Myztero Hero Review:
Even though Myztero is 10 times harder to get than any other Legendary hero, Myztero is obviously not 10 times better than any other legendary hero.
A few things to note about his innate ability – Memorize status Ailments.
Myztero’s innate ability does not grant him immunity to status ailments. He will still be afflicted by them, but he “remembers” them. And then returns these ailments to all your enemy heroes.
Myztero’s innate ability therefore does not grant him, nor his allies immunity against status ailments, or status ailment cleanse.
Therefore, this makes Myztero a much more offensive hero, instead of a defensive hero. And because the Myztero’s power is very much dependent on what heroes are being featured in most defense teams – grading of Myztero will have to be dependent on the current meta game.
Despite his Very fast speed and the ability to inflict a number of status ailments on enemy heroes, at 107% damage, it is a very small amount of damage.
Myztero in Offensive raids
Below is a chart showing which heroes have the highest usage in 2020 (first quarter)
What you will notice is that there are quite a few debuffs that you will be able to work with when using Myztero in offensive raids.
The following status ailments are the probably the most common:
- Burn Damage over Time (DoT) [Gravemaker]
- Water DoT [Vela]
- Mana Generation reduction [Telluria]
- Blind [Drake Fong]
- Defense Reduction [Finley]
- Poison DoT [Jabberwock]
- Attack Reduction [Kingston]
You will notice that Myztero will almost always be able to inflict some kind of status ailments on your opponents.
There is a drawback though – you require your team to be hit with the status ailments. This also means that your attack strategy also straddles between going war of attrition vs sniping out key heroes.
As an example – the most common team composition that you will face in attack is probably Gravemaker, Telluria, Vela.
If using Myztero, you will most likely use 2 healers with cleanse, say Vivica, Rigard, Zimthika even. When you factor this in – you will notice one problem. The heal over time provided by Telluria counters your Status ailments casted by Vela and Gravemaker. So without dispels and snipers, you will take a much longer time to take down the opposing team.
Ultimately, it depends on your playstyle – if you are familiar with such lines of play. Myztero will be awesome for you.
Personally, I favor a more sniper-ish team. When faced with a team like above – my go to choices of heroes are
Vivica, Seshat, Marjana, Kingston and Boldtusk. My strategy would be to snipe Telluria as quickly as possible. Of course, i am limited in the choices of heroes I have, it might not be the best composition – but it suits my playstyle.
Myztero in Defense
Myztero is simply too unreliable in defense, and can be played around easily, regardless of his positiong.
Furthermore, without any status ailments “memorized” Myztero is pretty much a dud. You could ignore him as he does not deal sufficient damage to be a real threat.
Given the most common Gravemaker, Telluria, Vela (GTV) composition, I highly doubt that Myztero would be able to find a place in the wings, much less than flanks.
Even if you do not have the GTV combo, there are many other heroes that fulfill the Flank and wings position much better than Myztero does.
Myztero is simply a no-no as a tank.
Myztero against Titans
Specifically against yellow titans, Myztero would reflect a blind status ailment. Which can be useful, apart from that a slightly higher tile damage..
Myztero does not do much against titans and will not have a significant impact on your titan fight.
You will still need antidotes.
