I've been Rakan for a long time now, 300k power and dumping all resources I can into research. The thing is, without requesting my mates' troops my army feels VERY underwhelming vs daily quests. I feel it's not fair that I need to use 4 heroes for a chance to win without injured troops while my mates can send 2 rockets and be done with it and generally I feel like a burden since I pretty much need to borrow their units while mine aren't even that helpful to them.
If I use arbalesters, they end up merging into the frontline more often than not and get wrecked, especially if it's a lich quest. Using ninjas instead fixes that as they don't get as close but they do take longer to deal with enemies. Frontline... if monks or samurais, some become injured pretty much all the time. Problem is if I do 10 quests a day that ends up being quite a lot of troops injured (and again, it's mostly annoying because other races do that with 0 injured troops). I've tried turtles as frontline which so far seems to be the best option in quests but my arbalesters don't kill enemy tanks+snipers fast enough to save the turtle(s) from critical shots. Ninjas' shadow strike helps a ton except when sniper groups are far from each other.
1 turtle and 2 borrowed rockets can wreck havoc and clear nearly every quest, no injured troops. 2 turtles+22 arbalesters+2 ninjas. Or monks, or samurais or whatever I have, can't.
I know Rakan is a support race and my troops are stronger when loaned to someone else but are they really so bad I can't clear daily quests myself? lol
