Might try this:

Doubting to put in Ferant / cBK

Black Knight vs cBlack Knight at tank. Or maybe put him at flank and put cGravemaker in the middle…?

I’m going to try out Ilmarinen, wish it was rush though

I am putting my cBK as flank, and Elizabeth as a tank.


Any feedback is welcome, but I’m thinking about this…I also have Elizabeth 20+ and LB

I would put Liz as Flank (or tank) and Zhang as wing. I’m no expert though


I think I’m going with this one. I want to give cJabber something to do, it annoys me so much that I have him but he has so few usecases in the current state of the game, where purple tanks roam.

I struggle most with setting up for Bloody Battle, especially at 5* level.

Can never decide for example if LotL’s minions annoyance factor make up for the lack of healing part of her skill.

I think I’m going with this:


The thinking behind it is Ferant can slow a team down if it’s not a good starting board. Which should let Viscaro fire, allowing sand damage from Uraeus. Gormek is on the right so that doesn’t interfere with Uraeus anti minion effect, plus getting rid of meat shields.

Anzogh is mainly there as another sturdy red. Other option there is JF


Who’s the better tank here?

  • Elizabeth
  • Ferant

I have so few of the ‘good’ heroes for this. thinking about just going with this:

Although i have Moreau and Zekena i could also sub in.

I’m a little torn. I do have Liz and fiends are nasty here, but speed kills so I think I’d prefer to go speedy first. These are my two lines of thought. I do have Khepri and Liz tho who I was excited to try this bloody battle

One last option that’s on my mind

Putting out this trash defense (which is the best I can do)

I expect I’ll be running a lot of mono dark this week on offense. I’m not expecting great things.

Not sure how I feel about this team, I’m still considering swapping Ludwig in for Ferant. But this is what I’m going with unless I change my mind.

This will likely be a painful and short week.

At the last minute I subbed in Freya for Marjana. Figured the beefy minions would be better than the snipe.

I haven’t good Red tank…


Day 1
Offence: 5-0
Defence: 1-3 (E)

I went mono-red.
Zimkitha, Wilbur, G Falcon, Zenobia amd Vanda

My defence
(I should have switched Zenobia + Zimkithia, but oh well)


O: 4-1, D: 0-3 E/?/?/?/?
I lost 3rd battle against
I tried to play mono yellow (Mist, Jackal, Griffin, Joon, Kara), but BK fired twice before I charged my Mist. Joon and Kara couldn’t fire even once :confused:
I don’t have many good 5*, so 4-1 is enough to make me happy :slight_smile:

Other opponents were easy


Good luck everyone!
