3* tournaments are always tough since I pulled all emblems off my 3* heros. Oh well. Should still be a lot of fun! :wink:

This should be interesting, with custume 3 s and S3s’, I should probably put emblems on those 3*s…

Im going over my tank options. Treble could work well here, solid def plus his other benefits maybe flanked by gunnar non-costume and a blue hitter.

By Ulf with his bushel of bonuses could also play well here, tho less stout than the green badger. I could flank as above with blue hitter role filled by gato.

Also contemplating costume Renfeld yurple def.

And then there non-costume (but with bonus) gunnar flanked by hawkmoon and azar both dressed up.

The only thing I see missing is a debuffer. Could work one in there maybe on a wing with belith, mnesus, or og-tyrum. Good thing there is all day tomorrow to decide.


Thinking maybe using this:

Alternatively maybe this:

Plenty of 3* options:


I was thinking this:

Regular gunnar to soak up damage and buff, belith costume (really curious how she will do, first time in costume that I’ll use her) to heal and prevent debuff (which will probably count as buff), hawkmoon costume (because awesome), tyrum to dispell and melia for damage and buff.


I will try this. I didn’t use any emblems on any 3* heroes.


I’m going with an experimental team


May be this one


Not sure if I should put a healer in. Would use cHawkmoon, except that her buff overwrites Brienne’s.


Two options but what would be the best one? I’m afraid that option one is too much def and not enough offense, depending on normal hits, not specials


Dispell enemy buffs? Then this is the wrong version of Tyrum.


Think of going this… @sleepyhead

Many other options esp green: Mnesseus, Belith_c, By-Ulf

You are correct, forgot to change costume. Corrected in my defense, thanks for noticing.


@Vikingblood80 looks good to me.

Belith-C, probably not, the HoT will overwrite Hawkmoon’s. Buff dispel immunity is nice, but that’s half her special wasted. Similar reasoning for By-Ulf (though I am aware he has more effects).

That leaves Muggy vs. Mnesseus. Mnesseus is tempting for the speed + directly offensive special, but you already have Tyrum for that, and Muggy’s resurrection is enticing. # of emblems could sway me, how emblemed is your Mnesseus?

I’m going with the below myself.

Mnesseus is my most highly-emblemed Green so he gets called up (Shrubbear is +1 and Muggy has nothing, Belith is +6 but Mnesseus faster + hits harder).

Yellows: I thought about Pixie in place of Melia, but Melia is faster, hits all and buffs. Pixie is +5

Purples: I considered Tyrum, but I already have Mnesseus + Bjorn hits two and is a great finisher. Similarly, Balthazar is faster but only hits one… and Chochin hits 3 but I think his mana slow would be better if he were in flank, whereas Bjorn is more likely to kill someone outright even if he fires later in the match… All are +6.



With so many viable green heroes and costumes it’s hard to find a nice synergy.


I hate tournaments like this, because I constantly keep thinking about changing them.
I have already swapped out Gunnar for Agnes, to try her.
I want to max Jarvur (or try) and use him too.

Agnes, Bane, Jarvur = all fast, then have Shrubbear and cHawkmoon
Jarvur is Druid which is great because I have 100+ emblems for, so I can stick plenty on him.
