Roster Building

Chimbambu’s Role Summary

Advice on choosing classes for elemental barriers

Below you can find some example rosters to get you started on your hero rolling journey along with some examples of how each class can be built effectively.

With halfway decent skills and gear, that sample roster can clear most content without breaking a sweat. If you follow that roster, you will have three heroes per element, meaning you can tackle most content with elemental barriers.

It is very easy to set up with minimal investment required. Notice that most classes on that list are pretty easy to build and don’t require a promotion to work. There are also no T7s or classes that are particularly tricky to skill. No Champions are included in the team.

These things are all very intentional. It means that if you follow the sample roster, you’ll have a rock solid foundation to help you move towards later in the game. The teams are also three characters each which means you can easily slot in whatever Champion you want if there’s a gap you need to fill.
