For Honor – Raider
Raider, which is a Vanguard Type Hero is one of the easiest characters of the game to play with. This Raider may turn into a character that can be useful for all types of playing styles. Therefore he is an ideal character to begin with. If you opt to advance into the game with this character, you will have to prioritize two stats of Raider; Stamina and Attack. When you are unlocking the traits, the items that you will use should highlight those stats. If you improve your character with those stats, you may have the most effective Raider character. But against which characters is your Hero superior to? Indeed the answer to this question may vary but basically Peacekeeper and Orochi may be incredibly weak against Raider. However, keep an eye on Warlord, Warden and Nobushi because those three characters may also be very powerful against you as well.
There are pros and cons of playing with Raider. Let’s start from the pros. Raider is an attack based character. Especially because of the throw attacks of this character, you can stun your opponents or drive them to the traps easily. You have to keep two things in your mind while using this character; the light attacks of Raider is really fast and throw feature is incredibly effective. But there are also downsides about this character too. Its light attacks are very short ranged and its heavy attack is considerably slow. Don’t forget those points before using this character.
For Honor – Warlord
The, which is a Heavy Type character is one of the rather easy characters of the roster to play with. On the other hand, Warlord appeals to a sole play style. That is why it is not a very ideal character to start the game with. . If you opt to advance into the game with Warlord, you will have to prioritize three stats of this character; Defense, Stamina and Revenge. The items to unlock the boxes should prioritize those stats. You will have the most effective Warlord if you improve your character based on those three stats. But against whom your character is superior to? Although the answer to this question may vary, Peacekeeper, Oroch and Nobushi may be incredibly powerless against Warlord. However, you need to keep an eye for Kensei and Warder as they can be too powerful fr you as well.
Playing with Warlord has some ups and downs. Let’s begin with the up sides; Warlord is a purely defensive character, probably has the best defense in the game. Especially the attack range of Warlord may provide some comfort to you during the game. You need to remember two things when you using this character; your character is a tank and you need to play defense. In addition, don’t be afraid, you have colossal health. However, keep in mind that this character also has some downsides as its stamina is depleted rapidly, which renders your character guardless. Remember those before engaging in with this character.
For Honor – Berserker
Berserker is an Assassin type character and it is not very hard to play with in the game. On the other hand, Berserker is good for only one play style. That is why it is not a very ideal character to start the game with. If you opt to advance into the game with berserker, you will have to prioritize three stats of this character; Movement Speed Attack and / or Stamina. The items to unlock the boxes should prioritize those stats. You will have the most effective Berserker if you improve your character based on those three stats. But against whom your character is superior to? The answer may vary from time to time but basically Peacekeeper and Orochi are fundamentally inferior to Berserker. Warlord, Warden and Kensei on the other hand, need constant attention as they are highly dominant over Berserker.
Berserker has its own pros and cons in the game. Let’s start from the upsides shall we? Berserker is a complete aggressor, if you find a chance, you can inflict heavy damage to your opponent long before he notices and so you can take him down. Especially the Stamina points of this character will strengthen your hand in the game. You may also need to work on the combo moves of Berserker as they are highly fluid and your online opponent may not be a player with agile reflexes to counter. Another reason to learn combos is that your character deals a lot of damage as we pointed out. However, your character is not also short in deficiencies. First of all, its attack range is very short. Its heavy attacks are slow and your health points are not that much either. Remember those before engaging in with this character.
For Honor – Valkyrie
Valkyrie is a hybrid character and is a harder character to play the game with. However, Valkyrie does not suit to a single play style and if you have a lot of skill, you can utilize this character with various styles. That is why it is not an ideal character to begin with. If you want to advance into the game with Valkyrie, you will have to prioritize two stats of this character; Attack and Defense. The items to unlock the boxes should prioritize those stats. You will have the most effective Valkyrie if you improve your character based on those three stats. But against whom your character is superior to? The answer may vary but Peacekeeper and Orochi have fundamental weakness against Valkyrie. Warden and Kensei on the other hand are very superior against Valkyrie so keep a close eye on them.
