Top 10 finishers’ defenses from the last 2 times.


[Poll] Best tank in 4* buff booster


Too lazy to think this weekend. Just gonna go with the strongest rainbow. Any buffs are a bonus


I’m pretty much set

C Rigard, yellow, Wilbur+20, Boril, Caedmon+20

Just cant decide whether to use Mist or Gillinbursti as my yellow. They are both +19.

Coming down to if I want the buff prevention and extra def down from Mist or the addition heal and damage from the pig.

Leaning towards Mist currently, but willing to be convinced either way


Probably this.
Brynhild is great as tank with buff booster. Same with rigard c.
Yellow with emblems is between mist and gulli, but with gulli I would use 3 healers, I think that’s to much.
Blue and red are without emblems (jott would have some, but he is slow not sure if two slow damage dealers are a good idea)
Sumle hits hard, brynhild should hold him alive and make him faster. All the other reds are more support heroes or like lancelot or Scarlett extremely fragile.


Hmmm, I can’t even decide what tank to use. :see_no_evil:

My general idea is to have 2 healers + 3 hitters and some buffs involved. So, here are some thoughts:

Also, I have few more favorite “buff booster” heros, like c.Rigard+18, Triton+11, c.Kashrek+20… But it looks to me that I have better available options in these colours. Comments are appreciated! :slight_smile:

@Slobix I’d go Brynhild tank. Wish I had her for this tournament.

All elements is always hard to figure out, too many options! Unfortunately, most heavy buffing heroes are also healers… unfortunately, my brynhild has just started leveling, and won’t be ready.

First attempt, but I guess too many healers:


I guess rigard is my best tank-option (or maybe kiril?).

Then yellow: li or mist?
Blue: sonya, kiril or triton?
Green: caedmon or melendor?
Red is hardest. I guess either BT or Wilbur, or scarlet as hitter? BT overlaps with rigard…
Purple I’m guessing rigard, but maybe tibertus?

Hello again @Slobix

Looking over heros you posted as teams as well as those you mentioned, my choice might be for all color team:

:yellow_heart: Mist does alot of enemy damages
:heart:Wilbur protects your 5 & gives def.+
:green_heart:Brynhyld heals 3 + her other traits
:blue_heart:Trinton +s to any HEAL & nice sniper hit
:purple_heart: Costume Rigard = more heal & attack bonus & cleanser

In that order left to right


Hello @WaVe

Seems you do have the heros for all color team if that’s your desire:
Maybe shake things up with;

:yellow_heart: Li Xiu does alot of mana damages
:heart:Wilbur protects your 5 & gives def. boost
:heart: Scarlett decreases enemy attack x6
:green_heart:C. Mel HoT & bonus def & buff dispel
:blue_heart:Trinton +s to any HEAL & nice sniper hit
:purple_heart: Costume Rigard = more heal & attack bonus & cleanser

In that order left to right

Hopefully that information assists you. :point_left::100:

& level her up. Fantastic hero. lol

I feel really good about this defensiv team… which usally means it will get blasted. :sweat_smile::sweat_smile::sweat_smile:


Tough looking team @Chris214

Seems alot of posts so far are thinking to go with all color teams, 5 different colored heros. That does give hero teams more tiles to benefit from since any color tile builds mana theoretically and it will likely make room for highest lvld. troops to help in battles.
Definitely pluses to using all 5 colors.

I don’t know that I will go that path. Undecided.

Your team of 5 look fine to me. Good luck!

Hello everyone :wave:
ty @Randy :100: for your shared data :arrow_heading_down:

I notice more of top teams using all colors for hero slots. Which is good to know how their defense held up.

I could go that direction too.

Am considering an all heal team.
Why you might be thinking?
It’s not bloody battle and it’s not rush.
This is buff booster. & my defense goal is to prevent opponents’ attacks.

I think these 5 might be interesting? Comments?


If my C. Rigard is ready & should be

thinkng I wouldn’t want to face those fab 5, lol

Undecided though for this tournament.

Next time this 4 buff arrives I will be ready;*

With all colours allowed, going rainbow is usually the best. Not sure about melendor on tank; when he goes off, the attacker won’t have charged yet (or will delay if (s)he’s smart). Rigard has a lot higher defense, so will last longer on tank. Li, being average, is better in flank then in wing. So maybe:

Triton/mist or li / rigard / wilbur / caedmon ? But then only 1 healer; buff booster is attrition with buffing your attackvalue to the max, so I think I prefer 2 healers. So:

Triton / li / rigard / melendor / Scarlet ?


Triton / melendor / Rigard / Wilbur / mist? But then low on hitters…

I will think some more about the options and possible counters.

Btw: brynhild is my current green project, but she’s at 2/45 now, so will a few more weeks before being done.

Mack would be a decent choice for this tourney

I’m gonna roll the dice :stuck_out_tongue:


Thinking about just going with my regular old defense on this one. I could sub in Wu Kong, but that would give me one less actual hitter.


Dunno if tooo passive.
Either thinking swap wilbur for colen.
Or swap boar with chao.


Nah, I wouldnt recommend. Boar is a game changer and is nicely protected by Bryn and Wilbur

U would add area dmg dealer for Jabbar though… Especially since you have Wilbur and sniper dmg is more dispersed (less noticable) :slight_smile:
