  • I just used some minor items, like healing, mana, or antidotes
  • I didn’t use any items

:dizzy: Special Questions for Trials of Decimation

  • Trials of Decimation has some good healer options — did you bring any healers?

  • Fighter Boldtusk and Wizard Kiril are hugely helpful for their mix of buffs and healing. Kiril is particularly helpful as a counter to Boss Ulmer’s defense debuff. Do you have either, and did you bring them?

  • The Wizard Class has several excellent mana controllers with Proteus, Merlin, Onatel, Hel, and Guinevere. They can be an excellent approach to preventing the Bosses from firing in the first place. Do you have any of these heroes, and did you bring any of them along?

: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?

This time, I am thinking about RAINBOW team:

Work quite well because Isarnia lower the defense of the bosses, Kingston lower the attack of the bosses, all bosses can pretty much doing nothing… The only downfall is the counter attack of Elena was ineffective due to Kingston attack stat reduction.


Please add classes and bosses in the first lines of your scheduled posts. Thanks in advance. :slightly_smiling_face:

Who the heck cares for the number of whatever cycle it is?


All in all very nice posts, highly appreciated. :sunglasses:

I know, but it’s the main info that could be given in the very beginning. Every time I only want to know classes and bosses to compose the team and look if the emblems will be enough for a decent talent upgrade.

Changed my team slightly, took not fully maxed Lady Loki in, and some hero disappeared maybe due to costume. So the set up was 3:1:1 red.

After the second trial I had enough emblems to max Boldtusk +20

The final trial went fairly easy, because I had enough purple stones to feed Mana to Proteus. At this time I realised that the overwhelming feature of Lady Loki does not come into play, if the bosses do not fire their special at all. :smile:
I used one blue potion so Boldtusk could heal Lady Loki, who showed some impact.

Emblems in store for Guinivere and either Lady Loki or Fenrir. Trainer for Sartana, now 3/69.


Old team


Lost a lot of Blues before bosses

Took out Bones, then this happened :roll_eyes:
What a lovely board :man_facepalming:

Had to revive and crack a bomb, Tyr came back twice, but this one was a bit of a fail

Trainer for Gazelle
Emblems for Tyr, Ice Witch or the Monstress


Previously, I think I used 2x BT, Colen, 2x Proteus
This time I switched out my second BT for Elena +2

I did this quite easily except at the end i was receiving no reds to charge my BT to heal, somehow, even with near full health Oberon slapped Proteus, and she/he died… So I ended up with 1 Proteus dead. I kept getting enough purples to charge both proteus, so that was no problem. They didn’t fire a special once


Took this literally run out of blue tiles some how just wouldn’t come.
Used a few pots n arrows.

Emblems Kingston guin trainer mok-arr


Proteus, BT, JF, Kingston, Poseidon. Didn’t see any point shuffling the team around from last time. Used 4 minor mana and 1 super healing potion. No issues. The end.


Took out Kiril for 2nd C- Melendor, to increase tile damage on Ulmer and also alternate their def buffs against those strong slashes.

It was more of a defensive battle with just two attackers, but all went smoothly, each boss fired just once, minions and defense buffs made their attacks less significant, HoT counters Oberon 's DoT and firing C.Mel after Ulmer upturned his def down.
As a result, no item needed, and all heroes returned healthy.

Trainer and emblems saved for now, trying to optimize the use of iron and ham for upgrades & research.


Used an antidote, saved emblems, trainer to Alfie #2.



This team worked pretty well so far.

I love you Proteus, you’re MVP


My team this time:

My team this time:

  • Poseidon +10
  • Onatel +7
  • Kiril +c20
  • Boldtusk +c20
  • Proteus +18

Poseidon is up one talent; Proteus is up two.

I toyed with swapping in another hitter like Sartana or Elena for BT, since damage is a little hard to come by here, but ultimately decided not to. Probably a good thing, the way this one went. As usual, waltzed through the mobs and got to the bosses with all specials charged. Fired BT, Proteus and Poseidon, and held Onatel and Kiril for when I needed them. Looked like I was going to get enough yellow tiles to get a quick kill on Balthazar, but then they dried up. Bosses picked on Kiril no matter what I did. Used a few healing potions, ended up having to fire his heal before I wanted to, which meant he was nowhere near ready when Ulmer fired, and ultimately, Balthazar took him out while his defense was compromised. Not really that big a deal, as there is enough mana control here to make sure this one is never in doubt. Just kinda made me peeved. Oberon went down first (and second, thanks to revive), then Balthazar, and finally Ulmer.

Not enough fighter emblems for Poseidon’s next node. I should probably have waited to spread some fighter emblems to Magni when he’s maxed or maybe Elena, but I just really like Poseidon, I’m past the really expensive nodes until 19 now, and so I’ll probably just keep rolling with him. Thought about holding wizard emblems to get Onatel past node 8, but decided instead to start on Sartana, who I will take to +7. Just feel like she’s not getting enough burn right now, so maybe emblems will help. Trainer hero saved for the nonce. Gafar is too close to max, so I’d be wasting the XP on him. Next purple up is probably Quintus, so he’ll get a little jump start later today or tomorrow.


Same team as last time, except more emblems:

Start at bosses with full mana, but Colen quickly died to slashes:

Had to use some mana to charge merlin/proteus and some healing when proteus and merlin were in the red (and one antidote against poison)

Emblems saved for now, trainer for mok-arr (when Balthazar costume is finished)


Vanilla hero challenge -

Made it a little more difficult for myself by taking my Isarnia 3-4 instead of BT+18. And then went into boss stage without any heroes charged due to an annoying cascade. Colen fell to Balthazar early, but was able to take Balthy out in the next round. The other two didn’t give much trouble with Isa and Kirils buffs giving good heft to the damage dealers. Ended up being a surprisingly short battle with a couple of antidotes and minor mana for the healer.

No reset emblem. Emblems banked. Trainer to Tarlak


After 11 months of playing i got Proteus :slight_smile: so i decided to test run it on this class quest.

Colen+7 Kiril Kashhrek Sartana 3/70 Proteus 3/1

Weak team but Proteus is MVP .


My Team Last Time

My Team This Time

Kiril out and Hu Tao joins,… for color advantage and some variation use.
Notable change is: my 1st Proteus+19 (mana path) is now faster with 9x tiles, Troop lvl 17 (finally).

Other Option


Decent start.

Used some minor mana for proteus.


Emblems Fighter keep in inventory, still confused with the compate of my roster. I should actually pick one focus for this class, but well maybe later. Wizard for Kiril. Trainer keep for later use, maybe for Sartana, she is almost 3.70.
