Guess I’ll re-ask the question from the Legends Family thread here.
Will the HoTM family bonus apply from Day 3 of the tournament for the Defense and Offense teams?

Last time this tourney ran there was no Morel, and I expect him now a lot in tanking position. In fact:

Thinking about switching Onyx for Seshat.

Dunno if Elizabeth is handy here, as she is wrong color. Hannah will definitely see some use though, Motega maybe too.

I was thinking something like this?

And I hope for a lot of krampus tanks… those minions are good food for Skadi.

Going with this

I am strongly believe the answer to your question is yes.
So the Family bonuses will be applied to your heroes in the tournament in the middle of the week.


Think this is what I’ll be using.

That’s what I’m assuming as well, based on what happened with the first Limit Break quest where we started facing 4* Limit Broken blues in the middle of that tournament

Going with Cobalt, Freya, Krampus, Elizabeth, Thor… I hope it will be a minion/fiend nightmare :grin:

Going to give this a shot.

Thinking about this:

With a bit of luck, it could be ok. :slight_smile:

Let’s see what happens…

I will try to minimise luck!

Bring your blues please! :rofl:

Mitsu will probably melt from a blue stack but IF not, than game over…

What do you think?

Is it a good idea to bring Mitsuko in this setup?

I’ve got 2 initial thoughts but would love any advice on which one should work best or if I should mix and match. The 3 blues pictured are definitely in. LB Devana+19 also an option. Thanks and good luck!

I am biased here, so take this with a pinch of salt…

Take the first team, but replace Mica with Joon…

I do think that Mitsu is a wild card here… she can win matches on her own… She wont go down to 3 blue tiles… and that 4 turns reflect is brutal!

My 2 gems…


Krampus would be ideal, but since I don’t have him, good old Richard will have to do.

Considered CB Magni at flank, but I think liz+uraeus will put more pressure early.

I’ve got this lineup now. Thinking about using Russula as Tank… Good move or not?
