You know the drill by now:


My main idea here is to have a fast defence, with Mist as a tank - she my best option here. These are my options, any idea how to improve them?

I see there were similar ideas last time, so, what would be the best one? :slight_smile:

Will check :laughing:


alas, my only Yellows are the vanillas, Lady Wooly and Danza. been trying for Mist forever but…

thinking of these two choices

the Jack defense seems better cause it’s faster, LJ synergizes well with Li but he’s frail and slow… Jack at least more likely to fire once, although his special isn’t such a game changer

What think ye, @Vikingblood80 "?

1st draft…


This is going to be a hard tournament, purple is my best (4*) colour, and I favour healers with my emblems. I have mist, but only since last valhalla, so she’s not leveled yet. Leveling a 4* takes me a few weeks.

Came up with this:

Li is a decent tank, wilbur to share damage, LJ for damage and manaslow, sonya to dispell and jackal is my most emblembed yellow and if he fires, it hurts.

Questions: li, sonya and LJ can be costumed or not… which version to choose? And maybe replace a hero?

Is Gullinbursti viable in this format? Not sure if increase hp is within the banned mechanics in the bloody battle rule.

It doesn’t do anything.

Health Boosting in Bloody Battle


Increase Hp doesn’t work with bloody battle. Gulli won’t heal but he will do his damage. But I wouldn’t recommend him in this tournament

Having no purple is a pain, but here is my initial plan:

Excluding healers and purple my other maxed options are chao, sonya, boril and Lancelot. I also have Peters and Wilbur halfway through their last ascension, but probably too early for them this time round.

I was toying with the idea of using my +20 Boldtusk just for the attk boost, but current thought is to leave him out.

Oh, tough one for me this…I just have Kiril, Mist and Scarlett as maxed 4 *s. Well, Mist is my savior then! Thinking her, Scarlett, and, I don´t know, Kvasir,and Gan Ju? Those are the best Holy Heroes I have…Together with Valen as a sniper? Or Azar? Speed always seem to be the key here. Hm.

Good luck all :slight_smile:

PS. Question. Mist and Hansel on Defense. Do they ‘play smart’? Meaning, do they not interfere with each other? Or does the system take care of Mist firing at 3 heroes, then Hansel always targets another?

Let’s see what these guys will do

The target is random, with mist hitting 3 its more likely hansel will also hit the same target.

If it is your team, the AI will always fire mist and hansel at the same target, if it’s against you they will always fire at different targets, at least it feels so :wink:

Thank you for clarifying! And hah, I totally see what you mean with that :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

Not sure. I failed horribly for setting up my defense 5 weeks in a row…changed defenses a bit and none of them were better than before…just worse.

Both versions look good. Leaning a bit more towards Grimm and #1. Also not sure which version of Li would be better this week.

So I am running this


I would really recommend putting Shakal on left wing so he would fire before Li. I also would recommend using Druid Sonya as she might spawn minions and I see cleanse more powerful on bloody than dispell.

Nope. Purely random if they target the same heroes or not…and yes you are right both skills hinder each other…with Hansel you want the target to have full mana Mist delays this.
