Scouting for a new scout .

Just found out these two scouts . One was wandering around the camp and the other one nearly burned to death near a church . So which one should I legendarize or wait for a better one or scrap one ? I don't know , you guys are the creative one . So , either the irresponsible mother or Zoey from L4D . You decide .

    Give Annie a good home!

    Stabmother looks like she'd make good walker bait in the Distance, however one could call that cruel. Instead, I would likely provide her a pack of rations, some water, and a kit so she could make her way on down the road to that safe place we know as Terminus. Hand her one of those maps we all collected, ask her if she has any other needs and bid her a long and tasty life.

    Oh, have her say the code phrase as the gates of Terminus. 'I make good stew'.

    IMO they both have potential.
    Ruthless is Awesome but Luck is also important.

    If you get Luck on Annie she'd be awesome & Stabmother would be great if she gets Ruthless.

    You need ruthless for stabmother to compare to Annie. And then you’d have to fit her with damage badges to make up for not having strong.

    I would go with Annie for sure and hope for either dodge or lucky

    I'm also looking for a new scout, with ruthless, to go with Freddy. Worth invest in Patrick or Paul or should I look for another one? I had a hard time on Sunday traffic, so I really need a new good scout...

    I have an 8* scout with the same traits as Freddy, he's awesome. I was on the lookout for a ruthless scout until I found another with the exact same traits so I'm working on bringing him up to scratch :lol:

    Of your 2nd scouts, Patrick > Paul but it's a tough choice. I think lucky, dodge and retaliate are really important for scouts, retaliate especially. Since Patrick has 2/3 he gets my vote.

    For me, it's not even close. 100% Paul.

    That being said, I play Scouts aggressively but don't let them soak up hits. If at a high RSL someone else (Abe, Bruiser, etc.) is going to be there to take the hits. With this Scout playstyle, Retaliate and Dodge aren't as important to me. Patrick is also at a deficit because he has Dodge, but no Lucky. In order to get Dodge to trigger at even approaching a reasonable level you usually need to leverage it with Lucky on the Survivor along with Gold Dodge and Gold Lucky on your gear (or run them with Gabe).

    Thank you for your time guys.
    I wont't upgrade Patrick then, when I hasn't got luck. But I will keep him, he's quite usefull in the distance.
    I will try Paul in some missions to see if he fits me or I have to search for another one. Does he have all the traits your looking for @tabernac ? Does he go well with Freddy or should I have a more defensive scout with him?

    @mike118 Paul has perfect traits. Don't even think twice about him. Pour every token you have and every token you receive from now on into him.

    @mike118 - Yes, for my playstyle those are the exact traits that I'm looking for. Some backing evidence:



    Once I rolled her, I took @crambert_nec's advice and threw every token at her that I came across. Even considered retiring my OG Scout, but thankfully didn't.

    I'd say that Paul goes great with Freddy, but you may want to get other opinions as I rarely run 2 Scouts at the same time. There are those occasions tho. For example at high levels I was running Michonne and two Scouts on that one map (Deer In Headlights maybe?) in which there are frequent timed spawns and also auto-spawns and I needed every ounce of Threat Reduction and Swift Strike that I could muster to get through it. In that map I was relying traits triggering and pure offense so I don't think a "Defensive Scout" would have helped me much, but it's possible that I'm totally missing something.

    For the record that survivors name is an homage to Donna/Dava (Honey One Percenter) from the Cycle Sluts from Hell, and not a reference to the term popularized by Occupy Wall Street.
