🔵 [Dec 15, 2019] Trials of Piety Teams – Share Yours & Discuss!

My team last time.

My team this time. I was happy to have Lianna available for this one. I was also intent on ditching the fragile 4* that died repeatedly last time, so I brought in Ariel.

  • On the bench: Hansel, Gafar, Elk 3.70, Grazul 3.70, Rigs, Valeria, Wu, Li Xiu, Agwe, Boril, Jabbar, Wilbur 2, Chef BT
  • Up and coming: Viv 4.44

No issues in getting to the bosses with this crew. Everyone was ready to go, and I had two on-color diamonds to boot.

All three died simultaneously in the Great Cascade of '19. No items used. Trainer to Viv, emblems to Tarlak and Ma North.


Here is who I took last time on both:
Previous roster.

Here is who I took on my main this time:

I finally got to test out Hansel and get used to the mechanics of how he works. On the second stage I swapped out Boril and put in Rigard. Was actually a good idea as it kept Viv and Boril’s slash attacks from defeating my team. Luckily I already had my 3 star level 8 defensive troop on Rigard. Hansel along with Leonidas and Li Xiu kept both Viv and Boril in check. Mnesseus dispelled when needed. Gonna do my two alts later.

EDIT: Okay, forgot to post my two alts but here is who i took this time on my first alt:

It was pretty much those heroes but not in that order. I was pretty tired and ready to zonk out from a long day at work but wanted to get these out of the way. Jabbar was doing his job at suppressing Vivica’s healing. I hope I get some sand Empire heroes on my main in summer 2020. Cleric emblems went to Hawkmoon, and monk emblems went to Bane bringing him to +14 or 15. Don’t remember atm. :woman_shrugging:

Here is who I took on Alt #2:

The lovable bear came in handy against Joon in stage one (as that was all I could complete on this profile due to level wall). And Mnesseus hung on surprisingly well for a 1-1. Wu Kong was being a good Monkey Lord and making a majority of my tiles hit like a truck. Monk emblems went to my lovable bear buddy, clerics are being stowed for now.


The Hatter 4/80, Li Xiu 4/70, Wu Kong 4/70, Wilbur 4/70, Rigard+12

Some minor healing potions and one bomb to reduce Joons attack. Hatter is good at dealing with Boril’s riposte.


Reset log: Piety, Shadows, Mysticism, Piety


My team last time :point_up_2:
My team this time :point_down:

Major changes, got a rainbow team in there now. I figured this team would’ve went through unscathed but alas I had to spend a 75 gems to continue. Bleeping Joon. The trainer will go to Miki and the emblems to Valeria and Boril.


Hawkmoon+18, Li Xiu+6, Boril+3, Rigard+9, Wu Kong+12

Brought dragons, bombs, axes, and medium mana pots.

Started with two dragons early, as the monks both resisted the burn from the first one. Was handling the bosses okay, but I think I lost Hawkmoon eventually. Also ran out of mana eventually topping off Rigard and Boril, so at that point I used some more items to avoid the endless healing loop. I think two axes finished the job to avoid another round of healing by Tuck.

Feeder went to current yellow project Hu Tao. Cleric emblems banked for now, Wu got a +1.


Can’t complain about this Trial, pretty strong team!

Done and dusted, no items:

Stayed patient to work my way through Friar, he was tough to put down. Kunchen eats the emblems to move up two more tiers :grin::smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


My Team Last Time

My Team This Time

Mostly just for fun, I decided to try a notably different team this time:

The Battle

Health management was a little touch-and-go at times for Hansel, Jabbar, and Gafar, but the healing reductions and mana control were nice counters to Friar Tuck, and the color stack made more sense against Joon.

I think on the whole this was a nice team to switch to.

Shiny New Emblems

Joon and Hansel each stepped up one node.

Holding Out for a Hero

Though I’ve been routinely off-color feeding my yellows to purple heroes, I decided to hold onto the Trainer Hero for now.

I’m closing in on finishing Proteus 4, Caedmon 2, and Triton 2, and then I’m taking a hiatus on hero leveling until I use my 50 EHT in January, hoping for Buddy at least. I’m 2 Darts away from being able to max Leonidas, so I figure it doesn’t hurt to see if I happen to get them by the time I resume leveling heroes in a couple weeks.

Otherwise the Trainer Hero can go to Buddy/Mother North/Vela/Santa or Lianna (who’s sitting around waiting to see if MN shows up, since I only have 5 Tonics).


I take it your a fan of Vela?


Or just not a fan of Grimble :grin: lettin my EHTs rip on 1/1 too


If Rudy, Bud, Santa, Mum and Goatie are (or almost all of them) on your bench already, there will be nothing to go for now.

Going off topic, but trial is over so I’ll be bad now.

I have 25 EHT. I got Rudolph, Buddy, and Santa last year. Have done ZERO pulls in December.

I was debating holding for the bunny’s, of which I have none. Not sure I want to go for that low chance at Mother North. I decided to go this time but wait for January and Vela. I have 5 scopes so no concern. I have 15 tabards! As for blue and purple 5* heroes, I have:

  • Magni +7
  • Ariel +6
  • Isarnia +1
  • Richard 4.43
  • Thorne 1.1
  • Ursena +13
  • Domitia +7
  • Seshat +7
  • Obakan 4.80
  • Obakan 1.1
  • Obakan 1.1
  • Obakan 1.1

I guess I could hold for s3, but don’t think that’s best as likely other ways to obtain.

So, is my decision correct with this limited info? Grimble to niche and I don’t need a purple tank. Vela better option for me. No need to wait for bunnies? Thoughts!
