    Maybe you can create a "Least Useful" poll and see what you get.

    Only need one option for that poll.

    Kreel is only bad by Heroic hero standards. Otherwise he's quite balanced and still more powerful than most of the bronze rarity heroes. I'm actually happy he's so weak, can you imagine if he made the reptile team any stronger?

    Secondly, Bauble being the first reliable Construct healer was a huge deal for me. At first I underestimated his usefulness but he can potentially make a Furnace 1v4 an entire team of enemies in PvP (technically 2v4 but you get what I mean).

    Plus, with the energy gain from Ferno (who's still useful of course, but not amazing), he can pump out an ability basically every turn.

    Most of them have their uses, but I went with Hopper because she is the one I've used most often in PvP. See an Emily or Leo or both on the defense and Hopper is in my team.

    Ironically if it's just Emily I usually find Shadowblade kills Emily outright anyway so Hopper wasn't required, but Hopper has some nice other effects that help justify her use.

    Hopper can effectively solo the ToP with enough damage and Crit Chance.

    Koros purging all the buffs and dealing insane damage is game-changing versus almost every type of team (Constructs, Shade teams, Reptiles, Zen)
    There were a good 3 or 4 months where I did literally every raid using him.
  • oredithoredith Member
    Ferno
    ferno because he basically neutralizes fast defenders when you're attacking.

    I wouldn't call a strong AoE "game breaking", we saw the same deal when Icepick and Viperia came out. If you mean game breaking as in it's ridiculously overpowered and breaks the game by ruining the fun, then yeah.

    Something ridiculously overpowered that ruins the game is certainly game-breaking. I admit game-breaking may have been an exageration. Also, the thread is how useful is the hero, not which is the best for the game, for which it would be a competition between Bauble and Lily, who are both very good heroes that are good on their own but also benefit the team, and are pretty balanced.

    To be honest, I'm surprised he hasn't commented on this thread yet.

    I was tempted to vote for Koros, but he totally missed 3 out of 4 of the heroes in my last PvP battle. I'm tired of watching him blow dry the ugly hair of MK's skin.

    Lily, for killing the god-awful DR defense meta. She is useful precisely because she rarely needs to be used.

    i dislike DB's tactic of "fixing" mechanics by releasing new heroes to counter it. lily and ferno.

    In some cases, it works quite well, but I agree that often it just delays the problem. For example, when Shade was released, he was a counter to Kai, but now Kai is fine and Shade is the one who desperately needs a counter. When some ultra-fast light hero that doesn't allow the enemy team to have any buffs, ever, is released to counter him, they will be the new problem.

    He is a bird like him and helps with engineering...

    You know if anyone abuses me, I can find their I.P. Right?

    Well I think Ferno balanced things out quite nicely. Not only does he lower the Attack of MK, Shade, Ponti, all the heavy hitters, but he's not too strong himself. Flying teams aren't exactly the best idea most of the time, and that's fine. There shouldn't be one go-to team that solved ALL your problems. That was the Undead team or Goblin team before MK's buff and Koros. I just don't think enough people know how to use Ferno to his maximum potential yet which is why MK and Shade are still so prevalent. He really does do a great job of tearing apart Dark teams with Shade on them and MK/Furnace/Emily teams. It's all about placing him just right so your heroes won't have their Atk lowered when they go, but the enemies will. I just wish Zen could remove the Atk-, it would open up a lot more synergy with him.

    That said I'm sure the vast majority of players right now don't have Ferno, or do but don't have a solid Flying team or runes yet. That's why I want them to buff the older heroes up, so that they're actually useful again. It seems their strategy is to release an Epic for an older hero and rework them with the release of their Epic. That's a good idea, but I also remember they used to rework 4 or more heroes at the same time. Not to the same extent, but it helped.
