1st off, ive never recommended anyone use a ballista in my life, no point, i simply say they have much more potential than anyone else gives them credit for.
2nd, i didnt assume you were worried about obsidians attacking you but if u dont mind answering what tier lvl 45 towers were made for then you might see why i mentioned.
3rd, ur comparing an original tower to a flak and that dont make sense no matter how u wanna slice it…flaks require embers so unless u got em growin on trees ur gonna have to balance the towers u upgrade. -if you really want my honest comparison then id say 1 javelin and 1 dart from my lvl 45 ballista is greater than or equal to 1 stun shot from my lvl 40 dark flak…if ur gonna compare them like that though you are basically judging art without sight.
4th, u got me there about proof against end gamers but thing is you wouldnt need anything higher than garnet or even saphire to take ur base and im only gonna add that an equal or lesser tier backup for 5 flames is required to make sure we can all be home in time for dinner.
Anyway i didnt mean to create a hostile discussion but im sorry i cant help myself sometimes when i see so many ignorant comments on ballistas
