Fingers crossed the lack of healing will mean we don’t just see a bucketload of GTV.

Not holding my breath… We may just get a demonstration of how Telly is still a top tank even without all her powers :wink: Who’d have thought it.

Haven’t decided yet whether to tank with Telly, BK or Freya.
I may well be community minded and leave Telly out, even though lots of people will run her just to get that OP Vela flank insta-synergy.

The easy way to avoid that would be if they banned green for the tournament.

They come around every now and again :joy:

I’m just expecting to see the same lack of variation as is now normal in mid-high diamond…
And it makes me sad - I normally really enjoy tournaments, but this doesn’t have me excited… Will have a go of course but not likely to gem in for a continue.

@Guvnor I just had an epiphany. What if you’re correct about these tournaments because sg is actually waiting for your posts and then setting the tournament settings. :exploding_head:

also arent bloody battles all about speed? why yunnan?

The minions provide pseudo healing anyway so if green is allowed, you absolutely will see an (over)abundance of Telly tanks everywhere. Actually I think bloody battle is where minions are most effective since they’re the closest you can get to “healing” without actually healing.

Looking forward to this, to see myself how Telluria does without HOT :slight_smile:

Should I use my telly in this tournament? :smiley: Give her some face time before she’s nerfed into oblivion.

Haha nah I’m just following the cycle from the first go around.

Going with Yunan tank cause, while he’s not fast, he sticks around and protects the rest of the squad so they can charge up and fire

or this?

Rainbow is obviously preferred but Wilbur is too easy to exploit on defense. Option 2 does present an easier target for yellow stacks though…

Hi, first time i post.

One question : is Heimdall’s HP boost considered as a healing? I know resurection is meaningless but he is my most valuable tank atm…

Thank you!

Even without the HoT, GTV’s going to wreck people in this tournament. A lot of people will be out by the end of the second day.

No Telluria here, so this has to do:

  • Kadilen 4/58 (will be soon 4/80)
  • Vela +12
  • Sif +4
  • Clarissa 4/80
  • Natalya +7

Thinking about switching Kadilen for Greg +14 maybe? Just don’t like he’s Average, but with his emblems …

How quickly can you get Kadilen up?

In terms of “punishing bad boards” - Kadilen at tank (:scream:) could work… It’s probably not happening in time, though.
It makes use of the crazy Vela insta-synergy and whips anyone that brings reds. Sif IMHO is slightly better as a flank anyway and Clarissa is going to be quick enough at wing if not using a holy tank.

Is Greg your only other green option?

I can get her to max tomorrow I think, given the autofarming of Rare Stage 3 and the ton of green trainers I still have, including 4* from Springvale. Food may be an issue though. Greg and her are my only green 5* close to be maxed, from 4* I have Gadeirus, Melendor, Hansel and Brynhild - healers barring Hansel, so not really an option.

Edit: probably will put Kadilen as tank and flank her with Sif and Vela (milking her while she is not nerfed) as you said. And if I get lucky and get her Zelda cosplay tomorrow she might as well profit from costume bonus while I level it.
