I love this Eddie. The only downside (to me) is that you can't really pile on ONE stat, since Barrage scales with ATK, Roulette scales with HP, Bullet Trace scales with Special, and Acrid Smoke scales with MAG.

Yeah he is a really good all rounder. I sacrifice MAG and doesn't use Acrid Smoke.

Yellow Talismans have a better-than-average hp count, so SP build is really nice for him. I used all my Skill Shards on him, Acrid Smoke went to 4 =/ but oh well

>This skill Resets if you get a kill using it.

What does this mean?

Kulimar
07-23-2016, 06:38 PM
It means if the skill kills the enemy, the skill will automatically trigger again.

Trystangst

It means if the skill kills the enemy, the skill will automatically trigger again.

Which is funny when he ends up killing a dead guy like 3 times...

What talismans do you recommend for him?

Trystangst
07-27-2016, 09:16 PM
I'm torn. I've been stacking the Boost Talismans (Special +25%) and Rush Talismans (Special x DEF), but I'm trying out the Invisibility Talisman (Invisible on perfect attack). Anything that boosts HP, ATK, and SPECIAL. He uses MAG for his Future attack, but trying to boost 4 stats is very hard.

MAX stats:

HP: 8232
ATK: 651

MAGIC: 452

most gunner characters are like that; they should only be used for their special abilities, and for farming resources, which SE's roulette is perfect for. if you have strong tank like angel of strife as one of your allies, SE's stats won't matter much

~agrajag
07-29-2016, 05:39 PM
Is he??? so far his stats have seemed pretty lacklustre to me, and I only use him because his attacks(esp. roulette) are so good. but he's only lvl40 2*, so I shouldn't be complaining yet. ps,where did you get the 1* yellow evo shards for making him 3 * ? I have been searching for so long, but i can only find 2* evo shards.

Vaseodin
07-29-2016, 06:32 PM
He is by far the strongest Eddie in my opinion. I don't use him (not my style), but I have a couple of troopers and the level 80 4star soldiers can do missions even a level 100 5star samurai can't .

Dawkins
07-29-2016, 08:05 PM
I have to agree... Soldier Eddie is awesome... I've benched my 5* Samurai Eddie (defective) so am switching between the 4* Soldier Eddie & 4* Wickerman Eddie during battles, depending on opponents...

Trystangst
08-11-2016, 12:02 AM
He's really starting to come into his own.
vs. 5* level 85 Magus Hell Dice and Angel of Pain

Barrage (Level 4) - 2500-3000 Physical Damage
Bullet Trace (Level 2) - 3300-3700 Physical/1800-2000 Magical/5400 True Damage
War Torn (Level 2) - 9500 Physical/7400 Magical/14000 True Damage

Where do u guys get all the evolution shards to put soldier eddie to 4*!?! I've been farming underworld quests nonstop 3 days and only got 2 dropped... 5/6 right now. I just don't see how some people have max characters with these horrible drop rates

Kaijester
08-11-2016, 06:31 AM
It's really all about luck...I took two weeks to get the red evo shards for default Eddie but yellow shards all in 2-3 days.

I have a damage-build one. 2 x Guardian + 2 x Strength + 2 x Yellow Boost Will talisman works pretty good. If you have a strong team, i recommend you to build him with damage. Try to avoid green talismans if he can survive. Because after tunning update, his fury and fierce talismans get nerfed so he have less damage. Try to recover it as much as possible.

Esquatcho

Im running 4xBoost (will) and 2xstrength. He does great for auto-farming: Gets the fury every 2nd turn almost and with the fury, my big AoE Damage dealers really ramp up their destruction. Regular attack doesnt do so well, but the increase fury build (imo) is worthwhile. Also the boosts give him more hp, improving survivability.

URock
11-14-2016, 01:53 PM
but the increase fury build (imo) is worthwhile.

Fury damage was nerved by the devs with the last update. Since that nerv fury damage is a shame. Now I use Carriage Rider Eddie for farming.

Carriage Rider is great definitely (If you have him).

But with the 2xboost sets, he does a up to 5k damage in underworld madness and LoLX with his fury. But the added bonus is that he boosts everyone else (like my assassin golden son & AoF). But yes, if you have CR Eddie, his fury is also similar, but stronger... I just dont have him :/

I still use Soldier Eddie almost exclusively. However, since the nerf to his Fury War-Torn skill, I never use it. It is pointless because it does far less damage than his normal attack. So this is a question more for the devs & Sparton to help me understand, what is the purpose of a special Fury skill if it actually does less damage than the standard attack? I build up all this Fury only to do half damage to my opponent. Is there something else I’m missing, a skill effect of some sort, that offsets the lower damage output?

I'm hoping you can clarify that the damage output of War-Torn is as expected and if so, why it is less than the standard attack. Thanks

War Torn also buffs ATK, MAGIC, DEF and MR by 50 % each for the whole team. So, your other characters will do more damage, as will any subsequent attacks from Soldier Eddie, and you will suffer less damage from enemies (unless they all do true damage of course). So still a pretty powerful move.

konstifik, thanks for the info. The buff is quite useful. Just curious, where did you find the stats (50% to all) for this buff?

You can press and hold on a character and it shows a little splash screen with the buffs and negative effects on it, usually with numbers. I think this possibility disappeared with the most recent update but it should be back. Also, you can tell from just comparing damage with and without the buffs.

Is the team for campaign or PVP?

If for campaign, I love using Wickerman and maybe either Green General or Blue Allied soldier.

Both
I'm trying to go far on campaign, but want a good team for PVP also.
Green general it's awesome , and blue allied gives a great shield with reflect , but now it's on 3*.
what you think about the wicker man, should i use him or focus in another one ?
Wickerman i think it's great to,but i believe that warrior eddie is better them him(am i wrong?)

CanyptianFit
03-15-2017, 11:00 PM
So for PVE, warrior wicker man and green alliance general or blue allied soldier pair well with Soldier Eddie. I love Soldier Eddie and shared him near max. So I'm biased.

PVP is totally different and in my humble opinion there is no one solution. I use 8-10 different toons and 3-4 eddies.

You can look at my team to see who I've maxed.

Shifter
03-15-2017, 11:06 PM
Like CanyptianFit, I would use Wickerman and allied General with the SE. But work on the Blue Allied also. His reflect shield is a great way to get through Underworld, especially on madness.

If you pull Rocket Dog he is the prefect companion for SE.

I would concentrate on getting as many resources you can before PVP.

Edit I just re read your post, when you say wickerman do you mean the Eddie or the ally? I think we both thought the ally when posted.

My SE is 3* lvl 60. trying to drop the evo's for put him in 4*.
On the moment you think i should bet on Wicker man Eddie until get SE better?

i have both of them. wicker man and wicker man eddie. unfortunately i don't have rocket dog. do you think i should bet on Wickerman Eddie? i'm trying to drop evo's to up SE to 4*, but until them, what you think would be better?

Shifter
03-15-2017, 11:30 PM
I am sorry I think we are getting confused. When you said SE I immediately thought Samurai Eddie, not soldier eddie (silly me it's under soldier eddie forum thread). So I was giving advice on Samurai which drops as 5*.

Until you get the materials to take Soldier Eddie to 4 I would use the wicker man Eddie he is your strongest.


your best team right now would be Wickerman Eddie, allied General and Blue allied soldier. If you have the party cost available put the starting Eddie in the second spot since he is lvl 4. You will level him up also and can also use him in a pinch if your wickerman gets low. Also once you get your SE up to 4* use your wickerman ally with him and general.

Most of the other characters you have are going to gathering dust real soon, I wouldn't invest alot in them.

oh,sorry. i'm new on the forum, did not know that SE was samurai eddie.
I have the Soldier eddie 3* lvl 60 trying to upgrade him as soon as possible.
So, I will focus on the wickerman eddie until them and put first eddie with him to use if he's HP became low.
I have 2 burning talisman, should i use on wickerman eddie or you think only worth magic talisman?
Ty for the advices man :)

Shifter
03-15-2017, 11:45 PM
you wouldn't get much use out the burn talisman on the wickerman eddie. it would be better on the ally wickerman or the starting eddie.

Try to get blue/green on on wickerman. A pair of yellow talismans (magic) is a good substitute if you don't have sets of blue or green. Special more more fury each turn.

i have 3 yellow talisman's on 5*.
i recently buy it on store with ironite's to use on Soldier Eddie,but he's still on 3*. until them should i use it on wickerman?

I finally got a chance to look at your team. Here is what I suggest.

Wickerman ally

Don't use skilled anymore. You will need some later on for pvp but for PVE concentrate on fierce and safeguard. (I prefer safeguard because it raises magic resist which warriors usually have low amounts of)
You have two empty talisman slots that need to be filled.

Put another strength talismans to pair up with the one you have and then a green one in the green spot, doesn't matter to much right now which one.


Starting Eddie.

pair up those talismans to get the bonus.

On both wickerman and Eddie the guardian talismans will provide a bigger bonus than strength does.

Wickerman Eddie.

Don't use sorcery talismans. same as skilled. Has its use in pvp but not to much in pve.

pair up the second set of Holy talismans. Both give bonus that stacks.

Blue allied soldier.

Take off the Boost talisman and give to your soldier Eddie

Put a set of Holy talismans on him to pair up for bonus until you get 3 freeze talismans.

The Energy talisman on him doesn't help his damage since it is overwhelming swap it out with the Ward (once its leveled up to 30)


General is in good shape.

From what you have this it what I would use.

Eddie Wickerman/Starting Eddie
ally. General and Wickerman (Blue allied soldier for shield when needed)

Another Hint. Sale all those level 1 guys for gold. You will see them again and again and again and then some more.

Others may not agree with me but don't level up the following talismans, unless you really need one to complete a set.
Green (mystical)
Red (skilled)
Yellow (onslaught)
Blue (Sorcery)

Hey man, thank you so much for the tips.
When you saw my warriors it was a mess 'cause i was trying some builds by myself to see if work's or not.
I changed using what you say as base.
Could you take another look now? i will let the changes that i made until you see and say if it's ok or not.

Some points i would like to ask you.
i'm noob and (1)don't know what PVE means. its farming?
(2) you said "Put a set of Holy talismans on him to pair up for bonus until you get 3 freeze talismans.". why holy talismans? magic will make the buff better? ( again i'm noob , sorry )
(3) i put a yellow one on wickerman eddie because gives a lot of magic.

ty so much for your patience and forgive me for so many foolish questions.
Thanks for your time and knowledge.

It actually looks a lot better
Should be moving forward.

The one thing that I would suggest is that you work on talismans in sets. Freeze set will always be useful. Especially on multiple hitters.

Also since resources are so hard to get at your levels. I would work on getting multiple talis man's to 40 before taking anymore to 50. It takes so many runes to go from 40 to 50. And all at 40 is better than 1 at 50 and rest at 1/30.
Pve means play vs environment.
Holy talismans are magic also and bonus is 15% of base magic.
The yellow is good on him for now. Work on getting a pair.

I accepted your request so I'll keep an eye on your team. Go ahead and send private message if you have questions.

Soldier was nerved (why the hell?)...

Because everyone used the guy die to how OP he was, his ult was enough to destroy a phase of the beast, his other attacks dealt insane damage, and roulette was the most amazing heal ever. Had to be changed, you would know hes probably good when you see that your trooper list is literally 50 soldier eddies... those were the golden days...

OK I thought it was PvP , I missed the nerf notes. Explains a lot. I think a Soldier deserves more respect.

Ian

Even post-nerf, he is really versatile. He is not the very best for every situation but he is a formidable character used correctly. Sharded and with a good set of allies, Soldier will still autofarm GoD madness all day, every day. Can also be a very useful PvP character as well.
