I’ve left auto on as soon as I got it, because all I could think to do was fire skills as fast as they charged and the AI is faster than me. The only exception is that I will switch it off near the end of Crusade rounds to hold a nearly filled skill for next time.
As far as I can tell, you can’t choose which of their skills will even fire next, the button is just “do what you’re excited about, go!” So banking a heal action for when more of the team is injured might just get you their attack action instead.
I know other people consider playing manually with skill to be a big advantage, which is why it’s locked on arena.
- What are people’s tips for playing on manual?
- Are there specific heroes who reward manual play more, and others that are just as effective on auto? I’ve seen someone suggest “just keep hammering X skill,” on Hex, so I’m sure I’m missing some moving parts.
Playing on auto I can beat Crusade about half the time. I’m sure I could improve that with basic manual skills. I’m sure I’m not the only one. Let’s educate each other!
