To begin, we should look at the abilities which are the least effective.
They are the following:
Why are the , Divine Shield, Lightning Blade and Rejuvenation abilities ineffective? Horn of War
These abilities all lack effectiveness simply because they only affect one stat!
This makes them clearly outmatched by and Hardiness, which both affect two stats. Ancestor’s Might
The only time you want to use , Divine Shield, Lightning Blade or Rejuvenation is when you are trying to stack one particular stat on a hero. Horn of War
For example, if you want your streamers to stack a lot of attack, you could use & Lightning Blade. Hardiness
However, it’s most likely that you will be better off by simply using other passive abilities which affect multiple stats.
Why is bad? Athene’s Favor
is not just bad; Athene’s Favor is terrible! You will never find a time that you want to use this ability. Athene’s Favor
Due to the fact that you will have so many heroes, you will always have an active aura which is better than the Athene Aura. As a result, you will never actually use this ability.
Do not use the Athene's Favor ability!
Why is bad? Mark of the Duelist
This ability is almost as bad as . You might get some use from Athene’s Favor, but the problem is, you simply do not need it! Mark of the Duelist
You do not gain much progression by dueling other plays, so improving your power in duels is useless!
The bulk of your progression will come from the Tower, Campaign and Boss Tower. Improving your combat potential in duels is pointless! Arena
These are likely the most effective combat passive abilities:
allows you to get more multipliers, which becomes a must have when facing very high stages in the Boss Tower, Whirling Blade Tower, and the Campaign. At a certain point, you literally cannot progress without multipliers. Arena
It is hard to say whether is more effective than a different stat-boosting ability, but we believe it will be a lot more effective in the long run. Whirling Blade
On the other hand, and Hardiness are excellent because they both provide stat bonuses in two different areas, therefore outclassing all of the other stat increasing passive abilities. Ancestor’s Might
These are likely the best abilities to use to improve your combat potential.
However, these other abilities might also work to replace : Whirling Blade
These abilities will improve the attack or power of your heroes, which might be more beneficial than improved multipliers.
Whichever abilities you end up going with, it’s important that you level up and upgrade your SMOrc pet to as high level and star as possible!
Without a good SMOrc pet with the proper abilities, you will not be able to progress far in late-game combat.
