Investing Guide

EX Weapon Investment

PriorityPVE InvestmentPVP Investment
Medium+5+5

Given the scarcity of Temporal Essence Temporal Essence and Twilight Essence Twilight Essence, careful consideration is crucial when upgrading EX weapons. This guide ranks characters by their dependency on EX weapon upgrades for optimal performance, outlining the most cost-effective stopping points to maximize return on investment.

A commonly recommended milestone is the +8 upgrade level.

This breakpoint is emphasized because the statistical enhancements provided by upgrading the EX weapon often surpass the benefits of the passive abilities. Additionally, advancing the EX weapon from +5 to +8 requires only 30 Temporal Essences. In contrast, progressing to the final two levels demands an extra 45 Temporal Essences. Therefore, halting upgrades at +8 offers a significant efficiency, ensuring you utilize your resources without excessive expenditure.

Overview

Pros

  • Versatile Abilities: Combines damage with crowd control.
  • Consistent Harassment: Can continually pressure enemies if circumstances are favorable.

Cons

  • Fragile in Melee: Often defeated quickly due to a lack of survival skills.
  • Weak Self-Healing: Healing is insufficient, often resulting in death before it takes effect.

sorenSoren is a new A-tier Rogue from the Mauler faction. Similar to valen 1Valen, his skillset is impressive, but he struggles to execute his abilities effectively without getting taken down quickly.

Ultimate Skill: Whirlwind Swing

sorenSoren’s signature move is the ‘Whirlwind Swing’, which boasts a global range. He moves to a chosen spot and swings his pole, damaging enemies and knocking them back by one tile. If these enemies collide with others, obstacles, or the edge of the battlefield, they take extra damage and are stunned. This works well with alsaAlsa’s ‘Stone Barrier’, which can set up collisions for stunning. However, this ultimate isn’t auto-friendly, often requiring manual control to target high-priority enemies like DPS or supports instead of the frontline.

Skill 1: Repel Sweep

The ‘Repel Sweep’ is useful for its utility, knocking back and stunning enemies that collide with objects or other units. sorenSoren repositions himself to execute the knockback, which can be risky. This movement can sometimes place him in vulnerable spots where his teammates can’t easily assist him.

Skill 2: Deflecting Swing

‘Deflecting Swing’ is a passive ability that only blocks a single hit, making it less effective due to its long cooldown. It triggers on any attack that deals more than 10% of sorenSoren’s HP, which is frequent for a Rogue. On the plus side, it resets the ‘Repel Sweep’, adding more utility by allowing additional stuns. His Hero Focus on Haste is beneficial for his abilities, ensuring quicker execution.

Mythic+ Skill: Dusk Rejuvenation

‘Dusk Rejuvenation’ at Mythic+ seems promising but falls short in practice. It heals sorenSoren for only 4% (or 5% at level 4) of his max HP per second, which is insignificant given his already low health pool. At Supreme+, his ‘Enhance Force’ increases the knockback distance of ‘Repel Sweep’ to two tiles when ‘Deflecting Swing’ is triggered, adding extra damage equal to about 50% of the mitigated damage.

Season of Strife Skill

The ‘Battle Rush’ skill is potentially good for sorenSoren, but his fragile nature makes it less effective. He would benefit more from a defensive skill that enhances his survivability rather than one that focuses on offense.

Conclusion

For players wanting to use sorenSoren, pairing him with alsaAlsa and a tank like AntandraAntandra with her Shield Formation or thoran 1Thoran with his Soul Pact can help improve his survivability. Support characters like rowan 1Rowan can accelerate his ultimate and provide emergency healing, while damianDamian or Hewynn 1Hewynn can heal him in situations where Smokey and MeerkySmokey & Meerky cannot reach.
