Well, don’t have any 4 star greens up to snuff to back to ye ol 2 holy, 2 dark and 1 blue.


This is what I’m going with:


Does Wu buff riposte ?¿?

No, unless it’s for the other side hitting you :stuck_out_tongue:

Riposte is a return of a % of damage dealt.


Defence Team

Update: swapped buddy and Mel around so buddy is now tank. Removed Kiril for G. jackal to get some more firepower in there… Moved Rigard to the left wing to get him activated first.


Buddy ftw!!


My tank would be Kashrekk or Gadeirus. Who is the best ?

I am thinking of putting this team mainly because of the 10% defense boost from the Atlantis family, but if anyone has a better suggestion I am happy to hear. All possible heroes available are also shown. Thanks in advance. :slight_smile:

Bad tournament for me, since my best epics are red. No Buddy, nor epic costumes… My only solution is to set Gad tank and Triton flank (having buffs and same family), hoping the slow tank to get to fire :slightly_smiling_face:

P.S. I guess this will be another tournament when my alt will surpass my main. I have much better 4* heroes there. Costumed Li +19, probably tank and Peters +19 probably wing.


Three healers is one too much. Put a sniper instead of Kiril or Rigard. And I don’t know the stats of costume Melendor but doesn’t have Buddy the tankier stats?

Something like this:


I will setup mono green like this…

But no buff at all… :thinking:
Buddy is still at 4.23 and I’m not sure if I can level fast to max, I still level per-color.
My roster…

Any advice is very welcome… @Scarecrow, @Olmor… or anyone.

I would level Buddy, no matter how expensive it is, even with TC 19. See my friend, this is that kind of emergency I was talking about in many threads. TC 11 should have at least 400-500 feeders, all the time, for emergencies only :slightly_smiling_face:

I actually very very low recruits since yesterday, already doing so many TC19 :sweat_smile: But Atlantis Rises is coming in 4 days, so no big deals.

OK, if I sacrifice my 3x 4* trainers (purple, blue, red), and 23x 3* trainer (3x green, 20x rest colors), maybe it can be max.

And what is best defense setup position?

Use Buddy as tank, Melendor left flank, Rigard left wing and replace Kiril with a fast hiter. ( Triton )

Caedmon, Mel, Buddy, Hansel and for the right wing you don’t have to set green. Best wings are rogues. So Jackal as last hero.

@Scarecrow…what you think of my defense for this Tournament?
