Relatively recently I wrote the initial guide for Chronicles of Chaos, played Chronicles a bit and now, based on my own experience, I can tell you about cool packs or hero builds in 2023. Interestingly, the meta of the game, i.e. the best heroes in Chronicles don't change much. But new heroes are being added that don't really bring imbalance. And when picking a build or choosing the best pack to play Chronicles of Chaos, you should always be aware that any, I emphasize, any pack can be broken in Arena or VG. For every hero or series of heroes, there will always be a counter-hero or counter-pack. So, what heroes should we be rocking to build imba packs in 2023? And two more words. The suggested packs are a guideline for newbies. If you have anything to say, correct or suggest your own variant of packs, please feel free to comment.
The best pack to start the game in 2023
I didn't plan this paragraph or the piece of article in general, but yesterday I was discussing the game with friends and came up with the following. If we were starting the game now, with 0, we would each start with packs, based on: Dante, Heidi or Yasmin. But this strategy would not bring success, only some kind of fun or new game experience. The right start would be to start with compulsory with an eye on Asgard. That is, start right with those characters who are meta in Asgard. Why? Very simple. Further you pass in Asgard - more rewards, grow faster. What's the best Asgard pack right now? This one. Based on this, the initial pack is made up of Ju and Isaac, they do most of the work. Next we need a tank. It's optional, Aurora or Astaroth. And then we just get the heroes we need, so we end up with a pack like this for Arena battles and campaign playthroughs: Nebula or other heroes can be connected there situationally. Of course, such a pack is not a dogma. But it gives an advantage over others:
- Asgard will go well.
- All the characters are methinks or close to it
- You'll need them for sure:
- another tank,
- the other characters situationally and to the best of their ability.
- They all have a different color of appearance medals: Ju and Tank are red, Martha and Celeste are purple, and Isaac and Seba are blue.
Obviously, to get such a pack at an early stage of the game - you need a donation. But it will justify itself if you are determined to play long and effectively.
Packs to start the game
Here I will talk about hero packs that you can start with, especially if you play without, or with minimal donation. These packs are only for the beginning and for the average game, unless more is specified. With these heroes and builds you can safely move up to level 100 and a little higher, but constantly keep in mind that you need stronger meth heroes Chronicles of Chaos. What else is important to realize when picking a pack to play. The real important thing, but not many places or people talk about it, is the compatibility of appearance stones and now Asgard pumping. What I mean by that? On the guises - it is very important that you pump heroes with different stones of guises. That is, that you have heroes for strength, dexterity, and magic in your pack. For example, why is the stag pack very expensive to build? Because almost all the heroes in the pack - mages, respectively, you need a lot of appearance stones for magic, and on whom to share dexterity and strength stones? Toto. Same story with Asgard. Stones for pumping Ascension on Asgard fall randomly, so it is important to pump 3 different characters on 3 different parameters: strength, dexterity and magic. For example, it could be Astaroth (strength), Kira (dexterity) and Martha (mage).
Pack without a tank based on Maya
A pack like that really grated on my nerves in the Arena, and I couldn't do anything against it. I didn't understand how she was killing me, but a well-pumped Maya works wonders in the beginning and middle of the game. It works due to the fact that Maya starts gaining ult early, starts her flower, and then it's pretty hard to kill her because of the large number of hitters in the pack, as well as control in the form of Jorgen and Arachne. This pack is easy to assemble, but the same Celeste and Martha will have to be bought or knocked out in the heroic chest, but the rest is simply collected: Maya from the Arena store, Jorgen from the Outlands, and Arachne is collected into a full star at the very beginning. Contrast this pack through Penguin's pet, which reduces hit, Sebastien, which levels all of Jorgen's abilities, and of course damage. This pack is not playable in the late game.
Played through Kira. Kira is collected through daily campaign farming, and in about 2.5-3 months it will be possible to close it to an absolute star. Tank - we prefer Astaroth, because sometimes due to the subtlety of Kira's health, his Resurrection skill is very important, which in turn is countered by Celeste. Obligatory in the pack Nebula with his "ball", which increases the damage of Kira quite significantly, as well as Sebastian, aka Boyarsky, which increases the chance of crit and removes negative effects. Babka, aka Marta, heals. It is important to pump Kira the strongest in the pack. In general, the order of pumping should be as follows: Kira, Astaroth, Nebula and Sebastian at about the same level, and Martha last. The emphasis on Kira, and very noticeable. The tank should not die first. If it does, pump it until it's more stable. The others will be far behind, but we'll pump them up too. Pet - it's always variable. You need more damage - Fenris, you need to "spread" the damage - Axel, you need to "forbid" the treatment of the opposing team - Penguin. This pack can be easily turned into a kryto-kira.
Swap out the babka for a Jet. We get a pack that will hit with krites, it hurts a lot. This pack can be countered with Helios.
Kira vs. Karh
In the classic variant, with the same pumping, Kira is likely to be taken out in front of the legs. But if we put Andvari instead of Astroth, the pack with Kira plays with new colors. Karkhas, even higher level, with the proper pumping, are taken out at once.
Kira vs. Yasmin.
One of Kira's worst enemies. Yasmin will also always be defeated one-on-one. But you can also find an antidote against her - Helios. So Kira is a pretty good meta choice in the current 2023 meta. The final option, where you could control Karkh and Yasmin, looks like this:
The classic Carhopak looks very similar to the Kira-pak, see for yourself: The basic idea is to control the enemy team. Where Jorgen drains energy, Astaroth burns it, Faceless duplicates (hopefully) the right skills + throws the tank back, and Karch destroys it all with his tentacles. There's the only problem with this build - Karh himself. This is a donated character for the beginning of the game. Later, he can be bought with scrolls, but it is unreasonably expensive. Therefore, if you decide to play Karkh, I recommend you to donate at the beginning of the game on it, for any number of stars, the rest will be raised through scrolls or through the opening of chests. Of course, to play such a pack constantly - murder, because the same Andvari controls Karkh, and Sebastian Jorgen, so you always need to pump up other useful characters, for example, the same Yasmin, against Kira, Sebastian - in opposition to the other.
A pack that is loved for its simplicity. There are no special requirements for him, just pump Yasmin, she will kill everyone. But it's just as easy to kill him with a hero like Helios. Clearly, that is commensurate in level and pumping. Otherwise, it is an imba-hero, which is pleasant to play and will be relevant in the beginning and in the middle of the game. And a little weaker in the late game, due to the fact that a good half of the server will already have time to pump Helios.
Olene puck or the couple Lars and Krista
One of the interesting builds. And they can be collected through a campaign as well. These campaigns are opened only in chapters 11, 12 and 13 and you need someone to get there. However, it can be done. Lars and Krista always work in tandem when both heroes cast Water Marks, after which Lars retracts and mega damage and stan to the enemy occurs. Nebula can change to Jorgen, Sebastien, Isaac or even Faceless depending on the situation. Pumping is best favored with Lars as a damage-dealing character. Slightly less Krista and further tank, it could well be Astaroth instead of Aurora, and the rest of the support for this pack.
There is also a good defensive combination like this. Instead of Jorgen, the support changes differently depending on the situation.
Puck is on the Orion-Helios nexus.
Why is this a good start to get the game started?
Orion - A mage in the game with a huge amount of damage. Thanks to the 1st skill is able to launch 6 powerful missiles every couple of seconds - mowing down enemies. Thanks to the 4th, passive skill, is able to quickly gain additional energy - ult and turn on the 1st artifact. And the 1st artifact he has is an artifact to break through the defense against magic - respectively, thus increasing the attack of all the mages in his pack.
And primarily Helios.Helios - is also a very powerful mage - able to deal a lot of damage and thanks to 2 health and 1 armor artifact - is able to hard cover the back line of the pack and withstand the transfer of Jorgen and Ismil's blows, shows excellent survivability against physical packs. Thanks to the 4th and 2nd skill for 10 seconds calls an invulnerable sphere capable of fighting back every supostat in the pack of the enemy, who makes critical strikes on allies Gilios - Krito-Kira, Yasmin, Dante, Ismail.
Minus Helios - he does not have his own mag defense penetration - so he needs to pair an ally with an art to increase mag defense penetration (Orion, Arachne, Faceless)
Cheap Orion souls - collected from the store, naturally in-game
Helios is more expensive to build, options for getting soulstones: buy, get for monthly chests, get from campaign at later stages starting at 10, get from heroic chest.
1 Tank: Aurora or Astaroth
Astaroth / Aurora, Celeste, Nebula, Orion, Helios - Nebula gives mega mag attack boosts to both Orion and Celeste, Celeste as a healer and as a mage dmmager with 1st art to boost mag attack.
Astaroth / Aurora, Jorgen, Orion, Faceless One, Helios
Astaroth / Aurora Arachne, Celeste, Orion, Helios
Astaroth/Aurora, Arachne, Orion, Dorian, Helios-a very viable combination under Dorian's aura.
The variability of the pack and what other heroes are needed
- Astaroth is a versatile tank with resurrection.
- Celeste - as a healer and as a mage damager with 1 art to strengthen mag attack - due to constant use of 1 skill, + removes negative effects on allies with 3 skills.
- Faceless - 1 artifact to pierce mag defense + Orion's copying + control and knocking down the enemy pack into one pile - on which Arachne can bang and Orion's charges can fly.
- Arachne - 1 artifact to pierce mag defenses + heroes after Orion volleys + mass control
- Jorgen - both Orion and Helic work on damage mass - as a consequence they can charge the enemy, disabling the energy is often very useful.
- Dorian is an excellent healer for this bundle - he is able to maintain the vitality and consequently the combat power of the bundle with his 4th skill
- Aurora is the best tank for this team - provides 1st line defense from mag attacks thanks to 4 skills and from physical attacks thanks to a large number of dodges + large mag damage from the Aurora itself - which is enhanced by artifacts for mag attacks of allies.
Sebastian, Andvari can be used situationally.
Pros and cons of a pack with Orion and Helios
Good against physical packs, due to the presence of Helios in the pack is excellent against teams with critical damage (Yasmin - Ismail packs, packs with the participation of Sebastian, Jet).
At the expense of having Orin - parses Corvus' altar well, removes Sebastian's "lard".
It's hard to get Dorian, and Helios.
Who's countering her
Satori4th skill counter - every time Orion/Gelic gets bonus energy, Satori casts additional tags.
Liencontrite Orion4th passive skill - Helic and Orion due to mass pack damage - gain enchantment for 4 seconds from Lien.
Isaac. No comment)
Packs with a Rufus tank - requires Morrigan in the lineup and manual combat control.
Cornelius can kill Orion's monolith - unless Helic has more pumped up intelligence.
Heidi pack for pure damage
Quite a popular pack of old-timers of the game, who, as they say, have learned life and Chronicles 🙂 The basis of the pack is Heidi, who hits with pure damage. Let me remind you that there is no way to avoid net damage, it just slams into the enemy and bites off as much as it should. Heidi has one problem - low health, but here, at the expense of Celeste and Martha try to hit the monkey. Another problem is weak damage as a cor hero. For this we need Nebula, she will increase Heidi's damage by one and a half or even more times.
Lien-based control pack
What's notable about this build? First of all, as you can see, she has 2 healers at once, which means that she will stand very, very well in defense. Plus, Celeste does a pretty good amount of damage. Lien is a pretty good character, rather unappreciated, simply because she's either a damager or a support. But still, a pumped up Lien can do wonders. Nebula here boosts Celeste and Lien's attack. Countered by Sebastien.
Of course I haven't reviewed all the best packs in Chronicles of Chaos in 2023. Of course I don't know and understand everything about the game, so if you want to share your knowledge or expertise - write your opinion in the comments or write to me personally (there are details in Contacts) and we can publish you on this site. And among the novelties of 2023 with beautiful graphics and addictive plot, I advise the game Pilot overview which can also be found on our website.
