No purple? Oh no! :joy:

I’m thinking of taking this for a spin:


I only have a few emblemed 3* heroes, and these are two of them that I thought were worthy of it. Kvasir is the other, but I think his Fast speed doesn’t benefit enough from Rush Attack to bring him along on this one (and he’s only at +8 so far, anyway).

I’m obviously going to try to get Arman to 3-50 prior to the tournament start. I’m hoping that his damage and healing penalty plus Jahangir’s heavy damage and DoT will bring in the wins on defense.

EDIT: Are there any non-Purple 3* cleansers?? For dispel I know there are Belith and Mnesseus, maybe others, but what about cleansers? Without Tyrum or Costume Tyrum, maybe the Sand & Fire damage combo will be extra good! :smiley:

Good gaming!


This one is interesting because there are only two cleansers in the 3* category - Gill-ra and cTyrum - and both are purple so banned. This means the more status ailments you can pile on the better, and what better way to start than to cast defense down on the attackers?

cBrienne will again be my tank of choice because there are only two counters to her for this tourney: Gunnar and Kailani. Gunnar is the weak color, so most likely people will be taking Kailani. In order to discourage reds, I’ll have two blue flanks, most likely Nordri and Chick Jr. No cleanser means no cure against elemental defense down, so Chick Jr will hit like a truck. Wings will be yellow of course just to be extra annoying.

In fact I think my defense will be almost identical to the one I ran for the last 3* rush attack tourney: Melia-Nordri-cBrienne-Chick Jr-Pixie (last tourney allowed all elements so Bjorn was used instead of Pixie on right wing)


Here’s the defenses of the top 10 finishers last time this tourny was ran. Keep in mind there have been some great new 3* heroes released since this last tourny.


This is what I ran last time:

I’ll probably use something very similar in honesty…

Maybe try Kvasir in there…? Or go with Ulmer & Chick Jnr…?


Or even something like this thru the middle…


I am bored. That’s it :joy:



Time to start working on bauchan soon, as manacontrol is strong in most tournaments. For now, pixie is the best manacontroller I have

Plenty of other options though:
Yellow: melia+7, bane(c)+1
Blue: gunnar(c)+7, gato+4, chick jr, ulmer+1
Green: belith (c)+7,mnessus+7, berden, carver, brienne
Red: hawkmoon (c)+7, namahage+4, azar+4, sudri, ei-dunn.


Figure I’ll go with this for now:


I just don’t have tanky option in yellow… So I decided to finally feed up Kvasir. Will be able to give him up to 6 tallents by tomorrow. So, the defence will most probably look like this:

Grevle and Gunnar as flanks to discourage stacking of the opposite colour. Not too powerful defence, but could be very annoying if attacker doesn’t have a good board.




This is going to be my defense team, if Kailani and Gato fire their special and the enemy team don´t dispel I have a strong chance to win.


Another 3* Rush attack so soon? Well good, it’s time for my attack combo to shine! I never really use purples in 3* rush attack tourneys, so best color for me to exclude.

I’ll go with this :

Players will most likely stack green, but I don’t mind. Arman could shine here as tank and I also used useless Dawa in defense just because she never ever gets used anywhere. It’s time to shine for her! :laughing:


Should be ok…


how is this? I’m on the fence - could be too squishy. Depends on the bees.


1st draft…


Wouldn’t you want the order reversed so C Hawk fires first if multiple heroes are charged at the same time?
