Earth w Cleo-Khan (Counters healers)
This guide is part of my article series on earth builds. If this build is not to your likeing, have a look at the rest of my builds on the earth build page. I have multiple builds for any taste available, IB, PvE, arena/ToS builds and F2P/cheap builds.
This article is on earth with Genghis Khan. We are running Khan in this team, because he is one of only two Immortals to provide the valuable “wounds” debuff. Disabling 100% of enemies healing done. This means, that this build is made to fight other pure-earth teams (Zeno), and any other march that relies on healing to sustain itself. Performs well against wind which is otherwise the counter to lightning.
This build looses out to shadow like most other builds. It also looses against holy, like most others, but it is a strong build to use in a rally against an enemy holy-whale. This build is by far the best earth-march to fight holy. It is a great build to have in your repository and bring out when you need to counter a healing team – I personally rely on this to beat holy users in ToS and arena. Requires Khan maxed, thus you need to be atleast a low spender to get this build working right.
Tip: Remember we can unlock Khan in events like Spring Fiesta and max on gems.
This setup is pretty standard earth build. Only thing you need to worry about is making sure Khan gets to do his ability like clockwork. OBS! If you have low tech and Khan does not get off his ability Arrow Storm before holy dragon / water dragon / Zeno / Theo heals for the first time, then you MUST run adrenaline or a burst setup. Make sure your technology levels are sufficient by watching a couple arena battles.
You want to run this passive loadout:
Khan: Misleading/Coercion + Fighting Master + Assist
Cleopatra: Annihilation + Chase + Nova (fire or toxic)
Alex: Cleave + weakness + Death Breath
Charles: Oaken Guard + Malice + Life Link
