I think a 2* very fast tournament!!


I’m going with 5* buff booster no purple.
I also think @zephyr1’s gonna kill us if we start spamming this thread with predictions every Saturday night :slight_smile:


I’d like to see a 3* tournament. It’s been about 2 weeks since costumes were introduced and, based on odds, most awarded were 3*. This would be a good time to use them.

Ugh. I’m still trying to forget the last 3* tournament. I placed better this past week with no 5*s than I did two weeks ago with my loaded bench of rares. I do almost have Hawkmoon’s costume maxed though…

This who I am taking on my main:

My nature roster isn’t all that great anyway. Might change it though and maybe take out Sumi and put in my maxed Sonya instead…


I’m not sure yet but I think I’ll go with
Proteus - Wilbur - Misandra - Cyprian - Grimm.

IMO no green means it’s useful to put a blue tank, and possibly go all blue. I hesitate to add Kiril to the mix. He’s a healer but his bonus attack/defense may be useful.

None of these heroes are fully leveled up and I plan to focus on Wilbur who I think should be useful for this tournament as well as for many other things, including the Christmas challenge.


Best tank - Richard

Best flanks - Alice, Alasie, Finley, Magni, Lepus, GM, Kage, Victor, Misandra

Best wings - Alice! , Seshat, GM, Kage, Lepus, Zimkitha, Marjana

Another choice for an efficient tank, is a talented Athena or Misandra. Or Thorne, if you have none of those.


give me black knight as a tank all day long.

I setup with what I have so far…


I dunno …

… I have a good feeling about this …

My history on tournament defense is pretty dismal. Trying this set up. Not sure about Sonja. I have Wilbur +7 or GM +5.

Use your Gravemaker, he’s a hundred times better than Sonya. His dot comes in handy in blood battle


Thinking about this Defense here…
Other choices include these guys

I feel that I have a decent Defense set but please let me know if there’s anything else I could do…
@Scarecrow you told me to check with you first lol so here’s what I have that don’t fall into the heal category.

Edit- I’m considering putting Emblems on Richard and pulling from aegir …??? Thoughts?

I’m not sure if you are the one who I talked with, about those emblems. I know I told someone :smile: If Aegir is not your tank, then definitely you should give the emblems to Richard, only atk path (has a few anyway; where is not atk, then def).

About your defense - Seshat, Magni, Richard, Sartana, Marjana.

P.S. Just I fought a Marjana as wing; 3 dodge in a row. Imagine my words coming out from my mouth :rofl:


It was me actually… Gotcha ! Thanks


Thoughts? GM on bench. Ariel heal would be wasted but she gives a nice mana buff not to mention her attack stats decent for slash attack.


I am going with one of 2 options, both with Thorne at center. Do have Richard, pulled him right after taking Thorne to 4th tier. I’m leaning to the 2nd.

Maxed Thorne in between screen shots.
