Another Aegir Tank Perfect Tournament!
Sadly i dont have one (full)…


Yep, the Aegir tournament. I’ll probably go:

Grimm +18

Boril is also an option, but I don’t see a natural fit for him with Aegir manning the center. I am considering throwing in a purple or two. Presumably Sabina (or another purple) will be the go to dispeller, given how much everyone is going to look to buff themselves. The only problem is that I have no purple buffers (Seshat, Proteus +17, and Cyprian of course, though he has the same problem as Boril).

I setup what I have, and let the rest matchmaking do the job…


Brace yoursef, Aegir + Zimkitha defenses are coming…


Of which I have neither. I’m light on blue 5*s and don’t like grimm even at +19 for flank, so going with kunchen instead. Can’t be that bad a choice.

Expecting to do badly this tournament. I have few 5*s, even fewer of which are maxed. Since my only blue 5-star is Master Lepus and not tank material, going with regular tower defence and subbing Boldtusk to replace the green.


Indeed and i dont have any of thoose :cry::sob::sob:

What do you think about this defense? Was considering Sonya but can’t find a good place for her.


Thoughts? My only maxed 5* blues are up there… I could add another 4* blue? I figured Poseidon because he puts up 2 buffs and increases Ariel’s defense.


Why Jackal?
Doesn’t hit hard, is fragile and only buffs for holy stacks.


Waiting forever (literally) for that last scope for my Aegir… he’d been long time maxed by now. And of course they have to pull yet another 5 star no green tournament within like few weeks. Gosh.

I would change their places into Kiril - Frida - Ariel - Poseidon - Hel


OK, should I change with red? BT ? or Poseidon 4.11 (in progress leveling).

Poseidon would be good imo.

Here’s my def.



OK, you have very nice defense… complete blue, and complete blue troops :+1:

Here is mine, and I give more talent to Boril, I think +3 is enogh, I have already used for Hansel+3, and will keep the rest for Rigard (hope from TC20 pull, my 1st TC20 start 3 hours ago).


I don’t have many 5*s as well, though at least I have access to my Blues and my Purples here.

Am thinking of going Inari / Seshat / Kiril / Lepus / Proteus or Sabina or Sonya or Triton.

Inari, Lepus and Seshat are my only maxed 5*s allowable in this tourney… and Kiril is a lock.

Sabina or Sonya might be best in the last slot as an additional dispeller though… but Triton adds another buff. Proteus is Proteus, but I’ve found him better on offense than on defense…


Makes sense. I don’t like double heals… but Kiril and Ariel seem great for this. Think I’m too low on heavy hitters?

Trying that setup. Although not sure if Alice will survive and if Wu’s a good thing.
Might change Wu for Rigard, still not sure.
