While I respect the views of the creator, I'm not sure if they have endgame experience. The awakened heroes are ridiculously strong now. Elric is the best tank/control now, Namtar is a beast offtank/control. Sera is the best dps in game currently. Combine all 3 at 200 forge and watch Sera kill their entire party.
You can create a 5 man awakened team and win 90% of your matches =)
This is completely true! Also... kind of useless for players new to the game. Sure, character strength based upon awakening is great to evaluate and rejoice in when you get to that point, but the majority of players who need with their characters will be under level 90. I wrote this guide for them.
As the guide says: "Data is largely subjective — based upon common community opinion, hero use, and current game balance."
I could be more explicit about Awakened states (fun fact: this was created before Serafine and Ethera were awakened at all!), but you're right. I do not have endgame experience! Thusly, any opinions you want to share would be helpful.
