My Chiron currently has 5 glory and is evo'd to Virgo. I have the shards (and need 136 more Mutagen) to take him to Libra. Today I rolled another Chiron but I've not decided if I'm going to glory or shard it. If I shard it then I just need mutagen to evo to Scorpio. If I glory it then he's a bit stronger and in theory just need shards, mutagen and to level up to get him to Capricorn.
What is making me stop and think is do I need to rush him to Scorpio? I recently took him off of my defensive line up to make room for AM. Why? Because in my experience Chiron defense was actually more of a help to me as an attacker than a hinderance. It holds up heroes giving them time to build up rage and gave AM Fury for her Tome. Any hp loss being made up when using AM's skill once the attack proper on the defending heroes began. The only negative being some of your mercs get killed before your heroes are ready.
Now, is this because:
I've reached a point where my heroes make Chirons Gemini redundant and Scorpio would be a different kettle of fish
Post reflective damage nerf, Chirons fortitude is not worth anything any more and levelling up to Scorpio won't be reason enough to consider putting him back in?
What are you guys finding with Chiron on defense when attacking?
