I’m a bit torn on this one. I don’t have any green buffers at 4star so I am considering going with a no buffs for you defence.

Probably being crazy.

Plan to use Proteus, Caedmon, LBKiril costume, Peter’s, Mist.

Proteus is only +7, the rest are at least +18

Do the health and mana stacks of Orla count as “buffs” when they are activated?

I believe they do, stacks should be good to go

Wren finally gets some action for tourneys


I think I will go Sapphire, Brynhild, C-Melendor, Ametrine, Jackal. Melendor tanking because he’s LBed and +20. Ninjas will hopefully dodge, counter and attack. Jackal is also +20LB so he should do some damage.

Hopefully someone can confirm with 100% certainty, but I don’t think they do. I think that stacks are treated differently than buffs

Yes, stacks are counted as a buff

This was from a 5* Buff Booster and Yang Mai’s attack stack is one of the 6 buffs counted

So in the case of the Slayers, they get 2 buffs from their stacks


I will go with this defense.


Too bad Cillian and Aodhan can’t make this trip.

1st draft

I am still levelling Wren

First draft. Speedleveled my Wren for it. She felt weak without emblems but it was hard to test against map monsters or 5* as compared to 4* heroes. Some nice folks pointed out in the Wren thread that she’s pretty decent so I’m giving her a shot. cSabina, Proteus and Gulli could make the team but I wanted to go mono green for this one. Should level some troops for it though.

I was thinking this

Brynhild really shines in this format, esp. when combined with sister Mist. Almur is also fast and gives green EDD, with 3 greens that should be felt. Add in caedmon for dispell and tibs for DD.

Here’s mine. I thought about a debuffer, but that would hurt Wren if Wren can’t hit multiple enemies. Marcel got added in case someone tries for an attack down.

My initial thoughts! I can’t decide. Mist + Brynhild combination to good to ignore. I’m hoping I can finish LB Almur. Any suggestions appreciated.

Ok got some options. Advice appreciated as always and hope others find help here too. Feels wierd not including lb-c-mel in the mix but he’s ready to go too.

Hansel here could sub in for green wabbit in the other set-ups.

And it this one the ninjas could be moved to wings and greens go to the center.

Thanks again and good luck!

I like your 2nd team but I’d probably put LB-C Mel on the right wing and put Caedmon on the left wing?! But then, I rarely score well in tournament defence!

Giving it a second thought - Ametrine is too good to leave out. I wish I had mine maxed but unfortunately she is sitting at 1:1

Going with this…

Day 1

O : 5-0

Go with C/CB Caedmon, C Melendor, Mist, C Rigard/CB Sabina, Proteus in all attack. The board is average today. There is a bad board in 4th attack but I still win. Limit break on C/CB Caedmon, C Melendor and Mist make them much tougher. If the board isn’t very bad, I will not lose :slightly_smiling_face:

D : 0-5

Simply “mirror” of my offense result for now :joy:
