    Reaper

    Ghost/Snipers for massive damage,Titans/Enforcers to defend and mitigate incoming attacks, Terminator/Heavy to destroy buildings and Reapers/assassin to do what?!?

    As a reaper, I feel like I'm an useless class not needed by empires. What do reapers do exactly? I'm level 392 now and have been a reaper throughout the whole game but now I feel like I need a change. I feel like I don't really do anything useful anymore as a reaper, at first I thought having my harvest lvl 3 would be valuable to the empire but it seems that it's not needed as ghosts can deal 900+ damage, eliminating the need for my decap skills. While there are powerful skills like blood lust that gives consistent damage, there's also useless stuff like plague which seems like total garbage. In addition, ghost seems like the class to be, my empire mate dealt 9000 damage from power shot critical with overkill while I deal a measly 400 damage per hit . Should I change my class to ghost?

    Not only that, I have no idea how to play the reaper, what should my lieutenant load out be? I know that for ghosts you look for critical boosting lieutenants like overkill or dragon lord does this apply to reapers? What lieutenant should I be looking for? Any fellow reapers who can give me advice as to how to play the reaper?

    Loadout :
    Assassin: 4* scorpion ( only Lt relevant to the reaper that I know of)
    Enforcer: 1* Irina
    Right Hand: 1* Col. Zhukov
    Captain: 1* Strafe
    Underboss: 1* Diablo

    Other lieutenants:
    EPIC
    Morningstar
    Enzo
    Raven

    RARE
    Sophia
    Kate
    3* Scarlet
    Fox
    Tagg
    Caine

    UNCOMMON
    Victoria vanderbilt
    3* Joaquin el sicario
    4* Scorpion
    3* Miss conduct
    Charon
    Nautica
    2* Pain
    Blink

    Should I even list commons? What Lt is useful for PvP, Jobs and EvE? Which ones should I keep and upgrade? What Lts should I be looking out for? (As a reaper)

    Should I change class?

    P.S I may be level 392 but I still have no idea how to play the game lol, I don't change my loadout for jobs,eve and PvP I always kept to this loadout for some reason and recently found out that I should probably change my loadout instead of just pumping all the stats into attack hoping that I'll somehow get powerful this way.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Re: Reaper

    Plague is one of the most valuable skills in the game. It helps take down very high health targets much easier. You will quickly notice when attacking a plagued toon that you hit them for significantly more damage every hit.

    As for load outs I use:
    just remember other people will use different load depending on what they need

    #1 attacking/boss killing load out

    #2 energy use load out
    scarlett, penelope, fixer, whatever right hand you are currently leveling, or envy/lady vice to boost 1 of the other lts. Yugo perhaps. Mastermind, Baron. I'm sure there are more you could use.

    #3 Casino event load out. Mostly used with brainiac and isis for making stuff much quicker. Obviously this isn't a needed load out and can be made during the event.

    #4 Health load out

    Consigliere, yugo, envy/lady vice, any other lts that you can equip the most health insignias on. and any other +health lts you feel like using. Gunslinger for start of war.

    #5 Regen load out for Energy/Stamina

    Joaquin el sicario, gunner, charon, envy/lady vice, penelope, ariel for income perhaps, gunslinger for start of war.

    Frank can be added to any energy/stamina/token line up.

    These are just a couple examples. Other people may use full energy load outs or stamina load outs when they level to get a maximum amount.
    There are defensive load outs.
    There are demo load outs.

    Good luck I hope this has helped you some.

    Re: Reaper

    Interesting. So what Lts would you recommend for the attacking loadouts as a reaper? When would you use the health and attacking loadouts? Which loadouts to use for EvE?

    Only guy I would change from your loadout. You want damage or attack or decap for Reaper. You don't really have many LTs to have many loadouts. Just maybe swap in Scarlet and Penelope for jobs. Pain and Blink (critical chance) for boss.

    Re: Reaper

    It really depends on what you aim..

    For example, free tokens: frank, layla, gunslinger combined with ambush will generate good free tokens per average wars with consideration that you win all your hit to maiximize layla.

    Debuff/debuff damage: phantom, chastity and other debuff lt, Plague was my fav skills ever - with disable 3 ayou can plow all the gigantic healthy titan or enf - combined with any other debuff skills applied on target, would really boost your damage if you got chastity.

    Power Lt: illusionist, mayday, and any other power affecting Lt. To helps you win against your opponents. (Hardcore user of illusionist lol)

    Damage Lt: reaper, hyena, gman and other. - well yeah for boosting damage.

    IMO, getting critical based Lt - Overkill, Vanguish, etc on reaper was kinda dissapointing for me (personal experience) getting critical hits will be somewhat inconsistent to get Overkill to her full potential.. I know there are many other reapers that used her but i just don't seem to share same experience.

    There were probably many other reaper builds that i don't know.. From what i gather being reaper are like being situational hitter (if you can win most of your attacks and have 3000 attack with bloodlust 3 - dunno the real attack cap though) you can get significant bonus to your damage. Combined with precise blade and ambush you can deal good damage with chance of getting 2 or more free tokens (1 extra if layla kicks in, not counting frank lol), and many other benefits that i probably missed to mention from another play style..

    Just don't compare your total damage output with Ghost, especially if the ghost was way more stronger than you.. You'll just gonna be depressed lol. Reaper arsenal was pretty much fun - you just need more time and patience though. Have fun, thats the only way to play this game.

    Edit:
    The key was to decide what skills you want to utilize most and starts building Lt around it first to minimize your cost (whether fp, crate or $)

    Re: Reaper

    ghost can do 900 + damage on one hit but what if ur facing a strong titan defender and he has 900 hp left and that ghost hits once and his shot is negated ? dont u think that in this case would have been better if a reaper decapitated the target?. what if he hits and this time he doesnt critical and hits just for 250 damage the target will have 650 damage left and the ghost will need to hit again while reaper could just decap him with one token.
    but well i believe ur playing on an empire with no strategy and where ur ghosts care more about the personal scores and not much about the win.

    about reaper class
    plague is used on defenders and high health builds ,also on actives so they lose health when they spend their tokens.
    bloodlust preciseblade shadowstrike and ambush will help u do high amount of damage on sleeping targets with a 30% chance to not spend ur tokens on hits .
    lifesteal wont let u die .
    reaper can use all kinds of attacking lts .
    my loadout is layla,illusionist,the dragon lord ,vigilante , violence and i switch time to time patch and poppy for a 4 token hit and

    So prior to a war starting you would put your health load out on. Once the war starts you enter the EvE and you will have a much larger health pool so you don't die as quickly. Simply change from your health load out to your attacking or decap load out and you are good to go.

    The load out can not be equipped to gain health once the war has started and needs to be in place before the initial start happens or it won't register.

    The other posts have answered suggested lt's to use. I believe there is a newer lt who increases execution success chance you may look into getting that lt.

    Re: Reaper

    Alright, thanks for the useful insight guys! I've decided not to change class after all because I realised that I would have to grind so much in order to get the CCs to be a decent ghost.

    Just remember with whatever you choose, this whole game is about patience and the constant grind. Embrace the grind!
