Time Gate Thread?
By - BaronDoctor
For myself, though? Artemis, Korth, or Zo--oh hi Zorbu come to play again? Sounds like fun let's go.
Rip...I got Torogar, Faridah, and...Xander.
The only thing I don't have between them (other than epic items) is Faridah's achievement...hmm.
Guess I'll go with Torogar?
Yuck. The only one of those with any theoretical upside without a major rework is probably Torogar, so. Ew.
Yeah...I kinda hoped when they said a year-one champion would always be in free time gates they meant one you *didn't* have everything for.
not timegate, but this weekend is the first weekend since i've started that i have all the champions in the weekly chest.
Always a fun milestone. Next one is probably when you have the evergreens on the weekly chest purpled out so you have a shot at gearing *other* characters.
Thanks for posting. I've got Regis, Korth, or Jaheira. Any suggestions?
Regis and Korth are about even and both are pretty great. Jaheira's a good buffer who likes being in early to collect stacks for her buff, which is kinda enemy-type-specific.
I'd suggest Regis, as he's a year 1 champ who's never coming back again other than via time gate.
Thank you very much, Regis it is!
Hi, I'm new and my current wall is between lvs 250 - 300.
I got Melf, Vlahnya and Dhadius.
I'm leaning towards Melf because I have nothing except the core champ in that slot but are any of these good?
Melf is the best of those. He helps you go faster and is very easily positioned. The other two aren't super-great, which is okay because Melf is good at speed and speed is the number one way to get more power fast.
Oh he's a speed champ? Then I need him, the game progress is snail slow when you start out. Thank you!
He also requires a lot of favor to really get going though, as he's slot 12, and one of the more expensive slot 12s at that.
Well... that dampens my enthusiasm...
Le sigh, my luck with the free gates is just terrible.
He's still good to have for when you can reliably unlock him though.
boosts the dps of everyone in front of her
has an awesome ultimate that makes boss areas much easier
I've got Sentry (already have Stoki), Rosie, and Wulfgar. Leaning towards Wulfgar due to Icewind Dale content.
Wulfgar is Y1 and not coming back. That said, he's very situational and Sentry provides a speed bonus (via reducing area requirements, which stacks with every other speed boost). Rosie is garbage.
I'd suggest Sentry.
I already have Pwent, don't have a slot 3 swap yet, and Jim looks kinda bad anyway? Binwin then?
Jim's okay in the right formation. Binwin hasn't ever gotten to be as good as "okay". Go for Jim.
Ive been waiting!
I'm a super noob only been playing for like a week. This is my second time gate I believe and i have never seen an event. (I think its cool i see the introduction of Icewind though).
So i have the core champions, plus Hitch. My last time gate gave me Jahiera, but I end up using Jarlaxle (because of the gold find increase, especially with Hitch)
This time gate is offering me Stoki, Sentry, or Black Viper.
I think I should choose Sentry, but both Sentry and Stoki swap with Jarlaxle and Jahiera, so I'm not sure if that alone should make me choose black viper or not. I doubt it but just wanna make sure.
Tl;dr: Noob uses Jarlaxle over Jahiera, questions Sentry/Stoki > Jarlaxle. Black viper?
Ignore Black Viper. She's very niche, and the others are not.
Stoki is useful so long as double-dipping is a thing. Unfortunately it's... less of a thing now.
Sentry is useful in speed formations. That's a significant amount of time, so my vote is for Sentry.
Thank you! Getting Sentry 😎
Black Viper is another rogue (and would play into Jarlaxle, and for early days boosting that gold find is nice). She's not *good*, but you can only use 1 slot-4 champ at a time. Sentry does speed things up, but...given your slightly unusual circumstances I'm not sure.
Avren, Krond, Warden. I Know Avren is a must but he's going to be in an even in a few days, don't know a whole lot about the other two.
Krond is an okay DPS in a highly competitive slot (Shandie and Krull). Warden is an okay DPS/Support in a highly competitive slot (Avren).
Avren is going to be in an event in a couple days (but getting a head start on gear and variants isn't a bad thing).
I might say Avren anyway, but wait until you get a second opinion?
Warden is great swap for higher levels, because their debuff persists. Since Avren is in the next event, I'd say go for Warden. (And also they won't be available in events in the future)
Beadle, Rosie, Wulfgar
The only one I don't have is Rosie, so this is actually a question because she's so... utterly useless. Thoughts? My instinct says Beadle.
Beadle great. Rosie garbage. If your mind says "gotta catch 'em all", go ahead and collect Rosie for your bench. I'd suggest Beadle though, because there's just so many variants B+G are eligible for.
nova / jim(already have this one unlocked) / xander
Any suggestions? i'm not sure what they do (nor do i really use jim) - if you can say why one is better than the other i'd like to know :)
Xander is kinda use-impaired. Rule of thumb: always pick up new champs if available.
Nova is a great support / tank with the one caveat that she's competing for space with Avren. There will be times you can't use Avren, though, and those are times Nova will shine.
I'd take Nova.
strix or paultin (third option is pwent but i already have him)
Paultin does Gold Find and buffing in slot 4. Not the best at either, but not many champs do both.
Strix is a decent if somewhat dated DPS / support in a highly-competitive (Avren, Nova) slot.
I'll admit I'm a little biased towards Paultin, but he's just super-convenient.
Stoki, Artemis, or Spurt? I already have Stoki.
Spurt. Decent buffer/debuffer with the ability to buff from 1-2 range makes him pretty position-flexible.
Alliteration heavy this week: Sisaspia, Strix, Spurt. Already have Spurt.
Strix is good if a little dated and competes with Avren in the same slot.
Sisaspia is good, if mostly for her weird tags and ability to qualify for all patrons.
Hard to go wrong with either one you don't have.
Hi, I'm new and my current wall is between lvs 200 - 210.
I've got Briv, Binwin, Farideh. Can you give me some suggestions?
Briv is considered one of the better champions. Farideh and Binwin are both not great.
Briv is great. Binwin and Farideh never quite got all the way to "good"
>Thank you very much. I will take Briv.
Gromma, Omin, Jim
I'm thinking Gromma because the only tanks I have access to are Evergreens, which means I'm locked into Nayeli 99% of the time (no Dragonbait yet).
Probably Gromma, yeah, at least until you start picking up more available tanks.
Thanks! It's nice to feel like I'm starting to figure this stuff out.
stoki, sisaspia, jim? I'm leaning towards stoki because apparently she combos really well with krull.
combo-ed, they 'fixed' her - as far as I'm aware - depending on what in slot 1 Sis is maybe the best
Gromma (already have), Aila and Krydle.
Always take new champs, Aila over Krydle.
Aila is the easy choice.
Nerys, Omin, Dhadius.
Doesn't look like Dhadius is great, and already have Gromma for the same slot as Omin.
Omin is pretty good for gold-find. Nerys and Dhadius are both kinda weak.
That's what I was figuring to get him for. The 12 slots are my most useful champs now so can't see fitting in Nerys.
My options are Birdsong, Rosie, and Freely- I already have Freely. Recommendations between Birdsong & Rosie?
Birdsong not garbage and provides decent support.
I Have Regis, Aila, and Lazaapz. I just started a couple days ago, who should I focus on?
If you just started a couple days ago, you'll probably get the most immediate benefit out of Regis, as he's in slot 2 and very easy to use (strong buff, modest debuff, modest heal, gold-find, positionally-flexible).
Aila in slot 9 is one of the best tank / debuffers in the game and Lazaapz (also slot 9) plays well with the best DPS in the game (Zorbu).
None of them are bad, none of them are bad choices. I can see arguments for any of them.
Currently I'm stuck around 100 for how far I am, so I'll go with Regis
Stoki , Walnut or Sisaspia - all new
Walnut was tempting but Beadle will win out nearly everytime - Stoki, not so much now - Sis just won it for me
Sisaspia's good in probably the best-balanced-and-designed-slot (they all are good at what they do and they all do different things but none of them is an overwhelming favorite). Stoki's okay at wall and Walnut is okay if you need a tank out of that slot but not ideal.
Beadle/Grimm, Kthriss, Birdsong. Missing Kthriss, have Bird in greens/blues, Beadle in Blues/purples. Have most of the characters (K'thriss is the only 1 slot champ im missing), so who should I go for?
Rule of thumb: always pick up new champions. Go for K'thriss.
I believe I got shafted:
Strix / Môrgæn / Vlahnya
I'd go with Strix, based on her being year 1 so not coming back in events. No real best or worst choice there I think.
Thanks for the input, good point. Didn't think of her being year 1. Strix it is.
Strix is dated and competing with Avren in slot.
Morgaen has the potential to be halfway decent.
Vlahnya is pretty much outdone in every way by B+G.
Morgaen, Black Viper, Ishi. Already have Ishi, don't have the other two or know anything about how useful they are.
I was hoping for something better, but maybe one of them will be worthwhile, at least?
Black Viper is really not great, andMorgaen has potential to be a decent buffer, so I'd go for her.
Morgaen okay. Black Viper not even best DPS in slot.
Deekin, Havalar, Nerys
I only have last event's three, Briv, Spud, and Zorbu.
Deekin is one of the best speed champs. Deekin.
Definitely Deekin for speed.
Gromma Jaheria or Walnut.
J is the only one I’m missing of the three but Gromma needs better gear. Is Jaheria useful for anything?
J is good if you're going to use her the whole run, but I always want to use Sentry for speed, so building J stacks is harder.
Gromma, OTOH, is worth gearing up.
Always get new champs. Jaheira's the best buffer in slot and is good in situations you can farm her stacks (beasts, fiends, humanoids).
This is a hard one for me, I have all the heroes and don't really use these 3. Sisaspia, Warden, or Catti-brie?
Warden's competing with Avren and Nova and is gonna be hard to see a use case.
Catti-Brie has one ult-related gear piece, Sisaspia has two. I mean, of the two of them I'd call it a coin flip.
Yeah, I agree. I think I'm going Catti B.
Got Warden, Artemis and Dhadius. Already have Dhadius so between the first two
Warden. A good swap-in/out at higher levels because their debuff persists. Only drawback is they compete with Avren.
Benefit of the core and patrons means having more than one good character in each slot is a bonus. Warden it is.
Korth, Torogar and Birdsong. I have Torogar from the last event. I'm leaning towards Korth. However I do not have another another character in slot with Makos. Should I take Birdsong to work toward Modrons.
Hard to go wrong with either of them, but if you're leaning Korth for one reason or another go with that.
Korth is kina meh and in a competative slot, I liked birdsong but Lazaap is my go to most times now
My non-standard Champs are:
Krull / Donaar / Pwent / Farideh / Hitch / Torogar / Morgaen.
My options are Paultin / Nova / Nrakk (I've never seen any conversation about any of them on here).
Paultin's in slot 4 and has both gold-find and buffing. He's not the best for either but he's convenient.
Nova is the slot 11 character of choice if you can't use Avren (who's in the upcoming event).
Nrakk is part of the endgame-meta gold-find team and competes for Hitch's slot. Paultin or Nova...probably Nova if I had a guess.
Oof I got Wulfgar, Pwent, and Rosie, I guess I'll go with Rosie since she's the only one I don't have
Paultin, Nrakk, or Krydle? I’m also super new if that makes a difference
Hello all. Very new player, only have Strix from last week (plus Drizzst and Hitch)
Options are: Freely, Donaar, Gromma
Donaar, Evelyn, Omin (owned)
I gated for Krull already, so I have a swap for Slot 6 (Evelyn). Only have Celeste in Slot 2 (Donaar). Planning to pick Donaar, but want to get a second opinion first.
donaar's event is next week
Completely forgot to check how long til their events came around. Thanks for the reminder! Evelyn it is.
I've got Artemis, Nerys, and Birdsong. Any thoughts?
edit-removing glitch multi post, looks like I'm not the only one
Torogar, Evelyn, Shandie
Just starting out and picked up Briv in last week's time gate to tank. Both Evelyn and Shandie look good, but not sure which to pick.
Shandie. Best speedster.
shandie is a very good speed champ.
I get Briv, Warden and Dhadius. Don´t know which to chose.
Oof I got Wulfgar, Pwent, and Rosie, I guess I’ll go with Rosie since she’s the only one I don’t have
They're all slot 3 and I have Gromma already, so my thinking is go for Binwin because he's a year 1.
Spurt is possibly more useful, but Binwin is ok and has some small niche uses.
Spurt, Ishi (who I don't have yet), or Krydle?
Ishi, if you just want her to have her, otherwise spurt.
Havilar, black viper, binwin
I dont know much about any of these three, any advice?
Havilar. Good tank
Pretty noob here.
Walls between 200 and 300 depending on campaign.
Got Zorbu, Avren and Shandie. Have none and I'm at a loss
Shandie, besides from being a speed hero, seems meeh. Though I don't have any speed heroes so still might be an idea.
Avren buffs seems really strong (and fun). Is it?
Zorbu, get mentioned a lot as a good hero, but the is he really?
Thanks in advance.
Pick up Zorbu, he has a buff that uses his lifetime kills to make him stronger, so the earlier you can get him, the better. That said, Avren is one of the best buffers in the game, he will help you break that wall.
Reading some other posts and seems I have a chance to get Avren soon anyway?
I'll go with Zorbu. I missed the part where the stack persisted from run to run and though it was just that he didn't lose stacks on wipes or wave change.
Thanks u/chadokage :)
Avren is next week.
You have three *excellent* champs there. Shandie is a speed hero (and available for 2 patrons!), and she's not bad as a support either. It really hurts me to suggest passing her up, but she is probably the weakest choice here (ignoring the scheduling). Avren is a top-tier support, second only to Krull, but his event starts next week so you needn't feel bad about passing him up.
Zorbu is *the* DPS champ. Even if he wasn't the strongest choice in this set (and really only Avren and Krull could possibly compete), you should unlock him as soon as you can, for two reasons. The first reason is the thing that makes him the best DPS in the game: Lifelong Enemies. Those counters never reset, they just go up as you farm more. The sooner you get Zorbu, the sooner you can start ramping up those counters and making him stronger. The second reason is that his +1 INT feat is arguably the single best feat in the entire game (enables Strahd and up to +6150% damage in 13+ int buffs), and it can't drop if you don't have him unlocked.
Vlahnya, Lazaapz and Nrakk.
I'm hesitating between Lazaapz and Nrakk. I'm just starting the farm favor so I'm leaning on Nrakk. But then a tank for INT runs and evil teams is tempting.
How big of a difference does Nrakk do on an Azaka farm?
Not a big difference. I pretty much never use him.
If you need a tank, lazaapz is decent.
What’s the best choice between Krond, Paultin, and Krydle. I don’t have any of them yet.
Krond is a middling-strong DPS, Paultin is a middling support, and Krydle is hot garbage. Within their respective categories, Krond is probably the strongest, but a mid-strong DPS is less useful than a mid-tier support. So on that basis, I'd say Paultin. If you often find yourself wishing for a DPS with an AOE attack, Krond *does* have a spec for that.
If you're a completionist, you should note that Krond is a Y1 champ and you'll have to get him through time gates eventually. Paultin will still be around for one last event, since he's a Y2 champ.
Thanks for the info!
Avren, Gromma, or Paultin? I don't have any of them (and I have 2+ characters in all 3 slots, so it won't help me unlock multiple parties). I've heard Gromma is good, so I'm leaning towards her, but I wanted to get a more experienced opinion or two before committing.
Gromma, Avren is next week.
Thank you! That makes it an easy choice.
Avren is by far the best but his event starts next Wednesday, so I'd want to unlock someone else.
Gromma is pretty good, although since the change to avoid double-dipping on debuffs she's not spectacular. She can tank but she's not very tanky, but she's a decent non-positional support with Circle of the Arctic. Paultin is decent, but not great. I'd say he's a little worse than Gromma overall, but he does offer gold find (on the other hand, he shares a slot with Jarlaxle, who offers far more gold find than he does). I'd say that Paultin and Gromma are roughly even, with Gromma having a slight edge.
There's just one other factor to consider: Gromma is a Y1 champion, so if you want her you'll be spending cash or a time gate (and if you want her achievement for all three variants, at least three time gates). Paultin is a Y2 champion and hasn't had his last event yet. You can get him and all of his achievements without time gates. So based on that I'd strongly recommend Gromma.
I'm looking at Nova, Catti-brie, or Shandie; I don't have any of them, and the only things keeping me from going for Shandie is that I don't have anyone to switch for Jamilah, and I already have Krull. I've got Jim/Farideh, so Catti doesn't seem appealing.
With Avren coming up in the next event, I'm wondering if Nova/Avren is a better "problem" to have than Shandie/Krull?
Shandie, unless on of the others will let you get modron automation.
Looks like it's Nova then, since that's the only slot without a second. Thanks for the advice! :)
You are going to love the core. Makes a massive difference!
Shandie / Krull isn't a problem. Shandie rolls speed, Krull rolls push. That's a pretty clear "pinch-hit" / rotation kinda thing.
Beedle, Deekin (already have) or Jim ?
Beedle is probably better than Jim overall, but I like Jim more. Beedle can be a great support but long rest stacks are not my favorite mechanic. Jim is a decent support for other magic users, a decent DPS, and he's got some niche applications. He can turn minions into mimics, which is nice for Azaka farming. If you're using Krull, you can get stuck on boss levels with one minion left because Plague: Traitor can't do anything with only one target, and Jim's ability to turn minions into abyssal chickens can let you clear the level.
Beadle. Even without playing with the Rest stacks he's still a pretty solid buffer and available pretty much everywhere.
Freely (already have), Black Viper, or Barrowin. Egh.
Freely, if you don't have full epics.
Freely is the only really good champ there, but it's not wise to pass up unlocks. Some variants get super restrictive and an extra body is always at least a *little* helpful.
So, between BV and Barrowin:
* Barrowin is a Y1 champ, so time gates are the *only* free option. BV is Y2, so she'll be around in one last event.
* Black Viper requires farming, like Zorbu. This is a pain. Unlike Zorbu, she's got a finite set of bonuses that you unlock. Also unlike Zorbu, she is hot garbage even after a lot of farming.
* Black Viper is a pure DPS champ and offers precisely 0 utility to the rest of the party. If she's not your primary DPS, she might as well not be there (other than hit-based targets). She's...probably not going to be your primary DPS.
* Barrowin is a support champ. She can eventually off-tank (her overwhelm goes from 5 to 20 at level 210, but you *need* another tank to boost her HP), provides healing (nothing spectacular), and provides a reasonable amount of all champ damage. Blessed Hammer has potential to be a good boost, but IIRC it's bugged and doesn't work.
TLDR: Barrowin, because she'll actually be useful on occasion, and she's Y1 so you have to use a time gate on her.
Thanks, folks. Both had very good points, but I felt like I should be going through an ESPN paywall to read HWBTUW's analysis! Good stuff! So Barrowin wins by a beard.
Nova, Evelyn, or Jim? I already own Nova, but zero gear.
Strix or Korth?
Havilar, Alia, Ishi
I have couple swaps for slot 9, 10
Ishi is my first swap for Jarlaxle
If ishi gets you the modron core, then ishi.
Avren, Rosie (Already have), Xander?
I know Avren's event is soon, but should I go ahead and grab him or go for Xander?
No great choices. I would probably get Avren now, as it still gets you two extra gold chests compared to unlocking next week.
One of the best in the game, trash, or garbage.
I usually wouldn't suggest someone with an event this close, because you should usually take an unlock over gearing up and Avren's event is so close he should probably be counted as unlocked...but in this case, I'd take Avren. Avren is just *so good* and Xander is so bad that it's not worth giving up the gear.
Havilar, Nerys, or Barrowin?
Nerys is actually pretty good but she's in Zorbu's slot. Worth considering if you don't have Zorbu, but in that case I'd recommend picking up Zorbu soonish with a manual time gate so you still won't see a lot of Nerys.
Havilar is a pretty good tank and a minor speed champ (one of her imps provides double progress, but only from fiends). Probably the most useful from this set.
The only reason to pick Barrowin here is for completionism. She's from Y1 so if you want her, it will have to be through time gates. The other options are much stronger.
Havilar, unless on eof them would let you unlock the modron core.
Paultin (PBBBBB), Dhadius (BBBBPP), Lazaapz (not owned)?
Laz is solid go for her
Lazaapz. I think I'd recommend Lazaapz even if you had all three of them.
Sisaspia, K'thriss or Birdsong? don't have any of them yet.
Probably Birdsong. She's my go-to DPS for Strahd. Krond works pretty well too, but Birdsong can be used as a support if necessary. She's not *great* as a support, but it's a good option to have. If you have Keen Mind for Zorbu, she's a much lower priority. She *is* a Y1 champion, if that matters to you.
If you have Zorbu's Keen Mind feat and aren't worried about collecting Y1 champions, then I would recommend Sisaspia. She's not as consistent as I like, so she's not on my regular comps, but she's been surprisingly handy for variants.
K'thriss isn't *bad* or anything but I don't find myself using him very often. Pick up up when his last event rolls around.
I do happen to have Keen Mind, so I guess i'll grab Sis. Thanks.
I got Gromma, Melf, and Paultin. I was looking to get Gromma with gate pieces, so that was a nice surprise, but Melf seems like another great choice for speed. I have no idea about Pultin. Any thoughts? I can activate my 12-slot to a moderate level if it helps and I have a good number of tanks already (though more never hurts).
I love Gromma. Easy to place and helps me push to higher levels. Melf is a speed champ that can help you accumulate gems if you're willing to grind. Paultin is a distant 3rd
I got Beadle&Grimm, Evelyn, Qillek. I have none of them. I am thinking I want to go with Evelyn because it will give me 2 on that slot and if I am reading this right, she is a year 1 event champion and I cant get her outside of time gates? Can anyone confirm or advise?
B+G and Qillek are far higher priority picks than Evelyn.
B+G is eligible for pretty much almost every variant. Qillek provides a global heal.
Evelyn, on the other hand, is a mediocre tank.
Ok, I am going B+G then. They are buffed this weekend too. The biggest thing I had going with Evelyn was filling a slot that I needed in order to unlock multiparty, but I have a few more open to go and that same slot will get filled during Liars Night anyhow. Thank you
It sounds like you're a newer player. In that case, I wouldn't worry too much about year 1 champions. Don't *avoid* them, just don't give them special weight for choosing a time gate. Just work from the merits.
Advice given on the premise that you are a newer player:
* Evelyn is a year 1 champion, but there's no rush to get her. She's just not that good. She's one of the weakest champions in slot 6. If you're a completionist and can't bear the idea of using a time gate to get a year 2+ champion when you could unlock a year 1 champion, go ahead and get her. If you are *extremely close* to unlocking Modron Automation, by which I mean you will qualify soon without relying on manual time gates or getting lucky with free gates, go ahead and get her. Otherwise, steer clear and use your next available manual time gate to get Krull. He's in the same slot and one of the best champions in the entire game.
* Qillek is a pretty good support in general. He's particular about positioning, but it's worth the effort. He's a viable healer, and if you're facing whole-party damage he's the best by far. He has synergy with Sentry and Aila, who are both good in their own right. The main problem I have with him is that he shares a slot with Briv.
* Beadle & Grimm are *really* good as a support, and okay as a DPS. Managing Long Rest can be annoying, but it can be automated with a familiar for only mildly worse results, or ignored for moderately worse results. If you don't have a lot of champions to choose from, they would be an *excellent* choice. Variants that restrict which champions you can use are daunting when you don't have many options in the first place, but B&G are allowed into most of them.
Donaar, Lazaapz, Ishi.
I have Drizzt unlocked but don't have swaps for Celeste/Jarl yet. Still fairly new and don't know which to pick.
Lazaapz. An evil tank that is versatile and can be used as a support as well. I never use Ishi. Too much competition in that spot. You'll be able to unlock Donaar next week
I am a new player and don't really know what I'm doing with the time gate.
I got: Strix, Vlahnya (Have Delina and Hitch), Krydle
Dang. Not great choices. I will say Vlahnya. She's helpful when clearing out mobs on boss levels with her ultimate
I got Stoki, Morgaen, and Turiel. Who should I choose?
I'm going to suggest Stoki. She's a Year One Champion and she helps with Gold find.
Barrowin, Pwent, Vlaynha.
I know the real answer is none of the above.
I ultimately chose Barrowin since she's a Year One Champion
Should I have chosen someone different?
For this an overview of your champs would be helpful. But if you have most of them, Barrowin is pretty fine.
Strix, nova or black viper?
strix or nova based on what utility you want. nova is buffer but avren in the same slot is better, strix is dps but many dps in other slots are better "zorbu, jim, jarlax,...etc".
if in general you have very few tanks, Nova might be the better choice. If your character pool is decent, probably Strix is.
Got Zorbu, Briv and Paultin.
Already have Zorbu which has 4 blues one purple and still one greenie.
briv is a solid choice. a most have
Thank you very much !
Strix , Aila and Omin... Any suggestions ?
I have Gromma that can be in Omins position.
aila is very good, one of the best.
omin is a must have for his gold increase (a multiplier of 100 or more "1.0%+04" )
if you are at a stage where you run azaka farming omin is better. if you lack on gold omin can give you huge boost to gold find.
Regis, Donaar & Jaheira. Total noob, so none of this means much to me yet.
Still running Grand Tour with a team of Tyril; Makos & Asharra; Calliope, Celeste & Hitch; Jamilah & Turiel (last week's Time Gate); Nayeli. I make enough to unlock Arkhan, but haven't figured out if I need to swap them in for anyone yet.
all three are good champs, but Donaar is up in the event in 4 days. Here's a [calender](https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/418175513186795550/766465590470115358/unknown.png)
I'd probably go with Jaheira, she's a good buffer. Regis is too, but there's a lot of good buffers in slot 2 and only 1-2 in slot 4
Regis is one of the better year 1 champions. He's a great support (although pretty bad as a healer), and since he's from year 1 time gates are the only way to get him. I'd go with him.
Jaheira isn't bad, but since she's so dependent on specific enemy types you might struggle to use her effectively. You'll want to look up each adventure that you're doing to see which specialization will be most useful.
I personally love Donaar but he's not the strongest. You'll also be able to get him next week in an event. Do not waste this time gate on him.
One last bit of advice--"enough to unlock" Arkhan is probably not enough to use him well. You'll need enough to get to his specialization (e27 gold), and some gear for him. Bulk Up is the less useful spec, but it's the only helpful one until you've got at least a blue shield for him. With a blue or purple shield, Usurped Power becomes useful and it's a fun formation building challenge (you want as many buffs as possible landing *next to, but not on* Arkhan).
Nova, Barrowin, Spurt.
I only started like 2 weeks ago, so i only have default champions and Catti-Brie and Hitch unlocked.
Nothing great. Nova is decent, rather good, but you'll get Avren in a few days, which is the best unless unavailable, which he is actually decently common. Barrowin can be a nice off-tank, but generally is worse then Tyril. I personally like Spurt, because he's a cool character in the RPG, but it's difficult to use him while you need Nayeli to tank.
Yeah, I fear there's arguments for all of them. Personally I'm more of a "wanna catch them all" and would go Barrowin.
Warden, Birdsong, and Krydle.
This is an interesting week. (Owned are Krull, Stoki, Zorbu, Gromma, Melf, Sisaspia, Regis, Donaae, Freely, B&G, Nova, Feeling, Jaheira, Korth, Shandie, Torogar, Qillek, Omin, Evelyn, Narrowing, Spurt, Lazaapz, Turiel, Jim, Walnut, Binwin, Ishi, Wulfgar, Farideh, Pwent, and Xander)
don't know if you are still waiting for an answer or you are trolling. but if you are really asking then warden is the only useful of those 3.
Krond (Shandie, Krull)
Morgaen (Drizzt, Lazaaps)
or Black Viper (Farideh, Jim, Freely)?
Black Viper is trash tier even fully farmed, and it takes quite a bit of farming to get there. Do not waste a time gate on her. She's Y2 so you'll be able to pick her up and do her variants when the event rolls around.
Krond is Y1, so he's got that going for him, but not much else. He's a decent DPS but "decent" doesn't cut it for a pure DPS character. Get him if you're a completionist.
Morgaen is a reasonably good support. By far the best option here.
