Anyone know if the Muggy skill is considered a buff?

Time for Brienne, Belith, Hisan, Muggy and Mnesseus.

Maybe some buffing wings or flanks of other colors, but green tanks are mandatory.

Go nature or go home. :wink:

How about This?

If it can be dispelled or it states that it can’t be dispelled then it’s a buff.

Which defense should I use?

Melia Belith Brienne Berden Muggy+3

Muggy Belith Brienne Melia Muggy+3

Berden Belith Brienne Tuck Muggy+3

For this tournament, which do you favor?

  1. Attempt to exploit the color restriction (no fire) by plugging in an all nature defense.

  2. Attempt to exploit the buff booster feature by plugging in buffers.

I assume most experienced players on the forum have enough heroes that they can easily go entirely one direction or the other (or any mix in between), but it is unclear to me which is better.

why not both?

I’m liking Melia for the buff AND the fact that she does a good amount of damage. I have a second Mnesseus but he’s not quite maxed yet (3-43). And I’m torn between putting in Belith to dispel the enemy and prolong the battle for my side… or just Chochin to dump damage onto the enemy.

Would I be better off with: Melia - Belith - Brienne - Mnesseus - Melia ?? I’m thinking maybe Belith keeping the team alive longer will give the Brienne buff more time to work down the enemy just with slash attacks?

EDIT: Oh, and I do have two maxed Muggy…??

I think so.

Chochin is an excellent tank in general, but given the color restriction, I think you’ll get notable benefit putting your center 3 or at least tank as greens.

Brienne seems like the best tank option of your available choices.

A healer isn’t always necessary, but it tends to help. And given Belith is perfect for this Tournament being green and a dispeller, I think it’s well worth including her.


Well you could replace one Melia with him…at which point you’ll be here:

I don’t want to see your team.

Here’s what I am considering. Mnessius will be maxed before start.

Is Melia buff + family bonus with Mnessy better than Berden?

@zephyr1 we can have same defense teams, will have to compare defense grades during this tournament :crossed_swords:

I’m thinking so, which is why I decided I’d swap her in place of Berden that I otherwise would have used.

I assume you decided to do that too. :wink:

Well, I will try like this.
