Opinions about which has some potential? Tryin to decide which to upgrade, or maybe not.

    I would recommend to upgrade the Manticore to level 10 before anything else as it's one of the core units in the game and it has also a lot of potential in some situations due to being a high-altitude unit which behaves like a helicopter.

    with the shepherds vulnerability to turncoat damage I would concentrate on the manticore, clear the AA from a base and the manticore is safe, you cant say the same thing for the shepherd

    Shepherds have the range and the power as the Manticore picks off targets. Used with Blackout is wicked deadly so upping all three

    focus on upgrading your manticore instead of the shepherd for now. we will see how useful the shepherd is when it's tech is released

    I have put upgrading my Manticores as priority, the Shepard can wait and herd his sheep later in FarmVille.

    It's no contest.  Shepherd is a disaster.  The more effective units you turncoat the sooner you die.  Leave it in your hanger in the event Kixeye does a rework on it, or the tech fixes it.  

    Manticores are reasonably  effective.  I have 8 of them and spread them out and have most targeting different things at all times.  It's a lot of target management but they move slow enough it's not hard.  Leave Rubi on so they keep moving.  They get the high altitude work done much faster than herald alone does.  Mine will be level 10 in 3 days, and will then automatically be level 19 with my tokens.  I'm looking forward to seeing how they perform fully maxed.
