Hero Comparison: Rose Knight vs. Elder Dwarf Reply:2| View:731

        Introduction
        Every successful team composition on LOA: Fire Raiders needs at least one defensive hero, also known as a tank to be placed in the front row. As you get further into the game, you will need at least two tanks to defend or stall your way to victory. This post will review differences of two well-known tanks: Rose Knight (RK) and Elder Dwarf (ED).

        General Information
        + RK: 1-star hero; Warrior.
        + ED: 2-star hero; Warrior.

        Obtaining & Promoting
        + RK\'s soulstones are easier to farm thanks to blitzing and drawing cards; plus, you obtain him right from the start.
        + With ED, you will have to join a guild (at level 22) and gather 500 guild tokens for every 5 ED soulstones. Therefore, promoting ED usually takes a longer time.

        Attacks and Abilities
        + ED\'s Indefectible allows him to create a shield that decreases damage for two rounds.
        + Force Majeure: damages enemies in the front row and restore a certain percentage of HP.
        + Thunder Axe: chance to damage and stun enemies in a row.
        + Full Body: passive increase of HP and physical defense.


        + RK has no shield but has The Royal Guardian to increase Parry passively.
        + Rosesoul Blade: damages enemies in a row, with a chance to stun them.
        + Rosemary: damages two random enemies.
        + Knight\'s Spirit: passively increase max HP.
       

        Rune Slots
        + RK includes Dodge, Physical Defense, and Resilience rune slots, making him strong against physical attacks but very weak against magic attackers like Pyrona.
            + Also has physical attack, unlike ED.
        + ED includes Parry, Magic Defense, and Physical Defense rune slots, making him a very well-rounded tank. He\'s only missing Resilience and Dodge, both of which RK has.
            + Also includes Agility, which is quite unusual for a tank. Having an attack rune slot like RK would make ED much better.

        Strategies
        + Use both RK and ED if you can. Place them in the front row, of course.
        + Because ED is an overall better tank than RK, place him on top of the front row.
        + Rose Knight should be placed in the bottom of the front row, thus only receiving damage from the enemies\' bottom row while ED receives damage from both the enemy\'s top and middle rows.
        + It is better for ED to defend against magic attackers like Pyrona than RK due to him having magic defense runes.

        Conclusion
        Both RK and ED are considered by many to be great tanks. Although ED may be a bit more effective than RK, he is more difficult to promote and obtain. Nonetheless, definitely have ED as part of your defensive team. He will save you from a lot of heartache. Take advantage of ED\'s magic defense runes to counter magic attackers. Definitely keep RK as part of your team if you are just starting to play the game. He is one of a beginner\'s most valuable early heroes.

Hero Comparison: Rose Knight vs. Elder Dwarf

Agility is actually needed on elder dwarf. He needs to put up his shield before anyone changes him to a sheep or stuns him so he can act his tank role out. I agree with you on RK falling off as compared to ED. But when awakening comes out(god knows when), he will be a viable option latr game. 20/30% reduction in dmg is awesome(i forgot what percentage) . Its like having another light envoy tank(except he is a tank). But many people still rather use other heroes than rose knight. I personally dont use a real tank now. Light envoy is my main tank and astral child as off tank. Super effective in control teams. Throw in an exorcist and people will have a hard time defeating you. Add a healer and people will cringe at your teams endurance.
