There is a severe lack of information on TMNT Legends. The main thing I was looking for was which characters cause Focus Meter Down. Once a character’s Focus Meter fills up, it is that character’s turn.
That website is nice enough to reference that April and Movie Casey Jones have the ability to reset opposing character’s Focus Meter, or as the game calls it “Focus Meter Down.”
As I’m trying to get better in the game, a constant grind but I’m committed to it at this point, I was looking for a team that solely caused Focus Meter Down. So I turned to my pals at reddit for assistance.
A reddit user, Sh3Si was a huge help in compiling a list!
The ones I remember are April (basic move), Spiderbytez (basic move), Casey Jones Movie (basic move), Creep (basic move), Slash (5th move AOE – Area focus down) and Larp Raph (2nd move, 5th move AOE – Area focus down). All Classic Turtles do guaranteed focus down on basic move BUT only against their respective class advantage.
and fellow user, Rockho9 added these two –
Bebop classic also has a focus down for his basic, and OG Donatello has one for his 2nd move
I knew April and Creep, and that’s when I had the thought that if I could get three more, I had a pretty decent team there. I do like that these characters have the ability attached to their basic (first) move, so when I click the button when the game just does my fighting for me, it can happen automatically as the game focuses mostly on first moves. When I have a character I’m trying to level who has an Area of Effect (AOE), that’s when I control the game as it just speeds up the process. Having a team of more than one AoE character just makes me so happy. As soon as I unlock a character or a move with AOE, I level that move as high as I can for the most damage.
Casey Jones (Movie)
are not the worst team, I just don’t have Jones nor Bebop in the third tier yet so they are maxed out at level 30, whereas the others are at 45/44.
I do finally have a team of five that can get to level 46 – Baxter Stockman, Nick Raphael, Rahzar, Stockman Fly and Shredder, so once I commit to getting them to level 46 and higher, I can progress through the story mode, so I’m finally at that point. I’m just letting the first one naturally hit 46 as once that happens The Gauntlet is going to be even harder for me. It really isn’t a bad team, Stockman has two awesome AOE attacks, Nick Raphael is a beast now that he has his fourth tier move where he attacks back, Shredder has a decent AOE and he and Stockman Fly are healers so that’s to two healers in that party. Rahzar has a move that gives him critical attacks, if his health stays up, which is pretty often and for a couple rounds.
I have Baxter to the fifth tier so he has all of his moves available now and he is platinum now so that’s pretty great. Raphael will get within 15 days as will Rahzar, I’m not sure if they’ll get platinum-ed as that requires 10,000 T-Coins which is a lot of T-Coins (but I have those) it is the platinum shards I’m lacking but there isn’t any rush with that.
I’m almost got enough silver shards to take Snakeweed from Bronze to Silver, so that’ll be nice too.
Ludia keeps denying me Classic Shredder as a Tournament prize, it looked like they were heading in that direction with running all of the Classic Turtles, which finally gave me Classic Raphael (I’m still missing Michelangelo as it takes 70 DNA to unlock him), then they did Classic Bebop and Rocksteady. So I thought for sure either Krang or Shredder was next. Instead, this week, is Bunny Bebop, which makes sense as Easter is coming. I’m set to get him to the second tier, so I’m not really complaining about that. Bunny Rocksteady should be next week, which will get him moved up to the second tier as well, him or B.U.N.N.I.E.S. a variant of mousers, which will be nice as I haven’t unlocked that character either. Hopefully from there, we get Classic Shredder but I’m doubtful.
I’ve definitely have stopped playing the game that much. I barely play it in the morning, just making sure I get my one Tournament fight in, and at night, I blaze through the daily challenge to get the Nick Raphael DNA card and another Tournament fight as I really need to stay in the third tier of Samurai to get enough Bunny Bebop DNA, but staying in the third tier isn’t a problem for me as I have enough people to stay or get back into that tier.
