Why Not Send Trickster?


Trickster and I have a love/hate relationship.

First and foremost, you DO NOT need Trickster as your leader to get his research or hunting boosts. They are Administrative Battle Skills and are active no matter what. Unless he's your leader and has been captured, you're getting those boosts as soon as you unlock them.

Next, he is NOT a war hero. I've been asked, "What do you have against Trickster? He's got Squad damage for ranged troops. I can send him with my ranged troops and he'll give me that boost."

Squad damage does do something, but lets be realistic. Tracker, Death Archer, and Snow Queen are going to be more effective in the long run because of their Ranged ATK battle skill. The squad damage boost is limited to 1/4 of that particular troop type. Ranged attack battle skill effects every single ranged troop. And if someone has a legendary Trickster, but Tracker and Snow Queen are still uncommon and you're running ranged enough that this is even a topic of concern, it might be time to sweep some stages and collect metals.

Nine times out of ten, the Squad boost alone just plain isn't as good as the Squad boost plus an ATK Battle Skill and I will always advise to never send Trickster into battle be it Showdown or real. If you're just starting out and you're only sending ranged troops, then maybe send Trickster if he has a higher grade than your other ranged heroes.

I love Trickster! He's awesome! He's a really useful hero! His Administrative Battle Skills are amazing! But he's not a warrior. Use him in the Colosseum and doing Hero Stages. Have him hunt monsters that are weak to physical attacks. Send him to gather to get a command boost to send more troops. But when it's time to fight with troops? Let him cheer you on at home.

Darknest Rallies

T's Ultimate Darknest Rally Guide Victory over a Darknest isn't just about how many troops you send at it. It's about which troops and why. Sure, you might be able to beat it by just throwing a ton of troops at it, but you'll end up with more wounded than necessary. Why Do Darknest Rallies? It's basically free loot. Random, but you don't need to do much for it other than hold the rally correctly and heal some troops. Troops sent to a Darknest will never die unless you don't have room in your Infirmary. There are 5 grades of essence just like gear and heroes and... well, pretty much everything. The grade goes up with the Darknest levels. Level 1 nests give you common up through level 5 nests giving you legendary. Theoretically, the higher the essence, the better the loot. I say theoretically because sometimes you cook an epic one for 12 hours and still get something useless to you and other times you do a common one and get something you need

Heros: Types, Grades, Levels, & Ranks

There are four different types of characteristics that are important determining factors of various aspects of a hero. - Attribute type determines which basic attribute increases ATK. - Grade determines the boost percentage of the Battle Skills. - Level determines the amounts for the Hero Skill bonuses and the ability to equip Trophies. - Rank unlocks Battle and Hero Skills and Trophies affect the hero's statistics. For monster hunting, hero stages, and the Colosseum, heroes with a higher level and rank tend to be more important than heroes with a higher grade. Grade does also add to their statistics, so a higher grade is better than a lower grade, but in general, grade is not a huge factor for anything but their Battle Skill %. The opposite is also true. If you're looking at Battle Skills, a hero with a higher grade will be more effective than a hero at a higher level or rank. Rank does increase command, which will ultimately give you more troops and a hero with
