JekylandHyde XXV medal:


4* buff booster without Ice :snowflake: :x:.

*Aodhan, Cilian and Ferant*:
This looks like a job for us.


I decided to put a few emblems on my Aodhan (+13) and Maheegan (+7) and try them in this, plus they will be helpful in the Fire Contest of elements, so it’s not wasted only on this (plus Maheegan ruined me in the bloody battle). I should probably LB more of my 4* to be honest, a lot of good ones I haven’t done (including these 2 + grevle and more)

Honestly I don’t think too hard about defenses in tournaments anymore, when I used to, they would do badly, even if they “should” have done great, now I shove anything and hope haha

Boldtusk / CC Li Xiu / Aodhan / Grevle / Maheegan

I will go with the same defense as previous tournament :smile:.

Which lineup would you choose?

  • Cillian Lb tank
  • Gormek Clb tank

First draft

Ferant (75/18), Boldtusk (original, costume bonus, 75/20) or Wilbur (costume, 75/20). I can’t decide which one is best contender for center. For now it is Ferant. But Fighter superior tallent is tempting and Wilbur two buffs are insane

Yes, Ferant is the king here still probably, but I’m going to try this. All red for funsies. Just finishing emblems on Aodhan, I just finished him recently.

Hopefully superior revive will annoy some players :smiley:.

Need to finish Kelile, which costume is better?

My personally likes c2. Hit 3, dot 3, and semi heal can’t really beat that. Others like C1 but when on defense someone can easily bring in a cleanser and make her useless

I don’t think Wilbur at wing will be much use. Time he goes off your mid 3 heroes will be gone or severly damaged

Lol you don’t even have to change your defense for 4* tournaments if those colors are not forbidden :smiley:. It just performs too well.

Yes and I get A grade with that defense every times. I don’t see the reason why I have to change :rofl:.

Day 1

O : 3-2

I think my tournament will end quickly this time :joy:. Go with C/CB Sabina/CB Rigard - C Melendor and 3 heroes depend on enemy team in all attack.

Lose against this team in 3rd attack

I go with C Sabina - C Gormek - C Kelile - C Melendor - C Kelile as I want to test how well the C Kelile is. But turn out to be that my both C Kelile barely summon any minion at all :joy:. I think the x2 C Kelile is great in bloody battle because enemy team can’t heal and they all die before they can fire but in buff booster they are strong enough to survive. The board isn’t bad. It has good amount of red but the problem is that there are few purple or green tile. I charge my red kill tank and enemy C Scarlett but without tile for my both healer, my team just can’t survive enemy C2 Caedmon and C2 Li Xiu with C Rigard buff.

Lose again in 5th attack

Go with C Sabina - C Boldtusk - Guardian Falcon - Mielikki - Cillian. The board is bad this time. Enemy Cillian tank fire 3 time before I can charge my red and when I charge my red, enemy Cillian kill my Guardian Falcon. I try my best but with few red tile and Guardian Falcon I can’t do much thing. Manage to kill enemy Sabina before lose.

Overall, I think 4* will be more like old era 5* tournament soon. Originally, 4* is good at healing since there is no great 4* powerful hitter. That make it easy to win by just bring many healer so you team just don’t die. But now we have C2 Caedmon and C2 Li Xiu who are hard hitter like old era 5* when Drake Fong is released in the first time. I think there will be more powerful 4* in the future.

The main problem of the 4* tournament is that healer need 10 tile to charge. There are many time that I can fire my healer because I can’t get the 10th tile. If 4* hitter hit hard like old 5* and healer need 10 tile, the 4* tournament will not be easy any more.

Also C2 Caedmon and C2 Li Xiu are among the best heroes on 4* buff booster for now. Without them, it is impossible so beat them if you don’t have them and board luck :joy:.
D : 0-0

Still don’t get any attack.


3 Ferant tanks on the first day. It’s gonna be a long, tough tournament if this continues.

My anti-Ferant team was Arges-Ametrine-cSabina/Ana-belle + Caedmon and Waddles. Got the 6 Purple tiles in 2 of the 3 fights. The other one, Ferant fired first but could dispel him with Ametrine and then ghosted yellow tiles down the middle for Waddles. His shifting mindless attack is fun if it keeps moving around.

Toughest match was the last one against Ferant flanked by c2Li Xiu and c2Caedmon.

Could kill Ferant before he fired but the Purple tiles dried up. Was lucky that I could charge Waddles both times c2LX was about to fire. Lost Arges and Ametrine, but managed to win as the defense had no healers.

Leveled Kitty for this tournament but she only appeared once so far since I needed dispellers more than Ailment reflect so far. She’ll be more active if I face c2LX or Waddles.

Defense is 4-2 to start. Looks like it will get hit a lot again.

Good luck everyone!


Mine was terrible too!
No tiles to even charge, I died fast on one of mine, and didn’t get any kills.
The second one I lost I managed to kill the tank - 4 healers + Tiburtus, I just couldn’t do anything.

Day 1
O: 3-2
D: 0-0 (I hope it doesn’t stay this way)


O : 5-0
D : 1-0

Faced 4 out of 5 red tanks, 2x Mack, 1x Ferant, 1x CC Kelile. Also 3 of those defs had CC Caedmon, so 1st day was already quite challenging. Even 1st days in tourneys are not easy anymore.


My defense was not hit on day 1 so it remains a C

Day 2
O: 5-0
D: 0-0

Li Xiu costume 2 saved my butt a lot today


Day 2

O : 5-0 (8-2)

Go with same tactic. As I get 2 lose yesterday, I get much weaker enemy team. The board is average. And my C Kelile summon many minion as usual :smile:. So, easy win.

I think x3 healer is still key to get 25-0 but the other 2 heroes have to be powerful heroes. Here are list of the best for each color

  • Purple : Proteus
  • Yellow : C2 Li Xiu
  • Green : C2 Caedmon
  • Red : C Kelile
  • Blue : (?) C2 Sonya (Still not release but expect to be as powerful as C2 Caedmon)

The support hero like C Gormek also need as well but those heroes are best main damage dealer for each color.

D : 1-1

Start with 1 lose but get 1 more win in a few hours before day 2 start :slightly_smiling_face:.
