I think I will try C.Ishtaak, Grevle, Brienne+cb center with Tyrum and Melia in the corners… Relying on slashes basically. Melia is there to finish the job…


Double attack-up buff but hopefully streched out…
What do You think?

I’d tank cIsshtak, but I prefer more aggressive defenses. Also put the def troop on Grevle?

As always, thank you kindly @PlayForFun for creating the tournament threads, and so many others! :+1::+1:

My first draft:


Like this?

I appreciate your help!

I was thinking something like this?

Maybe mnessus, as his dispell is very useful in buff booster. Plenty of good options; I also see a lot of costume beliths in the last tournament.

Last time ⚔ [13 Jun, 2021] - 112th Raid Tournament - 3* Buff Booster, No Fire/Red - #82 by WaVe I also tanked with Grevle and got straight A defense.

Edit: slight switching for optimal sequence of specials when multiple heroes are charged


I think I will try this one

Good luck everyone!


Initial thoughts

Will need to fully emblem Noril!

I think I’ll stick to the second option

Any feedback much appreciated.

Good luck everyone


Second option; you haven’t leveled your costumes yet, so first option is less dangerous.

And maybe switch grevle and noril? That will give noril more time to get his stacks rolling. And maybe switch mnessus with tyrum? Then you have 3G/Y/P, with only melia you are inviting a dark stack.

Thanks @WaVe

Will do :blush:

I will go with this defense :slightly_smiling_face:

What do you guys think of Schrubbear tank in this format?

My other option is basically Belith, my Grevle is not leveled yet.


Here is my lineup. I should have c.ulmer maxed by the start of the tournament. I was debating whether to swap melia for Maeve but I think the slayers are great for this tournament.

This is my def

Other candidates are bjorn and poppy. Any suggestions are welcome.

You might need more firepower. Maybe swap in poppy

I do not think that Shrubby is a good tank… but good flank if you use a damaging green tank

Big no if you tank with Grevle, Belith or any passive green.

Yes if you tank with Carver, Iahtaak, etc


Think. This…

What about this


I should probably limit break dolgoon before tomorrow. He has been the star of previous buff boosters. I imagine he’ll do well this week as well.

I do wish I had more slayers

I decided to drop my Dolgoon tank for Grevle. Figured Dolgoon will charge faster but Grevle has more certainty with just one set of special skills. :thinking:
