So I am not the only one who thought the prep phase should be already on … What is going on?


Looks like summer break! :joy::dancer:


Someone’s made a bug thread:


And is now up and running :slight_smile:

Op updating to reflect the rules.


Starting off with this… Who knows how it’ll do… :man_shrugging:


Anyone can help me ? My boosters in the 4* stars league are mostly healers . How many boosters is it advisable to place in this format? And healers?

Is it better to run wu kong instead of Mist? And c.rigard in place of c.tiburtus?

Seeing @Guvnor line up i think i will max my Boril only for tournaments proposes.


Thinking about this, struggling a bit with positions…any thoughts?


Haha don’t look at me for advice on this tournament… I suck at setting 4* buff booster defences… :stuck_out_tongue:

I just shove things in and go “maybe this’ll work…”

My current defence team thoughts are:

  1. boost attack using buffs
  2. outlast them
  3. kill em with slash damage.

Going with this one. I think C. Melendor or Caedmon is a good green option. But… Brynhild is tooo good to not include in the defense team.

And red option is tricky for me. Wilbur provides buff to the opposition too :man_facepalming:

The other red option is Scarlett or Guardian Falcon. Not sure how much value they’d add in this format.


I have better sucess in rush format for example , but the buff booster is a tricky one to me too.

Possible sustitutions im thinking about are Boldtusk for lancelot and or c.tiburtus for c.rigard. This would add more survavility to my team, though to the extent to be so passive. Anyways, as you said , the key should be on the buff boost and the slash attacks.



Thinking about this - Boldtusk is my the tankiest 4* and gives nice buff if survives long enough (+revive?), Triton is doing nice dmg + buff, Melendor to give extra survivability and 2 buffs. Mist and Tiburtus for dmg and to cripple the attacker.

Not sure it I should switch Melendor with Caedmon+7 though. Having two snipers is nice, but so as the survivability with many buffs around… Will see by the morning. :man_shrugging:t2:


Was thinking this:

Boldtusk as tank, C-melendor buffs a lot and dispels, c-rigard buffs and cleanses, triton buffs and hits (with all those buffs: very hard). Yellow is the hard choice: wu buffs, and with all those buffs everything that huts will hurt a lot, but the RNG can be fickle… Other options are danza or chao, not really sure what will be the best choice here.

Other options:
Purple: proteus +18, tibertus (c) +14 (cyprian, merlin+10)
Blue: kiril(c)+4, sonya(c)+10, grimm+12, jott, boril
Green: almur+10 ,gadeirus+3
Red: Wilbur+10, colen+7, sumitomo, kelile
Yellow: danza+6, chao+1, jackal+12, hu tao +1


1st draft…


I’m thinking about using this team as my defensive team:

But I really like Brynhild as a tank for Buff tournament, so I thought about this possibility:

But then again I really liked how Grevle performed in the 3* tournament, so I thought about this:

So which one? I’m leaning toward the Boldtusk tank. I like Brynhild, but she only heals 3 which means I need a 2nd healer. Thus, who would I swap out for either Kiril, Rigard or Gullinbursti? I really liked Grevle in last tournament, but Gullinbursti is probably too slow in this tournament to be affective. I also have Guardian Jackel, Colon and Grimm in my back pocket. Jackel I think is too squishy for defense. Colon and Grimm are ok, but doesn’t thrill me here. Thoughts?


I have no experience with Gullinbursti, but last 4* tourney (no red, I can’t remember was it rush attack or buff booster), I wasn’t impressed by Brynhild. Was seeing her as a tank, as a flank, but I wasn’t feeling any pressure in those battles - wether she fires or not. Boldtusk is my choice, so that’s my opinion what’s best for you too. :joy:
Also, not sure Almur is a best option, outside of green stack. I would look for another green.

Defenses of the top 10 finishers from the last time this tourny ran. I noticed several multiple healer defenses.



I think that Gilinbursti should be ok in a rush tournament but i cant see him firing being slow even in tank position… i think that Brynhild or BT will do a much better job. In fact i think that BT with his revive skill is more annoying overall.

@Slobix you have a point here , i have changed my def line up to place BT. Hes sturdy buff and revives so he has a place of course.

About green its or c.mel or brynhild , or if someone has maybe Gaderious but i cant see a clear competitor for buff tournaments
