Conclusion



Summary


The recommended order to 6 Star heroes is the following:

1. Farmer

2. Tank for Wyvern 11 to 13

3. First Damage Dealer for Wyvern 11 to 13

4. Healer (if your tank does not heal)

5. (Optional) Second Damage Dealer for Wyvern 11 to 13


Early Game Priorities


Priority #1

Be able to level up your first few characters as fast as possible. This means you need a farmer to carry your team.



Priority #2

We recommend building a Wyvern Hunt 11 or above team because in Epic 7 Hunt is where we obtain all gears. Wyvern Hunt specifically drops Speed, Critical Hit and Hit sets which are highly desirable.

Speed Set in particular can be used on almost any hero. Crit Set can be used on many damage dealers, while Hit set is also good for certain PVE contents. ALl three sets are dropped in Wyvern Hunt.

(For more information about Wyvern 11, feel free to check out our Wyvern 11 Guide)


Priority #3

Be able to clear as many PVE content as possible, Labyrinth, Abyss, Hall of Trials and so on.


Notice how PVP is not mentioned in any of these priorities because we worry about PVP after we get our priorities done. While we understand the temptation to build the heroes you like immediately, but unfortunately this is one of those cases where you should get your priorities done and then you will be able to build whatever hero you want.



Benefit of Increasing Stars


Increases Attack, Health and Defense

Notice only Attack, Defense, Health changed

Unlocks more Awakening, which could then increase other stats.


Every 10 levels you can unlock 1 Awakening Nodes



Once you unlock the node, you can awaken it by spending the resource. Each node will give a standard Health and Attack increase on top of the bonus stat increase that is stated on each node.


Notice that Increasing level and stars only benefits Attack, Health and Defense without awakening bonus. So we need to focus on characters that will receive the most benefit from these three stats or Heroes that will benefit a lot from certain Awakening nodes.



Recommended Heroes to 6 Star First



Here are the heroes recommended to 6 Star in order:


1. Farmer

2. Tank for Wyvern 11 to 13

3. First Damage Dealer for Wyvern 11 to 13

4. Healer (if your tank does not heal)

5. (Optional) Second Damage Dealer for Wyvern 11 to 13


This order is recommended because the Farmer can also serve as your primary Damage dealer for PVE contents like Labyrinth, Abyss, Adventure and even PVP. Especially with heroes like Free Spirit Tieria that has no elemental disadvantage.


Tank and Healers are always needed because in the beginning you will be grinding through most of the fights. Survivability is key to defeating many bosses.


Starting from Wyvern 11 is when Ice element hero becomes crucial. Hence why number 3 to 5 are all about rounding out your Wyvern Team.


Lets go over this in detail:


1. Farmer


A farmer is someone that can solo adventure stage or with the help of another friend's unit. They usually clear stages fast and have high attack, Crit Chance and Crit damage.


Having a strong farmer has a few benefits:


1. Faster for leveling up your units


Having a strong farmer means you can farm higher level stages and can help level up your other characters faster because more difficult stages give more EXP.

Your Farmer can carry 3 very weak level 1 units that you want to level up at the same time.


2. Faster to get Catalysts

Farmer helps us accumulate AP faster to spend at the AP shops




3. Earn more Gold or equipment EXP


Higher level equipment will drop from more difficult stages. They can be sold for more Gold or they can give your other gears more EXP when they are fed into the gears you want to enhance.


Farmer Recommendations


Vildred, Arbiter Vildred, Free Spirit Tieria


Free Spirit Tieria is free farmer given to you that can farm all stages. We recommended just using her unless you have Vildred or Arbiter Vildred


See how we build her here



2. Tank for Wyvern 11 to 13 Hunt


The tank for Wyvern 11 is going to be very important. They need to be able to withstand many rounds of Wyvern attacks and will need to get as much Health and Defense as possible.


Because our initial gears may not have enough stats, we will have to rely on 6 starring the tanks gain enough health and defense for higher level Wyvern Hunts.
