Hero Usage Guide
Oden's fantastic control abilities to be able to teleport enemies on top of each other, stun them, and reduce energy makes him a really strong asset in the early game for just about any team.
For example, he can be placed behind the team's carrier unit where he can continuously group up enemies, stun them, and maintain control over them to help propel his team towards victory.
In later game, Oden has more specific teams built around him. The following team is one example.
There are many approaches in deciding who the other heroes on the team can be, such as taking a tank approach, a support approach, or a damage dealing approach. This ultimately depends on the composition of the enemy team.
The following is one example of a portal team:
|Upper Backline||Tasi can temporarily banish enemies from the battlefield. Her ultimate skill also puts the enemy to sleep, so she can overall assist in the crowd control efforts. Pippa also synergizes with Tasi well due to her taking on the same effects as Tasi's ultimate.|
|Center Backline||Working in tandem with Oden to group enemies up, Pippa's "Astral Shift" skill teleports enemies around the battlefield for them to be stunned by Gorvo. Pippa also synergizes with Tasi well due to her taking on the same effects as Tasi's ultimate.|
|Upper Frontline||Rowan's ultimate increases the team's energy and attack, allowing the control effects to stack up faster as well as stunning the enemy team to buy more time.|
|Lower Frontline||Gorvo dons a supportive tanking role, stunning the enemies with his "Shell Shock" skill.|
Warden of the Arcane and Windbinder are both great options for Oden.
Warden of the Arcane provides haste for Oden.
Windbinder provides extra energy for Oden at the start of the battle, allowing him to open his first eye faster. If the player hasn't unlocked this artifact yet, Dura's Eye or Dura's Call are sufficient substitutes.
Oden is overall worth investing in if the player is building teams around him. Full investment is not required to get good use out of Oden, he can sit comfortable at 20 unlocks for his Signature Item and a Furniture investment of 3/9.
Going beyond this certainly won't hurt, but it is not vital and forgoing this route can instead free up resources to invest in some other heroes as well.
