Congrats on making it the whole way through this time!
Not nearly as many times nor as vocally as I did when I finally got 4* healers after months without them.
Well this was just ugly.
The big change from last time was replacing Mnesseus with Li Xiu. Replacing Elkanen might have been a smarter choice since Mnesseus can dispel Boril’s counterattack. Elkanen, even at 2.60 is tougher though. Hard to say.
In any case there isn’t a whole lot of offense there. Started using items. Joon almost one-shotted Elkanen even with the attack debuff from the bomb. Sensing I was considering unleashing the whole arsenal the three of them got together and tried to use the Ultimate Defense:
No. No no no. Come on… reconnect. Please.
No fair. They had AT&T on their side.
Will try again tomorrow when I have energy again. Maybe with Mnesseus. Or not.
I forgot to screenshot before, so Wilbur is up 2 Nodes more than the very start of the Trials.
The big changes are Vivica hitting max and going to +3, and Wilbur having stepped up from +7 to +11.
I also made progress on troop leveling.
This one was straightforward all around for me.
I had an easy time in the first two Stages, with no concerns at all.
For the third Stage, I expected to need some minor healing and perhaps mana at least, but ended up not needing anything at all.
That was a contrast to last time:
This time, I had a fairly easy time, and don’t lose any heroes at all.
I think I played through a bit better, but Vivica and Wilbur growing up definitely played a part too.
I’d say not in any way that was noticeable to me.
If anything, it was much easier for me this time.
Wilbur stepped up all the way to +13 (!!!), and Vivica is sticking at +3 for now.
I’m planning to switch from 5* to 4* after +4, so I’m looking forward to getting enough Emblems for Vivica’s next step so I can switch to working on Rigard.
Li Xiu got the Trainer Hero, giving a little speed boost to her progress — helpful, as I have a big holy queue.
this was one of my worst trials, i was limited to 5 heroes to use (Mother north 80, Rigard 70, Hensel 70, Viva 70, joon 70)
i always had my HP full with 3 healers and on the final boss Joon always dies first and keep suffering with Frair and Boril the last time it took me around 40 minutes to kill them as they kept healing and resisting Hensel buff, this time i switched rigard with Kunchen (4.30) to get their defense down and Hatter 70 after leveling them both, i had the option to put wilbur (70) as well but didnt need to, i kept stealing their buffs and it was very easy for me this time
i still didnt decide who to get the emblems yet, and the trainer is already fed to Gretel
My team this time. Wu and Wilbur form a formidable duo which help unleash high amounts of tile damage. Last time I managed to beat the final stage but had to carpet bomb the bosses.
The new additions this time are Rigard and Ariel (who were both unlevelled previously… don’t think Ariel was even available during the last trial). This made the trial a lot easier with none of my heroes ever close to dying. Did not need to use a single item this time!
Finished the first 2 stages, hope this team can finish the last one, should be ok especially with the items. What do you reckon? Wish I had a hero that dispells for this trail though
I use a weaker team by replacing 3/60 Boril and Friar Tuck with Mnesseus and Namahage as the previous team lack firepower.
3 Healing Potions, 5 Arrow Barrage, 5 Bomb Attacks, 5 Dragon Attacks.
I bring Rigard and Hawkmoon, supported by Spirit Link of Kailani. I botched my first attempt as Gan Ju and Mnesseus do not have enough firepower to kill Friar Tuck after Joon and Boril die…, wasting carpet bombing items…
Wish I can pull him at the next atlantis…
The monk emblems still waiting for the gambling monkey to appear at my empire. The cleric emblems will go to Rigard.
After 5 months, I finally got Valen… Yes, that 3* dashing duelist have eluded me for 5 months… I am going to max him right away…
Got through the 3rd stage. I got the bosses down to ~50% HP, but then my team was getting low on HP as well. Used all axes and fire bombs and some mana potions on Leonidas to kill the fat man before he could heal again.
Trainer hero is going to Rigard. I loose some exp that way, but the only yellow I still need to level is Hu Tao…
I should have replaced Boril. Riposte doesn’t do anything against these bosses, especially with Wilbur’s spirit link
I completed the 3rd level of the quest with the same team as last time. I’m not sure if it was significantly harder, it was simply very hard for a team of 4-star classic hereos using mostly tile damage to kill the bosses.
This video jumps straight to the boss wave.
My squad is kinda pitiful in this piety trial.
Did the first 2 and im out.
2 clerics and 3 monks walk into a bar…
Significant changes this time around, as Wu got the hook for babby Tarlak, and my 3.60 Agwe was replaced by Valeria.
These changes made for a significant damage increase, primarily as a result of Tarlak’s buff. That buff also helped keep folks alive in the final encounter, as I was able to heal through the counter-attack damage. Wilbur’s defense and spirit link we’re also invaluable, helping to spread the damage around to maximize the healing efficacy. I used one bomb and 10 minor healing potions, and the bomb wasn’t especially necessary. Valeria did siphon off some of Tuck’s healing, but I can’t speak to how pivotable that was in winning the fight.
The emblems are going to Ma North and to Tarlak (eventually). The 3* hero will probably go to a hero I’ve not pulled yet.
Team i used for final level. I used Kunchen in first 2, but didn’t want to take a slow healer in this time.
I used a few potions and also all axes and all bombs. Used just one Dragon cause those buggers are expensive!
I didn’t finish all levels last time.
Last time my Boril wasn’t at 3/60 yet and i used Friar Tuck instead of Wu. My Wu last time was somewhere in the 3rd tier.
Yes, Rigard. Li Xiu will be my next maxed yellow. I think I’m going to do that before i take Poseidon to 3/70. Boril isn’t really fire power, but his riposte kills baddies and bosses!
Yes. I’ll have him maxed by next cycle. I think i need to put him on my titan teams.
Right now I’m saving all 2* and up trainers.
There are a few successful strategies to this trial but i will only discuss the last stage as the first 2 are a joke.
MOST IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER IS TO CHARGE SPECIALS BEFORE BOSS WAVE ALWAYS!!!
That being said -
Strategy 1 - snipers and 1 healer then a bunch of healing potions, mana potions, and revive scrolls. They each have a bunch of life but if you have 4 snipers charged going into the wave then that is 1 boss dead, charge up with mana and that is and that is a second boss dead, the 3rd boss should go down pretty easily after that and you might have to make a few matches.
Strategy 2 (my fav) - 3/1/1 setup with color stacking and heavy heals. Don’t forget 3 stacks of healing potions and 1 stack of rwvive scrolls. 2 hansel, 1 Mn/albi, joon, and Aeron/kitchen. The strategy seems pretty straight forward with keeping your heroes alive with healing and revive (save the scrolls for mn/albi) fornas long as it takes to let the mana effect from hansel kill friar/get those green tiles and then occasionally nuke with joon - rinse/repeat x3.
Strategy 3 - items, use some strong specials/color stacking and make sure everything is charged before the last wave starts - axes, bombs, dragon attack then a few specials = GG
Strategy 4 - use those continues (this strategy is not ideal) apparently SG values emblems at 75 gems per 10 emblems so plan accordingly.
Startegy 5 - MORE ITEMS!!! - time stops and tornadoes are boss killers - don’t forget that time stop makes them loose 100% mana so use it when they are almost charged.
Strategy 6 - take a page from the ucla/dator event strategy and just keep trying until you get that rng crazy unbelievable board.
Hope these help and i recognize that doing the final stage with maxed 3* as your team is really hard but not impossible.
First trial completed without a single item, but was a grind of 68 minutes. I don’t have a single hitter beeing monk or cleric…
Just came from my 8 hrs early shift and had to try hard not to fell asleep with the phone in my hand. Two times I caught up myself with closed eyes for a few seconds
Just throwing tiles is annoying for more than 10 minutes. Cleared the watchtower right before and right after the battle. Easy trial, but boring long…
