Is it better to use a smaller formation?

#1

Glad to be back on a 5PG game. I was on the player council for Legacy of Heroes, but that was ages ago.

I’m curious, from a strategy perspective. I just got my third hero, and switched formations. However, Arabella’s attacks still do way more damage than either of my other heroes, and with 3 in the formation her attacks come up less often. It seems like I’m more effective if I use a smaller formation so she can act more often. Is this the intent of the design, or just an issue balancing the power level of characters?

I realize we’re in Beta, so I’m hoping something changes to make me want to use larger formations.

For the record, I’m playing on Kartridge.

This will vary depending on which allies you are using. but you will reach a point where the smaller formations just wont be able to survive and you will need the additional body and health they bring.

That being said most likely Bajeel was your 3rd, which is a tanky character. We chose this originally to help you survive that content, but it does slow the game down a bit. In an upcoming patch we will swap her out for someone with more attack based abilities which should make that feel better.
