  • I used some items to finish off the bosses, but it wasn’t the full arsenal
  • I used support items like mana, banners, healing, and maybe a battle item or two, but nothing too crazy
  • I just used some minor items, like healing, mana, or antidotes
  • I didn’t use any items

:dizzy: Special Questions for Trials of Decimation

  • Trials of Decimation has some good healer options — did you bring any healers?

  • Fighter Boldtusk and Wizard Kiril are hugely helpful for their mix of buffs and healing. Kiril is particularly helpful as a counter to Boss Ulmer’s defense debuff. Do you have either, and did you bring them?

  • The Wizard Class has several excellent mana controllers with Proteus, Merlin, Onatel, Hel, and Guinevere. They can be an excellent approach to preventing the Bosses from firing in the first place. Do you have any of these heroes, and did you bring any of them along?

:grey_question: Standard Questions for All Trials

  • Did your team change notably since last time?

  • Have Costumes caused changes to your team?

  • Did changes to your team make the Trials any easier or harder?

  • What items did you use, if any?

  • What are you doing with your shiny new Emblems?

  • If you beat Stage 3, who’s eating the 3* Trainer Hero?

  • Anything else interesting to share?

Team Last Time:

Click to Expand

Team This Time:

Made the change & put in Kiril for Elena to give me the healer I was missing!

Other Options

5* Heroes

  • Elena - 4/80
  • Magni - 3/70
  • Isarnia - 3/70

4* Heroes

  • Sir Lancelot - 3/70
  • Boldtusk - 4/70
  • Melendor (Costume) - 4/70
  • Merlin - 4/70
  • Kashhrek - 4/70

Result & Outcome

  • As usual, left the first two stages to be just done with Auto-Play.
  • Final 4k stage I played through the mobs without difficulty. Having kiril meant I didn’t need to really worry about health & healing.
  • Boss Round went in with a couple nice diamonds on the baord and special skills charged (as usual).
  • Killed off Oberon first as usual, followed by Balthazar & finally Ulmer.


  • Reset Token - NO
  • Wizard Emblems - into stock-pile (now 153) for when I finally get around to using them… probably on Proteus but hey…
  • Fighter Emblems - pushed me to 61/50 needed for node 14 on Yunan (so YAY!)
  • Trainer - fed to Victor, now at 3/29

Possibly one of my best teams now for trials. Done the first 2 stages but only have 8 energy so i need to wait 2 hours for 12 more. I have my only upgraded forge upgrading to lvl 18 so can’t craft bombs or Dragon attacks so I will rely on what I have put in my battle items in the photo.

I think I can do it. Maybe i should put kashhrek in the middle of Proteus and kiril. I have another Proteus at 3/60 that I could replace ulmer with. What do you all think?

Possibly dumb question but i rarely use miracle scrolls.
DO i need at least one hero still alive before I can then use the scroll, or can ALL 5 die, then I have the option to use it instead of Gems, or what?


Same team
Last time Isarnia was 3/70

Good board to start

Then Gwen was left as all 3 fired so had to revive

Lots of choices for the trainers, had a good week with my TC20s, Azlar, 2x Joon and Viv



Yes you need at least one hero still alive go use the scroll.

I would move kashhrek so that he is flanked by Proteus and Colen.

Would also put in the second Proteus for Ulmer and stagger the firing.

Also recommend removing the larger health pots and replacing it with axes or bomb attack. Use them to nerf the bosses attack power.


Ineffective board, but no prob.
Panther had a nice dinner.
Guin up to +6.


Boss Clip:


Panther, BT, Pro, Poseidon, Magni


Team last time

This time I replaced second Proteus with 3-50 ish Kingston. I also learned from the last one and fired off Hu Tao much more often in the mob phases, Kingston too as that attack down softens the blows a bit. Much easier than last time. Also swapped that 3 star troop off of BT and gave him his proper 4* crit troop at lvl 11. Swapped out the healing for minor mana and Minor healing pots, worked better to get Proteus ready a few times and didn’t even use the medium mana pots. Antidotes helpful for the poison damage.

Trainer gets saved for Sartana but she can’t use it till I get another glove to ascend her past 2-60. Fighter emblems being saved for Kingston, Wizard emblems being saved for Sartana.


Took your advice thanks and it worked perfect.

Took a screenshot of my screenshot lol but you can see only my weakest Proteus died the rest had almost full health


BT, Hell, Yunan, Kiril, Sartana

Went quick, trainer went to Merlin…for experimental purposes. Was Considering Kingston instead of Sartana but why go with LESS evil?

Reset Emblem…NOT


My favourite trials, no items used. Sartana and 2 Proteuses are on the bench. Trainer hero went to Proteus. The emblems are for Hel and Magni.


My team

I fought the need to use health pots, as Onatel, Poseidon and Hel stayed healthy throughout the battle . Fortunately, Kiril and Kingston avoided eye contact with the hoards and although they were in critical condition they did not succumb to their injuries.

Wahoo - first trial using NO items :partying_face:. Trainer and emblems safe in my inventory for now.


My Team Last Time

My Team This Time

No change, only Panther is ascended and at level 4.67.

The Battle

Good fresh start, and very nice board.

Easy with this team, only use 1 mana for Proteus.


Emblems fighters and wizard keep for a while now.
Trainer goes to panther.


Same team as last time. This one is pretty smooth. I take out Balthazar first, then Oberon, then Ulmer, though once Balthazar is down Ulmer usually falls from tile damage. Proteus and Kingston work well together: proteus keeps everyone from charging but if he doesn’t charge up fast enough I can use Kingston to blunt the effects of any attack. Saves on mana potions.


Same team as last time, with more emblem ranks on Delilah and Onatel.

  • On the bench: Magni, Poseidon, Panther, Elena, Hu Tao, Sumitomo, Lancelot, Boldtusk x2, Sartana, Merlin, Proteus 2, Gandalf, Colen
  • Up and coming: Onatel #2 3.57, Isarnia 3.34

Only had about half the team ready as I went in, because I wasn’t paying close attention. Proteus and Onatel did their jobs, locking everyone down. Kingston’s debuff meant I didn’t need to worry much about regular attacks.

Ulmer fell first, a victim of being repeatedly targeted by Kingston. Oberon managed to eke out a special before I finished him with tiles.

Lastly, Balthazar succumbed to the Eye of the Prophet.

Not sure what to do with the trainer. Emblems go to Delilah and Onatel.


I took out Guinevere+4 and replaced her with Hu Tao4/66 to get better attack special, I also had Proteus4/57, Elena+5, Kashrek+7 and Kiril+6 to use the full rainbow. I used 1 Titan-Shield, 2 Dragon storms and 5 100% Mana 4x Proteus, 1x Kiril. The bosses did not have a chance to fire their spec even once, and I got at least one diamond-tile in every color. So easy… Hu Tao will get the fighter emblems, most likely Kiril the books. 3* purple Trainer again for Seshat who will be maxed soon…


Ran isarnia hel guin magni and delilah


I Replaced a 3.60 Huo Tao with Boldtusk. The Proteuses make this the easiest trial for me. I used a couple of small healing potions but the bosses never fired. I’m going to leave Magni at +7 for a while and build Boldtusk up with emblems. I’m holding wizard emblems going forward until next Atlantis incase I’m able to pull Zeline. I have Seshat at 4.60 right now and am saving my 3 and 4 trainers until I have enough to finish her which is about the last 5 levels which I should be able to reach tomorrow or Friday with Atlantis farming.
