Hello, I am a Party Level 40 Player, fairly new to Soul Hunters and I have 20 heroes as follows:
Arcturus Xanos Ezio Firehawk 3 Star Level 40 Blue +2
Gale Ariel Garrick 2 Star Level 40 Blue +2
Alana 3 Star Level 40 Blue +1
Flora Lucius Vincent Leon Cara 2 Star Level 40 Blue +1
Elric Esabel 2 Star Level 40 Blue
Drago 1 Star Level 40 Blue
Ember Octo Mortus Boomer are pretty underleveled and I havent touched them much.
Can someone help me pick some good defending/attacking teams and maybe some general tips?
THANKS !! :)

Hi Slim, you have got some good heroes in your arsenal. It's difficult to say what's going to be best because that changes depending on level and fusion as well as the meta on your server. A lot of players in the earlier levels seem to do well in the arena using aoe teams like you appear to have the resources for. Ezio, Xanos, and Firehawk are probably doing great if I had to guess, and if so, just experiment with who you feel supports them best. Lots of players like Ariel at first, but as with most aoe heroes, they start to do less significant damage after reaching higher levels. I'm not saying you shouldn't make use of her, I just don't want you to be surprised and frustrated later if you do choose to keep up with her.

Of the heroes you currently have max level, I think Esabel and Lucius are going to underwhelm you the most. Leave Ember and Boomer on the sidelines.

If you're enjoying Xanos, keep buying his stones from the arena shop. Other heroes to consider buying are Ethera and Namtar, but they probably won't be as impressive until later in the game. However, Ethera can be very useful in the crucible of fire if you decide to summon her.

From the guild shop, you'll want to get Jasmine first. She's helpful in a lot of instances, not least of which is the crucible. Later in the game she's less dominating, but I think you'll still be glad to have her.

From the crucible shop, I typically point players to Dokras and Tholin. If you love Ariel, don't let me stop you, though.

And how could I forget -- you should get Arachna asap. She's a powerhouse.

I hope this is useful, and let us know if you have more questions.

Thanks for the advice!!
So, i like Ariel a lot and I'm concentrating on Ethera in the arena shop atm, I'm going to get Arachna as soon as i can, because she's really good from what I've heard. Also, do you think Xanos can solo tank with 2-3 aoe dps and a support in the team? Thanks :)

I think Xanos can sometimes tank safely depending on who he's facing and his relative strength to the enemies. My guess is that your idea would struggle against a lot of disruption, e.g. Cara, Kaneq, etc. Otherwise I bet it'd do alright. However, I suggest you give it a shot and find out how it works for you. Nothing is certain until you test it out.

Thanks again Hobags I'll try it out and probably widen my team comp if it doesn't work.

Garrick is beast number 1 imho. At level 86 he's criting for over 100k and average of like 60k on his build up spells. His "gifts" change the whole game and even if he dies, they stay in place. Arac as they said is a MUST HAVE too. If any direct physical damage hits her she puts a bleed on them and it owns. Perfect for tanks and especially Leah and Ezio. I keep hearing that Arial dies off at later levels, and she does a little, but she's so powerful at your level and still usable at 87. Not sure at 90, but she has an Awakened spell that sounds pretty beast also. STOP with Esabel, Lucious, Ember, and Boomer. I won't sugar coat it, they suck at like level 80. Good on paper bad in reality. Good luck bud!

Thanks for the advice !! I've heard SO MANY posts and things about how Garrick is heaps strong but he doesn't seem to be as strong at my level. I'll work on him though, and what are your thoughts on Shirley, I recently got her from Crucible?

I'm lvl94. As you wrote down here, no matter what you feel, just work on Garrick and he will never betray you.
As soon as you unlock epic arena, farm him.
Arena: Xanos (if ur having trouble at CoF), Ethera (will be really good once she awakened) and Namtar
Hall of Legend: Gizmo, Cara are must
Guild shop: all the way to Jasmine 6*
CoF: Dokras and Tholin

I personally don't like Shirley other than her nice hero card but there is a thread about her in game discussion section. GL mate!!

Shirley's ultimate can miss. It has a long animation time before it grabs the opposing hero. So much time that the spell will find the target dead, leaving your Shirley unhealed. Which means she dies and all that life steal really meant nothing.
Timing is everything. I'm to lazy, or she's to inconsistent. Either way, I don't like her
