    @Hungryzombie There is a Reddit page for Raid: Shadow Legends. Someone there may be able to point you in the right direction. Coldheart is a game changer so focus on her and Kael. Get them to 6 stars.

    Hi Ayumilove,

    Really appreciate your post and the help you’ve been giving. I’m a new player and wondering where to put my scarce resources in developing my first team.

    My starter is Kael.

    The S and A tier heroes I have are:

    Uugo
    Golden Reaper
    High Khatun
    Infernal Baroness
    Skullcrusher

    Coldheart
    Diabolist
    Grappler
    Seducer
    Spirithost
    Warmiden

    Since books are really rare I was thinking of just working maybe 1 epic and the rest rares. Any team advice would be appreciated.

    Great help, really a nove job!
    One questione though: let’s say I have an A-ranked rare and a C-ranked epic: are the ratings comparable or the Epic would still be stronger?

    @Ayumilove
    This website is brilliant for champion search. I was wondering if another site exists or can be built that allows to play with relics on your champion to figure out stats combinations? Late stage players have many options but early stage players could use it to check the best combination for best combination of relics and stats. Simply switching relics is costly.

    It’s be 24 days since I started playing and I need some advice to focus a little bit. Here are my top champions:

    Lvl 50:
    Kael (full masteries – Gear 4*-5* lvl12-lvl16) – Booked
    (Working to up his rank and get him to Lvl 60 as a priority now)

    Lvl 40:
    Warmaiden – Booked
    MasterButcher
    Warpriest
    ShieldGuard – Booked
    Saurus – Booked
    Pain Keeper
    Shaman
    Valerie – Booked
    Judge

    Lvl 30:
    Outlaw Monk
    Armiger

    Epics:
    Ursine Icecrusher (lvl40)
    Cagebreaker (lvl40)
    Jizoh (lvl34
    Rowan

    Except Shaman, I have not used any other epic yet. My kael is good attacker but dies quickly in arena and cant solo chapter 11 on hard yet. Saurus is good build but lacks attack yet at lvl40.

    But I am confused that how to make a team from these titans for arena, and who would be best support in campaign to get all 3 stars.

    Any advise will be greatly appreciated.

    Kind regards.

    @Heggo: If you got a champion under the lower tiers like (B/C/F), before feeding it to another champion, take a look in its champion rating to see if it’s viable in some specific areas. A good example I could provide is Frozen Banshee. Although she is ranked quite low due to her small usability in many areas, she excels in Clan Boss and Dragon’s Lair Dungeon for her Poison debuffs and Poison Sensitivity.
