So... I was looking over the Undead team the other day. I haven't tried them in PvP yet. I just use them to auto-run PvE dungeons.
How... exactly... are they supposed to be used in PvP? What's the best way to go about using them? It's probably because they've changed so much, I don't know what to do. But I can't really get a clear read on what their purposes are now.
From what I can tell, the ideal team is Yorick/Executum/Hansuke/Zomm, mainly because they're the ones who got changed. But something bothers me about Zomm and his new synergies. It almost seems counter-intuitive to his new 'Zomminion' gig. His Epic, Taste For Brains, and Fillet Zomminion all buff Undead ally Max Health. I believe his Epic buffs 20%, while the two abilities both buff 25%. Plus more if you have Zomminions on the field. However, it seems with Zomm, they actually want your allies to die. Then they come back as Zomminions. Yet Zomm essentially makes the Undead unkillable after only a couple of abilities and Epic attacks, plus he heals them for a ton!
Perhaps that's the point and I'm just missing it? It seems the Undead now benefit from both being wiped out early, and also from staying alive a long time. On one end, Zomm gets a bunch of minions, but on the other, the Undead team gains a huge amount of Health. So what should I try to do in terms of PvP? Should I focus on keeping his allies alive, or letting them die and become Zomminions?
Hansuke's changes also sort of contradict Zomm's. He gains +25% Atk for every ally who dies. That means a maximum of +75% Atk. However, Zomm doesn't come back himself as a Zomminion, so if everyone but Hansuke dies, you'll have a guy with +75% Atk and two almost-useless skeletons. Not much of a last stand, if you ask me. Perhaps the goal is to get two of the Undead to die, keeping Hansuke and Zomm alive? That way you get the most benefits. You get Zomm and his minions, and Hansuke with +50% Atk. On top of that, Zomm can continue to buff his Zommionions' and Hansuke's Health with his Epic and abilities.
I don't know. That just seems really hard to pull off. Should you just take the Runes off of Yorick and Executum, max out Zomm's Health and Defense, and then mix Hansuke so he has decent offensive and defensive capabilities? After all, the Zommionions' stats are based off of Zomm's, not whatever heroes they once were. If any of you have had success with the Undead in PvP, please explain to me what you're doing right. It's confusing!
