Putting together my team now. Not happy with it but think it’s best I can do. A lot of my max 4s are healer.

I was thinking about pure dmg dealers in defence. I have some options for stalling, but I can’t remember how Wilbur or reposters perform in this tournament. :man_shrugging:t2:
So maybe something lile this:

This team can certainly punish a bad opening board, so let’s see. I guess a lot will depend on c.Tiburtus firing and getting that defence debuf.

I figured, Wilbur on tank, as he’s highly emblembed, and the defense up/down is extra strong without healing. Proteus to stop mana, and the rest my strongest damage-dealers.

Still weak in green, almur alone is not very threatening, but I guess he’s the best green option? Can also do melendor for another defense up and dispell…

After rethinking I have changed around and put lancelot in place of boldtusk. Still get some attack boost for tiburtus and a bit of increase mana gen too. However not expecting it to perform very well.

What about mechanics of bonus HP in bloody battle? Is it counting as healing?

So far I’ve said it this way, do you think Jack’ohero is a good choice? Or should I give peters or buddy instead?

why not put your maxed chao in the wing instead of rigard? Rigard is already a non threatening wing when he can heal… haha do you really wanna rely on his slash attack damage :stuck_out_tongue:

Gonna go with this - my yurple combo has served me well for 4* bloody battle in the past. Fingers crossed it works again :slightly_smiling_face:


I had considered that but was worried by possible DoT and defence downs so had thought a cleanser might be needed. I am probably playing it too safe. Can never make up my mind…

Can anybody share some experience with Wilbur in defence in these tourneys? I like him when I have control over his buffs, but never used him in defence. I do remember he caused me some troubles im the past though. The alternatives I’m considering are:

I could bring Wilbur to +9 if he’s a viable choice for this tourney. In theory, he could improve survivability of the team, at the cost of removing a solid, fast damage dealer.

On offense sure - I don’t have sonya or caed costumes so I’ll sometimes bring Rigard just to cleanse too. On defense most of your team will probably be dead before your Rigard can cleanse, and the attacker could just sink tiles into him without worry, wait until after he fires to give you DOT. Chao on the other hand might delay a critical special or snipe an opponent before they can snipe you. Just my two cents.

I’m going to run with this, I think:


Falcon, Buddy, and Colen were part of the team that got me Grade A last time. This time, I’m swapping in Costume Tibs in the slot that Grimm had last time… and Danzaburo in the slot that Li Xiu had before.

Normally I’d put Costume Li Xiu here for the guaranteed damage and slight mana cut, but… I don’t use Danzaburo much and I want to put the little guy out there. :slight_smile: If he hits swords, he’ll make a mess that can’t be healed, and that big blind will hurt. If he hits the bottle, the defense will help the team and the mana speed can’t hurt either. My gut tells me that Li Xiu would be better here, but I’m throwing him in just because he’s a fun little dude. :smiley:

Good gaming!


I’m a big fan of using Wilbur on offense and of fighting him on defense. :stuck_out_tongue: most of the time it actually ends up helping my team since I can bring a cleanser (or def up hero) and a debuffer and actually get a nice free spirit link. He’s also much more effective with AoE heroes as support which it doesn’t look like those are the strongest 4*s in your roster. And C-tibs and him just overwrite each others def down. Not the worst but not the most synergistic team. I like your first team. :slightly_smiling_face:

Thanks, that was my feeling too.
Working on some AoE heros, but they are not ready. Anyway, guess I’ll go with the 1st. Wilbur might see some action in offence, that’s for sure. :wink:
