    If you are planning on farming, then build up your farm team immediately.
    I have seen other excellent players use a perfectly evolved and maxed quillbeast along with 3 other (non-evolved) low mana cards.
    The goal is to have a team that has at least 20000 hp and does 5000 points of damage or even better a low mana team that can do 10,000 points of damage in one turn (which can include the quillbeasts automatic attack if you ensure that half your party is Druid). This allows you to kill Father Mal efficiently. Personally, I don't think 3 star cards are worth perfectly evolving (unless they are part of a useful combo), but if you don't have better cards to evolve then start enhancing them before evolving them until you get better ones that will replace them. I do recommend full enhancing your cards before evolving them, especially if they are part of a valuable combo. The more rare and valuable a card is, the more important it is to enhance it well or perfectly.

    The best stamina / mana ratio depends on how much questing you will do (have stamina), how much Father Mal farming you plan to do (have mana) and to allow the future option to have powerful, high-cost cards in your deck (have mana).

      1- After you have your first main deck. Maybe after city 3
      2- 80-90/200+ seem reasonable. Dont want too low on stamina cuz you'll have to spend a lot of time farming for bosses in those last cities and there are even more updates coming
      4- Raid bougard never easy unless you get to level 70+. Should only fight back or side in the beginning with your best mana efficient team. ( in my experiece, side+ attack can drop you summon stone and streak, not sure about sneak and back)

      I'm not a top guy but I've been playing for a few months and my tip is: You can't become a top player without spending. It's sad but true. However if you're patient (which mean spending lots of time from months to year) you can become a high-mid or even low-top player. This can likely to happen if you start in a new server where everyone is about the same as you.

        I built my farm team when i made it to Southport. the reason is my guild has lots of active players and i only needed 3 mana pots for a raid which i could earn easily from the arena. Farm team is T3 Quillbeast lv 33, T2 Spy (max), T2 Druid intiate (max), T2 Druid scout (max) 5 mana per kill on Father Mal.
