C. “Eh, Not Really Worth the Grind.”

The Talents under this section don’t add much to the hero’s power potential or have underpowered stats, be it due to constant nerfs or questionable changes, or requires a very long investment time that isn’t as rewarding as other Legendary Talents.

For Rare Talents, I consider:

  • Fortress’ Longtooth.
  • Idris’ Path of the Seeker.
  • Ozo’s Second Wind.
  • Petal’s Bouncer.
  • Reza’s Burning Barrier.

For Epic Talents, I consider:

  • Blackfeather’s Point Guard.
  • Fortress’ Critical Wounds.
  • Petal’s Kaboom Seeds.

For Legendary Talents, I consider:

  • Catherine’s Shockwave.
  • Celeste’s Galaxy Collapse.
  • Gwen’s Three of a Kind.
  • Inara’s Sacred Warrior.
  • Kestrel’s Piercing Shot.
  • Lyra’s Gythian Ward.
  • Reza’s Nether Rage.
  • Ringo’s Spiked Brew.
  • Taka’s Triple X-Retsu.

Break

However, pick what you like I always say. Sometimes, you only need one of the Talents in a hero’s set for you to play Brawl modes with them. Doesn’t matter if the other Talents are weak if one Talent is good enough, no?

Anyway, what are your opinions on Talents, be it as a whole or for specific Talents?

Let’s discuss below!


#2

anka rare vs ringo rare

you’ll see… the later is far more obnoxious and dangerous


#3

Burning barrier on Reza used to be amazing…until they changed it so it applies after the dash and not at the start. Nearly useless in a pinch now.


#4

Ok so it’s long so I kinda skimmed through it, but a few things:

  1. Gwen’s Rare, on CP Gwen, is pure destruction. I mean maybe it’s just me, I am a Gwen main and do have the talent lv12, but still…

  2. Idris’s Path of the Seeker used to be the most broken thing in the game, but SEMC realised this and changed the +28% or so WP and CP to -28% or so WP and CP and now it’s dud.

  3. Reza’s rare and legendary should both be B class imo, They do provide some fun and extra power.

  4. Why the hell aren’t Rona’s and Alpha’s legendaries in A class? When used well those destroy, Rona’s especially.


#5
