Currently playing as a Witchdocter with a mainly Privateer subclass. My current favorites to take on Epic Battles (where you can choose your companions) right now are:
El Toro: First turn +Critical and +Dodge are great for chains and triggering riposte Monkey King: High damage, high dodge/block for Riposte Kan Po: Walk in Shadows first turn, Epic Critical Second with Relentless can get you a huge chunk of damage.
All three have Repel Boarders and Monkey King and Kan Po have flanking.
Typical Battle is I Juju, El Toro uses Spirito de Corps, Kan Po WiS, and Monkey King advances to draw fire and keep attention of advancing melee from triggering Kan Po's Repel boarders and wasting the WiS damage. Focus on spell casters first, then projectile firing targets, then melee if any are still standing. Circle the target with Kan Po and Monkey King to trigger flanking as much as possible and the target dies fast. Meanwhile, melee attackers approach them, get smacked with repel boarders and first strike, get blocked/dodged, and have to eat a riposte.
Battles are usually over before Juju wears off. :D
Favorite hands-down: Ridolfo Caporreo.* A great swashbuckler and has 3, not 1, not 2, but 3 Promos. This companion is amazing, but its Musketeer only so you have to buy him from crown shop for 4495. Dark Justin Holystone * I know it spelled it wrong.
My favorites are: 1: Kan Po (Goat Master), hands down, he has AMAZING damage, block, so he can get riposte really easily and often. 2: Monkey King, He has flanking and first strike and really good damage. 3: Dead Mike (Undead Avenger), He is just good all around and am so exited when i get him in battle.
1st: El Torro, his sword slinging action can take on any enemy 2nd: Sarah Steel, she has been very helpful in the fights and never gets defeated very much 3rd: Bonnie Anne, she has those burst fires and since I keep promoting her, her shots are becoming more effective, awesome! 4th: Milo Graytail, at first he wasn't causing very much damage when I first got him, but came along way and now he is making pretty good attacks 5th: Old Scratch, this one seems to amaze me, but at times he gets defeated too easy, when I promote him, he ends up being strong again, until we go to the next world after Mooshu
My favorite are by far keisuke yagi(kan pos "twin" from crown shop, ridolfo capoferro (he has 3 promotions) and louis le bisque (i just like him better then bonnie anne). Thats it, those are my favorite,
i have a tough choice between five. i have sarah steele dead mike monkey king bonnie anne and buffalo bill. all at max promotion. the team i like in regular battles is any of the melee and bill and bonnie so i have a balanced team. but its actually a hard choice. subodai is getting amazing now so it might be him soon but for now i dont know.
