Based on what I am reading here then there isn't much use for accuracy?! That kinda suck. I put it on my Bellower thinking that it will be helpful. It has an attack stat and small percent chances to add additional effects. I dont see how the suggested build make him viable when it doesnt even focus on adding attack (like percentages ) to him. I like the game but sometimes I think the mechanics do not make sense.
Accuracy has great usage!
Based on what I know about Accuracy, I can help you understand how it works in 4 Steps!
- STEP 1 - CHANCE % on a Hero!
The Chance percentage will define whether or not a hero will attempt to place a Debuff!
YOU WANT THE CHANCE % TO BE 100% OR HAVE THE ABILITY TO REACH 100%
If the hero can’t reach 100%, you will have problems placing Debuffs regardless of how much Accuracy you have!
Most hero which can’t reach 100% Chance are not good hero’s.
Not reaching 100% Chance is 1 key - tell - tell sign to watch out for!
If you get a hero with low Chance, You should ask around before using the hero’s!
You might not want to waste your time leveling up a hero who ends up being a bad hero!
If you acquire a hero, who starts off with a low Chance, Than has the ability to increase the chance, You should approach with caution!
Let me give you an example:
Let’s say a hero starts off with a 60% CHANCE.
Let’s say you look at the skill upgrades and you notice it has the potential to gain an extra 40% CHANCE.
On the surface, you have a great hero because it can reach 100% Chance!
BUT KEEP IN MIND, YOU WILL NEED TO USE TOMES TO LEVEL UP THE SKILL TO REACH 100%!
The hero is only good when you have him at 100%.
If you can’t get him to 100%, you should approach with caution!
You should consider whether or not you have the resources required to invest in the hero.
If you don’t, you may need to hold off!
ONCE, YOU HAVE A HERO WITH 100% CHANCE, YOU MOVE ON TO STEP 2.
- STEP 2 - Accuracy vs. Resistance
Your hero has 100% chance at this point!
Your hero will attempt to place a Debuff.
Think of it like a person shooting an Arrow or Gun.
When a hero has an 100% Chance, the hero will take aim on a target + fire a shot!
Whether or not the Arrow or Bullet hits the target depends on your Accuracy + Enemy Resist!
If your Accuracy is low, you will not hit the bullseyes (Hero).
You will miss.
If your opponent has high Resist, they will dodge/resist your shot.
They are not going to stand there like a dummy and let you hit them.
The amount of Accuracy on your hero will need to be more than the enemy Resistance!
Depending on who your enemy is, You will have to adjust!
I will now give you some information which could show you how importance accuracy & resistance really are!
I will give some examples based on test I & some of my friends have done!
- We believe the Base Clan Boss starts off at 50 Resistance + increases 30 Resistance per Mode
- Easy Mode CB - 50 Resist
- Normal Mode CB - 80 Resist
- Hard Mode CB - 110 Resist
- Brutal Mode CB - 140 Resist
- NightMare Mode CB - 170 Resist
We have had several End game players say once they reach 180 Accuracy.
They have no problems with the CB resisting there Poisons + other stuff.
You can see how Accuracy can be such a critical factor to have on your side!
It could be different between the extra damage for your team vs. no damage at all due to resistance!
In addition, we have come up with a base line Accuracy amount for Arena!
All hero’s start off with a Base Amount of Resistance which = 30.
A player with Resistance maxed out in Great Hall will gain + 80 Resistance!
We have total of 30 + 80 = 110 Resistance.
We factored in an extra 30% due to bad rolls (Players Roll Resistance on gears due to bad luck).
This brings us to a total Resistance amount of 110 + 30 = 140%.
Worst Case Scenario, We believe you could expect Arena players in top tier to have 140% Resistance.
This means your opponent might have same Resistance as the Brutal Mode Clan Boss.
We recommend having 150 Accuracy to ensure Debuff success in Arena!
We calculated the above amount would require 3 things (Accuracy Banner + Accuracy Masteries + 2 set Accuracy Gear or Accuracy Substats)
I believe that is what was needed in order to reach the 150 amount.
ONCE, YOU SEE THE POWER OF ACCURACY, YOU MOVE TO STEP 3!
STEP 3 - Affinity’s Match ups vs. Debuff’s
Affinities play a Role in whether or not a Debuff can be placed!
This is separate in relations to everything we have talked about so far!
So let me take it from the top and show you why this matters!
Let’s say you have a hero with 100% Chance.
Let’s say you have a hero with 200% Accuracy.
You would assume a hero with the above attributes would land his Debuffs vs. everyone he fights with Resistance below 190%.
This is actually not true!
The hero can only land a Debuff if the Hit falls under 3 categories: Crit Hit, Strong Hit, or Normal Hit.
If the Hit falls under the last category (Weak Hit), you will not do a Debuff.
This is were Hero Affinities play a role.
The Heroes are like Rock, Paper, & Scissors!
Magic (Blue) counters Spirit (Green) counters Force (Red) counters Magic (Blue)
Void (Purple) is universal Neutral
If you go into an Arena fight, you can see an arrow above the opponent hero’s.
Green Arrows - Affinities Advantage
Yellow Arrows - Neutral
Red Arrows - Affinities Disadvantage
Let’s say your hero is Kael (Magic Hero)
Let’s say your opponent has Templar (Green Hero) = You have Affinities Advantage = Green Arrow
Let’s say your opponent has Rival Kael (Magic Hero) & ColdHeart (Void Hero) = You are Neutral = Yellow Arrow
Let’s say your opponent has Bad-El-Kazar (Force Hero) = Affinities Disadvantage = Red Arrow
Heroes with a Red Arrow are dangerous!
You want to avoid targeting them with your Debuffer!
Weak hits can be done to hero’s which you have a weakness too.
You want to avoid them at all cost!
Your chance can be 100% + you could have 200 Accuracy + your opponent could have 0 Resistance!
It will not matter!
Affinity Disadvantage + Weak Hit = The Dead of your Debuffs!
KEY THING TO REMEMBER RED ARROW MEANS DEBUFF DANGER!
Run away! Debuff another day!
NOW YOU CAN HARNESS THE POWER OF ACCURACY!
*SINISTER LAUGH* MWWWAHAHAHAHAHA
