My first instinct for Defense…which I’ll probably end up changing when I’ve slept. :sleeping:



I’m thinking kailani tank also.


I tank AoE DoT no heal.
No cleanse available this time.
Tyrum and GillRa are purple.
Shrub should protect.


Swapping Arman with Kailani would be more punishing for bad attacking boards.

I actually was thinking Arman as tank before I saved the first version. Healing during Rush Attack is incredibly powerful, so the debuff seemed potentially useful, plus he’s almost as tanky as Kailani. But then I thought maybe Kailani would be better to fire early.

One of the reasons I am considering Belith for flank and Muggy for corner.

Does -100% healing effect Bruiser Bro?

Rush means fast wipe.
Attack all with stackable DoT.
No cleanse, no riposte.
Ailments are most devastating.
Kailani just spreads dmg.
Shrub absorbs it…

That’s an excellent question. I’m not sure.

Part of me was also considering something like:

Since last time when all colours were allowed with the same rule and Shrubbear and Bauchan were almost unbeatable, I see no reason in setting a much weaker tank, just for the fact is yellow. Let’s not forget that only green remained with dispellers and they do just fine against a neutral colour as yellow (assuming Kailani is tank). But much worse against a red tank, as Bauchan. For one, I won’t change anything in my defenses since last rare tournament, when I had only A grade on both accounts during all 5 days (and finished on leaderboard, actually).


I don’t have Shrubbear. :man_shrugging:


Me neither on my main. Bauchan kept me at 13-1 last tournament. I will flank him with greens, Belith and Hisan.


Belith will dispel Shrub and Kailani

Ulmer will overwrite them ( though Shrub absorbs the rest of the hit )

3x green is looking like a good attack team this tournament ( Belith, Mnesseus, Brienne )


Bauchan will be nasty this tournament but Ulmer, and Gator, will be on a lot of attacking teams, so flank rather than center.

I do not have Shrub or Bauchan, but center Arman flanked by Belith and Bauchan should be annoying.

This makes sense last time bear and Bauch gave me a 6-0 defence. I’m rethinking this team.

So was the last time, since all colours were allowed. I don’t see your point. He and the bear are the best tanks in the game, especially with this rule.

Thoughts and suggestions? Have banes and pixies too.

With no purple, Arman’s HP effectively doubles to 1428 HP

Bauchan will often be attacked by 1x or 2x Blue. Both mana cut, and mana generation, has less effect during Rush Attack. Centers are usually taken out with tile damage not special skills.

But as flank, Rush atttack speeds up Bauchan special skill while Arman protects Bauchan from tiles.

Center Arman 3*+15 will also be annoying due to Revive. While monk Bauchan on flank will resist attacking Arman and Pixie.

Hawkmoon will face lots of Ulmer and Gato.

Melia is less useful since lots of 3* slow attack all heroes like Ulmer and Arman.

If you have them I would do

Ulmer, Belith, Arman, Bauchan, ?

?= Jahangir/ Ulmer/ Carver/ Arman/ Brienne / Bauchan/ Shrubbear / Muggy
