(hat tip to JAWS_3D for this question)

  • Yeah, I nuked the bosses from space. Ripley would approve.
  • I used some items to finish off the bosses, but it wasn’t the full arsenal
  • I used support items like mana, banners, healing, and maybe a battle item or two, but nothing too crazy
  • I just used some minor items, like healing, mana, or antidotes
  • I didn’t use any items

:dizzy: Special Questions for Trials of Survival

  • Trials of Survival is well-named for its general lack of healers in the Barbarian and Rogue Classes — how did you do without healers?

  • Or are you lucky enough to own Brynhild or Puss in Boots?

  • The Barbarian and Rogue Classes have a lot of heavy hitters — are you able to put together a strong offensive team?

:grey_question: Standard Questions for All Trials

  • Did your team change notably since last time?
  • Have Costumes caused changes to your team?
  • Did changes to your team make the Trials any easier or harder?
  • What items did you use, if any?
  • What are you doing with your shiny new Emblems?
  • If you beat Stage 3, who’s eating the 3* Trainer Hero?
  • Anything else interesting to share?

Should be easy for me…

Team Power: 3,638
Peters (+5) / Miki / Brynhild (+19) / Jott +15) / Grimm (+14)

Gretel, Little John, Scarlett and Kelile are my only other maxed hero I could use or a 3/70 Malosi.
No to both.

Grimm - Jackal - C. Li Xiu - Malosi - Alice

Had Brynhild but decided to attempt it without a healer and go with a 3-2 color stack. Was fairly smooth, No heroes lost, 1 small antidote, 2 minor mana and 10 minor healing potions used.

No reset token. Emblems banked. Trainer to Alice.


Peters, Kelile, Gravemaker, Gormek and Grimm. Since I don’t have any healers in these classes, took a lot of healing potions just in case. Wasn’t too hard, spent some healings so that I come to bosses with full health.

Emblems for GM and Jackal, trainer for Marjana.


Classic heroes challenge accepted! Or at least, that was the plan… I accidentally brought along Jot, and the moment I pressed the ‘fight’ button I realised I messed up…

O well. I benched Brynhild, Gravemaker and Malosi.

I brought this team, and no items used despite no healer so I’m pleased.


Completed with same team as previously used:
Grimm, Costume Richard, Domitia, G. Jackal and Malosi
Used a purple banner and a couple of bombs
Note to self - I need to max Brynhild for next time to see how that goes


Almost done with the vanilla challenge…

Little John, costumed Li Xiu, Grimm, Marjana, Scarlett

I figured that LJ plus Li would make a good combo to slow down the bosses, while the other 3 focus on killing. stocked up on healing items and antidotes as well - especially healing items, as I don’t have a single healer for this trial.

Benched - Inari, Margaret, Danzaburo, and my newly-ascended Malosi

Reached the boss stage with all specials charged. Targeted Azlar first, as that AoE is a pain. Left Scarlett for last, as her Rogue talent kicks in a lot… Azlar did fall first to specials, followed by Nashgar to a nice tile cascade. Ended up using only antidotes and healing potions.

Sadly, wasn’t able to take a screenshot - dang it! I looked away from my phone as Scarlett died, and came back to the reward screen. So instead, here’s a screenshot of the team and of Recent Activity.

Pros of this trial: the bosses are frailer than, say, Trials with Paladins or Clerics, so my high-attack team managed fairly well, even without relying on specials.


Thanks to miki, not even 1 boss got loaded :slight_smile:


I got very arrogant on this one and then was given no blue’s at the bosses lol.
I ended up losing Grimm and almost Peters. I just didn’t want to use any items. And I had killed Scarlett very fast.

But no items used.
Trainer will go to Elena, I am finally finishing her now I completed Jean-Francois. Elena is about 4/50 I think.


Grimm+11, Gretel 4/70, Malosi 4/80, Jackal+12, Grave+6

Gretel replaced Brynhild from last time. Decided to ditch a half-healer in favor of more mana control. Azlar was down to less than 30% health after I fired all my specials and cleared the board of yellows. Had to throw some mana pots at Gretel to prevent Scarlett from firing but was well worth it. Azlar dropped first, followed by Scarlett, neither firing their special once. Nashgar went off once but I didn’t care since I had everybody charged up again. Grimm+Jackal is a very lethal combination because tiles (especially yellow) start doing ludicrous damage.

Trainer and emblems saved.


Same team

Not a very good board

At least got the Big boi first


I hate her dodge

Emblems saved, trainer for Gazelle
Ive said it so many times and havent done, i need to level my other 2 Grimms :rofl:

Took this… took gormek 3/60 out for the shark :slight_smile: this was close really close haha :joy:
Used some items.

Everything in storage at the moment


No items needed.
No reset token received.
No loot used so far.
Trainer to Marjana.

Nice boss battle:


For me and my poor roaster it’s usually hard to beat 3rd stage without any healer in the team, but I did it this time! Axes and bomb attack were esstentials, but this 3* heroes are really fragile.


My Team Last Time

My Team This Time

Finally 2nd Brynhild is maxxed now, and join to the party.
Other Option


Decent start with full mana ready.

Nice with 3x blue double Grimm and Miki silence. And double Brynhild for complete healer. :muscle: :+1:
Finally without using items on Trial of Survival :muscle:


Emblems Rogue: Scarlett is already at +18 (optimal), now continue for Brynhild (plan both to be +7). Barbarian currently still hoarding (1017 in inventory). Trainer keep later either for JF or Noor. Not yet decide which should ascend (already have the 6th rings yesterday mount Umber).


I couldnt do the trial yet because the crash thing and because i have to fill a red chest. I will try later or maybe if sg give us a we flask.

Is this the only trial without a healer to use?

Sorry i see there is brynhild which i dont have

Only Brynhild and Puss in Boot currently I think.
