Should you get Phraesto?

Phraesto Pay-to-Win tank unit whose main purpose is to tank damage, especially against combos that have an insane amount of burst. The problem with Phraesto is that his damage is not that great. If you are a pay-to-win player, then feel free to get him, especially for PVP. If you are free to play player first, first max Reinier if you have it on a decent level, then you can start working on Phraesto. Probably until you get Reinier on Max, there will be a few more Celestial and Hypogen heroes released…
