down entire armies on his own, using natural water affinity and tides to his advantage, disrupting enemy formations and wreaking havoc through their ranks, he quickly rose to prominence, taking control of the Gorgon’s Navy, and always fighting in their name. He and General Krexx came to vie for their notice regularly, competing to see who took down the bigger conquest, until fortune favored Krexx. He and Kreel encountered a legendary behemoth, who froze most of their naval army. Both reptiles launched themselves at the titan in a fury, and Kreel scored the first hit, held the monsters focus, and was beginning to gain the upper hand. General Krexx, in a stunning move of treachery, left Admiral Kreel to search for an even greater fight instead, and Kreel was sucker punched with the sudden betrayal, frozen solid, encapsulated in a block of magical ice and left adrift at sea. Enough time has passed, for the magic of the ice to fade away, and Kreel has returned to world, eyesight hindered from the long sleep, to find the Gorgons and seek vengeance on the one who betrayed him.

Most Hated Hero: General Krexx

Element: Water: +30% bonus against FIRE enemies, -25% vs NATURE enemies.

    Shouldn't that be -25% vs NATURE enemies?

    Either way, looks pretty cool!

    @Joel , can you please confirm the verbiage regarding the daily quests for 100 token unlock?

    is that including the 50x repeatable quest to attempt pvp with reptile on your team 4x?

    if so, that's 200 raids in 4 days, or 50 a day, which well exceeds the free tickets per day.

    i'm not looking to argue about if that's a good or bad thing, i just want to know if that 50 tokens is factored into the 100 to unlock, or if that's in addition to the 100 that will be rewarded from other quests.
    soon™ - it's the answer to everything

    That's weird, though. Krexx grants Reptiles immunity to Freeze, and Kreel would have natural Freeze resistance, being Blue... unless he wasn't Blue before the battle, and him being perma-frozen made him into a Blue hero?

    krexx ran away leaving kreel to fight alone so basically krexx took the immunity with him I suppose

    How would backsplash counter Koros? He just will kill everyone except himself.

    The best counter to Koros is still Indigo. It was even his most hated hero when he came out. She pretty much always either Silences or kills him outright. I can see how this guy would be good against Koros, but normally Koros is the first Normal speed hero on the enemy team after Shade and/or MK, so Kreel wouldn't even really have a chance to Backsplash him... and yeah, even if he did, he's still doing full damage to your team.

    So it looks you you need to finish Kreel's Recruits. That's to bring a blue hero into a PvP battle 8 times, right? Sounds like you have 1/8?
    Just attempt/win 7 more PvP raids with a blue hero on your team, it can be any blue hero.

    Agree with your kreel analysis but not the indigo part. This usually is not a situation where one or the other is acceptable. Yes I am almost always seeking to either silence or kill koros before he gets to go but a vast majority of the time only one of those options is acceptable. If I am seeking to silence koros it is probably because if I kill him leo or emily will revive him and kill me. Killing koros is obviously ideal anytime there's no reviver but when I plan on killing him he better actually die because his basic attack is pretty deadly. If I didn't bring emily because I counted on him dying and he is only silenced he could easily hit the wrong guy and cost me the match.

    I like Indigo but reality is she's just not useful in PVP. Her first move has a lot going for it but its all chance of this or that. You can't actually count on her for anything, it's a RNG fest. If you rely on her match after match the only thing that is certain is that she'll keep ending your streaks over time and frustrating you.

    If I want koros silenced - rocky. If I want him killed - shade (or maybe SB situationally). If you can't count on hitting him since rocky added dodge - leo or krex and the snakes.

    Indigo is great for pve though, love the energy gain there.

    Because he's Water element he doesn't get much attack outside of his Red/Purple slots and maybe a Yellow Champion rune if you've got one. He has a decent amount of bulk though, and doesn't really gain any benefits from Crit. I'd say he's pretty straight forward, Life and Bulwark for his Blue slots (Doesn't really matter which, both his Defense and Health are already pretty solid). Battle/Power for his Red/Blue (Although if you have the resources, Vampiric runes wouldn't be bad since Skill affects Drench from his third ability, and I think it might even affect the damage reduction from his That's A Moray... not sure though). Yellow is sort of up to you, Champion is probably best, but if you don't have one, Bulwark, or any of the special material runes (ones at the bottom that need medals/fangs) will do.

    How many yellow champions are there, and is Kreel even on the long list for one?

    Sigh... Champion runes. If you're bad at PvP though, I guess you would never have heard about them.

    I haven't been counting. But even finishing in top 100 would give you, what 4? 6? yellow Champions.
    So I ask, Is Kreel on the short list of heroes for those runes?
