    How to choose best talismans for characters?

    Hi guys. I've never been good with choosing which talisman sets work best with certain characters. With all the new talisman sets revolving around certain buffs and abilities, it's really hard for me to match them effectively. There's a few that are a bit obvious (W Death Dog and Redemption, Osiris and Warlord, etc.) but a lot of the time, I simply don't know where to start.

    How do you guys decide on which talismans (Especially buff-based ones) work best for certain characters?
    Are the older, more stat-based talismans still a good option? (For example, Def. based talismans for Pharaoh based on his damage scaling?)

    Cheers \m/

    In fact, choosing the right talismans is complicated, new ones always come up and this usually requires a whole new strategy.
    Normally, I see what the talisman does and try to optimize its effects, for example, warlord, it combines well with characters of great damage, but also needs some healing involved, since it has the extra turn. So these talismans require at least a healing talisman or some healing character to use all the power of the warlord.

    Usually this is, first I look for the best character for the main effect of the talisman. (Another example, energy, works well with counter-strike because it optimizes the chances of gaining more energy).
    And if there is any side effect, I look for another character to complement, always trying to form a block, in which one character can benefit the other with some movement.
    But in fact, so far, what has worked best for me, is to constantly test (following the rotation of pvp), I try to change certain characters and talismans, to see what happens every week.

    Thanks man! So would it be right to say that you're essentially building up sets of teams based upon, perhaps as a starting point, a particular Eddie and his talismans? For example, I was going over some of my Eds and looked at Trooper. He benefits from Perfect Hits as it allows him to remove negative effects and can grant a heal shield to all allies. Therefore, I decided that Echo and Advantage talismans would help, as while his Present Basic grants Perfect Hit, you can use pretty much whatever Basic skill you wanted, have the chance of Perfect Hit and the benefits, while also having a potential second shot to utilise more of his Perfect Hit benefits. Then, I could pair him with characters/talismans that benefit from heal shields? Or perhaps those with Accuracy-increasing effects since he can then grant Counterstrike more often? What do you think?

    Exactly, Eddie is usually my starting point.

    Look, I like your idea of ​​Trooper Eddie, I think I'm going to test him some week. The combination of talismans looks good too.

    I think I would try to join another character with shadow / advantage too, and Osiris (currently I use with redemption / energy, however, a counter-strike works fine, I put the redemption, to remove effects) and another character to close the group.

    Osiris, will work fine turning everything he can into gold (perfect heal shield for everyone, careful with crave). For the shadow talisman, look for someone with high damage (I thought of Lady Azov, but, the alchemist has it all these days, though, it's good to have a look in stock, maybe someone who can carry these talismans and increase accuracy too, more welcome.
    I do not know if it's the best strategy, but, anyway, that's usually what I'm trying to do, I'm glad I got it right and for helping

    Cheers

    If you are looking for accuracy, you can try gunner desert marauder or assassin pyro soldier. Both has marksman passive, just dont go against a prisoner.

    Awesome, thank you! I currently run Osiris with Warlord / Advantage / Guardian, because of the extra turn when healing and the 100% Crit chance, but I'll give the Redemption/Warlord combo a try, since I'm sure I could match another character that could grant any form of Crit to turn gold. His passive truly does work wonders. Definitely gonna see what I can do with the Shadow/Advantage combo, as that could be very useful to have alongside him. Alchemist could be very handy for controlling the enemy's golden effects and doing a decent chunk of damage, as I found out in the Magus Madness challenge.

    I've also noticed a lot of characters tend to require certain effects before they can contribute their own, so I may start having to look back through the Character Effects guide to find the right characters for the job.

    It's certainly a great place to start and is especially helpful for people who have no idea where to start, so thank you again for all your help and tips! Cheers! \m/

    Cheers for the tips! For a team like that, would it be useful to have Prisoner alongside them too? Assuming that the Passive Disable would just cancel out?
