Glenda Hero Review:
Glenda in Offensive raids
270% damage at average charge speed is really average.
In other words, how good Glenda is really depends on the rest of her special skill (special attack increase + cleanse for all allies).
In terms of damage increase effects, the most effective way to increase damage is to reduce defence stats on your target (Costume Magni, Grimm, Athena etc), followed by attack increase. The reason why these effects have higher priority is because such buffs/debuffs also affect your tile damage, making the overall damage increase much higher.
In this case it is my opinion that such a buff is rather negligible.
In terms of cleanse effects, in the current meta (Dec 2020), additional cleanse effects is ALWAYS useful. Gravemaker, Jean-francois, Telluria, Vela are still the most common heroes in a defense team.
Overall, I would say that the most impactful effect of Glenda is it’s cleansing effect. Furthermore, if you take into consideration, the only other blue hero with a cleansing effect is Ariel (Atlantis) and Reuben (Hotm)
Glenda in Defense
Nothing special to write about Glenda in Defensive team formations. Many other options to play around with, but still usable
Glenda in tank, with strong flanks can be quite good. The majority of the defending team’s damage comes from special attack.
Wing – C
Flank – B+
Tank – B+
Glenda against Titans
The majority of damage vs titans comes from tile damage, not skills. Therefore the buff does not do much in terms of damage.
Glenda herself does not have high attacking stats either.
