Yes those would be the warriors released most recently. All but Jarl. Which I’m not impressed by so far. I should have included wydrian, destar and even Balahm.
The ones you named are older attempts at making warriors relevant, and they actually do make progress.
Nollaig, Cav, and Leos are extremely
Capable warriors. At the time they were released they did excellent.
No way I’d call them tissue papery. Are you sure you have them with an appropriate rider, gear and runes?
Cav is extremely capable and I should have included it on my list. I’ve seen it take huge bases defended. You can’t be one of those one button pilots if you want to do well he needs constantly attention.
Nollaig’s freeze is amazingly powerful, it didn’t always kill towers but it could survive a ton. It’s also fun to fly and relatively easy to use. And zero rage regenerate is crazy useful
Leos was possibly the first attempt in the recent shift towards making warriors good. I’d consider it superior to gargula… the first warrior with dark flak resist I think.
Gladicus was a flop. But we have flops in hunters too. Hardly proof of warriors being tissue paper.
Kirin is actually super powerful at the low end but weak at the high end. (Or was pre spell scaling) It’s also a festive dragon, so I lit over delivered for what a festive dragon usually is. Axi was the exception to the rule for festive dragons.
I don’t know much about Tez, but a lot like him. You may be right, maybe it’s another flop, but I don’t think this list shows recent warriors as being tissue paper
I’ll hand you that morthill and Girasol were trash
Balahm was not bad, but not as good as Jotun.
Destar was great (athouh I think it was a bad direction)
Wydrian was also great.
Archimera and Herdron were okay but not exciting.
Stormheim was actually a fantastic warrior.
Pyro and kyrule were also decent.
All of these dragons until destar pretty much had zero reach above their tier. Spell scaling may have fixed some of them.
Again, Wydrian was a great warrior. It didn’t extend beyond harbinger legendary towers though.
Maybe you think that’s what they are missing? Almost all warriors since destar have had marked improvement. Elemental resist has been a big reason.
I guess I’d have to ask what makes you think that they are “tissue paper”. I fly a bunch of these on alts and can reach decently high with many. They won’t perfork according to your needs I’d you don’t have them geared properly.
I would like to see all classes be relevant with a purpose. I’d like to see some bases where one class is best on it, or at least some tower configs where it is.
I think Cav is an excellent warrior. It’s not typical in that you can’t just hold your finger down. You gotta really keep all the spells in motion, and shift gears as needed. The damage amp stacks and actually works quite well. I’m not sure it’s spell is scaling how it should post spell scaling changes but again I’ve seen my teammates take down some really big bases defended with him.
I think a lot of them lost relevance over time.
Use Amorak as an example. Released when ballista were the most feared tower. At a time before the dark flak when you used to equip cure poison and use itnstrategically, you repeated cure poison. It was a game changer. Then (current type) divines came out, dark flak came out, ballistas became ignorable, and everything changed.
Leos is still a good dragon but you won’t get harbinger towers with it unless you over-compensate with gear. The only reason it’s not considderd good anymore is because we have better now.
